Double Jogging Stroller

Fantastic all around stroller

I wish I'd gone with this stroller from the beginning!
I wanted a double stroller I could use for running as well as day to day errands, trips to the parks and zoos. This stroller fits the bill.
It was easy to assemble, just put the wheels on, fill with air and go. It has a two-step fold, giving you the option to leave it partially folded with all three wheels on the ground (great if they get dirty) or to fold it more compactly with all three wheels together (you can also remove the wheels easily for more compact storage). To lock the stroller in a closed position you simply wrap the jogging strap up around the handlebar, back down near the brake bar and velcro. It is a bit heavy as most 3 wheel strollers are but I take it in and out of my van with little trouble.
With my rear van seats folded flat it fits horizontally quite easily. With the seats up it fits vertically with little room to spare.
The seat reclines are great and operate with two clips per seat. The sunshades are large enough for people in hot, sunny areas and the drawstring on each one is great. For me, the drawstring means my 3 year old can't fiddle with the sunshade which drives me crazy. Each one also has a large viewing window covered with a flap.
For running the front wheel locks into place. It delivers a smooth ride on every run and has easily adjustable suspension with two settings, one for lighter weight children and one for heavier kids and/or jogging or all terrain use.
In stores it handles tight corners easily. I actually found that attempting to take corners with my usual 3-6 point turns as I had with other doubles.
The handlebar is high enough and far enough away from the wheels that it is nearly impossible to kick the stroller at a walk or run, even with longer legs like mine.
The harnesses are easy to use and adjust quickly. Each seat has two mesh pockets on either side for toys, snacks and sippy cups. Each seat also has a large mesh pocket on the back which works great for diapers, keys, etc. Although the 'low boy' basket is difficult to access for larger items such as my JJ Cole Mode diaper bag, I love how I can leave smaller items in it while the stroller is folded.
I've had children of all weights in the stroller from my usual 42lb and 16lb kid combination to a 42lb and 35lb combination of kids and even only having my 42lb child in one seat, this stroller pushes straight and easy.
All in all it's fantastic, my only complaint being how hard the storage basket is to get into. The quality of the stroller means it will last well beyond by needs.

I just got this stroller and I kept shopping thinking it wouldn't fit my everyday needs. Thanks for a positive view to the contrary! I will give BOB a shot before getting him any competition.

The SUV of strollers
We recently purchased our fourth stroller for the imminent arrival of our second child.        1) Zooper Hula - Single heavyweight infant stroller   2) Chicco Capri - Single lightweight toddler stroller   3) Dual Burley - this is a trailer technically, but since we bought the running handle, it fits my category of kid transportation via pushing   4) BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller      We bought ours at the local REI …

SIZE:   I will start off by saying that if you are looking for a compact double stroller, then you probably don't want a double jogger.  The BOB Revolution Duallie will not fold up tiny, but it does fold down very nicely for its size.  I drive what I affectionately call the world's smallest SUV (Land Rover Freelander) and the duallie fits in the cargo area of it.  It also fits through all standard doorways.  What it doesn't fit through, however, are the ever crowded …

The stroller folds easily but it does take up quite a bit of space in the trunk of my station wagon.  I mainly use this stroller for walks around the neighborhood, or when I will be at the zoo or arboretum for most of the day.        This is good for tall children and parents.  My 110cm child sits in it comfortably and my tall husband can run with it comfortably.        I prefer to use this stroller outdoors.  It fits through standard …

The second baby is on the way, so this stroller has not seen full duty. Feels very much like our single BOB, which is just about perfect.
