Reviews generally say side-by-side strollers are easier to steer than tandem strollers, and the Inglesina Twin Swift double stroller's 29-inch width ensures it will fit through most doors and grocery aisles. The two seats recline independently (including a nearly flat position). Parents say the 28-pound Twin Swift stroller steers extremely well, and the handles are comfortable even for tall drivers. The Inglesina Twin Swift also gets very high marks for durability. Parents wish there were a cup holder and more storage space. Parents appreciate that the Twin Swift is about the size of a golf bag when collapsed, which makes it significantly more compact than other twin strollers. If your budget is tight, you might want to take a look at the Kolcraft Jeep Wrangler All-Weather Twin Sport (*Est. $100) or the tandem Graco DuoGlider (*Est. $130). But keep in mind that the Inglesina Twin Swift does get consistently better reviews than any of these from both experts and owners. For an all-terrain double stroller, the Mountain Buggy Urban Double (*Est. $750) is pricey and heavy, but parents say it's very maneuverable.
The most credible expert review of the Inglesina Twin Swift double stroller comes from the popular baby gear book "Baby Bargains," written by consumer advocates Denise and Alan Fields. We also found good coverage of this model at Baby-Gaga.com, along with some parent-written reviews at Epinions.com and LilaGuide.com. Disappointingly, ConsumerReports.org hasn't included the Inglesina Twin Swift in its latest round of stroller testing.

There are only a handful of reviews of the Inglesina Twin Swift at Amazon.com, because older reviews are lost when new fabric colors are introduced. Most parents are very pleased with this stroller, but one is very upset with Inglesina's poor customer service.
