On the Go
I have two On The Go bags that I bought two years ago. I absolutely love them. This new model is a major disappointment. The old strap was wider and not so long. When it was adjusted for shoulder strap length it was mostly single. It stays perfectly on my shoulder. This new one is stiff and ugly and won't stay in place. What's the point in changing something for the worse? The opening is also smaller so it's harder to get things in and out.

CHANGE THE STRAP PLEASE!!!
Love the "On the Go" bag, and I wanted to order the all-black one, but I won't as long as the strap is so stiff! Please change to a softer strap. Straps on other cotton bags in this style are sooooo nice!!!! I see others agree with me - won't you please change the too-stiff straps. Thanx!

Best to go with ON THE GO
I LOVE THIS PURSE...I just purchased it and can't find one thing wrong with it. It is a perfect bag. I can fit so much in it, love the clean, classy look, it can be worn for everyday or a more elegant affair. Easy to keep things organized, love the side pockets and the outside zipper compartment. All in all its a great purse. The straps are adjustable which makes the bag even more versital. And I know purses I have many!!! I recommend it 100%.

Love this bag!
I just got this bag to replace a patterned On the Go bag. I was very hesitant with some of the reviews. The strap is a little stiffer, but it does not stand straight up. I tried to get it to stand straight up and couldn't do it. My biggest worry with this bag was that I always put my iPhone 4S in the side pocket and it wouldn't fit easily... I just put an old Otterbox in the pocket with an Angry Bird brick from kids' toys and it stretched the pocket perfectly without showing any wear. The bag does not seem smaller than the patterned ones, I personally think it feels bigger. And I'm sure the bag will only get better as it stretches out and breaks in. It looks very classy.

Great bag, bad strap
Love the On the Go, it is a great bag! I was so happy when Vera came out with the solid black and ordered one. I did keep the bag but I really do not like the strap, it is EXTREMELY STIFF and nothing like the straps on the bags.

strap heavy and stiff
I was so excited to learn the On the Go has a longer strap and comes in black. But the strap is the same as the black hipster and makes the bag feel heavier. I buy Vera bags because they are lightweight! The tops of the outside pockets also have the weird stiffness, so they stick out and it's hard to get things out of them. All the pockets on the bag are great, but the outside ones should lay flat when not in use.
I love the soft webbed strap on the Pushlock Crossbody so much. I just wish it were on the new line of black bags.

Have probably 20 other On The Go purses and love them!! This black microfiber bag seems smaller without bottom piece and strap is so stiff it stands up straight- returned it immediately

I own 14 different colors of the on the go bag. I am very disappointed in the new design and especially the Vera Vera. The bottom of the bag is missing the flat bottom and so it makes it seem smaller. The extra zipper is nice and the strap doesn't bother me. Also do not like the new hardware. The bag went back immediately after I saw it. The quality also in not as good.

BLACK ON THE GO
I have been waiting so long for a solid color for my favorite the On The Go purse. I bought it yesterday and love it.
I like the two zippers and the updated side pockets. Everything fits I can't imagine ever getting tired of this one.

Been waiting for this a long time!
I have purchased at least 20 On the Go bags in the classic cotton patterns over the years because they are my favorite and seem to fit everything I want to carry so well! I usually shop in a store, but in looking for a specific pattern found myself at verabradley.com. I used the search bar and entered On the Go and was so happy to see a microfiber! I have been hoping you would make On the Go in microfiber or denim or something else for variety for years! My new bag came today and it is perfect! I love it! I see you are sold out online so I am glad I ordered when I did! Make some more!
