28" Expandable Upright
stand out in the crowd
I got this in Mocha Rouge and have used it multiple times on cross country trips. The four wheel spinners on the bottom make it easy to handle. Easy to spot on the luggage carousel. Very big and I like the garment bag, ditty bag, lock and storage cover.

Seam split after 1 flight
I was so excited to use my new suitcase, and took 1 flight - not even a roundtrip flight, just 1 flight, and the seam split so that the fabric is coming away from the zipper, exposing my items and allowing them to fall out. I cannot express how disappointed I am. Not to mention, my return flight leaves tomorrow and I have to fly home with a damaged suitcase, hoping and praying that all my items stay in the suitcase. I gave it 2 stars because it is beautiful and has lots of handy pockets that make packing fun. But if it's not functional, what's the point? Maybe I just got a dud? Even at the sale price, I expect better from Vera.

28 expandable upright
Had this suitcase used it 4 times then the zipper became defective. nothing was stuck in it,it was just the teeth were defective. Had to cut it open to get articles out of it.

Beautiful luggage that holds a lot
This luggage is beautiful (Mocha Rouge) and holds a lot. I have flown with it 3 times since getting in 8/11 and have noticed some fabric wear and a broken zipper pull. I bought it to use it and am not bothered by wear, but caution anyone who wants to keep their luggage looking pristine that it will not hold up well to frequent rough handling by airlines. It is easy to pack and holds a lot. At 5'5" I found with the handle fully extended that the bottom of the bag drags on the ground, so an easy correction for me has been to not fully extend the handle, forcing me to keep the bag more upright. I have also found that the Grand Traveler easily flops around to the front and then drags on the ground. - haven't found a fix for that. I would buy it again, in fact I have given it to my daughters who love it!

Recently received this great piece from my daughters for my birthday. As always they treat me well and gave me an awesome gift, knowing I have matching Weekender and metropolitan. I love the numerous pockets and secure straps. It's worth the price as it looks so rich and makes me feel oh so fine!

Really a great piece of luggage! It's very stylish and easy to identify in the airport. I have only flow with this luggage three tims, but it still looks really nice. It is the perfect bag to have for a long week away because there is ample space in the multiple compartments. The price is a little high in my opinion, but when you recieve the quality that I have then it is worth it. The only thing I dislike about it is the fact that the telescoping handle uis a bit short which does make it a little difficult to put a bag with a trolley sleeve over it. Other than that, I think this is a great purchase.
