3 0 tote
Bring back the Villager, the 3 0 tote is just too big and the pockets are not large enough inside, and there are no side (on the end) pockets!! Keep the puse with a zipper though!!!

I usually get a new bag every year and have always been happy with my purchase until now. Wish they would stop changing the styles. You find one or two that are perfect then they're gone. The size of the bag is ok but the pockets on the inside are not so great. They are too low in the purse. They are also a little deep and tight. If they weren't so tight the depth would be ok. Would prefer the nice 6 pockets on the inside. I' m not happy with the choices this year.

I bought the bag because it was just a little smaller than the Vera and had a decent amount of pockets. When I brought it home I tested it out by filling it up with my daily items that I carry. That's when I discovered that the pockets on the outside and inside back up to each other too much. When you fill one, it takes away from the other and makes it not very useful. I do carry a water bottle everyday, as well as a diaper or two and wipes for my two year old, and it just seemed like the bag wasn't quite big enough for everything else. I'd say go with the Vera even if it is on the bigger side. The Three 0 Tote just didn't do it for me.

Really Surprised with this one
I have bought ALOT of Vera Bradley bags. Everyone at work jokes me about how many bags I have. The Betsy (discontinued), Squared Away (also discontinued) On the Go, Glenna and Laura styles I have in more than one color. I thought each one was my favorite until I got a new style. This Three O is the latest one and I love It. I really think this one excites me the most, yeah it doesn't have all the inside pockets like the Laura and Glenna but it has 2 great outside pockets for quick grab items and is tall enough for all my junk and actually zip it (Glenna is not tall enough for the zipper to work and the Laura has a magnet.
So many people have different needs in a bag. I've never really had one that was terrible. Some, I didn't like as much a year or so of using it (that's why I have so many# but I think the ones discontinued that I have used, I find I don't go back to #and don't want to get rid of them) and enjoy the features of the new ones.
Keep them coming.

Usually carry the Mandy for everyday use, but was going on vacation and wanted something a little larger. The Three-0 Tote was perfect - not too large, but it is still roomy enough for extras. Liked it so much I bought another one.

Best work tote
I almost didn't try this tote due to the negative reviews. I'm glad I changed my mind! This is the perfect work tote and feels like a cross between the Villager and the regular toggle tote. I like that it is roomier than the Villager but not as large as the Vera. The interior and exterior pockets fit my needs perfectly, and the zip top keeps everything secure. This bag has really good structure, and I don't have problems with it falling over on its side. I can fit my usual purse items, tablet with keyboard, spiral notebook and folder, and snacks and a drink, with a little room to spare. I have now bought this tote in several colors. I recommend giving it a try!

Finally, something similar to the Villager!
I was so disappointed when the Villager style was discontinued. The Three-O Tote is VERY similar. I love the inner and outer pockets. Great for keeping things organized and accessible.

Ok, but please bring back the Villager!
The Three-O-Tote is an ok bag. I like the outside slip pocket the best because it is really roomy. I wish the inside pockets were larger, and I wish there were at least six like the Villager. I loved the Villager! The Villager was sleek and the perfect mid-sized bag/purse. I loved the Villager's six inside pockets and outer zip pocket and slip pocket. The Villager's top zipper closure and handle length were also fantastic. The Three-O-Tote is an ok bag (you can fit a lot inside), but please bring back the Villager!

Should have just kept the Villager
I wanted another Villager (which I absolutely love) and was shocked to see that it's no longer made. I examined the Three-O Tote and was disappointed to see that it doesn't have near the pockets that the Villager did. The pockets and the zipper are what I loved about the Villager. I will not be buying any more Vera Bradley bags unless they bring back the Villager. It was perfect for me.

Please bring back the villager
My Grandmother loves the Villager. It is the only style she likes to carry because of the room, pockets inside, and straps. After learning that Vera no longer makes the Villager I ended up ordering the Three-O because the measurement were similar. This is always a gift that the Grandkids go in to get her along with the accessories each birthday. I was very disappointed with the bag. It seems bigger and bulkier and does not include as many inside pockets as the Villager. She was very appreciative of the gift, but I could tell she really liked her Villager style better. Upon reading the other posts I think Vera should really consider doing away with the Three -O style and bringing back the Villager.
