The Lowdown: The Bumbleride Indie Twin stroller is one of the most stylish double strollers on the market. Paired with its air-filled tires, adjustable handlebar, and beautiful, vivid color options, the Indie Twin is one of the most luxurious double strollers we've tried. Still, at $550, there are comparable models on the market that cost $100-$200 less and offer similar benefits.
One of the strongest pluses to the Indie Twin stroller is its suitability to both indoor activities and outdoor activities. Thanks to those air-filled tires and lockable front wheels, the Indie Twin can be used as a jogging stroller and is perfect for use on rough, outdoor terrain. Its frame, however, is slightly lighter and more narrow than similar models, making it better for indoor shopping or more urban activities.
Another fantastic feature is the Indie's large comfortable seats. An adjustable footrest makes the stroller perfect for older children. The Indie comes with an extended zip-off canopy and a rain cover, making it ideal for many types of inclement weather. Storage is adequate, but parents should be aware that the shallowness of the under-carriage storage basket can make it easier for toys or bags to fall out.
The one major drawback to the Indie Twin stroller is its multistep collapsing procedure and less-than-compact fold. Folding the stroller takes two hands, three steps and a lot of strength. It does have a latch to keep it closed, but the larger frame means it takes up the majority of a sedan trunk and is impossible to stash in a closet.
