Re: Double Jogging Stroller . . .Which one to get?

My parents have a double bob for when the babysit the kids and it is amazing. I love it! The biggest downside is that it is just so huge and heavy. It is not easy to transport. We have a maclaren twin for daily trips that we love. Obviously not for jogging though!

I have a Mountain Buggy and while you "can" jog with it, I would never buy it again. The canopy is way too small.

Re: Double Jogging Stroller . . .Which one to get?

I have had the Bob Double Revolution stroller for 4.5 years and STILL LOVE IT! It has been a great stroller. I would TOTALLY recommend it!

I also have the Phil & Teds sport stroller with the 2nd seat in the back. I love it too, but really just keep it in the back of my car for running errands, walks in the park, etc....I would definitely not feel comfortable running with it.

They are both awesome strollers though! I couldn't part with either!

Try looking on Craigslist in your area if there is one. That is where I scored my Phil & Teds as I know they are $$$ brand new.

Good luck!!!

I agree about the P and T's, your shins will hit the lower seat, so it's not a great option for jogging. We have one and if I am walking very quickly it does this, but nonetheless I still like it a lot as a double stroller (given the other options!).

Love my BOB double. It was the best investment I ever made. I know it is wide but everything is handicap accessible now so I have never had a problem at stores or out and about. We use it every single day and the boys love it.
