    This stroller is AWESOME and so fun to stroll! My husband and I both love it. It is great on all types of terrain and always pushes and turns smoothly and with great ease. It virtually strolls itself! Also the sun canopy is fantastic and provides excellent coverage for our infant son. We love that you can look through the “window” on the canopy to see the baby. The folding and unfolding mechanism is really easy, as well. This stroller is by far my favorite baby gear item! I highly recommend it—you won’t be disappointed in the least.

  2. Kim on June 14th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! This stroller is the best for everything from long walks to mall trips. It is very easy to push and even though I am only 5 feet tall, the handle bar is a good height for me. But my husband is comfortable as well. This and a lighter weight “umbrella type” stroller are the only ones we have and it’s all we need! I highly advise getting this stroller if you enjoy outdoor activities. The shade provides great coverage. My son, now 6 months, has been using it since his first week at home loves it. The attatchment for the car seat is easy to install and remove and took our Graco SafeSeat perfectly. Definitely worth the money.

  3. B's mom on June 29th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I started off with a travel system but then I discovered BOB and never looked back! My son is only 4 months old and he loves this thing! I love it to because once I recline his seat he falls asleep. They’re pretty pricey but worth it for all the time we spend outdoors. If you’re not an outdoors person it’s probably not worth the money-it is after all a jogger!BOB has exellent customer service to if you ever hav any concerns.

  4. Ami on July 2nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I just LOVE my BOB stroller! We’ve only had it a few weeks, and it is quickly becoming my “everyday” stroller. I work out with it often, take it to restaurants, and have even taken it to the beach! It rides so smooth, and the swivel wheel makes it turn on a dime. I even received a compliment on it from a young man who remarked, “I didn’t expect that stroller to make such a tight turn”. I know it’s expensive, but it’s worth every penny. I bought a cheaper jogger to start with, and quickly returned it. You can’t go wrong with the BOB!

  5. California Mom on July 15th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We purchase this stroller and the Chicco Cortina for our son when he was born. We ended up selling the chicco because we used the BOB everywhere we went. It folds more compactly than most conventional stroller (even though it’s a jogging stroller) handles any terrain with ease (we use it on trails and at the mall) and is really no bigger than most traditional strollers. So if you want you can actually take it in stores etc… or you can lock the front wheel in place and go for a run. My son really enjoys riding in it and if he falls asleep I can recline the seat very easily. I really can’t say enough about how much we love, love, love this stroller. It was a big investment but I use it several times a day. Even if I’m just outside in the garden or playing with the dog it gives my little guy a great place to sit and watch the action and it rolls very easily over the grass etc.. in the yard. Also, this works great if you buy the infant car seat adapter for the Graco snug ride. This really is the only stroller you will ever need. Can you tell I really like my BOB?:)

    Oh, I almost forgot. We even fly with our BOB. The wheels come off super easy and we put it in a stoller bag at the gate (so the airlines don’t destroy it) and pick it up when we get off the plane.

  6. First Time Mommy on September 10th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE this stroller. It is worth the money. My son is only 5 weeks old and we still have him in his infant car seat but, when we go for our walks, we put the car seat in the stroller. The ride is so smooth. We love it.

  7. New Mom who didn't have a clue on October 6th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I am a new Mom who had another high-end stroller when I had my son and had no clue what to look for. I ended up never using my old stroller and buying the BOB. It is expensive once you buy the accessories but is it worth it! I take it hiking, shopping…everywhere. It is amazing. It holds a lot, moves easily and my husband enjoys it as well. I recommend it to anyone and am so happy with it.

  8. Mom of a big 9 month old! on November 30th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller when i was pregnant, we got the Peg perego car seat and the adaptor and was great as a travel system. I enjoy the big space, even my dog fit on the front when we go for a ride. I love it until now.

    Now our son is a 26 pounds 9 month old, and looks like the back of the seat does NOT provide sufficient support he keeps sliding from the seat and we have to constant fix him putting more upright, he is starting to lift himself trying to get out of it because it is unconfortable. He cries a lot lately in it that i guess makes us get frustraited.

    I talked to a stroller expert in one store, and they told me basically this stroller is great for jogging and short periods of time, or a bigger kid but i guess in the moment i am right now is not quite the best.

    It is great when he goes to sleep, i love the recline option.

    we are thinking to get another stroller more firm to a everyday use.

    We tried the Bugaboo and he was so straight up and looking really happy to see the world infront of him, but off course it is such a big difference in price. Will see how this story ends.

  9. jen on December 10th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is the best piece of baby gear we have. I use this stroller nearly everyday for a neighborhood walk with my 4 month old son. It is incredibly smooth to push and my son seems to really enjoy it. The wheels easily go through snow, gravel, and grass. I have not yet used it to run as it is recommended to wait until 6 months, but the wheel seems to lock out well without any jitters so I expect it to be a smooth run. It folds down easily and more compactly than our Peg stroller. Had I known how great this stroller was, I never would have bought a more traditional style stroller. This is the only one you need….

  10. Rand, Bella's dad on December 22nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    After a couple of months of reading reviews my wife and I decided to purchase the BOB Revolution for our newborn. Out of the box we were impressed. Not too surprising, though, BOB is known for making extremely reliable bicycle trailers. Its construction is second to none. It folds to small enough to fit into any trunk and if you need to put it behind a seat it requires only seconds to remove the wheels. Nearly effortless to push and turning in small spaces has yet to be trouble. We attached the infant car seat adapter and now the warm and snuggly. I read reviews that mentioned that it doesn’t fold will with the adapter on. Must have been a problem that BOB addressed. We’ve never had a problem. While it does sit above the norm for price it is worth every penny. Give yourself the opportunity to write a review like this. Purchase the BOB!

  11. Tina on January 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a wonderful stroller. It is such a smooth ride and is extremely easy to handle. It glides through any terrain. I love it!!!

  12. Kate from MA on January 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is absolutely wonderful. I use daily for walks, jogging, running errands, etc. It’s like driving a luxury SUV. It’s great in the snow too!
    Don’t even think twice about whether you should purchase this stroller. Just do it! You won’t regret it.

  13. Jen on January 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    After deciding we hated the pre-packaged travel systems and figuring it would be impractical to own several different strollers each for a different purpose (regular stroller, jogger, travel system), we found a BOB at a local store and test drove it after a friend who owns one raved about her BOB. We immediately loved it!We’re now using it with the carseat adapter bar as a travel system with our Graco Snugride infant seat. It is extremely maneuverable and smooth riding. We use it for everything from trips to the mall to walks around our neighborhood which includes gravel paths. It folds up very nicely even with the adapter bar, and I can easily lift it in and out of the trunk of my car. I’m looking forward to using it as a jogger once our daughter is a few months older.I am so happy we decided to go a little above our orginal price range to purchase this stroller – it was worth every penny! […] I can’t recommend it enough!

  14. Braxton's Mom on January 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I’m the type of person that tries to get the most bang for the buck, but when we looked at strollers we weren’t impressed with the less expensive ones. After months and months of research we decided on the Bob and I’m so glad we did. The turning radius is awesome, and when we take our little guy out for a walk it is so smooth that he instantly falls asleep. If you have the money to spend, I would get this stroller, it is so universal and compacts very small. We have a jeep and its really hard to fit stuff in the back, but not with this stroller.

  15. CMize on February 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love my BOB!!! It was very expensive but most people spend about the same on multiple strollers. I use this stroller for everything and I love it. I used my infant seat in it and it is so durable for all terrains (shopping mall, unpaved running track…etc.) I can’t say enough about this product. We have an umbrella stroller but I still use the Bob so much more. This is the way to go to consolidate strollers and it’s great for jogging as well!

  16. Linnea's Mom on February 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is the best stroller. We bought the car seat attachment and use it with our Graco Snugride. It is super easy to walk through stores with as well as on hiking trails. It fits nicely, and with room, in the trunk of my Camry. It is easy to fold up and set up, plus it is light weight.It is our only stroller. Super smooth ride.

  17. Runner at heart! on February 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’ve been running for years and enjoyed every moment of the bob. Although I was thrilled to be pregnant, I hated the day that I running became uncomfortable. I was so excited to get back to running. This stroller is so light and easy to control that I was able to get outside quickly after my little one was born. My carseat made the transition easy. I continue to use it daily and can honestly say that it was my best purchase. If you are a runner, you won’t be disappointed! However, it doesn’t fold small, so traveling with it isn’t easy.

  18. E's mommy on March 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We did a ton of stroller research and ended up buying 3 strollers before the baby was born, thinking we needed all 3 for different purposes, but it turns out we would’ve been happy with just the BOB. It is so easy to push and the padded handle bar makes it extremely comfortable. Baby is only two months old but we’ve already used it a ton – for walks (a few jogs) and just around town. It is a bit bigger than our frame stroller and our umbrella stroller, but the wheels pop on and off so easily that we can fit it in anywhere.We also bought the $50 infant bar that attaches to the BOB so baby’s infant car seat clicks right onto the BOB and we could start using it from day 1 without worrying about her holding up her head. […]The BOB revolution has a front wheel that turns (unlike many jogging strollers) – a huge bonus. You have the option of locking the front wheel, which I tried once on the sand, but I really prefer to have it spin – it makes it so easy to turn the stroller.This is by far our #1 baby purchase – I highly recommend it!

  19. new mom nikki on April 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is the best gift I got for my baby! I love to walk, and its perfect for long distances. Nice and light, easy to steer. My 10lb dog loves the storage area underneath to go for the ride! We bought the kit for the infant car seat and it works great.

  20. Mom of a 7yo. and a 6mo. on April 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Hard to fold and does not recline enough. I should have shopped around more. You don’t get what you pay for. It is light and strolls nice. I thought I would be more impressed considering the amount I paid! probably good for joggers. Too bulky for everyday use.

  21. Sue on April 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was looking for a jogging stroller and first bought the Baby Trend Expedition. However, the wheel started to shake when my husband went jogging and it didn’t fit in my trunk (small compact car). I started looking for another jogger. I came across the Bob although the price seemed somewhat high. I wanted to see this stroller before ordering it online so I went to a store, which has the BOB on its floor and my expectations were far exceeded. What I especially liked about the stroller was the following:
    1) the back wheels easily come off;
    2) straps easily adjust;
    3) the canopy is huge;
    4) the stroller is light weight;
    5) the stroller folds very compactly
    6) the stroller is made for children up to 70lbs;
    7) the stroller is not as bulky as many of the joggers.

    After buying the stroller, I was further impressed by how easily the stroller turns and how smooth the stroller is to push — it almost goes by itself (really!!!). This stroller fits in my trunk too.

    This is one stroller that can be used as a primary stroller. This stroller and a little umbrella stroller is all that is needed.

  22. New Mom on April 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love the way this stroller handles, it is a smooth ride and my 3 week old sleeps the whole time. It does need extra support for the newborns. It is well made, very sturdy and durable. I do wish that it had more room underneath to store the diaper bag and it takes up a lot of room, I wish it could fold down smaller. Overall I think it is one of my favorite baby items.

  23. Dee on May 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    After reading the reviews, I’m so glad I got this stroller. You get what you pay for–this stroller is high quality and very durable. I can use it for walking, jogging, and it really is all terrain. We bought the car seat adapater and our Chicco KeyFit baby seat fits perfectly in it so I didn’t have to buy a travel system. With the car seat in it, you can actually jog with your baby before 3 months since their neck is well supported and the stroller is quite smooth. The wheel locks for running, and you can unlock it for use indoors/tight spaces like shopping, and it’s got a good safety brake. If I had to mention a downside, it would be that it’s a little bulky and doesn’t completely fold with the car seat adapter. However, these are minor issues since it folds 95% of the way, and is light to lift. It’s the only stroller I have and it does it all, as far as I’m concerned. When my son gets a little older, I may consider buying an inexpensive umbrella stroller for traveling on airplanes but you can still check the Bob onboard a flight. Bottom line–you won’t be disappointed.

  24. CAS on May 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    After much research and deliberation, my husband and I decided on the BOB. We’re expecting our first child and I was having a hard time deciding what stroller(s) I would need. Initially, I was against the idea of a jogging stroller because of the size and bulk but after testing it out in the store, it far surpassed others we were looking at. We bought the infant adapter, as well, so we’ll be able to use it from day 1. I don’t find the fold to be difficult at all and it is a very smooth ride and feels very solid. While it is pricier than I had intended I feel very confident and happy with our purchase.

  25. Jenn on June 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought it when our baby was 5 months old. He loves it..falls asleep right away. It is worth every penny!! Wish I bought it sooner! It is very easy to use and practically pushes itself. What’s nice, I can change the front wheel to a locked position and pull it backwards to keep the sun out of his eyes. The only negative I have found, is that it vears off to the right a bit when the front wheel is in the locked position (while pushing it forward).

  26. 1st time mom on June 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We got the BOB and LOVE it. It is light weight and easy to turn and run with. We got the car seat adapater and our 3 month old son loves jogging in it. He falls asleep each time. Great for every day use as well since it is so easy to handle.

  27. new mom on July 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I went back and forth on whether I needed a “jogging stroller” … now I just wish I had gotten the bob earlier! It is SOOO easy to maneuver – it turns on a dime and is very easy to push. It’s great that she is sitting “higher up” than in other strollers. I’ve taken my 7 month daughter on local walking trails (which are not paved) and she is completely comfortable in the bob! I don’t have to put it in my car (which seems like it could be hard) – but if are in a city or want to be able to walk right from home this is perfect. Agreed that the storage is small and a bit hard to get to. It does fold down nicely which makes it fit perfectly into my hall closet. You won’t be sorry if yhou get this stroller!

  28. First Time Mom on August 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I really love using this stroller. Totally worth the money. We bought the infant seat attachment and used it our 2nd day home from the hospital. My daughter loves the smooth ride and usually falls asleep in it every time.

    The only negative about this stroller is that it’s a total pain to get into the trunk of my car. It’s pretty heavy and doesn’t ‘catch’ when you close it, so it can actually start to unfold itself when you put it into the trunk. I’m 5’11” and in fairly good shape and it’s hard for me to load and unload from the trunk of my car. I think this might be a beast of a stroller for someone smaller than me.

  29. Ryan's Mom on August 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Great for walking and running! We have the infant car seat attachment and are thrilled with the product. Certainly worth the money!!!

  30. Surfing Mom on September 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The BOB seems to be the official stroller of Santa Monica as almost every other stroller on the street is the BOB revolution. So far I’ve only used it with the infant seat adaptor. After a ton of research we decided on the BOB because it seemed like it worked for everyday use, was easy to maneuver and would also allow us to jog with it (the smaller wheels of the “SUV” strollers didn’t seem sturdy enough to us for true jogging). Overall it’s a great stroller, but there are a few things I wish I had thought about previously:

    Pros:
    – Very easy to steer/Great wheels & suspension: The big cushy wheels and suspension make this easy to push and also absorbs bumps, curbs, and roots really well. I have no problem “off-roading” on this (e.g. going over lawns, steps, etc.)
    – Carseat adaptor: it’s great that we can snap our infant carseat onto it for now until our baby’s big enough to sit in the main seat (infant car seat adaptor is separate)

    Cons:
    – Very easy to steer: With only 1 wheel in the front it’s sometimes difficult to keep going straight. When my mom uses it, I’m always worried she’s going to run off the sidewalk. One-handed use in stores, etc. is also very difficult.
    – Long – I knew that this was a jogging stroller and longer/wider than regular strollers, but I didn’t think much of it before we started using it. While the length/width doesn’t matter much on jogging paths/sidewalks, it is surprisingly difficult to maneuver in stores and restaurants. Several times I’ve had to take roundabout routes in stores because the stroller wouldn’t fit through passages. I’m waiting for the day where I unknowingly knock something over in a store.
    – Huge – takes up our entire trunk.
    – Bottom storage access is very narrow – hard to get diaper bags, groceries or anything non-flat into the bottom.
    – No adjustable handrails: would be nice to adjust for different heights of pushers.

    We wanted to minimize the # of strollers so we decided to compromise on the BOB, but it is a compromise. In hindsight I would have first invested in a Snap/Go or Bugaboo-type convertible stroller first and then waited to see if I also needed a jogging stroller.

  31. new mom on November 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is easy to fold, rides smoothly and is very comfortable for my baby. The canopy comes out further than most and really blocks the sun.

  32. jeni on November 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller. It is so easy to maneuver. My husband and I both run and walk with it. My baby is 8 weeks old and we have been able to put her in it and feel safe about her head not bobbing around with the recline position. We also have the car seat adapter and just love it. It is just click and go. It folds down really easy and pops up in a cinch. I really could go on and on. If you are thinking about it, buy it. You will not be sorry. Yes..it is heavy, but that doesn’t bother me and I have a SUV for storage. Even my skeptical mother in law thinks it is great.

  33. Katie-Kate on November 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Fantastic Stroller. It’s a little bit on the heavy side especially getting it in and out of the car. The smooth ride and durability is fantastic. Make sure you purchase the carseat attachment if you have an infant. A must have for the beach.

  34. Patty on December 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’ve use these stroller since day 1. I love it. We bought the infant carrier bar and off we go. Very light, easy to steer, easy to collapse and put away.I’m a small person & I have no problem picking this stroller up to put in my truck. Has a great window in the shade to see your baby. Love it!!

  35. Anderson's Mom on December 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought one this fall & have found that it’s a great stroller! It folds down easily, a bit hard to move when folded (I’m only 5’1″) but it fits in my Audi A4 trunk better than my Chicco Cortina. My son loves taking a nap in this stroller! We recently have had lots of snow in MI & the stroller has pushed right thru it while we walked the dogs. The stroller is so easy to push one handed while walking with our dogs. My own complaint is that I didn’t buy this as the only stroller from the start. I would recommend getting the infant car seat adapter & using this from baby’s birth. Our other strollers don’t work nearly as well as the BOB! We’ll be buying a double when we have baby #2!

  36. Dad of W on December 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We needed a larger stroller for our toddler and this works great. Very easy to push/turn, the front wheel also locks to use as a jogger. What’s even better is how it collapses down very small. I don’t think it would be the best choice for a very young baby who can’t sit up yet as this has 3 wheels (probably 4 wheels would be more stable for an infant).

  37. NIKHOKIE on January 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I exchanged a Jeep stroller for this before my baby was born after reading the reviews…PEOPLE WEREN’T LYING! This stroller is awesome! Turns on a dime, comfortable for the baby, etc..the only thing is that it takes some practice to get used to tearing it down to put it in a trunk..also, I wanted to use this when my baby was 2 months old so I put a body insert from her other stroller in here…WORKED wonderfully.

  38. Chicago Burb Mom on January 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The best stroller ever! My husband and I can take this anywhere! We walk (weather permitting) everyday and it is the smoothest ride! You barely have to push it. My mother-in-law took her for a walk and with 5 other grandchildren, said this was the best stroller she has ever used! It folds easily and the child is very comfortable. The baby seat adaption thing works great and is very secure. If you can’t get it here, go to […] like I did. One thing….diaper bag will not fit underneath. I have a great Colombia one that I cross over me if I need to go to the mall so it is not a problem.

  39. Brandi on January 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The jogging stroller is one of the best out there. Fabric does not fade in the hot Arizona desert. Glides with one handed control. Suggest getting the handlebar console to maximize storage.

  40. GMa on January 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I left it in the box. It was a gift. […]

  41. Jen on March 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought the Bob after hearing about it from another mommy, and we couldn’t be happier. We still use the infant attachment at times (when he is in his car seat), and the rest of the time he rides like a big boy. It turns easily, moves smoothly, and is terrific!

  42. Patty on April 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It’s a bit pricey but you get what you paid for. I love this stroller. It’s so smooth and easy to manuver. I use it with the infant bar since my preemie son was 1 month old. Very well made and I love it. Only negative is the basket underneath is a bit small.

  43. stroller fanatic on April 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have personally owned 7 strollers, and used countless others. My job requires me to work closely with baby gear, so I have an extensive background in this area. I can honestly say that this stroller is by FAR the BEST! I have been using it for a solid year, and have loved every minute of it. I still get excited to use it! With my Bugaboo, that feeling wore off after a month or so…I did A LOT of research before buying this, and debated about it for a few months before. Ultimately, it was the best choice I’ve ever made, and I would buy it over and over again. My only regret is not getting it sooner. I was in the market for another stroller when my nearly 3 year old was outgrowing the 6 others that I had! Now that I have this, I feel it is the only one I need. I can’t believe that all those years, I had multiple strollers for multiple uses! This does it ALL. The fact that I can use this till 70lbs, then convert it using the “cargo carrier” for years more use, was a huge advantage. I debated between this, the Baby Jogger City Series(and a few other higher end all terrain strollers). Some of my favorite features of this one are; the fold, the sun canopy, the suspension system, the car seat compatibility, the front wheel that locks”backwards”, and the handle which is very comfy, and at the perfect height whether I am pushing or his 6’3 Daddy is!. It literally pushes like a dream. Nothing else compares. At almost 4 yrs old, 40lbs, and nearly 40in, my son has plenty of room and is very comfy. It is also effortless to push, even with his weight.(I used it for my 65lb Autistic nephew this summer, and it still provided the same amazing results!) I am 5’2, and very “out of shape” and I have yet to have any sort of difficulty getting it in/out of my 99 Camry. I’ve never had an issue using it indoors in stores, restaurants, etc. It’s been awesome on the beach. If you are still hesitant to buy, check out the store’s return policy first and go ahead and get it. You can usually return it if you aren’t satisfied. Though I can say I’d be shocked if you’d want to part with it after you’ve tried it! You will not be disappointed. I checked off “use for preemies”, to be specific, a preemie would need to be in a proper infant car seat, attached to the stroller. The seat is too wide, doesn’t offer adequate support for a preemie/newborn, but is PERFECT with the car seat attachment! I have had to contact the manufacturer once about a very minor thing, and their response time was amazing! All in all, I am 110% satisfied with this purchase. Have you ordered it yet?! What are you waiting for…

    This is a great jogging stroller. It’s easy to push, easy to turn, and my baby loves it. It is our only stroller, and though its size can be burdensome when indoors (ie. the mall), it still gets the job done because it is so easy to maneuver. It is a little difficult to get in and out of the car because of the size and weight. It is also difficult to get larger items into the basket under the seat because there are bars in the way. We got the infant seat bar so that we could use it with our newborn. Worth it if you don’t have another stroller for your newborn.

    I thought I had found the perfect stroller until I tried to use it on rolling terrain. There is no way to slow it down when descending hills…no hand break! It’s miserable being pulled down the slightest hill by your out of control stroller. I RETURNED IT AND I NEVER RETURN ANYTHING!

    This is a great stoller for running or just strolling around town. I use this to run 3 miles every morning, but it is also my everyday stroller. It is extremely easy to push and manuver with one hand. My only complaint is that it is kind of a “beast”. Getting it in and out of the car takes a little effort. However, i am 5’2 and I have no problem lifting it and I don’t feel the weight at all while running and pushing it. The sunshade is great…lots of coverage. My baby is completely shaded except for maybe a toe or two that she sticks out. I also put a receiving blanket under her because I found the fabric to be very rough under her head and under the back of her legs that hang over the footrest. She is only 3 months and technically I should be using the carseat adapter but she does just fine without it if I use the receiving blanket to protect her sensitive skin. You can also adjust the seat to lay back and my daughter falls asleep in it every time we go running. Overall this stroller is worth every penny!

    We love this stroller. We like to go on walks on a trail that can get a bit bumpy. The ride is much smoother than with our “regular” stroller, and it feels a lot lighter/easier to push. We also got the car seat adapter and began using it when our daughter was about 7 weeks old. The adapter is a little pricey, but we feel that it’s worth it. It comes with a tray that you can use with it after your child no longer needs the car seat. All in all, a great product that you can use for many years!

    I use this stroller for everything. I’ve tried all of the top strollers and this stroller is hands down the best! It’s easy to maneuver, even with one of your pinky fingers! Great sun coverage. It’s been through the sand in Santa Cruz, the snow in Tahoe, the mud at the rodeo and the stores at the mall! For extra comfort get the warm fuzzy, for newborns get the car seat attachment, for Moms and Dads get the cup holder/console. The bulkiness is nothing compared to all of the pros of this stroller. LOVE THIS STROLLER!

    My husband and I love this stroller. We initially bought a Bugaboo (which I also love) but the BOB stroller is ideal for running or even just going out for a walk. Our 9 month old daughter is on the smaller side and she fits in it perfectly. It absorbs bumps extremely well and the adjustable front wheel is a must have if you are going to use this for other occasions and not just running. I never write reviews but I feel so strongly about this stroller that I wanted to share my feedback.

    I bought this stroller for my daughter in California. After buying the adaptor so her Chicco carrier would fit, she has been taking her preemie son on a walk every day – and every day she calls me to tell me how much she loves the stroller.

    Our BOB stroller is great-looking and incredibly smooth-riding. We use our Chicco Keyfit 30 car seat with the Bob adapter bar so that our 6-week old can ride in it rear-facing. The seat fits fine although our baby boy is more reclined than when he is in the car (closer to lying flat on his back than at the 45 degree position) so I would not recommend going for extra-long walks without taking your little one out for a stretch. Also, the stroller is too big for our car trunk (we have a Toyota Scion) when fully assembled, but both rear wheels are removable with a simple snap, allowing us to transport the stroller in the trunk and then reassemble it with ease once we have reached our destination. We haven’t tried to jog with it yet (the baby is not old enough), but we are looking forward to doing so!

    We use this stroller for walks and jogging. It does well on all types of terrain and our son seems to like riding in it. It has a really smooth ride, even on the most uneven/bumpy surfaces. It is also really easy to steer with one hand. I can walk the dog and push the stroller by myself.
    The front wheel unlocks. This is a great feature if you want to use your jogging stroller for walks too. (The stroller is harder to steer with the front wheel locked.)
    The shade is great and I like that the seat reclines.
    The only drawback is that this stroller is bulky, but we use a smaller Maclaren stroller for errands, etc.
    All things considered, this is one of our best baby buys.
