What experts liked
This Baby Trend jogging stroller weighs 28 pounds and it has a multi-position strap recline on the padded seat. An adjustable 5-point safety harness grows with your child and the top of the seat has a mesh enclosure when reclined, which adds some peace of mind.

The Baby Trend Xcel is equipped with a wide, curved handle that’s made of soft rubber for comfort and grip. It has a rugged steel frame, so you won’t have to worry about its ability to endure multiple outdoor excursions, and its footrest features reflectors for visibility.

To help parents steer their baby’s stroller when walking, the Baby Trend Xcel’s swivel wheel easily allows you to turn. However, when you feel like going for a run, it can be locked into place. This helps prevent the stroller from accidentally turning as you run, and causing you and your baby to crash.

Most premium jogging strollers have adjustable handlebars for parents of different heights. Unfortunately, this Xcel jogger doesn’t have this feature.
