Ju Ju Be Packabe VS Timi and Leslie 2 in 1 Backpack

A customer requested some comparison info. Hope this helps anyone who's on the fence :)

Timi and Leslie 2in 1
Ju Ju Be Packabe
 W-11" H"-14 D-6"
 H-13.5" W-13" D-5.5"
Exterior Pockets
Pocket Information
* Front Pocket: double magnet closure buttons with flap. Inside this front pocket there are 3 elastic top mesh pockets. This pocket is big enough to fit a bunch of items including a large wallet (ie. Ju Ju Be Be Major), keys, cell phone and more.
* Right above that pocket is a zippered pocket which is as deep as the length of the bag. Smaller in the width. Roomy enough for the changing pad and I think you can possibly even fit all your changing needs in there J
*the 2 side pockets are tall, insulated and fit water bottles. They look big enough to fit standard sippie cups as well but I don’t think they will fit the jumbo, super bulky sippies.
*Back Pocket is a zipper pocket that holds the backpack straps. It’s as tall and as wide as the bag and can fit additional items.
*Front Top pocket- hidden magnet closure. Has 2 picture slots on the bottom side of the flap. Inside the pocket there’s 1 zippered pocket, one fabric pocket and one mesh pocket as well as an elastic stretch key FOB
* Bottom front pocket- hidden magnet closure with 2 additional mesh pockets inside.
*Side pockets are insulated with elastic to allow a large enough opening for sippy cups. Covers a standard size water bottle minus 3” (3” of the water bottle sticks out)
* Back pocket is where you’ll find the changing pad with room to spare. The pocket is the same width and height of the bag minus the few inches for the opening at the top.
*see Youtube videos for more details
Interior Pockets
Pocket Information
*Large pocket towards the back with an elastic strip to hold it closed. Velcro at the end of the strip. This allows it to double as a second compartment giving you more room for organization.
*On that large pocket are 2 elastic top mesh pockets
*and towards the front there are 2 elastic top plain nylon pockets
*1 zippered pocket towards the back, I want to say about the size of a CD case.
*Another pocket next to that one, elastic top mesh. Has extra give of fabric for more storage space.
*2 more elastic top mesh pockets.
Mesh pockets are deep

Diaper Bag Spotlight! The Timi and Leslie Charlie Cocoa Brown

So I think I called this chocolate brown in the video... but you know what I mean :)
From the moment I added this item to the site I couldn't wait to get a good look at it. AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!! Keep in mind the pictures don't do the true color justice. I just couldn't capture the true color :( Sorry about that.

A lot of people call us up or email us asking if the Timi and Leslie faux leather looks cheap and overly fake. The answer is no. It also depends on the type of faux leather, for instance, the shinier ones look a little less leather like than the matte fabrics. This cocoa brown? Well, it looks so close to real leather I had to take a whiff to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Same goes for the other Charlies as well.
And all in all, the Timi and Leslie bags are chic, comfortable and stunning! I'm a huge fan!

And I'm sure you know how much I love accessories included with bags... you will LOVE the accessories Timi and Leslie includes in their bags. Aside from a changing pad which I think we all expect from most diaper bags, the Timi and Leslie convertible collection comes with stroller straps, a messenger strap, bottle holder, mess bag, wristlet clutch and a built in key fob.

I love love love this bag! It sits so comfortably on my shoulder and the messenger strap is super comfortable. It doesn't look like it would be so it was a pleasant surprise when I had it on. I LOVE the feel of the fabric. It actually reminds me of the leather I felt on one of the Storksak bags.

 And huge wristlet fan here! I used my turquoise one all weekend! I had enough room for my glasses, ID, credit cards, cash, chap stick, candy, checkbook, pen and some more. The fact that you can clip and unclip is a hug plus because you can clip it onto your bag or hang it off the stroller. It makes for a great evening clutch!

TWO THUMBS UP! Not only for the bag itself but the color. It's one of their newest colors and it is YUMMMMM.... MMMMYYYY!

Now this beauty sits on our display table in the store. A great area to showcase such a beautiful bag.
