Testing the Gigil Luxe (2.0) Changing Backpack

This is a bag which doesn't look like a traditional baby changing bag. It feels like a normal backpack style bag but more stylish! It's unbelievably practical and fits everything you need in and more! I can fit change of clothes, snacks, drinks, nappies and my purse in with ease! I no longer have several bags to carry around, I just use this one bag for everything! The bag looks and feels great quality and the straps stay in place. I normally hate back pack style bags as the straps tend to fall down but this one fits so well.

I would recommend this to a friend / fellow mum because it is so practical as well as stylish. There are 3 main compartments inside with an additional internal zipped compartment. It has a further zipped compartment on the front of the back and a concealed compartment on the back + side pockets. Very practical for all baby changing essentials + personal items, keys, phone, purse etc.

Fantastic changing backpack! The quality of the fabric is really good, it looks premium. It’s a good size, fits everything you need whilst out with baby. Lots of different compartments to keep everything organised. Includes a small changing mat, straps to put on to a push chair. It’s really comfortable to wear, even when it’s full and quite heavy you can barely tell you’re wearing it.

I would recommend the Gigil Luxe (2.0) Changing Bag for a variety of reasons. The bag is spacious with plenty of pockets to keep things separate. I took the bag to hospital when baby was born and was able to get all his clothes in both new-born and 0-3month inside, with all of his changing essentials with loads of space left over. Bag was comfortable to wear on shoulders with supportive straps with the weight evenly distributed.

Stylish and modern changing bag that both mum and dad can use. This looks more like a normal backpack than a changing bag which I love. The magnetic catch on the front makes it much easier to get something in or out of the bag when in a hurry. The size of the bag is very generous without it being huge, and has multiple pockets to keep everything nice and organised inside for nappies, wipes etc.

Really handy when going out for the day. It’s perfect for only needing to take one bag out which holds everything. It’s strong so can hold a lot of items. The different compartments are really handy for keeping everything organised and easy to access. It can easily be attached to the pushchair which helps if I don’t want to carry it on my back or have it under the pushchair.

Having a bag that comes with buggy clips, changing Matt and looks fantastic ticks boxes as I always thing other changing bags are either frumpy looking or made of cheap materials and this bag is far from this. The padded straps give comfort when wearing the bag for a long period of time during a walk or day out and the design is perfect for male or female.

Final thoughts

The Gigil Luxe (2.0) Changing Backpack is multifunctional and spacious. With two interior insulated pockets, four interior compartments and four external pockets, it provides lots of space for all the essentials for you and your baby when out and about. Whilst still having space for the additional accessory of a changing mat.

The bag itself is water resistant, so good for the them times when you get caught in the rain, and also has padded adjustable straps, providing comfort when wearing, even when full. But it also comes with pram/buggy clips allowing you to attach it to your pram handle, giving you options.

Gigil's Luxe (2.0) is a stylish changing bag made with premium materials, making it long lasting, whilst complimenting your wardrobe and being ideal for mum and dad.
