When we venture forth with a baby it is good to know that everything needed to keep the youngster clean, changed and refreshed is on hand and that the baby is taken care of when out and about with the minimum of fuss and bother. Priced at a penny under £26 this new changing backpack bag from BAMOMBY ticks all the boxes for me.
The bag arrived simply packed in a protective plastic bag with the backpack contained inside an attractive branded sack. No other packaging aside from that supplied by Amazon was used. This is a missed opportunity as an attractive colourful presentation box can greatly enhance the appeal of an item as a gift.
Ther bag itself is 41 x 31 x 15.5cm and has sixteen pockets including a side tissue pocket, a quick access insulated 3 bottle pocket and anti-theft laptop storage. It comes with stroller straps to attach the bag securely to a stroller or pram and 55 x 33cm waterproof changing mat. The bag has both a carry handle and shoulder straps and can be worn as a rucksack or carried.
The key feature for me is accessibility. The top of the bag opens out completely to give easy access to the contents. There are several ways to reach inside the bag without needing to open the top. Inside the bag, there are a host of pouches of varying sizes, some elasticated, to store necessities in and outside an easy access tissue holder. I like the easy access but secure side pocket capable of holding a tablet, phone or small laptop.
Build quality and construction seems fine to me. The bag seems well built and robust enough to take the knocks and bumps of everyday life. The bag is made from a dark grey Oxford Fabric and Polyester with strong metal zippers and non-fray stitching. Take care when cleaning as it has to be spot or hand washed only. From the outside, it just resembles a normal shopping bag and indeed could be used for that purpose too. The bag could also be useful for seaside trips as the waterproof interior pockets and bottle pouches could be very handy when on the beach.
This is a cleverly designed and well-made baby bag and at the current price is a very attractive buy indeed.
