Holds a lot!
I received this cross body for Easter in my favourite pattern- Island Blooms. I took it to school the next day and immediately fell in love with it. I can fit my phone, iPad, wallet, 3 paperbacks, fold up umbrella, several pencils and pens, 3 lip balms, a pad of sticky notes, my key, hand cream, notebook, agenda, binders, and much more. It has so much room and several pockets, and now I have some friends going online to order some for themselves!
If you feel skeptical about getting this for school, have no worries. It is bigger than it looks and has a total of 7 pockets. I'd absolutely recommend this for everyone looking for a new school bag! It's everything you need in one. Once again, thank you Vera Bradley!

One of my absolute favorite Vera items!
I own two Messengers, one in Indigo Pop and another in Plum Crazy, because I love this bag so much. I'm a graduate student and also a commuter, so having a compact bag that holds everything is essential. On an average day I can fit my MacBook Pro in a Vera sleeve, two or three critical editions of books (about 400 pages each,) my Vera agenda, a couple bottles of water, and a notebook, along with pens, highlighters, and post it notes. The two front zip pockets are great for storing snacks or cosmetics, while I keep my keys, wristlet, and phone in the back pocket. Please don't ever retire this bag!

I just bought this messenger in ribbons and I love it. It is so cute and it's bigger than I thought. The main compartment is huge and the back zipper is great for my agenda. I would DEFINITELY recommend this to people and the color ribbons is absolutley adorable!

Style Meets Service
I purchased the Messenger in the Ribbons pattern to carry my laptop, files, etc. I like the style, size, storage and security of this product. It's almost perfect.......I only wish that it had the nifty handle which was on its predecessor. I would have liked the option of carrying it both ways (consequently 4 stars). At any rate, I'm very pleased with my Messenger.

Totally worth it
I bought this bag for school and its perfect! I can fit my laptop binder and notebook in the main compartment just fine. The back pocket is huge and holds my wallet and phone for easy access. The little pockets in the front hold lotion and hand sanitizer and they are easily accessible as well because the pockets are angled. Its a great bag with alot of space.

Awesome for iPad using schools!
When my school switched from textbooks to iPads I got this in Priscilla Pink and I love it. It fits two binders, my iPad, planner, Bluetooth keyboard, and other little things easily! I'm in middle school and this was my first Vera Bradley purchase and it is fabulous!

This bag is great for school!!! I can fit several comp. books, 4 folders, a Nook, and a folded lunch bag in it! I begged and begged for my mom to buy it for me. I got it in Paisley Meets Plaid--along with a lunch date, lanyard, and campus tote(in the same pattern, mind you). I will admit I am a paisley meets plaid and VB addict!!!!!!

Great for work
I am a physician and bought this as my ' work bag' in Suzana ( demure enough to be taken to the hospital ).
Big enough for a few books, papers, stethoscope, lunch etc.
Am happy with it so far !
