If you are all caught up on some of my other articles, you know that I think selecting the right stroller is all about finding your type. Well, for those of you that have come to the conclusion that your type is a double umbrella stroller, you have come to the right place, and honestly mad props to you. It took me until about number 4 to realize that just maybe I had it all wrong.
What I am about to say might just shock you a little bit, but I think umbrella strollers are actually a pretty solid option. Maybe they aren’t as sturdy as full-size strollers and they might not have the newest up-to-date accessories or additions, but do you know what they are? Convenient, convenient, convenient.
Let me tell you, parents of multiple kiddos just need convenience sometimes. So, let’s take a look at the best double umbrella strollers!
Best Double Umbrella Stroller in 2023
You are probably wondering why I am such a fan of the conveniences that umbrella strollers offer, so just hear me out. They are literally designed to be lightweight and break down in the most compact way possible. This means they are easy-peezy for one parent to whip out of the trunk of even the smallest sedans and accomplish whatever the day holds. And since I am a mighty 5′ 1″ having something lightweight is a pretty nice option.
Half of my life these days seems to be running errands and it’s way too big of a hassle to get anything bigger than an umbrella stroller out, just to be put back in after a run through Target.
Another thing they do well? Travel! Our family loves to travel, but all little ones need a break from the go-go-go mindset that can come along with that.
Bringing a stroller along that they can rest in makes everyone a happy camper. I do not want to be carrying my toddler around and as much as I would like to think frequenting the gym makes me capable of toting her all over on adventures, this mama’s arms get tired.
If you’ve got two kiddos from 1-5 years old, I say just go for it. Try out a double umbrella stroller. It’ll simplify your everyday life and your travels.
Keep in mind, I’m not trying to imply that you don’t need your nice big fancy double stroller. Depending on your family, you might be the kind of person who needs both the fancy stroller and the umbrella stroller.
What to Look for in a Double Umbrella Stroller
- Weight- The whole idea is to find the lightest possible stroller that your kids fit comfortably in and that you enjoy pushing.
- Folded Size- Again, this is for traveling and convenience so you want to find a double umbrella stroller that folds neatly and is compact.
- Unfolding & Folding- For a double umbrella stroller to be truly convenient, it has to do these things with ease. You want it to be easy and quick especially if your purpose in having one is for travel.
- Seats- There is tons of variance in seating in double umbrella strollers. Those with reclining seats and feet rests should be at the top of your list because they make naptime possible!
- Harness- What kind of harness you prefer is really a personal decision, just make sure it is something that will hold your little one in safely and comfortably. The safest option is always a five-point harness. You may also want to check how easy they are to adjust and buckle/unbuckle.
- How it Pushes- Since umbrella strollers are so lightweight, they can be a little hard to maneuver. If you can run to a Buy Buy Baby or similar store to test some out with your kids sitting in them and see how it feels.
- Accessories- These may be limited, but you can still have a list of accessories you would really like to have in your stroller like canopies or storage space.

This stroller is pricey, but for a good reason. It is really high quality and will last you quite a while.
The Zoe is one of the lightest weight and smallest folded double umbrella strollers. Despite it being super lightweight, it can still comfortably hold even your 4-year-olds, which is pretty incredible.

My husband is a big fan of bang-for-your-buck items and that is exactly what this double umbrella stroller will get you. You can get it for just about $100, which is just one of the reasons why this super lightweight stroller is a favorite of many parents.

The Joovy Scooter X2 is easy to maneuver, door-friendly side-by-side stroller. It is lightweight at just 32 pounds and folds down flat making storage easy.
I love that this stroller comes with a tray and cupholder for each child. This isn’t something you frequently find in lightweight umbrella-style strollers! The seats are completely independent of each other, so one child can be laid back while the other is sitting up. The Joovy Scooter X2 also has tons of storage!
Joovy Caboose Ultralight – Best Double Umbrella Stroller for a Newborn and Toddler
This one looks a little different from the other umbrella strollers on this list, but trust us, it’s different in a good way.

Evenflo Aero2 Ultra-Lightweight Double Stroller – Best Storage of the Double Umbrella Strollers
I have to start off by telling you my favorite thing about this stroller! There is a storage basket that you can attach to one of the front seats for extra storage if only one child is riding and it stores underneath when you have a 2nd rider. There are also mesh pockets on the inside of each seat which can serve as snack and sippy cup holders.
Like most strollers on this list, it features a 5-point harness for safety. The seats also recline individually (some umbrella strollers don’t have this option which can be frustrating) and have large canopy tops with UPF 50+.
Summer Infant 3DPac CS – Car Seat Compatible Umbrella Stroller
This is another great light weight umbrella stroller. One thing that really sets it apart is that its car seat compatible with the Graco SungRide Click Connect, Chicco KeyFit 30, Chicco Fit2, and Baby Trend Secure Snap Gear 35! You don’t even have to use an adapter! Keep in mind, though, it can only carry one infant car seat at a time.

I love the large storage baskets on the bottom and snack trays for both the parents and the kids.

Maclaren strollers are some of the best umbrella strollers in my opinion. They have front wheels that can handle bumps and cracks in the road. This stroller has some very comfortable seats which recline.
