– Best Diaper bag!!
I had researched different diaper backpacks. I ordered one from Carter's. It was okay. But once I found DadGear, I HAD to buy the pistachio designed backpack!! The compartments are the best for easy use. Especially the diaper compartment! I don't have to dig for diapers anymore. Woohoo!! I have recommended the DadGear to so many people and would recommend it to anyone!!! Also, the best thing is when you're trying to get your child out of the car, carrying the car seat or even tryin to get your baby in the stroller. The bag doesn't constantly fall off like the one shoulders would! Believe it or not, saves time! Those couple minutes do count!! –

– Great bag
This is my second bag, first one was a Columbia brand and it frayed lots within about 7-8 months. So far this Dadgear Classic is bigger, easier to organize, and generally more user friendly. Overall 10/10. The wipes holder is just an elastic strap, it doesn't have a bottom but while other reviews said packs fell out of place, mine hasn't yet. Pricey but so far seems like a good investment. –
Bill - 04/03/2015
– Great bag!
Back functions very well for my for I wish I would have known sooner that this bag existed. Only thing I wish could be added would be an insulated bottle pocket. Still a five star bag, I have been telling everyone I know about this bag. –

– Dadgear backpack
I have had the backpack for a few months and it has lots of great features. First,a backpack style I find is the only way to go. I need all my hands and arms free with 2 kids. The design hooks to strap on a stroller is probably my most used and my favorite feature. You don't want to carry the bag all the time so having the option to hang it is great and it distributes the weight evenly. I also enjoy the wipe dispenser. It's difficult sometimes to get the wipe out but not digging through the bag is very helpfull. Another feature that just be mentioned is the seperate diaper pocket. Always very accessible!! There are many excellent features in this backpack and I'd recommend to anyone. Completely worth the money!! The only thing I'll mention is I wish there were mesh pockets inside the main portion of the bag, that way you didn't have to dig down to the bottom of the bag when in an upright position. Otherwise excellent, excellent bag!!

– Love this bag!!
Was so impressed with the quality of this bag. My husband absolutely loves it and since it looks like a laptop bag, he loves carrying it. The compartments are extremely convenient and its the perfect size for all of the essentials. Couldn't be more pleased with DadGear. Definitely recommend this product and this company :) –
Missy - 03/12/2015
– Great Great Great!
LOVE this backpack! Easy for the "on the move" parent! I would suggest getting the wipe case. Will definitely suggest this company to other parents! –

– Vest was a Hit at the Shower!
The DadGear Diaper Vest was a total hit at my friend's baby shower. I brought the dad-to-be in the room and had him open his very own present in front of everyone. I had the vest stashed with all the essentials of diaper changing plus a bottle. He thought it was funny and the mom-to-be thought it was great because her husband wasn't happy about carrying around a diaper bag. My husband has the vest (was given as a gift at our shower). He wears it for everyday use - the different pockets are great for many things including a couple hard cider bottles! –
Kristin HM - 03/06/2015
– Pretty Content
I am more than satisfied with my purchase of The Classic, especially because it is not too feminine. The strap is large enough to throw over my shoulder and there are enough pockets inside to easily locate bottles, wipes, ointments and powders, diapers and burp cloths when time is of the essence. This is a huge advantage compared to the diaper bag my wife bought from The Pottery Barn.
As far as drawbacks, I did not buy the wipes container available on the website since it was an added cost. I thought the wipes I could buy at the store would be a suitable alternative, but after a use or two the lid fell off and I was wrong. –
Joe - 03/05/2015
Let me just start by saying I am a first time Dad. This backpack is so convenient. Absolutely, Love the extra storage. Everything is well thought out and sturdy. –
John Haley - 02/26/2015
– Great bags for baby shower gifts!
I have to admit that I have never had a dadbag but I found out about them from my best friend who got one for her husband when they had their second kid and I loved it after checking it out! I now give them to multiple friends for baby shower gifts and fill them with all the stuff they are going to need but don't know about yet, like laundry detergent and gripe water, etc. They get to choose the bag they want and everyone I have gotten one for has loved it! Can't recommend these bags enough. –
Andrea Brown - 02/25/2015
– Ingenious Product!
Perfect for going out without weighing oneself down with unwieldy bags and equipment. Baby and I can spend more time together in a richer variety of environments because of the portability of all of our needs enabled by the DadGear vest.
With my ready-to-go DadGear vest, I am an active parent - not an equipment manager.
A+ product in quality and in design. –

– My son, the new dad, loves it!!!
It was the biggest hit at the coed baby shower!!! Clever idea!! –

We got this as a gift for our son-in-law and he really likes it! Perfect for every Dad (and Mom)! –

Lisa Blackaby - 01/22/2015
– Great product
I am very pleased with the product I purchased. It was a christmas gift for my husband. He loves it and is ready for the baby to get here to use it. Ordering was very easy and the bag was shipped and delivered in a very timely manner. Very impressed and would use company again in the future! –
Lara West - 01/22/2015
– Diaper bag
We love the backpack and features but it is a bit pricey. –
Brooke - 01/20/2015
– Cool bag
Bought this for my brother who has tattoos and likes to be stylish and he was stoked. It's really strong and sturdy with tons of compartments and special pockets. Highly recommended. –
Janice - 01/18/2015
I really didn't think I needed this product (my wife bought this for me as a present). I could not have been more wrong. This backpack is far more handy to carry around than a traditional diaper bag, holds the baby stuff we need to carry, my prescriptions, my ipad and charging cables - even allow me to carry bottles in the side pockets. We like it so much, my wife hasn't even touched her expensive twin diaper bag. The backpack carries all we need.
I could not be happier with this product! –
Brian L - 01/15/2015
– The perfect bag
I'm so happy I decided to get this bag. The design is incredibly thoughtful and the quality of the craftsmanship is superb. Thanks! –
Jesse Flowers - 01/06/2015
– Great Gift for New Dad
I bought this bag as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law just before our first grandchild is born. This messenger style bag is perfect for his office image, classy and sturdy. Love the outside access to the baby wipes. Disappointed in the size of the changing pad, but overall a great bag. –
Kathleen - 01/05/2015
– Perfect! Lots Of Storage
This is a great backpack for Dads who like to be organized and prepared. I took it to the hospital for our first birth loaded with clothes, baby blankets, juice boxes, charging cables for our devices, a power strip, snacks, chapstick, and lots of other stuff.
I love bringing this whenever we take our newborn out of the house. I'm thinking of adding colored label tags to the zippers so Mom knows where to look when she needs something quick. –
Gabrien Symons - 01/05/2015
– Love it
My husband wanted a "special" diaper bag all of his own and he insisted on having a backpack. I, of course, went with my own conventional style, over the shoulder diaper bag for me. After 17 months now, I have completely abandoned my diaper bag and only use the backpack we purchased from Dad Gear. It is SO much bigger! I can fit tons of diapers, wipes, ointments, water bottle, baby bottle, food cups, a couple changes of clothes, bibs, blankets, toys and more and I never have trouble finding what I am looking for. My only complaint was that the plastic wipe holder it came with didn't seal properly so the wipes would dry out quickly. My solution was to simply remove it and put a store bought package of wipes in its place. Problem solved. We just purchased another back pack to give as a shower gift!! –
Amy - 01/04/2015
– Great bag
My wife and I spent long time looking and thinking about what we wanted out of a diaper bag. We decided the back pack is what we wanted. It's nice and big. At the same time if you want to carry this with you everywhere it's big so keep that in mind. This is out travel diaper bag now and we have a small purse looking for quick trips to the store. I love the pockets and it meets all out needs. –
Scott Davis - 01/01/2015
– Top cool!
Looove the style & practicality of the bag. Loved it so much that we had to order our friends one as well for their baby shower! –
Samantha - 12/28/2014
– Dad tested and approved
I ordered this for my husband for his outings with our twins. He loves it! The design -- both inside and out -- is perfect. –
Nicole - 12/08/2014
– Outstanding quality, super practical & stylish for both men & women!!
My husband & I love this bag. The makers thought of everything. Streamlined organization, efficient space utilization, room for all necessary items without an over abundance of useless compartments or fashion features that don't add to utility. We love that it's made in the USA! Great customer service, prompt delivery. Love it! And we looked at MANY. Best combo of form & function! –
Adriana - 12/04/2014
– Awesome diaper bag for both dads and moms
Although it's a bit expensive it is worth the price because it keeps all of baby's gear organized. We enjoy the backpack style vs over the shoulder type of bags because it is better for our posture and trying to keep balance while juggling the little one. I'd recommend this product for all the on the go dads and moms –
shauna - 11/26/2014
– Love this product!
My wife got me the backpack diaper bag so I had a "manly" way to cary diapers and other baby must haves and I love it. It has plenty of room to bring tons of stuff for the ride and it is comfortable and convenient. I would reccomend this product to anyone. –
– SO CLOSE TO PERFECT!
I cannot say enough good things about this diaper bag. After trying all the rest, we've finally come to an (almost) happy place. We love that the backpack is lightweight and durable. Love all the compartments too. We got the black with gray plaid and love the look of it. So comfortable to tote around in 100 degree weather around disneyland. The changing pad that came with it is way too flimsy / small for our now 2-year old, so we don't even bother using it. The ONLY thing on my wishlist for this bag is insulated bottle holsters. I wish these were insulated! I would pay the extra money for that and I'm sure a lot of other parents would too. Please consider that if you ever do a redesign. –
Nina - 11/10/2014
– Perfect for Mom's and Dad's
I originally purchased this backpack for my husband as the one we had was too girlie for him, but now I use it as my everyday diaper bag. We live in the mountains and this bag suits our active lifestyle perfectly. The features are unsurpassed by any other diaper bag I've found on the market. The quality of the bag is well worth the price. I would definitely recommend this product. As a side note, my mother is going to be ordering one of these bags for a carry on for when she travels. She's impressed with all of the pockets and thinks it will be the perfect bag to keep her organized on all her travels. –
Lisa - 11/07/2014
– love this thing
Ive been using this bag for a month now and it's been great. The backpack style makes life so much easier and I love that it looks like a regular manly backpack. My wife has actually preferred using it over her messenger style diaper bag. It doesn't feel exactly like the quality of a north face or other high end back pack but it does feel solid and the well thought out compartments make it so much better than using a regular backpack. I strongly recommend this bag to anyone with small children especially infants. –
tim - 11/06/2014
– Very convenient bag
I'm a dad of twin eleven month old boys. The bag is big enough to carry enough diapers, bottles, toys, extra clothes and food for both of them. I use the bag everyday. It is very durable and a good product. –
Claude - 11/02/2014
– Works well but overpriced
Why is this not included with the bags?!!! I bought a backpack. I have always preferred to use a backpack as a diaper bag especially when traveling, so I absolutely love that the DadGear backpack is designed to be a diaper bag! However I was not pleased to find out that the wipes case that is designed to fit perfectly in the easy access wipes window of the backpack was not included. And the fact that it is not included is not made very clear. DadGear, you have a great product, you should include the wipes case! I had to go back and order the wipes case separately. It is way overpriced and I had to pay shipping again. I tried to use several different wipes cases but I could not get them to fit nicely in the window. The DadGear wipe case works perfectly! It's so convenient. Why is it not included again?!!! –
Kerri - 10/31/2014
– Shanghai Adventure
I ordered the Dad Gear backpack diaper bag because I was moving to Shanghai, China with my two small children, ages 2 and 4. It turned out to be the best decision I ever made. For the 16 hour plane ride alone, it was a lifesaver. I purchased the stainless steal water bottle and kept milk in it for my children. This kept me from having to nag the flight attendants every couple of hours. The backpack can hold a tremendous amount of snacks, extra clothes and toys. All things I needed on the plane. My favorite feature is the wipe dispenser. Very cool. Now that we are in Shanghai, it's been nice to have both hands free to wrangle my children on the busy streets and sidewalks (there's not really a big distinction between the two here). Finally, I would say this backpack is not just for dads. I am a mom and I love it! –
Tristan Harper - 10/25/2014
– Great product
This diaper bag backpack is one of the most amazing designed diaper bags I've ever seen there's a pocket for everything that you would need easy access design very well dad's no one will know that you're carrying around a diaper bag –
Jezi - 10/25/2014
– Exactly what I was looking for
I searched far and wide for a diaper bag suited for men, and I finally found it at DadGear. My wife is actually kind of jealous of my bag because of some of the features that hers doesn't have! –
Nathan - 10/24/2014
– Love the product
I ordered this bag for my oldest son. He is expecting his first baby after years of infertility. We are so excited for him. I wish this product was available when he was a baby. I would have loved it then too. –
jody dulaney - 10/17/2014
– Great Bag
The Backpack Diaper bag and Jacket were shipped swiftly. My husband loves them. Wish I could have got him a medium, but they only had larges at the time. –
T. Masten - 10/15/2014
– Made in USA
Thank you for having your products made in USA!! I was looking for something that our son-n-law could appreciate. The diaper bag and vest were a perfect match. –
Genevieve Rudy - 10/07/2014
– Functionality and Practicality
Love it! My wife told me that the bag was really ugly and she didn't understand why I needed my own diaper bag. Me, I knew I needed it since I found out it existed. These days she loves the bag and hates her own. It is just so well designed and the functionality is great for us dads who value efficiency above all else!
Gary Gomez - 10/06/2014
– Coolest Diaper bag EVAR!!!
Got the messenger bag & an extra flap for my husband as a pre-baby gift. He thinks it's the coolest thing he has ever seen and so does every other guy he has shown it off to! There was no way he was going to carry the purse style one I had gotten for myself, so this way he can still feel cool but have everything he is going to need on hand. Highly recommend these bags!! Thanks! –
Erin - 10/06/2014
– What guys need
Incredibly functional, practical, and with a modern masculine design. –
Jon - 10/05/2014
– Love the space and ease of carrying it!
My husband and I love the backpack diaper bag. It has so many different compartments that keep everything organized. Also when u are trying to carry the car seat the backpack never gets in your way.it makes going places easy! –
melissa - 10/05/2014
– Perfect for Dad and Mom
My husband really wanted me to get a backpack style diaper bag for ease of carry and plain style for when he was on duty. This product met those requirements but is so much more! I love the many zippered pockets and easy access wipes dispenser. Word to the wise: we use Kirkland brand wipes from Costco and the whole package fits in the pocket dispenser! I bought the extra wipes piece by dadgear but it was unnecessary due to this fact.
We recently traveled for the weekend with our 6 week old and all her necessary goods fit in this backpack. It is very well made and very comfortable to wear. I would never want a purse style diaper bag - with all the junk we haul around it's very nice to have the weight evenly distributed on both shoulders.
I also really like supporting U.S. companies. –
Kari - 09/27/2014
I am very happy with my purchase. The messenger bag is a quality product and we use it every time we leave the house. –
Alex - 09/27/2014
– Awesome Diaper Bag
I am glad that I found a diaper bag that was not the typical "girly style".
After placing the order the bag was delivered promptly. Being six foot three one of the worries I had was it fitting my tall frame. After using the bag I am glad that I made the purchase. The straps could be a bit longer but the backpack diaper bag is comfortable and I would recommend it to any dad. This would also be a great gift for a soon to be dad. –
Cody Williams - 09/24/2014
– Really nice diaper bag
I like the versatility and style of this diaper bag. I'm a guy that is always on the go and like to have things accessible to me whenever I am with the baby, that's why the side bags for bottles was the best idea you guys could come with. The only thing you need to work on is a bigger wipe dispenser. The one you include in your product is nice and slim, but it dries wipes too fast. Need to have a wipe dispenser where you can fit wipes and pouch so you don't have to deal with dry wipes anymore. –
M. Sandoval - 09/20/2014
– Great bag/concept, missing small detail
This bag is awesome. I love the compartmentalizations, ruggedness, design and innovations. I only have one small complaint that affects me every time I open the bag. The wipes "window" was one of the big sellin points for me when shopping do a diaper bag. The Velcro strap that holds the wipes in place does not have any support on the bottom to keep the wipes from sliding out and ending up in the bottom of my bag. This takes the window from a great idea to just a hole in the front of my bag. Other than that I love it. –
Ryan Barnett - 09/20/2014
– Daddy LOVES his diaper bag!
I was so pleased with the quality, comfort and look of the messenger bag that we ordered for my awesome stay at home Dad/Honey-Man. The graphics look great and the velcro to switch out the flaps is super strong. My guy is a big dude and the adjustable strap is comfortable for both of us to even cross carry. He loves the bag and get lots of "wows" from other dads. Favorite feature by far is the little front window for easy diaper wipe retrieval. Thanks for filling a need and providing a diaper bag that doesn't tarnish the "man card"! –
Carlye Lucey - 09/18/2014
– Terrific Bag
My baby is three days old but I've already gotten a lot of use out of my bag. The organization for everything is outstanding. Far superior to my wife's designer bag which cost an obscene amount of money. You can fit a ton of stuff into the Dadgear bag. New dads:you have no idea how much stuff you need. Aside from the outstanding functionality, it looks good. I can toss it over my shoulder wearing sweats or when I'm dressed up for work. I highly recommend this bag. –
Joshua - 09/17/2014
I was looking for a diaper bag that was practical and that my husband wouldn't mind wearing. This bag is awesome!! He won't wear a regular backpack because he thinks they are uncomfortable but he loves this one!!! Even though it is bulky, the weight is distributed evenly so it doesn't feel too heavy to wear for extended periods. There is tons of space and multiple pockets to keep everything organized. The only thing I would want that this bag doesn't have is a compartment that is insulated. Great quality! –
Shannon Zarnoski - 09/15/2014
– Excellent bag
Bag has everything you could need storage wise and is easy to carry. Also nice looking. –
Ryan - 09/13/2014
– Great product, highly recommended
We received our Original Messenger diaper bag about two months ago and we LOVE it! It is highly functional and fits all our baby supplies neatly and efficiently. We also love that it doesn't scream "diaper bag" and we were able to buy it in just plain black - it's surprisingly hard to find a decent, subtle, unisex diaper bag! Only change I would make is we won't be swapping out the front flap, so we would rather just have that flap sewn on rather than attached with velcro, but that being said we haven't had any problems with it coming detached, so it's not a problem. Overall, great product! –
AGibson - 09/13/2014
– diaper backpack
We love our backpack. What really sold me was the access to the wipes on the front. There are so many pockets to keep things separated and organized. Even a spot for cold bottles or drinks. I haven't attached it to our stroller yet but I do like that feature. Although the sticker price was high and I had to really think about getting it, All in all I'm happy and It's been working out great for our two kids. The quality is good and it's made in the USA you can't beat that! –
Steph - 09/11/2014
– many pockets for maximum versatility!
Have really been enjoying this backpack. Light and comfortable means less stress for those day trips! Many pockets make organization of all the various items a baby and parents may need a breeze. Holds plenty of diapers so less restocking compared to other bags. and the wipes storage is a time saver for sure. It meets every functional need that I have and looks awesome. I use it almost daily and has been holding up great. Cleans up easily and the design makes it easy for quick on the go changes!! Really content with my purchase and would definitely recommend to any father who's out with their baby alot. –
Joshua - 09/09/2014
– great shower gift for dad
Well thought out diaper bag with all the essential pockets while looking manly for the Dad –
Donna - 09/07/2014
– great product
I bought my husband the diaper backpack for his birthday because he was tired of lugging around a diaper bag/purse. We now both use the backpack since it's more organized and a lot easier to carry around. –
Beth Magee - 08/27/2014
– excellent idea
I love how much space is in the bag. I can put my baby's clothes and more of his essentials. I really love that is not a girly diaper bag. –
Abel salazar - 08/26/2014
– Very pleased with the quality.
The title pretty much says it all. I was very pleased with the overall quality and practicality of the bag. My wife is due in a week so soon I'll be putting it to the real test. –
Eric Miller - 08/10/2014
– Ultimate, essential Dad gear.
Dads need all the hands they can get. This vest keeps all essentials for baby within reach with out being cumbersome. It lets Dad have hands free for the important things such as hugging and carrying little one. And because it all resides in a wearable vest, much less chance of leaving or forgetting at the playground, on the subway, in the car... Perfect accessory for the cool, fun, on the move Daddy. –
Tamara Dokurno - 08/09/2014
– Diaper Duty Dad
As a father of 3, I can really appreciate the style and craftsmanship that went into my diaper bag. I'm constantly complimented on it wherever I go. Not only does it look awesome, but its extremely practical and functional. I literally have zero complaints about this bag, and the fact that its made in the U.S.A., made it a no-brainer for me to purchase. –
Junior - 08/04/2014
– Sport Bag - Fantastic Craftsmanship
I like quality outdoor gear, so I convinced my wife that we were ordering this diaper bag instead of a giant, inefficient, overly feminine bag from Babies "R" Us. The bag is very well designed and well built. I am quite impressed. It is great that this is made in USA too! –
Daniel Carlson - 08/03/2014
very fast delivery and item is very well made –
kathy - 07/30/2014
– Perfect bag for Dads on the Go!
I bought this for my husband for Father's Day before our baby arrived, and he was thrilled. He'd been talking about this backpack since early in my pregnancy, but also talked about buying another Timbuk2 messenger bag (which he currently uses for work/personal stuff). Knowing that my husband LOVES a good backpack, he was excited and has been raving about how functional it is. His favorite features are the "quick-draw" wipes pouch and the insulated drink holders. His only recommendation for change would be to add more pockets on the large interior of the backpack, but that's really more of a minor concern. Although we haven't been using the backpack for long, the bag is extremely durable, flexible and comfortable to wear (for both men and women). Though the price point isn't the cheapest, you get what you pay for and this bag is worth every cent! –
Kari - 07/30/2014
– Best bag ever!
I purchased this bag as my "last" diaper bag. I have a four year old and year old twins. We are out of diapers, but we use this as our go everywhere bag. The wipes access alone is reason enough to purchase this bag. It holds everything we need for our three kids without being too bulky. The only thing I wish it had was a fully lined insulated compartment. Other than that, I can not say enough good things about this bag. –
Andrea - 07/28/2014
– dad gear diaper bag
whenever I need a gift for a baby shower, I always choose this bag. it comes in many diff colors and designs and because it is a back pack, it's pretty unisex and the dad's love to use it too. everytime I've given this, the response is incredible...people love it! and I usually will stuff if with other baby items; it's a super gift! –
amy - 07/26/2014
Absolute genius. I got this bag about two months ago after my baby girl arrived. After navigating the bland and absurd world that is today's baby market... I found dadgear.com and found this messenger bag. It was really great in design and function. We got the bag so fast. The bag itself is amazing. My wife loves it. it holds everything we need for not only our 2 month old but for our four year old as well. If you are thinking about getting this bag. I encourage you to do it! This is easily the best purchase I have made in a very long time –
Rob - 07/25/2014
– messenger bag
Im a nurse and work weekends and strange hours, leaving my husband to take care of our daughter by himself when he's home. My husband loves this bag! And I must admit that I'm thinking about sharing it with him as I haven't found a woman's diaper bag that makes as much functional sense as the dad gear messenger bag. –
megan - 07/18/2014
– Backpack diaper bag
I can't express how much I love my DadGear diaper bag. I had two previous diaper bags before this one - the first one was a back pack model but broke after about six months. The second I got was a messanger style bag, but lacked space and was awkward to carry when toting a baby around. The DadGear diaper bag has solved all the problems with my previous two bags. It has more space than I could have ever imagined (and I've been known to cram our bags full of EVERYTHING!) and is comfortable to carry around while toting small kids. I love this product and only wish I had known about it when my first baby was born! –
Shannon - 07/16/2014
– Finally a diaper backpack
Love the new backpack. The waterproof pockets make it easy to clean and the pockets are well designed and useful. The only issue that i have had is hanging it on the stroller. The double hooks are strong and work well it is just time consuming when you got two kids waiting. A nice carabiniere hook or something quick would be great but maybe not cost effective. So nice to finally have a backpack instead of those messenger bags though. Thanks –
Duane - 07/08/2014
– Sherpa time!
Been using the backpack for only 2 weeks and I couldn't be happier! Tons of storage space, and a number of super handy pockets and features to boot. Looks great as well!
Only change would be on the zippers. They are a little loud banging together when you move. Super sturdy though.
Thanks DadGear - looking forward to many more years with my backpack! –
Brad B - 07/07/2014

I gave my husband the backpack diaper bag. All the compartments are terrific! Very cool to have it open to be it's own changing station. –

Great product it has everything you really need for a diaper bag. It's very functional and has perfect pockets for organization, and I love that the bag unzips and folds flat his a great feature so you can have easy access to every thing. Overall two thumbs up!! –

Bought the backpack for my husband for Father's Day. He takes it everywhere. Perfect for our two girls under two –
Marina Parsons - 06/21/2014
– Awesome diaper back pack
I can't say enough how efficient my new "dad bag" (as I like to call it) has been for me and my family. It's very conveniant and has plenty of storage for everything. My wife would even agree that this bag world better than her bulky diaper bag. Delivery was also fast and I was also treated to a follow up email making sure everything iwent well. –

– More then a 'Diaper bag'
I got this for my Husbands' birthday and he loves it! He uses it every single day! He keeps pull-ups AND diapers as well as arm&hammer diaper bags in the top and his wallet, keys and tums etc. in the front pocket and he was just saying how he loves the insulated side drink pockets because when he grabs a cold drink from home on his way out the door it's still cold when he remembers it's there 4 hours later, or all the room for all his papers, office mail, Tablet and MacBook (not too mention how often he throws his backpack on the floor or his car and nothing ever breaks because of the inner awesome marshmallow like padding) and all the baby essentials in the other pockets, there's always still somehow more room left! When he does do daddy grocery day for busy mommy, he loves the stroller attachments; he uses them on the grocery cart, too give his back a rest! I origannly got this for him because he dreaded carrying our very girly diaper bag around and I was tired of the excuse "you grab the bag and I'll get everything else" and instead it ended up turning into his new favorite accessory to his everyday wardrobe and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!! –

– Excellent product, even better customer service
As a first time father I purchased a backpack diaper bag. UPS lost my package and after a 5 min conversation with DadGear customer service I had a new backpack on the way, with an apology even though they shared no blame. They couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, and I had my new backpack in a couple of days. The backpack is made of very high quality material and the wipes pouch is a lifesaver! There is more than enough room for a long journey away from home and the different compartments for bottles, changing pad, diapers etc make life much easier. I am very happy with my purchase and will recommend to all of my friends. –

– Dad can't wait to try it.
I got this as a dad's gift to his son for a first grandchild. The first choice, a diaper bag, seemed too normal. I wanted something that was "gear." The baby is still a newborn but the vest was a hit. The only suggestion I have for DadGear is that you could ship these with the pockets full of the items they are meant to hold, or, better yet, an image printed on card stock of what each pocket is designed to hold. That would add a little fun to the gift opening by the new dad. –
Jack Wittman - 05/27/2014
– Great Dad Diaper Bag!!!
I bought the original messenger diaper bag as a gift for my husband who is also a first time dad. He loved the comfort and style of the messenger bag without looking like a women's diaper bag. I recommend this for any dad. –
Jessica - 05/21/2014
I love the bag it doesn't resemble anything like a diaper bag until you open it. It's great! And it's manly –
Brandon - 05/21/2014
– Great for multiple children
We researched several diaper bags while expecting our second child. We wanted something larger that would keep the childrens' necessities more organized. I looked into DadGear while searching for something American made. We have been very happy with the purchase. The several compartments do make it easy to separate and keep clothes, bottles, diapers, etc... organized. I also like the convenience of the wipes pocket - very easily accessible! –
Catherine - 05/20/2014
– Great products, USA made!
I have purchased several DadGear bags over the past couple of years for friends and family with kids. I purchased my first one almost three years ago and loved it so much, I had to get them for others. They sell great products that are designed with a lot if thought, they look great, and best of all they are made in the USA.
The customer service from the company is also top notch! They are prompt with responses to questions, and seem to genuinely care for their customers.
I can't say enough good things about DadGear! –
Nick - 05/16/2014
– Great for the on the go mom
Love my charcoal whimsy backpack diaper bag. These bags just make sense! Most backpack diaper bags are to small or to girly in my opinion. This has just enough touch to be feminine and super practical. I bought and returned several backpack diaper bags before I came across DadGear! –
Austyn - 05/14/2014
This baby bag is the best bag for someone who is always on the go! Been traveling and it works great with a baby carrier. Many pockets and lots of space! Wonderful wonderful bag! Worth every penny! –
Gerri - 05/13/2014
– Zippers make lots of noise
We have the backpack diaper bag. It has great pockets with very useful storage for specific items like diapers and bottles. I really like the pocket on top for keeping diapers organized. The one thing that I really do not like is that the zippers/zipper pulls make so much noise. It's very annoying that the bag jingles so lout every time you pick it up or even move the bag. I had to tie prices of cord onto each zipper just so that it would dampen the noise. –
Lauren - 05/08/2014
– A Hugh Hit!!
We decided to have a "Celebration" instead of "Shower" for my daughter. I bought the Diaper Vest for my son-in-law. I filled it with everything he would need ie. bottles, diapers, wipes, powder, band-aids, lysol disinfectant spray etc. I even put a little pair of sneakers and a little outfit that said "Coaches Kid" in there. I didn't wrap the Vest, I just put it on him, he was pulling stuff out from everywhere. THE VEST WAS A HUGH HIT!! everyone was asking where I got it. This Vest is definitely something Daddy will use and I know he will get my monies worth out of it. –
Billie - 05/08/2014
– Genius product
This is a genius product. There's nothing else like it on the market. My husband loves showing it off to his friends! Our favorite feature is the wipee compartment. –
Christina San Jorge - 05/07/2014

Jose Tavera - 05/01/2014
– Still Fantastic 6 Years later
I just wanted to share with you how much I love your backpacks. We went through several diaper bags with my first son. We couldn't seem to find one that fit all of our needs, until I came upon your product on a web search. I took a chance and ordered a bag. That was six years ago and I am still in love with the bag. After six years and two boys the bag is still being used for when we hike, bike, boat or have overnight trips. Thank you for making such a fantastic product.? –
Kellyan T. - 04/25/2014
– So glad you have an alternative diaper bag for dads
As a woman I truly love purses and bags but I knew my husband would not appreciate the typical diaper bag geared towards women. I wanted him to keep his masculinity while caring for our child. We love the backpack and the ingenuity your company showed in the design. Good job!! –
Amy K - 04/24/2014
– Great product overall and smart design
I purchased a backpack diaper bag oin preparation for a newborn due in June 2014. I haven't had a chance to use this backpack on a daily basis yet so I Wil likely have future feedback as well but here are my initial thoughts.
1. Backpack is solidly constructed
2. Realy smart design with zip open to lay flat, spot for baby wipes easily accessible without opening the bag, spots for multiple bottles also easily accessible. Very well thought out design overall and quite usable.
1. Straps could be longer. I'm a big & tall guy and frankly have little strap available to fit me correctly. Maybe making the bag a little longer so it fits better.
2. Could be a little better padding on the shoulder straps. –
Dave W - 04/23/2014
– More slip pockets
The large clam shell opening is nice but there are no slips to organize or pockets within it. I wound up getting an additional cosmetic bag to separate food items from the toys that I keep in this area. Wish the changing pad had its own slip pocket like on the padded side of the back pack. Otherwise it is very durable and I like the bag a lot. –
Amy L - 04/18/2014
I purchased the billboard backpack for my husband when our first son was born. We are going six years strong! The bag can hold more that you can imagine as now we have two boys & the "stuff" adds up ;) I was so pleased to have found Dad gear as I was not the type of Mom who wanted frilly diaper bags, these bags fit both our personalities. We also have a billboard mesanger bag & sport bag that have held up just as well. In our opinion these products were WELL WORTH every penny spent! –
Amy K - 04/14/2014
– Gift that receives High-Fives!
My nephew is a hunter, fisherman, and first time dad. I just couldn't see him hauling an oversized purple bag with pink tutus, so I went on the hunt for a diaper bag for him. When I stumbled upon the DadGear website, I thought I found a gold mine. I selected the backpack with the universal camo design and crossed my fingers that he would like it. When he unwrapped his gift at the "co-ed" baby shower, I received high-fives and 'that is awesome' shout-outs from the men. Everyone wanted to know where I got it. Way to go DadGear for making my gift the most popular and clever gift at the shower. My nephew loves it! –
Valerie D - 04/07/2014
– good product
Very happy with the backpack diaper bag.. makes me feel like a kool dad –
octavio - 04/07/2014
– Wish I had this for the 1st Kiddo
I love this bag... let me count the ways!
I love the organization that is provided with the zippered pockets. The netting inside the pockets are nice to see through so you know what is inside. The only thing I would improve is to make the netting somehow flexible to expand a bit for larger items like tylenol bottles/ boxes.
The bag is light weight. I owned the JuJuBe Be Right Back backpack and it was heavy to begin and then you added your stuff and it was too heavy and bulky. This DadGear bag is lightweight and rigid enough for shape prior to packing in all the goods. This bag is not too wide that I hit people when I wear it.
Diaper clips are a great feature but you have to use both hands to clip them on. Not a deal breaker. Just something to note.
I recommend purchasing the addition of the wipes case designed especially for the bag. I did not purchase it because I thought I would just use the flip top wipes bag from Pampers. When the disposable bag gets low, the wipes case gets lost in the section for the wipes. I LOVE that special flap section though!!! I show all my friends.
Oh and I love the design - I got the "Daisy" bag - the not too girlie one so my husband can still use it. I wanted a back pack so bad so that I can have my hands free - If I only get two hands (and not 8 like I need) I want full use while chasing my 3 kids!
Marla Deck - 04/05/2014
– Best Dad Bag
I bought this bag for my husband and it's the perfect dad bag compared to my diaper bag and he actually enjoys carrying it around! We love the color and best of all, it's made in the USA, wa hoo! Love this bag! –
Megan Sullivan - 04/04/2014
– 2nd Time Dad Gift
I bought this bag for my husband to celebrate the birth of our 2nd child. The fabrics and materials are sturdy. The design is well thought out and functional. The diaper hammock and easy access wipes are my husband's favorite features. The light colored interior makes finding items super easy and super fast.
Previously my husband was using grocery tote bags, old back packs and any other sack to avoid lugging around our other generic diaper bag. As a result, we often forgot to pack something, lost items, couldn't find them quickly and even damaged expensive electronics due to sippy cups and bottles leaking because they did not have a dedicated pocket.
The backpack diaper bag is proving to be a benefit to our entire little family. I'm super happy I came across this company and decided to place an order. Overall, it has exceeded my expectations. –
Jenny - 04/02/2014
– Great For Dads!
For our third child, I wanted something other than the Vera Bradley bag my wife had for our first 2 children. I don't feel goofy taking the kids out now caring that flowery bag.
Brendan - 03/25/2014
– Must have for dads.
Completely love this bag. Most practical thing I've purchased for parenthood so far. I can take out my twins and not only feel confident I have everything I need for the outing, I also don't feel insecure about carrying everything in something ugly or designed for women.. Dadgear is a godsend to dads. –
Steve - 03/22/2014
– Nice backpack
I had high expectations for this backpack as it's a bit pricey. I really wanted to give this a 3.5 stars, but since I can't do a half star, I gave them the benefit of the doubt ( and rounded up). The backpack overall is pretty nice. But for this price, I'd expect them to pay attention to the details. For example, the zippers, have no zipper pulls. The shoulder straps could be more padded and are a bit short. Plus the shoulder straps often come loose (I have to use a clip to keep them from slipping out). The pockets inside are all nice and I like the quick access wipes. There's not that many options for specific diaper bag backpacks, so I think this is one of the better choices. –
Chuck - 03/17/2014
– Great product
Bought one for my husband who is a stay at home dad who also homeschools. Thus bag is great for hauling all the baby stuff as well as school stuff. We love the wipes window! –
Cyrena - 03/04/2014
– My Husband loves his Daddy Diaper Backpack
Great backpack with multiple compartments. Lots of storage and convenient access to diaper wipes. Also easy to strap onto the stroller. Perhaps price could be a little more affordable though. –
Annie - 03/03/2014
– Awesome diaper vest
I was at 3 baby showers this week, and no one had ever seen this DiaperVest. It's unique, and practical.
My one disappointment is that there are no waterproof pockets.. For wet clothes or condensation on bottles.
Otherwise, great product –
Fay Algeo - 02/25/2014
– Daddy backpack
Could not have been more pleased with the product. Looks fine on the web sight, but is even more impressive in person. It has many compartments and is made very well! I told everyone at the baby shower about dadgear I purchased the backpack for my son-in-law who will soon be the father of triplets. –
Joann Desario - 02/21/2014
– Great bag, highly recommend DadGear!
Absolutely love my bag! It's practical, not too big and very durable. The quick access wipes are very handy! As a native Coloradan I'm proud to support a local company! –
Kate - 02/14/2014
– Best Diaper Bag!!
We've tried a few different kinds of diaper bags. Finally, when my husband started staying home, he was using a huge gym bag saying that the diaper bags were all a little too feminine and too small. I found this backpack and it has been a life saver! There is so much storage but the bag is not too large, its very deceiving! It still fits me, while fitting him better than any other bag. We are expecting another one in a few months and this bag will provide plenty of space for both of our children! I couldn't suggest this company more! I'm a native Coloradan too... so I'm glad I could support a local company while getting a great product too! –
Casey Melin - 02/12/2014
– HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I recently purchased the camouflage backpack diaper bag to use for our son. I was not only impressed with the quality of the product (It's MADE IN THE U.S.A), but I was also impressed with the communication with Scott. I emailed him awhile back with a question, and within minutes he responded, and was more than helpful. This sealed the deal for me. I've been using my bag for about 3 weeks now, and I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy a Dadgear bag. –
Jason Hudson - 02/12/2014
This product is awesome! I have been a stay at home dad for 4 years. Although we have a small backpack as a diaper bag I disliked carrying it. Since the first time I saw this I wanted one. I finally received it for Christmas. I can easily carry 6 diapers (3 of each size for each child, wipes, and whatever else we need in this vest. I show it to people whenever I get an opportunity. 99% of people can't even tell I am carrying all those things! I have recommended this to tons of people. I know of at least 2 people that have purchased it and love it also. Great product, very high quality. I am actually interested in becoming a distributor in my area. There is a major need for these with all the stay at home dads out there. –
Michael - 01/29/2014
Bought this bag for my husband. He is one guy in a house of girls so I wanted him to have something masculine to carry all of our little girls' pink stuff in. I love the extra pockets and dividers and easy access to wipes. He appreciates that he can wear it as a backpack and not like a purse and still be comfortable carrying little girl in the carrier and be comfortable and not feel like he is dropping anything or continuously having to readjust it all. –
Autumn - 01/20/2014
I had one of these vest for 5 years and when the zipper finally gave out I needed to replace the vest. Even thou I don't have any more small children it is very useful at work I am a paramedic and the pocket come in very handy. Many of my co worker have asked about it and your company has got nothing but great reviews. working in the vest it goes thru a lot of abuse and cleaning and always holds up great. Thanks for such a great product. –
Daniel S - 01/17/2014

Great bag. It shocks everyone when I pull a diaper out of what they think is my laptop bag. –
Steve - 01/06/2014
– Awesome Diaper Bag!
Great product, great looking, super functional!
Only one issue, the lid on the wipes container won't stay shut! –
Matthew Englebert - 12/18/2013
– Dad Gear Beats out Mamma's Designer Bag
My wife and i have a four and half month old daughter. My wife told me i should get my own diaper bag which i was against until i saw what she brought home. Her yellow designer bag was just not going to be on my shoulder at the Broncos game so i purchased a bag from dad gear. This thing has tons of pockets, easy to organize, well thought out product. I can find everything i need with opening the bag and get the job done. In the last four months, my wife has quit using her designer bag and all that is used is the awesome dad gear bag. Works great, looks fun, and is very practical in addition to being a good value. –
Jason Golden - 12/10/2013
– Awesome backpack!
I love all the space and pockets. Fits everything. Especially love the baby wipes compartment at the bottom. Super convenient. –
Mary - 12/06/2013
– Backpack diaper bag
This diaper bag is great. Easy to carry since it's a backpack and not a perse/handbag. It's got plenty if compartments to keep your baby and you organized. I love the backpack. I guarantee any new parent weather it's a mom or dad would love the diaper backpack. –
Dane - 12/04/2013
– Great for the husband
My husband is a manly man so the camo backpack was perfect for him, it fits his style perfectly and is as functional as any moms diaper bag we LOVE it!!!! –
Heather - 12/02/2013
– Great Dad Vest!
We purchased the Diaper Vest for two of our employees. They loved them! These dads are hands on! They will impress others with their preparedness when out and about with their babies! –
Claudia Engelbracht - 12/02/2013
– Great diaper bag!
Great quality and love the look! Not too girly and not too manly! :) –
Kari Bonde - 11/27/2013
– Big for small guys
Good vest. Too big for short/small people. Smallest size is medium. –
Tom J - 11/04/2013
– Great option for active parents
She has her own diaper bag, but this is mine/ours. So much easier to carry. Keeps both hands free. Ample space. Comes with the changing pad. Works well with the Bjorn. Have the orange retro stripe and cannot get it mixed with all of the black bags at big events. –
Zach - 10/26/2013
– Pretty happy
Overall I do like the bag I purchased from dadgear. The only complaint I have so far is with the shoulder strap. I wish that it had a swivel instead of being sewn directly to the bag. The strap sometimes get twisted up, and with a swivel it would be much easier dealing with it, instead of having to untangle it before putting it on. –
Jeff - 10/24/2013
– Nice backpack
Bag is manly and practical at the same time. It's as advertised. –
BB - 10/22/2013
– Great product!
Great product! –
Jay - 10/22/2013
– Great pack pack
bought for a buddy that just had a baby....I wish this gear was around when my two kids were in diapers. Looks like a back pack and has all the ammenties of a diaper bag and then some!
We thought out in design with a spot for wipes bottles phones etc.
I would highly recommend Dad Gear to any expecting Dads! –
mike - 10/21/2013
– best gift for new dad
I ordered the DadGear diaper vest for my husband's birthday and it is awesome!! It's made with high quality materials and fits great. He really wants to go do things with our new baby and now he doesn't have to carry around my diaper bag. All of his friends want one now too. This is a great product! –
Megan Michelson - 10/19/2013
– Best purchase ever!!!
We bought the dadgear back pack when my son was almost 5 months. I wish we had it from the start! We had been trying various expensive diaper bags but no matter what we tried, it took too long to find things and it was always a pain to carry with the baby and the carseat. We got the backpack and it has made everything so much easier! I can carry the backpack and my now 6 1/2 month old (20lbs) with no problem! Best purchase ever and I highly recommend skipping the traditional diaper bag and going straight to this!!! –
Jenn Martinkovic - 10/12/2013
– the Ultimate Diaper Bag!
I am a father of a 14 month old baby and I needed a diaper bag but not a "mommy" diaper bag. I wanted something that looked good but had to have easy access. My DadGear Original Messenger looks great and is a fully functional utility. The flap makes for easy access as do the cleverly placed zipper pockets where I keep all my diaper changing essentials. The bag is tough and just the right size for everything I need when my boy and I have a day out together. Also I get compliments on the look of it from time to time. Compliments...for a diaper bag..awesome. This bag was well worth everything I paid for it. –
Charles Finley - 10/10/2013
– Greatest Man Bag Ever
I bought this as an office gift to a first time dad in our office. I bought an extra front flap as this first time dad is a swag dresser. He loved it! Fit his manly ways and had a place for everything that will be needed. Very nicely made and compartments for just about everything needed. I would highly recommend this for anyone dad out there! Awesome product - the price is great as well! –
Glenda Sutherland - 10/03/2013
– LOVE ME BAG!
What's not to love. Plenty of space. Well designed. And YES it's made for a man! I get several compliments on it! Would refer this to any and every expecting dad or a dad that doesn't want to carry around his wife's diaper bag.
ONE HAPPY CUSTOMER,
Alex G. –
Alex G. - 10/02/2013
– The PERFECT gift for dad
My son LOVES his vest! He finds it so easy to change a diaper and basically take his kids anywhere, hands free to hold them.
I also bought another vest for my stepson who will be a daddy in November! While everyone else bought cutsie baby stuff, I brought a present for the DAD!!! They loved it and it fit perfectly!
Thank you do much for creating items for the dad!
The VEST is genius!!! –
Iris - 10/02/2013
– Very useful and easily organized bag!
I had a much larger, more traditional diaper bag and decided to get something new for 2 reasons. 1) My original bag was SO big, I could never find anything. It was a never ending pit. 2) I didn't find the traditional shoulder strap convenient. I carry a messenger bag for my daily purse so I wanted something along the same lines that I could throw my phone and wallet in and still feel like I normally would with my purse.
I use the phone pocket for small things like sunscreen and ibuprofen and it works perfectly. I also LOVE the side zip pocket for bottles. I've already recommended the bag to many people who were like me and don't want a diaper-y diaper bag.
There is one thing I don't like. The material used for the shoulder strap is fairly smooth and silky which makes it slip and adjust on its own rather easily. I think if a thicker, slightly rougher material was used (my purse uses this type of strap), it would prevent the strap from accidentally lengthening. I understand that some would think this would make it hurt your shoulder, but with clothes, the thicker material isn't bothersome.
Overall a GREAT bag! –
Ashley - 10/01/2013
– Vest was a hit!
I just want to let you know how pleased we were with the diaper vest. The quality was outstanding and the orange color was perfect. The recipient absolutely loved it and it was the hit of the baby shower. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again! –
Diane B - 09/26/2013
– For the stay home dad
I am Currently 38 weeks pregnant so we haven't really begun to use the diaper bag. We did pack the babies items in it for the hospital. My husband will be staying home with our daughter when she's born and I go back to work. I told him to pick out a diaper bag he liked or I was picking the Pinkest one I could find. He got right on top of picking a "manly bag" For as much as the bag is geared for men, I really like the quality and style of the bag as a woman. You can tell there was a thought process when designing the bag. So far it's great!! Thanks again. –
Jessica S-W - 09/22/2013
– Wish it were mine
I purchased the messenger bag and an additional flap for my brother & sister-in-law and it's awesome. Very well made, plenty of room, and extremely good looking. They absolutely loved it and can't wait to use it with their little one. I will definitely be buying on for myself when the time comes. –
Christy M - 09/21/2013

The thing is awesome. I searched in stores for weeks trying to find one that was stylish and fit my needs and had no luck what so ever until I found your website. I have already passed along the website to 4 coworkers who will be new fathers soon. –

Have had my dad gear bag for 4 years now and it is still as good as the day my dad bought it for me. I use it everyday whether I have the kids or not! Love this bag and recommend it to everyone! –
Jonathan E - 09/10/2013
– Great Product!!!
A must buy for all dads. Great compartments, design makes sense, and very great material used. You won't be sorry you purchased this –
Paul C - 09/09/2013
– no relative to the purse
The backpack diaper bag is a great gift for dads to care for their infant without having to swing a pink or purple diaper bag under their arm. It has room for all the essentials and handy enough that most can be accessed with one hand. It's great to keep dad's involved and recognize him as an equal parent. –
Beth S - 09/09/2013
– For my sons' 1st baby
My son liked having a backpack to use instead of the typical diaper bag. It has all the pockets and easy access for anything and a little bit of everything they will need. Very good quality. Thanks for taking care of the dads. –
carla - 09/01/2013
– Excellent bag!
This a great bag. The best diaper bag backpack I've found. It can fit a ton of stuff without feeling like it's too bulky. The only improvements that would make it even better are for the zippered bottle pockets on the sides to be insulated, a bungee on the back to hold jackets or whatever, and maybe some straps on the sides to cinch the bag and make it more compact for times when you aren't bringing a bunch of stuff. Otherwise, a fantastic bag! –
Dina - 08/10/2013
– Best bag ever!
Just got our new Diaper bag, my Husband and I are very happy w/ it, it's very spacious has lots of compartments and I will be able to use it for 3 of my kids or even beyond diaper bag use, materials seems durable, i like the wipes compartment the stroller straps, top diaper compartment and spacious 2 bottle compartment with netting on the side for water or sippy cups for my older kids, it does lack a insulated milk compartment but easily fixed by having a insulated pouch inserted in the bottle compartment. I needed a replacement part and emailed them the request, they replied and sent me the part I needed the next day, very happy with their service. Will definitely recommend to all expecting moms and dads! –
Maria D - 08/08/2013
– Great gift of dad
This is the perfect gift for a new or soon to be dad. The design is very functional with convenient pouches for bottles, diapers, toys, etc. and it looks great. –
Lindsay B - 08/02/2013
– great quality item
I bought this for my son. Baby is due in September so bag has not yet been used. (My son thought it was a briefcase! Ha!) I was very impressed with the quality and the thoughtful design. I expect the bag to be easy to use and to hold up for a long time. (Since I have given the bag to my son I'm nor sure it's the "original messenger.") –

– Great idea, my husband cant wait to wear it!
I gave this to my husband for a Father's Day gift. While our little girl isn't due for a couple more months, and he hasn't actually worn/used it yet. He's excited to still have his man card and not look like he's carrying a purse when he goes out with our daughter. –
Melissa - 07/18/2013
As a stay at home dad, you learn very quickly that the world of babies is geared to wee ones and mommies. Thanks DadGear for looking out for the all the dads out there raising kids. First, its great not to be wearing a purse around with your kid, and second, the accesibilty of the wipes container is pure genius. Even when I lebd someone a wipe for their kid they are amazed at the ease of this feature and shocked that nobody else thought of it. We have given the messenger to several friends now and they all just rave as well. Keep up the good work. –

– Best Dad Bag Out There
My husband and I searched for a "dad diaper bag" for a while and there was never anything out there that was suitable for my husband to use. We came across a Dad Gear bag and my husband knew it was for him. It's durable, love all the insides and outside compartments, and best of all it looks like a laptop bag. We are on our second bag and love it!!! –

This bag has been great. My little guy will be 3 next month and its still going strong. No signs of breaking down at all. Its deceptively big inside and has been able to carry diapers, blanket, change of clothes, and few small toys all at the same time. Being able to access everything without taking it off your shoulder is huge! –

– Too small, cumbersome to flip open
This bag is very attractive and stylish, but is pretty small and very cumbersome to flip open because the front flap side is so heavy it tips the whole bag over. I recently flew with my baby and this bag, and once I loaded in a handful of diapers, burp cloths, a spare emergency bottle, a light jacket, a couple teething toys and a backup outfit for baby, I could barely cram the thing closed. Wish I'd gotten the bigger backpack style instead. This small one is great for routine day-to-day trips around town, but that's it. Not very flexible. –

– Unique and useful.
Purchased this item to give a s a gift to one of my best buddies on his first baby's birth. Their response was (and I quote):
"thanks for the unique and very useful gift, it's very, very cool". –
JC Lopez - 07/27/2012
– Great for multiples
I have 18 month boy girl twins and I'm able to fit everything we need in here. I like that it's virtually one-handed -- in a public restroom, I can hang the pack off the end of the pull down changing table, take out the diaper mat, access the diapers and the wipes while keeping a hand on the baby. I agree with the previous poster that insulated pockets to keep bottles cool would have been nice when they were younger. Mine is also starting to fray on the inside and those loose threads get caught in the zipper. My only other complaint is that it would be nice to have more storage for wipes -- perhaps add a feature that would allow a standard plastic wipes box to fit in the bottom and use the wipes dispenser to access that? With multiples, a day trip runs us out of wipes, forcing us to carry a large plastic box around anyway, defeating the purpose of how nice and compact the container is. Still, an amazing pack and I like that I'll be able to use it for books and maybe my laptop when my kiddos are FINALLY potty trained. –
Mom to twins - 07/10/2012
– Great Bag
I have been using this bag (Messenger Diaper Bag) for 3 years now with my first daughter and with another on the way it shows no sign of wearing out so it will see many more years of service as well. I told my wife if I had to carry the diaper bag then it had to be something I liked. Bingo! –
Justin - 07/05/2012
– 2 years and no problems
This bag has taken a beating! My daughter is just over 2 years old and this bag has been with us from when we left the hospital to just this past weekends trip to the aquarium. It's been over stuffed, dropped, splattered with every baby food you could think of and we've never had a problem with it. –
Luca - 06/04/2012
– These are all wrapped with care!
Certainly I am a bit prejudiced as I personally wrap all gifts from the DadGear warehouse, but I take care in each and every package so hopefully the receiver feels good about the gift! –

This is the best diaper bag! I can fit so much in it. It is the best bag for traveling as well. –

I want the billboard backpack # 133. Your bags are designed great! –

– BABYBJORN Synergy - Super product for hot areas
My little one is quite hot-natured and sweats easily, AND I live in Texas! This product worked quite well, compared to other products. I could keep him close (which he liked) without worrying about him sweating to death, because the fabric is quite breathable. It's easy to wash, holds up well, and after 8 months of routine use, it still looks great. –
Kerri T. - 01/28/2012
– So Roomy
We have this bag. It is so roomy. There are compartments for everything. I love the bottle compartments on either side. –
Anita L. - 01/25/2012
– Great bag
This bag is great for dads on the go with baby. There are several compartments which make for easy access to baby essentials. The design is cool and can be used for other purposes beyond baby.
JM - 01/15/2012
– This deserves 10 stars!
This deserves 10 stars! I wish I knew about this 2 yrs ago. This thing can hold so much; 5 board books, coloring book, 16pc crayons, 2 chng of clothes, a few diapers, potty seat, basic first aid kit, 1 pr socks, snacks, my wallet, small camera, small video cam (flip size), sippy cup, bottled water, GameBoy thing, GameBoy thing, etchasketch. This thing is the greatest!!! –
Amy S. - 01/11/2012
– Excellent product
Excellent product, grandson loves the vest. Daughter has 2 year old, wishes she had one! We are spreading the word. –
Bernadette - 01/10/2012
– Thanks for making our life easier
I purchased the bag for my daughter as a gift for Christmas. She had a baby in April and had bought a bag for her husband so he could have his own personal bag. She loves it and will tell everyone about it and where it came from. Thanks for making our life easier. –
Jane B. - 01/08/2012
I received the messenger bag for my newborn son. I have spent some time playing with the messenger bag, and was eager to let you guys know my inexpert review. I will start by saying that I have gone through an average of one knapsack a year simply through wear and tear. I do not think I am overly hard on them, but they simply wear out faster than greased lightning. A few years ago I got a 5.11 Tactical knapsack, the 12-Hour bag. It is tough as nails, and I have every confidence it will last me at least a decade. As of this evening it still looks as good as it did the day I slid it out of its plastic bag. Your messenger bag seems to be in the same league as the 5.11 bag I have. The nylon sidewalls feel heavy and sturdy, and although the zippers aren't YKK they feel heavy enough (at least the tabs are the same size as the ones on my Carhartt jacket) and don't feel as though they will break if I look at them wrong. I am very impressed with the tear-away-and-replace front flap. I was nervous at first about the velcro strip, but it is nearly invisible when looked at from any direction other than the back. It is some serious velcro, it feels almost like the automotive-grade stuff that NASCAR mechanics use. A few of my friends are working on their second or third kid, and one of them at least I think was using a cargo jacket as his diaper "bag". I will definitely let him know about you guys, since this second kid is a daughter and I think he's getting nervous about the status of his Man Card. Your heavy-duty and decidedly manly bags should help reaffirm his faith in his masculinity. –

– Satisfied Customer
Thank you for my awesome Dad Diaper Bag, first one EVER. Who would have thought that a diaper bag would help a Dad look cool, not me! But I am stoked to sport this thing. My wife would not allow me to carry my hunting pack as my bag, so this is the next best thing. DadGear Rules! Thank you again for this gift to us first time Dad's... –
Robby B. - 12/20/2011
– Awesome Bag!
My husband prefers well-made products so when I saw this bag I knew it would be the perfect bag for him. It has beautiful double stitching on the bag and the colors to choose from were nice earth-tones. I knew any color would work but I went with Steel. He loves it and was excited to have his own bag. This bag is well-made and is worth the price! –
Brenda - 12/15/2011
– Loves his vest and backpack
My son loves his DadGear vest and backpack! It was the perfect birthday gift for him. He particularly likes the vest, as it allows quick, out-the-door trips with the new baby and the 2-year-old. He said his friends were very impressed when he whipped out supplies as needed, including wet wipes, waters, gloves and even a flashlight. I've told everyone I know about your website and your wonderful items. –
Debbie L. - 11/30/2011
– More handy than a diaper bag
I really do LOVE my backpack, so much more handy than a diaper bag, especially for traveling, it even went with me all the way to Germany :)) –

– great product
I just wanted you to know that I went to a baby shower last Saturday. The dad loved his Dadgear Rock and Roll messenger bag stuffed with Rockabye Baby CD's and Daddy-themed onesies. Thanks again for making such a great product. I will be ordering another bag soon. –

Charles R. - 09/19/2011
I ordered 2 of your bags for 2 males who are having babies this Fall. We filled them with all kinds of baby items and showed them how to use and access everything, along with making them watch the video! They were amazed and basically had no idea how to do anything so this was a huge help for them since they are both first time Dad's. They really loved the bags especially the flap designs. They were the perfect gift at the perfect tme and they were very appreciative. I think your bags are fantastic especially the ability to hang them off a stroller....BRILLIANT! Access to the baby wipes and bottles from the outside...BRILLIANT yet again! –
Heather N. - 09/02/2011
– son loves the vest
THANK YOU so much! My son LOVES the vest! Thank you for creating something great for dads. Back in my day, everything was only for the mother. –
Iris - 09/02/2011
– top notch
Wanted to express our gratitude for the new backpack. It arrived yesterday and are QUITE pleased with the new improvements you've made. The side elastic paockets are a GREAT addition! Also, sewing on the inner clips was a wonderfu idea, b/c that was something that broke quickly. Good thinking! Again, thank you, we couldn't be more pleased; this operation is top notch. –
Adrienne J. - 09/01/2011

I LOVE the backpack!!! My sons who are giving this to their cousin, liked it to! In fact, my older son had to show the wife… –

All around, the Dad Gear backpack is a great bag and we highly recommend one for the dad in your life. He will thank you for it! –

I just wanted to write and say thank you one more time for my awesome diaper backpack! It was really easy to review because I genuinely love it so much. My wife has given up her "cuter" diaper bag and started carrying the backpack! –

Everyone loves my dadgear bag! I have two close friends who I hope follow my lead and shop at your store. My son is almost two weeks old now so the more I get out the more my dad bag gets noticed! Have a great weekend! –

We've already shown another couple the bag we bought-they are due to have their first baby a month after me! I'm hoping to get them a bag for their shower gift:) –

– I like his better
I have to say…I got my husband one of these bags for his birthday. I have a froo froo bag I carry myself. At least I used to carry a froo froo bag. I like his better. It's our main diaper bag now. –
Caryn B - 06/16/2011
This was given as a gift for an expectant daughter and son-in-law, so it hasn't been called into use as of yet. The initial perusal of the product seemed to be excellent. The only thing that would be an improvement would be some insulated bottle/can holders. It is a large bag with inside pockets and a changing pad. The access of the wipes from the front looks to be handy.
Chloe - 06/14/2011
– We get tons of compliments
The bag is totally awesome. We get tons of compliments. My husband is the primary caregiver of our kids. We have a 7 year old and just adopted a newborn. He researched bags and chose yours hands down. I love his bag more than my Storksak--I'm not kidding. It's so organized and easy to use. Nothing slides around--everything stays in its compartment. The one thing I would say is slightly annoying is the velcro on the back of the front flap that attches to the main part of the bag. –
Liz B - 06/11/2011
– No, I'll take my own
The husband who received the Rock and roll bag really liked it and is using it. His wife told me that she handed her already filled diaper bag when taking their son somewhere. He said "No, I'll take my own." –
Ann H. - 06/09/2011
– Good buy
I thought it was pretty expensive...but it was worth it. Well made, tough. My husband thinks it looks great (I wanted him to have his own so I could have a stylish, girly one). He feels like Jack Bauer from 24! LOVE the easy access diaper wipes feature. It's very roomy. I don't regret the expense at all.
Kallie - 04/30/2011
– Nice, smaller bag
This bag doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that many of the larger bags have, but we wanted a smaller, simpler starter bag for shorter trips/outings, and this will certainly fit the bill. I really hated having an oversized bag with my older daughter for shorter trips. It was just huge and cumbersome and absolutely unnecessary. So, we knew we'd eventually want two bags, one for quick trips and another one from when we're doing major trips (like road trips, or flying out of town, etc.). This bag will be great for the day-to-day, shorter trips and errands. There's lots of pockets/storage, and we especially like the fact that it doesn't look like other typical diaper bags, and the bright color is awesome and fun. Once our twin daughters are bigger and we need to worry about packing more stuff (larger clothes, bottles, snacks, larger/more toys, etc.) we'll consider a bigger bag. However, for the first several months, this will work great. Part of why I chose this bag is that I'm interested in the larger backpack bag from this brand, so I figured getting the cheaper, smaller one might be a good way to see how we liked the durability and organization of this bag before investing in the more expensive bigger one. So far, we're please with this purchase. –
LeiLani - 04/19/2011
– no longer embarrassed
Your products are phenomenal and last forever! I am no longer embarrassed to be carrying around a diaper bag. –
Ryan M. - 04/18/2011
– made him feel included
No one else at their baby shower thought of getting the new daddy a gift. He wears his vest all the time and it was the highlight of his day--it finally made him feel included in the excitement of expecting their first baby. –
Angela H. - 04/17/2011
– products are great
Your products are great. I buy one for for each of my friends who are new dads. I wish I had known about these options the first time I became a dad seven years ago. –
Alexander L. - 04/03/2011
– creates a stir
It is time for another baby shower, so I am ordering my ususal gift--a messenger bag for the dad. The dad seems to be the forgotten person at a baby shower. The Dadgear bags always create a stir at the showers. –
Ann H. - 03/20/2011
– great product
Every time someone has a baby, we feel this is an appropriate gift for the gentlement we work with. We think you have a great product and continue to spread the word. –
Lynn W. - 03/11/2011
– personal commitment
I've made it my personal commitment to buy every new dad I know a diaper bag from your company so they don't ever have to do what I had to do while looking for a masculine diaper bag (and that is carry some fluorescent flowery girly bag)! –
Dexter B. - 03/10/2011
– WINNER, WINNER!
After scouring the net for the best backpack to use as a diaper bag, I ended up getting the DadGear Backpack Diaper Bag. Reviewers said that it was great for more than one child, had tons of storage, organization, etc. It has pockets on the sides for drinks, a compartment for wipes, one for diapers, and it's just a solid bag. Bought this to replace my small awkward diaper bag! –
J. King - 02/28/2011
– Awesome bag for any Dad!
My husband loves this diaper bag and I love that he will actually carry it! Convenient pocket for wipes and tons of other space for all those little things! A++++ –
S. Hill - 02/19/2011
– Nice but heavy
My husband and I chose this diaper bag because it's not cutesy or girly, and he wouldn't feel silly carrying it. It's good quality and looks very easy to wipe clean (our baby's still 3 wks out). It's got nice space without being huge and a built-in, refillable wipes-holder. We did decide, though, that this would be his exclusive diaper bag, because even empty it's surprisingly heavy! My husband has no problem with the weight, and really likes it (it IS called "DadGear"), so I still recommend it, but filled up I think it could be a pain for new mothers to haul around. –
Noelle - 02/16/2011
– LOVES the bag
He LOVES the bag. Really great colors and design too. –
Andrea F - 02/07/2011

Bought my first dadgear messenger bag nearly 2 years ago, as a gift to my husband, right before our son was born. We still take it everywhere with us. –
Thuy C. - 02/04/2011

I got your info from a friend to buy for my son-in-law. He loved the vest! –
Donna L. - 01/20/2011
– Perfect for Daddy
I purchased this for my brother and he couldn't be happier. Good storage, easy to carry. I definitely recommend. –
Kat - 01/20/2011
– making my wife jealous
I am definitely getting a lot of compliments and I think I saved MANY new and soon to be dads from the many lame baby bags out there. Also making the women, especially my wife, jealous of the hidden little bottle compartment that prevents me from opening the bag –
Dominic C. - 01/17/2011
– Great bag for Dad
I really love this diaper bag which I initially bought to use as the only diaper bag for us when we go out. It's a great color (true to picture) and has some very nifty features, with the wipes case on the front being one of the handiest. It also has stroller clips which we use constantly and the 2 side pockets for bottles (we use them for sippy cups) are fantastic and have easy access from the exterior. The inside is super roomy and has plenty of pockets for organizing. I also like the zipped pocket on the front for quick and easy access and I didn't realize until recently but there are also two slim zippered pockets on the front panel on either side of the wipes. It's plenty big enough to fit everything we need for a full day out. I also have to say my husband likes carrying it since it looks just like a regular messenger bag. I do have to say though that I gave up carrying it around for little trips out during the day with my kid. It became too heavy and big for that use in addition to carrying a purse with it so I got a Skip Hop bag/purse to carry for myself when I'm alone and ditched the purse. We use this though on longer outings and when we're together. We've taken it on a very muddy trip and it wiped up really easily with a damp paper towel. I'd really recommend it for long outings and for your man to carry. –
Judy L. - 12/02/2010
– easy to carry
We enjoy the fact that the backpack is large, easy to carry, easy access. I also got my husband the jacket which he uses every day. –
Blythe B. - 11/11/2010
– Great bag
This bag was for my boyfriend because we decided we each wanted our own diaper bag. So far, we have been using only his, since we've been going everywhere together. Our son is now 10 days old, so the bag is still pretty new to us. However, it seems to be pretty great. Probably the best thing about it is that it really doesn't look like a diaper bag. It just looks like a typical messenger bag that a guy would take to work or something. It has plenty of room for the things we need, and I like the separate zippered compartments on each end for bottles, drinks, etc. I use them to bring a drink for myself. –
Alison - 10/29/2010
– still in great shape
We got it three and a half years ago for our first daughter. It is being used for baby number two now and is still in great shape (we are not nice to it). Thank you for coming up with such a great product. –
Mike and Shauna N. - 10/16/2010
– couldn't be happier
Your staff was phenomenal in finding me the right billboard style that would fit my style. I couldn't be happier with the bag. It works great for me. I carry it every day. It is super comfortable. Everything is accessible easily and has enough room for everything I need. –
David L. - 10/07/2010
I am planning to give the vest I purchased to my husband when we have the baby--I am so impressed with it! Very clever idea –
Theresa C. - 10/05/2010
– the hit of both baby showers
I've purchased two of your jackets for friends and they've been the hit of both baby showers. –
Lane K. - 10/05/2010
– We like it, but its not perfect
This bag is plenty big and east to carry. However, the built in wipe container isn't sealed well enough for the wipes to stay wet in a low humidity environment. For the high price we paid for this bag I expected it to function as well as a $2 wipe box you can get at the grocery store. –
John C. - 09/25/2010
– very intuitive
My diaper bag is very girly and I think it's mean to make the husband carry that around-haha. Anyway, he absolutely LOVES it. It's very well made and has some great design work. I love that you can access the bottles from the inside and out via the side pockets. He finds the bag very intuitive. –
Kelley G. - 08/18/2010
– Great Bag for Everyone
I purchased this bag for myself after my wife bought a different "girly" diaper bag. We both loved it so much that she decided to steal this one from me and it is now the only one that we use. The bag is very functional and roomy, and the accesible wipe holder is great! –
Chris - 08/11/2010
– my husband felt so special
It's well made and well thought out. My husband felt so special on Father's day. We can't wait for our baby to arrive to fill it up:) –
Trisha M - 07/19/2010
– love all the room
What I love most is all the room! I've got two kids under the age of three and I really need all the space it offers. Of course it wouldn't be a dad-bag w/o the great art designs, so that goes without saying. –
Luke A - 05/24/2010
– absolutely rocks
Your product absolutely rocks. I tell every dad that is expecting to check it out. I will continue to promote for you as your product is that good. –
Alex N. - 05/24/2010
– James Bond of fathers
The vest is great and makes me feel like the James Bond of fathers when it comes to diaper changes. –
Tim M. - 05/06/2010
– total bag
Iam a single dad and really find this diaper bag to not look like the typical diaper bag on the outside but on the inside has all the space and pockets needed for everything. It is so stylish. I get lots of comments when I am out with my son. –
David B. - 04/26/2010
– sex neutral bag
This is a sex neutral bag for carrying baby's gear. It is very subtle and has lots of organizational features. –
LFW - 04/21/2010
– Awesome Bag
Awesome bag. I love it. It's cool, and it's far more functional than a useless designer bag that most women have and force upon their husbands. –
Derek D. - 04/19/2010
– What a great concept
My brother in law absolutely loves his backapck diaper bag. He is a very neat and organized person. He is a new dad and is currently "at home" with his 4 month old twin daughters. He was so excited to show me the compartments of the bag and is especially excited about the wipes compartment. The bag I picked out for him matches their double jogger stroller. What a great concept. I'll be ordering another one for another brother in law whose 3rd child was born 2 weeks ago. –
Karen M. - 04/18/2010
– One very satisfied customer
I came across multiple mentions of how great the DadGear customer service was. Your timely, informative, and rectifying response confirms those opinions, hands down! –
Steven - 04/01/2010
Fabulous! Outstanding quality and customer service. I ordered the messenger bag for a baby shower. Why should the mom get all the presents? –
Ann H. - 03/25/2010
– Cool Diaper Vest
Our newborn son would like to thank you. He's so enthusiastic that his dad has such a cool diaper vest! Even his family and friends like daddy's gadget! Thanks to all of you! –
Bert V. - 02/23/2010
– Really satisfied with the quality
I was looking for a good diaper bag and found you guys online. Really satisfied with the quality of the bag, and the service your company provided. Ordering was simple, and all of my friends (who are also dad's) think the bag is awesome. Now I can take my son outside in style. –
Matthew K. - 02/20/2010
– go-to baby gift
I two bags I've purchased already have been quite the hit - and recommended as future gifts. I wish I'd found your products sooner. The DadGear backpack is now my go-to baby gift. One that I know is helpful and adaptable as the baby grows. Thanks for such a great product. –
Alicia A. - 02/12/2010
– met all his needs
My husband twittered about the bag the day he got it, and has been advocating it to all who will listen. He loves the fact that there was a diaper bag out there that said 'men are prents too' and that it met all his needs. –
Lisette D. - 01/31/2010
– he loves it
I purchased the fleece for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. He actually shows it off to his friends - those with and without children. –
Alison G. - 01/28/2010
I bought one of your diaper bags as a Christmas gift for my husband. He was mortified at the thought of toting around the diaper bags we were seeing in stores. I actually read an article about DadGear awhile back and went online to see what you had. I loved everything and my husband is pretty psyched that he can look like a guy and still have a baby. –
Nina - 01/28/2010
– Love your backpack
We love your backpack! It is so much easier to manage everything! We are especially excited to use it on our trip to Disney World next month! We have recommended it to all of our friends and will be buying another soon for a shower gift! –
Jennifer M. - 01/27/2010
– Loved this cool bag!
This bag really helped my husband feel hip carrying a diaper bag. I had planned to get a more feminine diaper bag for me to carry, but I just ended up using this one, too, because I liked it so much. The only thing I don't like is that the bottom part of the clasp bangs against the bag and makes kind of an annoying sound if you don't fasten it. Overall, both my husband and I love it!
K - 01/14/2010
– Perfect Size
I really enjoy it. It's the perfect size, and the wipe holder is great. It works great and I show it off to everyone. I have many friends having babies, so I spread the word about your site… –
Ryan S. - 01/03/2010
– Great for hauling stuff for multiples!
I think we went through 5 other diaper bags before finding this gem! With 18 month B/G twins, we still haul a lot of stuff even just to go out to eat. This bag is great for the storage capacity. You can fit plenty of diapers in the top pocket. The front pocket is great for things you need easy access to and the huge back section holds a ton of whatever you need to take - clothes, toys, extra food, etc. All in all, I can hold all the kids' stuff, PLUS my wallet, keys, lipgloss, etc. I also like the wipes dispenser on the front for easy access when I need to clean the kids' hands. I don't have to dig to the bottom to find them. The two, side bottle pockets are great for sippy cups of water, but I would not be as happy with them if I was still carrying around milk bottles that I wanted to stay cold, because they are not insulated. (They are also pretty narrow.) My only other con is that this is a LONG backpack and I am a short woman (5'2"). So it hits pretty far down on my rear end. But for the convenience of carrying EVERYTHING I want to and still having my hands free to deal with the twins, this diaper bag can not be beat.
Dallas - 01/01/2010
– good bag
First time parents. We like it. Lots of compartments and works well. We like the wipe thing and that is why we bought it. Not disappointed at all and no complaints. –
D. Taylor - 11/27/2009
– A diaper bag for Daddy
My husband asked me to get a diaper bag that was gender neutral and that he would not be embarrassed to carry in public. I searched long and far for a daddy diaper bag that would be big enough to carry everything we needed for our everyday outings -- extra clothes for those diaper blowouts, diapers/wipes, toys, sippy cup/snacks, my wallet/phone/keys. While I like the look of this bag (we have it in blue), I find it a bit narrow. There are a bunch of pockets on the inside of the bag and while that is a good thing, once you put anything into the pockets there isn't much room in the main compartment. The measurements are comparable to a regular messenger bag. We will keep using it though since it makes daddy happy! –

– Such a great product
I enjoy my DadGear messenger bag. I try to show it to whomever I see with babies. I really like how the inside is so durable. My main reason for buying was definitely the wipes container and accessibilty. People are really impressed by it as well. Thank you for sucha great product. Continue the good work! –

– Good find!
Although it's a DadGear-branded bag, I ordered this for both me and my husband to share. I did a lot of research and comparison shopping before making this purchase. Here's a summary -- Pros: neutral color/design, built-in (and refillable) wipes case, separate pocket for changing pad, stroller straps, top handle, sits upright, 2 interior pockets (one small, one large), adjustable shoulder strap. Cons: synthetic material odor, stiff material, small changing mat. Overall, it's a good find!

– Good fit and quality
I loved the vest. It was a gift for a co-worker. I was impressed with the good fit and quality. I recommend your products to others. –

– Excellent product
As the user of the product (i.e. the Dad), I want to say how impressed I am with it. Its size, functionality, and appearance have all met or exceeded expectations. I have received numerous compliments on my backpack. Most people are completely "blown away" when they realize it is a diaper bag and not a regular backpack. Excellent product!!! –

– We love our backpack!
We love our DadGear backpack! Hnags at the right angle on the stoller (you don’t kick it when you walk), so many compartments for everything we could possibly need. The diaper pocket on top is so handy and I love the bottle pockets! They're so big, we can even fir the big bottles for adults! When I ordered the bag I somehow missed that it had the refillable wipes compartment. It was a great surprisewhen we got it! I commend DadGear on the ingenuity! GREAT PRODUCT! –

– Not too bulky
The bag is awesome and surprisingly light despit the design. The material it is made with is soft and light. Size-wise it's nice. Not too bulky. The only possible drawback is the wipes container doesn't seem to be 100% air tight. –

– Good design, good quality
I bought a diaper jacket for an alternate purpose - to wear on plane rides, keep all my electronic gadgets handy and not accidentally leave them on a plane. The diaper pockets are the perfect size for a Kindle 2, including its case. The two zippered pockets work well for an iPod and a cell phone. The side pockets are handy for bottles of water or a map. I can even use the back pocket to carry a magazine or such, instead of a changing pad. This jacket is everything advertised, so I'm a satisfied customer. Good design, good quality. –

– Twin Mom approves
This bag has enough compartments of varying sizes that it accomodates everything that I need for my twosome. Right now I have it configured for 2 bottles on one side, juice or water bottle refills on the other side pocket, diapers and first aid items in the 2nd compartment, books and my wallet, etc in the first, toys in the biggest, and handy snacks in the smaller top part. The biggest compartment is big enough to put sand toys for both of them in and whatever else. Everything is conveniently placed! I used to have a bag work and a diaper bag for the kids, but now I just combine the two so I don't feel like a pack animal. Excellent! –

– Absolutely fantastic diaper bag!
After conducting extensive diaper bag research, I found a bag that either parent could carry (a definite plus, as some diaper bags are "girly"), with organization to spare, plenty of room, plus an ergonomic backpack design that makes it easy to manage the kids while out and about: the Dad Gear Backpack Diaper Bag. Can't say enough good things about this bag! First, the wipes are easily accessible without even opening the pack, via a flip-down compartment on the outside. Genius! Second, there is a pocket for diapers that's on the very top of the bag, so you never have to dig around for them. Next, there are two deep side pockets (one on each side), and I routinely fit four cans of premade formula on one side, and a bottle on the other side with a zip-lock bag of extra drop-in bottle liners. Then there are two mesh pockets on the outside of the bag, perfectly sized for a sippy cup or spare bottle (or even my own water bottle). There are two organizational pockets in the front, one of which I use to store diaper supplies (lotions/creams, changing pad, extra wipes, hand sanitizer and the like), and the other I use for crayons, books, and a zip-lock bag with a bib and baby spoon. Finally, there's a huge middle pocket, which I use to store a spare outfit for each child (right down to the socks, in case of catastrophe), snacks for the toddler, baby food for the baby, toys, coloring books, board books and a few other odds and ends that make life easier. This bag is comfortable to carry, as well. We live close to Disney, and have used it on our frequent, all-day park excursions. The straps and the design of the bag make it easy to manage, and I highly recommend it to parents with more than one child! Worth the money! Daddy will thank you. –

– Good for dads
We were looking for a bag that both mom and dad could carry without looking like a complete idiot, and this is about the only one out there. The bag is very well constructed, and so far I can't find anything wrong with it. In fact, when the bag came, the changing pad was not included. However - a testament to the customer service - when I complained about it, I was sent the missing part and had it within 2 days! I would definitely recommend this bag.
