Rated 5 out of 5 by Muskegman BOB all the way!
We are no fuss parents. We aren't big on all the junk that usually comes with or hangs off strollers. (Ie: bottle holders, snacky cups and other such clutter.) The storage at the back, underneath and both mesh pockets... where small hands can reach... are plenty!
*Reclining seat-back for sleeping time.
*Nicely padded sitting area, though we took that up a notch and bought the sherpa fleece liner, which is easily removable and machine washable. nice n'fluffy too!
*Extra deep hood that blocks sun with a nice built-in peek window to check on the little one. (Or let them see you too)
*Amazingly smooth ride shocks. We run this stroller down pothole infested dirt roads. Seriously. Puts our babes to sleep every time! lol. but those extra big almost bike tires really eat up the ground and roll smoothly over curbs, or even up and down stairs!!
We have flown with our BOB strollers from Canada to NY, Costa Rica, Scotland, Florida... and it folds nicely, on the tarmac, gets put on the plane and is waiting for you again as soon as you come off. With a flick of the wrist, it opens like a pop-tent and away you go!
The revolution is the way to go too, with the turning front wheel. (It can become a stabilized jogger with the click of a switch) The change-ability takes this stroller from off road, to indoor-shopper in seconds. And the maneuverability is one-handed, turn on a dime.
The harness system is great. Even for little Houdinis, (lol) and padded nicely too without a lot of fussing with straps or adjusting when you put the child in.
Love the break bar that drops down either with pulling the strap or tapping with your toe. Back wheels lock instantly. Stroller goes no-where.
The sizing is GREAT! My daughter has ridden in her stroller since the first week she arrived and she's tall for her age. She's now almost three and still as content as can be if she needs to ride along. (She'll sit on that dip in the front and rest from running when her brother is riding in it.)
I have no negatives. Really!
We've had our BOB now for three years. We've abused it, used it, and loved every moment with it! I would recommend the product to ANYone looking to get a stroller. Seriously. The best baby-money we've ever spent.

We purchased our BOB from LLBean 4 years ago. It is hands down the best stroller. I have not had problems with the canopy hitting my son's head. This stroller is so easy to use and stable when running. Our son is now 6 and we have a little girl now who's 8 months old. So glad we have this stroller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AjN18 WORST STROLLER
I purchased this stroller, thinking it would be a step up from the Schwinn...MY MISTAKE! My 2 year old does not fit in it AT ALL. His head hits the canopy every time he is in it. There is NO snack tray that comes with it. Which for $449, you would think it would. I went online to purchase a snack tray AND a handlebar console, only to find out that the only snack tray available is a PERMANANT mount one. Which means I have to take my son out and hit his head and legs every time....The smooth ride does NOT make up for what this stroller lacks!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiniR Bobs are the best!
Went back and forth between buying a used model or the new "11 models. I am very pleased with my new stroller and feel it is the best brand on the market.

People say the Bob is the best jogger and is synonymous with "jogging stroller," like how you call tissue Kleenex even though that is a brand. So I think my expectations were a little high. The frequent complaint on these is that the seat back is too short and I agree. I was on the fence about returning because of this reason. My son is 30inches and even though he fits fine now, how long is it going to last? I decided to keep it and I'm glad I did after about 3 weeks of use now. Although the seat back short, it is still the most competitive jogging stroller on the market because it is narrower and lighter than competitors. My mom and others tell me there is still plenty of room for at least a couple more years of use and I see really big kids in these at the mall still using the Bob. Their heads are hitting the canopy(open) but they must not be uncomfortable. In the meantime, I am enjoying it every day. The ride is smooth, canopy is huge and I can't ask for more.

This stroller is hands down the best that
we have used. It is very rugged and stable. My wife and I bot this for our
daughter and son in law and they love it.
They had a Swinn. It was very loose
and very hard to jogg with. I did a test with my three year old granddaughter.
One run with each stroller. The Swinn was
first and it was o.k.. When I got in a full jogg it was unstable and started to wobble. The second run was with the Bob and it was great! No wobble, just as smooth as silk. Even when I tried a full run. I would recommend this stroller to anybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoubleB Super Stroller
This stroller is fantastic. It is so easy to push over any surface, and the shocks keep it from bouncing the baby too much. The spinning front wheel makes it easy to steer. I ordered an adapter kit from BOB so I can snap the infant seat into it, but I also use it without the adapter. The sun shade is nice. Two downsides: 1) it is large and heavy, so not terribly easy to transport. It does fold up but it still awkward to get into the car. I think this is a problem with any jogging stroller. Therefore I have a smaller "everyday" stroller. 2) It doesn't come with a cup holder...so I had to order one separately from BOB. It does have a nice basket below and a mesh pocket on the back, but I like having water up top. Overall though I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cutlarie BOB Revolution SE Stroller, Single
Love this stroller. The SE has the ability for the front wheel to move and it can maneuver in tight places. It can set up and fold with one hand. Durable and very comfortable for the baby.

I did my research and found that the Bob was the best jogging/walking stroller for uneven city streets and rugged terrain. We liked other brand strollers too but, none fit the Chicco infant car seat with an adapter as easy to install as the 2011 Bob. The only con is the weight...I wish it was 5-10 lbs lighter. This SE was the best price we found AND LLBean honored a 20% of coupon. Fabulous deal!
