I just got a new diaper bag from LLbean...LINKY

ANYWAY- It is sporty- I LOVE it AND it fits a LOT! It's not HUGE, but it's not as small as my little tripper...so I can fit more in it. The LT I can get a couple of bumware AIO's, the wipes case, my wallet and cell phone, hand santizer, and a cup...

In this I have:
2 FB
2 Bumware AIO's
on the inside pocket and there is room for an outfit.

Outside pocket- front wallet
cell phone on the side
back pocket changing pad and wipes

Cup in mesh holder- as well as sanitizer
There is more ROOM! I LOVE it and I am SO excited to get to take it somewhere. I need a smaller wallet...

If you are in the market for a new diaper bag, I highly recommend this one! It's a great size!

Jessi- you won't regret it! And usually I don't like the changing pads that come w/ the bags, but this one isn't gigantic, it's a good size and doesn't weigh the bag down at all. You can wear it messenger style or tote style...and LL Bean has an awesome return policy if you DON'T like it. The blue is really pretty too I am just in !

Oooo...I have some gift certificates heading my way from the suitcase I returned.

It's not too plastic-y is it? Lately all the diaper bags I see in stores are way too plastic/vinyl for me.

I've been eyeballing it ever since I saw Holli's comparison - How do you think it'd work for two in cloth?

When we travel far enough to need a diaper bag .. i usually just grab 2 or 3 fb's for dd, and maybe a clean tshirt. I have NO idea how our sprog will be with dipes though - at least not til she's born. :LOL but our stash is mostly prefolds, pockets, and wool for her so far. And I know she'd need an extra outfit or two ..

thanks for the review. I liked this bag in the catalog but i don't like ordering stuff i can't see in person. Maybe I'll go for it. Its definitely one of the better looking diaper bags out there!

I'd love so see some pics of mamas wearing it! I want to get a bag that has a long shoulder strap so I could wear it like a purse or messenger style.

Please mamas, post a pic of it on you!!!

I'd like to know how it would work for two in cloth too. Can any one compare it with the kecci shanghai bag? I've been eyeing that one too. I have a little ON messenger bag and need something a bit bigger for 2 cloth diapered tushes.

Go co-op though. You know about the Skip-hop co-ops, I'm assuming? Makes them quite affordable. My IRL friend is in the know with them. If you want, I'll ask her to keep you up to date if they do another Skip-hop Co-op. But... you probably already konw about them!

Ok, Holli, if you EVER think of selling the Skip Hop, please let me know.
I was just telling my IRL friend about this... one of her co-op friends is selling their black one... I just snagged it for $30 Not bad for someone who was perfectly happy with her regular diaper bag!!!!

Yes, it's a different (slightly darker) shade of blue. I love it.
