All in One Crossbody
Versatile and Convenient
Now that my children are old enough to carry their own necessities, I like to be hands-free most of the time when traveling. Every time we visit Disney World I bring Vera Bradley bags and have in recent years brought smaller and lighter crossbody styles. Even still, with the intense summer heat, I was looking for something even lighter so I purchased an All in One Crossbody for myself and my 12-year old daughter. Although we utilized it differently, it worked out great for both of us when we went to the parks. I could fit my iPhone 4s with outer box in the front flap (it was a tight fit but wasn't a problem); lip balm (thinner style), hair ties, coins and receipts in the two-section compartment; but, my favorite compartment is the money/credit card section! It has a full size bill slot and 6 card slots. I don't like to fold cash. This really is a complete wallet (I carry less cards when traveling) with space for necessities. The All in One Crossbody can easily be placed inside a larger bag or attached to a tote. I initially took the wristlet strap off but then reattached it when I realized that both straps came in handy during our travels. I also appreciate that both straps are removable and was able to attach small bags directly to the strap when shopping leaving me hands-free. I would advise buyers to give the phone compartment and the credit card slots a chance to "break in" as they are very snug at first. A snug fit, in my opinion, is much more secure than a loose fit.

For someone who carries a purse I was looking for something different to downsize. I absolutely found it in this crossbody. In the beginning it has taken some getting used to & as one person put in their review, you can't store your phone with case but this is ok with me. I am looking for less bulky. This is absolutely a fit for me!! Highly recommend!!!

I love this little purse!!!
I love this little purse! I use it as my every day wallet. It fits my iPhone 5c in a lifeproof case plus all my cards, headphones, charger cord, chapstick and a few other small items. I keep the wrist strap on it and have my keys clipped on and use it as my every day wallet. If I go to a park or a concert or something then I put on the shoulder strap.

This is my favorite Vera Bradley product. The front compartment is large enough to hold my iPhone 4S with an Otterbox case on it. I love how it has a zipper pocket for change. I wouldn't buy this online though, go to a store to make sure your phone fits if you have a large phone or a phablet.

Good, not great
I really wanted to love this! It's got every feature I wanted. I love that it has a place for my phone (iPhone 4s), coins, bills, and credit cards, I love that it has the cross body strap and the wrist strap. What I don't love is that none of it (except maybe the outer snap pocket for the phone) is easily accessible. It's pretty difficult to go to a farmers market and whip out my cash. Everything has to be unzipped first. Coins are difficult to get out of the small inside zippered pouch. The credit cards are really hard to get out of their slots. I am planning to keep it to see if it's useful for short errands, but it's not as great as I was hoping.

Best year-round crossbody ever!!!!!
I bought this in venetian paisley last week. It is bright and colorful for Spring/summer, and the patter is good for Fall/Winter. The fornt compartment holds my iPhone 4S in a lifeproof case perfectly. The wallet section is nice, but there are way too many card slots. In the back section The coin purse can hold around $5 in change (mostly nickels and dimes). Also, in the slots in the back section I can perfectly fit my iPod touch 4th gen (which is in a thin clear snap case). I also love that you can switch between wristlet and crossbody, or just put it in your bag with no strap, Thank you VB for the best bag ever!

I love this product! I got mine in Ribbons and I love the way it looks! There is a long strap which is adjustable and a short wrist strap so you can choose which one you want to use.The front compartment holds my iPhone 4 with a large case perfectly! The second compartment has plenty of card slots, an ID pocket and a bill pocket. The card slots are a little stiff at first but loosen up after a little while. In the back pocket i keep whichever strap i am not using so it won't get lost and some coins in the little zippered compartment. I love this back section of the wristlet because I can store my keys or headphones or any other small item. I use it to go shopping or going out to eat. I showed this to my friend and she loved it so much she bought one too! Thank you so much for making this product Vera Bradley!

I love this cross body/wristlet. I got mine in Venetian paisley (sad to see they are retiring it because it is one of my favorite patterns :'( ) I usually use this when I have to go to campus for class and don't want to carry my huge purse. My iPhone 5 with a thin case fits perfectly in the cell phone pocket. I put my drivers license, student ID, debit/credit cards, cash, and any other kind of card I need in the middle wallet section. I use the back accordion section for receipts, coins, gum, Chapstick, and any appointment or business cards that I may have. There isn't any room left for my keys so I just click them onto the side with the lobster claw clasp. Overall I love this little "purse". I would highly recommend!

"Mighty" Tiny Purse
I have searched for a small purse that holds lots of items for 50 (yes, 50!) years! FINALLY found the all in one crossbody and I feel it was designed just for me. My IPhone in its case, credit cards, bills, coins, lipstick, keys, etc. fit snugly inside this little lite weight miracle, leaving my hands free to shop 'til I drop! I plan to gift this all in one to my daughter, granddaughters and friends. Additionally, it will be a perfect gift for my 92 year old mother who must use a cane or walker to get around. Thank you for solving this 50 year dilemma!
