backpack or cross-body bag?

Jump to last reply

I'm debating on what bag to carry for my upcoming trip to France this fall. My last two trips I've taken a leather cross-body bag that fairly well, but it gets heavy with much inside of it and it gets REALLY heavy when I have both my camera and a bottle of water inside of it.

So, I'm considering getting a backpack, which I've never traveled with to Europe before. I'm worried that the security of a backpack won't be as good as my cross-body bag. Does anyone have experience with a backpack? Pros, cons?
