    Ya, we don’t have a travel system- we went with just a regular single stroller. But we have the Britax B-Safe car seat, and if I were to go back and get a travel system, it would definitely be the B-Agile. Best value for the price, I think. And it’s on sale for $375 right now, in Canada anyways. So I’m thinking it would be cheaper in the US.

    I can’t comment on use yet, as we’re still waiting for baby to decide to make her debut, but we have the Chicco Keyfit30 along with the Chicco LitewayPlus stroller.  I didn’t like any travel systems because, honestly, I think the strollers usually look cheap and clunky.  We won’t be heavy stroller users, so we didn’t want anything really expensive and didn’t need something for off-roading kind of stuff (our primary uses will be walks around the neighborhood and things like zoo trips), so we wanted a stroller that was light-weight but still sturdy and of quailty construction.  I’m very happy with both the carseat and the stroller from what I’ve seen and just playing around with them practicing folding and different configurations and whatnot.  The LitewayPlus is great because it’s basically a high-quality umbrella stroller, but the seat back folds down for the infant stage and the carseat clicks right in – so it serves as both a carseat carrier and a toddler stroller.  It does fold and unfold in the carseat carrier position, which is nice because you don’t have to do adjustments to the settings just to fold it.

    sherryberry:  I’m not sure your budget, but those were must haves for us too – since we do farmers markets, walk pups on trails, etc . BOBs come highly recommended, but we ended up going with the Mamas and Papas Sola2 MTX. The Baby Jogger City Select and Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle were our runner ups.

    HeyJude72:  We get cold weather where we are at, and husband plays ice hockey so the rinks get really cold- we registered for a stroller footmuff for this exact reason and that thing is WARM!

    You know what? I had several different strollers for my kids, and I used each of them for different things. It has been a few years, my youngest is 6 already, but here is my take. When they were babies, I loved the carseat that clips right into the stroller. So easy. It was a base system so the base stays in the car- and you can get multiple bases for cheap- and the carset clicks in and out very easily. I was not a fan of the carseats that are convertible because they get installed and stay there. Trust me. Once baby hits about 12-18 months, the convertible one works just fine. My jogging stroller with the front wheel that swivels was great for going on hikes. All you really need is a spot for your water bottle and a spot for your phone. I wore a backpack with all the baby stuff because I sacrificed the underneath storage area for sturdier wheels that weren’t plastic. Maybe they have better options now, but it worked just fine. If you think you are going to need a stroller for going to the grocery store/big box stores, you don’t. Another reason I liked my clicky carseat for the babies is because it also clicked into the cart if you opened the top part and have baby facing you. The mall and walks around my neighborhood are the only places I used my clicky stroller.

    CocoLoco523:  Oh yes, oops I meant the car seat base (for the car), not the adaptor.

    HeyJude72:  I’m also in Canada, so maybe that’s why the price seems a little higher?

    SadieBee:  We’ve been looking at this combo, too.  I’m just afraid that even though it’s light, the stroller is too tall to fit across the back of our car.  We’re looking for a new car and measuring everything.  The carseat also seems quite heavy compared to others in the store, I’m afraid I’d want to switch the kid to a convertible in 2-3 months when it got to be 25 pounds of kid and carseat.
