Little Tripper Diaper Bag
great day bag
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to buy this as an everyday bag, rather than a diaper bag. So glad I did! It's not too big, not too small. The adjustable strap is long enough to wear cross body. I'm 5'7" and there's still a lot of the strap that can be let out. There are plenty of pockets (slip back pocket; small zip pocket on flap; 2 pockets under flap ideal for small electronics; 2 side bottle pockets also ideal for a water bottle, small electronics, or keys. I'm not a fan of velcro (snag hazard) so removed the bit on the back zip pocket, but kept what was under the flap (for security purposes). There are 4 internal mesh pockets; the material of these felt a little cheesy, so I removed them; with all the other pockets, I really didn't need them, anyway. The light gray lining makes it so easy to find items. My only negative comment is that the fabric could be nicer, but for an everyday bag it's perfectly fine. Really a fine purchase.

Intended for husband, used by me
After a lot of research on diaper bags as a first time mom, I originally intended this bag for my husband and for myself I splurged on a larger, pricier, purse-looking diaper bag. After 6 months, I've used this bag 90% of the time and leave the bigger bag in the car to hold supplies to refill this one!
Being petite, this bag is so much more manageable and although it appears small, it can hold enough for an afternoon's worth of activity: 4 size 2 diapers, a standard size pack of 72 wipes, burp cloth, change of clothes, slim wallet, phone, keys, pacifier, nursing cover and antibac gel.
I only take off one star because the changing pad is so nicely cushioned that it takes up too much space in the main compartment. I purchased a separate changing pad with a slimmer profile, but if I want to use this one, I slide it in the back pocket. If the back pocket were just a tad roomier so that the changing pad could fit in more inconspicuously, I'd give this 5 stars.
That being said, I'm considering buying a second one so I don't have to fight my husband for this one. I've been checking in regularly to see if Lands End comes up with any new solid colors. Hint hint.

PERFECT AS A DOG BAG!!!
I love this bag!!!! I'm a dog sitter and I was looking for a small bag to use in place of my ripped fanny pack. I'm so beyond fanny packs anymore - glad to replace it! I needed a bag that held a lot but wasn't too big to sling over my shoulder; this is purse size. And the most important feature to me - it doesn't look like a diaper bag! Not sure why I thought of a diaper bag, just that they have lots of pockets and are waterproof and that sounded like the direction I needed to look in as they don't make bags like these for pet use. I love all the exterior pockets; it fits the doogy bags in one side pocket, the water bottle in the other. There's a back pocket and 3 in front. It has a good amount of room inside and 4 pockets for treats, keys, a book, balls, and even fits the small Chuckit! stick completely within. It comes with a small waterproof pouch that is perfect for wet muddy balls. Also has a changing pad, and although it doesn't fit inside the bag once you put your own stuff in it, it does slip into the back pocket. I think this pad will be perfect to sit on at the park during fetch when the grass is wet and dewy! See, this bag really does fit all my needs! Perfect, even if you don't have babies. :) And the price was awesome, too!!!!

Love this bag and I don't even have a child!!
This is a great bag! I work in a hospital and use it everyday. It has so many pockets that I immediately know where everything is! You would be so surprised at how much you can get into this bag because the bottom is really wide and I don't think that shows. The only complaint I have is I replaced the three zipper pulls with red and black ones with plastic ends. Looks more fun and the ones that come with the bag are thin cheap leather that frays. Small thing but it is changeable.

The little diaper bag that could
This is a compact bag in a dad-friendly color, perfect for everyday stroller outings and car rides. It is about half the size of many other diaper bags I have seen in stores, but it holds all the essentials I need for outings, albeit not in huge quantities: diapers, facial tissue, wipes, creme, hand sanitizer, spare outfit for baby, small garbage bags, and even keys, small wallet, cell phone, lipstick, pen, etc. in the outside pockets. I even used it on an airplane trip overseas, and its compact size made changing the baby in the tiny airplane restroom much easier. (I did pack plenty more diapers in the carry-on suitcase we brought.) I also like that the changing pad has a nice size and some padding. (You can clean it quickly under the shower, if needed, and then let it air dry.) As one reviewer noted, this would also make a great cross-body bag for anyone looking for a practical bag.

Also great for when you no longer need a diaper bag
I'm past the diaper-bag stage -- I have teens now. I was looking for a purse that is washable, lightweight, and large enough to carry what I need -- but not too big. This fills the bill -- I donated the changing pad. I bought it a year ago and it still looks like new. It goes through the washer and I hang it to dry. There is a fairly wide strap so it doesn't dig into my shoulder; the strap can be made long enough to be a cross-body bag.
I recommended it to my mom and she has one as well. Leather and cloth bags are just a thing of the past for me. I cannot keep them clean like I want to, like I can with this bag.
It would make a good small diaper bag, like what Dad would carry. Or if you don't need to carry a lot of stuff. I hated those huge diaper bags when I carried them!
I'm ready to get another one in another color!! Come on, Lands End --- more colors, please!

Perfect Sized Bag!
I have 2 children- 3 and 1. When my 1yr old was born I bought this diaper bag. Of the 4 diaper bags I own this is by far the BEST! I can pack what I need for both children, plus my wallet, phone & keys. It is not too large and bulky yet not too small. It is great quality. Honestly, I have not used the other 3 diaper bags since purchasing this one! You will not be disappointed!

Disappointed. Purchased to replace previous diaper bag I purchased
Picked up my Land's End delivery today.
Was looking forward to getting a new black diaper bag to replace the one I've had for the last 2 or so years as my everyday crossover bag.
This version is slightly smaller in size, material is much cheaper and flimsy compared to the old one. The lining is grey and thin. The netting inside which forms pockets is much thinner and inferior quality.
Land's End - your quality is going down hill with increasing prices - particularly disgusting when profits are higher with manufacturing done in China. I will not be buying this bag again.
