<p>Any good recommendations out there for double strollers? Now that I'll have to kidlets, I'm going to need one. I'd like a jogging stroller and a hand brake is a must have. However, I'm indecisive about a front-to-back model where the children sit one in front of the other, or a side-by-side. I would appreciate some good opinions. Thanks!</p>

<p>My understanding is that side-by-side is more sturdy, balance wise, so probably best for jogging.</p>

<p>It's been years since I've needed a double, and we used a Jeep front-back stroller.  I absolutely LOVED that thing for "off roading" (we spent lots of time in parks on grass/rocks/dirt), but I wouldn't trust it for any more than a brisk walking pace.</p>

<p>I have the In-Step double jogger and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.  That being said, it's MASSIVE!  But, it turns on a dime and is plenty roomy. </p>

<p>I never had another double, so I can't help ya there.  Sorry!</p>

<p>We have a double Chariot. Spendy, but oh so lovely. I used to work for an outfitter that was also the supplier for Chariots for pretty much the entire territory, and I was/am a big proponent of having the "strolling" wheels if you're going to be out in public. You're a giant hazzard with the jogging wheel on a double in a store! They're great though. :)</p>

We have friends who managed two in their single. Their kids are 2years and one month apart too, so not a huge gap. Older kiddo sat on the seat, new babe sort of between his legs/on the floor. It worked, although not for huge distances, I would imagine! Older kiddo was wanting to walk by the time the little one was needing a full seat to herself. I'm quite sure this is not a Chariot endorsed method, but hey, whatever works!</p>
<p>We didn't think we'd be able to swing the double cost-wise either, and then we realized that we didn't really need anything for this babe (aside from easily/cheaply aquired used stuff like a change table), and we found them on an "end of season" (I didn't realize there was an "end of season" for Chariots!) sale when we were in the US in September. Half the price we would have paid here in Canada, which is ridiculous since they're MADE in Canada. Bah.</p>

<p>We have the Bob Revolution Duallie stroller.  IT.IS.AWESOME.  I've used it through 3 children and think it's the best investment we ever made.  It's a side by side that is super smooth and as wide as a wheelchair so it fits through any standard door.  That said, it does not have a hand brake!!!  I still highly recommend it though.</p>
