      Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

          I can tell you that some good friends are expecting (and soon!), so that's providing some extra (in-person) inspiration.

                      Congratulations to you and the Mrs.! Hope you all settle in nicely together real soon, it is a bit chaotic at first.

                      In my opinion, dedicated diaper bags are overrated. You only use them for a few years, whereas if you get a nice Synapse or other TB bag, you will find you use it for years and years as your needs change.

                      I used my large cafe bag ( repurposed from my school bag for 6 years ) as my diaper bag for all three of my children. I think a backpack is a great way to go, it keeps your hands free and doesn't get in the way when you are stooping/bending to help little ones. I always had my babies in a sling, so the cross body cafe bag worked better with the sling plus that is the only TB bag I had at the time.

                      Best of luck with your sweet new girls!

                        Hey barefoot. Totally agree. They very much seem to be overrated and often unnecessary. However, I'm more interested in this thread and TB excellence to see where they take the concept. I imagine the ultimate in utility.... Perhaps the Pilot (co-pilots big bro) with some interesting accessories like achieved with the camera and lens case (insert outsert). Until my wife said backpack, I've been leaning Imago or ID.

                        Good advice and perspective on the backpack.
                        Cheers

                          I gave my daughter an Imago as a diaper bag. The horizontal orientation works well, you can stash a full-sized bottle in the bottom, the two interior pouches are perfect for diaper wipes, hand sanitizer, A and D ointment, etc. on the one side and smartphone and wallet on the other.

                          Still would love to see what a dedicated Tom Bihn diaper bag would be like, though.

                            Darcy- if there ever will be a Tom Bihn diaper bag, will it still be called the 'Parental Unit'? I really like that name.

                              Thanks for reigniting the thread, photomatt. I've recently become one of the forum members who has a diaper bag deadline: april!
                              My wife is happy to let me do the bag research... She would like a shoulder bag, not backpack. She loves her small café bag I got her to replace her purse, so maybe I'll get her the large. Or maybe imago, as suggested above... Or maybe he parental unit!
                              For now, I'm ordering some cubes and another clear organiser and snake charmer, which can all be used in whichever bag we end up with.
                              Packing cubes can later be used for my/wife's/baby's clothes when packing for
