Little Tripper Print Diaper Bag
I will be using this bag as a diaper bag in a few months, but until then I'll be using it as a purse! Really pretty print and colors (I got the orange/blue, it's like a burnt orange color), and lots of useful pockets. Nice size. At least one reviewer said it was too small, and it's definitely too small to use as a regular diaper bag. But for short trips and/or having the option of keeping a bigger diaper bag and a smaller bag (which can really come in handy), this is perfect and why it's called the little tripper! Also the perfect size to use as a purse on day trips/vacations, when you intend to carry a bit more than usual.

Well organized, lighter weight than my older Little Tripper
I bought this to use as a purse, with room for things I need to keep on hand for my toddler also. I have a solid color Little Tripper from 2010 and it is still in use and holding up well. In comparison, this one is lighter weight and has smaller openings for the bottle holders on the sides.
Things I like about this version:
- a fun print that is not too loud
- the strong shoulder strap that is smooth (similar to seatbelt material) which can be lengthened long enough to wear it as a cross-body bag
- many compartments to keep things organized
Things I don't like as well as the older version:
- the side pockets for water or baby bottles are a lot smaller (no chance I'll be able to put my coffee travel mug in one of these for the walk into church, but most sippy cups fit)
- the front flap pocket and velcro closure on the front bottom pockets are not as secure so I rarely use those
- I wonder if the lighter weight fabric will hold up as well as my other bag. It would be great if the bottom was a bit wider or more rigid so I could set it down without it tipping over. Overall, this bag has less structure than the the other one.
In this bag I can fit (with the changing pad removed): a full size wallet, phone, keys, sunglasses, midsize paper notebook, pens, a pouch of baby wipes and a few diapers, a simple toddler outfit, and a sippy cup and small water bottle, with plenty of room to spare. The changing pad is quite bulky, so I omit that in favor of not packing this so tight.
Overall, a good product which I would recommend . I bought one for myself and one as a gift for an expectant mom.

Perfect for my two toddlers...
My boys are now 2 and 4 and have outgrown a large normal size diaper bag. This one is perfect for a quick trip with those two! Love the orange & navy color combo too!

so glad I ordered this!
This bag just arrived today and I'm already excited to use it tomorrow! My son is almost two, and I feel like we are ready to move on from the traditional size diaper bag we have now. Now that he's always on the move I need something that's easy to take along and leaves my hands free. This bag will easily hold all of the things I bring when we go to the playground, shopping, over a friends house, the zoo etc. Just to give you an idea I'll pack 2-3 diapers, travel pack of wipes, his water cup, baby food pouch, snack cup, wallet, and cell phone. It has many more pockets than I realized from the online pictures - 4 on the outside plus the 2 bottle pockets and 4 on the inside. Also includes a changing pad (which I probably won't bring most times) and a great waterproof zippered bag. Great purchase!

I LOVE my orange medallion Little Tripper! I purchased this along with the Canvas Tote Diaper bag after my high priced diaper bag got two holes in less than 60 days. I was already looking for a second bag anyway, smaller or washable, as my sisters advised. When I got the holes in the first one and returned it, I figured I'd buy from Land's End simply because I was sure it would be good quality and last. I got two because the reviews say the Canvas is heavy, yet I was afraid this one would be too small. I didn't expect the bag to be so cute! Also, since the Canvas tote diaper bags are on backorder, this is the only one I have right now and it's completely big enough even for a long day. I have fit a 2oz or 4oz bottle in a front pocket if the two side ones aren't enough--the front flap doesn't velcro over very well like that, but it is possible to carry a bottle there. I did take out the changing pad that came with it, which is wonderfully thick and cushioned, but also takes up a lot of space. I put in another one that isn't as cushy but is wider and longer. I can fit enough diapers, wipes, formula, a spare onesie, the changing pad, burp cloth, inside, with a tube of diaper cream. plus usually my phone or lipstick in the front flap pocket. If I only have the 2 bottles on the sides, I put my wallet in one of the front pockets and I don't carry a purse for myself at all. I've even slipped my dayplanner in the back outer pocket. Receiving this bag in the mail reminded me that I had an orange Lands End lunchbox as well as an orange laptop bag. I'm way more coordinated than I had intended!

High Price Tag for Poor Quality
I was excited to find this diaper bag online since it wasn't so large, but still had a lot of compartments to put bottles and the like. And knowing I was purchasing from Lands End I figured the quality of the bag would exceed my expectations. However, the bag material is pretty thin and doesn't feel like it's made to last. The bag comes with a diaper changing pad which is great, but allows for very little room for a wallet and other things once the pad is placed inside the purse. I use a Pouchee for my cards, ect., so the pad will stay in the car, not in the diaper bag. Overall, I was expecting a higher quality product. I don't believe the price tag matches what this diaper bag is actually worth. The design is cute, but I'm glad I didn't pay the extra money to have it personalized.

Get compliments on my "purse"!!!
Love this diaper bag. Use it for my 2 and 4 year old, so we do not need a ton of stuff all the time. The perfect size to feel like you are carrying a reasonable sized purse that has diapers and wipes and water bottles and my wallet and phone. Everything you need to run to the store or story time. I always keep a full, ginormous diaper bag in the car (the one I had when DS was a newborn), fully stocked and with a change of clothes. This is not that - it's gorgeous! I have gotten more compliments carrying my orange bag than any of my Coach purses. Thinking about buying the navy as well.
Land's End, for design purposes going forward, here are the few flaws. (And this is way better than LE diaper bags past, as I have bought a few before, and they always got returned.)
1. Make the inside pockets larger. There are 4, for diapers, etc. Or, make one side with larger pockets (diapers, wipes), and the other side w/ significantly smaller pockets, so you don't lose your phone/wallet/camera down those.
2. Make the outside water bottle pocket OPENINGS larger. I should not have to fight my bag with TWO HANDS to get a sippy cup into it. I am not talking a huge bottle, just a normal toddler zippy. The elastic and opening is just too snug, and it does NOT stretch out.
3. Bring it back next year with the above modifications, in more colors and patterns!!

Nice for the Price!
Ordered this in orange as a gift for my sister-in-law on the go with baby in hand. As usual with LandsEnd, the quality of this item is great and there's even a small changing pad included. Nice not-to-expensive gift for the price. Well worth ordering!

Cute, but SMALL
I wanted a smaller diaper bag as my son is now a toddler and I feel that I can pack a little lighter, and that's what I got -- this bag is SMALL!! I fit 3 size 4 diapers scrunched into a pocket, a small
bag of wipes, a onsie, one jar of food, some Cheerios and a toy in the main compartment. Granted that's all I need, but that's all there's room for. Other posts on the internet reporting a much longer list of items must be in regards to a different/ older style. The changing pad is nice, but there's no room for it. The front pocket is perfect for mom-stuff. The side pockets are great for a standard bottle or bottle of water, but won't fit most sippee cups. It came with a removable zipper pouch that would be nice for Tylenol, sunscreen, etc but again there really isn't room! The color and pattern are adorable and I love the cross body style. Just be forewarned, it's called the LITTLE tripper for a reason!

Great diaper bag
Great color and pattern. I plan to use it this summer. My kids are out of diapers, but I still need to carry snacks, sunscreen and other summer essentials and this bag is perfect for that. Could even double as a purse.
