Top Full Size Travel System Stroller Picks for 2017

Full Sized Stroller Plus Matching Car Seat

This guide will help you choose the best full size travel system stroller for your needs.

Not long ago, a full size travel system would be a great big stroller and car seat. The stroller has all the bells and whistles - features galore! But man, would it be heavy and bulky. That was the biggest complaint from moms everywhere. They love all the conveniences of the stroller, except when it came to folding it up and hefting it into the car trunk. 

These days, a full size travel system stroller generally weighs well under 25 pounds, the exception being many all-terrain strollers and joggers. Gone are the days of every product being big, bulky and frilly with all the same design. You will see a variety of colors, shapes and functionality with the selection below.




Best Full Size Travel System Stroller Guide 2017


Chicco Bravo

$350 - $362 depending on color

Newer to the Chicco line, the Bravo has a removable seat so when your baby is newborn, you simply click your Chicco Keyfit car seat right onto the frame, making a stylish, lightweight travel system - or connect the car seat on top of the toddler seat (as shown in photo). Once your child is big enough to look out into the world, the toddler seat holds up to 50 pounds for years of use. And the stroller is not that heavy, either - only 23 pounds.

The one-handed, self-standing fold is a huge plus when you're holding your baby, and a generous basket is accessible from both the front and rear of the stroller. Parents, you get a height-adjustable handle and a console with two deep cup holders. The seat reclines in multiple positions, and all-wheel suspension smooths out the ride. An extending sun canopy has a mesh peek-a-boo window.

Average reviews are 4 & 5 out of 5 stars for the convenient self-standing one-handed fold and for the removable seat. Consumer Reports gives the Bravo stroller an 82% and Best Buy rating, awarding an excellent mark for Ease of Use and very good marks for Safety and Maneuverability.

The KeyFit  car seat  has high ratings on Consumer Reports with an overall 86% and is also a Best Buy. It has excellent marks for Ease of Use and Fitting in your car using the Belt or LATCH system.
