I just bought this bag in the new Limes Up color this week just because I knew I wanted this bag! I am travelling this weekend and have it all packed up to take as a carry on for my flight. So far I have packed 4 tops, 1 pair of pajamas, 1 pair of pants, 1 swimsuit, 2 pairs of shoes, and there is still room for a pair of jeans, my blowdryer, VB large cosmetic bag, and my hair straightener with VB cover, plus room for a book and snacks in the outside pockets! I know this will definitely fit in an overhead compartment and probably under the seat too. So far I think I have more in this bag than my normal wheeled carry on! The shoulder strap is comfy, and it's not even too heavy to carry around when it's completely packed full. Love this bag already! I think I will get this bag for my mom for Mother's Day...

Roomy and Pretty!
I love my weekender in Plum Crazy! The colorful, vibrant pattern matches my mood when I am packing for a get a way! I can fit roughly a weeks worth of light weight summer sundresses, swimwear, flip flops as well as make up and other essentials. Or, when we are headed up north in the fall to the cabin I can fit maybe 3 or 4 days worth of long pants, long sleeve shirts, a couple sweatshirts and the essentials. The bag feels very well made and sturdy while still soft and comfortable to carry. I always feel good buying from Vera because I know I will use these products for so many years. Great quality!

I recently bought the "Paisley Meets Plaid" Weekender for a trip to the Philippines. I ordered it 2 weeks before my trip and I was so glad that I did. It was the perfect bag, I just absolutely love it. I used it as a carry on, on the airplane. I was able to carry ALOT of things all in 1 bag. I just loved the WEEKENDER so much that I recently purchased another one in a different color. I plan on using it for all my trips.

I recently flew to South Carolina and used my Weekender (Paisley Meets Plaid) for the first time. I was able to fit all of my toiletries and miscellaneous items into this very spacious bag. The bag was under the seat on the airplane and in the overhead compartment and on the airport floor... after the trip, the bag still looks brand new!! I love this bag so much that I wish I could afford to purchase another. Unfortunately, this particular design has been retired and replaced with a new Weekender... I much prefer the older version. Anyway, it is now my favorite VB bag along with my Miller Bag and five Betsy bags.

Beautiful, functional, durable
This is a great bag for traveling. I pack it for business trips and there is a place for everything. It is not too large to get too overpacked and heavy. Very comfortable strap. Bought one for me, both daughters, mom, etc. Would be great gift for high school or college grad.

I have a weekender and love it. So when Vera offered a 60% off sale I ordered one for my daughter and daughter-in-law. I got two for the price I paid for one. Love Vera and their GTEAT sales.

Best travel bag I've ever had!
I bought this specifically for a 2-night trip, and I was NOT disappointed! I fit several full-sized bottles of shower items in the pockets, smaller items in the big zippered area on the back, enough clothes/pajamas for 3 days, a pair of shoes, and a hair dryer comfortably in this bag. I removed the long strap (as it is just a clip-on) because I only wanted to use the smaller top handles, so I can't say anything about the functionality and strength of that handle... but the small handles were very sturdy and held up carrying several pounds. I would highly recommend this bag for short trips!

Weekender is FANTASTIC!
I can't believe how much I fit into this sassy bag for my two day trip! It was light, easy to carry (love the shoulder strap) and flashy! A great bag for two day packing!

Such a great purchase!!
I am a college student and I have been looking at this bag and the Grand Traveler for such a long time and was debating between the two. When it went on sale, I couldn't resist. I ordered it in the va va bloom pattern and it is gorgeous! Plus, it is so much bigger than I expected! It is so perfect for all my weekends home. It fits everything I need with extra space left over. I am so happy with my first Vera purchase!

Very nice bag for traveling!
I got this bag from my gramma in my favorite Vera patter, Vava Bloom. I am very happy with it! For me, it can fit up to five days worth of outfits, plus my bulky toiletry bag. I use this bag as a carry- on for flying, along with my Vera tote also in Vava Bloom. It has many great pockets on the inside, along with a couple zip- up pockets on the outside perfect for boarding passes or other papers. I took off the large strap, just because there is no way i can hold the weight of it on my shoulder. Overall, this is a very nice bag.
