Question Help with diaper bag for day trips - what do you use?

What diaper bag works well for cloth diapers? We had been using the Skip Hop Via Messenger bag with disposables, which was great (not huge, not too girly) - but there's just not enough room for cloth!

My son (2.5 months) wants to be changed right away after he pees (he cries). Today during a 2 hour outing I changed him 4 times. I never leave the house with less than 4 diapers, prefer 6. We have BG Flips, BG 4.0s, and BG Elementals - try to travel with Flips to save space. Other than diapers, we try to pack pretty light - wipes, wet bag, 1 extra outfit, pacifier, burp cloth, changing pad, hand sani, small flannel blanket, keys, phone, wallet.

Any suggestions? Bonus if it's something my husband will carry too!

~small first aid kit, includes bandaids, spray neosporin, hand sanitizer.
~8 diaper changes usually pockets/AIO at least one flat/pf w/cover
~2 wet bags
~2 changes of clothes for DD
~disposable wipes
~container with: 2 pacifiers, CJ's butter, pin, snappi
~nursing cover
~2 small contaners with entertainment for boys: small paper, few crayons, stickers, one car
~2 granola bars, 2 boxes of raisins
~my stuff: wallet, phone, tablet.
~bottle water
~changing pad

I keep two dipes in my bag and the rest in my car. Would that help?

After going through two other diaper bags, I finally went with this type...
http://reviews.landsend.com/2008/219...ws/reviews.htm

LandsEnd had a return anytime for any reason policy. Plus it doesn't have that extra price tag that all baby supplies come with.

I normally carry.

4 diapers
Wipes
Change of clothes
Wet bag
Mommy supplies
2 water bottles

I am using now for a trip and also added a lunch box, blanket, hat, shoes, toys...

It really is the best quality of other bags I have tried.

I use a tote bag form 31. This has worked well for me and I have two in cloth diapers so I have extra diapers. I also keep a bag in my car with cloth diapers, extra liners, snacks, change of clothes, etc in it.

I know you didn't ask but your child is still young and doesn't like to be wet, have you considered doing EC (elimination communication) part-time? Kids that don't like to be wet are prime candidates
