Great Fit for My IPAD 2
I have this in Canterberry Magenta and am using it as an everyday, go-to-the-office bag. My IPAD2 with the the Apple Smart Case fits nicely in the front pocket. I think I have tried just about all of the VB totes. I think the Vera is an excellent bag. By comparison, this tote is smaller but seems to hold the same amount. It has more organizational features including two convenient outside end pockets and, since my IPAD is isolated in the front pocket, I don't have to worry that it is getting tossed around with my other things. I still use the Vera for knitting (for which it is excellent) and will probably go back and forth between these two but all in all, I think this is a great design. I am very pleased. Will make a great carry-on bag as well because it zips closed.

Great Purse. Wish front pocket was bigger.
I bought this bag because of the name "Tablet Tote". I thought it would be the perfect sized bag and fit my iPad 3 as well. I do love the bag, especially the color. I have always bought the bright patterns, but the simple black color is great, and the inside is light, so looking inside and trying to find things isn't an issue. My problem is that my iPad will not fit in the front pocket. I have the Griffin Survivor on my iPad but it will not fit comfortably at all and I fear ripping the bag. I tried the iPad without a case and it fits fine, but I can't imagine carrying around my iPad without a case, especially in a purse where it can get dropped/bumped/dirty or worse.
Other than the fact my iPad doesn't fit with the case in the front pocket, I like the purse. I do wish the pocket was a bit bigger, but I use it for my car keys and cell phone. I love the pockets on the inside and it has a good bit of space. Plus having a zipper is great!

Just received yesterday and love it!
I ordered this bag the day it was available and received it yesterday. I absolutely love it - it looks so sturdy and professional and it holds all my stuff! The straps are a little stiffer than the patterned bags, but I'm fairly sure they'll lax a bit with regular use.
