As a jogging stroller itself, the InStep Arrow Fixed Wheel Double Jogger is great. But because of its fixed wheel design, it makes it a less than ideal stroller for everyday use. It is harder to maneuver through crowded places and sharp turns.
This is however not really a negative, because fixed front wheel jogging strollers like the InStep Arrow and designed for running where they perform better that swivel wheel strollers at tracking, and keeping to straight lines
Some parents also observed that the canopy does not extend far enough as they would like to give fuller cover for kids on sunny days.
