  • Expensive

The Mountain Buggy Swift is perhaps the least talked about of the Mountain Buggy Stroller line. In fact, reviews of this buggy are difficult to come by. Those that do exist are positive, however. The Swift is very similar to the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle and includes several of the same features. Like the Urban Jungle, the Swift has a 77-pound weight capacity. It has the same large storage basket, cupholder and a stellar adjustable canopy with a sun visor. The wheelbase of the Swift is narrower than the Urban Jungle. Plus, at 21 pounds, the Swift weighs 3 pounds less. The Swift, say reviewers, is better suited for parents who want a versatile, lightweight stroller that can still handle rough terrain. Reviewers note that because of the narrow wheelbase, the stroller is not as well suited to be used as a jogger.

The most comprehensive review comes from BabyGizmo.com. The one other formal review is from StrollerReviewGuide.com, but this site does not clearly state how or when the stroller was tested. Very few owner reviews exist for the Mountain Buggy Swift, though those that do are positive, hailing the stroller's narrow-yet-durable frame.

Stroller Review Guide features reviews for many of the top selling and performing strollers, but there is little transparency regarding who the reviews are written by or how the strollers were tested.
