    I love mine. VERY easy to push.

    You need to be careful with the stability though ( a toddler pulling on it could tip it if you aren't holding on too ) and take a pump with you wherever you go.

    It's worth it for me as we traipse through woods and over fields every day and it copes very well with that sort of terrain.

    I didn't like mine & only kept it for about 6 months.

    It was very comfortable for the children, but mine kept veering off to one side as I was pushing it & I had to keep dragging it back in line. I have on sharp, sloping corner to go round near school & the pushchair very nearly tipped over there.

    I also tried it with a buggy pod on...disaster!

    But, the person I sold it to loves it & I seem to be in the minority of people who don't like it.

    Sorry I dont like mine either - its constant veering off to the side ,instability , bulkiness ( in and out of the car) are the worst points - the front hood drives me mad , always needs refixing whenever the pushchair has been folded.

    Having said all that the children seems perfectly comfortable , imo much happier than in the back of a p&t for example and the main reason I still have it - it fits through my front door! - this is a must for me if babies fall asleep on the school run.

    If I had wider doors it would be replaced with a nipper 360 immediately!!

    I love mine . Ive had many doubles and this one is by far the best.

    Lightweight and easy to push, big seats and large basket and fits through doors easily. Doesnt fit in my boot of car but that doesnt bother me as we walk everywhere anyway
