Lin & Leo Babybag Challenge One: Family Outing

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

We were recently chosen to be testers for the beautiful Lin & Leo Babybag. The bag is available in four different colours; red, turquoise, black and tan. I chose turquoise and it is just gorgeous as you will see in the photo below. As testers we will be set challenges to ensure we put the bag to the test thoroughly. Our first challenge was simply to take it out on a family outing and see how it copes with carrying all the family's essentials.

I decided it would be perfect to use the bag for our day out at Warwick Castle with Mike the Knight. We were heading out for a whole day 10am-5pm to Warwick Castle with both kiddies so obviously needed to take lots of stuff with us. I managed to use just the Lin & Leo bag and a lunchbox seperate for our sandwiches. The bag carried a mixture of all our belongings for the day including nappies, wipes, Lin & Leo foldable change mat, change of clothes for Zach, baby shoes, two bottles, my diary, purse, keys, phone, camera amongst other little bits. It's surprising how much you can fit in such a small tidy looking bag, the size is so deceiving!

The bag didn't even feel heavy considering how much was inside and when it wasn't hanging on the pushchair I wore it on my shoulder using the shoulder strap which is very comfy. I am always impressed when you can take a baby out of a pushchair without the bag making it tip backwards and I am able to do this with the babybag. I also like to be able to hold a baby and a bag without the bag being too bulky and awkward to move around which was especially important at Warwick Castle as most of the buildings have lots of steps meaning you had to leave your pushchair outside. The bag got a massive thumbs up for this as I didn't struggle once climbing the towers carrying Zach and the babybag which was very impressive.

I really do love this bag and how stylish it is. Everytime I go out with the bag I get comments on it and even on our family day out I had a few people ask about it. The bag retails at £175 which might sound a lot for a change bag but you really are buying quality. So if you are looking for a good quality change bag I would definitely recommend it.

If you are not sure yet and would like to see more, keep an eye on the blog as challenge number two will be coming shortly.

I was sent the Lin & Leo BabyBag free of charge for the purpose of my reviews. All views and opinions are my own.
