I love the bugaboo chameleon and despite other reviews, i would say that it's very easy to put up and down (i'm 5.6) and not too big (it fits nicely in the boot of my ford focus with lots of room to spare).
On the down side, the basket is small and awkward to access when the carrycot or car seat is attached to the frame.
When I first saw the Bugaboo range I really didn't like them but a Mothercare Sales Assistant persuaded me to have a look. I eventually bought a Bugaboo Chameleon 2nd hand from Ebay. My son is now 3 months old and we've had it from birth. Having bought atleast 7 prams and pushchairs over the last 14 years, I'd have to say that I love this one. It's amazingly manoeuvrable. Turns 360 degress on the spot. The carrycot element is spacious and for a winter baby is perfect for keeping him cosy. Big plus points are being able to change the handle direction, height adjustable handle, ability to change the covers, accessories, comfort for the child, great looking. Negatives are: the room it takes up in your boot, price (though 2nd hand market is very good). It also takes a few goes to get the hang of erecting and putting down the pram.
We bought the bugaboo chameleon 2 second hand off some friends so it was 18 months old when we got it (they loved it, but needed to swap for a double buggy). Our baby is now nine months and we've had it since birth.
Really pleased with it. Its looks comfortable for our baby, and is study and robust. We have used it most days, up and down steps and in and out of car, as did our friends before us, so reasonable wear and tear considering the amount of use.
Bassinet is larger than some buggies and can be used overnight. We used ours overnight up to 5 1/2 months so saved taking a travel cot.
Love the ability to swing the handle over, useful for getting to baby.
Hood is also big compared to some other buggies so less adjusting of parasols (in summer), or can get away without the rain cover if its just lightly raining.
The bumper bar is slightly annoying to get out as you need both hands, but I believe that problem is fixed if you get a Cameleon 3.
It folds up pretty small considering - I have a VW Polo and have no problem fitting it in the boot.
We use with a maxi cosi pebble car seat and its simple enough to attach.
Collapsing the buggy is easy enough. Uncollapsing is also easy, but you need to make sure its fully folded before you can press the buttons to release, which is slightly annoying as you need two fully free hands and arms, so could be slightly more user friendly.
We've just bought a stroller for holidays etc, but will still be using the bugaboo as our main buggy.
I had an icandy peach last time, which was good until the cable in the handle snapped . We sold that pram but I kept my maxi cosy car seat, so I was looking at what that could fit on with different makes. I came across the bugaboo chameleon and liked the idea of being able to change the colours easily.
