    which skip hop?

    I know this has been discussed in the past, but I'd like to revisit it. I'm thinking of buying a Duo, but worried that it might not be the right thing for us. I'm mainly looking for a stroller bag for when we finally make it out of the house together. DH thinks I don't need one at all. Anyway, for those of you with experience, which works best? The duo looks like it could be too tall.
    Does it bash you in the legs when it's on the stroller?
    I've only got 1 in diapers, but I carry lots of spare clothes and snacks.
    Thanks for your thoughts!

    I LOVE the duo. I have red cord. It hangs on the quest well and I love it as kind of a parent tray. I use the mesh pocket as a cupholder and there are tons of pockets for organization. I like the tall trim design because it doesn't bump my legs but holds enough stuff.

    I love my duo deluxe!!!!
    I only have one in diapers right now too, but it holds a ton of stuff! I keep my wallet and such in there too because I don't have a purse.
    When I don't have it full, it compresses so nice and doesn't feel like you're carrying a huge empty bag!
    I haven't had any problem with my legs hitting it. I put it on the shopping cart too, which keeps the kids from digging in it while we're grocery shopping!

    Re: which skip hop?

    I got a Dash for a great price on sale at Right Start, and I sold it on craigslist cause I wasn't a huge fan. I think my biggest complaint is the flap. It really gets in the way especially when hanging on the stroller or when I am walking around trying to get something from the center pocket. I started keeping everything in the outer pockets then I was like I may as well sell this thing and get one I can access easily. It is bigger than the Duo, but that's about it.

    I have a spark too and love it. It is so similar and so much cheaper.
