Overall good, but issue with quality: snaps break easily
I bought a second one of these bags when I was expecting my second child. We loved the first we bought in 2019. However, we've only been using the new one for about 6 weeks and one of the snaps has cracked and can't be repaired. I don't know how long it will hold out. I wish it came with metal snaps instead of plastic! Otherwise, it's a great bag--good size and waterproof.

Great for travel, limited floor space, or curious toddlers
I bought two of these for a two-week home reno that required is to move out of our comfy home. I wasn't sure what my diapering setup would be at the Airbnb, but I did know there would be sure handles. That's literally all you need to make this hanging bag work. The photo is from the week we moved home but the work wasn't done (a story for another time), during which our bedroom was the only place we could be. Today, the bag hangs on the least-popular end of the crib. Pros: easy to wash (I turn it inside out and zip 3/4 of the way so the straps stay out of the way), cute patterns (little mister buzzes when he passes by), durable, holds two days'-worth of diapers (~18 large workhorses), versatile straps (railing and door handle configurations), no leaks Cons: straps/strap snaps are not quite strong enough to carry 18 large wet diapers (I don't rinse and wring pee-only diapers), not quite air-tight so stinky poop diapers (even rinsed and wrung) will stink up your space, zipper is not quite long enough to allow the one-handed function AND open wide enough for a floppy large workhorse, they take a long time to hang dry due to the way the two layers are sewn (you can't just separate the layers and hang). I only took away one star for the cons because I'm hard on my stuff and I think the average user with smaller diapers would easily avoid the pitfalls I experienced. I really would like sturdier straps and a longer zipper, though.
Best wet bags
We have two of these so we always have one clean and they are excellent! Definitely recommend.
Easy to use and very cute !

We use this to put bibs and the paper towel alternative cloths until wash day. I generally rinse everything, and even let it dry a little before putting it in the bag but somehow the stench still builds up after a couple days. Not sure that is the bags fault. Otherwise I love that you can change direction of the straps so it can hang on a door hook. Also unzips easily. Wish they had solid colors but the black and white is a fair compromise. White would be nice, esp to hang in a pantry or laundry room.

Thank you for your review! Leaving items to dry mostly before putting in the bag is great. Also, try to leave it unzipped as much as possible (without items falling out of course) so that air can get in (and light). Dark, moist places are breeding grounds for bacteria, which is what causes the odor. make sure you wash at least weekly or when the bag gets about half full.
