On the Go
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"!

I love this bag! Bought one in VB store and just ordered 2 more on line. Love the adjustable strap and the outside pockets are just the right size for my cell phone and other small items I need when I shop.

My new favorite!
My boyfriend got this bag for me in the new Venetian Paisley for Christmas and it is my new favorite bag! I used to adore the Mailbag style, but I found it to be a little too big for me, and the Hipster style is just too small. The On the Go is the PERFECT size. It fits my essentials (wallet, keys, phone, lip balm, and lotion) very comfortably. The outside pockets are very small however, so I usually just stick my headphones or chapstick in them. Regardless, this is my new favorite style and I will definitely be buying more patterns!

I have had this bag for about a month now. When I got it I didn't think it would fit much, but it has actually turned out just perfect for me! I got it in Rhythm and Blues. It fits "my big fat wallet" (and like the name says, my wallet is definitely big, and is a full size non Vera one#. I also have my checkbook with Vera cover in it, Vera soft case for my sunglasses, AND it fits the Vera Mirror Cosmetic (turned vertical). And it still zips!!!!! I keep my cell phones in the zippered pocket outside. I also love the long strap. I would def buy another one of these bags.

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.
