Lighten Up Large Backpack
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.

Ah so cute
I always saw the other backpacks and did not feel for them but this backpack makes me go crazy did not buy it yet it's a little pricey just waiting for it to go on sale then I will definitely buy it for my daughter. She loves vera bradley and will love this! The design I am thinking of is the orange and pink one I think it is not as much very bradley but definitely fell in love with it. I also like all the zippers and packets. I hope it last as long as there lunch boxes!

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.
