Great for transitioning a baby from car seat to stroller
I was guilty of buying the snap an go, which consist of just a car seat an base. I did not realize how fast a baby grows out of that kind of stroller being a first time mom. My daughter is almost 10months an I needed something that provided back support an comfort at the same time. Knowing Mclaren is a name brand with a great reputation i chose to go with the Triumph.. the price i reasonable an if you are a on the go mom like me , its one hand close is perfect, light weight easy to pick up... several reclining positions for baby. I really like the fact that it comes with a rain cover already that was a great plus. if you carry alot on your stroller this is not for you at all...there is no storage really an hanging bags on it is a pure no no ....for that can cause the stroller to tip back. Overall nice stroller many color options and my daughter loves it .

Good But Not Great
I originally had a Maclaren technoXL. I love the XL but it was too heavy for a single Mom to handle along with a toddler so I looked for a more lightweight stroller. I love Maclaren and the brand and the durability of their strollers but I wish I had my XL back sometimes. The Triumph needs a few things to be perfect. It needs a pocket in the back of the umbrella drop down like the XL has (for my keys and cell phone). The wheels get the umbrella hood dirty really fast as well and I would love it if the canopy was removable so I could wash it (I hate dirt). I also would love it if it had come with a collapsible metal cup holder attached to the handle for my coffee or a sippy cup. I do however love how lightweight it is, how easy it is to collapse and "throw" in my trunk, and the quality of the stroller. I haven't noticed any tearing or wearing of the wheels and I have had my stroller for over a year now. I also love the colors and styles and the overall look of the stroller.

Just like the volo/globetrotter
I bought this stroller for my one year old, I thought it would be a great light weight stroller because the last maclaren I had was great but I was wrong. The first disappointing thing is it does not recline it says it does but it is always in a constant reclined position which frustrates my baby it is just like the volo/globetrotter. Second is that canopy does not help keep the sun off my child. I would not recommend the stroller to anyone that has a child under 2

Mom of 3
Love the stroller! We have had a single, a double and now an another single Maclaren! Love all 3 and after 8 years use all of them. My only complaint is that I wish the seat sat more vertically. My old Triumph sits up more. But oh well, still the best stroller.

Great light weight option for travel
This stroller is great for travel. We took it on a trip to NYC. It was nice because it was so light weight but also reclined for naps.

Great for travel and long-lasting.
I was concerned about some of the negative feedback I saw here, but I decided that the positive outweighed the negative and I ordered it, anyway. And I'm so glad that I did!
It's great for my toddler when he doesn't want to walk everywhere; plus, the storage capacity in the shopping basket is pretty roomy. The packaged exclusive deals on this site are really amazing and I'm so happy with my choice; especially with another bun in the oven! I know this stroller will last until this next munchkin is old enough to use it, too.

Easy to move, fold, but gets dirty
LOVE my triumph. It is so easy to push and roll around as well as fold up. The only negative is that the wheels get the inside of the hood dirty. Seems like it should be designed not to happen for the money that you spend on this umbrella stroller.

Though this stroller is very beautiful I was very unhappy with it. At first I was in love, it was moving very easily and is very light weight. After about two months the side stitching began to rip. I contacted customer service and after about three weeks I received a new seat. Again, after about a month the stitching to the new seat began to break again.
Also the outter wheels in the back began to wear out quickly after a few months, whitch makes the stroller very hard to push. My daughter isnt very heavy.
What I found very interesting is the fact that I've come across THREE other women with the same triumph 2012 stroller with the same issues; faulty wheels and broken stitchings on the side. How ironic.
