I bought the Evenflo Aura Select Travel System for my first child and didn't really try anymore out. Being a new mom, I didn't think about practicality and went for looks and price. I liked the price and the look of the Evenflo Aura stroller. My husband and I used it a lot in places like the mall and long walks. I loved the basket underneath, the cup holders, the seat seemed comfortable and the hooded shade over the top.

If I had it to do over again, I would not buy the Evenflo Aura Select Travel System. It does not maneuver well. After struggling through many stores I was fed up. Sharp turns are nearly impossible. I would end up having to do several point turns constantly. The wheels are big and would get stuck. It is extremely bulky. It filled up as much room as my Sit and Stand Double stroller in my trunk. My sister had a Graco and it maneuvered very well, so I know all strollers are not like this one.
As for the car seat, it worked well. I never had any problems with the handle. My son rode in it until he was 20 lbs. Some travel system carriers are very heavy, even without a baby inside. This one is probably middle range. It's not light, but not super heavy. It's easy to fit inside the base and take off if you're in a hurry. Installation of the car seat was easy. My husband did it in the hospital parking lot after the birth!
