Newly free from the corporate world, I was looking for a lighter weight bag than my Vintage Leather Classic which weighs a TON full. After looking online (liking the Happy Snails ALOT) I had to check out in person. Spent 85 minutes at retailer then walked out with the mailbag and wallet in Provencal (Not the color I wanted but the sale and bag made me do it.) It holds my I pad, notebook, wallets, tape measures, make-up, keys for starters and weighs less than my other bad empty! I adjust shoulder to cross-body at whim. I keep playing with the pockets and compartments as I've never had so many spacious choices. I use it and like it so much I've bought three Vera bags in two weeks since as gifts and have not put this one down. I love it.

I really wanted to love this bag, and it seemed perfect. I needed something to carry my iPad along with my other usual purse items, as well as a cross body style. I thought I had found it in this bag, but I find it to be just eh. It does hold everything, but it gets way too heavy to wear crossbody. The design of the strap makes it twist and dig into my shoulder. Also, the pockets on the inside zipper part are on the front side, not the side closest to your body. I find this to be a bit awkward and when my iPad is in the big slip pocket, it tends to make the interior pockets bulge. I am going to get the campus tote, I think that will work better for my needs and I will just abandon the cross body idea for now.

The BEST bag I've ever had, after much searching!
Finally, this is the best purse I've ever had! I tend to carry alot in my purse, including a journal or book, my phone, wristlet, personal items, gum, hand cream and sanitizer, and more, including stuff I might randomly throw in. The Mailbag hold all of it with room to spare, and it isn't bulky, it keeps a nice slim profile; I can keep it on my shoulder (or keep it crossbody) wherever I go and don't feel like I have to take it off.

I have several Mailbag purses. I carry a lot of things, and there is a place for every bit of it inside the Mailbag. I hope Vera never stops making this style of bag. I'd be crushed! Love, love, love!

Love, love, love this bag!
Perfect to tote around my google chromebook! (Would work well for an iPad too if you were so inclined.) I wanted something with enough space to carry the chromebook, power cord, wallet, keys, but sleek enough I would really use it all the time to keep my chromebook at arm's reach for work and play. I tried several bags before landing on the mailbag. I carry it every day and love it!

My favorite Vera!!!!
I truly love this bag. I have about 5 different styles of Vera Bradley purses and this is by far my favorite. It holds so much and still looks really small. This may even be the first time I buy the same purse in a different color because I like it that much! Im also buying one for my best friend.

I've been carrying the Three-O-Tote and the Angle Tote for the last couple of years, and I was really hesitant to switch to the mailbag because I thought it would be too small. However, I knew I wanted a hands-free (crossbody) bag, and after researching them, I knew this was a good choice. I purchased the Mailbag in Sun Valley a couple of weeks ago, and I have to say that I LOVE this bag. It fits everything I need, with space to spare. It really is bigger than it looks. I love the crossbody design - it is very comfortable to carry. I hope to get more Mailbags in different patterns in the future!

First saw the mailbag when I saw my sister's. Liked the pockets and the fact that my Kindle would fit so nicely in the slip pocket so bought one for myself. I have really enjoyed it, and have had many compliments on it. Now I am ordering one in a summer color!

Perfect for the new Surface!
I just recieved my bag in Priscilla Pink and my Surface fits perfectly in the main pocket under the Flap and my Kindle Fire fits in the pocket in front of that. I still have lots of room in the main part of the bag for my big day planner, the small cosmetic bag with all my pens and markers in it and more. The back zipper pocket is perfect for money, my iPhone and keys. I LOVE THIS BAG!!!!
