Dante Beatrix Stroller Tote

Dante Pauwels is the founder of Dante Beatrix, a Manhattan based company which offers a variety of top quality bags for moms and kids. Dante has an impressive resume which includes designing products for Martha Stewart. We received two products to test: a stroller tote and a matching envelope.

The stroller tote is a stylish, durable and very well constructed messenger style diaper bag made from easy to clean canvas. It measures 18 x 12 x 5 inches which is ample size for holding essentials without being cumbersome. The stroller tote is available in both bright and neutral colors, all featuring a simple graphic on the front. Marcia Cross has been spotted with the Peace Design. Hip moms ala Gwen Stefani will love the luxe version which features metal studs. The stroller tote bag has an adjustable shoulder strap as well as special clips which allow the bag to fasten to stroller handles (be sure that your stroller can handle the extra weight!). The spacious interior of the bag is light colored, making it very easy to find things. An easy-to-clean, matching 14 x 20 inch changing pad is included and we like that it secures with velcro. Two small inner pockets can hold anti-bacterial wipes, tissues, or a snack. The most innovative feature of this bag are the dual drawstring pouches on either side of the main compartment, which adjust in size to hold a baby's bottle, mom's water bottle and even a wide sippy cup. We haven't come across an adjustable bottle pouche that can accommodate such a variety of bottle or cup sizes before and think that it's pure genius! The exterior of the bag features one large, deep pocket and a cell-phone pouch, which will make it very easy to retrieve your cellphone. The bag has a sturdy zip closure to keep the contents safe.

The matching envelope with removable strap is the perfect companion to the stroller tote. Perfect for when you need to run a quick errand and just need the bare basics. It measures 10.5 x 7.5 x 2.2 inches and will hold a pack of wipes and a few diapers. You can wear it over your shoulder or hang it over the stroller. Remove the straps and tada it doubles as a trendy clutch. A magnetic closure keeps the contents safely tucked inside.

Dante Beatrix hasn't forgotten about the kids! Just in time for back to school, check out the adorable little kid backpacks, and big kid backpacks.

The Luxe line is very cool.

I like how it attaches easily to a stroller. I have a bugaboo which can take weight on the handles without remotely tipping, but haven't been able to find a bag designed to attach to a stroller until now. The designs are awesome!
