Grand Cargo Bag
Great, for EVERY DAY
I take the train and the bus to work. SIZE ..... I carry this bag many times as an everyday bag. I find it is large enough to put a small purse, cosmetic bag, flat shoes, lunch, and any documents or items I bring home from work. It is light weight and easy to carry, I often bring items home from work and it just looks like a larger tote it is not specific to travel and I didn't look like "wow, she is carrying luggage". ,,POCKETS..... It has a zipper on the outside plus two pockets, inside it has several pockets and is deep and roomy. If you have to carry a kindle, or small laptop this is a good bag, I was able to put a lot of things, and when taking public transportation I feel it is better to carry less bags which is better for ones safety.

A wonderful addition to my collection
The reviews here were mixed, but I am glad that did not keep me from ordering the Grand Cargo in pink swirls for myself. I had eyed the pink swirls pattern in several styles, and a generous promotion became the deciding factor in favor of the Cargo. The pattern, which I feared would be too young or playful for a middle-age woman, turned out to be whimsical and pretty --- perfect for any age. The Cargo itself is comparable to the Weekender in size and capacity. The Grand Cargo is about two inches shorter in weight and three smaller in height. It is ideal for everyday use. The deep interior and outside pockets provide many options for organization and storage. I love the design, which is a nice addition to my collection.

Great Hospital/Beach/Kid Stuff/Teacher/Weekend Bag
After realizing that I didn't really have a nice bag to take to the hospital when I have baby #5, I splurged on this one and a matching pair of pajamas. I was afraid this bag might be too boxy or not big enough for my stay, but I was wrong. It is perfect! It does have some structure and a reinforced bottom, but the sides are not stiff and squared. It is slouchy and casual looking unless it is stuffed to the max. I can fit my makeup, hairdryer, slippers, several pairs of pajamas, and other necessities for a 2-3 day stay with plenty of room to spare.
I am impressed with the details, like the pockets on the front, which are padded. I also like the bright chevron interior, which makes it really easy to find anything. It opens nice and wide at the top, too, so it is not like anything gets lost in a too-deep bag.
I could see myself packing this full of beach towels and gear for the kids this summer, as well as using it for teaching when I go back to work. It is a very roomy and versatile bag.
And I love the bright Ziggy Zinnia print that will brighten up the winter and work all summer long. I was so pleased that I bought another Grand Cargo Bag in the Flutterby print, which is also pretty and fun. Very happy customer here!
