I find I'm hunched over most of the time.

My SIL liked her Jane one because she was quite tall and had a long stride. It didn't have a linked brake bar at the back so she could still walk naturally. Think it was similar to this one

I really want the Stokke one - but can't justify its price!

we've got the maclaren techno has it has adjustable handle height up to sometihng like 111cm's which is one of the best handel heights we've seen.

Our Silver Cross Wayfarer is fab for this as the handle is long. DH is 6' 3" and can walk fine with it.

I've played with a Stokke Xplory on about three occasions now as I liked some of the design ideas.

Make sure you spend a few mins in a store trying to adjust height / convert to two wheels / fold up / unfold etc.

I found it fiendishly complex (though a dream to push), and pretty bulky when folded.

I'm 6' and the best one I had was an ordinary Maclaren lie-back umbrella-fold buggy - not the very cheapest, next one up - handle height was c 105cm but also the design meant that the handles stuck out a long way behind the back wheels so I didn't kick them. (Wheels, not handles!)

Don't know if they still do it though?

The Mountain Buggy with handlebar extender is good, although I don't know how high it is. It's a bit too high to be comfortable for me, but I'm only 5'6". DH is 6'4", and finds it pretty comfortable. You can certainly stride with it.

I'm almost 6foot and have found my maclaren quest fine. My Mamas and papas MPX chassis is adjustable and goes pretty high so it's also good.
