Cons:small basket, expensive

The Bottom Line: If you can afford this stroller, buy it!!


We have had this stroller for over 3 years now, and I can't write enough good things about it. It has been through heavy use with 2 kids, and it is the only baby thing in our house I will be sad to let go of when the time comes. We researched strollers to the point of becoming obsessed, and this one is the one we finally settled on. I have never been sorry.

Pros:
1. Great for tall parents or tall Dads- handles extend and are very comfortable.
2. Very easy to push one handed.
3. Works great for newborn since it reclines almost all the way down, and seat extends to let little baby legs go out straight. Also great for toddler to sleep in.
4. Also works great for 3 1/2 year old (and still going) Our kids are tall, and my 3 1/2 year old still fits in it comfortably. Some other ones I have seen he hits his head on the top canopy.
5. Canopy is great for actual sun protection, and I would guess rain too, but I have never used it in the rain.
6. Folds easily and compactly. The fold takes a few times to get the hang of it, but after that it is very easy.
7. Carrying handle on side also works great to let preschooler have "special handle" while pushing baby.
8. My kids have never complained about riding, so I assume it is comfortable for them.
9. Easy to push on rough ground or weaving in and out of racks in the mall.
10. Great pockets on back of stroller for keys, drink, wallet, etc.


Cons:
1. Pretty hard to fold and unfold one-handed, although I have done it.
2. Some say a con is that it doesn't have a food tray for kids, but by the time my kids were old enough to eat in stroller, I gave them a snack trap. So that wouldn't be that big a deal to me.
3. Some also say a con is that it doesn't have a drink holder for parent, but I also use a bottle of water, and it fits perfectly in the pocket.
4. High price is con, but I have gotten every penny use out of this stroller, and in the mean time we had a cheaper one which I didn't like at all, and got rid of right away, so it was more a waste of money. I would pay the $250 again without hesitation for the great stroller this has been.
5. The basket is a little small and a little hard to get to, but unless you are shopping and buying A LOT, it hasn't seemed to be a big issue.
6. Doesn't fit an infant car seat, but I used the snap and go stroller (also recommended) during that stage, and bought this when my first baby was about 4 months old.
