“The Indie can be used from birth all the way up to 50 pounds without any additional attachments. Even if you don’t plan to run with your baby, you’ll appreciate the air-filled tires (a pump is included) and easy maneuverability. The single front wheel can swivel, making tight turns on city sidewalks a breeze, or be locked into position when you’re jogging.
For kids who can’t quit their stroller naps, the back reclines nearly flat and the footrest can pop up, creating a cozy spot on the go. Plus, the top window’s magnetic flap makes it easy to check in quietly. Eco-minded parents will also love that the fabrics are made from recycled plastic, and the company claims that they’ve kept an impressive half a million water bottles out of landfills since 2011.”

Bumbleride Indie Stroller : If ever there was an eco-friendly, sustainable stroller, it was the Bumbleride. Made from 100% recycled PET, Bumbleride has kept over half a million water bottles out of landfills since 2011. To color their fabrics, they also use an innovative solution-dye process that conserves approximately 25-40 gallons of water per stroller. And if that weren’t enough, their strollers are PVC & phthalate free, made without fire retardants or polyurethane foam, and their fabrics are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class I certified to be free from harmful chemicals. Plus, the Indie has air-filled tires and a UPF 45+ canopy. We got this stroller to use around our neighborhood (more like a jogging stroller) as it’s a bit more heavy-duty than the UPPAbaby, but a super smooth ride nonetheless.
The Independent in the United Kingdom recently shared an article rating the best jogging strollers. Here are some of the highlights from their review:
Ideally, choose one with 16 inch wheels, a five point harness, a hand operated break, a fixed front wheel and a wrist loop. Also make sure your baby is six months old and able to hold their head up. In fact, some manufactures saying the baby should be at least a year old.
Be mindful that this isn’t like normal running – there will be increased pressure on your arms and shoulders that you’ll need to get used to. Also, be aware that these new buggies are big, even when folded, so be sure to have somewhere to store it.
Bumbleride Indie Jogging Stroller
The Bumbleride Indie comes in at a close second, thanks to it being nippy, lightweight, good looking and easy to steer.
This looks fabulous and offers a comfy ride, largely thanks to the soft and gorgeous fabrics. It’s lightweight and nippy and the steering is unbeatable. The enormous shopping basket and canopy and easy fold mechanism are also in its favour, although the recline is a little fiddly.
