Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Beautifully soft leather, aesthetically pleasing design, functional and practical. High quality materials used to create all aspects of the bag and a unique design, only 50 being made. Multiple various sized pockets and spaces, most of which were removable. I could either attach it to the buggy using the strap or buggy clips or choose to carry it using the handles like a 'normal' bag. An extremely versatile bag.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I loved knowing that this bag could be used after life as a change bag. The removable inner liner is a great idea as it also meant that it didn't look like your bog standard change bag. If you didn't know, you would probably just assume it was a high end oversize bag. It seemed to have pockets for everything and kept things safe and secure (bottle upright, medicine zipped) and allowed for separation of key items like food and change items.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There was only really one thing I didn't like about the bag and that was the shiny gold bits that attached the strap to the bag with the KeriKit logo on. They were a bit too shiny for my liking, they didn't quite match the gold of the zips.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I don't think I would recommend it to other mums. It's well-designed with good quality materials and the leather smells divine, however this makes the bag very heavy even before anything is placed in it.  The softness of the leather leads to issues with the bag staying upright and when you have one hand only with baby in the other, this can be annoying. This issue also extends to the bag not remaining open, so you can't access items easily without holding it open with both hands. Due to the above issues the zip catches on parent’s hands quite a lot and because of the good quality, the zip itself can scratch and hurt.  I love branded named items, however personally shy away from broadcasting the name excessively. I would refrain from making a purchase of this particular bag due to the logos all over the strap. I also found it very expensive for a change bag, I wouldn't spend over £100 personally, the bag should grow with the woman but beyond a change bag it would be a very large bag to carry around.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I really don't think it does.  If you like to show off high end branded products this is for you but it is heavy before anything is in it.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

As mentioned before.  I would change the weight, the strap as its too much, the zip as it’s a danger to children.  The bag is too soft so doesn't stand up or stay open making it impossible to use with only one hand.  Mum's rely on being able to function with one hand as usually baby is in the other arm.  Far too expensive too.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Pure luxury. Beautifully soft leather bag, wonderfully thought out to provide everything you need as a change bag. I thought the ability to pull out the change bag inner after use to become an everyday handbag/oversize bag was pure genius. Whilst I am unlikely to spend this amount of money on a change bag as I see it as a temporary thing, actually, I would spend  it on a handbag. Therefore the ability to have both in one actually makes it great value for money. To name just a few things, there were numerous pockets of all different sizes for various baby things, a bottle holder, luxury change mat, mirror and as I'd expect from a luxury leather item, a dust bag to store it in after use.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The versatility of the pockets and the clear thought process behind the layout of the bag shows careful market research. Everything fitted easily and there was plenty of room to throw the odd afterthought item in on my way out of the door. The buggy clips were handy and it even fitted on the back of my bike.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The bottle holder could have been insulated.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

Great design, plenty of pockets, buggy strap and handles, the zips were of a high quality and seemed durable and there were various inserts/attachments to make life as a Mummy that little bit easier. It was a little expensive for my taste. Whilst I can see that everything is extremely high quality, I simply cannot warrant spending that amount on a bag. I also did not like the colour of the strap against the black leather, I felt it cheapened the look, although it was more practical than having a matching leather strap.

How does this product make your life easier as a parent?

There are a number of inserts, pockets, a bottle holder, space for wet/soiled items - everything has been thought of and provided for. The idea of having a removable inner so the bag has a life after being a change bag is brilliant and unique.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The price! I would change the colour of the strap and make the gold less brassy.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This is exactly the type of bag I would go for. The ability to convert it from a change bag to an oversize bag is brilliant. With only 50 of each design being made you know it is original and by no means run of the mill. It is well thought out and I love the fact it has its own little passport for authenticity. It has everything I need as a change bag.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The buggy clips, various different sized pockets and luxury change mat made life very easy. The bottle holder also managed to keep the bottle upright so no annoying leakages. Plenty of room for everything and roomy outside pockets for throwing in any last minute items on my way out of the door. I loved this bag.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Don't have the poppa's on the change mat - use a velcro loop instead so that the child doesn't have to lie on it.

Tested by Ann Day for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a mum/grandmum?

As a tight Northener I simply cannot fathom why people would spend so much on one bag. That aside, I can see that this bag is extremely high end, the leather was exceptionally soft and only 50 of this model were being made. I liked the number of pockets and the zips were easy to open, even as an old Granny and it was clear they were of a good quality and unlikely to break. I really liked the little mirror, a great distraction for my Granddaughter. I also thought the change mat was wonderfully padded, it looked very comfortable.

How does this product make your life easier as a grandmum?

Plenty of space and enough pockets to separate items e.g. food stuffs from nappies. The bag fitted well on the back of the buggy. Big enough to store everything, but not so big that it hung over the sides and got in the way.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

It is a little costly for my liking. There isn't really anything else I can think of to improve.
