Maclaren Twin Triumph Review

good

This side-by-side umbrella stroller comes with a carrying strap and rain cover, two under seat storage baskets, and 5-point harnesses in both seats. It accommodates children up to 55 pounds in each seat but does not accept infant car seats. Users like the compact profile and super easy handling.

Maclaren strollers remain a favorite of parent and expert reviewers for their light weight, compact profile, and effortless maneuverability. It's the high cost that deters some buyers, but Maclaren Twin Triumph reviews indicate this one is worth stretching into the higher realms of the Cheapism price range. Recommended by expert testers and a Baby Gizmo Best Pick, this umbrella-style side-by-side is a sound option for frequent travelers or urbanites who are short on space. Reviews at Baby Earth note its portability, cargo space, and smooth ride but grouse about the small sun canopies and lack of cup holders and snack trays. One post at Albee Baby reports comfort for young passengers and easy pushing and turning for the adult operator.

Features such as height-adjustable handles (three positions), one-handed fold, generous storage baskets, lockable double swivel wheels, and a carrying strap make this double stroller stand out. The Twin Triumph (starting at $220, Amazon) cannot accommodate infant car seats, but each seat features multiple reclines and a five-point harness; the specs say it's suitable for newborns. The stroller can hold up to 110 pounds, the seats can be removed for washing, and it comes with a rain cover.

Situated at the low end of Maclaren's product line, the Twin Triumph is an affordable luxury for parents seeking both portability and durability. For the money, purchasers get quality and convenience, but not many extras.
