Pick up and go
I've had this wristlet for several months and have had no problem with the lock. The size is perfect for grabbing when I take my daughter driving or pick her up from school, and I keep all my cards and license in the front pocket, phone, mp3 player and earbuds, cash, receipts, etc. in the main zip pocket. Add lipstick and so on, and there's still a lot of usable room - the wristlet stays slim and pretty even full.
Please keep this style - I'll definitely be adding new colors to my collection.

great concept, horrible quality
This is the first Vera product that I've owned that I have really been disappointed in. I LOVE the concept! I fits my iPhone 5 and everything for my wallet great. However, I only used it for 2 days and the push lock broke off. I was holding it and pieces of the push lock literally fell off in my lap. I purchased it because I needed something to quickly grab and be able to carry by itself or throw it in my purse or kids diaper bag. This fit the bill perfectly. Really wish there was an easy way to get it replaced with the same item that wasn't defective.

I Wanted to Love it but...
I bought this wristlet for a recent trip to Brazil. I wanted a wristlet that was big enough to carry an iPhone 5 as well as a passport, and smaller essential items. This wristlet accommodated those desires, but the hardware, specifically the push lock, was a bit flimsy. I was afraid to leave my phone or money in the outside pocket because the push lock didn't feel secure. It popped open easily. I also didn't feel secure carrying it as a wristlet because of this reason. I bought the jazzy blooms, which is a gorgeous, bright cheerful floral. However, the quality of this push lock could be much better for the price I paid. It is the first Vera item that I haven't been 100% satisfied with.

I have this wristlet in Ribbons and I absolutely LOVE it! It is the perfect size and everything fits nicely. I bought this with the euro wallet and in the beginning I used them together. Although it fit, I couldn't hold anything but a lip balm and the wallet in the main compartment. I then bought the campus double id and that, my car keys, lip balm, and much more fit! The front pocket fits my iPhone 4s with a case perfectly, and contrary to other reviews, the pushlock is fine for me, and I have used it regularly for 4 months. I size is perfect for a wristlet or a clutch.

Gorgeous and Functional!
I bought this wristlet in Canterberry Cobalt and its absolutely gorgeous! The pattern seems more wintery but on the push lock wristlet it matches with everything. Im used to having a specific spot for change but i just throw it in the zip pocket along with my cash and other items. I feared the push lock breaking after reading the reviews but I've had it for 2 weeks and its brand new. I can see how it can become a problem if constantly overstuffed but mine is fine. Inside mine i have my cash, coupons, and IDs in the zip pocket. My cash, receipts, iPhone charger, nail file, gum, and 3 chap/lipsticks in the main compartment. My most used cards in the card slots, and my phone in the push lock ALL with no bulge! I love it!! My only issue is the card slots closer to the zipper when opened (on the right if push lock facing you) are a bit difficult to get to. But no worries, i put my least used on that side such as my store cards. Overall, its amazing and i will be getting major use out of this! I never buy the same item twice but this may be the one! Canterberry Magenta is coming soon!!

Wish is was better made
I want to love this wallet. It will hold everything and is a great wallet except for the lock. I had to replace the first one within a week because the button kept falling out. I'm on the second one and the button fell out and got lost. I want to love it but end up frustrated most of the time. I hope Vera Bradley can fix this because it's frustrating to spend this much on a wallet and have pieces constantly falling off.

Did not work out
First time I went to use this, the pin holding the push lock had fallen out. I had opened and closed it maybe two to three times. Vera Bradley has great customer service and handled my return quickly. Loved the ribbons pattern.

Very disappointing, two seperate bags fell apart
I initially loved this bag but within the first month of owning it, the part that hold the wrist strap on broke off. I contacted Vera and they immediately sent out a replacement. Only a couple weeks after using the replacement the pin that holds the pushlock in loosened and the actual metal locking piece fell out and became lost. I typically love all things Vera and will continue to purchase and use their bags but this particular one is poorly made. After having two break from light everyday use, I would not recommend purchasing this bag and I hope Vera will fix this issues associated with this wristlet.

This wristlet is perfect for those who need/want to carry all their "stuff" with them in a small purse. Since I teach in many different classrooms throughout the day, I like the wristlets as a wallet/purse to just toss in my work bag to take with all my teaching stuff. This wristlet holds a tampon/pad, money, cards, my coupons (have to have them with me at all times!) in their own little envelope, lip balm and gloss, hair ties, keys, phone, reading glasses, and a little tin of the VB mints. During the summer, I was tossing the wristlet in the small mesh bag, since the wristlet won't hold a book (lol). Very versatile, easy to carry. I have not had any issues with the push lock at all. Makes me feel secure that I can have all my personal stuff with me wherever I am without feeling like I have to then stint on what I carry class to class.

I got this as part of a contest I won, and I love it. It's perfect for walking around the mall, etc. when you don't want to carry a big bag. It also fits inside other bags as a great wallet. I love being able to store my iPod and phone in the outer pocket and put everything else I need inside!
