Hey all! I am looking at getting a new backpack for our next trip to Disney.

Right now we carry this big, book type backpack, but wanted to downsize a little.

We typically carry sunblock, camera, bottled water, poncho's (if it is going to rain), wallet, autograph book, and pressed penny book (with rolls of quarters and pennies).

It needs to be neutral, not to girlie or my husband won't carry it (have a Vera Bradley backpack and he REFUSES to carry it!!!).

Thanks!!!

L.L. bean has a great sling-type backpack we use (they actually have several varieties). It can really pack in a lot and is very comfortable to carry. This is the closest to what we use now, but actually looks a little better.

This looks like a great bag! Do you think this bag is large enough to carry the things I would need for 3 children? Like Diapers and change of clothes.

I love LL Bean backpacks. They're very durable, and have a good guarantee. Most come with a padded back, which makes carrying it much more comfy. Good luck!

try: http://www.myclearbackpack.com/

We used one of these in 2004 and we were very happy with it. It's clear, so it's easy to see where things are in it. also, you can see if you forgot something or not. Finally, security really appreciated it and we usually breezed right thru.
