Editors' Choice: Best Side-by-Side
Thule Urban Glide 2
Easy to push over any terrain
Easy to use
Only works with one car seat
The Thule Urban Glide 2
earned the highest score in this comparative double stroller review and an Editors' Choice award impressing us with the overall quality, maneuverability, and ease of use. This option has a 3-wheel jogger design, is easy to fold, and has a bonus self-standing feature. The Urban Glide 2 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. This option isn't the best choice for parents expecting twins as 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 BOB Revolution Flex Duallie
. Overall, the Urban Glide 2 is a great everyday stroller packed with features that let you run and take adventures off-road when the mood strikes while keeping baby cozy and protected from the sun.

Editors' Choice: Best Inline Double
UPPAbaby Vista Double
Easy to use and push
Compatible with two infant car seats
Versatile seating options
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 stylish, easy to use option offers a variety of seating configurations including two infant car seat options making it great for twins, multiples, and single rider. This stroller sports foam filled rubber tires, the biggest storage bin in the review with the largest maximum allowable weight (30lbs), 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. This stroller may not be the best choice for parents with limited funds. The Vista has a higher than average price, but we think it is worth the money if you can afford it given its higher quality, efficient design, and overall seating versatility.

Best Bang for the Buck
Easy to use
Harder to push and turn
Doesn't take any car seats
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 quality product suitable for multiple ages 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 deep 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 testers liked the Joovy Scooter.

Best Value on a Budget
Baby Trend Expedition Double
Easy to push and turn
The Baby Trend Expedition Double
is the least expensive double in this review which helped it earn a Best Value award with 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 second highest score for maneuverability. While the Expedition may not have the same attention to detail, or use the same level quality components as much of the competition, for the price, it offers what we believe is a reliable double stroller that gets the job done. 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 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 a baby until 8-12 months. However, if gear price is a concern, and you want the freedom of moving off-road with the occasional jog, then the Expedition Double is one to consider.

Top Pick for All-Terrain
BOB Revolution Flex Duallie
Excellent over rough terrain
Higher priced double jogger
Heavy and large
The BOB Revolution Flex Duallie
is another 3-wheel jogging stroller that happens to have everything parents need for multiple children with the bonus of all-terrain tires and adjustable suspension. This stroller earned a second place rank in this review and received an Editors' Choice award. The BOB has a high score for maneuverability and impressive scores 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.

Top Pick for Outdoor Adventure
Thule Chariot Cross 2
Versatile outdoor adventures
Easy to push and turn
No car seat compatibility
The Thule Chariot Cross 2
is a unique product designed for outdoor adventures with included strolling and bike trailer kits standard. The Cross 2 does not disappoint because it isn't an ordinary stroller. Though it isn't a traditional double stroller, it is a great buy for parents that like being outdoors and want to include their children on every fun adventure. This product replaces the Thule Chariot Cougar 2 with some impressive upgrades like lower weight, better storage, and reclining seats. If you want to stroll, bike, ski, or jog, this product will not disappoint and is the only one in our review that can do it all. The Cross 2 may not be a true contender for the traditional family, but it wasn't designed to stroll through city streets or the local mall.

Best Frame Stroller for Twins
Accepts two car seats of different brands
Light and compact
Limited lifespan of 6-9 months
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
Light and compact
Hard to push and turn
Harder to use
The Joovy Caboose Ultralight Graphite
is a little different than anything else we tested. 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 always to be moving, then this sit and stand style is a good fit.
