Mountain Buggy +One 2015




Mountain Buggy +One is a very versatile single to double pushchair. It can be used from birth as a single, through to one baby and one toddler and all the way to 2 toddlers. There's also an option of using it as a single with storage space.
The +One you see here is the newest 2015 model. There's been some changes from the previous model and these are the new handbrake that is fantastic to use, the brilliant one hand fold and reclining seats when it's used as a tandem. 
I only had the +One for a very short time so this isn't a proper review. I only use a single as my eldest doesn't need a pushchair so I can't really comment on what it's like to use as a double.
Here are my pros and cons for the +One.

Pros:
  • very versatile with seating positions
  • great size seats
  • large all terrain wheels with suspension all round
  • fantastic one hand fold
  • comes as a full set, both seats and newborn mattress are all included although the raincover is still an extra!
  • good 5-point harness although the clips to lengthen and loosen the straps should be stronger
  • huge shopping basket with a high weight capacity of 10kg!
Cons:
  • very tall and large pushchair, I'm 5'7'' and found it one of the biggest, tallest and longest pushchairs I've ever used, it's fairly narrow at 63 cm but I couldn't see the front wheel even without the sun canopy opened. Baby felt a long way from me and I had no way of interacting with her
  • heavy to push as a single, veers on a slope and being a 3 wheeler becomes unstable
  • smaller sun canopy then in previous model, no protection from elements for second child
  • front seat is only held by a couple of straps and with the weight of a child it reclines too far especially if there's a newborn behind it
  • new canvas fabrics don't look very attractive, the canopy is very flimsy, rods should be stronger on such a wide hood
  • shallow main seat
  • fixed bumper bar that is hard to attach and remove
  • rubber on handlebar feels awful to touch and splits easily, replacement can be bought but I'd invest in some covers for it from the start to protect it
  • very long/tall folded, does freestand which makes it good for storing at home but you need a large and probably empty car boot to transport it
  • no raincover included as with all Mountain Buggies.

Tandem with newborn in the back


Single mode


Newborn mattress




2 toddlers mode














Where do the second child's legs go? :)
There's a zip underneath the seat, when undone it creates space 
for the child's feet, fabulous idea!


Massive basket with extra pockets on outside.


Large canopy but extension is mesh so only good in the summer.
















This is my own pushchair.
