Summary: Great stroller, but... from Montreal This is a great stroller hovewer, here are a few things to be aware of: contrary to what it says on the website, it does not fold and stand. Also, the Graco Snugride 35 doesn't fit between the frame -even with the proper adaptor, sold separatly-. Finally, the seat isn't very deep, so I doubt it will fit for a 6 year-old child. The tyre pump doesn't come with it either and that's something you will need.
Summary: This is a top quality, durable, light and very compact buggy/pushchair. Everything is first class and easy to use. The only reasons it's not perfect is that the carrycot is smaller than other models (which is also a benefit), so will last to 3/4 months and the pushchair only faces outward. This isn't a problem as the baby gets bigger, but it felt like a big transition from carry cot to the pram at 3.5 months. Rain and shade covers so well made and easy to use.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Good Value, Lightweight, Quality Construction
" Great when it works, but too many maintenance issues… "
17 January 2013
Excerpt: We got the Swift because it steered like a dream in the shop, and it hasn't disappointed us in this respect. However, it's had a number of maintenance problems in the first few weeks, which is not what you need when you're looking after a newbown baby for the first time. It arrived with a faulty inner tube on the front wheel. This had a leaky inner seam, so it was clearly a manufacturing defect.
Good Solid Rugged Pram/Stroller/Pusher Suitable for newborns

Summary: This is a good solid stroller/pram. The seat can be lowered so a new-born can be carried in it. Also has a fairly small foot-print, unlike some of the huge pusher you can get that resemble a 4WD. It's still being made, so getting accessories for it is possible. We also got a padded insert to hold our tiny baby's head snugly.
Good allrounder, but sort of wishing I got an urban for walking/running.

Summary: not as good at my old mountain buggy urban. I thought it would be more compact, but the frount wheel sticks out when folded. Would not be great for a small car. My baby seems to like it though. More padded and more comfortable than our old stroller. Good access to the storage underneath.
