Phil and Ted's Stroller
A friend recently sent me a link to a Salon contributor's glowing review of the
E3, and I am considering splurging on it. Does anyone have experience with
the E3? We're having our first baby in a few months, and expect to have
another a couple of years down the line. We also have friends with babies, and
so the second seat could come in handy before we have a second baby. It
seems great to be able to have ONE stroller that would work for the infant
through two todder stages, but the E3 isn't cheap and so I wanted to find out if
it's as wonderful as recent reviews suggest. Also, would you recommend
purchasing the optional carseat strap and sunshade?
Most moms that I've had at my classes really like it. I haven't
heard many bad things with the exception of the price. My only
concern would be if a toddler would sit in the underseat for
Here is an excerpt taken from the review on JoggingStroller.com:
As for limitations and drawbacks, it should be noted that the
e3 Explorer is not intended for jogging (swivel wheels, while
great for manueverablility, are not good for running) - nor is
it designed for twins. If you're looking to jog with your kids,
or have twins, you might want to check out some of the other
double jogging strollers. Some parents, used to side-by-side
double strollers, worry about the limited view from the rear
seat - however, there is plenty of viewing area on each side,
and we've actually found that many kids seem to prefer the rear
seat over the front one. Finally, other than the underseat
basket, there is not a lot of storage space - however, since
most people also purchase the Phil & Ted's Panier Bags and/or
the Backpac X accessories, this is not usually a problem.

I can't say enough good things about our Phil & Ted's double
stroller. I used to dread going for walks with our baby and 3
year old -- either lugging the chubby babe in the bjorn or
dragging his brother behind -- now we just zoom along with the
boys safely tucked in. The stroller maneuvers like a dream and
is so easy to convert from single to double. My only gripe (and
this is minor, really) is that it doesn't fold up into a tidy
little package like our Maclaren did (but it does fold).
I'd say if you're planning on having more than one kid, go for
