Handy to have
on August 12, 2011
Having gotten a stroller travel system and after several months of lugging the stroller part in and out of the car I decided that I needed something lightweight and less bulky. I decided to purchase this as the travel system I already have is Safety 1st so I knew the car seat would be compatible. It works well, weighs nothing (at least compared to the stroller) and is nice b/c I can leave it in the car all the time since it's only use is for shopping etc where I don't want to take baby out of the seat. The basket part is huge, the sun shade is nice and works quite well and it's really easy to fold up.
My only complaint are the wheels, the front ones are designed to rotate when you change direction (like most strollers are) however I've noticed that these don't rotate very well, resulting in difficulty to control it. It pulls to either side if the wheels didn't turn properly and doesn't turn very well when you want to change direction. This seems to be an issue only on slippery floors (like stores) and carpet (doctors offices). Outside, walking to/from the car etc it's fine. I'd almost rather be able to lock them so they don't rotate at all.
