So we road tested the 5 in one travel stroller last week during our trip to San Antonio. It converts easily from a car seat to a stroller and we were able to take Morgan out of the car at the airport and wheel him to security without missing a beat. It gave us one less bulky piece of baby equipment to deal with at check in–since we were already hauling the pack n play!
PROS: Light, easy to convert, easy to steer, convenient to travel with as it did the work of two pieces of baby gear in one.
CONS: As with most hybrids, it isn’t the best of both worlds–the seat belt fastened across Morgan’s lap and we had to slide his legs under to enter and exit the car seat. The stroller did not have a sun shade which was all too important in the San Antonio heat. Jeremy also found that the handle was a bit short for those taller than 6 feet.
Overall, I am so glad that we have it as we are facing 4 more flights between now and the end of August! I am sure that we will get a ton of use out of it! I would not, however, recommend it full time to pull double duty.
The stroller was a huge source of curiosity while we were in the airport and hotel lobby. I swear that I sold at least 5 of them by showing the different features to other travelers 🙂
