good organizer but not for plane travel
This is great if you have a lot of travel sized items. if you like to carry full sized bottles like me, this isn't for you. I needed to go somewhere for a month where i had to constantly keep my things easily mobile. i thought this organizer would be great but the truth is, its folds awkwardly and the lack of that design keeps it from being compact. its not meant to hold a lot of bulky items. the design needs to be adjusted. with just a few tweaks this organizer can be much better. the medium hanging organizer - which i strongly recommend - can hold just almost as much and it folds up way better. here's what i like about it: the concept, the lining and clear compartments, the ones that aren't clear are nice to keep more confidential items, the handles, the zippers, where the hanger is tucked away there is more secret room to put things and the top pocket has multiple slip pockets inside, varying in size. so there are many good things about it, but the size of the compartments need to be re-done so that the bag can become compact therefore making it more functional for travel and fitting it in a carry-on or check in luggage. For now, it is hanging in my room as storage for other small items and unfortunately, it won't be traveling with me.

Great toiletry bag!
I received this amazing organizer in Frutti Tutti for my birthday. I used to have a small little case for toiletries, and I could barely fit anything into it, this is great for sleepovers, vacations, camps, and trips to hotels. LOVE THIS BAG! I plan to get another if this one ever starts to break, which it probably won't, since its great quality.

great for tech gear
I got this in Go Wild for keeping my tech gear organized. I use it for two MacBook chargers, my iPad charger and my iPod charger. I will be using it for my external hard drive as well. There is still plenty of room, and as I just got it...I will see what else I'm going to store in it.
I might get the medium hanging organizer to see if a smaller version works. I also want to see what difference the outside zipper (with the medium size) versus the tie on top makes.

More color options?
I got this for my cousin for her birthday, and she loved it. She liked it so much that I decided I wanted to get one for myself. However, I was very disappointed to find out that the pattern I use (Very Berry Paisley) wasn't an option. I already have a lot of Vera products in that pattern, and having a small case of OCD, I did not want to get something in a different pattern. I am sort of annoyed, but not by much. Still, it would be nice if more patterns were available.

Love it, Love it, Love it
I used the same old gaudy cosmetic bag for 15 years till it fell apart. I looked around often and just couldn't find another bag that fit my needs. Until I checked out this one. I waited till my pattern went 50% off and I feel like I got a tremendous deal. I have 7 travel bottles of misc. items in the bottom compartment. I like to hang it up when traveling, freeing the counter space up. Everything stays nicely zipped in each compartment. The bag is very spacious so it can easily be filled to a point where it becomes to bulky. But you can usually downsize some bottles and it works just fine. At the drop of a hat it is packed and ready to go. I keep all my powder makeup in the v.b essentials cosmetic bag. I would recommend that also.

Love my hanging organizer!
I purchased a hanging organizer a little over a year ago. I travel frequently and it fits nicely in any of my luggage. It has held up well to frequent (almost constant) use. I love mine so much that this was my first recommendation to my daughter when she was pondering what she could buy for her maid-of-honor and bridesmaids as thank-you gifts for her April 2013 wedding. She bought one for each of them, and filled each compartment with something as well...they were a big hit!

Great for dance recitals
first of all, this product is perfect!!!! it is long and has soo many pockets! it folds up to a very convient 12 inches. it fits right inside my large duffel along with a small pillow, blanket, a change of clothes, and a pair of flip flops. thats just for travel! i got this product a couple months ago and used it for my dance recital two weeks ago. it was perfect!! it fit right inside my vera with other stuff. the organizer was perfect to fit all the costume acessories, bobby pins, bun nets, two full size botttles of hair spray, and a full size brush comfortably this product is overall completely perfect and i lookforward to using it in the future!!!! <3

Cute pattern, but functionality disappointing
I loved the pattern, the hanger, the two clear pouches, and the spill-proof lining in the main compartment, but it folds very awkwardly, making it really large and bulky, when it should fold up nice and compact. I found that it takes up too much room in a carry on and the odd shape makes it difficult to store with my travel supplies at home. This bag might work well for 2 people or a family (and for people who have a lot more storage space when not traveling, but this bag needs to be at least 1/3 smaller to make it an ideal hanging toiletry bag for one person and/or functional for shorter trips.

Makes Traveling More Organized
I received the Hanging Organizer for my birthday last year and since then I have used it multiple times. It's different compartments allow lots of products to fit inside with room to spare. I love that I'm able to hang it. This makes it very easy to take it with you when you shower and need all your supplies. The bottom section is slightly larger than the other three which is perfect to store larger things like shaving cream, shampoo, and conditioner bottles. Overall this Hanging Organizer is perfect for any girl that wants to stay organized while traveling. The only thing that I was slightly disappointed about was that when filled to the fullest, the bag get big. Next week, I'm planning to go on a 5-day-long trip and I'm taking my Hanging Organizer along. Definitely one of my favorite Vera Bradley items!
