To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this purse because I love Vera Bradley purses. This is my third one, and it is so poorly made. The ziipper is wide, cheap metal and it sticks. The magnet on the back pocket hardly works, and the lining is cheap polyester, not soft cotton. The seam covers are wide, not nicely ribbed as on my old model. The bottom isn't flat, I don't know how my items would balance inside. This is not Vera Bradley quality. All this is true. However, a few weeks have passed since I decided not to return it, as I needed it for an upcoming trip. I like the butterfly design as It goes with my clothes , and it was in my hand when I needed it, thanks to Amazon's shipping practices. After some use I have found that the defects mean less to me than the assets. The numerous pockets, and the overall light weight do make it easy to use, and I actually have grown to love it. So I do recommend this product with some reservations.
Great for commuting. Now I use one bag vs purse plus bag for work. Measurements did not match description. Very bright so may put in tea water to mute Otherwise love the cloth padded strap. Great storage for commuting as it comfortably holds two iPhones and an iPad plus other items.
This mailbag by Vera Bradley is not of the same quality as the first one I received. The lining is more like a plastic and louder when you use the pockets. The material is more suitable to a beach bag or tote than a purse in my opinion. It no longer has the charge pocket. The description needs to be changed. I should have known better than to try to buy this online....but the first bag met all my expectations. Perhaps this is a newer version, but if so, is definitely inferior to the original.
