My son is now 2 and we've had this bag from Day 1. I share the same sentiments as some of the other reviewers, I wish it was a little bit wider.

But that is the only Con that I have for the bag. It is made of great material, very durable and has great pockets for all the little things that need a place. The stoller straps are easy to manage, I wouldn't get any bag that doesn't have a system like this. The bag is comfortable and stylish for both my husband and myself.

But the MAIN reason I'm writing this almost 2 years later...recently the bag was stinky -- long story short, there was a loose sock that had soaked up some milk and had lodged into a small corner of the bag and started to mold. I was totally disgusted and almost tossed the bag. But as a last resort, I pulled the lining inside out and threw the whole bag in to the wash, and voila -- brand new bag. It's didn't wear or dry funny after two washings in hot water. We just let it dry out for a few hours with towels stuffed in the small pockets and it was good as new. I don't know if washing is recommended, but it worked for me and I'm so happy I don't have to buy a new one!

It's a good bag. The stroller attachments are great and it looks sleek. However, it is a bit small if you use all the internal pockets and hard to close (it looses it's shape if you fill it too much), also, it is a bit heavy. All in all, I think it's a good bag, but a bit expensive.

    Comments about Skip Hop 1008319 Skip Hop Via Messenger Bag:

    I received this bag as a gift and have been mostly happy. I use this as the primary diaper bag and one of my favorite features are the clips to attach it to the stroller. The only con would be that it seems to be too small. I like to be prepared and after I have diapers, wipes, extra outfit, burp rag, nursing cover and other odds and ends packed, my diaper bag seems so bulky and over stuffed.There are a ton of pockets including an anti microbial pocket for soiled clothes. My husband says he needs a map to find out where I have everything packed... :-)

    Comments about Skip Hop 1008319 Skip Hop Via Messenger Bag:

    After reading all of the reviews I went ahead and ordered the bag and thought it was going to be perfect. Well after using it for my first child for the past six months I have discovered that it's just too small. Not to mention that there are too many pockets, it's not wide enough, and its too deep. I find myself having to take everything out of the bag to get to the bottom of it. I really don't feel like I pack too many things either. I usually have the basic diaper necessities, a few rattle type of toys, a nursing cover, an extra pair of clothes, and my wallet. I breastfeed so I don't even pack bottles or food yet. When I do want to pack a water bottle or a snack for myself, it never fits properly. I don't usually wright reviews but I am so disappointed, especially for the price I paid, that I couldn't help myself. On the positive side, it's made well and looks nice.

      Comments about Skip Hop 1008319 Skip Hop Via Messenger Bag:

      I love this diaper bag as I found it pretty, sleek and very versatile.
      I can fit on it diapers, bottles, wipes, food, formula, clothes and toys!
      Perfect for travel as it is not that bulky even when full. The magnet close for the lap it's very convenient when you have your hands full!
      I bought it a little bit over a year ago, and I used it every single day. After a year, the stap broke and an internal pocket ripped. I contacted Skip*Hop customer service and they shipped one new bag to me as the garantee will cover any defects. 100% satisfied customer!

          Great Bag, Inside Not Durable

          • Stroller Bag

          Comments about Skip Hop 1008319 Skip Hop Via Messenger Bag:

          I loved all of the pockets, great way to organize. I could easily fit 3 to 4 diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, snack cups, drink cups (2) and 1 bottle. The clips that fasten to a stroller are easy on, easy off, one of the main features that prompted me to buy the bag. The outside pockets are perfect for my phone and keys and the side pockets hold a full water bottle for myself.

          However, I bought this bag in May and it has been 3 months and the interior elastic pockets are ripped. Now, I have used Eddie Bauer and Coach bags and never have I had one rip on me. I would slide a plastic pampers wipes container into one of the pockets, one of the ones that is worst ripped. This has not caused me to not purchase one again, but I am definetly upset at how weak the fabric pockets are inside.

          And definetly the magnet isn't strong enough to keep it closed.

            I bought this because I had heard good things about the Skip Hop brand. The bag is well made and seems like it will hold up well to a lot of wear and tear. The only thing I am not sure about is whether it will be big enough for all our gear. It does have a lot of pockets so hopefully that will help keep everything organized. I also like that it is very uni-sex and my husband will not object to carrying it.
