Nice design but no full recline
on April 30, 2012
I bought this stroller two days ago because I liked a few of the features e.g. the bright colors, light weight, and good quality in general. Most strollers are black or dark colored which gets super hot for the baby. I prefer the light yellow and blue colors of this stroller. I compared it with the Quest Charcoal/Crimson color model (per the store this color is exclusively sold by Babies R Us). The latter was 70 dollars more expensive, (mine was only 180 dollars) so I checked the description on line. Many of the Quest models had different colors but the same description including the two that I compared. I found out that the more expensive model at Babies R US is actually a different design all together, even though the description of the features was the same online. The one at Babies R US fully reclines (180 degrees), whereas the Submarine version reclines about 120 degrees at the most. And the recline / release handle on the more expensive model is easier to use, just a light press between the thumb and the index and middle finger. The bottom break lever is a bit different but works on the same basic principle. A lot of the features are the same design, e.g. the belt buckle, the wheels, the seat padding, the seat extension (the legs can rest horizontally and don't have to be bent down at the knees all the time); the hood and detachable rain cover; the metal rods, the top stroller handles, and it folds the same way. The stroller size when folded is about 105 cm long, by 25 cm wide x 20 cm deep. I have not found the weight in the papers, but online it said it is supposed to be 12.1 lb. I gave this review a four out of five because the company labels many different models as Quest, and they are quite different, the company should number the models aside from naming them. The included brochure was a two page highlights in English and 3-4 pages of drawings. I wish they had more text information with the drawings. I received the stroller 3 days after I ordered it and only paid about 10 dolors for regular shipping.
