It lives up to its name
I've used this on many weekend trips and it fits everything I need. I'm a pretty organized packer but if I'm going to be gone more than 2-3 days I use my Grand Traveler.
On trips that we fly I use a carry on suitcase and use the weekender as my personal item. My chargers all stay neatly organized rolled up in interior pockets, I put my iPad in the exterior zip pocket, my purse and whatever else I want to keep with me goes inside the weekender. It slips nicely over the handle of my carry on suitcase making it really easy to zip around the airport. Then on the flight home I check my suitcase, use my purse as my personal item and my weekender, stuffed full of my souvenirs, becomes my carry on item.
I really like this bag. I find it extremely versatile and I've gotten a lot of use out of it.

I went back and forth on what bag to get, between the weekender and the grand traveler. I am so glad I bought the weekender! The bag is bigger than you think, I was able to pack four t-shirts, four pairs of shorts, nine tank-tops, one pair of jeans, one pair of yoga pants, two pairs of shoes, and my straightener. I still had plenty of room to add more!! I am so happy with this product and glad that I didn't get the bigger bag. This bag is a must need for travelers.

Great travel bag
Love this bag as a carry-on as the trolly sleeve makes it so easy to get through the airport. I also have a Metropolitan bag and would love to see it come back in the newer colors. It is really the ideal size as a carry on.

Weekend just like it says!
Perfect for your weekend get away especially if you are a generous packer. I recently went away for a bachelorette party I carried two plastic jewelry cases the length and width of the weekender plus pjs and two outfits only trouble I had was with shoes but granted if I didn't take the cases it would have fit perfect if your looking for more then 2 days or are a heavy packer go with the grand traveler I have both pieces incase I need the little bit of wiggle room. Hope this helps :)

Weekender bag, perfect carry-on
I recently read all the reviews for this bag, and started to think it was a bad idea. It looked like that perfect additional bag I'd been looking for but a lot of reviews were saying the sleeve didn't fit the handle to their suitcase. So before I left for the store I measured my handle at the widest point. When I got to the store I asked if the clerk had a tape measure. She did and I was pleasantly surprised that the sleeve was plenty big. My handle was 6 1/2 in. at the widest point and the sleeve was approx. 8 in. Keep in mind my suitcase is a carry-on size. Not a super big one like you'd check. I use this bag as my purse item. Fits perfectly under the seat, and sits perfectly on top of my carry-on suitcase which is key when walking thru the terminals. It has a lot of room inside with plenty of inside pockets as well. Personally I think everyone would love it. It is very convenient, and don't regret purchasing it. If you travel a lot, and are near a Vera Bradley store I suggest you at least check it out. It might just be your knew favorite bag. Hope this review helps someone.

Awesome Dance Bag
I love the weekender bag. It is extremely functional for tons of uses. Not too big, not too small. I bought this in summer cottage. Only thing I would add is a side pocket for a water bottle. Otherwise, very nice!

Take This With You When You Go
Works really well for a short weekend getaway. It's full of pockets, inside and out and will keep you organized. It's not big enough for more much longer than a couple of nights, though. (But it's called the Weekender for a reason)
