A dream to push! I have recently bought one for my 4 and 2yo and they fit comfortably and it is so much more compact when folded than my previous double. So so happy with it.
Purchased in July 2020 for A$80.00.
Perhaps we were sent a faulty product(?)
We've purchased the buggy and taken it out the box. The written instructions to set it up are really hard to follow. We went to a video on the mountain buggy website, but our buggy just doesn't unfold like it does in the video. We're using force, and wary of using more force in case it breaks. I've tried contacting them through their online chat - but it keeps saying no-ones online with no indication of when someone will be. Incredibly frustrating!

Great day to day pram
I bought this pram for my twins and have used it from birth. When they were born we used the optional clips to attach two maxi cosi capsules if they were asleep so we wouldn’t have to wake them with transferring. If we went walking from home I also had the older style carrycots which they slept well in. The problem with the carrycots is that they would take up so much space and with the pram being so bulky as it is, there wasn’t much space for much else.
I was really hoping that I’d be able to run with this but it’s really not made for th...at and felt really unstable for that purpose and so wouldn’t recommend it. Being the narrowest side by side double pram it is perfect for being out and about especially going through shops. I have bought a rain cover which is handy when I have to do school pick ups/drop offs with my other child in the rain. The wheels make it easy to push on pretty much all terrain but I have had 2 flat tyres but they were easy enough to change at the bike shop. Going up and down curbs is simple.
Purchased in September 2019.
Great on all terrains
Used from birth with my twins initially with capsules and then in the seats. We took it to England on a family holiday. Had to replace handle as the rubber grip was torn in transit but MB sent out a new replacement for $30 so parts arent pricey. My only issue was the wheels went flat regularly. We splurged on the non puncture tyres eventually but that was at the tail end of using the pram.
Easy to fold up and could do it one handed. It was heavy lifting in and out of boot of car but no more so than others. I loved it.

I love Mountain Buggy!!! A comparison with the Stealcraft strider compact
First we brought the stealcraft strider compact which we were very disappointed with! 8 months later we purchases the Mountain Buggy Duet which I wish we had of just done in the first place.
With the stealcraft my oldest son was underneath and couldn’t see a thing so he wouldn’t sit in it and wanted to be carried, the Mountain Buggy side by side instantly solves this problem.
The stealcraft would get bogged on any gravel or dirt, whereas the Mountain Buggy goes through almost anything
We live in sandy areas and this pram is perfect, it goes u...
Purchased in May 2019 at Baby buntings for A$650.00.
Good pram only for first few months
We bought this pram for our twins. It was really handy when they were very little. Soft seats, smooth ride. But as they grow bigger they struggle to fit in. Mountain buggy being a narrowest pram may be the reason.
It's very heavy to put into the boot.
Eats up all the space in the boot too.
The straps to collapse the seats are very difficult to manage. Can't collapse without waking the baby.
Can't live without this pram!
This pram is a must for any parent especially a multiple mum! It is easy to push on all terrain with good suspension. Even our 3 yr old loves going in the pram still. The basket underneath is actually quite spacious holding a nappy bag and more. Would recommend to anyone!
One of the best decisions I've made to buy this product, great pram, love the basket idea and it may not look like it can but I have had no issues fitting through doors & fits fine into my car. My little girl loves the seat, sits up and can see everything and when sleeping lays flat.
Good but has some problems
The pram pushes brilliantly, fits through most doorways. Love the pram in that sense. Dont like the air filled tyres. Constantly getting punctures. Instructions are useless. Really not easy to understand. Don't like the zips to hold all the seats in place. I find they don't stay done up especially with the 2 year old in it. Hard to lift into the car. The extras are really pricey too, like the mosquito net and rain cover.
Love love love
Love this pram. It’s so easy to push and copes well with uneven terrain. Heaps of storage. If you use it as a single and have the basket on the side you double your storage easily and makes grabbing things out while on the go very convenient. Not to mention mountain buggy have fantastic consumer service when ordering replacement parts or extras for their prams. Two down sides: it’s weight when you lift it to put it in the car and that it doesn’t fold down as compact as some other brands do.
Love the pram but buy the aerotech wheels
I have owned all 3 Models of the duet yep crazy I know not actually intentional our original 2011 model was the absolute beast got a beating from 2 boys 40kms plus a week upgraded it to aerotech no puncture wheels once they were released it had a great 3 years used sold it then surpise baby so brought the next model the 2.5 yep not really a huge fan the fold idea was fantastic but you had to watch for the bar in the middle coming undone and breaking the seat fabric again used aerotech wheels and now we are onto the V3 model I really do like it...the hand break is stupid though but the shorter fold is fantastic but dont get ripped off with mountain buggies stupid buy it as a single scheme and then they won't let you just purchase the seat fabric and hood as we already had the carry cot plus and didnt want the carry cot in the family pack without the plus eg no forward facing seat that they will the rob you for $99 for a scrap of fabric (angry face) oh and the 2.5 and v3 model you can't wash the seat fabrics in the washing machine what on earth were you thinking mountain buggy kids are grot monsters to live life without limit they need food for mummies sanity of silence CHANGE THE SEAT FABRICS BACK! Overall I love the pram and think they need to get back to basics eg washable fabrics and loose the inflatable wheels unless they want to find harder wearing materials to make them from
Easy to manoeuvre, easy to fold. However when foldered it as bulky and a bit awkward,only downside.
Quality is great, very easy to push through grass, gravel and then footpath.
18month old and 3 year old love getting in it. Uv sun cover and rain cover are a "extra" would be great if they were included.
I like the how the seat padding is a "pram liner" makes washing the pram very easy!
I like how the pram can also turn into a single with a basket on the side with a skateboard attachment to. Will be good when 3 wear old decides to walk more
The Best All Rounder
My favourite thing about this pram is how incredibly easy it is to push. It doesn't matter whether you're on grass, dirt or on the path it is SO easy to maneuver. I have a 2 and a half year and 8 month old and going up and down curbs is effortless in this pram. It can also fit through a single doorway - winning! People are always surprised when they see how easily it can go through tight spaces. I have the gray seatcovers and features which looks beautiful.I definitely recommend this pram.
I took off a star for two reasons: firstly, it is q...uite difficult to lift in and out of the car because it is an awkward size. Secondly, it doesn't come with proper instructions. It comes with a useless picture booklet and if you want proper instructions you need to go to their website...not completely convenient when you are in the midst of constructing a double pram. But aside from those two things, it's a wonderful pram. For me the pros outweigh the cons.
I love this pram! It is a little heavy but i guess most double prams would be. I can fit through standard door frams with no issues. My nearly 4 year old still sits in it. Steering is great and i take this for my walk every 2 days to the park and supermarket. Very easy to fold too.
Slim side by side pram
We bought this pram due to the fact that it was one of the slimmest side by side prisms on the market, and also one with the most features we liked. Both seats are able to lie completely flat which was great with a newborn and young toddler. The removable belly bar, the adjustable handle, the foot rest and individual sun shades are all features we love. The basket is difficult to access when the seats are lying down unfortunately and I wish there was a pram caddy to fit across the handles.
Great pram! Currently using it for both my 2 and 4 yr old.Its easy to maneuver,easy to put into boot,has a good sized basket,great that the handles can be adjusted,adjustable seats are very handy for sleepy babies and also great for hikes or long walks. I Highly recommend this product!
Excellent double pram
This is a great pram. It's the same width as my single MB Urban Jungle which is amazing considering it's a double pram. It's very versatile in that you can have two 'regular' seats, two carrycots or one of each together or use it as a single pram with the joey tote. That's why i bought it because my nearly theee yr old won't be in a pram for much longer but when he grows out of it (maximum weight is 18 kg so the average 4 year old) I can still use it for my younger child and use the joey tote to put the shopping in when we go down town. It's ve...ry easy to steer and push and maneover around both in shops and over bumpy terrain at the park or where there are no footpaths. The extendable handle is fantastic for me because I'm tall and get sore back and shoulders from pushing prams with shorter handles. I got this pram as a single with a joey tote with a FREE family pack (second seat and a lay flat carry cot) for $700 so it's great value for money and my toddler and baby are both very comfortable in it and live going for our walks in it. My toddler is 103 cm tall & he fits in it well, both in terms of height & width of seat & the straps fit him well (I notice some have said they are too short). He is 17.5 kg and my baby is about 6 kg. You just have to lock the front wheels and it's easier to steer when on a slope or bumpy terrain (I notice his side does feel much heavier). This pram is the double pram recommended by Choice and for me it has lived up to my expectations.
Best pram i’ve Had
Bought this pram when I had my second child. What a great investment. Looks big but it fits through all doors and shopping aisles. Very easy to manoeuvre even one handed which was very handy when it came time for shopping. Build quality is excellent and it’s easy to fold, takes a bit of getting used to lifting it by myself but it’s doable. Bought the bassinet attachment which was great whilst my little one was in it. Very happy with it and would definitely recommend
Great pram..aslong as you have boot space
I have a Mountain Buggy Duet Pram. I purchased it from a friend who's twins no longer needed it. I have two kids 15 months apart.I am a small framed person so a light pram was important (15kg). A light pram is important as eventually those two little babies grow and you're pushing close to 50kg ( pram,two growing kids,nappy bag groceries etc) This pram is very easy to manoeuvre and fits through a standard door way!!. Parts are easy to replace through the Mountain Buggy website although over priced. I replaced the handle, being 2nd hand it was ...a little torn. Recently I had a flat tyre whilst on holidays!! luckily I was able to buy the tube from Baby Bunting for $12.95 . Valco tyre tubes are universal with a bent valve (as long as you know the correct size). The pram is easy to wash down, good size under basket. The only downfall is adequate boot space for this pram. I have a Subaru Forrester, it fits easily but not much room for anything else unless you stand it up and use a harness to secure it (we do this when going on holidays) .The Duet is easy to collapse. I recommend this pram as its sturdy, comfortable for the kids and well made.
The best double ever!!
So there's no perfect pram, but this is certainly the best double. I did SO much research. Girls in my mothers' group had doubles (we walked a lot!) so I tried quite a few - Bugaboo, City Select, iCandy... but whilst some of the others were prettier, this was streets ahead in terms of how easy it is to push / steer / go up & down curves - and with 2 kids (mine are now 18mths & just 4), you want it to be light and easy to push!!
It's also the narrowest - though I still can't work that out as it looks huge, but sure enough, it is the narrowest....
Questions & Answers
Hello! I would like to replace the sun hoods and hammocks on a Mountain Buggy Duo - does any one know if the Duet 2.5 sunhoods and hammocks fit? Thank you :)
Hi I am wanting to purchase a Mountain Buggy Duet. I have been given an older Mountain Buggy Duo which is a great pram but its just so big and heavy to get in and out of the car and our dog which is a large dog (Golden Retriever) has to squish in the side of the boot and lay on the pram to fit in the car which is not ideal because 95% the time when we are going for a walk we are taking him plus his hair gets all over the pram as well when he is laying on it. I was wondering has anyone with a Toyota Prado purchased the Duet and how does it fit in the boot? How much space in the boot would you say you have around the pram? Thanks
Is the depth of the seat adjustable? My nearly two year old seems to slide down as there is no depth in the seat?
