This console is a great addition to the Bob Revolution stroller. It's perfect for carrying waterbottles or other closed drinks. The warning labels say not to store hot drinks in the console and we tried putting a disposable coffee cup which was 1/2 full of coffee in it. As soon as we started walking, the cup spilled. So heed the warnings! We only use water bottles in it now.
Our diaper bag hangs off the handle bars and often gets in the way of storing a water bottle in the console. But because the water bottle is closed, it's not a problem if it is tilted or not in all the way.
The zipper pouch has been great for storing a pacifier, napkins, garage door openner etc. Because this stroller as little other practical space for the pusher, I would call this console a necessity for long walks or just a trip around town.
Works Great - A Real Necessity
This console is an absolute necessity (would have liked to see it included with the initial purchase of the BOB). The console is very easy to install with the sturdy velcro straps and the drink holders are sufficient for many size bottles. The middle zippered pouch is very handy, but my one complaint would be that it is not that deep. It'll accomodate a cell phone and some keys and maybe a few other small items, but with the depth of the drink holders on either side, the middle pouch could easily be made larger to accomodate more items without intefering with the stroller seat recline. The more storage the better on strollers.
A MUST HAVE
We have this accesory on our BOB and I can't imagine beign without it. The reviewer that noted cons related to diaper bags and coffee was right... but that's not really what it's supposed to be for. As a runner, this piece is essential for holding water bottles as well as keys, cell phone and toddler snacks. I agree - it's not stable enough for coffee. I say, relax, sit and enjoy your coffee after your run! ALso, the basket under the stroller would be a better place for a diaper bag - not the handle bars of the BOB. If you are getting a BOB - GET THIS CONSOLE!!
Fits on other jogging strollers too!
We opted to purchase another brand of jogging stroller, but really liked the BOB Handlebar Console. The console fits really well on our stroller and we're so happy we tried it.
When it comes to holding coffee, a paper cup wouldn't work well, but a tall/thinner travel mug is a perfect solution.
First of all the Bob revolution is awsome for the active parent who walks around the neighborhood, off road on hikes, the beach, etc.
The console aka drink holder is great for water, coffee, etc. plus the zip pouch is great for your keys, phone, etc. Makes a great shower gift too.
Convenience within a handle!!
This console keeps water bottles right at the handlebar for easy reaching while pushing my grandson during power walks. The zippered pouch holds cell phone, wipes, keys, or any small item. I never have to remove it from the stroller.
This is a must have convenience with the B*O*B stroller.
A must-have if you use the bob. Great for errands or jogging, can stash cell phone, gels or protein bars, keys, wallet and drink. My friends love running with me now because I can carry everyone's stuff!! Just wish the drink holders could adjust to hold the larger nalgene bottle.
A must have for your jogger!
My only complaint is that it isn't included! I went a whole year without this and for [$] I should have purchased way before I did. It is a must have!!!!! I have the BOB SUS D'LUX stroller and love it!
The cup holders are great to hold your water bottle, the kids sippy cups or bottles. The middle compartment is perfect for your phone and snacks. Makes it easy to get to things when out for a walk or run!
Good addition for any BOB
Console makes a great addition to any BOB stroller. Easy access to drinks, pocket to place small items (keys, cell, kid's toy or snack).
Very easy to attach on to handle bars. Cleans easily.
