Great stroller with lots of options.
September 20, 2018
My son-in-law installed the base for the Keyfit 3 in my car so that I could take my new grandchild in the car, but I wanted to have a stroller to take her out when necessary. I found the Liteway Plus on the Chicco website. When I read the description it seemed perfect--and baby's parents could borrow it to use as a smaller stroller/carrier when they travel by air. I watched video reviews online, and although it was reviewed well, it was described as being complicated to change from stroller to car seat carrier. What bunk! There is nothing difficult about this stroller and it feels great to push. When the stroller arrived it needed a couple of wheels put on and the cup carrier, and then from what I had previously watched on the videos was easily able to change it from stroller to car seat carrier mode. It snaps right in, and you feel secure that the seat is on right. Yes, this is like an umbrella stroller where there are two separate handles, but they are nice and long and covered with grippy foam so that you are not bending over when you push; the spacing of the handles is very natural. The wheels are not tiny like an umbrella stroller, so the Liteway Plus gives a smooth ride. I leave the carriage near the front door, so that if baby is sleeping when she arrives, we can place the carrier in a very secure place, roll her to the family room and let her sleep.
ProsWell constructed, front wheels can rotate or be fixed. Quiet, good performance wheels.
Several positions for stroller seat.
When used as a carrier, built in cover protects the stroller seat to keep it like new.
Nice, long handles, well positioned.
Easy to collapse and put in trunk.
Takes up much less room in the trunk than the (really lovely) keyfit stroller that was part of the Keyfit 3 system.
ConsThis is not a lightweight umbrella stroller--it has some weight to it which may be a con for some.
Best UsesAs a second stroller for the Keyfit 3 system, for travel or grandparents.
