Ease of Use: 8/10
As we’ve already established, I love wet bags. But what do I love more than using wet bags for diapers? Using them for everything else! This BambooDrive small wet bag is perfect for storing cloth wipes when on the go, but it really shines as a tool to organize and simplify your life.
The BambooDrive small wet bag isn’t large enough to store a diaper but can comfortably hold a handful of wipes or a million other small items (keep reading). At first I was a little disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to use this wet bag to store diapers but then I realized that was really a plus- this wet bag will hold up a lot longer because you likely won’t need to wash it every time you use it. You should be able to use this wet bag to organize everything for years. And because you won’t be used to using this wet bag for diapers, you’ll easily find uses for it well past the baby years.
This small BambooDrive wet bag feels a little flimsier than their medium wet bag, probably because it doesn’t have dual pockets and then isn’t as thick. Yet, even though this bag doesn’t feel as sturdy as their others, I’m not worried that it will be break with what I’m using it for. I would expect this wet bag to be able to bounce around your purse, diaper bag, or car for years and years before wearing out. Like the medium wet bag, the zipper isn’t the best quality but I’m not really concerned about it breaking on me.
This is an awkward sized wet bag- it’s perfect for small items or organizing your purse but isn’t large enough to hold a diaper (clean or dirty). And while I like to use mine to organize my chargers, headphones, etc for work, it’s almost too large for that as there is a lot of extra room. I just tested this out and you can fit 6-12 large cloth wipes, 6 reusable breast pads, or 3-4 mama cloth pads in here. It all depends on how stuffed you want this wet bag to be, but you can stuff it pretty full.
Ease of Use:
The BambooDrive small wet bag is super easy to use- it’s simply one compartment that zips open/closed and a hanging loop strap (with a snap) to hang this on stroller handles etc. I don’t think we need to spend a ton of time on how to use this product as it’s pretty self explanatory. I will give a couple of suggested uses: mama cloth, breast pad storage, wipes container, snack bag, swim cap/goggles storage, purse organizer, diaper bag organizer, first aid kit bag, and my personal favorite, road trip entertainment bag.
Whenever we take a long road trip (so multiple times a year), I pack a couple of small wet bags full of little toys for my toddler to unpack. Whenever he gets fussy, I hand him a new (unzipped) wet bag and he pulls all the toys/snacks out and plays with them one by one. Then he plays with the bag. This BambooDrive small wet bag is the perfect size for this use. It’s square, which makes it easy to fit a small board book into, and it holds a generous amount of toys without having a lot of extra fabric flopping around. I’ve been stuffing this bag with a small book (either board or fabric), a teether, a small dollar store toy or learning toy, and a soft rattle/animal. When my kiddo gets a little older I will replace the teether and soft animal with a smaller notebook and some crayons. I absolutely love this BambooDrive small wet bag for road trips/going out to eat.
At $3.99 each this is the most affordable small wet bag I’ve come across. The Smart Bottoms mini wet bag is similar in the amount it holds but is more rectangular in size which can be awkward and it is also more than double the price. The BambooDrive small wet bag is definitely a great buy- especially if you need a couple to organize/pack. And at $3.99, if you’re on the fence about whether this would be a useful size, you won’t break the bank by trying one out.
The feather print on this wet bag is cute and fairly gender neutral. The only problem I have with the prints offered by BambooDrive in this small wet bag is that there’s only one print available right now! I would love to buy a few more of these to really organize the small things in my diaper bag or to have multiples on road trips but I want to be able to tell them apart. I want to be somewhat smart about my organization (oh, that’s right, I packed animal crackers in the animal print). I would definitely like to see more prints in this small wet bag in the future.
The BambooDrive small wet bag is a useful size and comes at a great price. I wish there were more prints but hopefully if the demand for this bag is steady, they will come out with some new prints. Bottom Line: Yes, I would buy this again. As soon as there are some more print options available, I will be buying more. We love this small wet bag for organizing toys, my work purse, and for storing cloth wipes. I was pleasantly surprised, and I’m sure you will be too, by how much use this bag will get.
