‘Loaded with lots of extras, without lots of weight, this buggy makes one less piece of luggage to fuss over – wherever your travels take you.’
We tested out the Joie Pact Lite on our recent trip to the airport, here’s how we got on:
The biggest pro about this stroller is its size/weight when folded up! At only 5.5kg I could carry it on one shoulder at the same time as carrying Georgia. It also takes up hardly any space in the boot.
The Travel bag is really handy and keeps the stroller clean. It’s also a great place to keep the rain cover together with the stroller in the event of rain.
The fold mechanism is simple and can easily be done one handed. There is a button on the handle bar that you press to get it all started. Other strollers like this we’ve reviewed require two hands to collapse, so this is a big win!
It was very easy to push even with Georgia it it. She seemed comfortable and loved having the bumper bar to hang toys off. I felt she was secure because of the 5 point harness.
The Pact Lite comes in a choice of 4 colours and are not only perfect for travelling, they’re great on days out too. I used this instead of my every day buggy the other day. It was a lot quicker and easier to get in and out of the car. It was great in the supermarket as it has a large basket too. The canopy isnt huge so could be a slight issue on a sunny day. I wouldn’t recommend this stroller for ‘off-roading’ and it wasn’t great on cobbled streets.
I will be taking the Pact Lite on our next trip into London, these strollers are perfect when travelling on public transport where space is not in abundance.
The only slight negative I found was that the back rest, even at its highest level, is very reclined. Georgia is very inquisitive and kept pulling herself up on the bumper bar to see out in front of her.
We have also tested the Pact Lite on a friend’s baby who is younger (16 weeks). This stroller is suitable from birth due to the lie flat reclining seat so perhaps it’s better for smaller babies as she seemed very comfortable in it.
Available to buy from John Lewis at £140.00 this is a mid-range buggy. As standard, you receive the carry bag and rain cover too.
