PARENT RATING – A
As a parent who is always on the go, whether it be to the grocery store, road trip or cross country flight, this bag always comes in handy.
First, the bag is stylish and hides the fact that it is a diaper bag.
Second, and more importantly, the bag works! It is large which allows you to be able to fit all the necessities plus some. I fly a lot. Sometimes on airlines that don’t allow carry-ones, like Spirit. All airlines allow you to bring a diaper bag for free. I cannot tell you how clutch this bag has been for this purpose. When I am flying I get a full container of wipes, ten diapers, disposable changing pads, the changing pad the bag comes with, a backup outfit for my daughter, a bottle/sippy cup, a squeeze pouch, a container of puffs, a bib, toys, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, and then things for me as well, cell phone charger, sunglasses, head phones, etc. The backpack has an insulated side pouch for a bottle or sippy cup. The bottom of the bag is also a separate compartment that is insulated. It has everything you could need for any outing you are going on.
EASE OF USE – A-
Backpacks in general are easier than traditional diaper bags because they allow you to have your hands free. This allows me to carry the baby, push the stroller, etc.
One problem with a lot of diaper bag backpacks is that the straps are not adjustable. This backpack is adjustable! You to make the bag as tight or as loose as you would like. This is great when my husband and I are trading off. He likes to carry the bag very loose, I like it tight on my back, it is able to suit both of our personal needs.
The reason that this bag got an A- and not an A for ease of use is because I have seen bags with sides that give easy access to wipes. I always think of how convenient that would be, however, when I chose this bag, I wanted a bag that did not scream “Diaper Bag”! Wipes hanging out of the side is a dead give-away, so I still prefer this bag.
OVERALL PRODUCT GRADE – A
I am obsessed with this bag. I have gotten so much use out of it. As I drive from LA to Yosemite National Park while typing this, I have this bag sitting beside me filled with everything I need and I couldn’t be happier. I will use this bag until I completely destroy it and then I will get another one.
(Proof my husband even loves this bag! So convenient, he can hold the baby and his coffee and not worry about the diaper bag!)
