I absolutely love the Raisin microfiber! It is a rich color that seems to go with everything. As for the Triple Zip Hipster, I was hesitant to purchase it at first because the regular Hipster is too narrow for me and the Mailbag (most recent style) is too long and narrow for me. I thought that this bag would be too narrow and too long but it is neither! It actually is perfect for me (I am not quite 5' 4"). I like crossbody bags to fall near my hip and I like the look and feel of a messenger but don't always like messing with a flap to get to the main compartment. The Triple Zip feels like a messenger bag but with easier access. I love the staggered interior of the second and third zippered compartments. I don't like when everything ends up on the bottom regardless of the number of compartments. This bag truly has three compartments. The main compartment fits all the bigger stuff; the second and third compartments fit the small, at hand items like keys, lib balm, tissue, etc. There is even a convenient slip in pocket on the back perfect for concealing a mobile phone but still within easy reach. Another little detail is the slightly recessed top zipper that makes it easy to unzip versus if the zipper was set on the very top. I have several VB crossbody styles and have always favored the now discontinued Clare, but the Triple Zip might be my new favorite! It is lightweight, comfortable to carry and has clever compartments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VBcustomer22 I found "the one."
This is my favorite style so far. I'm tall and I think this style is more flattering on me than the others. I got a compliment the first day I wore it #directed at the purse, not me:#. It's also lightweight and fits a surprising amount of stuff without looking bulky. I only use the back open pocket for tissues -I have a cold- because it isn't very deep and I don't want my phone falling out. That's fine with me because there are plenty of zippered pockets-even one inside the main compartment. The strap is a little stiff, but so far it has been comfortable and it looks fine. I haven't had this that long so I can't give a full review of quality. I hope it lasts because it's now my favorite casual purse!

I had my reservations about buying this bag, but I am so happy I did! It is a lot bigger than the pictures make it look and can hold a decent amount of stuff. I had been using the VB Mailbag, but needed a more professional looking bag for work. Most of what I had in my Mailbag was able to fit nicely in the Triple Zip Hipster. I am able to fit a full-size iPad in the main compartment as well as my wallet, keys, and a small cosmetic bag. My epi-pen and inhaler, as well as my other mess easily fit in the small zipper pocket. The middle zip pocket easily holds a phone charger, Kleenex, coin purse, and a bunch of miscellaneous stuff I stick in my purse. My iPhone 5s in an otterbox case easily fits in the back slip pocket.
My only gripe is the strap. It is not soft like the other bags and is a little stiff. However, that's not enough of a problem to keep me from thinking about getting a second one! And one more bonus...I can fit this purse in the VB pleated tote with my lunch and a few other necessities. Overall a new favorite bag!
