    You think the BJ double is too wide? Can you get around the shops with it? Is it really heavy to lift in and out of the car etc?

    I like the BJCS but heard it was super long and also that their wasn't much leg room for a toddler if using as a double?
    The GT is pretty heavy lifting in and out of the car, I don't really take it out much unless walking but haven't had a problem going through aisles or checkouts with it. The normal mini double would be much lighter but not so great for walking if you do a bit of that. Normal narrow sized doorways it definitely doesn't fit.

    I got the BJCS not long after my 3rd was born its great to use when you have two small children in it. I found putting the baby at the front easier to steer as they are lighter then the toddler. We had no problem with leg room with the toddlers and that was even when the girls were 2&3. I would say the size of the seat is on par with a lot of the other prams like it.

Do you think there is enough storage (there is no mesh bags on back of seat or handlebar storage like other brands).

    Do you reckon its all worth given it is as narrow as a single?
    I think the seats are big enough, its obviously not super spacious but my kids are both quite tall and I think it will last till my eldest is 3ish. I wasn't concerned with that when I bought it.
    The fabric on the seat is strange and I didn't notice it till I got home but its caused no dramas, and Im getting seat liners which will stop food crumbs getting under the fold.

    They've never seemed too hot, even with a sun cover over it. I walk a lot,even on warm days.
    The storage basket underneath holds heaps. I have everything to change both babies under mine plus the other day I had 6 litres of milk, groceries, and my friends hand bag, I usually hang my hand bag over the handles and it never tips, it also comes with a bottle holder that goes on the handle which fits my drink bottle in.

    I think it's worth it, I researched twin prams for my entire pregnancy so I researched everything. And other than the bugaboo donkey this is the only one i really considered.
