      I have thought about buying this backpack since it came out in the fall, but I wasn't in love with any of the colors. So, when the magenta came out, I ran to the store to see if it was everything I had hoped...and it was! Yes, this is an expensive bag, but it's amazing quality. Pros: Love the quilted leather; big and roomy; beautiful color; lots of pockets. Cons: Only one -- I wish it was a snap (not a magnetic) closure. Uses: Day-to-day and travel. I'm a teacher, so I use it as my work bag. It does fit my Macbook Pro without a cover, and there's lots of room left. I typically put a Vera wallet, a small Vera cosmetics, a pencil case, water bottle, can of pop, and lots of little odds and ends. So, it holds a lot without being too heavy. What I love it even more for though is travel. I didn't realize how great it would be to not have to carry something until I used this for a couple recent trips. Love that! Compliments: Totally! People have stopped me to ask where I got the bag, so lots of compliments for it. All-in-all: love it. Worth the money.

      Make it a zipped, snapped, buttoned, or otherwise secure closure and I'd purchase one in almost every color. I have it in Taupe, very lovely. It's a beautiful, urbane, hands-free bag, but it opens when you least want it to, because the magnet closure is too fallible. I don't overload the bag with stuff, but even so, it opens. When I sling it over my shoulder it often opens up looking junky and cheap and revealing my contents within. If it falls off a chair or car seat, everything tumbles out. I use a VB cosmetic case as a purse organizer, which is the only thing that secures the contents of this backpack. But even then the top of the backpack opens by itself, revealing the cosmetic case within. It's a design flaw.

      Get a Different Closure

      By 

      from New Mexico

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      I agree with others who are uncomfortable with the magnetic closure. I own another VB backpack with a latch, and I feel it is not nearly so vulnerable to opening up or someone reaching inside when on the back of a chair. But it IS beautiful and I love the leather!

      Great backpack but...

      By

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      this needs a better closing mechanism. As other reviewers have stated, and I do agree, the magnetic closure is not very good at remaining closed. I received my bag for Mother's Day 2015, and I've used this as my primary bag. I'm on the go with work, kids' activities, etc., so I need a bag that can hold my stuff and to perform, and this fails the performance test by not remaining closed. I've been in the grocery store, and I've had my phone 6 plus to just fall out. The possibility of my backpack to be open at any moment is more often than not. I have swapped bags out prior to going to certain places because I knew that I wanted a bag that would remain closed at all times. Unfortunately, this backpack is not it. From this point forward, any bag or backpack that I purchase must have either a zip closure or a snap closure. This is a beautiful backpack, but when looking at beauty combined with functionality, it's best to ask yourself which is more important.

      My favorite purse

      By 

      from Dallas, Texas

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      I received this purse as a birthday gift and have carried it most everyday since February of this year. It has only gotten softer with use. I love this bag and would love to own a few more colors. I have it in taupe and I think it is very versatile. I have had no issues with the magnetic closure or scratches to the material; this is a well made bag. Please continue to make this one in more colors!

      Not as I had hoped!

      By 

      from Rochester, MI

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      This needs another space to hold a tablet. I am disappointed in the overall use/ability/straps. Very expensive for what looks like a faux fabric. I should have returned but disability would not allow that. Unusual not to be 'IN LOVE' with a Vera Product.

      Perfect for so many things!

      By 

      from Indiana

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      I am in love with this backpack! It is a wee bit pricey but it is amazing! The size is perfect for pretty much everything! I took it to church and put a couple diapers, wipes and my stuff (huge VB sunglasses case, VB On the Square wristlet, hand lotion and germ killer) in it and it was still light and perfect. The material feels soooo soft and such great quality. I have very teeny shoulders and it fits perfectly on the smallest size on the straps. I want one of these in every color now!

      Beautiful, but doesn't stay closed

      By 

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      Beautiful soft leather and wonderful quality. My only issue is that the magnetic closure doesn't stay closed even if the bag isn't stuffed and I am afraid of something falling out and getting lost! I wish they had used a different style of magnetic closure (brass one that snaps in) instead. Any suggestions on how to keep it closed? I pull the drawstring as tight as possible, but there is still a risk of losing something.

      A lot better then expected....

      By 

      from Anthem,AZ

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      So I ordered this simply because I have so many cotton Vera Bradley products it was time to move up a class and make a practical decision to purchase this leather backpack....best choice I ever made. It's very reasonably priced for how much you are actually getting!!!! It has five pockets and they all are ACTUAL pockets, so none of them are sewn in for decoration!!!! All my basic needs all have their own space for easy access, my Chapstick in one of the outside pockets, and my phone in the hidden one (it fits both an iPhone 6 and 6 plus without sticking out. So there is just enough room without squeezing your phone) There's also a pocket for my charger, my money, sunglasses, brush, a full sized water bottle, etc. The straps are also very adjustable to fit anyone, I'm 5'4 so I use the smallest setting and it fits perfectly...not to snug but not to loose. I sometimes even carry it with the top strap on my wrist and it looks really good!!! It might be a little to big to carry as a purse...it's more for a day trip where you need to bring a little more then usual and still look fashionable...but even as a carry on, it would still work. I ordered mine in blush and surprisingly it goes with every single outfit I have, but seriously you need to buy this!!!! I've never been so organized!!!

      Magnetic snap closure is useless

      By 

      from Troy,mi

      Comments about Vera Bradley Amy Quilted Leather Backpack:

      If this bag had any other method of closure (zipper, snap, anything) I wouldn't hesitate to give it 4 or 5 stars. But I do a lot of traveling and the first time wearing this in the airport the other day the snap had (unknowingly) come undone and my phone flew out and dropped to the ground. Then the rest of the trip, while I was walking down crowded streets and crowded subways, my kids would tell me the bag was wide open! You really want to know your valuables are extra secure especially when they are behind your back! Sorry. Design flaw big time. I just don't feel comfortable using it. I felt like I had to keep checking the snap all the time. Which really defeats the purpose of having a carefree backpack. I'm really disappointed because this was a birthday gift from my kids to me and I was really excited to get to use it.
