Great for Travel
I purchased the 3-1-1 case for my recent trips to Europe. I didn't want to check any luggage for fear I might never see it again. I was able to fit all necessary liquid/gels in the case. It was a tight squeeze, I won't lie. I do think I would be able to fit a little more in a regular plastic baggie. The reason I prefer the 3-1-1 case is the zipper and the handle on the top. I can't tell you how many times my plastic bag "zipper" bag has broken, making the bag useless. The handle on the top of the 3-1-1 case makes it really easy to pull it out of my carry-on bag. I also love that the whole case is plastic in case of any spills.

Had to return
I was so excited to have a nice bag to put toiletries in when flying. I tried to put my liquid toiletries in this bag (shampoo, conditioner, base, perfume, etc.) and I couldn't fit it all in. I pulled out a quart size bag to see if I was expecting too much and it was clear that I could fit at least 2 more 3oz. containers in the plastic bag than in the Vera. I was very disappointed. It should not be advertised as the equivalent of a quart sized bag because it cannot hold the same number of items.

A Must Have!
I can't say enough good things about this piece! Excellent for travel! I recently purchased this piece for going thru security at the airport. I use it currently in whatever bag/purse/crossbody/tote I am using to put Emergency Kit type items. Love, Love, Love... The Best perks of this item is the handle. I would have not purchased this item, if it did not have a handle. It so easy to grab out of bag. Then, it being clear makes it easier to see where the items are at a glance. Also, that the zipper goes all the way around and opens up fully to grab items easier.
The only thing I would suggest is making the 3-1-1 in small, medium and large pieces.

Perfect for traveling through TSA
I am astounded that people are saying it's too small. It's a quart size, which is the size you are supposed to use when going through TSA. They couldn't have made it bigger and still called it a 3-1-1 TSA compliant bag.
Anyway, with that being sad, I travel back and forth frequently to my hometown with my infant in tow to visit family. This is PERFECT for my liquid/gel items. Instead of having a little ziplock bag (which I never have quart sized ziplocks so the sandwich sized ones don't hold much) which falls apart and is wasteful, this is super sturdy and can take a beating. I use a caribiner to attach it to the handle of my Vera Make a Change backpack/diaper bag so I can stick it through the belt quickly and not waste time.
The shape is great for holding a good deal, thick sturdy plastic, and it has a handle (which is what I use to attach the caribiner). I don't think I could ask for anything more. Would it be great if it were bigger? Sure. But then it wouldn't be a valid 3-1-1 bag and I really shouldn't be bringing that much stuff on carry on anyway, let's face it.

Great for hair stuff!
At first, I didn't want to get this because its so small and I didn't think it would hold a lot, especially for somebody like me who loves makeup and has a lot! But I have purchased a lot of hair supplies and needed somewhere to put it so this is what I purchased! All of my hair bows, barettes and clips are in here which again, is perfect! Now my cat won't get ahold of my hairbows and run off with them and I can keep all of my hair stuff in one place!

I love this bag! I have one that I use for what it is made for my 3 oz products for traveling. I do not travel with lots of 3oz bottles only about 2, everything else is a "deluxe" sample size or packet & it is perfect.
I liked the size so much I bought several for my Grand Cargo Bag, they are PEFECT to organize it!!! I put medications in one, & female products in another. Organizes so easy to find & see thru makes it easy to grab what I am looking for.

Too small for me.
I had been waiting for a sale. It was finally here but oh no, it is way too small. I really couldn't think of anything I could really use it for, so back it went. My first return but my own fault for not reading the dimensions. I love the idea of the see through bag and it was very well made but I wish this was offered in small, medium and large sizes like the fabric cosmetic bags.

perfect everyday cosmetic
I have this in Bittersweet.I carry this with me almost everywhere (as long as it fits in the bag I carry)! In here I fit lipbalm, lipstick, and vaseline lip therapy! I think this is too cute, thanks VB!

Great in concept but not large enough
I typically travel with a carry on only which means traveling with travel size toiletries. This is adorable but does not hold enough. I have another 3-1-1 bag that I received free from a cosmetics company that fits more toiletries than this one does. I love the design (especially the handle on top) and how cute the VB one is but it is just too small and therefore not functional for me. I used it once and returned to my other 3-1-1 clear cosmetic bag the next time I traveled. If it were a little larger this would be my staple, go-to toiletries bag when I travel.
