Our newest bag the Kennedy has all the same great features you've loved from its little sister the Lizzie and bigger sister the Kaitlyn but with more style and looks and two colors.
5 Piece Accessory Pack ($80 value included)
How does the USB Charging Hub Work? You can either use your own portable battery pack or purchase one from Sleepy Panda. Plug the portable battery pack into the cord on the inside of the bag. Plug your own phone cord into the charging hub on the exterior of the bag. Turn battery on and your phone will charge. You can place your phone inside the rear privacy cell phone pocket while the phone is charging.
I have been eyeing a Sleepy Panda backpack for about 6 months before I made the leap to get this Kennedy bag in black. Originally I wanted the Kaitlyn because I thought it would be the perfect size for me at work and for the kids. I'm a step mom to 3 (10/4/2), have a job that requires many books, and prefer to pack a travel backpack to a luggage set. After realizing the Kaitlyn would be too big and would look bulky on my small frame, I considered the Lizzie but decided against it because I don't like the grab/purse handles on the top. Not long ago they released this beautiful bag and I knew it was the one. The real kicker other than the thick, durable quality of the bag is the accessories that come with. I'll talk about some of the things that weren't apparent in the pictures since we all can see how great this bag is otherwise. I rate 5 stars, hands down!
-It fits on my back perfectly and comes with an adjustable hook on strap that will allow the bag to be carried as a messenger bag. I love this for the versatility.
-The front zip pocket is so easy to get to because the material covering the zipper is more of a flap.. I wish this was also the case for the zip pocket on the back of the bag. I can barely fit a hand in there because the material doesn't allow much give. Needless to say anything you store there will be safe from any grabby hands while traveling or at a theme park.
-I carry a 1liter Camelback water bottle and it barely fits in the outside bottle pockets (inside bottle pockets are a breeze). Barely, but it fits and I am happy with that. I wouldn't feel comfortable carrying a larger yeti cup unless it had a top that closes shut completely.
-The front of the bag has magnets that keep the flap secured together in case you don't want to zip your bag up always, and the opening of the bag is very wide since it has a long "U" shaped rod on either side.
-A missed opportunity for the design would be a wide open pocket on the front of the bag that would be accessible once you lift the main flap.
I would buy this bag again and will keep checking back to see more of what sleepy panda produces!
I’m obsessed with this bag, it has compartments for everything, it’s super comfortable, cute and affordable. It also has a USB which is extremely convienent. I’m going to use this bag all the time.
I have looked high and low for a backpack that was not specifically a diaper bag but was also affordable. I also wanted it to have insulated pockets and lots of storage. After about two weeks, I finally came across this brand!!
As a mother to two toddlers, I purchased this mostly because of the amount of pockets, exterior water bottle holders and for its sleek design. I did not want a diaper bag that looked like a diaper bag, so I can use it for a long time to come. Yet I still need to carry sippy cups, water bottles and snacks that need to stay cold (and will inevitably spill.) I love that this bag has 2 insulated pockets on the outside and comes with an additional insulated bottle/ sippy cup bag.
The material of the bag itself is heavy duty and easy to wipe down inside and out. I previously owned a bag that was really stylish but the top carrying handle starting separating from the bag so I decided that I needed something designed to withstand the wear and tear of a mom bag/ diaper bag. This is definitely the bag, although it does weigh more than other bags but that's due to the quality of the materials used.
This bag has so many extras included as well. It has stroller straps, a crossbody strap and everything else listed in the description. At first I thought they were add-ons but nope, they all come included!
Customer service was great as well. I had purchased a different bag originally but decided this one better suited my needs so I exchanged it. Response time was super fast and easy!!
