And under the front flap, there’s even more organization, including a deep multifunctional compartment that’s a perfect fit for a tablet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nooo! Not Shiny! I have the old one from two or three years ago, and I wanted to get a crisp new one.. But now it has shiny piping? NO no NO! I want the old subtle-sophisticated crisp-tailored black, not bling! Waah. PLEASE bring back the regular design! I am so desperate I was thinking getting of the other black backpacks- but they are just too ginormous for purses. Please get rid of the shine!! And I HAD recommended my old one to everyone as they always ask me, "Omg, where did I get that?" but now I can't tell them! :( September 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am SO HAPPY! This just arrived today and I am so happy and excited to start using it. I had been looking for something to use as a handbag while out and about with my 4 yr-old and 9-month old children (that would keep my hands free). I previously ordered, but returned another brand-name backpack. When my Vera Bradley Ultimate Backpack arrived, I knew it was exactly what I wanted; smart and stylish (love the quilted navy with patent piping), and great functionality. It's feminine looking and not too bulky - lots of extra compartments to store snacks and supplies for the kiddos, my wallet, phone, etc. The quality is great too - nice material, custom VB hardware, and the adjustable straps are actually in a looped design, so whatever amount of material you aren't using, it doesn't hang down sloppily (like the backpack I returned from another brand). I'm gushing here...but I can't wait to start wearing it! July 17, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Love the backpack, but . . . . I love this backpack. I've had it before many years ago, and was looking forward to having a newer one. However, the stitching that holds the front pocket on is already coming unraveled. I don't want to send it back, but will probably have to get it repaired. I'm so disappointed that I have to invest more money into this bag, because I feel like it was already above what I would normally spend. Not so sure I would recommend to a friend. February 1, 2015
