Great Side-by-Side Stroller
May 28, 2014
I bought this stroller after using the Chicco Cortina double stroller w/ the Keyfit infant seat, so that's the only other double stroller I've used for comparison purposes. Once my twins got too big for their infant seats, I didn't really like the front/back set up of our Chicco stroller. The Combi stroller was reasonably priced with good reviews, so I thought we'd give it a go.
Things I like:
- Lightweight (relatively speaking)
- Folds up small and will stand on its own (allows you to fit something other than the stroller in the trunk!)
- Rides smooth, wheels turn well
- Extended sun canopy
- Seats recline easily
- Pouch on back of canopies hold keys & cell phone nicely
- Stroller comes assembled, you just put on the wheels! I was able to do it without my husband in a couple minutes.
Things I wish were better/different:
- Only 1 parent cupholder (this doesn't bother me too much b/c I usually just put a big mug of water for us all to share in the lower compartment)
- The middle wheel in the back ocassionally brushes my foot as I'm walking (not a big deal, I've never tripped or anything)
- I read comments about parents not thinking the kids cup holders were deep enough. We haven't tried them out yet, so I can't comment on that.
When I first got this stroller out of the box and took a stroll around the neighborhood, I thought it seemed/felt cheap to me. The stroller itself is a little flexible, so I think that's what led me to think that initially. After using it for a couple months, I do not think it is cheap at all. Bottom line - very happy with my purchase, glad I didn't spend the $300-400 for the City Mini Double, and I would recommend it/purchase it again for us.
