I'm a sophomore in college and this is my second VB backpack. I bought the campus backpack last year and I absolutely loved it, plenty of space and super cute! One of my pens accidentally busted inside it towards the end of the year and thankfully it didn't bleed outside of the backpack so no one could tell, but I decided to buy a new one for the school year and went with this tech backpack since my laptop always shook around in the campus backpack. I'm disappointed at how small this backpack is, I can barely fit two binders and a calculator in it and that's just not going to work for me. I don't see how there's other reviews on here that say they can fit their whole room but I plan on returning this for another campus backpack. Still love Vera though!

Best VB Backpack EVER
As a long term, highly addicted VB fan, I feel exceptionally qualified to proclaim this as the best VB backpack ever! I have used them for years, for school, then as a diaper bag, and now as my main work bag. I also buy them each year for my children for school. This newest style is my favorite work bag ever. It has a place for my MacAir, a compartment on the front for my iPad, pockets on each side for phone and keys, and a small zippered compartment on the front that is perfect for pens, lipgloss, mints, eye drops, Kleenex, etc, all the little items you don't want to dig around for. The main compartment holds tons of stuff and includes a roomy zippered compartment that holds meds and supplies you want to keep private. The straps are wide, well padded and super comfy. The only thing missing is a zippered compartment on the back for my wallet. My daughter loves hers for school too!

College Girl Now Going Places
This backpack came 15 minutes ago (ordered online) and I'm IN LOVE WITH IT!
As a girl who has a VERY long commute to her university campus every morning via the Metra (Chicago), I'm now able to fit my binders (5), textbooks (5 small, 1 medium, two large and bulky), my laptop INSIDE its laptop case (13" macbook air with the vera bradley laptop case), my water bottle, snacks, pencils and pens and STILL have room for a future iPad mini that I need to save up for. I've had JanSports backpacks that would fit everything inside as well, but the weight and the position on my back would be noticeable. The padding really helps keep the pressure of all the stuff inside to a minimum and the design and structure are superb for the few city blocks I need to walk every morning. I really do recommend this product for all who will be walking a lot on their college campuses. Before now, I've been taking my car and driving to my campus because I didn't know where to put all of my items, but now because of this backpack, I can carry everything with me and just take the train.
Plus, it's really cute. I got the flutterby pattern.
This is also my first time getting items from vera bradley (laptop case came at the same time)
