I'm looking for a lightweight comfy pushchair for my 13 mth old that will be easy to take on public transport but they key feature is having handles that are either extendible or already have enough length for a tall parent. My DH is 6'5'' and hates pushchairs that he has to lean over to push... any recommendations? Thx

I know the Silver Cross Reflex has adjustable handles, I would check out the new cybex pushchairs as well, almost the same as baby jogger city mini but with adjustable handle

I would say a maclaren techno xt as they are fairly high or a bugaboo bee has a long extendable handle (pricey tho!).

Nuna Pepp is lightweight and has an extendable handle, not sure how high the handle goes but maybe worth a look?

The techno is quite high, the nuna pepp does extend, I'm not sure how high either. The joie kixx has a telescopic handle too and the new cybex ones, of which there are many so I can't remember the individual names. The city mini has a fairly high handle too really. The mamas and papas sync extends pretty high, I'm not too sure how reliable it is generally though.

We have a baby jogger city mini gt which 6ft7 DH is happy with. It goes down low enough for 5ft3 me too!
