    Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    Or played with one in a store at least?

    I know it's apparently pretty new. But I can't find any B&M stores near me that carry it, at all. So if you've seen one in person, how was the push?

    Things that matter to me when choosing a stroller:

    -four wheels
    -decent sun canopy
    -bassinet/carrycot availability
    -decent cargo room
    -good all-terrain
    -good push
    -weight limit over 40 lbs.

    Things that don't matter:

    -fold
    -weight of stroller
    -doubles capability (possible plus but not at all necessary and in reality will probably never get used)
    -maneuverability (within reason- I don't need to turn on a dime, but a really really hard to maneuver one is out)
    -price
    -color (yeah, I like pretty colors, but I'm fine with black and/or red and/or grey if that's what comes on the stroller that is otherwise perfect for me.)

    The Verve so far is looking like it will meet all my needs really, really well (if I add the Peanut bassinet) BUT I am not sure how the push is. I live where we have HILLS and I intend to walk on them at least 3-4 days a week... I need to know what that push is like!

    If you have tried it, please tell me, how's the push? And if you haven't, but have strong google-fu, want to help me find it in-store anywhere in Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Clarita or Orange Counties? Or alternatively, find it at an online retailer with return shipping insurance available in case it doesn't work out for me (or in-store returns available and stores in my area?)
