Does anyone NOT like their JJB bag

I have never understood the obsession w/JJB bags but have recently started wondering if I'm missing out. I have a couple Vera Bradley bags which I use as diaper bags and I'm very happy with them. I love that they are durable and washable. Still, all this JJB love on here has piqued my interest. I have looked at the JJBs and own a Be Quick (which I like fine) but the material seems odd and I don't see what makes the so special. Anyone else w/me? Or am I just missing something?

I just can't find a print I like, or I'd probably buy a BFF. They are all way too flashy and busy for me, and I don't like the plain black and brown ones.

I love them. I think it's because they are so versatile.

I have a Mighty Be, BFF, many accessories, & a Behave- this is a diaper bag purse & perfect for me.

I also am not too into the prints, but some are more sophisticated than others.

I have a BFF and then matching be set, be quick, wallet etc. I like how organized it is, how well everything coordinates and I love the mommy pouch. I don't like how heavy it is and I tend to leave it in the car unless we won't have easy access to the car.

They are heavy bags (even without anything in it's heavy) I think it's just like any other NAME brand item, it is marketed well, expensive and made out to be the gotta have BAG. I have had the Be All, between and be spicy and as much as I liked them there other less expensive bags that would work just as well....

So yeah I LIKE the JJB's but glad I did not pay retail for them

Good to know. Yeah, I'm way too cheap to pay retail for almost anything (my VB bags were all used or on clearance). It sounds like I should just look away when I see all the raves. I did buy another Be Quick in Black Cherry Twirl b/c they are so cheap and I like the one I have. I think I'm going to try using my current one for its intended diaper bag use and see what I think (I've been using it as a mama bag).

I had a packabe that I hated, it was bulky, heavy (empty) and awkward. I much prefer Skip Hop bags. I personally don't get the craze.

I had a Packabe and hated it. It was way too heavy & awkward is exactly the right word (thanks PP). I currently use a StorkSak Gigi and its ok. I've never found the "perfect" diaper bag. I've been looking for 12 years.
