I need to buy a good, safe, everyday walking/travel bag. I need to make sure it's not too big to take into museums, and will be using it as my purse. I don't necessarily have a preference between a crossbody bag or small backpack, but can't tell which brand has the best bags (Safepac, Travelon, etc). Suggestions? Also, what size should I buy, so that I won't have to check it at museums?
Also, my husband will be carrying a small camera bag with very nice camera equipment - are there any museums that will make us check our bags?
Thanks so much for your help!!
