PacaPod Portland Changing Bag, Black

Product information

The stylish exterior of this bag will appeal to both mums and dads and hidden expansion panels with expandable side zips increase capacity for those extra busy days, while the adjustable shoulder strap allows you to juggle baby and tots and keep hands-free.

Inside the rear cargo section of the bag you’ll find all the accessories you need, including two pods to store baby and toddler feeding and changing items and keep the two hygienically apart. The detachable pods can be quickly removed from the main bag, attached to the pram handle, used on their own or dropped off at nursery containing lunch or spare clothes - leaving plenty of space for a laptop or paperwork.

In addition to the pods, this bag also comes with; a padded changing mat, pram clips, insulated bottle cover and separate clothes pouch.

Q & As

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this bag This is a really great changing bag. Couple of reasons that this doesn't score 5 stars for me: 1) Changing mat is wipe clean only 2) It is very expensive 3) The fastening on the pod handles are poor the clip comes undone so falls off whatever you attach it to. Not a major problem but at this price they should have thought of everything 14 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Clever and good value but a bit bulky. I bought this based on needing a bag my husband would use. He loves it and happily carrys it around. It's clever and has lots of useful compartments and from a value perspective -it's quite good. It's been used daily for over a year and stood up well to baby pressures! My personal struggle with it is the shape and how its quite bulky to carry, I'm a single shoulder bag carrier! And it's not an easy shoulder bag for me. My husband carrys it with the strap across his body and it works much better. 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE must have changing bag! Love it! I have OCD for organisation so this bag was a must for me! Plenty of pockets and pouches for everything you need.. plus my other half doesn't mind taking it out as it looks "manly". Definitely worth investing in.. grab it while you can though... it seems to come in and out of stock! 29 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not best design The quality of the bag is good and it looks great. The beige pacapod compartment (which you can buy separately is amazing) but when used all together the bag gets very wide at the base as the pods push ino the bag and the contents inside get squished up. The top of the bag remains narrow with small opening zip which means it's a real hassle to find anything even with all the little compartments/zips/pouches etc. also means when attached to the buggy it bangs your knees when walking so very comfortable. 14 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fantastic bag until it broke I changed to this bag when my daughter had just started weaning as I wanted a bag that would keep the feeding and changing things separately. This bag has done the job perfectly. Using the pods took a bit of getting used to at first but since then it has been brilliant. It has loads of room although I find the extending zip a bit superfluous as if you want to keep anything in the bag other than the feeding and changing pods (ie a change of clothes) then you will need to have the zip open which means mine is open all the time. However, I have only had the bag 5 months and the stitching attaching the strap to the bag has completely come away on one side (and this happened when I was on a day trip in London so very inconvenient). I have not over filled the bag and I would expect a bag of this quality to last significantly longer than 5 months! John Lewis (as ever) have been excellent and immediately given me a refund because the bag is currently out of stock. That said, I am going to buy the same bag again in the hope that my issue was just an anomaly as other than that it has been brilliant. 10 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed with product This bag seemed to provide everything I was looking for from a changing bag. I have found the bag useful and the the designer thought of everything. However for an expensive bag I have found the quality to be disappointing. After 9 months the zip around the compartment where the smaller pods are kept has come apart and the tag of the zips on the feed pod have both broken off. I am not sure how much more use I will get out of it and I would have expected to use this product longer than 9 months many other mothers have bought less expensive changing bags and are still getting use out of them until there little ones are out of nappies which is what I would expect from a bag of this price. 19 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful and versatile bag This is a fantastic bag and the designer has thought of everything. The changing and feeder pods are great for separating 'dirty' changing items and clean feeding items particularly for a fussy soul like me. The main pocket is large especially when you extend the size of the bag. Really useful front pockets for keys, phone, purse etc. The changing pod also has rucksack straps so can be used as a little rucksack too. Looks stylish and can happily be used as a bag on it's own. Versatile and unisex as even my husband is happy with the bag. 21 March 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect Perfect changing back. Great size and looks fab. Husband wanted something he was comfortable carrying too (so not too girly), but I didn't want anything too plain so this was perfect for us. Plenty of room for everything you will need, without going over the top as the bag keeps everything organised. Just a shame it's so expensive! 01 March 2013
