View Full Version : What bag is one size larger then the LE LT?
08-01-2005, 11:36 AM
I know many people have asked about finding a bag that is a size larger then the LE LT but I'd like ot know if anyone has actually found one that has worked out for them. I wish there was an LT in a bigger size. In almost everyway it is the perfect bag for me. I wish it didn't tip over but that's not a huge deal to me.
I'm going to email LE and ask them about making a larger LT. I doubt they'd do it but I can hope.
I took a look at the Skip Hops the other day, all three types and I know I don't like the DUO its too tall and thin. The other two I'm not sure how much they would fit.
I've looked at 2 red hens and they just aren't my style. Same with any asian brocade prints, I don't care for them.
Any other ideas?

I just went through the same thing and finally decided on the Hanna Anderson Kids Messenger Bag. So far, I love it! The print is fun, it wasn't expensive and it hold everything that I need with a little room to spare. The only thing it doesn't have is a place specifically for a cup/bottle. The side pocket is okay, but I generally just tuck a sippy inside. Good luck with your search.

Try the LLBean Large Touring Travel bag. It reminds me a lot of the LT but is actually big enough and doesn't tip over. It holds everything and then some but isn't huge or bulky. It is also the most organized bag I have ever seen.

That's the big question that doesn't seem to have a good answer. I've been searching for months. I'm using a Ellington small
In-flight bag right now. I love the organization but it's sticks out from the body too much and has tote handles. I have got to get a bag with one long strap for Winter because tote handles don't work well with coats (at least for me) I've been looking online at the LL Bean large Touring bag(which isn't pictured on the website just the small one is) and I have been looking at the Skip Hop Dash. I'm afraid both would be too big though. If I wasn't such a procrastinator I'd make my own but I know it wouldn't hold up as well as a canvas or nylon bag would.

I had the LLBean large touring bag at home and it was too big for me. The small is about the same size as the LE LT.

The LL Bean touring bag looks promising. I need to do a search to see if anyone has posted pictures of the large one to get an idea of how big is it.
I have the LE Deluxe diaper bag so I don't need something that big.
If anyone has real life pics of teh large touring bag I'd love to see them!

Just remembered one more I'm thinking about. http://www.ebags.com/timbuk2/cargo_tote_small/product_detail/index.cfm?modelid=48078 Not sure about the colors though.I like that it comes with a shoulder strap too.

How about the Fleurville Sling Tote? I wasn't using a LT before, but my everday bag was the LE small tote-- which I liked, but it was a tad too small. The ST is a little bit bigger and is the perfect everyday bag for me. I love how versatile it is (tote, messenger, or stroller bag). I highly recommend it.
