As the mother of three kids under four I've had my fair share of strollers and the Trip is the best high quality, lightweight, all-feature stroller I've owned. I only wish it came as a double as well as it's superior in almost every way to Maclaren strollers.
** UPDATE 7/25/2011 - This was posted on Inglesina Baby USA's Facebook page - "Buongiorno Inglesina fans! We are happy to inform you that the 2011 TRIP and the 2011 SWIFT strollers were recently approved to hold a max allowable weight of 55lbs (earlier it was just 40lbs). Even though the user's manual still mentions 40lbs, be confident in the new max allowable weight of 55lbs. **
- Maximum allowable weight of 55 lbs.
- Lightweight stroller with aluminum frame (15 lbs)
- 4-position deep recline
- Adjustable footrests
- Compact when folded up - fits easily in the front passenger seat when I need to leave the cargo area clear.
- Large waterproof canopy with visor is larger than the Maclaren Quest or Triumph's.
- Tall Ergonomic soft handles are great for average to tall parents
- Rain cover included, stores in pocket in canopy
- 6.5" inch wheels and all-wheel suspension to better handle bumpy terrain
- easy one hand two-step fold. It's It is 2" longer and 1" wider than the Volo when folded up due to it's larger wheels and padded seat. A little longer but the same width as a Quest when folded.
- Rugged but comfortable waterproof, heavy-duty polyester material that is easy to clean.
- The dark colors hide dirt well.
- 5 point harness with padded shoulder braces
- Storage basket holds up to 6 lbs/ 3 kg.
- Side carry handle
- For "minimalist" travel, you can put a Roundabout or Marathon in it, tie it with a bungee cord (without the child inside) and push it one-handed while carrying your child, with a backpack. Good option if traveling alone
- More suitable for babies 6m+ and older because the harness is a little large.
- No snack tray or bar (for that you need to get a full-size stroller) but reality is, it's safer to not have your baby munching on food while you're not seeing his face (if they start choking you may not hear them, they don't always cough).
- Cannot be used with a car seat
If you are looking for a stroller that reclines that you can use everyday and still travel with, I highly recommend the Inglesina Trip.
