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! –

– 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! –

Very happy with the backpack diaper bag.. makes me feel like a kool dad –

– 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!

– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
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
– 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 diaper bag!
Great quality and love the look! Not too girly and not too manly! :) –
Kari Bonde - 11/27/2013
– 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
– Nice backpack
Bag is manly and practical at the same time. It's as advertised. –
BB - 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 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
– dad backpack
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. –
jason n - 09/12/2013
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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. –

I love the bag and am taking it on my trip to England with my 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 boys! –
Charles R. - 09/19/2011
– 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! –

– awesome diaper backpack
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! –
Josh C. - 07/26/2011
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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
– 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!!! –
Pat V. - 09/28/2009
– 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! –
Heather S. - 08/29/2009
– 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! –
J. Gilmore - 07/02/2009
– 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. –
K. Gorgone - 05/08/2009
– 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.
