We're buying the Strider Plus, and although I can't give any first-hand feedback, I know a lot of mums say they're too heavy/bulky etc. In my opinion, the baby is going to get heavier anyway and will still be picked up - more than the pram anyway! I will say though I think Steelcraft (the makers of the Strider) are marketing to the wrong crowd - you can see in the paperwork for the Strider some skinny woman in high heels and glamourous clothes surrounded by high-rise buildings, and from the women I've spoken to who live in the city, they prefer something more compact (commonly talk of the mountain buggy, which I'm not impressed with).
But for where we live, out rural ways the Strider is perfect: it has solid tyres for when you're on crappy roads or in paddocks; there is heaps of cover for bubs (where other prams don't have nearly enough); it comes with all the covers (boot, mosquito, rain); the handle height is adjustable (great for the difference in height between hubby and I)... The list just goes on! Plus, I love that I can get it in a 4-wheeler and that it still turns on a dime. My SIL bought a 3-wheeler pram and couldn't stop raving about how easy it was to drive - until she was in a tight spot somewhere or on carpet, then it all went to sh** LOL. She's pregnant now with twins and is looking at the Strider, as is a friend of mine who is also pregnant with twins. We see LOTS of Striders out here!
Sorry if this was a bit long (especially since I said I had no first-hand experience yet - well, except for what you get when you're in the store wink ) but I'll be watching this thread to see what others say! It'd be nice to hear some positives for a change!
Oh and I forgot to mention roll eyes the other reason we like the Strider is that the weight capacity is up to 20kg, so we won't have to buy another pram for a while yet!
