SMM Experience:

Before receiving this stroller, the only double stroller I had was a very expensive one that was difficult to fold and store, heavy and had no storage.  I currently owned a Combi single lightweight stroller and loved it, so I couldn't wait to try this one!

Unpacking/Assembly:
This was really easy. The stroller came 95% assembled and all I had to put on were two of the front wheels (simply push on until they click) and the front guardrails. This took all of a few minutes and my stroller was ready!

Appearance:
This is a new print for Combi and it is really wonderful! Of course, my favorite color is red and I have always wanted a red stroller, so I was in heaven!  What is nice about the print is that it is gender neutral but still has lots of color style!  I always try to buy gender neutral, but get really frustrated when it seems the only options are black (or some gray version), BORING!! This print is the perfect color combination that gives you a stroller that people will stop and admire, while also being perfect for any little one sitting in it!

Weight:
Light, light, light!  As a petite person, having a cumbersome heavy double just doesn't work for me! This stroller is perfect for me!  It is super light and really easy to move around with no problem. I easily carried it down into our garage with one hand!

Storage:
The stroller has two very accessible and good sized baskets on the bottom.  No, they likely won't fit a big diaper bag, but I never find that to be an issue, as there is plenty of room for my quick on-the-go bag and any other essentials I need!
There are also two storage pockets on the back of the seats.  I found these were perfect for holding the kids drinks while we were taking our walk or playing at the park.

Comfortability:

 The padding on the seats is nice and thick and both my kids were very comfortable!  Of course it's winter here, so they had their heavy coats on, but even still they fit snuggly into the seats and were able to rest their heads on the comfy headrests.
For the person pushing the stroller, the handle is padded in a nice foam that is easy to grip and comfortable to handle.  Although the handle can't be raised or lowered, I found that it's a good height for myself (at 5'2"), as well as my husband (5'10").
Below the seats are two footrests that were the perfect height for my 3 year old and my 15 month old almost could put her little feet on. These can easily be folded up if not needed. 
Security:
This product comes with a wonderful 5 point harness in each seat.  The harness can be easily adjusted for the height of the child and it takes just two clicks and it's secure! As a parent, I want the ability to easily snap together or apart the harness and it's just one button which I found easy and efficient! Also, you can simply remove the two shoulder harnesses and just use it as a belt harness for older ones.
Additionally, it comes with two removable guardrails.  I used both with my kids, as my 15 month old requires both the harness and rail, but my 3 year old only needs the rail.  For him, it's just a reminder of his boundaries when sitting in the stroller.  The rails are soft, flexible and covered in a nice mesh material.

Washability:
As a mom, this is important!  Because, as we all know, it is only a matter of time before something is spilled or spit up on this beautiful fabric. Well, the seat pads are completely and easily removable and machine washable.  This is wonderful because I can say that unfortunately this is not always the case with all strollers. Combi knows that parents want to get the full life and avlue out of their products!

Braking System:
The stroller has five brakes!  Yes, that's a brake for almost every single wheel (there are 6 wheels). These brakes are easily applied by just a quick push of your foot and then released with the opposite motion. It couldn't be easier!

Peek A Boo, I See You!:
This stroller has two "peek-a-boo" viewers in the top of the canopy. These are great for taking a quick peak at the kids and making sure all is well up front.

Road Test:
After fully exploring the stroller in our home, it was time for a good old fashioned spin around the block and to the park! Now, please keep in mind that although we are told it is Spring, the weather is anything but and on this nice "spring day" it was a chilly 35 degrees, so my kids are nice and bundled, making them appear much larger than they actually are. 
Step 1: Getting in the kids:
Easy, easy, easy.  I just put the 15 month old in and adjusted the harness slightly for height and snapped it together and she was ready to go.  My 3 year old actually climbed right in himself, so that required no effort at all! Total time: 2 minutes (at the most!).
Step 2: Our Stroll Around the Block:
The stroller moved with ease over our bumpy sidewalks and easily fit within the width of the sidewalk.  It maneuvered across the roads just fine and handled really well.  It was so light that it was really easy to turn with over 50 pounds of kid in it and much easier to maneuver than many other strollers I have ever tried. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the ride and there were zero complaints about it being too bumpy and they wanted to keep going on forever!
Step 3: The Park:
Our park has mulch and usually I take my stroller onto the mulch to get to the various areas and follow my 3 year old around.  I easily pushed this stroller onto the mulch, again with the 50+ lbs. of kid in it and it handles wonderfully!  It went right over the mulch without a problem and I was able to get right to where I wanted to park it for our little adventure.
Step 4: Wrangling the Kids:
It was the end of our park adventure, and as many of you know, that is not usually the favorite part for the kids. My 15 month old was a little squirmy when I was trying to get her back into the stroller, but it was really quick and easy!  I should mention that I was able to get her in and buckled all while keeping one arm around my protesting 3 year old who did not want to go home. 3 is a fun but trying age and this time he wouldn't climb into the seat on his own, but I easily lifted him up and put him right into place.  With the quick upward click of the brakes, we were off!
Step 5: Storage:
Every parents nightmare!  You have all these wonderful products, but where do you put them?!  Well, Combi really has figured this out!  The stroller easily folds like a taco and then vertically in half!  It seriously folds up smaller than some of my single strollers! After folding it, you can carry it by the strap on the back and then we hang it on a hook in our garage.  Total time: 3 minutes!

Overall, this stroller was attractive, lightweight, versatile and feature packed!  It was easy to setup and put away.  My kids and I all enjoyed the ride!  I would highly recommend this for anyone who has multiple children to care for, as it is a great investment that I know will last a lifetime!
