In those years B.C. (before children), parents could leave the house with just a few everyday carry essentials. Keys. Wallet. Phone. Sunglasses. Now, the list of stuff they need bring along on even the most casual days is much, much longer — and definitely can’t be contained in a pocket. That’s why the diaper bag is such an essential piece of parenting equipment. In the past few years, companies have released a variety of excellent options for every type of parent. The best are comfortable, able to fit all the on-the-go baby gear essentials, and keep everything well-organized and easy to access. Here are three new diaper bags that we at Fatherly love.

Baby K’Tan Diaper Bag

This handsome, duffle-style diaper bag is made for travel, with lots of compartments and storage. A built-in, sealable wet bag keeps messes quarantined, while an insulated cooler bag chills bottles and snacks. There’s also a one-touch wipes case, a pacifier pouch, a changing pad, and a padded storage space for laptops. The exterior is 100 percent cotton, and the interior is a germ-resistant nylon. The bag’s casual weekender style makes it ideal for anyone who’d rather not announce to the world that they’re hauling diapers and snacks.

Humble-Bee Free Spirit Diaper Backpack

While becoming new parents may come with the weight of responsibility, it doesn’t have to come with the weight of additional luggage. Humble-Bee’s Free Spirit diaper backpack, made from lightweight ripstop nylon, weighs less than a pound, and yet it comes with a cavernous 20-liter capacity, multiple exterior pockets for as-needed access, and infant must-haves like a changing pad, reflective stroller straps, and a hot/cold gel pack for bottles. It’s an excellent, affordable choice for any parent — but particularly those who spend a lot of time in the outdoors.

Vianetic Diaper Bag

This sleek, well-designed diaper backpack — available in a very modern herringbone-esque pattern — is the ideal travel companion for fast moving families. It has a magnetic pull-release that immediately turns the pack into a changing station with a fold-out pad, designed for one-handed use. There’s also a pull-out caddy, which stores diapers and wipes, as well as a wet/dry compartment and an attachment to easily hang the bag from a stroller or an in-car headrest.\
