Sport Duffel Travel Bag
The perfect PERSONAL ITEM for airport travel
Airlines only allow one carry on and one personal item. This looks like a big PURSE, so airlines consider THIS the personal item/purse. Tuck your purse INSIDE this for boarding. You still have room under your purse for a pair of shoes, a change of clothes, iPad, makeup bag. snacks, sunglasses, bathing suit, jewelry case, med case, and an airline book. It is like the airline is giving you a second carry on piece for free. Once boarded and seated, take out your purse and tuck this under your seat. Boom. Done. And best part, my 7 year old daughter can strap this to her rolling duffel, so even the little girls can manage a SECOND piece of luggage during the airport tunnel walks. So her favorite stuffed animal CAN fit and can come along! THIS PAYS FOR ITSELF in 2 trips. And I love that!

Perfect carry-on bag
I had been looking for a new, compact yet roomy, carry-on bag for ages and this bag fits the bill perfectly. The generous front slip pocket on the front and open interior, including 3 mesh pockets for organization, make this a wonderful travel bag but what really sets it apart is the slip-through compartment on the back. I use it to hold my travel pillow which frees up so much space inside, that even with everything I might be carrying, the bag seems to always have room for more stuff. The shoulder straps are soft and comfortable and the bag fits nicely under an airplane seat. I purchased the Flutterby pattern which, in my opinion, is the all time cutest pattern VB has ever released. Very happy with my purchase and totally recommend this bag!

Nice small bag and good silhouette
I would categorize this bag as a small bag (not big enough to be a weekender but larger than a handbag). I love it. This would absolutely be appropriate for an overnight trip (1 night) or a weekender for a child. Otherwise, the best use of this bag would be a personal bag you fit under your seat on an airplane or a large handbag. I would use this bag to put a pillow, snacks,or reading material to have handy on a plane or car. The silhouette is very flattering and doesn't overwhelm the body. I *could* put a few outfits and a toiletry bag if using as a weekender but then I probably couldn't fit other incidentals. Either way, this bag is a winner,
Many complain about the "floppiness" of the bag because it doesn't have a solid bottom but this does not bother me and I prefer it without the solid bottom.
