Hi guys,

I'm thinking about getting a BJCS but I have read some reviews online suggesting it's heavy to push. Does anyone have one? How have you found it for walking? We do walking at a track near my house which is part road and part stone/gravel, just concerned as to how it may handle it....

Would love any other feedback anyone may have - good and bad!

Will be using it for one baby...

I have one and love it. I do lots of walking on gravel roads and it handles it beautifully. I also have a hand-me-down mountain buggy urban and phil and teds explorer and neither handle nearly so well. Not heavy at all – I can push with one hand and drink a coffee with the other! I haven’t tried it as a double yet though, which would obviously be heavier!

I find it one of the lighter prams, even when in doubles mode.
It is obviously heavier if you have a 15 kg toddler in the front seat but I still manage to steer it quite easily and I am old original.gif

I was pushing my 16 kg (approx) niece & 12 kg daughter around in mine the other day - offroad, so to speak, in a paddock.  Didn't feel heavy too me (they were sharing the one seat, DD was sitting in the foot rest).

I have one. I primarily use it in double mode.

On the occasion I use it in single mode I feel that it is lighter and easier to maneuver than the Bugaboo Cameleon I had pre BJCS.

I bought one for the double mode, previously used an emmalunja modial and it was great off road. The BCJS is easy to steer and push. Much easier than the old pram.

Thanks girls, this is great feedback, especially the comment about the coffee.
