Though on the pricey side a Phil and Ted stroller is well worth the investment! With 2 kids 20 months apart we looked and looked at other strollers and finally found this beauty on craigslist. It was more than worth it to buy the 2nd seat from the company. I would recommend a Phil and Ted product to anyone! Child Comfort The kids love this stroller! We have another "traditional" double stroller that the kids hate to sit in. When we pull out the Phil and Ted's they're always excited to ride in it. Maneuverability NO comparison to any other double stroller! Because the 2nd seat is behind the first it drives like a single stroller. Plus, because it's a jogging stroller you get the maneuverability of a high-quality front pivot. Durability The only reason for the 7 is because the tires have actual inner tubes in them that tend to go flat quite easily. However, you buy new inner tubes and well as any part of a discoed stroller on their website, which is awesome!
We like the Phil & Teds double stroller because the side-by-side doubles are so wide. Our Phil & Teds Sport Double Stroller rolls and steers very well and is perfect for running. Another feature I love is that the top seat can lay all the way down for nap time. So convenient and comfortable for my baby!
I love love love my Phil & Ted stroller. While we had need of it for our 2 kids, it was so convenient to just snap on the back seat. Getting through the mall and stores with small isles is so easy because it is absolutely fabulous to maneuver! I always see other families with cumbersome double strollers trying to get in the door of stores, when the Phil & Ted stroller just glides in easily. I love jogging with it as well, the tires are so smooth and easy to push. I have never had another stroller that turned so easily either. I just kind of flick one wrist and it turns!!! So great when your hands are full with other kids besides baby! A+++ Maneuverability Excellent!!! Durability Handle is made of thick foam that get knicked easily.
i have 2 yrs apart boys. i can put either older one or groceries on the back. it was just too heavy to bring when you go travel...I had problem open it up at airport by myself with 2yrs one and 9months one. Design design was okay Safety okay Child Comfort especially on second seat my son didnt really like. too hard for lil kids back Maneuverability front tire moves good Durability my tires messed up a couple of times
PROs Traverses uneven side walk like a dream. looks cool, I get stopped by fathers who want to know about the cool spaceship stroller. Cons It's heavy. With two kids it's heavier. The smaller child goes in back and has to come out first due to the fact the stroller is unbalanced. Not a problem? What about when you get home and the 3 year old didn't fall asleep but the 6 month old did? There is no letting the baby sleep in the strolled inside. Ones out everyone is out. Those tire that make the ride so smooth? The go flat ... often. Had I know how much the tires would need to be changed I'd have bought stock in bike tires. Safety Five point harness great, unbalanced carriage fail. Child Comfort The back seater doesn't get to see much, Durability Tires... tires... tires. No quick chand on seat covers.
I have owned a Phil & Ted's e3 for about 3 years now (mine is actually gray :). I bought mine used off of a friend - who owned it for about 3 years before I purchased it off of her - so this stroller has been well loved for over 6 yrs - and is still going strong. I have the doubles kit, and a side saddle bag (which I hardly ever use). I also have the infant carseat adaptor for a peg primo viaggio - and it is fabulous. Favorite features: LOVE how smoothly it swivels. Love how I can do 2 kids at once! Like I said I have the infant car seat adaptor - and the manual says that you are not supposed to use the doubles kit (the lower seat) while using an infant car seat - but I do (I have an infant and a 3 yo) and it works fine. It is a little tight but my 3 yo wiggles in w/o a problem. the only con I can think of is that it is bulky and takes up a lot of room in my trunk - but well worth it IMO :)

After many many strollers, I finally have settled on one I love! I started with the bulky Graco travel system when my daughter was born, then went to Peg Perego which I love. When my second child was born I had to get a double and we went with a Graco......hated it! The wheels fell off and it was bulky! When my third was on his way it was time for a new double. I found out about the Phil and Teds and went for it. I love how it can be used as a single or double. It seems to get through all terrain because of it's larger wheels. I bought some of the extras like the hanging bag that holds drinks and has a zippered compartment, as well as the hanging bag for the front passenger. I love that it is versatile and lays flat for a newborn. I get so many questions about this stroller when we are out and about. I highly recommend it. The only drawback is that it is more expensive than other strollers, but this is one that you will be able to use for a long time. It is also pretty heavy.
My first two sons are eighteen months apart. We originally bought just the Phil & Ted's single knowing that soon we would buy the double seat for our second son. We have had it for over three years and it is holding up amazingly well. We get so many compliments and questions about it when we are out and about and I recommend it to everyone. It manuevers so easily and smoothly. It folds up very quickly and simply and it is not too heavy. I am petite and it is easy for me to lift it into the back of our SUV. It is a very durable stroller, we have taken it on many vacations and my husband has used it as a jogging stroller (as a single, not with the double seat attached). We have been so happy with this stroller. We also have the plastic wind cover and the handle bag, both of which come in handy. I especially love the handle bag so cups, small snacks, my keys and wallet. It is a helpful addition.
We have had the phil and ted sport stroller for a couple of years now. I love it! I love that it can be used from the time your baby is born up until they are big. Then when another baby comes along, you can add them in also. We researched long and hard before we spent the money on a stroller. I didn't want to end up with four or five strollers like a lot of people do, and I think we did pretty well. There are a couple of cons though. It is pretty pricey, the front wheel definitely shakes if you get into a fast jog or run, and it does take up a lot of space in the car. Oh and it doesn't have a cup holder. I would not recommend this stroller if you only have a sedan. It will take up the whole trunk. We had a cheap umbrella stroller for the trunk and for the airport, but otherwise we use the phil and teds stroller. It has been a great purchase and I can't wait to try it out when we have two kids. It is pricey, but I think we'd buy it again.
