Review: Skip Hop Grab & Go Stroller Saddlebag

*Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

When my kids were little, we were a city-dwelling family and traveled almost everywhere on foot, pushing a stroller. And one of the things that I most distinctly remember from those days is trying to get my bulky diaper bag to stay put on the stroller handles.  Things were fine as long as the stroller basket was empty, but when I had groceries or other items to transport, the diaper bag got evicted from the basket and was my issue to deal with.  Life would have been so much easier if I'd had this great new product from Skip Hop- the Grab & Go Stroller Saddlebag. Here's a bit about it, from the Skip Hop website:

The perfect stroller carryall! 
Our saddlebag is the perfect carryall to streamline your stroller with extra storage. This handy carrier conveniently stows every thing from groceries to on-the- go essentials. The insulated interior keeps food cold after super market trips. The inside pockets are ideal for toting bottles and snacks. Built for busy parents, our saddlebag makes running errands hassle-free.

I really love this saddlebag. Like everything that I've ever bought or reviewed from Skip Hop, it's really well made. The fabric is thick and I can tell that it would be really durable as well as easy to wipe off when needed. I love the exterior mesh pocket that allows for easy access to things like keys or phones, without having to dig through the main part of the bag. The interior part of the bag is much roomier than it first appears and it has a great capacity.  My favorite feature though, is that this bag is designed to attach to the side of the stroller, not the back.  This means it wont be in the way of whatever adult is pushing the stroller and also wouldn't block access to the stroller's basket.  The bag is universal and has nice, thick straps for easy attachment to the stroller.

The Skip Hop Grab & Go Stroller Saddlebag would make a great gift for the new or not-so-new parent in your life.  I love it!
