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.

cute, but not quite ultimate
I just got this backpack today. While it is roomier on the base of the bag, it tapers up pretty slender at the top. This makes the side pockets to small to carry a water bottle in.I don't know why the designers at Vera Bradley didn't take this into consideration. The old backpack will fit a regular size water bottle, and the style before that didn't. 'It would be perfect if I could carry my water bottle on the outside instead of on the inside of my bag (makes sense). I think many reviewers will feel the same way. Otherwise, it has lots of pockets on the outside and a zipper pocket inside. Maybe by the next backpack revision they will get it right.
