Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller Review – Thoughts By Brandi

“I just want to start by saying that this post is NOT sponsored by Bumbleride but I have a deep love for our Bumbleride Indie Twin double stroller that is so worth sharing with all of you. It is hands down my favorite double stroller for day-to-day use, walking around town and tackling tough terrain. The Bumbleride Indie twin can handle just about anything you throw at it and we couldn’t be happier with our double stroller.

Not only is this my preferred stroller, the Bumbleride Indie Twin is the babes preferred stroller as well! It’s tall, the shade is huge, and the ride is so smooth. Because we’ve mostly given up napping, we often walk to the park and picnic and then walk home and these two always fall asleep on the walk home. It’s the perfect “put your baby to sleep” stroller. If I know we are going to be some place where I need the babes to sit quietly and comfortably in a stroller for any extended period of time, the bumbleride is my go-to.

There are so many reasons why I love this stroller… it’s not only my favorite for the babes, but it’s my favorite for myself. It’s surprisingly difficult to find a double stroller that can go over just about any terrain with two 3 year olds in it while I push with one hand and drink my coffee. The Bumbleride Indie Twin glides over just about anything with ease, which makes pushing it more enjoyable, and less like a chore.

Here’s a list of reasons why I am such a fan of the Bumbleride Indie Twin.

-One-handed push

-Tough rubber grip for running and standing fold (won’t tear like foam handle bars)

-Standing slim fold (the smallest among all other double side by side strollers) please note that if you’re going from a single to a double, this stroller will still feel big but compared to other side by side all terrain strollers, it is in fact the smallest/most compact!

-Removable and washable fabric, even the canopies can be taken off and washed!

-Slim design, fits through all standard doorways, even the tiny ones in old buildings!

-4 wheels vs 3 which makes for more stability and smoother stroll!

-All wheel suspension (a must have for coffee runs)

-Air filled tires, sometimes this is a pain but for the most part, we don’t have issues and it makes jogging and trails so much smoother

-Appearance, it’s sleek and the color options are amazing, we have the Maritime blue and love it.

-Storage, the biggest storage basket on a side by side double, two storage pockets on the backs of each seat and two zip storage pouches on the backside of each canopy! Also a little toy or water bottle storage on the inside of each seat for the kiddos to use!

-Easy add on glider board, I will say, sometimes the glider board gets in the way but if you take smaller steps, it’s not a big deal! Extends the life of the stroller making it easy to use with 3 kids!

-Lay flat design so can be used from birth without any add ons… you can buy the bassinet but you don’t have to!

-Adjustable foot rest, so great for napping and for little legs!

-Extended canopy!

If you use your stroller often and for long distances, this is the stroller for you! I don’t think this is a great stroller if you’re a speed runner but for the average jogger like myself and my husband, this has met all our running needs.

There are a few things I wish this stroller had, mainly a decelerating handbrake for our extremely hilly neighborhood but because it’s so light and easy to push, it’s also easy to navigate down hills. We have logged miles upon miles on this stroller and it is still going strong. From photography walks to beach trips, the Bumbleride Indie Twin has yet to disappoint us.” – Brandi

Bumbleride Indie Twin Review

“This is more expensive side-by-side double stroller, but the quality and versatility are definitely worth the money. Bumbleride Indie Twin accepts two infant car seats and two bassinets so parents can use it from birth.

It’s not only a top-notch twin stroller, but also a great double stroller for siblings. All thanks to excellent stability and weight distribution.

The regular seats feature near-flat recline, there are also adjustable calf rests.You can actually use the full recline and calf rest raised all the way up to convert the seat into infant-mode. It provides secured and enclosed space for small infant.

It can be even used for a newborn baby but since the seat is facing front, you wouldn’t be able to observe your baby (except for the viewing window on the canopy). That’s why I think getting a bassinet for newborn baby is better option, particularly for frequent walks.

But it’s nice to have a newborn-ready seat, especially since this double stroller is quite pricey and not all parents may have extra budget for the carrycots.

The maximum weight capacity is 45 lbs for each seat. Based on customer reviews I can tell you that Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller will most certainly serve you up to 3-3.5 years.

I love how well-padded and cushy the seats are. They are perfect for naps on-the-go, no matter how old your babies are.

Another noteworthy features are the two large canopies that extend really far. They even pass over the bumper bars! Even when the seat is fully reclined the canopy provides great amount of shade. Thanks to that you can be sure that the sun won’t disturb your kiddo’s nap. No more worries about sun in baby’s eyes!…” READ MORE

Beautiful design, easy to handle and great features!

“We LOVE our Bumbleride strollers and have recommended them to all our family and friends. The indie twin is so easy to push and maneuver even with two kids in it! It’s also great for infants – I put my 2 month old into it without having to use the carseat which just makes life easier! The harness is really comfortable and easy to use for a baby. I love the new extended sunshades to keep the kids shaded and the storage space below is great. Its also just a beautifully designed product.” – Rebecca

Bumbleride Adventures with Tessa Byars

“Our kids have more impressive travel logs than many adults. In just the first two years of her life our daughter had traveled by plane, train, car, bike, skis, ferry, raft, and canoe and had been to over a dozen states and Canada. We never intended to be on the go so much, but work trips, weddings, family reunions and vacations kept us heading to the airport or packing the car every few weeks. Each time we went somewhere, we became more comfortable and confident traveling with our kids.

The first road trip we took was when my daughter was eight weeks old. We both were fortunate to have some time off work, so we set out on a winter road trip from our home in Ventura, California to our old stomping grounds in Jackson, Wyoming with our fingers crossed. As expected with an infant, there was plenty of screaming and many freezing cold, side of the road diaper changes and nursing, but we made it and we loved the experience. That was true with each subsequent adventure—there were always bumps in the road or turbulence in the air—but getting through them and figuring things out together was incredibly satisfying.

One of the keys to success traveling with two kids was having the right gear. We have a tendency to bring everything including the kitchen sink, so this was (and still is) always a challenge for us. By the time we took our second big road trip, we were well-traveled and knew that we just needed the essentials. We have found that the best gear, especially with kids involved, is durable, lightweight, multi-functional, simple, eco-friendly and of course it has to look good too. With our daughter, we took our Bumbleride stroller with us everywhere we went, and when our son was born we upgraded to a double. It certainly served as a stroller, but just as importantly as a luggage carrier, beach cart and instrument caddy—when there weren’t any kids in it.

I always imagined that with two children we would stay home more, invite family and friends to visit us and avoid flying at all costs, but when our son was eight weeks old, we set out on a 45-day road trip through California and Oregon. We had learned a few things from the first trip two years before, so we kept our travel plans simple, open-ended and planned to drive no more than about 200 miles every few days. We made more space in the minivan by adding cargo boxes to the roof, a bike rack on the hitch, and made sure the diaper bag, a change of clothes, food, and the stroller were easily accessible. Even though people told us we were crazy, and there were certainly times we wondered if that was true, overall it was such a fun adventure and the sweetest time bonding with the newest member of our family.” – Tessa
