Mamas choose their diaper bag for all sorts of reasons, but mainly it's picking the bag that best fits your lifestyle. Well now there's a new bag to throw into the mix that is the perfect bag for families that travel-- The Nuna Diaper Bag! The first bag that Nuna has introduced is designed to be durable, comfortable, and convenient for parents and kids on the go!
The Nuna bag can be carried backpack style, using the messenger strap, or with the carrying handle. A feature that we've yet to see from high end diaper bag is the hidden zipper pocket that lets you slide the entire bag on the handle of a carryon suitcase-- No more worrying about your bag sliding off your suitcase while you're running around the airport! And thanks to the wide, woven straps you will be able to carry this bag without the annoying feeling of straps digging into your shoulders. The straps and carrying options are similar to the Petunia Pickle Bottom Pathway, but the Nuna Diaper Bag will look a little more sleek with its thinner outer pockets.
With sleek black, easy to wipe down fabric and leatherette finishes, this bag will look good whether you're taking it to the park or into the office. Nuna also made sure to include things that every on-the-go parent needs like the changing pad pouch and a separate bottle bag. The changing pad folds out to a nice size to give you maximum coverage for your little one, and the bottle bag is a great way to keep drinks cold/hot while you're away from home, and by clipping it to the outside of the bag you can access it really easily!
Overall the Nuna Diaper Bag has an average amount of storage, but depending on what you bring with you while traveling (or for everyday) you will need to be fairly organized to fit everything in. Unlike the Freshly Picked Diaper Bag, one of the more popular backpack style bags, which has a deep, open area and fewer, large side pockets for storage, the Nuna bag has more smaller pockets that fit less, and a more shallow open area overall.
The outside of the bag has a large pocket that sits along the back of the bag (will rest against your back if worn like a backpack) that can fit flatter objects, or a good place to store the extra straps when not being used. When you lift the magnetic front flap there are two pockets-- one thin zipper pouch perfect for a phone or your keys, and a larger open pouch that will fit a tablet or some books!
The inside of the bag has a lot of pockets, but they're all slightly smaller than we're used to seeing, so keep that in mind. There are 5 mesh pouches that can hold snacks, toys, or sunscreens. You've also got 2 bungy straps that can keep bottles upright, or like our Cubby Mom Michelle shows in this video, keeps your swaddle blanket rolled up and out of the way. There is also a waterproof zipper pocket that is perfect for keeping a passport or documents you don't want getting ruined while traveling.
This is a great diaper bag for any parent, but is especially great for parents who are looking to condense the everyday essentials for organized traveling! Considering this is a high end brand with luxe finishes, the included changing pad and bottle bag, and the durable fabrics the price ($179.95) is reasonable and worth it for the ease of traveling.
