PRODUCT: Caboodle Active Changing Bag (www.caboodlebags.co.uk)Caboodle Active Bag

DESCRIPTION: A unisex cross-body baby changing bag with insulated bottle pocket, multiple storage compartments including parent pocket, mobile phone pocket and 'grubby stuff' pocket, and a changing mat included. Available in black, red and sand colours. Dimensions are 15 x 6 x 19".

GOOD POINTS: The Caboodle Active bag is a practical and stylish baby changing bag that certainly won't break the bank! At first glance it looks nothing like a changing bag thanks to its neat, compact appearance. In addition, its neutral range of colours, together with a cross-body rucksack-style design make it hugely appealing to dads as well as mums.

The changing bag is a good size, and is made from a durable polyester material that can simply be wiped clean. The bag has a nice finish with lovely attention to detail including silver stitching, large rubber 'Caboodle' zip tags and a 'Caboodle' badge on the front. A wide integrated padded strap on the back of the bag provides maximum comfort for wearing across the body, and the strap can be fully adjusted to suit your size and shape via substantial Velcro fastenings. The rucksack-style design means that the bag does not fall forwards if you need to lean over, although it can just as easily be worn as a shoulder bag if desired. The bag comes with a large matching wipe-clean changing mat, which is padded for maximum comfort and folds up neatly when not in use.

Caboodle Active BagThe bag has a generous number of storage compartments to hold all the essentials for a day out with baby. The main interior section is fairly spacious and can be accessed via a double-ended diagonal zip for quick and easy access to belongings. What's more, this can be done without even having to take the bag off!

There is a large webbed pocket on the rear of the bag which is ideal for holding the changing bag and a few nappies etc (this pocket is best used for flat items as it sits against your back). In addition, a handy double-zipped compartment at the base of the bag can be used to store any dirty or soiled items to keep them separated from the rest of the bag contents, and a smaller zipped opening on the side of the bag reveals a thermal insulated pocket for housing a baby bottle (large or small). The bag also comes with a clear plastic zipped wallet which can also be used to further store mucky items or rubbish.

So that's baby's stuff sorted...but there's more! The Caboodle changing bag also has a couple of pockets designed to hold parent's gear too; for example, a mobile phone pocket situated on the chest strap (secured in place via a zip fastening), and a dedicated 'parent' pocket on the front of the bag, complete with purse, key clip and a couple of pen holders.

The Caboodle Active Bag is, in our opinion, a reasonably-priced, practical and well laid-out unisex bag...not bulky or over-complicated, and ideal for leaving you hands-free to multi-task!

BAD POINTS: None really, other than it only has one bottle pocket!
