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.

Versatile and Carry On Compliant
I travel weekly for work, always checking in my HEAVY rolling suitcase. I fly out on Monday and home on Thursday. Purchased the Weekender and able to pack three days worth of clothes, pajamas, extra pair of shoes, make up. I no longer check luggage. Between my laptop case the Weekender, I am able to pack everything I need and carry on. The Weekender is soft and pliable and can be stowed easily under the seat - even the Canada Regional Jet and Embraer Regional Jet (small plane- 75 passengers. The Trolly sleeve could be a tad larger for the larger handles on laptop bags or suitcases.

It lives up to its name
I've used this on many weekend trips and it fits everything I need. I'm a pretty organized packer but if I'm going to be gone more than 2-3 days I use my Grand Traveler.
On trips that we fly I use a carry on suitcase and use the weekender as my personal item. My chargers all stay neatly organized rolled up in interior pockets, I put my iPad in the exterior zip pocket, my purse and whatever else I want to keep with me goes inside the weekender. It slips nicely over the handle of my carry on suitcase making it really easy to zip around the airport. Then on the flight home I check my suitcase, use my purse as my personal item and my weekender, stuffed full of my souvenirs, becomes my carry on item.
I really like this bag. I find it extremely versatile and I've gotten a lot of use out of it.
