My son and I have been using this stroller since he was born, first with the cloud q plus car seat, and I moved him to the luxe seat at 3 months! He is now 2.5 yo and we still use it everyday. We like to go out for walks and it’s perfect for that since it’s super comfortable for him and also for me. It is a little bulky to be carrying it to the car and out, so since I have a lighter stroller also (babyzen yoyo), I use this one for walks and leave the yoyo on my car. I would definitely buy it again. After all this time, it still looks like new.
100% worth it

It is very light and beautiful stroller. It is very comfortable and easy to use, even if you alone with baby. You can easily close and open it. It has 3-4 positions that you can put it with one hand. It's 100% worth the price.

Is this a crazy price to pay for a stroller system? yes. Is it worth it? yes. The Priam is super sleek, functional, and easy to use in many different configurations. We bought this for our newborn, and are especially pleased with the reclining seat. If we take our son anywhere where he'll be in the stroller for a long time, we remove him from the car seat and plop him in the stroller seat (instead of just transferring the car seat to the Priam frame). This way our tiny newborn wasn't scrunched up in his car seat for a long period of time, and could fully recline in a more comfortable position. Popping the seat on the frame, or the attachments for the Cybex car seat, are super smooth and easy. And I love that the stroller seat can face both ways, especially for a new mom worried about germs and keeping an eye on her new baby.When we ordered from Albee, the package came with a weather shield that does a fantastic job of covering the stroller and baby. We unintentionally tested the rain shield during a torential downpour and it worked beautifully. After that experience, I would buy the shield if it didn't come free.The storage compartment underneath *looks* tiny compared to other strollers, but it holds a surprising amount of stuff. And it's sturdy, so it's not like a flimsy netting that would bulge or drag. We stuff our full diaper bag underneath plus my purse, and one time took home three packages from our concierge tucked in there! See accompanying pic.It steers like a dream, turns on a dime with basically two fingers. You can walk around with something in one hand, and easily glide and turn the stroller with the other with complete ease.Bottom line: Extremely well made, quality product that is easy to use for the most part. I feel safe putting my newborn in and love using it.
Three downsides: 1 - You have to bend over to pull a piece of elastic to completely close and lock the stroller for storage, and the elastic is sometimes hard to grab. 2- I find the buttons to release the car seat from the stroller fairly hard to use. My thumbs aren't strong enough to push them and then lift the seat off, so I have to concentrate on pushing and lifting one side of the seat out, and then the other side. But again, I more often than not just transfer him from the car seat to the stroller seat. 3 - Add-ons for extra storage on the handle don't really work on this. I don't mind since I have a slingback diaper bag that I wear or that can easily fit it below. But we did buy a add-on that to hold cups with a pocket of storage that was supposed to velcro around the handles, and the handles on the Priam aren't configured well to hold something like that.
