Where to buy:
Description: The Jeep Overland Jogging Stroller is a traditional fixed front wheel jogging stroller with an ultra-light aluminum frame. All 3 wheels have reflectors. The Jeep Overland features a child tray as well as a parent tray with a "music on the move" hook up for IPods or walkmans, and a canopy that can swing front or back to block out the sun. It comes in black and silver vinyl and the seat has ample padding that can be wiped clean with a sponge. The Overland also has an adjustable 5-point harness, a large lower basket, and a rear brake system. I purchased mine at Babies 'R Us for $170.
Review: I've been jogging with the Jeep Overland for more than 8 months now with a son ranging from 15 pounds to 22 pounds. This is my absolute favorite baby product purchase because it allows me to stay in shape (I lost all my baby weight with it) while keeping my son nearby, and it lets both of us get outside in the fresh air. 
The rear brake works in an instant and the "music on the move" is a lifesaver to keep my ambition up. My son even dances along to the music, which is loud enough for us, but not loud enough to disturb the neighborhood. 
I've used this jogger on streets, sidewalks, dirt trails, even grass - and have been pleased with its ability on all these terrains. I wouldn't use it for walking or for going to the mall because it's too bulky and difficult to turn without speed behind it. 
The canopy could be a little longer, but it does unzip and slide forward so my son is never being blinded by the sun. 
The basket underneath is big enough to carry 2 full diapers bags, and the parent tray can hold 2 water bottles. This is a steal for all its features.
Criticism: It's difficult to turn at first, but after a few runs, it became very easy and I only have to pull up on the back wheels for especially tight turns. I can do so without slowing my pace at all.
