not as good as it seems

onSeptember 14, 2009
This is my first stroller, and I thought it'd be good for lots of walking. The front wheel swivels but is more of a hassle because it wobbles all the time and if you're trying to manouver in stores it turns sideways and you get stuck! Plus after 4 months use one of the wheels has busted. The canopy gets in the way when it is folded down and it is very heavy!
I am very disappointed!
Pros: smooth ride for baby
Cons: Not durable

It works, but it's not very user friendly!

onJune 18, 2009
If you're looking for a stroller that rides nicely this is the one! It's got a smooth ride and is very comfortable for the child. But if you want storage and ease of use this system is terrible.
It has the most awkward infant car seat buckling system I have ever seen, and it's heavy and really uncomfortable to carry. It's hard to adjust the straps to fit your child as they have to be adjusted from the back while the child is not in the seat.
The stroller is nice looking and it folds and unfolds easily, but there is NO storage. I can not even put my diaper bag in the tiny little basket on the bottom! You could not get a single bag of groceries in it! There is also no cup and "stuff" holder anywhere on the stroller, which I find annoying. (The description above says there is one but our didn't come with one.) Also the canopy doesn't seal at the back of the stroller so if you put it up then the back flops onto your child.
My parents bought this stroller for us as a gift but if i had bought it I would have returned it after the first use! It's totally not a practical design.

Great choice for out of city use

onMay 29, 2009
We purchaed this stroller for our 1st baby mainly because of its sturdy construction and pneumatic tires. It works great on unpaved roads, it gets through pretty much anything and even snow is not a big obstacle. It is one of the bigger strollers, but we had it on cross-atlantic flights and it was not a problem to handle. The combo with carseat works great, easy to put together. Overall we are satisfied with the purchase.

A great safe stroller combo

onMay 22, 2009
We purchased this set and yes it's bulky but you can see that before you buy it so I don't get the complaint with that regard and I find that although yes the harness can be difficult to clip in - it's very sturdy/stable and the car seat is alot heavier and sturdier than the cheaper ones, feels safer & the base feels more secure.
If you want flimsy go to a discount store and buy one for under $150, if you want quality you pay for - the old addage "you get what you pay for" comes into play here. The rubber tires on the stroller are great, I went for walks in winter and didn't have a problem navigating through snow. The stroller is also great for power walking too helps you get back into shape again...(well almost LOL)

Needs improvement

onMay 14, 2009
I bought this product for my first baby thinking it would be a great buy with both the carseat and the stroller combo. I have issues with both of these items. The car seat is very bulky and the 5 point harness is difficult to use. You have to hold the two straps together in order to snap them in. This can be very difficult if the straps and tight which they should be to ensure your babies safety. The stroller has multiple problems. The adjustable handle broke almost immediately, as well the foot brake became difficult to put on. I sent away for warranty and received a second brand new stroller after these problems. The exact same things went wrong with my second stroller. As well the front wheel stopped locking in place and would only swivel and my canopy broke! I finally received a cheque from visa for this item only days ago only because I had extended warranty for this product. Needless to say I am less than satisfied with this product and recommend looking for another stroller and carseat combo.
