Advantages: easy to use, sturdy, comfy pushchair, great accessories, good offroad
Disadvantages: unstable when toddler on top
we chose this pushchair for my 2 year old and new baby, mainly as we could use it as a single pushchair once the toddler was more confident with walking.
We used it for a while with the toddler seat ontop, so baby could lie flat on the main seat, it did make the pushchair fairly unstable and hard to steer. On pavements that sloped towards the road it felt like it was trying to escape, but my toddler loved being in that seat as she was closer to eye level with passers by. Set up in this way the baby seat is completely enclosed, it meant that she was spared prodding fingers from kiddies at nursery and old ladies at the supermarket and could sleep in peace.
Now they're both a bit bigger we have the second seat underneath, as in the picture, it is much more stable, as stable as an ordinary pushchair. We generally put the baby in the underneath seat unless she's tired, and I attach toys to the back of the main seat. She seems really happy down there.
It is long for a single pushchair, but the front wheel turns fully so it's easy to move about and it's only as wide as our previous single pushchair (Loola) so gets in and out of most doorways without any problems. While it is long, it does fit in the buggy gap on the bus.
The raincover is quick and easy to fit, all velcro, no fiddly zips in the rain! The brake is good and sturdy, tolerates my bouncing now nearly 3 year old. Folds up well, various bits can come off to make it smaller for smaller boots too, the acessories are great, handy to have a hand pump with it, and having 3 wheels means that it is really good off road for walks through the woods and such.
Summary: fantastic durable pushchair with great features
