Perfect for everyday
This is the perfect wallet for me. I phone 5s in its defender case fits in the larger back zip pocket perfectly. The smaller zip pocket is great as a coin holder. Two different sets of card holders, 6 that you can slip cards in sideways and 6 that you can use in the more conventional way sliding from bottom first are great for organizing gift and reward cards from insurance and credit cards. A full 3/8 th inch of the card is still visible when securely tucked into the slots making it super easy to see which card to choose and easily pull out. Three additional slip pockets that run the entire length of the wallet are great for bills, notes or coupons. This being said, I don't carry a checkbook, so I don't know how that would work for this wallet. If you need quick access to your phone, a wristlet might work better since there is the additional step of having to unzip the compartment it's in. But I love the security of it fully closed. Also when the phone is in the wallet, I need to take more care to make sure the magnetic closure seats properly and you hear the click as the two pieces line up. Just pushing the flap down does not insure that the pieces will find each other and link up. But have had no problems with closure staying shut with or without strap. I love, love, love this wallet. It is perfect for me.

I love this wallet!! It fits everything and more. I'm so very sad to hear that it's getting discontinued. I can never find wallets that I love. I own this wallet in four colors and I'm thinking of getting more due to it being discontinued. I do wish it came in the now spring colors. Oh well.

I bought this wallet in Plum Crazy last summer and love it. It has a lot of pockets. There is a zipper pocket on the back that fits my phone in perfectly. It is great that is a cross body. Great wallet for going out or shopping. I love that it is hands free. It is a very cute wallet to go out in the summer. It is very light weight. I just bought another wallet in Va Va Bloom for my daughter. I am so sad that this wallet is going to be discontinued. I am going to buy another one for my self.

I love this wallet!
I have this wallet in sun valley and fell in love! The fact that it's a bigger wallet but can also be worn as a crossbody bag is so perfect! I never had a problem with the magnetic closer coming open and I pack the wallet pretty full.
Although I just ordered this wallet in va va bloom to match the new diaper bag I bought and was very disappointed to find that the magnetic closer on this one is not as strong, comes open all the time. I'm sure it's just random weather the closer is a good one or not but it was very disappointing.

I am a huge Vera Bradley Fan! My first purchase was of the all in one wristlet wallet my freshman year of college that lasted me 3 years! Since then I upgraded to the Smartphone wristlet, which was of basically the same style, just with a bigger phone compartment. While I've always liked those styles of wallets for school since it was easy to carry everything, including my phone, around campus, I've seen found I wanted something more "adult' that would hold my growing amounts of cards, checkbooks, change, keys, etc. Well, this fit wallet fits the bill to a tee! I can carry all my cards, with still empty slots, cash, change, keys, checkbooks, chapstick, receipts, EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED! Plus, I can wear it as a cross body! My magnetic closure appears to be very tight so I'm not worried about it coming undone, and it sits very nicely when worn as a crossbody on my hip. I'm never concerned about any of my things fallen out because it is so well designed. GET IT! As a busy college student that is always on the run, its perfect for just throwing in a bag or taking on its own!

Best wallet ever
I own this in Very Berry Paisley. Love that it can be used with or without the strap. It holds everything that I need & love that the iphone 4 fits perfectly. Just ordered in Black for the Fall/Winter months.

I love everything about this wallet. There is plenty of room for all my credit and ID cards. Lots of space for receipts and a coin pocket as well. My cell phone even fist inside. When that's all I need, I can throw it across my body and go. I even buckle my seat belt right over it and never have to worry about leaving it in the car. It's always attached to me. The only thing I wish was that it would zip closed around the edges. I fear that one day my credit cards might slip out. I don't know if that's possible or not, but I would have to that to happen. So for it hasn't been a problem, so I say GET IT! YOU'LL LOVE IT! ! !

fits the Galaxy Note 2
My mom bought this for me, but I don't do cross-body purses so I bundledup the strap and stuck a portion of it into the interior slip pocket and turned it into a wristlet. My Galaxy Note II phone in a Speck Candyshell case fits perfectly (just barely though) into the outer zip pocket on the back of it.

So Much Room in a Small Package
This wallet is great. I purchased it in the Plum Crazy pattern, which is my new favorite. I wanted a wallet that would hold everything I needed plus my phone and knew a wristlet wouldn't do the trick. I fit a checkbook and register, my pen, all the important cards needed that any girl would need. I love how my iphone 4 fits so nicely in the zippered compartment. I constantly change my cell phone cases and haven't found one that doesn't fit. This is a great wallet and would be a great addition for anyone VB bag. I don't use the strap but if I needed to it is great and small and out of the way. The snap is very secure and I haven't had any issues with it coming open no matter how much I stuff in my wallet.

I received this wallet for Christmas and was very excited to see how big it actually was. I love that you can use this wallet without having to fold bills (this is one of my biggest peeves about vera's wallets), and it has plenty of different card holders, bill holders, etc. This wallet features a zip pocket on the outside that fits my Galaxy S2 perfectly in-even with the case. Overall, I really do love this wallet, but one reason that I gave it a four was because of the strap. I get that the purpose of this wallet is the long strap, but it's uncomfortable to use, and I feel like if I was going to the mall or something, it would be very easy to loose because the strap really isn't a secure way to hold it. I always just wrapped the strap around my wrist, but that was always uncomfortable, and after awhile I got frustrated with it and decided to get a new wallet. If you can cope with the VERY long strap, than this really is a great purchase. (The straps do come off!)
