    Mountain buggy. We have the duet and it's great on dirt and gravel roads. I assume the single is just as good

    hi , i dont know names or brands, but certainly get one with large wheels. we had a small stroller for a short visit to a country town, and the darn thing nearly fell apart in six weeks. marie.

    We've got an old Valco Runabout 2 Trimode, with chunky, grippy wheels. It is the best walking pram i've ever used! I picked it up 2nd hand on eBay for $50, it's our best baby purchase, and has been used with our three kids no worries. Great for walking on gravel, hills etc, and isn't very heavy at all.
    We've also got a Phil and Teds sport, which is great too, though not as easy to push as the Valco.

    I've also got a valco runabout trimode and it's good. Never had any issues. Its bloody heavy and freaking enormous though so it stays at home and I've got a more compact pram for going in to town.

    We have an old Beema Q which is fabulous for all terrain.

    It's great for long walks and handles bumpy roads with ease. DS is very comfortable in it too.
