Rated 5 out of 5 by Analovesvb YOU NEED TO BUY THIS
The functionality of this organizer is incredible. I was looking for something to fit my skin care regime in and a little more. I'm able to fit 5 full sized bottles in here, some makeup (i hardly use any), panty liners, two combs, a small electronic razor, floss and probably more if i needed too. It is BETTER than the original hanging organizer yet it is so much smaller and takes up the space of a vb large cosmetic when zipped up. basically, it has the space of the large cosmetic but with hanging convenience. the clear compartments are genius but i do wish the small one on top wasn't clear. i love the mesh pockets inside the middle compartment because i can still see through to see what i have in there and it also provides great organization to fit a couple smaller items inside. there is nothing negative to say about this organizer. but the best part is that no matter what i have inside, the zipper always zips up and it hasn't fallen apart. its so great that even if i had to leave my house right now and go someplace i had to stay overnight, all i would have to do is zip it up and i'd have all my essentials in this cute organizer. if vera bradley made this same style but bigger, id buy that one too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olderandwiser Get this while you can!
I think since this was introduced I must have bought 10 of them as gifts, and each recipient was ecstatic-- not because it was VB because, frankly, my friends don't care, but because this is the most well thought out travel cosmetic bag ever. I quickly started using mine every day at home, because it holds all the essentials and more. The zip around closure is crucial, something lacking in other VB hanging organizers. And the clear plastic compartments hold everything you can think of. Other reviewers have described what they cram into this bag so I don't need to repeat that, but the important tidbit that is not obvious in the photos or description is that you can layer more items in the center section ON TOP OF the mesh compartments. Why VB is discontinuing this, and the Miller bag, is way beyond my comprehension. I already bought a back up one for myself for years from now when this one bites the dust.... Get yours now!

Rated 2 out of 5 by standardpoodle Too bulky when full
If space, when you're stuffing your luggage, isn't an issue, then this might be fine for you. Not us. We found that when it is full, the size of it is too 'puffy' and the zipper was too tight. We now use a Vera Neoprene organizer for small bottles (center pouch) and makeup/hair stuff in the other 3 side pouches instead. The inside pockets are roughly the size of a large sandwich baggie. If it is filled to capacity, you can't zip it shut. The larger hanging organizer is more flexible in that you aren't forced to strain a zipper to shut it. I think they can do better.
