Re: Does this stroller exist??

We've taken our Peg Aria on the plane, (checked at the gate) and other than getting trashed by airport staff (broke the cupholder and the tray ) it did GREAT! It folded as small as I could expect, full recline, full shade, small but functional sling underneath (enough for a snack, diapers, and the ergo lol!). I'm not sure if that's just too big for your needs, but a normal umbrella stroller gives up back support and suspension for weight and size. Hard compromise, but where else can they give up weight and bulk?

We also use a quimby, which I LOVE. It's big and bulky though. Sorry!

Re: Does this stroller exist??

Sorry to hijack but we were going to order a McClaren Triumph for our summer travels and I see people recommending the Quests which are another step up. Can anyone tell me the difference and if it seems worth the added cost?

I can't help you. I have a Vogue, which was replaced by something, but I'm not sure what. Maybe the Triumph?

I have the Combi Savvy XL. It has two cup holders (not 2007) model I use them for snacks. I would get a combi. It will do everything you want is light has shoulder strap. I have had 4 combi's in 13 yrs and love them all. Check ebay and craigs list. Mine is used and it is great. A Post doc at work was moving back to Japan and was selling all his baby stuff. (I got mine for $20)

The Quest has a larger seat, different(usually nicer more expensive) fabric to the seat and offer more recline positions. It also weighs a couple lbs more. Its designed to accomidate younger babies. I have personally owned all maclaren models in the 9yrs I have been a Mom I love mac's. But I wouldnt use a Triumph for a baby younger then 9ish months.

Question Re: Does this stroller exist??

Another hijack- sorry mama!

What Maclaren stroller would be best for a 20 month old?
