No the quest doesn't have it. I bought the quest thinking it did and was gutted when I realised I hadn't done my research properly! The hood on the quest is next to useless at keeping the sun out (I only bought it for holidays!)
Thanks for your reply, it's useful to have it confirmed. Argh, that's really annoying. I don't know if I'll be annoyed by the bigger size of the XT, and I never really get on well with add-on accessories. I know there's a clip on shade you can buy but I like it to be built in.
If id have thought more carefully about it all I think I would have gone with the XT. I find the Quest a bit flimsy although obviously if you're after something small and convenient that's probably your best bet. The XT is quite big but still easy to fold.
Ah, so if you pull the hood forward your child is exposed at the back? I do want the Quest for its neatness, I'm worried the wheel on the Techno XT will stick out too much. I seem to live in a town full of cafés with crammed-together tables.
Yep, it's a bit of a compromise between pulling it down to keep out the sun at the front and not exposing the top of the head at the back! Other than that, the Quest is a great buggy for busy places/small spaces, although I'm used to a BJ Versa so frankly anything else was always going to be a bit daintier
