» What is it: A small (11¾-by-3½-by-8½-inch) travel bag that defies anyone to be disorganized. It's perfect for toiletries, medication or other small items that become a nuisance in primary luggage.
» The good: The bag has enough pockets and elastic loops to keep anything you would want to carry securely in place. Inside there are 10 elastic bands to hold everything from pill bottles to travel-size toiletry products, two mesh pockets, one insulated pocket for hot or cold items, and another zippered pocket which also holds a removable zippered pouch. There is a zippered exterior pocket and a cellphone holder that clips to a shoulder strap. It would seem to be an excellent baby bag, capable of holding whatever a parent would need for a short excursion, and the fabric is water-resistant.
» The bad: Lacking baby accessories, I stuffed a WhatchyaGot bag with what we had lying around the office: a bottle of aspirin, a tiny trophy, a salt shaker, a Jeff Beck CD, a couple of paperbacks, some hand towels and a beer bottle. Everything fit securely, though it could be easy to overburden the bag because there is so much storage capacity. Also, the Velcro strip attaching the cellphone holder to the shoulder strap didn't seem secure.
