On the Go
My go to purse
I really like the space distribution of zippers, pockets, strap. and space in general. The previous "on the go" had a wider zipper on the back side and less rounded pockets on the sides-I liked those features. I also like the inside zip pocket in a real lining of the new model. I like the wider strap of the previous model, but the new one is fine. It really is my go to purse though. whenever I use another purse I am happy to get back to these purses. I have at least 8 of them!

Love style but not change
I have carried this purse in the Java Blue for a couple years now. By far my fave purse! But realized it was time for a new one when the strap started to show major wear along with the side where I carry lip gloss and such in the inside pockets. I figured I couldn't go wrong by ordering the same style... But not happy with all the changes. I used to carry important papers in outside pocket such as mail but the size has been cut down and not as useful as before. The pockets on the inside use to be on the opposite side as the outer pocket but now they share the same wall and makes that side of the purse a bit bulky. I do love the fact that the hardware is now metal instead of plastic and that a small zip pocket was added to the inside. Pros outweigh the cons so I won't let it stop me from considering in the future but think I will check out in store before buying online.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this "little" bag!.....
I bought this super bag in Provencal recently from a little shop near my home that was going out of business. All the Vera Bradley was 50% off, and lots of women had a wonderful field day! I purchased my Bowler (the new design, have never had the older one) the same day and was happy with it, but this "On the Go!" I just adore. All my adult life I have carried enormous leather handbags, and it is such a relief to finally be using something lighter, smaller, prettier, and more fresh-looking. I have already received many compliments on this adorable bag. But, the real plus is that it looks rather diminutive but holds just about everything I really need during the day. The interior pockets are great, with one that holds my smart phone beautifully, and the zip pocket on the front is wonderful, too, for my keys and a little meditation book I keep with me. Inside I can fit my wallet, my small cosmetic case, several pairs of glasses, my comb, mints, my checkbook, a couple of pens, my little chaplet (prayer beads) and several other small items. The small outside pockets (on either side) are super for change. Perfect! It also has a wonderful strap that is adjustable so I can wear it longer or use it double-handled if I wish. I turned 51 in July, and it seems as I get older I want to carry around less "stuff," travel a bit lighter. This bag is super terrific! I will definitely purchase another in a new color sooner than later.

this is my first EVER Vera Bradley bag & LOVE IT!! Bought it in Baroque & love the colors. I like green but I didn't want too much. This bag had the perfect amount of green mixed with back, white & gray. The size is almost perfect, I like smaller bags but couldn't find any I actually liked with the pockets & etc that I wanted. So this bag has grown on me & plan on buying more when I find a pattern I like.

Best Bag Ever
I have this bag in at least six different colors. Its best features are the outer small pockets, the outer zip pocket, and the adjustable strap. I carry it almost everyday wherever I go. My last one is the solid black. I have many Vera bags, but "on the go" is my favorite.

Great for "On the Go"
My bag is Paisley Meets Plaid", I LOVE it! It is a great size. Has plenty of room for everything I need to carry on a daily basis. It is light weight and very pretty. I would like to see a small zipper compartment on the front of the bag, this would be great for keys, I.D., or anything you need quick, but don't want to loose. The slide pockets on the ends are nice for keys or glasses, but they have fallen out if the purse falls over. Tthe interior is great, plenty of slip pockets and a big zipper pocket for plenty of organization. The cross body is so convenient when shopping or running errands. All in all a well organized bag and beautiful colors.

Love the bag - but a little too small
I have numerous VB bags, but like cross body hobo's for travel. This bag is a great little bag, but really needs to be larger. For those of us that like a little extra room to carry additional items: it needs to be larger. Say 3" wider and 3" taller. I'm always elected to carry hubbies extra glasses, as well as hand sanitizers, etc. VB had several hobo's in past that was perfect, but no longer has. Please bring back some of the older versions, in new updated fabrics.
