Rowdy Products Croc Bowler Bag: Practical and stylish

Who says your style has to change when you have a baby? Not Rowdy Products, who is making mom-friendly diaper bags that combine style and performance. Their look is a little edgy and urban-girly but these bags are made to perform. I checked out their Croc Bowler and found it quite up to the challenge of a busy day out with kids.

At first glance the Croc Bowler by Rowdy Products looks like a petite piece of vintage luggage. The deep red mock croc is luxe-y looking and the black tassels and trim give it a polished look. The bag is a satchel style and can be carried by short handles or worn messenger style with the addition of an included adjustable, removable strap. The bag exterior is made from a low maintenance man-made material that defies rain or baby mess. Metal feet on the underside ensure that it stands alone and minimizes scuffs to the bottom of the bag.

This satchel is quite roomy – large enough to hold a change ofclothes, diapers, wipes, a baby’s bottle and some water for you, aswell as a few toys and extra items. I even got a small blanket in therewith all that. It’s eminently stuffable yet manages not to make youlook like you are emigrating to the mommyland with your baby suitcase.This is a welcome thing for petite moms who are often overwhelmed bylarger diaper bags. Fans of pockets will dig this bag, and dig lesswhen using it. Inside the bag are three appropriately sized meshpockets to organize your cell, diapers and wipes. A zipped pocketsecures valuables. There is a clip for your keys and an insulatedbottle holder (sized to hold a variety of bottle styles) and a slimwaterproof changing pad is also included. Side pockets on the outsidekeep your binkies, breath mints and other essentials close at hand.There is also a zippered compartment on the back of the outside of thebag (with a cute tassel on the zip pull).

The niftiest compartment on the bag however, is not exactly acompartment at all. Lift the front outer flap and you find there is aremovable clutch purse attached to the bag. This is the perfect placeto put all your essential mommy stuff, so you do not have to carry thewhole bag with you every time you run a quick errand. The clutch snaps& clips securely onto the bag and the bag looks great whether youhave the clutch attached or not. Perhaps the most mommy-friendly aspectof these bags is that the entire lining of the bag is waterproof. Andto make it easy to clean, the lining is also completely removeable asthere is an inner lining underneath. With the baby-bag lining removed,the Rowdy Products Croc Bowler easily transitions into your work or gym bag.

As much as I love my luxury leather diaper bags, it’s really nice tohave a bag that does not need to be pampered almost as much as mychild. The Rowdy Products Croc Bowler manages to look chicwhile performing like a work horse. It’s sturdy and well constructedand sure to stand up to the abuse of life in and out of the car, thepark, etc. There will be no need for tears when the baby spits up onit, because it will still look great.
