Boken Diaper Bag Review and Giveaway!

 *I received a complimentary Boken Every Day Bag for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

As a first-time mother and a busy fashion consultant, Boken co-founder Sawako Yamauchi faced a dilemma finding a diaper bag that fit her needs, fit her lifestyle, and kept up with her active, hectic schedule.  She finally found the answer but it wasn't a diaper bag it was a travel backpack.

At Boken they love designer handbags as much as anyone, but they needed something different, so they created the most lightweight diaper bag on the market that allows you to be hands free, and it wipes clean easily!

Every mother, father, grandparent, and nanny needs a great versatile bag to carry everything needed for a fun outing with children, whether it's shopping at the mall, going to the beach, or a day at the zoo, we all have struggled with having the wrong bag at times.  That's why I was thrilled when Boken asked me to review their Every Day Bag!  This bag looked to be so versatile I knew it would be a great addition to my bag collection!

Boken sent me their Every Day Bag in Aqua for review!  I couldn't wait to put this bag to use.

This great bag came packed in a little zip pouch, I was surprised how compact it was, when I opened the zipper I found a huge changing pad along with the rest of the Every Day Diaper Bag packed tightly inside.

The Zipper pouch turns into a zipper compartment on the inside of the bag.  I like that the storage pouch is part of the bag and not a separate pouch you have to keep track of.  The Every Day Bag has multiple compartments, water resistant easy to clean fabric, and only weighs 13oz.  The Every Day Bag comes in a variety of colors!  There is 2 easy access zipper compartments on the front of the bag that are great for mom and dads personal items along with an additional zipper compartment on the inside.  The main zipper opens to a huge area that you can fit everything you will need for a family day out!

There is 2 side pockets that are great for baby bottles or water bottles, I love how big they are I was able to fit 2 water bottles on the mesh side, and my sons sippy cup fit with plenty of space on the side with the Velcro flap.  I like his sippy cup on the side with the flap so I know it stays secure and clean!

I was very surprised how large the changing pad is!  It is 22" x 24" which is way bigger than any other changing pad I have, yet it folds up nicely and fits perfectly in the bag!

This bag is so versatile!  I love how you have 3 different caring options to fit your needs.  It is a tote with detachable messenger and backpack straps.  It is lovely as a tote!

But if you need something a little more hands free you have the option to switch it to a messenger bag or a backpack!  The detachable messenger strap can be stored away in one of the convenient zipper pouches when you are not using it, and the backpack straps hide in a velcro compartment behind the top zipper.  The baby-wearing friendly-backpack distributes weight evenly to reduce back strain.  It only takes a few seconds to switch between the 3 styles.

I love this bag and would highly recommend it for any family!  It is so versatile and has so much space!  We are planning a trip to Disneyland this spring, and I can guarantee this bag is one that will be going with us!  It is water resistant; there is plenty of space for a change or 2 of clothes and much much more! Another great thing about the Every Day Bag is that dad won't mind carrying it either!
