Ellison Carryall Diaper Bag Review (E.C. Knox)

Ellison Carryall Diaper Bag
What It Is

Fashion and function collide with the Ellison Carryall Diaper Bag. Made of navy blue ballistic nylon, this bag can be worn as a shoulder bag, messenger bag, or backpack thanks to the adjustable strap. While the exterior is a solid color, the interior's liquid resistant liner features the signature E.C. Knox paisley print. That print extends to the bag's fold-out, removable changing pad and separate dust bag.

You get two mesh pockets by the changing pad, a side pocket for a bottle, and easy access to wipes through the other side pocket that has a magnetic closure to keep wipes from drying out. The interior of the bag features two bottle pockets, two mesh pockets, and two slip pockets. An included and attached flashlight makes it easy for you to find things in the bag. Stroller straps are also included.

But when you want to transition this bag to a work bag, there's a padded zippered laptop pocket on the back with three interior slip pockets. You can also unzip and remove the interior paisley print liner since you'll no longer need those bottle pockets, and you have a solid black interior with two mesh pockets and a zippered pocket.

There are two other styles of the Carryall Bag: The Coastal (white/gold) and The Frenchie (gray/blue/red).

Why Is It Useful?

This bag has a great look for dad, and it's built to transition from diaper bag into a work bag, giving it functionality past the diaper years. But when dads are in the throes of being on the go with baby, they'll find the built-in changing pad and wipes pocket very convenient features, and the ability to wear the bag in different ways keeps their hands free to tend to baby.

Who It’s For

The Ellison Carryall is for stylish on-the-go dads, though we're sure moms wouldn't mind carrying it.

What To Be Aware Of

It was not clear how to transition this bag from shoulder/messenger bag to backpack. But if you attach one end of the strap to a lower D-ring on the bag, thread the strap through the top center D-ring, and attach the other end to the other lower D-ring, you'll have yourself a backpack.

It was kind of a tight fit for a 13-inch laptop inside the laptop pocket.
