Stroller Reviews: Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System

Choosing one baby gear item for your baby is difficult enough as it is, but two? If you get a stroller, then you will have a hard time finding a car seat that would match and the same goes the other way around. What if you can get them both for a convenient price? This is what the Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System can offer you: matching stroller and car seat, with a modern design, quality material, and a lot of benefits for you.

Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System

Features of the Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System

It is a 45-pound stroller measuring 27.5 x 19.8 x 31 inches and having a weight capacity varying from 4 to 50 pounds. It has a great design and it comes in varied color combinations, perfect if you want your baby to travel in style: adventure, Midori, foxy, Fuego, hazelwood, miro, and Pegaso. The cargo basket, the canopy and the height-adjustable handlebar make it highly convenient and will convince you to give it a try, as well as the fact that it makes every journey as comfortable as possible for you and your baby as well!

Some of its Main Advantages

  • The “Memory Recline” seat – we all hate doing the same thing over and over again, and that is actually what you have to do when you fold and unfold a stroller – trying to place the seat in the stroller, in the same position that suits your and your baby’s needs, every single time! That can be frustrating – with an ordinary stroller, but not with this one! The “Memory Recline” seat means that it remembers the last position you placed it in and it will fit itself accordingly. One problem is less for you to deal with!
  • Extremely comfortable for the baby – the car seat interior of Chicco Keyfit 30 is lined with energy-absorbing foam that will protect your baby at impact, and you can also opt for the newborn infant insert, which is extra padded for more comfort for babies from 4 pounds and up to 11 pounds.
  • For additional safety, you have the 5-point harness and, for protection against the sun or other weather factors, the stroller comes with a reversible laminated canopy.
  • Extremely comfortable for the parent – this Chicco Travel System is very easy for you to handle, and in fact, that is what you need! You have enough problems on your mind every day and the last thing you want to worry about is how your baby’s stroller folds or fits! The simple one-hand fold is very convenient and so is the ergonomically designed carry handle. If you are taller, thanks to the height adjustment system, you will not have to lean down and strain your back and arms.
  • Moreover, whereas you usually need a lot of patience, practice and hard work to install the car seat in the stroller, or take it out and attach it in your car, everything will be so much easier for you if you get the Chicco Cortina Travel System, all because of the “single-pull” latch adjustment!
  • Chicco Cortina Travel System has all the simple advantages that matter so much: sturdy- check; great wheels for a smooth ride – check; lots and lots of space for your bags, for diapers and all the other stuff you need to carry around with you when going out with the little one – check; adjustable leg rest, wheel suspension – check; cup holders both for you and your baby – check; double orientation (forward-facing and rear-facing if you want to keep a close eye on your baby during the journey) – check; 2 smarts, “memory keeping” reclining positions – check. Maybe some of these things will seem unnecessary for you, but they will suddenly become extremely important if you do not have them! Fortunately, with this travel system, you will find everything you need, when you need it the most.

And… Disadvantages

It is just a little bit heavier than other models, especially the car seat, because Chicco Keyfit is padded for your baby’s protection, but a couple more pounds do not matter too much when you want the best for your children! Also, the material can get spotted quite easily if you do not pay attention, but it is also very easy to clean! You can just cold wash it, no soap or detergent required!

Sounds Great, But What Do Other Parents Say About It?

Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System

Whether they are more interested in flexibility and comfort or the baby’s protection, all the people who have tried the travel system could not be happier with it!

“I love that the car seat is easy to install and easy to adjust for both seat belt and LATCH.” (Andrea Jackson)

“After researching and testing various strollers, this model was my absolute choice. I and my husband are both quite tall, but Cortina is extremely comfortable walking around with even for us. Also, I was amazed at how extremely light the carrier/car seat was, and folding it was a piece of cake compared to other strollers we tested. Sincerely, when it comes to ease of use, I don’t think there is a better choice than this Cortina system. I read somewhere that the carrier will not fit in standard shopping carts. This is not a problem for me, as we can simply take the stroller in with us and place what we want to buy in the storage compartment. All in all, I am quite impressed with this model and consider it a great investment.” (Jacqueline Strobber)

Buy the Chicco Travel System and you will love every single moment when you are going out with your child!
