Equuleus

It was important for us to get a compact pram, as we drive around in a 2 door car.  This fits into the boot and is light enough for me to carry in and out of the boot.  It folds down with a twist of a knob and lifting a lever, but it does require 2 hands.

The turning circle of the pram is fantastic, and I can usually do a 180 one-handed even in tight spaces, like a hallway.  I have also managed to wheel the pram up and down kerbs one-handed (my other arm has a parcel just collected from the post office).

I used this from birth and bubs is now almost 11 months.  This is the only pram I have, and I go out with it almost every day.  The tyre treads are a bit worn but that is to be expected with the mileage I have gotten from it.

It would be nice if the basket at the bottom was larger.  We also have had items fall out of the basket as one end of it is secured by strips of Velcro which can come undone from time to time.  I just normally check that it's secure before I head off and that's sorted the problem of things falling out.

The pram came with a rain hood which zips to the hood, and the hood also has an extendable section which can be unzipped to extend the hood for when the sun is low and gets in bubs' eyes.

Thr baby attachment also has a hood, so if using this in conjunction with the pram hood, the baby can be enclosed and sleep without distractions. My bub spent a lot of time sleeping in the pram in the first few months, so I presume it was comfortable.

There is a mesh pocket for mobiles, which is good so you can see if someone is ringing as I had my phone on silent while bub is sleeping.  There is also a generous pocket which which can fit letters, wallets, keys, mitts, hat of baby.

In all it was good value for money, and I am happy with the purchase.
