As a busy dad, I am always looking for the next thing to make my life just a little bit easier and simpler. The DadGear Messenger Style Diaper Bag helps me accomplish these things — and is stylish to boot! If you're a dad that is often on the go with kids in tow, I'll tell you what you need to know about this manly, versatile bag. Not a dad? Check out this bag for the dad or dad-to-be in your life, just in time for Father's Day!
The DadGear Messenger Bag is the quintessential diaper bag which comes in more than 30 styles! You never know when your child's diaper needs changing, or perhaps just their clothes, but an included handy changing pad keeps you covered (or your kid) anytime anywhere. Can't find a changing table and have to use the bathroom counter or carpeted floor? Boom, you have a portable pad to put down. It's slightly cushy and waterproof thanks to the nylon fabric. Do you need to store powders, creams, bottles, and other accessories you didn't know existed before you had a kid? Me too. The two bottle pockets, two everything-pockets, and two zippered pockets offer plenty of storage.
I know what you're thinking. Surely there can't be enough room for diapering essentials AND formula and snacks too. Wrong you are sir. There certainly IS room for these things. Personally, I place a few generous doses of formula in a small plastic container to bring along with a spare bottle or three, and I and the wee-est one are good to go. The main compartment that fits diapers and everything else you might want to bring is generously sized. I usually stuff in 3-5 diapers per child along with a change of clothes for each child (potty training - *groan*) and I still have room to spare.
Usually I only bring along the essentials and "just-in-case" items, but this bag not only fits a lot, it is sturdy and flexible, so overstuffing is never an issue. The combination of Velcro and large buckles on the flap will hold in everything except the smell of that filthy diaper from two days ago that I forgot to toss. There are zipper pockets on the sides, on the front, along the back, and the front even has an opening for dispensing wipes!
One of the central features of the bag is the stretchy pocket on the front that holds wipes on a ready to reach basis — you can have the access to wipes facing out; reachable even without undoing buckles on the bag if you are in a tight spot.
The front pocket makes it easy to reach wipes even the backseat of the car while in the parking lot when your kid says they have sticky hands from the three suckers they pilfered from the bank, which turned their mouth completely blue. And whenever you want to do a quick diaper change without setting the bag down, you can grab a diaper and a wipe quicker than that child can crawl away, all without removing the DadGear Messenger Style Diaper Bag from your shoulder.
You or the dad in your life (or even your kids) can thank me later. This awesome diaper bag is available in a wide range of styles on the dadgear.com website, or on Amazon.com. Not only is it a deal and a half, but the decorative flaps are swappable and many are detailed with reflective tape. This DadGear Messenger Bag makes a perfect Father's Day gift too!.
