Rated 4 out of 5 by NYCmomma Surprised at how much I like this diaper bag!
Someone gave me this bag as a gift. It wasn't on my registry and I was surprised at how much I love it!
The durable cordura canvas is water repellant and comes in great graphic prints as well as classic solids.
I love the magnetic pockets (no loud velcro to startle LO!) and the mesh side pouch actually holds my nalgene water bottle, which is a bonus!
The stroller clip-on feature is also great, for when the under-basket of our stroller is too full with groceries or some such.
Two things I don't love (why I gave 4/5 stars):
-There is an included changing pad, but no wipes case, so you'll have to add your own.
-I wish the main compartment could zip closed. When riding the subway, I have to keep an extra eye on the bag (my phone and wallet are in there!) to make sure nothing spills out or gets snatched.
Otherwise, it's a solid and sturdy design, with lots of functionality and pretty cute as well!

Rated 1 out of 5 Dreadful Diaper Bag!
I've been using this bag for 10 months now, and I am finally so fed up with it, that I am compelled to write a review to save others from this silly, poorly designed product. When I was registering for my baby shower, all signs pointed to this bag as the one to register for. It's super popular, you can get it in black or a number of other nice-looking colors and patterns, it's well priced, etc.. But don't be fooled! It's terrible as a diaper bag! Here's why:
1. It doesn't stand up on its own unless it's full. It's narrow at the bottom, so you've got a bag that's toppling over all the time! Just what you want when you have a child happily asleep in your arms, and you need to collect your things artfully and gracefully. And even if it's full, it becomes top heavy very easily, and still falls over.
2. It doesn't stay open. Before you have your baby it may be hard to imagine this, but you will be doing nearly everything one-handed nearly all the time. So if you can't easily reach into your diaper bag while cradling your bundle of joy in the other arm, it will drive you crazy! Plus, even if you do manage to reach that burp cloth with one hand, you'll likely topple the bag over as you do, as it's so unstable.
3. It's too small! As a cloth diapering mama, this bag was too small for me before I even got an extra onesie in it. And because it's tall and narrow, you have to take out everything at the top to get to the things at the bottom. I felt like we exploded everywhere we went for a few months, and it took us forever to pack up.
4. The bag and its strap are not designed well for the a new mom's curvy shape. It bounces about as I walk in a most uncomfortable and unflattering way.
Seriously, this bag drives me nuts. Unless you're planning to hitch it to your stroller and never ever carry it on its own, find another bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great bag, maybe too many pockets!
This is a great diaper bag. Simply designed, my husband doesn't mind carrying it. It has lots of compartments inside and outside for various baby items. So many that things do sometimes go missing. Still looks new after a year. Clips neatly onto stroller handle. Best feature is that when I lost the strap while traveling I could order a replacement. Good buy.

This bag holds everything you need for two kids, and is easy to keep organized. That is no small feat with small children. The stroller clips are handy too. It is well made and takes a lot of abuse gracefully. Diaper bags can get gross quickly and this bag is very easy to keep clean. Well designed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AverysMomma Maybe for an older baby
I did not like this bag for a newborn. When I put items in the top zip pockets, it was very hard to get/see into the large middle section of the bag. After putting a couple changes of clothes, burp clothes, diapers and all the diapering creams, etc., there wasn't any room for much else. Frustrating not having room for even a blanket. I put this bag in the closet for when my daughter is older and won't have so much stuff for her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wickerparkmom functional but boring
works well -- holds everything in an organized fashion -- but not the most stylish product.

Rated 3 out of 5 Goon enough bag
Never having used another diaper bag, I don't have a comparison. We received this bag as a gift for my husband actually since it is gender neutral. It works great to stash many things and seems to endure the use of both myself and my husband as well as the nanny (and our daughter who loves to drag it around.) The draw string on the bottle holder fell out after its first use which is annoying. Overall it is a good dependable bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by talltxmama Practical and cute
Incredibly practical and cute (but not cutesy -- an important distinction when it comes to diaper bags!). I love how large all the pockets and compartments are -- it fits a ton of stuff and is organized enough that I can find everything easily. It holds up well (we've split all sorts of things on/in it and it cleans with just a simply wipe down). The style is also gender neutral, so my husband will carry it without complaint.
