Small, but gets the job done
I've had mine for my freshmen year of college, snagged it on sale on base and love the coloring, I love how soft it is, I love how durable it is, and it's lasting me for so long I think I can use it for another semester (practicality wise) before I want a new one for a different print.

Great for camp
This thing holds a lot! I can pack my ipad, phone, camera, change of clothes, swimsuit, towel, etc. It is great for my needs. I also have the campus backpack in blue bayou. This one is smaller, but it is still GREAT! I have this in Julep Tulip!

I got this before last school year and it lasted quite well. The actual fabric tore a bit on the bottom from having it on the floor of all of my classrooms but it's nothing major. I'm using it again this year because it has a great amount of space to put folders. If you know you have a big load, I'd recommend one of the campus backpacks.

I've had this backpack for about 6 months, and it's been great. Even though I don't use it for heavy books, it still has held up after being dropped, thrown, and worn. I haven't really noticed any major rips/tears.Plus it has been used almost every weekend and weekday since December, and has been amazing.

Read for more.!
My review for this product, is average. I find that that is a suitable rating for the fact that this product, is a tad small. Don't get me wrong, the color selection is amazing, and the fact that is can be hooked to a suit case is wonderful. Also, the fact that its nicely made, and comes with a laptop sleeve! My school offers laptops so this backpack is ideal for that case! Over all don't be afraid to get it, just make sure it's on sale!

OK for sophomore year
I got this an outlet in Va Va Bloom for my sophomore year in high school. I could fit my 1 inch math binder, my 1 inch English binder and my small math book in the morning classes, and I had to carry my large history book, It didn't fit. The laptop sleeve held all my folders. The water bottle/ side pockets, can not hold a water bottle, they're too small, so that's where I put my phone and writing utensils. But as the year went on, it started to rip on the bottom. I need to and hope to have it last junior year. OVerall its ok, but probally better for middle school girls, not high school.

Not ideal for Big Loads
I am currently enrolled in high school and take AP classes. I currently have 4 folders, 5 Journals, a book-sized textbook, an emergency kit, a graphing calculator, a book with about 400 pages, a pencil case, an extra shirt and some papers and gum wrappers in my laptop backpack. This backpack is only enough for my NECESSITIES. So I had to constantly clean out my backpack and put things that I may need later in my drawer at home. This was unfortunate because I like to be prepared and carry everything with me. The two sides just BARELY fit my water bottle in there, I have to use force to be able to get them in there and the bottom of this backpack is ripped and dirty, which is understandable considering the fact that it is quilted. I would recommend to not pull/push this backpack while it is on the ground because over time it rips and collects dirt. This backpack is more ideal if you don't need to carry much but if you have a much bigger load then the campus backpack would be much more ideal! But I WILL be purchasing it again because it is fun, stylish and cute which makes up for the limited room!

we were so upset that VB was all out of campus backpacks in lilli bell so we decided to take a risk and get the laptop backpack in lilli bell instead and we are so happy we did that! The laptop back pack has a slot for a laptop which u can also put folders in! The laptop back pack can fit the following items
1.a zippy binder
2.a 2014 student agenda
3. a lunch break
4.a pencil box
6. a math book
7. a brush and pencil case
8. a little hipster
in the front pocket i can fit
1.a fabric journal
2. multiple pencils
3. a owl journal
4. a change purse
5. a pink pencil pouch
so we totally recommend this for anyone in school looking for a cute bag! My one and only complaint was the side pockets can not fit a water bottle which was really weird cuz most backpacks side pockets can EASILY fit water bottles!
Hope this helped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Backpack for Serious Workload!
This backpack is AMAZING! The laptop sleeve is very convenient and the space inside is great for heavy binders and folders. The front zipper compartment hold pens, ID, you name it! The padding for the shoulders is very comfy and there are a great deal of pockets! I have this backpack in Limes Up and I definitely recommend this backpack!

Laptop Backpack in Heather
I bought this back pack in july, for the 2013-14 school year. It is now may and it has lasted me. I am a freshman in high school. I normally put my 13 inch, macbook pro in the laptop sleeve, which it provides enough protections, And in the main compartment, I carry a 1 ½" binder, 2 notebooks, and a planner. I really enjoy the little pockets and compartments. I always put my phone in one os the side pockets, and my phone charger in the other side pocket.
But if you are looking for space this is not the bag for you, as If have have a jacket that I put in my bag, it makes it crammed And it just doesn't not have enough room for any spur of the moment items. I loved the color, and the style. But the quality was lacking, Ive owned many other vera bradley bags and back packs and by far this has worn and faded the quickest.
It did seem to get dirty rather quickly but I just threw it in the washer on delicate and let it air dry and It was as good as new.
