best umbrella stroller?

well, i have decided to sell my huge heavy stroller and get an umbrella style instead. i do have a little one from costco, but it is too short for me to use comfortably, let alone for dh to use.

any suggestions?

I personally LOVED the Chicco umbrella stroller we had because it reclined. It was lightweight, perfect arm length for me (I'm 5'8") nice basket for storage and canopy. It was so much less expensive then a Maclaren. Plus, it sold very quickly on Craigslist when we were done using it.

Wow- just looked at that website for the combi. That is an expensive umbrella stroller! I guess I'm blessed to be a bit on the short side. usually DH lets me push the stroller b/c it is too short for him. I got my umbrella stroller from the thrift store for $5. Just picked up a backup for those times DH leaves with the stroller in the car. Found it at a garage sale- very nice with a storage bag with cloth cup hoder on the back and a canopy... barely used. I gladly gave $10 for it. Anyway- I love Umbrella strollers. Perfect for busses. With the three kids, I wear the baby, the eldest walks and the 2 1/2 yo I have walk most of the time- she wants to. The stroller is backup for when we need to book it to the bustop or when she gets tuckered out or unruly.

thanks ladies for the suggestions, i was actually looking at the combi strollers at toysrus, and they seem pretty good, and now that's been confirmed :)

It took me such a long time deciding on which umbrella stroller was good enough and wow it was hard work but decided on the chico umbrella stroller and i love it.

I agree I have a Combi Flare and I just LOVE it! Very light and folds so small, handles are tall enough for hubby too
