Love this backpack
This is my first backpack from VB. I bought it to use for traveling. I needed something that I could carry my IPad, my VB wallet, and a few carry on items. This backpack is the right size. It's not to big. The sales lady at VB recommended the mail bag purse. I felt that was just to big and bulky for what I was looking for. This backpack has a zipper area on the back that your iPad can fit into. Although it also can fit in the front pocket with a flap closure. I don't feel that is as secure. It also has two slip pockets under flap. Behind the flap pocket is a large slip pocket. The main zip area has a small zip pocket in the inside that is great for a cell phone, keys, or small items. I can't wait to use it on my next trip. I bought it in the color pink swirls.

The Ultimate Backpack for a girl on the go!
I've had the smaller version of this backpack but it didn't hold enough for me to use often. This version is perfect! I can hold a book, my planner, a journal and my turn lock wallet... and thats only in the large compartment! My kindle fire fits in the large pocket in the front. The pockets are roomy and can hold random things, like compact mirrors and make up. Over all this bag is amazing and I'm so happy I got it.

Please fix the side pockets!
This is an okay backpack but would get 5 stars if only the side pockets were at least roomy enough to hold a water bottle. Like other reviewers I am stumped as to why they are not. I have an old style Vera small backpack that has the elasticized side pockets and fits a water bottle perfectly. The side pockets on this one are pretty much useless since they are too narrow for even my sunglass case and I would not stick my phone in an unsecured pocket.
I do like the size of this backpack. It holds everything I need for myself and my 2 year old without being too big and bulky. Sadly it will not get much use because of the side pockets. I live in a hot climate and need to have water easily accessible for myself and a sippy cup for my toddler. Please, please, please change the side pockets on this bag when you make it in future designs and it will be perfect! I notice that I am one of many that shares this complaint.
