We crowdsourced the reviews on this expensive piece of gear
This week, our Gear Guy welcomed his first child, which got us thinking about baby gear and, more specifically, strollers. So we scanned Amazon's bestseller list for the highest-rated models, then pulled the best, most authoritative reviews for each, all of which are listed below.
Thule Urban Glide ($400)
"This is an amazing running stroller. I have been doing triathlons for a little over five years and my wife and I just had our first child. The only way to maintain 15 hours a week of running, biking, and swimming is to take the little guy with me sometimes. This stroller delivers everything. It is easy to put together, intuitive to collapse and stow, very small, and lightweight. You can lock the front wheel or allow it to swivel. With the wheel unlocked, the stroller is easy to maneuver. On the other hand, the locking wheel is a must for a serious runner."
Graco FastAction Fold Jogger ($160)
"I run at least five miles a day and I love how smooth and easy to maneuver this stroller is. It has many of the same features as other popular running strollers but at half the price. My only complaint is that the handlebars are not adjustable."
Baby Trend Expedition Jogger ($150)
"I love this stroller. It rides smoothly and it is very lightweight. You can push it with one hand so your other hand is free to open doors. The two adult cup holders and key storage are so helpful. The downside: It takes up a lot of room in my trunk, even when it's folded up."
BOB Revolution Flex ($450)
"I love this stroller! If you want to hike or go to the park, this is a great stroller because it has a suspension system and rugged tires. They make it super easy to push and navigate. The only downside is that it takes two hands to fold so you have to put your baby down before folding."
Britax 2017 B-Agile ($269)
"My Britax B-35 Elite car seat easily clicks into this stroller making for a fast and easy transition from the car. I love that it opens and closes with the push of a button. I'm not a big fan of how low the under-seat storage is, as my feet usually kick against the bar when walking. It could also benefit from actual tires instead of plastic wheels. But for the city, this is a great, affordable option."
