I’m long past the diaper bag stage, yet the need for a functional, generous sized “kid bag” never ceases. This summer, Paige and I are heading to Disneyland and so I’m on the lookout for a bag that will hold everything we’ll need for our long days as well as something that is stylish, lightweight and offers multiple ways to carry. I’m looking for an all-in-one and I found just that with the Boken Every Day Bag.
My favorite feature of the Every Day Bag is the utilitarian, convertible style. There are three ways to carry this bag, over the shoulder like a tote or like a messenger bag with a detachable strap or a backpack, in which the straps are easily tucked away out of sight. It’s truly three bags in one! There are plenty of outside pockets – the front features two zipper-closure pockets and two outer pockets, one with a flap and the other a mesh pocket perfect for a water bottle.
The Every Day Bag has to be one of the most lightweight diaper bags out there! It’s a whole 13oz in weight – pretty amazing, no? The Every Day Bag arrived folds into a small zip pouch, which I found very clever. It’s great for storing or traveling.
The interior is very generous in space and offers an inner mesh pocket. The Every Day Bag comes with an extra-large diaper pad. I don’t have use for the diaper pad, but that’s okay! I’ve been using this bag consistently carrying item back and forth to work, to Paige’s dance class or on our weekend adventures. It’s going to work perfectly when we are at Disneyland. I’ll be able to keep my camera safely stored, carry a water bottle, the necessities like sunscreen, band-aids and snacks, and of course the little trinkets that we pick up along the way with more than enough room.
Another notable feature is that this bag is made from machine washable, water-resistant material that wipes clean easily. That’s important because I’m not the easiest on my bags, I often dump them on the floor next to me and with kids, there is something is bound to spill!
Boken offers unisex accessories – so Moms and Dads alike are comfortable carrying their brand. I selected an Aqua color (so beautiful!) but comes in a variety of other colors include eggplant, slate, espresso, black, grass and grey.
The Every Day Bag retails for $68 and will remain functional for years.
