Help! We live on a boat so need something compact and light but also good at tackling sand and rough terrain.

Any suggestions?

I would have said the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle rather than theSwift but its not small or compact! I have a Mutsy Urban rider andi love the way the air tyres drive straight up kerbs without me having to lift. I suspect it would be great off road. It's not particularly light or compact either though.

lots of people on here love their mb swifts, i have an urban and its not light, i also have a micralite fastfold they are compact and very good, when the front wheels are lifted up the back wheels would cope with almost anything and they are very light to push

Thank you everyone I shall endeavour to go check them all out. For some reason I am feeling very overwhelmed by pushchairs!!

Out n About Nipper 360.

Very lightweight, good off road pneumatic 3 wheeler, massive seat and suitable from birth.

New ones are out in August I think but the current model is fine.

Mountain buggy swift is not only small, neat, light, great off road... but folds up small and freestands folded. Very space saving. Copes excellently off road.
