Meet the Mailbag (again)

Meet the Mailbag
After a few alterations, our Mailbag style is back and better than ever. But, don’t take it from us. Here’s what you had to say:

This is the one for your iPad…

July 29, 2012 | Posted by Llilly from Illinois
“I’ve tried a lot of bags, and finally found the perfect one in the Mailbag. There are two separate main compartments, one zips and the other under the flap so I can store my iPad in one and not have to have it interfere with any other articles in my bag when I don’t need it. It has a slim profile, but deep bottom so there is plenty of room for what I need to carry without it looking and feeling bulky. The adjustable strap is icing on the cake. If you carry your iPad daily, you need this bag.”

Perfection!

“I’ve been waiting for a bag that was a little bigger than the Hipster and I’m so glad it’s here! I absolutely love the Mailbag and can fit everything I need into it. I love the different pockets for organization. It’s just a perfect everyday bag for me.”

It’s like it was custom made for me!

“This bag is absolutely amazing! It fits everything you need without looking too bulky, and the crossbody design frees up your hands. There are three large pockets and one small zippered pocket on the back. The first pocket under the flap is perfect for holding a notebook (I bought the matching Paisley Meets Plaid Notebook) the second pocket is a bit larger and is able to fit my iPad perfectly (even in the case)! The next pocket is very accessible at the top of the bag, it’s a zippered pocket and is perfect for your wallet, keys, sunglasses, etc. The last pocket is a small zippered pocket on the back of the bag, it’s perfect for gum, [lip balm], pens, or whatever small items you need. I am definitely in love with this bag!”

ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS

July 23, 2012 | Posted by JacquelineB from Oklahoma
“I am not a person who usually carries a crossbody bag but I purchased the Mailbag in Paisley Meets Plaid and absolutely LOVE IT! I can just drape it across my body and go…hands free shopping, etc. This bag has so much room and you wouldn’t expect that. Everything I fit into a large bag, fits comfortably in the Mailbag with room to spare. This is a must for any student, parent or grandparent who likes to have their hands free to do other things.”

A little hipster, A little saddle!

July 10, 2012 | Posted by Gleechick609 from New Jersey
“The only word to describe this bag is AWESOME! It has the full body of a Hipster (much bigger in width! Includes the two inside pockets and a zipper closure) and outside flap mimics the Saddle Up bag (magnetic closure). When you open the outside flap, there are two compartments: one medium and one large. You can honestly fit an iPad inside the large compartment, that’s how big it is! It sure is a great bag! I have a new favorite crossbody!”

  6. Meredith Nichols says:

    I think it would be marvelous because it looks like a grab and go kind of bag.. Stylish and easy to wear… and able to take everywhere

  7. Kay says:

    How cute! This would be perfect for a day of shopping since your hands are free while carrying it.

  8. Christy B says:

    I love this size and it’s super cute!!

  9. Melinda says:

    This one is a MUST, it’s the perfect size that I need! I’ve very excited.

  10. Alexa Edwards says:

    I love the crossbody purses from Vera Bradley. I’ve gotten the hipster, the saddle-up, and my friend bought me the mini-hipster for my birthday. The messenger, however, looks like it would be the perfect bag- a little bigger than the hipster! I haven’t had the opportunity to buy one yet, but it is definitely on my list of must-haves!

  11. Jordan says:

    It would be great for me when I am watching my nephew and need my hands free.

  12. Alexa Edwards says:

    mailbag*

  13. Donna Asher says:

    It would be great when I travel as I could use it to store, my kindle, ipad and whatever else I wanted on the plane and handy.

  14. Megan says:

    This bag is absolutely adorable!! I am a huge fan of the cross body bags with an adjustable strap and the fact that it has a perfect fit for your ipad, makes the bag even better! I definitely will be getting one!

  15. Denise preece says:

    Love it for iPad

  16. Alyssa H says:

    This is so cute! Love it! Perfect for going to the movies or out to lunch! I could even use it to carry as I walk along the boardwalk! πŸ™‚ Definitely going to be on my wish list this year!

  17. Kayla McWaters says:

    I am in LOVE with this bag!!!! I couldn’t imagine a better purse. I have the regular hipster in a ton of colors. This mail bag is great for day to day use and even better when traveling!!! My best friend has one and I’m totally jealous!!!!!! It holds just the right amount of stuff and doesn’t weigh shoulders down. Most cross body bags look big and stuffed once you put everything inside. Not this one!!! It’s amazing & i hope to get my own in more than one color!!!! Also would love to have a mail bag because it’s the bigger and better version of the hipster which is my all time favorite! I love Vera Bradley!!!! Completely obsessed.

  18. Mary Kate says:

    This bag is super trendy and chic and perfect for my teaching needs! I am a student in college studying to be a music teacher and I have been looking for the perfect bag to put all my things in to teach my private lessons and something to take all my supplies to observations for. I love these cross body bags because they are hands free so I can carry my instruments and whatever else I need. I would certainly get compliments with this bag for being a cool and in style teacher!

  19. Lauren says:

    I always carried a large purse but when I went to college it was hard to lug around a heavy backpack and a purse at the same time. This mailbag would be the perfect combination of roomy bag and crossbody comfort/convenience! The perfect edition to my dorm room Vera πŸ™‚

  20. Hannah says:

    This bag would be great for traveling. I can fit my iPad, my wallet, a small cosmetic and everything else I need for the day. The bag is made for me and is beautiful!!!!

  21. mbethsiegel says:

    Very cute for travel!

  22. crystalcl3 says:

    I would love to have a mailbag because, I’m always on the go win my son who has Autism. So I need my hands free to help him. And I have to carry so many things in my purse, so the mailbag would help out with that. Having all the compartments and just the right size. Plus I have to take my son’s tablet so he can play while we are gone., and now I would have somewhere to put his things and keep mine completely seperate. Because he is to old for a diaper bag and this would let me just carry one bag instead of three or four. That would be AWESOME!!!

  23. Lydia S. says:

    I have the older version of the mailbag and I got highly frustrated with the long front flap and the lack of space in the interior . The new version looks like a HUGE improvement from the older version ! I need a crossbody bag that can carry the basic necessities and plus a little extra . I saw this in my local store yesterday and I didn’t buy it …. But hopefully I will soon πŸ™‚

  24. I like to carry my Kindle Fire along with my current knitting project and wallet/etc. I think this bag would be perfect for it all!

  25. I think this would be great for a busy mom on the go, free up my hands!

  26. Danae says:

    Love, love, love…want, want, want!!

  27. Monica D. says:

    This bag would be perfect for my iPad! Thanks for the opportunity to try it for myself! πŸ™‚

    To hook me up!!

    This is it! The perfect bag! It’s next on my list to buy…or maybe someone would be nice and get it for me for my birthday!

  30. Kim Wennmacher says:

    The mailbag has an extra long strap so it sits on the hip perfectly. It’s got plenty of room to hold my ipad which makes it a necessary bag for everyday. I would love to win one. I’m addicted to Vera Bradley! πŸ™‚

  31. Manisha says:

    I absolutely love this bag and the design. Just bought a new Mac, so this could be the perfect size for it to fit into! Not to mention how wonderfully stylish, durable, and easy to clean Vera Bradley bags are. I cannot wait to see one of these in person! πŸ™‚

  32. Kate says:

    I use my Hipster all the time and love it, but the mailbag’s bigger size would be perfect for going to class!

    Finally! A bag that can be hands-free, be my purse and hold my iPad. I think I am going to NEED this πŸ™‚

  44. I’ve been searching for the perfect iPad bag for over two years now. I’ve purchased Fossil, Ogio and other off named bags. I still fall back on my Villagers every day because I carry my iPad and other little bags with art supplies, with me all the time. The newly styled Mailbag seems perfect for what I need!

  45. Elle Smith says:

    This is the perfect bag for iPad’s, Nooks, Kindles & tablets – provides protection for the gadgets with the style of a cute purse… great job Vera Bradley!!

  46. Diane Rydecki says:

    I am a new Vera lover… and have quite a few small pieces (in doodle daisy) and some luggage ( in mocha rouge), but no purse/handbag yet. Sounds like this would be the perfect first Vera purse for me and my busy on the go lifestyle! I would love to try one in a new fall color like indigo pop! πŸ™‚

  47. Jess says:

    This would be a marvelous everyday work bag because I can fit everything I need in it and find it quickly. I love the great organization available in Vera Bradley bags.

  61. Erika says:

    Perfect bag!!!!

  62. Mel says:

    Would love to try a crossbody bag and the Mailbag seems to have it all!

  64. Ann H says:

  65. Elizabeth May says:

    I was so upset when this bag was ended, then the fact that it was reinstated makes me one happy girl! I wasn’t able to get it the first time, but as a senior in college it would be perfect for me to have since I don’t have to carry much anymore! Sweet deal Vera, you just made my day!

  66. Lauren says:

    Looks like a great sized bag! and super cute!

  70. MoriahN says:

    I already have the hipster, but I would love to try this bag! It has a very unique look, and tons of compartments, which I love! I think it would be a great addition to my VB collection! : )

  71. Susan says:

    Perfect size and crossbody too. Love it!!!!

  72. Mindy says:

    This would be perfect to take on an airplane and vacation!!!

  73. Ash M says:

    I’m an Instructional Technology Specialist for two middle schools and I’m always traveling… to help a teacher, to meet with a principal, and even from school to school. The mail bag is the perfect accessory for me to carry iPad and phone so everyone can get in touch with me anywhere!

  74. Luke says:

    My wife loves all things Vera Bradley, but she has had her eye on this style since it was first announced. She loves the crossbody styles and this one would be perfect for her.

  75. Ashley says:

    I have the messenger bag, but this would be the perfect pair to it since it still features the same great crossbody design, but it’s a little more compact than the messanger!

  76. Lisa says:

    I would love a mailbag because it’s so versatile… I’m a new mom who needs all the room she can get for extra wipes, bottles, etc. I’m a teacher and it could carry all the things I need for work. I could also see me wearing it when I’m out because it’s so good looking!

  77. Diane J says:

    It’s a marvelous bag because of it’s proportions and styling. Easy access to things and not bulky.

  78. Sarah P. says:

    My first Vera Bradley was the original mailbag in Imperial Toile, and I sill use it a ton! This updated style has a lot more pockets which would be exceptionally handy. I love crossbody bags like the Hipster and Saddle Up, and this looks like it has the PERFECT amount of space for day to day or even school use! I might just have to buy one only these if I don’t win!
    Thanks for all your amazing products, Vera Bradley! Keep it coming!!!!!

  79. Sarah says:

    What a wonderful step between the Hipster and a Tote! Perfect!

  80. Amanda McNamara says:

    I really love my hipster, but it’s a little too small for everyday use. It sounds like the mailbag would be the perfect solution! And as usual, you have thought of everything, including an adjustable strap and lots of pockets! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  81. kristl says:

    This bag looks adorable.. I have been looking for the perfect bag to varry my iPad I think i may have found a winner.

  82. April says:

    I love this bag! I have been looking for a bag to hold my iPad and more. This is it!

  83. rsupernault says:

    Love it! Seems like the perfect bag. The old mailbag style was my favorite : )

  84. I have the old mailbag, and it is almost the perfect bag. Sounds like the improvements make it *the* perfect bag. I use my mailbag to go to and from college each day. It holds my wallet, keys, water bottle, phone, Macbook Air, and whatever else I need for the day. I love the cross-body, hands-free style. I am a guide dog handler, so one hand is always taken up by my dog’s leash and harness handle, and I hate having the other hand bogged down by a purse. I need a large-ish bag to carry all the day’s supplies for myself and my dog, but I like bags that aren’t bulky. The mailbag sounds like pretty much the perfect solution.

  85. Ashley P. says:

    I’ve always been a hipster/crossbody girl as I’m a college student and always on the go. The new Mailbag design perfectly accommodates all of my needs! Whether you’re running to class, the store, shopping, traveling, or on an outing, there’s not a day that this bag wouldn’t have enough space for you! It fits slim to the body (even when full), but it doesn’t look bulky on my small frame. Like previous people have commented, it is perfect for carrying an iPad (even in my Vera Bradley case). Vera Bradley really listened to everyone’s comments and concerns on updating the Mailbag and I think y’all really did an amazing job. I will be purchasing this is many colors and also as gifts for friends and family. The function and design of this is timeless and ageless. Thanks again Vera Bradley!!

  86. Jenny says:

    The new mailbag would be perfect because it’s roomy (would fit my iPad) and the strap is adjustable! Love that. I use my hipster all the time, but sometimes need something a bit more roomy!

  87. Angela says:

    Right now, I use a Quick Draw in twirly birds navy, which I LOVE to use when going shopping and just out with friends, but I really need something that can fit an iPad, a notebook, and a pencil bag without looking too bulky, and I think the mailbag would be PERFECT. I definitely want one for my birthday!! And ps, I ❀ Indigo Pop.

  88. Pamela G says:

    This new bag looks perfect. I love the Hipster and was wanting a new one for my birthday but this looks like a bigger and better version. I love it!

  90. Christine W says:

    I would love a new bag! My birthday is in just a couple weeks!

  91. Lara G says:

    I LOVE my Hipster bag and this would be the perfect sister to it! Sometimes I have too many things to carry that make my Hipster bulge and not sit very well on my side, so this would be a great bag to solve that issue. The crossbody strap is so convenient! Definitely asking for this as a Christmas gift.

  92. Denise says:

    Adjustable, perfect-width strap (with silver buckle!), fits my tablet and everything else I carry, and doesn’t look big & bulky! Adding to my list of marvelous must-haves from Vera Bradley!

  93. Sarah G says:

    Love the new design. I was a huge fan of the old mailbag as well, but I think Vera Bradley deserves the gold medal for this one πŸ˜‰

  94. Sonya says:

    I would love to have a mailbag so pick me! I saw it in the store and I love the size for a cross body bag. I love my hipster but when I need something larger this is perfect!

  99. Elizabeth says:

    I love crossbody bags and sometimes I like to carry a lot so this would be perfect! Such a cute bag!

  102. Serene says:

    I think this style is even better than marvelous! I’m the type of girl who loves the cross body purse and anything that can carry my reading books, keys, pencils/pens and small school items, everything except the kitchen sink! I need this!

    I’d love to have this bag! Great size and organization and has all the features I could want!

  118. Sparky says:

    I love the flexibility of the crossbody style. I have an old-style vintage VB mailbag and would love to try the new one! Actually one of my favorite things is comparing some of my older VB items to the newer ones. I have three different types of Villager and three different styles of the Hipster!

    I am a big fan of the Hipster (and have five of them) and there are times I wish it was a little bigger so I could put my reader or a magazine without having to take an additional bag. This redesigned mailbag should be the size I need!

  138. adria says:

    This bag looks awesome!! I love the cross body action. Perfect for any occasion! I always feel organized and confident in my Vera bags!

  139. Misti Logsdon says:

    I love this bag. I totally want it!

  140. Caroline says:

    I love the redesign of the Mailbag. Can’t wait to get one, now should it be in Paieley meets Plaid or Indigo Pop???

  141. Leiden Reitz says:

    This bag would be PERFECT! to carry my stuff and my twin toddlers’ stuff without carrying a big bag. Plus the crossbody style is a most!

  142. Renee Stillings says:

    As a busy wife, mother of three and teacher this bag would absolutely rock!!! Love the style.

  143. Karyn Trent says:

    I have been looking for the perfect bag for my iPad and to carry to school. Love this style.

  144. I always need a good bag in first grade! I’m on the go with 27 little ones! This bag happens to be functional and cute! I love the pink pattern and how it is adjustable. Thanks for the chance.

  145. Deezee says:

    I love the restyled mailbag! The truth is, Vera Bradley bags fit so nicely on women’s hips without “sticking out” and this bag will look great as I run around on my busy days. I love its ability to give me fast access to my iPad — it’s like a briefcase! I love its other ability to function as a purse with all its pockets! And most of all, I love how good I will look wearing it. : )

  146. Jenna M. says:

    Like many others, I’ve been looking for the perfect bag to carry my iPad and other school supplies in. It looks like the new Mailbag is the perfect bag for the job!! I love the redesign! It’s safe to say, that the Mailbag will be one of my next purchases. And as always, Vera Bradley makes the school year (and every other season) much more fun! πŸ™‚

  147. Jenn K. says:

    I love the Hipster for travel, so I think the bigger Mailbag would be perfect for carrying everyday. I’d love to be hands free while shopping.

  148. jeannine s says:

    I love it! I think this would be great for traveling and running out with the kids

  149. Sarah Olson says:

    Looks like something I wouldn’t mind taking to school each and every day! I’m certainly looking for something new for the Fall! Love the colors!!!

  150. Brandi S says:

    I would love to have one. Love the updated look.

  151. Keira says:

    I would love to win this bag! I am looking for something for my iPad! This sounds great!!!

  152. Helen says:

    Hi! II would love to be able to try this and write my own review! This bag has all of the features I look for …shoulder strap bec I teach and need to sling it back to carry all of my stuff, a place for my beloved iPad, and compartments to organize my stuff! Plus, it is spunky! I love purses, they are some of my best friends as they stick with me day in and day out! I would love to get to know the new Mailbag!

  153. lucia portalatin says:

    Perfect bag when traveling with my grandson.

  154. Kim W. says:

    The mailbag is awesome. I would love to win one! Perfect & big enough for my iPad and all my other stuff. Plus very modern and pretty.

  155. Laurie says:

    The mailbag would be perfect for the school year. As a teacher and grandmother, I will be taking care of my granddaughter after school. The mailbag would carry books, clothes and snacks for my granddaughter.

  156. Barbara K. says:

    I love everything out it. Who wouldn’t want a cute bag to carry their iPad in! The adjustable shoulder strap makes it even more perfect! Soft and the the way you can organize stuff is a definite plus!

  157. Rhonda P. says:

    Looks like the perfect size for everything that a teacher carries on a daily basis! Love the print!

  158. Tammy says:

    I would so love to try it. Would also love to get one for my daughter who is a brand new mommy.

  159. Christine Brandman says:

    I think the new Mailbag would be marvelous because it can hold my iPad along with all my daily needed items. I love that has a long strap to wear as a crossbody bag. It would definitely come in handy on trips to New York City from Long Island. Love it! Love it! Love it!

  160. saxtonsix says:

    Love this bag!

  161. Robin F. says:

    The mailbag seems to be fabulous for me. I have been looking for a convenient way to carry my iPad when I want to show friends, co-workers or my students pictures and videos of my adorable grandson!! Thanks Vera Bradley!!

  162. rlwinter2012 says:

    The mailbag is just perfect. This will be my last year of teaching. It would be great to go out in style. It would be perfect for my iPad as I document my last year.

  163. Amie says:

    Getting an iPad, this will be the perfect bag!

  164. Ann Turner says:

    The Mailbag is perfect for a teacher..hands free for other things is a valuable asset. Also Love the idea of being a little “cool”, because these little girls all know Vera Bradley! I love your support for Breast Cancer awareness.

  165. Malynda says:

    This looks like a stylish way to carry around my Nook and essentials, or, all the mommy and teacher things I need!

  166. Meghan C says:

    It’d be perfect for me! It would come in handy for college when carrying around an ipad and smaller books in a big backpack just won’t do!

  167. Delene Carey says:

    I LOVE the mailbag. It would be great to carry my ipad back and forth to my second grade class. My husband’s a mailman. I think that’s a sign. :o)

  168. I just got a Mailbag for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I have to say that this bag is PERFECT for me! I LOVE crossbody bags because with 2 kids my hands are always full, but the Hipsters are too small and the QuickDraw are too big. I was so excited when I saw this bag and so far I am in love!

  169. Rebecca S says:

    This would be so much cooler than the bag I am planning on buying for my back to school bag! I love to have the coolest teacher bag around and this would definitely make it that way again!

  170. Sharon Henderson says:

    I’m a teacher and it would be great to have something cute to tote work back and forth from school. I love it!

  171. Shirley says:

    This would be great for travel! I usually use the VB backpack on trips but this is a great option to keep your hands free!

  172. Pam says:

    Cross-body but just a little bigger than the hipster — You had me at “hello”!

  173. Lisa says:

    Looks like a great vacation bag. I love the crossbody style.

  174. Hi! I am an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I teach 2-5 year old children with special needs…who cannot be defined by their disabilities. This is a bag I would truly love, but honestly could never afford. My school distract has not been in a position to give teachers a raise in the past 5 years…I do this job because I love it. Any extra money I have usually goes back into the classroom. I don’t know if you know this, but teachers love bags!!! We are constantly carrying things back and forth from school to home and back again. I love the adjustable strap because I can throw it around my neck and go…even if I am holding a child’s hand or I’m carrying a dozen cupcakes for one of my student’s birthdays. I would love a chance to win this stylish Vera Wang bag.

  176. Colleen F says:

    My iPad is begging you to choose me to win one! It is getting a bit roughed up hanging out in my schoolbag with everything else. It wants a warm, cozy comfortable place to call its own!

  177. Amy O'Connor says:

    This would be perfect for the traveler (me) or for mom-on-the-go (my sister)! It is adorable! I don’t have a VB crossbody yet and would love to have this one!

  178. JoDee Rolfe says:

    A new Mailbag would be marvelous because I am going to be a new (and first-time) mom in about 8 weeks, and I will have a lot of extra stuff to carry around with diaper bag, car seat, etc. So, the cross-over hands-free style of this bag would be perfect for my new fall purse!! Pick me, pick me!!

  179. Jaime T. says:

    This would be great to hold an ipad along with other items all in one great and not to mention pretty bag!

  180. Courtney says:

    My son says I need the mailbag so that he can play Mail. Lol. πŸ™‚

    I love love the hipster and so this bag is a little bit bigger and maybe it allow me to quit carrying the ‘diaper bag’ for my toddler who is getting older and be able to add a few of his things with me!

  181. Carly Roark says:

    The new Mailbag sounds awesome! It seems perfect for carrying around everything, including an iPad, all while being hands-free. Love it!

  182. Dana says:

    Love the mailbag. It would be perfect for my daughter to take her ipad to school.

  183. Peggy Paulson says:

    As a teacher I take my iPad back and forth to school EVERYDAY! Not only would this be a convenient way to carry it – I would look awesome and all the teachers with iPads would be jealous. Of course I would tell them where they could get one…. LOL
    Thanks for the chance to WIN!!

  184. Emily Harns says:

    The mailbag sounds marvelous! I would absolutely LOVE it! It would be the perfect home for my new ipad. I love Vera cross body bags, because hands-free shopping is so convenient! I think the pockets and separate compartments on the new mailbag are the perfect features for a girl like me who carries a lot around. It would look very cute and professional in Camellia!

  185. Amy Thompson says:

    I think a new Mailbag would be marvelous! I use the hipster now, but when I want to throw in a diaper and wipes for my toddler (so I can avoid bringing a diaper bag on short trips) it gets a bit too full. Sounds like this would be the perfect solution to that problem!

  186. Deidre says:

    A new Mailbag would give me an excuse to buy an iPad! Pick me! πŸ™‚

  187. allison says:

    I love this mail bag it would be so perfect for all of my school supplise and it would make a great travel bag for sleep overs at my friends house it has lots of room witch is great beacuse I have a lot of stuff.

  188. scrapperdeb says:

    Being slightly out of the techno world of Ipads, I would use the Mailbag for my colorful quilted notebook which i take with me and use for notations. This bag would be perfect for it!

  189. pam meeks says:

    Love the look of the new mailbag – great design, practical and stylin’

  190. GINA says:

    I think this would be great because for people like me that like bigger bags but also like to be hands free this is my perfect match. if I want I can slip in my ipad. I love that feature.

  191. Rebecca says:

    I love crossbody bags, so this looks perfect. πŸ™‚

  192. Elizabeth says:

    As my littlest is about to turn one, I’m faced with the prospect if chasing TWO toddlers! I think this would be perfect on days I don’t want to carry my big backpack, but still need hands free!

  193. Haley says:

    Finally vera bradley has come out with a larger crossbody bag!!! I think this would be great for air travel because I love to be hands free in the airport but my hipster was always just a little small. Plus since I don’t have an pad, I can slip my nook in the front instead!!

  194. Irasema Saldana says:

    I loved this style before. When it went away I was disappointed. Then
    I was super excited when it came back! Ordered it for
    my daughter who is heading off to college. Will hopefully be
    able to order myself one soon! We will be sending 3 to college this year
    so I may have to wait a bit! Thanks Vera for bringing this style back!!!

  195. Brenda says:

    I love this bag it is my new favorite bag from Vera. I use to carry the hipster and it was not big enough and a tote was too big and did not cross over. The old mail bag the flap was too big and you hit yourself in the face when you opened it. This bag has lots of pockets holds a I pad is big but not too big and crosses over like the hipster. Love this bag. Thank you Vera.

  196. Madeline D. says:

    I would love a mailbag because it would be perfect for carrying school supplies, books, or an iPad when my hipster is too small. It is such a functional bag!!!

  197. Kim M. says:

    I LOVE this bag. It will be perfect for vacations and carrying our Ipad. I’m looking forward to taking it to the Tupperware convention this month!

  198. Lizzette Merrifield says:

    The “Mailbag” is perfect, I love the fact that it is crossbody, and a roomier alternative to the great “Hipster”. The fact that an iPad fits is great, however my Nook tablet fits just perfect too. Thank you!!

  199. scrapbkliz says:

  200. Helen says:

    Sure, you can use the Mailbag for different things, but the first thing that comes to my mind is for carrying mail. Seriously, when I go to the mailbox, it’s STUFFED with stuff. I get tons of magazines, and the Vera Mailbag is the perfect size to hold my mags and other everyday necessities. It’s also great because it has separate compartments for things like outgoing mail, incoming mail that’s important, and incoming junk mail. I usually get the mail when I’m on the way out, or coming home from somewhere. So this bag is idea for outings AND mail (hence the name).

  201. Kas says:

    It would be perfect for air travel … roomy without the hassle of bulky !

  202. So cute! I wish I could have one in every color! I like this Mailbag and the Hipster for traveling with my iPad.

  203. Chris says:

    Yet again an amazing thing has happened in Vera Bradley world!! I think the mailbag would be perfect for school. There is so much room, and it is very to carry with to every class. But of course it is fabulous!! It is also perfect for a night at a friends house, so simple!

  204. Jamie A. says:

    I love that VB got rid of the huge cumbersome flap for a more sleek design. The fact that they redesigned the bag to include a spot specifically to fit the iPad. I carry my iPad all over and I like that it will have a secure spot for it! Add in the adjustable crossbody strap and it’s a must have!

  205. Liza says:

    This would be a great bag for shopping or travel.

  206. Kimberli says:

    What an adorable bag!! I’m a busy, working mom of 2 toddlers, so this would be perfect to throw on and go! The crossbody style is perfect for not having to worry about it falling off my shoulder if I need to scoop up one of my boys – love it! Thanks for the chance to win!

  207. stephanie says:

    I LOVE all of your bags! This one is the PERFECT size! I am a teacher of 30 2nd graders and a mom to 4 and I have always had a vera that meets my needs! I love the long strap and love that it can fit an ipad! I also love all the slots you always put on the inside to help keep things organized! Fingers crossed for one of these! I LOVE my veras!!!!

  208. Jamie Beck says:

    The mailbag would make an awesome bag to carry on campus. I have a hipster but I think the mailbag would give me more room for all of my essentials. I would LOVE to win one!!!

  209. Aurora Zeledon says:

    I live near the beach and like to hike out among the cliffs. The mailbag would be perfect to hold books to take with me, as well as snacks, sunglasses, etc.!

  210. dotmoody says:

    I was just looking at this bag yesterday at the Pittsburgh Store! I must say, it sure does have plenty of room, I LOVE the front flap and slip pockets, the interior is pretty large, after you fill it with books & folders you will still have room for your personal items. This bag is perfect for every student and business woman. I told my husband I want an Ipad just so I can get this bag to carry it in “LOL”

  211. I am looking for a new bag, the mailbag might be it!!! I would like to try it out! Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to carry my purse by the handles!!! I hope I win one!!!

  212. Celyna says:

    Who doesn’t love a revisit? Especially when the new and improved version is so fabulous?!

  213. Jenn says:

    I’m going to Disney World for my honeymoon, and this bag would be perfect!

  214. Kylie M says:

    The mailbag would be the perfect bag to use on a day of light classes. Just enough room to fit my iPad, note paper, and a pen! A great bag for professionals, students, moms, anyone!

  215. millerk14 says:

    The mailbag is the perfect back-to-school addition! It is just the bag for a day of light classes. Slide in your iPad, some note paper, and a pen and you are all set! Definitely a bag I must have to return to college – but would be an amazing addition for moms, professionals. . . anyone!

  216. Ky says:

    A great, revamped version of an amazing bag! Can’t wait to get my hands on one!

  217. krm0115 says:

    Ohh! So excited about this newly redone addition to the Vera family. This looks like a great bag for people of all ages!

  218. Amy says:

    LOVE the updates to this bag! Move over, Carnaby Mailbag…you need a new colorful friend!

  219. Tara S. says:

    I love all the updates! The new mailbag would be a great everyday bag for me. I carry a lot in my bag so I need plenty of space and organization, and that’s exactly what the mailbag provides. love it!

  220. Rachel says:

    Oh ym gosh. This is the perfect bag fo school. It can hold my ipad and all my books, i need this bag.

  221. Tashiana Tselikis says:

    I would love to win this bag! I’ve been a Vera fan for over 15 years & the new mailbag is something I’ve been dying to add to my collection. It would add the perfect pop of color to my new 2013 Kia soul car I just purchased one week ago. Got to be colorful where ever you go!!! Pick me!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  222. Denise Beisel says:

    I have carried the “On the Go” crossbody bag for years. I think I have 5 different colors. But now I am hooked on my ipad and when I saw the description of the new Mailbag, I thought it should be the next addition to my Vera collection. I looked at it in person at the Vera Bradley store in the Denver area and hope to someday own one. The reviews I have read make it sound like the Vera designers have a winner in this bag. I would love to have one — Indigo Pop is my favorite of the new colors!

  223. Stacey says:

    What a cute bag! I am a 1st grade teacher and the bag would be perfect for back to school! I would love to have the chance to win one!

  224. Ashley A. says:

    I love this bag. I was looking for a new bag to hold my iPad and other things for a daily bag. This bag would be perfect! I love how Vera Bradley thinks of everything!

  225. Debbie says:

    I have been looking for the perfect crossbody bag. May have just found it in the new Mailbag. I like that it has a lot of room and keeps things organized. I also like the flap on the front.

  226. Fran Tretera says:

    I’ve been having shoulder problems and am planning on buying a crossbody to eliviate the strain. Great that there is a special place for my Ipod.

  227. Karen C. says:

    I think this is a marvelous bag because of the multiple compartments that offer more storage than other crossbody bags. Also, it is not too small, but too big so that it would be annoying to carry around for sight-seeing or even everyday use! Looks beautiful in Indigo Pop!

  228. Danielle says:

    This is a fantastic bag because it’s hands free, has so many pockets, I think it’d be great for travel or a personal item on a plane for someone who is only carrying an iPad and not a laptop. It’s roomy and the front pocket is a great addition, it’s nice to know my iPad will be safe. Paisley Meets Plaid is a great fun color!

  229. Ashley P. says:

    I’ve always been a hipster/crossbody girl as I’m a college student and always on the go. The new Mailbag design perfectly accommodates all of my needs! Whether you’re running to class, the store, shopping, traveling, or on an outing, there’s not a day that this bag wouldn’t have enough space for you! It fits slim to the body (even when full), but it doesn’t look bulky on my small frame. Like previous people have commented, it is perfect for carrying an iPad (even in my Vera Bradley case). Vera Bradley really listened to everyone’s comments and concerns on updating the Mailbag and I think y’all really did an amazing job. I will be purchasing this is many colors and also as gifts for friends and family. The function and design of this is timeless and ageless. Thanks again Vera Bradley!!

  230. Clarissa Litzenberger says:

    This bag is great! Just the right size-bigger than the hipster, but not too big and bulky! I need the new mailbag! ❀

  231. ingrid obrien says:

    Great bag would be ideal for my trip to Germany!!!!

  232. -- SB says:

    A bigger crossbody bag is certainly a big advantage for back to school!

  233. marlys bridgeman says:

    love the colors, the design is great, cross body is always a handy must bag for any outing. would love this for my daughter,<3

  234. Carla says:

    Omg. This looks fantastic! My teen that starts college this month would absolutely love this bag !

  235. Becky Wishart says:

    A new style for me to love because it is Vera Bradley and because it will hold everything I need to carry with me.

  236. Megan says:

    This bag would be a perfect bag to carry things in!! I LOVE cross bodies and the messenger seems AWESOME!!

  237. Martha Lowry says:

    I love the new mailbag! My local VB store’s manager suggested it to me as I needed a bag to carry my Nook where ever I go. I had everything literally shoved into a Hipster and it was bulging at the seams! I am so glad she pointed it out. I got one in Indigo Pop and would love another one so I can switch things up. It is a great crossbody bag and I highly recommend it if you have more stuff than a Hipster will easily hold!

  238. brandi says:

    WHO WOULD NOT LOVE THIS BAG!!!!!!!!!!! this is awsome!!!!! ❀ πŸ˜‰ ❀ πŸ™‚ ❀ πŸ™‚ ❀ πŸ˜‰

  239. Cassie Block says:

    I think that this bag will be perfect because the design is pretty and it looks supportive and it will be easy to carry!
