I like cross body's because they are already perfectly positioned when ride-time comes!

Le Sport Sac here. I use the backpack and the fanny pacs... everything matchy matchy. Looking for a new one for our trip in a couple of weeks. I keep everything in baggies in case of the rain and it dries pretty fast. I love that the backpacks come with another little zipper bag inside.

I bought a smallish Gucci backpack in NYC 10 years ago and it has been real workhorse for me. Hands free, cute and has worn like iron..still looks like new.

Camelbak MULE.
Has an few good size pockets in addition to the bladder compartment. I like the kids being able to stay hydrated without having to stop, dig the bottles out of the bag, spill all over, put the bottles back....everyone can drink while we walk.

I have a cross body strap Coach bag that I always use for theme parks, it's nice to have a long strap and not have to worry about putting your bag down or holding onto a bag. For me, the most important thing is having a small wallet to carry with me throughout the day so that I don't have to carry my normal wallet around (which is ginormous compared to my small Coach bag). I still haven't been able to find a small wallet to carry just some cash and a few cards that I really like yet :/

I got the Pine on clearance from REI. It's like a Hunter Green, but that color is sold out now. They still have 2 colors left last I checked for $34 (Overland Donner in case anyone's wondering!)

I think it will work perfect!

I ordered the Overland Donner too. It was shipped yesterday, so I should have it in a few days.

I ordered Black. Yes, I had to pay more, but guaranteeing that my husband would be willing to carry the thing if I needed him to was worth the extra cost me.

Hopefully, its as good as it looked on the website. We've tried all different kinds of bags over the years..backpacks, diaper bags, shoulder bags, etc. and none have really been up to snuff.

For those of you who were looking for the Baggalini Crossbody. I saw quite a few at our local Marshall's for $15, so shop around . They had black, teal, red, and navy.

I'm leaving in two weeks and are planning on using the VB mini hipster. I have a three year old so I still have a large skip hop bag that I carry in the parks.

I have two...

I have two bags that I really like.

1. The ful peabody mini-sling. I have one that is a light blue color.

2. Travelon sling bag

These are both good bags. I've had the ful bag for several years. It has a zippered pocket on the strap that my family has dubbed "the fast pass pocket".
