Kolcraft owns Jeep brand and one of the Great products they make are strollers. Since Phil and I have been walking and he plans to start running soon I decided to review the Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller.
This stroller is awesome but before I get into how awesome it is I had my husband write up a bit about it in his opinion.
"The Jeep overland stroller is a very light weight and durable stroller. This stroller comes mostly assembled however , it does require some simple assembly before use. It will be necessary for you to install the foot rest, wheels, safety guard, and cup holder. Everything installs quickly and easily by simply inserting and clicking the required parts into the designated areas, with the exception of the foot rest, which will require a philips head screw driver in order to screw in four screws which will hold it into place. My Wife and I have been going for walks nightly and couldn’t wait to take it for a spin and test it out."
"This stroller comes equipped with a hand brake, ipod/mp3 speaker, and a counter. Upon connecting the ipod to the speaker, which requires 4 AAA batteries, we found it to be not very loud. Although… I suppose you really don’t want it to go very loud seeing as it aims directly at your little ones head. The counter system utilizes a sensor on the the front wheel forks and a magnet on the wheel itself. Every time the magnet crosses the path of the sensor it reads the revolutions calculating the distance and time of your walk or run. You will need to make sure that the magnet on the wheel is facing the correct way in order for the sensor to detect it. You parents out there do need to realize though that this stroller is designed more for athletic use and not so much your daily hustle and bustle. The stroller does not maneuver easily and is designed more for straight lines."
I think my husband said it well. This is a great stroller for outside running and walking although it is not made to be a daily stroller and doesn't maneuver well in tight spaces as that's not what it is designed for. I really love how it tells you the time and distance traveled and I noticed the seat is bigger than our everyday stroller and has way more room for our 2 and a 1/2 year old to grow into. Shane is extremely comfortable in this stroller and really enjoys going on walks in it.
