Peg Perego Aria OH

This stroller has a very compact/ tight fold, and is AMAZING to fold and unfold. Can definitely do it with one hand and it can stand on its own when folded. Very light and easy to get in and out of the car. It is great for travel.

It reclines in multiple positions (low enough for a sleeping baby), but maybe not COMPLETELY flat.

It only weighs 10lbs!! Feels like an umbrella stroller, but so many more features.

While I have used it outside on sidewalks and streets, it's definitely better indoors. Definitely NOT an "off-roading" type of stroller:) Can function on flat paths though.

I can push it and steer with one hand if I have to, but the push/steering is definitely not its strong suit. I use this stroller more than any of my expensive stroller b/c of it's ease, weight, and versatility, but it definitely does not compare in steering capabilities to my Teutonia or BOB duallie.

It is very user friendly and as mentioned before, SO easy to fold and unfold. The recline is done with straps, but is very easy to do, and I found to be much easier than my Red Castle Whizz (although a tad tricky with just one hand). It has the Peg "floating harness" which took a little getting used to, but now I really like it.

I love the huge basket and the child snack tray. The canopy is actually really good too.  I have the "Completo" version which came with a cute footmuff.

I really like that it came with the hook-on drink holder, but wish it had one built-in (when installed it can stick out and get in the way, and it's easy to lose--it also doesn't hold a very large drink).

Would absolutely recommend it and buy it again. Hands-down the stroller I've gotten the most use out of and have hung onto the longest. Not a "luxury" stroller and b/c of it's weight may feel a little cheap  (plastic frame) when you're used to more heavy duty strollers, but perfect for lugging around on airplanes, getting in and out of the car, shopping, etc. 


PROS

  • Compact/ lightweight
  • One-hand fold/ unfold
  • Big shopping basket
  • Snack tray
  • Footmuff option
  • Easy to clean fabric
  • Huge canopy
  • Drink holder option

CONS

  • Average push/ steering, but NOT excellent
  • Frame/ brake may not feel particularly sturdy (compared to aluminum)
  • Small/ somewhat awkward removable drink holder
  • No adjustable footrest 
  • Not good on rough terrain
Completo version

OK, now you are making me want to keep mine! I have the cobalt blue on black frame, with matching diaper bag. I have it up for sale so I can get the Vela, which is the new version of the Aria.

I think I'll be getting this in time for our vacation to Disney. DS needs the snack tray and also a good canopy. Hopefully it won't be too hot in there! (the stroller, not Disney)

Not worth the $$
My mother got me the Peg Aria and while I love it for the mall, that is pretty much it. I hate how rickety it is and dislike that is is all plastic-looking.  Whenever I use it outdoors it gets stuck everywhere.  I would not recommend this stroller to anyone.  Spend your $$ on something else.      PROS:      light   steers well indoors   seat fully reclines   large basket   easy fold   …
