Measurements are off
Just got the Villager in Heather. Love the size, but the measurements are off by at least 1 1/2" wide and 1" tall/deep. They really need to correct this. More like 14 1/4" x 11" x 4"

ordered in a new color, I liked the old version!
Great color, midnight blues! I am a fan of the villager, but this new one has very thin straps!! this Bag would be great if the straps were wider and sturdier. The thin straps are the reason for a lower score.

So glad this is back!
I bought two in Canterbury Magenta and Heather the first day it was released. My all time favorite bag. I already have four. I wish you were releasing more print versions. I love all the pockets.

You brought back the Best!
Thank you! Thank you! Didn't understand why you took her away in the first place. Thank you for bringing Villager back. Vera may be the "signature" tote, but Villager outshines. Why? A zipper on the top would be my first point: Vera does not offer this security. 2nd: Vera is huge, Villager is the perfect size. 3rd: inside organization pockets: 6 of them ring the inside of this sweet bag; plus 2 outside pockets are awesome for keys and cell phone. Villager can hold your wallet, planner, lunch, water bottle, crayons for the kids, Kleenex, hair brush, make-up...you get the idea and each item has it's own pocket! If you ever give Villager a chance, you will never be happy with any other bag.

So glad Villager is back!
Villager has been my favorite Vera for years - actually the only bag I've been really happy with. So glad it's back! Just bought the Canterberry Magenta - it's gorgeous - great for winter. The Venetian Paisley is calling me too. Thanks VB for bringing back this wonderful bag.

My first Villager and I LOVE it!
I've been a Vera fan for quite some time, but never owned a Villager, so I wasn't sure if I would like this bag. With all the hype about it being re-released, I thought, why not give it a try... I'm so glad I did! Since I wanted the new Venetian Paisley pattern, I chose that. It is absolutely beautiful probably my favorite pattern thus far. The colors are rich, bright, and actually blend with just about everything I wear. Since I'm the mom of a toddler, my bag must pull double duty and the Villager does just that. I can carry my accordion wallet, brush and pencil, travel size wipe case, and an extra pull-up just in the center area. All the inside pockets hold all other small necessities including my iPhone 5 in an otter box case and my keys clipped to the must have zip ID case. The outer pocket holds the sippy cup which goes everywhere we do! There is plenty of room left to throw any other extra items on top. Did I mention that I love this bag?!?! Thanks!!

VILLAGER IS BACK! Thank You!
I am writing for all the women I know who haven't bought Vera products since the Villager was gone. THANK you for listening to us. Please make it in Indigo Pop. Thank you for bringing it back without any changes. It really is the PERFECT bag. I always bought a Villager, Vera, Miller, Tote and zip around wallet in all patterns I Liked along with other styles like the weekender. Without my favorite Villager I just didn't want to start buying a new pattern. WE LOVE THE VILLAGER! Thank you!

Love it !
I recently purchased the Villager in Heather. I've been carrying the Mandy and really liked the 6 interior pockets and easy access to my things. I’m a new Vera girl as of this summer with the little hipster, and saw that the Villager had been very popular before I was better acquainted with Vera, so I decided to give it a try. I chose Heather because I thought the colors were a nice pop of cooler colors that would be good for winter. When I opened the bag I wondered if I had gone too far.....could I pull off this pattern and print ? I'm 35 and I didn't know if this fun color was going to work for me. I love it. The strap length is really great. The bag hits at just the right spot when you are carrying it. The interior pockets are a set of three on each side , like the Mandy that I liked so well, but they are wider and deeper. I can fit my small sized e-reader with case in one of the larger middle pockets. It also holds my turn lock wallet and small cosmetic. I used the other pockets for lotion, gloves, and pepper spray for when I go running. I still have plenty of space left. I just have to say how much I like the Heather in the Villager style. Just sitting it on the seat of my grey colored seats in my car made me realize how happy the color makes me as we go into the dreary winter time. The top zipper is great as well, as I am known to throw my bag into the car while in a hurry.
