This thing is a beast
I got one of these bags when I was a junior in high school for Christmas from my family. I have now just graduated law school and am starting my practice - it's finally time to replace it. In that time, I carried that thing back and forth to college, to my boyfriend's/fiance's house, to Europe, to the gym, to virtually every event in college where I needed changes of clothes - and I was in a bunch of clubs, so I was always hopping from one event to another. I had it with me for every single legal interview, both on campus and off campus, and I even took it with me to the bar exam for 3 days. I can fit easily 4 or 5 days of clothes in it, plus all my make up bags and a couple pairs of shoes, etc. The crazy thing is, the reason I need to finally replace it is because my friend's dog chewed on it and tore a hole in my trusty bag. I was completely crushed - I actually cried. If it hadn't been for that, I wouldn't be looking for a replacement any time soon. As it is, I've fallen in love with the canyon pattern and plan to replace my old (gorgeous) maison blue pattern from nearly 10 years ago. For what it's worth, I have the large cosmetic too, and that was the bag I used every single day for 4 years while in college (and many other times before and after - every. single. trip.), because I didn't have a better place to put my lotions, makeup, etc. in my dorm. It finally developed a tear in the plastic lining, but the outside is still as good as new. It's crazy.
If you're thinking about investing in VB, go for it. Find a pattern you love, find bags that fit your lifestyle, and maybe in 10 years it will be time to look again - or maybe not. College kids' luggage probably gets more abuse than the average person's, so I'm thinking I'll probably get 15 years out of my canyon pattern.

Large Duffel is dynamite!
Love this large duffel and bought several for family members as gifts. It holds a tremendous amount and can be taken as a carry on bag when flying. Large enough for a long weekend (or more) and when you are home it folds so you can pack it away easily in a drawer. a shelf or under your bed! Love the colors, designs and the fact that it is dynamighty!

Just in time!
I have been looking for a large duffel bag for quite sometime. I have a habit of over packing sometimes, and that always leads to carrying multiple bags to my destination. Well, lately I have been in love with Vera Bradley so I decided to look for one. Behold, I finally came across the large duffels. Before purchasing, I read all of the reviews and a majority of them were stating that this bag could carry up to a week of 2 of outfits. So of course I had to purchase it. Let me just say that I do NOT regret my decision to get this bag at all. I have it in Lola and I used it this past weekend on a trip. It was super durable and I was able to fit more than enough. I was able to fit: A sweatshirt, a pair of sandals, 3 pairs of jeans, 3 shirts, night slippers, a Vera Bradley large cosmetic, and a couple more items. Here is the kicker, I STILL HAD ROOM!! I also put my charger and headphones on the side slip pocket. I had everyone amazed by the bag to the point of them wanting to purchase one. I will be getting one for my mom as an early Christmas present.(:

Best Bag I've Ever Used For Traveling!
I love this bag SOOO much!! I have been eyeing it for 2 years and I finally ordered it today! Most of my friends have one and they all love it and I've seen them use them and this just seems like a great bag! I will be using it for church camp in a few weeks, a senior lake retreat, various school choir performances, and many other church trips throughout next year! I will also use this when I get to college! I don't think I'll ever regret this purchase!

Fantastic Huge Weekend Bag
I bought this bag in Midnight Blues wanting something I could pack my clothes, my cosmetic case, my extra shoes, blow dryer, curling iron, and more into. I frequently run to the City for the weekend, but I don't want to take several bags that I have to lug around. Finding a bag that will accommodate everything, and yet not add to the weight itself was not easy. This bag manages it wonderfully. I can put all of my things in it, and sling it over my shoulder for carrying in and out of hotels. With it I only make one trip from the car to my room when traveling. Carrying only one bag and my purse is a huge advantage to me. The straps are nicely made and don't cut into the shoulder. The slip pocket on one end is great for things you want get to quickly. I'm thrilled by the workmanship. This is a well-constructed bag at a great price. I definitely recommend it.

This duffel bag is great for a long trip or a short trip. Keep in mind that it is big. When I got it, I was debating on whether on not to get the small duffel or the large duffel and I got the large duffel and I was surprised on how big it was. In a couple weeks I'm going to Florida and I'm pretty well convinced that that bag will hold all of my stuff. The bag is so light and great looking. I got mine in plum crazy and I absolutely love it!!!!!!

THE Travel Bag
I have this in plum crazy and I adore this bag. I always bring so much stuff for my weekend trips. I have enough clothes for a whole week, including four pairs of jeans, two pairs of sweatpants, shirts, sweatshirts, dresses and so much more and I STILL have room for more clothes if I really wanted to! I can fit that and my hair dryer and curling iron into this bag and I still have room for other things. This bag is so durable despite all of the stuff I put in it. This bag is of great quality and I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially those who travel a lot because this is not super big, yet holds a lot!! I would buy another one again just because I love it so much!!
