User Rating: Excellent
Ease of Use:
Pros:Great steering, lightweight, portable, folds-up compactly, great color!
Cons:Harness can be hard to open, somewhat pricey.
The Bottom Line: It is truly worth the extra money. The steering is so easy and the fact that it sits up higher makes it better on your back.
I have never ever considered spending a lot of money on a stroller but I have to say, the Maclaren Volo was worth EVERY single penny we spent on it.

I started researching strollers after we decided that the Graco that came with our car seat was just too darn bulky. It would take up so much trunk space plus our daughter (who is two) was just getting restless every time she was in it. You could tell that she felt that she was "older" and needed something different.
I'm also 5' 8" and was sick and tired of "bending down" a bit to push the stroller. Especially umbrella strollers. A friend of mine had recently bought a Maclaren and recommended that I look into them because they sit up a bit higher for pushing ease. I am SO glad that I took that advice.
I bought this one because the price was right (we live on a very tight budget) and I really liked the color. It was easy to put together and very lightweight, so the portability has been perfect. It fits in our truck, taking up very little space and it comes with a handy "carrying handle" that's attached to the stroller so that our hands are free to hold our daughter and carry the stroller at the same time. It steers like a dream - I usually steer it one-handed and the five point harness holds her in because she is an escape artist.
My only complaint is that the harness is sometimes hard to open so we have to really use force, but it's probably a benefit because a kid is unable to do it.
