Took a chance and was satisfied
Reviewed in the United States on May 12, 2020
Being a recently new father of my 4th child I've been around the block on items for the kids and what to carry around. My past mistakes were buying the biggest items that were not travel friendly in the best terms. This time I decided to take a chance on this product even though there were no reviews and it being a brand new item. We wanted something compact with versatility. Upon arrival I was very impressed with its compact design after the unboxing. It literally came in a bag right out of the box already in it's most compact form. I'll move into the meat and potatoes of this review.
This thing is light. 10 pounds on the scale with the bag on. My mom had back surgery and cant lift any more than 15-20 pounds. This stroller was perfect for her to tote around and carry short distances.
Ease of assembly
Upon removal of the bag it has both front wheels loose and not connected. Not to fret though as the assembly was literally a couple snaps away. Just insert and listen for the audible click of the locking mechanism that hold them in place. They are removable in case they break and are in need of new wheels. First unhook the strap by the handles pull the center locking mechanism straight and pull it upright. You will know you did it right by the green indication located on the bottom center portion of the frame on each side. Boom that easy!!
Take down isn't too hard either.
Push the buttons on the handle down and slide handles all the way in. Push button in the center between the handles so that it isn't locking the handles apart from each other. Next pull the triggers under the handles and push all the way forward. Dont forget the strap and you're done.
Sounds like a lot but once you see it in person it's pretty simple.
If you didnt pick up on the previous paragraph, it has adjustable hands grips 3 convenient adjustments for the tall, the inbetweens, and your little helpers. They seem to be 6 in. Extension from the lowest setting and up to about 12in at its max.
Underneath the baby section it has a little basket for the diaper bag essentials.
Compared to other brands I found that the canopy on this one extended out quite a bit. My little one actually didnt need it too much as he was lounging in his stroller under some trees. However when we rode into the sunset (in the garage to go inside) the canopy did pretty well in blocking out the sun.
5 point restraining harness
Just in case dad wants to race your precious bundle under intense pressure of finishing across Talladega or le mans while proudly waving the stars and bars with the crowd cheering in the back ground as they get a nod from Danica Patrick, Jeff Gordon, Mario Andretti, Jr., Lightening McQueen, and Mr. "The king" (Dinoco car in first movie). Just as Dale Earnhardt let's down a ray of sunshine on the first place podium that the father(or S.O.) of your children and said child are standing on!!
Sorry lost track of my thoughts. Lol father of 4 growing and eat-everything boys.
Those are pretty much the highlights. The cons I am about to list arent necessarily too bad and few if any.
1.My biggest pet peeve would probably be the adjustable handles. Once all the way down they dont lock into place. They only lock at the mid level and highest level settings. This is a small problem for people on the go. Once collapsed all the way down the handles slide up when trying to stuff it back in the bag. It could be a hassle if you're in a big hurry. Not a deal breaker but not practical in certain situations.
2. Shoulder straps
The shoulder straps are not that sturdy. In fact, when he moves they move and slip off his shoulders. Not exactly looking forward to seat belt burns as your little one is doing burnouts with family members.
The space for a diaper bag is pretty small. I'm glad this came with one and we normally travel with a back pack and not a full size baby bugout bag. I would suggest of being wary of that on purchase.
4. Seatbelts harness
I know most strollers come with a plastic seat belt with button to lock into place. The over the shoulder portion had plastic hooks that hooked on to the lap belt to button altogether. Not much of a fan on that but again not a deal breaker.
I would say as a suggestion for the engineers to find a away to include a way to fight against the elements. Mosquito net, additional travel bag, rain cover, cupholders. I know I could probably find all of this items elsewhere but I would have been wowed if they included such items or I was able to get them in one place.
Other than those few things it's pretty cool and my little one really enjoyed it. Didnt get too hot and was very comfortable all smiles to prove it.
