Ultra Modern, Ultra Lightweight
Bold, sleek styling sets this stroller apart from other strollers in the lightweight crowd. The aluminium frame is coated is an attractive black matte color and contributes a lot to the lightweight of the stroller. The polyester fabric is soft and also easy to clean. Nice details such as the Baby Cargo brass name plates at the front and rear add to the unique look of the stroller.
The stroller can be folded down in a matter of seconds and folds down to a compact size, so you can put it into the back of your trunk with ease after a tiring day.
One thing we love about this stroller is that it can be used from birth due to its adjustable backrest which can adjust the seat down to almost a full recline position. The adjustable leg rest is very useful for when your child reaches toddler years and wants to stretch out their legs. The adjustable canopy is nice, but rather average in size so we wouldn’t recommend strolling out in the sun for prolonged periods.
Safety – Belts and Brakes
The 5-pt safety belt harness has been designed to be pretty difficult to unlock so you’re child won’t be able to unlock it easily so you can be confident that they’ll remain safely strapped into the seat whilst your on the go.
The rear wheels have separate foot brakes which can be locked by simply pressing down your foot on either brake. The front wheels have a lockable function which is useful for when you’re strolling over rougher surfaces and want to ensure the wheels stay straight so you don’t stray off course.
Umbrella strollers aren’t exactly renowned for great storage so we weren’t expecting much here. There is a nice zippered back pocket which is handy for storing those small items such as keys or baby bottles. The bottom cargo basket is reasonably sized, but a little awkward to access. It has several pockets which provide greater organization of your gear.
Pros and Cons
Uniquely styled, exceptionally durable, lightweight, highly adjustable, comfortable padded seating, this stroller has a huge amount going for it which puts it high up in the lightweight stroller league.
Available in 3 different colors, so you can find one which closely matches your taste.
The sun canopy is a bit too small so it doesn’t provide a big amount of shade on those blazing hot summer days.
If you want an affordable lightweight stroller that has a unique sense of style, but doesn’t sacrifice functionality then the Baby Cargo Lightweight Umbrella Stroller should be high up on your list of choices. Baby Cargo is a new brand to the stroller world, but they have made a strong impression on us already with the 200 Series. This umbrella stroller is highly recommended by us.
