|Product Name:||Chicco Activ3 Jogging Stroller|
Chicco really stepped up their game with the Chicco Activ3 jogging stroller. Not only is this stroller affordable, it comes with a ton of awesome features. When I was trying out this stroller, I not only used it for jogging, but also for everyday use. With two buttons on the handle bar to lock the front wheel and to slow down the stroller, you can easily use the Chicco Activ3 stroller for any activity! Read on if this stroller sounds something your family needs!
Features and Pros
Super XXL Canopy. The canopy coverage for the Chicco Activ3 jogging stroller is excellent. It has a zipper that allows you to extend the canopy coverage even more. The canopy has two peekaboo windows for you to use depending on how extended the canopy is.
Adjustable Padded 5 Point Harness. For comfort, Chicco’s 5 point harness system is padded. I didn’t have any complains on the 5 point harness system as I found it easy to use.
One Handed Recline. The seat for this jogging stroller is well padded and comfortable. Reclining the seat is also super easy as it requires only one hand. The stroller’s seat can be reclined to an almost flat position which makes napping and having diaper change sessions much easier.
Easy To Fold. The stroller is easy to fold – it uses a fairly unique folding mechanism whereby you have to twist the handle bar and lift up. Once folded, the stroller is pretty compact, measuring 37.5” x 15” x 25”.
Adjustable Handle Bar. The handle bar for this Chicco stroller can be adjusted anywhere between 40 and 45 inches when measured from the ground. This is definitely a plus if you and your partner have significant height differences.
Car Seat Compatible. The stroller comes with a removable arm bar designed to attach Chicco KeyFit infant car seats.
Rubber, Flat-Free Wheels. One other feature that caught my eye was that its wheels are made of rubber, and are therefore flat-free. Compared to pneumatic air-filled tires, this is nice given you don’t have to regularly remember to check the air pressure of your stroller’s wheels.
Adjustable Suspension. Another main feature of this Chicco Activ3 jogging stroller is that it has an adjustable suspension system. The suspension system has two settings – one for rough, uneven terrains, and the other for smooth terrains.
Parking Brake and Front Wheel Lock Controls on Handle Bar. This is definitely one of the unique features of this Chicco stroller. To activate the parking brake and the front wheel lock, just push one of the two buttons on the handle bar! This is extremely convenient as you don’t have to bend and manually lock the front wheels.
Safety Wrist Strap. Like most jogging strollers, this stroller has a wrist strap which is a feature that is nice to have for safety reasons.
Parent Tray. This Chicco stroller comes with a parent tray which is a nice accessory to have in order to store small personal items. I was able to store my keys, phone and even a small water bottle in the parent tray.
Easy to Access Storage Basket. I found that the storage basket for this stroller was easily accessible even when the seat is fully recline.
There wasn’t anything I’d particularly want changed in this Chicco stroller. For its price, Chicco has exceeded my expectations and I have no complains for the Chicco Activ3 jogging stroller.
One of the “con” I’ve heard from other parents is that because of the stroller’s weight, it can’t be used as an everyday stroller. While this Chicco stroller is indeed heavier when compared to everyday strollers, it is by no means heavy when you compare it to other jogging strollers.

There is no doubt that the Chicco Activ3 jogging stroller is one the best jogging strollers out there. I feel like Chicco really stepped up their game in their jogging stroller product line with this stroller – I wouldn’t be surprised if this stroller turns out to be the flagship product for Chicco! Not only is it affordable, it also comes with many features, some of which you’ll only see in higher priced jogging strollers. The standout feature for me in this Chicco stroller has got to be the parking brake and the front wheel lock controls on the handle bar. This just makes things much more convenient when you’re out on a jog. The other feature that I thought was awesome was the stroller’s oversized canopy. I highly recommend the Chicco Activ3 jogging stroller to those of you who are looking for a single jogging stroller for your family. You won’t get a more feature-filled jogging stroller than the Chicco Activ3 at this price point.
