BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller, Orange Reviews

LOVE this stroller!!! (By Amy Jahnke)

UPDATE: We have been using our Bob Duallie for 4 years now and it’s still going strong! My kids are now 4 and 5 plus we have a new baby. I bought the car seat adapter to use with the baby’s car seat. While it’s functional, my baby actually prefers just to sit in the stroller seat itself (now that she can sit on her own). My other 2 kids still love their stroller. Still plenty of room for both a 4 year and 5 year old. I have grown to love the little seat divider – keeps them from “touching” each other. They fabric has worn surprisingly well – and it gets heavy use. No rips or tears and it cleans easily. The thing I still love most – the one handed steering. I can load in all 3 kids (2 in seats, 1 on the front – that’s 100 lbs or so) and still have a free hand for coffee! We take it to Disneyland on almost a weekly basis. Both kids still comfortably fall asleep in it as well. I am so happy with our investment.

I’ll start with the seats: they have completely changed how the seats are designed. They are far more supportive and have these really nice cushion-like supports all over them. There’s even extra padding for a headrest. They sit at a much higher angle than previous models. There is even a lumbar support. The recline feature has also been revamped and is much simpler. No more buckling and unbuckling. The seat does not go completely flat, but it goes flat enough, even for an infant. Because of the change of design in the footrest area – there is actually more leg room. The 5 point harness is padded where it needs to be and easily adjustable. Something I especially like is they’ve added a little buckle at the top where the harness fastens to seat allowing you to move it higher or lower, depending on the size of the child.

Baby Planner Review (By Katie)

After six months of use as a full time nanny/baby planner:

Pros:
– Super easy to push, even with toddlers
– Turns on a dime
– Amazing shade
– Waterproof material
– Front lockable swivel wheel for jogging/tough terrain
– Peekaboo windows, but with loud velcro
– 5pt harness
– (just barely) fits through standard doorways

Cons:
– Heavy, heavy, HEAVY!!! Do not expect to be easily whipping this stroller around, it weighs a ton.
– The fold is huge, which is to be expected with this type of stroller, but makes it hard to fit in a standard sized car. Between the weight and size of the fold, it is hard to carry it up or down even a few stairs.
– It is a three part fold that requires two hands, esp annoying when you have a baby old enough to sit in the seat but not old enough to sit completely unassisted on the sidewalk
– The handlebar is not adjustable. I am tall, so this is particularly annoying to me.
– The basket is big, but it is hard to get anything big in it. There is a strap that goes right in between the two seats which makes fitting a medium to large diaper bag in it hard, and ridiculous to try and maneuver out while you are squatting on the ground in a foot of snow
– No adjustable footrest. The slope down is fine, but I imagine this will be uncomfortable when the littler one hits 12 months. Also it goes into a V, this is annoying for my tall 26mo old who has to keep his legs moved sideways or stick one leg over the side.
– Although I love the canopies, when only one section is open the material of the other one hangs down to block my 26mo old’s view or not let him rest his head depending on which section is closed
– Tall 26 month old is already getting too tall.
He has room to canopy top, but not on the seat back.
– Manual strap recline – super annoying, but versatile
– It has a shock system, but it makes the stroller incredibly bouncy, so the bumps are not hard, but they do shake your kids silly

BUY IT: if you live in a rural area and can just roll it into your garage, you want to jog with your two kids (both at LEAST 6mo old, best if 12mo and up), or you frequently encounter rough terrain with wide paths.

DO NOT BUY: if you have big children, live in an urban area, or have to carry it over more than four stairs

THE BEST!! (By Saunch09)

I can only review this stroller as an avid walker and hiker. I do not jog or run. I have a four year old and a 8 week old and they both fit comfortably and securely. My four year old still has a lot of room widthwise and lengthwise and there is plenty of head room. He has fallen asleep in it numerous times since we got it about two weeks ago. Our 8 week old fits securely and can be reclined to a good position for a newborn’s comfort and safety. The sun shades almost cover the child completely but still let them see outside of the stroller. The “peek-in” window is really wide and you can also lift the airflow flap in the back to give the kids better airflow and to be able to see and communicate with them without stopping. I LOVE THAT!
There is SO much storage, in the children’s seats on the back of the seats, and underneath. We never feel like we have to leave stuff behind.
The ride is smooth and pushing it is a dream. It also fits through most doorways!! I thought I would feel obnoxious if I had to go into a store or push this stroller around the mall or at community events but it only takes up 6 inches more in width than our single BOB. I forget it’s a double stroller.
The swivel wheel is a must for me and was worth the extra money. Look no further, this is the stroller for you!
Also, this stroller folds up so nicely that we can fit it in the hatch of our 2008 Honda Fit. This amazes me! The last double stroller I owned was a bear to get in and out of the car. This stroller is a dream to fold up and put into the car compared to others we have tried.
