Side by side double buggy

Hi there, I need a side by side double buggy for my son (13 months) and my nephew (10 months) for the family and our nanny. I want one that is robust but as lightweight and narrow as possible so she can get them out and about on public transport. Any recommendations?

I'd also love to know how people manage double buggys on escalators?! Is it safe? Thanks!

I had an OutNAbout Nipper 360 a few years ago. At the time we had no car but we went on the tube regularly, you just hold the back on escalators and lift the front wheel up, we also travelled loads by bus in London. It was so easy - people often help and the buggy itself was light and robust. We took it on holiday to Barbados, France and South Africa.

Mychild easy twin
Mountain buggy duet ( v2.5 or new v3)
65cm and 62cm wide each which is narrower than my vista single x

Mountain buggy duet - easy to steer, lightweight, only 63cm wide so fits almost everywhere a single buggy would fit.

We had a babyjogger city mini double and I loved it but when I found out I was expecting no 3 we got an out n about 30 instead as it works better with a buggy board. Both are lightweight and narrow. The bj has excellent full canopies and good storage that the nipper lacks but the nipper is lighter and easier to steer and maneuver. I found the babyjogger easier to fold too.

I had an out'n'about 360 nipper when I was a childminder. Easiest buggy I ever had to push, even laden with heavy 3 yr olds and shopping. Will go over uneven terrain easily and fits on the bus too. Quick release for the front wheel to make fitting it in the car is handy as well.
