I use it to get around the house. I zip tied the basket to the frame because it falls off with the slightest bump you go over. I like the size and the way it gets me into small areas.
The handles are easy to adjust, and comfortable. The Dolomite Legacy is a bit pricey, but I guess you get quality when you pay for it. I have used many other rollators, including the over sized Dolomite Soprano, which I sold at a big loss. It couldn't go into small rooms or through narrow halls or doorways. I am happy with my selection of the Dolomite Legacy and highly recommend.
I found my Dolomite Legacy here, but it was issued to me by the VA Hospital (sorry!).
This rollator is sturdy. The backward handles are genius, and very comfortable. The Legacy folds with one pull on the handle in front of the seat, and stays folded so you can just swing it into the car or the back of your pickup. The brakes work better than any brakes on any other rollator I've used, and you can stand it up not folded in the back of a boxy SUV, Scion xB, or pickup and trust the brakes to keep in in place (with a bungee cord to keep it from tipping sideways). The fold up seat is the best; you can walk directly between the handles. I did replace the strap that you lean against with a belt made by a local belt maker. A full size laptop backpack fits in the wire basket, and the belt can be buckled through the carry loop to keep it in place. Keep the buckle side short so you aren't leaning into the buckle if you sit. I also put extra cushion on the handles to accommodate an old thumb injury... pipe insulation cut to length and held on with Zip-Ties! Works great.
The seat the Legacy comes with is a hard seat with the option to buy a cushion. I haven't found any reason to cushion it; a folded sweatshirt does the trick.
The wheels are big, and roll easily over bumps and rough ground. We go on minor hikes with mine, and it will roll easily on a dirt trail. There's no 'give' or cheap feeling to it. Its well built and doesn't flex. It's also good up to a few inches of snow. I lean very hard on mine because I use it to offload a bad knee, and I never question its support.
Yes, I would buy this rollator for any family member. And yes, I did name it Speedy!

The Dolomite Legacy Rollator is an excellent product. It is extremely sturdy with wheels that roll easily over a variety of surfaces. The rollator appears superior to other brands that I have seen on the city streets. The brake mechanism is also excellent, allowing my husband to stand up with confidence as he transfers from a sitting position. Last but not least, the standard size provides a high enough height adjustment that is appropriate for my 6-foot tall husband.
The Dolomite Legacy Standard is VERY stable. I feel very secure using my Dolomite Legacy Standard. The larger wheels make it easier to go up curbs and over uneven pavement. Everyone likes my new red Dolomite Legacy Standard! I like it, too.
So thrilled to have this walker with the option of one hand brake which operates both sides!
