This bag has infinite possibilities! Starting on day 1, I used almost every pocket when taking the big bro to school: snacks, water bottles, spare clothes. Day 2 was with the baby and it had room for diapers wipes and of course already put the changing pad to use. Day 3 I took it to work. By far the best day bag I own.
I use this bag daily, and just gifted one to a friend who is expecting. Love love love.
I bought this bag along with the Steady 26 to use as an outing bag with my 4 year old, because he’s out of diapers and I don’t have to lug as much stuff around for him. I love the size, it’s akin to a compact daypack that you’d take on a hike, so it’s lighter and easier to chase my toddler around in without getting disgustingly sweaty. It still has enough pockets to separate out all the stuff you want to have on hand for just-in-cases. There’s a good sized snack pocket and one for a water bottle. I’d still stick with the bigger bag for a kid in diapers, but I get excited when it’s just me and the older guy so I can shed all the baby stuff and take this smaller bag with me instead.
This is the third diaper/kids bag we’ve owned for our two kiddos, and combines the best of the others. It’s significantly more solid, durable, and comfortable than the other bags we’ve owned. It wears as comfortably as any of the best regular backpacks I’ve owned. The number of pockets and pouches is great. I especially appreciate the huge “snack pocket” at the top, it’s at least 2x as big as any of the other bags we’ve had and I can pack multiple outings worth of bars and pouches in there. The two wing pockets are great for pacifiers, eating/drinking implements, sunblock, creams, sanitizer, all the odds and ends. The front horizontal zip is great for diapers and wipes, and with all of these pockets I’ve never actually filled the main pocket all the way. My previous bags were always bursting at the seams and this one is never full.
Purchased the Ready.22 as a baby shower gift. Had to update the delivering address after placing the order and it all worked efficiently. Our kids are pleased with the pack.
I got this great bag for a friend and he loved it. Great look and functional. Definitely recommend.
I just took the bag on its first trip - loved it - packed great and could expand as needed. Highly Recommended.
Even though I am "grammy" to five beautiful grandchildren, it is unlikely my Ready 22 bag will ever see a messy diaper. What I have used it for is to carry my laptop, an overnight bag when I babysit some of the grandkids, and as a carry on when I travel! A friend suggested it would be great for camping and hiking and the changing pad could double for sitting or eating when you are roughing it! It is a great looking bag and the quality is beyond any bag on the market! You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
We have a 1 and 2.5 year old and my family has spent the past few years trying to find a family friendly bag that both my husband and I would like. We are a very active family so need both style and function. This bag is exactly what we've been looking for. It does not look like a "diaper bag" which my husband appreciates and its incredibly comfortable (i.e. wear all day comfortable). I personally appreciate all of the well thought out pockets/areas for storage. Highly recommend!
This bag has it all. Lightweight but durable, with all the pockets a parent could ask for. It’s simple and sophisticated. I would highly recommend!!
What a great bag. It’s got pockets for everything and looks great
This backpack exceeded my expectations in terms of quality. Price point is higher than our previous diaper bag/backpack from Amazon, but it's significantly better quality (material, fit, padding for shoulders) and design (pockets for staying organized and not losing stuff to the bottom of the bag). It seems like it will last, plus much more comfortable to wear for longer walks, schlepping through a long travel day with kids, etc. Also love that it doesn't look like a diaper bag, but has all the functionality of one. Looks stylish in person- colors true to pictures. Fits both me (5'7) and my husband (6'3).
My husband has been complaining about not having a good bag when running around on day trips, birthday parties, etc, with our toddler, so just got this for him for an early Father’s Day gift. It’s been awesome- multiple large compartments that are easy to access so things don’t end up in a jumbled mess where we forget what’s in it. Now we have a compartment for things that always stay in the bag, and a compartment that we fill and empty as needed per trip, plus small easy access spots for phone, wallet, keys yada yada. Looks great, too, and awesome quality for the price compared to the other bags we thought about.
I recently upgraded to the Ready 22 from a lightweight Patagonia tote pack. I originally chose the Patagonia tote for its simple outdoorsy aesthetic that matched our family's needs in the early newborn phase.
We switched to the Ready 22 as we needed a bag with greater diversity. The Ready 22 has a well designed external/internal organizational system that we didn't have in our previous bag. The Ready 22 has a functional number of compartments/pockets allowing for items to be easily stored and located on the go. As soon as we started using this bag we realized what we had been missing... lucky for us we have 10-15 more years to carry our family gear in this pack!
Quick fit note: I am 5'0, my husband is 5'9, the pack's fit adjusts well to both of our bodies. And as a petite female the bag conforms to me and is padded for comfort, especially on my shoulders when fully loaded.
I'm excited to keep using this pack for our daily adventures and future international travels as a family of three.
