Best double stroller for a tall daddy?

Hey mamas, I was just given a gift card to buy a double stroller, since I'm expecting #2 any day now (18 mos. Younger than DD). Dh is 6'5" and as a hard time pushing our single stroller due to his height. Also, one that folds up small woud be ideal becase it needs to fit in the trunk of our honda civic. Any suggestions?

Chicco just came out with a double that the handle adjusts for different heights. I think it's called the together stroller. It's really nice!!!

What is your budget? You would needs handles at least 42" high for it to be comfortable for tall people to push.

I have a Baby Jogger City Select with the extra seat (doubles kit) and the handle telescopes out very far so I think it would be great for a tall guy. My DH is 6" and doesn't have to put it all the way on the highest setting! Plus the second seat isn't "under' the first seat like the Phil&Ted stroller, so his legs wouldn't kick it.

www.babygizmo.com does some great video reviews on youtube including height of the handle and ease of use for taller people as well as how well kids of different sizes fit in the stroller. Thats in addition to all the regular stuff....opening and closing, under basket size, size when closed etc. hope this helps!

I just picked up a Britax B Ready- If you get it off Amazon right now, they have a special. You get 100.00 off the stroller and a FREE infant carrier / base! The handle is pretty adjustable imho.

We got this a couple weeks ago too and LOVE it! However, it doesn't fold up very small

really? To me it folds up way smaller than our single Chico stroller. (the full size one.)

Re: Best double stroller for a tall daddy?

I have a single Baby Jogger Elite, but I'm pretty sure it's the same height as the double and the Baby Jogger City Mini double... DH can push it with no problems and he's 6'4.
