Triple Zip Hipster Crossbody
Pleasantly Surprised! Wonderful Crossbody!
I was hesitant to purchase the Triple Zip Hipster 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 just LOVE this bag. It is so roomy for everything I need to carry yet it is so lightweight. All the zippered comparts keep me organized. The length of the handle is awesome. I am very tall and I really appreciate how long this handle is. I use a cane so it is wonderful to have a crossbody bag. I love how custioned it is because my Kindle goes everywhere with me. I got this bag in the Canterberry Magenta. I also got a wallet and a small make up bag to match. I'm all about the matching ha ha!!!

Love this Bag!
I had to go into a VB store to take a look at this as I wasn't sure of the size or whether it would work for me. I took one look at it and knew it was exactly right. I bought mine in Ziggy Zinnia which I love. I've been used to carrying bigger bags but wanted to downsize a little. I wasn't sure if this would be to small but it was actually bigger than I thought from the pictures. I need a bag that is right in size but also which has enough pockets that I can be organized and know where everything is. The Triple Zip Hipster is perfect for that. I carry my Kindle in one of the zip compartments and the other zip compartments has slip pockets which work great for other things. There is another slip pocket on the outside on the reverse side which is perfect for any size cell phone. While I tend to go back and forth among all my VB bags, I think I will be carrying this one for a good long time. Love this color!
