Triple Zip Hipster
Love this Hipster!
I have the Triple Zip Hipster in Classic Black, and I love it! I l love the solid color because it is so rich and can be worn with anything. I have the regular Hipster in Classic Black, but this style is so much roomier (it seems to expand more) and has the three separate zip compartments. In the main compartment, I can fit my Kindle, wallet, mints, VB manicure set, a case for my eye/sunglasses, and there is more room. Plus, there is a zip pocket in this main compartment, which holds my pens, notepads, etc. In the front zipper pocket, the one with two slip pockets inside, I can fit my hairbrush, phone, and ID tag/lanyard. In the other zip pocket, I fit all of my make-up, lotion, and hand sanitizer. In the back slip pocket, I fit a package of Kleenex. Wow, I also love how sturdy, secure, and tough the material is. It will hold up during the winter and beyond. Great product overall. I am thinking of buying another in a different color!

Beautiful and Clever Crossbody!
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.

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!
