Vera Bradley Lighten Up Weekender Travel Bag w/ Cosmetic Case is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prettier than the picture This was a big splurge because it's expensive and I could have used another bag that I already have for our upcoming vacation. But sometimes a girl has to treat herself. It's so pretty and I can't wait to pack it up with my bathing suit and sunscreen!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware it has plastic parts I have a bunch of Vera Bradley bags, including a weekender bag from years ago. I loved the fabric on this bag and bought one a few months back. While I love the size of the bag, and how it looks, as well as the fabric, I realized when I got it out today to use it that the clips on the strap are made of PLASTIC. I didn't notice this earlier, but I got out my old weekender bag, and it indeed had metal clips. They seem sturdy as a rock. This one, while I do love it, will one day break, as these types of plastic inevitably do. If you look at it closely, it looks cheap, too -- certainly not the material I would expect on a bag that's over $100. I'm sure I'll love using this bag until it does break and becomes useless, but I am disappointed that VB switched to plastic. I won't be buying any more bags, as clearly they're going with cheaper methods than they used to. It's not like there are is a dearth of bags out there that I love. If it weren't for the plastic clip, this would be a 5 star review. Really nice, roomy bag and the fabric is very nice. Just beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love to Lighten Up! Just received my Vera Bradley Lighten Up in Aqua Geo. Love IT!!! Living in Arizona, there are so many opportunities for a weekend road trip and I wanted to ditch my "captain's bag" -- whether traveling by air or by car, but was uncertain. I needed enough room for a week (although I'm planning only on weekends--what can I say, I choose my wardrobe based on how I feel). This bag gives me just enough room for choice without loading me down! Also, I really appreciate the padded shoulder strap--it makes hauling without strain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gym Bag I got it in the water geo . I am impressed with the fabrication of this bag. It has tons of compartments. It is water proof, perfect for the gym! I was on the fence due to size, but when it arrived, the bag meets all the qualifications for a gym bag, great size for a petite woman like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever! Love love love this bag! I used it for the first time flying from NJ to AZ and it fit under the seat as a carry on. There are plenty of pockets and the additional cosmetic bag was perfect for all my toiletry items and medication. Highly recommend this bag.
