The Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller is another great offer for growing families. You can use it as a single and then as a double stroller and it is also a great choice when looking for a stroller for twins. To me, the Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller and in particular the 2015 model is kind of a more affordable version of the Bugaboo Donkey Twin Stroller.



It has the same single seat and an additional storage bag feature in order to convert it from a single to a twin stroller and all the features needed to turn into the best double stroller to suit your needs, but the price is way lower. On the other hand it has a few drawbacks too that you need to be aware of before you make your final decision. Let’s get into details in this Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller review.



The biggest plus of the Mountain Buggy is its width. It is only 24.5 inches wide, that beats even the Bugaboo Donkey Twin Stroller with that coming in at 29 inches. The Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller is actually the slimmest side-by-side double stroller that you can currently buy.




You are completely guarantied to fit it through any door, what makes it one of the best double strollers for parents who live in the city and use public transport on a daily basis, however, with this unbeatable width, you should expect narrower seats. The seats are 11 inches wide and the back seat is 19.5 inches long and there are 24 inches from the seat to the top of the open canopy. It is important to have this numbers beforehand, because if your kids are taller or just bigger for their age, the Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller will not be what you want and you will soon be disappointed with your purchase.



Apart from being a little narrower, the seats are extremely comfortable. With the help of straps the seats can be adjusted from a fully upright position to a nearly fully flat. The seats of the 2015 model come with a nicely padded reversible and washable seat liners. They are also equipped with adjustable 5 point harness with a double button that makes it more difficult for the kids to figure out how to unbuckle themselves.



Every seat can take up to a maximum of 40 lbs of weight, that is about 10 pounds less than what other competitor brands offer, but having in mind the slim design and the slightly narrower seats it is also expected. Every seats has a detachable individual canopy with a mesh peek-a-boo window that closes with a button. The canopies are quite big and even have additional sun visor.



The only thing that could have been improved regarding the seats is the ventilation. There is no ventilation windows when the seats are reclined to fully flat position, so if you are living in an area with a lot of hot days, you certainly need to take that into consideration. One more thing that might be a plus or a concern depending on your kids nature is the one big swing away bumper bar - the kids might not get to an agreement if they want it or not.



While still talking about the seats, I need to say that the Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller is a great choice when on the hunt for a double stroller for the twins, as it accepts two car seats stadium-like positioned or you could opt for two carrycots. The Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller accepts car seats from nearly every major brand, but the adapters are sold separately.

Apart from being ultra thin, the Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller offers great maneuverability. It is lightweight and very easy to push. It comes with four 10 inch pneumatic tires where the rear ones also have suspension that makes the ride literally bump-free. As every air-filled tire, these ones need some maintenance by pumping them up every now and then.



In addition to the great maneuverability and the true all-terrain ability, the Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller is also very easy to fold. All it takes is a click of a button located under the large footrest for your kids and buckle a strap to lock it in folded position. I know that an autolock would have been better, but it's still easy as you do not need to take the seats off in order to fold it and as it is so lightweight and compact you can easily fit it in the trunk of your car.



The storage bin is quite large and the storage space is actually quite impressive when you use the Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller as a single stroller with the joey bag on the side. It also comes with a flip-flop friendly foot brake and an adjustable handlebar and a security wrist strap.




The Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller would be a great selection if you have toddlers or newborn twins and you need a lightweight and easy to maneuver all-terrain double stroller. It is a great choice for parents who live in busy cities, but if they want to jog in the park with their babies, they could do too. If the drawbacks I have pointed out, like the narrower seats and the lack of mesh windows are not really a concern for you, then you have just found your best double stroller.
