Hi, I'm looking for some advice. I'm 6' and looking for a full travel system I can save up for in time for summer when no2 is due. It needs to have all terrain wheels as well as we live in a semi rural area. Any advice would me much appreciated. TIA

Hi, I had exactly the same issue as you! I’m 6’0 and I had the uppababy vista, I loved how high the handlebars extended, I never got a bad back. The only thing I would say is if you are semi rural the ride was a bit hard but they may have improved this with the newer versions. My sister is 6’3 and she had a Stokke and loved it!

Happy pram shopping!! smile

I have a cybex priam and my husband finds it comfortable to push and is tall. It is also good in park etc you can select what wheels work for you.

We have the cybex Priam. DH is 6ft, I’m 5ft 8 and DM is 5ft 2 and it adjusts comfortably for us all. Has a choice of wheels for different terrains too. We used it daily off road/over big tree roots/fields walking for hours with the dogs and it copes well.

I’m tempted to see if I can continue with a single buggy when No2 gets here next year because I like it so much.

Second vote for the Vista. I desperately wanted an I candy but wasn’t tall enough for me (5’11) or my long two year old. Have a Vista with two whoppers in it now. grin

I'm 5'11 and always used Emmaljunga prams and pushchairs as they've got the big wheels and are great for tall people.

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll be going and testing all of these out! Although I do really like the look of the new Stokke Trailz in Nordic Blue grin

If you are tall then check the length of the bassinet. We bought the Uppababy Cruz as DH is tall and he likes the extendable handle but tall people tend to have long babies and DD outgrew the bassinate very early.

Try the vista. I heard lots of good reviews about it and bff got one few months ago as she was also desperately looking for one that would match her height.

DH is 6 4 and he has no problems with our bugaboo Cameleon.

I have an out’n’about 360 nipper which is all terrain (and does it very well)

It has an adjustable handle so both me (5’4) and DP (6’2) can use it quite comfortably.

The person in the baby shop recommended it to us and said it was a workhorse and very popular with childminders.

It’s not the prettiest of buggies but we didn’t need pretty we needed something that could cope with being covered in cow muck.
