LOVE this stroller!,
This review is from: Chicco Cortina Together Double Stroller, Fuego (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Baby Product)
This is the best double stroller out there to date. I LOVE this stroller! I've tried so many doubles that I've lost track, and I've hated them all. They're too long, too wide, too hard to steer, etc. Not this one!
The Chicco Together looks stylish and cool. I have the cubes pattern, and I really like it. The stroller frame seems to be sturdy and stable, and there aren't a lot of pieces on the stroller that will break. The stroller is tall, which makes it easy to get into the basket underneath. The adjustable handle is great. I put it on the middle setting and my husband puts it on the tallest setting and we're both comfortable pushing the stroller (I'm 5'5", he's 6'3"). We can both push the stroller without kicking the wheels. The wheels on the stroller have a little bit of cush to them - they're not completely hard, which makes for a nice ride for the kids. It is very easy to push, and the steering is phenomenal. The seats are on the smaller side, 14" wide, which I prefer. My 45 lb 4 year old would fit in them, but they're not huge. The weight recommendation is 40 lbs per seat, and a 40 lb child would easily fit in the seats. I like a smaller seating area for the kids. In some of the other strollers, my kids seemed to slop around in the huge seats. They are 6 months (23 lbs) and 2 1/2 years (28 lbs) and they are very comfortable in the seats. I like the five point harnesses, and the buckles seem to be good and sturdy. The front seat has the option of two cupholders or a bar. I opted to put the bar on, and was pleased to see that the bar is covered in fabric, rather than foamy material. The baby can chew on the bar (and she does!) without me being afraid she's going to bite a piece of foam off. The stroller is easy to fold and unfold, and I really like that when you fold the stroller, it stays folded. You don't have to flip a switch or a lever to make it stay. The stroller is not as long as lot of the doubles, which I love. I hate to feel like I'm pushing a train, and this stroller is definitely not a train. I believe it is 47 inches from the bar on the front to the handle. It is compact, while still having enough space for kids and bags. The fabric is well stitched and feels like it will hold up really well.
Overall, I am absolutely loving this stroller. Easy to push, easy to steer, sylish, comfortable, and great! I recommend it to anyone and everyone!

don't you miss that the back seat doesn't have a snack/cup holder for when your younger one can sit and eat? does the front toddler lay back without hitting the car seat if it's used?

thank you for mentioning the height of the stroller! unless someone is tall, it is hard for them to describe to you whether or not your feet hit the wheels when you push :)
