Overall this has been a very good baby stroller with, as any stroller has, a few quirks. But what product doesn't have at least an issue or two? We currently own the doubles kit part of this stroller, but we almost exclusively use this in the single-child mode. The second seat attaches and removes very easily from both the front and back, but the reclining feature on the second seat is only good if your child is short enough to be under the top bar of the seat itself.

Overall there are a lot of positives. First off, it's very maneuverable, extremely compact for a double, and offers the children plenty of comfort on the ride. But probably the best feature is that it offers the owner the flexibility to switch between a double and single stroller without having to own two units.

There are, however, flaws. This is definitely not made for running, as the design makes it hard to find a bottle holder. There is not much storage in double mode either, meaning that you will be carrying stuff if you're going on a day journey with two kids - or at least your spouse or significant other will be the pack mule. The canopy that comes with it is also totally non-functional as a sun-shade; you will need to by the sunshade accessory to make sure that your children are properly shaded from the sun.

Other than those handful of issues it's a good stroller, and very convenient. It's pretty pricey at around $400, but considering it's a double, and it can be converted so easily, that's a small price to pay for a good, quality, stroller that you're going to use for a few years. Phil & Ted have done an excellent job engineering quality and creatively designing innovative baby products, and frankly I am willing to pay a little extra for advanced engineering, and to have the best, most versatile stroller on the block. Overall I have been pleased, and since I understand that nothing is perfect, I am able to overlook those small issues. If you have the money I would recommend this stroller to you. If you're on a tight budget, you might look at less "designer" style units.
