We have the Metrolight (bought almost 2 years ago) in another print, but its the same thing. We LOVE it!
I have scoliosis, and have to use a stroller when my back acts up. I use my MTs and RS otherwise. That said we probably use the stroller at least daily.
-How light it is.
-Dh can fold and unfold with one hand. I can't because of my bad back and frankly never had to use one hand only.
-The basket part really does hold a lot despite being so small. I have a Lands end backpack as my diaper bag and the basket can hold that, plus my shoulderbag purse! Balanced on top that is...
-The stroller is really easy to turn and turns on a dime.
-Its also much smaller than other strollers I've tried. I can get it through narrow parking spaces and store isles.
-The shade is larger than most stroller shades and covers a lot. When both carseat and stroller shades are up, the baby is entirely enclosed.
-When you have the back down, eg. when you have the infant carseat in the stroller, the basket is inaccessable. Its a pain when you want to get something out. Basically you'd have to take the carseat off, put it down, get whatever you want out, and put the carseat back on. That said, I preplanned what I wanted to have out, and so it wasn't a problem, I just hung stuff off the handlebar in a bag. The inaccessability also served as extra security in that I was pretty sure stuff from my basket wouldn't fall out accidently.
-The stroller does feel a little bit rickety-er than other strollers, eg. Peg perego. However, Dd's now 19mo and we've used the stroller almost daily and its not given us any problems. It is mostly plastic with aluminum parts.
-The brakes are only on the back wheels (like most strollers) and operate independently. That means its a 2 step process with your foot to put the brakes on, and sometimes you will forget one side. Not a biggie, but its a pain sometimes.
-The front wheels have to be facing a certain way to get the stroller to latch closed easily. You can do it with the wheels facing the other way, but it just takes more force. Again, not a biggie.
All in all, if I had a choice between the Metrolight and other fancier more expensive strollers, I'd still pick the Metrolight because it was in the right price range for us and had the features I wanted. I believe we picked our up (in Oregon) for $169.00 on sale.
