I waited way too long to buy this stroller. Prior to this, we had a Chicco double stroller that we used almost daily for about 2 years....however, I have no idea why we used it that long. I had a very hard time justifying the price if this stroller with our kids getting older (4, 3, 18 months), but with our vacation coming, I decided that I couldn't endure pushing that stroller around Disney all day, so I splurged. At first, my husband was less than thrilled when I told him I ordered a stroller. He said something to the effect of "we don't need that", however, once we got it and set it up, I didn't hear another complaint about it. It's amazing how easily this thing pushes. Seriously, night and day difference in the 2 strollers. It's definitely easier than the Chicco to fold and load into the van. Both sests can recline fully, which means 2 kids can sleep at a time (Vs only the rear seat reclining to sleeping position in the Chicco)!! The canopies on my other stroller never stayed attached to the frame and constantly fell off. Not to mention, they were not very large, which just meant that we had to adjust them all the time to shield the sun. The canopies on this thing......amazing! Huge!!! And secure! The only negative thing I have to say about this is the lack of parent console....it can be bought and added, but baby joggers console isn't great and at this price, it should probably be included anyway. Overall, I'm so happy with my purchase that I bought the baby jogger 4 wheel city mini too.
