Have the Flash EX and the Combi Connection car seat and am very happy with both. The Flash is solid feeling with the car seat on top--the seat fits securely. I tried the seat on the new Maclaren Easy Traveler and was unimpressed as the car seat wiggled a ton on it. The Flash also has nicer/bigger wheels than the Mac. The tri fold is super--we have a tiny car and this stroller fits well in the "trunk". It also comes with the triple pouch accessory at the handle which actually holds a 24oz bottle of water (or 2) and a wallet/cell phone. The basket is virtually not reachable with the seat on top but my small diaper bag hangs safely draped over the handle so it's not a problem. I can't afford to buy too much anyway these days! Haha

The Combi Flash EX is such a great product; I have no idea how I lived without it. It is so lightweight, portable and folds so compactly that I can put it in my Combi Travel Bag (included with City Savvy...another awesome Combi product) and carry it onto airplanes and store it in the overhead. The people at Combi must have worked 24/7 on this product! It works great with my Peg Infant Seat. You do have to remove 2 small plastic end caps on the front bar, but it only takes a couple of seconds and is explained very well in the instructions. Combi definitely has a winner on their hands! I will recommend the Flash EX to all my friends. It's a great value!

I bought this carrier shortly before I flew with my baby for the first time. We have a Peg car seat, and I didn't want to schlepp my Peg stroller through the airport, etc. while on vacation. To my surprise, I find that I use my Combi Flash much more often than my Peg stroller. It's very lightweight, is very easy to pop open, and has held up well through various trips. I also like that it has a handlebar that goes all the way across, because it is much easier to steer (especially one-handed). My husband also had a tricky time removing the plastic parts that you have to pull off in order to make this work with the Peg; once they were off, though, the stroller has been a breeze.

I would give one word of warning: you do have to be careful with this stroller that it is (1) popped all the way open (there's an audible clicking noise when this happens) and (2) that the car seat carrier is strapped in. The Peg carseat sort of just rests on top of the carrier, which makes it a bit susceptible to tipping over on uneven surfaces.

Verified Purchase
We recently purchased this to go with a Peg Perego car seat that we were given for our second child. We had used a full-blown travel system for our oldest. We rarely used the stroller because it was bulky (heavy to remove and took up most of the trunk) as well as hard to maneuver. I switched to a lightweight, umbrella stroller as soon as my oldest was able to sit up.

For our second child, we wanted something less bulky and easy to use. This stroller fits perfectly with what we wanted. I had a c-section, and at 2 weeks after surgery was easily able to remove it from the trunk, open it one handed and put the car seat in. It takes up very little space. It closes and opens smoothly. It also handles extremely well- very easy to turn and move through small spaces.

My husband did say that it was difficult to remove the pieces required to adapt it for the Perego car seat. It took him awhile to find the alleged directions (I had to keep insisting that they were there- men and directions)-- to his credit, it was simply a small footnote on the instructions and it was difficult to follow. We had thought of sending it back, but are very glad we didn't.

The Perego seat doesn't "snap" in- it sits in and there is a strap that goes over the car seat. It's actually easier to use. You don't have to worry about snapping something in and out.

The only downside that I've found- and we had the same problem with our last stroller- is that you can't reach into the basket underneath once the car seat is in place. There are great holders on the handles, however, for drinks, keys, cell phone, etc, so it hasn't been a problem.

I love this and would highly recommend it for someone who wants something lightweight, easy to use and that doesn't fill up your trunk.

I'm writing this review to tell other potential buyers that this "universal" car seat carrier does not technically fit a Baby Trend Snug Ride infant car seat (another great product). The description listed on this web site states that it does. Instead of returning it, my crafty husband made a few of his own alterations to keep our baby girl safe. Ultimately, I was looking for a universal car seat carrier that was black and/or gray instead of navy blue, and this is what I found.

Despite feeling misled, I'm rating this carrier four stars because it serves its purpose very well, especially for those who have an infant seat that is actually compatible. My only other complaint is that the basket is difficult to access.

My husband and I love the Combi Infant Car Seat Carrier. We did not want a bulky, heavy stroller system so we opted for this simple frame. We've used it almost every day since our daughter arrived seven months ago. It is lightweight, folds compact into the car trunk, and can be opened in a snap with one hand. The Graco Snug Ride infant car seat fits easily into the frame.

My only complaint concerns the wheels which are hard to use when turning corners on some surfaces. If you plan to shop often with your baby, the mesh basket may not be large enough. I find that the basket keeps me from spending too much money when I shop so I do not mind the smaller size.

I have never written a review before, but after 4 months of using the Flash EX stroller I have to encourage more users! I have tried others' car seat strollers and they are not nearly as light and easy as this one. I love that it folds in thirds, because you can travel with it in your car AND it fits into the overhead compartment on an airplane, which means that it won't suffer the insults from baggage handling. I use it with the Safe Seat, which fits wonderfully without any adjustments (just use the seatbelt!). The only downside is that the underside basket is small, but I think the small portability and ease of use (including the carrier strap) makes it very worthwhile. My favorite baby purchase so far.

First off, stroller frames in general are awesome. Don't waste your money on a heavy travel system. Just get a stroller frame. Now, this frame specifically is great especially for the price. This is meant for going to the mall and little things - not taking long walks etc. It is super easy to fold and unfold. It's very small and easily fits in the trunk or even the front seat. The only negative is that it is sometimes hard to steer, but you get what you pay for. I am totally satisfied. Just be aware that your child will out grow it quickly. Even when they are able to fit in the carseat, they will grow tired of staring at the ceiling and you'll need a regular stroller where they can see out. This happens around 5-6 months.

I bought this Combi Flash frame stroller after reading reviews here and elsewhere, and I think it's fantastic. Much better than the Kolcraft--which I had for my first child--which is so much bulkier/heavier and doesn't fold nearly so small. This pops open with a snap and my huge Eddie Bauer car seat (from a graco travel system I received as a gift with my first child) fit perfectly once those plastic pieces were popped off. (I was able to pop them off with a screwdriver in, like, 2 seconds, following the pictures on the instruction. Husband's DIY skills not necessary!)

I got this for a trip to NYC, delivered to my hotel, and for getting around airports and the city's streets, it was simply ideal. Light, mobile, stable, etc. Super easy to carry up/down stairs when accessibility was not ideal. Most amazingly, it is small enough to just go into the trunk of a NYC cab without folding it at all! Brilliant.

At the airport, it folded and locked teeny tiny at the gate, so they didn't need to mistreat it when bringing it down those stairs to load into the plane. (Has anyone else witnessed the stroller toss that often takes place at the gate?! It's why I got my oldest child the Quinny Zapp, which can be carried onto the plane--in its carry bag--as her carry on!). Back in London, this is so agile on and off the bus and tube system, that our lives at home have gotten easier because of it. Much of London is stroller unfriendly, so having such a lightweight and agile stroller system has been so helpful. The basket size is amazing given the small size of the whole stroller. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. It ROCKS!

I loved the fact that this folded in half so that it gives you more space in your trunk for groceries. It is soooo narrow that it can fit in between any ailes in stores. It is really easy to open and close. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I had to lift the infant seat up every time I wanted to get to my diaper bag underneath. The basket is soooo small and very hard to get to when the infant carrier is in place so I would put my cell phone, keys, and wallet in the three pockets on the handle and that solved the problem.
