Are you looking for a travel stroller that has all the necessary features, but doesn’t cost a fortune?

If yes, the Kolcraft Cloud Plus is an excellent choice because you get all the function for just a fraction of the money you would pay for some other travel stroller.

The stroller is rugged and compact, weighing only 12 pounds. The folding mechanism is easy to operate with one hand, the seat has multiple recline positions, the wheels have suspension, the storage basket offers plenty of space, and these are just the features, to begin with. Read on to find out all of the details.

Features

  • Canopy

The sun canopy on the kolcraft cloud plus lightweight stroller is large enough to keep your child shielded from dangerous sun rays. The peekaboo window on the top makes it easy to keep an eye on your baby, but it also keeps it fresh. The canopy has three panels, so you can retract it if needed. If your child is tall, just adjust the height of the canopy and gain an extra 3 inches for increased comfort.

  • Roomy Seat

The seat on this stroller is safe and roomy at the same time. It is very comfortable, and the multi-recline option allows you to adjust the position of the seat to your baby’s needs. All you have to do to recline the seat to any position is to loosen or tighten the belt. The lowest position is not entirely flat, so it’s not suitable for a newborn.

  • 5-point harness

The 5-point harness is a standard feature for most strollers these days. The harness on the kolcraft cloud plus lightweight stroller is not padded, but that isn’t a big deal because it’s comfortable enough as it is. You have to control the buckle from both sides to open it up, so your child probably won’t be able to do it alone.

  • Storage basket

The storage basket can only hold 10 pounds of weight, which is enough for a medium-sized diaper bag. The basket is easy to access from the back. If you don’t have enough space in the basket for all your necessities, you can use the tray, and parent console found below the handles. We’ll get to that in a moment.

  • Wheels

The wheels are made out of plastic, so they can’t go flat. They are small and not so easy to maneuver. The front wheels have some suspension, but your baby will probably feel every bump if you decide on going off road. Try not to push this stroller over grass or playground mush, because you will have a hard time doing it.

The front wheels are swivel, which makes it great for going around the city quickly, but it won’t help you go over uneven terrain.

  • Brakes

The brakes on this stroller are located right next to the rear wheels. You need to press both of them to lock the wheels in place, and that’s not easy to do when wearing flip-flops. The location of the brakes can also damage your shoes, so be careful when braking.

  • Easy to fold mechanism

The folding mechanism used on this stroller works very well. You only need to press on the red lever in the middle of the handlebar to fold it in seconds. The auto-lock keeps the stroller together when folded, so you can easily store it in tight areas. Once folded, the dimensions of the stroller come down to 34H x 18W x 12D.

  • Convenient extra features

The kolcraft cloud plus lightweight stroller has no storage pocket on the back of the seat. Instead, the parent tray and cup holders are there to hold small items like your keys, phone, or water bottle. That works great because everything is right in front of you where you see it. The tray and cup holders are nice and deep, so your stuff doesn’t fall out when you make a tight turn.

The baby also has some extra features at its disposal. The cup holder is large and ideal for holding bottles, cups, and other refreshments, and the snack tray is huge. You can also use it as a small table for your child to play on. That keeps him occupied so that you can focus on your errands.

What’s wrong with the product?

– Doesn’t work well on uneven terrain

The wheels are really small, and the front swivel wheels don’t lock in place. You shouldn’t push the stroller over uneven terrain.

– Plastic wheels

The wheels are made of plastic. They can get damaged or broken, so you’ll have to find replacements.

– The cover can’t be removed for machine washing

You have to wash the cover with a damp cloth. We miss the machine-wash option.

Conclusion

The kolcraft cloud plus lightweight stroller is a cheap alternative travel stroller. The price is meager, so you can’t expect it to be top-notch. However, it does offer most features all parents need when running around town or traveling.

The canopy is large and effective, and the stroller is easy to fold and store. It’s lightweight, so you can easily carry it around if needed. It also offers decent storage space and a cup holder and tray for both- the parent and the child. You will be able to get around town quickly, but you should consider buying something more expensive and with better features if you plan on taking long trips with your baby. The bottom line is – you get all of the function for just a fraction of the price! If that’s what you’re looking for – look no further.
