Stollers for tall parents?

 Hi ladies,

I just found out that I'm expecting (yay!) and know that one of my hardest (and time consuming) things to buy is going to be the stroller.  I'm in need of recommendations for strollers/car seat combos that are good for much taller parents.  I'm only 5'7'' but DH stands at 6'9''.  Just about any stroller would be alright for my height, but I really don't want him to hurt his back if he's on stroller duty.

I've heard that the Chicco KeyFit 30 is good for parents up to 6'6'', but I was hoping to find something more accommodating for him.  I know there are handlebar extensions, but I've heard their bulky and aren't so sturdy. I really would like to keep the price under $350 if possible, but might have a little wiggle room if the reviews/specs are good enough.  It'll be an investment to save for future babies so something gender neutral is a plus.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Chicco has one with an adjustable handle. That was both of you can use it easily. Both me and my sil have one. You can get the stroller and carrier for about $350.

I know some of the Jeep strollers come with adjustable handles for different heights like this one:

Something to be aware of is the crossbar at the bottom. Have your DH try one out with his stride. I haven't found a stroller that I don't kick that bottom bar constantly

 The MIL went ahead an purchased the Chicco Keyfit 30 last night even though I wasn't quite done with my research.  She's SOOO eager to have another grandchild (she already has 7) but DH is her only son, so it's up to him (well me now) to "carry on the name". I'm still going to be looking around in case there is something that might be better for him though. Thanks for all the tips/advice/suggestions ladies!
