Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Folds and unfolds in two quick motions
The quick fold and unfold mechanism is handy for parents who are always in a hurry. To fold, just press the lever on the back frame and fold the stroller inwards. To unfold, unfasten the auto-lock and pull the stroller upwards.
Pro Has a breathable, mesh fabric your child can sit on during warm weather
During warm days, you can remove the padded seat and have your child sit on the mesh fabric underneath. This is also why the Inglesina is a favorite among families traveling to warm and humid countries. The mesh fabric has holes where air can pass through. Your child will feel cool and comfortable without the padded cushion that usually traps heat.
Pro Lightweight and made for travel
The Inglesina Net meets every parent’s main requirement when looking for umbrella strollers: being lightweight. It only weighs 11.2 lbs, making it perfect for travel.
Pro Allows you to put a large diaper bag on the basket under the seat
You can easily place and take off things from storage without them getting snagged on the bottom of the seat. The seat does not block the basket's opening because it doesn't recline that low. The basket can hold up to 25 lbs.
Pro Has an easy, one-hand, one-step fold/unfold
This feature is best for parents who are always in a rush.
At the back of the stroller frame is a lever that you can step on, push the stroller inwards and an automatic lock will snap it in place. To unfold, remove the snap that locks it in place, pull the handle in an upwards motion and a lock will snap in place to let you know that it is locked open.
Pro Stands on its own even when folded
When folded, the Inglesina Net stands on its back wheels instead of its handles, preventing dirt from getting into the handles and canopy.
Pro Stroller comes with an extra padded seat you can remove during warm weather
The padded seat is removable and most parents take it off during warm days. Without this seat, the stroller still has a mesh fabric your child can sit on.
Pro Can seat average-sized toddlers
This stroller has a spacious headroom for big and tall children to sit comfortably on. The distance from the canopy's top to the seat base measures 26 inches.
Con Only has 2 recline positions
While most parents do not think of this as a problem, it is still good to point out that this stroller can only recline to 2 positions: the original seating position, and 6 inches more to the back when you unzip the back part of the seat. This angle is just enough to help toddlers nap.
Con Cannot accommodate small infants because of its limited recline angle
Despite Inglesina's claims that you can seat a 3-month-old in this umbrella stroller, you actually shouldn't. Babies that young don't have enough spinal support yet and forcing them to sit upright might be harmful. It's best to wait until they can sit unsupported on their own before you seat them in the Inglesina Net.
Con The sun canopy is too short to provide complete cover
Although the sun canopy might be rated SPF 50, it only has 3 short panels which can only provide shade up to your child's upper torso and not their legs.
