Great for light duty

I purchased this double stroller after looking at several doubles that would fit an infant carrier. I loved how lightweight it was and how the freedom of movement harness would hold my older child without making her feel tied down.
It did great in stores and on pavement but it was terrible with uneven or bumpy surfaces. The brake, which is actually a loop you pull and twist on the frame, never seemed to line up with both rear wheels easily and it usually took several minutes to get the wheels in the right position to lock easily. 
The stroller folded and unfolded easily enough and fit in an average sized trunk. It folded flat so I could place items on top of it but it did fill the floor of my trunk so tall items didn't fit as well. Also during storage the cup holder frequently came off.
I loved the ability to remove both trays or swing them open. The recline is almost flat and is controlled with a sliding plastic piece. The harnesses went all the way around the children and were anchored to the seat by the waist, which was nice but I found that my older child at 38" tall was really struggling to fit into the shoulder part. Because of that I resented the fact that you had to use the entire harness and couldn't remove the shoulder portion like you can with others.
The storage basket was easily accessible and large enough to use for light shopping. I found myself using the loops on the handle(for Peg Perego's rain cover and other accessories purchased seperately) for bags but only if  both kids were in the stroller, if not the stroller would tip.
All in all this is a good stroller for an urban mom who doesn't plan on taking her kids off the pavement. It works well for travel and is lightweight enough for those who may have to frequently carry it up flights of stairs but I found it inadequate for a very active lifestyle.
