Anyone here using a double jogging stroller?

If so, what kind do you have and how do you like it?

I do but I don't remember what brand it is! Lol I can tell you tomorrow because it's in the scary garage.

But I do like it. DD2 likes it a lot and so does Desmond Smile

Don't have a double stroller because I heard that you aren't supposed to take a little one in a jogger until they were one!!! Is that not true?? I have taken Heidi in a stroller, but not a jogger...

Yeah it's recommended for like 3 or 6 months I think but I didn't jog with it. I just walked so it made it okay Smile

We just got a BOB revolution double stroller, bought it used. LOVE IT!!! It pushs so smoothly, it has awesome shocks and it fits through doorways (i have not found one yet that it does not fit through). It does not fold up the smallest but no double jogger does (that is my only complaint). It is a bit of an investment if you can't by a used one but it is worth it. I do not run with it yet but I will probably start that when she is about 4 mths. I feel comfortable with 4 mths becuase she already has good head control, so it will be even better at 4 mths, the BOB has great shocks so it absorbs all of the bumps and I will only be running on very smooth paths with Emma in it. I will make sure I observe how she is in it when I before I go too far to make sure she is ok. She does really well in it when we are just walking.

I love it so much I am already planning on buying a single BOB stroller even though we do not really need it. Right now We have 5 strollers, so I need to get rid of some of those first.

We invested in a double Chariot when we had DD1, because we knew we wanted multiple kiddos. It's a bit pricey, but it converts into jogger, regular stroller, bike trailer, cross-country ski trailer(!), and has tons of cargo space. You can get an optional insert for infants that can't sit up by themselves. DD2 has been riding in it since we got home from the hospital.

We have a double BOB revolution that we got used as well. LOVE IT! I couldn't swing buying a new one but got a used one for about 2/3 the price. We use it with the infant seat attachment for now. I only walk with it but would feel comfortable jogging with it and LO after about 4 months or so when head control is better.

Okay I looked and I have an in step double stroller. It folds down and has a visor thing that you can put down to cover the kids and a little peak hole if you want to look down at them while the visor is down. I got it used for $105 and it had new tires and everything. Plus when I do finally start running I can use that or even just walk around the neighborhood. Smile

We have a Phil & Reds Sport double. I love it. I have went jogging a few times with it and it works great.

When I had my girls in a stroller (19 months apart), I had a double jogging stroller that was OK, but I HATED the the one front wheel did not swivel at all. This meant awkward maneuvering around corners, and inconvenient for actual jogging. I also think it would have been MUCH better if the front wheel came off completely, so it had a thinner profile when folded up. We also had a big plastic rain/wind cover for the entire thing, which was VERY nice. I can't remember the brand, but that front swiveling wheel makes ALL the difference!

Ideally the front wheel will swivel when just walking and then can lock in place for running. It needs to be locked for running becuase it will wobble way to much if not locked. So turning corners while running takes a bit of practice but you get used to it.
