BOB Alterrain Pro Jogging Stroller Review
I’m so excited to talk to you about this awesome stroller. This was extremely easy to put together and I’m not just saying that because I’m a pro when it comes to putting strollers together. It only took a little more than 5 min but, if you’ve never touched a stroller before, it should take you no more than 10 – 15 min. There are four different color options — black, blue, lunar, and green-we have the black to review. There is a large storage basket underneath the stroller which you can store your water, cell phone, keys, etc. I really liked the 5 pt harness because, if we go on a walk or jog on trails that are bumpy, we know the baby is secure. The stroller also has a 9-position handlebar which I absolutely loved. Since I’m a shorter person, I liked that this had such low options for my hands. Most strollers don’t go that low so my hands always feel strained. Whatever your hand position is, you can easily access the hand break. The handle bar also has a wrist strap that you can put your hand through to make sure you have full control while running. When walking, the stroller was very smooth and easy to maneuver. You can close it easily, just a turn and a pull can close it. It also has a clip on the side that locks it closed. Unfortunately, it was very heavy to pick up as it weighs about 32 lbs. If you have a low car, it’s not too bad but it was difficult to lift into my car, a Subaru crosstrek, that was higher off the ground. To make lifting it a little easier, you can easily remove the wheels. As heavy as it, it felt very lightweight when walking with it. I love that the stroller’s canopy went all the way down to cover my sleeping child. There’s a magnetic peephole on top to be able to see your sleeping child without letting the sun in. You can either keep the peephole closed or you can roll it up and tuck it away in the compartment. The canopy is waterproof, wind proof, and is UPF 50. That’s a plus for me when I’m out with the stroller and very sunny out as Riley is too young for sunscreen. BOB Gear does recommend your child be at least 8 months old before jogging with them, but as early as 8 weeks with walking only. You can use a compatible adapter that works with an infant car seat from birth to 8 weeks.
