Ease of use, comfort and convenience
The seat of the Phil and teds sport stroller reclines to multiple positions, including a flat position that is baby/newborn ready. When it is reclined, there is plenty of ventilation provided for your child. With the help of the zip feature that allows you to unzip the fabric, this seat is deeper when reclined than those of many strollers. The fabric is very tough and good quality.
The sport stroller can become a double stroller with the attachment of the double kit that is sold separately. The second seat just like the main stroller seat adjust to multiple positions. The second seat gets in the way of the storage basket and the baby in this seat can have access to the contents of the basket. However, it is not too hard to get things in and out of the stroller when the second seat is attached.
With the right adapters, the Phil and Ted sport stroller frame can receive a carrycot to form a pram stroller. It can also receive a car seat or two to make a travel system stroller. The double kit can be used in the parent facing mode on the regular stroller seat. This mode allows your baby to face you and interact with you while you push this stroller

Things to note
The Phil and teds sport stroller is not a real sport stroller. By this I mean, it is not made to endure intense running and jogging. It is ok for the light jogger. It has big wheels but they are not enough to counter the amount of shaking, bouncing and bumping generated by intense exercise especially on a rough terrain.
Sport strollers typically have fixed front wheels and suspension systems to make the ride smooth for your little passenger. If you are looking for a sport stroller, check out the Thule Glide, Thule Urban Glide and Bob Sport Utility strollers.

The slim design of this stroller makes it great for fitting through many places but it might become small for your child faster.
