With DS #1 we found the Snap N Go and never found another stroller that works as well, is as lightweight, or, as easy to use.

We ended up getting a jogger for Mackenzie.

My BIL got us a really nice travel system when my son was born that included the infant seat and stroller.

We had the Chicco for Rian and I loved it but it was really heavy. This time, we like the BabyTrend Expedition Travel System. DH likes the jogging stroller part, like Natalie, we like to go places that aren't always level and we need an infant seat. We kept going back to it and playing with it and really like it. We ran into someone at Micheals and DH asked them what they thought, they couldn't stop raving about it so that will be ours. :)

I'm glad you liked the snap n go because we're planning on getting 2: a single and the double. I have a feeling our babes will be smaller for a bit longer so we'll certainly get good use out of them. We're also going to get a triple stroller, especially because my DH may be on deployment shortly after they're born and I'll need a way to take them all out. The biggest draw to the triple stroller is that I can put 3 carseats on it, and it comes with toddler seats so it can be used for at least a couple of years; however, it has a hefty pricetag ($1K) and it feels like a luxury item but really is justified.

I see strollers on Craigslist all the time, so that might be a way to more easily afford the jogger. I know buying used can sometimes be not as exciting, but you can find great stuff. However, if you're going to use it most days to run and have it as your everyday stroller, I think you'll get your money out of it. Also check out the resale on it...you may be able to sell it later on and recoup a little bit of your initial investment. I think the stroller looks really nice!

We only use a rearfacing stroller until they are older so we have the Mia Moda Atmosferra and it's FABULOUS.. It lays fully back into a carriage, it has the largest sunshade, it faces forward and backwards, has a telescoping handle for when your husband wants to use it or just you if you're tall.. We just adore it..

I'd love to get this one: http://www.amazon.com/Joovy-Caboose-Stand--Stroller-Appletree/dp/B0038QMLAK/ref=sr_1_2?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1308777332&sr=1-2

I just can't justify spending that much on a stroller. If I walked/ran everyday maybe.

I have about 5 strollers for my DS (and no I'm not even kidding). I have a travel system, 1 umbrella strollers, 2 slightly larger than umbrella strollers and a Jeep stroller that looks and feels like a jogging stroller. :D

&& My mom found a really nice double stroller that sells for $200 for $10 a the thrift store. So I'm pretty stoked about that. :)

I had about four or five useful strollers which I gave away before I found out I was pregnant with this one...oops!
