If you do not need access to the front pocket, and only need to store a few things, then I guess its an okay pack. I was looking for something for my toddler to use instead of the diaper bag. We still need to pack a change of clothes, a nap-time cloth diaper (in the process of potty training), shoes, a very small collapsible potty seat, and wipes in the main compartment. I also require a pocket for permanently packed essentials (Tylenol, benadryl, sunscreen and bug bite stick) that should have easily fit in the size of the front pocket. This front pocket was so tight and difficult to open when empty, that when packed it was nearly impossible. Certainly not easy to open like it clearly states in the main description. The rest of the main compartment did hold all the items listed above, but no room for a water bottle or snacks which would have made it too heavy for a toddler to carry anyway.
