by willowfaithfrom2 1/2 year old loves it!Just got my Chariot today and I love it, the toddler loves it. Now to see if the baby loves it - I sure hope she does. The sling was a bit troublesome to configure. Took it for a spin down the 4 wheeler trail and it went very well over pretty rough terrain. And I got it on sale!

by dcskibikefromGreat ProductThe construction, design, finish, looks, of this trailer are top notch. It is very simple to set-up and to collapse. I have only used it a little bit while cycling but it worked great. I used it quite a bit with the ski attachment and that was fantastic. It was nice and smooth, not much gliding resistance, and very stable. It is pricey, but when you compare it to less expensive brands, it's superior design, ease of use and construction is apparent, and it is worth the extra money.
One feature I particularly liked is the quick release harness buckles that allow you to move the harness to the middle for one child, in the matter of seconds. All aspects of this tailer are very well thought out and engineered.

by ActivedadfromWorth Every PennyI purchased my Cougar stroller and a Phil & Ted as I had friends tell me the P&T would be best for infants due to its flexibility.At a couple of weeks old, my wife wanted to go for a quick walk up and down the street so we used the P&T and quickly realized that it was not ideal. My baby was totally exposed to the elements and she and we were not happy. I quickly purchased the infant sling for my Chariot and used a liner ([@]) to keep my little one snug. It turned out to be the best purchase we would make.After a few months of daily usage, my wife and I absolutely love this stroller. In fact, I have not yet attempted to use the P&T again.Best things about it: you can totally shield the wind and sun and it's configurable so you can allow wind or block it, allow sun or block it, or totally seal it up on the cold nights. There is plenty of storage space for blankets, change of clothes and changing items. Best of all, it feels like the quality item it is. I looked at dozens of other strollers on the market and most felt flimsy, didn't have adequate weather protection, provided poor baby containment, were overly large simply for the sake of looking durable or didn't have much usable storage space.I have since added my own touches such as bicycle lights for night time walks, ipod speakers and a water bottle holder. It is awesome and our baby loves it. It is a bit pricey, but well worth the cost. I can not wait until I can use the bike attachments. My one gripe. While easy to disassemble, it is a bit long. It fits in trunks or hatches fine, but since we always have other non-baby items to carry, space can be at a premium. This is most due to our small cars too, though.
