We had purchased this double stroller when my second child was born. I do currently have a sit n stand as well. I especially enjoyed this stroller while my youngest was first born. My oldest could comfortable sit in a real seat and could get in and out while I could monitor my baby in the back by me. I have noticed it is much longer than a sit n stand but I also like the dual canopies to help keep the sun off of the children. I think this stroller has a limited use as any older siblings grow up but if two children are both small it is an excellent choice. I love the turning capability (with regards to a tandem stroller) and the very large basket helps to store all the supplies that come with having multiple children. I only purhcased the sit n stand as my older child outgrew the front seat for hte stroller and wanted to transition from sitting all the time to walking and sitting wherever we went.
