OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

If you're traveling with a baby or a toddler, don't get bogged down with a bulky stroller on top of your luggage. The Contours Bitsy Compact Fold Stroller will get you and baby where you need to be comfortably and conveniently. It only weighs 13.5 pounds, you can fold it with one hand, carry it by the padded carry handle, and when folded, it fits in many airplane overhead bins. What's also cool is that the stroller stands on its own when folded.

When it's open, the Bitsy gives you all the features you need to make being on the go easier. There's an underseat storage basket for toting around essentials. The extendable canopy is UPF 50+ to offer sun protection for baby, and there is a mesh peek-a-boo window so you can keep an eye on your kid. The padded seat has an adjustable recline (almost 140 degrees) and an adjustable leg rest. The five-point safety harness and shoulder straps are also adjustable to accommodate your growing child. And parents will really like the one-step brake in the back that the company is calling "sandal-friendly". You won't scuff up your shoes or hurt your toes with this one.

This stroller also makes travel easier thanks to its adapter-free infant car seat compatibility. And it's compatible with more than 30 infant car seat models. (An infant car seat is not included.)

The stroller comes in three colors: midnight, Bermuda teal, and granite gray.

Why Is It Useful?

This is a very easy stroller to maneuver, and it's all-wheel suspension provides a smooth ride. It's billed as a travel stroller, and it definitely has amazing features that make it very travel-friendly. But we don't see why you couldn't also use this as your everyday stroller. It's infant car seat compatible, it's adjustable for your growing baby, and it's easy to fold and carry, even if you're just folding it into your trunk and taking it with you to the store.

Who It’s For

This stroller can be used with children up to 40 pounds. It is compatible with some infant car seats, so you can potentially use this stroller from ages birth and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Adult assembly is required. The instructions are easy to follow, however, don't ignore the additional instruction sheet that shows you how to assemble the leg rest.

This is infant car seat compatible with more than 30 infant car seat models from manufacturers such as Britax, Chicco, Cybex, Evenflo, Graco, Maxi-Cosi, and more. Visit the Contours Baby website for more information on compatible car seats.

Folded dimensions are 20.5 inches wide by nine inches diameter by 23.5 inches tall. Check with your airline carrier before travel to check overhead compartment space limitations.

A travel bag to cover the stroller is available and sold separately.
