I am a sucker for travel items and am always having to try the latest and greatest; things to make traveling simpler or lighter, small tech gadgets, travel sized toiletries, you name it. Hands down my favorite purchase was the Vera Bradley Large Duffel*. I had wanted this for some time before purchasing it and had seen the awesome reviews on it- how much you can fit in it, how easy it is to wash and the look of it is just perfect.
I was lucky enough to find mine at the Vera Bradley Outlet Store in Naples, Florida for almost half the original price a few years back and I have used it on every trip since. If I am transporting my camera and laptop, I throw them in there. If I am spending the night somewhere, I load my stuff in there. When I travel I use it as my carry-on. I love that if it gets dirty you can throw it in the washing machine- so far I haven’t needed to but I’m sure it could use a good washing after all the airplanes and floors it has seen.
The original price of the bag is $85.00 which I still feel would be worth it if you are looking for a large bag to use for years.
My bag above is a retired color called Happy Snails. *I am in no way commissioned by Vera Bradley.
