Excited to Use!
I LOVE the gender-neutral color on this travel system! The fabric seems easy to clean and I think it will hold up well. The car seat comes highly recommended, and snaps in easily to the stroller. I don't care for the fact that the car seat can only be snapped in when the additional bar is installed, because it requires one more step to switch between using the stroller seat and car seat when you have an older baby who sometimes rides one way and sometimes the other. It is nice that the stroller seat can be removed when you have an infant who won't be using it. It makes the stroller slightly less bulky for the car and will keep the seat cleaner in the long run. I LOVE how this stroller folds up using a handle under the seat and lifts up, instead of folding forward onto the ground. You can hold the car seat in one arm and fold and stow the stroller with the other without setting either on the ground in the rain. The canopy and basket are both bigger than the Graco models we were also looking at, and when the car seat is used with the stroller the two canopies overlap completely to protect baby from the sun or rain. When we received the stroller the box was missing a set of pins to install the rear wheels, and Chicco's customer service both on the phone and online was excellent and hassle-free. We received replacement parts with (almost) no questions asked and at no cost to us within a week or so.
The car seat seems well-designed and is easy to use and adjust. I wish the arc on the canopy was just a tad wider, because it it difficult to push it all the way back past the seat if you don't want it, but that hasn't seemed to prevent other users from recommending it. The seat base was easy to install with the seat belt (in one car) and with LATCH (in another), and the seat comes in and out of the base quickly and easily. The audible click when installing the seat onto the base is nice to make sure it's connected properly! We're expecting our little guy any day now and I feel confident that he will be safe and comfortable in this car seat!
