We hesitated SO HARD before buying this... it's expensive and it's hard to test drive without actual kids! We got it for our first, planning on having it for our eventual second. Now, pregnant with #2, I'm even more in love with this stroller. I loved it as a single--it wasn't needlessly long or unweildy, and I loved turning my little one rear-facing. I kept it in the trunk of my car, and it IS challenging to get out and assembled rear-facing one-handed... and impossible to put back in. But so, so, so worth the price. It's stood up beautifully to use and abuse, some off-roading on nature trails, the whole thing. And now my oldest is ready to get in and out and in and out and be in front, where we'll move his seat, and we get to put the baby right up close to mommy, looking right at me again. Love it <3
Lack of basic accessories really does stink, no lie. I keep (forgetting to keep) my eyes peeled for massive sales on them, because I spent enough on this puppy without more for a parent console or child snack tray. So far, I still have neither, but I don't miss them that much either.
