Good, but room for improvement
October 14, 2014
Overall I've found this to be a very good stroller - it's certainly not a ligtht "umbrella" stroller, and neither is it a full-size jogging stroller, but it fits in between at a happy medium. I definitely appreciate the way it folds up with one button, and the quality and comfort have been great so far. The fact that it goes from a more upright position (which is pretty laid-back, but seems good for my infant) to an almost completely flat position has been very useful when trying to get a nap in while out of the house. Another feature I appreciate is the fact that there is no axle between the rear two wheels - as a tall person with a long stride, it's nice not to have to worry about shortening my step or clunking in to the rear of the stroller, as some other similar strollers. My complaints are relatively few, but here they are; first, I wish there were an inflated wheel option. Sure it might add some weight, but I think it would be nice to have for the extra shock absorbtion and smoother ride especially over gravel or dirt trails. Second, it really bothers me that this does not have a one-handed opening mechanism. If you've got your kid in one hand, it's very hard to get this thing open. A simple button like they have on the release would solve this problem, or even a bit of a nub on the release so that it could be pressed in with the foot would help. Maybe there's some "safety concern" that prevents either of these options, but I can't understand it.
