Rated 3 out of 5 by Abigail Quality is so-so First, let me say I love how the bag is organized. Other moms have looked in my diaper bag and reacted in amazement because everything has a place. I love that everything wipes clean on the inside. And the front compartment keeps all of my "mom" things organized perfectly- wallet, cell phone, etc. A few minor issues I have with it- I wish the changing pad was a little longer. I wish it came with a wipes case designed to fit into one of the pockets. And I find that when the bag is full (which is all the time), the shoulder straps are too short, so I have to always use it as a messenger bag. My biggest issue with this bad is the quality. The stroller straps on the first bag I received were not sewn properly. The first time i opened the velcro, the velcro just pulled off of the straps. Giggle replaced it immediately. Now with the second bag, the cooler lining in the bottle compartment on the outside of the bag has ripped away from the bag- it looks like another sewing issue. I've never even used this compartment, so I don't believe it was user error. It's unfortunate that the quality is lacking for the price. Because I'm not relying on the bottle pocket, and the rest of the bag has stayed together nicely, I didn't want to return this one and wait for another one. But I probably won't buy another product from this company. March 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Thank GOD for this bag! At first, I thought "that's too expensive." Now, I realize it was WORTH EVERY PENNY! Firstly-the interior is light--this makes it amazingly easy to find stuff in there. (I thought this was such a no-brainer that it must be light in ALL diaper bags...not the case.) Secondly-there are actual pockets in here that actually hold stuff-basically, I know all of my diaper-changing essentials are being kept along the walls of this bag so I can grab them easily. Thirdly, I love that it doesn't look like a "baby" bag--I had a baby, I didn't BECOME a baby so I don't want dorky baby themes all over my diaper bag...and since this has replaced my purse (95% of the time) it's great that there's a separate zipped pouch (plus an extra) just for my stuff/ sunglasses/ wallet/ phone/ anything I want to cram in there...We use the back pouch for our iPad--it fits perfectly in there (with our BRU/BBB coupons, haha) and it's safe. It comes with velcro attchmnts to hook it to the stroller, which are super easy to use. But what's best of all, is that it's truly a unisex bag--my husband will actually wear it and he swears it looks like a man-bag. He keeps threatening to use it when our baby is grown up...provided we keep it poop-free, of course :) December 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect I love this diaper bag. There's a space for everything and the design is so cool that even my husband will carry it. December 11, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 Haven't used it yet- but so cute! I can't give it a 5 star review because I haven't used it yet, but it's so cute. A friend uses it regularly and she loves it. She gushed about how great this bag is you would think somebody paid her. I am still expecting but it's really cute, nice material and I like the different carrying options and the compartments. Totally a great bag. December 11, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 Great for travel and very versatile! I chose this diaper bag because I thought it would be very versatile and my husband would carry (as opposed to something girly or flowery). And it is! It's got plenty of room but not so much room that you can't find anything, has a zipper compartment for your things that is really roomy, and has proved to be an incredible carry on. We travel a lot and this is the perfect size for going under an airplane seat. And the zippered top makes it easy to unzip with one hand. My only complaint is that the shape of it makes it a bit cumbersome when carrying on your shoulder and it's bulky under your arm. December 11, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by giansg Not as I hoped! We purchased this bag when we were expecting our son - we used it as his "going home from the hospital" bag. We placed a cooler pack and snacks in the insulated section. A few hours later I found that my son's going home clothes were soaked! the insulation on my bag did not work at all. I contacted the manufacturer and they replaced with a new one, but even that one didn't seem like it would work for us. December 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Love it! I resisted all diaper bags until I found this one. Its just the right size, has compartments for everything, can handle the day to day and still look great, and works for both parents! Love it. December 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 I wish I had Charlie bag with my first two kids I have been using charlie bag for over a year now after my third child was born. The bag is very well organized. Even considering the fact that I use cloth diapers, there is enough room for everything: cloth diapers, wipes, spare clothes, snacks, wallet, and I never have to dig for anything. This summer we traveled to Europe and we had to take two flights (9 and 2 hours, and 6 hours in between), I had all I needed in this bag, it made our trip so much easier. I like how fast I can attach it to my stroller. I love the little hidden pocket, where I can put my glasses before my daughter breaks them. I would recommend this bag to all my pregnant friends. And I can see myself using Charlie bag long after my baby is out of diapers. September 21, 2012

See what people are asking, and maybe add some answers of your own.
Q:I know this bag also comes in black... do you carry it in black in any of your stores, or can I special order it?
A:giggle is not currently offering the Charlie Diaper Bag in black -- the current "picks" for the Charlie Diaper Bag include Slate and Khaki, two trending classics that let parents accessorize with "pops" of giggle color!
Q:I got this as a gift but don't know how to convert it to a backpack. Any help would be appreciated
A:Use Charlie's detachable strap for messenger, shoulder, or backpack-style carrying! For backpack-style carrying, do the following:
1. Detach the single, adjustable carry strap.
2. Clip one end onto the d-ring located at the lower, back of the bag.
3. Take the loose end and thread it through the chocolate-colored tab that's at the top of the bag near the carry handle.
4. Now clip that loose end onto the other d-ring located at the lower, back of the bag.
5. Adjust the strap to your comfort level!

Q:It's so hard to tell if the straps are gray or brown? Also, do you carry this bag in any of your bay area stores? thanks!
A:Charlie's straps that are built onto the bag are chocolate brown, and Charlie's detachable straps (for messenger, shoulder, or backpack-style carrying) are Slate, the same color as the bag. You can find Charlie at giggle's retail locations nationwide and on giggle.com!
A:giggle is not currently offering the Charlie Diaper Bag in black -- the current "pick" for the Charlie Diaper Bag is a classic, lovely navy blue. Not only does it beautifully coordinate with giggle's exclusive Bugaboo Cameleon in Navy/Off-White, but navy blue has been trending as a preferred color with fashionistas who are clamoring for timeless "classics." Add giggle's SkipHop stripted Pronto and Pacifier Pocket to your favorite diaper bag for an added "pop" of color!
