Which brand has better prams?
I'm using Combi now. Depends on your needs. For myself, I need something lightweight, so I got the Combi which weighs 4.5kg. Quite sturdy still. Bought it in 2005 and it flew to other countries too.. and survived. Now it been "tortured" daily by me, overloading it with shopping stuffs + Iggy.

I'm using Capella S-707 ... :S
I'm currently using combi, one thing that I dont't like from this stroller is when we hang some stuff at the handle, it easily collapse... it happened twice with my baby girl sitting inside, thank God nothing happen to her. now we are thinking of buying maclaren.
that is because combi is light.. so it has good n bad i suppose.. mine always collaspe too (fall backwards) if i remove my girl from the stroller BEFORE i remove my bags n things hanging on it. but then so far with my girl on it, it never topple down. as long as the things weighs lighter than my girl it will be balanced...
ya .. somtimes i forget lol. blur mummy
i actually have both combi and maclaren.. i bought the combi when my dear daughter was still newborn. after having used it heavily.. it survived pretty well. however, while staying in australia, i bought a maclaren as i've forgotten my combi. i realised the two difference..
combi alto lightweight, it cannot be overloaded. (like majorly overloaded kind =X i torture all my strollers!). if you tend to hang stuff on it, it doesn't feel so nice to push.
maclaren.. very sturdy frame.. very nice to push over rough terrain also.. can be majorly overloaded with 1 toddler sitting on it.
i would def. recommend maclaren for those who has no issue lugging a stroller around.. esp if you have your own transport. while for combi, its good if you feel you do not have strength to manage a heavier stroller.
i will say go for maclaren for those who drive and combi for those who has to take public transport.
I dont drive, so maclaren still ok for me still very light weight for me
Thepinkdot: I like the analysis on the pros & cons of Combi & Maclaren.
I agree with you.
I have both Combi & maclaren & I really like the lightweight of the combi when my hands is so full with the baby & the children running everywhere. But I also like the sturdiness of the maclaren too.
