Discover the Best Double Umbrella Stroller Brands for 2017

For Vacations or Errands, No More Bulk!

Shortly you'll uncover the right double umbrella stroller and you can look forward to going out with your children again.

Umbrella strollers get their name from the curved double handles; they also fold up very easily, just like an umbrella. This type is the lightest, smallest, and simplest strollers in the market. Cloth or vinyl seats are on a basic frame, with limited features such as a sunshade and storage basket. Weighing less than 20 pounds, their compact sizes are just right for short trips.

This type of double baby stroller is popular with parents who take trips on airplanes because they are easy to gate-check. Families who enjoy going to huge amusement parks such as Disneyland also find the umbrella double stroller a very convenient way to go, rather than renting one.

However, umbrella strollers are designed for infants that are at least 6 months old who can sit in an upright position. They are not suitable for newborn babies because the seats usually do not recline flat, although some brands can and should be used from 3 months of age.

However this type of product not suitable for rough terrain, brisk walking or jogging. But they certainly are perfect for taking strolls around the neighborhood, going to theme parks, shopping and traveling.

If you're open to a single handle side-by-side, then check out these twin strollers.They are usually heavier and bulkier, but good for everyday rigorous use.

Best Double Umbrella Stroller Picks for 2017

$499-$529 depending on color

Presenting UPPAbaby's first double umbrella stroller: the G-Link! Basically, UPPAbaby's taken the G-Luxe and doubled it, plus they added even more wonderful, useful features for both mom and children. This really is a luxury umbrella stroller and for the price, you do get all the extras you expect from such a product.

Each seat has a carrying capacity of 50 pounds, and yet the stroller only weighs 24½ pounds, compared with heavier models, like the Inglesina Twin Swift, as you will see further down the page. 

Newborns can ride in this stroller - not many umbrella strollers have a flat recline. Baby is cocooned with a head support pillow, a cushioned barrier at the top of the seat that is fully enclosed, and a snap on mesh boot at the bottom of the seat.

Outstanding full coverage SPF 50 sun canopies that UPPAbaby strollers are known for are also on the G-Link. For a side-by-side umbrella stroller, it is easy to steer because of the light frame and wheels. There's only one brake in back for conveninet one-step stopping. Parents get a cup holder, and an easy free-staning fold with carry handle. Storage baskets beneath the seats and deep pockets on the backs of the canopies provide plenty of space to keep your essentials.

Peg Perego Pliko  Mini Twin

$399

Peg Perego had a hit years ago with their umbrella stroller called the Pliko Mini. Nothing like the one-handed standing fold! Now imagine this fabulous little stroller for two! It's like two strollers were put side-by-side and now we have the Pliko Mini Twin. This double umbrella stroller holds 45 pounds in each seat and weighs 24 pounds.

The fold is so simple to do, and it stands alone and can be rolled behind like luggage when you're on the go.

Features like one-handed steering are a big hit, especially with double umbrella strollers where the handles are so wide apart. The middle handle makes this possible. It has telescoping adjustable handles for strolling comfort no matter your height. Parents, you also get a one-step rear brake and ball bearings in the front wheels ease maneuvering. Storage baskets beneath the seats hold your necessities.

For baby, independent seats have a strap recline and adjustable foot rests for maximum comfort. Because the seat does not recline fully, babies be at least 6 months old to ride. Full-coverage sun canopies provide complete sun and weather protection, while large peek-a-boo windows at the back lets you keep an eye on your passengers.

guzzie+Guss Twice

The padded seats have 5-point safety harnesses, and a four-position lever recline. An adjustable leg rest stretches your little one out for a comfy nap. I like the footrest enclosure for infants flip the leg rest up, attach two fabric pieces, and have an cocoon. Because of the seat recline, babies should be 3 months or older.

Outstanding sun canopy coverage and large mesh peek-a-boo windows are a big hit with parents. The compact, easy fold with carry handle makes transport a snap. Storage is pretty good; there are two under seat baskets and big storage pockets behind the canopies. Available in red, black and blue.

Joovy Twin Groove Ultralight

This is one of the few double umbrella strollers that has the capacity to hold two newborns WITHOUT a car seat! Each seat has a flat, individual recline, plus an adjustable leg rest that comes up. Pull up the foot enclosure netting and you have a bassinet-like cocoon. Each seat holds up to 50 pounds.

The stroller weighs just under 26 pounds, and for a double, that's pretty good. It includes a cup holder on the side and one behind each seat just above zippered storage pouches. The two storage basket are each big enough to carry a standard-size diaper bag. Canopies are generous with vinyl peek-a-boo windows and each child gets their own little storage pouch for sippy cups or toys in each seat. 

The Joovy Twin Groove rolls on six sets of wheels and has three individual brakes that you have to engage one at a time. The middle wheel might be a problem for taller parents kicking it. But the handles come up to a comfortable height and while maneuverability is easy enough, you will need two hands since it is umbrella style. The fold is a standard umbrella fold, super simple, with an auto-frame lock and includes an adjustable carry strap for convenient transport. 

So far this newer stroller is getting 4½-star ratings from parents who like the sturdiness, maneuverability on smooth surfaces and big sun canopies. Check out the official demo video:

Delta Children LX Side by Side

$68-$95 depending on color

ECONOMY PICK: This is the stroller you're going to want if you're taking a trip with your little ones. The Delta Children LX Side by Side is simple, with basic features that are must-haves, but with no extras. 

The stroller is lightweight at only 18 pounds, and each seat carries up to 35 pounds, though some customers have put heavier children in with no problems - you'll just have more difficulty steering and maneuvering. 

Features like individual reclining seats and canopies are standard. The canopies are skimpy, though, and that's reported to be the biggest downside. 

Each seat sports a 5-point safety harness - though the photo here shows it converted to the 3-point lap belt, a good option for your older child. The recline is not that deep, therefore children should be well over 3 months old before riding. 

The storage baskets are not beneath the seats in this brand. Instead, two large mesh bags hang behind each seatback and parents remark that that they are big enough to hold diaper bag items and some toys. 

Parents, you get a cup holder and handles tall enough that are comfortable enough for most adults. The fold is on-the-go quick, easy and compact. Just right for a packed car trunk or airport gate check.
