I wish there was a better option out there
Very flimsy, an additional cost for your stroller, but really the only option I've found for the double Bob in terms of cup holder. I wish there was a better option out there, but with this being it, it works. I can put a 24 oz bottle of water in the cup holder portion and my phone and keys in the zipper portion (zipper doesn't close with phone in it) and not have any problems. I would love to see a firmer option available.

Great stroller console, but needs some updates
I went round and round reading reviews of a handlebar console and finally decided to get this one based on the fact that it's made to fit the Bob stroller. My opinion is that if you're going to spend that much on a stroller, it should come with both a parent handlebar console and a kid tray, but they know their target consumer will buy the extras if they're not included.
I like that the handlebar console fits my drinks. This was one of the reasons I went back and forth debating which one to get-most of the reviews that I read mentioned that the Nalgene bottle did not fit. I don't have one, so I couldn't compare what that size meant. The Tervis water bottle (24oz with flip lid) will fit perfectly, but the large Tervis tumbler (24oz, tapered at the bottom and then much larger at the top) is too top heavy and will fall out.
In talking with a friend that has this console before I bought it, she mentioned that she didn't like that there wasn't a place to have the phone where she could see it. I ended up rigging a fix for my phone-I took a waterproof travel case for my phone that I already had (one that's meant to keep water/sand out of your phone while at the beach/pool) and attaching it to the zippered pouch (where it says BOB in the picture) with velcro. I just stuck the velcro on one side of the pouch and then hand-sewed the velcro to the top of the pouch. It's now visable, useful, and removable. Hope that helps someone until BOB realizes people use their phones to time runs.

I got this to go on my 2012 Bob's Revolution SE Duallie stroller. I had no problems putting it on and it fits well. I like how deep the cup holders are so I won't have to worry about my cups falling out while going over bumps or while jogging.
The pocket is ok. It fits my iPhone 5s with a case with plenty of room to spare. It would have been nice to have either had another pocket or a bigger pocket with a divider. That way there would be another place for keys and things so you wouldn't have to worry about your phone getting scratched. It works for what I need it to though and I would buy it again.
I attached two pictures:
- one with a water bottle in it
- and one with my phone in the pocket to give you an idea if your phone will fit

Should be included with the stroller.
After paying $700 for a freaking stroller, you'd think BOB would include this..... It's not super awesome, but it works. The cup holder parts seem a little small, so if you like to carry around a giant nalgene bottle, it may not fit. I do like the zippered pouch.

Overpriced crap. It is really annoying that after spending $650 on a stroller (Bob Pro Duallie), I have to shell out even more money for what should already be built into the stroller. This is pretty poor quality too and does not hold very much. I use 32 ounce water bottles that are kind of wide, and this does not accommodate them, which means I have to put my water bottle down below instead of in the cup-holder, which kind of defeats the whole purpose of this. I pretty much use this for my phone or keys. If you find one that works better for the Pro Duallie (with the hand break) please let me know. The one good thing is that it is shallow, so it does not hit knees while jogging (I'm short and put my handle low. I've noticed some of the other ones would probably hit my knees while jogging). I wouldn't recommend this. Poor Quality. Cheap. Doesn't hold 32 ounce Nalgenes.

Storage attachment with NO storage?!
I own a single BOB and a Double BOB. And this console for the double is way too small. Only fits 2, 16oz small plastic water bottles?! Not going to cut it. When I take my kids out in my double BOB, I need enough space to place to store big water bottles and snacks cups and phone and keys, etc. Running for an hour with a 16oz water bottle holder is not enough for me and my 2 small children. And why do you have to purchase these accessories for the BOB in the 1st place? For such an expensive high end stroller costing almost $600 and you have to buy an attatchment for a place to put your water?!? Now you don’t HAVE to buy a bottle holder, there is storage on the bottom of the stroller and 2 netted storage pockets behind each child’s seat. But it’s SUPER inconvenient, I have to comepletly stop my run and put the brake on and use both hands to pull out my water. Not going to be making and PR’s with this method. Ha. Plus unless you bring a sealed water bottle (forget a straw or open top cup)it will spill if placed in the netted pockets behind the seats. Would not recommend, had to return. Wish I would have read reviews first.

Great console for active joggers
I've had a handlebar console in the past that has been just fine. But as I started to do more running, I looked into something that could better accommodate faster and bumpier movements. This fits the bill quite well! It is very easy to secure to the handles of my Bob Revolution Flex (with the adjustable handle, it still fits fine) and I think it would fit other strollers well also. It has nice deep pockets for water bottles. A standard 20 oz bottle fits perfect without any tipping or worry of falling out. The zippered pocket is perfect for keys, wallet, and cell phone. Well worth the price, and good quality. I've even put a hot styrofoam cup of coffee in it and it fit great (didn't jog with that, just while stopped during a walk). Five stars.

The BOB strollers are phenomenal - the best double jogger I’ve ever owned. The BoB accessories, however, are not great. This cup holder uses hook and loop (Velcro) that is supposed to secure in place between the handle bars. The hook and loop is of inferior quality, and does not hold the weight of two cups without coming loose. Because the handlebar angles inward toward the “driver”, the cup holder console slides around awkwardly, never truly secure. With some clever rigging, I was able to secure the console, but it shouldn’t require rigging to begin with.

Nice, but should be included with the strollers.
This is kind of necessary to have when out for walks to hold a water bottle and keys. It really should be included in with the stroller, considering the high price. But it's good quality and works just fine.

Good, not great
Fits 2009 double Bob well. Wish it had a little more storage on it though.
