Higher end strollers=no cup holder?

I've been looking at LOT of different strollers/travel systems/car seats. I can't find one that we 100% like. Today we were looking at more high end ones (at The Safety Superstore - One Stop Baby Shop! but in their actual store) and none of them have cup holders. This is like the #1 requirement for DH as he lives on coffee. And all the add-on attachment ones were flimsy. It seems that the only models with built in cup holders are the more economical brands you get at Walmart.... Am I just not looking in the right places?

Sorry no help but wanted to second that the add on attachments are flimsy. We got one (Britax I think) and it was total garbage. If you have a tall travel mug in it it spins and dumps out your cup! And DS got a hold of it from the stroller and broke it Sad

:lurk:

I got given a pram with an add on cup holder which was fabric and stretches across the handles. I can't remember the brand, but it is two cup holders and a zip up pouch. It is pretty sturdy, but quite old so possibly not made anymore. I'll go downstairs in the morning and check the brand.

Have you looked at Baby trend jogging type strollers, we have one and I love it. but is kinda bulky. 2 cup holders and a cubby. plus 2 cup holders in the baby/childs tray.
We use this stroller mostly for the zoo and long day excursions. I also like because Dh and I are tall and it fits us both well.
I always have our umbrella stroller in my car trunk so i am never stuck with out one. the Big one is in the suv mostly but does fit in my car too.

We were in Target today and the only Baby Trend jogger they sold didn't have any cup holders. We saw an Eddie Bauer jogger style one that has 2 cup holders. So far it's the front runner.

My BOB has an awesome cup holder(s) I put an S there because it actually has 2 cup holders and a little pouch to put other stuff in too - like snacks or keys and phone. I don't know if it is extra, but it came with my BOB that I bought used. It's amazing!

ETA: This is what I have...
