For moms with kids this luggage is a must!
I have been collecting pieces of Boysenberry luggage for several years. I started with 2, 27 inch spinners. Then I bought a 22 inch spinner, a 27 inch spinner, a 2 wheeled pull behind (21 inches?). Most recently, I purchased 2, 22 inch spinners. One for each of my children(9,7 years), to carry on flights, plus a companion attache. I want my children to start carrying on their luggage and stop checking so much. After our last flight, after the holidays, checking our luggage is getting very expensive. I did the math and figured within 4-5 flights the luggage would pay for itself, instead of me checking cheaper harder to pull luggage. This luggage is very easy to pull/push. With the 4 spinners I can extend my arm, in front of myself and push it just as easy as pulling it. Or better yet, I have put the 27 inch spinners back to back, extended my arm and pushed them. I also do the same with my 27 and 22 inch pieces, plus put my 21 inch pull behind, on top of my 22 inch spinner. YES! Thats 5 pieces of luggage and they move with little effort because those spinner wheels are awesome. I love that I don't need anyone to help me, especially when I'm in a hurry! Boysenberry is a no brainer, who would mistake it for their luggage (at the airport, on plane getting luggage down after flight, on the turnstile, a bellman or after a cruise) and its super easy to keep track of at the airport. It's easy to describe as well. The luggage is so high quality and very well made. My 27 inch bags look great, even after 5 years of travel, and I never thought to spray (water repellent?) on anything. For me, this is the best investment I have made. I can't wait to see my kids at the airport next month with their luggage. My kids love pushing it around as well. So often at airports, I see fathers holding 5 cheap pieces of children's luggage, with this my husband could easily manage plus, the 22 inch spinner can hold a weeks worth of children's clothing. This mom is getting a break!

I purchased the 22" spinner in the classic black and I am pleased with the purchase. The luggage is well made and the "spinner" wheels make it so easy to move around when traveling. I love that the luggage glides when it is upright.

The Quality is Outstanding!
I bought this almost a year ago, and there isn't any signs of wear and tear. The features i love are the heavy duty material that its made from, the zippers that allow you to lock up your luggage, and the duster for storage. Personally, i take pride in my vera and do my best to maintain my vera's looking new so when i travel through the airport, i actually put the duster on and secure it with a luggage strap so i don't get mine dirty! :) You will be glad that you've spent the money on this well crafted item! I've also purchased a laptop backpack that allows you slip it over the handle while traveling and i use the backpack as a carry on item! Happy Traveling!

I just received this bag yesterday in Mocha Rouge and I am very excited! After seeing a few reviews of this bag on YouTube, including a couple with demonstrations of how to pack them efficiently, I decided to get one for myself. First, the bag is very well made. It feels sturdy, and is made of nice material. Second, it's pretty roomy. You can see how, with efficient packing, you could get a week or two's worth of clothes and accessories in this bag. The 360 degree spinning wheels are very nice. It spins freely even on my living room carpet. The telescoping handle is VERY long, I'm short and with it fully extended it's too long for me so if you're tall, no worries with that!! I will be posting a YouTube review of this product and all my other VB travel accessories. Love them!

I made my yearly pilgrimage from Japan to Denver to the Vera store there. Last time I had bought the 17 inch rolly bag in Day and Night. I loved it but it wasn't what I wanted. I -wanted- some good luggage. The lovely ladies who remembered me from my last year's trip were more excited to show me the latest and greatest. Once year I permit myself to go nuts shopping. I wanted something I could either check in or carry on; wanted something durable and long lasting. I bought this in Boysenberry and have loved it! Everything fits and there is a home for everything. Pockets galore! It's not made of cloth but of a heavy duty material which makes me feel the airplane isn't going to eat it. I also bought the matching Weekender with the trolly sleeve. I now have a whole set and won't need to buy anything for a while.
Oh, and they registered my luggage right there in the store for me.

What a fun way to travel! Just bought this bag in Mocha Rouge. I love it! Very classy and practical too. The spinner design is wonderful, works extrememly well. The color is even more vibrant in person. I can't wait to travel with my latest Vera Bradley accessory!
