I’ve had a love for all things convertible since childhood - age 5 to be exact.

I remember it well: It was the day of my little sister’s birth and I was staying with a family friend because my mom and dad were at the hospital. I was a little down because I missed my parents and wasn’t particularly convinced that the little bundle of joy to come would be anything more than a life-ruiner who happened to look like me.  So after a matinee showing of 101 Dalmations (yes, it had just come out for the first time in theaters) we took a trip to the mall, where I received the COOLEST Barbie I’ve seen to this day. Why was it so cool? Because she wore a rockin’ gold puffy jacket (it was the early ’90s) that with a few alterations transformed into a miniskirt. I was hooked.

Here I am now having a similar reaction to the very chic Dakota Convertable Backpack. This lovely can be worn as a shoulder bag or backpack without any adjustment of the straps or clasps. Simply pull the strap up at bag’s top to throw over your shoulder, or pull the strap tight at each side to wear on your back. I know…I almost died too. Just take a deep breath, it helps.

The Dakota comes in black and brown leatherette and fastens at the front with a metallic clasp. Also don’t be fooled by these dinky pics, this thing is pretty darn roomy (16″ by 15.5″) - totally big enough to hold anything from books to baby bottles. It’s simple, convertible style is also a plus as it can be dressed up or down. Wear it as a backpack with jeans for class or the grocery store (is there anything better than hands-free shopping?), or throw it over your shoulder for dinner out.

The Dakota Convertible Backpack would also make the perfect gift for that friend (mom, daughter, niece…) who has everything. I’d be willing to bet she won’t have this.

Thank for the great review! I love anything convertible too, this would make a great diaper bag! With cloth diapers I am always looking for something roomy. Wish it was real leather though (even with a higher price). How much does it cost?

Hi! It's around $50. Yes, I understand the "not real leather" concern. Although I do like the animal-friendly aspect.

Thanks for letting me know! I like animal friendly, but I don't like things 'fake'. I saw a genuine leather one for 3 times the price though! :)
