Rolling Work Bag
In comparison to previous work bags, HORRIBLE!
I received the bag as a gift 10 months ago after tirelessly petitioning for it as a birthday present. I travel for work weekly via plane and car and was looking for a spunky departure from my typical rolling business bag. Unfortunately, despite being super roomy (can fit laptop, IPad, file folders, binders, chargers and more) this structure of this bag is extremely flimsy. After two uses, the handle fails to collapse upon walking onto a plane or entering a meeting. I've had to become a master at quickly retracting the handle, as not to embarrass myself. Frequently the bag will flip itself over, as there is no support from the handle or body when you hit a "bump in the road". There is no point in even trying to roll this bag through the aisle of a plane. Firstly, it is too wide to roll on it's wheels and secondly, this bag is not equipped with four wheels, making it very difficult to maneuver when you've become accustomed to a word of spinner bags. Overall, the bag is beautiful and roomy, but the lack of structure and support makes it a nightmare to travel with. It looks like I will be putting a new business bag on my holiday list this year... and it will not be a Vera Bradley.

AWESOME QUICK TRIP COMPANION
I recently traveled to San Francisco for a quick training. Purchased this to try my hand at "packing light"! NEW BEST FRIEND!!!! I packed my laptop, cords, etc in tech space and placed 2 sweaters, 2 tops, PJ's, and personal care items in larger space. I carried the Metropolitan with my iPad and other business needs. Couldn't believe I was traveling for 3 days with only 2 small VB bags....I ALWAYS OVERPACK, (just ask my family)! Love the Plum Crazy pattern. This is a MUST for travel OR the office...I'm looking forward to using it once school resumes to transport student work and save wear & tear on my back & shoulders!
