If you are a parent that likes to stay fit, but you have two children to take care of, a double jogging stroller might be precisely what you need. The baby trend expedition double jogging stroller is an ideal pick for parents who don’t want to spend a fortune on a jogging stroller.

This stroller has all of the necessary features a jogging stroller needs. It’s lightweight, has a quick folding mechanism, it’s compact once folded, and most of all, it’s very comfortable for the children. You will love this affordable stroller that’s made to cope with any terrain. So, let’s take a more detailed look into the features of this fantastic double stroller.

Features

  • Comfortable seats

This is a two-seat baby trend double jogging stroller with the seats positioned side by side. Both seats have the same recline adjustment options, and you’ll need both hands to set it. There is an infinite number of positions to choose from. Both seats are very comfortable. They are padded for increased comfort. The 5-point safety harness is hard to get out of, so your kids won’t be able to escape easily.

  • Canopy

Since this is an affordable alternative to some other double strollers, it has only one canopy. That means that you have to set it, so it suits both children at the same time. The canopy is large enough to shield your children from the sun, but not entirely. There’s a large ventilation window that keeps your kids fresh, and a peekaboo mesh window that lets you keep an eye on them at all times.

The window is closed with a hook and loop system that works well but is not that practical. You can rotate the canopy forward to block the sun and wind, but your children won’t be protected in case it rains.

  • Storage Basket

The large storage basket under the seats is divided into two. Each of them can hold a large diaper bag or some other items as long as their weight doesn’t go over 5 pounds. That can sometimes be a problem because you have to think about the weight, not the size of an item. The basket is accessible from the rear and the sides.

  • Other Storage pockets

There is a large mesh pocket in the back of each of the seats. It’s conveniently located and ideal for holding items like your phone, wallet, water bottles, and baby bottles. Don’t stuff the pockets too much because if you do, the mesh could get ripped. Each of the pockets has a string used to tighten and loosen the opening. It’s a great feature as it prevents any of your stuff to fall out while you’re making your way downtown.

The seats have mesh pockets inside of the canopy. They are ideal for holding your children’s toys and snacks. All in all, there is plenty of storage space, but be careful about the weight of the stuff you put into the stroller.

  • Great Pneumatic wheels

Like other double strollers, this one also has three wheels. The ones on the back are 16 inches in diameter, and the one on the front is a 12″. The wheels are filled with air, but the tires are very durable and resistant, so you won’t have to worry about a flat. You can inflate the tires with any standard bike pump. The front wheel is swivel and can be locked in place when needed.

  • Brakes

The baby trend expedition double jogging stroller has dual action brakes. That means that you operate two pedals instead of one. That makes the braking a little harder, and you have to remember to set both brakes when leaving the stroller, otherwise, it could move.

  • Safety Harness

Both seats have a 5-point harness with a buckle your kids won’t be able to open. The buckle is tough to press and get open, which is always good. The straps can be adjusted separately. The upper straps are easy to set, but you’ll need to maneuver a bit to get the bottom ones fixed.

There are 3 different shoulder strap positions, and you can adjust the crotch strap in length. All of the settings make it possible for you to personalize each strap to each child perfectly. They won’t be able to get out, that’s for sure.

  • Extra features

For such an affordable stroller, this baby trend double stroller comes with a cup holder and parent tray. It’s a small but handy feature that’s not a standard for similar strollers. The two cup holders are very deep and stable, so your water bottle doesn’t tip over while you jog. The tray has a closing system, which is a must for a jogging stroller.

  • Easy to fold

The folding mechanism works well, and the stroller folds up nicely. You need only one hand to fold or unfold it, which is better than what some other much more expensive models offer. This system works well, and it’s really easy to get used to.

Once you fold it, the stroller will fit in most trunks and can be stored in compact spaces. When folded, the size is 32.8″W x 16.5″H x 34″L, and since it’s one of the lightest double strollers with about 30 pounds, it’s easy to carry and transport.

What’s wrong with the product?

– Handlebar isn’t adjustable

The handlebar can’t be adjusted, so it’s not ideal for all parents.

– Divided storage baskets

The storage baskets are divided, and they can’t hold more than 5 pounds of weight.

Conclusion

The baby trend expedition double jogging stroller is an excellent stroller overall. It is stable, durable, easy to take care of, and it’s also comfortable for your children. The seat has an infinite number of recline positions, there’s plenty of storage room, and the best thing is that the stroller costs considerably less than some other similar models.

So, if you need a double jogging stroller, but you don’t want to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars, this could be what you are looking for.
