Even in a healthy weight range, I'm full figured and have equally difficult times finding clothing, maybe more so! Small numbers with big letters are pricey!

    Meredith: Thank you for reminding me that I need to double check my bags! I don't think I want to take my diaper bag... but the idea of having everything in the stroller fit into one water-proofed bag is great. So I'm going to have to think and maybe do a little bargain shopping for bags. ;)

    Husband carries the backpack - kid and I sometimes take on sherpa duty, but he usually doesn't mind. It's a Patagonia (can't remember the style, but it's one of the smaller packs). If I carry a bag, it's a Kavu Keeper. That's the rare cross-body that doesn't give me the aforementioned mountain path treatment. I had a Baggalini. Carried it once. Hated it.

    Is this the same Overland donner bag some of you mentioned? It seems small (10 x 7)...So, I was making sure before I order one! I want something for my stuff...DH will carry backback as needed!

    Thanks!!

    May I say Trudy that there are pictures of me in this type of situation, that's why my hubby always carries the big bag (if we take one) and I have a pouch!!..your so funny!

    I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I bought this bag last month (based on your review) for the up-coming trip, but decided to put it into service a bit early to carry my nurse's gear. AWESOME!!! I'll definately use it for Disney, but it's going to get so much use beyond the trip. Thank you so much!!

    Thank you!! I just ordered it.

    My family went to the zoo yesterday and my purse just wasn't working. I said to my DH "i need a cross-over bag, that is water resistant, big enough for the camera, snacks and a water bottle, with nice straps." and it looks like this bag is exactly that!!

    For anyone that would like the good padding that many backpack straps have, but you don't want to lug around a full-size pack, check out kids backpacks at REI and from companies like Camelbak. Most are made of ripstop nylon, so they're lightweight and they look nice. These aren't book bags, but day hiking packs.

    I found they had much more comfortable straps than the smaller purse/backpack options. Sometimes it's tough finding one that's not bright pink or blue, but I have one in a dark purple and black that doesn't look like I've raided a kid's closet to find it.

    I just ordered the overland bag from ebags for $28.79 - there are a few discontinued colors at that price. I'm so excited! We're not back at WDW until September but we're going to the Bronx Zoo on mother's day so looking forward to trying it out then! Thank you for the recommendation, it looks like a great bag.

    If we're not taking a stroller, we usually don't take ANYTHING that we can't stuff in our pockets. I usually wear cargo shorts and a button-up shirt, so I'll usually have some trail mix packets and Mio in a pocket, iPhone and FastPasses in my chest pocket (moved to a zippered pocket when I go on rides), external battery pack and cable in another pocket, and we're set. What else could you need?

    It also has the advantage of being able to skip the bag check lines. :)

    I had a baggallini messanger bag, used it, hated it, sold it, bought another............ I guess I figured if everyone was raving about it, it must be great. I dont know. I used it last trip, still not my favorite. Its great for the plane~big enough for ipad, snacks, books etc, but there is something about it in the park that I dont like.
    I think I prefer the crossover bags, even though the messenger bag kinda is, it's more like a backpack I think. It might be too hot on my back (we always go in August). I wanted to buy that crossover bag yesterday that Trudy posted the link to for $29 but I have a bazillion bags so I just couldnt do it. So now I am stuck with my baggallini messenger for another WDW trip.

    I bought the baggalini one too that everyone loved, but I didn't like it at all. I'm so glad that I already found my perfect bag and don't have to keep buying more! haha Even though I am tempted to buy it in another color...

    I have a slim crossbody bag that I love, which I plan on using again. It looks small, but I still manage to lose things inside it, if I don't keep it organized :)

    I'm very, very picky. I can't have anything with thick, wide straps and nothing that touches my back. I thought about the baggallni, but I think it would drive me crazy for these reasons?!

    Katie, that's so funny because I want wide straps and would rather have a backpack than something cross-body or hanging off of one shoulder. No wonder there's no one "perfect" bag for us all!

    So I caved last night and bought the overland one. It is THE LAST thing I need, but I did it anyway. I really have no self control......
