PacaPod Diaper Bag Review

PacaPod Diaper bags are “the only baby changing bag on the market with the clever 3 in1 organization system.” They are a U.K. based company and they make pretty damn sweet diaper bags.

I thought the concept sounded really cool so I asked them if I could review one.

If you don’t want to watch the video, here is my cheat sheet:


  • It’s really nice. I don’t think the pictures do it justice.
  • The pod concept is really cool to keep everything separate – I’m even wondering if it would make a great pumping bag.
  • It’s well thought out and there are a lot of extras – everything from the bottle separator to the change pad.
  • It can hang off your stroller (the clips are included).
  • It would be really easy to clean.
  • You can use the pods on their own if you don’t want to haul the whole bag around.
  • It would hold all your crap (including a laptop).
  • I’m seriously considering just using it as my laptop bag and fill the cooler with Diet Coke and snacks because it looks so nice and is such a great size.


  • It isn’t the cheapest bag out there. It is really well made and the quality is reflected in the $170 price tag, however, it won’t be in everyone’s budget.
  • Skip Hop Forma diaper bag has a similar concept (sure, it’s not quite as sexy) but it’s $70.
  • Their competition would probably be brands like timi & leslie and Ju-Ju Be if you wanted a comparison.

If you wanted to check them out or buy one, you can find them on the PacaPod site and on Amazon.

  • Thanks so much for this review! There are a lot of features to love, but I need a diaper bag that can be carried as a backpack so this wouldn’t serve that purpose for me. (Though I see they do have other styles that can be worn as backpacks.) That said, I am wondering about a Pacapod as a pump bag like you noted since several styles have that front opening pocket. I’d probably have to get one of their larger bags (ex: Mirano) to fit my Spectra S1, but am curious if you feel like the front pocket of yours is padded well enough to protect a pump? Any other thoughts about using this as a pump bag?

    • If you’re interested in a pump bag of that style, I would recommend the nurse purse. Really good quality and huge. The only issue may be that the patterns are kind of loud, depending on your style. I really like mine.

    • It is fairly padded but it’s hard to say if it would be padded enough. I think my bigger concern would be the depth of the Spectra. It’s like 8" deep and the Napier front pocket is just over 6" (I measured it.) Check out Sarah Wells bags too – I know they are made to hold pumps.

      • Good to know. Yeah, I don’t think the Napier would hold the Spectra, but wondered if the Mirano or other styles that are at least 8" wide might and hoped they would be padded similarly for the Napier to be a good go-by. 🙂 Thanks!!
