Amazing travel bag
This bag is unbelievable. I have been looking for a travel bag that could carry everything, travel well and of course not look like luggage. I finally had a chance to put this bag to the test this week and it did not disappoint. It held winter clothes for a six day trip including two chunky sweaters, a fleece, running gear, three pairs of shoes, all my toiletries and a hairdryer. All in one bag; I can't remember the last time I was able to do that but it's exactly what I had hoped for from this bag. Some of the reviews caution that the bag is so big it can be heavy and unwieldy when full. My bag was very full. I could still comfortably carry it by the handles over my shoulder but I can see how it could be over-packed. We drove, so I'm not sure how it would have held up as carry-on luggage. Overall though, I'm over the moon for this bag. I still can't believe it held every last bit of clothing, accessories and toiletries I needed for a week-long trip. It makes me giddy to think of what I could fill it with for a quick weekend trip. This bag makes me want to travel more just so I can use it. Love.

The Perfect Bag
I got this bag for my 19th birthday and it is honestly the best bag EVER. It holds so much stuff and is perfect for weekend trips, especially when I travel from campus to home on weekends or breaks. The print still looks vibrant and new almost 2 years later and the bottom has held up without any damage, even with wear and tear and not treating it very gently. I love the shoulder strap that comes in handy when my hands are full or the side straps that make it easier to carry when you have a lighter load. This bag is so awesome and I would recommend it to everyone! Just all the compartments alone make this bag worthwhile. IT'S PERFECT!

A quick fix for slip pocket
I love the Grand Traveler and have recently purchased three - one for my daughter that she does not know about yet. In response to concerns that slip pocket may be mistaken for a regular one, I have sewn a full strip of Velcro across the bottom. This makes a bonus pocket for when I am using this alone and not another rolling piece. Hope others find this helpful - super easy to do! I love the current Vera Sales on retired colors.

Grand Traveler...WOULDN'T TRAVEL WITHOUT IT!!!
There are not enough words to describe how much I love the Grand Traveler from Vera Bradley! My bag has flown all over Europe (meeting those very strict Ryan Air carry on guidelines...which are a serious pain!). Since I have returned from Europe, the bag has been continually useful as I pack all my clothes (casual and work) plus necessities in it every weekend when I return home from college. Could not recommend more! This item is simply PERFECT!

Nice, Roomy Bag
I just got my new Grand Traveler in Citron that I ordered for a long weekend trip for the 4th of July. It is bigger than I envisioned and I know I will be able to fit everything that I need for my trip in this one bag. I am a chronic overpacker, lol. LOVE the color and the padded shoulder strap. It has pockets inside for those things I want to keep seperate and the pockets in front are perfect for my tablet. I also purchased the Jewelry Case. In preparation of a longer trip later this summer, I have already bought the strapped tote in Citron for my laptop. There's no doubt that my bags will be easy to distinguish from the rest of the luggage in the trunk. Road Trip!!! I'm ready!

I LOVE THIS BAG!!!!!!
I recently got this bag as a graduation present since i love VB so much. I was siked to try it out on my summer vacation to the Bahamas. It held six days of clothing (pajamas and day) and extras like tooth brush, hair straightner, bathing suit, etc. It was small enough to be a carry on and fit perfectly in the overhead compartment (even when full) and thats all the luggage I had. It even has a slip to put on top of rolling luggage. Be careful, it looks like a pocket. I take my grand traveler on sleepovers and can fit so much. Can't wait to use it next time, definatly recommend it!

Great for plane travel and more!
I bought the Grand Traveler in Flower Shower for a land/cruise trip to Alaska. I have the Weekender, purchased for my last cruise, 4 years ago, and have loved it! Since that time, I got a bigger camera, and therefore a much larger case. Since I had a carry-on roll-on bag, also, I needed a bag to hold my camera and case, a purse and all the other assorted things I needed for a 6 1/2 hour plane trip. This bag was perfect! It held camera, purse, Nook, ipad,magazines, down jacket, hat, gloves,etc. It fit under my seat, (even on a small plane), and in the overhead, too. On our trip we rode on buses and planes, and it fit in the overhead there, also. It was heavy to carry,mostly because of the weight of the camera and 2 lenses, but was ok hooked over the rolling bag. Thanks, VB for a great bag!!!

Be aware of false pocket sleeves!
I do love this bag and it is my go to bag for short or long trips due to its generous but manageable size. It fits well in overhead compartments or under the seat in front of you. My only gripe is that the false pocket sleeves designed to slip thru the handle of your wheeled carryon can EASILY be mistaken for actual pockets and we are fairly sure that my husband lost his keys thinking he was slipping them inside an ACTUAL pocket. *sigh* so just be aware.

This bag was a total life saver!!!! Now I can put all my stuff in it without using an extra bag. So many pockets, I can put everything in them. Awesome!

The name says it all!
I am a recent Vera Bradley travel shopper and I am hooked! Compared to the weekend I purchased about a year ago ( before the obsession started) . This product is much bigger in comparison which means it is double as functional. It hold twice as much for longer trips which is great. Highly recommend the purchase.
