User Rating: Excellent
Ease of Use:
Pros:Lightweight, compact, adjustable handles, full suspension, ball bearing wheels, full recline, generous hood
Cons:A bit pricey. No food tray/bumper bar (but that's the price of portability)
The Bottom Line: The perfect combination of portability and features. A home run.
We just bought this stroller for our trip to New York and used it there. It has all the features we want in a stroller, including full suspension, recline, light weight, a generous hood that actually covers our son, cupholder, rain cover, and large ball bearing wheels that make it easy to push. I have to say it's just about as good as the Bugaboo Frog we used to have (but sold because it's impossible to carry around with you anywhere but in and out of your Hummer/Range Rover).

Our son slept very comfortably in the stroller with excellent cover, and wheeling his 30 pounds around was a breeze on the Si's large wheels.
The suspension is really well designed, and far better than the simple spring you usually see. The front wheels are on a spring loaded lever (just like the Bugaboo frog) so they really absorb bumps and make the stroller easier to push.
It's really easy to open and close, and doesn't have the "two step" unlock of many competing strollers (like the Silver Cross we used to have).
We purchased the Corallo color, which is a lot less bright in person than it appears on website photos. It's a lovely darkish red and we really like it. Looking back we might have wanted the stripes, but they might stain more easily.
I have to admit it's a bit heavier and bulkier than the ultralights (like the Volo), but the Si really is the perfect compromise: minimal additional weight and bulk in exchange for a host of features.
