"hey everyone I've got a diaper bag to review for you today this is the Ju-Ju-Be Be Classy and this is in probably one of their newest colors it's called "Chrome" and it's part of their Onyx Collection so as you can see it's a solid gray color kind of like a dark charcoal heathered gray color and this was an absolute shoo-in for me in terms of color because gray is definitely one of my favorite colors along with a couple of different kinds of blues so this was a no-brainer for me to pick up because I just absolutely loved the color it's very very nice and solid Ju-Ju-Be usually comes out with some more print like materials rather than solid colors of course they have a solid black and stuff but this seemed to be the first solid gray color that I've seen them make and so I was definitely very drawn to it from the outset and it is really really nice so far if you're familiar with other Ju-Ju-Be bags the texture of the bag on this Chrome print is a little bit different from their kind of more smooth coated teflon other prints like the Legacy Collection I'm i always get Queen of the Nile and so I'm kind of comparing this textured like solid color to like Queen of the Nile which is definitely more smooth to the touch on the outside of the bag but this one is really cool and just has a little nice texture to it i don't know if the camera is going to capture that for you but it's almost like a i don't i don't want to say crosshatch or anything like that but it just has a little bit of texture to it as opposed to something like Queen of the Nile or other common prints that Ju-Ju-Be makes are more smooth to the touch and so as you can see right away the difference that this particular print or color has to others is some of the hardware is very different from other Ju-Ju-Be bags like they I guess they kind of switched back to the square logo rather and the kind of like horizontal plaque with Ju-Ju-Be written in kind of a cursive font they just went back to the little star with a little Ju-Ju-Be writing here on the front here I thought that was really nice because it's really small and kind of I don't know just kind of blends in really nicely the rest of the hardware on this bag is all silver so unlike the other bags in the Onyx collection which usually have all black matte hardware do keep in mind that the zippers and like the little rings here the d-rings on the bag they're all silver rather than black but the little logo on the front here is black just like the rest of the Onyx prints so i'll just go ahead and get into the bag real quickly for you this is packed up as a typical kind of weekend out with my twins as well as my husband we just took this out yesterday actually for a nice like shopping trip to the outlets and so i'll just go ahead and open it up for you the Be Classy has a really nice very large mommy pocket in the front I really like the size of it it's definitely bigger than something like the Ju-Ju-Be BFF's mommy pocket so this is a really really nice size and as you can see the inner lining is beautiful in a like a crimson almost not burgundy but like a crimson red color it's very very nice and has these kind of nice sporty stripes that are all over the lining and so inside here attached to the key fob I just have my keys clipped and then in this there's two little pockets on the back wall one is a zipper and one is a slip pocket and so in the zipper pocket i just kind of stashed a package of tissues in there nothing else in there in this slip pocket i just have a Honest hand sanitizer as well as some hydrocortisone cream nothing else in the slip pocket and then just kind of sitting just loosely in the mommy pocket i have my little thing that I always take with me in diaper bags it's just a little Vera Bradley coin purse in the print Jazzy Blooms which is retired now just have some eye drops and some sunscreen little hand lotion and some chapstick in there then in the front of the mommy pocket like part of the flap part there's another slip pocket as well as the sunglasses holder so in the sunglasses holder i do actually keep my sunglasses they work pretty well it's a very generously-sized sunglass holder and of course this is made with the kind of microfiber or whatever material that you can use to actually wipe your glasses so and then next to it in the slip pocket I just keep my little current wallet which is a Fossil coin purse very useful for me right now because it's very slim and compact I just keep my credit cards receipts a little bit of cash and some coupons in the front pocket here and then in the back here just got a of course coupon alright so that's pretty much all that I kept in the front mommy pocket there was plenty more room as you can see I definitely didn't fill it all the way up it also kind of juts out a little bit you've got some room here to kind of expand outward it's a pretty flexible material so you can really stuff it if you wanted to but all of those items are pretty much all that I care to keep in the mommy pocket I don't really want to bulk it up too much so that's everything that I kept in there I like how it's a nice double zip rather than a single zip so that you can kind of unzip and zip back up however you need it's very flexible then I'll just go to the back here on the back is a very generously-sized long zipper pocket on the back and you can see here it's a one long zipper and then there's another kind of hidden pocket back here so one long zipper here and it's very very big pocket and the only thing that I keep in there right now is just my Wi Pouch with some wipes hand and face wipes but typically the the main item that is kept in this pocket is the change pad that comes with the bag so i'll just let you take a look at it so you have an idea of what it looks like very nice memory foam very thickly padded it has that beautiful crimson lining with the stripes as well on the inside and the nice chrome color on the outside but i don't typically need the kind of luxurious change pad anymore so I just don't keep this in there anymore but just in case you wanted to see what it looks like so then in the kind of hidden bonus or media pocket if you will i do of course just keep my cell phone which is an iPhone 6s plenty of room in there this is a huge huge media pocket you could definitely fit the 6 Plus or 7 Plus phones if you needed to but this is just a 6s with a little loopy case attached to it that's all that I keep in the back I usually like to keep this back pocket really open for random stuff that needs to be thrown in there, receipts trash whatever stuff like that just can be stashed in there quickly and it's a quick access pocket for my wipes case and then on the sides of the bag they have some really nice bottle pockets they're kind of hidden bottle pockets rather than the kind of slot that most diaper bags come with this is actually just a hidden bottle pocket that opens with a vertical zipper and it's pretty generously-sized however because of the way this pocket is configured your bottle is going to jut out into the interior of the bag so it is going to take up space in the the main compartment of the bag just FYI on that but it is otherwise pretty generously sized and there's one of these pockets on each side of the bag which is really nice and they are also insulated so they'll keep your drinking sort of hot and cold as you need them so that's all of the kind of exterior pockets you can see that be top opens with just one long zipper and it has a little tab extender tab out here that can be tucked into the bag of course it's just one zipper rather than two just one long zip across the top here and you open it up really nice and wide and it's got just more of that really really pretty crimson red lining and in here I just packed up you can see there's plenty more room in here I did not stuff it the max I try not to as much as I can because I don't know what other additional items i'm going to need to stuff in there like jackets or sweaters so I try to keep my diaper bags fairly loose and not packed to the max but in here I just have at the top here actually have a little bag with a pretty nifty water bottle or two water bottles rather one for each of my kids and this is something that I discovered on amazon it's called a Hydaway bottle hopefully you can see that on the camera there but basically what this is is a just a collapse collapsible silicone water bottle so you can see that it just it folded down really nice and small just a little small like saucer size and then you just open up the spout here and pull it up and then it becomes a full-size water bottle this is 12 ounces and it's made out of silicone and just minimal plastic so I like how it's largely made out of non-toxic materials and this is just a really easy just twist off cap and it's really wide mouth so you can put ice cubes and whatever you need to in here really easily although FYI there is no kind of stopper that's attached to the spout so water will kind of flow freely out of this bottle if it's tipped over but because of the design of the bottle because the bottom is so wide it's a pretty tough for it to tip over it's going to be pretty stable but if your kid kind of turns it over water will come out pretty easily but with my twins who are two I it's pretty minimal I didn't find it to be too big of a problem not having a stopper with the spout here and i find that they actually drink a lot of water with these water bottles because there is no stopper and the water just flows really freely and easily for them so this was a cool little bottle and just FYI I did try to see if this would fit into the bottle pockets on the sides and it does which is pretty cool because this is such a wide bottom much much wider than your typical water bottles and it's it's also because it's so wide it's not going to fit in like your average cup holder in your car so that kind of was a bummer but it will fit into the bottle pockets just fine although of course it's going to jut out into the inside of the bag a little bit but it still does fit in there so that was really cool that I thought worked with this bag and I guess the one kind of plus of having this type of bottle pocket rather than your typical slot water bottle pocket is yeah you can accommodate much wider than normal water bottles if you wanted to like this one and just as an illustration i will show you another one of my kids' typical water bottles this is a Nalgene Grip n Gulp water bottle which is pretty tall and wide this is a 12 ounce water bottle and it also fits but just kind of barely you can't really go much taller than this so i guess one drawback is you can't really accommodate really tall water bottles but you can definitely accommodate wider ones so this is pretty much the tallest if you're familiar with the Nalgene Grip n Gulps this is probably the tallest type of water bottle that you can put in here so that was the Hydaway bottle and I just kept it in a Bumkins reusable snack bag it's kind of nice for corralling them both together and I just have another one in blue for the other kid so that's just kind of that was sitting kind of loose on top here and sometimes I'll stuff it into the side water bottle pockets too once they're actually filled with something so then at the bottom here i just have the Ju-Ju-Be black magic print their large set piece and this is just typical diaper stuff got another the bigger size Wi pouch in there with more wipes and some diapers diaper cream trashbag typical stuff like that and then also sitting kind of loosely in the main compartment here i have the tried-and-true restaurant keep-them-busy sort of toy these are called Wikki Stix which i absolutely love i just recently discovered these on Amazon they're basically just little tiny I don't even really know what to call them they're like wax sticks or something but basically like you can see like this is what my kids did at the restaurant the other day they just took a bunch of them and kind of twisted them together but basically you can you can just mold and shape them however you want and it just it keeps them so occupied they absolutely love these they just they it's an awesome awesome awesome thing to keep them occupied if you need to and so this is just like a package of 24 of them that i found on amazon for just like a couple bucks so this was definitely worth it and I try to have these with me all the time when I'm out and about with the kids just in case I need to keep them happy and this has actually replaced a prior bag that i used to use with crayons and paper and stickers and all of those things a pack of these can just pretty much replace that entire bag so Wikki Stix that's all that i really had in the main compartment area and then it's just the pockets on the two sides of the bag so on the front pocket of the bag there is like a mesh slip pocket as well as a small zip pocket in the mesh one i just keep the Ju-Ju-Be small set piece and this is just medical stuff band-aids neosporin and stuff like that and then in the zippered pocket i just keep the strap to all of the Ju-Ju-Be set-pieces the longer strap as well as a reusable wet dry bag and a couple of immunization records have to take them to their pediatrician pretty soon so that's the zippered size pocket and then in the back wall it just has two nice-sized with elastic mesh slip pockets and in the back one I just keep a reusable snack bag houses their Bumkins bibs which I've talked about in previous videos for sure these are my absolute favorite in terms of being really easily packable because you can fold them very easy to wipe clean they've got the little crumb catcher pocket thing and they're also very inexpensive you can get multiple ones for under ten dollars and lots of prints so bib bag as well as little cutlery bag or not bag but cutlery case this is their travel spoons and forks that i put four of them into one little plastic case like this and then in the other mesh slip pocket i just keep the Ju-Ju-Be medium set-piece also in black magic and this just has a bunch of snacks snacks and a couple little toys so that is the interior of the Be Classy I think one thing that I was sort of missing it's not a huge deal one thing that I was missing in this bag say in contrast to like the BFF which i had for a long time one thing I was kind of missing was a long zippered pocket across the wall on any side it doesn't matter back or front one thing i noticed that this bag did not have was a long horizontal zip pocket to kind of corral a lot of random things the only zip pocket in this bag is just this one here on the front wall and it's just like a half-size it's much much smaller than a lot of their like long horizontal zip pockets are so that was sort of one thing i noticed i would have loved to have like a long horizontal zip pocket on any side otherwise it wasn't it definitely wasn't a big deal not not fatal or a deal-breaker or anything but that was one thing i noticed but there's otherwise there's just plenty of pockets all over there's two on the back two on the front and then of course the mommy pocket and the two bottles the pockets on the sides i do like how the bottle pockets on the sides can be used for other things I mean it's not it doesn't scream water bottle pocket you know like the slots often do in other bags so I did really like that about these you can easily put your phone in here or your keys you know quick grab items your wallet can also go in here for really easy access on the outside of the bag like say if you wanted to use this for a work bag i think this would actually make a fantastic work bag as well because it just looks so neutral you can use it for many different things other than diaper bag or when your kids are grown you can definitely use this later for travel or work I think it'd be really great for those and then of course Ju-Ju-Be is just great in terms of their features with the d-rings and being able to attach stroller clips easily i just think this is a really excellent versatile bag that can be used for years and years and years after you don't need a diaper bag anymore and so this is just a quick look at the little messenger strap that comes with the bag it's nicely padded with memory foam here on the kind of cushion and then the rest is slightly padded as well but it's nice and adjustable so you can wear it crossbody if you want to so that is the Be Classy i am a fan um I don't know if you've seen some of my other videos but I typically don't like rolled handles because they're a little bit stiffer than i would like i do prefer my handles to be flat but these these are ok I mean they've got some slight padding to them so they're not too uncomfortable on my shoulder I would prefer them to be flat but not too big of a deal for me i found that it worked and it was it was ok on my shoulder it wasn't it wasn't digging too badly which they tend to do when they're rolled but it was fine so otherwise if I think it's a really really nice bag i enjoy the color a lot i like how it's very kind of minimalist there's not a whole lot of bells and whistles on the outside of the bag it's very sleek looking the logo's very very nice and sleek looking and it's just a fantastic color that you can use for any purpose whether it be diaper bag work bag travel bag so I think Ju-Ju-Be was very clever in coming out with this particular print or color rather and I do like how it does have some fun with color on the inside of the bag so that you can still have your fun print if you like so again that's the Ju-Ju-Be Be Classy in the Chrome color part of their Onyx collection that just came out pretty recently i think in October 2016 so if you have any questions or comments please feel free to post below and thank you so much for watching ..."
