Hello everyone!

I've been traveling a lot lately with my family of 4. I'm in charge of the passports, boarding passes, sightseeing & navigation. Which means I need a bag with an easy access outside pocket to put maps & boarding passes (and still keep my wallet inside my bag).

Strap drop also plays an important role. It should have an 8 to 10" drop

Of late I can't find popular designers' bags that meet my criteria.

Makes me wonder if these bag designers travel at all or do they have people to get things for them? The least they can do is give us an extra outside pocket for the amount of money we are paying for the bags. :sad:

Help!

Rebecca Minkoff's Matinee bag is chocked full of pockets! I have this bag and did not realize how many pockets there were when I bought it.

It has 2 open pockets at each end that are fairly deep, a zip pocket at each end under the flap, and on each side, 2 pockets- one unzipped, one zipped.

thanks for the replies everyone - keep em coming!!!

i want to have as many options as possible. Although I do tend to gravitate towards big name designer brands.

I hope I can find THE ONE...

how are Prada messengers anyways? I'm still waiting for them to come out with a more feminine design & not a unisex one.

Thanks again!

I'm the mother of 2-year-old twin boys. My handbag was recently stolen, so I just went through the quest you are going through right now and it's difficult! I found the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Camp on sale at Neiman Marcus and grabbed it because it fit all my criteria.

It has a really big outside pocket on each side. You can grab/stuff things in and out of them without needing to mess with zippers or snaps. It has a long drop strap and stays on my shoulder while I have two-year-olds tugging my arms in opposite directions. And the pebbled leather wears/cleans well.

Good luck,
Wendy
