Mini Loft Duffel
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!

Ventian Paisely Mini Loft Duffel
I am a very busy grandmother and I visit my grandchildren alot so I got this duffel for easy travel. The duffel is fine but I do not care for the print. I usually like the new prints and my favorite print is Canyon. Like I said the duffel is a good buy but get it in another color. Even my grandson told me it was ugly and he is only six.
