This bag is big, but perfect!!!!
I ordered the Grand Tote in the Va Va Bloom color and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!! While it is quite large, it is perfect for travel and even better - school. I'm in college and have to pack around a lot. This bag is perfect - it has a zip pocket on the inside - I use to carry pens, student I.d, etc.. It even has a key clip so you're not constantly looking for your keys. I'm able to carry my laptop and the bulky charger, my iPad (all in the protective sleeves Vera Bradley offers) multiple textbooks, several binders, and even my purse!!!! If you are looking for a bag that holds a lot, this is the bag for you.
Wish I would have bought several at the time. This bag is so functional!

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!

The Tote for Everything!
I just ordered this bag and I've used it more than I can count! This is a HUGE bag and can fit anything in it. This is great for a day at the beach/pool. I can put 3 towels in there along with lotion, 2 cell phones, my wallet, my husbands wallet, a change of clothes for myself, my daughter, and husband. The key clip is great so you're not climbing in the bag to look for your keys. I don't mind that it doesn't have a zipper because it's the type of bag you just fill to the max and can't zipper it anyway. If you are looking for something around the size of this bag, but want a zipper I suggest the Miller bag. I have that one as well and can basically fit the same amount of stuff in either one.
