Great for my 4yo and 1 yo
June 21, 2012
I have to admit, for 4 years I have had major stroller envy every time I saw this one stroll by. My husband bought it for me as a "Tuesday Gift" (major brownie points there) about 3 months ago. I use it a few times a week for day-to-day travel and my husband and I usually jog 4 or 5 miles together on the weekends. Since my almost-5-year-old is very petite, she can still sit in the back seat so she and I can talk while we're walking and my almost-1-year-old often falls asleep, so it's easy to take off the back seat and let her recline with big sis on the front. While the brake is a little difficult to brake and "un-brake", it's for good cause! It is a sturdy brake. To move things around on the stroller (like the doubles seat or the handle bar for example) you have to push very tiny metal buttons very hard (but, again, this is for good reason), which is difficult for soft fingers (not the case for my man), but that is so that these things don't come out easily while walking or jogging. Some "spectators" of the stroller often point out that the child in the back does not have a "view", but it doesn't bother them just as their rear-facing car seat ever bothered them. They actually fight over the back seat because they get tickled and talked to! Overall, all my years of envy and research to find the perfect stroller for my girls has proved worth while as this stroller works perfectly for our family!
Pros:Inline with double capabilities, sturdy jogger, excellent sun-shade coverage (or blockage), sturdy brakes, comfortable seats (so I've been told), padded buckle straps, inflatable tires, two-level handle bar (we're 12" height difference)
Cons:No place for parents' things (but that can be remedied with add-ons)
Back seat doesn't recline
