A wallet, with a little bit more!
I am not fond of carrying a purse- I really enjoyed just carrying my Smartphone Wristlet whenever possible. But, I need to carry epipens with me everywhere, so that didn't work well for me. This is the perfect solution! There is enough room for my wallet essentials, plus a couple of epipens and Benadryl, without me having to go to a full purse, handbag, or crossbody.
I just wish it came in Lime's Up- I really wanted that pattern for a fun summer pattern.

Defective but loved the design
I am returning mine as the lock fell apart after only a couple of days. I love the design but I am returning and hesitant to re-order same design for fear of same problem. This could have become a favorite as it is larger than the zip around but still compact and holds smartphone, fits all necessities. I would love to hear more from other customers.

Doubles as a large wallet.
I picked up this wristlet last week to use as my wallet and I love it. I was looking for a larger wallet because I divide my cash up into envelopes. The inside is roomy, includes four credit card pockets and a zip pocket. The front pushlock pocket is perfect for my phone and I like the option of the removable strap. This wristlet is slightly larger than the original wristlet and is so much fun! Great product!

Great Wristlet! More useful than standard version
I went to see this on release day and wasn't too impressed.. I really thought it would be way too small. I left disappointed that day.
After getting my Little Hipster (also reviewed), I started looking at this again. I've been trying to find one in Ribbons and apparently so has everyone else because it was impossible to find.....until I opened my birthday present from my husband today!
I am totally won over. Not only is it a great style for one of my fav patterns (Ribbons) but it holds much more than thought. Fits my iPhone 5 in a Lifeproof case (not wide but taller) in the pushlock with no problems. I have my ID and several cards in the 4 roomy slip pockets (warning, the two on the side of the unzipped zipper can be a bit difficult to get in and out but not horrid), bills/change and my medical ID in the zipper pocket inside. Then a rather bulky pill box, my Burt's Bees spray hand sanitizer (awkward fit but works) and a pen in the main open area. It DOES look pretty packed in there but if I got a normal pocket sanitizer it wouldn't.
All in all, very happy with it and hubby won big brownie points! :)

The Best Wristlet Yet!
I LOVE this new style of wristlet! It's the best one yet. It is larger but that's why it's so great! You can fit cash, cards, keys, tissues, lipgloss and anything else you can't live without that's small and needs to come with you. I also love carrying my iphone in the front pocket with no worries of anything scratching it up :) I have two patterns already...I know I'll be buying many more...a girl just can't have enough VB!

I received this wristlet as a birthday gift and LOVE it! I'm a mother of two and carrying a purse and diaper bag was getting to be too much, so I was needing something that could transition from a purse to a diaper bag with ease and not having to move a lot of things around. This is what I was looking for! I can fit all of my cards (about 2-3 in a slot), my checkbook (with pen), chap stick, lip gloss, cell phone, keys, and cash in it with a little more room to spare! The front pocket is great for my cell phone. I have it in the Tutti Frutti pattern and is it is very cute. I've showed it to co-workers and they want one too! I would definitely recommend!!

Great New Style
I am a big fan of the Vera Bradley wristlets, and I was so excited when I heard about the new Pushlock Wristlet. I was immediately impressed with its size - it's much roomier than the traditional VB wristlet. The four card slots keep you organized, with the zipper compartment for your bills and change. There's a lot of room inside for a few cosmetics, gum, etc. I love the outer compartment, too - it's perfect for a cell phone (it's plenty big for a smart phone) and/or keys.

I have been looking for a good wristlet to get me away from carrying my purse. I've been a Vera owner for years & when I saw this one online I made sure I went to my local Vera shop the day it came out, I LOVE IT! It's perfectly organized on the inside as every Vera product is & it's big enough to carry more than just your money, cards, & phone. I bought mine in the new tutti frutti & the pattern is gorgeous!
Overall...I'm obsessed with this wristlet!

Pushlock opens too easily
I have this wristlet in Plum Crazy and love it. The only problem is that when I'm holding it, my finger naturally lands right on the pushlock and opens it. I try holding it differently but it isn't comfortable. As a result, I can't keep anything of any value in the front pocket. I have my shopping list and pen in it because if that falls out, it's not a big deal. I would have preferred a turnlock rather than the pushlock.
