Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  I was on another website and saw images and descriptions of your products that are different that the ones shown on your website, how do I know which one is correct?
A:  All of the information on our website is correct and we adjust it whenever something changes so our customers receive exactly what they ordered.  As much as we try to communicate changes to our partners, sometimes they just don't get it correct. We provide the most accurate images, descriptions and features of our products of any location on the web.  Even if you see multiple sites with the same data, ours is the correct version.  If you are still confused, feel free to give us a call and we'll clear it up.

Q:  I see on the web that DadGear & DaisyGear bags are shown with a wipes case and I can see pictures of it too -  do you still have those?   I can't seem to find one anywhere.
A:  Yes, we have them for sale on our accessories page.  Our bags are designed so most major brands of soft pack wipes with a flip top door integrate perfectly with our quick access wipes window, so we don't include it for those who would prefer to put their favorite brand directly in the bag.  However, for those who don't like that big bulky baby wipes package in their bag, our patented Quick Access Wipes Case is a perfect solution.

Q:  I see that there are some bags online with collegiate logos, and I'd like a team that I can't find. Can I get one of those custom made?
A:  Unfortunately not.  We don't have collegiate licensed products anymore.  The first place to look is Amazon.  If there are any available there, those were our last models that we sold to one of our vendors.  If you don't see what you want on Amazon, our suggestion is to purchase an all-black bag (messenger, backpack, sport or courier) and find a logo that you can have sewn on once you receive the bag.

Q:  Are your bottle pockets insulated in any of your bags?
A:  We get this question a lot.  The short answer is no, but there is a reason.  We have tested those "insulated" pockets and bags and find that although they technically work, they don't work well.  We decided to find the best and coolest insulated bottle out there and offer that to our customers.  We partnered with a company called Miir® and offer their insulated bottles on our site.  These bottles keep cold things cold for 24 hours and hot things hot for 8 hours.  Oh, and we tested them to make sure.  In fact they work so well that we were completely amazed.  The best part is that since they are double walled, no perspiration on the bottle either so the bag won't get wet.  We HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.  We recommend you get 2, one for your kids and one for you! They are available in two sizes: 700ml and 500ml.

Q:  I spilled something inside my bag, can I wash it? 
A:  Although we don’t recommend washing the bag, many of our customers have had luck by removing everything from the bag and washing on a gentle cycle with mild detergent on cold and then air drying (do not tumble dry) when complete.  The problem is no matter how gentle, washing still shrinks fabrics a little and the binding tape and fabrics shrink at different rates which causes puckering.  However a little puckering may be better than a smelly bag.

Q:  I lost one of the buckles on the base of my diaper bag (Messenger, Classic, or Courier).  Can I buy replacements?
A:  No need to buy one, just send us your address and we'll send you some new ones.  No cost to you.  Yes, there are still some freebies in this world and we're happy to offer them.  Consider it our thanks for using our products!

Q:  Do your bags contain PVC or phthalates or any other harmful products?
A:  All of our products are CPSIA compliant, that is to say that they contain less than the maximums allowed by the CPSIA Act.  As much as we strive to ensure our products don't contain even a trace amount of these and other potentially harmful compounds, we can never be 100% sure as we don't make the fabrics or the coatings on the fabric ourselves.  If you are extremely concerned about even the slightest amount of one of these, we recommend you look for a natural fiber bag made without any coatings whatsoever.  The majority of fabrics used for bag production have a coating on one side for durability and stiffness, and these can contain slight traces of many elements depending on factories and production processes.  Think of it like a nut allergy.  A baking pan that had a small amount of almond oil in the dough for one loaf of bread could technically transfer over a trace amount of almond oil to the next 10-20 loaves.  The same is possible with any coating from batch to batch in the equipment used in the large factories where our materials are manufactured.

Q:  I have some ideas that I think would make your products better, can I send them to you?
A:  We always welcome suggestions and constantly strive to make our products better.  We've been improving our bags and accessories for the last 10 years and that is part of what makes us a lasting brand.  Send your ideas using the contact page.  Thanks for the suggestions!

Q:  Have you ever thought of adding a Diaper Vest® for new moms?
A:  Yes we have, but the likelihood of us getting it right is slim.  There are many different dimensions in sizing for ladies.  Think of all of the stores just for women's clothing.  The challenge is designing a vest that is flattering and would fit a variety shapes and sizes and is a task we just don't think we can accomplish with great results.  Sorry moms!

Q:  Do you ship to Canada?
A:  Yes, select USA Checkout (...yes we know, but USA/Canada Checkout does not fit on that button) and we'll ship your order via US Postal Service.  They will transfer it to Royal Canadian Mail and you'll have the package in 7-20 days.

Q:  Do you ship internationally?
A:  Yes, we have partnered with a company that handles all of our international shipments and they do it quite well.  Select "International Checkout" and follow the prompts.  You can prepay any taxes and tariffs as well.

Q:  It seems like my international location is a bit more expensive than I thought, is there a cheaper way to get my international shipment?
A:  Unfortunately not.  We don't have the tools to verify international credit cards the way they do so we trust this service to them.  Since partnering with them, we have hundreds of happy international customers.

CLOSE

  –  Very pleased with the quality.

The title pretty much says it all. I was very pleased with the overall quality and practicality of the bag. My wife is due in a week so soon I'll be putting it to the real test.  –   Eric Miller - 08/10/2014


  –  Ultimate, essential Dad gear.

Dads need all the hands they can get. This vest keeps all essentials for baby within reach with out being cumbersome. It lets Dad have hands free for the important things such as hugging and carrying little one. And because it all resides in a wearable vest, much less chance of leaving or forgetting at the playground, on the subway, in the car... Perfect accessory for the cool, fun, on the move Daddy.  –   Tamara Dokurno - 08/09/2014


  –  Diaper Duty Dad

As a father of 3, I can really appreciate the style and craftsmanship that went into my diaper bag. I'm constantly complimented on it wherever I go. Not only does it look awesome, but its extremely practical and functional. I literally have zero complaints about this bag, and the fact that its made in the U.S.A., made it a no-brainer for me to purchase.  –   Junior - 08/04/2014


  –  Sport Bag - Fantastic Craftsmanship

I like quality outdoor gear, so I convinced my wife that we were ordering this diaper bag instead of a giant, inefficient, overly feminine bag from Babies "R" Us. The bag is very well designed and well built. I am quite impressed. It is great that this is made in USA too!   –   Daniel Carlson - 08/03/2014


  –  awesome

very fast delivery and item is very well made  –   kathy - 07/30/2014


  –  Perfect bag for Dads on the Go!

I bought this for my husband for Father's Day before our baby arrived, and he was thrilled. He'd been talking about this backpack since early in my pregnancy, but also talked about buying another Timbuk2 messenger bag (which he currently uses for work/personal stuff). Knowing that my husband LOVES a good backpack, he was excited and has been raving about how functional it is. His favorite features are the "quick-draw" wipes pouch and the insulated drink holders. His only recommendation for change would be to add more pockets on the large interior of the backpack, but that's really more of a minor concern. Although we haven't been using the backpack for long, the bag is extremely durable, flexible and comfortable to wear (for both men and women). Though the price point isn't the cheapest, you get what you pay for and this bag is worth every cent!  –   Kari - 07/30/2014


  –  Best bag ever!

I purchased this bag as my "last" diaper bag. I have a four year old and year old twins. We are out of diapers, but we use this as our go everywhere bag. The wipes access alone is reason enough to purchase this bag. It holds everything we need for our three kids without being too bulky. The only thing I wish it had was a fully lined insulated compartment. Other than that, I can not say enough good things about this bag.   –   Andrea - 07/28/2014


  –  dad gear diaper bag

whenever I need a gift for a baby shower, I always choose this bag. it comes in many diff colors and designs and because it is a back pack, it's pretty unisex and the dad's love to use it too. everytime I've given this, the response is incredible...people love it! and I usually will stuff if with other baby items; it's a super gift!  –   amy - 07/26/2014


  –  Genius

Absolute genius. I got this bag about two months ago after my baby girl arrived. After navigating the bland and absurd world that is today's baby market... I found dadgear.com and found this messenger bag. It was really great in design and function. We got the bag so fast. The bag itself is amazing. My wife loves it. it holds everything we need for not only our 2 month old but for our four year old as well. If you are thinking about getting this bag. I encourage you to do it! This is easily the best purchase I have made in a very long time  –   Rob - 07/25/2014


  –  messenger bag

Im a nurse and work weekends and strange hours, leaving my husband to take care of our daughter by himself when he's home. My husband loves this bag! And I must admit that I'm thinking about sharing it with him as I haven't found a woman's diaper bag that makes as much functional sense as the dad gear messenger bag.  –   megan - 07/18/2014


  –  Backpack diaper bag

I can't express how much I love my DadGear diaper bag. I had two previous diaper bags before this one - the first one was a back pack model but broke after about six months. The second I got was a messanger style bag, but lacked space and was awkward to carry when toting a baby around. The DadGear diaper bag has solved all the problems with my previous two bags. It has more space than I could have ever imagined (and I've been known to cram our bags full of EVERYTHING!) and is comfortable to carry around while toting small kids. I love this product and only wish I had known about it when my first baby was born!   –   Shannon - 07/16/2014


  –  Finally a diaper backpack

Love the new backpack. The waterproof pockets make it easy to clean and the pockets are well designed and useful. The only issue that i have had is hanging it on the stroller. The double hooks are strong and work well it is just time consuming when you got two kids waiting. A nice carabiniere hook or something quick would be great but maybe not cost effective. So nice to finally have a backpack instead of those messenger bags though. Thanks  –   Duane - 07/08/2014


  –  Sherpa time!

Been using the backpack for only 2 weeks and I couldn't be happier! Tons of storage space, and a number of super handy pockets and features to boot. Looks great as well! Only change would be on the zippers. They are a little loud banging together when you move. Super sturdy though. Thanks DadGear - looking forward to many more years with my backpack!  –   Brad B - 07/07/2014


  –  The Hubs loves the backpack!

I gave my husband the backpack diaper bag. All the compartments are terrific! Very cool to have it open to be it's own changing station.  –   liz - 07/03/2014


  –  Awesome

This is the best diaper bag on the market the wipes are so easy to access and refill great for moms and dads strong and sturdy. The customer service is exceptional.  –   Sarah - 06/30/2014


  –  Awesome bag

Great product it has everything you really need for a diaper bag. It's very functional and has perfect pockets for organization, and I love that the bag unzips and folds flat his a great feature so you can have easy access to every thing. Overall two thumbs up!!  –   Andrew - 06/25/2014


  –  Great Father's Day Gift!

Bought the backpack for my husband for Father's Day. He takes it everywhere. Perfect for our two girls under two  –   Marina Parsons - 06/21/2014


  –  Awesome diaper back pack

I can't say enough how efficient my new "dad bag" (as I like to call it) has been for me and my family. It's very conveniant and has plenty of storage for everything. My wife would even agree that this bag world better than her bulky diaper bag. Delivery was also fast and I was also treated to a follow up email making sure everything iwent well.   –   Jeremy S - 06/20/2014


  –  More then a 'Diaper bag'

I got this for my Husbands' birthday and he loves it! He uses it every single day! He keeps pull-ups AND diapers as well as arm&hammer diaper bags in the top and his wallet, keys and tums etc. in the front pocket and he was just saying how he loves the insulated side drink pockets because when he grabs a cold drink from home on his way out the door it's still cold when he remembers it's there 4 hours later, or all the room for all his papers, office mail, Tablet and MacBook (not too mention how often he throws his backpack on the floor or his car and nothing ever breaks because of the inner awesome marshmallow like padding) and all the baby essentials in the other pockets, there's always still somehow more room left! When he does do daddy grocery day for busy mommy, he loves the stroller attachments; he uses them on the grocery cart, too give his back a rest! I origannly got this for him because he dreaded carrying our very girly diaper bag around and I was tired of the excuse "you grab the bag and I'll get everything else" and instead it ended up turning into his new favorite accessory to his everyday wardrobe and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!!  –   Heather - 06/19/2014


  –  Excellent product, even better customer service

As a first time father I purchased a backpack diaper bag. UPS lost my package and after a 5 min conversation with DadGear customer service I had a new backpack on the way, with an apology even though they shared no blame. They couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, and I had my new backpack in a couple of days. The backpack is made of very high quality material and the wipes pouch is a lifesaver! There is more than enough room for a long journey away from home and the different compartments for bottles, changing pad, diapers etc make life much easier. I am very happy with my purchase and will recommend to all of my friends.   –   Tyler - 06/05/2014


  –  Dad can't wait to try it.

I got this as a dad's gift to his son for a first grandchild. The first choice, a diaper bag, seemed too normal. I wanted something that was "gear." The baby is still a newborn but the vest was a hit. The only suggestion I have for DadGear is that you could ship these with the pockets full of the items they are meant to hold, or, better yet, an image printed on card stock of what each pocket is designed to hold. That would add a little fun to the gift opening by the new dad.   –   Jack Wittman - 05/27/2014


  –  Great Dad Diaper Bag!!!

I bought the original messenger diaper bag as a gift for my husband who is also a first time dad. He loved the comfort and style of the messenger bag without looking like a women's diaper bag. I recommend this for any dad.   –   Jessica - 05/21/2014


  –  Awesome

I love the bag it doesn't resemble anything like a diaper bag until you open it. It's great! And it's manly  –   Brandon - 05/21/2014


  –  Great for multiple children

We researched several diaper bags while expecting our second child. We wanted something larger that would keep the childrens' necessities more organized. I looked into DadGear while searching for something American made. We have been very happy with the purchase. The several compartments do make it easy to separate and keep clothes, bottles, diapers, etc... organized. I also like the convenience of the wipes pocket - very easily accessible!  –   Catherine - 05/20/2014


  –  Great products, USA made!

I have purchased several DadGear bags over the past couple of years for friends and family with kids. I purchased my first one almost three years ago and loved it so much, I had to get them for others. They sell great products that are designed with a lot if thought, they look great, and best of all they are made in the USA. The customer service from the company is also top notch! They are prompt with responses to questions, and seem to genuinely care for their customers. I can't say enough good things about DadGear!   –   Nick - 05/16/2014


  –  Great for the on the go mom

Love my charcoal whimsy backpack diaper bag. These bags just make sense! Most backpack diaper bags are to small or to girly in my opinion. This has just enough touch to be feminine and super practical. I bought and returned several backpack diaper bags before I came across DadGear!   –   Austyn - 05/14/2014


  –  Wonderful!

This baby bag is the best bag for someone who is always on the go! Been traveling and it works great with a baby carrier. Many pockets and lots of space! Wonderful wonderful bag! Worth every penny!  –   Gerri - 05/13/2014


  –  Zippers make lots of noise

We have the backpack diaper bag. It has great pockets with very useful storage for specific items like diapers and bottles. I really like the pocket on top for keeping diapers organized. The one thing that I really do not like is that the zippers/zipper pulls make so much noise. It's very annoying that the bag jingles so lout every time you pick it up or even move the bag. I had to tie prices of cord onto each zipper just so that it would dampen the noise.   –   Lauren - 05/08/2014


  –  A Hugh Hit!!

We decided to have a "Celebration" instead of "Shower" for my daughter. I bought the Diaper Vest for my son-in-law. I filled it with everything he would need ie. bottles, diapers, wipes, powder, band-aids, lysol disinfectant spray etc. I even put a little pair of sneakers and a little outfit that said "Coaches Kid" in there. I didn't wrap the Vest, I just put it on him, he was pulling stuff out from everywhere. THE VEST WAS A HUGH HIT!! everyone was asking where I got it. This Vest is definitely something Daddy will use and I know he will get my monies worth out of it.  –   Billie - 05/08/2014


  –  Genius product

This is a genius product. There's nothing else like it on the market. My husband loves showing it off to his friends! Our favorite feature is the wipee compartment.   –   Christina San Jorge - 05/07/2014


  –  Awesome diaper bag

My wife bought this for me being a first time dad. Its been a life safer, very well laid out and easy to get to everything I need in a hurry. Great product!  –   Neil - 05/02/2014


  –  BACKPACK DIAPER BAG

EXCELLENT PRODUCT NICELY DESIGNED ALSO EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE TO CARRY  –   Jose Tavera - 05/01/2014


  –  Still Fantastic 6 Years later

I just wanted to share with you how much I love your backpacks. We went through several diaper bags with my first son. We couldn't seem to find one that fit all of our needs, until I came upon your product on a web search. I took a chance and ordered a bag. That was six years ago and I am still in love with the bag. After six years and two boys the bag is still being used for when we hike, bike, boat or have overnight trips. Thank you for making such a fantastic product.?  –   Kellyan T. - 04/25/2014


  –  So glad you have an alternative diaper bag for dads

As a woman I truly love purses and bags but I knew my husband would not appreciate the typical diaper bag geared towards women. I wanted him to keep his masculinity while caring for our child. We love the backpack and the ingenuity your company showed in the design. Good job!!  –   Amy K - 04/24/2014


  –  Great product overall and smart design

I purchased a backpack diaper bag oin preparation for a newborn due in June 2014. I haven't had a chance to use this backpack on a daily basis yet so I Wil likely have future feedback as well but here are my initial thoughts. Positive 1. Backpack is solidly constructed 2. Realy smart design with zip open to lay flat, spot for baby wipes easily accessible without opening the bag, spots for multiple bottles also easily accessible. Very well thought out design overall and quite usable. Negative 1. Straps could be longer. I'm a big & tall guy and frankly have little strap available to fit me correctly. Maybe making the bag a little longer so it fits better. 2. Could be a little better padding on the shoulder straps.   –   Dave W - 04/23/2014


  –  More slip pockets

The large clam shell opening is nice but there are no slips to organize or pockets within it. I wound up getting an additional cosmetic bag to separate food items from the toys that I keep in this area. Wish the changing pad had its own slip pocket like on the padded side of the back pack. Otherwise it is very durable and I like the bag a lot.   –   Amy L - 04/18/2014


  –  Outstanding!

I purchased the billboard backpack for my husband when our first son was born. We are going six years strong! The bag can hold more that you can imagine as now we have two boys & the "stuff" adds up ;) I was so pleased to have found Dad gear as I was not the type of Mom who wanted frilly diaper bags, these bags fit both our personalities. We also have a billboard mesanger bag & sport bag that have held up just as well. In our opinion these products were WELL WORTH every penny spent!   –   Amy K - 04/14/2014


  –  Gift that receives High-Fives!

My nephew is a hunter, fisherman, and first time dad. I just couldn't see him hauling an oversized purple bag with pink tutus, so I went on the hunt for a diaper bag for him. When I stumbled upon the DadGear website, I thought I found a gold mine. I selected the backpack with the universal camo design and crossed my fingers that he would like it. When he unwrapped his gift at the "co-ed" baby shower, I received high-fives and 'that is awesome' shout-outs from the men. Everyone wanted to know where I got it. Way to go DadGear for making my gift the most popular and clever gift at the shower. My nephew loves it!  –   Valerie D - 04/07/2014


  –  good product

Very happy with the backpack diaper bag.. makes me feel like a kool dad  –   octavio - 04/07/2014


  –  Wish I had this for the 1st Kiddo

I love this bag... let me count the ways! I love the organization that is provided with the zippered pockets. The netting inside the pockets are nice to see through so you know what is inside. The only thing I would improve is to make the netting somehow flexible to expand a bit for larger items like tylenol bottles/ boxes. The bag is light weight. I owned the JuJuBe Be Right Back backpack and it was heavy to begin and then you added your stuff and it was too heavy and bulky. This DadGear bag is lightweight and rigid enough for shape prior to packing in all the goods. This bag is not too wide that I hit people when I wear it. Diaper clips are a great feature but you have to use both hands to clip them on. Not a deal breaker. Just something to note. I recommend purchasing the addition of the wipes case designed especially for the bag. I did not purchase it because I thought I would just use the flip top wipes bag from Pampers. When the disposable bag gets low, the wipes case gets lost in the section for the wipes. I LOVE that special flap section though!!! I show all my friends. Oh and I love the design - I got the "Daisy" bag - the not too girlie one so my husband can still use it. I wanted a back pack so bad so that I can have my hands free - If I only get two hands (and not 8 like I need) I want full use while chasing my 3 kids!   –   Marla Deck - 04/05/2014


  –  Best Dad Bag

I bought this bag for my husband and it's the perfect dad bag compared to my diaper bag and he actually enjoys carrying it around! We love the color and best of all, it's made in the USA, wa hoo! Love this bag!  –   Megan Sullivan - 04/04/2014


  –  2nd Time Dad Gift

I bought this bag for my husband to celebrate the birth of our 2nd child. The fabrics and materials are sturdy. The design is well thought out and functional. The diaper hammock and easy access wipes are my husband's favorite features. The light colored interior makes finding items super easy and super fast. Previously my husband was using grocery tote bags, old back packs and any other sack to avoid lugging around our other generic diaper bag. As a result, we often forgot to pack something, lost items, couldn't find them quickly and even damaged expensive electronics due to sippy cups and bottles leaking because they did not have a dedicated pocket. The backpack diaper bag is proving to be a benefit to our entire little family. I'm super happy I came across this company and decided to place an order. Overall, it has exceeded my expectations.  –   Jenny - 04/02/2014


  –  Great For Dads!

For our third child, I wanted something other than the Vera Bradley bag my wife had for our first 2 children. I don't feel goofy taking the kids out now caring that flowery bag.   –   Brendan - 03/25/2014


  –  Must have for dads.

Completely love this bag. Most practical thing I've purchased for parenthood so far. I can take out my twins and not only feel confident I have everything I need for the outing, I also don't feel insecure about carrying everything in something ugly or designed for women.. Dadgear is a godsend to dads.  –   Steve - 03/22/2014


  –  Nice backpack

I had high expectations for this backpack as it's a bit pricey. I really wanted to give this a 3.5 stars, but since I can't do a half star, I gave them the benefit of the doubt ( and rounded up). The backpack overall is pretty nice. But for this price, I'd expect them to pay attention to the details. For example, the zippers, have no zipper pulls. The shoulder straps could be more padded and are a bit short. Plus the shoulder straps often come loose (I have to use a clip to keep them from slipping out). The pockets inside are all nice and I like the quick access wipes. There's not that many options for specific diaper bag backpacks, so I think this is one of the better choices.  –   Chuck - 03/17/2014


  –  Great product

Bought one for my husband who is a stay at home dad who also homeschools. Thus bag is great for hauling all the baby stuff as well as school stuff. We love the wipes window!   –   Cyrena - 03/04/2014


  –  My Husband loves his Daddy Diaper Backpack

Great backpack with multiple compartments. Lots of storage and convenient access to diaper wipes. Also easy to strap onto the stroller. Perhaps price could be a little more affordable though.  –   Annie - 03/03/2014


  –  Awesome diaper vest

I was at 3 baby showers this week, and no one had ever seen this DiaperVest. It's unique, and practical. My one disappointment is that there are no waterproof pockets.. For wet clothes or condensation on bottles. Otherwise, great product  –   Fay Algeo - 02/25/2014


  –  Daddy backpack

Could not have been more pleased with the product. Looks fine on the web sight, but is even more impressive in person. It has many compartments and is made very well! I told everyone at the baby shower about dadgear I purchased the backpack for my son-in-law who will soon be the father of triplets.  –   Joann Desario - 02/21/2014


  –  Great bag, highly recommend DadGear!

Absolutely love my bag! It's practical, not too big and very durable. The quick access wipes are very handy! As a native Coloradan I'm proud to support a local company!  –   Kate - 02/14/2014


  –  Best Diaper Bag!!

We've tried a few different kinds of diaper bags. Finally, when my husband started staying home, he was using a huge gym bag saying that the diaper bags were all a little too feminine and too small. I found this backpack and it has been a life saver! There is so much storage but the bag is not too large, its very deceiving! It still fits me, while fitting him better than any other bag. We are expecting another one in a few months and this bag will provide plenty of space for both of our children! I couldn't suggest this company more! I'm a native Coloradan too... so I'm glad I could support a local company while getting a great product too!  –   Casey Melin - 02/12/2014


  –  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I recently purchased the camouflage backpack diaper bag to use for our son. I was not only impressed with the quality of the product (It's MADE IN THE U.S.A), but I was also impressed with the communication with Scott. I emailed him awhile back with a question, and within minutes he responded, and was more than helpful. This sealed the deal for me. I've been using my bag for about 3 weeks now, and I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy a Dadgear bag.   –   Jason Hudson - 02/12/2014


  –  Awesome!!!

This product is awesome! I have been a stay at home dad for 4 years. Although we have a small backpack as a diaper bag I disliked carrying it. Since the first time I saw this I wanted one. I finally received it for Christmas. I can easily carry 6 diapers (3 of each size for each child, wipes, and whatever else we need in this vest. I show it to people whenever I get an opportunity. 99% of people can't even tell I am carrying all those things! I have recommended this to tons of people. I know of at least 2 people that have purchased it and love it also. Great product, very high quality. I am actually interested in becoming a distributor in my area. There is a major need for these with all the stay at home dads out there.   –   Michael - 01/29/2014


  –  Great!

Bought this bag for my husband. He is one guy in a house of girls so I wanted him to have something masculine to carry all of our little girls' pink stuff in. I love the extra pockets and dividers and easy access to wipes. He appreciates that he can wear it as a backpack and not like a purse and still be comfortable carrying little girl in the carrier and be comfortable and not feel like he is dropping anything or continuously having to readjust it all.   –   Autumn - 01/20/2014


  –  Vest

I had one of these vest for 5 years and when the zipper finally gave out I needed to replace the vest. Even thou I don't have any more small children it is very useful at work I am a paramedic and the pocket come in very handy. Many of my co worker have asked about it and your company has got nothing but great reviews. working in the vest it goes thru a lot of abuse and cleaning and always holds up great. Thanks for such a great product.   –   Daniel S - 01/17/2014


  –  Great Bag

Great bag. It shocks everyone when I pull a diaper out of what they think is my laptop bag.  –   Steve - 01/06/2014


  –  Awesome Diaper Bag!

Great product, great looking, super functional! Only one issue, the lid on the wipes container won't stay shut!  –   Matthew Englebert - 12/18/2013


  –  Dad Gear Beats out Mamma's Designer Bag

My wife and i have a four and half month old daughter. My wife told me i should get my own diaper bag which i was against until i saw what she brought home. Her yellow designer bag was just not going to be on my shoulder at the Broncos game so i purchased a bag from dad gear. This thing has tons of pockets, easy to organize, well thought out product. I can find everything i need with opening the bag and get the job done. In the last four months, my wife has quit using her designer bag and all that is used is the awesome dad gear bag. Works great, looks fun, and is very practical in addition to being a good value.   –   Jason Golden - 12/10/2013


  –  Awesome backpack!

I love all the space and pockets. Fits everything. Especially love the baby wipes compartment at the bottom. Super convenient.   –   Mary - 12/06/2013


  –  Backpack diaper bag

This diaper bag is great. Easy to carry since it's a backpack and not a perse/handbag. It's got plenty if compartments to keep your baby and you organized. I love the backpack. I guarantee any new parent weather it's a mom or dad would love the diaper backpack.   –   Dane - 12/04/2013


  –  Great for the husband

My husband is a manly man so the camo backpack was perfect for him, it fits his style perfectly and is as functional as any moms diaper bag we LOVE it!!!!  –   Heather - 12/02/2013


  –  Great Dad Vest!

We purchased the Diaper Vest for two of our employees. They loved them! These dads are hands on! They will impress others with their preparedness when out and about with their babies!   –   Claudia Engelbracht - 12/02/2013


  –  Great diaper bag!

Great quality and love the look! Not too girly and not too manly! :)  –   Kari Bonde - 11/27/2013


  –  Big for small guys

Good vest. Too big for short/small people. Smallest size is medium.  –   Tom J - 11/04/2013


  –  Great option for active parents

She has her own diaper bag, but this is mine/ours. So much easier to carry. Keeps both hands free. Ample space. Comes with the changing pad. Works well with the Bjorn. Have the orange retro stripe and cannot get it mixed with all of the black bags at big events.   –   Zach - 10/26/2013


  –  Pretty happy

Overall I do like the bag I purchased from dadgear. The only complaint I have so far is with the shoulder strap. I wish that it had a swivel instead of being sewn directly to the bag. The strap sometimes get twisted up, and with a swivel it would be much easier dealing with it, instead of having to untangle it before putting it on.  –   Jeff - 10/24/2013


  –  Nice backpack

Bag is manly and practical at the same time. It's as advertised.  –   BB - 10/22/2013


  –  Great product!

Great product!  –   Jay - 10/22/2013


  –  Great pack pack

bought for a buddy that just had a baby....I wish this gear was around when my two kids were in diapers. Looks like a back pack and has all the ammenties of a diaper bag and then some! We thought out in design with a spot for wipes bottles phones etc. I would highly recommend Dad Gear to any expecting Dads!  –   mike - 10/21/2013


  –  best gift for new dad

I ordered the DadGear diaper vest for my husband's birthday and it is awesome!! It's made with high quality materials and fits great. He really wants to go do things with our new baby and now he doesn't have to carry around my diaper bag. All of his friends want one now too. This is a great product!  –   Megan Michelson - 10/19/2013


  –  Best purchase ever!!!

We bought the dadgear back pack when my son was almost 5 months. I wish we had it from the start! We had been trying various expensive diaper bags but no matter what we tried, it took too long to find things and it was always a pain to carry with the baby and the carseat. We got the backpack and it has made everything so much easier! I can carry the backpack and my now 6 1/2 month old (20lbs) with no problem! Best purchase ever and I highly recommend skipping the traditional diaper bag and going straight to this!!!  –   Jenn Martinkovic - 10/12/2013


  –  the Ultimate Diaper Bag!

I am a father of a 14 month old baby and I needed a diaper bag but not a "mommy" diaper bag. I wanted something that looked good but had to have easy access. My DadGear Original Messenger looks great and is a fully functional utility. The flap makes for easy access as do the cleverly placed zipper pockets where I keep all my diaper changing essentials. The bag is tough and just the right size for everything I need when my boy and I have a day out together. Also I get compliments on the look of it from time to time. Compliments...for a diaper bag..awesome. This bag was well worth everything I paid for it.   –   Charles Finley - 10/10/2013


  –  Greatest Man Bag Ever

I bought this as an office gift to a first time dad in our office. I bought an extra front flap as this first time dad is a swag dresser. He loved it! Fit his manly ways and had a place for everything that will be needed. Very nicely made and compartments for just about everything needed. I would highly recommend this for anyone dad out there! Awesome product - the price is great as well!  –   Glenda Sutherland - 10/03/2013


  –  LOVE ME BAG!

What's not to love. Plenty of space. Well designed. And YES it's made for a man! I get several compliments on it! Would refer this to any and every expecting dad or a dad that doesn't want to carry around his wife's diaper bag. ONE HAPPY CUSTOMER, Alex G.  –   Alex G. - 10/02/2013


  –  The PERFECT gift for dad

My son LOVES his vest! He finds it so easy to change a diaper and basically take his kids anywhere, hands free to hold them. I also bought another vest for my stepson who will be a daddy in November! While everyone else bought cutsie baby stuff, I brought a present for the DAD!!! They loved it and it fit perfectly! Thank you do much for creating items for the dad! The VEST is genius!!!  –   Iris - 10/02/2013


  –  Very useful and easily organized bag!

I had a much larger, more traditional diaper bag and decided to get something new for 2 reasons. 1) My original bag was SO big, I could never find anything. It was a never ending pit. 2) I didn't find the traditional shoulder strap convenient. I carry a messenger bag for my daily purse so I wanted something along the same lines that I could throw my phone and wallet in and still feel like I normally would with my purse. I use the phone pocket for small things like sunscreen and ibuprofen and it works perfectly. I also LOVE the side zip pocket for bottles. I've already recommended the bag to many people who were like me and don't want a diaper-y diaper bag. There is one thing I don't like. The material used for the shoulder strap is fairly smooth and silky which makes it slip and adjust on its own rather easily. I think if a thicker, slightly rougher material was used (my purse uses this type of strap), it would prevent the strap from accidentally lengthening. I understand that some would think this would make it hurt your shoulder, but with clothes, the thicker material isn't bothersome. Overall a GREAT bag!   –   Ashley - 10/01/2013


  –  Vest was a hit!

I just want to let you know how pleased we were with the diaper vest. The quality was outstanding and the orange color was perfect. The recipient absolutely loved it and it was the hit of the baby shower. I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again!  –   Diane B - 09/26/2013


  –  For the stay home dad

I am Currently 38 weeks pregnant so we haven't really begun to use the diaper bag. We did pack the babies items in it for the hospital. My husband will be staying home with our daughter when she's born and I go back to work. I told him to pick out a diaper bag he liked or I was picking the Pinkest one I could find. He got right on top of picking a "manly bag" For as much as the bag is geared for men, I really like the quality and style of the bag as a woman. You can tell there was a thought process when designing the bag. So far it's great!! Thanks again.   –   Jessica S-W - 09/22/2013


  –  Wish it were mine

I purchased the messenger bag and an additional flap for my brother & sister-in-law and it's awesome. Very well made, plenty of room, and extremely good looking. They absolutely loved it and can't wait to use it with their little one. I will definitely be buying on for myself when the time comes.  –   Christy M - 09/21/2013


  –  Good product

Overall, I was very pleased with this product. Good construction and durable stitching.  –   Kiel B - 09/20/2013


  –  dad backpack

The thing is awesome. I searched in stores for weeks trying to find one that was stylish and fit my needs and had no luck what so ever until I found your website. I have already passed along the website to 4 coworkers who will be new fathers soon.  –   jason n - 09/12/2013


  –  Best bag ever

Have had my dad gear bag for 4 years now and it is still as good as the day my dad bought it for me. I use it everyday whether I have the kids or not! Love this bag and recommend it to everyone!  –   Jonathan E - 09/10/2013


  –  Great Product!!!

A must buy for all dads. Great compartments, design makes sense, and very great material used. You won't be sorry you purchased this  –   Paul C - 09/09/2013


  –  no relative to the purse

The backpack diaper bag is a great gift for dads to care for their infant without having to swing a pink or purple diaper bag under their arm. It has room for all the essentials and handy enough that most can be accessed with one hand. It's great to keep dad's involved and recognize him as an equal parent.  –   Beth S - 09/09/2013


  –  For my sons' 1st baby

My son liked having a backpack to use instead of the typical diaper bag. It has all the pockets and easy access for anything and a little bit of everything they will need. Very good quality. Thanks for taking care of the dads.  –   carla - 09/01/2013


  –  Excellent bag!

This a great bag. The best diaper bag backpack I've found. It can fit a ton of stuff without feeling like it's too bulky. The only improvements that would make it even better are for the zippered bottle pockets on the sides to be insulated, a bungee on the back to hold jackets or whatever, and maybe some straps on the sides to cinch the bag and make it more compact for times when you aren't bringing a bunch of stuff. Otherwise, a fantastic bag!   –   Dina - 08/10/2013


  –  Best bag ever!

Just got our new Diaper bag, my Husband and I are very happy w/ it, it's very spacious has lots of compartments and I will be able to use it for 3 of my kids or even beyond diaper bag use, materials seems durable, i like the wipes compartment the stroller straps, top diaper compartment and spacious 2 bottle compartment with netting on the side for water or sippy cups for my older kids, it does lack a insulated milk compartment but easily fixed by having a insulated pouch inserted in the bottle compartment. I needed a replacement part and emailed them the request, they replied and sent me the part I needed the next day, very happy with their service. Will definitely recommend to all expecting moms and dads!  –   Maria D - 08/08/2013


  –  great quality item

I bought this for my son. Baby is due in September so bag has not yet been used. (My son thought it was a briefcase! Ha!) I was very impressed with the quality and the thoughtful design. I expect the bag to be easy to use and to hold up for a long time. (Since I have given the bag to my son I'm nor sure it's the "original messenger.")  –   sandra b - 08/02/2013


  –  Great gift of dad

This is the perfect gift for a new or soon to be dad. The design is very functional with convenient pouches for bottles, diapers, toys, etc. and it looks great.  –   Lindsay B - 08/02/2013


  –  Great look and quality!

Very happy with this bag, looks awesome and my wife loves it to, if she approves then it must be good. Keep up the good work!  –   Tommy O - 07/23/2013


  –  Great idea, my husband cant wait to wear it!

I gave this to my husband for a Father's Day gift. While our little girl isn't due for a couple more months, and he hasn't actually worn/used it yet. He's excited to still have his man card and not look like he's carrying a purse when he goes out with our daughter.  –   Melissa - 07/18/2013


  –  Finally

As a stay at home dad, you learn very quickly that the world of babies is geared to wee ones and mommies. Thanks DadGear for looking out for the all the dads out there raising kids. First, its great not to be wearing a purse around with your kid, and second, the accesibilty of the wipes container is pure genius. Even when I lebd someone a wipe for their kid they are amazed at the ease of this feature and shocked that nobody else thought of it. We have given the messenger to several friends now and they all just rave as well. Keep up the good work.  –   Nick Padow - 06/20/2013


  –  Best Dad Bag Out There

My husband and I searched for a "dad diaper bag" for a while and there was never anything out there that was suitable for my husband to use. We came across a Dad Gear bag and my husband knew it was for him. It's durable, love all the insides and outside compartments, and best of all it looks like a laptop bag. We are on our second bag and love it!!!  –   Yobana & Noel Concha - 04/01/2013


  –  Awesome

This bag has been great. My little guy will be 3 next month and its still going strong. No signs of breaking down at all. Its deceptively big inside and has been able to carry diapers, blanket, change of clothes, and few small toys all at the same time. Being able to access everything without taking it off your shoulder is huge!  –   Sean - 03/28/2013


  –  Too small, cumbersome to flip open

This bag is very attractive and stylish, but is pretty small and very cumbersome to flip open because the front flap side is so heavy it tips the whole bag over. I recently flew with my baby and this bag, and once I loaded in a handful of diapers, burp cloths, a spare emergency bottle, a light jacket, a couple teething toys and a backup outfit for baby, I could barely cram the thing closed. Wish I'd gotten the bigger backpack style instead. This small one is great for routine day-to-day trips around town, but that's it. Not very flexible.  –   Mary L. - 12/08/2012


  –  Unique and useful.

Purchased this item to give a s a gift to one of my best buddies on his first baby's birth. Their response was (and I quote): "thanks for the unique and very useful gift, it's very, very cool".  –   JC Lopez - 07/27/2012


  –  Great for multiples

I have 18 month boy girl twins and I'm able to fit everything we need in here. I like that it's virtually one-handed -- in a public restroom, I can hang the pack off the end of the pull down changing table, take out the diaper mat, access the diapers and the wipes while keeping a hand on the baby. I agree with the previous poster that insulated pockets to keep bottles cool would have been nice when they were younger. Mine is also starting to fray on the inside and those loose threads get caught in the zipper. My only other complaint is that it would be nice to have more storage for wipes -- perhaps add a feature that would allow a standard plastic wipes box to fit in the bottom and use the wipes dispenser to access that? With multiples, a day trip runs us out of wipes, forcing us to carry a large plastic box around anyway, defeating the purpose of how nice and compact the container is. Still, an amazing pack and I like that I'll be able to use it for books and maybe my laptop when my kiddos are FINALLY potty trained.   –   Mom to twins - 07/10/2012


  –  Great Bag

I have been using this bag (Messenger Diaper Bag) for 3 years now with my first daughter and with another on the way it shows no sign of wearing out so it will see many more years of service as well. I told my wife if I had to carry the diaper bag then it had to be something I liked. Bingo!   –   Justin - 07/05/2012


  –  2 years and no problems

This bag has taken a beating! My daughter is just over 2 years old and this bag has been with us from when we left the hospital to just this past weekends trip to the aquarium. It's been over stuffed, dropped, splattered with every baby food you could think of and we've never had a problem with it.   –   Luca - 06/04/2012


  –  Love my bag!

This is the best diaper bag! I can fit so much in it. It is the best bag for traveling as well.  –   Jodi - 02/01/2012


  –  Love your stuff

I want the billboard backpack # 133. Your bags are designed great!  –   Andy - 01/28/2012


  –  BABYBJORN Synergy - Super product for hot areas

My little one is quite hot-natured and sweats easily, AND I live in Texas! This product worked quite well, compared to other products. I could keep him close (which he liked) without worrying about him sweating to death, because the fabric is quite breathable. It's easy to wash, holds up well, and after 8 months of routine use, it still looks great.   –   Kerri T. - 01/28/2012


  –  So Roomy

We have this bag. It is so roomy. There are compartments for everything. I love the bottle compartments on either side.  –   Anita L. - 01/25/2012


  –  Great bag

This bag is great for dads on the go with baby. There are several compartments which make for easy access to baby essentials. The design is cool and can be used for other purposes beyond baby.   –   JM - 01/15/2012


  –  This deserves 10 stars!

This deserves 10 stars! I wish I knew about this 2 yrs ago. This thing can hold so much; 5 board books, coloring book, 16pc crayons, 2 chng of clothes, a few diapers, potty seat, basic first aid kit, 1 pr socks, snacks, my wallet, small camera, small video cam (flip size), sippy cup, bottled water, GameBoy thing, GameBoy thing, etchasketch. This thing is the greatest!!!  –   Amy S. - 01/11/2012


  –  Excellent product

Excellent product, grandson loves the vest. Daughter has 2 year old, wishes she had one! We are spreading the word.  –   Bernadette - 01/10/2012


  –  Thanks for making our life easier

I purchased the bag for my daughter as a gift for Christmas. She had a baby in April and had bought a bag for her husband so he could have his own personal bag. She loves it and will tell everyone about it and where it came from. Thanks for making our life easier.  –   Jane B. - 01/08/2012


  –  Sturdy

I received the messenger bag for my newborn son. I have spent some time playing with the messenger bag, and was eager to let you guys know my inexpert review. I will start by saying that I have gone through an average of one knapsack a year simply through wear and tear. I do not think I am overly hard on them, but they simply wear out faster than greased lightning. A few years ago I got a 5.11 Tactical knapsack, the 12-Hour bag. It is tough as nails, and I have every confidence it will last me at least a decade. As of this evening it still looks as good as it did the day I slid it out of its plastic bag. Your messenger bag seems to be in the same league as the 5.11 bag I have. The nylon sidewalls feel heavy and sturdy, and although the zippers aren't YKK they feel heavy enough (at least the tabs are the same size as the ones on my Carhartt jacket) and don't feel as though they will break if I look at them wrong. I am very impressed with the tear-away-and-replace front flap. I was nervous at first about the velcro strip, but it is nearly invisible when looked at from any direction other than the back. It is some serious velcro, it feels almost like the automotive-grade stuff that NASCAR mechanics use. A few of my friends are working on their second or third kid, and one of them at least I think was using a cargo jacket as his diaper "bag". I will definitely let him know about you guys, since this second kid is a daughter and I think he's getting nervous about the status of his Man Card. Your heavy-duty and decidedly manly bags should help reaffirm his faith in his masculinity.  –   Matt - 12/27/2011


  –  Satisfied Customer

Thank you for my awesome Dad Diaper Bag, first one EVER. Who would have thought that a diaper bag would help a Dad look cool, not me! But I am stoked to sport this thing. My wife would not allow me to carry my hunting pack as my bag, so this is the next best thing. DadGear Rules! Thank you again for this gift to us first time Dad's...  –   Robby B. - 12/20/2011


  –  Awesome Bag!

My husband prefers well-made products so when I saw this bag I knew it would be the perfect bag for him. It has beautiful double stitching on the bag and the colors to choose from were nice earth-tones. I knew any color would work but I went with Steel. He loves it and was excited to have his own bag. This bag is well-made and is worth the price!  –   Brenda - 12/15/2011


  –  Loves his vest and backpack

My son loves his DadGear vest and backpack! It was the perfect birthday gift for him. He particularly likes the vest, as it allows quick, out-the-door trips with the new baby and the 2-year-old. He said his friends were very impressed when he whipped out supplies as needed, including wet wipes, waters, gloves and even a flashlight. I've told everyone I know about your website and your wonderful items.  –   Debbie L. - 11/30/2011


  –  More handy than a diaper bag

I really do LOVE my backpack, so much more handy than a diaper bag, especially for traveling, it even went with me all the way to Germany :))  –   Sandra A - 09/27/2011


  –  great product

I just wanted you to know that I went to a baby shower last Saturday. The dad loved his Dadgear Rock and Roll messenger bag stuffed with Rockabye Baby CD's and Daddy-themed onesies. Thanks again for making such a great product. I will be ordering another bag soon.   –   Ann H - 09/24/2011


  –  great customer service

I contacted customer support online last week and received a very prompt response. Thanks so much. Great customer service!  –   Sara L. - 09/22/2011


  –  love the bag

I love the bag and am taking it on my trip to England with my 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 boys!  –   Charles R. - 09/19/2011


  –  son loves the vest

THANK YOU so much! My son LOVES the vest! Thank you for creating something great for dads. Back in my day, everything was only for the mother.  –   Iris - 09/02/2011


  –  brilliant

I ordered 2 of your bags for 2 males who are having babies this Fall. We filled them with all kinds of baby items and showed them how to use and access everything, along with making them watch the video! They were amazed and basically had no idea how to do anything so this was a huge help for them since they are both first time Dad's. They really loved the bags especially the flap designs. They were the perfect gift at the perfect tme and they were very appreciative. I think your bags are fantastic especially the ability to hang them off a stroller....BRILLIANT! Access to the baby wipes and bottles from the outside...BRILLIANT yet again!  –   Heather N. - 09/02/2011


  –  top notch

Wanted to express our gratitude for the new backpack. It arrived yesterday and are QUITE pleased with the new improvements you've made. The side elastic paockets are a GREAT addition! Also, sewing on the inner clips was a wonderfu idea, b/c that was something that broke quickly. Good thinking! Again, thank you, we couldn't be more pleased; this operation is top notch.  –   Adrienne J. - 09/01/2011


  –  had to show the wife

I LOVE the backpack!!! My sons who are giving this to their cousin, liked it to! In fact, my older son had to show the wife…  –   Joanne T. - 08/22/2011


  –  highly recommend

All around, the Dad Gear backpack is a great bag and we highly recommend one for the dad in your life. He will thank you for it!  –   Jessica B - 07/27/2011


  –  awesome diaper backpack

I just wanted to write and say thank you one more time for my awesome diaper backpack! It was really easy to review because I genuinely love it so much. My wife has given up her "cuter" diaper bag and started carrying the backpack!  –   Josh C. - 07/26/2011


  –  everyone loves my dadgear bag!

Everyone loves my dadgear bag! I have two close friends who I hope follow my lead and shop at your store. My son is almost two weeks old now so the more I get out the more my dad bag gets noticed! Have a great weekend!  –   jim A - 07/15/2011


  –  shown another couple our bag

We've already shown another couple the bag we bought-they are due to have their first baby a month after me! I'm hoping to get them a bag for their shower gift:)   –   Sarah H - 06/17/2011


  –  I like his better

I have to say…I got my husband one of these bags for his birthday. I have a froo froo bag I carry myself. At least I used to carry a froo froo bag. I like his better. It's our main diaper bag now.   –   Caryn B - 06/16/2011


  –  Excellent

This was given as a gift for an expectant daughter and son-in-law, so it hasn't been called into use as of yet. The initial perusal of the product seemed to be excellent. The only thing that would be an improvement would be some insulated bottle/can holders. It is a large bag with inside pockets and a changing pad. The access of the wipes from the front looks to be handy.   –   Chloe - 06/14/2011


  –  We get tons of compliments

The bag is totally awesome. We get tons of compliments. My husband is the primary caregiver of our kids. We have a 7 year old and just adopted a newborn. He researched bags and chose yours hands down. I love his bag more than my Storksak--I'm not kidding. It's so organized and easy to use. Nothing slides around--everything stays in its compartment. The one thing I would say is slightly annoying is the velcro on the back of the front flap that attches to the main part of the bag.   –   Liz B - 06/11/2011


  –  No, I'll take my own

The husband who received the Rock and roll bag really liked it and is using it. His wife told me that she handed her already filled diaper bag when taking their son somewhere. He said "No, I'll take my own."  –   Ann H. - 06/09/2011


  –  Good buy

I thought it was pretty expensive...but it was worth it. Well made, tough. My husband thinks it looks great (I wanted him to have his own so I could have a stylish, girly one). He feels like Jack Bauer from 24! LOVE the easy access diaper wipes feature. It's very roomy. I don't regret the expense at all.   –   Kallie - 04/30/2011


  –  Nice, smaller bag

This bag doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that many of the larger bags have, but we wanted a smaller, simpler starter bag for shorter trips/outings, and this will certainly fit the bill. I really hated having an oversized bag with my older daughter for shorter trips. It was just huge and cumbersome and absolutely unnecessary. So, we knew we'd eventually want two bags, one for quick trips and another one from when we're doing major trips (like road trips, or flying out of town, etc.). This bag will be great for the day-to-day, shorter trips and errands. There's lots of pockets/storage, and we especially like the fact that it doesn't look like other typical diaper bags, and the bright color is awesome and fun. Once our twin daughters are bigger and we need to worry about packing more stuff (larger clothes, bottles, snacks, larger/more toys, etc.) we'll consider a bigger bag. However, for the first several months, this will work great. Part of why I chose this bag is that I'm interested in the larger backpack bag from this brand, so I figured getting the cheaper, smaller one might be a good way to see how we liked the durability and organization of this bag before investing in the more expensive bigger one. So far, we're please with this purchase.  –   LeiLani - 04/19/2011


  –  no longer embarrassed

Your products are phenomenal and last forever! I am no longer embarrassed to be carrying around a diaper bag.   –   Ryan M. - 04/18/2011


  –  made him feel included

No one else at their baby shower thought of getting the new daddy a gift. He wears his vest all the time and it was the highlight of his day--it finally made him feel included in the excitement of expecting their first baby.   –   Angela H. - 04/17/2011


  –  products are great

Your products are great. I buy one for for each of my friends who are new dads. I wish I had known about these options the first time I became a dad seven years ago.   –   Alexander L. - 04/03/2011


  –  creates a stir

It is time for another baby shower, so I am ordering my ususal gift--a messenger bag for the dad. The dad seems to be the forgotten person at a baby shower. The Dadgear bags always create a stir at the showers.   –   Ann H. - 03/20/2011


  –  great product

Every time someone has a baby, we feel this is an appropriate gift for the gentlement we work with. We think you have a great product and continue to spread the word.  –   Lynn W. - 03/11/2011


  –  personal commitment

I've made it my personal commitment to buy every new dad I know a diaper bag from your company so they don't ever have to do what I had to do while looking for a masculine diaper bag (and that is carry some fluorescent flowery girly bag)!   –   Dexter B. - 03/10/2011


  –  WINNER, WINNER!

After scouring the net for the best backpack to use as a diaper bag, I ended up getting the DadGear Backpack Diaper Bag. Reviewers said that it was great for more than one child, had tons of storage, organization, etc. It has pockets on the sides for drinks, a compartment for wipes, one for diapers, and it's just a solid bag. Bought this to replace my small awkward diaper bag!  –   J. King - 02/28/2011


  –  Awesome bag for any Dad!

My husband loves this diaper bag and I love that he will actually carry it! Convenient pocket for wipes and tons of other space for all those little things! A++++  –   S. Hill - 02/19/2011


  –  Nice but heavy

My husband and I chose this diaper bag because it's not cutesy or girly, and he wouldn't feel silly carrying it. It's good quality and looks very easy to wipe clean (our baby's still 3 wks out). It's got nice space without being huge and a built-in, refillable wipes-holder. We did decide, though, that this would be his exclusive diaper bag, because even empty it's surprisingly heavy! My husband has no problem with the weight, and really likes it (it IS called "DadGear"), so I still recommend it, but filled up I think it could be a pain for new mothers to haul around.  –   Noelle - 02/16/2011


  –  LOVES the bag

He LOVES the bag. Really great colors and design too.  –   Andrea F - 02/07/2011


  –  Still take it everywhere

Bought my first dadgear messenger bag nearly 2 years ago, as a gift to my husband, right before our son was born. We still take it everywhere with us.  –   Thuy C. - 02/04/2011


  –  loved the vest!

I got your info from a friend to buy for my son-in-law. He loved the vest!  –   Donna L. - 01/20/2011


  –  Perfect for Daddy

I purchased this for my brother and he couldn't be happier. Good storage, easy to carry. I definitely recommend.  –   Kat - 01/20/2011


  –  making my wife jealous

I am definitely getting a lot of compliments and I think I saved MANY new and soon to be dads from the many lame baby bags out there. Also making the women, especially my wife, jealous of the hidden little bottle compartment that prevents me from opening the bag  –   Dominic C. - 01/17/2011


  –  Great bag for Dad

I really love this diaper bag which I initially bought to use as the only diaper bag for us when we go out. It's a great color (true to picture) and has some very nifty features, with the wipes case on the front being one of the handiest. It also has stroller clips which we use constantly and the 2 side pockets for bottles (we use them for sippy cups) are fantastic and have easy access from the exterior. The inside is super roomy and has plenty of pockets for organizing. I also like the zipped pocket on the front for quick and easy access and I didn't realize until recently but there are also two slim zippered pockets on the front panel on either side of the wipes. It's plenty big enough to fit everything we need for a full day out. I also have to say my husband likes carrying it since it looks just like a regular messenger bag. I do have to say though that I gave up carrying it around for little trips out during the day with my kid. It became too heavy and big for that use in addition to carrying a purse with it so I got a Skip Hop bag/purse to carry for myself when I'm alone and ditched the purse. We use this though on longer outings and when we're together. We've taken it on a very muddy trip and it wiped up really easily with a damp paper towel. I'd really recommend it for long outings and for your man to carry.   –   Judy L. - 12/02/2010


  –  easy to carry

We enjoy the fact that the backpack is large, easy to carry, easy access. I also got my husband the jacket which he uses every day.   –   Blythe B. - 11/11/2010


  –  Great bag

This bag was for my boyfriend because we decided we each wanted our own diaper bag. So far, we have been using only his, since we've been going everywhere together. Our son is now 10 days old, so the bag is still pretty new to us. However, it seems to be pretty great. Probably the best thing about it is that it really doesn't look like a diaper bag. It just looks like a typical messenger bag that a guy would take to work or something. It has plenty of room for the things we need, and I like the separate zippered compartments on each end for bottles, drinks, etc. I use them to bring a drink for myself.   –   Alison - 10/29/2010


  –  still in great shape

We got it three and a half years ago for our first daughter. It is being used for baby number two now and is still in great shape (we are not nice to it). Thank you for coming up with such a great product.   –   Mike and Shauna N. - 10/16/2010


  –  couldn't be happier

Your staff was phenomenal in finding me the right billboard style that would fit my style. I couldn't be happier with the bag. It works great for me. I carry it every day. It is super comfortable. Everything is accessible easily and has enough room for everything I need.   –   David L. - 10/07/2010


  –  the hit of both baby showers

I've purchased two of your jackets for friends and they've been the hit of both baby showers.   –   Lane K. - 10/05/2010


  –  impressed

I am planning to give the vest I purchased to my husband when we have the baby--I am so impressed with it! Very clever idea  –   Theresa C. - 10/05/2010


  –  We like it, but its not perfect

This bag is plenty big and east to carry. However, the built in wipe container isn't sealed well enough for the wipes to stay wet in a low humidity environment. For the high price we paid for this bag I expected it to function as well as a $2 wipe box you can get at the grocery store.  –   John C. - 09/25/2010


  –  very intuitive

My diaper bag is very girly and I think it's mean to make the husband carry that around-haha. Anyway, he absolutely LOVES it. It's very well made and has some great design work. I love that you can access the bottles from the inside and out via the side pockets. He finds the bag very intuitive.   –   Kelley G. - 08/18/2010


  –  Great Bag for Everyone

I purchased this bag for myself after my wife bought a different "girly" diaper bag. We both loved it so much that she decided to steal this one from me and it is now the only one that we use. The bag is very functional and roomy, and the accesible wipe holder is great!   –   Chris - 08/11/2010


  –  my husband felt so special

It's well made and well thought out. My husband felt so special on Father's day. We can't wait for our baby to arrive to fill it up:)  –   Trisha M - 07/19/2010


  –  absolutely rocks

Your product absolutely rocks. I tell every dad that is expecting to check it out. I will continue to promote for you as your product is that good.   –   Alex N. - 05/24/2010


  –  love all the room

What I love most is all the room! I've got two kids under the age of three and I really need all the space it offers. Of course it wouldn't be a dad-bag w/o the great art designs, so that goes without saying.  –   Luke A - 05/24/2010


  –  James Bond of fathers

The vest is great and makes me feel like the James Bond of fathers when it comes to diaper changes.   –   Tim M. - 05/06/2010


  –  total bag

Iam a single dad and really find this diaper bag to not look like the typical diaper bag on the outside but on the inside has all the space and pockets needed for everything. It is so stylish. I get lots of comments when I am out with my son.  –   David B. - 04/26/2010


  –  sex neutral bag

This is a sex neutral bag for carrying baby's gear. It is very subtle and has lots of organizational features.   –   LFW - 04/21/2010


  –  Awesome Bag

Awesome bag. I love it. It's cool, and it's far more functional than a useless designer bag that most women have and force upon their husbands.  –   Derek D. - 04/19/2010


  –  What a great concept

My brother in law absolutely loves his backapck diaper bag. He is a very neat and organized person. He is a new dad and is currently "at home" with his 4 month old twin daughters. He was so excited to show me the compartments of the bag and is especially excited about the wipes compartment. The bag I picked out for him matches their double jogger stroller. What a great concept. I'll be ordering another one for another brother in law whose 3rd child was born 2 weeks ago.  –   Karen M. - 04/18/2010


  –  One very satisfied customer

I came across multiple mentions of how great the DadGear customer service was. Your timely, informative, and rectifying response confirms those opinions, hands down!  –   Steven - 04/01/2010


  –  Fabulous!

Fabulous! Outstanding quality and customer service. I ordered the messenger bag for a baby shower. Why should the mom get all the presents?  –   Ann H. - 03/25/2010


  –  Cool Diaper Vest

Our newborn son would like to thank you. He's so enthusiastic that his dad has such a cool diaper vest! Even his family and friends like daddy's gadget! Thanks to all of you!  –   Bert V. - 02/23/2010


  –  Really satisfied with the quality

I was looking for a good diaper bag and found you guys online. Really satisfied with the quality of the bag, and the service your company provided. Ordering was simple, and all of my friends (who are also dad's) think the bag is awesome. Now I can take my son outside in style.  –   Matthew K. - 02/20/2010


  –  go-to baby gift

I two bags I've purchased already have been quite the hit - and recommended as future gifts. I wish I'd found your products sooner. The DadGear backpack is now my go-to baby gift. One that I know is helpful and adaptable as the baby grows. Thanks for such a great product.  –   Alicia A. - 02/12/2010


  –  met all his needs

My husband twittered about the bag the day he got it, and has been advocating it to all who will listen. He loves the fact that there was a diaper bag out there that said 'men are prents too' and that it met all his needs.  –   Lisette D. - 01/31/2010


  –  he loves it

I purchased the fleece for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. He actually shows it off to his friends - those with and without children.  –   Alison G. - 01/28/2010


  –  psyched

I bought one of your diaper bags as a Christmas gift for my husband. He was mortified at the thought of toting around the diaper bags we were seeing in stores. I actually read an article about DadGear awhile back and went online to see what you had. I loved everything and my husband is pretty psyched that he can look like a guy and still have a baby.  –   Nina - 01/28/2010


  –  Love your backpack

We love your backpack! It is so much easier to manage everything! We are especially excited to use it on our trip to Disney World next month! We have recommended it to all of our friends and will be buying another soon for a shower gift!  –   Jennifer M. - 01/27/2010


  –  Loved this cool bag!

This bag really helped my husband feel hip carrying a diaper bag. I had planned to get a more feminine diaper bag for me to carry, but I just ended up using this one, too, because I liked it so much. The only thing I don't like is that the bottom part of the clasp bangs against the bag and makes kind of an annoying sound if you don't fasten it. Overall, both my husband and I love it!   –   K - 01/14/2010


  –  Perfect Size

I really enjoy it. It's the perfect size, and the wipe holder is great. It works great and I show it off to everyone. I have many friends having babies, so I spread the word about your site…  –   Ryan S. - 01/03/2010


  –  Great for hauling stuff for multiples!

I think we went through 5 other diaper bags before finding this gem! With 18 month B/G twins, we still haul a lot of stuff even just to go out to eat. This bag is great for the storage capacity. You can fit plenty of diapers in the top pocket. The front pocket is great for things you need easy access to and the huge back section holds a ton of whatever you need to take - clothes, toys, extra food, etc. All in all, I can hold all the kids' stuff, PLUS my wallet, keys, lipgloss, etc. I also like the wipes dispenser on the front for easy access when I need to clean the kids' hands. I don't have to dig to the bottom to find them. The two, side bottle pockets are great for sippy cups of water, but I would not be as happy with them if I was still carrying around milk bottles that I wanted to stay cold, because they are not insulated. (They are also pretty narrow.) My only other con is that this is a LONG backpack and I am a short woman (5'2"). So it hits pretty far down on my rear end. But for the convenience of carrying EVERYTHING I want to and still having my hands free to deal with the twins, this diaper bag can not be beat.   –   Dallas - 01/01/2010


  –  good bag

First time parents. We like it. Lots of compartments and works well. We like the wipe thing and that is why we bought it. Not disappointed at all and no complaints.  –   D. Taylor - 11/27/2009


  –  A diaper bag for Daddy

My husband asked me to get a diaper bag that was gender neutral and that he would not be embarrassed to carry in public. I searched long and far for a daddy diaper bag that would be big enough to carry everything we needed for our everyday outings -- extra clothes for those diaper blowouts, diapers/wipes, toys, sippy cup/snacks, my wallet/phone/keys. While I like the look of this bag (we have it in blue), I find it a bit narrow. There are a bunch of pockets on the inside of the bag and while that is a good thing, once you put anything into the pockets there isn't much room in the main compartment. The measurements are comparable to a regular messenger bag. We will keep using it though since it makes daddy happy!  –   J.L. - 11/25/2009


  –  Such a great product

I enjoy my DadGear messenger bag. I try to show it to whomever I see with babies. I really like how the inside is so durable. My main reason for buying was definitely the wipes container and accessibilty. People are really impressed by it as well. Thank you for sucha great product. Continue the good work!   –   Jaimie W. - 11/03/2009


  –  Good find!

Although it's a DadGear-branded bag, I ordered this for both me and my husband to share. I did a lot of research and comparison shopping before making this purchase. Here's a summary -- Pros: neutral color/design, built-in (and refillable) wipes case, separate pocket for changing pad, stroller straps, top handle, sits upright, 2 interior pockets (one small, one large), adjustable shoulder strap. Cons: synthetic material odor, stiff material, small changing mat. Overall, it's a good find!   –   Nancy - 10/22/2009


  –  Good fit and quality

I loved the vest. It was a gift for a co-worker. I was impressed with the good fit and quality. I recommend your products to others.  –   Holly - 10/15/2009


  –  Excellent product

As the user of the product (i.e. the Dad), I want to say how impressed I am with it. Its size, functionality, and appearance have all met or exceeded expectations. I have received numerous compliments on my backpack. Most people are completely "blown away" when they realize it is a diaper bag and not a regular backpack. Excellent product!!!  –   Pat V. - 09/28/2009


  –  We love our backpack!

We love our DadGear backpack! Hnags at the right angle on the stoller (you don’t kick it when you walk), so many compartments for everything we could possibly need. The diaper pocket on top is so handy and I love the bottle pockets! They're so big, we can even fir the big bottles for adults! When I ordered the bag I somehow missed that it had the refillable wipes compartment. It was a great surprisewhen we got it! I commend DadGear on the ingenuity! GREAT PRODUCT!  –   Heather S. - 08/29/2009


  –  Not too bulky

The bag is awesome and surprisingly light despit the design. The material it is made with is soft and light. Size-wise it's nice. Not too bulky. The only possible drawback is the wipes container doesn't seem to be 100% air tight.  –   AA - 08/19/2009


  –  Good design, good quality

I bought a diaper jacket for an alternate purpose - to wear on plane rides, keep all my electronic gadgets handy and not accidentally leave them on a plane. The diaper pockets are the perfect size for a Kindle 2, including its case. The two zippered pockets work well for an iPod and a cell phone. The side pockets are handy for bottles of water or a map. I can even use the back pocket to carry a magazine or such, instead of a changing pad. This jacket is everything advertised, so I'm a satisfied customer. Good design, good quality.  –   M. Leung - 07/17/2009


  –  Twin Mom approves

This bag has enough compartments of varying sizes that it accomodates everything that I need for my twosome. Right now I have it configured for 2 bottles on one side, juice or water bottle refills on the other side pocket, diapers and first aid items in the 2nd compartment, books and my wallet, etc in the first, toys in the biggest, and handy snacks in the smaller top part. The biggest compartment is big enough to put sand toys for both of them in and whatever else. Everything is conveniently placed! I used to have a bag work and a diaper bag for the kids, but now I just combine the two so I don't feel like a pack animal. Excellent!  –   J. Gilmore - 07/02/2009


  –  Absolutely fantastic diaper bag!

After conducting extensive diaper bag research, I found a bag that either parent could carry (a definite plus, as some diaper bags are "girly"), with organization to spare, plenty of room, plus an ergonomic backpack design that makes it easy to manage the kids while out and about: the Dad Gear Backpack Diaper Bag. Can't say enough good things about this bag! First, the wipes are easily accessible without even opening the pack, via a flip-down compartment on the outside. Genius! Second, there is a pocket for diapers that's on the very top of the bag, so you never have to dig around for them. Next, there are two deep side pockets (one on each side), and I routinely fit four cans of premade formula on one side, and a bottle on the other side with a zip-lock bag of extra drop-in bottle liners. Then there are two mesh pockets on the outside of the bag, perfectly sized for a sippy cup or spare bottle (or even my own water bottle). There are two organizational pockets in the front, one of which I use to store diaper supplies (lotions/creams, changing pad, extra wipes, hand sanitizer and the like), and the other I use for crayons, books, and a zip-lock bag with a bib and baby spoon. Finally, there's a huge middle pocket, which I use to store a spare outfit for each child (right down to the socks, in case of catastrophe), snacks for the toddler, baby food for the baby, toys, coloring books, board books and a few other odds and ends that make life easier. This bag is comfortable to carry, as well. We live close to Disney, and have used it on our frequent, all-day park excursions. The straps and the design of the bag make it easy to manage, and I highly recommend it to parents with more than one child! Worth the money! Daddy will thank you.  –   K. Gorgone - 05/08/2009


  –  Good for dads

We were looking for a bag that both mom and dad could carry without looking like a complete idiot, and this is about the only one out there. The bag is very well constructed, and so far I can't find anything wrong with it. In fact, when the bag came, the changing pad was not included. However - a testament to the customer service - when I complained about it, I was sent the missing part and had it within 2 days! I would definitely recommend this bag.   –   Lynn W. - 02/19/2009
