The EasyWalker DUO is a sturdy double buggy with bags of style and a smooth ride. But be warned – it’s not for those tight on space.
The EasyWalker DUO is a twin buggy, which means your children are side by side. It’s an attractive buggy, with a stylish, modern look. It feels robust, and its large wheels provide a bump-free ride even when tackling uneven paving stones.
Whether you’re pushing twins or just a baby and toddler about, the EasyWalker DUO has a choice of seating arrangements. Most importantly, the two pushchair seats can recline independently of each other, and feature four different recline positions. You can also purchase a carrycot, or carrycots, for £139 each. The carrycot can be used from birth to 6 months, and lets your baby lie in a completely flat position. It also puts your baby in a parent (rear) facing position, which some experts feel is good for your baby. The carrycot comes with a mattress, blanket cover, raincover and mosquito net.
You can also create a travel system by purchasing Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix car seats, £115 each, and EasyWalker car seat adapters, £39.99 each (two adaptors are required for each car seat you want to attach).
What we love
One of the biggest attractions of the EasyWalker DUO for me is the flexible seating options. Depending on what extras you buy, you could use the EasyWalker DUO in five different combinations: two carrycots; two car seats; one carrycot and one regular seat; one car seat with one regular seat; or two regular seats. Even with just the two pushchair seats, being able to recline one but not the other is very useful.
This buggy also looks great and feels extremely sturdy. It some ways, it’s a little similar to a 3-wheeler jogging buggy, though it actually has four wheels. Due to the robust frame and wheels, it’s a great option for mums who walk a lot, especially over uneven terrain.
My son, Sam, 2, liked the EasyWalker DUO’s wide seats and enjoyed the smooth ride it gave over bumpy pavements.
I also tried the buggy with one pushchair seat and an optional car seat attached. Dropping Sam at nursery while Charlotte, 3 months, was having a nap in her car seat was great, as I didn’t need to wake her to put her into the buggy.
What to watch out for
The EasyWalker DUO is heavy. The optional carrycot alone weighs 4.7kg. It’s large, too, and wouldn’t fit through my front door unless it was taken apart and the frame folded, which doesn’t exactly make for a quick getaway and then means I had to spend time putting the seat back onto the frame. The EasyWalker DUO was also too big to fit into my car boot (I drive a Honda Civic, which fits most other double buggies).
With a price tag of £599, before you add carrycots or car seats and adaptors, the EasyWalker DUO isn’t cheap.
Who is the EasyWalker DUO best for?
Mums with space to spare after a robust twin buggy.
The EasyWalker DUO is very attractive double buggy, with options to suit both twin mums and mums-of-two. Its large wheels can handle any terrain, while your children are warm and comfy onboard. However, the weight and the size of the DUO will mean it’s not a twin buggy that will suit every family.
