Valco Baby Zee vs. Latitude EX, which is better?

Jen • 20 Apr 2023

I had a Silver Cross Coast stroller that got cracked on the chassis from a car driving into it. Silver cross says they can sell me a new chassis for $399. I don't want to do that when I can get a new stroller for less than that. At this point I have a double stroller from Baby Jogger, the City Classic which I use most of the time since I now have 2 children. I'd still like to have a decent single carriage though for when I go out with only one of them. I need it to fully recline so they can sleep in it if necessary.

I found online 2 models from Valco which have been discontinued and are selling for very affordable prices. One is the [valco-baby-zee|Valco Zee]] and the other is the Valco Baby Latitude EX Stroller, Silk Black. Are you familiar with these? Can you recommend one over the other? Or a different stroller that reclines fully that is $150 or under?

Hey, Jen,

Both are older models, so perhaps watch out whether the free plastics are not kind of weakened by time. In any case out of the two, I would probably prefer the Zee - it is much more comfortable to push thanks to the chassis shape, and it is simple yet practical. The Latitude is not bad itself, just if I were choosing, I would probably take the Zee.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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