Overall Happy - Many Pros and One Con,
This review is from: Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System, Phantom (Baby Product)So far it works pretty well and looks pretty snazzy. My wife and myself are pretty happy with our first higher priced baby purchase.
Pros: The build quality seems to be pretty good. The tires are great and are easy to maneuver. It really does give it a nice ride. Assembly was extremely easy. Also, I like the design of this version compared to the older model. I like that everything is a uniform color instead of having red here and there for levers. The stroller folds up VERY easily. Just pull the two hooks on each side of the frame and push down slightly, gravity will do the rest.
Con: Taking the stroller off of the base in the car and the stroller can be a little difficult. The lever takes more force than what we think it should need. A couple of times my wife had difficulty squeezing the lever enough to remove it from the base/stroller. It isn't a deal breaker, just something to prepare for. If you do not hear it click, you most likely need to squeeze harder... Read more

This review is from: Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System, Bubble Gum (Baby Product)LOVE this travel system. This was bought for our third child. After using two different brands for each of my other children, this Baby Trend travel system has by far been my favorite!! It was also the best value out of other systems we looked at. Very affordable without compromising the quality.
The stroller is lightweight and simple to break down and unfold. I'll take all three of my kids somewhere and I'm pretty much able to pop up the stroller one-handed. There's a cubby on top that my phone fits in, as well as two cup holders up top for me and two below for baby.
One of the requirements we had for a travel system was the bicycle-like tires. The hard plastic wheels on other strollers make for a bumpy, rough ride with baby and wouldn't fare well with our active (ish) lifestyle. These tires make the ride very smooth and comfortable for our little girl! We also live in an area with a ridiculous amount of goat-head plants, so I bought a bottle of tire slime and... Read more

This review is from: Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System, Baltic (Baby Product)I've had this travel system picked out since before I got pregnant, so I'm very happy that it met my expectations. I did plenty of research and honestly kept an open mind when reading and reviewing other strollers / car seats. I knew I wanted a travel system because you know that your car seat will fit the stroller and they will match. I went with Baby Trend because the stroller is a jogger with inflatable rubber tires, the car seat base uses LATCH, and mostly because the price is realistic. (I paid $250 for the Baltic.) I liked certain features of the Graco Trekko stroller better, but overall Baby Trend had features that were more important to me. (ie, CUP HOLDERS!!)
Most of the bad reviews refer to the bulk of the stroller, a wobbly front wheel, and a bad speaker. I'll address those first.
1. This stroller is large, but that's what you get with joggers. I'm excited that I'll have room to bundle my baby during the winter without stuffing her into the seat. I... Read more
