Which travel system

(8 Posts)

I'm looking for a travel system with the following criteria and am struggling to locate the perfect one:

3 in 1 - carry cot, car seat and pushchair
Pretty compact, doesn't have to mega small but not too bulky
Different components click in and out easily
One handed collapse mechanism
Compatible with isofix base
Comes with extras such as footmuff, rain cover
Price around £300 (ideally a higher original price but dropped to this on special offer)

I've looked at graco tour but reviews are it's too bulky, a mamas and papas one who's name I can't remember but is current front runner and a hauk (sp?) one but the reviews say it's a pain to put together.

Are there any others I should look at? Any advice would be appreciated, this will be my first baby and I'm finding it a bit of a minefield.

The joie chrome is great, as is the graco evo, both have carrycot option but it's not a requirement to use from birth as the seats are suitable. There's also the graco sky which is similar. I wouldn't discount an oyster 2, although that is probably pushing the budget quite a bit. You could get a britax b agile with carrycot and car seat for about that price. I have had 3 hauck pushchairs in the past, one was very bad, one was reasonable but annoying and one was quite reasonable. I probably wouldn't buy another of their pushchairs unless something had changed in terms of quality. With this sort of budget you have better options imo.

Thank you so much for replying. That's given me a much broader range to look at, I'll add them to the list (and cross off the hauck)

thanks

Is it the mamas and papas zoom?

I think this is currently on offer for about 300 inc car seat

Yes that's the one mumof3. Do you know much about it? Any good?

Mumof3xx Sat 15-Mar-14 19:34:03

I own one!

Dd is now 11 months and i still love it!

I have the purple version which I don't think they do anymore. The carrycot was lovely, dd was in it until about 5.5 months and it looked so comfy. Seat unit lies completely flat which is great.

Raincover is good, easy to put on

Seat unit and carrycot are both easy to attach and detatch

It's not a one hand fold unfortunately and is also a little wide but I've only found it a problem in really small shops

I haven't had a car seat with it though so cannot comment on that

Thanks that sounds great. I liked the look of it too. We're having a boy so was probably looking at black anyway.

We got a universal mamas and papas footmuff to go with it and it's a good fit so would recommend those too
