  • Moves smoothly! Very sturdy and quality design. Seat adjusts and can be flipped around. Doesn't have a snack tray or top storage. The stroller breaks down in two large parts and takes up trunk space. Jul 20, 2019

  • I love the click connect, it is so convenient. The car seat is comfortable and easy to clean. I just don't like that the stroller basically only folds in half- it takes up the back of my Rav4 SUV. Jun 05, 2019

    Love that the baby seat can face parent and that it has so many different positions. Love the large basket underneath, pushes very easy and especially love that it declines flat like a bassinet. Apr 22, 2019

    I ordered this for our newborn baby to be. It seems durable and light weight enough to last. Dec 03, 2018

  • Love my travel system works great. I love that the carseat connects and the stroller will continue to grow with my baby. Both are easy to use, no issues. Nov 30, 2018

  • I love this stroller and car seat combo. However, I do have one complaint. There is no locking feature for when you fold the stroller up. It makes it difficult to get it in and out of my trunk. Nov 16, 2018

  • Set up was a little frustrating but once we got it up and running I love this travel system. We got the color lark and it’s perfect to use for my baby girl and baby boy. I Nov 04, 2018

  • Snug ride car seat is great and very safe, and the stroller has large wheels which should roll over everything and is easy to assemble, and fold. Association has many seat configurations. Sep 23, 2018

    This travel system is easy to maneuver and fold. The carseat is super light and easy to connect to stroller. Lots of storage space while not being bulky at all. The large tires make it easier to drive Aug 10, 2018

  • I love this model! It's so versatile and I can have the baby anyway I need which is handy. system a little wobbly due to the 360 wheel in front when stripped to bare bones but expertly stable still. Jul 07, 2018

  • Saw this travel system in store for a great price. Purchased the product after looking at the reviews online and being able to try it out in the store. We think it will fit our needs perfectly. Jun 09, 2018

    What I can say ? I love this system after trying other travel systems. It gives your baby very smooth ride , easy transfer to and from the base if you use a car seat. Base is easy to close/open . Jun 04, 2018

  • I wanted a very versatile stroller that was light weight and functional. This stroller had it all. The simple clock and unclick of the car seat has been great. Maneuvering, weight and brakes all great Mar 19, 2018

    Overall a good system at the price point. May not be ideal for travel, not as compact, but it's not a deal breaker. Easy to clean, set up, maneuver. Loved cell holder, smaller storage than expected Feb 22, 2018

    This travel system is everything you need for an infant on the go. The carseat base was easy to install and moving between the car and the stroller is a snap. The stroller is light and folds easily. Feb 12, 2018

  • I have the modes 3 lite stroller with a full solid cargo pouch; I LOVE it! The infant car seat was so easy and great but we switched to convertible at 3 months (99th %) because he was too heavy in it. Feb 11, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    As a mom who is always out and about, a great travel system is a must! This is a modern looking stroller that's easy to maneuver. I love that I can use the infant seat right onto the frame! Feb 10, 2018

    Car seat shade does not cover fully. Something weird about the cover on the bassinet and it doesn't stay in place. The basket is large and very convenient. Feb 09, 2018

    I fear that the quality of the materials may have been compromised in the interest of light weight construction. The wheels seem more flimsy and heavy use would take a toll. Feb 02, 2018

    This is a great travel system. I love how you can put the seat both ways and that the car seat sits right in also. I do wish the stroller was easier to clean especially with a toddler. I also would Jan 28, 2018

    Overall it’s an awesome system and gives you a variety of options. The stroller and infant base a space savers, while storing the toddler seat and base is a space killer. Definitely our favorite. Jan 27, 2018

    Love this safe and neutral color car seat! Stroller had a great push and easy maneuverability. Love that the seat can parent face or forward face, and how easily the car seat clicks into the stroller Jan 24, 2018

  • Great maneuverability and very light weight for size. Basket not as "extra large" as described, barely fit our diaper bag. Love the forward AND rear facing options. BUT It barely fit in our SUV. Jan 21, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Love the option of the child facing you or facing out in both seat configurations. Very easy to snap the seat in and go and you can fit a lot in the storage basket. Lightweight and easy to fold up. Jan 18, 2018
