Reviewers say the three-wheeled, all-terrain Zooper Zydeco jogging stroller is a very good luxury stroller overall, but it ultimately loses the race due to its heavy, 28-pound frame. High points in reviews are seating versatility and smooth ride, along with a large storage compartment, swivel wheels and fully reclining seat. Some parents say the Zooper Zydeco jogging stroller can be more difficult to push with one hand than the Phil & Ted's e3 three-wheeled stroller (*est. $380). Weight and size remain big issues; users suggest the Zooper Zydeco is best left unfolded in a garage or other storage area.

JoggingStroller.com is a nicely organized site that features lots of specifications and some reviews. Overall, editors are pleased with the Zooper Zydeco, citing its locking, front-swivel wheels and its great accessories, including a rain cover and bug screen. Although the Zooper Zydeco is described as the "Cadillac of all-terrain swivel-wheel strollers," this comment cuts two ways, as the editors also say the Zydeco's weight is a major disadvantage.
