Pros:Extremely light, travel-system compatible, feature-rich

Cons:None substantive, really

The Bottom Line:

The absolute best travel system stroller on the market.  The one stroller you can use from newborn to 3 years old.


We have this stroller and absolutely love it!

While pregnant and with an aching back, hubby and I spent many a weekend testing out strollers in baby supply stores.  The main objectives were to have a (1) light, (2) travel system stroller.  The Peg Perego Vela was just introduced to the market for 2010, and boy do we feel lucky that the timing was right for our baby .

Pros:
Light – the stroller itself only weighs 9.5 pounds.  Other so-called lightweight strollers weigh 22 -29 pounds.  That makes a big difference when you have to lift it in and out of a vehicle constantly.

Travel system – the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio carseat snaps right into this stroller, so if the baby is sleeping (as he often does when the car is in motion), we do not have to wake him up to put him in the stroller and go!

3-wheel design – ok, so technically it has 4 wheels but the front two are close together so it functions like a 3 wheeled stroller.   This means it is more agile and easier to turn than a standard 4-whelled stroller.

Umbrella stroller on steroids/Features galore – the stroller itself has an adjustable, reclining back, a removable snack tray, a footrest, a storage basket underneath, a built-in drink holder, and a solid bar handle.  Many umbrella strollers lack all these features, yet this stroller is just as light and convenient!

Opens and closes in one hand motion – some other strollers we tried had 2 or 3 steps you had to perform simultaneously just to open or close them. Also, it stands up when you close it.

Beautiful  - stylish Italian  design gets compliments from passerbys (seriously).  It comes in 4 colors, also.

Big canopy – the canopy folds down very far to protect our son from the sun and elements.

Durable - almost every day I go on a 2 mile walk during the late morning, and every night hubby, baby and I go on a 1 mile family walk.  The stroller has held up great so far!  I do use a wet wipe to clean the wheels before rolling it back inside my home due to sidewalk germs.

Best of all…we will only need one stroller from day one to toddler stage!

Cons:
When it folds up, it is wider than an umbrella stroller.

The basket is not huge and some things can be hard to get in and out of it

The drink holder is narrow and only holds cups/bottles t he width of a standard aluminum soda can.

The see-through window in the canopy is hard to see through due to the material used for that window

Final thoughts:
Peg Perego is an established, reputable Italian company that makes carseats, strollers, and kid-sized ATVs. My stroller and carseat were made in Romania and Italy, not in China.

As you can see, we did our research and found this to be the best stroller by far.  We are still singing its praises.
