Mini Loft Duffel
It had to go back :(
The size was okay,the main problem was a disgusting smell. I thought if I aired it out for a few days,put a softner sheet inside,that it would help. Nope! Very smelly! And one of the silver rings that holds the strap in the back was on backwards! Won't order any more of that style!!

Bag from Heaven
I got this bag for a trip to Paris. It was simply AMAZING!!!! perfect for long plane trips or even car trips. I would definitely say to get this, and mine is in Blue Bayou. Even after a year my bag is in great shape.

Chic, Practical Handbag
I bought this bag in La Neon Rose, and it is one of my favorite VB bags. I have problems with my neck, so I cannot use shoulder bags (doctors orders). Thus, I am always on the lookout for a nice handbag that is practical, looks good, and travels well. The Mini Loft Duffel fits all the requirements, especially with the black trim, which raises the chic level imo. I wear a lot of green, in different shades, so I can take this bag as a travel purse. There are so many shades of green, it goes with all my sweater sets, plus my black travel slacks. The bag is a large enough purse to hold all the daily essentials, plus a small bottle of water, a book, maps, tickets, passport, meds, whatever. Plenty of pockets to organise, and three outside pockets for items you need to access fast (like TSA cards at the airport).
VB used to have a version of this bag in black microfiber that I delayed buying until it was no longer available. Learning from that mistake, I snapped up this bag in Neon Rose the second it went on sale. Now I have my eye on this bag in Citron. I am a sucker for green, what can I say?
The only reason for 4 stars is that I wish the 2 front magnet pockets were just 1 longer magnet pocket. Then I could fit my plane/train tickets more easily outside the bag and still be secure. The 2 smaller pockets are nice, but not as flexible, use-wise. I really like that it is a handbag, with shorter handles. The handles on the original black microfiber bag were too long.

Love this bag!
I have been checking out this cute little handbag for quite a while and finally picked mine up in Citron! I love how cute the bag is and how much room it has! I can fit my wallet, keys, lipstick, lip gloss, compact, hand sanatizer and everything into this bag with room to spare plus there are outside pockets! Stylish and fits a lot of necessities, what more could you ask for!

This is a terrific purse! Lots of pockets, light, and can you believe it, MACHINE WASHABLE!!! It holds a lot. The trim does not feel like plastic. It really feels more like leather. I just bought my second one. Count on my purchasing a few more!!!

Love this Duffel!
I was hesitant to purchase this bag because I am a huge fan of Vera Bradley cross body styles but I do like to purchase something "special" also and the faux leather trim and simple duffel styling really caught my eye. I have the Barbara Frame bag (with leather trim and metal feet) which I love, so I bought the Mini Loft Duffel in La Neon Rose and absolutely LOVE it! It has a sturdy bottom and metal feet and the two front hidden slip pockets have a magnetic closure for safety. There is an additional hidden slip in pocket on the back, perfect for my iPhone. Inside are ample slip in pockets and a zippered pocket just as you'd expect from Vera Bradley. I do wish it had some sort of detachable strap (like Barbara) because I am not accustomed to carrying a hand held bag. For those of you that like a hand held, structured bag, the Mini Loft Duffel would be a perfect purchase.

I received this bag as a Christmas gift in Bittersweet. It is my new favorite bag for work. I love it and the colors are gorgeous. I usually carry crossbody style bags because I have children and need my hands free, but this one with the black leatherish trim looks so much more professional as a bag for work. I love that the bottom panel has metal feet! What a nice touch that I often complain about my other bags not having. I easily fit a wallet, keys, phone, kleenex, chapstick (plus various small purse items), and a kindle fire, with room to spare!

I love this style. I was a Caroline fan and this bag is a suitable replacement. Very roomy, holds a lot. Canterbury Magenta is a nice neutral print. Ample little pockets on the outside.

Love Canterbury Magenta!
I love love love the canterbury magenta print. Its so pretty without looking old lady-ish. I feel like some Vera prints look old instead of fashionable. The Mini loft duffle is super cute. I love how the leather looks with the print. Pockets are bonus and like other reviewers said its a more professional looking bag. Highly recommend!
