Convertible Baby Bag
I Love it SOOO Much!
So I purchased this bag in black microfiber and was really disappointed. The fabric didn't have any flex or give so it was very structured and looked odd worn crossbody, plus the flap for the pocket where the changing pad goes would jut out instead of laying flat, again because the fabric is so stiff and rigid. It just didn't fit as much as I'd like (again-fabric not flexible), so I returned it. I was sad because in theory the bag was amazing! I'd really been excited to have a backpack option, and it was just plain chic in black. Then I noticed that on the same bag but in the prints the flap that annoyed me previously layed totally flat in the quilted fabric, so I took a closer look. This fabric has a lot more give and flex, which allows that pocket to lay flat, and allows the bag to fit on your body better when carrying it, plus allows you to get more into it. Now I'm so in love! So glad I gave this bag another chance. I've tried a dozen diaper bags but now the search for the perfect one is over! I can keep ALL of my baby's stuff and mommy essentials plus room to throw any extras for the day on top, like a wrap, carrier, or extra large blanket. I never liked shoulder bags that were in the way with baby but the shape of this one makes it easy to push it sort of on to your back so it's out of the way. And speaking of back, I've worn it as a backpack too! I like to babywear and have my daughter in a front carrier so this I've put on my back and been completely hands free for shopping! It's a lifesaver.
I'm just so in love. If you're on the fence and need a bag that's large enough (even for cloth diapers, which I use) and that's flexible enough to be carried a few different ways, this is it! I even carry it by the tote handles, which I initially thought would be pointless. It's just so perfect.
I LOVE IT! I have it in clementine which is way more beautiful in person, the whites and yellows come out to give it this bright and happy disposition where just looking at the bag makes me happy, and it makes me want to get out of the house to use it. I just can't say enough amazing things about this bag. I'm in love!

Ok so...at first I was wanting the Make a Change Baby Bag, but after reading reviews I decided to give this bag a try. It was bigger than what I thought but so roomy for all of my essentials! I love that I can wear it as a crossbody or just a shoulder bag (I haven't tried the backpack after reading other reviews.) About a week after I had it, one of the mesh pockets ripped on the seam where the mesh meets the elastic. VB was more than happy to replace my bag and I just received my new one in the mail. I am so pleased with VB customer service and this bag. The wipeable interior and mesh pockets are lifesavers. Also, the Tutti Frutti print is perfect. All around great!!

Love this bag !!!
I have this bag in Flower Shower, I know this is a baby bag, but.....I use it as a work bag, it converts to a back pack and it has alot of pockets, roomy but not so big that it feels bulky. Everything in one bag, I LOVE IT !! my all time favorite.

Plenty of room for toddler and newborn stuff
My mom got me this bag right before the birth of my second baby because I was so tired of carrying around a lame cheapo diaper bag and feeling like a boring old mom, and I'm so happy with it!
I feel stylish, and the midnight blue pattern has gotten me lots of complements. It's pretty but not too frilly for a family with all boys.
It has plenty of room for all my newborn gear plus room for a change of clothes and snacks for my toddler. I love the adjustable strap so that I can carry it over my shoulder when my hands are full or shorten it to sling around the stroller handles. The two front outer pockets have the wipe-able inner lining which is great for stuffing wet/dirty clothes into without worrying about messing up the clean stuff in the big pocket. The mesh inner pockets keep stuff from getting lost in the big compartment, and the washable changing pad has held up to washings great so far the last three months, though I do worry about it ripping eventually.
We brought this bag with us through four airports and a themepark and I am very happy with it.

Love this bag!!
I received this diaper bag as a baby shower gift from my mother-in-law. I wanted a completely different bag, but am so glad she ignored me. This bag is amazing!!! It has lots of pockets (inside and out). It has a bunch of room inside for everything a little one needs. Plus, whatever my husband doesn't want to carry and tosses in there. :) Love, love, love this bag!!! Bonus it comes in super cute colors!!

Great size and shape; backpack function needs work
I tried this item out in a store before purchasing the pattern I wanted online. I love the comfort of true backpack-style bags, but I often feel like I'm digging in a bottomless pit for that cherished box of raisins or baggie of Cheerios because of the shape of the backpack. The size and shape of the convertible bag are perfect for me. However, stringing the long strap through the ring at the top of the bag (for backpack-style wearing) was not very comfortable. When you try to put it on or take it off--one shoulder at a time--the whole bag slides down the strap toward the other arm. My solution is to get crafty! When I receive it, I'm going to make new backpack-style straps for it...two separate straps instead of one. The metal ring at the top of the bag is rectangular and has plenty of space for two clasps to be attached to it, rather than stringing the one original long strap through. I'll also make the straps padded by using some quilted fabric or possibly stuffing them with some batting. I'll check back in and let you know how it works!

Great Diaper Bag
This bag was a gift from my husband's best friend at our baby shower. I love it! It can carry all of your baby essentials and more. It looks great too. I've received many compliments. I definitely recommend it to all the moms who like something different.

Great Baby bag!
Recently bought this bag! I love it! It keeps me so much more organized than my pervious diaper bag. It fits everything I need for baby, plus all of my personal things. I love that I can wear it as a backpack or messenger style. I love the outer pockets and how the inside is able to be wiped clean. I love how light the bag is as well; which when you carry so much baby stuff is important! Seriously best purchase I've made when it comes to bags.

Wish I would have found this sooner
THIS BAG IS HEAVEN! First, I must say the Heather print is gorgeous! I really wish I would have splurged when my daughter was born and bought this for my self. The crossbody strap is a MUST HAVE on any diaper bag, and this one is so comfortable. The bag has so many pockets (after having it for several weeks, I discovered two pockets that I did not initially know existed). The two 2 front exterior pockets I use for diapers and a wipe case (which gives them such easy accessibility) and the two side pockets I use for a sippy and a cup of "Wet ones." The front "flapped" pocket, I use for all medicine, creams, etc.
Seriously, best mommy product I've invested in since the "Hooter Hider." :-)

I feel so organized!
Treated myself to this diaper bag after many years of using the original style. I'm pleased with the mesh pockets inside and the lining. I haven't used it as a backpack, and don't really intend to, but I do convert the straps to the backpack style so I can attach the bag to my stroller's handles. I love how this stays on my shoulder, even when I'm wearing a puffy down coat, and it feels relatively light even though stuffed full. Loving the more structured style: I feel much more pulled-together and organized! I have the Canterberry Magenta, not a babyish pattern, and feels as neutral as a Vera Bradley pattern can, since I wear a lot of black. Highly recommend.
