My life bag!!
This bag is amazing, seriously amazing.. if you are on the brink of buying this bag JUST DO IT!! This bag holds an extra outfit, my 13inch macbook inside of it's case, my iPad mini in it's case, my quart sized toiletry bag for TSA screening, my makeup bag which is large (over-packer problems), my brush belt for my makeup brushes, my large wallet, a bottle of water, and my large Vera Bradley makeup bag with my phone charger and Macbook laptop.
The Vera Bradley weekender has SAVED MY TRAVELING LIFE and the sleeve fits perfectly on my 21inch Olympia roller suitcase (I think if you were trying to slip it on anything other than a carry on sized suitcase it would be a tight fit). I don't know how I traveled with just a backpack before this.
JUST BUY IT!!!!

Packs way more than a weekend!
I recently used my weekender on a family trip to Fort Myers. We stayed for 8 days and I was able to pack 3 pair of shorts, 3 sun dresses, 1 pair of pants, 5 t shirts, 2 swimsuits and pajamas. It was packed full, but it was able to hold an entire week worth of clothes. It is carry on compatible which is essential for me. Very pleased with this purchase!

Trolley sleeve does NOT fit
I have the old weekender but thought I would get a new one specifically for the trolley sleeve. Unfortunately, I have tried it with my Lipeault bag and all my Bric's bags, and the trolley sleeve does NOT fit over the handles of any of these pieces. The salesclerk told me the sleeve was made to fit over the the handles of the Vera luggage. I think it is shortsighted of the designers to not make the sleeve large enough for most handles. The 2 rear pockets are so small and fairly useless anyway, so the trolley sleeve could be larger without compromising other functions. The bag is pretty and otherwise well made, so I may keep it anyway. But I am definitely disappointed.

love love love it i got this in island blooms and used as a carry when i had my one month Australia trip it was perfect because i could just hook it on my suitcase and go! when I'm not using it it sits at the top of my closet and holds all my other bags overall this is a wonderful bag

Makes my overnight stays easier!
I am in the Army Reserves and I LOVE this bag for drill weekend! It holds my work uniform, boots, toiletries, pajamas, and two sets of civilian clothes with ease! Awesome as a carry-on as well. Let me tell you; I can't count how many times I've flown through Chicago on orders and have had them 'lose' my bag. This baby ensures that I AT LEAST have the bare essentials to get me through the 48-72 hour period without the rest of my clothes/uniforms. :)
I would highly recommend this bag!

Can't wait to take a weekend trip with this!
I just received this in Canyon and it's gorgeous! I've been needing a bag for overnight and weekend trips. I haven't actually used it yet, hence the 4 stars. It is VERY roomy and has plenty of space for a weekend get away. I'm visiting my sister in March for a few days and cannot wait to see what the Weekender's full potential is!

Love this bag, but.....QC is lacking greatly!
I only gave two stars but I really do love this bag...read on. I have to agree with Alaskaglobetrotter, I have two of these bags and no issues with them when using the suitcase handle sleeve. I just purchased the Blue Bayou from a Vera Bradley retailer and the handle will not fit in the sleeve unless you force it and fight with it! I am very disappointed and have to return it. I'm ordering another from the Vera Bradley site and hopefully this one will fit properly. The reason I love this bag is because I can use the sleeve to secure the bag on my carry on. I really love this pattern and it is exactly the color I've been looking for. I can only hope that the problem is secluded and not the whole lot. VB needs to make sure they keep running a tight ship and that QC is remains a priority. Especially since the price tag is a bit on the high end, you would expect better quality.

First Vera Travel Bag!
I wanted a travel bag and I picked this one up for my one night trip for New Years! I picked it out in the beautiful tutti frutti and loved it! I could put so much stuff in it and didn't need another bag until I tried to fit my robe inside. If you are just going somewhere for one or two nights, then obviously this bag is made for that, but its not meant for extensive stays anywhere. I love the strap and the fact that I could put this on a suitcase if I wanted to! Besides not being able to put my robe inside it, I love it!
