Thank you so much to Mama Jenna Johnson who was so kind to review the Chertsey Breast Pump Backpack Idaho Jones for us! Full Disclaimer, she did receive this product for free, but was not paid or asked to review this bag in any particular way.
First Impressions: I think the packaging is very nice. I like the fact that it came with a duster bag for when you are storing the bag. The quality is really well made. The gold hardware looks very high end and chic. The black fabric on the exterior is nice because it wipes clean easily, and does not show a lot of dirt. The interior is very spacious, and the front pocket is lined with a velvety fabric, which was very luxurious feeling.
What I liked:
I really liked the overall design. I think it is functional, yet fashionable. For me, being a teacher, I loved the backpack design because it made it easy to tote to and from work. I also really like the fact that both my medela instyle pump and bottle cooler both fit in the bottom portion, leaving the top portion of the bag virtually empty. This would be great if you needed to throw some items in for the baby for a diaper bag/pump bag combo. I love all the pockets the bag has. There was plenty of space to store the tubing, flanges, and other items so they were orderly and not just thrown in the bag. The bag itself is also lightweight, so it is not very heavy even when it is full of all my pumping supplies.
What I didn’t like:
The pros of this bag definitely outweigh the cons. However, I did wish it was just a couple inches wider. I mentioned both my pump and cooler did fit in the bottom portion, however, I did have to squeeze them both in. If it was just a couple inches wider, they would have fit perfectly. I think if you use a larger pump style, the cooler would have to be placed in the top portion. Other than that, I thought it was a great product, and would recommend it.
