All Terrain Stroller Buying Guide
It’s usually hard to choose what you buy when it’s something important. That’s why it’s often harder to choose what to buy when it comes to your baby. You only want the best for your kids and you often feel clueless on what to buy for them in terms of the quality of one product over another. Well, when it comes to buying an all terrain stroller, here are the consumer’s choices on all terrain stroller models to give you a good idea on what all terrain stroller to buy.
BOB Revolution SE
BOB Revolution SE has high-impact wheels and ultra-padded reclining for more comfort and less impact when passing rough terrains or for a smoother travel for those who love to go for a run with their babies. Its five-point harness buckle system is also a safety measure due to the research that older toddlers can easily unbuckle one or two harnesses. It also has rotating front wheels making it really easy to push. Some even claim you can move it around with only one finger when in a flat ground.
More importantly though, aside from an easier and smoother drive the rotating front wheels are also for a safer travel should you need to change course fast to avoid obstacles or crashing with other strollers or vehicles. Since rotating front wheels become a disadvantage with an unsteady ground, BOB Revolution SE also includes a changeable suspension system which allows you to lock the front wheels when you need it to be steady through a rough terrain. Parking brakes and a handle wrist strap are also installed for additional safety precautions.
BOB Revolution SE only weighs 25 lbs. and therefore is handy when you need to carry it anywhere. Its two-step folding process makes it faster and easier to set up and keep. It has a 41.6 x 25.4 x 40 inches dimension – wide enough for your child to be comfortable during the walk. Its adjustable canopy is very useful, making it comfortable enough for your child to sleep when it’s down and enjoyable to watch the surroundings when it’s up. It’s also an additional safety feature – for the sun, wind, dust, etc.
It has an extra storage space on the back of the seat, undercarriage, and additional internal pockets so you won’t have any problems carrying essential things that you and your kid needs. It can also carry up to 70 lbs. so making it carry extra clothes and drinks is not a problem. Additionally, it also comes with improved car seat and snack tray adapter which makes attaching easier. Lastly, its fabric is also easy to clean so your child won’t have to be bothered by dusts from previous walks.
The simplest thing that people don’t like with this product is that it doesn’t stand when folded. More serious issues are that it is really expensive and accessories cost you extra. There’s also a standing issue about the possibility of stroller to be tipped over when the parent using the hand wrist strap trips and the stroller goes with him/her. This issue came up since this stroller is promoted for parents who love jogging with their babies. Lastly, BOB Revolution SE can also recline up to 70 degrees making it not so comfortable for a few months old baby so it’s recommended to wait until the baby is eight months old before using this stroller.
BOB Revolution SE Duallie Stroller
BOB Revolution SE Duallie has the same features as BOB Revolution SE but is re-engineered for the comfort and safety of two kids. Even if it can carry two kids by having two seats side by side, it’s still designed to be small enough to fit through most doorways being only 30 inches wide. Each seat can be reclined independently and can have their canopies adjusted separately.
Jeep Liberty Limited Stroller
The Jeep Liberty Limited is also installed with a foot operated parking brake and a five-point harness buckle system.
The Jeep Liberty Limited is durable with its steel frame. Its shock absorbing ability was rated excellent after going through testing but a lot of strollers are better in this factor. Its seat can also be reclined. It can be folded the easiest and fastest with its one-handed folding system and, unlike BOB Revolution SE, it can actually stand when folded. It has a large storage basket where you can put more things and has two additional side cargo bags which is actually removable. It also has a wide enough canopy to protect your child against the sunlight and the wind.
The Jeep Liberty Limited includes a lot of accessories with it that needs to be bought separately with other strollers. It has a child snack track and also a parent tray for additional parent-child bonding. It also comes with a toy steering wheel to entertain the kids while on the ride. An MP3 sound system is also included which is rare on strollers. This can actually help you with making the baby sleep. It is compatible with 15 car seats which is a great advantage over many strollers with limited car seat compatibility. This gives a more comfortable ride to both the parent and the infant who can’t seat in a car seat yet. It is also wide enough for older kids especially because it can weigh up to 50 pounds.
Some users claim that this all terrain stroller is harder to recline the seats than with other strollers and it can’t be reclined fully for young infants. It’s recommend for babies to be at least six months old before using this stroller. The canopy is not adjustable so the kid will just have to deal with the same line of sight the whole ride. The stroller’s handle is also not adjustable making it a bit hard for tall parents to walk with their kids. It’s also too heavy for some with its 30 pounds weight. Its ability to stand when folded also comes with the disadvantage that it’s still too big it can’t fit some of the users’ trunks.
