About - Mamas and Papas Sola

The Mamas and Papas Sola is part of the stroller test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, traditional stroller models like the Sola are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Ease of use:
Ease of use is based primarily on ease of using and adjusting the safety harness, folding and unfolding, adjusting backrest, lifting and carrying, engaging wheel brakes and car seat removal and installation (only for compatible strollers).

Maneuverability:
Maneuverability is assessed by trained staffers on how well the strollers maneuvered S-turns through cones, narrow sections, grass, dirt trails, uphill, downhill and curbs while walking.

Safety:
Safety is assessed by testing for compliance with the most current version of the standard, ASTM F833-13, and stability and usage tests designed by Consumers Union.

Comment:
Main stroller bought for walks and daily use. Works with maxi-cosi infant car seat with adapters really well to go from car to stroller. Front and rear facing for both car seat and infant seat. Needed additional sunshade for walks during the day living in southern CA when using the carseat. Wheels sustained daily walks for months. Folds extremely easily, don't think it's that bulky compared to most strollers. Very sturdy, liked that it had a metal frame as opposed to others which are all plastic.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Been using since my daughter was 5 months and is now almost 9 months. She loves it, she is so comfortable and so happy to see me as we walk. I also get a lot of compliments on it.<br />The one really big negative is that it is BULKY you need a car with a big trunk, even when folded it is big.<br />I also recommend the cover for it, makes it softer and warmer.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
