The Phil&Teds Sport Buggy Stroller with Double Kit is the company offer for active parents who would like to jog with their babies. The advantage of the Phil & Teds Sport Double Stroller is that in comparison to the other double jogging strollers available it is narrower, but at the same time ensuring the same comfortable and roomy seats for your babies.
One thing I would like to mention before I start with the Phil&Teds Sport Buggy Stroller review is that it was previously known as Navigator and you will possibly still find it on amazon and other listings under the name of Navigator.
The Phil andTeds Sport Buggy Stroller is an all terrain double stroller that is perfectly suitable for jogging in the park and walks in the city or shopping with your babies. One feature that might not seem very important, but to me (and other parents who have had the chance to test it) gets the Phil and Teds Double Stroller to the top of my double stroller list is the auto-stop function. Basically, this prevents your double stroller from rolling away while you are not holding it. To me it has been very useful, when I have been chasing my toddler while the baby is still sitting in the stroller.
As I have already mentioned, the Phil and Teds Sport Double Stroller much more slim-line than other double jogging strollers with its 23 inches in the widest part, so you are completely safe to walk through narrow doors and when shopping around the isles. It is also one of the most lightweight double strollers - only 31 lbs as a double. It looks a bit bulky when folded, but it actually doesn’t take a lot of storage space and if needed you can easily pop off the wheels.
Talking about folding, the Phil & Teds Sport Double Stroller is easy to fold even with one hand, but unlike the Phil&Teds Voyager Double Stroller and Phil & Teds Dash Double Stroller, you need to take the rear seat off in order to fold it. It is also important to know that the Phil & Teds Sport Double Stroller doesn't stand upright when folded and if you are not careful with that you might scratch the handlebar.
Another thing that differs from the upscaled Phil and Teds Voyager Double Stroller and Phil & Teds Dash Double Stroller are the wheels. Instead of the forever air ones, the Phil & Teds Sport Double Stroller is equipped with three 12 inch air-filled wheels that needs pumping up every now and then. Although, this might be a bit of a hustle for some parents, it will pay off with a smooth ride and an inline double stroller capable to provide smooth ride even when jogging with it.
When compared to other double jogging strollers, like the BOB for example, the Phil & Teds Sport Double Stroller doesn’t feel as sturdy and durable, but it always have the advantage of being slimmer.
There is something the other strollers can’t offer and this is the versatility in the seat’s positions. The Phil & Teds Sport offers 26 different ones to be exact, inclusive a parent facing newborn suitable seat. You will be able to use your Phil & Teds Stroller with two car seats as well and the list of the ones suitable is quite long, but you need to get the respective adapter: phil&teds alpha, Mountain Buggy protect, Maxi-Cosi Mico, Cybex Aton, Graco classic connect, Graco Click Connect and Chicco Keyfit, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio.
Apart from being versatile in the configurations, the seats are roomy and comfortable. Both are fitted with a 5 point harness, but there has been some complaints of the straps being too short. The front seat takes up to 55 lbs and the rear one up to 33, and I have never had a problem with strapping my 4 year old at the front and the 2 year old at the back.
The canopy of the front seat is not the largest I have seen, but is large enough to offer the sun protection needed. The rear seat doesn’t have a canopy at all and this is something that is a must for every stroller to get to be the best stroller of your choice. The rear seat reclines and although it gets shade from the front one, I still think it would be great to have its own canopy.
Also if your little child is a bit taller it might get too close to the front seat and if the kid likes watching the world then you are better off with getting a side-by-side double stroller or a double stroller for twins.
The Phil and Teds Sport Double Stroller has an adjustable handle and a large storage bin, but with the second seat installed it gets hard to reach. On the other hand, even with the two kids in it, the The Phil and Teds Sport Double Stroller is very easily maneuverable and will take you smoothly through all kind of terrains, will take the curbs and turns with ease and you will love taking out your kids on a quick trips to the shops.
Although it is advertised as a double jogging stroller, I think the Phil and Teds will not be your first choice if you really want to go for a run, however, if you are an outdoors loving parent and you are on the hunt for a great double stroller to handle all type of terrains and comfortable for walks in the city, then you will consider the Sport Double Stroller.
