I just bought this jogger and went out for my first time today!! I couldn't be happier for the price. I did check out other joggers that were more higher end in price, such as the BOB and Baby Jogger. I was willing to pay more - I just wanted one that for sure met my needs - I chose this one because:
#1 I wanted a 3-wheel jogger that swiveled and handled rough terrain. Roomy enough for my 3 year toddler - who still goes with me to exercise in the morning.
#2 Lots of pockets and compartments on jogger. I love the basket underneath. It has a divider in it - so it gives a front & back basket. And very large to fit blankets and diaper bag, or jackets etc. . . The front basket is under the footrest for easy access to a jacket or Sippy cup - anything that I don't want to dig in the back for.
# 3 The footrest comes way out - so my son's feet are not dangling off , and cover's the wheel so well that his feet are safe from getting caught in it or anything etc. ..
#4 The seat is wide & tall for a bigger child, and it has a 5-point harness; or you can just use the 3 point one too. The seat lowers way back for a comfortable nap - with a peek-a-boo window in the canopy part.
#5 One downfall - the canopy is attached to the top back of seat. So if you wanted to pull the shade down lower in front you cant because it's attached - I will have to rig something up - maybe clothes pin a burp cloth or something to cover him on sunny days etc. . .
#6 I love the parent tray - the cup holders (2) are deep enough that my water bottle stays in, even when I am bumping along on & off curbs etc. . . It has iPod speakers for your baby to listen too - they're ok - good enough for baby. I still like my own music to exercise too - so I still used my own iPod. It can snap on & off of jogger if you need to take it off to clean.
# 7 It has side compartments on both sides of seat - big enough to hold a wallet, phone, keys etc. . . they Velcro shut. They can be taken off as well - if you need to throw them in the wash.
# 8 The baby tray has 2-cup holders too - deep enough that I put a Capri sun in them and it stood up well over the terrain. It has a play car steering wheel & horn that can snap on to play with - BIG HIT!! Not only with my son - but when I went to the park - the other kids ran over and played with it too. You can take the entire tray off too for easy clean - and or if you child is sleeping and you need to take them out carefully. I believe it accommodates most infant car seat as well.
#9 I put this stroller together myself - instead of my husband. It was soooo easy - I couldn't believe how easy it was. I read the review above and sounds like she was missing some assembly parts. My paperwork told me that I needed 6 washers and I only had 3 - but was only asked to use 2 - sooo not a big deal to me + we have washers in our tool box that I could have used if needed.
Over all - for what I paid - and I would have paid more, I love this jogger. I would recommend it to anyone. Many parents came and checked it out when I was at the park. I love that Amazon gives great deals + free shipping.
