Love the Grand Tote for Everything!
This is a great, lightweight bag that I use all the time. From a weekend trip to a day activity, it's a perfect bag. Some reviewers mention how big the bag is but I don't think it is too big. I am 5' 6' and its a good size for me but my daughter who is 5'1'' also carries one often. I own it in Suzani and Midnight Blues and my daughter has Rhythm and Blues. She works in a school and uses it to carry multiple bags - backpack, purse, lunch, etc - so she only has to carry one bag from her car. She also packs it for weekend trips. I don't mind that it doesn't zip because I can get more in it and easily see what I do have in it. The Grand Tote and the Vera are the two bags I pack for traveling. The Grand Tote holds enough clothes for a week or all the essentials for a day trip. I even use it for daylong shopping trips at the mall so I don't have to carry multiple small bags. LOVE IT!

Large, roomy bag.
This bag is a little bigger than I thought it was going to be, however, I have found it perfect for my needs. I am going on a road trip this summer and I know I will make good use out of it. For those of you that already have Vera bags, you know how good the quality is. If you're new to Vera, you will not be disappointed!

Great as a carry-on tote
I purchased this bag along with the Grand Traveler for my 16 year old daughter for a trip. While she was able to get all her clothes, shoes and toiletries in the Grand Traveler, she used the Grand Tote for carrying items she needed quick access to, such as her purse, passport, reading material, snacks and such. She was on a 7 day trip out of the country and between the Grand Traveler and Grand Tote, she was able to take everything she needed in carry-on baggage. She was also able to put an additional pair of shoes and a small blanket in the tote and still had some room left over. I also own a Grand Tote and use it all the time! When I need a large bag, I grab this tote because it has the right amount of room without being too big to handle. My only wish is that it had a few more pockets inside. Overall my daughter and I love this tote!
