Expert Review: Fear doorways no more! The new Duet from Mountain Buggy is the same width as their single stroller -- just 25 inches wide! Inside this compact frame you'll find lots of exceptional standard features like padded seats with a full recline, full-coverage canopies, a multi-position handlebar and unique twist-and-slide harness adjustments that let you kiss tangled straps goodbye. The Duet has an impressive turning radius, though maneuvering takes more effort than the competition (erhaps due to the stroller's 34 lbs). The folding latch is located on the child's footplate which means you have to face the front of the stroller in order to fold it. It takes some getting used to, but the stroller locks shut and stands when folded.

What We Love: 5-position handlebar adjustment; full-coverage canopy; full recline; durable fabric and footplate; narrow width.

What We Wish It Had: An included tire pump; more storage options for parent and child; included accessories like rain covers or foot muffs.

Great For: Twins; parents of various heights; rugged terrain; maneuvering through narrow aisles, hallways and crowded streets.

Bottom Line: The narrowest stroller in our round-up, the Duet delivers easy turning, comfy seats and full-coverage canopies. But it falls short on storage options for parent and child.

Parent Rating:
"The best feature of this double is by far the size and its compactness for a side by side -- a great feature as we would take it everywhere and through any door."

"The sun shields provides great coverage, and the footrest is extra big and sturdier than most other strollers."

"I also love the adjustable handlebar. My husband is 6'2" and I'm 5'3" and we both loved it."

"I don't particularly like the harness belts because they are very difficult to open and close. We spent a lot of time trying to get children in and out of the belts."

"The maneuvering of this stroller is superb. We both could push with one hand. It is very easy to turn and it fit really well in tight areas in stores and restaurants. We even took on a ferry and it was extremely easy to get on and off."

"The folding process is a bit complicated, as two to three steps are required to fold it. You must fold in handlebar, lock the tires and then pull both sides at the same time."
