I have the lands end backpack. I think it could be better, there isn't much for organization. Which I need and love. Are there any backpacks that are not huge and have good organization???

My old bag is the Avent Kit bag (backpack), which has a ton of interior and exterior pockets. I also like the fact that the lining is light, making it easy to find stuff.

I did, however, just purchase the Fleurville Alpha 7 (discontinued) Haven't used it yet, since baby #2 isn't here yet, and I don't carry a diaper bag anymore for my 3 year-old. I wanted something that could be both a shoulder bag/messenger bag and a backpack, and the Avent Kit bag can't do both. And I just wanted something new. I picked up a Kecci to check it out, but find that it doesn't have enough organizational capacity to suit my needs. That's my limited experience!

i just posted below in the topic 'toddler diaperbag'... i just bought a backpack diaperbag off ebags for $34 (Skyline). it's nothing fancy, but keeping me very organized. i compared it to several others, and the size is nice, not too big not too small. it also has tons of positive reviews on the site.

I like my dakine helix. If you do a search, you should find a review and pics I posted about a month ago.

I have a Kelty Kids backpack that I love....I am not sure about the newer ones but I love the older one I have, the three ways to carry it is great!!! I like the organization too. HTHs!

Is this the chester type bag that is good? I found these on the sale part of the website and like the look just wish I had some pictures of the inside. Does anyone have pictures? I would really appreciate it!!!!!

Its in the sale section and I'm looking at the black backpack with the pink stripe.

I actually have the black with pink strip backpack. I really like it - it's light weight and holds a lot. And I really liked the pink strip because it doesn't look like a diaper bag and looks a little sporty so I can use it for other stuff (like going to the gym) too. That being said, there isn't much organization inside. There are 2 bottle pockets and otherwise it's one big space. It's black inside so if you don't like the black hole effect, that may be something to consider. But I haven't had too much problem with it and can find everything I need. The front has a smaller zip pocket which I usually put my mommy stuff. I used my backpack for quick trips and when I go strolling with the baby. Hope that helps!

Thanks, While I was searching last night I found this chester backpack on ebay and its a pattern that I haven't seen. Anyway I thought it would be cute for this summer so I bid on it for $24 and won to my surprise. Anyway hopefully I like it, I think it was a good deal!!!
Thanks for the info.
