This affordable travel system has even more features than some of the more expensive systems.
A travel system is a stroller and a car seat that click together; getting your whole travel system as one purchase ensures they’ll click together easily without an adapter. This travel system has the option for you to click the car seat on top of the regular seat, or remove the regular seat to save weight. The Chicco KeyFit car seat is a top rated car seat which is very easy to click in and out of the car and stroller. People like that it’s sturdy and safe, and the harness isn’t too much of a pain to adjust.
This is one of your more affordable travel systems, but it’s still very rich in features: it’s got a height-adjustable handle, a parent tray with cup holders, and a one-hand self-standing fold. Parents love self-standing folds because you don’t have to worry about your folded stroller toppling over or rolling away while you fumble for your keys. The weight is pretty decent, but maybe a tad heavy if you have apartment stairs to deal with. When you lock the car seat into the stroller, the canopies don’t just meet but overlap, creating a relaxing little nap bubble for your baby to be protected from the elements.
So what’s the price of affordability? Well, this stroller isn’t the most maneuverable over rough surfaces, so if you have a ton of bumps in your neighborhood, you might want to look into a stroller with more robust wheels. There are also some complaints about the durability of the materials: the canopy is a tad flimsy, the one-hand fold can get sticky with repeated use, and the wheels can start to squeak after a while. (Pro tip: the squeaky wheel problem can actually be solved with oil).
