Wonderful, Organized Bag -- Great for Travel!
I recently purchased this Mailbag because I was going on a trip and wanted a crossbody bag. I also wanted a bag that I would definitely use after trip. After much hemming and hawing, I chose the Mailbag in black because it would match everything. I brought it on a three-day weekend trip, where I could only have a carry-on bag and one "personal" item, like a pocketbook. This was my personal item, and it was perfect! I used the Grand Traveler for my carry-on and it held my clothes, make-up and toiletries and jewelry. This bag was my smaller carry-on, and I used it to hold a book, my Nook tablet, my phone, my wallet, my charging cords, and other small items like gum and mints, gloves, sunglasses, etc. It was so easy and safely held everything in the different pockets and compartments, and still was very flat on my body. I love the long strap. It was perfect for walking around the city all day and didn't get cumbersome. I will be using it for years to come and so pleased with my decision to get the black microfiber. It's a beautiful bag.

Perfect Bag for so many ocassions
I knew I wanted a mailbag, but was torn on the pattern to get. I have so many favorites, and own hipsters and cross bodies in quite a few, but I wanted something I could travel with and be appropriate in all situations, something comforatble, fit my ipad, hard shell sunglass case, and this is it!! Love it so much. Well made, comfortable, just perfect. This style holds lots when you need that, and looks great with not so much in it!! Now to get it off my shoulder and use some of the cross bodies I purchased this week at the Ft Wayne outlet sale lol!!!!

Quite a Trooper!!!
I am quite impressed with this bag. I have several crossbody bags from V.B. but this one is the best. The compartments are easily accessible and very spacious, yet it sits neatly at my side.I have the Clare which I love, but this bag can do double duty by carrying notebooks as well as all my accoutrements(overstuffed wallet, books, small shawl, etc.). My Doctor suggested that since I carry so much weight, I should switch to crossbody bags. I think I have found the one!
