View Full Version : Stroller for powerwalking suggestion
05-02-2004, 11:02 PM
Hi all - I am going to try a different approach to my needing-advice post. I am trying to find a jogging stroller for just powerwalking around the neighborhood. I do not intend to jog with it and therefore just want a small size stroller that's light. The Mac 3 seems to be the right size but can't seem to find opinions on it. Also saw pics of Zoopers but have never seen in real life. I also saw a Bob Stroller that seems really great as well Kelty, Mountain Buggy (way too big), InStep (just didn't appeal to me). Does anyone have any advice? Marilyn at arunningstroller.com suggested a baby jogger but they look enormous (esp the wheels) and again, more than I need.
Thanks for any suggestions.

The Mac 3 is terrible in my opinion. I had it and loved it until it fell apart...after just a few months. Serious quality issues. And overall bad Maclaren customer service. I was glad to see it go...It is not worth $300. There is a whole series of Mac 3 complaints just from me on this board if you do a search.
For walking over jogging try:
The Baby Jogger Twinkle with the 12 inch wheels
The Baby Trend Jogger
Zoopers- are specifically designed for walking and are awesome. I love my Sport.
Kelty and BOB and the Baby Jogger with the 20 inch wheels are overkill for walking.

Katy - thanks for your reply, very helpful. I agree that the 20 inch wheels are more than I want. I am still thinking about a Bob stroller b/c it has 16 inch wheels and maybe my husband will pick up jogging again? Heck, maybe I will but for now, walking for me. Anyway, are 16 inch wheels overkill in your opinion?
