Is it worth the $177.50 (including shipping) that I ultimately paid? I want to know, too, and I probably won't have any kind of definitive answer until, say, September or October. Or possibly later. I'm anticipating this only being useful for the first year of A.'s life, since there is some agreement in comments and reviews that bigger babies/toddlers do not fit into this thing (even using the seat, as opposed to using this as a travel system). And it isn't light.
I'm pretty sure I feel better about this than I would have if I'd bought it for, say, the commodity price ($270) or the MSRP ($350).
I'm probably going to hold off on buying a MacLaren Techno XLR. If the Britax works out well, I could buy one of the cheaper MacLarens that reclines after the kid grows out of the Britax. The odd case would be going to WDW, in which case I might want a compromise T. fits/A. fits stroller. Next up: a Buggy Board.
