Folds down easily and much more compact than the Burley
Bike wheels easily clip in and out
Stroller wheels *easily* clip in and out, and store easily on top
Bike hitch is a ball joint so if the bike tips over the trailer won't be affected
Bike bar *easily* slides in and out of position on the trailer, easily attaches to bike hitch, easily stores on unit
Screen is taut when zipped shut, stores 100% out of the way when open
Very sleek design, unit is shorter than Burley and allows for easy visibility of front of unit when strolling
Though the helmet mesh isn't as loose as the Burley there is plenty of room for child to sit comfortably with helmet on
Child was comfortable during ride, seats and buckles are comfortable (though not as cushy as Burley trailer, really didn't seem to make a difference to our child)
Not as much "trunk" space as the Burley
Unit is lower, so we have to bend a little lower to clip child in (not terrible)
Not as robust a trailer as the Burley, but surely still safe
Wind/rain cover and sun shade are separate pieces (not that big of a deal)
Seat doesn't "recline" or fold down flat for hauling gear w/out rider (but inside of trailer is big enough to haul gear anyway, and child still fell asleep comfortably)
Very robust, lots of extra framing
Slightly narrower than Thule trailer (very slightly)
Trailer has a smooth ride, adjustable suspension
Wind/rain cover and sun shade are attached to cover flap (but it makes the flap bulky)
Collapsing and opening trailer is awkward, takes effort to click into open position, doesn't fold as flat as Thule
Cover flap - wind/rain flap only rolls up and is held up by rubber bands (not very well)
Entire front flap does not have any place to easily tuck away when up, just drapes over the back of the trailer
"Recline" option isn't really much of a recline
Stroller wheels - *nearly impossible* to take in and out of trailer, one wheel wouldn't touch the ground for some reason, wheels are smaller than the Thule and just not as nice
Bike trailer bar - *nearly impossible* to take in and out of trailer, hitch is only a swivel so if the bike tipped over it would likely take the trailer with it, latch pins are unnecessarily difficult to put on and take off, I mean really...just awful. I cannot say enough how difficult it was to change out the stroller wheels and bike bar. My husband and I could barely get the pieces in or out. There is no way I would be able to use this trailer on my own.
You end up with bulky, heavy stroller wheels that you have to carry in a bag and store in what is supposed to be extra trunk space and alternatively the bulky, heavy bike bar when the stroller wheels are on
There are so many velcro closures, hooks, loops, straps - not intuitive. Design is way overthought.
The things we thought would put Burley ahead of the Thule really didn't end up mattering and what we thought would be a given, like ease of changing set up, were greatly lacking in the Burley and greatly advanced in the Thule. We were very surprised to choose the Thule over the Burley, but in the end it is just a nicer trailer and stroller. I cannot say enough how easy it is to use all the features of the Thule trailer and the design is very sleek and minimal. The trailer pulls very well with the bike and is just as perfect as a stroller.
*Additional bonus: the infant sling for the Thule is rated for children younger than the Burley infant seat, which will come in handy when #2 arrives!
EDIT: I've seen other reviews mention a couple things that we also considered. One of those being price. When comparing the Thule Chariot to the Burley D'Lite the difference only ends up being about $20. The D'Lite is $689, but we also had to purchase the stroller kit which was another $89 vs the Thule which is only an additional $20 total to end up with the same options. Which brings me to my next point: any additional pieces are *additional* costs with whichever trailer you choose. The jogging attachment is about $10 cheaper for Thule, the infant sling is $20 more for Thule, the ski kit is $100 more for Thule (which is a substantial difference), etc. It all truly depends on how you plan on using your trailer. We found it absolutely worth the additional $20 to have a good quality, easy to use trailer. We plan on having it for a long time and as our kids get bigger it will increase our ability to use the additional functions available; which will also let us spread out the cost of the additional sport conversion kits.
Does Not Come with jogger attachment
So I guess if you're buying a Thule product budget is not your main concern--in which case they hit it out of the park with this one and its close to 5 stars. The only down side to the product itself is that the storage area is limited which is a bummer because if I'm biking I probably want to take more stuff than normal with me. (Its only a small area in the back.) Everything is else is well thought out. The setup is easy and intuitive and could have been completed without instructions. The ball and socket joint makes biking with it easy for the precious cargo and the rider. The bike can lean but the stroller stays upright and stable--it's easy to forget you're pulling the "chariot" sometimes. The ride for the baby is easy going and the suspension is great. The baby straps in easily and securely. The whole setup just screams safety and security.
The real issues I have with it are the included extras: None. Despite it being called a jogger it doesnt come with anything but the bike hitch and the wheels that make it a stroller so its not a jogger without a $100+ add on. I wouldnt really call that multi-sport. Its not just the extra attachments that cost. You need a cup holder--extra. You need extra storage that should have come with it--extra. Breaks--extra. Lock--extra. Had they thrown in a couple of these things to make up for deficiencies, like the storage and the jogger attachment because it really seems like it should be a jogger since its called that!! It would have been a much better value proposition. As it is its a solid lightweight sporty utility stroller. If you have the money you might want to consider the Thule Cross which weighs just a few pounds more and addresses some issues with the Chariot Lite.
