Confort is its middle name.

While we are on the subject of neat gadgets when I saw the press release for this diaper bag I was really intrigued. Style wise its really unisex and dad's will appreciate the urban messenger bag styling. To be honest with you its just as functional as a diaper bag as it is as a laptop bag. Let me introduce you to the Slide Tote Bag!

Lets get to the point though the most obvious difference between this bag and your standard tote bag is its really unusual shoulder strap. All of the bags in the Slide line offer a super wide fabric shoulder strap which drapes over your shoulder to distribute the weight of the bag. Those of you that have used a ring sling or a wrap to carry your baby will already be familiar on how draping fabric widely over your shoulders helps distribute the weight evenly across your back virtually alleviating shoulder strain. With the Slide bag you can decide how much fabric you would like to drape by adjusting the sliding shoulder strap or even use it as a traditional bag by sliding the strap to the top of your shoulder. Personally I really like having the strap about at my collar bone with the fabric draped just around the top of my shoulder, the exact same way I would wear a ring sling.

The bag itself offers tons of storage options a removable divider, two very generously sized bottle holders on the side that will comfortably hold a baby bottle or even easily hold an adult sized drinking bottle or in my case a soda bottle.. heh. I gave the bag my ultimate bag test as I'm sure you guys know by now I am a nursing student and I have ridiculously heavy text books to carry with me to class not to mention my laptop so its not uncommon for me to be toting around what seems like more than I weigh in books every week. This causes me an immense amount of shoulder pain but I find that backpacks just don't do it for me as I like to keep things organized. The Slide Tote Bag easily holds everything I need to take with me, my laptop, something to drink, and that unique shoulder strap... its heaven. Classically a standard strap on a messenger bag will actually cause my arm to fall asleep if I have to carry my books too far if that tells you how heavy my book load is, this does not happen at all with the Slide's strap.

Diapers, books, your laptop, a gym bag, whatever you can think up the Slide Tote Bag can handle this is one bag that everyone in the family will fight over and will have a life far after the diaper stage is over.

Love your diaper bag but want to try out the Slide's special shoulder strap? Well that can be arranged as well. The Urban Sherpa Strap is sold separately as well!

I remember seeing something in a magazine about these cool bags but I could never their name. What would I do without you? The Slide Tote looks great. I also like the Messenger Bag in black. Great giveaway!

I like the gondola bag in black, but will have to buy the strap if by some strange chance I do not win. ;)
I have an awesome messenger bag that I could use for a diaper bag, but the strap was killing me, so this strap is a great idea!

Its a toss up between the Slid Bag and the Messenger! This looks like it would be awesome as a diaper bag OR a school bag for me! I'm nervous about starting back to college after all these years, and this would be a great thing to look forward to carrying to school and more ergonomic for all those heavy text books!!!
