I have been researching baby gear obsessively since before I was pregnant. I have read every "best of" list out there in my quest for the perfect stroller, to put this in perspective.
Is this the best stroller out there? Nope. There are better, smaller, lighter, prettier, higher quality, and FAR more expensive strollers out there. HOWEVER, if you don't want to drop hundreds of dollars on a stroller but still need a good quality stroller with great features, this is it.
I came across the summer CS series on accident, while I was trying to decide whether to buy a Chicco frame stroller for my carseat. I really didn't want to buy something with such a limited use, but I also don't feel like lugging 20 pounds of baby+carseat around, or bringing my BOB jogger everywhere. And then I found this! The holy grail of lighter strollers that can hold a carseat! (Please note that it only holds certain graco and chicco strollers, i got lucky!)
On top of being compatible with my infant carseat, it's light, folds quite compact, and has surprisingly good maneuverability. The basket is also big enough to hold my packed diaper bag plus other things I may need to stuff in there (it's a jujube be right back for reference). The footrest is adjustable- goes up with a push, but down requires two hands. And the recline is quite easy! The cup holder IS flimsy, but it's really not something I cared about as I can throw my water bottle in the basket easily. It would hold a paper coffee cup just fine though.
I'm 5' 10" and the handle height is great, it would be good for shorter or taller people too, it's quite universal. Does it adjust? No, but not a big deal.
The canopy is a bit stiff to fold and unfold, but it's solid and has good coverage. It's not upf rated but my son wears sunscreen and upf rated clothing so this wasn't an issue for me.
The child tray is very basic. I'm not using the child tray yet so I won't review that but it seems like it will do the job, I could fit a munchkin 360 cup in the cup holder portion.
It FOLDS AND UNFOLDS SO EASILY. Truly one handed.
This is the best basic stroller I've found in this price range. Honestly for the price it's fantastic. I was going to buy a chicco mini bravo plus but it's $40 more and I'm very happy with this one. If you have a graco or chicco infant car seat and didn't want their travel system, this is a great option! Or if you just need a great everyday stroller, this is for you! You won't regret it.
I've included a picture showing how the infant seat is secured to the stroller with a strap through the seat belt guides. It was easy to do and feels very secure.
