"Excellent buggy but canopy too small…"
We have been using this buggy for our son since he was 4 months old (now 6 months) and he really likes it. He is on the slimmer side so the slightly narrower back is perfect to prevent him from slouching and falling to one side as he can't yet sit up unsupported. It is so light and easy to manoeuvre and I love how modern and stylish it looks.
It has 2 seat recline positions but doesn't lay very far back so if your child likes to snooze lying flat, this won't work.
The basket is on the small side and because it's so light, if your child is not in it, it cannot support very much weight on the handles - it will topple over - but this isn't much of a problem.
The other downside is that the canopy is very small and doesn't provide enough coverage on sunny days compared to other buggies. The rain cover (included) is really good though with elastic hoops to easily put it on the handles and straps on each side to hold it in place - so well that I use it to cover him up well on windy days.
Also the footrest is not adjustable so while our child is small, his feet hang off the end without support.
In spite of these minor issues, the buggy is definitely the best on the market - I'd definitely recommend!Read moreLess

"Easy to push with one hand…"
I love my micralite! Seriously, it's the best pram I've ever pushed. It's even good on rough terrain. It's much easier to push than even the Maclaren.
The hammock seat is really comfy for babies and toddlers alike.Read moreLess

"I love this buggy for its easy steering and lightness.…"
I love this buggy for its easy steering and lightness. My son (2) is very comfortable sitting in it and the adjustable handles make it really easy to push.
Big wheels at the back make for easy going over bumpy surfaces and the swivel front wheels means it turns well.
It has a hidden pocket under the hood so you can put a few things like phone, key and purse in there without it being obvious and swipeable.
I can't find where to hook the pump and it falls out of the basket when the buggy is folded so that's a bit of a pain. As is getting the hood back in the holder.
My only concern is that the seat back is mesh - presumably to stop a sweaty back in summer - but I am wondering how cold that will be in Winter with a cold wind on it.
Overall I really like it.Read moreLess

"The big advantage of this pushchair is that it has…"
The big advantage of this pushchair is that it has air tyres at the back which makes it easier to push generally especially with a heavier older child in it and much easier over any kind of rough ground, gravel or grass.
Although it would appear to have quite low handles from the measurements provided by the manufacturer, they can be adjusted a lot and very easily which is an advantage over comparable strollers such as the Maclaren Volo. This feature can also help if you find that your feet kick the rear wheels
The seat is nylon mesh which is light. It can be removed to wash. It is a hammock style seat and fits itself around the child so will fit larger children perfectly adequately. The seat also has two positions so again more flexibility than some strollers. My three year old says it is comfortable.
The fold is easy and the fact that the pushchair then stands alone can be handy. I find unfolding slightly more awkward and now unclip the safety catch and then come round to the front of the pushchair and push down on the front of the seat to click it into position.
This pushchair does not fold as compactly as an umbrella stroller and is bulky and heavier.
The storage basket holds loads but is easiest to access from the front and is divided by a strap running across it.
The rain cover comes in a handy bag but I find it a faff to unfold and put on. It has a springy 'bar' across the widest part of the seat which seems unnecessary and makes folding up again difficult. A simple sheet which attached to the hood and at the footplate like Maclaren ones would be much better.
The hood springs out to fully unfolded [I need to wiggle mine to encourage it]. I find it a good size and as my child is three her head is right up inside it and well protected.
I bought a liner for this pushchair but found the design to be not well thought out. The liner attaches only at the bottom of the seat unit with velcro tabs and has side wings and so crumples down every time my child gets into the seat. It is made of a mesh material on the side the child sits on which I find to just be a crumb storage area and they are reluctant to leave via the washing machine.
Generally I would rate this pushchair higher than a small wheeled stroller for my needs. It would suit children over one year old best. It came with a footmuff and raincover which made it good value compared to other lightweight buggy/strollers.Read moreLess
