Great quality, but caution that it’s rather heavy.
I just went to look at this stroller today and just had to put in my 2 cents. Overall, this stroller is very solid and maneuvers like a charm. It can comfortably fit two babies, or two toddlers. The material is awesome!However, if you are a mom of a single child now and ‘plan’ to extend your family, you might want to consider something LIGHTER for the mean time. Perhaps, the City Mini. This stroller is pretty darn heavy to lift with one seat. It’s smaller than many tandem or double strollers but still somewhat bulky. I don’t like that it can stand after it folds either. So, for myself, I will have number 2 one day and I thought about eliminating the hassle of buying and then selling a single stroller. But, after seeing this in person, or lifting it…I’ll definitely consider this when I have two kids. In the mean time, I’ll stick to the much lighter single strollers and deal with the hassle of having to sell it later.Then, I got to thinking…is the City Mini Double that bad? Will it not fit through most doorways? It’s so much lighter and toteable…you can actually travel with it, I feel like. And it’s cheaper without having to buy that extra seat.
Do not buy this in Diamond color
First of all, the color Diamond should not be sold to any parent. It shows dirt too easily. I’ve had this stroller for about 8 months now, and I think it’s been through normal wear and tear, I don’t use it every day, really probably less than normal, and it looks horrible now. Even though this is a nice, expensive stroller, you wouldn’t think so because of the dirt on the canopy. I’ve tried to wash it by hand, you can’t put the canopy in the washing machine, according to Baby Jogger. but it definitely does not get off all the dirt this way. I did not realize this when we purchased the stroller, that the parts cannot be machine-washed. Who wants to hand wash, anyway?This is a great stroller for what it is, though, as a possible double stroller. It has a lot of basket room, which I didn’t think I’d need initially, but comes in handy so often. I’ve only used it as a single stoller, though. It maneuvers well, and is able to handle somewhat gravel paths, sand and snow. It folds close nicely, which was important to us, since we noticed with cheaper strollers this became an issue after a while. This seems like it will last for multiple children no problem. Very sturdy stroller. It folds up compactly if you take off the wheels, that is nice for when we travel to Europe, where people drive smaller cars generally.I just don’t understand why Baby Jogger sells this color. As a first-timer, I didn’t think about things like dirt showing on the stroller. I thought also since it is a light-gray, it wouldn’t be so bad, but it is. Baby Jogger would not exchange my seat for a different color when asked. It’s very disappointing, because when you purchase all of the extras, like the bassinet and the car seat adaptor, etc., this stroller is expensive. You still have this stroller that looks terrible because of the color. I wrote Baby Jogger and told them that they should not sell this color, they did not address this issue. Even though I think the product is worth the money, in this color it is not.A note: you need to get the Gate Check bag if you plan on flying. We did not, and on the way back from a flight, our stroller was dropped. The airline stated they normally don’t reimburse for strollers, but they were really negligent this time, and we are getting a reimbursement. The front wheels broke, but luckily we were able to order new ones for not too much money. At least it was for on the way back from a vacation. Imagine a vacation without a stroller. Just buy the Gate Check bag.I would have given a much higher rating if it were not for the color!
I needed a stroller that would hold my Chicco Keyfit 30 infant seat as well as contain my 2.5 year old son. We tried the Chicco together, the Kolcraft Contours, the Sit n Stand, and the Joovy ultralight. (Whew, that’s a lot of strollers!) We ended up spending a lot more money to get this stroller, but it was SO worth it. It’s wonderfully made, great quality. I love that you can rearrange the seats several ways, and that it still doesn’t seem huge with an infant seat and a toddler in it. I read reviews that said the seats are too small for a toddler, but I haven’t had that problem. I also read reviews saying the Chicco infant seat doesn’t click into the adapter (sold separately) but it in fact does. I couldn’t be happier with this stroller. It’s not as heavy as the Chicco, or the Kolcraft. Not too tall for me like several strollers I tried (I’m 5′ 1″), and still does everything I need it to. Even my skeptical husband was very impressed with this stroller. I have to say the price tag was a bit hard to swallow once I had purchased everything I needed (the extra seat kit and the Chicco adapter), but I don’t think I’ll regret this purchase.
