O Yikes! Review And Giveaway

I have gone through no less than four diaper bags with my son. They're either too big, too small, or there just isn't enough organization. I can't tell you how many times I've had to search for my wallet or a diaper that ends up being squished into a tiny ball somewhere in the bottom corner of the bag.

Photobucket

I thought I'd never find a bag that would meet my needs, but O Yikes! introduced me to their bags. They sent me the 24.7 Messenger Bag in Blueberry Keylime.
Photobucket
O Yikes! was created by a parent who realized that all diaper bags have some sort of shortcoming. They designed their bags with active people in mind. This company wanted a durable bag with tons of organizational options that also looks stylish.

The 24.7 Messenger Bag includes:
-two large main compartments and six internal pockets
-brushed aluminum key ring
-long shoulder strap with non-slip padding
-exterior bottle holder with a drawstring closure
-external accessory holder
-exterior pop out zipped space
-large exterior pocket with magnetic closure
-Measurements:
Back compartment 12"h x 15"w x 4"d
Front compartment 8"h x 10"w x 2"d
Internal measurement 11.75"h x 14.75"w x 3.75"d
-insulated cylinder case
-accessory case
-changing pad

Did you see that list? You can also click here for pictures of all of those features. They thought of EVERYTHING when it came to this bag. The bag is small enough that I can use it daily, but it also has so many compartments that I can use it for weekend trips!

The Messenger bag is available in 4 fantastic colors that includes Frosted Titanium so even the "manliest" of men will be proud to carry it. I'm using it for a diaper bag for now, but this bag can be used for so much more.

This would make an amazing carry on bag for traveling. With so many compartments and pockets, you could fit everything that you need. The possibilities are endless. If I still worked, I would carry this bag with me. I could pack everything from my lunch to an extra pair of shoes in there. They even offer a 9.2.5 instead of the 24.7 that includes a laptop sleeve that matches the bag!

Now that I'm going to have a baby and a toddler, I need all of this extra organizational space. This bag can carry clothes, food, diapers, and toys for both children. I even get my own pockets for wallets and phones!

I love this hidden pouch. With my other diaper bags, I miss pretty much every call because I can't find my phone. Now, all I have to do is flip open the flap and it is in the top pocket.
Photobucket

Whoever thought about this key ring is a genius! I am always having to put my diaper bag on the hood of my car and taking everything out to find my keys. It takes seconds to get to my keys with this ring at the top!
Photobucket

What about those balled up diapers I was telling you about? Not anymore! This zipped outside compartment contains a mesh pocket for diaper rash ointment, the changing pad that matches the bag, and enough room for me to put 6(or more) diapers.
Photobucket

I will never own another diaper bag. I'm even thinking about getting the Slingback bag to have when the kids get older and I can use a smaller bag. Later, I could use both bags for travel cases or gym bags!
