Best Jogging Stroller

Top 10 Rated Jogging Strollers 2014

By

As a parent there are many reasons why a jogging stroller would be a necessary addition to your life. You want to stay fit, but don’t have anyone to watch your baby for an hour every day. Taking your baby on a jog might be a good change of environment for them. (Going for a ride may even put them to sleep.) Maybe just want to have your baby nearby no matter what you are doing. A jogging stroller is also going to be a top quality stroller outside the act of jogging too. We rated some of the best jogging strollers out there with the following criteria:

1. Price
2. Quality frame
3. Safety features like hand brakes and harnesses
4. Weight capacity
5. Tires that last and perform well on multiple surfaces
6. Comfort features for children like padding and canopies
7. Ability to fold into compact sizes for carrying and traveling
