On the Go
Preferred the former "on the go" bag
I just starting using my new style "on the go" handbag. I like the inside zip pocket and that the middle inside slip pocket is a little wider. BUT the zipper pocket on the outside has been shortened because of the side seams on the end of the bag. I was able to carry my pocket calendar but now it barely fits and is a struggle to remove. (Yes, I still carry a handwritten pocket calendar!) :-) The side pockets also seem shorter. I put my reading glasses in one of them and the glasses don't completely fit in there and I'm concerned they'll fall out. I'd put my keys in the other pocket and now the keys don't fit there. I much preferred the older style.

Great improvements to an already perfect bag!
I have the OLD style "On the Go" in *Tea Garden* and absolutely love its versatility and I was super sad when I heard it was being retired. I wasn't sad for long because I then heard Vera was simply "re doing it" and she did it right for sure! I love the new up to date pockets on the side which will work with a larger phone with a case on (I have the iPhone with the Vera Bradley phone case on it). I love that they added a zipper to the inside and made the pockets a bit bigger as well. Glad to see they kept the outside zip pocket as well, for that is so nice when dealing with coupons or whatever else you need to get to quick w/o having to dig in your purse! I bought the NEW version in my new favorite *Limes Up* and it looks awesome in this style. I've already received many compliments on it. And last but NOT least, thank you so much for making the strap LONGER for the cross body version of it, the other one I can't make crossbody so it stays as just a shoulder bag. Great improvements! I will be purchasing this bag again for sure! :o)

Bring back the OLD On The Go!
the ON THE GO bag is my "go to" bag- about the only style I buy BUT that being said: please bring back the older style or at least the majority of the features. The outside zip pocket used to be on the front and the opposite of the interior pockets- now they are on the same side which in turn restricts putting things in and out easily of the interior pockets if you have even just a few things in the outside pocket. I have the worst time trying to insert my IPhone into any of the interior pockets I've given up. the outer end pockets won't hold it either if it's in any type of case. The handle also seems to be more flimsy- I keep both sides about even to carry on my shoulder and they constantly are getting tangled. I'm not sure why the features were revamped but the outside zip and interior pockets NEED to go back as they were.
