Now that I've used my diaper bag for more than half of a year I feel like I've really settled into it and can confidently say it was a really great purchase!
Name - Storksak Noa
Color - grey
Material - coated canvas with leather straps and metal hardware
Features - detachable shoulder strap, removeable organizing insert, insulated side pocket for bottle/snacks
Original reasons for purchase - seems like it can withstand being put down on the dirty floor of a subway train, unisex look, seemingly indestructible straps, seems to have a future as a carry-on bag after baby is older
I genuinely love this bag. Storksak is a luxury brand and while the Noa is not their most expensive option, it was still a bit on the pricey side. But I will say that my mom commented on it's pristine condition the other day. Haha! I do try to keep my things nice but I also tend to chuck my bags around, which is why I tend to prefer leather bags as they can handle a lot. We use this constantly and often I use this as my only bag because I can fit my wallet, phone and a little pouch with my essentials in it along with all things baby related.
We use cloth diapers with our baby so they do take up more space than disposables do. If we are going out for an entire day then I usually do take another handbag for myself, but I can usually ram in the wet bag full of soiled diapers as the day goes on and I can still zip up the Noa to keep everything from spilling out.
Baby for scale. :)
The last time Harold and I headed out for a play date I filmed a What's In My Diaper Bag video to show all of the things I put in it for a day out. Honestly, when I bought the bag I wasn't 100 percent sure that I'd be using cloth diapers so I am glad that the Noa does work with them. Check out the video if you are interested in seeing what I carry around in it!
Thanks for reading!
