Out and about.
You value time spent outside, and that's something you want to instill in your children at an early age. The Thule Chariot Urban Glide 2 Stroller gives you the platform to do so. You should be aware, though, that calling it a stroller is a bit misleading. Sure, it's stable and functional at walking speeds, but locking the front wheel and taking it for a run confirms that it's actually a "jogger," built for active lifestyles that happen to also involve parenting.
Though it's perfectly suited to running, the Urban Glide 2 Stroller is less myopic than the standard Glide 2, which is focused solely on exercise. The Urban is slightly heavier, and its smaller front wheel makes for less high-speed stability but better maneuverability while navigating tight, urban landscapes and indoor spaces. It does still include a twist hand brake for checking speed, and the suspension system keeps jostling to a minimum when the pace does pick up.

So many jogging stroller options out there it is hard to decide. I ultimately went with the Chariot and have been very happy I did. While not a runner/ jogger I picked this up to navigate the variable terrain found while disc golfing: grass, gravel, sand, rocks mud, wood chips, etc. We have also used it at the state fair, weekend farmers market, along mellow trails through the woods and countless walks around the block. I also bought the car seat adapter and think it is worth it to get your kiddo out and about as soon as possible.
The goods: It handles any terrain so easily, very stable and smooth ride. Sturdy construction. Very easy to maneuver. Brake is solid, sunshade is awesome, plenty of storage. The harness is easy to adjust and it seems comfortable, as soon as we start moving my kid settles down. Once your kid starts to drift off you can drop the entire back-panel with one hand down to a laying position while barely breaking stride. The stroller is easy to collapse down and open back up
The Not-so-Goods: Kinda expensive but not outrageous compared to other top models. Fairly heavy and bulky once collapsed, the size could become an issue storing at home and while travelling with it. This isn't a stroller for indoors or tight quarters. No cup-holder. I bought the console accessory because I like beverages when I golf but its not a great placement and not worth it unless you take your beverages for a walk as often as your kid. Lastly, puncture vine aka goat's head thorns will ruin your time! After the 3rd patch job I decided to just squirt some "Slime" type tube sealant in there and haven't had an issue since. Overall a great piece of gear that you will appreciate through several children or family members.

I just got this for my baby niece, and her parents couldn't be more stoked on it! This stroller is very well designed and from initial impressions you can tell it will last a long time. The design of the stroller is top notch, you have an easy access brake, with add ons that are compatible with numerous carseats. In addition there's a "grow in" insert for infants, so it will grow with your child preventing multiple pricey stroller purchases. It packs down to a decent size that will fit easily in any regular sized trunk, I'd definitley recommend this to new parents since it has a 10 year warranty, and you won't have to worry about issues with all of the children you decide to have.
