I got the BRB2 in the diamond pattern. I haven't actually worn it yet, though. The trip is in 4 weeks.

And I've worn the BFF as a backpack a lot too, and it works great. That would be my recommendation to the OP.

Re: whats the best diaper bag?

I had a Timi & Leslie for my kids and then switched to a OiOi Diaper Bag when my son was about 1. I get bored easily and needed something new

It has an antimicrobial pocket in the back, too, that zips shut and comes with a changing pad. I scored mine for $25, so don't give up!
I have this one in purple and love a lot about it, too

Ignore typos...probably nursing, typing with one finger on my left hand while wrangling two toddlers. yeah, I'm that good.

Re: whats the best diaper bag?

I have 2 PPB's but right now we are using a canvas bag from Land's End (don't recall the name but it has a long shoulder strap and the shorter handles both). Love that it is pretty much just one big bag without a bunch of pockets or compartments. I can throw anything in and go. Keep all of my cd stuff in an itsy ritzy bag that matches nicely and makes it easy to just pull it out for changes or unpacking at home. For me, just toss in my wallet and a small cosmetic bag of odds and ends with phone/keys/etc in the outside pocket. I am a sucker for anything monogrammed so love that it stands out on the canvas bag. Price was great so I won't feel guilty when I get tired of it and want to go back to my other bags and will surely use this well beyond diaper bag days.

Re: whats the best diaper bag?

I have a PPB Boxy Backpack, Touring Tote, Crosstown Clutch and a Weekender. I also have a Fleurville Re-run Messenger and Sling Tote. And a Lands End diaper bag, a Gap diaper back pack and a Sally Spicer diaper bag.

Of all those, I use the PPB Boxy Backpack, Sally Spicer bag and Fleurville Re-Run Messenger the most but just got the PPB Weekender since I need a much larger bag (my little guy has medical problems so we have a lot of extra stuff to bring out with us).

I have a 31 bag that I use. It's the Cindy Tote. I love it. It fits all of my lo stuff and looks like a large purse.

Re: whats the best diaper bag?

Anyone have cheaper suggestions? The JJB BFF bag looks AMAZING, but I just can't justify the price right now with all the other stuff we need to buy for baby and our new house. I had a Skip Hop before, and it fell apart pretty quickly. Also had a JJ Cole Bag that only lasted maybe a year before a pocket broke on it. I want something that will last a couple of years, and has plenty of space for CDs and snacks for my 4yo, plus "purse" space, but I think $100 would be at the top of my price range, and I'd prefer to only spend maybe $50-$70 if possible.

Maybe look into the JJB buy/sell/trade group on Facebook. New diaper bags that retail for $75 or under are the ones you described not wanting. In the FSOT section here, Mom and Dad forum, there are some PPB and JJB bags listed.
