Perfect in every way!
I bought the Weekender bag in Flower Shower as a birthday present to myself and man do I know how to pick awesome gifts for myself! The pattern is even more beautiful in person and the interior of the bag is so spacious. That was a concern of mine b/c I tend to overpack for everything, but I fit all my essentials inside without even using the extra pocket on the outside and still had plenty of room left over! I'm so glad I opted to purchase this bag, it's absolutely perfect.

A smaller version of the Grand Traveler. LOVE it!
I ordered this to use as a carry-on. I have the grand traveler but it's too big to take through the airport. The weekender is still a good size bag, and probably too big for a carry-on for the average person, but I have a toddler and need to bring a lot of stuff. I love the suitcase trolly sleeve - it was a snug fit, and worked great. Ordered it in the Pink Swirls pattern and thought it was even better than pictured. 5 Stars all around!

Fantastic for weekend trips
I used this for the first time for a quick 2-day trip with a toddler. I was able to get all of our clothes, shoes, toiletries, electronics and some books for baby into the bag w/o it getting heavy. It was the perfect size for the overhead racks on the train, and fit across the handle of my stroller w/o tipping it over. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a weekend bag.

I have 2 Grand Travelers that I use when traveling by car and I love them! However, I will be taking a trip overseas and the new airline regulations require a slightly smaller bag so I bought the Weekender. Wow! It us really roomy. I haven't actually flown with it yet but I did a trial run and packed it with what I would need in a carryon and I had room to spare. (Will be also checking a bag). I read a lot of comments on other sites where they used this size carryon for 1 to 2 weeks of clothes and other needs and while I could not do that, I think I could come close! I am just really pleased with the room and the cute look.

Trolley sleeve fits
I originally bought the grand traveller but it became too large and heavy when filled (I kept it because I got a good deal). The weekender is more appropriate for small getaways or a carry-on and thankfully it does fit over my samsonite luggage handle, unlike for other reviewers. I have a small frame and have no problem carrying it.
I bought my weekender from verabradley.com but unfortunately there is some wear on it that suggests it was a returned product. This is somewhat disappointing and I would recommend buying yours directly from the store, if possible.

for overnight trips.

Great For Just About Everything
The weekender is the perfect size for almost any occasion. I have used it for a weekend trip, a carryon, and a gym bag. I was worried that the trolley sleeve would not fit my LUCAS luggage, but it fit perfectly. I would definitely suggest this bag if you are interested in the following:
-A good size carryon
-A bag for a short trip
-A gym bag
-A diaper bag
- Any other circumstance that you want a sturdy, fashionable, and lightweight bag

Perfect for a carry on!
This bag can hold about 5-7 days of clothing and other travel necessities. If you're packing lots of thick sweaters or jackets, it probably won't work for a longer trip. I've taken this bag as a carry on three times on Frontier airlines and it works with their strict dimension policy (even when jam packed). I love all the pockets and the little slip sleeve to put the bag around the handle of a suitcase. 10/10 would purchase again!!

Weekender that's more than weekends
I travel often for work and I depend on my weekender as my second allowable carry on for flights. It's roomy, light and durable. It's one of my two "go bags". I gab it and go. You cannot go wrong with picking this one.
