Although a bit big, I love this duffle! When I received it in the mail I was surprised at how big it really was. After considering returning it, I decided it would be nice to have the extra space so I could pack my pillow, cosmetics and clothes in one single bag. The only thing I would change is the straps (It would be nice to be able to adjust them, dince they are bit long), but overall I love this duffle!

Good, but could use adjustments
I bought this in Mocha Rouge and I love it. But I am very short and the straps are super long. I tend to over pack and everything fits in the bag easily but it gets very heavy, and it is so long so it is hard for me to carry around for too long. Overall a great product though!

(For Me) On the Verge of Too Big
I picked one of these for my own birthday present -- but to be honest, I thought I was selecting the large size. I'll likely go back and get the large size in the future.
Good news: 1) it fits a LOT of stuff. 2) the bag itself weighs nearly nothing. Bad news: it holds so much stuff, it's hard to carry.
As soon as I got it, I excitedly took it on a plane as a carry on. The airline didn't hassle me for a carry on like other reviewers. They let me on with no problems.
I had this bag only 3/4 full with normal things (clothes and only one pair of shoes) & it was SOOO heavy I could barely lift it without it hurting my shoulder. Carrying it through the airport so terribly uncomfortable for me that at one point that I bribed my teenage son to carry it for me. That was hilarious! :)
The handles are really long. Long enough to go over the shoulder cross-body for me (I'm 5 8).
I still like this bag ok. But the limits are that 1) it can't be overly full and 2) it's likely better for a car trip where we aren't going through an airport.

Excellent travel bag!
This bag is a lot larger than I thought it would be, but that's perfect! Depending on how you pack, you can live out of this stylish duffle for days (but not an entire week). It's my favorite bag to use when I travel short periods of time.

Way too big for me
I was looking for a weekend size duffle bag - one for me and one for a gift. This bag is beautiful (like all Vera products) but it is way too big. I am not a small person, and I felt dwarfed by this bag....and that was with it empty! If it were full, I probably wouldn't be able to comfortably carry it! Before you buy this bag, make sure you double check the measurements. It's larger than XL - it's HUGE!

Nice size for travel BUT handle ripped off
I hate to give 1 star for a Vera product, coz I have couple of them. BUT when I used my XL Duffel (I have 2 Large duffel also), for the first time, checked in airline. when I took my duffel from the rotating conveyor for luggages, I saw the 2 handles , ripped from where it was stitched . I can see my clothes coming out.. :( :(. Was really disappointed. Just want to let you know the duffel is not even over packed. I'm tempted to buy one right now coz its on sale. Half of the price I paid from the first one, but I'm afraid it's going to be ripped again. ..

I went on a ski trip and florida trip and it fit all of my things great. I could fit a jacket and all of my ski clothes in it! It has a great out side pocket for an easy reach. Its just the right size!!!! Great size, space and style, If you want a duffle I would reccomend this one!!!

stellar for any Super Vera Fan!
Anyone who is considering buying the extra large duffel bag should. This bag is huge with great space for a week at the beach. ATTENTION- I would personally get this bag while the promotion of 20% sale is going on. I got it during the secret sale last month so this is still a great promotion. Anyway, this bag is great for any child off to camp or for a sleepover. IT IS HUGE!
