      I have never purchased a crossbody from Vera before, but I am so happy that I got this one. From the photos you would think that it wouldn't hold that much but it does. It has 3 different compartments w/ each one going all the way to the bottom of the bag. The material is a perfect canvas material that is so easy to keep clean. The strap also extends to a perfect long length which I love because I have never been able to find one to hang on my hip since I am tall, but this one does. Plus the pattern is AWESOME....LOVE THE CAMOFLORAL!!!

      I really wanted to like this bag: it looked to be lightweight (it is), pretty (blue & white pattern is better in picture than in person), a quality piece (surprise! - not quality I expect from VB). Instead, I have a bag looks cheap: the attached Vera Bradley on the outer snap pocket is the only indication it is from a top level company. The interior pockets are 'floppy' - can't tell if design or construction is the problem) and the lining fabric is slippery and cheap feeling. The strap, a solid color synthetic, does not adjust smoothly and is somehow off-kilter in way it attaches as the bag is most uncomfortable to wear. If I liked the bag better, I would be more concerned about how likely it will be to wear and fray, but that is the least of my worries. The zipper for the main compartment does not work properly as it was not attached correctly and I have not been able to close it without a struggle since I first used it. Please go back to making quality bags in useful styles. I find myself carrying a tote because your only well-made handbags are too small to be used on a daily basis. I debated giving only 1 star but gave 2 since I think most of the problems are careless construction, not overall design flaws. This bag is definitely a don't buy, though.

      Perfect cross body

      I needed a cross body that was waterproof and I had to have a good quality purse. My cousin got her daughter one and when I saw it I had to get one. We go to the river and it is always wet on the dock or raining!!! In the past 23 years i have carried the cotton hipsters. They would get soaked.
      The front pocket holds my iPad and a back zipper compartment for my phone. The only downfall is there is not matching accessories. But I did get Vera Bradley zip ID & pencil holder to use as cosmetic case in Cuban Tiles. The blues look great together. One more awesome thing; We have dogs and it doesn't show the dog hair like the cotton ones do. Buy this Lighten up fabric, you will love it.

      Good size, holds a lot without being bulky

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Slim Cross-Body Bag:

      Only issue is zipper is hard to use - just started using this purse so maybe it will get easier. Wish it had a key holder. Pockets are fine for cell phone. Convenient as shoulder bag with strap at its shortest point.

      GREAT BAG FOR EVERYDAY USE!

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Slim Cross-Body Bag:

      Love all the features of this bag! Being a mommy of a six year old, not only do I have to carry my stuff but I have to carry my child's stuff also. So I need a bag that is big enough for all that and isn't too big or bulky and this bag was perfect for all my needs. It's light weight and water-repellent was also a bonus for me. So I have one in camofloral and one in camocat. Now I have my eyes on the havana dots! It

      This bag helps to keep me organized while traveling. There are pockets to keep all travel papers and other necessities handy. Very convenient. Although the bag is not oversized, I found it "just the right size."

      Great slim crossbody

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Slim Cross-Body Bag:

      I took this bag to Disney. It is not bulky and it fit a water bottle and snack. I like that it is in lighten up material and water and sweat resistance. Different compartments make finding things easy. It comes in handy for just slipping your phone in when your hands are full. No need to use the zipper side.

      Super cheap quality!

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Slim Cross-Body Bag:

      I asked my mom to get me this bag for a Christmas gift. When I opened it up I was very disappoint in the quality of this bag. It is not made of the typical, high quality quilted material that most Vera Bradley bags are made of, but instead is made of the same material used to make gym bags... flimsy, and very cheap feeling. I honestly wish that the description would have been more clear. Will probably not order something from the website again, would be a safer bet to just go to the store so I know what I am actually getting.

      Hate this material

      Comments about Vera Bradley Lighten Up Slim Cross-Body Bag:

      This isn't made of cloth like normal VB products. This reminds me of a cheap backpack. Hate this purse and will be returning it.
