Perfect for airline travel!!!!
August 29, 2019
I have been parenting for over 20 years, and have owned more than that # of strollers. This fall and winter we will be traveling with an 8-10 month old, and I did not want to check my good strollers, and my husband refuses to wait for gate checked items. After MUCH research I decided on the Pockit+
First the Negatives
#1 is the color - CHERRY RED - it is coral! Not at all what I was expecting or hoping for. the harness pads are a bright red, but the actual stroller fabric was not. I debated returning it for just that reason, and will probably end up with a replacement seat fabric at some point.
The push - it pushes like a typical umbrella stroller, and if you are super tall (hubby is 6'2"), the handle height is doable, but not what he would prefer
The fold - practice, practice, practice :) So you don't look like an idiot at the airport gate or shuttle, lol!
The FOLD! One you have it down, it goes up and down very easily and fast. Over the course of 5 days, we folded and unfolded it close to a hundred times (flights, busses, etc). It fits in the overhead bin of even small ERJ/CRJs.
The recline is not bad. enough my 8 month old fell asleep and slept for walks even over uneven pavement/asphalt. Not a lay flat, but good enough for a walking nap.
Carseat Adaptor - I had not planned to use this at all, but after a little research, our Nuna Pipa infant seat fit these. it took a little trial and error, but it ended up being a huge help, esp to carry everything through the airport!
The basket - not huge but good enough for a few diapers, a sippy, water bottle, and wipes. You still need to carry a real diaper bag for a full day out.
The canopy. same as basket :) not huge, but better than the original
We bought a Joker Bike strap and hooked it to the handles and that worked perfect for carrying when it was folded.
I absolutely recommend this if you will be traveling and need a stroller that folds tiny
