Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Making the choice of one of the many double jogger strollers can be daunting. There are many types, features, and brands to choose from and the price can vary from about $100 to $1,000. The best way to slim down the choices to a select few is to pick a target price, list the features important to you, and then make the final decision.

Everybody's family budget is different, but you should consider the intensity level of your exercise when setting a target price. The more athletic you are, the more you should likely plan to pay for double jogger strollers that fit your needs. The more expensive models are lighter, more tuned for absorbing bumps, and easier to push and turn. They typically have larger wheels and can include rear suspension. This ensures that when you are exercising the stroller works with you instead of against you. Lesser priced models typically compromise in weight and agility. But, if you are someone interested in double jogger strollers to take a brisk afternoon walk, the demands on stroller will be less. So, it may not be worth the extra money if you don't plan to push the stroller to its limits.

There are three main types of double jogger strollers. Most models have the children sitting side by side and facing frontward. Tandem models are designed so that one child sits in front of the other. These are narrower and can have a better center of gravity when steering them around. But, the compromise is the kids can get bored since they can't see each other, which can lead to a lot of fussing if you plan to do long runs. And lastly, there are some which can be used as a jogging stroller or attached to a bicycle. If you do a lot of biking and jogging, you may want to consider this model. This would save you money when compared to having to buy something separate for both activities.

When it comes to the safety of your children, you really shouldn't compromise. Double jogger strollers should be expected to keep the kids safe and comfortable while you are outdoors. A handbrake is important to help bring the stroller to a stop. With the additional weight of carrying two children, a handbrake can provide the necessary assistance in coming to a quick stop. Since you are moving along at a faster speed than a normal stroller, you should be sure to get one with a five point harness. This is the type of restraint which has two shoulder staps which meet at a buckle that comes up between the legs. This will keep the child securely in the seat. Don't forget to check the weight limit of the stroller and buy one that your kids won't outgrow quickly. Also, try and get one that provides some type of shade for the kids to avoid sunburns.

The convenience features to look for include an adjustable handlebar, cup holder, and an under seat basket for carrying loose items. The stroller should be easy to fold up and put away. Of course, the lighter the weight, the easier double jogger strollers are to put away in the back of a car.

This overview has shown you the key characteristics to look for in the best double jogger strollers.
