Is That Cargo in Your Pouch….?
Every now and then a stroller comes along that seems very ordinary, but is, in fact, quite remarkable. Double strollers come and go, but the Mountain Buggy Duet will be one that stays around for a bit—and it’s one that I have constantly recommended to people looking for a double.
It’s 25 inches wide. That’s as wide, or more narrow, than many single strollers on the market. How’d they accomplish this? The majority of strollers have wheels that extend far past the frame, and this makes the wheels the widest point of the stroller–essentially wasted real estate. The Duet actually built the frame out over the wheels, allowing for a side-by-side double that is actually the most narrow side-by-side double I know of. I’ve reviewed it before, and we all know I love it.
Nice understorage basket.
A non-rethread harness that adjusts with a simple twist and slide.
It’s really a terrific double stroller.
When I originally received mine in the mail, I had a thought: “If this is 25 inches wide, then it’s a single. So parents with one kid could buy it and use the seat on the side to hold their belongings like a side-saddle bag. Nope. They need a bag.” I sent an email to my peeps at Mountain Buggy, and 7 days later I was shown the prototype for the Joey.
What’s the Joey? Take out the seat on the right side and snap in a cargo bag. Inside this bag is a removable canvas shopping bag, actually allowing you scoop all your cargo out at once. Yes, it’s a similar idea to another stroller out there with a side-saddle bag. What sets it apart?
It has a more compact fold.
It’s more narrow.
It can fit through a door with two car seats in double mode.
You can leave the canopy on when the Joey is attached and actually cover your cargo in bad weather.
Attaching the bag is a bit more complicated than the other guy, and the seats aren’t reversible; but there is a LOT going for this stroller. I love it. I use it. I encourage you all to give it a looksie.
But you know I am gonna give one of you the chance to win one. That’s how I roll
