I received a blue corduroy one for my first child and used it for two years. At the end it only had a slight tear in the plastic coating on two of the bottom corners - I was able to pass it along to another new mom. When we found out we were expecting again - I immediately sought out another of these bags. I'm not one to spend alot on purses, if it costs more than the cash I normally carry, I can't afford it, but this diaper bag it the exception. It's well worth every penny. As a tall mom, the carrying strap is long enough to go over the shoulder and stay there; its also easily long enough to go across the stroller handle when we are on outings, making for easy access to items.
