When you hear the name “Thule”, you can rest assured that you are talking about a product that is good quality, reliable and has the added value of being stylish too.
While I am personally past the baby phase and therefore nappy phase, my colleague is not. Together, we have the opportunity of reviewing a Thule Sleek Nappy Bag Review and I can say, I’m extremely jealous I didn’t have a bag like this when my kids were babies. I even debated keeping it for myself and even using it for daily use as it’s big enough for my laptop and goodies to all fit in.
My colleague and I chatted about the bag and we both agree that other than the fact it includes a changing mat, our favourite feature is it’s able to be used as a sling (over the shoulder) or backpack – it can be adjusted to be used for both. So, it makes it practical for if you need to have a free hand(s) e.g. on a hike, a shop where you have baby in one hand and don’t want to have this bag constantly slipping off your shoulder.
Features worth mentioning:
- Practical – its the perfect nappy bag when you are out for an hour or 2 and don’t want to lug around a heavy bag.
- A useful safety feature is it has a dedicated “secret” section for you to store your phone and keys so it’s not visible to everyone around you.
- The material is easy to clean – wipe down with a warm cloth and you’re good.
- The material looks stylish, but you can see and feel it is durable.
- It can be used for years to come – it doesn’t need to be limited to being just a nappy bag, so you won’t need to give it up at all if you love using it. And, let’s face it – having kids, the more bags you have available, the better!
Side note: I love the Grey colour myself, but Thule has made other colours available and not everyone will like the Greyish tone of this one (personal preference), so know there are a variety of colours available including: Grey, Melange Midnight, Black Shadow, Grey, Navy Blue and Energy Red.
The nappy bag is great, but there are some things to keep in mind for this particular nappy bag which may be a con for you:
- There are limited compartments, so one will need to be organised on packing the bag.
- If you are bottle feeding, there isn’t any area for insulating bottles, so you will need to keep that in mind. Or, use a flask if you want to keep water warm.
- It is on the more pricey side of nappy bags – at this time of this posting, the retail price cost of this nappy bag is R1799.
