Traveling is really an experience you can’t miss out on in life. As I would say, once you get the travel bug inside of you, it’ll be hard to get it out.
Since young, I have always loved traveling – not only because that means I’m on vacation, but also because I get to experience new cultures and explore different sceneries. Unfortunately, for many individuals, the idea of traveling soon becomes a thought of the past when they start a family. Understandably so…with kids and a full time job, who has the time to make travel plans? One of the biggest concerns most parents have with regards to traveling with a kid is trying to figure out what stroller they should be using for their travels. The biggest advice I can share is to be sure to pick out a stroller that is LIGHTWEIGHT. In fact, when I consider lightweight strollers, every pound counts!
As I mentioned in my review, the Mountain Buggy Nano is definitely a first class travel stroller, weighing just 13 pounds. What is really awesome about this stroller is the fact that it is has a very small footprint once folded – so much so that it fits into an included satchel bag which has a shoulder strap for easy carry. Once folded, this stroller measures just 20” x 12” x 22” and believe it or not, this stroller was designed such that it can be carried on when you’re flying. Other stand out features include a simple two step folding mechanism, a one handed unfolding mechanism, and rear wheel suspension. It also has a decent storage basket.
These five strollers are absolute saviors when it comes to traveling light. Now that you have a basis to select the best lightweight stroller for your travels, be sure to compare the features of these strollers in greater detail before making the choice! Feel free to check out my stroller reviews at my website, Mommy Stroller or send any questions my way!
