I had my eye set on two Travel System Strollers by GRACO (GRACO Quattro Tour Travel System-Carlisle and GARCO quattro Tour Reverse Travel System-Capri) . They are heavy duty, with a car seat and read really good reviews about both,but I am so unsure of which direction to go, I am due April and summer is coming so I thought it would be great to have a jogging stroller so I can put it into a double duty use.
What do you all think? Share your experience about the best stroller you've had!

We got an all terrain/jogging travel system from baby trend. We love it!

The travel system is perfect for what it is intended for --- travel! If you travel a lot it is definitely a great investment!

With our oldest we purchased a travel system and regretted it. Where we live only about 10% of the streets are paved so the stroller wheels were useless. Also our daughter out grew her carrier in six months . When our daughter was around nine months we decided to get a jogger ( baby trend) and loved it ! It really worked better for where we live. When we got pregnant with our second we decided to go straight to a convertible and we sold our jogger to a friend of ours and bought a double jogger ( Phil and teds) best purchase we could have made. I would say it really depends on your lifestyle , if you jog allot or go to places that aren't always paved then a jogger might be a better way to go . If you just use it for walking to the park or around the mall then the travel system is alright . Also look at if and when you would want to have more kids. You don't want to spend a whole lot of money on something you'll only get a year or two use out of then you'll need to upgrade to a double stroller of some sort.

Thanks for the advice, we've decided to go with the jogger,the pavements aren't so great where we live and I'm planing on jogging too! I think we made the right decision ! :)
