I gave this stroller four out of five stars as several things are not quite perfect. One, the color choice-lilac or mango- leaves something to be desired! I would have preferred more mainstream colors. Second, the handle is a little shorter and smaller than I like. I also have a Pet Gear AT3 and like the handle on it better. It is harder to put the brake on the Sportster as each wheel has to be braked separately unlike the AT3. And finally, the latch to keep it folded is plastic and is sure to break before the stroller wears out.
But other than those things, it is great. I bought it because the AT3 was hard to fit into the car. As expected, the Sportster is smaller and lighter, but it fits my 30 lb corgi comfortably. It is easy to push and steer. The lighter construction and smaller wheels also make it easier to pack away but I assume also will mean more wear and tear over time.
Pet Gear strollers fold extremely easily. While the button on my AT3 can sometimes be hard to push, the Sportster works easily. Unfolding does not even require a button and both can be done one-handed. The fabric is sturdy, especially the screen, which we never use. I do not have a rain cover for the Sportster but do for the AT3 and it is somewhat deficient...hard to put on and to keep in place. It would be better to have an incorporated rain cover that could be pulled down when needed.
I like the tricycle design as I find it much easier to steer than quad designs, and this stroller is no exception.
I had a coupon and paid about $100, which I think was fair.
This is the best purchase I've made for my pet. Not only is it half price on Overstock compared to many sites for the same stroller, we've taken our two Pomeranians in it to upscale shopping centers, restaurants, etc. Unlike many strollers, the mesh on this one allows the pet to see out very well but it does disquise what's inside somewhat for their own privacy. It rolls smoothly and perfectly over all terrain. Great to take your pooch to a place for dinner with a patio...they can sit and enjoy the sites and sounds as much as you and, if you put the top down there is an easy harness for their collar so they can ride in the "convertible" We put a new puppy in it as well as our 2 year old Pom and both adored it! The puppy enjoyed the vibration of it rolling and fell asleep then enjoyed the sites at lunch time and the older dog stayed right up front like she was driving grinning from ear to ear. In fact, when we stopped strolling she barked to keep rolling!
Even better, when shopping your pooch no longer has to wait in a car on cool days and you have a place to put your purse in the bottom and your drinks at the handle and no strain on your shoulder from a small uncomfortable dog bag for your pet!
We painted over the pawprints so we can go more incognito with the dog when needed
I was very pleased with the quality of the product and I found it easy to assemble. We used it several times and it is easy to push even on rough terrain. It folds up neatly and I would reccomend this product.

I got this for my two Pomeranians Mia and Pippa. The quality of the fabric is wonderful , very sturdy. I love that it is very easy to open and close and light weight as well. I must say they look really cute riding in it!!!! Thanks for a great product at a great price.

I am very happy with this item. It has a sporty look. Doesn't look cheap. It is very easy to push and make turns. Very lightweight. I like the height of the handle as I am 5'9. The instructions (I believe) said it should take 10 minutes to put together but it took me about 30 minutes as I am not known as MS. Fixit. The most important thing is that my dog enjoys it. He even likes being pushed around the house! This item is great as he has recently had an injury to his back leg. But, also because it rains alot here and he can stay off the wet ground and still go outside to see the sites and breath the fresh air.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made. A little hard to gather material to zip enclosure but it did zip.
I thought the stroller compartment would be a little larger considering it advertises to hold up to 45lbs. I should have paid more attention to the dimensions. My dog is just over 30lbs. and barely has room.
