We have a few strollers- Phil and Teds Sport, Bugaboo Bee, Maclaren Triumph and a snap n go.
Our Stroller history goes like this
Bought P&T thinking we'd have another child and needed a jogger that could adapt.
Didn't think I wanted a snap n go, but had to do it.
For a lightweight we had a Maclaren Quest, which started having problems when DS was 10 months, got rid of it and bought a Bugaboo Bee which has been a fabulous all around stroller. We even used this once our second was born with a buggy board on it. However, we tend to use the P&T more because it has two seats available, good for long walks, city walking, etc.
I really, really love our Bee. I think it's a great versatile stroller, fairly lightweight, great shocks, rolls so smooth, seat faces forward or back. We used it for traveling internationally and it was fabulous. We are trying to sell it now only because we use the double and the Bee has not been used for a while, so if you want it, let me know! It's in great shape and I have a bunch of accessories.
I think you could get by with a stroller like the Bee if you have one kid. It's very versatile. However, if you are going to be on very rough terrain, I'd go for a jogger and then a lightweight, as suggested. It's hard to just get by with one stroller. When we don't use the P&T, I bought a Triumph off of craigslist for $30 because I wanted a stroller to throw in and out of the trunk and use on an airplane and not care if it got lost/damaged.
