Mountain Buggy Swift Stroller Reviews

Simply the best. (By guild9)

This stroller is simply the best! As a city dweller, the maneuverability factor was a key issue in selecting a stroller. Sidewalks are tight and crowded after all! I love the front wheel swivel control and the option to lock it for a more casual walk in the park. :). It’s compact too so it fits nicely in the trunk of my Prius and stores away well in the confined space of my apartment. It’s adjustable seat assures that this is a keeper and that there will be no need to upgrade anytime soon. And talk about comfortable looking. I’m actually jealous of my two year old! I sure wish my mother could have pushed me around in one of these. It’s the Cadillac of strollers!

This stroller keeps me active! (By BrooklynZoo)

I needed a stroller that would allow me to keep up my jogging, hiking, etc., and this was definitely the one. Others didn’t off the ability to be my go-to active stroller and then also be used for every day strolling. And most importantly, our 8 month old daughter seems to be more comfortable in this stroller than any other stroller or seat we put her in! She can even take a nap in here, which is something she never does in other strollers or car seats. Love this!!!

Perfect Product For Unexpected Use! (By J. Ford)

There’s a strange phenomenon supplemental oxygen users encounter…as your oxygen needs increase, the weight of available carting-equipment that keeps you ambulatory increases ten-fold. Even stranger is the fact that pulmonary doctor’s visits require me to visit 3 different buildings on a large university medical campus. Enter the Mountain Buggy Swift Stoller…with the detachable canopy off, the cushioned extra-length back and seat are the perfect size to accommodate 2 large oxygen e-tanks. The shoulder and waist seatbelts coupled with the roll bar (instead of a tray that is more common to strollers) are the real icing on the cake. And the BIG wheels…what a smooth, effortless delight…especially when compared to the tiny little ones that are used on oxygen cylinder carts. Finally, the light weight of the cart and its small (albeit tall) profile make loading it in the car simple (using a bit of leverage). Trying to live a full life while depending on supplemental oxygen can be a challenge…but the ultimate insult is being unable to get out and about because the only available “wheels” make the load too heavy to push.

Post kid review (By MGJville)

When expecting our first kid, my only buggy requirements were that it was simple, that it could fit into our tiny car and that I could retain my man-card when pushing it in public. We settled on the Mountain Buggy Swift which easily fulfilled all three of my pre-child, narrow-minded requirements.

Since now understanding what it means to have a kid, my buggy requirements have changed slightly.

New musts:
Easy to manoeuvre (so grand parents can take kid out for long walks without parents being present).
Kid comfortable and likes being in buggy (bugger carrying a kid around who refuses to be in the buggy as well as pushing their stroller and all the other bits they need to get through a basic outing).
Somewhere to store all the other bits the kid needs to get through a basic outing (it is insane to think there was a time pre-kid where I just carried a wallet when I left the house).
Food, sick and juice dont automatically ruin buggy (surely no explanation needed here…).

The Swift fortunately nails all these new must haves as well and is easily the best stroller I have pushed to date. This may have been somewhat of a fluke purchase to end up with a product which does much more than anticipated, but when we recommend it to friends, we claim to have done our research.

If you dont know what having a kid really means, the Swift is a safe bet buggy.

Dissapointed (By Anna S.)

To start … I purchased this for my 3rd child and own several other strollers(uppababy vista , phil and teds navigator, phil and teds lux, peg perego pliko3, Maxi cosi mila, ) so I have others to compare it to :) I know I am the only reviewer so far that didn’t like this stroller and returned it …and here is why.
-cheap materials… I mean the quality is not great at all. Even the front bar is a rod with material over it…it just does not look well made!
-weird folding mechanism which definitely needs getting used to
-Seat is narrow…too narrow for my 11 month old..who is big for his age …but I was hoping he’d be more comfortable in it. While many can appreciate how narrow this stroller is when handling it in tight spaces it takes from giving the baby extra room.
-Seat is at an angle where the child doesn’t sit up all the way… and my son hated that!
-Small canopy and the mesh sun visor is also very small
-Terrible basket : small and flimsy
pros:
-lightweight
-rides smoothly thanks to air filled tires… and that’s about it. Unfortunately this stroller just didn’t work for us at all.

Amazing Stroller!! (By Rob S W)

I love the adjustable seat position. We can use it for our baby and our 3 year old!!
The foot operated brake makes everything so easy when my hands are full. Great design.
It is definitely durable and water repellent. We got caught in a storm:-(
I highly recommend this stroller!!
