I don’t pretend to be one of those supermoms that always has it together (no one would believe me anyway). And I don’t usually trick people. But when I got the PacaPod diaper bag I felt like that type of supermom that has a stylish handbag and takes care of her kids; I also felt like I was tricking people because it wasn’t only an amazingly gorgeous handbag – wait ’till you see what’s inside!
The PacaPod is an award-winning diaper bag with a unique 3-in-1 system. On the outside it looks like a stunning high-end designer handbag. But when you open it – 2 pods (or small backpacks) are revealed:
I received the Seqouia black PacaPod handbag for review. It was all I expected and then some. The two pods on the inside are for feeding and diapers so there’s a complete separation of the two, plus there’s a compartment for mom. The material of the handbag and the pods is very durable. The handbag is light enough to carry but large enough to fit everything you need. I was a little concerned that the pods would be too small but amazingly all of the bottles and diapers I needed fit in there perfectly (which was a lot)! I wouldn’t say this is a bag to take when you’re spending an entire day out with your older children – it won’t have enough room for tons of snacks and toys for your older kids, but for one baby it is plenty. Plus I loved that I had my own separate compartment for storing my own stuff like keys and phone, so I didn’t have to worry about baby food or diaper creams spilling on my personal items. I could even attach the PacaPod to my umbrella stroller and it didn’t tip over. Here’s an example of what you can fit in the PacaPod:
The outer bag has room for all of mom’s necessary items. It’s not very deep but it has pockets on the inside so everything’s neatly organized.
This is the pod for the diapers, wipes and creams. It also comes with a changing pad:
The pod for the food is actually deep enough to fit a bunch of bottles and can also be used once your baby is older and needs tons of snacks:
Here are some of my favorite PacaPod handbags (there are many more, even unisex):
You can purchase the Sequoia and other PacaPod handbags here. Prices are from $50 to $350.
I was not compensated for this post. I received a sample.
