Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller Review

A few years ago I had purchased an older model jogging stroller on Craigslist and I absolutely hated it! It was hard to maneuver, it was hard to fold, and it definitely wasn't practical as an everyday stroller, which is what I had intended to use it for. Needless to say, I used it maybe a handful of times and then I ended up reselling it because it just wasn't for me. I searched and searched for a jogging stroller that would be more appropriate but I just couldn't find what I was looking for, so I gave up.

Well, not too long ago I decided it was time to walk and jog a little more in the hopes of getting in shape. So there I found myself in the market for a jogging stroller yet again. This time I did my research. I read reviews online, I talked to friends, I made sure I found the perfect jogging stroller for me... That's when I came across the Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller!

The Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller is appropriate for children up to 75 pounds so I knew it would work for Trevor, and after reading all of the specifications I knew it would be perfect for me as well. The Zoom 360 features a swivel front wheel for maximum maneuverability, but it can also be locked in a straight position providing a long, stable wheelbase when you run, or walk on long straight paths.

What's great about the Zoom 360 is the fact that it really caters to both mom and child. For the child, the Zoom 360 offers an extra wide seat with mesh pockets for toys, multi-position reclining seat with extra high ride height, shock absorbing suspension for an extra smooth ride, and an over-sized canopy for extra protection from the sun, wind, and elements.

For mom, the Zoom 360 comes with a neoprene parent organizer that holds two cups (or water bottles) and has a zippered pocket which is great for holding your keys, cell phone, etc... There is also an underneath storage basket which is great if you want to take the stroller with you while you're shopping or simply for storing the diaper bag.

Of course I can't forget to mention the super easy, super compact fold. If you want to take this baby to the park for a nice long walk all you have to do is fold it up, throw it in the trunk, and you're good to go. Also, the Zoom 360 comes with a tire pump which is stored easily in the storage basket so you don't have to worry about getting a flat when you're out and about!

I've had the Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it! It's easy to maneuver, easy to fold, and is definitely appropriate to use as an everyday stroller... Basically it's everything I wanted, and then some! My only complaint would be that it is a tad bulky, and a tad heavy (approx. 27 lbs.) but that does not make me love it any less!

You can purchase the Joovy Zoom 360 Jogging Stroller for $269.99, and for those with little babies, you can also purchase the new car seat adapter system for $39.99 so you can use the Zoom from birth and up.

So glad you found a "stable" jogging stroller! And it comes with a tire pump--although I have never heard of a tire problem with any stroller I suppose if you are jogging it might happen.
