    Top 5 Best Budget All-Terrain Stroller | 2017 Reviews

    Having a baby does not mean that you should also stop pursuing an active lifestyle. In fact, looking after another human being should motivate you even more to continue exercising. But, how do you make it possible to look after your physical health without your baby getting in the way? Get an all terrain stroller instead!

    But, honestly, purchasing an off road baby stroller can be very intimidating. Not only are there a lot of considerations and features to look at, you also have to think about the price tag. Fortunately, there are still a number of all terrain baby strollers that perform quite well and yet do not cost an arm and a leg.

    How do you choose the best off road stroller for your family?

    Obviously, you will have to look into the wheels and suspension system first. These types of stroller are usually fitted with three wheels – one in the front and two slightly larger at the back. Don’t be surprised if they are a lot bigger than the regular stroller wheels (12 inches and up) because they are designed to take on very rough terrains. It is also important to look into the suspension system as it helps keep your baby safe and comfortable inside even if you walk, jog or run along uneven surfaces.

    Of course, you might also want to look at other features such as storage options for both parent and child (this could include cup holders and storage for phones and keys) and more.

    To help make your hunt for your perfect match, we have come up with our all-terrain stroller reviews. We hope this will make shopping a whole lot easier for you!

    2015 Graco FastAction Fold Sport Stroller

    2015 Graco FastAction Fold Sport Stroller

    At 21.47 pounds, the Graco FastAction Fold Sport Stroller is among the lightest (second in our list), most convenient all-terrain stroller that fits right within most of our budget!

    We have always loved Graco and it seems that their budget all-terrain stroller has impressed us once again. This stroller is quite popular among parents and functions very well, especially as a rugged three-wheeler that can accompany parents and children in their pursuit to fitness.

    So, what is so awesome about this off road stroller? Obviously, its lightweight design is its strongest feature. Despite it being very light, it is able to carry up to 50 pounds of baby weight which is awesome. This stroller also comes with a lockable front swivel wheel to ensure that it is still easy to maneuver even with a passenger inside. Parents and children are guaranteed with a smooth and hassle-free ride when you go on strolls along uneven surfaces; it definitely has the makings of the best jogging stroller.

    When it comes to storage, this stroller also does not fall short because it comes with a storage compartment and two deep cup holders for the parents. Of course, the passenger is also provided with a tray (with cup holder) that can be pivoted and removed. Another feature to love about the stroller is its convertible 3- or 5-point harness (you can change to the former when the baby is older for added flexibility in movement) and the extra large, expandable sun canopy that provides more than enough protection against the sun.

    All-terrain strollers can be bulkier than usual but despite that, they are usually made easy to fold and store. This particular one has a red strap on the toddler’s seat that can be pulled so the stroller folds in just one second. Plus it has a carrying strap making transport much easier.

    With so many awesome features (also compatible with the Graco SnugRide car seats), there is no doubt that the Graco FastAction Stroller deserves to be placed at the top spot in our list.

    InStep Grand Safari Swivel Wheel Jogger

    InStep Grand Safari Swivel Wheel Jogger

    When it comes to all-terrain strollers, among the first considerations to keep in mind should always be comfort and maneuverability. Despite the rather low price range it belongs to, the InStep Grand Safari Swivel Wheel Jogger thankfully does not disappoint.

    One of the best features that this jogger have (which immediately got our attention) is its 12-inch pneumatic front tires that includes a remote lockout as well as two 16-inch rear wheels. If that is not enough to convince you of its all-terrain power then we are not quite sure what else will.

    Aside from the wheels and the advanced suspension system that keep the baby safe and comfortable inside, no matter how bumpy the ride may be, the stroller also comes with a faux lambskin seat pad that adds warmth and coziness all throughout the ride. For even added convenience, a pivoting child’s tray is available as well as a molded tray with two cup holders for the parents. The stroller even has built-in MP3 speakers and slip-resistant rubberized handles to keep parents company during those long walks, jogs or runs.

    This impressive jogger stroller can hold up to 55 pounds (some sites say as much as 75 pounds) of baby weight yet still remain comfortable for the parent. Baby is kept safe at all times with the 5-point harness plus an adjustable canopy that will protect them from the harmful sun’s rays from every angle.

    Don’t be surprised or intimidated if the InStep gets a little bulky to load up on your car trunk; that’s usually how jogger strollers are. Getting some air into the tires may also be a bit of a hassle because of the plastic but it is otherwise an awesome product that you can use with your kid.

    Who says having a kid should stop you from pursuing an active lifestyle? For that reason, we are placing this product at the second spot in our list.

    Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System

    Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System

    Yet another brand that you can add to the list as one of the best off road stroller is this Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System. Despite its heavy 49-pound build, we certainly think that this one performs pretty well and should be highly considered by those looking for all-terrains strollers.

    What do we like about this jogger? Like most other jogger strollers, this one comes with a swiveling front wheel that can be locked into place for when you are jogging or running with your baby. However, you can be sure that its tires are strong and sturdy enough so you can push it even through the roughest and toughest surfaces. Even as you take it out the box for the first time, you won’t be as intimidated because assembly is quite easy.

    The only problem that parents have with this jogger, aside from its heavy weight, is its rather clunky car seat base. Constantly taking off the base from the car and moving it into the stroller can be a little difficult. You will have to make sure that you push the lever enough so you can hear the click otherwise it means it isn’t secure yet.

    If you do have a newborn, you might think twice about purchasing this travel system. The seat isn’t the best designed in the market and very small kids may have issues sitting in it especially when they are not yet old or strong enough to hold their heads. It looks slightly uncomfortable looking at them. The sunshade that this stroller comes with also does not work as well as it is intended, especially when your kid no longer uses the infant car seat.

    Despite a few cons, this jogger still does a good job at transporting a baby from one point to another along rough terrains so it is still something that parents might want to consider. It fits the budget quite well so we are putting this one at the middle of our list.

    Baby Trend Stealth Jogger Travel System

    Baby Trend Stealth Jogger Travel System

    The Baby Trend Stealth Jogger Travel System is also another product that parents should consider when looking for a great hiking stroller in the market. It is designed with style in mind, is quite affordable and can compete quite well with other brands of similar features.

    This jogger comes with a front swivel wheel that can be locked in placed for added security and stability and also has two 16-inch tires at the back to absorb the bumps that you meet along the way. This one sadly does not have a child tray but it does have a bumper bar which helps make the child stay even more secure and safe in their seats, aside from the 5-point harness.

    This jogger travel system also comes with Flex Loc infant car seat (great price) that can accommodate little ones from 5 to 30 pounds so you do not have to worry about small bouncing babies while you go out for a brisk walk, hike, jog or run.

    Another thing we love about this stroller is that folds compactly so you can easily fit it inside your car trunk or store it inside the house without any worries.

    If you are worried about assembling this stroller together, you do not have to! Even if you are not a handy person, you can totally use this right away. Everything in the package has been assembled except for the two wheels at the back. But even that is already made easy because it only takes two bolts to screw them on and you are set to go on a quick jog with your kiddo.

    With premium padding and high quality fabric, you wouldn’t think that this stroller belongs to the budget category. As for storage, this one does not disappoint (except for the lack of child tray) as it does have a parent cup holder and a huge basket at the bottom where you can put in snacks and other baby and parent essentials. The canopy ensures that your kid stays safe under the sun plus it has a peek-a-boo window so you can take a glance at what your child is doing even as you are pushing the stroller.

    We still think the other brands are more superior to this one so we are placing this at the fourth position in the list.

    Jeep Brand Adventure All-Terrain Jogging Stroller

    Jeep Brand Adventure All-Terrain Jogging Stroller

    When it comes to price and weight, the Jeep All-Terrain Jogging Stroller is clearly the winner. This one weighs just 21 pounds (a few ounces lighter than the Graco stroller in our list) and is also the cheapest of all the items listed here.

    What else do we love about this lightweight all terrain stroller? First of all, we just love its tires! Somehow it makes us feel comforted that our baby can stay safe and comfortable in their seats no matter how rough the terrain may be. The tires are air-filled and, if you plan on jogging, you can lock the front swivel wheel in place for easier maneuverability.

    In terms of storage, this one does not disappoint. The parent tray comes with two cup holders plus clear lid storage to hold valuables such as keys and a phone. The foam handle is easy and comfortable to grip and it also comes with a safety tether strap that you can put around your wrist to make sure the stroller does not accidentally move forward too fast especially when you go downhill. Meanwhile, the passenger is also provided with a child’s tray that swings up and down for easy loading and unloading. Additionally, there is a huge storage bin under the stroller.

    The stroller makes use of a European style canopy that provides ample protection against the sun. However, parents may not like so much that it does not have a peek-a-boo window so you can’t see the baby inside when you have the sun shade down. The suspension system is also a little inferior compared to the other brands so it might be tougher for the baby inside when you go along rough surfaces.

    For its price, you do get what you deserve but you really cannot expect much from it. We do love that it is compatible with many car seat brands and that it folds compactly in the trunk. Still, we think that this stroller deserves to be placed at the last spot in our list.

    See? Finding the best all-terrain stroller that easily matches your needs and preferences need not be difficult and expensive. Even better is that many of the strollers listed here are compatible with most infant car seat brands so you can transform it into a complete travel system without having to invest in yet another stroller.

    When choosing the perfect stroller, be sure to look through all the pros and cons of each brand before you make your purchase. Then, you can finally show your baby the world and tag them along as you pursue the road to fitness! Happy jogging!
