Best Changing Bag for Being Organised 2018

PacaPod Portland Review

PacaPod bags force you to be organised and ensure that even if you're usually chaotic, you have everything in the right place

The Portland has a simple yet stylish design and is made of microfibre with a leather trim. The clever expansion zip even helps to increase the capacity of the bag.

The standout feature is PacaPod’s unique and brilliant 3-in-1 'pod system', which allows you to be ultra organised with your baby's (many) things. The pod system includes a removable mini changing bag for taking to the changing room, and a removable mini cool bag for food, which can double up as a kids’ backpack. Both pods can be attached to the buggy separately, making the Portland very flexible. Presumably, these removable extras are the reason for the Portland’s higher price, which is justified if organisation and flexibility are high priorities for you.

The Portland bag will divide opinion. For some, its many organisational compartments will be a godsend; for others, it will feel restrictive and might become a faff when you’re in a hurry and need to get out of the house quickly.

My PacaPod was great. It held loads and DP was happy to use it. I loved being able to just take the little pod to the toilets for nappy changes & the one for food was great when he started weaning as it helps keep it cool.
