Chicco Echo Lightweight Stroller Review:- Pros
Users almost unanimously agree that the Chicco Echo stroller is one of the best lightweight strollers on the market, especially at this price point. For under $100 it is not possible to find a better lightweight stroller and one user has even declared the Echo, “A premium version of an umbrella stroller.”
The Echo is super easy to open and close and it has an umbrella stroller style fold that makes it ultra-compact. While the Chicco Echo is not as lightweight as other umbrella strollers (weighing in at 17 lbs), users say it is lightweight enough to carry up and down stairs and, thanks to the included carry handle, it is a great stroller for when traveling or using public transportation.
The swivel front wheels on the Echo maneuver effortlessly and users say the stroller handles bumpy sidewalks well. The stroller’s compact design allows it to glide easily between clothing racks and through crowded spaces.
Reviewers love that the Echo is sturdy and durable, adjectives rarely used to describe lightweight strollers. Many reviewers say the stroller won’t tip over when they hang their purse or diaper bag from the handle bars, even when the stroller is empty.
This stability is normally only found on heavy and bulky full sized strollers. (However, Chicco does not recommend hanging bags from the handle bars, nor does it guarantee the balance of the stroller if one were to do so.)
The stroller comes in many amazing colors, has two positions for the seat leg length, and the back of the canopy unzips to let air in on hot days. The canopy can also be adjusted up and down to accommodate a growing child. The stroller seat provides ample room for larger children, is very comfortable, and the seat fabric is high quality.
But, what really makes the Chicco Echo stroller stand out in the lightweight, umbrella stroller crowd is its four position reclining stroller seat and its tall handle bars that make stroller pushing comfortable for parents over six feet tall (but the handles are not adjustable).
Users are so happy that there is “finally an umbrella stroller for tall parents.” The Echo also provides a decent size stroller basket that while small is more than what is found on most compact or umbrella strollers and it has an included cup holder.
Chicco Echo Lightweight Stroller Review:- Cons
There are almost no cons for the Chicco Echo stroller. The only complaint users so far have for the Echo is that the cup holder falls of the stroller when empty and many users have lost the cup holder while traveling.
One user also points out that the stroller wheels are made of plastic, but no other user has complained about this fact and most users actually comment that the stroller handles very well.
Overall, the Chicco Echo lightweight stroller is a welcomed newcomer to the lightweight stroller market. It is a sturdy and durable compact stroller that includes many stroller features often omitted from lightweight and umbrella strollers.
