    Default Pram Help

    I'm trying to decide which pram to buy. The 4 options are

    Silver Cross Wayfarer
    Strider Plus 4
    Strider Compact
    Baby Jogger City Select

    The pram must be 4 wheels, light (under 13 kg), reversible and if it can accommodate another seat would be great.

    Any advice would be fantastic.

    Strider plus is heavy. I got sick of lugging mine in and out of the boot of the car. When DS2 was born I ended up selling mine and getting a side by side pram instead. It's surprisingly lighter and easier to fold than the strider! So maybe cross that one off your list...

    I have the strider compact and so far I love it.
    We've just started using the big seat more now as before bub was still in the capsule which attched to the pram.
    She loves the big seat, plenty of room for her and nice and cosy.
    I also love the amount of basket space it has.
    We have the second seat for it too for when the second bub comes along.

    I've got the compact and love it, a girlfriend got the plus and has already gotten rid it. It was too heavy and the rear wheel base was too wide.
    I can recommend the compact.

    I had a baby jogger city select and sold it then got the strider compact. Much prefer the quality of the select over compact. So much so that I just went and ordered a new select in the new colour today

    City select hands down. I bought a strider 4 - heavy and difficult to steer. I sold it and got the bjcs - so so much better, I love it!

    I have the city select and love it. I'd doubt it's under 13 kg though.

    Is this your 1st bub?

    If so and you are planning ti have more than 1 bub, the city select is great in double mode.

    I had a peg perego that I sold so that I could buy the city select + extra seat to get both kids to sit & sleep.

    I looked at the compact too, but it had loads of the same things that the strider had that I didn't like such as wheels and crappy suspension etc. Still felt like the quality was nothing compared to the bjcs.

    I know it is not one of your four options but we were planning to get a Strider but ended up getting the Bebecare Reverse due to it being lighter. Our DD is now 16 months and it has been great. We loved that the seat converted from bassinet to seat mode meaning that you didnt have to buy the separate bassinet.


    DH + Me + DD (born 11/10/12) = our little family :-)
