Summary: My only complaint about this stroller is that there is no cup holder. Otherwise, easy to use, light (compared to my Graco Mosaic stroller, it's over a 10-15 pound difference) and the color rocks. My daughter seems comfortable and naps just fine in it. The straps are also easier to use than the Mosaic stroller. Steering is so easy!
Summary: We bought this stroller for our 10 month old that was cramped looking in the narrow seat of the Jeep Wrangler All Weather stroller we bought four months ago at Toys R' Us. My husband is 6'6", and I'm 5'10" and he wouldn't even bother to push the old one because he had to bend over so much and even I was manuevering with just my wrists and fingertips because it was so close to the ground.
Summary: I got this stroller in a local store mainly for shopping and doctors appointments. Ultimately, I've decided to sell it because I didn't want to own 3 strollers and this proved insufficient for vacations or longer errands.
Small amount of recline - enough to sleep or provide a little support to a younger baby (I used this first around 4mo).
It's reasonably small folded.
The fabric is nice and it has a sturdy feel to it.
Summary: If you are going to travel by air, I would highly recommend this stroller. It is lightweight, convenient and easy to pack at the last minute before boarding a plane. However if you are considering this as an everyday stroller, I would be a little more reluctant in my recommendation. The handles do not extend out far enough from the wheels so you constantly bang your feet against the back wheels as you push the stroller.
Summary: We got this stroller for when we travelled. We didn't want to get an expensive 2nd stroller only to lose it in another continent (we know someone who lost their $200+ Maclaren at the Bangkok airport) but we didn't want to get a cheap, uncomfortable stroller either. The Chicco umbrella stroller was the perfect fit for us. Not too expensive so that we'd sweat if we lost it travelling and our baby girl, now 15 months old, likes it very much.
Excerpt: We brought this pushchair from tesco for £50 when my son was a year old so 2 and a half years ago. It came in a red colour and with it we received a rain cover. There was minimal assembly required clipping in the wheels and adding the hood and we were ready to go. The stroller has 2 reclining positions so baby can sit up or lay back slightly however it only slightly reclines not fully so therefore is suitable from 6 months + not birth.
Excerpt: I decided to move from the travel system to a pram due to space. I did like the orange colour on this pram and knew that I would be able to use it again whether I had a boy or a girl. I havn't been disappointed either. It has a lightweight frame and is easy to transport. it doesn't take up much space in the boot and is easy to carry. Also, easy to open, even with one hand.
A cheap, easy to use stroller, comfy for baby and parent.

Excerpt: My sister came to visit one morning and we decided to 'nip' out to Ikea to get a few house bits and have lunch out, thinking we wouldn't be long we didn't take a stroller for my then 18 month old. He could walk for a little while and enjoyed it but still very much relied on his afternoon nap. We realised we were going to be longer than expected so we had to buy a stroller to make do, something cheap that would lay back slightly so my son could sleep.
