If you or your partner enjoys a more masculine aesthetic, you’re in luck: you’re not doomed to carry around a diaper bag filled with flowery details. Many brands now make modern, unisex diaper bags that are not only well-equipped for parents to fulfill diapering duties, but stylish and fun to carry. Here they are — the best diaper bags in 2020 for dads — or for parents and partners of all flavors.
Little Unicorn diaper bags are beautiful, affordable and functional. They make a few models marketed to men… but honestly, the rugged look would look great on anyone.
Paperclip Diaper Bags, starting at $109
The Paperclips are our new favorite daddy bags (we first reviewed them at the 2016 baby show). The concept is that they are a self-contained changing station because soooooo few men’s restrooms have changing tables.
These bags are gorgeous. Moms love them too… AND they’re perfect for laptops and other things when the diaper years are over.
Ju-Ju-Be Helix ~$90
A beautiful, simple diaper bag for dads (or any parent) ~ this bag is elegant yet masculine.
The Eddie Bauer diaper backpack is functional and spacious. It’s packed with features, including 11 practical pockets (2 interior pockets that insulated to keep bottles and food fresh), an easy pop-open removable wipe case, and a changing pad. Dad can choose between 3 carrying options: hold with the top handle, use as a backpack with the padded shoulder straps, or attach to the stroller with the stroller loops. Plus, it’s only $49 — not too shabby for a sturdy, hybrid bag.
Skip Hop unisex bag ~$47
Yep, Skip Hop also makes diaper bags for our papas, and they’re pretty cool! This crossbody is perfect for minimalist dads or for smaller outings. It boasts a cool sporty-meets-tech look, and it’s compact and lightweight. It features 8 pockets, two insulated side bottle pockets, and a main pocket with an extra-wide opening. We love the tonal camo print, which is so so easy to wipe clean.
Product of the North Westin Backpack ~$119 (out of stock)
We love love love this backpack from Product of the North. It has everything you need: a top carry handle, adjustable shoulder straps, lots of pockets, and even a laptop compartment. The roll-down top with magnetic straps adds a cool factor to this already-stylish backpack. It comes with a changing pad. It’s one of our favorite diaper bags for dad.
