I have found the perfect diaper bag! It fits everything on my crazy packing list (check it out here), with some room left. First, I highly recommend a backpack style diaper bag. I have a few different diaper bags, and the backpack style is by far the best design. When you have the standard purse/shoulder bag, it tends to fall off while walking or every time you bend over. This can be a huge hassle while you are holding your baby and trying to balance everything else in your arms.

This bag is the perfect size. It’s smaller than some of the other backpack style bags I’ve seen, but this means it is easier to manage. It fits well under the table at restaurants, in between the captains chairs in my car, and even by your feet on an airplane. Any bigger of a design would be inconvenient, and honestly not necessary. A smaller bag would not fit all of the items I compulsively feel the need to bring on all outings. The actual dimensions are 17” x 8” x 10.3”.
It has two side pockets for drinks, water bottles, coffee cups, etc. There are multiple interior pockets for smaller items so they don’t sink to the bottom of the bag. It has very comfortable straps, and my husband doesn’t feel like it is too girly for him to carry.
The opening is very large and it gives you the option of zipping it up fully, or just using the snap to latch the handles together. I have used this second options a handful of times, usually when I overstuff the bag and the zipper is hard to close.
The bag comes with two stroller straps and a 14”x23” changing mat. The stroller straps are super convenient and makes it so easy to hook to the stroller handle if you don’t feel like wearing it on your back or putting it in the stroller basket.
The quality has been very impressive so far. The zippers are very strong and the stitching has not begun to fray at all. I have it in grey and it is a nice canvas material that seems to be pretty water resistant. I’ve walked through the rain with it and everything inside is still perfectly dry.
The wipe pocket is less than desirable. It is hard to open the wipe container and pull out wipes through the zipper, but this is okay with me since I don’t keep wipes in this compartment. I prefer to keep the wipes in a small travel bag along with the diapers and diaper cream.
If you overstuff the front pocket, the magnetic button doesn’t like to stay closed. This has an easy solution though – don’t overstuff the front pocket. Sometimes I get lazy and don’t feel like unzipping the top but that is a personal problem, not an issue with the product.
I’ve read that the insulated bottle department doesn’t fit the 8oz Dr. Brown’s bottles (they are taller than most 8oz bottles). It does fit with a few other 8oz bottles, but I personally use the 4oz Dr. Brown’s bottles and these work great.
This bag definitely has the best design out of all of the ones I’ve tried. It is laid out well and is made from high quality materials. I have received multiple compliments on this bag from other moms. The arrows provide a cute design, without making the bag too feminine or making it scream “diaper bag”. I would definitely purchase this bag again.
