Checked nearly every box for us...
February 13, 2015
When the package arrived it looked as if it had been run down by a speeding semi on the freeway.. the stroller however was perfect with no issues. We put it together in under 5 minutes and were ready to roll. We are adopting so our girls are not home yet, we have not had the opportunity to do a real world trial. I did try out the "quick fold" and it actually worked!!! What a wonderful surprise! The steering is great and I can't wait to take it out and about.
We looked at a TON of strollers,
My criteria was that it be light (*cough* I'm getting older... my back can't take it),
be able to use it until each child hit 50 pounds,
Have a large sun shade (one child has an issue where this is REQUIRED),
both seats must recline (if I'm not napping someone should be),
it should be able to fit through a normal door, It needed to be easy to steer. I also am not a fan of the seats where one child is under the other childs butt... I think there would be arguing about who was stuck back there and I want to avoid that at all costs.
Pros:This was the lightest double stroller (it was even lighter than a couple of the umbrella strollers). This was SUPER easy to get together and fold up (the real test). I remember having a huge hassle with the stroller when my older kids were little. This one is a breeze. It does fold up pretty thin.
Both sides recline and each side can hole up to 50 pounds.
Cons:You will still need a bit of strength to heft this. It will still also take up a fair bit of room in your car/suv/minivan when folded (even with the thinner profile). The biggest annoyance is that every accessory is purchased separately.
Best Uses:I feel like this will be a great every day stroller, I do not think this would work for a real jogging stroller.. (If I am running on purpose... you better MOVE because there is a crazed maniac behind me!!) . I am sure we will take this on vacation as well. We considered dragging this on our adoption trip except we will be in 5 hotels in 5 different cities and need to negotiate the crowded train system (steps and all). We will be doing front packs instead! My back hurts just thinking about it.
