The Best Out There!!!
I have reviewed every single stroller out there. I have spent hours testing and trying out the plethora of strollers that exist today, and the Orbit System is, hands down, the best!! I love the compact one-hand fold feature...just one twist on the bar and the frame simply clicks shut. Wow!!! What's also great is that the frame fits in the trunk of the car (VW Jetta TDI) unlike the "mother-of-bulkiness" a.k.a. Graco Travel System (for example). The paparazzi shield is ingenius! It helps protect against unwanted sun and people who just have the uncontrollable NEED to touch newborn babies, while strolling in the store...if you know what I mean. For my needs, the diaper bag/cargo pod could be bigger and have some compartments added, but for necessities it'll do; today, I use an added diaper backpack and just hang it on one of the biggie. The 360 degree rotating feature is wonderfully convenient, esp. when I'm going for walks in the neighborhood, with the sun shining in a different direction every time I make a turn around the block; one simple turn and "Presto!" baby is out of the sun! My husband loves the adjustable handles, which have 3 height adjustment options; this stroller is great for tall people. The ride is soooo smooth, requiring only one hand, if needed. There are no unstable wheels. The suspension on the front, I guess, helps a little with shock absorption, but I don't notice that much of a difference when going over a bump. Hey, a bump is a bump. After initially inflating the two rear air-filled tires, I only needed to pump one additional time in the entire 6 months of owning this item. Most importantly, car seat is super safe and comfortable for my little one. I have had now problem with tangled straps. She absolutely loves her Orbit seat! No complaining, she is just smiles and coos, when she goes on her excursions... Over all, I recommend this over any stroller. It is pricey, but think about it. If you plan on having more than one child, you can purchase multiple plastic framed strollers or a safe & sturdy metal frame one, which will last with ALL of the children. P.S.= It has a great resale value! So, you even get some of your money back. All I can say is get this item. You won't regret it. Just get your spiel prepared because you'll get so many people asking about how awesome your stroller is and where you got it :)

Definitely not worth the $$$
I, too, like so many parents out there did my research. And, the net of it is, this stroller is not worth the money AND is impractical.

1) it is heavy and cumbersome which is the LAST thing you want went you are carrying around a wiggly, squirmy, sleeping, etc. baby.

2) it costs and arm and a leg. do yourself and your baby a favor and buy something less expensive (and better) and take the money you saved and put it toward something else.

I eventually went with the basic Graco Snugride carseat and their "snap and go" style stroller. It's easy, relatively light weight, and about 1/5 the price of this silly "system." Also, with all the money you save you can buy another stroller for when baby gets bigger - one that really makes sense - maybe a jogger or a City Mini or a MacLaren, etc.

So far so good!
We really like this system, but still haven't officially used it, because our baby hasn't arrived. We really liked it in the store and it was great to find it for $200 less then in the store. Very lightweight and easy to use!

Very Satisfied
I love this car seat/stroller combo and have gotten so many compliments. My favorite feature is the swival. It makes the car seat really easy to get in the car, simply place it on the base and then rotate into position.

I also like that I can use the seat without the base.

The only negative I have is that the seat is very big. I have a Mazda 3 and fitting the infant seat in the car makes for squishy seating in the front. This does not seem to be an issue with my sister's Honda Accord, so I think it is just an issue if you have a small compact car. Also - it does not fit on an airline seat if the seat in front is reclined.

Overall, I highly recommend this seat. The flexible carry strap, ability to rotate, and the fact that the baby is so deep in the seat makes it a great system.

LOVE the Orbit!
We LOVE our Orbit and can't recommend it highly enough! We agonized for hours and hours about which stroller to buy, and we definitely made the right choice.


Once I saw how easy the Orbit was to set up and breakdown, it was a no-brainer. You literally pop the infant car seat right onto the base in the car and then onto the stroller. To breakdown the stroller base, you just twist the handle with one hand, and it fully collapses. The stroller base is also very light, so you can easily lift it with one hand. It doesn't take up very much room in the car either. It is also VERY convenient that you can turn the car seat towards you if you want to take your baby in and out of the car.


The coolest part of the Orbit is you can swivel the seat in any direction, so the sun is NEVER in your babies eyes on a walk. Many of my friends with the Bugaboo or the Bob have to safety pin a burp cloth on the top of the sun shade to try to block the sun. I simply swivel the car seat away from the sun, and my problem was solved. The windshield also comes in very handy since I live in a city that is pretty cold and breezy.


I can't tell you how many comments I get when I am out and about with this stroller. Is is super sleek, and modern looking. It is also very thin, so you can maneuver in and out of stores easily.


I always feel really safe with my baby protected in the cocoon shape of the Orbit car seat. It also has impeccable safety ratings which is clearly important to any mom.


My baby loves when I put him in his car seat and never complains! This leads me to believe he was very comfy. :) It is also great that he is perched up a bit so he can see what is going on during our walks.


The only negative that I find with the car seat is the weight. As my baby is getting bigger and heavier, the car seat is getting pretty heavy to carry with him in it. However, all the positives help outweigh this factor.
