The first time I put our oldest son in the umbrella stroller I had registered for, I was dismayed to watch his body sag, unsupported in the sling-like seat. It looked so incredibly uncomfortable, and I ended up rarely using the stroller as a result.
So, when Kolcraft sent me their new Cloud umbrella stroller, I was curious whether I could go from my giant double stroller to this lightweight stroller!
We’ve had many stroller systems, and lightweight strollers, but the Kolcraft Cloud is the first umbrella stroller we’ve tried since I retired the old one!
Like most umbrella strollers, the Cloud is slender and lightweight, with several features I’ve never seen on a smaller stroller of this type.
My personal favorite is the cup holder (read: COFFEE!) – Definitely a plus for me!
The extended canopy goes down much farther than I expected – I was quite pleased with the coverage it provides. Although it was easy for my toddler to pull on and play with, so I’ll have to teach him hands off that one!
Here’s an new one for me though – the seat pad? It rolls up! Now why would you want that, you ask? Well, as much as we might doubt it, hot weather IS just months away. The roll up seat pad on the Cloud stroller reveals a mesh back that allows airflow on hot days, so your little ones will not get hot and sweaty while you’re out and about! Kinda genius!
Front wheels have shock absorbers, so the stroller rolls smoothly for baby, unlike other umbrella strollers I’ve used before.
The Kolcraft Cloud stroller holds children up to 40 pounds yet itself only weighs 10 pounds itself! It’s easy to fold, yet comfortable for baby, and with a few perks too (a small storage compartment underneath is handy).
All the added features don’t add to the weight but they do add to the versatility that makes the Kolcraft Cloud Stroller a handy stroller to take traveling!
