Along with reminiscing about the memories and days gone by, there are times that I look back on the past 6+ years and focus on the products. There were some that were, and still are, good choices. Products that made life easier, brought comfort or joy, or were, quite simply, items that I would recommend.
At the same time that I look back at items that I adored, that there were some items that I regret, knowing that I shouldn't have spent the money or taken up the space. Among those: the excess diaper bags.
What was I thinking buying a diaper bag that screamed Diaper Bag! when that easily meant that I would no longer carry it the second I didn't have an infant? Instead, it makes much more sense to select one bag that is unique, high quality, stylish and extremely versatile. That way it can be used pre-baby, throughout childhood, and then beyond, never once giving a woman's appearance the look of being centered on baby, baby, baby.
Combine those features with a bag that is unisex, extremely lightweight and can be adapted to nearly any situation and you've got yourself the Every Day Diaper Bag from Bōken.
A combination tote, backpack and cross-body messenger bag all in one, the Every Day Diaper Bag was inspired by a travel backpack and has the ability to fit your needs and your style, as well as keeping up with your hectic schedule.
No matter if you're focused on form, function, ease of cleaning or simply a modern, uncomplicated look, Bōken has managed to put all of that (plus more) into one simple bag.
As I pulled the Every Day Diaper Bag out of the box, I found that, even though I was expecting it to be small, I was still pretty amazed at just how compact it was.
Wait. There is a full-sized diaper bag in this tiny little pouch?
Sure enough, there is.
Weighing in at a whopping 13 ounces, this utilitarian, uncluttered, lightweight diaper bag is made from water-resistant material and includes pockets galore. Inside, outside, everywhere you look!
Starting with the top zipper — which I love, as then I don't worry that items will fall out if the bag is tipped — the Every Day Bag is extremely large and roomy on the inside. There you'll find a reinforced bottom, a large mesh pocket and a zippered smaller pocket to help keep your items organized.
Back on the outside, there are two zippered, easy access pockets on the front for personal items, as well as two end pockets (one zippered, one mesh) for baby bottles, water bottles or sippy cups.
But the fact that Bōken made this bag extremely lightweight, easy to clean, great for storage and included a full size changing pad are far from all the reasons that it is impressive.
Thanks to the Velcro pocket on the back...
...it only takes a minute to transform this bag from tote... to backpack... to cross-body bag. Did I mention the versatility?
Considering that the Every Day Diaper Bag is so much more than simply a diaper bag, I set out to use it in a variety of different situations and have found that it excelled in each one. It has easily carried our library books, been a gym bag, held wet snow gear, gone shopping, and much more.
After all of that, I knew that it would be perfect as a travel bag when the girls and I hopped on a plane for our spring break trip. What better way for kids to carry all of their necessities than with a bag that weighs nearly nothing, is strong and durable, and can be wiped clean of their messes?
Whether filled with snacks and activities for the plane, packed up for a day out sightseeing, or simply filled with sunscreen and towels to head to the pool, Bōken's bag has truly come in handy for just about every situation!
Whatever the world (or your baby) throws at you, the Every Day Diaper Bag from Bōken can handle it — while still looking modern, simple and functional. Moms, dads, grandparents, caregivers, this bag works for anyone and everyone!
Currently available directly from Bōken (as well as in select boutiques in the near future), the Every Day Diaper Bag retails for $68 and has the ability to replace the majority of bags currently hanging in your closet!
