Update: Double Umbrella Stroller

If you missed my last post on Downsizing Your Double Stroller, you should check it out.  I’ve now had this Kolcraft double stroller for over a month, and used it several times.  I even took it with me to the Upper Peninsula for a trip.  I must tell you that this thing is a beast!  I was able to lug it (with 2 toddlers) through sand and wooded trails (at times I did pull it backwards).  While a nice big stroller with tires like Danyelle’s Birtrax would have been luxurious, this stroller got the job done while saving space in the car for other essentials on a 5+ day trip.

Fun picnic enjoying the great outdoors!  Stroller was a perfect seat for girlies to eat their picnic off a nearby bench.

I could wedge my Chicco Click Connect car seat in there for an infant.  Click here for the newer version of this stroller.
