Can anyone tell me the difference between the Medela Pump in Style Professional and the Traveler? I like the look of the backpack much better, but's it $100 more on the affordable-breast-pump page, as well as knox. Is the only difference the way it looks?

the motor for the traveller is removable from the backpack, so you can leave the motor at work and just carry the bag. the professional model does not have a removable motor, so you're lugging the whole thing around everytime.

You should be able to find a better price for the traveller. Mine only cost $15- $20 more than the one in the bag at Mimi Maternity / Pea in the Pod. I have to carry so much into work every day that the backpack has been worth every penny.

It's true that when you buy them at regular price, the Traveler is only about $10 more, but at knoxbreastfeeding.com you can get the regular one for $189 but the Traveler still costs $279. Has anyone seen it for cheaper??
