I got the Mailbag at Christmas with my money in Canterbury Magenta and absolutely love it. Sometimes I use it for school, put my notebook in the front part with the magnet and of course, my book and my iPad in the front. I am going to bring this when I go to London this summer. I recommend this one! As usual, I might get another Mailbag! Keep on making this product, Vera!

MY FAVORITE BAG!
This is the bag I was looking for. It fits my every need. Zippers for safety and plenty of room for other things. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bag. It is my favorite. Don't think I will go back to any other style I have just will buy this one in different patterns.

My New Favorite Bag.
I have several Vera bags that I love, but this one is by far my new favorite. I bought this in the Clementine, and love the fact that I can fit everything I need in it and still have room left. In addition, the bag is not bulky with everything in it, and it's not heavy. I bought the tech case to match which I clipped it to the front of the bag, and put my i-phone inside so now I never have to dig for my phone. I also love the inside pocket for quick access to my keys. I'm very happy with the crossbody function as opposed to carrying it on my shoulder. It is much more comfortable. So glad I bought this bag. It's the best.

Excellent Bag for a Techie on the Go
I had tried the Tote, but I ended up going back to a crossbody after lugging a tote full of gadgets everywhere. I LOVE THIS BAG. It carries my Euro Wallet (Canyon), Wristlet (Bittersweet) with my Nintendo 3DS inside, E-Reader Sleeve (Midnight Blues) with a Kindle Fire inside of it, Coin Purse (Canyon) full of minerals, Lanyard and Zip ID (Canterberry Cobalt), a couple of small makeup pouches with stuff like chargers and medications, and a lighter! I can even fit small things that I accumulate on the go as well! This is an excellent bag for a city girl, and I have it in Canterberry Cobalt. Thanks again, Vera!

Great for adult and teen!
Some say there are too many pockets! for me, that's the plus :-) I love that I can open the flap for my daily necessities: grabbing my wallet, chapstick, lotion, and such, and grabbing my phone out of the small front pocket. I like the back zipper for my not so daily use items such as handwipes, tissues, etc. I love my pens, and the zippered part keeps them secure and out of the way. With everything I carry, I can still fit an Ipad in it, either pocket (and I carry LOTS). I also bought one for my daughter for high school...she can also fit lots! I love that you can carry it on your shoulder, or as a crossbody, as a purse or a tote. If you do overstuff the purse, the flap will tend to "stay open" but that's to be expected...Love this purse (and I have lots of VB!)

Perfect bag for this mom!
I looked at the various Vera bags in stores and online for months before finally deciding on the Mailbag. The Mailbag is awesome! I purchased the bag in Baroque and like it so much I ordered the Provincial for spring and summer and may eventually purchase it in black. As a mother of a toddler and consultant for a direct sales company, it is great to have a purse that fits the essentials (including the zip around wallet, small cosmetic bag, etc.) along with a few catalogs and snack items for my son. The adjustable handle allows for not only carrying as a crossbody but also as a shoulder bag. I had the front flap of the bag monogrammed by a local business to add an extra pop of color as it allows for monogramming without jeopardizing any of the pockets. If you are looking for a crossbody that allows for organization and style, the Mailbag is a perfect choice!

Multi purpose bag for mother of 3
I love this bag! I am a fan of cross body bags when going on outings (shopping, park, etc.) with my kids because I always want my hands to be free. I have used both Coach and LV cross body bags - which they were convenient- but the space was lacking. This mailbag allows me to fit all the different items I like to carry around on little trips without being to bulky - and I love the vibrant colors (I bought the va va bloom). Lots of compartments, very secure, built very sturdy. I am going to test this bag on our next Disneyland trip. I believe it will do well carrying my snacks, water, camera, wallet and other miscellaneous items.

Great Bag for Work
I love this for my Workbag. Under the Flap in taller pocket I keep a multiple pocket folder this holds my work schedule, and other forms and information I need for work. In the shorter Pocket I keep the large cosmetic from cosmetic trio with a small notebook, sticky notes, pens and pencils, and smaller papers and receipts. In Back Zipper Pocket I keep my feminine products. In 2 inside slip pockets I keep my checkbook in one and I would stick keys in the other. In main compartment I keep my Kindle Fire in a sleeve; Small Cosmetic with Wet Ones Wipes, Travel Deodorant, Lotion, Tissues, Various Wipes, and manicure items. I also have older style Wristlet with small snacks, chapstick, gum, mints, and cough drops. When desired I could fit in my Nintendo DS XL and still could zip the top. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Great for work!
I purchased this bag after I saw one that my co-worker was carrying. I love the pockets. There is an outside pocket for my Kindle. I do not need to carry a second bag just for it.
The downside to the purse I have is the outside magnet comes off the inside of the flap. I sent one purse back for this issue and got another one just like it. Within a week the magnet had once again came undone.

This is a fantastic purse! It has so many pockets and places to store things. I personally am a big fan of purses with flaps (as opposed to zip closure). I have this in Midnight Blues and it is such a beautiful bag. I would say this purse is excellent for anyone who has to carry around several things and still wants their hands free for some easy shopping. Way better than carrying a shoulder bag around. I would definitely recommend this purse!
