By Jak Burke,
Let’s be honest, a lot of diaper bags look like … diaper bags. It’s not that we have a problem with the color pink or a paisley interior but sometimes you just want something that looks a little outside of the box. This is especially true for new dads on the beat with junior.
Looking cool and serving a baby’s toilet needs don’t have to be mutually exclusive. So we found these 3 stylish diaper bags that would look chic on any Papa’s shoulder.
Timi and Leslie “Rachel Convertible Bag”
Don’t be fooled by the girly sounding name – this bag is about as rugged as they get. Made from a versatile faux leather and within the carry-on size – this bag is a one-stop baby shop. Distributed by Luggage Pros.
13″ x 16″ x 4.8″
• Faux Leather
• Two small front pockets with turn lock closure
• Two front U-zip pockets
• Exterior back pocket
• Top braided carry handles with 9.5 handle drop
• Detachable, adjustable cross body strap so you can wear it hands free whenever you need to
• Main zippered compartment
• Specially designed changing pad with a front mesh pocket where you can store your diapers, wipes and creams when you need to make a quick diaper change
• Stylish clutch that you can use as your purse with interior credit card slots and an inside zipper pocket
• Insulated bottle tote to keep your baby’s bottle warm or cool

Chester Satchel Bag
Looking for something a bit more preppy? This might be just the ticket and affordable too. A cleverly designed changing bag with lots of handy features. Made from smart hard-wearing leather-look material with internal pockets to keep everything you need organized. It also has a large exterior back pocket with magnetic closure that contains a coordinating padded changing mat. The shoulder strap is fully adjustable and there are additional buggy clips making it easy to hang on most strollers.

Four internal elasticated pockets
Zipped pocket for valuables
Insulated removable bottle bag
Large exterior back pocket containing a padded changing mat made from phthalate-free PVC

This is another occasion where a brand’s feminine name shouldn’t put off the masculine shopper. Many diaper companies cater to dads and generally have one or two non-pink or paisley designs. This bag is both sleek and compact.
