Ease of Use

Very Good – 8/10

The Expedition Double Jogger receives an 8 out of 10 for ease of use due to its relatively simple design. Despite having a good amount of features, there is nothing too complicated about this stroller leaving it with a fairly intuitive and easy-to-use design.

Folding

Excellent – 9/10

This strollers frame allows for an easy fold. Two hands are required but the locking mechanism is fairly simple and the stroller does self stand when folded.

Grip

Very Good – 7/10

The Baby Trend Expedition Double Jogger Stroller has a handle that sits 40 inches above the ground that cannot be adjusted. There is a rubber cover that surrounds most of the handle which provides a solid grip.

Maneuverability

Excellent – 10/10

“I put it together by myself very quickly and easily. It was packaged well, and for the most part is assembled right out of the box. The only things that I had to do were pop the wheels into place and screw on the foot rest and parent tray on the top.”

Rough Terrain

Good – 6/10

Being a jogger, this stroller does not excel off road. However, it is still perfectly useable. Just not for jogging purposes.

Accessories

Good – 6/10

This stroller does come with a large parent organizer tray along with 2 mesh cup-holders on the sides of the stroller. There is no option for a child snack tray and the storage basket is divided into two halves preventing storage of any larger, bulkier items.

Easy to Assemble

Excellent – 9/10

Users report having an easy time assembling this stroller. All that is required is too pop on the wheels and footrest. A full assembly can be done in under 10 minutes.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 7/10

A quick wipe down should resolve any dirtiness.

“Toddler can sit on the front or push the babies legs to the side and she rides in the middle. Would recommend.”

Storage

Very Good – 8/10

Under the seats there is a large storage basket. The only problem is that it is split into two halves by a divider through the middle. The storage bin can be accessed from behind and has a weight capacity of roughly 5 pounds.

Child Comfort

Excellent – 9/10

The Expedition Double Jogger does provide a surprising amount of comfort for your little one which is important especially for joggers. The padding under the fabric of the stroller is fairly plush and there is a full recline offered.

Sun Canopy

Excellent – 9/10

The sun canopy on this stroller is medium size with ventilation. It also does have a peak-a-boo window with flap cover and can be rotated foreword for protection from the sun and wind.

Suspension

Good – 6/10

The stroller itself does actually not have a suspension system which is questionable especially for a jogger. However, the rubber tires and the sling style seats will partially compensate for that.
