I thought this might come in handy when we were expecting our son. I had no idea it would become a staple of our travels for the last 2+ years. We give these as shower gifts all the time. There are still plenty of occasions where we need a diaper bag for other baby/kid "stuff", but for a quick run out to the store, or to keep everything needed for a diaper change accessible, this simply cannot be beat. Easy enough to open/close with one hand once the clasp on front is open...key in some of the yukkier restrooms you'll encounter. This is without a doubt the piece of baby gear we used the most.
