Look out Phil & Teds. First Bugaboo decided to get in on the double stroller action and now Britax has entered the lucrative fray. We've been testing out the B-Ready--a double stroller that stacks--and give it high marks.

Rolling in at 26" wide, we could get this stroller through most narrow entrances on our NYC tests. The new Bugaboo Donkey hogs up an additional 4" when in double mode (not to mention the $1650 price tag), making this a savings of space and cash.

The top seat holds a child from 6 mos to 55lbs--but can be used for an infant with the click in car seat position. The bottom seat will fit a child from birth to 35 lbs. But these seats are only the basic configuration. You can also put in car seats and bassinets and have the seats face forward or rear. The ride is smooth--but not as plush as the Bugaboo which has pneumatic tires. The fold is extremely easy (see video demo) and we found strolling this to be great fun.

Expect to pay:$499.99 for the single stroller and $149.99 for the second seat.

What we love:
14 positions stroller configuration
Adjustable shoulder restraints are the best we've ever tested
Top and bottom seats recline
Flip flip-friendly brake
7 fashion colors!

What we don't:
Weird storage sack that affixes near the stroller wheels. This is where we're supposed to keep our baby bottles--but dog urine and street sludge! Ew.

Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a stroller to road test and donated it to our preschool auction.
