First, my “baby” has turned 30 years old so I definitely don’t need a diaper bag BUT I do LOVE this bag. I have actually been using it every day for the last few weeks. It is AMAZING!
For those of you who have been around Thirty One for awhile, you may remember the original Casual Cargo Bag… it was actually the #1 choice by moms in 2014. Don’t believe me, check out www.babycenter.com. I know you are wondering why did it go away, right? Like all good things, it went away and came back even more AMAZING! How can you improve on great, right? Well, we did!
The NEW Casual Cargo Bag is part of Baby by Thirty One. So, it is officially a diaper bag but it is so much more! It’s an easy-to-wear, everyday canvas cargo tote for anyone who’s on the go. Do you commute to work? How about travel to practices with the kids? Spend a lot of time on the road playing mom taxi or for work? This bag is a great solution!
Let’s start with its extended top handle straps and detachable, adjustable strap which gives you the versatility to wear it as a shoulder bag or a crossbody bag. It is in a cotton/canvas fabric with a polyester lining. The crossbody strap let’s you keep your hands free when chasing after the kids. It has two exterior pockets with magnetic closures which is the perfect spot for your keys or maybe the baby’s binky. I have my business cards in one along with a note pad to gather potential customers contact information. I know you are wonder, why didn’t I say these pockets were good for your cell phone. Because there is actually a cell phone pocket on the outside which will fit most phones including some of the new larger ones. No need to go digging around in your bag when you are juggling the baby.
Let’s move to the inside which has multiple pockets and LOTS of space. My favorite new feature is an interior thermal pocket with a leak lock lining. This is a great spot to keep a snack and a bottle of water. I haven’t put it to the test to see how much it can hold but there is quite a bit of room. It did hold enough snacks/ light food for a recent vendor event.
Also on the side is two flat pockets AND 2 elastic side pockets which are great for bottles or containers of snacks. Top it off with a zipper closure and you are ready to hit the road with a stylish, yet functional diaper bag. Did I mention you can have it personalized too? The best part is when you don’t need a diaper bag any more, it is still a GREAT bag to use every day. It is roomy but not HUGE.
The next question is – “Is it washable?” I have to admit the company does not recommend washing this item. They do recommend wiping it with a damp cloth using mild soap only and then air drying. I will tell you I have customers who have tossed this into the washer on a gentle cycle and air dried it who give it rave reviews when all was said and done.
At a cost of $68, this durable, fun, functional and stylish bag is the perfect gift for the new or soon to be mom. How about for the college student or even the work at home mom.

Whose ready to shop??? Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
