The video above contains a fantastic in-depth breakdown of the new Freshly Picked Diaper Bag by my friend Michelle. I’d like to add to that review in written form in case you don’t have nine minutes right now to watch a video, or if you need specific information and don’t want to sift through every detail at the moment.
This bag is a really great size. It is 13 inches wide, 15 inches tall, and has a depth of 7 inches. It has an expandable opening that allows the bag to become noticeably bigger or smaller depending on whether the snaps are done up or not. This bag makes for a great day bag or errand-running bag!

Outside As mentioned before, behind the bag is a pocket to tuck away straps that are not currently in use. This pocket has magnetic closure for easy use and minimization. There are also tiny little tuck-away pouches for the backpack hardware that is not in use. This way there aren’t loose pieces or long dangly straps being obnoxious and in the way. There is a front-zippered mommy pocket that is perfect for quick-reach items like keys or a wallet. Also, on the outside of this bag are two large side pockets. These are designed to fit a 32 oz. water bottle/cup/baby bottle, which is unlike a lot of diaper bags in the way that they have significantly smaller side pockets.

Inside The main compartment has a two-part opening system. First is a fold-over magnetic closure piece, and second is a cute tasseled, zipper opening. I personally like this because I very rarely zip my diaper bag and often wish I could easily cover it up without having to do up my zipper. Anyway, the main compartment is huge. And very tall. It also has two stretchy bottle pockets are on either side. Nothing too special or superior there. And two large stretchy pockets in the front that make organization very simple. It has one zippered pocket for loose items. This pocket is big enough for a phone, or other important items, and makes things incredibly easy to find. And last but not least, it has a large padded tech pocket that easily fits up to a 13-inch laptop. This pouch has a magnetic closure that likely wont close when a large laptop is inside, but will obviously close if something smaller occupies that space.
These are made with vegan leather that is premium quality and simple to wipe clean. A lot of diaper bags (mine included) stain or wear at the bottom over time, but this one is guaranteed to last a bit longer thanks to its four metal feet! These not only keep it clean, but also help in keeping the shape of the bag so it stands easily on its own. The inside of this bag is made of a nylon lining. This lining is stain-resistant and wipes clean just as easily as the outside.

Hi! We have not looked into them too much before, but we’ve heard good things! The FP bag does not have any removable compartments, nor is it insulated anywhere. From what we’ve been able to tell, the PacPods are definitely more functional where this is more style & organization conscious.
Have you all checked out the PacPod backpack bags too? Deciding between this one and that one… I like the way that one has the compartments (one is insulated). Does this come with any removable compartments? Think it needs it? Thanks!
