Turn Lock Satchel
Most Favorite Bag EVER
I usually buy Coach, Cole Haan, or Kate Spade, but have one other VB bag that I liked well enough. I love the Plum Crazy print, so I decided to turn lock satchel in that pattern. I've had the bag for a month now and I absolutely love it!!! It's hands down my favorite bag! There are 2 spots where the threads have started to come out a little, but I just snipped them and it's fine. I tend to carry a fairly heavy load in my purse, being that I have 3 kids, but haven't experienced any problems with the handles….yet anyway. I highly recommend this bag. I believe it's the perfect size and has just enough pockets! As long as this bag holds up for at least a couple years, I will be replacing it with the exact same one!

I loved the older style of the bowler of which I have two different patterns. I just ordered the Turn Lock Satchel and thought it would be an upgrade. However, I was disappointed that there was not as many pockets inside & I really miss the two slide pockets on the outside.

Love love love this bag
This is my first Vera bag and I love it. All of the little pockets inside and the 2 pockets on the outside, one with a zipper and the other with the turn lock are great to organize everything. It is so roomy, you call always take a little extra something with you when you need the space. I have the bag in Bittersweet and next I will order it in Clementine.

This cute bag is big enough that I use it as a dance shoe bag. I can fit 2 pairs of dance shoes, a water bottle, and cosmetics. For a bag this size, it would be nice to have an interior water bottle holder or an expandable pocket. I find the shoulder straps stiff compared to my Elosie bag. The straps of the Elosie is softer and it conform to my shoulder better.

This bag can hold SO much! I carry this bag when I have a little more I need to carry. This bag features rolled handles which are a personal favorite of mine, and it also has a front outside flap and back zipper pocket which makes getting at some things easier when out and about. The front flap has the classic turnlock which is very cute and also makes it a secure pocket great for housing things that you want to keep close to you. This bag can hold a full size wallet as well as a full size agenda. There are many pockets inside too. All and all I would say it is a great bag for anyone for many occasions.

Love the Bag! Could You Make It in a Brown Color?
Last year, I bought the Turn Lock Satchel in Canterberry Magenta. (Love that new Bowler!) However, the best of your browns--Java Blue, Caffe Latte, Imperial Toile, Slate Bloom, and Canyon--are retired. I want to buy another T.L.S. Give us one in a brown pattern, and I will purchase it!!

A Fabulous Find
I just purchased a second satchel yesterday in the new Flower Shower color. This is a roomy, yet not too big bag to carry when I want to go with more than what my Hipster can hold. That is a lot of things, plus a book or magazine, small knitting project and a larger brush if wanted. The rolled handles are sturdy, the pockets inside large. The other color I have is Canterbury Colbalt, and I must say that the other new color Fanfare is stunning, too. I believe this to be a good design and hope it does not change.

Love the bag, But bad experience
I love the turn lock satchel. I got in Clementine and while it is beautiful i have had two bad experiences with this bag. The first one threads where coming lose all through out the bag so I returned it and exchanged it for the same bag. Now with my second, the handles have come undone from the bag and I am not a heavier packer or anything all I carry is my phone, wallet, small cosmetic, and keys. So I am going to have to go exchange it for the second time and am probably going to get the mandy because am scared the same problem will happen if I exchange it for another turn lock satchel. I wish it didn't because the bag in this style is beautiful.

I own two of the original bowler style purses that have been retired. I was upset when they re-designed the style, because the reviews were not so great. When I saw the new bowler, I just had to have it. And I am so glad I decided to make the purchase! It is perfect; as true to the original as can be! The turn lock on the front is just adorable, and, true to Vera fashion, the pockets galore inside are perfect for organization. I am so thankful Vera Bradley listened to their customers and re-designed the much loved bowler! Now I'm going to have to purchase more patterns in this style :) The bowler is, in my opinion, the absolute perfect Vera style; not too big or too small. Thank you, Vera Bradley!

My favorite Vera bag ever!
This is THE best Vera bag I've ever had, and I've had a LOT! I love all the pockets. It's so easy to keep my stuff organized and easily accessible. The front turn lock pocket is perfect for my ipad mini. It slips right in, even with the leather case on it. It's secure and protected. The back zipper pocket is plenty big enough for my keys and iphone (in it's otterbox). The main compartment holds my turn lock wallet, small and medium cosmetic bags with ample room for items in the smaller inner pockets. The handles are great for over the shoulder or carrying in the crook of your elbow. I really just cannot say enough about this bag. I receive compliments on it often. You won't be disappointed!
