Thanx for your help everybody!
I agree with those of you who talked about it beeing more ease to use and more stable to have the whole bar, instead of just handles. But these strollers have so much in them that I want in a stroller. I want it to hold out the wind and to have a foot cover so that it is possible to let a baby sleep in it (we have a lot of wind and quite some rain), and at the same time it has to be easily folded both for storage (we have so little space) and for the car. This one allmost folds to keep in the glove compartment! (And the price is the handles instead of the bar). My friend has the same brand, just older and just loves it, I do now have one (her old one actually) that has the bar, but the weels dont "turn", and it doesnÂ´t fold well, and the wind goes right through it and it has no foot cover...and I just hate it.
The only thing that conserns me is the size of the weels, and that they do turn. Strollers like that might not be perfect in all the icelandic conditions, i.e. snow, but we donÂ´t have a lot of that anyway in this courner of the country.
What I, and every mother in Iceland uses for the babies to sleep in outside (we let them sleep outside during the day) it what you see on the bottom of the page. ItÂ´s very nice to drive, but takes up so much space and takes the whole back of the car and is so hard to deal with, take apart etc. I hardly ever bothered to take it anywhere, I rather waited untill my son had his nap outside the house and then went for that wisit or whatever....I cant wait to get something thats easy to use...
We live only 10 min. walking distance from downtown, and take a lot of walks, but would also like to be able to take the stroller in the car without a lot of work and time, to use it elsewhere.
Jellybelly, how old is your son?
I was just wondering about the slings, I think my son is to old for that now, I used one sometimes last year, and that was great.
Now we have one of those hikers bags, and just love it. It made hiking this summer so easy!
