BRING BACK THE SADDLE UP
How many likes and positive reviews will it take before the Vera Bradley Design Team wakes up? The Saddle Up, both versions, is excellent! It has plenty of room without being too big. I'm partial to the latest version because of the zippered-pocket on the back, but both versions are capable of holding all I need, including a tablet.
The long strap is the ace in the hole for this bag. It's a light-weight Crossbody with a lot of pockets and security. I put my phone in the front pocket and have no trouble getting to it with ease! Keys too! Plus, the bag opens up wide for super easy access to anything inside. I love that!
It's a shame we can't buy the Saddle Up in the latest patterns. I won't use any other Vera Bradley style. So that means, unless Vera Bradley brings this bag back to the fans, I won't be spending my money at Vera Bradley. That pains me.
Fellow consumers, if you haven't tried the Saddle Up, please give it a chance. It really is the perfect bag.
Design Team, please listen! With all due respect, you've made a mistake by discontinuing this bag.

The old Saddle-up was better
I was fairly leery when I received the Saddle-up in Provencal for Christmas this past year, having seen so many negative reviews about the re-design of my former favorite. However, I did like the pattern a good bit, and it was a gift, so I started using it. But here I am, less than a month later, and I've barely used it and the magnet is already loose in the flap. For comparison, I have the Saddle-up in Poppy Fields and the magnet recently became loose after about four years of regular use as my go-to bag. Disappointing. Also disappointing to see that Vera Bradley, instead of fixing the design flaws, seems to have decided to just ditch the style altogether. I would really love to see the original design of this bag get resurrected! I own it in three patterns, obviously I'd be thrilled to own it in more!

Oh How I Love The Saddle Up - Old and New
Barbara, The Design Team, Desicion Makers - Listen Up!
I am a long-time fan of Vera Bradley products. I own over $5,000 in Vera Bradley merchandise. So, I hope my opinion carries some weight. I hope.
BRING BACK THE SADDLE UP - BOTH THE OLDER VERSION AND THE NEWER VERSION.
I LOVE this bag, and I CAN'T STAND NOT HAVE IT IN THE NEWEST PATTERNS. It's enough to make me stop buying Vera Bradley AT ALL!
The Saddle Up is the perfect size, the perfect shape, the perfect strap, has the perfect number if pockets, and the absolute perfect design of any bag, anywhere.
Plus, bring it back in Pink Elephants! (What were you thinking not bringing Pink Elephants back in Saddle Up?).
Listen to your best consumer! This is a bag more people will love. Give it much more time. It is the best bag you've ever produced. I have it in every pattern I could get! So does my best friend, as well as my mother and cousin.
Do us a favor, and do yourself a favor, and BRINB BACK THE SADDLE UP!
You don't want to lose our business, and we're such fans! Listen to a businesswoman who knows a good thing when she sees it.
Design Team - I know you're reading this. Give it another round! Please!
This will not be the last time you read this!
