      This is the Best from Vera Bradley! The extra compartment is awesome! has lots of room which is great for middle school and above. The straps are very adjustable! Is water proof & is good for a person who carry's water bottles! The smaller pockets are great for extra goodies! Is very cute love all the prints! Handle is good for carrying this backpack! Is quality and don't see wear and tear like normal backpacks! If you need storage, extras and quality this is for you! I'd give it 5 stars! Awesome backpack! P.S. (I didn't get the monogram.) But in the preview you can't even see the lettering so there is no point of getting the monogram. In the I.D. window there is a little piece of paper so just write your name there! I hoped this helped! -Nanz.

      I just purchased this as I need a large backpack when I'm back on campus finishing my degree after having my baby. I need to carry my breast pump and supplies as well as a cooler bag for milk and also a lunch and books & laptop. Because of the two separate functions I needed (school bag and pump bag) I LOVED that there were two separate compartments. They're roomy and spacious and hold everything I need (which is a lot), although the bag becomes quite heavy and the tech backpack's straps are definitely more padded. My main concern is the quality though. There isn't really any interior fabric on much of the bag, you just see the underside of the exterior fabric. Parts of it aren't trimmed out how I'm used to seeing Vera bags, there are just loose hems exposed in the bag. Loose threads jut out everywhere. I'm concerned about it not being machine washable, this type of material shows water spots when wiped. So honestly even though it's extra large and roomy enough for my needs I just don't think it will hold up and isn't the quality I'm used to from Vera Bradley. I really want to love it but may end up returning it and getting a different backpack or even a get carried away tote or something large enough for my needs.

      Exceeded expectations

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Large Backpack:

      Very impressed with product, monogramming, and especially beautiful packaging with gift box. Very unusual for any company to put that kind of care and quality into packaging. I order from a lot of online retailers. Will definitely order from VB again based on this level of commitment to excellence. Thank you!

      Did not last

      I purchased this back pack in a different pattern for my daughter right before school started this year. It is now the beginning of the 3rd 6 weeks, I have had to take the back pack to my local alteration place and had to have the straps re-sewn, which was no big deal because I had to do the same thing to her VB backpack last year. Due to the books being heavy. But not only did they rip again now the back pack has holes in more places. My daughter is very disappointed as am I, that now we have to get her a new backpack this early in the year. I will not purchase another VB backpack. She loves VB products. Now it's time to move on.

      I have MANY Vera Bradley bags. I was disappointed in the pattern in the lighten up backpack. Maybe I'm just use to my bright patterns.

      great backpack, but disappointed the one I purchased did not have a trolley sleeve to use with wheeled luggage - perhaps that was because it was a discontinued pattern? If it had the trolley sleeve, I'd have rated it 5 stars

      Great for college

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Large Backpack:

      This backpack has a great layout of sections for all of my college stuff. To give an idea of the size....I put textbooks and laptop in the largest compartment, and my iClicker in the little zipper compartment in there. Next compartment has chargers, snacks, etc. The front compartment has 2 parts; one can fit a planner and has sections for writing utensils, and the front zipper is where i keep my phone and keys. It's perfect. And I love the two side pockets for an umbrella and a water bottle. The water resistance is an awesome feature for walking around campus, too. My only complaint with it is that the zippers have cover flaps, which makes it annoying to zip and unzip because they get in the way and zippers get stuck on them.

      We purchased this back pack so far its been a great back pack except for the little plastic covers that go on the zippers they tear easily so far we have had our back pack for 3 mo and 2 of the plastic covers for the zippers are splitting open love the back pack except for that they need to come up with something else besides plastic coverings.

      Great for Middle School, Not High School

      By 

      from Appleton, WI

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Large Backpack:

      I bought this backpack last summer, and used it all school year for 8th grade. I loved it, and it fit everything I needed. I decided to use it again this year because it was still in really good shape and not ripping or anything. I carry a lot more stuff in high school, and the bag gets super heavy. Also, it tore on the bottom of one of the water bottle compartments, and now I can't use that side. Overall, I think it's a good backpack for middle school, but just not big enough/durable enough for high school.

      My 12 year old daughter loves her backpack but in less than one month of school the shoulder strap is tearing. So disappointed!
