Durability

Durability

When it comes to your jogger, you want to make sure that you are getting something strong and durable, especially since it is something you are going to be putting a precious life it. You do not want it falling apart in the middle of a run which can cause injury to yourself or baby. That is not something that you will have to worry about with the Graco FastAction. Customers agree that it has a decent life span. You might see that they have air-filled tires and start to worry, but they seem to be puncture proof, proving that they are going to last you a long time before they wear down and need to be replaced. When taking the stroller out for you jog, it is nice to know that you are not going to have to worry about stumbling on a rock or stick and poking a hole in the tire.

It is not only the tires that make this stroller a great choice. The frame itself is strong and robust, allowing you to run for miles without fear or wear and tear. Of course, when it comes to the fabric inside the Graco itself, you are going to want to ensure that you are taking care of and cleaning it correctly to get a decent amount of longevity out of it. It is vital to keep in mind that you cannot machine wash the seat. It is recommended that you wipe it down with mild soap, trying not to soak the materials all the way through and you do not want to use bleach or detergent.
Value

Value

The FastAction jogger might seem like it has a high cost, but jogging strollers, in general, are pretty costly. This one is actually on the low end of the spectrum when compared to some of the other ones on the market. With the exceptional durability and fantastic quality of the stroller, it is well worth the money you will pay for it. You are going to get everything you need and more from a jogger without paying an arm and a leg for it.
Size

Size

The Graco is not a small stroller, it is roomy enough for the child to stay comfortable and for you to have a decent amount of storage space for all the essentials, but it is also relatively lightweight and easy to maneuver. The stroller itself, without the car seat (or child), weighs a measly 30 pounds. It is lightweight enough that it is easy to push, but it is solid enough to make sure baby and parent are safe along the way. There is only one size available in this stroller, but since it easily fits the Graco infant seats, it makes it perfect for all children, up to 50 pounds.
Safety

Safety

One thing that is essential when purchasing a jogging stroller is the safety of both your child and the one pushing the stroller. The Graco FastAction is loaded with safety features to keep you both safe while on the go. It has reflectors built right in so you can be sure to stay visible even when you are heading out in low light conditions. The stroller is mainly designed for heading out on sunny days, with the extra large canopy for sun protection, but you are absolutely not restricted to those conditions as the stroller can stand up to a lot.

The large air-filled tires help keep you safe and secure when you are jogging, making sure that you will not come to a sudden and jerking stop if you hit a stick or rock, you can simply sail right over it without hesitation. The fact that the tires are not easily punctured also helps keep you safe, as getting a flat tire away from home might not be the best thing.

The stroller has a convertible three to five-point harness to keep baby safe and secure in the seat while you are heading out, no need to worry about your child falling out of the chair, or climbing out, while they are being jostled around as you go. If you have a tiny one, the Graco infant seat securely snaps into place with a simple one-step attachment so you can ensure the seat stays locked in place.
Style

Style

You will get a simple and sophisticated look with this jogger that consumers love. It not only looks fantastic but it gives you the versatility you need to smooth transition between activities. There are a couple of color options, although not many, so you can pick something that you and baby will like the best. It comes in Gotham (back and grey), azalea (black and pink), or tangerine (black and orange). Some reviewers mentioned they would have liked more color options, but it did not seem to be a deal breaker and customers purchased and loved it anyway.
