the Rebel Messenger bag by Skidaddle
Are you tired of carrying your child’s diabetes supplies in an ugly and poorly made bag? Well, look no further! Skidaddle Bags has taken the medical supply bag to a whole new level! Skidaddle’s designer diabetes bags allow you to express your love of fashion and make your life with diabetes a little more colorful. Chris loves the design of this bag! Now that he is older, the only bags I can buy him have to be plain old boring black because the boys bags out there are too “kiddish” so he says… LOL. The bag we received is black, gray and covered in skulls! They have many styles to choose from in a variety of sizes.
I was able to try out their Rebel bag for boys. Great product! The bag was extremely well made! There have been so many times that I have spent upwards of $40 or $50 just to find that the bag was not durable at all and only lasted a few weeks. I think this bag will last for years! It is made of a durable denier polyester. It has an adjustable slider strap so it is very easy to wear comfortably either over your shoulder or across your body.
While I loved this bag, I did find it to be a bit too big, so in the future I will try one of their smaller bags. It’s dimensions are 12" x 9" x 3". However, I think it would be a great bag for outings!! It has three external pockets and four internal pockets, three of which are netted. One of the external pockets is a larger zippered compartment. Internally, there are six elastic bands to help keep your medical supplies secure. The side pouch has all of the little pockets needed to organize your supplies. Plenty of room for a meter, lancer, strips, glucose tabs, insulin, extra pump supplies, batteries and room for even more! The large back pouch is big enough for snacks, juice boxes, toys, your wallet, heck, you can even fit a small laptop or iPad in there!
Now, about the price. I know $139 sounds a bit high and a few people have discussed that on the board in the past, but I would honestly pay that for this bag! I have put out so much money trying bags only to find that I they lasted a month or two and then I had to buy a new one. So in my mind, I’m thinking this will last much longer and save money in the long run.
I encourage you all to check them out! Visit their Website or Facebook page and "like" them for more information.
Thank you to Skidaddle for providing the samples for this review.
