I have owned this stroller for 3 years and it is by far my favorite. Our first stroller was a Graco Quatro Tour, but it was way to bulky. I found this one and was reluctant to purchase it because of the price, but I finally did. I love that it is light weight {compared to the Graco} and that it is compact when folded{folds to about the size of a good umbrella stroller}.

Some of the features I like are that it folds small, has a child tray with cup holder, and that it lays flat. We were able to use the stroller for our second daughter as soon as she was born since it laid flat. It also has a floating 5 point harness system, which essentially means she is strapped in at her shoulders, and waist but she is able to move around more than with a regular harness. The floating system means that the harness stays attached to the stroller at waist level but come detached {if you choose} at the shoulder level allowing the child to lean forward and move around a bit more that in a traditional stroller. Another thing we liked is that the canopy provides excellent coverage. It can go so far forward that if the child seat is sitting up in the upright position you could have the canopy touch the child tray. My older child's favorite part of the stroller is the toddler board on the back that she can stand on. This works great for those moments we are in a large crowd, or for when she is getting tired of walking. This is probably why we use this as our main stroller now that the girls are older as opposed to our double.

For those with infants this stroller has latches for the Peg Perego car seats but if you don't have that car seat there is a universal strap that allows you to secure your infant seat to this stroller. We used it with a Britax Companion and a Graco Snugride and it worked great.

A few of the things I wish could be improved are the basket underneath and the parent cup holder. The basket is big enough to fit my medium size diaper bag and a purse, but not much else. When shopping we hang the packages on the handles of the stroller. The parent cup holder is very small and will only fit a bottle of water or a small drink.

There are accessories that can be purchased at an extra cost. We purchased the matching Navetta{or bassinet} that snaps into the stroller for when our daughter was small {The company now offers this in a package together -- the stroller and bassinet}. In addition we have the rain cover that zips on to the hood and straps down by the front wheels.

I recommended this stroller to all of my friends who are having their first baby. I tell them they can get all of the benefits of a big bulky stroller without the bulk.
