Though I have not used it yet (baby due in August 2016), I know I will love it because I have never had a coach purse let me down. I purchased this in black last night from a Coach Outlet Store - there is hope all you ladies who can't find it - sorry Amazon;) My husband and I didn't know they sold a diaper bag and saw the display and simply thought it was a really large handbag. I had previously scoured the internet looking for a quality leather diaper bag but the only ones I could find that looked remotely like a purse and worth purchasing were either $400+ or still made of plastic and cost $140+. So I began looking for a large, wide-open, leather handbag that I could order an insert for. That was all I was expecting when I saw this - but I was not disappointed! There is a pocket in the direct front and one on each side. On the inside there is one zipper pocket and two others. Beyond that it is very wide open so I am also hoping to find an insert on the inside but am determined so I'm not worried. The top has a zipper that closes the majority of the way so unless you truly dump it upside-down you shouldn't have a problem. It also comes with a long strap if you felt like carrying it as a satchel, has the coach tag, and comes with a changing pad.
Looks like a win/win and I will try to let you all know how I feel about it after baby Lars arrives:)
P.S. I only paid $167 after tax! Good luck to all of you looking for it!
I'm a real COACH fan! I have more of their handbags than I can count. My boyfriend bought me several of them, including a new large tote, made of the same fabric as this one. So the colour and size were perfect! But, it had one major flaw. It came with a cosmetic bag, but it didn't have any pockets! I just couldn't make it work, so I searched online and when I saw this one, I fell in love!! I'm going to use it as a tote bag, not as a diaper bag. And, when it arrived it was even better than the photographs. It's got an inside zipper, which is great (and different for large totes). The outside pockets where the baby bottle would go will hold my sunglasses and a water bottle. The inside pockets are perfect for my cell, cosmetics, pens, etc. It's so large that I can fit my iPad + my laptop in it... and maybe even a COACH clutch!
I've seen two women carrying this diaper bag as a tote bag. I have been wanting for a long time, but they are very hard to find. Thrilled I could snag one on Amazon. Side pockets are perfect for water and phone. Plenty of room inside for makeup, wallet, laptop and files. LOVE it.
A group of friends bought this for a friend as a shower gift. We travel a lot for work and the idea was that when she was done using it as a diaper bag, it could be repurposed as a carry-on bag. She loved it and since it's black and classy her husband doesn't mind carrying it either.
I get compliments on this bag all the time. I have more then enough room in it and my havens didn't even mind holding it. The leather wipes up so well, and threw bottle space is amazing. I have twins and dirty diapers, clothes, bottles, and powder formula have gone in this bag with no problems of leaving stains or smells.
