I got the gray version of this backpack when I was expecting my first child. I loved it!!!
I was never a side bag kind of girl and I felt like it would be difficult, painful, and maybe even dangerous to be carrying around an infant and having a bag hang off my shoulder.
Even without carrying a child, when you carry a heavy side bag you start to arch your body to one side to balance it. I would be suffering from back pain just from carrying the bag.
I would imagine myself trying to hold my child and a side bag while reaching for something in the bag or the bag falling off my shoulder and losing grip of my child, it would be a mess!
And with side bags, the storage is all vertical, things get stacked up on each other and lost. Whereas a backpack has more lateral space and can store a little more while being more easily accessible.
The material is waterproof and extremely lightweight, drastically lighter than just about any diaper bag.
It comes with two removable pouches, which they call the insulated cube and the mesh cube, intended for bottle cold storage and fabrics storage.
These rectangular “cubes” can be used for anything, I removed them from my bag and keep the diapers in that section of the bag and instead use them for carrying snacks or certain things depending on my day.
I also love that it has a pocket on each side for bottle storage, one for each of my kids.
I use this backpack every day to carry for two children and myself, it is my purse when I go out with the kids. I really love this thing! I can fit everything we need on an average day.
An added benefit is that its not too feminine either, so my husband can feel comfortable using the same bag when we go out together or if he goes anywhere alone with the kids .
