I own this duffel in "Very Berry Paisley" and it is one of the most amazing travel bags ever! I can fit three pairs of shorts or two pairs of jeans, pj shorts, a hoodie jacket, three tops, undergarments, three pairs of socks, my VB medium cosmetic filled, and a pair of flip flops or slippers. This bag is still comfy to carry when it is totally full. Plus, it is the perfect size to be used on an airplane as a carry on. It fits perfectly under the seat in front of you! When I am not using my "Small Duffel" for travel, I am using it as an overnight bag for when I am away from home. I will mention though... if you are an over packer, go for the "Large Duffel!" The "Small Duffel" in my opinion, is one of the best bags Vera Bradley makes! <3

Perfection in a Duffel!
I dance 20 hours a week, including weekends, so I figured this duffel just might do better than my old, worn Adidas bag. Not only is this duffel fashionable it's function-able! It fits my tap shoes, pointe shoes, ballet shoes, jazz shoes, lyrical foot undez, hip hop sneakers, knee pads, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and an extra pair of tights!!! It's also perfect for a sleepover duffel or carry-on duffel! Thanks Vera for saving the day! If anyone was wondering, i got this in Jazzy Blooms pattern which is absolutely lovely!

My Favorite Travel Companion
I love my small duffel in Ribbons, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good airplane carry-on bag. Even when it's stuffed completely, it fits perfectly under the seat in front of you.

Great Travel Bag
My Small Duffel in "Go Wild" is my favorite bag for travel. This little workhorse holds far more than you would think. On a recent trip, I was even able to stow my leather jacket inside along with numerous incidentals. The bag is easy and comfortable to sling over the shoulder, and best of all, fits great in the overhead bin of the plane. If necessary, it could fit nicely under the seat too. I paired it with my new hipster in solid black for a fashionable and practical travel duo. The Small Duffel is definitely a must have.

CLOSE TO PERFECTION!!!
I thought I had no reason to purchase a duffel bag. But, I wanted it in the Suzani pattern before they sold out. How wrong I was...I love it! The size is perfect for me and, of course, Suzani is the lovliest pattern Vera Bradley has ever made (in my estimation). I've already used it to carry all my stuff to work, even my handbag and lap top. I will use it as an overnighter. I will use it as a carry on when flying. It's a definite to take on the train. Because it is sturdy and still lightweight, the uses are immeasurable. One suggestion...a zip pocket on the inside would be a valuable addition. Otherwise, I am completely sold on my duffel.

Great for anything!!
Just purchased my fourth small duffel in Heather and can honestly say they are good for any event. It makes a great sleepover bag, gym bag, and carry-on and last forever!! The only reason I have 4 is because I love the patterns soo much and I like to have options when I go someplace.

Great Duffle and fits a lot!
I just got my small duffle, and I was very surprised at how much it fit. I packed for 4 days, 3 nights and still have room for toiletries and extra pair of shoes. I pack pretty light, but it is definitely a perfect weekend bag. Keep in mind shipping, I paid for 2 Day Air and I had to hold it at the nearest FedEx because it was not going to come in time. 2 Day shipping comes in 4 days so plan accordingly! Overall very happy with purchase.

Great for Sleepovers
I use this all the time for one-night sleepovers or vacations. I didn't ever expect to be able to fit a whole weeks worth of clothes in this, so don't count on it. It's much small than the large duffel. On big trips, it would be a good bad to put toiletries for the whole family in.

My dance bag
I bought my duffle in English rose to use for my dance team and I love it ! I went home and tried putting my dance stuff in there and it fit perfectly. I can fit all three of my uniforms my huge bow water bottle phone keys snack sunglasses iPod and iPad in there with plenty of room! I don't think I could pack a weeks worth of clothes but I can pack plenty. I was so pleased I went and bought the matching laptop backpack and median cosmetics the day after I love I just wished it had a small pocket for my phone oh well it's still awesome totally better than the large it's so heavy and has unnessary room at least for me
