Baby November 28, 2020
As a family we have a preference for the neutral and unisex baby items making it easier to share the parentally responsibilities as much as possible which means the look of the Childhome Care Backpack was right up our street.
With a slightly more masculine look it is nice to see an item aimed at the chaps this time. This bag has a simple design and with the necessary storage making it suitable for day trips, nursery or hospital, measuring up at 31 x 17 x 41cm it might be a little too small for those parents who like to pack the entire house with them. The 100% PU Leather looks great and feels lovely and soft to the touch, however it is a little delicate and can get scratched on rough surfaces, better suited for an urban environment than the wilderness. I liked the front compartment designed for quick location of all the nappy essentials, it has a changing mat and two pockets for all the accessories. Inside the main part of the bag there is an elasticated band for bottles and another pocket for whatever you fancy (you can never have enough pockets). There is a neat little detachable information tag for your details, so the nursery knows whose bag belongs to who. Back on the outside there is a little zipped pocket and two netted side pockets for storing drinks, snacks, toys or anything else you might need quick access to, if you child is like mine, they will be filled with stones, feathers and conkers.
The fastenings are good quality with strong zippers, however we would love see fully waterproof zips added for piece of mind, although during my testing I didn’t find any leaks. The two padded adjustable straps mean both hands are free at all times but the Pu Leather and zero ventilation and the back panel means you might find yourself with a sweat patch on warmer days. If you are looking for a bag to handle rugged adventures this might not be the one for you, but if it’s a stylish, functional and unisex bag ready for playdates and weddings alike this bag has got what you need.
