Safety feature does not work! Not as advertised!
I purchased the breakaway lanyard in Ribbons after seeing it in a Vera Bradley "Liz on Location" video from the Vera Bradley iPad app. In the video, the push-buckle is advertised as a safety feature that "breaks away" from around your neck when you tug on it. I work at a hospital and figured this would be a stylish way to carry my hospital ID around my neck with the added practicality of being easily torn away from my neck in an emergency where I would need to remove my IDs quickly. I've tried several times and the push-buckle breakaway feature simply does not work, even when you really pull very hard! It's not much of a safety feature at all. I should have just gone with the regular lanyard and saved myself a few extra dollars and the disappointment. Ribbons is a gorgeous pattern, however, and supports a great cause!

Great for school
This lanyard is the perfect option for a school ID or lunch card. The breakaway feature is very useful and is a big plus to this product. It is big enough for all of my school IDs and can even fit a pack of gum! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is practical and stylish.

Shocking poor quality
I purchased this item as a gift and should have heeded the other reviewers.
The key hook broke after just 2 days!! I was very embarrassed. Horrible quality and surprising that Vera Bradley has not reviewed these comments and stopped selling this item. It obviously has a known problem. Too bad since its quite cute and useful. Buyer beware!!
