    Chicco Activ3 Jogging Stroller

    Anyone have this or tried it out?

    I was considering the Baby Jogger City Mini GT, but now I'm wondering about this one since it can actually be used as a jogger. Correct me if I am wrong, but the BJCM GT is more of a walking stroller than used for jogging right?

    I'm looking for a high weight capacity all terrain stroller that will work decently on sidewalks, grassy parks, gravel/dirt trails, and hills. I won't be using it in any extremely off road situations though. I would also like to be able to use it indoors sometimes such as the mall or museum, so I would prefer it be at least more toward the compact end of the 3 wheel strollers spectrum.

    Thoughts?

    I saw one the other day and while it looks nice - it is huge.
    I have a BJCM and have had it on sidewalks, the beach and grass with zero issues at all - if I were you I would just get the GT as it would be more than adequate for what you are describing, not to mention the fold is amazing and compact.

    The wheels are kind of small, even if they are air filled, I don't think it would be very good for jogging. Very bumpy for the kid.

    If you want a fairly compact all-terrain with high weight capacity, you can also see if you can find an Easywalker Qtro... I love mine.

    I would also look at the Valco TriMode.

    Re: Chicco Activ3 Jogging Stroller

    Well, I went ahead and took a chance and bought the Chicco ($224 with Babies R Us trade-in deal). As much as I like the idea of one of the higher-end strollers (especially the Valco TriMode that Ketchupqueen recommended!), I just can't justify the price right now.

    I only need it for moderate use for one child for probably 2 years max, so I can't use the reasoning that the price will be an investment for years to come or multiple children. Plus, I've never used one of the higher-end ones outside of the store, so I won't really know what I'm missing out on! On top of the fact that I've recently purchased a Performance Sport, and I have a new Performance Booster and Parkway sitting here waiting for me to decide which one I'm keeping! My husband might have a cow if I spent so much on a stroller right now

    Anyway, here's a link to some side by side pics of the Chicco with the Baby Jogger City Mini GT (since that's the other one I was considering when I went to the store the first time). http://s1147.photobucket.com/user/Mo...ing%20Stroller

    And here's the link to the Baby Gizmo video of it, if anyone else is checking into it. http://blog.babygizmo.com/2013/11/ch...-review-video/
