I love it because it is unstructured and I can shove it anywhere (read: under strollers of every shape and size) my Ju Ju Be and Skip Hops cant do that or I should say they can just not very easily.


I usually just hang my bags on the stroller but I do like a little squish some times. I was considering packing the Super Be that I bought for the pool with pouches and seeing how I like it. I might put a messenger strap on it and see how that fits me.

I was also thinking of trying the Be sporty as it looks slouchier than the Be right back.

The only thing I hate about unstructured is the fact that they fall over.

Re: Diaper bags & Purses 2018

I like a little squishyness...but I'd rather have firmer rather than fall over.

K--i used to have a black hole type tote. I made a few little fabric bags to keep my things in. They were different sizes and prints so it was easy to grab the one I needed. Like the red flower one might have been snacks, small blue one had a clean outfit, medium yellow had diapers and wipes. It kept things mostly organized.

Re: Diaper bags & Purses 2018

No, the super Be is really flat and floppy. I was going to try it with pouches or maybe even with an insert.

I love feet though

As far as black holes go.... you can also use traveling packing cubes. I like them because you can see through them.

I watched some packing videos of the Super Be and I think it may be the bag for me. Lots of pockets yet big and floppy. With my travelon cubes and Be Quick I think black hole wouldnt be an issue.
