    Fantastic bag!, January 16, 2014
    By 

    I love this bag! I have the Indigo Pop print. I was looking for something that could safely carry my iPad without making my bag look unwieldy. This is perfect. I use the large pocket under the flap for my iPad and the front pocket under the flap for my iPhone. That makes both very easily accessible. I carry my wallet, cosmetics, double glasses case, and lots of other “necessary” stuff in the zippered main compartment. It is great that this compartment also has small pockets to keep things in their appropriate places. I use the zippered outside pocket (on the side opposite from the flap) for my keys, so they are never lost in the bottom of my bag.

    I’ve tried several other bags that either claim to hold an iPad or actually have a designated iPad section, but they tend not to close properly after I put all my other “stuff” in the purse. I think what makes this bag work is its overall height, which allows me to easily zip the bag even with everything I stuff inside. When we travel, I can also add other things I only need in my purse when I’m going out of town. That hasn’t worked with the other “iPad purses” I’ve tried. I can even manage to sneak in my husband’s double glasses case when that is necessary.

    Just for full disclosure, I’m old enough to realize I’m not one of those gals who can carry a tiny purse. I carry a lot with me, so this bag may seem too long for some ladies, but I think that feature is what prevents it from looking like an overstuffed sausage.

    I almost forgot to mention that I love the strap convertibility. When I travel, I want a cross body bag for safety, but I usually just want a shoulder bag. This strap is flexible enough to carry across body, on my shoulder, or even just in my hand. And…the zippers work perfectly! The little Vera Bradley cloth tabs on the zipper pulls make quick closures a breeze!

    I highly recommend this bag.

    I bought this bag to use for my iPad. There is room in here for it and everything else. I have searched a long time for the perfect bag and this is it.

    Can fit an iPad plus large wallet, sunglasses, lipstick, and store coupons in the zip pocket. Provençal is a beautiful pattern love the colors!!! Los of yellow and turquoise!
