Features

The Thule Chariot Cross is a great double stroller if you like to go on outdoor adventures. It is a side-by-side stroller and handles rough terrains with ease while keeping your children low to the ground. In addition to the typical strolling function, this stroller is unique because you can add attachments to take your children biking, jogging, or skiing.

While this is a larger stroller, it does maneuver quite easily, but it is not as compact as other strollers, making it a poor choice if you are trying to save space during transportation. The Chariot Cross is not compatible with any infant car seats, but you can place an infant directly into the stroller. The entire seating area is enclosed, so you can protect your children from bugs and the elements. Instead of a sun canopy, you can attach a piece of fabric to the enclosure.

On the back of the stroller is a decent amount of storage, and there are some additional storage pockets inside the cabin which are out of the children’s reach.

Warranty

This stroller comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Pros

  • Attachments are available for biking, jogging, and skiing
  • Great for strolling outdoors or on rough terrains
  • Enclosed seating

Cons

  • Very large
  • Not compatible with infant car seat
  • Expensive

No products found.

Features

The Delta Children LX is a side-by-side stroller that is compact and lightweight but still sturdy enough to keep your babies safe and secure. It is an umbrella stroller, meaning it is made to be easily transported everywhere you go. Each seat has its own sun canopy similar to those on a single stroller, and the back of the stroller includes storage and a cupholder. Each seat can be reclined to a different level, so kids can nap in this stroller if necessary.

Warranty

The Delta stroller comes with a one-year warranty.

Pros

  • Lightweight and portable
  • Has a cup holder
  • Reclining seats
  • Very affordable

Cons

  • Not a lot of storage
  • Not compatible with infant car seats

No products found.

Features

This double stroller is sturdier than an umbrella stroller and provides a lot more storage. It also includes two cup holders. The seats can be reclined to any position, so your kids can always be comfortable and could nap in this stroller as well. There is one sun canopy which covers both children rather than an individual canopy for each, but the canopy is large and shields both children from the sun nicely. Pushing this stroller is very easy. You can even push it with one hand if needed, which is an accomplishment for a double stroller holding two children.

While it is larger and sturdier than most umbrella strollers, this Joovy stroller can be easily folded with one hand and is compact, making it a great stroller to keep in the car. Its lightweight and compact design will mean sacrificing some features and durability though. For instance, the wheels are not made from high quality materials and aren’t the best choice for rough terrain, and there aren’t any solid trays on the stroller.

Warranty

This stroller has a two-year limited warranty.

Pros

  • Good amount of storage
  • Sun canopy is large and effective
  • Easy to push and steer

Cons

  • Plastic wheels
  • No trays
  • Not compatible with infant car seats

No products found.

Features

This Graco stroller is an inline sit-and-stand stroller. The front seat is meant to hold a younger child. You can either use the seat in front or easily insert your Graco infant car seat. The back includes a small seat with a buckle, but the child in back can also stand on the stroller platform. The back tray with the cupholder pivots, so it won’t be in the way while the child climbs into the stroller. This is one of the most versatile strollers we looked at, handling most seating combinations you can think of. Storage is easy, and you can fold the stroller with one hand.

This may not be the best choice if you have twins because the stroller is really designed to hold an infant or younger child in front and an older child in back.

Warranty

This Graco stroller comes with a one-year limited warranty.

Pros

  • Affordable
  • Versatile
  • Sit-and-stand
  • Holds an infant car seat

Cons

  • Only holds one infant car seat
  • Not ideal for twins
  • Only compatible with Graco

No products found.

Features

The Baby Trend stroller is another inline sit-and-stand stroller, but this stroller can hold two infant car seats, making it a good choice for parents who are expecting twins. The stroller is compatible with several car seat brands which is very convenient if you already own or have picked out your car seats. As your children get older, this stroller can grow with them. You can adjust the stroller to have two seats, or the back seat can be removed to allow one child to stand.

Each seat has its own sun canopy, and there are three trays with cup holders—one for each child and one for the parent. While this stroller is lightweight and easy to fold and transport, it is not the highest quality stroller on the market. The back seat can also be a little bit cramped for children around age two or older.

Warranty

This stroller is covered by a limited warranty for 180 days after purchase.

Pros

  • Holds up to two infant car seats from several brands
  • Each seat has a sun canopy and tray with cupholder
  • Lightweight and easy to fold with one hand

Cons

  • Not highest quality
  • Back seat can be cramped for older children

No products found.

Features

This side-by-side stroller is a good choice for joggers. It can handle different terrains and maneuvers well due to the three-wheel design. The tires are rubber and filled with air, making them durable and helping them to absorb shock. The jogging mode enables you to lock the front wheel so it won’t swivel, but you can still easily steer the stroller. This provides safety by preventing the stroller from darting in the wrong direction if you hit a bump.

The stroller is rather wide, but the easy steering helps make up for that, and there is plenty of storage available. Each seat has its own sun canopy, and the seats can be easily reclined for comfort. Unlike many side-by-side strollers, the BOB holds two infant car seats, but you will need to purchase the adapter separately. With the adapter, the BOB stroller is compatible with all major car seat brands.

The BOB stroller folds in two easy steps and can be stored in the car, but it does take up a little bit more space due to the larger tires.

Warranty

The frame of the BOB stroller is covered under warranty for five years. The fabric and components are covered for one year.

Pros

  • Great for jogging
  • Holds two infant car seats
  • High quality

Cons

  • Must purchase car seat adapter separately
  • Feels large when pushing around
  • Not as compact for storage as some other strollers

No products found.

Features

This stroller is lightweight and compact, fitting through most standard doorways, but it is not as easy to maneuver as some of the larger strollers. The storage is nice and can be accessed from the front, sides, or back, which is unique. Each seat on this side-by-side stroller can be adjusted to lean back and has its own sun canopy. Due to product recalls, this stroller is no longer compatible with infant car seats.

Warranty

This Britax stroller is covered by a one-year warranty.

Pros

  • Lightweight and compact
  • Nice storage
  • Fits through most doorways

Cons

  • Lower quality
  • Not compatible with infant car seats
  • Difficult to push and turn

No products found.

Features

This high quality side-by-side holds up to two infant car seats and accepts several brands of car seats, but you will need an adapter to use brands other than Mountain Buggy. It is easy to push and turn and is very narrow (the same width as a single stroller) while comfortably holding two children. The seats are nicely padded, the fabrics are nice, and the tires are air-filled rubber. All of these elements reflect the high quality design of this stroller, and the tires make it a good choice for various terrains.

Warranty

The Mountain Buggy is covered under a one-year warranty.

Pros

  • High quality
  • Very narrow side-by-side
  • Holds two infant car seats

Cons

  • Must purchase an adapter to use most car seat brands
  • Expensive

No products found.

Features

This side-by-side stroller is easy to use and fairly high quality. While it does accept two infant car seats, you need to add the adapter to do so. Also, the stroller will not fold with the adapter attached, which makes it a bit less portable. The stroller is not compatible with car seats from other brands. It has good storage, individual canopies for each seat, and reclining options.

Warranty

This stroller has a two-year warranty.

Pros

  • Good quality
  • Can hold two infant car seats

Cons

  • Needs adapter to hold car seats
  • Stroller won’t fold with car seat adapter attached
  • Not compatible with other brands of car seat
  • Plastic wheels

No products found.

Features

This is a sturdy, high quality jogger. It won’t shake when you run and maintains its stability due, in part, to the nice rubber tires. It is equipped with plenty of storage, a large canopy, and a speaker that can connect to a headphone jack to play music or audiobooks while you push it around.

Warranty

This stroller is covered by a 180-day warranty.

Pros

  • Great for jogging
  • Has a built-in speaker
  • Great value

Cons

  • Large, may not fit through doorways
  • Does not hold infant car seats

The Verdict

The best double stroller for your family will depend on your needs and lifestyle. If you are expecting twins, you will need a stroller that can hold two car seats. In this case, we recommend the Baby Trend Sit & Stand Double Stroller which is an affordable option that will grow with your children. If you have one older child and are expecting baby number two, we like the Graco Roomfor2 Stand & Ride Stroller. But if you already have an infant car seat that is not Graco brand, the Baby Trend Sit & Stand is also a good option. If you are a jogger, you might consider the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie Jogging Stroller.

For a very affordable and portable option, an umbrella stroller is a good one to keep in the car. We like the Delta Children LX Side-by-Side Stroller. Of course, if you plan to do more intense activities, like biking, then the Thule Chariot Cross Multisport Trailer is the one for you.
