The PacaPod Saunton changing bag- a review

Friday, 25 May 2018  |  Admin


I love a good changing bag. Heck, I love a good bag. One of my all time favourite bags is my Michael Kors Hamilton bag in Tan. I just love it which is a good job as it cost me an arm and a leg! (Well, it cost my hubby..)

A staple item for a mummy, is The Changing Bag. But what makes the ideal bag? 

  • It needs to be big, but not too big that it becomes heavy. 
  • It needs to be affordable.
  • This bag will be getting slung into the car, hung from your pram, dumped on the floor in the toilet, so it MUST be strong and durable.
  • Ideally, it will come with a changing mat inside. You’ll learn that not all establishments cater for babies. (One day maybe..)
  • If it’s being used by a partner too, it needs to be a bag they’re willing to use, not too feminine, you know?
  • Obviously, It needs to look good, chances are you won’t have multiple changing bags so this bag needs to work with your usual clothing attire.

We ask a lot of a changing bag.

When you become a mummy, certain things need to step aside, a designer bag is usually one of these. Until now. 

The Saunton Pacapod

I’ve just discovered the luxury brand, Pacapod, I wish I’d known about these bags when I had my first child in 2010. 

Pacapod’s are a 3 in 1 bag, a full travel system. Within the bag are 2 Pods; hence the name, ‘Pacapod’: There’s a Changer Pod (to hold nappies,wipes etc) and a thermal Feeder Pod (perfect for holding your bottles), these both fit within your bag but can also be hung from the pram (clips are included). Ideal if you’re making a quick stop to the shop or if you’re taking baby on a walk and only need the minimal. There’s also a tiny pod hanging on the outside of the bag, suitable for a dummy (or your lippy even!) and of course, it comes with the necessary changing mat. 

Lastly, it looks like a handbag. That got to be a bonus, right!? Visually, it looks similar to my MK! Result. 

What I like about this bag are the handles, you can carry it across your chest like a messenger bag or tote, by the small handles or as a backpack giving you the full freedom of your arms - if you’ve got a little toddler, you definitely need free arms! 

The cost of the bag comes in at £84.00 on our website, which is a great price considering all you get.

We’ve got multiple Pacapods online. ( The PacaPod Picos Pack Bag in Charcoal won my top spot for bags for daddy’s!-  


Check them out, I promise you won’t be disappointed. I’m certainly not!
