If you have more than one little one on the way, or you’re having a second baby while you’re still swaddling your first, you probably have a lot of questions. Like, how will you get around with two kiddos in tow? That’s where a double stroller comes in.
 
The best double stroller for your family really depends on your personal situation. Consider how you’ll use a double stroller most often. If you need it for two infants, do both seats accommodate infant car seats? If you need it for a toddler and a baby, does the stroller have a high weight limit to accommodate older children? These are the kind of questions to ask yourself before purchasing a stroller made for two.
 
Here are the best double strollers for every type of family situation.

Best Double Strollers

Once your baby can safely rest in a near-flat position, they can start riding in the Baby Jogger City Mini 2 Double (they can ride in it even earlier with the purchase of some additional accessories, too). Each seat has a wide range of recline options, a five-point harness strap, and a UV 50 canopy (with windows to keep an eye on them).

The stroller folds down easily with only one step and is super compact once it’s collapsed completely. It also has lots of storage space and some great accessory options. Perfect for twin babies, each seat can support a child of up to 50 pounds.

If you want your kids to ride in luxury, go ahead and splurge on this stroller. It starts out as a single that comes with a bassinet for your infant (which can be used until they are 20 pounds or can lift up to their hands and knees) and a toddler seat for kids as early as 3 months old, as well as a whole bunch of great accessories.

If you’re having twins, or are ready for baby number two, you just have to purchase an attachment and extra seat, and if you have three kids, you can even add a step for them to stand on while you push all three around. This stroller is an investment, but it will last you for a very long time.

PROS:

  • Easy to use and push
  • Compatible with two infant car seats/bassinets
  • Versatile seating options
  • Easy one-step folding, self-stand, automatic lock
  • One-hand steering, easy turning (at least in a single mode)
  • LARGE canopy with good ventilation
  • Good wheels that handle many types of terrain

CONS:

  • It weighs 27 pounds which may feel heavy for some parents
  • Expensive

Key Features:

  • Extendable, zip out canopy

  • Extra-large, easy-access basket
  • Included Bassinet

Specification:

  • Brand: UPPAbaby
  • Model: Vista V2 Stroller

Baby products aren’t cheap, so there is no shame in searching for a good deal on a quality product, like this one. If you have a Graco infant carrier with Click Connect features, you can take out one (or both) of the stroller seats and then easily move your infant from the car to the stroller without disturbing them.

With its stadium seat design, each seat has its own recline, which makes it great for siblings who have different reclining needs. The seats also have convertible safety straps so you can choose to keep them in a five-point harness and change to a three-point strap when they’re a little older. And, if that’s not enough, you can fold it down with just one hand. The stroller holds two children weighing up to 40 pounds each.

PROS:

  • Inexpensive
  • Has lots of storage space and adjustable harness as your child’s needs
  • It is easy to fold up with one hand and no bending leaving one hand free for baby.
  • It is versatile.
  • Can be used with car seats

CONS:

  • Can be difficult to hook car seats into the stroller
  • With added weight the wheels don’t move as well

Key Features:

  • An extra-large storage basket provides room for all essentials to keep your hands free.
  • Multi-Tier Seating
  • Parent’s tray with storage
  • Removable Child's Tray
  • One-hand, standing fold with automatic storage latch folds easily, leaving one hand free for everything else.

  • Brand: Graco
  • Model: DuoGlider Double Stroller

The Thule Urban Glide 2 Double earns the very good score in this review impressing us with the overall quality, maneuverability, and ease of use. This stroller has a 3-wheel jogger design, is easy to fold, and has a great self-stand feature. The Urban Glide 2 Double is easy to maneuver in tight spaces and over uneven terrain. You can use it to jog and take it up and over curbs with ease. The passenger seats have storage pockets, large canopies, independent recline, and padded 5-point harnesses.

This stroller isn’t the best choice for parents expecting twins because it only accepts one infant car seat. It is also somewhat heavy, but it is the lightest in the top 3 scoring strollers, and it is lighter than the similar BOB Revolution Flex Duallie. However, the Urban Glide 2 Double is a great everyday stroller packed with features that let you run, and run errands when the mood strikes, while keeping your baby cozy.

PROS:

  • Easy to push over any terrain
  • Jogging ready
  • Easy to use

CONS:

  • Only works with one car seat
  • Heavier

Key Features:

  • An all-terrain double stroller perfect for jogging or strolling through town
  • Swivel front wheel locks into place for jogging
  • Large 16" rear wheels plus suspension for an ultra smooth ride
  • One-handed, compact fold to easily store and transport
  • Ergonomic, adjustable handlebar with twist hand brake

Specification:

  • Brand: Thule
  • Model: Urban Glide 2

The BOB Revolution Flex Duallie is a 3-wheel jogging stroller that has everything parents want for two kids with the bonus of all-terrain tires and adjustable suspension for comfort. The BOB has a high score for maneuverability and impressive results for quality and ease of use. While it doesn’t accept two car seats, so it isn’t a great option for twins, it does work for children up to 50 pounds in each seat and will take one car seat with an adapter (sold separately).

The car seat adapter for the BOB requires a strap attachment which isn’t our favorite, but using the adapter buys you eight months additional strolling time with the BOB (you should not jog with children under eight months old, and you should check with your pediatrician before starting new adventures). The BOB is also awkward to carry with no real handle. But, overall, it is a good choice for everyday use and getting off the beaten path with rugged tires and durable long-lasting quality.

PROS:

  • Excellent over rough terrain
  • Jogging potential
  • Higher quality

CONS:

  • Higher priced double jogger
  • Heavy and large

Key Features:

  • Suspension system & air filled tires provide an ultra-smooth ride over any terrain
  • Adjustable handlebar creates the perfect Fit for parents of all heights
  • 6 storage pockets & extra-large cargo basket
  • Ultra-padded compression seat with infinite recline sits fully upright for all-day comfort
  • Compatible with most major brand car seats with the use of a BOB infant car seat adapter

Specification:

  • Brand: BOB
  • Model: Gear Revolution Flex 3.0

The Evenflo Pivot Xpand Double is a full-size double inline stroller with much in common with some higher-end award winners. This versatile stroller works with two infant car seats, two toddler seats and two modified seats that act as bassinets. You can face these seats back or forward and use any variety of seating you need to meet your needs for twins or children of multiple ages. We love the versatility of this double and how similar it is to more expensive options that could be outside the budget of many growing families.

The Evenflo isn’t the highest quality, and while not bad, it is a little wobbly compared to more expensive options. It is also on the heavier side, but certainly not the heaviest in the group and not prohibitive compared to some of the competition. Despite some minor hiccups, we think most families will appreciate what the Pivot has to offer and how much it resembles the competition in looks and functionality, but with a significantly lower price that brings this style of stroller into the realm of possibility for every family.

PROS:

  • Lower price
  • Easy to use
  • A great mic

CONS:

  • Harder to push and turn
  • Heavy

Key Features:

  • Single to Double Stroller
  • 4 Modes of Use
  • Extra-Large Storage Basket
  • Multiple Handy Features
  • Trusted for Nearly 100 Years

Specification:

  • Brand: Evenflo
  • Model: Pivot Xpand

The Baby Trend Expedition Double is the least expensive double option with an above-average performance at an affordable price point. The Expedition is marketed as a jogging stroller and has rubber air-filled tires, padded seats, easy to use recline, and impressive maneuverability. While the Expedition doesn’t have the same attention to detail or use the same quality components as much of the competition, it offers what we believe is a reliable double stroller that gets the job done for a reasonable price that matches almost any budget. It even has a few extra features like a parent tray, cup holders and cinch pockets on the back of each seat.

Unfortunately, the Expedition Double does not accept infant car seats, so it isn’t a good choice for little ones under six months, and you can’t jog with a baby until eight to twelve months. However, if the price is a factor, and you want the freedom of moving off-road with the occasional jog, then the Expedition Double is one to consider with the bonus of having a budget-friendly list price.

PROS:

  • Easy to push and turn
  • Occasional jogger
  • Very inexpensive

CONS:

  • Low quality
  • Harder to use

Key Features:

  • Designed for children from 6-50 pounds (each child)
  • Multi-position seat recline with 5-point safety harness.
  • 16" rear and 12" front all-terrain, rubber pneumatic bicycle tires
  • Locking front swivel wheels with foot-activated rear brake system and quick and easy compact fold
  • Lightweight, sturdy construction.

Specification:

  • Brand: Baby Trend
  • Model: Expedition Double Jogger

The Hamax Outback is a wallet-friendly bike trailer you can use for strolling, jogging, or cross country skiing (with the right attachments). This stroller has an enclosed seating area, large storage bin, and simple attachment changes. We like the easy to turn front swivel wheel that negotiates tight spaces with ease, and we think the adjustable suspension and padded seating make for a comfortable ride for passengers. This trailer is a high-quality choice made with durable materials that will keep you moving for years to come for a variety of adventures.

The Outback may be more difficult to use than some of the competition, and its size and weight make it more difficult to lift and stow. But, we think the significant savings over the Thule Chariot Cross 2 will intrigue any parents looking for a stroller of this type who have already considered the weight restrictions.

PROS:

  • Ease to push and turn
  • Nice quality, Well-built.
  • There is a large compartment in the back for a lot of items
  • The bench seats are solid
  • The stroller wheel is heavy and solid

CONS:

  • Heavy and large
  • Doesn't accept car seats

Key Features:

  • Bike Trailer, Stroller, Jogger* in one
  • 1-Click Transition Between Kits
  • Hassle-free Bike Hitch Installation
  • Quick-Fold Cockpit & Quick-Release Wheels
  • Adjustable Suspension, Push Bar, & Head Rests
  • UV-Protected Windows, Sunroof, & Coverings
  • EN/ASTM Certified, 2016 Red Dot Award Winner

Specification:

  • Brand: Hamax
  • Model: Hamax Outback

Thule Sleek Double

The Thule Sleek Double is a sharp-looking inline stroller that can accommodate three children with the right additions. This Thule has many nice features including covered storage, adjustable handlebar, all-wheel suspension, and ample canopies. The Sleek has a nice overall look with a variety of seating options including 2 infant car seats, 2 toddler seats, 2 bassinets, or any combination of these with the addition of a roller board for a third child to ride.

The Sleek is heavier and larger than much of the competition, but it is smaller when folded than the UPPAbaby Vista Double its closest competitor in style and score. Its cumbersome build can make it challenging for some to lift and stow in smaller spaces. It is also one of the more expensive options in this review making it a potential no-go for families with smaller budgets or who want a stroller good for running or going off-road. Overall, the Sleek is “sleek” and has a lot to offer (including good for twins) with a price and size that are both lower than similar competitors.

PROS:

  • Covered storage
  • Easy to push and turn
  • 2 car seat compatible

CONS:

  • Price
  • Heavy
  • Not the smallest

Key Features:

  • Fingertip control control your music, calls and voice assistant simply through intuitive touchpad technology built into both True Wireless earbuds
  • Stay aware transparent hearing keeps you aware of your surroundings, allowing you to easily listen and chat wirelessly Without having to remove your earbuds

Specification:

  • Brand: Sennheiser Consumer Audio
  • Model: Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless

If you have kids that are one or two years apart in age, this stroller will work wonders for your family. You can configure it in a variety of ways, including to produce two infant carriers, a regular stroller seat combined with an infant carrier, two traditional seats, or one traditional seat and a platform—this is perfect for the toddler who refuses to ride in a stroller because they’re “not a baby”.

The stroller folds up easily and compactly and has ample storage space for a diaper bag. Each seat fits a child weighing up to 50 pounds.

PROS:

  • Easier to push and turn

Double Stroller Buying Guide & FAQ

Of course, when you’re spending a minimum of a couple of hundred dollars on a new stroller, it’s important that you’ve got all bases covered, so we’ll give you a full rundown on how we made our selections, features to look for and answer some of the most common questions from shoppers so you can get it right from the offset.

In terms of features, the majority of the strollers we came across in our search for the best on the market in 2019, they’re all pretty much on par. The biggest differentiation are often in size and price points. If you spend a majority of your time in and around busy areas, hitting the tarmac more often than nature trails, you’d probably be best suited to one of the smaller models, such as the Jeep Destination or the Joovy Scooter. If size isn’t a concern for you then the Baby Trend Expedition is a front runner for us. If you’re lucky to have cycling and walking trails within easy reach and you’re serious about kick-starting a healthier lifestyle for the entire family, the 3-in-1 from Clevr might take your fancy.

How We Chose Our Selection Of The Best Double Jogging Strollers

With most of the options on the market having a lot of similarities, choosing the right stroller can often come down to personal preference. It’s important that you ask yourself questions such as: what my budget is, what weight capacity do I need and what is the main purpose of my stroller before you even consider the features. In order to make your choice easier, we included a range of strollers to suit different preferences based on price point, brand, and reviews. We understand that looking after two or more children doesn’t exactly come cheap, so we included models to suit all budgets from a number of well-known brands that you’ll trust. As with everything, one of our biggest criteria is the performance, which is why we look beyond the features and sift through thousands of reviews from verified buyers to save you time and give you a well-rounded insight into our top picks.

Features To Look For In Double Jogging Strollers

Wheels – One of the key differences between regular strollers and jogging strollers are the wheels. Not only do they need to much bigger, but it’s also best if the front wheel swivels for manoeuvring in busy places while you’ll want it to lock into place for when you’re jogging so that you can keep a nice steady pace.

Tires – The traction you’ll need on your tires will be dependent on where you’ll be heading out to most. Deep ridges will provide plenty of traction if you’re planning on riding on rugged and slippery surfaces. Whereas, smooth wheels would be preferable for ease of use in crowded places.

Suspension System – Ideally, you double jogging stroller will come complete with a decent suspension system so that both you and your children can be comfortable if you jog on off-road trails. The suspension will help to absorb any shock from bumps along the way, something you’ll be extremely thankful

Seats – When you’re purchasing a stroller, the comfort of your babies is, of course, one of the most important features. For the ultimate comfort, you’ll want two independent seats that can recline to meet the needs of your children. Ideally, a seat will be able to be reclined to multiple positions with additional cushioning.

Canopies – A canopy will come as standard on any good stroller, but what can set some models apart from others is the type of canopy. If each seat has a separate canopy, it will likely make life easier for you when you’re out and about, because after all, it’s not always easy to keep both children happy. It’s also worth paying a few extras dollars for a canopy with a 50+UPF canopy to protect your children from any harmful rays.

Safety harness – A 5-point safety harness for each of your little riders comes highly recommended. A 5-point harness is best to keep your children safe and secure in their seats, something that is crucial for when you start to rack up some speed or take on bumpy trails.

Hand brake – Because of the potential speeds and inclines that are involved with jogging, the more safety features, the better. If you can increase your budget to allow for the added feature of a hand brake, it will give you some extra peace of mind when it comes to stopping safely and controlling your speed downhill.

Size – The last thing you want to do is order a stroller that doesn’t fit into the trunk of your car if you’re planning on travelling with it, so before you hit the checkout, be sure to double check the size when it’s collapsed to ensure you can fit in it.

Car seat compatibility – While it’s not really recommended to go jogging with car seats attached to your stroller, a number of models featured on our review do offer this feature. If you plan on taking a child under 6 months out in jogging, it’s important that you take the time to consider the quality of this feature to ensure the safest possible ride for your baby on board.
