Repeatedly cracking straws
We have purchased several of these tumblers. Each one is more disappointing than the last. Even when the cup manages to remain in tact, you can certainly count on the straw breaking. Far too over-priced considering the quality. It is unfortunate that one can be purchased at a dollar store for better quality.

I received my tumbler as a birthday gift from my daughter. I loved it the colors were my favorite and I am a big Vera fan. As soon as I went to use it for the first time I noticed that it was cracked. I took it to the nearest Vera store and they replaced it. Within two days of using my new tumbler it cracked. It was never dropped or handled roughly. I was very disappointed with this product.

Buy for Fashion, not Function. Adorable... but....
I love the pattern, and the matching straw. But the straw cracked quickly, and the lid is hard to take off. The threads never seen to line up right. I wish Vera would contract with Tervis to make this product for them. I would easily pay the extra $10 per cup to get one that would be a far superior quality. I am a seasoned 20 year Vera customer, with products in every category Vera sells. This is the only one that's missing the boat in terms of quality.

I loved the patter inside the cup but after a couple of washes it started leaking into the middle. It ruined the pattern. It was not worth the price.

I was just introduced last summer into the world of VB...was given a purse for Mother's day, and since have bought numerous items that have great quality, until this 'Dollar Store Cup' that was given to me as a gift. I could not believe that on the very first wash, and it was not soaked in water, it leaked and ruined the paper on the inside!! I propped it at an angle for 3 days waiting for the water to drain out, even though it was just a small amount, it ruined the cup! This type of cup can be purchased very inexpensively, so for the price I would expect more....especially from VB!! Maybe better stick to 'cloth' products..LOL....

Cute but fragile
I loved my cute Vera tumbler. I carried it to work every day and it was wonderful since it did not sweat all over my desk. However, it did not take very long for the seal to break and water to leak into the air space between layers. I had only had it for a few months. It had only ever been hand washed and carefully handled. I contacted the company and they had me ship it to them. They were very nice and gave me a credit for their website.

I have had 3 of these cups and all have shattered. They all broke from simply falling off the counter or getting knocked out of my hand. The cup did keep drinks cool for a long period of time. i would not buy this cup especially if you work with children.

Looks nice but do not expect it to last
I purchased this tumbler for my wife as she's a big fan of Vera Bradley bags and wanted a tumbler for work. While it was very attractive, it started to leak within 2 weeks. Despite adhering to Vera Bradley's instructions of "handwash only," water seeped into the walls of the tumbler, causing the patterned paper to crumple.
Giving Vera Bradley the benefit of the doubt, I bought my wife a replacement. Same problem.
This appears to come down to a quality issue as numerous other reviews have mentioned it. It is disappointing that Vera Bradley continues to sell this tumbler despite the fact that it is clearly suffers from design defects.
