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.

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.

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 :eek:

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/Mommy2sons/library/Chicco Activ3 Jogging Stroller

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/chicco-activ3-stroller-review-video/
