the Trip that makes my life easier {Inglesina}

TripStrollers are like cars. There are so many makes and models but some are better suited than others when you consider terrain. You wouldn’t drive a Prius through the back woods as you wouldn’t parallel park a Hummer in the city. My new-mom mistake was picking a stroller as if they were all made the same, but after bumping into every single rack at Macy’s and leaving red-faced and embarrassed, I realized my needs in a were better suited elsewhere. In a smaller, more manageable stroller.

Showing off their Italian roots, Inglesina is well known for their stylish quality and reliability, and their Trip stroller is one of the best lightweight on the market. It’s easy to maneuver, easy to fold, and perfect for everyday use. I’m a petite girl, only 5’0, my husband is 6’1, and we both love this stroller.

Before I really get into anything else, I need to address the leg rest. When the Trip first arrived I couldn’t figure out how to adjust it down, only straight out or up (but no one’s knees buckle backwards) and I thought it may have been a defect. I even watched a couple videos and couldn’t find any answers there either, just people who thought it was a normal feature of the stroller. But I found it. It does fold down. The levers are on the sides of the rest hidden just beneath the cover, so be careful not to overlook it!

One of my favorite features about the Trip is the canopy. It’s huge! You want a big canopy to make sure you’re always able to provide a little shade. Baby skin is extra sensitive and we need to make sure we take extra precautions to protect it. Did I mention it has a visor? But not only does trip have a great canopy for shade, it also folds down an extra notch to block out mother nature. No more wind burn! Awesome! There’s also a small window on the top with a velcro closure and a medium sized pocket on the back that fits a wallet, phone, and keys with room to spare. And we all know how fast kids get tired. My son usually falls asleep within 5 minutes of being put in the stroller. Something about watching everything go by and hearing the noise just puts him right out. With the Trip I can put the back down to almost flat. Now he can actually lay down and not have to try and sleep with a crooked neck (ouch). My son is almost 8 months old and is starting to want to crawl over, under, in and out of everything. The 5 point harness is something I definitely need in a stroller, and this one has nice cushy padding over the shoulders, so no matter how passionate he is that day with escaping, I know he’s secure and won’t be digging lines into his skin. The pictures below show the Trip in a fully reclined position.

If you’re going out for the long haul and need to tote around your diaper bag, there’s a mesh basket on the bottom that can hold your belongings. A medium sized bag fits and it’s perfect for storing extra snacks and drinks, but the seat can’t be fully reclined if you need to access the basket. And the navigation is effortless. The Trip turns on a dime and is very easy to push. I’m often required to stroll around unpaved areas and the shocks really minimize the bumps on the ground. It’s a dream to push thanks to the rear suspensions, which are truly unique in an umbrella stroller. And when it’s all said and done, folding it up is done in a few easy steps. Lift up the middle lever in the center with your foot. Step down on the right lever and squeeze handles together. Fold down until it locks. Easy! There’s also a handle on the side for carrying around, making hauling a stroller easier than ever.

If you’re on the market for a lightweight stroller you can stop your search here. And with 5 colors to choose from, Inglesina won’t disappoint. It’s easy to use, stylish, has all the bells and whistles available for only $199, and that includes a rain cover and cup holder! Totally affordable. Be sure to check out Inglesina’s other models and like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to stay in the know!

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to
    start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Thank you for posting this review and FINALLY explaining the adjustable legrest!! I viewed video after video and looked at the (not-so-helpful) instruction manual and could not figure out how to adjust the legrest until I read that THE LEVERS ARE HIDDEN! I just found them, and was like “DUH! This is soo easy!” My daughter is 2, so I’ve been looking for these levers for about a year. Other than the hidden levers, I love this stroller too! Thanks again!! Your review just made my life easier for our Disney trip starting tomorrow!! :)
