MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Pretty Nylon Eliz-A-Baby' Diaper Bag
Like it, but dont love it
I just rcvd my bag yesterday, and though i like it, im not as crazy about it as i would like. The bag is very beautiful (I have it in black and purple.) However, i wish it were more sturdy. The bag sags, and i dont even have anything inside of it yet. Also, the side pockets pop out more than i would like. The bag does not stand upright as displayed in the photos. It is also much bigger in person, which i dont mind since i love big bags. You can certainly fit all of your needs in it. I expected better quality for the price, but im happy enought with it to not return it. ive already rcvd multiple compliments on it.
worth the price
I'll keep it short and sweet...Love this diaper bag!!!
-easy to clean
-big and spacious for everything with many pockets!
-neutral so daddy can wear it too if he has to
-a little on the heavy side
-pricey, but coming from a very cheap mommy always looking for a deal..it was worth every penny!
so if you're a mommy looking for a diaper bag, look no further..this is the one!
Great bag not necessarily a diaper bag.
Love the look of the bag, I got it in black. It can be used as a plane bag, gym bag, diaper and oversized purse. I thought it's quite heavy by itself but after I removed the messenger strap the bag was ok (The strap and metal parts on it are so heavy but itself, this should be fixed).
I like the outside fron and back pocket and magnetic closure. The inside pockets should be bigger though. There is 1 small zipper one on 1 side, 2 small ones on the opposite side (fits the phone only) and 2 small ones on both sides of the bag (good for small items such as keys, lipstick, binky etc). They are not big enough for big, check size wallets. I don't own one like that but I would love to see 1 bigger compartment for my personal stuff (the outside pockets are the best for that but no zipper there). Not to mention that there are no pockets inside for diapers and other bigger baby stuff. So basically all the stuff inside will be thrown together. I bought the bag organizer to keep the stuff more visible and handy.
The good thing is a zipper for the main part of the bag, but it also has a flaw. It unzips 100% and to zip it back I have to use both hand (like with the hoodie) and with running kids it is getting annoying.
The print inside (black and white Marc Jacobs logo letters) are cute, but very busy, so it can be hard to find small objects if the loose (that's why I recommend the bag organizer!).
I feel like the price is a bit steep, and I paid for the brand. But on the other hand the quality is great (made in China of course) and I will have it for years.
So if the mentioned above flaws could be fixed (zipper, inside pockets, busy print, very heavy strap) the bag would be totally super duper awesome. Now it's just awesome:)
Not as great as I thought
I put this item on my baby registry for a couple of reasons. Mostly b/c the recommendations were very good. I also liked the color (grey) and it seemed like Marc Jacobs most likely made a quality bag. When I received it the color appeared even lighter in person and I was concerned that it would get dirty too quickly.
I have Marc Jacobs products but I think Marc by Marc Jacobs is where some corners may be cut. The bag comes to around $370 with tax. I hardly think this diaper bag is anywhere near being worth that price. Although it is thin making it light to hold--it also appears cheaply made. There are not quite as many pockets or ease of maneuverability as other people have said, there is nothing on the bottom of the bag (like those little metal feet) to keep it from not getting filthy. The changing pad is just kind of thrown in there. All around I think the price for point this product was SOLELY BASED ON NAME. I don't mind paying for luxury. I always do...but then be sure that it represents and this bag did not. I returned it. Don't waste the money because it is not worth it.
