My bag of choice when I’m out and about with Little Mr is the Pink Lining Wanderlust Rucksack in Wise Owl design. When we go out I like to make sure I have everything with me that I might need for our time out of the house and the rucksack is the ideal size to ensure I have all the essentials to hand.
The Pink Lining Wanderlust Rucksack has a beautiful owl print all over the bag with grey patches, contrasting red zips and the famous pink lining inside.
for the love of compartments
The rucksack has 3 compartments each with pockets and mesh areas to keep all your bits and bobs in one place. I love how each section has it’s own purpose.
The front compartment is insulated so is ideal for keeping drinks and snacks cool (or warm). There is a zipped pocket inside so you can store away anything you don’t want easy access too.
The second compartment is where we keep all Little Mr’s nappies, nappy bags, cream and antibacterial hand gel. This section opens up flat so you can easily access all the bits you need when changing nappies and I love that you also get a ‘yummy mummy’ padded changing mat with the bag too. Always handy for being out and about and not having anywhere suitable to change the little ones. There’s also a free wet zipped bag for storing wet wipes or nappies and I’ve used that as a grab-and-go nappy bag for quick nappy changes.
The third compartment is essentially the back of the rucksack with handy pockets such as a pen holder, a phone pocket and a small pocket ideal for keeping all of Mama’s essentials to hand. I am useless with my keys. I always tend to pop them back into the bag and then forget which section I’ve left them in. If you attach your keys to the key fob, they’re always on hand for when you need them. I tend to keep a change of clothes for Little Mr in this section along with a fruit pouch or two and his cutlery. It’s a section I don’t really want little hands in so we keep this section out of bounds for Little Mr.
I love the handy exterior side bottle pockets, ideal for storing drink bottles in for easy access when you’re out and about. The top of the pockets are elasticated so grips the bottles to keep them safe.
attach and go
The Pink Lining Wanderlust Rucksack can be attached to a pushchair using the clips above the shoulder straps. This helps to secure the rucksack onto a pushchair and these are really strong and won’t unclip without you pressing the clips to release them. The bag has adjustable straps should you want to wear the rucksack when out, I tend to do this as we pack far too much stuff in our bag and it ends up being too heavy for the pushchair.
The rucksack is wipe clean only but as the main fabric is coated it’s repels a lot of dirt which is fantastic on days out with my family.
The Pink Lining Wanderlust Rucksack, Wise Owls is available to buy online at £89.00.
would we recommend?
Most definitely. I’ve been a fan of Pink Lining bags ever since we conceived with Little Mr and I’ve been keeping an eye on the range of prints that have been coming out over the last couple of years and I love them. The Wanderlust rucksack is both stylish and practical and hubby doesn’t mind carrying it as it’s not overly girly. A winner in our eyes and will continue to be used on our days out for years to come.
