There seems to be an issue with Vera Bradley updating versions of their bags but sellers DO NOT disclose what version they are selling.
In my case with this bag, there is an older version (the one I received) that does NOT fit the Apple iPad in the front pouch as the description implies. The width is fine but the length of the iPad does not allow for the flap to fully lay and close. If you search around and look at pics, you will see the lengths of the front pouch are different on the same bag. I discovered this too late. So please beware that there are different versions and the seller does not disclose this. I will be returning this bag since it did not fit the iPad Air.
On the bag itself, as others have said, it's on the smaller size which is what I wanted. The pouches on the side are small and I wish they were bigger. Won't hold a water bottle. Also, I thought the material was going to be softer. Kind of like quilt material you buy in fabric stores, but it's more of a rougher canvas feel. Probably not a bad idea though for a backpack. I just assumed different. I still really do like this bag though and will order one that I am sure is the current model.
