Hi, I'm researching lots of different systems..

I have 2 crazy spaniels that need lots of walking mainly off road, woods beaches etc...

So far I've been looking at the I candy Apple Jogger and the Uppababy vista

Does anyone have an reviews on either of these systems or know of anyothers that are suitabel from birth that has a carrycot/car seat???

Thank you

I can't say I would particularly head you towards either of these for serious offroad although the Apple would probably be better. Have a look at the Baby Jogger City Mini GT / Elite / Summit or the Mountain Buggy Swift / Urban Jungle, or the TFK Joggster Twist or an Easywalker Sky or similar.

Thank you... I really like the look of the mountain buggy.. Do you know if there is a huge difference between the swift and the urban jungle?? I've checked the spec and there are some differences in wheel size suspension and price!! But I wondered if it's worth paying the extra for the urban jungle??

The swift has a smaller frame than the uj as well as smaller wheels... i think? It always looked that way, I really don't know how much functional difference there is, for more off road the bigger wheels may be better, plus the larger seat for the longer term. I have a swift and my slightly taller then average almost 3yo fits okay but I can't imagine it would last beyond that for a bigger baby/child.

It depends really - to be honest mainly on your height! The Swift handlebar is low for me at 5ft 6 ins. Having had a Swift I had to sell it because of the handle height. Also the seat is relatively small. The wheels size you need depends on your terrain. Also I believe the Swift has no suspension wheras the UJ has. If size and money is no issue then get the UJ.

Excellent, thank you for the replies
Sounds like the urban jungle might be a better choice...
Thanks again..
