Small Mesh Tote
LOVE the Mesh
So lightweight and easy to carry ! Yes, it's small 13x9ish but perfect for carrying a snack or pool necessities, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, iPad ;)
The mesh is super easy to wipe clean !

Super little bag for sporting events
I bought this bag last summer simply because it was mesh. I didn't have specific plans for it but as I have discovered with many Vera products, what I end up using them for isn't always what is mentioned in the description. Some of the reviews have mentioned the smallness of the bag and I wanted to give input as to what it could hold. I attend a lot of sporting events, want to take a cute little bag, worry about what will happen to it due to drink spills, peanut shells, etc. I used this bag last week for spring training games and it was perfect. The mesh would have made it easy to clean. The open top made it easy for security to see everything. The tote expands wider than you would think; I fit wallet, phone, keys, 2 mini-planners, 2 boxed baseballs, small camera. During the game had to hold my son's glove and baseball and a Gatorade bottle. It probably couldn't hold much more but if needed to, I would have given back his glove! One more thing: the Go Wild print is a great choice for Pittsburgh Pirates fans (or other Pittsburgh teams). Just like Canterbury Cobalt is perfect Tampa Bay Lightning :).

Cute but way too small
This tote is super cute and I love the mesh material but, it was significantly smaller than I anticipated and I will be returning. I know, I know they post the dimensions but, the word "tote" implies a bigger bag than this turned out to be. The mesh material makes this ideal as pool or beach bag but, it is not large enough to hold even one beach towel. It could hold a book, sunscreen, and a few small items only.

Perfect Little Girls Beach/Pool Tote!!!
I purchased one of these (in Jazzy Blooms) for my 5 year old niece. She is already into totes and handbags and absolutely LOVED this tote. It is the perfect size for a little girl to tote back and forth to the pool or beach. While the name is correct (it is quite small) it still fits her beach towel, some snacks and sunblock while still leaving her some room for some pool toys, goggles, and other little toys. I purchased one for myself (in Plum Crazy) to keep my SPF bottles in (for the pool/beach) and I put it in my Seashore Tote so I don't have greasy lotion bottles in it since the Mesh Tote is washable. It's also typical VB quality, excellent. Very sturdy mesh. All in all I would recommend and they are super cute but keep in mind that it is exactly as described, small.

They do mean small....
I ordered the mesh tote, because I thought It would be great to hold all of my cosmetics and bathroom supplies while I get ready in the morning. i love the idea of the mesh, because I live in a dorm, and have a community bathroom, so needless to say the counters get awfully wet! The mesh was a great idea, but by the time I put all of the items I need, in their vera cases of course, I had very little room! I should have gone with the large mesh tote, because the small seems to be more like a mini, and now they aren't even selling the large mesh tote anymore! So sad!

I went to a pool party and this bag was great! it held my towel, sunscreen. Change of clothes, and my wristlet! I liked the zipper pocket it in the bag so I can put things that I don't want wet or ruined. this is a great bag for the pool or the beach.

Great tote for every day use
I absolutely LOVE this tote. Lightweight, stylish (Jazzy Blooms) and just the right size for toting around lunch and items that go back and forth to work. Stands up nicely and can fold flat if needed.

Cute Bag but VERY Disappointed!!
I got this bag in the Plum Crazy pattern as part of the towel/tote combo only because they didn't make the bag in the Midnight Blues patten. The bag itself is very cute but when they say small they mean SMALL! The towel doesn't even fit in it!! There is no zipper on it so I don't know what I'm gonna be able to put in it that's not gonna fall out? Overall very disappointed. I mean come on if you sell it as a set with the towel people at the very least expect the towel is gonna fit inside it, right? This may be the first thing I return to the company. I just don't see any use for it for the price?

Great little tote!
I picked this bag up as part of the towel/tote promotion. I love it! I picked it up to use poolside for a vacation my husband and I are taking in March. I also use the bag to throw my stuff in when I go tanning. It is a very classy bag and is definately one of my favorites!

Beachy and fun :)
I love this VB bag because wheather it's at the beach or on the way to work, it's a cute accessory that turns sassy into classy with it's nylon linings and straps. I'm the kind of person who automatically likes anything and everything Vera Bradley, but this one was instantly my favorite. It makes everything a dress-up event. I especially reccomend this bag in the new Spring 2013 release pattern "Jazzy Blooms" beacause the colors blend very well together. From sporting events to a weekend with the family it combines cute with confident for this beach bag. Until next review, I'm LillyLikes, and this is your "Needs-a-Judge"
