We were very pleased with the overall performance of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Supplied, and it looks like we're not alone. Moms who use this bag continually praise this it for its stylish patterns and thoughtful design. It is big enough to hold all of your essentials without being too big to carry comfortably. The multiple compartments make it easy to keep your belongings organized. It is also machine washable (as are all bags from Ju-Ju-Be), making it easy to keep things sanitary. With so much to love, it quickly became a tester favorite and it's easy to see why it won our Editors' Choice Award.

Our Analysis and Test Results
Ju-Ju-Be is a company founded in 2005 by Joe Croft and Kristin Hunziker and based in Costa Mesa, California. They provide fashionable, high-quality bags and accessories for moms and dads alike. The company employs mom bloggers and testers, known as "Content Creators". We are impressed with the extensive range of chic and modern style bags offered.
The Be Supplied won our Editors' Choice Award, as there is plenty to admire about this lovely bag.
Ease of Use
To get straight to the point, this bag is easy to use. Ju-Ju-Be has put a lot of thought into the organization of their bags as there seems to be a spot for everything. We were easily able to fit all of our necessary pumping supplies in the bag, along with a laptop, personal gear, and water bottle, all in a neat and organized manner. The side compartment provides easy access to your pump, and we were able to fit multiple size and shape pumps without hassle, including the Spectra pumps.
Quality is another area where the Be Supplied outshines some of the other competitors. The durable material should last for years, making this a bag that will possibly go beyond your pumping days to transition to a diaper bag or even work bag. We love everything from the stylish patterns to the gold hardware and easy to use zippers.
While the bag was not the lightest bag we tested, it is still fairly light at 1.9 lbs. This is because the Be Supplied is on the smaller end of the size spectrum, especially when compared to the larger version of the bag, the Ju-Ju-Be Be Pumped. Still, we were impressed with how lightweight the material is for how durable it is.
There are many features that truly enhance your overall experience with this bag. For starters, Teflon™ fabric protector is applied to all of the bags to make them water resistant, making them super easy to quickly wipe down after a spill, as well as giving them the ability to be tossed in the washing machine for a deeper clean. Another great feature is the Agion® treatment, which safeguards the inner liner by hindering "the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew". On top of it all, you have a memory foam padded messenger strap, well-organized mommy pocket with key bungee and luggage feet to keep the fabric off of the floor. The one thing that we feel the bag is missing is an additional insulated pocket for milk storage. One solution is purchasing the Ju-Ju-Be Be Equipped set, which includes a small cooler, wet bag, and storage bag.
The Be Supplied is modern and chic. With multiple patterns and different color options to choose from, we think you will easily be able to find something that will flow with your personal style. We appreciate how the good sense of style makes this bag very discreet. It does not announce "I have to go express milk for my baby!" to the world like some others might.
While this has a higher price tag than several of the other bags we tested, it was still not the most expensive. When you combine the versatility it offers with its high-quality construction, we believe this bag is worth it when you consider its potential lifespan.
We love this bag, and it won the Editors' Choice award for good reasons. Its performance as a breast pump bag was unparalleled within this review, and when you consider that it may do just as well beyond the pumping years, we are sure you will be happy with this bag. We believe the style, features, and quality we found in the Ju-Ju-Be Supplied are all you need. Happy pumping!
