Baby Jogger City Select Stroller with 2nd Seat Ruby

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I selected this stroller because I have two children who are still of the age that they need to be in strollers. I was attracted to the unique design, as I didn't want to deal with how wide most double strollers were. The only issue I had before buying it was that it was only available via mail and I'd have to put it together. Luckily as soon as it was shipped to me I discovered that it was extremely easy to put together - I just had to snap a few pieces together.
Now that I've used it for a few months, I'm mostly happy with it. I do like that I can switch up the configuration whenever I want. For example, if I'm taking the kids out for a walk and I want them to both be able to see around, I can have the seats facing forward. Or if I'm at the park, chatting with other moms and want the kids to be able to interact with one another, I can have them face each other. The flexibility of this stroller is definitely one of its biggest assets.
For the most part it's very easy to push. It's lightweight and much narrower than most double strollers, so that's a plus. However, it's not very effective at getting up curbs and I've had some issues with that. It was also a pretty big disappointment when I discovered that you can't recline the seats if both seats are attached. I saw this mentioned in one review I read before I bought it, but I didn't really realize how important that issue would be. There are many times that I'd like my kids to be able to lay back and they just aren't able to.
When both seats are in, the back seat also doesn't have a ton of leg room. This isn't an issue for me yet, as my infant doesn't need a ton of room, but it won't be a very good option when my kids get a little older.
