Very functional but could be improved
I bought this wristlet about 15 months ago and have used it every day since. I use it as a wallet. When I'm just running into the store, I just grab it out of my purse and I have everything I need. I love that it's big enough to fix a bunch of stuff in there. I have all my credit cards and IDs (about 15) plus about 15-20 loyalty or gift cards, plus a stack of business cards, a stack of bank deposit slips, a pen, antibacterial lotion.
What I don't like is that the push lock broke in about a month of use and it wasn't even that secure in the first place. I also don't love that the credit card pockets are on the back side of the wristlet - I found it annoying because I was always flipping it around. I also don't love that it's difficult to use the top right credit card pocket because the zipper gets in the way. One modification that I would love would be a divider in the main compartment for some organization.
Despite what I don't like about this wristlet, there's enough that I love that I'm buying another one. I am expecting my first child in October and I won't have to carry a purse if I have this to throw in the diaper bag!

Love the Pushlock Wristlet
But......wish it had a cross body strap. I currently use the All in One Crossbody for my wallet and use the cross body strap when I'm shopping. But I wanted something a little bigger. When I got the Pushlock Wristlet I fell in love but still want the option of having a cross body strap. Please add a D-ring to the other side of the bag and add a cross body strap option! Otherwise....love it!

Awesome Everything Purse
This holds my large smartphone in the outside pocket, and everything I need inside: cards, cash and a few cosmetics. Awesome piece!

I love this wristlet! With four kids, this Vera is a must!! I can slip it into a larger bag for a trip to the pool or movies. The outer pocket fits my iPhone 5 securely and has quick, easy access. Love the credit card slots in the main zip pocket too. I agree with the other reviewers that a cross-body strap would make it 5 stars. Please don't take this gem away!!

I love this pushlock wristlet. I was hoping they'd improve on the original wristlet and add the phone pocket, and here it is. Large enough for everything I need for shopping, and not too big to be clunky on my wrist. As a preemptive measure, I've sewn on a little eye hook on the pushlock part, since that seems to be a point of weakness for folks. Will be purchasing another soon.

The pushlock mechanism fell apart after only 2 weeks of use.
I love the size (larger than the wristlet that's being contiuned), such that it's more like a traditional clutch. I love that there's an extra front pouch (hence the pushlock) for my cell (iPhone5 in a Vera case).

Love! Wish this was a cross body!
I LOVE this wallet. It holds my credit cards, keys (w/fob), a lipstick and IT FITS MY GALAXY NOTE 3 (w/ a protective case and has a little room to spare)!!! (I keep my keys in the front pushlock section and my lipstick and phone in the main interior section with my credit cards - so the keys don't scratch up the phone) My only wish to make this wallet better is if it was a cross body and not just a wristlet (why I gave it 4/5 stars). Otherwise, it's perfect!

SO disappointed in this....
Wanted to love this - a big wristlet was what I wanted in the worst way. But I used it for the first time today and the strap fell off!!! Worse, I backtracked through the stores I was in and can't find it anywhere. It was only attached through a little loop on the side - why wouldn't it be sewed into the seam? UGH!!!! Don't waste your money.....

So far so good. I put everything I needed inside and I love it. I just received it today. Hopefully I won't have any problems like I have read bc I really like it and it's handy u can just grab it and run in a store real quick. Great size.

A Real Estate Agent's Best Friend!
I am a real estate agent, so I already have my hands full most of the time. I was looking for something that I can toss my iPhone (dressed in an Otterbox) into, as well as my eKey, some cash, cards, receipts, pen & an embarrassingly large set of keys. I figured this would be a tall order for a mere wristlet to handle... Until this Pushlock Wristlet arrived! I am overjoyed. An admitted Vera Bradley addict, this was the first VB purchase that I got super-giddy over! I've used it with no complications, no malfunctions, and no breakage. I receive compliments on it all the time. It even fits well in my Tablet Hipster, and transforms as my wallet in my Eloise handbags!
