Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller, Phantom

The expedition jogging stroller features large bicycle tires and a front swivel wheel that can be unlocked for low speed maneuvering or locked into place for jogging. Stroller also can accept any of the baby trend flex-loc or inertia infant car seats to make a travel system, comes with both a parent tray with 2 cup holders and a storage compartment and child tray with cup holder. The multi-position reclining padded seat, has a fully adjustable 5 point safety harness and tether strap, and fully adjustable ratcheting canopy to block the sun and wind. The stroller folds effortlessly with a trigger release into a compact fold for easy storage or transport, and the extra wide ergonomically shaped rubber handle is both soft for pushing and cushy when transporting. Footrest reflectors provide greater low-light visibility, comes with an extra large storage basket, lightweight rugged steel frame construction and JPMA certified.

It was important to me that whatever stroller I purchased it had to be a jogger. This of course meant that I would be paying a lot more than if I were just looking for a general purpose stroller. All of the ones that I looked at were priced anywhere from $200 to $600 and even higher. I came across this one and at first I was a little hesitant to believe that it was as good as the reviews said it was. I thought for the price that it was going to be mediocre quality. I eventually bought it and I am so glad that I did. The quality of this stroller feels expensive.

The maneuverability of this expedition jogger stroller is so smooth and the stroller is lightweight enough that it is not hard to push even for long periods of time or while I am running. Because I run, it’s awesome that it has the tray for the parent’s cups, keys, etc. I have put a lot of miles onto this stroller and I have even taken it out on dirt roads and I haven’t noticed any wear. The basket below is large enough that it can hold a medium to large bag, meaning my diaper bag fits extremely well in it.

The only con I’ve found about this expedition jogger stroller is how bulky it is. It takes up a bigger amount of space than I would prefer. It still fits in the trunk of my car so it is still functional and with all of the pros that it has it is still worth it to me. However, I do wish that it would be a little more compact when folded but for the price I am not surprised that there’s a downfall.

Overall, I think it’s a great alternative to the more expensive options and I highly recommend this expedition jogger stroller to anyone in the market for one. It has the bulkiness issue but it also has some great features that you won’t find anywhere else for the price. I will continue to use it and will also use it for future children considering the quality and durability.

  1. I love this stroller easy to get around easy to steer and love the cup holders the only thing I don’t like is its not a very sturdy stroller for a newborn with a carseat even with the right attachments it was still very wobbly but great other wise

  2. I do not own this stroller myself, however my sister-in-law does so I use it when I go places with her. This stroller is very smooth riding and has plenty of storage. The downside is that it is super bulky. To get it in my rather large trunk we had to take the wheels off. Taking the wheels off made it very difficult to go into multiple stores in a day. Once we were in stores the stroller often got in the way due to its size. I like this stroller for being outside, but it’s too much work for taking it shopping and to doctor appointments.

  3. I found the jogging strollers are much easyer on ones back as to the hight of it but perfect for winter travels and they seem to last so much longer compaired to toehr brands of strollers i much more prefer the joggers

  4. I have this stroller in another colour. I do like how it moves but I have noticed that if the front tire is even the slightest bit flat the whole stroller will wobble. Also the canopy does nothing for shading the baby. And I wish it would be more compact when folded but that being said. I love this stroller!

  5. I have this stroller and I have to say that for the lower price, it really is a great purchase. It feels smooth and more expensive when I use it. My baby is comfortable and happy whenever we go on our daily walk, and so do I! My only complaint is that it takes up more space than I would like when stored. If it were more compact we would be even happier!

  6. I bought this amazing stroller, I figured it would help me get back into shape. Well it has. I absoulutly love it. My son loves going out on our morning jog. It is so smooth going. The wheels are so great. Love love love it!

  7. I love this stroller! It’s a little bulky but fits well in our trunks, it folds and unfolds easily so taking it shopping to multiple places is not a problem. Our infant carrier clicks into the tray and doesn’t need any other attachments wich makes it even better! It runs really smooth and is super easy to navigate through tight shopping aisles and it’s easy to handle with one hand.
