Been using this Jane Powertwin stroller approx 3 years now. Really fantastic. Kids are 5 and 3 years old now. The 5 year old insists sitting in the front while the 3 year old is very happy in the back. We use it for e.g. Disneyland, and bringing the kids to school (20 minutes walk). It's never let us down. Very easy to manoeuvre, easy to push, stable (although the single front wheel sometimes can be tricky). We've used it on most of our holidays, even walking in the Swiss Alps on rough... (read more)

I bought a second hand Jane Powertwin tandem for my children who are 15 months apart and I have to say I loved it! I kept it until the youngest was 2 and it served me very well. It was so light and manouverable and even with a couple of fairly heavy toddlers on board it was still quite easy to push.
I'd love to give it five stars but it did have a few niggly points that others have mentioned. Things to bear in mind if you're purchasing are:
- It's quite big when collapsed - if you've got a... (read more)

Absolutley love the Jane powertwin pro for my 2 year old and 8 week old children. It is quite lightweight for a double and easy to fold. A pleasure to push with the adjustable suspension and both children are very comfortable. A great looking pram (mines marine) and I've had many compliments from friends. I often use on buses without any trouble and easy to manouvre round shops. Living in a very hilly area means the front brake is fantastic for keeping the pram under control when going... (read more)

Got a 22 month old and a 3 week old. The powertwin pram is really easy to push and soo smooth, being a very tired single mum, you really notice this.
Lots of slopes in my area so no problems going up lots of curbs, but the ones i do, are no trouble. If you go up high curbs, then make sure you have the front wheel locked!!! I have a large step up to my front door...common sense tells you to lock the front wheel otherwise it will tip! der!
My 22 month old is pretty tall and his feet dangle... (read more)

i love my jane powertwin pro with strata car seats. i could not live without it. it is so easy to steer. nothing is out of bounds. i was so worried when i found out i was having twins that i would be quite restricted. not with my pram it isn't! i can get it on the low rise buses, in and around shops its even been on the beach. it can be a bit tricky to get up curbs but nothing i cant deal with! its easy to get in and out of the car and its only as heavy as any other buggy. i also walk for...

I absalutley love my Jane Powertwin Pram pro with strata car seats, Ive had no issues whatsoever.
I found that the powertwin is very sturdy and comfortable for my 3months and 1 year old. I was given a side by side pushchair for my 2 children and I absalutley hated it! Try getting through a door way with one of them! However with my powertwin its compact enough for me to get through door ways and I no longer need help!!
The Strata is also so handy as it has the iso-fix base!

i love the powertwin as it is so easy to push it just glides along cause of the bearing run wheels ,i love the way i can have one in the rear and one at the front in the strata this way the heavier childs weight over the rear axle makes for easier control,and that my son does nt feel left out as he can interact with his new sister who is facing him and myself. i have had other buggies but this stands well above the rest (read more)

This Jane Powertwin Pram pushchair is very easy to push round the shops, my twins are 4 weeks old and the Strata car seats make the puschair very adaptable.
I live on top of a hill so the hand brake comes in very handy!!
My mother gave me a side by side lightweight stroller for when shopping however I prefer to use the powertwin as access to shops is far easier than a side by side!!
Very easy to steer, fits in my car and my childrem are comfortable! (read more)

The Jane Powertwin Pram is a fantastic alround twin puschair. I have 3 year old and 9 month old and goes everywhere with us. Three year old in the front seat while 9 month old in the rear using the strata car seat. Having the large wheels makes it a dream to push, nothing gets in its way and having the front swivel wheel makes it so easy to manoeuvre. The front seat reclines to allow our older son to snooze when required but likes to look around most of the time. (read more)

dont like this Jane Powertwin Pram at all!! I have an Adventure Buggy side by side twin with a triplet seat on top which is great, easy to push but cannot get on the bus. Was given this one and yes it is easy to put the kids in and get out the door quickly as opposed to setting the ABC pushchair up outside and then putting the kids in (not good when it is raining) but the bad points out weight the good ones. I have two 22 month olds, in a straight line no bother steer a nightmare,... (read more)

Jane Powertrim Pram is hard to open and close. My 2 year old sons feet got pinched in the front wheel. The front wheel locks all the time so you can not turn. BIG waste of money. I wish I had not bot it. (read more)

Its a tandem and I can get it through single door ways and really great when pushing down the street. Ever tried to push a side by side down and street - very difficult. I can accept 1 or 2 infant cars seats to make a travel system - easy clip on and off and easy to put in the car.
I love it, and to be honest, because I use it with one car seat I still can't see anything thats better then the Powertwin. I know friends that don't like pushing tandems or twins buggys in general - but its... (read more)

I find the Jane Powertwin Pram hard to steer. Tends to veer off to one side. Tips easily when going up curbs. The front break sometimes gets stuck on. Very heavy for me to lift in and out of the car. Front wheel and plate are a fiddle to set. Tyres regularly go flat on my pram. My sons feet can touch the front wheel if he nods off and they dangle! Handles are not height adjustable so it is too low for my husband. (read more)

Good looking in photographs. Easy travel system device except the car seat should have a base you can leave in the car as it is a bit of a battle to secure each time. Each child has a view of the world. Nice and narrow. Where do I start?! this pram is a monster - its enormous! the shopping basket is inaccessible. Hard to push (tends to veer). Mounting a curb is only possible if you face it head on if you try to turn and mount it will topple. It is extremely heavy. When my son (2 years old)... (read more)

I bought this when my youngest was a couple of months old. There is fifteen months between him and his sister - he has now just turned 1 and she is 2. Neither are above average size or weight for their ages and I should still have about a year's use before my little girl is too heavy for the pushchair. The problem is obviously only going to get worse as they both get heavier. On the very short school run that I do, the pavements are, in many places, not completely flat. I'm physically...

The Jane Powertwin pushchair is a total utter waste of money. There should be somewhere mothers can go to test drive pushchairs, not just push them about in a shop for 5 minutes. The first time I tried to get up a rather large kerb, the pushchair tipped over, and the babies were only 6 months old at the time. It is also hard to manoeuvre around obstacles!! (read more)

The problems with the Jane Powertwin were that my 12 month old's feet were already touching the foot board in the front seat, so the front seat would only last a matter of months before his feet would be dangling dangerously around the front wheel. He is also going through the arching back phase when trying to strap him in the pushchair, and in the Powertwin he really didn't sit that well. The front seat also doesn't really recline enough for me to be happy for my son to sleep in it. The... (read more)

The Jane Powertwin pushchair is not worth the money it costs. Bad balance, and the swivel option is a washout. Customer service is also bad. (read more)

I have used several different double strollers and this is by far the best one. I live in a small town and there are no indoor malls so when going from store to store, through door after door, having a small stroller is the only way to go. The other front-back strollers are so difficult to steer (and long) and the side-by-sides are too wide to get through most doors. It is not large and that is the point of it. You can not load it up with shopping bags but if I am picking up a few items... (read more)

Overall, I love this push chair. It is the only one that would fit in our car (Vauxhall Astra 2005). It will virtually fit in any hatchback. This push chair is easier to push and steer than any other push chairs I have had and I have had many in the past - including twin push chairs. (read more)

Overall, the Jane Powertwin may be a pushchair to consider for twins, as they will both be in the car seats together, and then transfer into the big seats at the same time, which would mean you would not have the problem with the toddler not been able to recline. The pram bag however is far too small for twins, and at around £40.00, buying two of these would prove very costly. I now wish I had gone for the Phil and Ted Explorer, as it is cheaper and more comfortable for both children! (read more)
