Hello, and thanks for visiting my site. I will be guiding you through the latest creation from those clever people over at Ergobaby. The Ergobaby Metro Compact City Stroller.
As the name suggests, this is their crack at the highly competitive stroller market. We will look at all the key features that Ergobaby hopes will differentiate their line with other top industry brands. Will look at reviews, price and how it compares to other strollers on the market.
OK so this is the interesting part. First of all, the Ergobaby Compact City Stroller is designed to be ultra lightweight. It’s only 6.3kgs and can folded with just one hand. Yes that’s right, like a magic trick, with a shake and twist this state of the art baby stroller can be folded and compact enough to carry in one hand, like an oversize briefcase.
Hence, the name, they really weren’t kidding about the compact part. As the picture below shows! And of course like all things Ergobaby, it is designed to be a snug fit to your baby’s little body for extra comfort. It also has smooth ride suspension, for when you’re out traversing the busy city streets.
Now unlike the Ergobaby 180 stroller, you can’t lift and turn your baby’s carriage to face you. A drawback I’m guessing that comes from the ability to be able to fold the compact stroller so tightly. Still don’t let that put you off, as there are planets of other great features to this particular stroller to marvel at.
. You have the recliner seat.
. The fully flat position that is available for newborn babies. ( we will come to that part later).
. A large SPF 50 sun canopy with peek a boo window.
. A nice adjustable leg rest.
. The mesh covering can be covered for protection against the elements in rain or cold.
. Tough rubber puncture free rubber tyres.
. Smooth ride suspension.
. A large basket underneath that holds upto 4.5kgs with a hidden backseat pocket.
. You also get a 2 year warranty, so you needn’t worry if anything goes wrong.
OK so here the thing. All strollers are not made equally. Sure at first glance they all are designed to hold your baby in a carrier on wheels right? Well actually there is a wide difference in quality of materials and how durable they are, and that’s for starters. The Ergobaby Compact City Stroller is a very well made product, from a trusted brand, albeit one better known for their top of the line baby carriers, than their strollers.
But the materials used are great for comfort and ease of cleaning, they are machine washable after all. But what sets this stroller aside is the fact that you have all these great features, and it is specifically designed for ease of use and carrying. You can literally take this stroller anywhere, so long as you have a free hand.
I just don’t think that right now on the market, there is a stroller of this high quality that will be this lightweight and compacted for ease of use, and be durable enough for you to trust putting your baby in.
OK so the Compact City Stroller is designed to be used from 6 months right up to 18kgs. However, if you want to use this stroller from birth, then you can invest in the Metro Compact City Stroller Newborn Kit. It does allow you to have a fully flat lying position for your baby and it also faces you. It does however cost £129.90. It is at least easy to install and fits on to the stroller framework in a couple of minutes.
It has the same SPF 50 sun canopy and some adjustable reclining positions, other than flat. It is also ultra comfortable with the same strong padded materials.
Well in my opinion yes, as the Ergobaby Compact City Metro Stroller will set you back £299.90. You will be hard pressed to find a stroller that is this easy to transport and with as much comfort for you and your baby for a much better price than this.
So if you are looking for a new stroller, and you tend to go travelling a lot with your baby, then you might do well to consider investing in this particular stroller. Also, aside from the newborn kit, you also have the option to purchase the Metro carry travel bag for £24.90. As seen below.
In my view, this stroller is no doubt top of the line, and certainly pushes the boundaries of what a stroller can do, whilst being so lightweight and compactable. There are so many positive reviews about this product, and even if you are not happy with the quality for some reason, as I have stated earlier, you have the 2 year warranty for your own reassurance.
I hope that you found this review useful and will consider clicking on this link to go through to the main Ergobaby site and check out the Metro Stroller or anything else you might need for your little one.
