The Messenger II bag is a practical, sporty and gender-neutral bag for on-the-go mums and dads.

First Impressions

The hip and sporty image of this bag runs a lot deeper than the aesthetics; the bag is lightweight, easy to grab and carry, and hides a nice amount of storage for your little one’s mountain of products.

When it comes to style, the bag comes in grey, navy and black – the pinstriped designs giving off a smart and fashionable vibe that both parents can appreciate.

The padded shoulder strap will stop the bag from chafing your shoulder, so waiting in line on boiling hot day at Thorpe Park can be a little less hellish for dads. The Messenger II is also equipped for all occasions; the padded changing pad and large compartments making it ideal for all those unplanned disasters.


The durable polyester fabric means that you can really rely on this bag and not worry about stuffing it silly. It has a large meshed compartment for all baby’s needs, an additional compartment just for dad and 3 Velcro-sealed pockets to safely secure all the other bits and bobs you need to carry around.

Diaper Dude really have optimised support for the wearer with the Messenger II; the shoulder strap and breathable mesh padding allow for both comfort and durability, so the bag wont weigh you down too much or become irritating over time – let’s face it, the last thing you need is more weight on your shoulders.

The insulated bottle holder is a great touch; keeping your bottles warm can mean the difference between smiles and tantrums. As with most modern bags, the Messenger II also comes with a padded changing pad, which means that you can just whip it out and change baby there and then.

Whether it’s the nappies or cream, new dads are certain to forget something on their early trips out with the baby, so a really simple but clever addition is the dad checklist screen on the Velcro flap, highlighting that this a product all about making the transition into fatherhood easier.

FQ Verdict

If you’re searching for a bag that offers practicality, ease of access, and a host of nifty features, then the Messenger II is the bag for you!
