  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Lightweight, compact fold, 2 baskets, individual canopies with storage pockets, and great steering.

Cons:Price and has no cupholders or trays, but what umbrella stroller has that anyway.

The Bottom Line: Excellent double stroller, but try to find it used so you can get it cheaper.


Had to have it! I am expecting my 3rd son in a few months and wanted to be prepared with a new double stroller for my newborn and 2yr old. Most importantly I wanted one that was lightweight, compact and easy to use. I already have the huge and heavy Graco Duoglider.
I was able to find the Maclaren Rally Twin in the Denim color, which is perfect b/c I have all boys. Got it off ebay for $102.50 adn picked it up b/c the seller lived closed by. I got an awesome deal, the stroller was barely used and in excellent condition. The Rally Twin goes for over $289 at every store I did my research at. As I mentioned, it is lightweight (21 lbs, I believe)which is light for a double stroller. I like the side by side feature b/c both kids have a frontal view. Both seats recline almost to a flat position...this also happens to be useful if you have to change a diaper in the stroller b/c there is no facility around to use. The storage baskets are small, but by having 2 of them I can fit everything I need to. The individual canopies are good when you only have to cover one baby instead of one huge canopy. The mesh lining over the canopy windows makes it a little hard to see thru. Very easy to open and close...did I mention really compact. Takes up so much less space in my trunk, even less than my Graco Quattro single stroller. (I also have a Maclaren Triumph single stroller). So the retail price on this stroller may be outrageous, but it happens to be well constructed and durable, which makes it worth it. If you can get one cheaper previously owned like I did, I highly recommend doing so. Maclaren also makes strollers with the highest weight limit available...55lbs per seat. This stroller maneuvers like a dream, it is so smooth and I pushed it with one hand! No cupholders if that is important for you, I always have a water bottle that can be kept in the basket or either of the 2 storage pockets on the backside of the canopies. Great product, love it, don't consider any other brand! FYI: I tried the Jeep side by side at Toys R Us ($80) and I broke it testing it out, that totally didn't make me feel comfortable putting my children in it.
