"lightweight and reversable…"
Bought the Sola push chair and car seat and have found it to be very good. It is light, folds small and quite flat, and has a good size basket underneath the seat. It has an adjustable handle bar which is useful for when my husband pushes the pram. I like that the pram and car seat are reversible and can face both ways. The hood is very large and has a clear section so you can see your baby when the hood is up. It lays flat so your baby can sleep and also sits up very straight. It is easy to adjust the seating position. There was a good variety of colours to choose from.
The only flaw I've found is that you need separate attachments to join the car seat to the frame. Forgetting the attachments caused problems, but other than that a very good Travel system. I would recommend it.Read moreLess

"Very good pushchair…"
Sola is very nice padded, very high back rest but not wide enough
Steering is nice and easy, both way facing seat, adjustable handle, big basket.
Not the best to hang changing bag on the handle but it is working - i do like it anyway
big and nice hood, rain cover bit to thick but is ok.
Folds easy and is not bad size. easy to clean and wash.
What i don't like is when your baby gets heavier quick like mine (12 months 82cm, 1280gr)pushchair star being to heavy and not that smooth to steering and with winter cloths it will be hard to put in baby
Thats why am changing to lighter buggy
I would highly recommended.Read moreLess
"Superb handling and lightweight…"
This is a mid-priced travel system and I'm very happy with our choice. It looks nice and comes in a variety of vibrant colours with nice optional extra seat liners and footmuffs. The Sola footmuffs are expensive and very long - I might be thankful for this when the baby is older - but you can also use standard M&P footmuffs too which are shorter and less expensive.
We didn't bother with the carrycot and we were able to use it from birth without any problems. We did however get the car seat adapters which we use with a Maxi Cosi Cabriofix seat. (There are two types of car seat adapter for this pushchair so you need to make sure to get the right ones). It can be used parent-facing or facing the world and is really easy to switch. It can be folded with the seat attached if it's facing outwards. The seat is incredibly simple to attach - just drops on and clicks into place. The buckle is my least favourite feature of this pushchair as it is really quite stiff though I suppose this makes it more difficult for a child to release.
It folds up quite small in comparison to other travel systems. The wheels are removable if you wish though we rarely ever need to do this. The shopping basket is small but adequate and easy to access which is good. Reclines fully flat and has several recline positions. Very good, large hood too (with window) and rain cover.
The best things about this are the price (in comparison to some higher end systems), the good looks and variety of colours available, the weight - much lighter than some of the tanks around, and the manoeuvrability which is really brilliant. Can be easily steered with one hand (and regularly is in our case). I have no problems recommending this. Our baby is nearly 9 months old and we still haven't felt the need to get a compact stroller yet as so many others do as this is very light and compact for a travel system. Good product.Read moreLess
Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, for the price paid I would definitely recommend. Able to switch easily between carseat, pushchair and pram (carseat and adaptors have to be bought separately). I love the fact it's reversible, this was one of the reasons we bought this system, babies grow out of pram so quick I find it reassuring I can see my daughter when we are out walking but when she's bigger I can turn her so she can see all round.Read moreLess
