Quinny, one of Europe’s most respected and stylish stroller brands, has broken the mold and simplified summer family travel with its design award-winning Yezzstroller. For children 6 months to 40 lbs, the sleek Quinny Yezz weighs only 11 lbs and offers an ultra-compact, quick-fold. Most impressive, it has an adjustable carry strap that transforms the stroller into a hands-free backpack, ideal for boarding trains, planes, the subway, and more:
I've done a substantial number of baby gear reviews since becoming a parenting blogger, especially strollers, and while most umbrella strollers are portable, they aren't always this easy to fold and carry.
What I like most about the Yezz, is that when it's folded and I'm carrying it over my shoulder, the wheels are set back far enough that they don't rub against me. It also folds the most compact I've ever seen a stroller collapse so I don't have to worry about bumping into things when I'm carrying and/or storing it. I wish I had this stroller for our trip to Disney earlier this summer. It's really the perfect travel stroller.
The Yezz is very easy to put together and opens and closes much simpler than I expected. A simple release button on the handle bar opens the stroller, and a foot pedal stabilizes it and collapses it with ease:
The quality of the stroller is not sacrificed for weight and style either. The Yezz has a hammock seat, ergonomic push bar, repellent fabrics, a break and release, and a slim storage pocket. Interchangeable seats are available in six fun, bold colors, making the Yezz a bit of a head-turner too.
Overall, we are extremely happy with the Quinny Yezz. For where our family is in the stroller cycle, a lightweight travel stroller is pretty much all we need these days. One of the few drawbacks of the Yezz though, is that its seat doesn't recline at all. So you do have to sacrifice a little something for that awesome portability. The first time we used the Yezz, we were at a winery with some friends, and Lucas fell asleep. The seat is very upright and not particularly deep so it's something to consider if you have a stroller napper. The canopy also doesn't extend very far to block the sun, wind or noise.
The price tag is also a little hefty for a "second" / travel stroller. The Yezz will run you $279.99 but it's well worth it for avid travelers and city dwellers that don't want to sacrifice style for lightweight portability.
