I just got the city mini double two weeks ago for the same reasons RSG posted above. I keep a BOB double in the garage for walks and the city mini in my trunk. I am SO MUCH happier not having to lift those car seats out to use the stupid snap n go, and not having to struggle with getting the BOB in and out of my trunk! I can honestly say that buying this stroller has changed my life... for several weeks I had been DREADING going places in the car because my back has been killing me. And the boys seem really comfortable in it and it's super light and easy to fold. I can steer it with one hand (which I could not do with the snap n go) and it fits through doorways easily. I can't say enough good things about it!!!

So, we broke down and bought the city select. Its nice, but I'm not in love . Can't believe I'm saying that after spending that kind of money. Trouble wth it is that most of the seating options don't allow much recline except them both facing backward. WHen facing each other half the basket is blocked. It manouvers decently, but honestly it isn't that much easier than a Graco Duoglider for steering. Nothing compared to a SBS. The city mini might have been a better bet for the long term since we'll mostly be using the select for indoors, sidewalks, etc. We have a Chariot for the rougher terrain.

All in all . . . it's a nice stroller but if I could do it again I might choose differently. Don't tell my DH I said that

How's the recline if they are both facing towards you? How does the fitvand quality feel in your hands?

The recline when facing toward you is full - it is the one position that it works well. They aren't laying flat like in, say, a MBUD, but more like in an infant carseat propped up to a reclined position if that makes sense.

The quality is good, I think, and the break is super cool (done with hand rather than foot). The basket is nice, although size depends on seat position, and it folds down amazingly well. I guess it depends on what you compare it with. Quality when compared to my Chariot isn't even a contest, Chariot wins hands down. Compared to my MBUD I would say the MBUD wins by a wee bit. Compared to other stadium style strollers - I would say this one is better, and I like the seat positions better than phil and teds for sure. Does that help? I guess it depends on which features are most important to you.
