PRODUCT: Storksak Alex Messenger Sak ( Alex Messenger Sac

DESCRIPTION: A large unisex changing bag in heavy canvas, with dual side insulated bottle pockets, multiple storage compartments, and a changing mat included. Available in blue, black, or khaki.

GOOD POINTS: This is a really trendy bag that has a great quality feel and a casual design in simple colours which would appeal to either Mum or Dad. The bag is made from a very durable canvas which is also waterproof. It goes beyond just a changing bag and is a nice deep size to hold many of your everyday items for work or social activities, including a laptop.

The bag has a satchel-style flap which secures shut via a strong magnetic catch. There are two large external pockets, one on the rear of the bag, and the other located under the front flap, which also includes a small compartment perfect for storing a mobile phone. Both of these pockets have magnetic fastenings to keep the contents of the pockets secure.

On opening the flap, the main compartment of the bag is very spacious and is accessed through a two-way zip on the top. The neutral lining is easy to wipe clean, and there are a good number of pockets to hold and organise all your essential changing and feeding items. These includes four easy-access open pockets, two large and two small, one zippered pocket, and one mesh pocket which allows you to easily see items. There is also a very useful key ring just inside the opening of the bag, which can be handily detached and reattached via a quick-release clip.

Another great feature of the bag are the insulated pockets for housing baby bottles. One is integrated into the side of the bag and can be accessed via a zip on the exterior. The other bottle pocket on the opposite end also has zippered external access but can be accessed from the inside too. It is a wrap-round pocket which is attached to the bag via poppers and can be cleverly removed for cleaning or for making extra storage space. Both insulated pockets are ideally situated for quick and easy access to bottles during feeding time, and can effectively keep liquids hot or cold for up to four hours.

The bag comes with a strong webbed fabric strap which is fully adjustable, and is very comfortable to wear over your shoulder or alternatively over the handles of a pushchair or stroller. The bag has some nice detailing and includes leather and metal zip tags to allow you easy access to compartments. In addition, the bag comes with a washable changing mat which is padded for baby’s comfort during changing time, and has a Velcro fastening to keep it compact when not in use.

In all, this is a very stylish and functional carrier which will easily outlive its purpose as a changing bag.

BAD POINTS: The canvas exterior seems to easily pick up fluff and other particles. The bag is slightly more expensive than other changing bags on the market, but you get good quality for your money.

PRICE: £75
