Magnetic closer does not work
Nice size bag and sits on the shoulder well with good strap drop. The rolled handles and silver hardware look great. Plenty of pockets and space. I really wanted to love this bag. The magnet is not strong enough to even begin to keep this bag closed. When the bag is not closed it causes it to look sloppy when you sit the purse down (naturally so because it is all gapped open). It looks fine while sitting on the shoulder with it not closed. I sewed a large snap on the top of the bag at the exact area the magnet was and this helped. I decided not to keep the bag and gave it to a relative so she could give it a try.

Perfect for school
Love, Love, Love this bag! I got it in Blue Lagoon and it is perfect for a Floridian! It's big enough to fit my school book, notebook, Ipad, wallet, keys, and anything else I can think of to throw in there! The outside zipper comes in super handy too. When thinking of size I would compare it to the Vera, but with more style and shape. Wish I could get it in the new Heather color too!

A big bag!!
I love this bag so much. It has so many pockets. I have this in call me coral. The magnetic closer is actually okay. It has lots of storage.

Love the bag but not the magnet closure
This is my absolute favorite VB bag. It holds everything I normally carry (wallet, keys, large VB makeup bag, misc. papers, Kindle Fire, cell phone and two pairs of glasses/sunglasses). It also holds everything else I manage to collect during the day (mail, magazines, books, etc.). I have yet to fill it completely. Despite this it never feels cumbersome and always fits comfortably over my shoulder and never slips off.
My only problem with the bag is the insufficient magnet that prevents the bag from staying closed. It either needs a larger magnet or another means of closure. This fact, however, would not stop me from purchasing another hobo or recommending it to a friend. I have it in Folkloric and love the pattern and have received many compliments on both the bag and print. I also have the matching wallet and card keeper.

Great space, poor closure!
Love the pattern that I got, love the dividers inside the bag - HATE the magnetic closure!!!!! For a bag this big, VB should know to use a better magnetic closure. When you put all the stuff in, the bag won't close at all - even if you press the closure together. The size of the magnet is about the size of a nickle.

Love the Purse, but it won't stay closed!
I purchased this purse in Folkloric. I love the look and functionality of this purse, but it will not stay closed. I do not have it overly full and it keeps popping open. I would return it if I had paid full price, but I got it on sale so I can live with it. Vera should put these purses to the test before putting them on the market.

I just got this cute Hobo bag in Folkloric the other day and oh it's so cute. I'm a huge fan of big purses and this one is the perfect size. It's not too big or small at all, it's just right. Fits on my shoulder like a charm and the print is adorable.

Favorite of all my Vera bags
This was the first Vera bag I bought and I knew it was worth it was soon as I opened the package. Love the size. I can fit everything I need for the day. It fits my wallet, a mediumish sized cosmetic bag, my tablet, water bottle and can even fit my cardigan or a small pair of flats. Sometimes I even put my can of soup and mug in there too. The rolled handles are glorious and the handle drop lengh is ideal for me. Good sized pockets for everything and it keeps its shape nicely. After carrying it for a few months and deciding it was my favorite bag ever, I went and bought one for my mom, who also loves it.

Great Bag so Far!
I just received this bag yesterday and I can usually tell pretty quick if I am going to like it or not and.......so far I am loving it. Its big enough on the inside to fit everything I use to put in the old Villager bag (which I love also). The only thing I can say a little negative is I wish it had more inside pockets but since it has a large zipper pocket that helps alot. I bought it in Simply Violet and love the print and color.
