Our Top Three Picks for tall people:
(1) UppaBaby Vista
(2) Bugaboo Chameleon
(3) Peg Perego Skate
All 3 have handles long enough for a 6'6'' guy. But, the Uppababy handles actually were about an inch or so higher all the way across and it had a curved bar at the bottom so your feet wouldn't kick it as you pushed. The other two had straight bars on the bottom that were very easy to kick.
Of the three brands, Uppababy was the only one that had solid all terrain tires instead of air filled.
The Uppababy had a separate bassinet, whereas the other two you convert the bassinet into the toddler seat.
The Chameleon and the Uppababy were quite easy to fold down. I felt the Chameleon was a little lighter for lifting from ground to trunk. The Skate was not too hard to fold, but there were several buttons so it took more steps than either of the other two.
I would have been happy with any of the three brands and think for tall people, any one of them would work. But ultimately, my husband just loved the extra handle space and the curved bar at the bottom on the Uppa enough to make that one by far his favorite and at 6'6'' - every extra inch on that handle bar is valuable!
Other Contenders for tall people:
(4) Quinny Buzz
I loved the buzz and it might have been my top choice if I had not been shopping with my husband. I loved the great maneuverability, the lightness of the frame, the texture of the fabric and the colors. The downsides - the handle was not as long as the three above, but it was long and I believe it would work for someone 6'4'' or shorter. It didn't have as nice a basket as the others.Read more ›
I got the Peg Perego car seat adapter and it is very strong and secure. I feel very safe with my son in it. I stop at a store, unfold the stroller frame, snap the car seat in, and off I go! The under basket is very roomy. Huge, actually, and you can access it from the front as well as from the back.
I also have the piggyback attachment, which my now just 3 year old daughter loves and we use mostly in the mall. It is somewhat difficult to attach and sometimes detaches when the ground is uneven and no one is riding on it, i.e. there is no weight from the child holding it down. The stroller can be folded with the piggyback in position, but there is a trick it which you will just have to figure out on your own, because I just can't explain it. The piggy back is not enough for long mall excursions, however. My daughter gets tired of standing and holding on. She has, on occasion, been seen sitting in the underbasket.Read more ›
I had my second child a year later, so the stroller wasn't put to use again until we purchased the rumble seat. By then, my daughters were 6 months and 18 months old. The third time we took both babies out, the two joints that essentially hold the stroller together and upright broke, and the stroller collapsed, in a crosswalk, with both babies inside. Needless to say it was a nightmare. The new frame wasn't even six months old, and had only been used twice before when its faulty design proved it to be an unsafe piece of equipment.
Horrified, we tossed the scraps in the basement and fumed about it as we purchased a second STURDIER stroller (Maclaren). Emails to the Uppa Baby Customer Service department have been in vain. While they apologized for what occurred, they did nothing more than offer us a new frame at cost, WITHOUT WARRANTY. So, after accessories and the cost of the stroller itself, a thousand dollars down the drain.
