I have an instep single jogger that I bought in 2009 and I really like it so I went with this brand again when I needed a double jogger. This one is much different than the one I bought and am happy with from 3 years ago!
First, this one's seats have no padding, and nothing thats removable to wash. I can not take my kids on a long walk or they get sore and uncomfortable because the seats are so hard!! Also, they dont sit up quite as straight as I would like them to. the fabric is like a stiff plastic instead of a fabric, I like the old fabric better. The seats are narrow and short, my average size 2.5yr old who only weighs 29lbs barely fits, and if she grows a few more inches she will be too tall for it! Shes only 2!! The seats are just extremely uncomfortable. The shoulder strap pads are not removeable like they were on the older model which is ridiculous because not everyone wants them on, and the only way to get them off, to clean them, etc, is to cut them off!! Stupid. There is no pouch in the back to put things in (like in the older models), only underneath. I also do not like or understand why there is a big metal bar right in front of where one would attempt to put things in the bottom of the stroller in the baskets made for carrying things! If you want to put something like a larger diaper bag down there, its impossible, not because the pouch is too small, but because the bar prevents you from being able to put anything in it!
The parent handle is a hard plastic thing, not a nice soft foam like the old ones, and the grip is only on the sides instead of all the way across like it ought to be! The stroller STINKS like toxic chemical fumes, it is HORRIBLE. The 2 seats for the children are so seprate that they can not even see eachother, play, or talk to eachother, I would prefer that there was not a big spacer thing between them so that they could interact.
The wheels are much more cheaply made than before. I liked the bicycle tires with the metal spokes, but now they are made with those ridiculous, ugly plastic wheels instead!
The biggest flaw to me is the seats. They need to be more comfortable and larger.
