The Kerikit Scotty is a remarkably well-designed bag that exudes luxury, whilst being highly functional.

First Impressions

With a striking appearance, the Kerikit Scotty sets the stakes high in the ‘man bag’ looks department. A messenger bag made from soft Italian milled leather in a chocolate brown with a salt and pepper pony skin flap, there is no doubt about its quality.

Stylistically it hits all the right buttons, but it is also built to endure – an important consideration as bags come under so much wear and tear in daily use, particularly when there’s kids about.


The Scotty isn’t just about appearance though, beneath the handsome exterior lies a clever Internal Removable Organiser (IRO) which makes it highly adaptable. The IRO has multiple pockets and a central zip and is attached with press-studs to sit securely within the bag to give designated sections for bottles, nappies etc. However, it can then be removed to give a large single space, allowing it to be used as an overnight bag or later a work bag.

A really clever aspect to the design also comes with the extras, so the wipe-clean baby changing mat can also be used as a laptop sleeve and the food bag can double as a handy place for any grooming essentials. A waterproof pocket at the bottom of the bag is a useful spot to put used nappies, but can be equally useful for wet umbrellas which shows great forward thinking. All of this versatility gives the Scotty a real ability to be used well beyond the years of babyhood, making it a great investment.

The shoulder strap is wide enough to be comfortable, which is important with a bag that could get relatively heavy once full of baby change – or later business and personal – bits and bobs. The zip works two ways, meaning it can be worn on either shoulder and easily accessed, which can be particularly useful when trying to reach a dummy and balance a crying baby on your hip.

Finally, large feet provide protection for your bag when setting it down, making it less likely to become scuffed and damaged.

FQ Verdict

With a strong fashionable appearance and lots of clever inclusions, the amount of thought that has gone into the design of the Kerikit Scotty really shows in the diverse number of ways it can be used, making it a highly desirable bag for any dad.
