BRING IT BACK!!!!
I have used Vera Bradley for 7 years and I have loved it. A couple years ago I fell in love with the little backpack a couple years ago, it was the perfect purse, it was able to fit everything i needed in it, and more, and distributed the weight evenly on my back and reduced the back pain I have. This is the only purse I will use. Now, you retire it for this backpack which is far to big to use as a purse, it looks like I am going to school and as a college graduate I do not want that. PLEASE bring back the little backpack or you will lose a loyal costumer!

sent from heaven
This bag is actually my best friend. No joke. It is the single most useful thing since the medium cosmetic.
First off- the size. THIS IS NOT A BOOK BAG! If that is what you are looking for, do NOT get this. But for a purse backpack, this is PERFECT! It fits a surprising amount. For example, at theater conferences, it holds
1. Dance clothes (yoga pants, tee shirt, ballet flats)
2. full sized water bottle
3. iPhone, charger, and buttery pack
4. several granola bars
5. lots of random purseish things (lipstick, lotion, small notebook, etc)
When in use as a ballet bag, it holds
1. pointe shoes
3. hair stuff
5. leotard and tights
It also fits a macbook air (11 inch) in the main pocket but does not have any padding, so I wrap mine in a pair of PJ pants or something before tossing it in.
quality- I've had mine for a year and it looks brand new. I've washed it twice and it doesn't show it all.
Other- it is easy to carry. VERY easy to carry, actually. overall, just... perfect. Love it.

Own one for every season!
I think customers need to know that this is a backpack "purse". Although the dimensions are given, it is not as big as the typical student backpack. With that said, it is the perfect size for a "workhorse" purse. It is loaded with compartments for everything and the best part is you can be hands free when you need to be. I love this style and own several for the different seasons. They hold up so well and even wash well too!
