Best Tote Ever!
This might very well be the best tote in the history of ever. As with every Vera bag I have ever purchased, there are a number of great features. There are two big side pockets on the outside, large enough to hold a big 32 ounce water bottle. The nice thing about these pockets is that when they are not in use they are flush with the sides of the bag. The shape is beautiful, with some lovely pleating in the center, making it attractive and stylish. The inside has three open pockets on one side and a decent sized zipper pocket on the other. The tote also has a sturdy, reinforced bottom with straps that are long enough to comfortably throw it over your shoulder, even with a heavy winter jacket on. And, there is a secure zipper closure, instead of the usual toggle button, which is another great feature. I'm an 'adult' college student and I can easily throw my text book and notebook in this bag, as well as the usual essentials of wallet, phone, etc. I can even fit my 13" macbook comfortably. I'm also a Mom and this tote is large enough to carry the essentials for an outing with children. I'm truly in love with this tote! A great value for the size and all the awesome features!

Love it - just make the inside pockets deeper!
It's the perfect medium size, zips closed, includes a zipper pocket and 2 side pockets. The curves give it great style. Just make the inside pockets deeper as things tend to fall out. This was noted in a number of the other posts, too. I also like when inside pockets are quilted and have a double row of vertical stitching on each side, just like the "Vera" tote -- makes them very sturdy. The style of inside pockets on the Vera tote should be the standard for every tote.

Great bag for college students
I got this bag to carry everything I need for my college classes, and it works great! I can fit binders, textbooks, notebooks, and folders in it. The pockets on the ends are great for a water bottle. This bag is a great size.
