Overall, so far very pleased with this stroller. We have used it several times for light walking around our neighborhood. I have read one review that described a bowing in the center due to unequal weight distribution but we are not experiencing that with our kids (although they are only 10 pounds apart right now). It is easy to maneuver and push; even my husband commented that he was surprised with how light it was considering the size (30" wide) and the weight of the kids. It maneuvers much better than our single Graco 4-wheel stroller.The fabric is durable and there is ample storage. The basket underneath is wide but somewhat shallow (diaper bags would probably have to be stored on their side), however there are 2 additional storage pockets behind each seat. The large, independent canopies are great. My only quirks are that it is a little awkward to unfold (but maybe I will perfect a more graceful unfolding with more practice), and the seat reclining mechanism could probably be a lot better. Since the tires are air filled, I carry a mini bicycle tire pump in case they need to be pumped up while we are out and about (we had to pump the tires after assembling the stroller and using it for the first time, but haven't had to since).
Update: We have had this for about a year now and my only complaint is regarding the tires. After ample use, the tires get flat every so often. We carry a small bike tire pump which in the beginning fixed the problem easily, but then again, we only experienced flat rear tires in the beginning. Once the front tire started to flatten, then we had issues! A regular floor pump and both our mini pumps are EXTREMELY difficult to latch onto the front tire valve because there just isn't enough room to get the pump head through the spoke opening. We also cannot pull the valve tube out far enough whereas in the rear tires, you can pull them out a little to get a better angle to latch a pump. Other than that, the stroller is still holding up well.
