Love this backpack
This is my first backpack from VB. I bought it to use for traveling. I needed something that I could carry my IPad, my VB wallet, and a few carry on items. This backpack is the right size. It's not to big. The sales lady at VB recommended the mail bag purse. I felt that was just to big and bulky for what I was looking for. This backpack has a zipper area on the back that your iPad can fit into. Although it also can fit in the front pocket with a flap closure. I don't feel that is as secure. It also has two slip pockets under flap. Behind the flap pocket is a large slip pocket. The main zip area has a small zip pocket in the inside that is great for a cell phone, keys, or small items. I can't wait to use it on my next trip. I bought it in the color pink swirls.

The Ultimate Backpack for a girl on the go!
I've had the smaller version of this backpack but it didn't hold enough for me to use often. This version is perfect! I can hold a book, my planner, a journal and my turn lock wallet... and thats only in the large compartment! My kindle fire fits in the large pocket in the front. The pockets are roomy and can hold random things, like compact mirrors and make up. Over all this bag is amazing and I'm so happy I got it.

cute, but not quite ultimate
I just got this backpack today. While it is roomier on the base of the bag, it tapers up pretty slender at the top. This makes the side pockets to small to carry a water bottle in.I don't know why the designers at Vera Bradley didn't take this into consideration. The old backpack will fit a regular size water bottle, and the style before that didn't. 'It would be perfect if I could carry my water bottle on the outside instead of on the inside of my bag (makes sense). I think many reviewers will feel the same way. Otherwise, it has lots of pockets on the outside and a zipper pocket inside. Maybe by the next backpack revision they will get it right.
