Rated 4 out of 5 by Delia Good wristlet for everyday use
I bought this wristlet in hopes it would fit my iphone 6. I was not disappointed, the iphone 6 with a slim case fits great. I understand the wrist strap was redesigned from the previous version. While it is a better placement for the phone, I find that change drops from the wristlet because the zipper section will not stay zipped. I believe it needs a complete redesign. While the zipper pocket isn't particularly useful, the wristlet overall is good quality, has adequate slots for credit cards, money and ID. Best of all my iphone 6 in a slim case fits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CookieNC V 2.0 wrist strap is in the wrong place!
First I need to say how much I love Vera Bradley products, especially the ORIGINAL Smartphone Wristlet! I have 7 of them! Convenient, functional and easy to use. I have all matching handbags, but often put my phone (iPhone5s w/Otter Box) in it, clip on my car key and do my shopping only with the Wristlet and leave my handbag in the car.
With that said, the reason for my poor rating is because the newly designed V 2.0 Smartphone Wristlet is awkward and inconvenient to use! The wrist strap has been moved from the end of the zipper to the side of the zipper which means you have to remove it from your wrist to open the zipper. This is especially bothersome when you have other packages on that same wrist. In the original version you can open the zipper, and remove a credit card or show your ID with it still on your wrist.
The new 2.0 version also moved the coin purse to the outside and created a place for dollar bills. Who carries that much cash around these days! In the original version it was easy to fold 5-6 bills and put them in the inside coin purse, which was also accessible without removing the smartphone from your wrist.
Oh, and your drivers license is on the inside now, which means you also have to take the Wristlet off your wrist to open it when you need your ID.
Love the original design, don't like V 2.0. I recommend buying the original design before they are all retired!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mwasser Great wristlet!
I bought this wristlet when my old smartphone wristlet broke. Great purchase, just wish the coins were back on the inside. It doesn't come apart, like others have mentioned, but it can sometimes get in the way. Still a great design!
