- Coated canvas
- Attachable strap is adjustable from a drop of 10″ to 22″
Wonderful prints.. SMALL bag.
This bag looks great for so many reasons – I didn’t really look around for another bag since this one seemed to have everything!!!! .. once you really start using it you’ll soon find out that it doesn’t have very much room at all! The velcro strip that holds the changing station closed is super loud! .. it will wake a sleeping baby when you open it.Overall – the bag does the trick.. but not at all worth the $179 that I spent.
Cute, pricey and a little heavy
I use this bag all the time. It is very convenient where the mattress pad is stored. Sometimes I just unzip the changing pad portion, then unfold it out, I have all my changing supplies right in front of me.After adding all your gear, the bag can get heavy due to the coated material. I chose this bag because you can wipe it clean easily, it has a nice pattern, has backpack straps and doesn’t scream diaper bag I think it is a little overpriced for what you get- it doesn’t come with stroller clips (an additional $20) or an insulated bag. There are other stylish brands who do provide both those option and possibly more.I withheld a star for its weight, lack of insulated compartment and for needing to purchase stroller clips.
A bag you’re gonna get compliments on!
I love this bag! The only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the steep price, the dang velcro that is super strong and sticks to everything ruining a lot of my clothing and fraying the seatbelt like straps, and also because I own a lighter fabric which has become dirty due to rubbing against dark jeans, and spilled baby food. Even though the material is waterproof be careful because it can stain. Also, the company does not want you to wash it in the machine.. but I did anyways, no damage done, but the stains didn’t come out. I do not recommend putting it in the dryer! Now onto what I love about this bag.. I love how it can be a backpack or a shoulder bag.. I pretty much always have it on my back and then am carrying my baby in the ERGO in the front. The diaper-duty front zip part is very convenient. When I have to change my son when we are out, I can hold him with one arm, while I set the bag towards the top of the changing station, unzip and roll out the pad and then place him onto it.. It is super easy having everything right there! Also the bag is gorgeous! The applique or handstitched design adds a nice touch and I have been very pleased with it thus far. All the designs they have are fun, and I was able to still pick a cool design without being at all girly since I have a baby boy. I am actually looking forward to buying another one if I have another girl next because they are that beautiful!
Love the Backpack, Tired of the Pattern
I love the backpack style of this bag, as well as the option for over the shoulder. After using this bag for a year, I can’t see having any other style. I also love that the changing pad folds out, it’s incredibly convenient. I do wish it was a wipe-clean type of material, but I have put the pad in the wash and it’s fine.It is not the largest bag inside, and I find the pockets are not all that useful. However, it does hold what I need on a day to day basis, so I’m happy with it. For travel I might like something a little bigger.The only real down side in my opinion is the pattern. After a year I’m kind of tired of it and wishing I had gotten something more neutral. I wish they would come out with a solid bag in this style that can be used by a man or a woman, because it’s too much trouble for us to have separate bags stocked at all times. If I had it to do over I would pick the black on black pattern that is a little more subtle.
I LOVE my Pickle Bottom backpack!!! My husband purchased this for me for Mother’s Day because I was too cheap to buy it myself. Worth every penny! It easily holds all of the baby essentials. I like the wipe holder that is included. The changing pad is nicely padded and has laundered well. I don’t worry about "messing" up this bag. The coated canvas wipes off easily and looks great after months of use. The only con is that it can be a little tight if you are going to be gone from home all day (i.e.: need multiple bottles, change of clothes, toys, diapers, wipes, etc.). But I love to take this bag when running a few errands or going out to eat. It is great to be hands free with a backpack!
A great bag.
I’m glad I bought this bag for the following reasons:perfect sizeenough compartments for bottles – everything is easy to reachthe built-in changer is a great idea – the selling point for meruck-sack (back pack) feature- another selling point for mewipe clean exteriorwell designed.My only gripe? The metal fastener fell off after three weeks of light use. But I shall be requesting a replacement.
Backpack straps are nearly useless
I love the pattern. I love that you just wipe it clean. I love the fold out changing station, that is so darn handy. I love the pattern. The size is great for a large diaper bag. What I absolutely hate are the straps! For nearly $200 you should have very comfortable straps. The shoulder strap has no padding and what is worse the backpack straps are nearly useless they are very un-ergonomic and uncomfortable. The bag keeps slipping off my shoulders and ends up hurting my back. I end up using a 15 year old Jansport backpack when I am not taking my stroller but need more than a clutch style diaper bag will hold. I usually leave this in the back of my Mazda 5 so I can fold down a seat and have a handy changing station.
I’ve search for a better, cheaper bag and its not out there. I love the changing mat that comes with it and all the compartments for bottles, lotions, diapers, etc. Plus its really cute! It is made to last forever.
