Summary: I'M A BIG FAN OF THIS STROLLER! IT MEETS ALL MY NEEDS- I THINK IT IS VERY COMPACT FOR A JOGGING STROLLER. THE STEERING IS FANTASTIC AND THE LIGHT WEIGHT NEVER STRAINS MY BACK WHEN LOADING AND UNLOADING. I TOO HAD TO PURCHASE A DRINK HOLDER ACCESSORY. I PICKED THIS ONE THINKING OF OUR FUTURE WITH THE TODDLER SEAT WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION FOR THE NEXT ONE IN LINE. 9 MONTHS LATER I'M NOW BUYING THE TODDLER SEAT IN ANTICIPATION OF #2 IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this stroller, along with the toddler seat, when we had our second child. This has been the absolute best baby gear purchase we have ever made! Our children are ages 3 and 2 months, but our oldest still likes to/needs to ride in the stroller when we're out and about, and we liked the fact that the toddler seat can be attached when we need it and removed when we don't.
Summary: I bought this stroller when I had a two year old and an infant. After nearly a month of comparing strollers I bought my Valco stroller. It was perfect for us. We used it steady every weekend on long walks and short walks to school during the week for two years, no problems ever. I used the rain covers during the winter, and children stayed dry.
Summary: Pretty good but not ideal from Vancouver, WA– This works pretty well. My biggest complaint is that when using it with our Chicco carseat (Valco website says this is the model to use with Chicco) the hood on the stroller actually does not meet up with the hood on the carseat. So there is a pretty significant gap between the two allowing sunlight to shine in baby's face.
Summary: We've had this stroller for over a year already, and it serves us well. I especially like that it provides a lot of air flow inside of the stroller and the child doesn't get that hot, which is important since we live in hot climate (CA). The only thing that got worn out by now is a flap upfront, that goes under child's feet, I guess, our kid kicked it too much, so it got cracks in plastic...
Summary: WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! from SW Suburbs Chicago I love this product! It pushes EASY, it is easy to unfold and set up. My kids love this stroller. I love the extended canopies. The buckles for the harnesses are a pain because they are hard to get sometimes, but they are also great because my almost 3yo son CAN'T get out of it.
Summary: Extremely disappointed by the "storage" basket if you can call it "storage"?? There is no way one can fit anything in there, not to mention get anything out of the storage if you managed to squeeze it in..it is useless, so be prepared to carry all the bags on your shoulders or by hand. Our stroller has been gently used only a few times and already noticed a few holes and tears at the back and bottom of the stroller. Fabric not very durable.
Summary: I bought this stroller this summer when I found myself with 3 little ones. a 1, 3, and a 4 year old. We were going on a lot of walks and the older boys, not normally stroller bound, simply couldn't keep up either walking or on little bikes. We searched for a stroller that could accommodate their size and decided on the valco with the extra seat up front for the 1 year old. I absolutely love this stroller.
Summary: I LOVE this stroller. We bought this for our twins and used it while we lived in Europe. Great for cobblestone streets and bumpy roads. After 2 years, it is still a great stroller. Couple of points to consider...1. It is one of the skinniest side-by-side strollers, so 9 times out of 10 you will fit through doorways. 2. Very durable and sturdy.
