What is the best double stroller? To find out, we tried out 17 different models. Then we asked our parent readers (2 million strong!) for their favorites. Which were easiest to use? Most bang for the buck? Yes, we've been researching and writing about double strollers since 1994. Here are our current recommendations.

FYI: We've been reviewing and rating products for the home and families since 1994. We don't take money or freebies from the brands we review. Our work is 100% reader-supported!

Best For Babies

Easy on the wallet
We loved the four configurations of this model—it is excellent for twin babies. Beat feature: can also hold two car seats. And the fold is super easy. Caveat: heavy (32 lbs.) and no height-adjustable handle.

Best For Babies: Graco Ready2Grow LX 2.0 Double Stroller

When shopping for a double stroller, the first consideration is what are the ages of your kids: are they the same age (twins) or do you have an older toddler and younger baby? 

This is important because some strollers are better suited for twins versus different aged kids. If you have twins, our top pick is the Graco Ready2Grow.

This relatively new model (it debuted in 2021) is the latest entry in Graco’s long-standing line of twin strollers. The star feature is the easy fold, or as Graco puts it: the Ready2Grow “rides like a double, folds like a single.” This clever design impressed us—the rear seat is intended for an infant . . .  or you can use two Graco infant car seats in the stroller.

Our parent readers loved this model overall. The four different configurations, including a standing platform, makes this one great for the zoo or a park outing. Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Versatile with four configurations.

• Great for two babies—holds two infant car seats.

• Easy to fold.

• Affordable.

• Cup holder.

• Rear seat rides higher, up near parent.

What Needs Work

• Not so great with older toddler/newborn situation. That’s because when a newborn is in a car seat in the upper position, the angle is too upright for a newborn (in our opinion).

• No height-adjustable handle.

• HEAVY at 32 lbs.

• Cup holder could be bigger.

• Can’t see the toddler up front when using an infant car seat in back.

Best Wagon-Style

Great for the zoo
A good solution for soccer games, outdoor outings or picnics, this double wagon has a reversible handle, generous storage and all-terrain wheels here. Dual canopies are excellent, but critics note it is heavy and the fold could be easier.

Best Wagon-Style: Evenflo Pivot Explore All-Terrain Stroller Wagon

Best known for its less expensive strollers, Evenflo jumped into the stroller wagon category with this affordable entry: the Pivot Explore All-Terrain Stroller Wagon. The key feature here we liked: the handle flips so you can push or pull from either side of the stroller wagon. That was impressive in our testing.

Stroller wagons are great for outdoor adventures: the zoo, picnics, etc. One place you can’t take them, unfortunately, is Disney. Stroller wagons are now banned in the land of the mouse. For the best strollers for Disney, check out our other article, the Best Strollers for Disney.

Here’s more on why this choice came out on top.

What We Liked

• Easy to set up.

• Two independent canopies for shade. You can shade one or both seats.

• Storage! This stroller wagon has both an undercarriage basket and traditional storage pockets. The basket attaches to either end of the wagon, which is nice.

• Good legroom for kiddos.

• Affordable. Some stroller wagons are priced like they emerged from a hotel mini bar. This one is much more reasonable.

• Removable snack tray.

• Wheels don’t go flat. Air tires are nice for bumpy terrain, but this stroller’s foam/plastic tires never go flat. That makes this stroller easier to love in the long term.

• Car seat compatibility (at least with Evenflo infant seats). This requires a separate adapter, however.

What Needs Work

• Heavy. At 34.7 lbs., the Pivot Explore All-Terrain Stroller Wagon is a beast to haul in and out of a trunk.

• Better with two kids than one. With only one child, we found the stroller wagon became unbalanced in our testing.

• No full canopy. Other stroller wagons have canopies that cover the entire stroller. This works better for older kiddos.

• No sleeping. Some stroller wagons double as playpens that enable kids to take a nap. The maker of this stroller wagon says no to naps. And the footwell inside the wagon makes napping difficult away.

• Fold could be easier.

Best Easy to Push

Comfortable seats
The massive storage basket here won over our testers, but we also like the canopy and smooth suspension. And yes, it is still easy on the wallet.

Best Easy to Push: Joovy ScooterX2

Double strollers come in two formats: front/back and side-by-side.

The latter are easier to push, in our opinion (based on years of research and testing).

For the best easy-to-push double, we liked Joovy’s ScotterX2 side-by-side stroller as the best bet for most folks.

This side-by-side twin stroller has an elliptical frame. It also features a deep (but not full) seat recline.

Like all Joovy strollers, the Scooter X2 features an oversized canopy and large storage basket.

And yes, there are even two cup holders/storage pockets on the back of each seat. In a recent refresh, the ScooterX2 gained larger wheels (7″ front, 9″ rear), a new graphite frame and improved fold.

Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Easy to fold.

• Super smooth to push.

• Affordable.

• Large canopy.

• Large storage basket.

What Needs Work

• Heavy at 32 lbs.

Best For Jogging

Excellent hand brake
If you want to take your two kids off-road, this stroller is impressive. We loved how easy it is to push, thanks to air-filled wheels. And little touches like the covered storage basket make it worth the price.

Check on Amazon

Best For Jogging: Thule Urban Glide 2.0 Double Jogging Stroller

Yes, it is pricey, but this is our pick for the best jogging double stroller: Thule’s Urban Glide 2.0.

The Thule Urban Glide 2.0 Double Jogging Stroller is the double version of their popular Urban Glide 2.0. It has the same front swivel wheel, height-adjustable handle, robust wheel suspension and an extendable canopy with air mesh ventilation.

One cool feature that the Thule has that the competition lacks: a covered storage basket. The zip-top cover keeps your items dry in case it is raining or there is mud on the trail—very nice!

Also nice: a one-step fold.

We also liked the twist-action hand brake. We think this is easier to use than the lever-style brake seen on the other double jogging strollers. 

Thanks to quick-release wheels, the Thule Urban Glide 2.0 Double folds down into a relatively narrow space (30.7″ x 34.2″ x 16.1″). Even so, it takes up a good amount of trunk space, especially in a smaller vehicle. 

In the past year, Thule upgraded the Urban Glide 2.0—the double version shares these same improvements. Here’s a rundown:

What We Liked

• New integrated brake. The Urban Glide 2 Double added a brake that is integrated into the handlebar—twist the blue portion and the stroller slows, which is helpful when going down a hill.

• Extended canopy. Thule redesigned the Urban Glide 2’s canopy to offer an extension with mesh ventilation in back (the new version still has the front sun visor too).

• New accessories including a bumper bar and rain cover as well as car seat adapters for the Maxi Cosi and Chicco infant car seats. The lack of these accessories was a major negative for the original Urban Glide.

• Secure folding strap. When folded, a new catch ensures the stroller stays folded.

Flaws but not deal breakers

• Heavy. This stroller is not lightweight—clocking in at 34.2 lbs., it is even one pound heavier than the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie.

• Air-filled tires require work. It’s true: air-filled tires require maintenance . . . and can go flat at the most inconvenient times. A bicycle pump and patch kit should probably find a home in your Thule’s storage basket.

• Snack tray and parent console are extra. You’d think that a stroller that costs this much would include a parent console or kids snack tray . . . but no. Yes, you can buy these separately as accessories, but it would have been nice to have these items thrown in. 

• Seats are small. Let’s talk about the Urban Glide 2.0 Double’s seat size—it is on the smallish side. Yes, the stroller has a maximum weight capacity of 100 lbs., but squeezing two 50 lb. toddlers into these seats will be a challenge. That’s because the seats are somewhat narrow and not that deep. Hence, we see a few complaints from parents of larger toddlers that just didn’t fit well into the Thule.

Our suggestion would be to take your kiddos to sit in this stroller to make sure it is a good fit, especially if your toddler is on the higher end of their growth chart. This stroller may work better for twins versus a younger/older kid configuration. That’s because twins tend to be on the smaller side compared to singletons.
