The Most Narrow Double Strollers to Easily Navigate Tight Spaces
- 1 Best Double Strollers that are Narrow
- 2 Ready to Make the Decision?
Double strollers are typically wider than regular single strollers due to their very design, but that can be a bit of a problem while trying to stroll through narrow, doors, hall closets and vestibules. Although, even the narrowest double stroller won’t exactly be as narrow as a single stroller, you will definitely benefit if your double stroller is as narrow as possible. That cannot come at the cost of quality though, because if your baby is not really comfortable in a particularly narrow double stroller, then the product fails in its primary purpose.

In order to help you stroll and navigate easily through narrow lanes and crowded subway cars, we have put together a list of the narrowest double stroller options for you. We have included narrow side-by-side double stroller alternatives that are quite “slim” and generally better if both kids in the family are almost of the same age (kids always fight for equality!). Tandem double strollers on the other hand can at times be a bit of a pain to steer due to their length and once the younger child grows up, the smaller seat won’t be a good option anymore.
This is where side-by-side strollers gain an upper hand due to their equally comfortable seating arrangement. If however, your children have more than two years in between them, sit and stand strollers would be ideal.
Best Double Strollers that are Narrow
BOB Revolution Flex Duallie Stroller
The 2016 Revolution Flex Duallie weighs 33.1 lbs and can easily carry kids of and up to 50 lbs on each of its two seats. What makes this narrow side-by-side double stroller an entrant in our list is its 30.5-inch width, which is narrow enough to fit through doorways, as well as being spacious enough to make both your children comfortable and happy. Each of the seats are 12.5-inch wide, with sufficient leg space. The Revolution Flex Duallie is also one of the best jogging double strollers around, so if you are into fitness, there’s absolutely no reason as to why you should not go for it.
Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller
Another side-by-side stroller that makes getting through tight doorways a breeze is the extremely popular City Mini Double. Although it weighs just 26.6lbs, this narrow double stroller can carry up to 100lbs (50lbs on each seat) in baby weight. It is just 29.75-inches wide with 11-inches shoulder width and 12.5-inches knee width. The “Quick Fold” mechanism lets you fold the stroller with a single move and even with such a compact build, it allows for ample storage via a large under-the-seat basket and pockets at the back of the seat. There’s also enough suspension in the front wheels to keep your child from feeling the occasional bumps.
Mountain Buggy Duet Double Stroller
This is certainly one of the narrowest double stroller in the market, when it comes to side-by-side units. It measures only 24.5-inches in width and weighs in at 34lbs. Unfortunately, the maximum weight capacity is limited to a slightly disappointing 80lbs (both seats combined). The super narrow width alone makes this ideal for strolling through tight spaces without bumping into walls and doorways. You can also fold it with one hand and hear a “satisfying” click when the automatic frame lock is properly set. The front wheels can be locked or unlocked, depending on the terrain and thanks to its 10-inch air-filled wheels which provide sufficient suspension; the Duet can maneuver through rough terrains with ease.
Contours Options Elite Tandem Stroller
You can arrange and rearrange the seats on the Elite in seven different positions, within the narrow width of only 26-inches. The award winning product is compatible with baby car seats from various manufacturers and that is always a bonus. The stroller itself is a bit on the heavier side with 34lbs in total weight, and can carry up to 40lbs on each seat comfortably. Feature wise, it includes reclining seats, a huge storage basket, UPF 50+ extendable canopies, a peek-a-boo window and a parent cup holder to name a few. This tandem double stroller looks and strolls very well due to the rubber coated EVA wheels at the back, built with adequate suspension.
Baby Trend Sit N Stand Double Stroller
One of the narrowest double strollers available, this is the most popular Baby Trend sit and stand model. It’s just 21.5-inches wide and 32.5lbs in weight. Nonetheless, it can still carry two children of 40lbs on both the front and the back seat. The older child can also enjoy a bit of liberty by standing on the rear standing platform if he/she wishes to. The double stroller is also easy to fold and even has a fairly large basket to carry diaper bags and other baby stuff in it. The good news is that it can fit two infant car seats if you need to and the selection of compatible car seats is a wide one as well.
BOB Ironman Duallie Stroller
The BOB Ironman Duallie stroller is a narrow double jogging stroller that you want to look out for if you are into jogging or even running for that matter. Each of the seats are capable of carrying up to 50lbs smoothly through your jogging sessions, thanks to a fantastic suspension system, fixed front wheel and 16-inch high pressure aluminum alloy wheels. The weight of the side-by-side stroller itself is 33.1lbs, with a width of 30.6-inches (77.7-cm) overall. Each of the seats is 12.5-inch (31.8-cm) wide individually, which provides enough room for each of your kids to sit in comfortably.
Ready to Make the Decision?
As you have probably noticed by now, the narrowest double stroller in a side-by-side configuration available is the Mountain Buggy Duet, while the BOB Ironman Duallie and the BOB Revolution Flex Duallie are the ultimate narrow double jogging stroller.
The Baby Jogger City Mini Double on the other hand is a tried and tested side-by-side stroller that offers much functionality without sacrificing anything in the comfort department. You can bank on the Contours Options Elite Tandem Stroller because it’s an award winning product that’s narrow and sturdy at the same time. Lastly, if your family has two children with a bit of an age gap, you cannot go wrong with the Baby Trend Sit N Stand Double Stroller, as it has been made with exactly such families in mind. Now that you know what to look for, go buy one with confidence!
