Lightweight and compact travel rod stroller: top 12

Travel Ideas

Which stroller to travel? This is the question you ask yourself if you are a travel addict parent. Take a nomadic cane stroller, when traveling with a baby, this is the choice of many of you! And thewhat to choose for a cabin stroller, that is, can you take it on the plane with you?

I admit that the stroller, that’s not my thing (maybe because I’ve always had only a big 3 wheel stroller from Jane to tackle the snow back home!). Indeed, I only made 2 trips with my stroller (Malta and Rome) and the visit of Montreal with a buggy loaned by the family!

But I realize through all your interviews with traveling parents, that many of you leave with one or even two pushchairs depending on the number of children! So here is the top of the nomadic pushchairs! So, this article is made with your opinions, my various tests of strollers at childcare fairs, and with feedback from parents traveling!

I also chose you several strollers depending on the weight, not more than 6 kg (only one at 6.7kgs, added in February 2017)! It’s up to you to give us your opinion on these models in the comments!

What criteria to choose your travel stroller?

Here are the main criteria I was looking for when buying a travel stroller and that I’m still looking to sell them on the store.

Lightness of the pushchair

Having had an 11kg stroller, I can tell you that it is much easier to handle an ultra light stroller.

Indeed, everyone knows that cities, subways, etc. are not made for strollers! Young parents, you must regularly carry your pushchair with baby in it! So it is better to be light! Less than 6 kg is a very big advantage! But with 6.7kg, the Squizz fits in my top strollers, because thanks to this weight it can stretch out!

Congestion

This is a question of practicality for families who wander often! Even in the trunk of the car, you will be happy if your stroller does not take up all the space, because you, young parents, will also have to store the cot, high chair, changing bag, etc.

Folding system for a compact stroller

the pushchair folding system is extremely important! Indeed, you will open and close your compact stroller about ten times a day! And if you struggle every time, you will change strollers! So, you might as well choose it from the start!

One-handed folding to be able to carry baby in the other is often a crucial asset!

Reclining or semi-recumbent position

Another important point, but one that we must ask even more when we want a compact and lightweight cane stroller! In fact, most travel strollers, due to their low weight, do not offer the“lie down baby” option for a very specific reason: it’s hard not to tip the stroller over when baby is lying down – just a balancing problem!

For those who have achieved this feat, it is almost the perfect cane stroller!

Here is the top 3 strollers recommended by youtraveling parents

1 – The must-have for travel strollers, the Babyzen Yoyo

No need to present the Babyzen Yoyo stroller, it is THE travel stroller par excellence!

Babyzen got to do everything I wanted in a stroller! The Babyzen Yoyo is usable from birth with the 1st age 0+ kit, she is slight, she folds easily… Etc. I had the opportunity to test it at Effluents mums, and I’m really won over (you have to do a little 3rd to take advantage of it … no, I’m kidding!).

So no real downside if not for the price! But beware, it will follow you throughout the early childhood of your toddler, and surely little brothers or sisters! And it’s a great gift to put on a birth list.

2 – Compact and lightweight strollers at MacLaren

The Mac Laren strollers are sure values! Many of you have chosen them to go on a trip.

Several models are available with each different options: The Mark II is the lightest of the brand, and will surely replace the Volo in the long term. The choice of Globetrotter or Mac Laren’s Quest allows you to have a versatile stroller. Some lie down, others don’t! It’s up to you to see which one suits you the most!

3 – The Quinny Yezz travel stroller

A very light stroller which therefore does not offer the extended option! But a stroller so light that we forgive him! The shoulder strap makes it easy to carry this stroller. It folds and unfolds easily to be carried when stairs break our feet for example.

Robust, good value for money!

It was you who said it:

We still have our tireless YEZZ, the more you use it, the more you think it’s awesome. Do not hesitate. article here

For this trip, we opted for an ultra compact stroller (the quinny yezz) for walks on geological sites. article here

We bought the YEZZ which delights us. It is really perfect (light, super manoeuvrable and really compact) its negative point is that it cannot bend down for a nap, but being small (1.60) I tilt it and it rides lying down super comfort.

No longer seems to exist!

There you are, I hope this selection will allow you to see that there is really more and more models. I let you download the comparative table.

Quite frankly, in my experience, start with a stroller that will follow you for a long time, versatile, rather than the very expensive 3 in 1 wetsuits and of which the majority of accessories only serve you 6 months and remain for years in the garage! But prefer brands that have long been recognized over Chinese copies for the safety of your child!
