I received this product free in return for my honest opinion from DadGear.
More often than not people only think about baby products for the baby and for the mom; the dad is often forgotten in the mix. It is important that we do not forget to include dad in the mix. His role is just as important as the moms role and he deserves to know that his role is important. Some dads aren’t crazy active in their child’s life, but that is not going to be the case with my boyfriend. He plans to play a very active role in his son’s life just like his father played an important role in his life.
DadGear – Diaper Bags for dads
It is because of all of this that I eagerly said yes to an opportunity to review DadGear – Diaper Bags for dads. To me these are the coolest thing ever! Men don’t want to carry around a big diaper bag like women carry. Those bags are just too girly and not masculine enough. A diaper bag that is a backpack or a messenger bag is the best invention ever made for men. Instead of picking out a DadGear diaper bag myself I let my man pick out which one was the right one for him. I was guessing that he would want a messenger bag due to his desire to carry our child on his back, but I was wrong. It was a good thing I did not make the decision for him.
After careful consideration he chose the Backpack Diaper Bag Graphic Classic Rock; to say that I was not really surprised is an understatement. One of his loves is music. He writes and records his own music and I know that he plans on sharing his love for music with our little boy. What a great way to get that started. I will be honest we had not looked into the specifics of the bag before we got it so we were like children on Christmas morning. Our eyes were huge and we ooohed and ahhed over every little detail in this bag. Just by looking at the front of this bag you would never suspect all of the features that come packed in this bag.
The first feature that we came across was the baby wipes window in the front of the bag. It has a simple velcro closure that we love. DadGear states that most major brands travel wipe packages will fit in this window. We find this to be great news because you always want ease of access to the most necessary items while on the road. My second favorite feature is their diaper hammock that they have at the top of the backpack. If I really pack the diapers in I could fit a good dozen diapers into the hammock. I like the hammock for the same reasons that I love the baby wipes window because those are the two items that will get the most use in the diaper bag while on the go. Having the diaper hammock right on top means that the diapers will never get buried in the bag and we will never need to dig and hunt for them.
Be the coolest dad on the block!
The bag comes with its own changing pad so that there is no need to hunt down one and hope that it will fit well in the diaper bag that you use. This one is made to fit in the bag and is big enough when laid out to fit a large baby and even a toddler on it without problem. In addition to that on both sides of the bag you can find stroller straps that attach the backpack to the handle of the stroller or if you are feeling adventurous they can also be attached to the handle of a cart at the store.
This diaper bag is a huge hit. I can’t praise it enough. It looks like it is built sturdy enough that it will stand up the test of time with this little one. I know my man cannot wait to use this bag when our precious little boy arrives. Until then it will await his arrival slowly getting stocked full of goodies for our bundle of joy. It might even end up being the bag that we pack little man’s hospital necessities in for his arrival in the new year.
