PRODUCT: OiOi Messenger Bag ( Messenger Bag - Charcoal Dot with Lime

DESCRIPTION: A large nylon changing bag with designs for both Mums and Dads, with insulated bottle pouches, multiple storage pockets, and separate bottle holder, plastic wipes case, wet bag and matching changing pad included.

GOOD POINTS: This is a really modern range of bags with a nice quality feel and a good choice of colours and patterns to choose from. Several of the range are intended to appeal to Dads as well as Mums (see featured pictures) and are more subtle in design while still maintaining a stylish look. They are designed to be used beyond just a changing bag and will hold many of your everyday items for work or social activities.

The exterior of the Messenger bag contains a deep open pocket on the back for easy access to essentials, and an insulated pocket on either end, with a Velcro-fastening flap to contain the contents. These side pockets are ideal for housing baby bottles of any size, or alternatively jars of food and other snacks.

The interior of the bag is accessed via a satchel-style flap on the front which is secured with a strong magnetic snap-shut fastening. Each bag has a lovely fresh coloured polyester lining to match the design, which can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. The main compartment is spacious with three easy-access elasticated side pockets, one large and two OiOi Messenger Bag - Chocolate Tweedsmall, which are plenty big enough to organize and store all your belonging. There is also a handy clip just inside the opening to hold keys, dummies or similar items.

The Messenger bag also comes with a generous number of accessories which all fit neatly and easily into the various pockets and compartments. This includes a large microfibre changing mat in matching colour, which is padded for your baby’s comfort during nappy changes and folds up compactly with a Velcro fastening for easy storage. In addition, there is a plastic OiOi wipes case to allow easy access to baby wipes during changing and feeding time. The bag also comes with a separate matching-colour insulated bottle sleeve with draw-string top, as well as a removable transparent PVC bag with zip fastening, which is ideal for storing messes or soils away from bag contents.

The main strap of the bag is thick and sturdy, and is comfortable to wear over your shoulder. Alternatively, the bag conceals two stroller straps which pull out from either side of the main compartment and enable it to be hung around the handles of a pushchair/stroller. It is best to detach the bag before removing your child to avoid the pushchair tipping backwards with the weight.

The bag has been well thought-out and has some lovely detail, including coloured trim around the exterior pockets to match the lining, along with metal studs on the underside of the bag to prevent scuffing. In our opinion this is a great unisex bag which is spacious, practical and stylish.

BAD POINTS: Depending on the design of Messenger bag you choose, the shoulder strap may not be adjustable. In addition the separate bottle holder will not last against severe milk leakage. The bag is slightly more expensive than other changing bags on the market, but you do get good quality for your money.

PRICE: Approx. £70
