    This stroller may seem a bit pricey..but you get what you pay for! The swivel front wheel is great…very easy to fold up and put into trunk. Suspension system is like no other…My husband always wants to push it when we go out (not so “motherly” looking)…very smooth ride for children. Best investment we have made since our child has been born. Have not been able to jog with it yet because we are still using the car seat adaptor.

  2. Kari on July 16th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I would pay double for this stroller! This is the BEST stroller out there. It can go through snow, sand, on trails and is very comfortable for the little one. It is big, but easy to maneuver with the front swivel wheel. I would HIGHLY recommend this stroller to anyone. All of my friends own it.

  3. olson mom on August 2nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    My husband was a little skeptical w/ the price but pushing the stroller around all day at the zoo was a breeze. It’s almost like the stroller walks itself. I love it!! I cant wait for our second child so I can use the car seat adapter.

  4. Cainin's mom on August 18th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller goes anywhere you want. We take it on hiking trails, in the store, jogging,in town, and anywhere your imagination goes. There are no limits with this stroller. Great ground clearance! Although I wish it had an adapter for a bike, but you can’t have everything! This is the only stroller I have, it adapts to certain car seats which is a plus. The car seat adapter does not let the stroller fold down as compact as it should. Though as soon as your baby has good head control this is not a problem. The adapter is easily removed. This stroller has a great padded five point harness. Many accessories to buy for the stroller. If you are tall this is the stroller for you. This stroller is so easy to manuever, I can hold a dog by the collar and steer the stroller at the same time with ease. Can’t say enough, you will have to try it for yourself. 🙂

  5. Walker / jogger on August 22nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is one of the only major baby products that I have purchased that I don’t have buyer’s remorse. The stroller is perfect for both running and walking. My daughter is comfortable and happy when we go out for rides. Where I am the sidewalks are very bumpy and the stroller handles them well. It steers with one hand and the sun canopy is excellent, bigger than most other strollers. Also, I was recently caught out in the rain and my daughter stayed dry under the canopy where the water beads off. Folds well too for long trips since the wheels pop off. A little bulky to pack up for trips to the mall but definitely worth taking if you will be out walking.

  6. JB on October 26th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    very easy to use, very smooth ride. I bought the infant attachment and have used it since the day I brought my son home from the hospital. while it’s big, I have had no problem transporting it in my car. Lots of space to store things. I would also recommend buying the handlebar console and weather sheild.

  7. Cali First Time Mom on October 31st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is absolutely the best stroller available in the market. It is easy to use, has an infant adaptor, manuevers easily and works for both me and my husband. It is worth the price and is the best registry gift we received! We have people asking us about it when we take our baby for a ride.

  8. ces on December 10th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Best stroller/jogger available! It is easy to use, and with the infant/car seat adapter, it is the only stroller we’re using. Excellent product!

  9. Katie (New mom) on December 30th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is incredible. It is great for moms on the go. I use it all the time for walks, shopping, and simply going everywhere. I was worried because of how big it was that I wouldn’t have space in my trunk…but I was wrong. It folds up very well for a jogger. It doesn’t take up much space in my trunk at all. Great stroller!…a must have.

  10. Micah's Mommy on February 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Okay this stroller is way expensive. It took me months of saving to be able to afford. Bottom line? I’d buy it again if I had the choice.

    I can hold my 17 pound son and still steer this one handed without even trying. It navigates corners like nothing else. It literally turns on a dime. I can stand still and just rotate it in a perfect circle. My son LOVES riding in it. He can fall asleep easily in it. The sun shade comes low enough to protect him from the bright sun. It’s such a smooth stroller. I can’t say enough good things about it. It was super easy to put together when it arrived (I did it by myself while my husband was at work.) I use this stroller for walks around the neighborhood, mall shopping (easily navigates through aisles), walks at the beach, excursions like the Wild Animal Park.

    Here’s the only dose of reality (they’re not even complaints.) The storage basket is difficult to get things in and out of. It’s like it’s a little too close to the bottom of the seat. I do find it to be roomy (though not huge) once I get things maneuvered in there. Also, it is a little bulky in my trunk. I don’t bother removing any of the wheels. I drive a Huyndai Sonata and this fits perfectly fine in the trunk. It’s only when I try to fit this and my pack and go at the same time that I have a challenge. (but for reference sake, they both fit)

    Overall you won’t find a better stroller anywhere. I’m not even considering buying or needing another stoller – ever! I highly, highly recommend this product!!!!!

    Notes: I purchased the console that has the drink holder and pocket. It makes all the difference in the world. Also, if you’re contemplating the attachment for infant carriers I would recommend it. I did not purchase it, b/c it was so much more $$ and the specs say they can go in at 2mo. I didn’t think it was worth it. The reality is that even at 2mo my son was swimming in it. It worked alright, but I think he may have been more comfy in his seat. Also, if you have the attachment there’s no need to also get a snap and go stroller. Just use this one for everything. I wish I had bought the adapter.

  11. the boy's mama on February 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is an excellent stroller- we have been using it along with the car seat adapter since we came home from the hospital and he was very comfortable in the stroller/car seat combo. I love that I can steer easily with one hand, while holding my coffee in the other. Although it seems like folding and unfolding could be hard, even my mother in law can do it easily. It looks a bit bulky and cumbersome, but I have gotten to the point where I can lift it in and out of the car with one hand.
    I do have a couple of minor issues- the first being that once we took off the car seat adapter and actually sat our son in the stroller seat, he seemed a bit uncomfortable. The seat is too reclined and he tries to push himself up with his arms, even when the seat is adjusted to be as upright as possible. The basket on bottom is a hard to access making it difficult to store items. Traveling with this stroller is a little difficult- when flying alone and trying to balance a baby and a car seat on top of folding and checking in the stroller can be a challenge.
    Otherwise this stroller is a great investment. We have used it in the city, on the beach, in the rain and in the sun- all without difficulty.

  12. jen on March 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I use this stroller for everything. I wish that I had known about it sooner. As I gift I received another stroller which worked fine until I tried the BOB. It is so easy to push and with the suspension system my little one stays comfortable. The swivel wheel is perfect for easily moving around the store and the locking feature makes it a great jogging stroller. I tell all my pregnant friends (even the non-joggers) that this is the stroller to have. It is on the heavy side but folds up easily. I’d recommend also purchasing the infant carrier adapter so that it can be used with a newborn.

  13. Cash's Mom on March 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    After reading all the reviews & listening to friends that raved about it, I decided to fork over the money & buy the BOB revolution stroller. After the carseat adapter & the console attachment the total cost was over [$]! Being so expensive, I had VERY high expectations for this stroller when I ordered it. I absolutely love it! It is lightweight, maneuvers extremely well (that’s an understatement), rides like butter & is so functional! Not exactly the most compact (I had been using the Snap-n-Go) in comparision to what I was used to…but what do you expect when you buy a multipurpose stroller? It will replace any stroller I would ever need in the first 5 years of my son’s life!

  14. SAHMommy on April 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was so excited that we were able to afford such a “nice” stroller. I have had it up to a month (returned it today), and I just came to the realization that it wasn’t for me after a few strolls. The storage underneath is SO hard to get to. The seat reclines too far back and my daughter seems very uncomfortable. She would rather sit more upright and have something to hold onto. I did buy the water bottle tray and the velcro kept coming undone so I couldn’t put anything too heavy (like a full water bottle) in it. I was sad to give it up, but it wasn’t about me having a cool stroller, it was about my daughter being comfortable. She just turned 1. I’m looking into the Jeep Liberty because it has a swivel wheel and the seat sits very upright – not to mention the storage underneath is SO easy to get to.

  15. mommy to jack on May 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Used to always use our bugaboo frog but HATED the fold etc. The bob is amazing!!! Just this morning i took out my bob out of my SUV and unfolded it WHILE holding my 7 month old!!!!!! I was shocked! The thing that sold us on this jogger vs, the competition was the HUGE canopy- which is a necesity in so. Ca and the way it pushes. It steers itself literally, much more so than our bugaboo. Other things i love are: the handlebar (although wish it was adjustable), the basket (large but remember i am used to the frog’s which is HORRIBLE), the mesh storage area on back of seat, and the color opions. We love the orange, it is a burnt deep orange, not a bright orange. It is definally not a small stroller but i plan on using it at the mall as well as our daily walks with our dog. Another reason we choose this one over others was the fact that it is an actual jogger vs. all-terrian (valco, bumbleride indie, mbu etc) and my husband is going to use our bob to run a few times a week and the bob will be great for that as well. […] LOVE IT! great for neighborhood walks and SOOO easy to throw in the back of the car.

  16. Becky, a city mom in the country on May 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I initially balked at the price, but this stroller is worth every penny. We live in a rural area, so our walking paths consist of gravel roads and torn up sidewalks- the BOB Revolution handles it all with complete ease. I LOVE this stroller. Folding it up couldn’t be easier (seriously!), and it even fits easily into my tiny trunk! It’s lighter than the travel system stroller that I sold, because I’m never using another stroller. This stroller is so easy to maneuver, fold and take apart. Did I mention I love it?

  17. lezlig80 on May 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I can not say enough about the Revolution- it is awesome! I can push my 7 year old with one hand easily, and it is comfortable for my 3 month old. It turns on a dime, and the quality of the construction is amazing. It is not bulky for a jogger, and the quick release tires allow for a compact fold with little effort. The shocks make for a super comfy ride. I do recommend the handlebar console, it works very well and adds some convenience. I wish this had been the first stroller I bought, because it would have been the last.

  18. SCREAMING MIMI'S MOM on May 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    AFTER HAVING TWO JOGGERS PREVIOUSLY, THE PIVOTING FRONT WHEEL ON THE BOB’S REVOLUTION IS LIKE A WHOLE DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE! I COULD NEVER GO BACK TO THE OLD JOGGER STYLE W/ A LOCKED FRONT WHEEL. IT IS INCREDIBLY EASY TO MANEUVER WHETHER OFF ROAD, SUPERMARKETS OR ON PAVEMENT. BUT THE REVOLUTION DOES GIVE YOU THE OPTION TO LOCK THE FRONT WHEEL IF YOU DO WANT TO OCCASIONALLY. WE LOVE THIS JOGGER! VERY DURABLE, AND NICE LOOKING!

  19. Mom in Oakland on June 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! My baby loves this stroller and falls asleep easily in it when she won’t go down any other way. I have another smaller and lighter stroller that I use when I am going in and out of the car a lot (because the Bob is quite big and heavy) but this is a great stroller for long walks around the neighborhood, and for walking on dirt trails in the park. I highly recommend it! This seat is not great for newborns or small infants, but an infant car seat attachment can be installed (although I found a snap-and go system with infant car seat to be much more practical).

  20. Mommy of Seamus on June 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    After much deliberation and research we decided to purchase this stroller: the best purchase we’ve made for our guy so far! I am not much of a jogger but wanted this stroller to power walk as we live on the coastline and do a lot of walking at area beaches. the Mall, Target and even Yankee Candle shopping have been no problem at all with this stroller.The handling of this stroller is unbelievable……it actually handles better than our stroller combo. My only disappointment is that the console wasn’t part of the price. […] Its folds up like nothing, but you do need two hands unlike the combo strollers that can be closed and stored with one hand.

  21. Busy Mommy on June 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We use this stroller nearly every day and jog with it frequently. It is absolutely worth the money. My daughter (now 15 mos) is very comfortable in it either sitting or reclined, the sunshade keeps her cool and out of the sun, the shocks are super, it glides effortlessly and the swivel option is perfect for walking and maneuvering. The only downside I have found is that it does not lock in place when folded, but the wrist strap can remedy that. If you are actually going to jog, seriously consider this stroller!

  22. Kate on June 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We are so glad we got this stroller. It is expensive but worth it. It is very easy to push and is just a smooth riding stroller. We got this when my son was around 3 months old and he is 6 months now. We did not get the car seat adapter and we were able to use it when he was 3 months old. We did purchase the cup holder and I would recommend purchasing that. It is bulky and a much heavier than the light weight strollers but it is very easy to pick it up by the handle and open it. We do keep a light weight stroller in this car in addition to this one for quick trips but since we have this one we did not put much money into the other one as we primarily use this one. I would recommend this stroller to anyone who is considering purchasing it.

  23. Busy Mummy of 2! on June 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I recently just got my stroller and so far its great. Awesome sterring, holds lots of weight, i dont even need any force to push it, Nice huge canopy.
    But heres my problem, I got this stroller mainly for my 3 1/2 y.o. (after selling my double). And my concern is how fast he will be growing out of this thing. He is 42 inches and his head just fits barely under the canopy. If he gets any taller thats it, he will have past the canopy. I assume ill be buying another one preety soon. Also I dont like that the back part is not firm. its just fabric, so my kids almost look like there hunched over when sitting in it. I also wonder if the seat itself will eventually sink way down too becouse of continuous weight. I guess I just perfer a harder surface.
    All in all, i like it but i still can stomach that i spend over $300 for it. UGH!! Also the fold is OK but I think it should automatically lock it place once you fold it.

  24. AK on July 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is soooo worth the money. Feels light to the touch when steering, has great suspension and looks awesome. Be sure to also get the handle bar console.

  25. Walking mom on July 17th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I researched for months before my daughter was born. Read every review, the parent boards, the good and the bad. The BOB just kept coming out ahead in everyone’s opinion, except for moms who were strictly looking for a mall walker. So many people wrote that this was the one stroller they used for everything, it just seemed like the perfect fit. As an added bonus, hubby was excited about the level of performance from this piece of outdoor gear. We did not have the BOB when we got home from the hospital. Friends of ours gave us a Snap and Go to use, as everyone says this is the way to go. Not for us! It was terrible. The 4 wheels are so small that it bounced and jounced baby every which way — even on the sidewalk. Her poor little head was like a ping pong ball inside her car seat. I was not comfortable taking her out for any walks with such bouncing around.[…] My husband was excited to snap this one together, and he is not generally eager to put anything together! The BOB looks beefy though, and he couldn’t wait to try it out. The girlie loves it! We’re using it with the infant car seat adapter and it could not be easier. It drops into place securely, with the option of locking with a click strap. The improvement in the ride is amazing! The shock absorbers on this offer seriously cushy riding. When baby is fussy, I bounce the stroller lightly on the shocks and she giggles. The 3 wheel design is excellent. I’ve been using this stroller every day to go for hour long walks around my neighborhood. With the 3 wheels, I cross over curbs, grass, bumpy roads, and uneven sidewalks without thinking twice about it. Best of all, the stroller pushes like a dream. It is easier to steer than anything else I tested, and you can swivel in an absolute circle with ease!We love the console, keep money and keys in there for the occasional walk down for coffee or groceries. We absolutely love this stroller and would highly recommend it to anyone who has been reading reviews, considering options, and wants big bang for the buck. Pricy? Yes, but it seems easy to imagine having this stroller and being excited to use it for years to come! Good luck!

  26. Casey who likes walking on July 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The pros: It rolls really well – very smooth. I do a lot of walking on sidewalks and it is much smoother than my other strollers over the expansion joints. It requires almost no effort to push. It rolls well off-pavement, too. The brake is awesome – if it’s on, the stroller isn’t going anywhere. I love the color; it’s a bright happy deep orange.

    The cons: My big 1 year old son looks terribly uncomfortable in it. The fabric back lacks support and he hunches over, and it’s a too deep and cuts into the back of his knees. It’s also very hot – after our morning walks he’s usually soaking wet. (I wish someone would make a mesh stroller!)

    It’s awkward to adjust the back, and when it’s in the fully upright position the extra fabric that’s used while reclining hits my son in the head. How’s he supposed to fit when he’s taller? He’s only 1!

    I HATE the canopy. I was worried when I bought it and should have trusted my instincts. The canopy looks big, but it can’t be adjusted for the angle of the sun. If I walk in the evenings or mornings, the sun blinds my son because the canopy doesn’t go low enough. My mall crawler stroller has an adjustable canopy that’s a much better design at 1/3 the price.

    It’s big. It’s too wide to roll into the closet I want to store it in, and it’s still pretty big when folded (and won’t stay folded without the velcro strap I promptly lost). The upside is that I never kick the tires when walking because they’re so far apart.

    Cupholders cost extra, ridiculous on a stroller this expensive. I wouldn’t know, but don’t joggers drink water? The storage basket is hard to access but a decent size – I carry a blanket and a loaf of bread to feed the fish in it.

    Bottom line: It rolls really well and is well made, but it’s hot, big, uncomfortable, and expensive. It was a gift; I would have (and still would) opt for a less expensive model if buying myself.

  27. Trish the happy mom on September 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    When I was pregnant with my daughter I purchased this stroller and a bugaboo, it was my first child so I didnt know which strollers were “good”. My daughter is now five months and I love and use this stroller more than my bugaboo! The ride is soo smooth, I feel like I could push it with my pinky. I live in the city, and we dont have the best sidewalks but when im with my bob my baby doesnt feel the bumps and niether do I. I also bought the car seat adapter which is AWESOME, my peg perego fits perfectly into the stroller, which makes an great travel system. I take this stroller everywhere shopping (the basket isnt bad), parks, jogging at Central park and I even took it to Disney world! Bottom line is this stroller is great and so worth the money. Good luck shopping =]

  28. JC on September 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Overall I love this stroller. We got it as both my husband and I walk/run/rollerblade daily. Also we spend a lot of time walking on trails in the many nature reserves in the cities. For all these functions there is not a better stroller. SO smooth, turns on a dime and can be steered with one hand. No problem running with this and the dog.
    THe only cons I have found so far (3 months of use) is that 1) The basket is incredibly difficult to access. There have only been a couple times we wanted to use it and it didn’t work either time. 2) IT doesn’t clamp shut when folded, although this is only a nuscience for the 5 seconds it takes to load the stroller into the trunk.
    Overall we are very happy and would buy it again.

  29. eb on January 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We have taken the stroller to the beach, the mountain on trails, the running ring, the mall… you name it, and it performs excellent…! I love that you can fix the front wheel but we mostly have it in the turn mode, even when running, is very easy to fold and to remove the tires if you need that extra space in your trunk, we have put it in the trunk of a VW Beetle..! This is the only stroller that we have purchased (with the car seat adapter) and the only that we have used for 2 years now…! I had a premature baby and she was very comfy in this stroller.

  30. kylie's mom on January 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    great for active moms

  31. Debbie on February 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this jogging stroller as a gift for my niece’s shower. Her husband put it together immediately. They love it. […]

  32. DAD'S NEW BABY TOY! on February 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    WOW! TO BOB STROLLERS. TO ALL STROLLER HUNTERS DON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHINGS LESS THAN THE BEST. WE TESTED THE BUGABOO AND THE PEG PEREGO AND ALSO THE PHIL AND TED. WE EVEN LOOKED AT THE ORBIT….OUCH! WAY OVER PRICED. THE BOB IS WELL BUILT WITH HIGH END MATERIALS. FOR A JOGGING STROLLER AND EVERYDAY USE IT IS NOT AS BULKY AS OTHER JOGGING STROLLERS. MY WIFE IS AMAZED AT HOW WELL IT MANEUVERS. WE CAN’T FORGET THE LIL PASSENGER. MY BABY GIRL LOVES IT AS WELL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS STROLLER.

  33. New mom on February 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    After much research on the best jogging stroller, we finally decided on the BOB after reading many on-line reviews & recommendation from friends. It is everything we thought it would be…totally worth the $$$. We love that we could order the car seat attachment for newborns, as we can start walking right away in our neighborhood & eventually will be able to run with it. Comparing this stroller to the snap n go….it provides such a smooth ride for my baby….it glides over bumps in the sidewalk & he sleeps soundly throughout the entire walk. I am SO happy with this stroller & would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to jog eventually, walk quickly for excercise now with a newborn & can also use it for parks & trails, it the front wheel locks or unlocks based on your desired excercise.

  34. hairstylist/ fit mom on March 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I use the stroller to do mostly sidewalks and shopping malls so it really helps out on tight corners and narrow sidewalks. I would heavily recommend this stroller for the light and smooth capabilities with its aerodynamic design.

  35. New Mommy! on March 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We love this product. My husband and I often go off road on trail hikes and also jog on the road. The adjustable front wheel makes the BOB Revolution perfect for both. It is actually great for any occasion… You definitely want the infant car seat adapter with tray if you want to put your little guy in there early. It offers a very smooth ride. I recommend it!

  36. Mom of 3 on March 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller. I started researching joggers when I was 6 mos preggo and finally settled on one when the baby was 4 mos old. I read review upon review and finally decided to go with this BOB. It moves with ease and is definitely worth the money. I have had other joggers with my older children and I wish I’d invested in a BOB two kids ago, I think I would have been able to eliminate buying multiple joggers over the years. […] I was able to assemble by myself. Directions are clear and easy to follow. My son loves floating along when I’m out running or walking with him in this stroller.

  37. Teacher04 on April 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    So I finally decided on this BOB after my Bumbleride flier did not do well on the slightest cracks in my neighborhood (and misfitted basket). […]This BOB stroller rides so smooth, the canopy is very large and shades my baby’s entire body (legs get some sun), the colors are great (the bumbleride colors seem to be more suited for women, what about the dads?) Colapsing the BOB is easy, only weighs about 2 lbs more than the flier, is ALOT cheaper than the Mountain Bugggy, turns on a dime, and feels like excellent quality. The basket is somewhat hard to get to, but unless you need to bend down often, its really not a negative. It is also roomier that the Bumbleride or Mountain Buggy. Stop researching joggers and get the BOB!!

  38. Happiest Mom Alive on April 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I just bought this stroller. I was a little skeptical about the price, but I am so glad I spent the extra money. It is so light that I barely have to push it. I love that the front wheel can either lock or pivot. I use the stroller for both exercising and shopping. I was looking for a jogging stroller with a large canopy since my son is very fair skinned. The canopy on this stroller covers great. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wouldn’t recommend using it for a child under about 6 months or about 15 lbs. My son is 17 lbs and is still a bit small for it, but at least he will have room to grow. Spend the extra money and get this stroller. You will get your monies worth!!!

  39. little miss on April 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    You just have to have the BOB. my 14 month old Son just Loves it! I never saw him so relaxed in a stroller! He always tried to get out of our other strollers, and now he loves the BOB so much that he cry’s when i get him out! he can go for hours and hours in the BOB! It’s the easiest stroller to push, it rides so smooth and goes great on any terrain. It’s also very easy to put in the car. We Love our BOB!!!

    My friend recommended this stroller to me and now I recommend it to all my friends. Don’t waist your money on the cheaper joggers…you get what you pay for. I have used it since my son was a newborn, we purchased the car seat adapter and it works great! I have the Chicco car seat which is not on the list of approved car seats for the BOB adapter, but my husband just took off one of the screwed on bars and it works perfectly. It is still very safe and secure. This stroller is amazing!

    I have not used the stroller yet, since I have been on light bed rest for most of my pregnancy, so I did extensive research for the best stroller out there. I am do this month and I can’t wait to get running. I can say that the construstion of the stroller is fantastic. We put it together in 3 minutes and My husband took it for a test run and found it to be smooth and sturdy. It is easy to open and close. The one thing I wish is that it came with the car seat adapter. Other than that I am happy with my BOB stroller.

    Just got the BOB Revolution after lots of researching. This is the best jogging stroller out there. My 13 month old is so comfortable in the jogger and the shading was perfect. The swivel front wheel made maneuvering the stroller so simple. Folds up really easily too.

    I love this stroller. It took me awhile to decide to spend the money. But boy, it’s worth every cent. The instructions are very wordy, but easy to put together. Before I had the wheels on, my 12 month old son was already sitting in it. The stroller manuvers so easily. It actually glides. It’s great in tight aisles. My son is very comfortable in it. I haven’t used it for running yet. But just pushing it during walking workouts makes you want to run. Please don’t talk about “looks”. I’ve gotten soooo many compliments its not funny. I’ve been on sidewalks, mulch at the playround, outdoor walking paths, gravel, the mall and the stroller hold up. My son also enjoys the 2 side pockets. Once I was looking for his pacifier. I thought he’d lost it. My son placed it nicely in the side pockets. The stroller easily folds down and fits into the trunk of my Honda Civic 2006. My old stroller was the only thing that fit in the trunk. Now I can put groceries in the trunk too! Once again, totally worth the money.

    This is the most solid, well-constructed stroller I have ever seen. That being said, it is pretty lightweight for a 3-wheeler. I am a pretty small wimp and I have no problem folding, lifting and stowing it in the car or the closet. Very high quality materials and minimal assembly required. I got it so I could “go anywhere” and loose the baby weight. It is perfect. The front wheel can either move for all-terrain or it can be locked into place for jogging straight on a paved trail. The canopy provides ample adjustable shade for baby’s fragile skin. You will definately need an “insert” to accomodate little babies or a baby under 2 months… the harness is great, but the cab is roomy. Baby can sit or recline. Folds pretty flat (but cannot be stored on end.. kinda awkward in the closet unless it is on its side). Great suspension, Fabulous tire tread, turns on a dime without fear of tipping, maneuvers and glides with very little pushing effort, and very stable. A great investment.

    We love our new BOB stroller! It’s great for all kinds of terrain: beach, woods, and of course the mall. Make sure you get the “Revolution” for the swivel front wheel – it makes the maneuverability wonderful in tight spaces! The only dislikes we had were: (1) not enough storage space in the cubby on the bottom and it is difficult to get to; (2) not enough accessories included, like you have to buy the cupholder extra as well as the adaptor for the car seat. Our likes include (l) easy to stow in trunk of car, (2) lightweight, (3) very maneuverable, (4) with the car seat adaptor, the baby seems to sleep well even on the roughest terrain because of the great suspension system. All in all, we would recommend this stroller to anyone!

    We researched and researched in an attempt to find a stroller that could fit an active lifestyle, uneven pavement “strolling” and one that would last longer than the average 30 or so lbs. We are BEYOND thrilled with the BOB Revolution. (In mesa orange.) The BOB fits perfectly with the Chicco KeyFit infant car seat, too with the car seat adapter. ($50 or so.) Very secure. Honestly, this strollers turns on a dime, with one hand! It’s incredibly comfortable for both myself (5 ft. 3 inches) and my husband (6 ft.) to push. LOVE that the front wheel swivels for regular strolling and stays locked for jogging. It’s easy to stow and fits perfectly in our SUVs. My husband is uber-impressed with the shock absorber system – it’s so smooth and handles all kinds of terrain perfectly. Finally, we’ve even tried this out on our 30 lb. niece AND our 45 lb. niece and it was quite comfortable for them – and SO easy to push.

    BUY this stroller

    I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this stroller! I was looking to burn off some baby weight and thought a jogging stroller would be a great way to do it. This stroller is light, folds easily. It is also deasily modified to use with a newborn. Many jogging strollers aren’t safe for infants under 8-12 months, but I didn’t want to wait that long to get going! The BOB company makes a special modifier that allows you to snap your infant car seat right in so you’re off and running! You’re also able to use any infant car seat with the stroller. Some companies say that you can use an infant car seat with their strollers, but they make you buy the infant car seat from their company in order for it to fit. The BOB car seat holder is made for almost any brand of car seat and doesn’t get in the way when you go to fold the stroller up, either. I have a Toyota Prius and was a little bit nervous about it fitting in the back, but I can fit the BOB back there along with all my groceries no problem! The stroller may be pricey, but it is worth every penny.

    The one and only complaint that I have is that the tubes inside of the rugged tires aren’t thorn-resistant. The first time I used it the tires were flat within about 10 minutes. This was easily fixed at my local bike shop, but it did cost me another $35 on top of the price of the stroller itself. I’m not sure if anyone outside of Arizona needs such tough tubes inside their tires, though 🙂

    This stroller is fabulous. Easy to assemble, just attach the tires (which takes about 3 minutes). The shocks are great, the ride seems to be very comfortable for the little guy. We could have skipped the infant travel system and used this as our only stroller by attaching the infant car seat adapter had we done more research on the BOB before buying the other stroller. It’s very easy to navigate through small areas and one-handed steering is so nice. The sunshade is amazing and it is SO easy to fold down, etc. Fits easily in a sedan trunk. LOVE this stroller.

    I just finished taking this stroller out of the box and setting up. Let me first say that I couldn’t believe how easy it is taking the wheels on and off. Not that this will be necessary very often but later down the road if I want to store this more compactly, no tools will be needed.

    The stroller pushes like a dream and compacts down more than I thought that it would. Although it is of course more bulky than what I was originally looking at getting (the Snap N’Go), it has all the 3 strollers that I was going to get in one. The price is a lot but after I added up the 3 others I was going to purchase and the storage space they would have taken, I realized it was silly not to just get this one. I will see how it goes and imagine I may just use an umbrella stroller from time to time but I really doubt that often as this is so easy to maneuver, set up, and collapse.

    Fantastic stroller and it goes perfect with my orange Chicco infant car seat.

    We love the BOB!!! We have a Peg Perego Pliko P3 that we use for mostly shopping and it is great for that, but the BOB ROCKS! It folds easily, rolls like a dream, and is high quality materials! We took it to the beach and it rolls great through the sand, and we take it to our park which has a small gravel walk path and it rolls great. If you are looking for a stroller for outdoors than the BOB is for you. If you are looking for a stroller to use at the mall or indoors only than a standard stroller should be fine for you. I am 5’8″ and my husband is 6’1″ and we don’t kick the wheels. We put our daughter in it at 3-4 months. We also got the stroller strides version which is red and comes with a drink holder. Buy it!

    Love the quality and the bright orange color for visibility near traffic!

  52. Mom of 1 on July 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We have had a Travel system since my son was born, but for gravel trails that we like to walk on, it didn’t handle so well. We now use our BOB almost exclusively and I LOVE it! It handles great, so easy to take into small spaces and steer with one hand. It is great to be able to fully recline the seat and let my son nap while we take a walk.

  53. Jen on July 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love my BOB stroller. It’s perfect. You really don’t need another stroller, however, I did also get the Snap ‘n Go just to have something smaller for little indoor excursions. The only problem… I wish it were compatible with all car seats. I got a Chico car seat before the BOB only to find it’s not 100% compatible. Although, it does work – – It just doesn’t snap in like the Preggo, Graco, etc…

  54. Amy with the firecracker on July 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We have three strollers (Chicco, Maclaren and BOB) and I love them all, BUT I really love the BOB! Its so lightweight to push and it is great on the beach (turnaround to pull). My DH uses it to jog with our son and loves it too! It has gotten a few flat tires though.

    The only small complaint that I have is that my son who is now 17 months looks a little kinked in the seat. He is not sitting straight up. Perhaps I don’t have the back straps tight enough? It was pricey, but you can find deals when REI has their annual sale.

  55. Hannah's Mom on August 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I got the BOB for my husband as part of his Father’s Day gift. He was so excited to use the jogging stroller. It is easy to use and works great on all different types of terrain. The top does a great job keeping the sun and wind off of my daughter. My only complaint is that the Chicco infant carrier is not compatible with the infant carrier adapter. We made it work but it doesn’t fit in as secure as it would with the other carriers. It also very bulky when you fold it down with the infant carrier adapter attached.
