    I was telling a friend about the recent price hike for the double strollers and she offered to give me her old Maclaren Techno! :cool1: I got it tonight but it has no organizer bag on the handles. I've seen different types, but what kind do you guys recommend? Will I need to buy the weights fro the front of the stroller - will the extra weight on the handles make it tip? Can I still fold it easily with the attachment on there?

    Thank you!

    Maclaren makes a universal bag that attaches to "any" stroller. I just ordered one for my Combi, so I don't have any personal reviews, but online reviews were great. I don't know about tipping - Macs are feather-light, so it might be a problem if you add any weight at the top.

    Yes, I could not find what I wanted so I designed my own. Works pretty well too and makes it easy to spot my stroller. I was able to spot my stroller from the peoplemover in a crowded stroller parking lot LOL

    I really like the organizers from www.carryyou.com . I have one for my Triumph and I love it. Have a great trip!

    We have the SkipHop Dash it's nice with the quick clips to go around the stroller handles.

    I have a Skip Hop, too - awesome bag, but it flips my Combi, so I would imagine it'll flip a Mac, too. I love, love, loved using the Skip Hop on the full size stroller, though - best diaper bag ever!

    I have a skip hop too that I love! We used it last summer at Kings Dominion and it worked perfectly! never really had any trouble with the stroller tipping but we may use ankle weights on the front this trip just in case.

    What kind of weights do you use on the front of the stroller? I'd love to figure out how to keep my Mac from tipping! :confused3

    I think I read somewhere that light ankle weights work. I guess you just need to figure out where to put them so you can still fold it. Maybe someone has something better for you, though.

    Don't forget the duct tape. Yeah laugh but have something break or rip in the middle of the park without it

    We only hang the Skip Hop on the Quest during walks, if DS isn't in the stroller, the bag and stroller quickly end up on my feet.:laughing:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE our Skip Hop Duo for our double Maclaren twin techno. It holds TONS, and if you have a few water bottles or some stuff in the bottom of the stroller I haven't had problems with it tipping. You do need to take it off to fold the stroller, but it's easy and quick.

    Do you have to take off the Maclaren Universal organizer when you fold it? It looks so big! I like the idea of extra space, but I don't want to have to take it off. Maybe I'll just get one of the basic smaller ones for up top.

    You don't have to take off the carryyou.com organizers to fold it up. Not sure about the Maclaren versions. Good Luck!

    We travel with a 2001 Peg Perego Aria. It is about 8-9lbs, has a bar handle instead of umbrella handles and has NO cup holders (child or parent)...and we don't use any bag to hang off of it.

    If we have a few extra drinks (bottled water) they go in the bottom of the stroller w/ the changing pad and anything we've purchased that day. We generally travel light at WDW.

    With only one child, either dh or I would carry the Land's End backpack diaper bag w/ a few things in it and now with two, I just had my Baggalini (tossed in a few diapers and a travel wipes pack).

    I actually can't think of what we would put in a stroller bag? :confused3
