Chicco Activ3 Jogging Stroller is the ideal combination of a stylish everyday stroller and a fitness jogger. If you have an active lifestyle, this stroller might just be the perfect solution. The stroller weights 27 pounds (12.2 kg) which is an average weight for jogging stroller and it is designed for children up to 55 pounds (25 kg). This stroller dimensions are 25″W x 42″H x 47.5″L when unfolded and 25″W x 15″H x 37.5″L when folded. You can purchase this beautiful stroller for 299.99$ on Amazon and for around 380$ on Ebay which is a great price for jogging stroller. Beside its price and great looking, I really like some new and unique features like parking brake and front wheel lock controls on the handle bar. Let’s dive into what the key features are.
As I mentioned in introduction, Chicco Activ3 Jogging Stroller is available for 299.99$ on Amazon and for around 380$ on Ebay, which is a very good price for this nice looking and quality jogging stroller. Most jogging strollers on the market with similar quality cost much more then this one, so I definitely recommend Chicco Activ3.
2. Huge Canopy
The stroller comes with beautiful canopy that provides excellent sun protection. It has a zip-out panel to make the canopy goes all the way down to the bumper bar.
3. Huge Peek-a-boo Window
There is a huge tinted peek-a-boo window which allows you to check your baby whenever you want during the ride.
4. Adjustable Padded Handle Bar
The handle bar is covered with ergonomic foam which is very softy and gentle for your hands. Also, the handle bar can be adjusted in four different positions (from 39″ to 45″ from the ground). This is definitely a plus if you and your partner have significant height differences.
5. Wrist Strap
This stroller has safety wrist strap that is attached to the handle bar. This feature is very important to me because it ensures the stroller is always within reach.
6. Parent Tray
As you can see in the picture above, the stroller comes with a parent tray that has two cup holders and little storage between them where you can store your keys, smartphone or wallet. The parent tray is made of the same quality fabric as the rest of the stroller.
7. Extra Comfortable Seat
This stroller has nicely padded and roomy seat that your little angel will love it. The seat is made of high quality and easy to clean material.
8. Multi Position Recline
The seat has multi position recline that requires only one hand. It goes to about a 45 degree angle which is comfortable position for napping.
9. Padded 5-point Harness
The Chicco Activ3 is equipped with padded and adjustable 5-point harness. While the buckle is not the most heavy-duty, it adequately does the job, and the buckle cover is a nice touch.
10. Removable Belly Bar
The stroller has padded belly bar that protects your kid from falling out of the stroller. It swivels or removes easily, so ins and outs are a breeze.
The Chicco Activ3 rolls on three 12″ rubber tires that never go flat. The front wheel swivels, and you can also lock it straight if you are jogging or want more stability during the walk. To lock the front wheel, you need to push the button on the handle bar. How great is that!
12. Adjustable Suspension System
This is definitely one of the unique features of this stroller. It has adjustable suspension that you control with your foot. The suspension system has two settings, one for rough and uneven terrains, and the other for smooth terrains.
13. Parking Brake
Parking brake on this stroller is also hand-activated. To lock both rear tires in place, you need to push button on the handle bar.
14. Huge Storage Basket
This stroller comes with huge storage basket where you can keep you essential items like diapers, snacks, toys, blankets etc. I like how the basket is easily accessible even when the seat is fully reclined.
15. Car Seat Compatible
The Chicco Activ3 has removable arm bar designed to attach Chicco Keyfit and Keyfit 30 car seats.
16. Easy Fold
The stroller folds very easy, it uses unique folding mechanism whereby you have to twist the handle bar and lift up. Once folded, the stroller is self-standing which is great for transporting or storing your stroller.
I didn’t find anything that is missing or that I want to change on this stroller. I absolutely love Chicco Activ3 stroller and for that price I guarantee you that you can’t get better stroller then this one.
Video Review (Baby Gizmo):
What other parents say about this stroller:
“Absolutely love!! So easy to steer and amazing how the chicco car seat snaps right in!”
“First of all, let me say that I never in a million years that I’d ever spend this much on a stroller. I used to be a big supporter of the “kids don’t need the expensive stuff” camp. After buying this stroller I see why people splurge on certain items. This being my last kid I’m upset with myself for being so stubborn before. This stroller is worth every penny!! I looked into BOB strollers and after looking at some in stores I could hardly see over the handle. I’m 5’1″ and the inability to more than handle made me look like a kid pushing it. The number one thing that sold me on this one was the fact that I could adjust that. It’s just a wonderful stroller all around and I highly recommend. On par with BOB strollers and as far as I’m concerned are the better of the two!!”
“I love this stroller. After a ton of research and not wanting to go with the jogging stroller everyone buys, I went with the Chicco Active (I also have a KeyFit carseat so the compatibility was a pretty big selling point). After reading one reviewer’s comments on the bumper bar, I was sold on getting this particular one (I didn’t know it at the time, but my son LOVES holding onto it when we’re out so it worked out well). I love that the handebar is adjustable, it’s easy to open and close, the recline is easy to figure out, the storage is a decent size (not as big as I would like but it fits my diaper bag and I can’t expect too much in that department), it’s really easy to steer and push (I’m 5’5 and my husband is 6’5 and it works well for both of us), 5pt safety harness, seems to be comfortable (my son likes it), has a parent organizer and I think it’s fairly attractive. I absolutely hate that it’s large when folded. I drive a Mazda3 and it almost takes up my entire trunk (the front wheel has to be folded down to even get it into my car), but my husband drives a truck and it is great when we go places and he drives.
I’ve had no problems using in on various terrains and when taking it out as a primary stroller and walking around, I’ve been known to press down and use the shocks to bounce the stroller (my son likes that for some reason). I’ve gotten compliments on it as well. I know it isn’t as popular as the BOB, but I see it as a pretty solid choice, and it’s at a price point I can appreciate for a jogger. I’m very pleased with my choice.”
