    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    This is my favorite stroller. I wavered on spending the money but after reading great reviews I felt it would be worth it. Now here is my why it was worth it review. My daughter is very tall for her age, every stroller she was way to talk for. Her feet would hang almost to the ground or they were pushed to her face. This stroller not the case. She had a ton of room. The design is awesome for kids. The seat padding is very comfortable and neither of my kids mind riding in it. I loved that the seat was adjustable for when naps came around. With naps happening in the stroller it was so nice to have a stroller that rode smooth. No bumping down the way waking up the kids. This stroller is so nice to push. Having actual tires versus plastic I think makes a huge difference. It is so smooth and makes pushing a heavy child much easier. The handle/grips are really comfortable too. I did not use a car seat with this stroller so I am not knowledgable in how the adapters worked with this stroller. Traveling with this stroller is a breeze. Very easy to fold down and load in a vehicle. Also taking out of a vehicle and setting up are very easy too. I would recommend this stroller to anyone. Yes the price can be alittle hard to swallow but once you use it a few times it is worth every penny. I love how easy this stroller is to clean also. I usually scrub it and then spray it with the outdoor hose and let it dry in the breeze and sun. The fabric is great quality and I think we will have many more great years with this stroller.

    Great Stroller for All Surfaces!

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    I love my BOB Sport Utility Stroller. I don't go hiking much and rarely ever take it jogging, but I do take walks and go to flea markets and soccer fields and it does an amazing job cruising through all of those different surfaces. I've had my BOB stroller for two years and it's older than that as I bought it used, but it still looks great and works as good as the first day I bought it. I went to the local flea market that's held at the county fairgrounds, so some areas are paved, loose gravel, grass, and dirt. We had a Graco stroller with the small wheels and I was having trouble pushing the stroller and fortunately there was someone at the flea market selling their baby stuff and they gave me a great deal on the BOB stroller. I switched right then and there and haven't used the other stroller since. We use the stroller everywhere and it moves well on all surfaces.

    Design
    The large tires are amazing and get us through all terrains. Plus it looks cool.

    Safety
    It has a pretty smooth ride that keeps my son comfortable and no concern of jarring him around or falling out.

    Child Comfort
    It's very comfortable to sit the baby in and provides a smooth ride.

    Maneuverability
    You have to make bigger turns but it is simple and easy to push.

    Durability
    I'm not even exactly sure how old mine is since I bought it used, but it works great and looks just as good.

    We love our BOB!

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    This stroller has been perfect for us! We have been using it since our son was born. We bought the attachment and used it with his newborn carseat. It folds up and fits perfectly in the trunk and we take it nearly everywhere. My favorite thing about the BOB is how easy it is to jog with. It can also cruise through the sand and on dirt paths without a problem. There is plenty of storage on the bottom for extra blankets, hats, or jackets. The upholders are also a nice feature. We bought the tray attachment and use that now for toys and snacks. It really comes in handy while shopping at the mall or strolling through the city. The only drawback I have about the BOB is that it is pretty big so not a good idea to bring to the grocery store or farmer's market where there are crowded spaces and lots of people. It is also too big to travel with so we had to buy a smaller stroller to take on the airplane.

    Love our Bob stroller

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    I have had the Bob Utility Stroller for two years now and use it every day. I feel like my daughter is extremely comfortable in it and also very safe. I love the big basket underneath and I also bought the cup holder accessory. When my daughter was born I bought the car seat adapter so I was able to use the stroller when she was a newborn. The shocks and tires are very durable and we have driven over some rough terrain during hikes. I highly recommend this stroller for people who spend a lot of time outdoors walking or jogging with their little one.

    Design
    Easy to open and close. Also easy to buckle child in.

    Safety
    5 point seatbelt

    Child Comfort
    The umbrella has an extra large range so the sun can be blocked from their eyes. There is also pockets for a couple little toys or a drink right within the child's reach.

    Maneuverability
    The locked front tire makes it hard to turn right and left without pushing down on the handle to lift the tire off of the ground. This stroller was designed to go straight.

    Durability
    Big, beefy tires still look like new.

    Easy to manuever and store

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    This stroller is amazing! As a nanny, I've used multiple different strollers and this is my favorite! It's easy to steer, no matter the size of the kiddo. The handle is adjustable so the height can be changed depending on who is using it.

    Safety
    Kids can not escape! Perfect! The straps are designed so kids can not remove their arms or legs. The point of a stroller is to keep your kiddos strapped in, right? This one works!

    Child Comfort
    The straps are padded, sides are padded, the straps are adjustable and can be changed as kids grow. No matter the size of the kid, the straps don't rub against their necks. They are adjustable enough so you don't feel like you're strangling your kid!

    Maneuverability
    This stroller is easy peasy to turn, to lift onto curbs, and maneuver in crowds. Ever have an issue with your stroller wheels refusing to turn the corner? You won't have that issue with these tires! The tires are like bike tires (here's the SUV part!). Go from sidewalks and parking lots to grocery stores to park trails and fields! Off roading in the stroller anyone? Perfect for the parent who wants to take their exercise regime outside on that perfect Spring day!

    Best go everywhere stroller

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    I love our BOB stroller. I have had it for four years and it has held up well to constant use. It's stilly in amazing shape. I have used it all terrain situations, sand, snow, trail, city use, shopping, running, roller blading, and other general use. My daughter loves this stroller, it's very comfortable, durable, easy to push and steer. I highly recommend it.

    Child Comfort
    It is very spacious, the sun shade goes down far enough to keep children well shaded and protected from the elements, and overall is very comfy.

    Maneuverability
    It's great on trails and open spaces. It's a little harder to maneuver through tight spaces for example a crowded clothing store. To get the best steer just rock back onto the back two tires and it steers super easily.

    Durability
    Very durable holds up well to constant and hard use. It works as well know as it did four years ago when we purchased it. It looks great, and shows very little wear and tear.

    The Cadillac of jogging strollers

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    While pricier than your basic stroller, it is priceless as a jogging stroller. If you are serious about continuing your running after having your baby, this us the stroller to get. One very nice extra option to purchase is the rain shield, so you can take your child in all but the worst storms.

    Design
    It functions exactly as it is meant to. The perfect jogging stroller. If you are serious about your running, this stroller is definitely worth the extra price.

    Safety
    I have never gad a problem with this stroller. Once my child was strapped in, he was in for the long run. The stroller even tipped over once, but the three point harness kept my child from being injured.

    Child Comfort
    Both of my children found the Bob stroller extremely comfortable. Even when I was not running, we used this stroller for every day use.

    Maneuverability
    This stroller keeps on track beautifully, but it us a bit unwieldy on turns. It is meant for a straight, mostly fiat surface. Turns are a but difficult.

    Durability
    Our Bob has survived every day use through two children and will be passed down to other children eventually. After awhile, it became difficult to fold, but a few sprats of WD-40 solved that problem.

    Great for gravel or rough roads!

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    I received this stroller as a gift after the birth of my second child. I had another brand stroller for my last child, but requested this stroller because of the high ratings. I know that it is expensive, but it is completely worth it when you get it out on the road. It is important to note that the stroller easily fit my 2 week old while bundled up and in the reclined position. That was great so that I could begin getting back on the road again. I felt very fortunate that I was able to bring him with at such an early age and get moving again myself.

    Design
    I wish that the front piece would come down a little further so that the wind didn't come in at all, if we want. Living in a rural town, it is important that we are able to block the wind and also gravel dust.

    Child Comfort
    He sleeps so well in the stroller! The suspension is wonderful!

    Durability
    I've only had the stroller for a few months, but it seems very durable so far.

    It glides!

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    I love the ease of pushing the stroller, and the basket underneath is an essential for me. It glides; unlike most others. It is definitely worth the money. My only problem with it is not being very compact in the trunk of the car.

    Maneuverability
    The front wheel not being able to turn is slightly difficult at times, but as long as it's expected at purchase; it's fine!

    Great versitility and easy to use!

    Comments about BOB Sport Utility Stroller:

    I have used my BOB stroller for over 4 years now and absolutley love it! I have the Sprot Utility Stroller and it is fantastic. I have taken it on vacations, through airports, trails, just about anywhere you can imagine. The quick release wheels are amazing so it actually folds down to a very compact size. I love how heavy duty the stroller is. It makes running a breeze. I highly reccomend this stroller!

    Design
    The extended visor is awesome. I blocks out all light if wanted. I especially love the wind screen because I can bundle me little one and run in semi chilled weather without having to worry that he is too cold.

    Safety
    Easy to use hand break and "leash" strap for arm.

    Child Comfort
    The seat does recline and has 2 pocket for the child. I think a little bit more of an incline would be an improvement but otherwise it's great!

    Maneuverability
    My only complaint here is I have an older BOB and the front tire doesn't pivot. I still take it everywhere though.

    Durability
    This stroller goes anywhere. The tires seem to hold up very well. A ball pump is easiest to refill tires when needed.
