When shopping for a diaper bag, the last thing moms want is the equivalent of the “mom jeans” of handbags. The perfect diaper bag has to be practical—meaning it can withstand everyday use, spills and keep a lot of stuff organized—but still look cool enough to double as your “It” bag. Style and substance, it turns out, don’t always go hand-in-hand. But we’ve found one that consistently has us bowing down to its ingenuity. Bonus: it looks great too.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • An expansion zipper that lets the bag open up and hold more when you need it
  • Smart “pod” system that keeps feeding and changing supplies separate—and hygienic!—in their own compact containers
  • Durable, water-repellent and wipe-clean microfiber material that’s phthalate-free
  • Includes a changing pad and three separate “parent” compartments (for keys, smartphone and even a laptop)

SUMMARY

Compact yet roomy. Stylish but sturdy. Pacapod thoughtfully created a bag that you can carry long after your little one stops making you travel like a roadie for Mariah Carey and her entourage.

Price: $260
