    I think for your purposes, a Quest might be a better option. The zapp is super cool looking, but it does have a little more involved fold and it has no recline at all for napping. The zapp also has no basket. The quest has the recline and leg rest, I believe the quest is also a bit lighter, although it does have a larger fold it is very slim.

    I have a Mac Triumph and love it. Don't know the difference between it and the Quest but the brand in general is really good.

    The Triumph has a basket and a sun shade. It was about $140 I think.

    thanks for the input (and thanks to getting this in the right thread!)

    I think the recline will be the deciding factor - DS passes out in the stroller before I even reach the sidewalk, and I'd hate to see his head bobbing about!

    The differences between the quest and triumph is that the quest has the extendable legrest and the triumph does not. Also The quest has more recline settings and a slightly cushier and deeper seat. Albeebaby.com has a 2005 Quest right now for $140 shipped, no tax. Great deal!

    Hello!

    I am in the market for a lightweight stroller. After reading reviews here and elsewhere I think I have narrowed my choices down to:

    Inglesina Swift
    Maclaren Volo
    Peg Perego Aria (Don't want to spend hundreds -- found a 2005 online on sale for $119! That is really good, no?)
    Silver Cross Micro

    The one requirement that I have that I have not been able to find too much info on is height. My husband and are are both relatively tall people. Are there any of the above that you would/would NOT recommend for tall people?

    Thanks!

    KGif I have a Maclaren Volo and love it. I use now more than I use my Zooper. The handles are tall, so I think you shouldnt have a problem there. I am finding that I just don't need all the extra features I used to, and its so light weight and so easy to push.

    From all you umbrella stroller experts with toddlers, in particular:

    How important is a snack tray on the stroller? Do I really need my umbrella stroller to have one? I have a Bugaboo now and am thinking what the next one will be.

    THANKS.

    Kgif, for height I'd recommend a Maclaren. However, does your baby sleep in the stroller at all? Or do you have a younger baby? The volo has no recline whatsoever. It is a very bare-bones stroller in terms of features. I have had mine for almost a year and have only really been using it a lot recently with my 17 month-old. If you need to be able to recline, then I'd go up to a triumph, or even a quest if your baby is on the younger side.

    Bloomwood, I don't think a tray is terribly necessary if you are going for a lightweight quick-trip type of stroller. If you get a Maclaren you can get an add-on tray from baby trend that snaps on and off.

    Mag: Do you know the product name for the baby trend tray? I just looked on their site and didn't see anything, unless it's one of the replacement parts. I don't know that it's vital. We've survived without one for a few months, but I wanted to check it out. TIA! Hope you and the little peanut are doing well!

    psusna:
    Yes, it's a replacement part. You want to call them and tell them you have a trendsport lite (the black one) and that you need a new snack tray. All the info is on their website in terms of the phone number. It cost about $13 shipped to get mine. It's a black tray that has a food area and cupholder and it snaps onto the mac frame. I know it works on my volo and I am pretty sure it also works on the triumph and quest but you can go to BRU and take the tray off the trensport lite they have there and stick it onto the mac you have/are interested in to be sure.
    I've only used mine a few times because at this point, my DD can manage fine with her straw cup and a ziploc or snack trap in the stroller and doesn't need the tray. If we are going to the zoo or whatever where I need a full-featured stroller with storage, I take my peg anyhow, and that one has a tray already.
