Oh, how I love these fuel cells (OK a lot of Ju Ju Be bags) but I just ordered my THIRD fuel cell because this is a very versatile little bag!!

DSLR:
I got to pack away my heavy duty camera bag, because this little guy holds my DSLR now!! I am super thrilled not to lug around a seperate camera bag for trips like Disney! Since I despise carrying my heavy camera on my neck, I am always setting it down or handing it off to hubby (even though I am the photo spaz and need it back constantly, LOL), but now I just put it in here and attach it to the stroller bar (my fav) with the strap on top OR put it inside of one of my larger Ju Ju Be bags (Mighty Be or BFF) and it won't get scratched or dinged- it is nice and protected from shifting around inside another bag!!

Insulation/Food:
I have to admit, I am not sure the insulation is the best (compared to an insulated lunch-box) so if that is your TRUE intended purpose/use, there are probably better options for you, BUT I find it PERFECTLY sized for those pre-packaged snacks (and it holds a LOT of them), like crackers, chips, gummy candy, etc. I can fit enough for my family of 4 (for a long day). This keeps them in one place and they WON'T get squished or smashed in this, even when inside a larger bag full of heavy things!

Bottle Holder:
I also use this as a bottle holder, I can fit 5 large weird shaped ones (like the Vent-Air) or 6 large standard ones easily). I sometimes fill them with water and bring powder to make the bottles, OR bring the nursettes to pour inside. Since I pack formula/bottles this way, room temp is ideal so the insulation doesn't matter.

Oh, and besides clipping this to the stroller bar, you could also attach it to the outside of another bag with the strap/clip (I tested that out) but I haven't needed to do that yet- but it will be convenient if my bags get too full (where it won't fit inside)!

I highly recommend these!!

Sidenote Recommendation:
I highly recommend checking out the Fridge To Go (we have the Playtex Bottle Holder one) for small items that you want to keep at a SAFE temp for a LONG time (we carry pediasure, milk, and yogurt in it). It is a really small bag (with straps for stroller too). We store the bag itself (folds small) in our freezer and it stays really cold for at LEAST 6 hours (they say 8, I think 6 - but SUPER cold for 6). Since the bag is lined with the cold packs you don't have to pack any! They have larger ones available now (I think without the Playtex marriage, just by Fridge To Go) and I am considering purchasing a larger one for other things, but the small one we have works well for a few common toddler daily necessities (and doesn't take up much space). Sorry, that is off the subject of the Fuel Cell but I wanted to share since we find BOTH extremely valuable and useful!

I'd actually give this cooler 3 1/2 stars if possible, just for things that could be improved by Ju Ju Be. What they should improve:
1. Not tall enough for 8 oz bottles (we use Dr. Brown's). It's a tight squeeze and with the bottles in there it's hard to also fit anything in the zipper compartment.
2. For this price it should really come with a freezer pack. Jujube is just trying to get more money out of the consumer.
3. It would be great if the zipper compartment on top was large enough to fit containers of solid food, so that the bottles and solid foods can be stored separately.

That being said, this is a great cooler - it's sturdy, the zippers are metal, this should last for years with good care. I use it when I'm taking the baby out for 3 or more hours. I stuff it with a couple bottles, a spoon, a bib, some solid food in the Dr. Brown's containers, a couple paper towels. I put the bib and spoon in the upper zipper compartment.
I can't speak to how long it actually keeps things cold, as I usually only need the food cold for 3 hours. It does stay chilled for that long though. If I need it to be colder for longer I will probably use a freezer pack.

If Jujube ever makes the above alterations in design, this will be the perfect cooler.

The print is adorable, but I'm concerned about the quality. I've not even had it a month yet and the top is coming unraveled. I'm not happy about that at all. We've barely used it.

I use this tote for my 9 month olds bottles, snacks and solids. It's cute, keeps things cold, and you can fit quite a bit inside. I manage to squeeze in 3 bottles, 2 small tupperware containers and 2 snack size ziplocks of snacks. The small zippered compartment in the top of the bag is great for the spoon. Would definitely recommend!

I use this bag to transport bottles and baby food to daycare. It fits three 9-oz born free bottles (standing up) along with two squeeze packets of baby food and an ice pack. There's also a small (very small) zippered compartment for spoons - I normally put two baby spoons in there but I'm sure 3-4 could fit if need be. I think the color - I got royal envy - is accurate. It's a pretty color of blue. The inside liner is lime green. It keeps everything cold for the time we need it to (about an hour car ride) - haven't tried it for longer.

With a decent ice pack this will cool 4 room temp 20 oz. and keep them cold for 24+hours. I love that it is washable as well.

Love this item! I have both a toddler and a newborn so I needed something to keep their milk cold when we go out shopping or to a friend's house or to church. In this fuel cell I can fit a freezer pack, two 5 oz Medela bottles of breastmilk, one 10 oz Nuk bottle, and one 6 oz Playtex bottle. It keeps the milk cold all day so I don't have to worry about it spoiling. It is on the larger side so it doesn't fit well in my diaper bag. But, it had a handy carrying handle so I can clip it onto my stroller hooks when I am out shopping. It is great if you have multiple kids and need to keep bottles cold for more than 1 child. I also plan on using this to store pumped breastmilk when I return to work in a few weeks. Love all my JuJuBe products especially this one!

5 stars for design but only 3 stars for its function. I don't trust it to keep cold so I always put ice packs in with the bottles or bags of milk. The first time I used it, I assumed it was waterproof and put ice cubes in it because we didn't have our ice packs on hand. BIG mistake!! But even with ice packs, the condensation goes right through the bag. Not very happy about that, but I can deal with it. I love the matching diaper bag and it fits great inside.
