Best ever - functional and organzied!
I love this cargo Sling!!! I use the All in One Crossbody as my wallet and throw it in the Cargo Sling with my ipad mini, make up bag, sunglasses, epi pen and what ever else I need to carry. Sometimes a book to read! It isn't too heavy even loaded with stuff and when I don't need to carry it I grab the All in One and go. It would be functional as a diaper bag, carry on and just a tote/purse. I love the crossbody strap and sleek design but the ability to carry so much in it. Sorry to see it isn't in the new colors. Hope that doesn't mean it is being discontinued. That has become my most recent frustration with VB.

Great travel bag
I have this bag in 5 different colours! It is my go to bag when travelling. I can fit my SLR camera in a case, sunglasses, tissue, hand wipes, wallet, lipstick, bottle of water, purse with meds, spare camera battery, cardigan, brochures and maps...you name it.
I am a plus size woman and often the crossbody purses have straps that make the bags look like a pimple on a pumpkin....not this one! Plenty of length and it is adjustable.
I would highly recommend this bag!

Best cross body bag around!
This is the most convenient cross body ever. The size is perfect for holding my ipad,as well as carry on items for a plane. I like the front pockets for my phone, gum and mints. This bag is so balanced it does not weigh down or pull on your shoulder,. I plan on buying another just because I love it so much. I also wish they were made in a few more colors!

Best Bag in Vera Bradleys line !!!!
This is the best bag in the Vera Bradley line of handbags. But I don't understand why Vera Bradley is not introducing the new colors to this style bag?? I hope you are not discontinuing this handbag?? After re-introducing this bag.!! I love all the organization this bag offers ,the wide long shoulder straps.and the size of the bag is perfect! I was going to purchase another bag in one of the new colors! What a disappointment! I I I also would love to see this bag in the black microfiber or in the future raisen color coming out this winter. I hope Vera Bradley re-considers other wise there making a huge error!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Needs more patterns
LOVE this bag!! I've had this bag for years in a retired pattern, of course. Then the style got retired and I couldn't find it anywhere, oh my! I put my favorite of all time away for safe keeping and prayed Vera would hear my prayers, Yay she did. Now all I want are more patterns, that's not too much to ask, right? It HAS to be made in ZIGGY ZINNIA, just sayin! Everyone I know, especially me, loves this new pattern, and so they should, lol. Please, Please PLEASE make the cargo sling in ZIGGY Zinnia!?!?! Thanks for listening.

Super when you have a lot to carry!....
......love it! This is my very first Cargo Sling from Vera Bradley, and it's fantastic. Plenty of room, front snap pockets, back zipper pocket, and interior slip pockets....outstanding! I got this bag in Fanfare, and it is beautiful and perfect for summer!

I got this bag back in 2006 in petal pink It was my first vera purchase. After using it a few times I put it away because I thought it was a diaper bag. I don't remember handbags as having all those pockets back then. Now in browsing I find the same bag but called a cargo bag. Now it looks pretty cool with side pocket for my sunglasses on one end and side pocket on the other end for my cell. The front pockets are great for my keys and loose change so I don't always have to grab for my wallet. Inside is large enough for an umbrella, rolled up jacket, wallet, make up case and still room for other things in all those inside slip pockets. Strap nice and wide for cross body option. Sitting in my closet for all this time. what a rebirth and don't think I will bump into anyone who has this color. I am thrilled.

Great all around bag!
I absolutely love this bag. It is able to hold so much and when it is filled to the brim it still relatively light to carry. It also is a great diaper bag if I need it to be on certain days. I wish they had more color choices and they offered in basic black for the days I need to be a little more dressed. I plan on getting another but am waiting to see if it comes it black. This is probably my favorite bag that I have ever owned from Vera Bradley. Please offer in more color choices.

Amazing Daily Diaper Bag
You don't even want to know how many diaper bags I've tried, it's at least 10. I've tried all of the Vera baby bags as well, and this non diaper bag is the best diaper bag I've found for everyday use! It holds everything I need for a day, and I cloth diaper and these are quite a bit bulkier than disposables. I've found it helpful when others list what they fit so I'll run over it really quickly-
Back zipper: large changing pad folded (came with a different diaper bag) and disposable changing pads and diaper trash baggies. This is great because these things are easy to access one handed and lay down before sitting baby down to change her.
Front cargo pockets: one houses my VB euro wallet and a plastic baggie with my coupons as well as my keys, and the other is my "mommy pocket" with small deodorant, body spray, gum, chapstick, compact, ect.
Side pockets- these are a little tight but anything bigger and I think they'd make the bag too bulky, so it's no biggie. One holds sunglasses and my I slip my phone in it, the other holds a burp cloth that's easy to grab one handed if my baby spits up.
Main compartment side slip pockets- one has cotton nursing pads and feminine items, one has the medium packet of boogie wipes, the other has 2 size 2 disposable diapers. Any more or any bigger of a size and they wouldn't fit and would need to go in the large main area.
Main open compartment- swaddle blanket rolled up, cover clip to turn swaddle into a nursing cover, wipes, two cloth diapers, wet bag, change of clothes, bib, nasal aspirator, pacifier holder, two small toys, and bottom balm. I also (if necessary) throw in an older VB zippered sunglasses case with travel sunscreen, bug spray, teething tablets, and a thermometer in it.
THAT'S A LOT. And it all fits. I could throw other smaller things in. I love it, love love love it. My favorite thing though is wearing it crossbody and being able to access EVERYTHING in it with a baby in my arms. It's great. I just use it when I'm out shopping or out for the day, for a longer trip I'd reach for something larger like the Make a Change Bag which is very spacious. I have it in Heather and it's seriously beautiful in person! If you need a medium/largish purse/diaper bag and need to be hands free this is the best I've found!

Best bag ever!
I've loved Betsy, Mandy, Squared Away, and Glenna, but none hold a candle to the Cargo Sling for organization or a comfortable shoulder strap! I love everything about this bag, and have a bad feeling that we are not seeing tis bag in the newest colors. I had plans for two new colors, but not without my Cargo Slings? What's up Vera?? Please don't say this is a short lived deal!
