Double Strollers – ATST’s Honor Roll

Hi Guys! I’m back with my favorite double strollers (I’ve used each one on the list) that are here to make your life with two or more a bit easier!

What makes a double stroller great? A few things…  1) It must have an easy fold. Grocery shopping with two kids is bad enough.  I don’t want to fight my stroller in the parking lot to fold it.  2) It needs to be comfortable for your little riders. After all, you bought it for them…right? (this is not true. I buy strollers because I like them. #notashamed). 3) It must have a one hand push . I don’t know about you guys, but I am a big fan of the push and pull. I.E. push the stroller with my right hand and pull the shopping cart behind me with my left.  It’s the only way!  If I can’t maneuver a stroller with one hand,  it’s gone.  4)  It needs to have ample storage space.  Two kids = A LOT of $h%I.

So, without further ado…

  1. UPPAbaby Vista – 2015

FullSizeRender

Grade: A+

Price: $989.98 (silver frame) – $1039.98 (carbon frame)

Weight: 33.5 lbs (with both seats)

Max Weight Capacity: 50 lbs Main seat – 35 lbs RumbleSeat

Fold: Super easy fold with both seats

Dimensions: Unfolded: 26.5”W x 37”L x 39.5”H – Folded with seat second attached: 26.5”W x 14”L x 33”H

What makes it great: The fact that this stroller is just as good as a double as it is a single makes it amazing. I love everything about the 2015 Vista! As a double, you don’t compromise the push, fold, or storage space. That’s not always the case when it comes to a convertible stroller. Each seat has large extendable canopies , easy one hand reclines, and a million and one seating configurations. Plus, I could probably fit in the storage basket. It’s fab, and worth the price tag!

 

 

2. Mountain Buggy Duet

FullSizeRender

Grade: A+

Price: $599

Fold: So easy it will blow your mind.

Dimensions: Only 25 inches wide!!!!

WeightL 33 lbs

Max Weight Capacity: 40 lbs per seats

What makes it great: Ummm, it’s 25 inches wide. Need I say more? The MB Duet is overall the best side by side double available right now. It’s narrow, has a crazy easy fold, doesn’t weigh a million pounds,  and decent storage space. I could go on and on. It rocks! Want a side by side that can handle it all? This is your stroller.

 

3. Contours Options Elite

FullSizeRender

Grade: A

Price: $299.95

Fold: Simple one piece fold

Dimensions: Folded 15″ L x 22.13″ W x 36.75″ H  – Unfolded: 49.5″ L x 26″ W x 39.8″ H

Weight: 38 lbs

Max Weight Capacity: 90 lbs

What makes it great: Everything. It’s no secret I am a huge fan of the COE! Why am I such a big fan? Because a company finally listened to parents and made a tandem double stroller that is not only awesome, but AFFORDABLE! The COE (Contours Options Elite if you haven’t caught on yet) has a great push, large storage basket with easy access, enough space between seats so the kids aren’t kicking each other and large extendable canopies (with mesh inserts!). I also love a small feature you may not notice as first glance…the seats have a little mesh pocket attached which is perfect for holding toys, binkies, etc.  There is a certain tandem stroller out there that everyone and their mother has…I say step away from that beast and enter the world of the Contours Options Elite! You’ll love how functional it is! #COEfanforlife

 

4. Valco Snap Duo2

FullSizeRender

Grade: A+

Price: $499.99 – $579.99 (Tailormade pictured above)

Fold: Easy and flat!

Dimensions: Unfolded: 29.5″W x 30″L x 41″H  –  Folded: 29.5″W x 31″L x 13.25″H

Weight: 24 lbs

Max Weight Capacity: 44 lbs  in each seat

What makes it great: This bad boy weighs in at just under 24 lbs  making it the ultimate everyday or travel stroller. I love the easy one hand push, roomy seats for the kids (adjustable leg rests are a huge plus), and most of all, the fold! The fold is insanely compact and has a carry strap for easy handling.  Something else I love about the fold is that it folds into itself. This is perfect for travel! Who wants seat fabric getting all dirty during the flight? Not me.

 

5. Bugaboo Donkey aka The Donkey

FullSizeRender

Grade: A-

Price: expensive.

Fold: 2 step fold

Dimensions: 29″ in duo mode  –  Folded: 20.5 x 29 x 36.6”

Weight: 33.4 lbs

Max Weight Capacity: 37.5 lbs per seat

What makes it great:  It’s the Donkey!  It’s amazing and expensive. If you can swing it, get it!  Having the ability to parent face one child and forward face the other is somewhat priceless. The push is fabulous, the seating configurations are unbeatable, and again, it’s the Donkey.  I’m convinced that if you look at a Donkey for longer than 1 minute,  you will  catch Bugaboo fever. It’s real, and takes over quickly! You won’t sleep until you get that Donkey!

5. Thule Urban Glide 2

FullSizeRender

Grade: A

Price: $649.95

Fold: One hand and compact

Weight: 32 lbs

Max Weight Capacity: 100 lbs total

DImensions: Folded – 35 in x 30.75 in x 14 in  (seat  back height 21 inch)

What make it great: The Thule Urban Glide 2 is probably the prettiest jogging stroller on the market. The design is super sleek and it’s fairly light weight for a jogger.  It makes me want to wear lululemon every day and take up running (I am way too lazy for that so I’ll just stick to aggressive mall walking).  The front wheel on the Thule is lockable, and features rear suspension for a super smooth ride. The storage basket is awesome and actually has a water-resistant zip top cover to keep all your belonging safe and secure while on the go! If you need a double stroller that can handle anything from a 10 mile run to a quick Target trip, the Thule Urban Glide 2 might be the perfect pick for you!

 

And there you have it! The best double strollers on the market…for now at least…

Rumor has it a few amazing doubles are coming out at the end of the year. **Cough, Cough, UPPAbaby G-LINK and Peg Perego Book for Two**  <— CAN’T WAIT!!

 

Congrats on making ATST’s honor roll!

 

Happy Strolling

      Im not a big fan of the City Select. I love the Britax B-Ready as a double though! As long as the second seat placement isn’t an issue, it’s a great tandem!

      • Muhammad says:

        I’d love the Ore bib set. Into skulls these days – have no idea why, but I’d think those would be so fun for a llttie boy, which we’re expecting in about 6 weeks. All of our daughter’s bibs are girl themed, and it just wouldn’t be very nice to dress him all up in a flowery bib!

    • Helen says:

      Do you have he dimensions of the MBD? Also does it have an attachment so that an infant carrier seat can be connected to it?

      • Jacqueline Oliva says:

        Hi Helen! What dimensions are you looking for? The Duet does have an adapter for car sets, as well as a carry cot which gives you a bassinet feature! 🙂

      • Simone says:

        Oh my goodness! I hope I win! I just had my baby 5 weeks ago and would LOVE to get him some toys! I would prabobly choose the cordy roy gator. That thing is so cute! I also like the Upper/Lowercase ABC blocks. For clothes I really like the organic whale and giraffe onsies. SO CUTE!!Loved your interview by the way!

    • Popovici says:

      We have three kids (6 months), 2 and 3. What shloud we do for a stroller?We currently have a Graco Double stroller that is not very convenient. Triple jogging strollers cost a fortune and don’t seem worth the money for the relatively short time that we would use it. We were thinking maybe a double jogger, with a stand on riding attachment. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    OMG! I’m 36 weeks today with my first and I’m so happy you introduced me to this site just now. I love it and it would be nelray impossible to choose something, but I have to say that the toys here are just so darn cute! I’d need at least a few blocks or one of those wooden animal banks. Thanks!
