Cute, and zip pocket holds my large smartphone
I don't always like to carry a regular purse when running errands or eating out, but most of the wristlets and wallets aren't big enough to hold my larger smartphone. I bought the Wristlet today and was so pleased that my phone fits inside the inner zip pocket so it won't get scratched. The Wristlet has four card slots in the main compartment, but my zip ID with more cards and cash fits, along with my keyring and lip gloss. It's not as compact as some wristlets, but so worth it to hold my phone and a few essentials. It's very cute in Indigo Pop with the small design trim on both sides, and the strap with a clip on one end. The gusset lets it expand to hold a little more. It's still small enough to be used inside a large purse or tote to hold cosmetics or whatever, but I'll carry it on its own.
My all-time favorite wristlet has been the All-in-One, but the phone pocket isn't large enough to hold many smartphones. Until it's tweaked, the Wristlet will be its substitute, and also has space for my keys inside. Nice alternative to my tiny crossbody purses.

So many things to like about this wristlet
There are so many things to like about this wristlet. The size is great. The fact that it has a gusset-like bottom, that allows you to "stuff" it fuller than a flat wristlet. The interior zipper compartment is where I stash my cash. The interior is then able to easily accommodate my phone, my keys, some small reading glasses, mints, a lipstick or two, eyeliner, a small comb -- everything I need.
If I've filled it too full for some reason, I can clip my key ring to the wristlet strap clip.
I love that I can make it into a little purse rather than a wristlet, if I'm tired of carrying it like a wristlet. I throw this wristlet into my convertible crossbody, and when I want to go into a store, I can leave my big purse in the car and just take my wristlet and have everything I need. Perfect!
The only way they could make this better for me would be to put a zippered compartment on the outside and make the card slots inside a little stiffer so it's easier to insert a credit card. But the lack of those suggestions being incorporated would not deter me from highly recommending it to you.
I've purchased three or four wristlets from Vera, and this is my favorite by far. The zip-zip wristlet, not so much, too flat. The zip around wallet has a wrist strap I don't like, although it does have an outside pocket. I also have the pushlock wristlet, which is taller and wider, but with no gusseted bottom, and looks like it will work well (haven't used it yet), although I've read complaints about the longevity of the pushlock.

I switched from the Carry-It-All wristlet to this wristlet when I received it as a gift. When I had the Carry-It-All I had a basic phone that fit in it snugly without a case on it. Now that I have an iPhone 5s, I have found that I am unable to use my Carry-It-All because the strap on the outside pocket does not fit over my phone. I was bummed, but I was in love as soon as I saw this wristlet. My iPhone fits in with room to spare. I love how many card slots there are and I like the fact that I can just grab this and have my money, my cards, and my phone with me when I'm running an errand. I also like it because it is added protection for my phone. I have dropped my wristlet with my phone inside and nothing has happened to my phone despite being dropped on concrete/asphalt numerous times (I'm quite the klutz). I definitely love this design and I actually purchased it for a few of my friends because they liked it as well. Overall, it's a well constructed piece that holds everything I need to run an errand.

Galaxy Note III Perfect
As a teacher I do not want to carry a purse in addition to my school bag. This is perfect for the never to be without cards, petty cash, and yes my phone. When I upgraded to the note III, I had not idea how hard it would be to find a carrying case. I spent hours shopping for something anything before I discover this wrislet. This is the bomb! I love it. I have my school keys and ID on a coordinating lanyard.

I actually use this as my wallet. I like it because I can just grab it out of my bag and it's big enough to also hold my phone. My change is in the zipper pocket with my ID and other cards in the card slots. The one thing that would make this wristlet perfect for me would be a slim divider to hold my money/ bills. That would keep my money seperated from my phone and other things. The Zip Zip Wallet is similar to what I'm talking about but it is stiff. I like that the wristlet is soft and flexible. Mine is in Citron.

I have two of these wristlets and love their compact design. The inside has 4 credit card slots on one side and a zipper pocket on the other. The outside has no pockets, but the strap is designed to be used as a wristlet or it detaches from the one side by a large lobster claw clasp that hooks onto the other side of the bag to make it into a handle that can be carried like a regular bag. I also own the push lock wristlet which is slightly bigger than this regular wristlet, plus it has the extra push lock pocket in the front. Both have their uses, but if I had to choose one over the other, I would choose the push lock wallet just because it is slightly larger and has the extra pocket.

This is a nice little purse to grab and run out the door with. It holds a ton of things including glasses, cash, cards, keys, and change. I would definitely recommend this if you want an easy to grab and cute purse.

For years I have been carrying the old style wristlet with just the little slip pocket and finally decided to check out the new design. I don't know why i waited so long I love it so much! I got it in the pattern Lilli Bell to go inside my magenta tote and it matches without being too "matchy-matchy". The zippered pocket on the inside was enough already but when i received it and saw the card slots also i was overjoyed. This is a wonderful alternative to a standard wallet and you can even carry your phone, chapstick, or even your keys all in one place. Definitely will be repurchasing!!

Holds everything you need for a night out - cards, cash, phone, small pill case. It's definitely a full-sized wallet, but not too big.
