So it’s actually a laptop bag, but dude, I use this bag for EVERYTHING. It’s my diaper-laptop-carry-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink bag.
The Baggallini Alfa Laptop Tote has a million pockets and compartments so you can keep everything organized. While most people could use this bag as a laptop bag or work briefcase, I use it for holding everything I need. I don’t drag it into the grocery store or Marshalls with me, but I don’t leave home without it.
The bag is made from a crinkle nylon fabric that stays clean and doesn’t wrinkle with extended use. I have been using this bag consistently since December 2014 and it still looks new. In general, I take really good care of my things, but honestly, I’ve been dragging this bag in and out of the car for months and it’s held up beautifully.
The tote is a classic shape with two top handles and comes with an optional shoulder strap that I personally don’t use. If you wanted to use this as a commuting bag, then it would come in very handy.
I load up with zip top main compartment with everything from diapers, wipes, baby food, toys, a baby carrier, extra clothes or shoes, store gift cards, pens, pad of paper, coloring books and crayons, granola bars, a bottle of water and more. The main compartment is fully lined with a padded laptop pocket that I put the diapers and wipes in. There is also a zippered pocket inside that I keep my feminine pads, pantiliners and bandaids in. It also has conveniently placed pen sleeves, card pockets, and a slip pocket for your cell phone. My iPhone 6+ doesn’t fit in the cell phone pocket, but almost every other phone would!
A large zippered front pocket offers safe and convenient storage for my tablet and the front flap organizer compartment offers easy access to all the things I use the most like granola bars, chargers, pens, and paper.
The bag measures 15.5″ x 13″ x 5″ which makes it large enough to hold a standard 14″ laptop plus everything else you need without being so large you can’t carry it. It’s the perfect size for me as a busy mom. For my own personal use, I would classify this bag as my diaper bag since I don’t bring my laptop out in it everyday, but I do bring my tablet or iPad with me for the kids to use in the car. It’s just as good as my Spire laptop bag.
As you can see, I fit quite a bit of stuff in this bag! So many pockets and places to keep stuff organized. It also has a handy feature on the back of the bag that allows you to slip the handle of your suitcase through it so it can rest on top of your suitcase if you are taking the bag through an airport as your carry on. It’s perfect for that!
My bag is black but you can also get it in berry, mulberry, gray and pewter cheetah print. Purchase this bag on eBags.com for $99! (Don’t forget to use eBates to get 12% cashback on your eBags order.)
After using this bag for the last 9 months, I have to say I really love it and will not be replacing it anytime soon.
