A few weeks ago as my family prepared for our evacuation from Hurricane Isaac I was trying to figure you how to pack for my baby girl. I then remembered I had just received the JJ Cole Collections Satchel Bag and it couldn’t have come at a better time. The entire time we were on ‘hurrication’ I was able to find everything I needed without having to dig or take 10 things out to find just one. The satchel is so spacious, that I was able to fit everything she needed for 3 days, including sippy cups, clothes, diapers, wipes, medicine and lots more.
What I love about the JJ Cole Satchel is there is a place for everything, I was able to reach into the bag and grab exactly what I need. The interior is extremely spacious and consists of 4 large pockets big enough to hold several diapers in one pocket. There is also a coordinating changing pad that comes with the bag which folds up nicely and fits into one of the pockets.
On the outside of the bag you will find 7 (yes, I said 7) pockets. My favorite pockets are on the side which I have been using for sippy cups. You don’t have to worry about the cups spilling all over the inside of the bag, this way the cup is right side up and easy to locate. There are two different straps on the bag, one for over the shoulder and one for across the chest, which makes it great when trying to round up two toddlers. While I love everything about this bag, I have to say the stroller attachments take the cake. Usually my diaper bag is so big that when I go shopping it takes up the entire basket underneath the stroller and leaves no room for packages that I purchase. You simply hook on the stroller attachment and the bag hangs right there on the back, not only does it free up space in the bottom, it is easy to find what you are looking for since you don’t have to crawl under the stroller to look for that favorite toy out of the bag.
This diaper bag would make a great shower gift and should be on every mother-to-be’s registry. The faux leather satchel retails for $89.95 while the canvas bag is just $69.95. To check out this bag in action, watch this video then enter to win your own JJ Cole Satchel below!
