Roomy

This is a nice bag, it feels like good quality. It is extremely roomy, it’s our “out all day” bag. I almost feel like I’m carrying a piece of luggage. The material reminds me of those carry on bags that you get in a luggage set.I don’t like the regular shoulder straps, they are hard and uncomfortable, and they tend to fall off your shoulder when the bag is full.The bag itself is nice quality, it looks a lot better when it’s not so packed, otherwise it becomes very round and bulky. And like I said if it’s full, you can forget about those regular shoulder straps, because it’s gonna fall right off if you are trying to maneuver holding your child too. In the pictures with the models, it’s not full at all. Thank goodness for the adjustable messenger strap.It has a lot of deep and roomy pockets which I really like. I initially bought it to use as my everyday purse/diaper bag put into one, but it’s way too bulky. I ended up buying the Skip Hop Versa Bag in black for that and I am absolutely in love with that one! We will just use this bag for all day events where we need to bring a lot of stuff for the baby.

Perfect for cloth diapers or multiple kids!

I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old. This bag is perfect for cloth diapers, wipes, wetbags, snacks, beverages, change of clothes for each and room enough for all the things I need. Plus, it looks much more stylish than any of the diaper bags I’ve had before (without being “designer” $100+ bags like jujubee or ppb). It wipes clean and the clips that came with it are perfect for attaching to a grocery cart for extra room or attaching to a stroller. I would recommend this to any mom looking for a new diaper bag.

Cute, not durable enough for me.

First, it’s adorable. Completely my style, and I get compliments on it regularly. The stroller clips are a fantastic feature (just don’t overload the bag, so you avoid the stroller tipping backward.) I wish more bags were wide like this one, instead of deep. The most useful pockets are the outer ones (not the zipper ones, the ones behind where the straps attach. They’re large, but structured; deep, but easy to get into.Ultimately though, I should have sprung for a more expensive, higher quality bag. I loved it for the first 4 months, but the issue with the straps fraying where they meet the bag needs to be solved – it looks awful, and is what I would expect from a $30 bag. I also wish the interior were more structured and less soft – things seem to get lost in the pockets because the sides of the bag aren’t sturdy and everything slumps together. The changing pad is great at first, but once you wash it (which I hope you do…) it loses its structure and is hard to fold, and very hard to fit into an interior pocket. The outer pockets zipper pockets are so small, they’re practically useless. I think I can fit a single teething ring into one, but that’s about it. Pockets for sippies/bottles are nice, although short ones get lost and are hard to remove. Taller cups work great.

Great bag

Bought this after seeing at target. Was my big splurge this pregnancy to have something cute and not too girly my husband would hate carrying. Great quality and stroller hooks are awesome

Very cute diaper bag, but the part that holds the handles shows wear quickly.

I really love the way this bag looks! It has great pockets all over and the inside! But, the handle loops that connect to the handle are wearing out quickly and it did not come with the messenger bag strap. I contacted the company and they said I could send it back, but then I’m without a bag for a week or more.

Nice bag, too small

I really like this diaper bag. I own the black version which is great for avoiding stains and matching with outfits. The outer pockets are excellent and I love using one side pocket for a water bottle and one for my cellphone. It is durable and well made. However, we are a cloth diapering family and the inside does not hold as much as I would like which is why I dropped it down a star. But I still love it and have adapted to cloth diapering and using it!Edit: In the 9 months that I used this bag, every single zipper pull broke off and both straps completely snapped. I really liked this bag, but I am very disappointed in the quality of it. It should have lasted a lot longer. I would not purchase it again.

favorite diaper bag

When I got pregnant with my second child I started looking for a new (and bigger) diaper bag. This one is perfect. It’s super cute and a great size for all of baby, toddler and mommy’s things. My oldest isn’t potty trained yet, and I was worried about finding a bag big enough for two sets of diapers/clothes. I put diapers, creams and wipes in two of the side pockets along with the included diaper pad. On the other side I have a small first aid kit, cosmetic case, hand sanitizer, etc. There is more than enough room in the middle for my pocket book, sunglasses, snacks and any toys that I need to bring along. I can keep a coupon book or any other paper work for doctors visits, school, etc. in the outer pockets.Lastly I just love the color and style of the bag, I have gotten a lot of compliments on it! Anyone looking for a big bag with lots of storage pockets should definitely take a look at this bag.

Nice bag but color is misrepresented

I ordered the Aspen Arbor color (green and creme) but once I received this bag from Amazon, it was clear that what I thought would be a creme color was actually more of a grey color. It wasn’t quite what I expected but I had read a previous review from another buyer who had the same complaint, so I wasn’t too surprised. Other than that, the bag is pretty nice. It’s a large bag with lots of pockets which is very convenient. The interior is roomy and it comes with a fold-up changing pad. I really liked that it came with an attachable padded shoulder strap and stroller straps. The only thing I don’t care for is that there is no zippered pocket inside which I’ve become very accustomed to having in my purses and other diaper bags. There are pockets inside but they aren’t structured and don’t close up so once they are full, they tend to sag into the middle of the bag. This isn’t a deal breaker for me but may be for other people.

Love it!

I am in love with this bag. I also own a jj cole swag diaper bag and this one holds twice as much, so it’s on the big side, but without the ‘big, bulky bag’ look. The only reason I am giving this a 4 rating is because the material on the top portion has a cheaper look to it and the zippers are a little sticky to use. I was concerned about the 4 outer pockets being useless because they don’t have any way to secure the items inside, but they are very deep and even my large wallet fits inside without being seen. I wish it had a key clip for easy access, but the small pockets on the front will work for keys. The green color is beautiful ( I got aspen arbor). I was afraid it would be a bright green, but this is a very wearable green color. The messenger strap that came with it is very nice and padded. The changing pad is nothing special, but I use a different pad anyway. I haven’t used this bag yet, so I don’t know how well it will hold up, but I’m not concerned since I have two other jj cole bags and they have been great!

My favorite out of about 8 bags I’ve tried

My son is 15 months old, and I’ve tried many diaper bags over the last year. I previously declared the JJ Cole Mode bag my favorite, but after it didn’t suffice for a day long trip to grandma’s I decided to check this bag out. It kept catching my eye on the shelves at babies R us, and gets great reviews.So glad I got it, I love it. Its amazing how much the bag can hold and not feel bulky. I love the pockets in the front on both sides, and the inside is very roomy.I’m an over packer and I use this as a purse as well… so just to give you an idea of ALL the THINGS this bag can hold-The bag has 2 “slide” pockets on each side (4 total), on one side I keep baby face n hand wipes in one pocket, and in the other is hand sanitizer, pacifier wipes, and a travel pack of boogie wipes. On the other side is mommy stuff: phone, wallet, and keys in one pocket and a small notebook with a pen in the other. I can also fit my kindle fire in one of these slide pockets. There is also 2 small zipper pockets, in one I keep a small camera. In the other is my ipod shuffle, headphones, and more mom stuff: hair ties, chapstick, nail clippers, bottle of advil etc.There is also an insulated bottle pocket on one side and an extra pocket on the other that would fit a smaller bottle, sippy cup, or water bottle. I keep an extra pair of shoes and socks in the extra pocket.This is all just the outside of the bag!!!On the inside there are 4 large pockets. One holds extra clothes for my son, another is for diapers, wipes, diaper cream, and disposable messy diaper bags. Another pocket holds toys, a pacifier, and snacks and the last one holds more mom stuff, tissues, pads, deodorant, first aid kit, medicine etc. This leaves plenty of room in the inside of the bag even when the pockets are full. I keep a mealtime kit, changing pad, wet bag, more snacks, an empty bottle, and a small blanket in the middle of the bag. With all this I still have room for any extras like a warm hoodie, a board book, extra shoes, hat..whatever I might need for the trip.The bag comes with a shoulder strap and stroller clips. There is a changing pad included but its very cheap. I think for the price they could of included a nicer pad. The bag itself seems of good quality and sturdy. I get a lot of compliments and my husband doesn’t mind carrying it. I hope it lasts!

Very attractive but poorly constructed

I registered for and received this bag as a baby shower gift. I get compliments on the appearance of this bag almost every day but I wouldn’t recommend it to a friend. I’ve used this for six months and within the first month the pockets on the inside loss all their elasticity. And I don’t overstuff this thing because I’m an on the go person and don’t like to carry a lot of things. All I have in there is the changing pad it came with, the white Huggies travel wipes container, like 5 diapers, a nursing cover, two burp rags and a blanket. Then the stitch that separates the pockets came undone to the halfway point making those “pockets” useless. Now the straps are showing age with white strands hanging and the loop with the metal ring is starting to peel. Now I’m in the market for a new bag.The only good thing about this bag is the multitude of pockets on the outside, 8. I keep my wallet, phone and all that jazz on the outside so I don’t have to dig through the bag for my stuff. If I had paid for it myself I’d be pissed. There are better options out there for the price. It’s such a shame because I adore the look of the bag and it passes as my purse easily.

Organized, easy access, well made

I love the style of this bag, but more importantly it is well organized with 8 exterior pockets & 4 interior pockets & a large open area inside. I have everything packed in with easy access and room to spare. The fabric is sturdy similar to luggage fabric so it will stand up to lots of use. The shoulder strap & handles make grabbing it & carrying it easy. It is fairly light, even packed. The stroller hangers are an excellent idea. Over all I am very happy with this bag!

It was great for the first few months.

After having my second baby, I decided I needed a new diaper bag. I needed it as a primary bag/purse for my stuff as well. I was also looking for a lot of room, but a bag with compartments. It’s perfect because it has tons of room for diapers/wipes/extra clothes, snacks, my wallet, keys etc. and it’s stylish without being too obnoxious. My favorite part about the bag is the fact that it hooks onto the stroller. Definitely recommend this product.EDIT: Extremely disappointed because the stroller straps ripped just 4 months after I started using the bag, also the bag it starting to look smashed down a bit, well I spent $50 on it, so I’ll be keeping it for a while, but I might have been better off with one of the super good quality $100 bags I was considering.

Awesome bag!

I’m still waiting for the kiddo to arrive in June, but wanted to have a purse for my birthday in February anyway, so I’ve been using it as my daily purse/laptop bag. The size is perfect, the interior is bright green so I don’t lose things in the "black hole" that usually is my purse. The only thing I wish it had more of is zippered interior pockets. I guess that preference might change once I have the kiddo and use the bag for baby gear, but I definitely have to be careful just throwing something small in the bag since it might fall out of the pocket and end up floating around in the big middle space. Otherwise, great quality, color/pattern, and have gotten compliments on it as a purse (not a diaper bag).

Diaper bag

This is a really nice diaper bag. I love the green color and design, I get a lot of compliments about it. It’s roomy with tons of pockets inside and out. I like that it fully zips so nothing falls out. Plus jj cole products are awesome, I love the stroller clips that came with this bag. It’s one of the main reasons I went with jj cole bag. They make it a snap, literally , to put the diaper bag on the stroller handle bars freeing up room in the basket for other baby items. Would buy again, wish I had it for the first two.

Cute Bag

I looked around a lot before my baby came for the perfect diaper bag, and I liked this one the best. I love the gray pattern and it has lots of room and I like all the pockets. It’s big, but that’s what I was expecting. It seems well made and of good material.I would recommend this.

Fits every piece of baby gear!

First the bag is beautiful and sturdy. It has lots of pockets inside and out and the bag is long and wide rather than narrow and tall, which makes it harder to find everything at the bottom. Material is easy to wipe down and I love the fact there are other matching items for purchase. I am able to fit the newborn stuff and my toddler’s stuff in the bag.

Well…

I LOVE this diaper bag. Seriously. This was my "Mommy gift" after a pretty horrendous pregnancy and hospital stay. I love the style, the features, everything about this bag. The only thing I don’t like, is how after not even a year of use (barely any, I’m a new twin mom! I don’t get out much!) the edges around the metal are cracking. I know this wasn’t a super expensive bag, but I was disappointed to have it crack like that after not even using it much.

Love it!

Very nice bag. I love the way it looks. It is large but I needed a large bag. It fits everything I need for two little ones. Also I love all the pockets so everything stays pretty organized. I have had several diaper bags, this is probably my favorite so far!

I spent months looking for this bag!

I finally found the perfect bag for me!! I’m cloth diapering so there is plenty of space/pockets on the inside to pack clean dipes and wipes and a wet bag for the dirties as well as room for extra outfits and blankets. The style is cute and modern and i love the stroller hooks to hook it to the stroller handle bars. Also the messenger style strap is a comfy necessary must!!

I love this bag!

Bag is the perfect size for everything I need for myself and baby. I love the straps for the stroller, I use them at the grocery store and it saves me a lot of space. This bag looks great and makes a great purse as well.

Cute and Functional

This is my 2nd baby bag purchase. My first bag was a popular designer baby bag brand that was pretty large in size. But it wasn’t large enough for me. I carry a lot of stuff when I go out – from disposable bibs and placemats to snacks and bottles, not just diapers and wipes. Seriously, you would laugh if you saw all the things I carry in my diaper bag. I’m one of those people that plans for the "what ifs" that usually never happen. :)This bag carries is all! Its huge! But not big enough to where it would be awkward. All the different pockets makes it easy to organize all your stuff and not have to spend time trying to fish something out of your bag. Not to mention it is a super cute design. I get compliments on the bag all the time. Considering what I paid for my other bag, this one is sooooo worth its price. I love this diaper bag.

That’s a Diaper Bag?

I chose this diaper bag because it’s super functional, yet looks more like a purse than a diaper bag. I cloth diaper, so space is important, and this bag fits the bill. I can also neatly organize my "purse items" in the smaller pockets, and when it’s not stuffed full of diapers, I can use it as a computer bag. Win, win, win. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish it were about an inch or two deeper.

Poor Quality

I loved the look, size, and layout of this bag. I would have loved it forever, but after just 3 months of use the seams along all 4 corners ripped wide open, and I mean 6-8 inch rips. It is now totally unusable. Considering the price of this bag, the quality is unacceptable and makes this bag a horrible value. If you want something stylish for occasional light us, then be my guest, but if you want something you can use several times a week then forget it.

Not the Color in the Photo

This bag is much darker than in the photo. The green is much darker, and the gray-stone color is actually more beige. I’m not happy with the colors and am sending it back.

Questionable durability; attractive design

We got this bag to replace a JuJuBee BFF bag that was too small to carry all the essentials for two kids. The JJ Cole bag is significantly larger and less expensive, and fits our needs better. Some draw backs compared to JuJuBee include the following:-Cheap, flimsy changing pad-Plastic zippers (JuJuBee’s are metal)-Not machine washable-Not anti-microbialThat being said, this bag is about half the cost of the JuJuBee.UPDATE: 6/22/2013After using this item for less than 6 months it is starting to fall apart. The top zipper seam has separated across a 2 inch area, and more stitching around a rivet on the front pocket has come loose. We will be sending it back to JJ Cole for a replacement. It’s good they warranty the item, but I would recommend paying a little more for something higher quality. I’d rather spend the extra money for the JuJuBee and not have to worry about the JJ Cole that is falling apart.

Cute, functional and still looking great after a year!

I’ve had 3 different diaper bags now and this is by far my favorite. It’s wider than the others i’ve had so i can actually see whats in it without having to dig around. It has 4 pockets on the inside and a a bunch on the outside (4 bigger ones, 2 smaller cup or bottle size ones on the side and the two smaller zippered ones on the front) so everything has its place. I can put everything i need for a day out with my 15 month old and 1 month old in it fine and i like that it comes with stroller straps, crossbody strap and purse straps so you can wear it anyway you desire. When this bag finally wears out i’ll be buying another one of them for sure!

Excited to Use This

Since I am not finding out the gender of my baby, I struggled with finding something that was colorful, yet still neutral enough to be used for either gender. The green color is even better in person. I like that this is a large bag with several pockets to keep things organized. It seems to me that it is good quality, but having not been able to utilize this bag yet, I can only hope that bag will live up to its price and my expectations.
