Large Laptop Tote
Perfect for a teacher!
I absolutely love this bag for teaching. I teach 2nd grade and love that this bag is ultimately a file organizer! I've used the Vera style previously, and also have a smaller tote, Get Carried Away, and Miller. I was in search of a new teaching bag because I felt that the Vera was getting too heavy and I was losing items at the bottom because of how deep it was. After multiple times of visiting the VB store and checking out their bags I decided on this one. I don't use it for my laptop though. I do put my iPad, portable hard drive and chargers in the padded center section. In the two outer slots I keep my plan book, grade book, papers to grade, and teachers manuals. A lot can fit in here and I find that I'm even more organized with these three slots. I find that since the weight distribution is horizontal rather than vertical with the Vera, the bag is lighter and easier to carry. I bought it in the Plum Crazy color. If you were like me in search of a new teacher bag-this one's it!

Great for school!
I bought this tote in Plum Crazy because I was looking for a new bag to replace the Vera that my dog chewed up. I was trying to find a tote that wasn't as big and bulky as the Vera, but I could still use it for school. I'm not a fan of backpacks, so when I stumbled across this bag I was overjoyed! It was the right size that I was looking for so that it fits in my locker and I can still fit all of my stuff in it. I can also fit my large cosmetic case in here, which is saying a lot considering that I have to carry 2 binders and a bunch of journals to school, but I still have room left over! Also, this bag takes the place of my Laptop Backpack that I had been using, but this one is much smaller, so it is more portable. If anyone is looking for a good bag to use for school, or a good bag to use to carry their laptop, this laptop tote is a great choice!

Finally, a perfect laptop tote!!
I purchased at least four laptop totes from office supply stores, as well as VB. None seemed to be large enough to hold everything, and light enough to not strain my back. This one is perfect! It holds my 15" HP, cords & plugs, files, a thick day-timer, and a bottle of water. My two cellphones, an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S, fit nicely into the slip pocket. The zippered pocket is great for holding pens and flash drives. I place my small hipster on top of everything, and I'm out the door with one tote on my shoulder that is not overly heavy or clumsy. I love it!!
