Well from one mama of three young boys to another :biggrin: I prefer the City, purely because of the shoulder strap. Of course you can fit more into the Work but I find it's too hard to manage a hand held bag and wrangle kiddos at the same time :smile:

Have you thought about a courier? - lots of mums swear by this bag...

I have both and while I can fit the handles of the Work over my shoulder, I find the it a bit cumbersome. The City is nice because it has the shoulder strap.
The Day is another good option.

I'm constantly amazed by how silverfern manages to squeeze in stuff for 3 boys into a City :biggrin:

IF it's between a Work and a City, I'd pick the City - the shoulder strap makes it a lot easier for you to manage. While the Work holds more, it can be a pain keeping in on your shoulder when you're wrestling with 3 boys.

Courier - great option in that you can wear it messenger-style and it sits on you securely... but I hate how it becomes this large ball when you stuff it up.

I used to use the Weekender when my daughter was younger (and had more stuff) - it was great because it always stayed on my shoulder, even when I was grappling with her, and stayed nicely slouchy and not too bulky, even when I put a lot of stuff in it. I thought it looked great. Now that my daughter is older (and has less stuff), I find that the Day is brilliant.

a bigger bag would be better for your 3 children as I am sure you have to carry quite a lot of stuff!
have you considered day or courier, they are so easy to wear (hands free) and have much room inside =)
or what about the PT? I love the longer handles and longer strap of the PT.

I have 3 kids young. Wondered which one is a more useful bag for everyday!
I would use more the work if I had more than one kid, can be easily be worn on your shoulder and of course much more roomy than the city ..:smile:

IS PART TIME bigger than the CITY? I'm so not sure which one to get!! WORK, PT, or CITY! Instead of the DAY bags i wanted to start off with a classic bag for my first BAL bag like the WORK, CITY, oR PT! What do you think I should do!

The PT is bigger than the City. My vote's for the Work -- it doesn't have the strap, but it fits more comfortably on the shoulder and can hold more. It's pretty much a bigger version of the City (sans bunny ear zippers). Here are some threads with similar topics, good luck with your decision! :smile:

I prefer the look and style of the CITY bag over the part-time. PT is just too east-west looking for me (I feel like I look fat with it LOL) it looks great on tall skinny gals though.

Work is nice - but it is a pain to keep it on the crook of the arm or shoulder. The strap that is on the city is like gold when you need it!
