The Skinny

Gerber 4 in 1 Diaper Tote has been discontinued.
Poor quality
Difficult storage
No internal pockets
The Gerber 4 in 1 Stripe Nylon Diaper Tote is a very simple diaper bag with an obvious baby bag feel. Although it is lightweight with a sweet appearance and a nice array of accessories, it is lacking in quality, durability, and storage. Don't be fooled by the low price. It is likely that this diaper bag will not satisfy your needs in the long run.

Our Analysis and Test Results

Although the Gerber 4 in 1 Stripe Nylon Diaper Tote scores low in quality, style, and storage, its low price point ($25) may be hard to ignore. However, don't be fooled. User reviews also cite problems with quality, such as a tote handles breaking, seams coming apart, and the wipes case drying out the wipes. There is also some discontent surrounding difficulty fitting all of the things necessary for a newborn.

This Gerber bag is made of 100% nylon with wipe clean linings and includes the following basic accessories: a wipeable changing pad, wipes case, and nicely sized accessory pouch. On the plus side, it is lightweight at 1.4 lbs and has a well-sized internal zipping compartment with lightly colored lining. However, there are no internal pockets making organization difficult. On the exterior, there are 2 zippered pockets and 2 uninsulated bottle pockets.

If you are looking for a simple, economical diaper bag, we don't think you will be pleased with the Gerber 4 in 1 Stripe Nylon Tote one due to issues with quality and storage.
