Default hands free purse that doesn't look like a tourist?

I'd love to find a hands free purse that doesn't make me look like a tourist. It needs to be big enough to carry my wallet, cell phone, some toiletries and medications, sunglasses and sometimes a water bottle. I'm open to backpacks, waistpacks, and cross-body styles. Does anything exist that doesn't make me look like a college student or a tourist or a soccer mom?

I've seen some across the body bags made by Coach (or Coach knock-offs) that look pretty fashionable, but they may not meet your last requirement (not looking like a soccer mom).

I found this very hard to do a few months back, as there were few small bags that would take my medication. I ended up getting a multi-pocket organiser bag off Ebay.

Have you looked at Bagalinni bags? I'm not sure if I spelled that right. I have several and like them. I think they look a little touristy but they are nicely organizable. I think I have 3.

I hate purses generally, but if I must wear one I have a little backpack.

If it's not the little backpack it's a cheapie black one from Wal Mart that sports much metal lol.

Run an eye over the ones at Goodwill. You may find one in there! You never know!

I bought a backpack purse from ebags.com some years back that's nicely sleek and not too enormous. I think the one I have is by Osgoode Marley, though they only have it in black just now.

I have a Baggalini cross body. I keep a iPad, wallet, glasses case, iPhone (and coiled charging cord), lip balm, small tin for vitamins, pen and notebook, hair sticks, small brush. I can get a rolled shirt in, so a small, slender water bottle could fit....but I think I get too close to weight limit with my glass bottle.
It could say traveller but not so much tourist, and a different fabric would counter that. Mine is a browned grey.

Have you thought of messenger bags?

I recently found a bag by Lily Bloom in Marshalls in a print called Bliss (allegedly Lily Bloom a sub-line of an R brand that I can't remember right now, but the brand is known for making bags with extras like wallets and lights and lots of storage...rossalini maybe?)

Anyway, it's made out of recycled water bottles, and although I bought the smaller version, it fits my phone, ereader, keys, random bits of makeup, and stack of various cards. Plus, the fabric is pretty durable and water resistant, but is easily cleaned with a damp cloth.

Any purse really, I'm fond of wearing "hand bags" on my shoulder lol. I just put the straps on my shoulder and the bag sits right under/behind my arm. Like this: http://www.funscrape.com/Image/10646...er+Garner.html

Now I use a tiny backpack, which I love.
