Let me first start by stating wow. This travel system does offer your little one many things. Will it make life easier for your family or not?

The stroller is suitable from birth with the carrycot up to 9 months. Most carrycots are up 6 months and then that’s it. Depending on your baby it can be less or even a bit more.

As you know not all children grow the same. Let’s talk more about the carrycot below. The pushchair only offers rear-facing to your child up to 25kg.

The seat offers adjustable positions. Meaning you can adjust the seat to accommodate the baby’s current situation. If they want to sleep, play and sit upright to have a good view.

Besides that, the set also has a backrest. Allowing your young child to lay down their body and lie flat as much as possible. This position also offers privacy and makes it easy to relax and sleep.

Good for those summer days or during winter. In addition to that is the footrest or leg rest as it is also called. A place for your little one to place those tiny legs and feet.

It will be like sleeping in their bed. How cosy is that? The canopy or hood has a sun cover or shade. Again, offers protection from the sun’s UV.

The canopy also has pockets that enable you to store your items. Such as your keys or vaseline. Important things that can be needed on the way.

A peek boo window is included so that you can see your baby or toddler. Because the seat only faces forward a feature like this is useful.

More Features.

On the seat, you will find a 5 point harness system with chest pads. These are adjustable to accommodate many babies. The seat offers a ventilation system.

Meaning the fabrics are easy to breathe near. Offer a cool and cosy environment during summer days and winter days. Any season if you think about it. Moving on to the frame you will also find many features.

The frame has an adjustable handlebar. Super useful for any parent. Wherever you are going it can come in handy, especially to a pushchair like this. Where the journey is “endless”.

Moving on to why the pushchair is called “terrain pushchair”. This Mountain Buggy offers 2 rear wheels. One wheel is 12″ air-filled and the other is 16″ air-filled.

You are wondering what that can mean. Well, it means the wheels are punctured free and very steady and can handle rough grounds. Hence the name terrain wheels.

The one front wheel has 3 modes. The wheels have a lock on the back, front and swivel. Easy to push and take with you when pushing through many narrow streets.

If you are a traveller or a city person then the buggy may come in handy. All suspension wheels, seat liner and a one system brake controlled through the handlebar are other features.

When it comes to the folding part. You only need to use one hand it folds. It stands on its own when folded. The shopping basket underneath can take up to 10kg weight.

It has a zip and two pockets. Store in there whatever you like to. The Terrain pushchair is available in two colours through this link.

Accessories.

Moving on to the carrycot, the age suitability it’s from birth up to 6 months. The cot can be used as an overnight sleeping place for your newborn and baby.

Manufactured in a way to have 3 sets of features or useability. The lie-flat mode and a mode that can be adjustable to help those babies with reflux and a rear face mode.

It has an easily breathable mattress and all of the fabrics offer a cosy place for your baby to be in. The carrycot can be converted into a seat from 6 months old.

This seat gives you the option for your baby to face you up to 4 years of age. The overnight sleep is only for newborns up to 6 months.

The cot like seat is truly amazing. Giving these options to choose from. The cot offers a winter insert for cold days. The Mountain Buggy matches with accessories you can buy separately.

It comes with 2 bottle holders for a child and parent. Your afternoon fluids won’t be missed or morning whenever you take your walks.

Its also compatible with a car seat, which enables it to be a 3in1 Travel System. Always better in my humble opinion. Although you will need to buy adapters. View a review I did on fancy changing bags for a start.

Cons.

  • It’s quite expensive. With just the pushchair and carrycot. If you are going to buy it all then you will need to spend a lot of money. Highly anticipated, a quality pram like this one.
  • Available in few colours. It might not the colours you want. Colours in a pushchair do matter for many parents. I included.
  • The wheels are very big. If you live in a tiny area the pushchair can be hard to store. Wheels are not removable.
  • No UPF50+ canopy. Not water-resistant.
  • Can’t be converted to a double pushchair.
  • No rain cover.

The Terrain Pushchair vs Other Popular Pushchairs.

The buggy is amazing and offers many things, but is it one of a kind or? I will only compare the terrain pushchair with other pushchairs. Not the carrycot included, but I will mention it.

For this comparison, I chose the Oyster 3 Pram and The Silver Cross Wayfarer. Although these pushchairs differ they do have the same quality and are from top brands.

Terrain Pushchair vs Oyster 3 Pram.

The looks are not the same because the Oyster pram looks like a normal standard pram with 4 wheels, while the terrain pushchairs look more like a jogging stroller with 3 wheels, they have the same purpose. These are the similarities:

  • Travel system convertible. Both 2in1 and 3in1.
  • Offer amazing wheels and tyres.
  • Reclining positions.
  • 5 point harness system with chest pads.
  • Ventilated system.
  • Footrest.
  • Adjustable handlebar.
  • Adjustable canopy.
  • One system brake.
  • Easy fold.

Many features are similar indeed despite having different looks. The Oyster 3 offers both forward and rear-facing, the seat offers to lie flat position from birth, UVP50+ on the hood, sun visor and an insect net.

The pram is cheaper because it’s a single stroller, but with a carrycot, it might be the same price or a bit cheaper. As you can see above the terrain pushchair offers features as:

Reversible seat liner, bigger canopy with pockets and peek a boo. Bigger basket with additional features, backrest and it’s compatible with a carrycot that offers amazing features and comfort for baby, and toddler.

The wheels are more amazing and offer all-terrain tyres. It’s more than the Oyster 3. Without a doubt, the Terrain pushchair takes the cake.

Well, this is my humble opinion after analysing both, but many may differ. The Oyster is lighter and offers a compact fold for those who need it.

Terrain Pushchair vs Wayfarer Pram.

Just like the one above these also look different, but both are quality strollers, so they will offer some similar features. These are:

  • Suitable up to 25kg.
  • Reclining positions.
  • Reversible seat liner.
  • Sunshade.
  • Large basket.
  • Excellent tyres and wheels.
  • Travel System convertible.
  • Easy fold.
  • Big canopy.
  • Adjustable handlebar.
  • 5 point harness system.

The difference is that the Wayfarer offers both rear and forward-facing with the seat, UPF50+ water resistance on the canopy, more specious seat with apron, quality fabrics on the seat and carrycot, ventilated hood and compact when folded.

The pushchair is also cheaper. Both are travel systems. The Terrain offers a better wheel system and tyres, a quality carrycot, ventilation on the seat instead of hood, etc.

What makes the Terrain buggy stand out are the wheels and tyres and also carrycot. It does offer some additional features such as the backrest and leg rest.

The Wayfarer has leather bars and it’s more compact fold than the latter. It can be hard to decide but the terrain pushchair looks more promising.

However, just like the Oyster pram, it depends on your lifestyle. A lighter stroller that is compact can come in handy. If you don’t go anywhere or don’t visit different places then the Wayfarer is best suited for you.

The choice is yours.

The Perfect Duo.

These two items or products make a perfect pair. The carriages complete each other. The carrycot is not like many carrycots and the pushchair on its own offers your toddler many things.

Together the products are one of the perfect duos. Good for those parents who’re always on the road, and love to have adventures with their families.

Hence, the name. Terrain Pushchair.

What do you think? Can this mountain buggy be the one for you and your family? What are your thoughts on the other strollers I listed?

  1. To have a buggy that can be used on all terrains, and specially can go on the beach, is important to me. If you can then combine the carrycot and the pushchair and have just one set of wheels, it makes it ideal for me. The fact that the Terrain buggy system is also compatible with a car seat, is even better. The only con for me with the Terrain buggy, is the price, but if your budget allows it, it seems like a brilliant travel system.

    • Hey LineCowley. That’s the only con for many parents. The price and these buggies are often expensive, but sometimes it can be worth it for your baby and you.

  2. Hi Fatoumata. Thank you for another great review. We love traveling but its not easy to organize trip with small kid. But this Mountain Buggy seems as a great solution. Its not cheap but gives great freedom and design is really nice. Its a shame that there is no rain  cover but still looking forward to test it in practice.

  3. Hey,

    I am already 59 years old and have 2 daughters of 33 and 34 years old… I am also the grandfather of 5 grandchildren.

    This site is very interesting for expectant parents who are looking for the right, durable material and prams are extremely important. (Both for the parents and the child). In my time we couldn’t find any websites that provided information about this…

    Furthermore, the site is well expanded and the questions and comments are very instructive!

    Keep it up…

    Well done!
