Baby Jogger City Select Double Stroller is the most versatile stroller in the market. It is an award-winning luxury stroller that became very popular because of its ability to transform from a single stroller into a double or even triple stroller. The stroller weights 34 pounds (15.4 kg) and it can handle a maximum weight of 90 pounds (40.8 kg), 45 pounds (20.4 kg) per seat. Its dimensions are 42″ x 26″ x 12.5″ and it costs 699.99$ on Amazon and around 600$ on Ebay. The price seem to be very high, but if we consider quality of this stroller, then it is a very good deal. Some features I like a lot are adjustable handle bar, a lot of storage, innovative parking brake and high quality and machine washable fabric. Let’s find out what the key features are.
1. Large Extendable Canopy
The stroller has large three panels canopies with 50+ UV rating that will protect your baby from sun and rain. Each canopy can be adjusted for differing head heights and multiple positions as you open or close it.
2. Peek-a-boo Windows
Every canopy has a magnetic closure peek-a-boo window so you can easily check on you kids. Also, they can be used as ventilation on hot summer days.
3. Adjustable Handle Bar
Baby Jogger City Select Double Stroller has adjustable telescoping handle bar so you can pull it up if you are a tall parent. It is a great feature for parents that are not the same height.
4. Spacious Seat
The seat is 12″ wide and 21″ high from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy so it is a very roomy and has enough space for your child. As I mentioned before, each seat can handle a maximum weight of 45 pounds (20.4 kg).
5. Multiple Reclining Seat
This stroller has one-hand lever recline, all you need to do is to hit the button at the back of the seat and adjust the recline you want. The seat does not get completely flat so you will need to get a bassinet or car seat adapter for newborn.
6. 5-point Harness
The stroller has padded 5-point harness with center release button in the middle which will keep your child secure, no matter what position the seat has.
The stroller comes with high quality and easy to clean fabric on each seat. You can take off the fabric and wash it in the machine in cold water.
8. Storage Pocket
There is a medium size pocket located on the back of the seat where you can put essential items like smartphone, wallet, bottle of water etc.
9. Foot Rest
The stroller has adjustable foot rest which is great feature for small babies. You can adjust foot rest to 4 different positions.
The stroller rolls on air tires that are filled with lightweight foam instead of air so you can be sure that they will never go flat. The rubber helps to improve the comfort of the ride and potentially increased its maneuverability. There are 4 wheels and the front wheels are swivel.
11. Lockable Front Wheels
This feature allow you to easily push this stroller through uneven surfaces such as grass.
12. Parking Brake
The stroller has very practical hand brake that is located on the side of the handle bar. I like how this stroller has a good sliding resistance when the brakes are set.
13. Large Basket
The stroller comes with one of the biggest basket I ever seen. The basket is that big so you can go grocery shopping with it. Also, I like how the basket is easy accessible through all sides of the stroller.
14. Travel System Compatible
Baby Jogger City Select Double stroller is travel system compatible. You will need to buy an adaptor to use a car seat with this product.
The stroller has great stability and even with one of the seats empty, it will not flip over. Also, the frame on this stroller is sturdy and feels well built.
16. Easy Fold
The stroller comes with very easy fold technology. All you need to do is lift the sides (stroller frame) and the stroller does everything else. Also, you can fold the stroller with both seats attached or without them. The fold does not automatic lock so you will need to lock the stroller manually.
1. No automatic lock
As I mentioned above, when folded, you need to lock the stroller manually.

What other parents say about this stroller:
“Awesome stroller, very well built and a pleasure to use.”
“I love this stroller. Very high quality and very easy to assemble and disassemble. My 9 month old and 4 years old use this and are comfortable all day in the seats. Love the hand break as well. They clean easy and easy straps. Definitely worth the money.”
“I have a 3 years old and 1 year old. I have been looking for a double stroller for months and months. The Baby Jogger City Select always came up in my search, but was very hesitant due to the high price. I was only looking into spending Max $300. As I searched and searched, i was never happy with the double strollers out there. I saw many reviews online but every time i went to a store to try them out, there was always an issue with how much space they will use in the trunk, not enough leg space for my 3 year old. etc. I am so glad and happy i bought the Baby Jogger. I was so excited when I got it. I assemble it myself, it was so easy!. Now the big test was being able to go around the sidewalks in my neighborhood. they are not nice and flat, but with the two kids, it was so easy to move around with the stroller. I never felt like i had to push harder in these not so flat areas. both kids are comfortable. I wish i had bought this stroller sooner, when my first child was born. It is so sturdy and it will last you for years. I truly recommend this stroller with 2 toddlers and even if you just 1 child.”
