If you’re looking for a budget double stroller that’s great for travel (or every day throw-in-the-car use), and has plenty of solid features, check out our Kolcraft Cloud Plus Lightweight Double Stroller review. This stroller is not sexy, but it does hit some high points — all for under $200.
The reason budget strollers are so popular for travel is because if they get damaged during transit or travel, you’re not ruining your nice, high-end stroller…
Kolcraft Cloud Plus Lightweight Double Stroller Review: Size & Weight
The Kolcraft Cloud Plus weighs in at just 23 lbs (lighter than some single strollers!), and can hold kiddos up to 40 lbs per seat (80 lbs combined). No, that’s not a huge weight limit, but this should definitely get you through your toddler years.
This stroller measures 31 inches wide, which should get you through most standard doorways, and it’s Disney-size approved. Yay!
Car Seat Compatibility
None — ha!
The seats on the Cloud Plus Double feature a 5-point safety harness, and are about 12.5 inches wide, which is a fairly generous width. Something to note, however, is that the seats only recline slightly, about 30 degrees from vertical. It’s not going to be the deeper recline you see in some of the nicer travel strollers.
If your babes need a deeper recline to nap comfortably… it may not happen with this stroller. Just ‘sayin.
Canopy, Storage, Brake
The Cloud Plus Double has decent, independently operated three-tier canopies (with mesh peek-a-boo windows for added airflow and to check on those babies). Not the biggest canopies in the world, but not the smallest either.
Also nice is that this stroller has actual usable storage: there are two large-ish storage baskets under the stroller that, depending on its size, will probably fit your diaper bag, as well as some other smaller items such as blankets, sun hats, toys, snacks, diapers and wipes, etc.
The stroller also comes with little mesh pockets in the seats for kiddos to store small snacks, etc., a parent tray which includes two drink holders (mama needs her coffee, people!), and removable child trays with sippy cup and juice box holders.
Yes, these individual child trays (with built-in cupholders) are a real crowd pleaser!
Note that the handlebar is not adjustable for height, which doesn’t make it the best option for tall parents.
This Kolcraft Cloud Plus Double works best on paved, smooth surfaces — like flat sidewalks, theme parks, etc. It won’t serve you very well on any kind of rougher or grassy terrain. But, it does offer front wheel suspension, which makes it an easier push for parents and a nicer, smoother ride for the littles.
Parents really appreciate this stroller’s self-standing fold, which, along with its lightness, make it a great choice for taking on vacations. This stroller is very easy to fold, but it is not a particularly compact fold, like a double umbrella stroller or a tri-fold.
This stroller is very highly rated, given its attainable price, and very popular for travel. Although the build is very basic, it offers some awesome features, such as great storage, good canopies, an easy, self-standing fold, and parent/child trays galore.
The few downsides are the minimal recline, the non-adjustable handlebar, no option to use a car seat, and the basic wheels that really want to be on smooth, paved surfaces.
*Overall, though, it’s a decent travel stroller for a very decent price — and you won’t lose sleep if something happens to it during your trip.
