Editors' Choice: Best Side-by-Side
Thule Urban Glide 2
The Thule Urban Glide 2
earned the Editors' Choice award with the highest score in this comparative double stroller review impressing us with its overall quality and ease of use. With a 3-wheeled side-by-side design it is easy to fold with a bonus self-standing feature. It is easy to maneuver through doorways, around corners, and over rough terrain. You can jog with it and take it up and over curbs with relative ease. The passenger seats have inside storage pockets, large canopies, independent recline, and padded 5-point harnesses. The handbrake is a nice touch and the only one in this review. The downside is this stroller only accepts one infant car seat so it won't be a good choice for parents of twins. It is also somewhat heavy, but still the lightest in the top 3 scoring strollers in this review. Overall, the Urban Glide 2 is a great everyday stroller packed with features that lets you run and take adventures off-road when the mood strikes.

Editors' Choice: Best Inline Double
UPPAbaby Vista Double
The UPPAbaby Vista Double
is a standout stroller that earned a 2nd place rank and quickly became the stroller of choice with testers, earning it an Editors' Choice award. This easy to use stroller offers a variety of seating configurations including two infant car seat attachment options making it great for twins, multiples, or even a single rider. This stroller sports foam filled rubber tires, the biggest storage bin in the review with the largest maximum allowable weight (30 pounds), a telescoping handlebar, and easy fold. While the Vista is not an all-terrain stroller, it does manage uneven terrain better than much of the competition thanks to all-wheel suspension and larger wheels. Even though the Vista sports a higher than average price, we think it is worth the money given the quality materials and versatile seating for up to 3 possible passengers.

Best Bang for the Buck
The Joovy Scooter X2
walks away with a Best Value award thanks to a great combination of higher score and lower price. This stroller is a user friendly product that draws you in with bright colors, fun features, and functionality in a way you didn't think possible for a product with a price this low. The Scooter is a nice quality product good for multiples or older twins, as it does not accept any
infant car seats. This side-by-side design with inset front wheels helps it negotiate corners and narrow doorways with ease. The large shared canopy, inside mesh stow pockets, giant storage bin and dual pockets hanging off the back provide all day comfort and convenience. The Scooter has nice reclining seats with adjustable leg rests, all-wheel suspension, belly bar, and easy to use brakes. Given its overall value and plethora of features, it's easy to see why it earned a Best Value award.

Best Value on a Budget
Baby Trend Expedition Double
The Baby Trend Expedition Double
is the least expensive double in this review and it placed 12 of 18 earning it a Best Value award for above average performance at an affordable price point. The Expedition is technically sold as a jogging stroller and sports rubber pneumatic tires, padded seats, easy to use recline, and the third highest score for maneuverability.While the Expedition may not have the same attention to detail, or use the same level of quality components as the much of the competition, for the price it offers what we believe is a reliable double stroller that gets the job done with a few extra features like a parent tray, 2 cup holders and nice cinch pockets on the back of each seat. Unfortunately, the Expedition Double is not compatible with any infant car seats so it isn't a good choice for babies under 6 months and you can't jog with baby until 8-12 months. However, if price is a concern, and you want the freedom of moving off-road and the potential occasional jog, then the Expedition Double is one to look at.

Top Pick for All-Terrain
BOB Revolution Flex Duallie
The BOB Revolution Flex Duallie
is another 3-wheel jogging stroller that happens to have everything parents need for multiple children with the added bonus of all-terrain tires and adjustable suspension. This stroller earned a second place rank in this review and earned an Editors' Choice award. The BOB has a great score for maneuverability and impressive scores for quality and ease of use. While the BOB 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 accept one car seat with an adapter sold separately.

Top Pick for Outdoor Adventure
Thule Chariot Cougar 2
The Thule Chariot Cougar 2
is a unique product with style and design features that make it great for outdoor adventures. The Chariot 2 did not disappoint us even though it had trouble keeping up with the other products, primarily because it isn't an ordinary stroller. The main categories where the Chariot struggled were areas where it just wasn't meant to excel. This product is heavier and larger than others in the review, but its size is what makes it so good at outdoor fun and gives it versatility to do what the other products couldn't. If you want to bike, ski, or jog, this product will not disappoint and is the only one in our review that can do it all. It won our Top Pick Award for Versatility in our jogging stroller review
. The Chariot might not have ranked in the top tier of products, but whatever it lacked, it more than made up for in attributes that make outdoor activities awesome.

Best Frame Stroller for Twins
The Joovy Twin Roo+
is a dedicated frame stroller that accepts two infant car seats of almost any brand. This product wasn't included in this review because it was unlikely that it would manage to do well compared to strollers that offer more (like canopies and seats). However, that doesn't mean this stroller doesn't have a place in the baby gear line up of parents expecting twins. Because many of the double strollers only accept one infant car seat, and some don't accept any, the Joovy Twin Roo+
fills a gap in the product line up. This product is easy to use, lightweight, compact when folded, with storage and 4 cup holders. It allows babies to face either direction and the seats sit low enough for parents to see both. This stroller has a $130 price, which means new parents can save some cash by purchasing the Roo+ over the more expensive products that won't accept two car seats. The Twin bridges the gap between birth and the end of infant car seat use when parents can make a more informed decision on their remaining strolling years. If you are expecting twins and money is tight, or you aren't sure what kind of stroller is best for twins, then the Twin Roo+ can meet your needs without the big expense.

Best Sit and Stand Lightweight Stroller
Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite
The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite
is a little different than anything else we looked at. This stroller is the lightest option in the group, has an available back seat for purchase, and offers a cover for the back seat rider. The Caboose is easy to fold and lift, and it has everything a parent of multiples would need for a fun day out, without the hassle of a heavy clunky ride. At first blush this option didn't score well in comparison to much of the competition. But the more we used it and learned about it, the more we liked it. With a list price of $250 it is one of the cheaper options in the review and it has enough functionality and features to keep most parents and passengers happy on fun or quick trips out and about. If you have children of different ages, with one that seems to always be moving, then this sit and stand style is a good fit.
