Double buggy - Mountain Buggy Duet or Out n About Nipper

Do you have either/both and if so, which would you recommend?

I am pregnant and when the baby arrives will have three under three. My oldest is already a good and confident walker, but might occasionally need to go in the buggy (so another child can go in the sling).

Just looking for advice really. I would be using the pram for roads and also woodland walks.

Definitely nipper 360 imo. The mb is almost as big folded as it is unfolded and much heavier to push. The good thing about the new mb is that it is very narrow and fits through our front door where the nipper wouldn't so that's something to consider.

We've had both and the nipper wins hands down.
The mountain buggy was just so heavy to lift into the boot and it then took the whole boot up, also found it heavier to push.

The nipper is an absolute dream to push, can still push it one handed with 4yr old twins in, equals doesn't feel wonkey when only one of them is still seated in it.

Wishing we'd brought the nipper initially.

Thank you. I think I need to look at both of them side by side in a shop and maybe also the City Mini.

We had the nipper. Absolutely fantastic buggy.

May not be the safest thing but it's quite possible to get an older 3rd child, with tired legs, to sit on the front footplate. In fact we have on occasion had 5 kids in it, 2 in each seat and one on the footplate!

A dream to push even loaded with 2 heavy 4 yr olds. Loads of storage both in the hood and underneath.

We had the single nipper too, loved both.

Mountain buggy duet! I had a 22 month gap, and it was perfect. I had very long but slim babies so the younger one was cosy in the lie flat pram part (bought separately)- but had he been a 'chunky' baby it would have been a squeeze. He was then able to nearly lie flat in the buggy section.
The 4 wheels was a big bonus- even little things like a big curb meant that we were balanced (the toddler is obviously heavier than the newborn and we didn't want it to tip) - plus we used trains quite a lot, so having 3 wheels was a non starter. We also used to go for long walk s over parks, and the air tyres were perfect for that terrain.

One of the main points about the mountain buggy is that it fitted through our front door. The out and about, did not- nor did the baby jogger. Mountain buggy was the narrowest we found. Our daughter at comfortably in it until we sold it when she was 3 1/2 - with puffy winter coats too!

I have the outnabout and love it. It's very light, roomy seats for both baby and toddler. It's cheaper than the mountain buggy. Keep a look out on their website for a factory second. They come with a 2 year gaurantee. They are only seconds because of a scratch or mark on the material.

I had considered and looked at the mountain buggy. Outnabout won purely because it was lighter and had wider seats and everyone raves about it.

Have had both and the nipper wins on everything, i can fit it through standard size doors, its lighter, easier to push and have had 2 year old twins in it and a 3 year old sat on the footplate and because you can fix the front wheel ive never had any chance of it tipping. Oh i also run with mine.
