Kalencom Weekender Bag Review and Giveaway!!!


 Kalencom | Home
It is my belief that you can never have too many travel bags. I like them to be carry on size, functional, practical, attractive and eco friendly is preferable. Quality is important too, you want something that will really last! I found all of this in my new Kalencom Weekender Bag!

Kalencom is a company that offers several eco-friendly and practical items for moms in a cute and fashionable form. Their diaper bags are AZO and phthlalate free. High quality product that takes your and the earth's health to heart. They offer several different diaper bag options from small clutches to large weekend bags like mine. Seriously, they are some of the cutest diaper bags I have come across and they still offer me everything I need to keep my baby stuff organized. Along with diaper bags they also offer beautiful organic layettes and fun parenting accessories such as seat belt snoozers and pacifier pods.

Now to get to this awesome bag! Here are some of the weekender bag features:


• Zippered top opens to roomy interior
• Inside lined with mesh storage pockets
Week-ender Bag
• Comfortable, shoulder length straps
• 2 outside pockets
• Decorative buckle, trim and stitching
• Matching insulated bottle bag
• Coordinating zippered pouch
• Large fold-out padded changing pad
• Eco-friendly -- Kalencom Diaper bags
are AZO-free and utilize no Phthalates
Dimensions: 17.5" L x 8" W x 13” H


 I really appreciate this bags versatility. It is easy to organize for use as a diaper bag with a thermal bottle holder and changing pad, but still has plenty of room for all your travel needs. It doesn't look like a diaper bag, which I also appreciate, so it has a long lifespan.



It is very spacious which is important with any diaper bag, but especially one you are planning to travel with. There is plenty of room in here for me to pack all my extra baby items and enough clothes for a few days. I like that there are so many pockets in the main compartment (hard to see in the picture) and there is a spacious outer pocket in the back as well.

Overall, I am extremely impressed with my Kalencom Week-Ender Bag. It is eco-friendly, fashionably classic, versatile and practical all wrapped into one. That isn't easy to come buy when you're looking at bags! I think these bags are a great investment for any mom looking to find a long term travel bag.
