I only had a capsule, not a travel system, but I WISH I had had one!! There were LOADS of times when it would have been good to have a pram to clip the capsule into, especially going to the shops. It wasn't so bad if we were going to peoples houses, but more often than not it was a shopping trip and it was a major pain to actually have to carry the capsule.
I used a travel system for my last 2 bubs and swear by it. We used the BJCS and unity capsule for number 3 which was a bit tricky so with baby 4 I used the maxi cosi capsule. It was so light weight and easy to clip in. Made life so much easier when you're on the run!
I have the Safety 1st capsule too - purchased because of having highest CREP rating and very light.
I have a Bugaboo and it connects up with Maxi Cosi adaptors. Once bub outgrows capsule, then my Bugaboo has a bassinet and toddler seat too.
We have the strider plus with capsule to. We love it. So good to transfer sleeping baby from car to pram and even bring inside so they can finish their nap.
Also I often used to bring the capsule inside and rock baby to sleep before hoping in the car - yep, it's a rocker to!!!
Best investment we made!
Worth every cent! I'm using my sisters Steelcraft agile with capsule insert for bub 3 and I wish I'd had it for all mine. It is so handy for nipping into the shops etc when bub is asleep. She's still in it at 4 months. The agile pram itself is awesome. It's light, easy to steer, easy to fold and fits through checkouts.
