and has a zippered parent pocket for my wallet and keys?

I really like my dash. But I need a bag that's a bit larger and needs to have a pocket with a zipper for my keys and wallet. The zipper is important! I had a Jessica Bumble Bag, but I sold it- I was always paranoid about my wallet falling out- no zippered pocket.

I prefer messenger style bags with a way of slinging over/attaching to the stroller. Is the sling tote bigger than the dash?

Any ideas?

The Sling Tote is different than the Dash - I'm not sure if it's larger or not. I've played with both in stores, and I found the ST to be kind of awkward. I like the Dash a lot better, but it is on the small side. I'm not sure if that helps at all...

You could try:
1. Skip Hop Expo - I heard it was slightly bigger than the Dash
2. Ju-Ju-Be Be All bag
3. Lexie Barnes Superstar bag (www.lexiebarnes.com) - supposed to be pretty big..
4. Not a lot of interior organization, but there is a large organizational pocket - Timbuk2 medium messenger

How about a medium Timbuk2 messenger w/ an internal divider, or a LeSportSac Deluxe Messenger. Both are bigger than the dash and both have zippered pockets.

I just recieved my Sling Tote that I purchased off swap, so I haven't taken it out yet, but I have packed it. It is the ST with the bottle holder that is not removable. Currently I'm using a Dash which I really like, except for the Velcro and the flap is stiff/difficult to flip back and out of the way.

When I packed the ST, everything that came out of my Dash fit really easily while I had to carefully fit it into the Dash. Does that make sense?!? It seems like it will be easier to access the inside of the ST and it has a little more "give" than the Dash. If you get the ST with the removable bottle holder, I think the inside of the ST would really be larger than the Dash.

Good Luck!

I really like the LeSportSac Deluxe messenger. I've got a valco double and the shoulder straps adjusts so it fits nicely over the handlebar. It has really good organization, the only thing lacking are bottle pockets, but there are 2 cargo slip pockets under the flap that can accomodate sippy cups or small water bottles. And it is machine washable. www.lesportsac.com is having free shipping until the end of October.
