On the Go
Please bring back the OLD version!!
This used to be my favorite purse from Vera Bradley - I would buy a new pattern every year, sometimes two. Unfortunately, even though customers loved the old version and consistently gave it 5 stars, Vera Bradley made the not so smart decision to change it :( Like many others, I am disappointed that the outside zip pocket was made smaller - the old version's pocket was large enough to fit commercial sized envelopes and larger coupon mailers in it. Another change to the bag was to move the three small inside pockets over to the opposite side of the bag, so that they are now on the same side as the outside zip pocket, which causes the bag to weigh down too much on one side. I don't understand why VB felt the need to fix something that was not broken. I'm so disappointed that I am still using an old On the Go bag from over two years ago. I'd love to buy a new On the Go bag, but refuse to do so until VB brings back the old design.

On the go is an awesome bag!
I now only buy this bag. Believe it or not I can put my canon rebel and a lens safely tucked in the bag with my passport and important items and off I go. It has been all over Ireland with me and the US. Its versatility is amazing!! Not too big not too small. Perfect crossbody and the straps are very comfortable !

almost perfect restyle
The old style OTG had a too short strap drop. Problem fixed! The On The Go is so awesome (to me) because the front is bare. You get to show off your beautiful pattern without a pocket, piece of trim, or some design break messing up the pattern. A lot of Vera patterns require space to show it's beauty and not look misaligned or odd. On The Go gives you that in a crossbody style. A minor concern is larger phones such as the Samsung Galaxies probably wont fit in the side slip pockets. My iphone 5 with a Hybrid Hardshell case fits, but it's very snug.

Best Purse Ever!
I have 7 "On the Go" purses in different colors. I absolutely love the style and size. The end pockets are perfect for my iphone, sunglasses or keys. There are pockets on the inside and outside. The outside pocket has a zipper, which makes it more secure. I love the way the top of the purse zips closed. The shoulder strap is very comfortable and adjustable. It could be used as a cross body strap. Every time I fall in love with a new Vera color, I always get the "On the Go" purse, along with the matching wallet and checkbook cover.

Too Small For Me
Not my favorite bag, but if you pack light it may work for you. I think I needed it to be a bit wider.

Great Bag for Moms!
I purchased this in Citron and couldn't be happier! The size is perfect! Just big enough for all of my things, but not too cumbersome. It can be comfortably worn over the shoulder or cross-body. Love having the back zip pockets and the side slip pockets (snug fit for an iPhone). Would purchase again!

Love this bag!
Just enough room for essentials without being bulky and heavy. Hobos and totes are my favorite bag silhouettes, and this one is great. Purchased this with the small cosmetic bag and the turnlock wallet. Those fit perfectly, with room left for a LARGE bunch of keys, a brush, and a few other small items in the main compartment. Three inside slip pockets handle an assortment of pens, a pair of reading glasses, and an aluminum credit card wallet. I haven't even gotten to the inside zip pocket or the outside zip pocket. Pop the cell phone in one of the outside end pockets. Haven't figured out what to put in the other outside end pocket. Love this bag!

Love this bag!
I ordered this bag from a VB outlet in Va Va Bloom since it is retired and I love it! It has just the right amount of room and love the cross-body aspect of it. I'm in my 60s and shoulder bags hurt my shoulders and don't care for hand bags. I plan together more VB cross body styles!

Not too big and not too small! PERFECT!!
This bag is so versatile. I love that it is the PERFECT size with thick straps. I have three of these purses and absolutely love them. Lots of pockets to store odds and ends. GREAT PURSE!

Originally I got this bag to use primarily for travel. Well I "moved" into it for a trip 2 months and haven't "moved" out yet! It's a great everyday bag -- not too big, not too small. I especially like the cross body for wear over my winter coat -- it's hard to keep my shoulder bag straps on my shoulder when bundled up with cold weather! My iPhone (with Commuter series Otterbox cover) does fit fairly securely (about 2/3 of the phone is in the pocket) but I prefer to carry my phone zipped into the main part of the bag in one of the slip pockets. My reading glasses go in one of the outer pockets and my sunglasses go in the other. The 3 slips and long zippered pocket inside are superb for organization and the long zippered pocket is great for my car keys, pens, lip balm. Maybe when spring arrives, I'll carry my other favorite, the Lisa B (why VB EVER discontinued that one, I'll never know!) but for now, "On the Go" is my "go to bag"!
