I was going to say the City Mini with the Chicco Keyfit 30 is a very popular choice!  I would have got the City Mini if I hadn’t got the Bravo travel system for super cheap at toys are us closing.

I loooove my City Mini with the Peg Perego seat! It’s the same adapter as the Chico Key fit. It collapses so nicely! I always, always say this. The car seat is the most important thing. The Chico Key Fit ranks super high on the latest crash test safety ratings. I would put safety ratings above price any day. I’m due in 5 or so weeks, but this is sitting in my dining room waiting.

milkandcookies :  I have the chicco viaro which is a 3 wheel but they’re plastic. I will say that the 3-wheel definitely does maneuver better so if you can find one with better tires for your gravel road you’ll be golden! Think about what you’ll want to use it for too. My friend only got this massive off-roading style stroller and it’s ridiculous to take shopping and I don’t think she ended up using it very much. We don’t use a stroller very much at all and when we do it’s on paved sidewalks for the most part which is why we went with what we went with. The chicco seat is awesome though!

milkandcookies :  I don’t really like it for use with the infant carrier.  It needs to have the tray, (which i i guess it’s nice to have a tray for toddlers too), but it sticks out like a sore thumb and takes up so much space.  So when I do use it as a stroller, I will definitely not be using the tray.  I have a nissan altima and it practically takes up the whole trunk. 

eta (oops, i realized youre askking about 3 wheel, the bravo is a 4 wheel…)

City Mini GT all the way! That and the Peg Perego car seat and you have a great, lightweight, easy to use set up.

Have you looked at mountain buggy and phil&teds. Most of their strollers have a super compact fold, the ability for your baby to lie flat (it’s not recommended leaving your baby in their car seat for long walks), narrow widths and all terrain tires. We have the phil&teds smart for shopping and around town and although it’s 4-wheels, it glides over everything. We use a Thule chariot (it has adjustable suspension) for light hikes, biking and jogging.
