Vera Bradley has never been my style, per se, but I can see a lot to like here in this duffle bag (with travel sleeve, huzzah!), which is currently one of the most-bought items for May among readers. I’m always a fan of lightweight “extra” bags like this, and I also like colorful, printed ones — they’re easy to distinguish at the bag check or inside of an overhead cabin. LeSportsac Weekender bags have been my go-to for years for this purpose, but I’ve always hated that they don’t have a travel sleeve to fit on the top of a rolling bag like this. (I was always a fan of the XL size, but it looks like that the L size is much more common nowadays.)
So I’m DELIGHTED to see that more and more companies are coming out with travel sleeves — it’s just such an intelligent feature. The Vera Bradley bags look nice and roomy, as well as lightweight, and they come in a nice variety of prints and colors. There’s also something about a fun print that says “GETAWAY!” instead of “work travel,” which is always nice.
The pictured bag is on sale for $74, but there are a ton of other colors available for $82–$165. Nice.
