Personal Opinion:

My daughter has a day to day wheelchair for school and urban/suburban situations but we love being outdoors and going on walks and found her regular chair limited where we could go, so this has been a great 2nd chair for us. It's very easy to push, although the fixed front wheel takes a bit of getting used to. It has given us the opportunity to explore more places and we have used it on grass, woodland walks, gravel and on firm sand.
It is a large chair though, so it's not suitable for everyday use. Not a great deal wider than my daughters regular wheelchair, but much longer, and much less manoeuvrable in a small space.
We have had the chair since my daughter was 6 yrs and she's now 8 yrs (average height) with plenty of grown room still.
The basic chair is much the same as an off road toddler buggy, but larger in size. We have not had to do any adaptions, but it is possible to put in some postural support inserts.
There are other similar chairs on the market that do additional things like hitch up to a bike, however this one is simply a pushchair (which is all we needed) which is reflected in the price comparison.
