Baby Jogger City Mini Double

I have had a lot of inquiries about double strollers so here is my review of the award-winning Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller. As a double stroller, the City Mini is lightweight and as narrow as it gets when it comes to a comfy side-by-side stroller that also takes an infant car seat. Keep in mind, this stroller is fantastic for city streets but it is not intended for jogging or rough roads, it is not an all-terrain stroller! The City Mini Double an be used  2 kids of different ages and needs (use a car seat for one and the regular seat for the other) but not with twins who both need a car seat. It is a double stroller with all the bells and whistles.

Features:

  • Quick-Fold Technology – 1-step, 2-handed fold, stands when folded, removable auto-lock so stroller stays closed when folded, compact fold
  • Dual swivel front wheels for quick and agile maneuverability but can also lock into place for long distance strolling
  • 8″ quick-release EVA wheels with sealed ball bearings
  • Padded seats recline to a near flat position with vented seat tops and retractable weather covers
  • Universal accessory mounting bracket – accessorize your stroller with ease – belly bar, car seat adapter, compact pram (bassinet), rain canopy, glider board for an older child to stand on
  • Large multi-position separate canopies with clear view windows and retractable weather covers
  • Rounded handlebar for pushing comfort
  • Front wheel suspension provides a smooth comfortable ride
  • Seat back storage compartments
  • Large under seat storage basket
  • Adjustable five-point safety harnesses with shoulder pads and buckle covers
  • Linked rear foot parking brake
  • Less than 30″ wide to fit through standard sized doors
  • 100 lb. weight capacity on stroller
  • 3 colors – black, red, green
  • Handle bar is not adjustable and set at a fairly high height so it may not be great for short or very tall people
  • Underneath storage basket is small and a little challenging to access when seats are upright but ever harder to access when seats are reclined
  • Wide for some narrow doors and hallways

What I love about the City Mini Double is that the seats recline to nearly flat so you can put a small baby in the stroller without a car seat. The canopies are separate so you can cover a sleeping child but not an awake one. The seats are padded and comfy for sitting in for a long time. Keep in mind, even though the 30″width is considered “narrow” it is still fairly wide since it does require 2 side by side seats.

The few cons about the City Mini Double are not enough reason to not buy the stroller unless the handlebar height is really an issue. There is a reason why this stroller is so highly rated and reviewed, it has everything a parent could ask for in a double stroller.
