Turn Lock Satchel
Beautiful but stiff
This is a beautiful bag. Plenty of compartments and slots for everything. I have tried many black Vera totes and purses, hoping to find something dressier and a little smaller than my favorite pleated and campus tote. The Glenna is nice as well, but I wanted something a little more classic looking like this satchel. This is the perfect sophisticated look!
Unfortunately, the handles could be a little longer and it is pretty stiff because of the reinforcements along the bottom. It would be perfect if it wasn't quite so wide at the bottom so it would lay against your body better but since it is stiff like, it is not as comfortable as the bowler.
I love the look of it and the organization, but unfortunately its not as comfortable to carry as the campus and pleated totes which are my favorite go to Vera's.
Please come out with more styles in classic black!

What a wonderful bag!
Just bought the turn lock satchel yesterday at the store and WOW! I bought it in magenta and I absolutely love it. It fits everything and then some. It has 5 inside pockets and an inside zip pocket plus another zip pocket outside on the back AND the lock one on the front. So much space and so many nooks to organize little things. The pictures here don't do the bag justice but the second I saw it in the store..... I was hooked! Oh, and I was able to wear it over my shoulder with a puffy winter jacket on as well.

Love This Bag!
My husband got me the Magenta Turn Lock Satchel for Christmas and I love it. The color is beautiful and it fits everything I need and then some. The only negative for me is the 9" strap/handle drop. I like to carry my bag on my shoulder, which I can still do, but it would be more comfortable at 11".

I love this bag
This bag is great. I love all the organization in this bag. It is a good size and holds a lot. I am taking this on my next plane trip. I can put my nook in the size pocket and my iPad fits easily in the main compartment and still room for snacks Plus it looks great. What more could you ask for? I got it in colbalt.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
i love everything about this purse. I love the solid black, it goes with everything, and all the other Vera Bradley accessories are easily seen inside the spacious interior, with plenty of pockets to organize everything. I use the front pocket for my iphone, safely sipped into one of Vera's Neoprene Tech Wristlet, which fits the iphone with an otterbox case perfectly. I especially love that all of Vera's bags are light weight, so easy to carry a lot of stuff, and the purse's weight isn't part of the equation. So many other luxury purses are so heavy they are uncomfortable to carry. This is a five star purse. I am new to Vera, but I am a huge fan, and plan to buy her items for years to come, thank you Vera, for such wonderful accessories.

Beautiful Purse....Very Pleased!
I like the style of the original bowler, but prefer the solid colors. I am so glad that they came out with the Turn Lock Satchel in black microfiber. It is beautiful! I am really pleased with my purchase. In the front pocket, I put my original Nook (the white one). It fits perfect! On the interior, there are 3 slip pockets on one side, on the other are 2 larger slip pockets, & a deep, zippered pocket that goes all the way to the bottom of the bag, and a big zippered pocket across the back. I also purchased the matching accordion wallet. Very, very pleased! Thank You!
