Durability

Very Good- 8/10

The Graco DuoGlider ranked as an 8 out of 10 in durability. Its wheels are made up of high-density rubber instead of traction, which makes them very durable and gives it better traction. The seats are also made of very durable fabric that will sustain many spills.

Weight

Very Good – 8/10

At around 28 pounds, this stroller is relatively lightweight for a double stroller. The Graco DuoGlider is light enough to fold up and carry in one hand for busy, on-the-go parents. This lighter weight makes this stroller very easy to push, even with two passengers.

Brakes

Very Good – 8/10

This double stroller has two parking brakes that are located on each rear wheel. These brakes are foot-operated, so this location is very convenient. To lock this stroller into place, you will need to step on both red levers at the same time.

Compact

Very Good- 7/10

This stroller is compact enough to fit into any standard doorway. It folds down to an even more compact size so that parents can stow it away with ease when it’s not being used. This stroller does not fold down to as small a size as other double strollers, but it still ranks on the higher end of the spectrum.

“It’s also fairly lightweight as double strollers go and easy to push. It folds flat if you remove some of the trays/canopies and fits easily into the back of my SUV – a Jeep Compass – which is not overly large.”

Ease of Use

Excellent – 10/10

The DuoGlider received a perfect score in this area. This is because of how easy it is to assemble, fold, and maneuver in crowded areas. It is possible to fold and even steer using only one hand with ease.

Folding

Very Good – 7/10

This stroller requires little to no effort when it comes to folding. All that’s needed to fold this stroller is the pull of a lever that is located on the handlebar. This motion collapses the stroller instantly and automatically locks it into place. The only downside of the folding aspect of this stroller is that it may not stand up when folded.

Grip

Very Good – 8/10

The handlebars on this stroller are not adjustable but sit at a comfortable height for the vast majority of parents. This padded handlebar sits at a height and at an angle that ensure that parents have good posture while pushing the stroller and are comfortable with its weight.

Maneuverability

Very Good- 8/10

The DuoGlider is easy to maneuver due to its lighter weight and its lockable front swivel wheels. It is easy to guide this stroller through tight, narrow spaces and packed areas because of its compactness and versatility.

“ove love. Easy to stroll. Can’t wait to use it at the mall. Got 3 toddlers and it perfect for the two youngest. Lots of space on the bottom. Was easy to set up and it reclines. Fits my 2011 toyota camry trunk. Was scared that it wouldn’t fit because it was a double stroller but it fit n I still have room in the car to but grocery in. Love this.”

Rough Terrain

Good – 5/10

Despite its being easy to maneuver, this stroller does not do as well on rough terrain. Its lockable swivel wheels have good traction, which makes it less susceptible to slipping on smooth surfaces, but they are not as accustomed to doing well on rougher surfaces such as gravel, rocky paths, or dirt trails.

Accessories

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller comes with cup holders, ample storage spaces, and a parent’s tray that comes with storage as well. Many reviewers agree that the cup holders are not big enough, but they are able to hold most bottles. Other accessories are available for purchase from Graco!

Easy to Assemble

Very Good – 7/10

It is not a huge task to assemble this stroller. Experienced parents may be able to assemble this stroller within 20 minutes or less. The manual that Graco provides is very thorough with easy-to-follow directions.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 8/10

This stroller is made up of water-resistant, stain-resistant fabric. To clean this stroller,  a washcloth, soap, and water are the only necessary tools needed.

” I love that our car seat can click right in and our 2 year old loves it. The storage can be difficult to access if you have the car seat in the back but not a deal breaker. Also, when going faster the front wheels can start to shake a bit but again not a huge deal. Overall really like this stroller a lot and can’t wait to use it for the years to come! “

Storage

Very Good – 7/10

The Graco DuoGlider comes with an extra large storage basket that parents have had no complaints about in terms of space! It has enough room to store all of your essentials such as diapers, toys, blankets, etc. The only downside is that when the seat in this stroller is reclined, it is very hard to access these items.

Child Comfort

Very Good – 8/10

The seats of the Graco DuoGlider are exceptionally comfortable because of their extra padding and multi-position recline. It also comes equipped with footrests and rotating canopies.

Sun CAnopy

Very Good – 8/10

This Graco DuoGlide has two medium-sized, adjustable canopies that are adjustable. These canopies are very efficient in blocking the sun and earned an 8 out of 10 in this category. The canopy in the front seat can also be removed if needed.

Suspension

Very Good – 8/10

The wheels of the DuoGlide have an effective suspension system that makes the ride for young passengers much smoother.

“. The DuoGlider Click Connect Double Stroller has every one of the basics a developing family needs. To keep both travelers pleasant and comfortable, both seats highlight a leaning back seat, kid’s plate, pivoting overhang, and footstool. ” – KidzGeek 

When having a new child, traveling becomes much more intense. Because of the needs of kids, you have to bring along a bunch of accessories and equipment to prepare for any issue that arises. Thus, when you have twins, that load is doubled, which can be a huge burden on new parents. Fortunately, the DuoGlider has a lot of storage space for all your extra gear, so you can keep everything together without having to carry extra baggage.” –  Stroller Buzz
