    5 stars for everything but quality, April 2, 2013

    EDIT: I have used this bag daily for the past eleven months and I have to give it a fifth star back for quality, which I earlier deducted. There isn’t a SINGLE thing wrong with this bag, no zipper has stuck, no seam come undone. It works same as the day I bought it and I still get compliments on it as the surface looks new. SO HAPPY.

    I received this bag today, April 2nd 2013. My first impression was that the bag was slightly larger than I anticipated after looking at pictures on Amazon. It’s quite tall and wide so I’m very happy with its size!! It’s also surprisingly lightweight, thankfully. It’s just as beautiful in person as it is online. I looooove how it looks.

    The numerous unique pockets are really handy. There are designated bottle compartments which will fit most 8oz or smaller bottles. The short, fat Comotomo bottles don’t go in very easily though. There are two wide pockets on the inside great for a Kindle, travel wipes case or a woman’s wallet. The base of this bag is a couple inches wide.

    The front exterior pockets are as wide as my spread out hand (again, larger than I expected it to be!) They’re also quite deep. Great size for thin items like diapers, travel wipes case, snacks, cell phone, nursing cover, etc. They don’t have any closure except a simple dot magnet, but that doesn’t bother me. There are three pen slots in one of the front pockets.

    The two brown/red zippers up top were a surprise for me. The pictures on Amazon did not convey quite how they worked. They are essentially two “large envelope” sized pockets that line the bag opening. One is shallow and one is deep. I’ll probably keep my phone, keys and wallet in one of these since it seems more secure than an open pocket and very easily accessible since these important items won’t fall to the bottom of your bag.

    The adjustable strap is extremely smooth and easy to adjust. The stroller clips are a REAL pain to get around the stroller!! You almost need a third hand to hold the bag while operating that tiny clip. They don’t get in the way of the bag opening or closing luckily (a simple hidden magnet, no sticky zippers or noisy velcro) I bought a 2pk of Think King stroller hooks and now I adore the stroller straps in this bag.

    The material of this bag feels sort of like.. thick vinyl. Similar to a really thick, waterproof beach bag. It doesn’t look or feel anything like a cotton material or leather. The front pockets were wrinkled when it arrived but straightened out right away with use. The interior is a gray/lavender color. The brown accents are a latte color and the strap is a slightly different color than the zipper and handle accents. The two top zippers get stuck every time I try to zip them closed one handed. The bag stands up on its own, even when fully packed.

    The bag is beautiful and it’s got great pockets. It’s obvious they know what parents want in a bag, but the quality is only slightly disappointing. It looks great but feels a tiny bit cheap. I would gladly pay another $20 to have the zippers upgraded and heftier strap.

    Overall, very happy with it if it. I’ll update this review in a few months with how it’s holding up.

    Edit: This bag is getting daily use and after five months, it’s still in perfect condition. Very pleased with it! I’ve traveled with it on eight plane rides, multiple vacations and WAY too many walks to the grocery store. It’s held up and has been the perfect size for my now-6-month old.

    I regularly pack:
    -5 diapers
    -wipes case
    -couple of creams
    -Sohpie giraffe
    -small board book
    -two bottles
    -formula
    -teether, toy, foam letters
    -aden + anais blanket
    -extra outfit
    -tissues
    -paci and case
    -changing pad
    -phone, wallet, keys

    Pretty good, not as good as the Signature., October 22, 2015

    I got both this and the Signature bag- here are the differences.

    1. The Signature has exterior bottle pockets made of mesh with an elastic trim. The Special Edition has interior, insulated zip pockets.

    2. In addition to the main compartment, the Signature has a key fob, one half-length pocket (below the handle), and one large phone pocket (holds my enormous G4 or an iPhone 6 Plus). In addition to the main compartment, the Special Edition has one half-length pocket (above the handle, red zipper in this photo). [[Please note, the first generation of this bag had TWO zipper compartments at the top and the main compartment closed with magnets. The new version has one half-length zipper compartment and the main compartment closes with a zipper.]]

    3. The patterns on the Special Edition are attractive and the fabric has a wipeable vinyl-type finish. The patterns on the Signature are OK or solids. The fabrics are mostly kind of a rugged canvas (I think some of the patterns are wipeable). Leather or faux leather trim on the Special Edition, nylon on the Signature.

    Here’s what I concluded. On the Special Edition, the interior bottle pockets are limited in size and take space away from the main compartment. I haven’t needed insulated pockets yet (baby is 12 months old) and like how stretchy the exterior ones are on the Signature- I can fit a skinny Thermos in there with warm water for formula.

    The position of the half-length pocket on the Special Edition makes it harder to get into the main compartment- a full pocket obscures your vision of the interior.

    The cell phone pocket is AWESOME (even my big cell phone gets a bit lost in the big half-length pocket); I keep a phone and my license and CCD in there when I leave my purse at home. You could fit a few more things in as well, if you were bold enough to risk your lip gloss and phone together, for example. 🙂

    I put a travel hand sanitizer on the key fob of the Signature- love it.

    I do miss the better looks (more polished) of the Special Edition, but the fabric was actually prone to wrinkles. It looked a little more sloppy than I imagined. My all-black Duo is very gender-neutral (if you have partners who care about that kind of thing)… basically a big black messenger bag with tons of pockets. (Don’t get me wrong, it’s vastly nicer than a messenger bag.)

    If looks > function for you, get this one. It’s just slightly worse, and still a good bag. Otherwise, get the Signature. Either way, pair with the SugarSNAP files (seriously, worth every penny) for maximum function. (I wasn’t a fan of either bag until I used those… basically they bring organization to a big, deep bag.)

    My dream bag 🙂, July 25, 2014

    In a couple months I will have 3 kids 3 and under, so after years of stuffing everything in a oversized purse I decided to spend the money an actual diaper bag. I have always been turned off by them because so many of them look like either a duffel bag or an obvious diaper bag. I spent hours researching, reading reviews, and watching reviews on youtube and finally settled on this bag in french stripe. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this bag has changed slightly from the description. Rather then having two zippered envelope pockets on top with a magnetic closure, there is now just the larger zippered pocket and the main compartment zips closed rather then the magnetic closure. In my opinion, the zippered closure brought this bag from almost perfect to being my dream diaper bag! The overall appearance of this bag is absolutely perfect, it looks like a designer canvas tote but is actually a wipeable material with all the functions and organization of a diaper bag. As far as size/pockets goes, this bag holds everything I need without feelig like im lugging around a gym bag. I did a sample packing of everything I would bring on an average outing with two toddlers and a baby and this is what I fit:
    Front two pockets: smartphone, sunglasses, keys, light weight nursing cover, and burp cloth. These are the key items I need to be able to grab/put away frequently and quickly and they all fit in the front two pockets without spilling over and I was able to close the magnetic snaps.
    Hidden bottle pockets:a few snacks in one side (I would pack a seperate small cooler bag for a full day put) and an 8oz klean kanteen sippy cup in the other.
    Back outside pocket: changing pad, could easily stuff a few more items here if needed.
    Zippered pocket on top: this is my “purse” area with my wallet, brush, chapstick, travel lotion ect. Plenty of space here!
    Main inside compartment: My 20oz hydroflask waterbottle, diaper case with wipes and 6 diapers, baby k’tan carrier wrapped up into a ball, a few small toys for my 18 month old, extra outfit for baby, and a muslin swaddle blanket.
    Fitting all these items makes for a full bag, but it is organized and still zips closed. If I was already wearing my baby in the k’tan, that would free up a lot of space in the main compartment (which will be most of the time).
    I am so glad I ignored any negative reviews. If I was bottle feeding a baby with two young toddlers, then no this bag would not be big enough… but that would be true for most diaper bags. The quality of this bag is awesome; well made and beautiful! I am a mom that brings my kids and therefore my bag almost everywhere with me, and I am 100% happy with this purchase. Thank you, skip hop!
