Useless but no other option available for cover

I read the previous reviews about how bad the fit was for this cover and the Navigator, however you have no other choice but to buy as there is no other product on the market to fit this buggy.
The velcro fastenings at the front are not long enough to get a good hold and will part as soon as your toddler lefts their feet or there is a wind.
It also does not correctly fit over the hood and around the brake mechanism at the handle bar, so you can tell is a one to fit all models rather then purposely made for the navigator - which would have been better.
Also, I'm not sure the makers even attempted to go outside and test the cover when the buggy is in double mode. It flaps around the bottom sit hitting the child in the head and drenching them in rain. Useless as a double, although it says it is the double storm cover.
It's a real disappointment, as you have to buy this for the pram and are let down, to the point I choose not to go out in bad weather as spend the whole journey correcting the cover.
As a fix I'm buying the sun hood for the double kit and extra plastic sheeting from hardware store and hoping I can rectify I fix myself. More cost on the top of a costly storm cover.
Disappointing Phil and Ted - you need to look at the Mountain Buggy examples and bring that over to the Phil and Ted range, as they work great.
Not fit for purpose. Felt like a horrible mother!

I'd give this zero stars if I could.
I felt awful with my 19 month old on top, with her feet poking out in a sudden downpour, getting soaked through as it won't stay hooked on at the front, and my poor 5 month old underneath basically getting rain dripped on her head, slapped in the face with the rain cover, and generally in tears. Very stressful.
Not great overall

On the plus side, it's a nice thick material that seems it will stand up to rough conditions. On the minuses: the cover is so bulky I'm unlikely to bring it with me unless it's raining when I leave because it takes up so much storage space. I agree with the PP that the fit isn't great. I also don't have front snaps (maybe the cover is for the Navigator, as I have a Navigator II?) and when the second seat is reclined the cover doesn't fully reach the bottom of that seat. My poor son gets pelted with side rain. I'm considering ways to rig the cover to have it better meet our needs.
Very poor coverage

This cover does not cover the buggy when using two seats. I had to stop using the buggy outdoors due to this. It covers fine with just the one child.
I contacted the support team and they told me to get a seamstress to attached a piece to the end to secure it under the double seat at the back. The buggy/double seat/cover costs too much to have to do this, it should serve it's purpose.

Unless I'm missing something this raincover is useless. It holds at the front with a Velcro strip which my two-year-old kicked off straight away and my poor baby at the back had the cover flapping around in her face because I can't see it attaches to the back seat to hold it in place.
Don't buy this product !

I bought this so my kids would stay dry, but oh...When I use it as a double stroller, my baby at the back just plays with it because you can't even fix it on the stroller. So it rains on her. It doesn't fit on the front either, you just wish that it's not gonna wind too much! My 2 years old (on the front) can easily push on it with her feet, if I try to attach it she will tare it appart. It's not big enough. For the price paid, not worth it at all.

I live in windy Scotland and this rain cover has two snaps on the front but my Phil & Ted Navigator has no where to snap it to. I just have to drape the rain cover over the front and hope the wind doesn't blow the cover up. Seems like there is a fault in the design. I wish the rain cover was as good as the BOB Revolution's rain cover. This is the only flaw I've seen in this stroller. I love it otherwise.
Easy to assemble

Bought this a few weeks ago and fits on my Explorer pram no problem. Love the Velcro traps, but would have preferred the strap at the front to be the fasteners (as per sun cover) to clip onto to pram.
Loving that I know both my cheeky monkeys will be nice and dry when it rains!
Doesnt stay on the front of the pram properly!
