Favorite Vera Bradley bag!
This is the greatest bag of the ones I own and have seen! My first favorite was the hobo but it sags and you have to dig for items as it is very deep. The next every day use bag I own is the tablet hipster which is great but has less space for your items (once the iPad is in it) and also weighs on you after a while.
Back to this bag. It has a back zipper that fits your phones , keys or makeup. It also has two front small pockets under the flap that can easily fit my iPhone or any celphone with a thick cover as well. The inside is perfect. I can fit the iPad, a spiral notebook, a full size wallet ( I have the accordion matching VB) and a few toiletries. It works great for on the go and keeps the cute form. The strap can be used long or short which makes it very versatile. Love, love , love this bag! As far as the magnetic closure, I touched it and it doesn't seem to move much for now. I guess you could mess around later on or sew some if need too like others have said. Definitely not a big deal. This is a great bag especially when bought on sale! The color baroque is beautiful. My new favorite.

Voting for Old Version w/ Ring
I was just looking to purchase another color since the one I have in white/black shows dirt constantly, but prefer the older version. I can't rave about the older version w/ ring enough. Can't believe this is being retired, as a mom of an infant, this purse is great to wear as a cross body and perfectly fits a diaper/wipe box and snacks inside without being too heavy and quickly accessible while not taking up a hand or a shoulder. Please rethink this decision, as this style is the perfect size without the bulk!

I recently purchased Saddle Up in Baroque. I was apprehensive when purchasing because of all of the negative comments, but I find that it is a wonderful everyday purse. The magnetic closing stays closed, there are ample pockets inside, and one zipped pocket on the outside. It is very compfortable to wear as a crossover and everything is easily accessible. I originally bought the bag as a travel purse, but I find it is the purse I want for everyday trips to the grocery store, field trips or shopping. Glad I wasn't pursuaded by other's comments.
