Weekender is fabulous!
I just purchased this bag in Midnight Blues while traveling. This is my first Vera piece and I love it! Not so big that it breaks your back when packed, and perfect carry-on. I travel for business and found that this fits in the overhead bin and/or under the seat. The loop on the back fits the handle on my luggage perfectly making it easy to stack and transport. The pattern is beautiful-chose it so it would not appear soiled so easily. I was so impressed, that I went to this website and ordered the make up and jewelry pieces to go with it!

Great carry on bag
This bag is a wonderful carry on for a short trip! It holds much more than I thought it could with room to spare. Light weight and spacious it is a must buy!

I purchased the Weekender in Ellie Blue online. I love it. It is well made and holds alot. It holds everything for my husband and me for an entire weekend, including his shaving kit and my large VB cosmetic bag, (excluding our pants, shirts, skirts, etc. which go on hangers). It has a large zipper pocket outside on one side, 2 large slip pockets outside on the other side, and 4 large slip pockets inside. There is a removable piece of "hard" plastic that slips into the bottom to make it more sturdy. The adjustable, web fabric carrying strap can be removed and you still have two sturdy handles for carrying. I have not washed mine yet so cannot attest to that aspect of the bag. This is a wonderful piece of VB to own. You won't be disappointed.

I originally asked for a different Vera bag for my birthday from my son and he got me the Weekender. I am so glad he did!! I love it. My daughter used it for a weekend and like it so much she bought one. Her friend liked it so much she bought one.

Best Weekend Bag Ever
I just purchased this bag in Jazzy Blooms. I used it this past weekend for a weekend trip across the state for our Nieces wedding. WOW! It fit everything plus much more that I needed for the entire weekend. It is a great bag for either overnight or a few days away. I would recommend this bag!

The name says it all!
My husband got this for me during the Mother's Day event, and I almost didn't get it for I have a huge Dooney & Bourke duffel bag, as well as VB Forest duffels from college that I love to use when I travel. But I like luggage and I like to have options so wear isn't always done on one bag. I am happy to say it's TSA & carry on friendly! This bag held my clothes for the weekend, plus some laundry I needed done, before heading back to work. Noticed at least 6 other women in Midway with the Weekender in other patterns... Now I'm hooked back on VB and looking for some other pieces in Suzani to finish me off. I think my husband is regretting this purchase for I've already bought my daughter some pieces too!

Such a great purchase!
When on the hunt for the perfect travel bag, I knew I couldn't buy another tote nor rely on my backpacking gear to do the trick. I originally went with the large duffel, but it was just too large! Then I found this. The weekender is perfect for 3-4 day trips easily. It's carry on friendly, has a padded shoulder strap, and handles too. Not only is it a great size, but there is compartment space on the side, and pockets on the inside and outside. While the large duffel is great for major traveling that requires you to bring everything, this does the trick for shorter get aways. Very happy :]

Excellent for Travel
I recently went on a choir tour in Europe for two weeks. Since our main luggage was inaccessible all day, I pretty much lived out of this bag since our main luggage was in storage during day travel.
It comfortably fit a change of clothes, a few books, my performance outfit, music binder, two water bottles and snacks with room to spare. I also used it as my only carry-on. It had no problem fitting it in overhead or under the seat storage compartment on airplanes and busses. The outside pocket made my passport, important papers, and wallet easily accessible during border crossings. The inside pockets kept all of my miscellaneous items organized. I'm a pretty small person, but I had no problem carrying this bag around with me everywhere I went. I also plan to use this bag on weekend trips home to visit my parents or our cottage.
I love this bag and would definitely recommend!
