We decided to get the sport one with double kit. I don't think we use our skip hop diaper bag with this stroller. I just wonder what other owners use.
Also, what are other P&T accessories you bought and love? TIA!

I have the pannier bag, but don't love it. What I ended up using was a children's place preschooler backpack (b/c I got it for 99 cents, lol), I hook the loop of the backpack onto side of the stroller (close to where the closing mechanism is) and then attach a piece of velcro around it, so I make sure it doesn't fall off. BTW, it's never fallen off, but it's just a precaution. I keep things in there like snacks, bibs, diapers, wipes, change of clothes. I carry a hipster type purse for my valuables, but if some loser wants to steal the backpack on the side of the stroller, I'm willing to risk it. One other thing that worked for me was to get those stroller hooks, they sell them at burlington coat factory, they are red/blue/yellow colored and swivel. Put those on either side of your handles, and you can something like a vera bradley backpack using the hooks or any kind of other bag with a very long handle. I don't know if what I said makes sense or not, if not, ask and I will describe it differently. The only thing I don't like about using the hooks with some sort of diaper bag is that yes, it does stick out quite a bit and you may kick it if you are taller. I haven't used that option in a while, b/c I accidentally broke one of the stroller hooks (when using my combi) during a trip, so I am only down to one hook. I still prefer to hang a small backpack on the side of my P&T and just keep it attached (I take it off when I fold the stroller) while we are out for the day. I have yet to have anyone mess with it. I picked an obnoxious looking bag on purpose (camo colored, not something I would normally pick), in case anyone did try to take it, it would be more obvious to find.

PS- I forgot to answer the other part of your question. I highly recommend the cup holder/fanny pack. We have never used it as a fanny pack, but it is very useful and the zip pocket is big enough to fit in a small wallet, cell phone and keys if needed. I usually keep tissues, sunscreen and antibac gel in ours, since I carry a purse. As you could tell from my previous post I do not recommend the pannier bag, you can buy something else (like the preschooler sized backpack), which IMO does a better job than the pannier bag and is not such a rip off.
