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!

Was a Glenna fan, now a cargo sling girl!!
I love all the organization this bag offers. I would also like to see this bag in the black microfiber. I hope this bag is around a long time !!! I don't understand why I don't see the new colors in this bag? This bag is so comfortable on my shoulder with the long wide straps. I would consider buying another color. I also don't under stand why Vera Bradley introduced the back packs first in the new colors??? Bad call Vera Bradley!

Love it, but wish it came in the black microfiber
Love Love love this bag, I have it in 2 patterns. Holds all the stuff I can't stop myself from carrying aroung, and so neatly organized finding things is easy. I live in NYC and things get dirty just walking around, I soooo wish it would also be made in the black microfiber.

Sometimes it can be hard to find a bag just the right size, not to big and not to small. The quest is continuous but since getting this bag recently, I think I may have finally found it. I needed something big enough to carry everything I needed for my daily trek to work but not so big I couldn't carry it on the weekends. I also needed something I could carry easily since I walk back and forth to the bus and work. This bag works on all counts. The added bonus is all the pockets it has. I rarely have to think of stuff to put in pockets but I think I actually had to this time. I LOVE having that problem. This may very well turn out to be my best VB yet. Got it in Flower Shower which is also turning out to be a favorite for me.

I don't like to carry the traditional baby bags. They are just too big and not practical to carry around for me. The Cargo Bag is perfect! It holds everything I need and keeps my stuff organized.

5 stars if inside zipper pocket
Amazing how much I miss an inside zipper pocket. Vera Bradley no longer makes my favorate bag so I tried this one based on reviews. It is very very room but I really miss the inside zipper for things like keys, change, etc. I put a small bag inside but because it is so roomy it makes it difficult to find when full.

Today my cargo sling came in the mail I was super super excited. It is really big and it does have plenty and again plenty of space. I'm so crazy about it and all of my vera bradly stuff. If anyone orders the cargo sling they will not be disappointed.

Great bag - even for school!
I love my Cargo Sling bag. I use it for my University classes. It is the perfect size to fit in my note books, book and 11'' Macbook Air laptop. The strap is even able to go longer than what I like for a crossbody so no complaints there. And it weighs nothing! So that's really great. It is also a great bag that I like to use as a carry on when flying. It is roomy enough for all of those necessities without being bulky. It's a great bag! Plus it's washable.
Would love however to see this style in solid colors too. Please make this in solid colors Vera Bradley! :-)
