Rated 5 out of 5 by CareTed This bag is my life!
I LOVE this bag! I am a dance teacher who spends long hours at the studio- every bag I bought for work I kept out growing and I was turning into a bag lady! I received the "Get carried away tote" in Symphony in Hue as a Christmas gift from my husband and it has solved all of my troubles! I can fit multiple pairs of dance shoes (ballet, jazz, tap), extra layers for the chilly months, my music, cosmetic cases, snacks, my lunch tote, my lesson plan books, and so much more! The outside pockets are great- my water bottles slide right in! I love the inside pockets where I can easily store pens, lotion, my keys, my thera bands, extra CDs, socks, and lots of other things. Everything is easily accessible- plus it can zipper close! It fits my life and I know I will never out grow this bag, thank you VB!!!!!!!!

This is AWESOME for traveling ! Plenty of pockets and so spacious. Used this when our family of 4 traveled by plane, this was my carry on ! PERFECT ! I was able to pack snacks, a blanket, magazines, my wallet, travel pillow.... And plenty of room leftover ! The straps are wide and comfortable. The breakaway zipper made it nice to leave open when everyone was reaching in to get their things and to zip closed, when walking through the airport and when stored under the airplane seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eml6824 Versatile! (Grad student, teacher, traveler)
First of all, I have quite the reputation for carrying around large purses because I have so much stuff. This bag rocks! I am a graduate student and I am able to fit several textbooks, binders, wallet, makeup bag, lunchbox, pencil bag, keys, sunglasses, cell phone, calculator, etc. in this tote. It's especially great for days when I am on campus for 8+ hours. As a teacher, I can also fit everything I need for work. I have traveled with this bag and it makes a great carry-on, especially for those who over pack like me. This bag is excellent quality and holds up well under weight. Basically, it can hold as much as you yourself can carry (and are able to lift.) As other reviewers have said, it is quite large. I often get comments such as "That bag is so huge I can fit you in there." (I am a little over 5 feet tall.) I also have received several compliments on the quality of the bag and the aesthetics from both men and women (color: Portobello Road). A friend of mine (she is a grad student, teacher, and mother of 3) loved my bag so much that she bought her own! I would definitely recommend this to anyone has a lot of stuff!
