Combi Review

I received a sample from Combi for the sole purpose of this review

We received the Combi shuttle car seat a couple months ago. That seat has been amazing for us. It's been working really well. But with 3 kids and 2 of them 2 and under has been hard when we leave the house. I really was missing having a travel system now with my youngest. So I was happy when Combi agreed to let me review the Cabria stroller so I could have a travel system again.
The stroller came separate from the wheels, canopy and child tray.
Set up was a breeze. Just pop on the wheels, canopy and child tray (not on yet here)
Stroller goes up to 55 pounds and the harness has a lot of adjustments to help it fit your child perfectly.
Child tray has 2 cup holders, great for snacks or a cup.
Basket below is a decent size
The canopy is wonderful. It opens like this with a window flap for viewing....
 The is a more accurate color!
Or you unbuckle that little buckle there...
and you get a double canopy. It has full coverage and also has a 2nd viewing window.

Large double opened canopy! 
 Another more accurate picture of the color
It also has these locks on the canopy so you're not constantly adjusting it! SUCH a nice feature!
The windows are mesh which allow for good air flow. Especially when baby is in the car seat. 
It has a couple of little storage areas in the back as well as a cup holder and that strap? Yeah that's a handle to carry it on your shoulder when it's folded up!! Great for traveling!
To adjust the seat you just push these little buttons and slide it up and down the fabric pull.
Seat all the way down
You pop these on the arm rests of the stroller
and then the car seat just pops right into place
Put the handle down and the canopy's up and you get pretty full coverage.
It is so easy to fold up. You pick up these latches on both sides of the handle. Flip the stroller onto it's back wheels. Push it forward and then thrust it back and it folds up automatically. You then just grab the handle and turn it inwards and it folds up the rest of the way and locks. It's so compact and folding only takes a few seconds.

This stroller has been awesome. Although my youngest doesn't like to sit/lay/sleep anywhere but me, we're working on it. But even though I still wear him in the wrap most places we go, it's still nice to have this with me. For 1, it's somewhere to hold the diaper bag and extra shopping we do and for 2. I can buckle him into his car seat before we leave a store and then just toss him into the car so he doesn't get as cold. It's been bitter here in MI and I love having this stroller with me for that reason alone.

The stroller is lightweight, super easy to fold/unfold and works perfectly for what we need it for. I have had no complaints at all. I LOVE the carrying strap too!

Price: A very affordable $137.03 down from $159.99 here on Amazon

Overall: *****
*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Combi in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Combi for allowing me to review this product

Thanks for this review - I have a son who is married, and I think it is fair to say that they would like to have a child sometime soon - I'm already starting to look around and see what kinds of "equipment" are out there, and at what price - it has been over 20 years since I needed any of it for my own kids, and obviously things have changed lots in that time!

I've been looking into getting a second lighter weight stroller. Thanks for the review!
