compact all terrain pram advice please?

I was wondering if anyone has any advice about buying a small, lightweight, all terrain pram?
We stay in a top floor flat so the pram will more than likely stay in the car so has to fold up quite small. Lightweight would also be good too.
We'd prefer an off-road one too for long country walks too. It needs to be suitable from birth, so I guess we should get a carry cot, the seat and a car seat.
Not sure if we have too many boxes to tick

We're looked at the Quinny Buzz, but from reviews it seems to take up quite a lot of space when folded and is quite wide. Also looked at the Jane Rider, but this seems a little heavy?
I liked the Oyster size, but it doesn't seem very off-road'ish?

Any advice would be great!

The baby jogger range is good for easy folding their usp is the simple fold. And they have a handle so you can carry it to the flat if you need to. There are different models in the,range from heavy off duty models to city ranges but with gt tyres to handle bumps,and rough ground. All can take a carry cot either a compact design or a deluxe version, and adaptors for car seats. The versa model can also parent face as well as world face. I'd look on the manufacturer website as they have a comparison table si you can see all the,features for each model and best buggy review website to see photos and honest reviews. Good luck.

Forgot to say that the pushchairs are suitable from birth as lie flat if you decide not to get the carrycot, except the versa I think as that has a different seat unit.

thanks for the advice, I really liked the quick fold of the baby jogger. From memory after looking at what seemed like hundreds of prams, it was fairly lightweight. Also good you don't have to buy a carry cot if you don't want to either!

I've seen people buy a newborn wedge to make the seat unit of the versa totally flat too.

I haven't got one myself but the ICandy All Terrain is the 3 wheel version of my 4 wheel one, if it's as easy to fold and nice to push I would definitely recommned that

the icandy looks quite chunky folded as you have to remove the seat unit. that's similar to the quinny buzz and I wouldn't recommend that for the same reason if you want a small fold to fit in a flat or store in a car boot.

thanks for that - not tried folding up the icandy yet - think another trip to a pram shop is in order!

Versa is great but quite heavy to lift when folded. Babyjogger City Mini GT might be a better option?

If the 3 wheel version folds as small as the 4 wheel it will fit anywhere, you do have to take the seat off but all I do is take the belly-bar off and push the seat down on top and it compresses down pretty flat
