What they say:
“Who said being a parent means abandoning fashion – the Duffy changing bag is proof that, even if something’s practical, it can still look great.
“With rich leather detailing and a matching removable purse, Duffy is a stylish addition that still offers plenty of space for all your parenting essentials. With adjustable shoulder straps, you can alter it to suit your style, or even remove the straps and use the striking leather handle.
“It also comes with a removable insulated bottle holder – so you can keep your little one’s drinks at the perfect temperature – and a co-ordinating changing mat for little accidents. That’s a lot of helpful features in one good-looking bag.”
Tested by dad Christopher Perry, from Lincolnshire. He said:
I loved this changing bag – and there’s a sentence I never thought I’d say. So much baby gear is designed around mums, for good reason, but it’s great to find a design with dads in mind too.
This bag is stylish and can easily pass as a normal bag rather than a changing bag (to the untrained eye). It’s comfy to hold and the shoulder strap means you can go-hands free. The twill outer fabric is great.
The bag has loads of room inside, a matching changing mat, and a really useful insulated bottle holder. Although I think it would be good if this was built into the bag, rather than being separate, as it could be easy to lose. I do think it could do with a few more pockets, though, perhaps more on the outside or on the ends?
I didn’t personally use the matching purse, but my wife did when she used the bag, and she liked it.
I can see myself using this changing bag for a long time – it feels really well made – and even after I don’t need it as a changing bag it will still hold its own.
