    I have to say that this is NOT a bag for school. If you are buying for school keep looking. This bag is more to carry like a purse backpack but a tad bigger. You would be able to fit in one of the Vera Bradley agenda spirals or a file-a-fax (if you still have one :))) but not an actual school binder one inch or otherwise. I felt like I needed to state that because so many people in reviews were upset about the size. When in doubt; look up the reviews on you tube. I bought this bag to take with me when I help my kids classes on field trips. Recently we went to a nearby farm to pick vegetables as a field trip and I took along the Vera Bradley large lighten up campus two backpack. I have four kids and normally that bag is perfect. Well this time I was only going with one of my kids so I just needed a bag to hold my wallet, keys, cell, and a lunch and bottle of water. Well that bag was way too big and I felt silly carrying it. Soooo, I did some research and found this size Vera backpack. It looked exactly what I needed for those light day trips. I love Vera bags because of the excellent quality. I own several, and have never once had a problem with zippers, construction, or fabric ripping on me.
    This bag is bigger than I expected. It’s quilted and padded and comes with adjustable straps. There is a magnetic closure on the front with two slip pockets underneath and one large slip pocket behind that. There is a zip pocket in the back and another one in the inside. A large pocket and ID slot under the flap in the front. When the base of the bag is folded out its pretty wide. I could easily fit my lunch, a couple bottles of water and my small all in one crossbody wallet, along with an iPhone six plus and both of the cosmetic cases fully loaded. I also love that it’s got a padded rolled handle on the top for hanging or to easily grab. This bag could very easily fit under a seat on a plane with it crammed full to the max. It’s also got two slip pockets on the sides for keys etc. I didn’t think a regular plastic water bottle will fit into those pockets, but was able to squeeze one in. And also on the other side I squeezed in a small Starbucks frappecino bottle. Just to see if they would fit. They do, but you won’t be able to easily get either one out and back in again while having it on your back. I wish the two side pockets were a smidge bigger with elastic on the top like they are on the larger campus backpacks. I also bought the matching set of two cosmetic bags in the same Catalina blues print to use with this bag, and love them! I could put small snacks (granola bars etc) in the larger clear cosmetic, and use the smaller in the bag for my mommy stuff. I have enclosed photos with these two additional bad for reference and sizing. Colors are bright, vibrant, and you can wash it in the machine as long as you hang it to dry. Since I got mine in Catalina blues the coordinating pattern on the inside is in Catalina showers. The full retail price of this bag is $88. That is not what I paid. Think I’m really going to enjoy this bag!

    Where do I begin with this backpack! Its roomier then I expected, the front pockets are really cute and different but you can’t shove a lot in them or the flap won’t lay right and it looks bulky. Otherwise, I love the material, I love the print I’m so happy I chose this out of all the Vera backpacks there are. Note; side pockets do not fit water bottles they are just wide enough for me to shove my Vera Bradley zip ID case in.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE my new work bag. The specs are exactly as described and the print is true as shown. Plenty of space for my lunch, gym & work clothes. I was debating between this Ultimate Backpack and the Double Zip Backpack. I’m thrilled I picked this design. Highly recommended.
