Rated 4 out of 5 by BestTexasGal Great bag for someone who needs organization
I got tired of carrying expense, heavy, leather designer handbags that were killing my arms so my daughter talked me into looking at Vera Bradley - which she loves. After looking at several of the handbags in the collection I chose the Bowler because of the longer handles. I have been carrying the bag now for a month and I love it. I can put anything in it, there are inside pockets for almost anything you want to have handy. Plus there are 2 nice size pockets on the outside, one I use to hold my iPhone in it's case and the other my eyeglass case which is a larger size - 2 things I need to grab quickly. On the other side of the bag there is another outside deep pocket with a zipper where I can keep items I also need quickly but want secured. Plus it's awesome to have a handbag unzip down on the sides where I can just reach into it and grab what I need when I'm in the car. What can I say, I love the Bowler bag design and recommend it for busy moms.
Oh and yes, the bag is at a good weight to begin with so my arm and shoulder no longer hurt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chergehr New Bowler style
The old Bowler style seems a better quality esp. on interior. It is not quilted inside like the old model, just thin fabric. No piping on the inside
pockets either. Some other changes:
New is more triangular in shape. Older model was more rounded at bottom. . Zippers on the outside and inside are shorter on the new style. Can't fit in what I used to.
2 pockets on the outside do not have magnetic flaps anymore.
The straps on the new style seem a tiny bit longer, which I like.
Instead of 3 open pockets on the inside there are now 6. A good thing.
Both models are about the same size and hold a lot, yet don't look too big. I haven't used it yet, so I can't comment on it's durabilitly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CzechSam Perfect organization !
I love this bag. It is perfect to line your items up in the bag with no tumbling over. Plenty big for carrying a book, water bottle, wallet, makeup bag, medicines, had sanitizer, and more ! I got this bag in Canyon. I love this bag ! I usually get buyers remorse, but not with this bag! I can't recommend this bag enough. Oh yeah, the straps are plenty long to wear on your shoulder and it not to be right under your armpit. The straps do not slide down your shoulder either.
