We have 3 of three and under and there is no way I would wear that, I carry a record bag with all the stuff for them in.

NappiesGaloriaInExcelsis · 05/12/2006 21:53


yeah, me too (3 of three and under)

actually i consider it an artform, managing to carry as small a bag as poss... but still have everything that anyone might possibly need/want at any time in any scenario even tenuously possible...

re-reading; you wouldnt wear it coz it looks like shit? or b/c of capacity issues?

Noooooooooooooooooooo, I implore you, nooooooooooooooooooo don't do it.

wheresmyfroggy · 05/12/2006 21:57

lol because it looks a bit crap
Dw [lockets] says she wouldn't let me wear it either.

imagine if you had to carry a dirty nappy until you found a bin - in your pocket
Or a leaky bottle - nice.

lol at bags of shite and leaky bottles of sour milk in pockets... not a great look/smell, i grant you

Another vote for the "got to be kidding" camp here, I'm afraid. It was a small rucksack all the way when mine were babies and toddlers.

NappiesGaloriaInExcelsis · 05/12/2006 23:30

well, you know, i thought that all along...

think it's a fab idea - everything to hand - especially when travelling and have to go to change little one.

NappiesGaloriaInExcelsis · 05/12/2006 23:38


i knew there must be one person out there...

i agree it could be

tho i take on board the point about carrying shitty nappy in pocket after changing...

My Dh says he would wear it becuase it would make life so much easier [scoff].

Yeh only because I would have to put everything in it for him and tell him what to do and when to do it.

But he said he would wear it instead of carrying a backback or other kind of bag...

I have my doubts .

NappiesGaloriaInExcelsis · 06/12/2006 00:03

well thats what its sold as; a bag for blokes who dont wanna carry a bag...

and i can see the point of that

with all that bulky stuff in the pockets, though, the 'line' would be ruined... not gonna win any style prizes, nor do much for ones sillhouette (sp) methinks

I'm loving the arrow pointing out that a pocket low down on the "vest" can be used for either additional storage or for "hands"

One is assuming that it is the wearer's hands and not some bizarre receptical for severed hands you may find whilst out on your travels???

Maybe it invites groping???

Let's face it, anything called a vest that does not go beneath clothing belongs on someone over the age of 70. Enough said.
