Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

I love my BJCM. It has a simple fold that is super easy for travel--the fold strap becomes a carry handle. We use it at Disney, and it is perfect for public transportation.

Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

Maclaren... they have a strong worldwide presence and if something breaks/goes wrong with your Mac in Europe you can probably find a place to fix it there!

I personally have a Mac Ryder (Albert Thurston) which is $$ but freaking AWESOME in terms of its options. It's got the larger wheels of the Techno but is built on the lighter frame modeled after the Quest. So it only weighs 13lbs. VERY easy to travel with. I throw it over my shoulder with no problems. It is on the long/tall side so if you are shorter you might not like the push. But all four wheels have suspension which makes the uneven streets a breeze to maneuver.

So i say Mac, in whatever form you like

Oh and i do have a BJ and while i do love it, i wouldn't want to travel with it... but that's just me!

Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

We want a new lightweight stroller and I narrowed it down to the Chicco (as others said) and the Uppa - the lightweight Uppa's have on that reclines and one that doesn't - I like no recline as my son will sleep with or without the recline. I'm waiting till the new ones come out - hopefully in a month or two and will get the really light Uppa. The Chicco was very very nice (the newer version that wasn't out when I got mine) but it was much heavier.

Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

They have one called the Aprica Presto on clearance at BRU and it is awesome! It's very comparable to the Cybex Callisto but it's only $79.99 (clearance price) it even has the same kind of built in carry strap. I just saw it in person the other day and I liked it a lot.
I'm still planning on getting the Onyx though just because it works as a travel system with my car seat.

ETA: I didn't really like the Mclarens because their handles are much lower.

We have a Combi from Babies R Us. It is slightly bigger than an umbrella, but has a basket (med sized, but has a bar in the middle of it), tray for kiddo, fully reclines, and has a pocket on the back. Really easy to use and as far as I can tell is comfy.

Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

I tried my son in the Aprica and I liked it but his head was hitting the top already at almost two so it wouldn't last very long. Not a Mac fan either - they don't turn well.

Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

I like my Maclaren, too (Triumph, I think?). It reclines, but I would not call it a deep recline at all.

We have a Joovy Kooper. I love strollers but almost always wear baby instead. I do love the sun canopy on the Kooper and the recline is pretty deep.

Re: Compact reclining stroller recs?

FWIW, we took our BOB to Europe and it was AWESOME. We carried that bad boy up and down and into every subway we took. It was a touch bulky, but awesome to have.

Otherwise, I love the Cybex lines and considered getting one for our YDD. Have fun shopping!
