Vera Bradley Signature Print 22" Spinner Luggage
Sturdy, functional and beautiful! Loved the spinner function.
Would make great international carry on!
I read all the negative size-wise reviews here, and I know now - this bag is exactly what I'm looking for!
I am in search now for international size carry-on spinner, and can't find something which would fit my needs, and still fit international carry on size limits. I am VB fan, but all their previous spinners I would not even try to use on foreign airlines. I hate to check in such a beautiful piece of luggage as VB' s are, and I'm afraid I would need to do it sometimes, as I had experience like this with other carry-on's, which are the same size as "older" VB spinners. But it seems like this particular spinner is just perfect size! It's on my wish-list now.
Somebody complained, that when giving the sizing on this bag, they measured it with wheels. But that's how luggage should be measured, and that's how agent at the gate is going to measure it, and decide would they let you on the plain with it, or make you check it in.
I just wish this luggage would have a little more organization inside and outside - like older VB's had. That's why 4-stars.
But the spinner and the size - these are winners for me!
Very pleased with this suitcase!
I purchased the 22" to use with the Plum Crazy TSV travel bag from January. I used these pieces and the matching large duffle for a 6 day trip recently. The 22" bag holds quite bit. The TSV bag is designed to slide over the handle of the 22" bag. Even though I had the TSV travel bag loaded heavily, the 22" bag was very stable and rolled easily and did not fall over like some of my other rolling suitcases have. The bag is very well made and so pretty that I will only use it for auto trips. If you need a large suitcase this is not the one for you. I liked the size, it was light and easy to handle and met my needs. I plan to purchase the 27" as well.
If this is a 22" bag, it must be the most poorly designed imaginable. I have other 22" bags, including Kathy VanZeeland, and they hold 3 times as much as this bag. It holds as much as a large makeup bag or small tote. It is sturdily made and very beautiful but I will seldom use it. Definitely not worth what I paid for it.
Be aware...Very small
Let's just say, I love luggage! Have lots of different brands. Some top end and some for design or appearance. This will be for appearance. I also usually order vinyl protectors for new pieces and did the same this time. They both arrived on same day. The 22" universal vinyl cover, which fit all other 22" pieces was 2" too large for this luggage.. Meaning this luggage is about 20" at best. Not sized like any other luggage I own. I gave 3 stars because I like it as part of collection, not for sizing accuracy. Also rolling action of wheels quite smooth. Child-like in size. Should be ok for carry-on on most planes. But must me very short trip or light packing.
