    Hi all, am on the hunt for my first travel system and the two named above have caught my eye. Anyone had either of these and able to give feedback? Or are there any others out there that are worth me taking a look at? :o)

    I saw someone walking around Brighton with the Norton Storm pram in the denim colour - it is gorgeous - it took me weeks of Internet searching and forum badgering to find it online!! Unfortunately nowhere near me stocks it so I couldn't go anywhere to try it out. But it looked great - really cosy and compact with a lovely style to it. I don't know a lot about the Jane Rider but it gets great reviews on 'which'!! X

    I have had 2 of them, loved them. Seat unit is great size and nicely padded, lovely to push it glides along great for around town or rough terrain. Would def recommend it :thumbup:

    I think we are getting a norton. Saw them at the Babyshow and loved them. For those who want to know stockists. Here is their website with stockists listed on there.

    Thanks for your replys, went viewing prams yesterday & the Norton certainly looks a good buy, good quality and great value for everything that is included in the package.

    The Jane is certainly still a contender though, although a little pricey with all the add ons, quite like the lie flat car seat... Also the new model out next month looks nice, the Trider!

    The Bebecar also caught my eye, oh dear, decisions decisions, good fun looking though! x :happydance:

    Have been out today checking out the Jane range. I was initially considering the Rider and the Slalom Reverse but after seeing the Trider online and discussing it with two sales people who have seen it, I have decided to go for that one. It seems to tick all my boxes thankfully.

    Hi lisa, yes I think the trider is the one! The lie flat car seat / carry cot seems really practical. Are you going for the matrix light combo or the one with carry cot too? The matrix seems to do everthing needed & simplifys things a litttle.. X

    Oooo I'm going to get a Jane. I'm going to wait and see the Trider but so far I love the Rider but could be tempted with a slalom as they are less than £100 on ebay!

    The matrix is the major draw for us, it looks so comfy
