Ok, I'm gonna ramble and try to cover everything. My kids are 3 years and almost 1 year. I bought this stroller since I have a third kid due in a few months. I could usually get away with my single stroller just fine but with 3, time for a double stroller. I am VERY happy with this purchase. I couldn't bring myself to spend the money on one of the fancier brands even though I hear people raving about them.
Pros: ~I have done a little running with this stroller and it's a very smooth ride. EASY to push even one handed.
~Easy to turn one handed.
~Plentiful cup holders (one for each child and 2 for the parent with a tray that has a lid
~Cost. I'm kind of cheap. If I can get a decent quality product for much cheaper that the fancy brands, that's what I'm gonna go for.
~Seats are comfortable and separated a little to keep those sibling fights to a minimum. They recline and sit up incredibly easy.
~FITS through doors! Amazing! I actually looked at the measurements of the widest point listed of this stroller when shopping and made sure it would at least fit through my front door. Yes, it's a bit of a squeeze, but I find it amazing that it'll fit at all.
~Plenty of storage in the basket. It has a divider down the middle of it, which I didn't think I would like but I've changed my mind. I use it to separate, toys from snacks, sunscreen, diapers/wipes.
~Easy to close. You'll need 2 hands and a foot but otherwise it closes smoothly.
~Easy to lock the wheels
~Individual sun shades with peak-through windows that can be pinned open.
~Easy opening of the trays to let older kids in and out. My 3 year old likes pushing the little button and lifting the tray out of the way himself. Each side opens individually.
~The buckles snap and unclip easily. Great design on these. for the 5-point harness in my single stroller you needed to clip the belt together first, then clip the shoulder straps. And take the process in reverse to get kids out. Annoying. These are incredibly easy to pull arms through and clip. Just like a car seat harness (minus the chest buckle). Cons:
~Um the bar in the back? Really? The basket is nice and big. However, there's a bar that runs right through the gap between the bottom of the seats and the top of the basket. So instead of having easy access to that big basket, there are 2 4 inch gaps. I can fit a soccer ball into the basket but you have to find a big enough gap and shove. Seems like that could have been designed a bit better.
~When running, the front wheel wobbles. It's less if you tights up the bolts up there, or you can run with that front wheel off the ground (actually not too difficult, the weight of the kids is balanced well), or you can lock the front swivel wheel (so you'll need to lift the front wheel to turn)
~The kids cup holders are kinda shallow. When running/jogging the kids would kind of toss their sippy into it and sometimes they wobble and fall out, causing me to slow down or stop but not a big deal.
~Didn't fit my infant carseat. Honestly, I didn't really expect it to. I have one of the Safety 1st infant seats and it's kind of big. My 11 month old was sleeping when I needed to go shopping so I had to take her out of that seat to put her in the stroller.
~ Adjusting harness straps is a little bit of a pain. If you have different kids riding and need to adjust the harness straps its a tiny bit of a pain. I usually just keep my 11 month old buckled on one side and my 3 year old just rides unbuckled. He hops in and out anyway.
~I'm not sure I got the correct safety strap. There's supposed to be one that you can attach to the stroller and then around your wrist. Mine was just a strap with a loop on one end. Was it supposed to be like that? How does that work? I just tied another loop on the other end to put my wrist through. It works. Unexpected benefits:
~I did a 5K with the kids and a friend with her kid this past weekend and it turns out, if the kids riding move their feet over, a 3rd kid can sit on that foot rest in the front. :D I know, probably not incredibly safe. Don't wanna run with them up there but it was nice they could when they got tired and it was STILL easy to push. That's with 40ish lbs on the front wheel, 40 in one seat, and 30 in another. Not bad.
~I like the design of the parent cup holders and tray. It's separate from the handle bar so it's never in the way and creates a good bar to hook on my stroller swivel hooks or one of those mommy hooks to carry shopping bags, water bottle, etc. I hope I was thorough enough for those looking into this stroller. I love it. My only real complaint is the bar across the basket. But oh well.
