Detailed Review of the JJ Cole Satchel Diaper Bag

This bag is available in two colours; Stone Arbor color and also in an Aspen Arbor color. As you can see from the pictures , this is a good looking bag, and the neutral stone color is probably the better choice if you have to find a diaper bag that suits both parents. 

Let's have a closer look at what is good and not so good about this bag from JJ Cole.

Who Would Buy the JJ Cole Satchel?

This one is very good for Moms and Dads with just one baby. However it can easily hold enough for either twins, or a baby and toddler.

There is plenty of room inside this one. The JJ Cole brand is a well recognised designer baby brand, so this one will get noticed. 


JJ Cole Satchel Details

Size and Weight - It measures 18.5" by 11" and is 8.5" wide so a really good size which will hold plenty and it weighs exactly one pound in weight. Those two things are important to know, as this size of a bag will hold a lot, and even when loaded with the baby's things should still be light enough to carry around.

Straps and Grips - This one has a messenger strap which then allows you to have both hands free. That is really useful if you have other kids to take care of. The stroller grips that come with this bag work really well.

  • Lots of inner and exterior pockets
  • Lots of storage and a very roomy interior
  • Measures 18.5 x 8.5 x 11"
  • Weighs 1.0 lbs
  • Made from: 100% Polyester
  • Very stylish designer look
  • Includes a changing pad
  • Optional shoulder strap
  • Grips for a stroller

Pockets - There are plenty of pockets so as you can find things easily, and that is an important consideration with any diaper bag. The pockets on the outside are useful for keeping things like, your own cell phone, car keys and for things like a sippy cup. Those on the inside can then be used for holding diapers, wipes etc.

 JJ Cole Satchel Diaper Bag Video Review

Below you can watch a video that shows in detail the JJ Cole Satchel actually being used by a Mom.​

JJ Cole Satchel- SUMMARY

My own opinion here is that the bag is very good for most people. If you are going to spend $60-70 and the bag starts to fray, then don't be shy to get on the phone and get it replaced under warranty.

It clearly is a popular choice for many people. My only small concern is that a small number of reviewers did say that the bag tends to fray. This happens where the straps attach, and they start to pull away from the material. 

Now all that said, you have to balance those negative comments with the majority of positive comments. A lot of buyers loved the size and weight, and they especially loved the appearance. Those Moms who used strollers simply loved this bag.

As you can imagine people's opinion will always differ, and at the end of the day, all you can do is read the reviews like this one, and make your own mind up.

I personally would recommend this one myself, and I can see why people would buy it, as it looks great and is a good size with plenty of pockets.
