Vera Bradley Iconic Grand Weekender Travel Bag, Signature Cotton Review
Vera Bradley Iconic Grand Weekender Travel Bag
Iconic Grand Weekender is the signature edition imported cotton blend travel bag by Vera Bradley. It is rated an impressive 5 stars by 30 customers on the day of this product review.Vera Bradley bags are not cheap but you’re paying for the quality and design of the brand name.
The color and pattern options include Bordeaux Blooms, Butterfly Flutter, Charcoal Medallion, Coral Floral, Desert Floral + 1.50 Power, Dream Tapestry, Heritage Leaf, Indio, Lilac Paisley, Romantic Paisley, Snow Lotus, SuperBloom, Water Bouquet, Wildflower Paisley, and Winter Berry.The Iconic Grand Weekender is larger than the other Iconic Weekender that we reviewed earlier and measures 14.5H x 21W x 9.5D inches with plenty of space to put your belongings on your next journey. It is designed as a cabin-compliant bag and should fit in the overhead bin above you despite being larger than a standard carry-on bag.
It will also fit under the seat in front of you if you don’t fill it too much and put flexile items in. With its cotton blend and polyester microfiber fabric it is lightweight and looks rather stylish and modern. You can either hold both the 52.5 inch adjustable strap and the 6.5 inch strap drop or put one on your shoulder. It can also be attached to your suitcase handle by using the trolley sleeve. So you’ll get plenty of mobility with this modern Grand Weekender. There is a charger pocket, a slip pocket and two zip pockets to put your smaller items, passports, boarding passes etc. before you pass the security at the airport.
You don’t need to take an additional cabin bag with you as there is plenty of space inside this duffel bag as well as five mesh pockets for better organization of your items like toiletries, hair products, cosmetics, jewelry and other. You can also fold it flat as an additional travel bag to pack more stuff later. Vera Bradley bags are known to be very good quality and they should not fail or disappoint you unless you treat them badly.
The zippers won’t break and the bag will not rip or tear easily. This cotton bag is not water-resistant but the lined compartments for putting liquid items in are. You can certainly use it as a carry-on bag to take with you on the plane. But due to the lack of transport wheels and a carry on handle you’d need to make sure you do not pack it too heavy unless there is someone to help you out. Because it is a soft cotton material you can wash it in the machine without problems. Please note that this is a soft exterior bag and the items you put inside could get crushed.The handles are quite sturdy, they are sewn on well and comfortable to hold. You won’t have any problems even when the bag is full. It looks nice and modern, is well-built, good quality, very spacious, versatile, has a few pockets for better organization and is ideal for weekend or a few days’ travel.
