The Bottom Line: I compared to a lot of others, and am very happy with it!
We looked at many "all-terrain" strollers (Mtn Buggy, Phil & Ted, Valco, BOB, etc) and have been pretty happy with the Bumbleride. For the record, we got it in March /09, before the "re-design" came out (ie: our wheels have spokes, not the "3 bars" that new ones have.....I'm sure there are other slight differences too, but that is the most obvious if you are comparing....). I read several other reviews on here, we've never had to remove any fabric when folding it, or had the bar that holds it closed pop open, etc. I suppose the folding mechanism is not as simple as other strollers, but once you have done it a few times, it is straightforward. Has been fine to run with too, I've used it on paved-paths and dirt trails and it has been great. Yes, I have had the cupholder fall off when it is folded up sometimes, but that is a pretty minor inconvenience. Our baby has always been well-secured and comfortable (from what I can tell), the foot-muff and rain-cover are also quite handy. As others have noted, it is great you can recline the backrest so far for infants, but also have them sit right up for when they get bigger. The basket underneath is also very accessible and will easily hold the diaper bag plus coats, etc.
