Rated 5 out of 5 by Olderandwiser Get one of these while you can!!
After scoping out similar fabrications of this Preppy Poly Travel Bag and the PP Travel Duffle in my local store, the manager convince me that this model was the best: a little more structured than the duffle version, and she was a thousand percent correct! (The PP Travel Duffle just looks like an overgrown sack.) I bought this for an overseas trip before Christmas when I knew I would be pushing my checked baggage allowance to the limit. I wanted a bag that stood a chance of passing as a purse, to carry on board with my black VeraVera duffle. This Travel Bag was perfect!!! I had so much stuff in it but when carrying it over my arm without the shoulder strap, it really did look like a giant purse, and I got zero side eye on 4 different flights because it fit under the seat! Genius!! My fabric duffle obviously fit in the overhead, so I essentially had an extra suitcase worth of clothes, gifts and all my technology for my outgoing flights, and this was even easier to use as a purse on the way back home when it wasn't as full. Would I ever use it as a legitimate daily handbag? No. But especially for winter travel it is a fabulous look that was over-the-top functional. Love the top double zippers, and the trolley sleeve; enough other pockets to make this easy to organize. Highly, highly highly recommend!!

Color: Toast is the perfect classy color that is like a chameleon and goes with everything--
Subtly blending in with other patterned bags or stands alone in a solid collection!
The Overnight, weekend, spring break, fall break, Christmas break bag!
Care: Water-repellent polyester, with odor-resistant lining--a college students Answered Prayer!!!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by PatriotFarmersWife Great for short overnight trip!
I received this the day before I took an overnight trip with my husband and it was perfect! A little smaller than what I originally thought but works perfect for a short overnight trip! Great quality and looks very stylish and professional! I would like the same bag just a little bit bigger so back to the website to look I go!
Rated 5 out of 5 by PittsburghPosh Perfect Weekend Travel Bag!
I'll admit, I strayed away from Vera Bradley for a while because I am a professional business woman that wears a suit to work everyday and I just didn't feel the bold design in fabric fit well with my suits. Plus, I am very rough on my bags, so a beautiful cotton fabric would be covered in dirt in less than a week. Recently, I was in search of a weekend travel bag that had a sleeve on the back of it so it could attach to a rolling computer bag. I saw the Preppy Poly Tote and was surprised at how pretty and sophisticated it looked. The dimensions and description seemed to fit my needs, so I ordered it in BLACK. When it was delivered I was thrilled! The bag is everything the description says and more. The fabric is so pretty- just enough sheen to look classy, a very simple cross hash design on it, and beautiful brass/gold zippers and very minimal red accent touches. Absolutely beautiful! The size is perfect for traveling between my house and apartment each weekend. There is a sleeve on the back that can fit over my roller bag. There is also a convenient adjustable shoulder strap as well as shorter carry handles. There are ample pockets and the fabric lining is a pretty accent-- but not so bold that it jumps out at you when you open the bag. I absolutely LOVE this bag! In fact, the day it arrived, I went back online and ordered the matching tote and wristlet. It is such a beautiful set! I now use the tote and wristlet as my primary bags for work. I would very highly recommend checking out the coordinating pieces as well!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Vicky01 Not comfortable to carry
Love the look and size of this bag BUT it does not function well. The most important con is that the handles and the strap are very uncomfortable. Many bags have padding on the strap where it is put on the shoulder and some have padding on the handles as well. This bag was used for carry-on and in airports where one travels a lot and the distances are great this was definitely not comfortable. Also would have loved a bigger outside pocket for airline tickets, passport etc.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BritBornAmerican Perfect for travel to rainy climate
I ordered this for my daughter as her birthday is before we take a trip to Seattle in the late fall when it is rainy. I am impressed with the quality of this travel bag, the handy compartments and the looks of it. It will fit under the seat in front of her on the plane and be able to handle dirt and rain.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jmn1028 Good Weekend Bag
This bag is a great size for a weekend trip. It's easy to carry, but I've only used it a few times, so I'm hoping the handles last. The poly. material is thinner than I was expecting, but it's a nice print.
*Side note, my bag was shipped with dirt on it, which was kind of weird, but I was able to wipe it off with a wet rag and it appeared to come clean. Therefore, for starters, the fabric is easy to clean!

I didn't know what to expect from the little zippered section at the bottom of the bag. It will be PERFECT for shoes and last minute things I always need to stuff somewhere!! The color is fantastic!!
