Biggest waste of money
I've been using this pram for 9 months now and I can honestly say I hate it. The "reverse handle" is ridiculous. You can't steer the pram properly if you want your baby facing you because the wheels don't have the range of movement required to be able to steer properly. I ALWAYS have trouble collapsing it, it takes 2 or 3 goes before it will fully collapse and in summer this is the last thing I want to contend with. And the basket underneath is small, impractical and hard to put anything in it. Worst pram. I'm so upset I ever bought it and can't afford a new one.

I love this pram it has everything you need
And the reverse handle makes it easy to see your baby. It comes with a rain cover and snack tray which is super handy.
Willing to get rid of it and buying something else ASAP
I read all the reviews and decided to get this for my first born. Not only is this model quite bulky to handle the basket is also very small and not accessible easily when the baby is in reclined position. The feature of reverse handle , for which mainly I opted for this is also not as good. The stroller gets hard to handle when in reverse mode and most of the times I’m making a fool out of myself trying to hop in and out of lifts or trying to turn somewhere. Absolutely disappointed. I can’t even afford to get another pram however much inconvenient this may seem though.

My dream pram - nearly
I had a Steelcraft Agile for my first child after lots of recommendations about how its easy to put away, folds small and light. Only thing was that the handle wasn't reversible. I got the one with the reversible handle second time around. While I LOVED the Steelcraft Agile, i'm not a fan of the Steelcraft Agile Plus Reverse Handle. Its a bit more bulky and heavier than the agile. I also find the handle a bit flimsy, it still moves a bit after being locked in place. I did look at other reverse handle prams however and this one would still be my...top pick. The others were hard to adjust and hard to fold up - even the staff at toys'r'us couldn't figure it out. Only other improvement it would need is a bigger basket underneath but with the style I don't think it is possible and ability to have the back sit up more upright and be able to go all the way down flat. Came with LOTS of accessories which was AWESOME! I do find its a bit hard to manouver when in reverse mode.
Easy to fold, drives well on all surfaces and not much effort to push. can be on the heavy side and when the handle is facing the opposite way can be hard to steer. the reversible handle is a great feature though. the fact that you only have to do 2 steps to fold the whole thing up is great.
Overall good pram i love the reverse handle and my toddler loves the drink tray. It folds down easy and is easy to put in and out of the car. The adjustable handle me being tall is perfect for my height. My only announce is that the storage under the pram could be a bit bigger or shaped better
Easy to fold up, not to big. Easy to push. Nice and stylish. Definitely wouldn’t get any other pram! My bub seems to be nice and comfortable in it. With the bit that goes over the lags on the pram stays nice and warm for the windy days. Definitely 5 star rating!
Great Pram - on the heavy side
We have the agile plus and think it’s great quality for the price
-folds up easily
-denim design gender neutral
-love the reversible handle - so many friends have envied this feature
-heavy (i did some damage post c section lifting it once folded)
-wheels get stuck sometimes
Apples for apples
This pram oozes practically whilst also being lightweight making it a great choice for travelling.
The stand out feature is one simple latch to open this pram and one button to collapse it.
Overall design wise it has storage options however these are not generous for an avid shopper who requires ample room for baby needs, groceries and other purchases.
Super easy to unfold with the press of a button and quite light too. Easy to use and steer. Best part being the travel adapter clip your steelcaft capsule straight into it.
A little difficult to sit up and recline but nothing major.
Used for 7 months now and haven't had a problem.
Good pram but bulky
This pram does feel like you are maneuvering a truck at times but it os easy once you know how.
Its not easy to carry or fold away and seems to take up alot of space in the boot.
However I do like this pram and I think once others get used to its bulkyness they will too.
I am happy with the build and the quality is A1
This is perfect pram for any age
It is very comfortable and easy and suits for all ages.We can down it completely and we can also keep it straight.It is also easy to carry and easy to fold.Great Quality.I am so happy with this product by steelcraft.It also comes with most accessories for pram.GREAT HELPFUL.MOSTLY RECOMMENDED.LOVE STEELCRAFT.
Best pram ever
Love it! Super easy to pack up or pull.out. no pulling the seat off to put down. Bassinet clips on no worries. Sits upright or lays down. Seriously the best pram without the bulkiness! I love it. Might not have got the green again as it shows the slobber stains
We had this pram for 2 years and was pretty good throughout. Only trouble was the brake wouldn’t fully disengage sometimes.
Steering was easy, folded up well to fit in the boot. The quality was there but probably not worth the $700 we spent.
Pretty decent pram but wait till it’s on sale
Decent price, easy to collapse and store, not too heavy, but sturdy, ok to maneuver. You're supposed to get it with the baby capsule/carseat, I kinda regret not getting it now because it's good to be able to keep an eye on the little one when travelling. Make sure you also get the pram liner for vomits, difficult to clean when vomit soaks through. Not very much storage room under the pram
No need to wake up sleeping baby
It’s great to manoeuvre, easy to fold and lighter as well as narrower than some other brands. I could got through doors some of my friends couldn't. But the best part is the capsule. No need to wake up a sleeping baby. Just transfer from car to pram or into the house. Love it! Still great for my second bubs
Great pram all round
Light pram, narrower than some so I often find I can fit through doorways that other peaks can’t. Folds easily. Manoeuvres well on various terrain. Allows you to clip the capsule/carrier on top so you don’t have to wake bub to get them in/out of the car. Good quality. Cover washes well. Decent storage under pram. Fully adjustable seat recline.
Love this stroller
Reverse handle stroller is very convenient to keep an eye on the baby The stroller is easy to maneuver and easy to fold and pack in the car. The wheels are steady and easy to push around, not too bulky, just right for the shopping center or light walks outside.
Love the quality and design
I purchased this for my baby after my friend told me that she is happy with her Steelcraft pram. I loved the design and the reverse handle feature to keep a constant watch on my baby during long walks. I think that this pram is reliable, good design, the baby sleeps int eh pram and is comfortable overall. I am happy with my choice and would buy this again if I were on the market for a new pram.
Improved and perfect
I used to own a steel craft reverse handle with my first baby a few years ago and it was very hard to maneuver, the wheels were going everywhere. Everything else was great. This seems to be a much-improved model. It has all the best features of the previous one and the wheels are fixed and absolutely perfect as well. I am so happy with the pram I take it out every day. I would recommend this pram to every mother.
