Lighten Up Large Backpack
I purchased this backpack for back to school since I would be starting college in the fall and it was water resistant. I currently have a jumbo Lilly planner, a spiral bound notebook, two large textbooks, a smaller text book and a large lad manual all in the very back compartment. I look forward to carrying this backpack around campus this fall because it is cute and functional.

Lighten Up Large Backpack in Blue Bayou
Great bag, extremely well made, organization plus! Love the two main compartments. I actually purchased two, as Vera sells out on these. Quality! Black Vera Logo Fabric Lined Interior has all seams covered. Looks like is it made to last years. I just love the colors, reminds me of Hawaii!
Thank you Vera,

I have carried large handbags for years, suffering the consequence of back aches and general inconvenience of dragging a large purse everywhere to shop.
Now, I love my VB backpack! Two hand shopping is wonderful, the product stays clean looking, and the craftsmanship is most impressive. It wears extremely well! I am ordering my second one today for winter use. :)

I have recently bought this backpack in the pattern African Violet. I definitely love the style and look of the backpack. I am going to use this for school, so I put some binders and notebooks to see how full I could stuff this. After putting three 1.5 inch binders and 6 one subject notebooks in, the back section of the backpack was mostly full. The shoulder pads will definitely come in handy when I have to lug around my school supplies all day!! Overall, this backpack seems nice, but I haven't used it much, yet. I am excited to use such a pretty and useful backpack at school for the next few years!

Stuffing It Full!
I'm starting my sophomore year in high school this next fall and I needed a backpack to replace my old one because it could not last one year of the wear and tear of high school. I have to stuff my backpack into a tiny little locker everyday of the year, so I'm hoping that this will last. However, it looks like it might give in because in a lot of parts of the backpack there is only one layer of fabric, the exterior. Good size, but not sure about quality. Also I like the lightness.I have heavy books so the less bulk I can get, I'll take,

Not Sure About the Quality
I just purchased this as I need a large backpack when I'm back on campus finishing my degree after having my baby. I need to carry my breast pump and supplies as well as a cooler bag for milk and also a lunch and books & laptop. Because of the two separate functions I needed (school bag and pump bag) I LOVED that there were two separate compartments. They're roomy and spacious and hold everything I need (which is a lot), although the bag becomes quite heavy and the tech backpack's straps are definitely more padded. My main concern is the quality though. There isn't really any interior fabric on much of the bag, you just see the underside of the exterior fabric. Parts of it aren't trimmed out how I'm used to seeing Vera bags, there are just loose hems exposed in the bag. Loose threads jut out everywhere. I'm concerned about it not being machine washable, this type of material shows water spots when wiped. So honestly even though it's extra large and roomy enough for my needs I just don't think it will hold up and isn't the quality I'm used to from Vera Bradley. I really want to love it but may end up returning it and getting a different backpack or even a get carried away tote or something large enough for my needs.

Stylish and Heavy Duty Backpack
This is the Best from Vera Bradley! The extra compartment is awesome! has lots of room which is great for middle school and above. The straps are very adjustable! Is water proof & is good for a person who carry's water bottles! The smaller pockets are great for extra goodies! Is very cute love all the prints! Handle is good for carrying this backpack! Is quality and don't see wear and tear like normal backpacks! If you need storage, extras and quality this is for you! I'd give it 5 stars! Awesome backpack! P.S. (I didn't get the monogram.) But in the preview you can't even see the lettering so there is no point of getting the monogram. In the I.D. window there is a little piece of paper so just write your name there! I hoped this helped! -Nanz.
