Best umbrella stroller! (By J. Smith)

We needed a travel stroller for an overseas trip. My daughter is almost 5, but we knew we’d be doing a lot of walking and touring. We’ve been through several umbrella strollers that have not lasted more than one trip- and were painful to push and uncomfortable for my daughter. So I did research this time, and finally decided on this one. It was one of the few umbrella strollers that had a higher weight limit (my daughter is almost 40 lbs.), and got great reviews.

We all LOVED it! I loved that it was easier to push than most umbrella strollers, even over grass; the storage basket underneath came in so much handy as we loaded it each morning with things we might need for the entire day- jackets, travel book, blanket, water, etc. I liked the cupholder (though I wish it had 2), and the little storage bag in the back was perfect for sunglasses, tissues, and hand wipes. My husband appreciated the higher handles. He’s over 6′ tall, and he usually has to hunch over to push an umbrella stroller, yet this one was tall enough to be comfortable for him, yet not too tall for me (I’m only 5’4″). We both loved what a pack horse it was! We even loaded it up with luggage and it didn’t waver. It was a lifesaver. My daughter loved it, too. It was very comfortable for her, reclined nicely, and she even took several long naps comfortably in it.

All in all, we are very pleased with this purchase and I am SO glad we have finally found the perfect umbrella stroller- without having to pay an arm and a leg! (Too bad we went through so many before I finally sat down and did the research!)

Just what I needed (By Jesus Alfredo Martinez)

I bought this stroller right before my vacation to Disneyland, actually I had it delivered to the hotel with no issues. The parks were a good test for the stroller. First of all, it came in a box, almost fully assembled, I only had to assemble the wheels, canopy and cupholder and I had no problem doing that without any tool. It was ready in 10 minutes. The materials look durable and colors are cool. My daughter is 3 years old, so I don’t need the 5 point seatbelt, I just had to detach the 2 upper belts (they still hang in the back of the seat, but that is ok for me, actually they are useful for hanging other items.

During the days at the parks the stroller did a great job, it handles very easily, has the perfect height so I don’t have to crouch in order to push it (I’m 5’11”). The seat reclines almost flat, so my daughter was quite comfortable when sleeping. The basket is very useful, it can hold 2 adult hoodies, 1 pair of child shoes, 1 plush toy and 2 small bottles of water and still had some room. The back pocket is great, you can store sunglasses, maps and more, and you can close the pocket with a Velcro cap.

I hung 2 backpacks, one on each handle and it was fine, it steered ok (obviously with no child on it, the stroller would roll backwards). The canopy is ok, it has this extra section that provides more shade, anyway when the sun was down I had to place a jacket on the canopy in order to extend it.

It is also easy to fold, you just have to pull a handle and then push a little lever, but when folded it is not really compact, it is ok to put it in a car’s trunk though. The weight is ok if you just want to lift it momentarily, my wife could lift it easily, but if you plan to carry it for more than 5 minutes you need a smaller/lighter stroller.

Good but not GREAT. (By Sha-Lo)

I purchased this item because of the reviews that it’s a lightweight “suped up” umbrella stroller. It IS very lightweight, however I’m not pleased with a few of the features. Namely, the plastic materials are very cheap quality – I did expect more. The canopy is paper thin, however it does provide proper protection. I also think the seat depth is too shallow for my 16 month old and it’s supposed to take her to 50 lbs, she’s only 23 lbs so far. Also, the seat reclining function requires you to get behind the stroller and release with both hands (no biggy) but it’s still a slight “con” on my review. What annoyed me most was the fact that to set it up the foot stand to press down is very narrow, not even my size 5 foot couldn’t get leverage to press down to secure it. So, I pushed the front wheels against my car tire for leverage and pressed down firmly with the tip of my foot and it worked fine (again, not a biggy) but I expected more. Lastly I’m 5 feet tall, I wished the handles were removable for shorter parents. Otherwise, it’s a 4 star for me…good buy.

A Perfect Investment! (By Jenn H)

Bought this stroller to use at Disney. Going to a Disney theme park is an all day and physically exhausting trip for an adult and I wanted something comfortable for push my 2 year old toddler in to make my trip easier and less demanding. This product was PERFECT. It is compact, durable, and lightweight. It is not heavy at all, and is easy to carry with the sling when you are on the move. It was also very easy to assemble right out of the box (my toddler enjoyed helping). The handles are ergonomically correct and made life easy for me as I am 5’4 and suffer from lower back pain. My experience with other umbrella like strollers leave me in considerable pain. This stroller was a perfect investment. I wish I had purchased it sooner

Good with minimal faults (By Bonnie Lee)

Received this stroller as a gift 3 months ago. I like it for the most part, it is a decent mid-price range umbrella stroller. I had wanted the uppababy gluxe after hearing moms rave about it. But the gluxe is stupid expensive, and this stroller I think is pretty good for a fraction of the cost.

Pros:
-It is light enough for me to carry this and my 7 month old up to my 3rd floor apartment.
-It is easy enough to fold and open while holding my son (although this could use some improvement. For example, I have to have the stroller against a wall to be able to push down hard enough to open the stroller, and the lever to close is not the easiest to push down).
-I love that it reclines
-The canopy is a good size for an umbrella stroller.
-good storage space.
-I also like that the padding for the belt is attached, but would have liked the shoulder pads to not be as easy to remove. One of the shoulder pads must’ve fallen off while I was putting the stroller in my car, and now it’s missing.

Cons:
-shoulder pad as mentioned above
-broken already? One of the front wheel plastic lock lever broke off. I’m not sure how as I’m not rough with it. Now one wheel is stuck in the lock position so it won’t maneuver as well on sidewalks.
-doesn’t stand when folded

I can live with most of the cons. But I’m upset about the broken front wheel lock. I’ve contacted summer infant for replacement parts, so will update this review once I hear back from them!

Edit-
Summer infant responded the next day, and asked for information about my purchase and use. They are sending me a replacement wheel and shoulder pad! I emailed them about it Tuesday, and I should receive The following Monday. They were very quick to respond, and although it was just via email, correspondence was pleasant.

GREAT LIGHTWEIGHT STROLLER FOR THE PRICE (By brandon)

First off I must say FAST SHIPPING! We are military and we have an APO address in Korea, we received the stroller in less than a week. As for the stroller it is very sturdy, our very big 18 month old (35 lbs and 2.5-3ft tall) loves it. He has a lot of growing room into the stroller. It reclines back far enough to where he can nap on the go and the normal up position is at a nice comfortable angle for him. I’m 5’6/66 inches and I don’t hit the back of the wheels while walking. The handles are at a comfortable angle for my pregnant wife that is 5’3. This stroller is “lite” weight lol. The wheels are sturdy and seem rugged enough for the cobble stone roads here. Great stroller. Fits our family well!

I pushed it to the limit and I love it!! (By Enzo’s Mom)

I waited until I used this stroller on my trip to Europe before I reviewed it. I have to say, this stroller was awesome and I can’t recommend it enough. Of course, there is no perfect stroller. After 3 kids, I have owned more than 7 strollers (that I can remember) from the top of the line to the $20 umbrella and they all have their pros and cons. If I had it to do all over again, I would buy this stroller for all 3 for airplane travel and walks around town. I didn’t get an opportunity to use off-road much, but from my experience, you need bigger wheels for that type of strolling. Anyway, this stroller maneuvered through the bombed out, potholed sidewalks of Bosnia with ease. My in-laws live there, so we go often and I have taken no less than 4 different strollers there, and it can be the most annoying place in the world to stroll because there is no such thing as handicap ramps or ramps of any kind, usually. Also, the sidewalks have not been repaired since the war, so there are potholes everywhere and wheels get stuck. Once I hit a hole and my kid wasn’t strapped in, and he went flying out, face first onto his stomach. It was a funniest home video moment but I couldn’t laugh because he was crying. This stroller didn’t get stuck but once or twice. It’s light enough to pop wheelies when you need to, even when you have bags and bags in the basket and hanging on the handles. This trip we also went to Vienna, and it did great on their old school paver streets and in the U-bahn, up and down escalators. We also spent a day at a palace garden with LOTS of gravel. This was easy also; didn’t get stuck once. No problems at all. After about 5 weeks away, the wheels are still hanging in there with no wobbling what-so-ever.

The winning feature for us on this ‘lite’ stroller is … (By E. Flores)

The winning feature for us on this ‘lite’ stroller is that the back actually reclines back. So when our kid falls asleep his head doesn’t hang down to the front. I know there are more confortable strollers out there but they are bulkier and heavier which is not real practical when traveling which is the main reason we got it for.

Great for the price (By L. Potraffke)

I wanted a stroller that reclined enough for my 3 month old but didn’t require him to be in his car seat. This stroller reclines more than enough – I don’t even use the flattest setting – and it allows the baby to face forward during the walk, so they can look at everything you pass and not get bored. It was super easy to assemble, is very lightweight, and looks great.

I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because of the following:

1. You have to remove the sun visor to fold up the stroller. This is easy but inconvenient.

2. The front wheel suspension is great, but the back wheels are rigid, so the ride can still be a bit bumpy.

3. I wish the sun visor had a peekaboo window so you could see the baby from above while walking.

Good lightweight stroller for travel, worked for both a 1yr old and 4 yr old (By chunkalunk)

Nice, lightweight stroller

PROS:
EASY TO FOLD – there is a lever with a button that you press and lift. It collapses the stroller easily and then you lift the front wheels up. No strange jerking/shaking motions needed!
CARRYING STRAP – It has a carrying strap, which is great to carry it with when folded up. If you plan to use this stroller a lot, it’s a NEED to have option.
ROLLS EASILY – Nice, smooth ride. Feels like a Maclaren stroller
EASY TO RECLINE – Easy to recline up and down with one-hand, located behind the seat. Some of the strollers in this price range or below tend to have straps that you need to cinch, in order to raise or lower the seat. The mechanism on this stroller makes it super simple.
LARGE CANOPY – We used this stroller for a tropical vacation and the large canopy (it can expand) was perfect for a sleeping kid while walking around in the sun
ADJUSTABLE LEGREST – The seat extends past the knees on infants/toddlers, and the legrest can be adjusted all the way down (for big kids) or flat (for the babies), or whatever position is most comfortable for the rider. The legrest was easy to adjust and worked fine for both our 4 yr old and 1 yr old.
BELT BUCKLE COVER – there’s a flap that covers the seat belt buckle when it’s in use, which is nice to prevent the little ones from toying with it, but also provides comfort (the belt buckle is not rubbing against their bodies directly)
CONS:
TWO HANDLES – It’s difficult to push this stroller with one hand. If you absolutely need one-hand pushing so you can hold/do something else with another hand, then you should consider a different stroller.

Lighter and more feature-rich than many, lots of bang for your buck (By N. Taylor)

Whenever I buy something, I read all the reviews and research A LOT. And even then I’m not sure I’m making the right decision. There aren’t that many reviews for the Summer 3d Lite as it seems fairly new to the market, so I thought I’d try and do a comparative review in the hopes of helping.

I wanted a durable, lightweight travel stroller, a decent recline, good wheels/maneuverability, comfort, storage space, 5-point harness, and for it to be easy to fold/unfold. I wanted all this for the minimum price possible as I already have an UPPAbaby Vista and a Chicco Liteway (I previously used the Chicco for travel but I had to leave it behind for an international move as I opted to take the Vista – we do lots of walking, and it’s much cheaper to replace an umbrella stroller!).

Some airlines/airports have strict weight limits on strollers that can be gate checked, and some airlines will automatically send the stroller to the baggage conveyor belts even if you gate-checked, so lightweight was essential.

Initially I was considering the First Years Jet Stroller, which weighs just 11 pounds. It has a 4* average rating from over 1100 ratings, AND costs under 45 dollars – seemed pretty good. But I went to try it in store and it was awful – no recline, wheels didn’t work properly (i couldn’t maneuver it on the floor – my son is 18 months and weighs about 25 pounds, about half the recommended max weight), awful sunshade, and my son wanted out! It felt cheap and flimsy so i looked at the reviews more closely – theme was that it was good for the price, and that the wheels are awful but people overlook that as it was so cheap. So whilst the Jet may be good/better than expected (for the price), I wanted something that was genuinely good, even if it meant spending a bit extra.

Hands down the best reclining umbrella! Buy this if you want an UppaBaby G-Luxe for 1/3 the price. (By lavender916)

I LOVE this stroller. LOVE. I have no idea why it took me so long to find it (I think it’s a new model?), but I am so glad I did.

I’m a bit obsessive about research, and I came to the conclusion that what we really needed was an UppaBaby G-Luxe so that my son could sleep in it and have good sun protection and also so that we could easily fold and carry it (hello shoulder strap). However, I was not down with the $220 price tag for a stroller that I knew we weren’t going to use much when we were not traveling (we use our Britax B-Agile all the time).

I originally bought a Chicco C6/Capri but I was not happy with it, mostly because the recline feature on it is a joke – it goes back literally two inches from upright (which isn’t perfectly upright, but still). I also didn’t love the hard plastic handles.

I’m not quite sure how I found this stroller, but I am so glad I did. In a nutshell, it offers nearly all of the features of top-of-the-line strollers – most closely the UppaBaby G-Luxe – but at a fraction of the price.

– It’s light – under 12 lbs, which is lighter than the G-Luxe.
– It truly reclines – it has four positions, from a pretty straight upright to a real recline, with two stops in between (it’s not a sliding adjust – there are stops on the poles but there are two midpoints from nearly flat to upright, which I think is completely sufficient).
– It has padded handles – most of the umbrellas in this price range (including the Chicco c6) have hard plastic handles, whereas the high-end strollers have padded handles.
– It has a shoulder carry strap – this is critical to me for a lightweight travel stroller, because when I have to take my son out to get on the subway, I need to be able to carry the stroller hands-free.

Folded in my baby! (By Dana Esposito)

I thought this was a decent stroller, light and easy to fold. The recline option was great for diaper changing on the go. After using it about 6 times (as it is our third stroller we only use to travel) the aluminum bars underneath cracked and it folded in on my 2 month old!!! I called customer service and they couldn’t help me due to it being over a year since I bought it and when I asked to speak with a supervisor was told to call back later!

Love it so far (By KC)

I just bought this and have yet to use it, but will tell you why I made the purchase. It is much roomier than most convenience strollers. I have a large and tall 2.5 yr. old. He is already 41 lbs, this is rated to 50 lbs. I went to the store to try out several strollers under $100. Most of the inexpensive strollers are already too small for him. On the First Years Jet he had no head support as his head was above the back of the stroller and his shoulders were cramped. On the 3-D he is supported when sitting upright and reclined. The 3-D lite has an ample sunshade, unlike many other strollers in the class. It maneuvers really well and he is higher up off the ground. It has an incredible recline, nearly full. The basket is big and accessible, unlike many. There is a carry strap that will serve us well on an upcoming trip. It doesn’t fold as tiny as i’d like, but with a big shade and tall handles that should be expected. I’ll stop back to change rating if I need to. Figured I tell what I found since there are practically no reviews of this on the web.

Love it! (By A. D. Poueriet Vidal)

Great for the $ you’re paying. I recomend for anyone that needs a light stroller that is affordable and sturdy. We received it very quick and love all of the storage it brings for a cup, under stroller and for a small bag on the back of the hood. Will definitely be giving it great use for a long time. Really happy with the 3 recline and 5 point hardness very safe for babies that like to throw themselves forward. He loves it!

Summer Infant Fuze Stroller with Universal Adapter, Mod Reviews

Love my Fuze! (By Jodi K.)

I have gone through my share of strollers between my toddler and my new baby. So when I received the new Summer Infant Fuze in Mod to review I was definitely going to put it through the wringer and make sure it is a quality product. My impressions of the Fuze right out of the box, LOVE LOVE LOVE the green and grey color and design. SO modern! Now on to my Pros and Cons –

Pros-

-Putting it together. I am not the “handy” type so I usually ask my husband to help a time or two if I am putting something together. This stroller could not have been easier to put together! I actually sat and read the instructions so it probably took me 20 minutes to put it together but it was all very common sense and if someone asked me to put another one together it would probably take me 5 minutes! You would think with it being so easy it would be flimsy or poor quality but that couldn’t be farther from the truth with the Fuze!

-Smooth ride! I took this stroller all over…grass, pavement, slightly rocky path, uphill and downhill. The stroller took it all in stride. My son was never uncomfortable or jostled around.

-Easy to maneuver in small/tight spaces. I took the stroller to the normal places…ie the mall and other large stores but the place it impressed me the most was a little boutique that was PACKED with items. With bulkier strollers I never would have made it around in that store but this stroller had no problem. I could move in and out of the tight spaces with ease!

-Big basket for my things. I have a LARGE diaper bag to deal with my infant and my potty training toddler and the basket underneath could hold it and way more!

-Includes the universal car seat adaptor! No need to buy it separately.

-Handlebar can be lowered or raised.
Perfect for spouses or babysitters of varying heights.

-Largest sun canopy I have ever seen! My baby was completely in shade. No sun peeking through!

-Seat lays completely flat for baby to take a nap.

-Seat can be forward facing or facing you and is super easy to switch back and forth.

-Very easy to fold and unfold and takes up very little space in the trunk.

-Sun canopy has magnetic peek a boo window to see baby.

Cons –

-No parent tray. There are 2 mesh bags attached to the back of the seat where you can put your keys and a cell phone but not much else and I would have liked another cup holder. The one it comes with is perfect for me but if I’m on a long walk I would have liked another cup holder for my husband or toddler.

-I would have liked the foot section of the seat to be move-able. While the whole seat lays flat so my sons feet don’t dangle if I lay him down, when he is reclining a little I would have liked his feet to be laying on something and not dangling. Not a huge issue, just my preference.

-The stroller closes very flat but I would prefer to close it into a standing position and not flat on the ground. Again, just a preference but definitely something I would have liked.

Over all, my Pros out weigh my Cons by leaps and bounds and I would recommend this stroller again and again!
Disclosure: I was given a free sample of this product to review. However, my opinions are definitely my own.

Quirky and probably not worth the money (By Rachel)

Overall, this stroller seems sturdily constructed, but I only bought it because I got the Summer Prodigy carseat as a gift. I wouldn’t get this on my own. It’s has a lot of quirks that we have had to get used to. I use this as our primary stroller and walk almost every day around town on sidewalked streets and have used it with the carseat and regular stroller attachments. My mom got a super cheap Graco stroller for like 50 bucks and I envy hers (it has 4 cup holders too!!).

Pros:
1) Lighter weight* for being a bigger stroller with a basket
2) Basket is flexible and fits a lot
3) Sturdy and comfortable handle
4) Folds down pretty easily and I can pop it open one-handed holding a baby
5) Summer had great customer service and replaced my first missing cupholder for free
6) Gray/green is cooler than black (temperature and style-wise), which is nice for hotter places and it’s very gender neutral

Major Cons:
1) Foot brake gets stuck going down curbs (so you look like a doofus try to cross the street because it locks right when you try to move forward as a nice driver has waved you on). This happens often.
2) The cupholder has to be removed every time this is folded and has no way to stay connected. Thus it has been lost, replaced, and now the new one has broken off becuase it couldn’t hold the weight of regular use (no Super Sized drinks, I promise). HUGE pain.
3) Folds down into a pretty large size – it’s hard for me to get it in and out of a VW Jetta trunk (notoriously wide and generous trunk size) and I’ve super scraped the bumper of my car. I can’t see this fitting in many compact trunks without a lot of effort. It’s downright gigantic with the attachment on it.

The cart is great, but must be purchased with the travel system (By luciene luiza rezende)

The cart is great , but must be purchased with the travel system , for the universal adapter for bb comfort is a bulls*** . Tested with all recommended brands and the bb comfort is not firm , it does not fit. Disappointed .

Would not recommend this stroller nor would i buy this over priced … (By rebecca garcia)

Cheaply made, I already had to have a replacement sent, can not lay flat unless you remove the seat, heavy and very bulky.
Would not recommend this stroller nor would i buy this over priced junk again

Three Stars (By kushand)

if it can extend to flat ,i think it will be better

Broke within a month (By Maqueda Hinds)

I purchased this item on March 17th and on April 16th the bar to fold the stroller up came loose. I was very disappointed in this I wanted a stroller that was slightly bigger and a little sturdier than the usual umbrella stroller and thought this would work. Now I’m back to the usual umbrella stroller that I’ve had for 2 years and the headache of returning this one.

Summer Infant Go Lite vs First Years Ignite (By Erin)

I initially purchased the Summer Infant 3dLite because it had great reviews and seemed to have everything I wanted. Once I received it, I was still mostly happy but I felt that it was a little big for my needs and also had some minor issues with it staying open while in use. I then purchased the Summer Infant Go Lite as well as the First Years Ingite Stroller to compare. I feel I must point that at the differences between the Ignite and the GoLite were minimal at best. My husband and I literally would find something we liked slightly better on one and then immediately notice something on the other that was slightly better. One main difference between them is the fact that the Ignite comes with a padded detachable storage compartment on the handlebars. It has one cup holder and a zippered case, a nice perk. They are almost exactly the same size: The handlebar height (from floor to the highest point) on the Ignite is 39 , on the GoLite it is 39. They both have front wheels that will lock. Neither have rubber grips on the handles, both are hard plastic. I found the Ignites to be very slightly more comfortable. They both have a height adjustable 5 point harness. Neither have clips that allow it to be a 3 point. Its either 5 point or none. The Go Lite has a padded crotch strap whereas the Ignites is simply a standard strap, not really sure it’s better one way on the other, unless maybe your little one is diaper only, or in a dress. The canopy on the Ignite is several inches bigger than the Go Lite, however I dont believe that it is enough to make a huge difference. The Go Lite has a back attachment to its canopy. I think it creates a solid look to it, but Ive also used it in the past to hold a toy or a drink.
I believe that it will also prevent any light from coming in from above if baby is lying down/sleeping. It also has a very small mesh pocket on the back side of it for storage. Even though the Ignite does not have this attachment, the seat back on the Ignite is taller and a bit more sturdy as it has a metal X directly behind it. They both recline, not flat, but a very good amount. You put them down in a similar manner but I did like the way the Ignites works a little more. The Go Lite was more of a clip that you open to loosen/tighten, where the Ignite is like two shoestrings you pull apart to tighten and just a plastic piece between the shoestrings you pull down to loosen. Both have the good under carriage storage but I think the Ignites storage is attached a little better. Size wise they are nearly the same. Both fold fairly compact: (HxLxW in inches) GoLite – 7x43x11, Ignite 8.5x44x12. You must physically push a clasp to lock them closed. Also, the wheels on the GoLite are a touch smaller, just under 5 vs just under 6 on the Ignite. Thats good and bad to me. It folds better and takes up less space but I think the larger wheels help it roll a touch better, but again, not enough to make a huge difference to me. Overall between these two I think I would be very happy with either in the long run, and would not regret choosing one over the other, but I did end up with the Ignite. I took a star off mostly for the harness and the grips. It really would be better (to me) if I could unclip it to use as a 3 point as well. Rubber grips are just more comfortable to me. I also want a cup holder and this one doesnt have one, however I have seen that I can purchase one aftermarket.

Good for travel, not for daily use (By Elisabeth A.)

Pretty good. I purchased this stroller for travel, because it folds flat like an umbrella stroller, to take on the airplane. What I noticed – it seems likely to tip over backwards if you place anything on the handles. Also, the canopy is not very large. The seat also is not very large, it is fairly shallow so for a toddler, they have less space. Overall not too bad – I understand that these design choices are necessary to make it fold flat. I wont be using this stroller in daily, home life. But for travel and vacation it’s perfectly fine.

GREAT light weight convenience stroller! (By tiffrushoes)

I did receive this product for free for a review. My review is completely unbiased.

I can appreciate a company that names its product appropriately it truly is a GREAT light weight convenience stroller!!

Pros:
*Light weight super easy to lift in and out of the car you can do it one handed
*Easy to turn and push it turns on a dime and glides smoothly
*Easy to maneuver can fit through any door, any store aisle
*Adjustable seat has a wide range of adjustments from sitting up right to laying down (does not go completely flat)
*Comfortable my children had no issues sitting in the stroller and found it very comfortable
*Classy looking definitely a stroller that you would feel good pushing around its not cheesy looking
*Simple to place and remove child from harness
*Handles are comfortable
*Height worked for both me (at 54) and my husband (at 64) this is actually very important to us!
*Folds small and easy to store
*Simple to set up from the box pretty much just snap on the wheels
*Cleans up nicely easy to wipe down

Cons:
*Small basket would suggest purchasing a stroller organizer to go over the handles
*Difficult to close you need to wear shoes (not flip flops) because you have to kick up one of the bars

In conclusion, I was very impressed. This stroller would be great for travelling or every day use. It certainly lived up to it’s name!

Pretty comfy – very lightweight (By Shannon)

The stroller is very lightweight compared to other strollers I’ve used. I like that for carrying and transporting it, but it’s not so great for pushing. I feel sometimes like I’m going to push my son right out of my grasp. The hood is not very large and doesn’t really do anything in the way of blocking sunlight or rain. I would’ve liked a bigger hood. The five-point harness is great because my son is only three months old but already out of his infant carseat. The padding on the seat and straps is enough to keep him comfortable and it’s a vinyl material so it’s easy to wipe clean if we have any messes. The basket is big enough to hold my purse, but not quite big enough for his baby bag. Overall, I like this stroller in comparison to several I’ve used.

Seat rioped through within the month. (By Sara)

This stroller does feel like a somewhat upgraded version of the typical umbrella stroller, with the back support, storage, and slightly larger size. However, I have to agree that it is cheaply made. We purchased March 17th. The support bars started ripping through the seat within a month. We were still in crazy first-time-parent mode and kept forgetting to return it until it was too late. We still use it out of necessity but it rips slightly further all the time under the weight of our 12th-percentile sized son. We are really disappointed as we were excited to be able to afford a higher-quality umbrella stroller since the good ones can be terribly costly. Looks like we got what we paid for I guess.

Eh. Looks great, doesn’t seem quite safe (By Mary E Goodhead Cardoni)

The size and weight of the stroller are great. The canopy is amazing. The cup holder included is a bonus. BUT. The straps slide loose easily, and my 18 pound 12 month old can fold forward completely to reach past his toes even when the straps are tight; the backrest part folds over even when the stroller is locked in the ready to roll position. Also, the excess material gets in the way if the snap on the side that holds it shut once you collapse it. So when you try to pick it up, it unfolds again. I love the look, it’s easy to push and has nice wheels, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Overall I really like it. I would buy again (By Kaildaria)

Bought this elsewhere, I was looking for a stroller that was light weight, not a million dollars, and had a larger area of coverage with the canopy. Overall I really like it. I would buy again.
Con: it has gotten stuck open a few times, we have had to really sit down and figure out the problem.
Pros: inexpensive, has one of the largest sun covers I’ve found, and light weight.

Perfect (By Yasmin)

Great stroller! All the benefits of a heavy duty stroller in a lightweight frame. Right there with luxury strollers like Uppababy G Luxe for 1/3 of the price. -Not on Amazon though, it’s a brand new stroller, I don’t think they caught up yet.

Summer Infant Spectra Stroller, Mod Reviews

Stays in a reclining position (By Amazon Customer)

I like most things about this stroller:
-The swivel wheels
-The cup holder
-The tray with two deep upholders
-The roomy basket
-The seat and buckles

However, there is one major drawback that effects functionality:
-Even though we sinched up the back all the way, the seat remains in a constant reclining position. This makes it hard for my son to be comfortable in here. He either has to lay down or sit forward without support.

Unfortunate flaw.

What a piece of crap! (By tizpear)

I got this off Ebay brand new in a box for $130, including shipping. I thought it was a steal, since the asking price is around $219. When it arrived, I was quickly disappointed.

Cons:
1. THE SEAT DOESN’T SIT UP! Not even close. There was no way my 2 year-old would have sat in it. (The B-Agile doesn’t sit up all the way either, but this is a lot more reclined than that! We are talking about a good 6-8 inches difference when my son was sitting all the way up to where the seat back was.)
2. The tray, while a good size, is very thin, cheap plastic.
3. They have the Summer Infant butterfly log on the side of the stroller. Mine was already coming off on one side. They are just stickers.
4. The fold is weird. They tried to make it like the City Mini or B-Agile, but instead of a one handed pull in the seat, you twist the handle bar and push with your hand down to the ground. YOU CANNOT HOLD A CHILD A DO THIS. The fold is also not very flat.
5. The fabric felt VERY cheap.
6. It is a very open stroller. My son could lean all the way over the side.
7. I liked the idea of adjustable leg rest, but when it was all the way down, there was barely any room for my kid’s feet on the foot rest. Maybe an inch of room.
8. The seat width is very narrow. Good for shopping aisles, bad for a growing child. Maybe 11 inches across.
9. The recline is supposed to be a strap recline. It’s more of a string recline. VERY CHEAP.

Pros:
1. It does have a flat or almost flat recline.
2. There is a cup holder, but it won’t hold more than a bottle of water or baby bottle. No coffee cups or fountain drinks. You can switch it to either side of the stroller.
3. Canopy is a decent size.
4. Can be a travel system.
3.
I liked the big peekaboo window with magnets, instead of Velcro.
4. Adjustable leg rest.
5. Comes with a child’s tray and 2 parent pockets. (Although you might only fit a cell phone and keys in them. They are small.)
6. The handlebar height seemed nice and I didn’t kick the bar.
7. Basket is a decent size.
8. The brakes were nice and flip flop friendly.

Bottom line:
I sold mine immediately at a kid’s resale store for about $60 just to make some of my money back. Skip this stroller. I am still just using my old Combi until I can find a better one. At most, they shouldn’t be selling this stroller for anymore than maybe $89.99.

Great price for such a quality stroller! (By Courtney M Buteau)

I have owned more strollers than I care to admit. It’s one of those things I’ve had to keep trying until I found the right one. There are some things moms might forget to be important when shopping for a stroller. And in my opinion, the Spectra didn’t leave much out. The canopy size, undercarriage basket size, parent cup holder, storage pockets, brake bar ease and one-hand fold are among my favorite features. So far, I’ve enjoyed the one-hand fold the most.

Most of my strollers I struggle to pick up and put away because they are so large and breaking it down can be equally frustrating. Not this stroller. I put it together and set it up without looking at the directions (by accident of course!) and opened it and closed it with one hand without even trying. The best part? This stroller can stand on its own once it is folded back together. None of the other strollers I’ve owned do this. It’s a huge help when you are putting other things in the trunk, this can stand up straight and be put in the car last. That feature alone protects the stroller from scratches and makes it easier to handle.

The Spectra Stroller is a quality stroller and is made to go the distance. Some perks I didn’t expect was the sweet peek window,
rear mesh window and adjustable foot rest. This stroller was made to grow with baby. My son is 9 months old and this will last us awhile! I’m telling you, it drives like a heavy stroller but is easy to use like an umbrella. The Spectra hasn’t left my trunk since I got it!

Disclosure: I was given a free sample of this product to review. However, my opinions are my own.

Super happy customer (By JAY BIRD)

This is the easiest stroller to push and turns are no problem! Lightweight. Folds up easy. So happy I purchased this stroller over the others I considered. Putting together was a cinch. Nice sized canopy. Many recline levels. Tons of storage underneath. Love the pockets on back for cell phone. Keeps it out of sight Awesome product. No complaints here!

Reclining – good

Snack tray good , parents coffee mug holder added benefit

Great convertable stroller (By Sue Pilgrim)

Very easy to use I love the height adjustment of the handle. Car seat is very easy to attach and detach to the stroller.
Very easy to switch out the car seat attachment with the stroller seat.
It does require both hands to close and is NOT light weight. But I can use it no problem unassisted. The rain shied and bug netting for perfectly over the stroller and still works with the car seat attachment as well.
I did have a problem with the wheel and steering but summer infant replaced the stroller no problems.

Heading out to purchase a new carseat. (By crameau)

I had previously written a positive review of this product. After using the product for a longer time I am changing my review and actually would warn people against buying any of their products. The car seat becomes stuck in the base and the mechanism on the car seat does not work correctly. They do not feel this is a safety concern. I asked to speak to a manager and I was told that they would not do anything to rectify the situation.

Total Game Changer (By Chelsea)

We’ve been loving our time with the Flip 3D so much that we’ve moved out old, bulky one to grandma’s. Honestly, I have a lot to say about it. :)

I love that it has the convenience of an umbrella stroller, but is something that can be traveled with all day – especially for someone tall who usually has a problem even pushing traditional umbrella strollers! It was comfortable for both of my little guys, I enjoyed that I was able to have separate size adjustments on each side depending on which one felt like riding, making for hassle free transitions. The amount of padding on the straps was amazing and the buckle cover saved my sanity with my two year old who loves letting himself out. The high back also surprised me, it has a ton of growing room that I had not been expecting. As for assembly, it took only minutes.

One of my BIGGEST concerns before using the stroller was that it would heat us in the sun (with it being black in the Florida summer, especially when it took trips with us to Disney) and I wouldn’t have enough room for my diaper bag. However, both of these concerns were put out of mind. Despite the stroller sitting in the sun, it never heated up and became uncomfortable for either of my children. In honesty, it seemed to breathe and I was super thankful. As for my diaper bag, I began carrying a tote around that I could simply store on the side of the stroller that I wasn’t using – and it stayed in reach!

To be honest, there are two things I would change. The hole in the back to make for easy access to the undercarriage caused the rear-facing seat to scoop in a bit (can be seen in picture). As well, I pray for an option to add a small cup holder to the front.

As for the rest? I can’t begin to praise how much I love about this stroller, it was definitely a game changer for our family!

BEST STROLLER EVER! Amazing value! (By Kristen Marie Sonnier)

This stroller is amazing!
I cannot say enough good things about it!

It switches seamlessly from infant to toddler by just pulling a lever and has two separate harnesses on each seat so you aren’t threading straps to switch it in the middle of the mall.

It drives like a dream, and the handles are very high, making it much more comfortable than most umbrellas to push.

it has special pockets perfect to slip your iPhone and keys into.

It reclines fully and the canopy is a great size.

Best of all, my son is very tall (37 inches, 34 lbs) and he fits this stroller with at least 5 inches of clearance between head and canopy and between his feet and the floor (so no dragging!!).

my only complaints are that there is only one cup holder and that the basket is smaller than most strollers (not a deal breaker for me).

If summer infant ever makes this in a double I will be first in line!

I use this as an alternative to a double. I have a 2 year old and newborn. When my 2 year old is tired he rides and it wear the newborn. Then, if he gets up I can flip the seat and let the newborn ride.

I plan to buy a buggy board by lascal for it in the near future.

BUY IT. You won’t be sorry.

BUY IT!!!! (By Denise Montgomery)

Ok so I bought this stroller about a week ago and I have used it for the past 5 days straight and I wanted to give myself enough time to establish an honest opinion. A brief background about myself, I am a single parent living in the city so I needed a stroller that was really convenient and worked well for daily commuting. I did tons of research before I bought this and to make a long story short BUY IT!! I also own a very overly expensive Inglesina that I paid over $600.00 for, and I love this stroller more.

Pros- Tall handle bars (Im 57 and no hunching over), it drives like a dream and moves over all kinds of terrain without any issues, the seat is well padded and if reverses from front to back so easily, its not super heavy, compact and auto locks which some strollers dont have, the price is budget friendly, HUGE canopy which is a must have to cover up baby from dangerous rays. VERY large seat which is awesome. My son is 13 months/20lbs and I can still use the reversible seat without his feet hanging. Cons- Its kind of hard to open for the first few uses but it will loosen up after a couple of tries, its not one-hand fold which is hard if youre holding baby and trying to collapse the stroller, cup holder is flimsy and I dont bother using mine.

Overall you cant beat the price and it rivals some features you get with Maclaren. You will not be disappointed! BUY IT

Convenient, easy to manage, and comfortable for kiddos! (By Amy Hammerschlag)

We have a newborn who is a little one (7 lbs. at 3 weeks) and she loves this stroller! I love all the features (i.e., storage pocket underneath that is see-through so you can see what’s in there, flip-down cover with peek-a-boo patch on top, etc.) and it was super easy to get unfolded and get her buckled in. I did purchase a little snuggle pillow newborn thing to go in to give her more cushion and make her more cuddly. It rides really nicely and smoothly and is super easy to fold up and pop out to be ready for her. I will update as she grows, but so far, I am very happy with my purchase!

Update – 2/2016 – We also have used this with an older foster baby who is 10 months old and he’s super comfortable in it.

We’ve used this stroller more now, and it’s really easy to flip from facing you to facing out. It seems to handle things on the handles or on stroller hooks much better when it’s facing out rather than facing in. Also, that cupholder falls off all the time. I think we finally lost it because it fell off so often. My only other criticism is that it’s hard to get in there in between the handles when the little ones are facing you.

Other than that, it’s super handy and doesn’t get hot in the sun. We go to Disneyland often and it’s great to have there. The only thing is that when it’s super crowded I have switched it to facing me because there isn’t any protection for little legs and feet out in front, just in case you have a crowd.

Good looking stroller, but did not work out for us (By Olga Boyarova)

We purchased this item for 1 year old child, used it from January 2014 through September 2014, and then the frame on one side just broke in half. I guess it happened because we did not fold it properly once, damaged it and it just broke, so I cannot blame it all on the stroller :o)
Pros:
– nice colors
– tall stroller, comfortable for tall person
– nice fabric
– really lightweight
– easy to clean
Cons:
– the seat is wide BUT not deep enough, my 1 year old was not totally comfortable in there
– after first short trip in light snow and salt it started to squeak
– not one click fold stroller, requires extra maneuver
– if it is fully reclined you cannot access the basket!
– very difficult to drive it with one hand, if you have to
– my daughter managed to put her feet behind and under footrest, so she could stop the strolled with her feet whenever she felt like it :o)

Overall, if you are planning to use your stroller a lot for walking, traveling, shopping etc, it would be wiser to purchase something more practical and sturdy, probably more expensive. We ended up buying another stroller.

It easily opens & closes (By Didi)

This is a cute & super-light stroller. It easily opens & closes. The basket is of considerable size for quick shopping trips, but not accessible when the seat is fully reclined…not an issue for me. The water bottle holder that comes with it does fall off easily (as stated in other reviews), but I don’t use it…I have my own caddy which also holds other items. It is definitely easier to maneuver with 2 hands; single-handed turns are doable, but not as easy and/or smooth. We took the 3D Lite with us on a recent trip, and it really came in handy. Most importantly, my little girl enjoys riding in it.

I really like this. We usually buy maclarens but after 4 … (By Kathy J.)

I really like this. We usually buy maclarens but after 4 kids I thought I was “settling” by buying a cheaper stroller. However, this stroller is fantastic, easy to use, easy to close, I love the canopy and the cupholder. Took a bit to get used to the way the seatbelt closes but that’s a minor issue. I really like the yellow color too.

Was really hoping that this would be a great stroller after reading many good reviews (By Mai)

Was really hoping that this would be a great stroller after reading many good reviews. I personally did not like 2 things. The sitting area was not very deep and had a large slope…so every time my 2 year old would come to sit by himself he would slip down. I have now another lite chicco stroller and he climbs in there comfortably. Also don’t know if it was just a default in mine, but front wheels always gave me a hard time and would have to pick up whole stroller and fix them to correct direction myself. Driving and smoothness was not so good because of those front wheels. My new stroller i see the difference big time! Paid a little more, but well worth it.

I will say i did like 2 things about it…the carrying strap and the large uv shade. Wish it was possible to make a stroller that has it all!!

I love this stroller (By Raven)

I love this stroller. After 3 kids and 5 strollers I finally found a great umbrella stroller. I wish this model was out when my firstborn arrived, would have saved me money that I wasted on vrappy strollers.

I am in love with this stroller (By Allison)

I am in love with this stroller! It is everything I wanted in an umbrella stroller. The wheels work great. The height is higher than any umbrella stroller I have used. Easy to open and close. I could not be happier with my purchase.

This fits the bill beautifully and I adore the yellow and gray colors also (By C. Dodge)

My priorities in shopping for a stroller were a large shade for my very fair skinned daughter and a compact fold. This fits the bill beautifully and I adore the yellow and gray colors also. We’ve been using this stroller for about 6 months already, generally for errands or 30- 60 min walks around our neighborhood. My daughter seems to be perfectly comfortable and the basket behind the seat is a nice size, plenty of room for a few items while shopping or a snack cup, sippy, sweatshirt, blanket, etc when we’re out for a walk.

This is a great little stroller for the price (By Kathy Nicholes)

This is a great little stroller for the price. It is a little heavier that I was hoping for but the sun shade and the cargo carrying pouch are more than handy. It does take two hands to fold and really to set up, but it is well made and is holding up well.

cheap alternative, but cheap product (By Lynze)

These work for keeping your baby warm and dry, but if you fold it up when not in use the plastic window gets really winked and my toddler hated it. My 6 month old didn’t seem to care. Also the part that unzipps is really small and pretty much useless. Wish I would have spent the money and gotten the brand I really wanted. If you want a great product check out Manito Elegance Beta Stroller Weather Shield / Rain Cover.

Folds up easily and fits flat on the bottom of our stroll … (By Sean Stovall)

This has been a savior for us as we live in a place that rains a lot and often unexpectedly. Folds up easily and fits flat on the bottom of our stroll so our baby bag can still fit perfectly on top which means we always have it handy for those unexpected rain. Not to mention, it works wonders in keeping baby dry without suffocating her. It’s sealed and breathable.

The rain shield is nice and chic for the stroller (By L. Liu)

The rain shield is nice and chic for the stroller, but one of the buttons at side doesn’t work, Amazon replaced one for me. The shipping is really fast but now both buttons at each side doesn’t work…I will keep it because it’s not a big deal while still a little disappointed.

Disappointed… (By MrsRobeastian)

Im disappointed with the rain shield. The shield didn’t last and it ripped by the edges. Im very disappointed and waste of money.

Great Stroller for Tall Parents (By erika)

I recieved this stroller as part of a product review from Summer Infant. My opinion is all my own.
First and foremost I LOVE how tall this stroller is! I am 6’3″ and to find a convience stroller that doesn’t have me standing in
a hunch position is hard to find! This stroller is so nice and light and easy to turn,even with one hand, it’s now my go to stroller! The large
shade is such a great feature on this stroller, when my little ones and I were at the splash pad it was a great little seat
for my daughter to sit under and not get beat down by the sun. It also keeps the bright sunlight out of her eyes when we go on
walks around our nieghborhood! Setting up the stroller couldn’t be easier with a foot peddle you press down on and the whole stroller sets up and
is ready to go, and same goes for folding it back up! It clicks into a folded down position and it ready to be loaded up into the trunk of the
car. The five point harness is awesome for my daughter who is quite the escape artist, it holds her in great and with the padded
shoulder straps I’m sure they wont dig into her gentle skin. The cup holder is great for my toddler son’s sippy cup or my water bottle, but
I wouldn’t recommend puting a top heavy cup in it, it will fall out like mine did. The basket under the seat holds my diaper bag and anything
we might pick up on our trips around town. The zipper pocket on the back of the stroller is nice to slide my cell phone into along with my wallet
which gives me easy access when I go to pay for purchases. My toddler even stashes snacks away in the pouch! I really love this stroller and would
recommend it to anyone looking for a lightweight stroller!

Pretty good stroller but no G-Luxe (By FrancesO)

We bought this when we couldn’t bring our G-Luxe on a cross country trip. It’s fine. At first I was so pleased, the seat is more upright than the G-Luxe , it was less expensive and it had a peek-a-boo window. However, by the end of two weeks in Brooklyn, staying in a third floor walk up, I began to compose little love letters to the G-Luxe.
Here are my complaints:
-It doesn’t always lock on the first try, so when you collapse it and then pick it up, it springs back open.
-It doesn’t stand when collapsed
-It feels slightly heavier than advertised (could just be me)
-The handling isn’t great. It often got stuck on cracked sidewalks. Like stuck stuck. I had to back up and take a jogging start once.

And here is the praise:
-Good value for the price
-Peekaboo window
-Really good lucking upholstery and colors
-Nice storage basket
-Excellent canopy

1st impression. Prt 1/2 (By newmama7983)

So I just received, put together and have used my new Summer Infant 3d Zyre. My husband put together our new stroller within a matter of minutes, wheels, canopy and cup holder. We bought this stroller as a second opinion to our full size Urbini travel system. I don’t know how much I love it just yet being that we have only used it once for a walk around the block. So far it is lightweight enough, but not to the point to feel like it’s going to fall apart. The cup hold if installed correctly I love and it works. The sun shade is huge and the recline is awesome. I will say, and it has been mentioned on other reviews, the harness is a little weird in that it does come out far enough through the legs. However I don’t see it being a deal breaker. My daughter usually cries after being in her stroller or car seat for too long but, she didn’t once in her new stroller and feel asleep on the way home. *Part 2: It’s been a month since we got our Summer Infant Stroller. I love this stroller, we use it almost eveyday, going on walks around our neighborhood. Sometimes my hubby and I fight over who gets to push her. It pushes great over smooth and moderately rough terrain, great sun shade, great basket. I was able to put 2 gallons of milk and a few other small groceries in the bottom. Next to my full size Urbini this is my new favorite stroller.

Such a great stroller!!! (By Tiffany Adkins)

This is my new favorite stroller! I received the Summer Infant 3D Zyre to test and I fell in love with it! The day I received it I put it together in minutes by myself! I have taken this stroller on walks, to the mall, to the zoo, even to south by southwest music festival and really every time I have needed a stroller since the day I have received it.
The steering is great and makes it really easy to walk through crowds of people and easy to maneuver through those closely placed racks of clothes. One of my favorite features is that the back reclines… So when my son has been sleepy, while we are out I can lean him back or when he’s awake he can sit up and get to see everything! This stroller is super easy to unfold and collapse to put in the car, which is amazing to me with 2 small kids! When the stroller is folded it has a great shoulder strap that you can through on shoulder and carry it, which is super easy because it is so lightweight. Really I couldn’t recommend this stroller anymore!

I’m not in love with this stroller (By Elizabeth W.)

I’m not in love with this stroller. It’s just okay. The shade is huge, but it also makes an annoying click sound when extending/retracting. The wheels are plastic so the ride is noisy and not soft. The recline is great. The crotch buckle has a weird and seemingly unnecessary fabric cover which makes your child look like he is wearing a fanny pack. I wish this buckle cover was removable because it is bulky. Basket is big enough to hold my Skip Hop Duo if seat is not reclined. You cannot hang anything from the handles because stroller will tip. Cup holder is useless, but there is a pocket on the back of the canopy where you can fit a small water bottle or a phone. Open and close fold takes some getting used to. Does not stand on its own when folded.

Summer Infant 2014 3D Lite Convenience Stroller, Tangerine (Discontinued by Manufacturer) Reviews

Lighter and more feature-rich than many, lots of bang for your buck… (By N. Taylor)

Whenever I buy something, I read all the reviews and research A LOT. And even then I’m not sure I’m making the right decision. There aren’t that many reviews for the Summer 3d Lite as it seems fairly new to the market, so I thought I’d try and do a comparative review in the hopes of helping.

I wanted a durable, lightweight travel stroller, a decent recline, good wheels/maneuverability, comfort, storage space, 5-point harness, and for it to be easy to fold/unfold. i wanted all this for the minimum price possible as I already have an UPPAbaby Vista and a Chicco Liteway (I previously used the Chicco for travel but I had to leave it behind for an international move as I opted to take the Vista – we do lots of walking, and it’s much cheaper to replace an umbrella stroller!)

Initially I was considering the First Years Jet Stroller, which weighs just 11 pounds. It has a 4* average rating from over 1100 ratings, AND costs under 45 dollars – seemed pretty good. But I went to try it in store and it was awful – no recline, wheels didn’t work properly (i couldn’t maneuver it on the floor – my son is 18 months and weighs about 25 pounds, about half the recommended max weight) my son wanted out! It felt cheap and flimsy so i looked at the reviews more closely – theme was that it was good for the price, and that the wheels are awful but people overlook that as it was so cheap. So whilst the Jet may be good/better than expected (for the price), I wanted something that was genuinely good, even if it meant spending a bit extra.

I came across the Summer 3D Lite and ordered it. I was a little concerned as I could not find it in my local baby store, so I was buying blind. It seemed to fit my requirements, and weighs 12 pounds, just one pound more than the Jet.
Like the Jet, it says it accommodates children up to 50 pounds.

When it arrived it took just a few minutes to pop the wheels and the canopy on, and presto, it’s done. It reclines ALMOST flat, which is fantastic, although the recline mechanism requires two-handed operation, which is a little awkward. My Chicco Liteway also reclines almost flat, but it has a more convenient one-handed recline. The seat padding isn’t as generous and the material isn’t as nice as the Liteway either, however the Liteway weighs in at a heftier 17 pounds – 5 pounds heavier than the Summer 3d Lite, and is considerably more expensive. The 3d Lite’s recline is also better than the First Years Ignite Stroller (the model up after the Jet, Cheaper than the Summer 3D Lite, but at 14 pounds, it is also heavier).

The folding mechanism is easy but it takes a couple of practices, I had to read the instructions to find the second lever. I managed to do it using one hand and my foot, so I could do it in an airport holding my toddler. It locks automatically, which is great and doesn’t need an extra hand – unlike the Jet/Ignite, which require the user to manually lock the frame (this may not seem like a big deal, but in an airport it really is!). Unfolding does need 2 hands, simply because the lock needs to be disengaged whilst holding the stroller upright. Overall, the fold/ unfold is fairly similar to other umbrella strollers, including the Chicco Liteway.

Sunshade is OK, slightly larger than some (much better than the Jet’s shade), although it can’t be rotated like the shade can on the Liteway. I don’t think the shade is a particularly big deal though.

The 3D Lite features lockable front wheels for rougher terrain, which the Jet does not, although in order to lock them they have to be perfectly aligned and forward facing. I’m not sure about other umbrella strollers, but on the Chicco Liteway (and the Vista, but that’s a different kind of stroller, so maybe moot) you can lock the wheels whilst they are in any position, and as soon as the stroller is moved and they align with the frame, they lock into place. I hope that makes sense. It just makes it a little fiddly to lock the 3D Lite’s wheels, but I don’t think it’s a deal-breaker. The brakes on the back wheels are more easily accessible than on the Jet.

Other thoughtful features on the 3D Lite include a carry strap (could be padded but not a big deal), a pocket for cell phone, wallet/purse, keys…, a cupholder that can be moved so it can be used by the parent or the child (remove the cupholder before folding if you put it at child’s height as it fits where the stroller-lock clips to the frame). Actually I would remove the cup holder before travelling as it looks like it can easily come off.

I’m not sure I’m too keen on the fabric that covers the harness buckle, but this is a minor detail.

From my research, I only found a few options that were lighter, none of which recline, and some were more expensive. The lighter options include the Jet (cheaper, not significantly lighter, no recline), The Chicco Capri (same price, weighs 11 pounds, lower max child weight limit, limited recline), the Macalaren Volo (lightest on market, expensive, no recline), UPPABaby G-Lite (no recline, expensive), or the really cheap, no-frill 20 dollar options ( which look awful for parent and child IMO). I also considered the First Years Ignite, which is cheaper, but I ruled this one out due to its additional weight and limited recline.

Overall, I think is is a great stroller. It has lots of features for both the weight and the price. This was the best I could find, and was better than many more expensive options. I also purchased an open box deal from Amazon Warehouse Deals, stroller was perfect and brand new, saved myself 13-15% off the retail price which makes it almost comparable in price to the First Years Ignite.

I hope that helps!

UPDATE: I just got back from my overseas trip and used the stroller for three weeks. i liked it but didn’t love it because it isn’t as easy/ comfortable as it could be to steer. Unlike most strollers, the handles are straight inline with the frame rather than ergonomically curved inwards. This makes it hard to steer with one hand. I still think it was the best value umbrella stroller with all the features I was looking for at the lightest weight, recline was good, easy to fold up and down, and held up well through airport handling. I would give it 3.5 stars if possible.

Dad of 5 Review: Compact Like A Combi Stroller, But Better. Our Favorite of Many. (By Colin McGraw)

We have five young kids, and have been through our share of strollers. We’ve had both Graco and Chicco travel systems, a quad stroller, a Combi, and a few cheapo umbrella strollers to boot.

I’ve developed an opinion of what I like and don’t and I LOVE this stroller.

Here’s the good:

1. Much like a Combi, this stroller folds to a very compact size, which means it will fit into the trunk of a sedan and still have plenty of room for groceries, gym bags, etc.. This is vital, since it means you don’t necessarily need to buy an SUV or minivan because you’re worried about trunk space (which was somewhat of a concern with our quad stroller and travel system strollers).
2. The cup holder is SUCH a good move. It may not sound like much of a selling point, but the Combi didn’t have one and it drove us nuts! The bad news here is that the cup holder is a little small, such that even a medium McDonalds cup fits tightly enough that it doesn’t touch the bottom.
3. The storage space under the stroller is ample and smartly designed to stick out far behind the seat of the stroller. We have a gigantic Dad Gear backpack as our diaper bag, and it easily fits in the under-stroller storage. No other stroller we’ve used has been able to do that! On a few strollers, we regularly hung the diaper backpack from the back of the stroller, which caused it to tip sometimes if there wasn’t enough weight in front.
4. The grips are nice and high (so taller folks don’t need to hurt their back bending over), and the foam grips are very comfortable!
5. The frame is metal! I thought this was awesome because I may or may not have broken the frame of our Combi after driving it up the side of an embankment, pretending it was a skate park ramp.
The Summer 3D Lite feels like it will be much more durable and even more maneuverable due to its rigidity.
6. The five point harness stays in place pretty well and has a fabric flap to dissuade kids from fiddling with a fastened buckle.

The main drawbacks are the cup holder size, and that the folding/unfolding motions take a little getting used to. It’s also not quite as convenient as a travel system if you have a small baby in a removable rear-facing car seat.

Overall, it’s probably our favorite stroller we’ve tried! Definitely a top pick for toddlers and bigger!

Love ALMOST everything about this super lightweight, stylish stroller. (By Nicholette Papakalos)

What I love about it:
1. It’s so LIGHT! So nice to get rid of my 25lb, huge travel system stroller that took up my entire trunk space.
2. The carrying strap – Just fold it up (which is fairly easy) and toss it over your shoulder. I think my purse is heavier than this thing.
3. Nice thick straps that keep baby comfy.
4. It reclines nicely.
5. Great height. Both me (5’6″) and my SO (6’3″) have no problem pushing this around.
6. It’s got a cup holder and storage space.
7. The additional silver sun shade you can pull out.

What I don’t love/think could be improved:
1. I really miss having the little “snack” table area in front of baby that the large strollers have.
2. The foot rest seems flimsy, but hasn’t been tested by us so take it for what it’s worth.
3. I wish you could move the sun shade in front of the baby (as in, our old stroller it detached from the back side and I could move it to different positions depending on the position of the sun).
4. I don’t like that the additional pull-out shade is shiny silver. When you pull it back in, I wonder if the sun could reflect from it to baby – But I have nothing to back that up as we haven’t used it too extensively in the direct sun yet, so I could be completely wrong.

The pros definitely outweigh the cons, and I did a lot of research and I found this one to have the least amount of cons out of lightweight strollers – even the super expensive ones!

Wonder well priced stroller (By PumpkinsGrandma)

Best lightweight umbrella stroller. It was a very good value, perfect canopy with silver UV protection. We used it daily walking our 2 year old granddaughter along the beach – up to 5 miles at a time. Nice big basket for toys and sunscreen and drink holder for a water bottle. I would highly recommend this stroller!
