Model 2017 - good pram
This is my first pram for my first child and I bought the mountain buggy swift second hand.
I chose this pram because it’s not sold at an outrageous price point like other pram brands, it’s compact enough, easy to manoeuvre and versatile.
I am pretty happy with it. I like the option of the carrycot plus which allows to have a parent facing seat until bub is ready to face the other way.
The only problem is : the first model of the carrycot plus is poorly designed.
The canopy is too short and does not do well in terms of sun protection.

Good form factor
Good form factor, folds easily, plenty of addons/attachments, excellent brake system.. well built pram for the price. Always been a happy mountain buggy user, although recently the quality has gone bit down, but acceptable still.
Purchased in July 2020 for $799.00.
Excellent second hand value!
We bought two second hand Mountain Buggy Swifts over the past 5 years. The old Made in New Zealand ones are like tanks. We took ours (2009 model) overseas to China and has survived. I did a few short runs there, but nothing crazy. We bought a second one (I think 2014 model) when we moved back to OZ for $10 on Gumtree (we also needed to get another inner tube and tyre for it). It's held up really well for longer runs over paved roads and sidewalks.
These are heavy and aren't as compact as some, but our experience tells us that these are pretty ...
Compact and handy pram
My wife and I looked at quite a few options and listen to friends feedback.
In the end we got hit Mountain Buggy swift as it was great for all our needs. 3 wheeler, easy to manage and steer. Great storage underneath.
Really happy and Bub is happy too.
The only note is that the tip cover fades after 2yrs but can buy a new top for $60

Bad quality product, shocking service
This is my second stroller bought by family member for travelling as my usual stroller (mother's care from kmart or bunnings, highly recommend even though it's half the price of mountain buggy ). The reason is that it's smaller. And it is. Small, flimsy, everything seems just to hold on before falling apart. Good luck buying accessories online. Overpriced and it's impossible to contact anyone. They operate under a different name in Australia there are no offices here so if you need any help they just send you to the shop where you got your p...roduct to deal with it. I shop online a lot and because of this would never buy anything from them. I ordered an adapter last week a few days later email that they received my order. No shipping information. You get confirmation instantly not days later. I wonder when they're going to send it and if I'll get it this year. I hope so because it's for a capsule and the baby is already 2 months old. I just saw that i was charged a $7 dollars overseas transaction fee by them. There was no mention of that when i was checking out. Outrageous
Purchased in January 2018.
Does the job
I purchased a second pram after the mountain buggy, as although it is great for walking and running, it is missing a lot of key features for easy every day use. Positives are that I find it super easy to manoeuvre, it is very compact and easy to put up and down, and does great on rough terrain. Negatives are that the rear facing seat that comes with it is CRAP, I wouldn’t even bother with it. The pram in general looks very cheap and the way parts such as the canopy attach is flimsy. The trade off with the compact size is that the basket is tiny...- I couldn’t even fit my baby bag in it. The bassinet canopy was terrible and again the quality of the product looks and feels poor. I must say it was a great pram to take on holidays and initially I used the car capsule with adaptor and the pram was great for this purpose. I wouldn’t spend the money if I knew what I now know and would have invested in a cheap second hand three wheeler for running.
Purchased in September 2018 at Mountain buggy online for $600.00.
Am I missing something?? Great pram but getting too small for my 2 year old??
I feel like I’m missing the brief here. We have had the swift for over 2 years now and have absolutely loved it but now my daughter is 2 and a half years old she’s getting too small for it!! She is a tiny 2 year old as well she still fits into size 1’s.. anyone have any advice on this otherwise I am going to have too upgrade as we can’t find a skate board compact enough to go at the base either and we are due with our 3rd child soon.
Pram is excellent. WE live in Sydney and you need somehting that goes up the mountain pretty well. This does mountains, hilly areas, rough footpaths etc beautifully. Washes well and is super easy to fold to put into the car. I have had this pram for years and am reluctant to get rid of it even though my child has outgrown it !!
Years of fun
We love our Mountain Buggy’s . They’re tuff durable and can tell a tale or two .
Highly recommend them for anyone but particularly if you don’t always walk on smooth city paving .
Perfect upgrade from a baby pusher to take the kids right through their toddler years
Easy to clean !
Tires broke twice
I had this parm for about 5 years now when we had baby no 1. After using it for a while, I found the pram is a bit heavy to lift up and down the car. And the tires have been broken twice, I had to spend extra money to buy parts. Overall it is a ok product, certainly not the best one, I won’t choose it again.
This is by far the best!
I did a lot of research before buying this for my second child, and I can say it has changed my life.
I tried a lot of different Strollers with my first child and was never able to find one we all liked.
I deviated from my beloved mountain buggy when my daughter was 2 and bought a Phil & teds smart buggy as a friend had one and it seemed small and compact - worst mistake of my life. After a harrowing 6 months of hellish outtings (that’s going to be explained in a phil & teds review) I rebought the swift and I will never deviate from it a...gain. I am so relaxed in the shops now and my daughter has stopped her tantrums! She is so happy in this stroller and I can steer it without thought! Do not be put off by it’s long profile - it is sooo easy to steer (even loaded with bags I can do it single handed). And if you ever go outdoors the buggy is a dream on grass and roads. I love the pump up tyres. I love the sun shade. I love how easy it is to clean and fold. And I am able to put the whole thing unfolded in the back of my Land Rover and manoeuvre easily through crowded shopping centres. You can tell this stroller was created with some actual though behind it. I can not recommend enough. But any brand cot, any brand nappies, any brand high chair but only buy a mountain buggy stroller!
Good pram for everyday
This is a trust worthy and reliable pram that I have used or years. It’s gorten me through two kids. Easy to manoeuvre and fold up.
Only watch out is that there are visible signs of rust. It doesn’t impact the use but bugs me.
Really happy with the quality and recommend to friends
6 years & still going strong!
We have owned the same Mountain buggy swift for 6 years now. We have had the tyres changed 3 times, which I think is pretty good for the amount of walking and running we do.
Its the perfect size to fit in the car boot, to walk down shop isles and for travelling on buses. So many others prams are too wide. Never had an issue with this. Its comfortable, fits the shopping in the bottom and the rain cover and extra coffee cup holder is a must. Highly recommend!
Bought a different pram first but were not happy then after a lot of research bumped into this. This has been really good. Been using it for 5 months now. Took it with us to Melbourne, brisbane then Singapore trip and it’s still not a scratch on it. It’s perfect, steady, practical. Love it.
Such a cool buggy
Love this, have been using for 6 months and its just soo good. I am soo pleased I did the research and choose this one. Great for running and off road and really comfortable for bubs who always falls sleep in it! would highly recommend to all mums out there.
Questions & Answers
I have a tall nearly 3 yr old and looking for a pram that will last us a it longer then our current pram. Does this have a high seat height?
I’m after a pram/stroller to use around our farm on dirt roads and across rough grassy paddocks that offers plenty of sun protection. Is the swift suitable or should I be looking at one with bigger wheels like the Terrain?
Bigger wheels would be better. That said, if someone's giving away an old Swift at a bargain price, I wouldn't knock it back - it'd do the job, just not as well/smoothly.
Hi Everyone, We have just bought a 2nd hand Mountain Buggy Swift that comes with Bassinet, but need to buy a baby capsule for the pram. What is the capsule that is compatible with the pram & what adapters do we need to get ? Thanks for your help. Jodi
