Pros “We went all over town with it on un-shovelled sidewalks and had no issues at all. We didn’t have to stoop over to push it and weren’t kicking the back of it when taking a regular stride. The baskets hold a lot. I can easily lift the stroller off the ground and place it in our minivan with one hand, while holding the baby in the other. It feels very secure and is very solid going over curbs and such. The 5-point harness is awesome as well.”
Cons “It is very stiff to unfold and fold back up again, but it should get easier with each use. And the stroller could have better suspension.”
