Mountain Buggy Nano Review

Mountain Buggy Nano is an inexpensive unisex stroller. With its ultra compact size (22″ wide) and lightweight (13 pounds), it meets regulations for charge-free airline carry-on luggage. Mountain Buggy Nano is designed for ease and functionality. It is convenient, easy-to-maneuver, infant car seat-ready, and foldable. Simply in two-step folding with the press of two buttons, the stroller collapses quickly into its own travel bag; otherwise, it unfolds itself the other way around. Travel bag and shoulder carrying strap included in the kit. The compact fold of the Nano makes it easy to be stored or carried. Hence, it is indeed a true companion for a travel-loving family.

Mountain Buggy Nano Review, Features & Weakness

Mountain Buggy Nano Review

If you purchased a Mountain Buggy Nano, you will not need to purchase additional adapters because it is infant car seat ready. An on-board car seat adapter in the form of elastic bungee-cord-like straps, which you can use to connect and hold your newborn car seat to it, is in place. It is compatible with most of the leading brand infant car seats.

Nonetheless, Mountain Buggy Nano is not recommended for newborn babies without car seat. It does recline to about 450 from its upright position, but not fully horizontal. In attaching an infant car seat, you could face it both ways; but, it is advisable to face it towards you for safety reasons. Unfortunately, one drawback is that you cannot position your baby facing towards you if you use the stroller alone (without car seat).

The Nano can be used for children of approximately 4 years old or max weight of 44 pounds. It features one-touch brakes and rear-wheel suspension to offer your baby a comfortable and smooth ride. It is not for all terrain, though. It is equipped with an adjustable leg rest, a large sun canopy, an under-seat basket, a multi-height padded safety harness, and a 2-position reclining seat (but the seat is irreversible). It uses no battery that makes you untroubled as if you need to fold and unfold it.

Many people have positive remarks of this travel stroller. But, still there is no stroller that is perfect at all. One common problem is with the spring in the front wheels, i.e. hard to lock and unlock. Somehow, if you have this problem and call Mountain Buggy directly, they will send you the replacement kit. Mountain Buggy Nano also has no cup holder. The handlebar is non-adjustable, and it has a narrow space between the handlebar and the canopy.

Based on user preference, some users complaining about the inconvenience of the canopy that covers the handlebar. The lack of a covering for the mesh at the rear of the seat, behind the child’s head, is also a big problem since children need protection from the elements, especially around their head. All in all, Mountain Buggy Nano is definitely a good and compact travel stroller.

Mamas and Papas Armadillo Review

Mamas and Papas Armadillo is a lightweight unisex stroller (17lbs) with a lot of features but in a reasonable price. It is so sturdy and can accommodate a newborn baby up to a 50-pound child. It has a one-handed fold system, and is very compact with fold dimensions of 21.6?W x 28.3?L x 11.8?H, which makes it easy to store.

M&P Armadillo is easy to maneuver. The use of EVA tires and all-wheel suspension creates such a smooth ride in case you hit a bump. The front wheels are swivel, but can be locked straight for uneven terrain. Compared to more expensive strollers with large wheels, M&P Armadillo might be a bit bumpy, somehow. A flip-flop friendly parking brake is on the right rear wheel.

M&P Armadillo has a huge canopy which is easy to open and close. The rain cover is included and attached to the hood.  Nonetheless, there is no mesh side for ventilation. The peek-a-boo window on top is small but with a magnetic closure instead of a noisy Velcro. There is also a small toy loop on the inside of the canopy.

The spacious and padded reclining seat is great with its adjustable foot rest. When the stroller is folded, the seat is inside so it keeps clean. The basket is large enough and accessible from the back as well as the sides of the stroller because it is made of stretchable mesh. Still, it requires extra effort to get a bigger shopping bag into it since it is too close with the seat underneath. If you like travelling, you can set an infant car seat on it. M&P Armadillo works with Maxi Cosi and Aton car seat, and luckily, the adaptor is cheap.

Reclining seat is easy to do and operated with strap system. It has a one-handed lever that can stop in any position. It can fully flat. However, some people do not think so. The seat also does not sit fully upright which make it probably uncomfortable for some children.

In addition, the handlebar is non-adjustable. And, it is covered with foam that makes it uncomfortable to grip for a long time. Many people are also complaining about the color options. Take for instance, if the M&P claims that it is black in color, in fact, it is not that truly black. It is such an off black ashy in color. If it is said that it is blue indigo, it is actually more purple than blue. Moreover, there is no cup holder and bumper bar available in this stroller.
