This bag is SO spacious! The quality overall is amazing. I think the only thing that I wish it had were bigger pockets for bottles. I use comotomo bottles that are pretty wide and they unfortunately can’t fit in the insulated bottle pockets. But I’m still totally rating 5 stars anyway because overall, the bag is amazing. I don’t mind putting bottles in the bigger pockets in the main compartment of the bag because there is SO MUCH room. Love it!!
I do love this bag, which is unfortunate. The pockets on the inside, mainly a specific 1 or 2 (the ones up high on the back wall of the bag but inside) are ripping again. This is a replacement bag which I’m grateful they sent a replacement for the first one ripping this way but the fact that it’s happening again means the bags pockets aren’t sewn together well. In one pocket I put my chapstick and gum. The other pocket is used for a baby spoon and a food pouch or pacifiers. So these pockets aren’t being used by heavy or large items, im bit overstuffing or overusing them, this is why it’s frustrating. There are other pockets where I see the same thing happening but it’s like the thread is just stretching, not ripping yet. BUT the positives.. other than the inside pockets... the bag is well made. It has all the pockets you need, and rings to hook it to your stroller. It’s definitely a larger bag and it’s leather so it isn’t super light weight but to me that’s fine because I like the look. Another thing to keep in mind is if someone is wearing it or if you’re holding it with one hand and trying to zip it closed, it’s hard and nearly impossible to zip it shut with one hand because the zipper goes up around and down instead of straight across. You learn to make it work- we barely zip it anyways. Anyways- overall I do still recommend this bag but I’m still super frustrated about the tearing pockets.
I was being hounded by social media ads for this type of bag so I decided to reach out to this company and ask how they are different since they say "Original Citi Explorer." I got a response immediately and they were so kind. They explained the differences and I knew there had to be a reason for the price difference. I'm happy to support a Mom who designed this bag and has direct impact over the improvement of the design and is producing the bags versus just buying them wholesale from a random factory. The bag is really amazing and well worth the extra money to get the original. Their quality is top notch and I'm really happy with the look and how much it holds. Based on their customer service and quality, I will be recommending CC to all of my pregnant friends.
I have been very satisfied with the product and the customer service is amazing! I receive compliments all the time on how cute and stylish my bag is and am always recommending you company.

I purchased the very first version of this years ago and decided I had to have the new version. WOW!! Just WOW! My other one held up well but the quality and the upgrades on this one are so worth the price. The inside fabric is super thick so I can pack the pockets so full without a problem. I like that the front pocket is all insulated now. Before it was just the bottle pockets but now I can put things outside of the bottle pockets and they will stay cold in that pocket. I tried it with string cheese the other day and it worked perfectly. Kudos Citi Collective team, you're doing a great job!
