Summary: Has some good features but the bad one do outway the good. The dodgy break is one of the biggest problems and can be dangerous. This pram/pushchair isn't worth it's money but is great if you a city mum.
Pros: Quite light and can fit in most boots. Looks very nice. Quick and easy to fold. Can get the whole range to match. Small so great for shopping.
Cons: The break doesn't always stay on, it can flick off. The stickers came off after a couple uses. You can feel the chasis if you press on the pram which must be very uncomfortable for baby so we had to get a sheepskin liner. The pram and pushchair is difficult to attach toys to. Hood can make the pram bulky when folded down. We went with the linear design which was suede so difficult to clean. The pram is hard to push on any terrain other than a smooth surface.
Summary: All in all a very good pram to start of with as its lovely to push light weight untill baby gets heavy.I would use it again for my next baby as i used the pram untill baby was 8/9 months old car seat lasted up to baby was almost 18 months old so very worth the money for that.
Pros: It was very easy to put up and clip the car seat on it and putting it in pram mode and once baby gets older to change it in to face forward mode too very light weight and very good if you use buses and trains as its small to fit in small places. folds up small to fit nicely in a small boot of a car.
Cons: Car seat makes pram very heavy and rain cover don't fit over the pram when the car seat is on it had to go and get a car seat rain cover to use when on pram.
Good in pramette mode, but once in pushchair mode became increasingly clunky and cumbersome

Summary: I wouldn't buy it again as it didn't serve the purpose I expected which was from birth until toddler. I ended up getting rid of mine with my daughter was 9 months old in favour of a far nippier M&P Pulse. For what it costs, I'd have prefered to have gotten a conventional 3 in 1 system, or a from birth stroller.
Pros: Parent facing pram mode. Umbrella fold. Seat attached to chassis so no need to remove. Easy to fold up, and store. Space saving. Decent sized basket. Large choice of colours
Cons: Hard to push one handed. In pushchair mode it was heavy and hard to manovere. Rain cover annoying as it zipped on so was time consuming. Primo Viaggo car seat that compliments to make a travel system is very heavy and upright so baby's head tipped forwards all the time.
Smart, compact for smaller cars, lovely travel system.

Summary: Was pleased with this pushchair, and will certainly have more use now my Son is more interested in looking round than looking at Mummy! I can fit it in the boot of my yaris and it is easy to maneouvere and has been very versatile.
Pros: Folds small enough to fit a Yaris's Boot! Easy to change from pushchair to pramette. Stores standing up as long as the wheels are locked great is space is limited. Good deep hood for shade and cover against the weather. Easy to turn! When car seat on frame the raincover covers all the pushchair still. Has a full recline for when Baby is sleeping in pushchair mode.
Cons: Forward facing pushchair when out of the pramette and car seat which I only realised after the report about parent facing is best came out. Could be so much better if in pramette mode the apron/cover flap had something to atatch to either side of the hood to provide shade when baby is lying down - simple hook and button would do. Can be a little heavy to push. Harness straps have nothing to hold them to the back of the seat, so you have to dig underneath Little Ones B...
Great for public transport, quite comfortable for a newborn, but a carseat is not perfect.

Summary: It was my first choice when my baby was born and I was more than happy to use it as a pram (baby facing me) or with a carseat attached (it was easier for me to take the pushchair downstairs first and then the baby in the carseat). Then I noticed that when I drive, my baby's head is hanging instead of lying on the head support. I was terrified with it and bought another carseat. I am quite tall, and the handles were too low for me (even when extended).
Pros: -It is quite light (9kg), so it it perfect instead of a pushchair with seperate cot -the carseat is easy to put on, and baby is comfortable when useing it on the pushchair -the hood is huge, so covers the baby from the sun and rain -the shopping basket can take up to 15 kg (tested with 15 cartons of orange juice) -great quality materials, never fade, are rainproof -it is narrow enough to get on the bus and squeeze between people and other pushchairs -baby lies really ...
Cons: -when baby gets older, it suddenly seems to be hard to pick up the stairs and push -handles are maximum 102 cm, which is too low for somebody 170 high -baby's head is not in correct position when the carseat is in the car, it is too high and falls down sometimes -it is almost impossible to fold it down with one hand, but easy when you can use both hands and bend (not possible with the baby in your arms, not great if you travel alone on the plane, train) -it is easy to...
If you want to buy ONE buggy to last from birth to 4 years old - buy this one.

Summary: Great all-rounder if you only want to purchase one pushchair.
Pros: Baby can face you from birth, umbrella folding, multi-position seat, freedom-to-move harness (Mamas & Papas design), toddler step on the back for older siblings (only works when pushchair seat is upright).
Cons: Not all-terrain, seat does not lay completely flat so surface in pramette mode slopes upwards where baby's feet go, newer style baskets are surceptable to holes, I think they are over-priced, cant steer one handed.
