An active parent's dream travel system
May 4, 2021
The BOB Gear Revolution Flex 3.0 Travel System is extremely user friendly and the perfect system for your off-road family nature walk or morning jog. Out of the box, the BOB stroller and Britax car seat attachments and system were super easy to assemble, taking less than 15 minutes. The stroller itself is very impressive! The suspension system is top notch, making bumps seem unnoticeable by my little one. Steering the stroller was so smooth both with the front wheel unlocked during walks and locked while jogging. For sunny days, an UPF 50 UV sun blocking canopy is a must. This one definitely stood out in that the canopy is large with great coverage, and I LOVE the fact I can lift up various flaps to easily see my little one or to let in air flow without letting in the sun. Another major plus for this stroller is the abundant amount of storage available in the basket, on the back of the seat, and in the seat. Collapsing the stroller must be done in two steps/ sections which makes it a bit difficult, but my main complaint is the weight. The BOB stroller is on the heavier and clunkier side. Collapsed, the BOB stroller fits perfectly in the back of my large SUV with the front wheel still attached; however, it barely fit in the empty trunk of my Nissan Altima even with the front wheel removed.
The included Britax car seat works perfectly with the BOB stroller and is a great alternative to the traditional bassinet attachment. Overall, the car seat regarding being used as a stroller attachment was great and seemed to very much compliment the BOB stroller in that the attachment is very sturdy and secure. The car seat material was easy to remove and wash, is soft, comfortable, and breathable so my little one seemed to enjoy sitting in it. Car seat installation both in the stroller and setting up the base in the car were straight forward and quick, making the seat easily transferrable in and out of the stroller and between vehicles if needed. There were quite a few negatives for the car seat though including the fact that the car seat was very noisy sounding like Styrofoam rubbing together when putting my baby in the seat and carrying her (basically whenever the seat was moved). Additionally, the seat is quite bulky, awkward to carry, and heavy compared to others on the market. The Britax car seat works great as a seat alternative for the BOB stroller, and I will continue to use it in conjunction with the stroller until my little one gets a bit bigger; however, I would not trade in my current car seat for this one when it comes to traveling in the car.
In conclusion, if you love nature walks, jogging, or even just walking in your neighborhood, this travel system is a must have. The overall design is very user friendly, has smooth maneuverability, great storage, a sturdy build, excellent protection for baby, comfortable for you little one, and has great storage. Definitely a travel system built to last for several years and one that I will continue to use with my little one now and in the future. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this amazing travel system to test and review.
