Ah, was going to suggest a BJCM4 grin

Mac Techno XT?

M&p armadillo?

Currently £50 off

I really want one!

How can you hate a BJCM?!

Anyway, Maclaren Techno XT sounds like a good choice for you. I had one and found the handles to be just a little too high for me even on the lowest setting, and you can adjust them to a further two positions higher than that.

The recline is good, it's suitable from birth so it goes pretty much flat. And the extending hood is brilliant, it comes 'down' as well as just going further out than a normal stroller hood.

Deffo a Maclaren. Of you are planning on more dc get the XLR as you can at a later date add a carrycot so suitable from birth.

Strange. Apart from the mesh/footmuff issue I've never had a problem and have had 4 BJCMS in their various forms and use a GT every day. Luckily dd2 is turned 2 and mostly out of the footmuff stage now so not an issue for much longer. Then again my beloved pushchair won't be an issue for much longer <sob>

Definitely XT for you then. I was very fond of my one.

Me too, I love everything about mine, but I do agree that it's annoying the way you can't hook a Buggysnuggle footmuff over the back of the seat!
That's my only problem with it! I never bought the 'official' raincover, I have a Red Kite one that I got from Asda which fits perfectly (with the hood fully extended though, it's not so good with the hood just pulled out half way).

Not the xlr. We had the chameleon, borrowed friends xlr and it was horrid. Impossible to push one handed, heavy, floss huge, baby sagged down

I suggest the babyzen yoyo ( folds into hand luggage size so handy if you have to fold on train/ take on plane )

Otherwise you can't go wrong with a bugaboo bee ( Lots on eBay also)

Mumof3xx- how do you get the £50 off? I've done a google search and nothing has come up, and i haven't seen anything in their emails. I really fancy the armadillo too and will definitely try it out with £50 off. TIA x

Mumof3xx Wed 12-Mar-14 20:52:03

It's a code I got in an email

Thank you!

The Armadillo is just horrible - the seat doesn't sit upright. The harness is hard work.

At least two of your issues are resolved on the new 2014 BJCM4 - they have new style harnesses and buckles. There are boards in the seats too. A footmuff can easily be attached by using one with ties and pushing the ends through the mesh and tying them.
I can't believe you think the raincover is worse than the Cam one! There's loads of alternatives on the market which are easier to fit.

Anyway you clearly don't like your Baby Jogger - but I think you have been unlucky.

Look at a Babyzen YoYo! I can't think of much better - but don't grumble about the lack of suspension, or the even worse raincover, or the hard to put on and off brake.....
