We chose this because it folds up smaller than most double strollers. We use it when traveling or shopping as we have a larger, side-by-side, double stroller we use when at home and for going for walks. We ordered it online after reading about it online. We were disappointed that it did not have the full recline and baby boot that the previous Jeep Traveler Tandem had (brown version). If purchasing and there is a choice, I'd chose that version over this Spark Green version. Because it does not have this, it is not suitable for newborns unless you use a car seat. Folding - It does fold up small compared to other double strollers but folding it up is sometimes difficult as it "sticks". Maneuverability - Don't expect to make tight corners - it is a bit cumbersome, but it isn't too bad to push. It does fit through doors and down shopping aisles unlike a lot of double strollers. Storage - It does have lots of storage underneath. However, it would be better if the basket pushed down as some strollers do. When you have the rear seat reclined, it is difficult to access the basket. Also, if it had a parent tray on the handle, it would be better. As for the bags on the side - to me these are basically useless. The Steering Wheel - My 2 year old son loves this. A definite bonus. Straps - The straps aren't as nice and padded as other strollers. Especially the strap at the crotch. This should be wider and/or padded. Sun Shades - As mentioned in some online reviews, it's pretty easy for the kids to play with these. My two year old won't leave his alone and pushes it back or forward. Padding on handle - Here's where the Jeep Traveler Tandem really let me down. Within two days of owning the stroller and using it less than five times, the foam padding on the handle had cracked and broken. As soon as we saw this type of padding, we knew it would be trouble as it tends to wear easily and break off or become sticky. Jeep did offer to replace the stroller but we would have had to send in part of our first stroller (meaning we'd be without a stroller for a few weeks) and they would only ship to a USA address. Unfortunately, we live in Canada so we were out of luck and must live with this dysfunctional handle. In the end, it's an economical choice for a double stroller and folds up smaller than most. If this wasn't a stroller we use mainly when traveling, if it was my main stroller, I'd consider spending a bit more money on another product.
