Rated 5 out of 5 by HarleyGirl62 MY NEW FAVORITE
I just got this bag in Pink Swirls, and I love it. I love the 3 different compartments, which will accomodate the items I tend to carry. The strap is comfortable and sturdy. The top section of this purse has a zipper compartment on the INSIDE of the purse, something I always like in a purse. The bottom section has 2 slip-pockets on the inside of that section; the middle section has a good-sized pocket as well. I have all the room I'd ever need in this new style. I finally have a purse that suits my needs; separate compartments; very stylish; well-made, and reasonably priced--- all the things I look for in a purse**I'll be ordering this style again, in another color soon!! Way to go Vera!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyColors Perfect "tourist bag"; holds so much, but slim!
I just returned from overseas & am so glad I bought the Triple-Zip Hipster for my crossbody purse! The design is more square than the regular Hipster, making it easier to access everything at the bottom of the bag. But the real design winner is the zippered compartments that let you separate your stuff for quick access. The top zippered area ends about halfway down the bag, helping maintain a flatter profile (for ex, my camera went there, but b/c that pocket is shorter & keeps the camera from ending up at the bottom of the bag, it spreads out the bulk vertically). For security as a tourist, you can wear the bag with all the zippers facing your body, & then you still have an easily accessed non-zip pocket on the other side for tissues or a water bottle. I rated the quality a 4 rather than 5 for one easily worked-around reason (not a quality issue per se, but a design issue): it's best if you begin zipping the main compartment using two hands so you don't stress the zipper's starting point--use one hand to hold it firmly as you pull the zip tab away, giving it a gentle start. No big deal.
(Airline-travel note: I put the empty Triple-Zip Hipster into my carry-on bag to be used after I arrived; my carry-on was the Grand Cargo and my "personal item" was the Cargo Sling b/c I wanted access to more items in flight than the Triple-Zip Hipster would hold.)
I also have to put in a plug for 5-star VB customer service in getting me this bag on time although I had forgotten to add it to my prior order. I was impressed by CS before, but this bag order sealed the deal--VB may be a huge company, but when I'm speaking with their reps on the phone, I feel as if I'm talking to a local, small store that cares about its customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stephthomas14 LOVE this bag
I bought this bag the other day and I must say...I absolutely LOVE it! The bag has a ton of pockets and I love the one on the back the perfectly fits by cell phone. I loose my phone all the time, so this is perfect for me. I love the length of the strap. I'm definitely a cross-body girl. The print is adorable Ziggy Zinnia. The ONLY thing I would change about the bag is making it just a little wider. I use the Turn-Lock wallet and it fits, but it could use a little more room. I honestly don't think you could go wrong with this bag! It's a perfect mix between the Hipster and Mailbag. :)
