Bugaboo Butterfly: Is the mesh protective, and can I keep it open?

Is the mesh viewing window protective? Can I keep it open?

Hi, Shane,

It depends on what you need protecting from. If you mean UV protection, though, the mesh is not completely UV protective, but unless the sun is shining fully on your baby's head, the answer is YES, you can keep it open for sure. Pretty much all moms open the canopies during the summer. Just watch out so that your little one is not left in the direct sunlight, and/or let him/her wear a hat as well (I recommend that on a sunny day anyhow) ;-)

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
