I use it on average of twice a day to walk my dog. It has seen rain, ice, and, most recently, tons of snow. It takes a bit of effort to get it through an unshoveled sidewalk, but it goes, and my daughter seems to even enjoy the rough ride --laughing and smiling as we go.
It also seems like it is made of solid materials and should have no problem lasting for the long haul.
I was giddy with delight when we took it out of the box and saw in person how clever this stroller is, and now, after using it for close to 8 months, I still can't believe how wonderful it is!
In terms of a comparison, I walk with a friend that has a bugaboo. There really is no comparison between these strollers, and my friend will be buying a Phil and Ted when she has another kid. I have no problem going over curbs, etc. while my friend tends to turn the stroller around. Can you imagine spending 800 on a stroller that you turn around to go over curbs?!?!?!
I highly recommend this stroller as a single, and can't wait to get to use it as a double. Well worth the money, and in the long run, I think it is the most economical way to go --if you plan on having kids close together in age.
This stroller is also not that heavy and it fits easily in my small Honda Civic's trunk--mind you, not much else will fit in the truck, but the stroller does.
After fretting for months over what stroller to buy, I can say that I have not once had any regrets about this purchase. Instead, I've just been delighted and pleased as punch to have such a wonderful stroller to push my little girl in every day.
Almost three years later, and this stroller is still going, and going, and going. We recently replaced a tire, and it's all starting to look a bit worn, but after daily walks, lugging two kids and tons of stuff around, it's in great shape and will last for as long as I need a stroller. I'm thinking it might make it through a third kid, but with a few more repairs.....
Back to the clever stuff: after my second child was born, I got the pleasure of putting him in the bassinet setting of the stroller, and placing my toddler on the front of the stroller with a jump seat! She loved it, and it was perfect for providing shade when at the Zoo, etc. Now that my oldest is 3.5, and my youngest is almost 2, they are always fighting over who gets to sit in the jump seat.
This is a smart purchase. and my friend with the bugaboo? She ended up buying one of these! and She loves it!
If you know you will be having kids close together in age, get this stroller.
Updated again, three years later! Third kid will be 2 soon, and it's still the only stroller I use! Amazingly, this thing is still in one piece! one of the buttons to unfold it broke off, but I can still open it. I needed to buy another new tire, but other than that, I still love this stroller!
First off, it was super easy to assemble right out of the box. No tools needed, but the tires are flat so you will need an air pump.
I am expecting my second child in a few months so we are not currently using it as a double, but I put my son in the doubles seat and pushed him around the house and he didn't seem to mind the "back seat". He is 14 months, weighs 20 lbs. and it did not tip at all with no child in the big seat.
I also bought the Regal Graco car seat adapter and tried it out with my Graco Safeseat. The car seat fits great without reclining the seat, so I am planning on using the doubles kit with the car seat adapter (even though Phil&Ted's does not recommend this).
Folds really easily (MUCH smaller than my Teutonia).
I bought the Jolly Jumper stroller caddy to use as cup holders. It fits on their great, but cups without a lid would spill when you have to tilt the handle bar to put in the brake position.
I also purchased the Phil&Ted's universal food tray, which attaches the the bumper bar. It is a great place to put my son's snacks. It is easy to attach and folds flat, so I you could store it in the pocket on the back of the seat.
Dash vs. Sport - extra padded seats, plastic footwell, handle bar brake, and storage pocket on the back of main seat
SUNSHADE!!!! The sunshade on the main seat is terrible. It barely provides any protection and either has to be snapped on in full sunshade mode (like in the picture) or unsnapped and not used at all...no inbetween. I did buy a kiddopatumus sunshade thing, but feel like it is a pain to attach all the time and blows up in the wind.
We haven't started using the doubles seat, but there is NO sunshade at all.
Steering- my stroller seems to always pull one way or the other. It is actually a work out trying to keep it straight.
I find the handle bar to be a little too thick. I am petite and my hands get sore from gripping it after a long walk (this was never a problem on my Teutonia).
Last- I find that I really do miss the option of being able to turn the seat rear facing. I could do this on my old stroller and thought my son had outgrown liking that, but I miss the option.
I love the tandem double idea and Phil & Ted's really is the the size/weight of a single jogger, but you have to sacrifice for a lot of negatives.
Edit: I found that the canopy off of the Especially for Kids Umbrella stroller sold at Babies R Us/TRU for $19.99 clips on to the frame of the stoller and doubles seat. This has solved the issues of lack of sun canopy on the rear seat and poor sun shade on the main seat. See my pics!
Since sized definitely matters with passengers and pushers... I am 5'9", my husband is 6', 2yr old is ~35lbs, 12 mo old is ~26lbs. Neither my husband nor I have had any problems/discomfort in pushing this stroller. Both kids love riding in it and neither mind sitting in the back. (Yes, the 2 yr old is over the wt limit for the back seat, but still rides in it when we are at the zoo or someplace where she will just be in and out. We've not had any problems with this so far.)
I'm shocked to see that people are complaining about the size and the folding difficulty. This thing is TINY for a double stroller!!! I can whiz around the zoo, museums, the tight and narrows spaces btwn racks in the mall. I see parents struggling with their double wide strollers; trying to squeeze in tight spaces and I'm so thankful for my super skinny stroller! As for folding, super easy!! I have no problems folding or unfolding it. It takes up less space when folded than our previous single jogging stroller. It doesn't require very much storage space in the garage and there is plenty of room for it in the back of our HHR (even room of it and the groceries!).
It pushes like a dream! I can easily push it with one hand. The fact that the front wheel can be switched from swivel to fixed is awesome! We've used it on trails in the fixed position and it did great. The swivel wheel is, of course, much easier for malls, zoos... anywhere where there will be a lot of turns. The double we had prior to this was a graco inline (one of those long trains...). The Dash pushes so much easier and is easier to get in and out of tight spaces.
Perhaps only other moms/dads with a very young toddler and an infant will get this, but it's huge... My 2 yr old still needs help getting on the potty and the baby can't exactly be left outside the bathroom stall alone, so going to the restroom in public is a major undertaking. This stroller will fit in the handicap stall with the door CLOSED, NOT touching the toilet AND we have room to move around still! Anyone who has tried to deal with 2 little ones alone in a restroom will know that this is HUGE. Try that with another double stroller, I dare you. ;)
I've also used this stroller for jogging and it has worked wonderfully. I am super slow though. I'm sure that it wouldn't work very well for a fast, hard core runner, but it has been great for light running. We've done up to 3 miles in it.
Down hill... Okay, so I live in central Indiana. There aren't any really hills here, only slight inclines. =) I do some times find myself kicking the bottom of the back seat when we are going down hill. I kicked it a lot when I first got it, but apparently I've adjusted the way I walk/push the stroller, bc I rarely kick it anymore. It would be heavenly if the handle bar telescoped out a bit, that would solve the issue. When I first got the stroller I wanted to take it to a bike shop to find a way to extend the handle, but it doesn't bother me anymore.
I can not tell you how much I love this stroller! We use it A LOT! We've had it for about 6 months now. Before, we had a jogging stroller and an umbrella stroller. This one is so functional and takes up so little space, it's the only stroller we ever use. It was worth the penny pinching and other things we had to give up in order to buy it!
Now on to why I don't like this stroller. I own a single BOB Stroller Strides and will use that as a comparison. The Phil and Ted stroller does NOT handle well; it's difficult to push/steer and alway feels like it's pulling to one side or the other ...especially going down and coming up hills. The brake system (two buttons pushed simulaneously and folding handle downward) is awkward to engage, and I can never do it without pinching my hands. The handle bar is not adjustable and WAY too short...even without the doubles kit rear attachment. I am 5'8" and my arms get really tired and shins hit the rear seat when it is in place. When I placed our infant in the front seat and used the doubles kit on top, our 2 year old daughter was always hitting her head on the sunshade. When we place our daughter in the rear seat, we exercise GREAT caution when going downhill because the front wheel is prone to lifting due to her weight (she is about 30lbs and our son is around 20 lbs).
I intend to sell this stroller and purchase a side by side jogger. I would NEVER recommend this stroller to anyone. The reason I'm giving it a two star rating instead of a one is becuase the seat recline for an infant is nice, and I do like the seatbelt harness system.
