This holds so much more than what many of the reviews say! I have my iPad with apple smartcase in the pocket designed for the tablet, in the pocket on the other side I have my phone and keys, and in the middle zipped up section, I have my Vera accordian wallet, small cosmetic, and sunglasses. I love it!! Great protection for the ipad, functional enough for everyday purse use, and easy to carry as a crossbody style.

Great multi-functional crossbody!
We went to Disney World and I found that the VB bag I had taken to use was too small for everything I decided I needed to carry. I bought a Tablet Hipster at one of their gift stores and it was PERFECT!!! I put my camera in the easy to access front flap pocket and my iPhone in the back slip pocket. My iPhone was easy to get to also, yet safe because it was carried against my body. Inside I was able to carry my wallet, lipgloss, kleenex, water bottle, and 2 ponchos (because it rained everyday, at some time). I also had emergency meds in the inside zip pocket, plus my Disney card and other things in the remaining slip pockets, i.e. hair pic, nail file, pen, bandaids.....IT WAS WONDERFUL! It wasn't heavy, I was hands free, and had everything we ever needed.

New favorite bag!
I have a huge collection of Vera bags and this is my new favorite. Although my iPad fits well, I bought this bag to use without it. The size is great and it fits against my body perfectly (due to the placement of the straps onto the bag). Great design, please keep it around for a long time! So much more user friendly than the Hipster.

Amazing tablet bag - just the right size!
I love this bag and it is probably my favorite among all the Vera Bradley
purses and tote bags I have purchased. So easy to organize and holds everything I want to carry which includes my Kindle Fire. It holds by wallet, glasses, cosmetic purse and a small purse which contains my ear buds, stylus and cloth for my glasses and Kindle. In the back pocket I have my cell and leather note card holder. I have it in the Portobello Road and will buy the "Carried Away Tote" to match for my vacation this summer.

Wonderful for travel!
I purchased this purse in plum crazy for a recent trip to Hawaii. I knew I would want to carry my iPad along with everything else.
I was able to comfortably fit my iPad, in its massive case, a wallet, sunglasses and still had room to fit in a small water bottle.
I would recommend this to anyone needing a nice size that also doubles as a cross body purse. I took everything into the store and they let me sit there and test fit everything.
So happy I purchased this bag! Plus it was like a little gang of us on the trip with all our Vera bags.

Great for college!
I love this bag! I bought it in Tutti Frutti about a month ago for college. To each class, I take my iPad, a textbook, and a small folder. I used to carry the messenger bag, but it was too big for the little bit of stuff I took with me. So I got this bag. Everything fits inside. I love how I can use it as a crossbody or carry it over one shoulder. It is easy to get my iPad in and out and I love the inside pockets that hold all my stuff, like pens, pencils, student ID, etc. I'm planning to get another one to use for church!

I purchased this in the Tutti Fruitti Last weekend and I did a review on my blog on youtube about it. I didn't Love the bag. It was very bulky when I put my tablet in it and I was also concerned that it had a magnetic closure verses a zipper for where the tablet sits. Its a nice crossbody bag as far as the style is concerned but I just wish it had a zipper pocket for the tablet.
I really do love the color though

I am rating this a 5 and my favorite Vera Bradley bag due to its practicality. I bought the tablet folio (which isnt necessary and I wouldnt recommend) but if you will be buying, it makes the ipad about 1/2inch thick and bulky and it still fits in the outer pocket. The magnetic strip keeps it safe there and easy to access. The second zipper has inside pockets for id/credit cards and enough space for makeup, cel, paper, pens, femenine products and travel size items or you could place the ipad inside and use the outer pocket for the cel and maybe a your keys and makeup. I own a Coach tablet crossbody which I will be repkacing as it only has the one zipper for the ipad and not much room or expansion. I love it because it allows me to be a mom of 3 without the hassle of a deep bag.

Perfect Size, Perfect Cross-Body Bag
I have the tablet hipster in Plum Crazy and it is my lifesaver!! :) It's the PERFECT size for all of my necessities. I can fit two to three books or journals, all of my regular purse items such as my VB coin purse with the following inside: lipgloss (one small tube, one taller one), Chapstick, bobby pins, hair ties, feminine products, and some of my jewelry such as small bracelets and rings. Even though it may seem like my coin purse has a lot in it, it doesn't make the bag look weird which is an issue that I've had with other bags. I can also fit my mini hairbrush, iPhone 4S with the case on, my iPad with the case, gum, mints, and other small items in the back pocket (the back pocket has a magnetic closure). Even with all of this inside, the bag does not look bulky or like its full of items. The only problem I have with the purse is that if I put heavier items in the bag it makes my shoulder hurt. Even with that teeny tiny issue, it still looks beautiful and is the perfect cross body bag!! (; I LOVE THIS PURSE!!

Love Love Love this!!
I bought this bag to take to a conference. It was PERFECT! I was able to use the center section as a purse (just the essentials) and the outside pocket fit my iPhone nicely and the flap section for my iPad. Now I just use it as a small brief case to carry my iPad and charger, etc.
