Baby Gear and stylish don’t often go together. We assume as parents that if we buy something functional it is probably available in only weird colors or is a total eyesore. This is typically true of the diaper bag—I find the most efficient diaper bags are not exactly bags I would want to carry—they live hooked onto the stroller. This is especially true of dad bags…well until now.
E.C. Knox has designed a very chic dad bag that lives up to its catchphrase, “Helping dads feel proud in their roles and stylish in the process”. The Ellison Diaper Bag can go from messenger style to a backpack with a few quick adjustments. The sleek navy or black on black with leather detail is simple and stylish—it can be sporty and still look totally appropriate with a suit.
As a diaper bag, it has a removable, washable and liquid resistant liner (because we know “leak-proof” sippy-cups and bottles ALL leak), zip-out changing flap with removable changing pad, a quick-access side picket for wipes and four pockets for all the baby goodies like creams, clothes and diapers. As a dad-bag it has additional pockets, padded computer sleeve, key carabiner and a flashlight—my favorite detail (for digging in the dark for that one special pacifier that our screaming babe needs).
We have been through our share of man bags and backpacks as diaper bags but the Ellison Diaper Bag really looks and functions like an everyday bag but with little secret compartments, hidden features and multiple uses. It does it all! This bag is a great gift for a new or seasoned dad because it is so versatile. It is made of ballistic nylon, converts to a backpack, has a magical exterior pocket that can hold a baby bottle, a sippy cup or a bottle of wine…Honestly, they had my husband at “ballistic nylon” and he uses this as an everyday bag even though our kids are out of diapers, bottles and sippy cups!
