I'm after a bag to fill with baby crap that I can use for DS stuff when I carry him in the ergo. I would like a feminine one that looks nice rather than a sports one. I'm happy to spend around £50, any suggestions? Not Cath Kidson please...I don't like it when everyone has the same stuff!

Depends what you like, but I saw a bronze metallic one in Accessorize the other day, quite roomy, and £35. I'd have bought it, but it doesn't go with the rest of my wardrobe. They had a few nice ones, worth checking.

My daughter's both use a Kanken which are really hard wearing and comfy and come in lots of different colours.

another vote for Kanken - utilitarian style but broad range of colours - some are even pretty smile

Are there different sizes of Kanken? Is the 16L for an adult or can an adult wear any size?

I had a great Kipling one

Thanks for the bonus code Lovely. Just ordered one for my daughters birthday. smile

Hmm I'm not sure on the Kanken, it looks a bit...boxey? Not sure if that's the right word. It definitely looks to be the sort of quality I'm looking for though. Maybe I'll need to try and see one in the flesh. Any other suggestions? Thanks for the help so far!

Herschel are great- blue or classic

Paperchase has some interesting designs, but I don't know how hardwearing they are.

sonlypuppyfat Tue 05-Apr-16 19:48:18

I've a few kipling ones, and I know they are a bit like marmite you either love or hate them. But they are very hard-wearing and nice and light and very strong

Jack Wolfskin rucksacks are very comfortable.

I like mi pac ones. Lots of different prints/fabrics.

I love love my Kanken. It is boxy and practical over pretty perhaps but currently using it as a baby change bag and finding it great. I had great issues choosing which colour...

What's the best size of Kanken to get as a changing bag? Don't want to be loaded down, especially with sling on front, but would want to get a mini if they're really, really small...

BikeRunSki Sun 10-Apr-16 21:17:04

I had a lovely looking mi pac one, but it fell apart after only about 2 months daily use. I wouldn't recommend them for that reason.

Vera bradleys all the way. Last for ages. Fully washable.

I have a Leopard print (subtle green thing) Vans rucksack.

It's great - was about £30 from ASOS

Eastpac bags last for ages and come in a range of colours. They are very robust. The only thing that bothered me was the absence of an inside pocket. So if you're not taking another bag (handbag) out too, you either keep your purse and phone in the main compartment with all the nappies etc, or you keep it in the outside pocket where pickpockets can have a field day...
