Easywalker Jackey is a lightweight, ultra-compact stroller released in 2020. It will impress firstly with its super simple folding system - you only need to activate the fold with a button and a push on the handlebar, and the stroller will then fold by itself. The fold is compact enough to be accepted as a piece of carry-on luggage on a plane. Other advantages include a soft suspension system, a well-padded seat with a lay-flat option reclinable (and inclinable) one-handedly, even if equipped with a strap type of recline, and suitability from birth. You can pair the Jackey up with a car seat as well - with the help of Maxi-Cosi-type adapters. As the Miley, the new Jackey features the integrated attachment points on the handle- and bumper bar where you can attach a cup holder, a phone holder, a LED light, or a steering wheel for the child.

parents say thx^^
  • handling is light and easy
  • stylish colour and leatherette handles
  • wipe-clean handlebar for baby
  • no way to carry without putting into the travel bag!!
  • smaller basket than I expected for the weight capacity
  • hood gets very much in the way of the handle when not extended
  • no peekaboo window, only ventilation vents

I did soo much research on the best ultra-compact stroller to use through the summer for day trips in the lead-up to our flight & holiday in September. I settled after much ado on the Jackey. Initial impressions were good, but the more I got to know and test it the more I disliked it.

It is light and easy to handle, which was exactly what I was looking for. The green is a lovely sage/forest colour, not too easy to dirty I'd imagine, bonus. The wheels can be fixed, which although is not my preference I suppose is good to have the choice. The basket is much smaller than I'd expected for a 5kg weight capacity, I'm not sure you could fit 5kg worth of weight in it! The lifetime warranty is great and was a key consideration in my purchase. The fold mechanism though in my view is clunky. The fold down is easy enough but fold up is not one-handed, not particularly smooth. You have to hold the front wheel frame with one hand whilst stretching out the back with the other. Again, not ideal with a toddler running about your feet! I wanted it quick and easy. I wouldn't call the unfold of the Jackey either.

But worst, you'd expect (or is it just me?) that a foldable pram clearly designed to be lifted and carried would have an integrated strap/handle... but no. Apparently, the only way to do this is to pick up the stroller (to my point... how?) and zip it into the travel bag which does have a handle to carry. For a 'travel pram' this is not what I'd expect to do have to do in an airport or a bust station but worst, on a plane. Can you imagine trying to do that with a toddler in the other arm and a queue of people behind you? I don't think so.

So for me, the Jackey just won't cut it. I am returning it and will buy an alternative. Easywalker have prioritized style over substance in my view and so it's not fit for my purpose.

  • Suspension
  • Padded seatback, no need for any liners
  • Lies completely flat
  • Materials
  • 22kg weight capacity
  • One-hand folding that only needs you to push the button, it will fold by itself
  • Easy, good steering
  • I'd appreciate a longer hood
  • I would also want a bit larger wheels

A superb stroller, ideal for the city - the best form all I had, actually. We used it on dirt roads, even or grass, and all went well. Only ravel is problematic, but it was like that will all the strollers I owned. We'll see about winter and snow.

It can be steered with one hand only and folding it is exceptionally easy. It folds by itself, even the folding lock closes by itself. It's also lightweight, so I can lift it and carry it upstairs even with my child in my other arm. I appreciate the 22 kg weight limit + 5 kg in the basket. A taller toddler can fit inside, there's enough space under the hood.

The rain cover and the travel bag to carry it in are included.

The suspension is very well-made, it is soft so I can rock my baby a little, which some mummies will like, I believe. I would, however, want tiny bit larger wheels with such nice shock-absorbers.

I got the optional LED light, which is fantastic when it gets dark - we see where we go 🙂 The eco-leather pushbar is very nice to touch, my hands don't get sweaty. The child's belly bar is also covered by the same eco leather.

The hood can be extended, with 2 side mesh panes for ventilation. I found a problem here, as I wanted an extendable hood to avoid the sun getting in my little one's eyes. You cannot test this in the shop, however, so I found out while using it that the hood could/should be a bit longer to cover my child better. But I think this could be better when my daughter grows up a little more, being higher up and closer to the sunhood. I am also not a fan of the zipper on the hood, it can get hard to do when I have a nappy bag on the parent bar as the zipper it very close to the bars.

If the canopy would be a bit longer, this buggy would be perfect. In any case, I recommend it, for the city and for traveling, it is excellent. It takes only a bit of space folded in our trunk.

  • really low weight
  • nice folded package, and small
  • padding is very comfy
  • compatible with a 0+ capsule
  • slanted seat
  • hood couls provide more sun coverage (but it's extending quite fine)
  • small basket
  • the plastic covers of the accessory attachment points feel a bit cheap, wobbly, but it's a minor issue really

My kid is quite slanted in the seat, but the overall size and functionality are actually pleasant to use. We plane traveled with, there weren't any problems; the size fit the overhead compartment just so, though 😉

Just don’t buy the black one

3
  • compact auto fold
  • quality textiles
  • large canopy
  • lay flat seat
  • suspension
  • low weight
  • black color is dirty quickly and often
  • basket is not too large

The hood is large, the seat is nicely padded and the auto fold is incredibly easy. Just don’t buy the black one - the dirt from the ground is immediately visible in the hood fabric!!

Looks so much better in real life

4
  • Looks better IRL!
  • Lever-operated recline - I hate the strap reclines on most ultracompacts
  • Compactness
  • Basket - for such a small buggy
  • Accessories (I love the LED light, my DS feels like a policeman!)
  • Hood could be even longer (but this is usual on travel pushchairs)
  • Not completely upright seat back

It looks so much better in real life! A stylish travel buggy. Recommended.

  • Suspension
  • A soft liner on the backrest side - we never needed any additional liner
  • It can be fully reclined
  • Overall design; quality materials
  • Weight capacity of up to 22 kg
  • One-handed fold - just press a button, and it will fold by itself, even the lock clicks in
  • Good and easy maneuvering
  • The canopy could be larger since the sun still shines into my daughter's eyes even when the canopy's extended
  • Personally, I would love a bit bigger wheels

This stroller is great, ideal for the city. The best I owned, actually. We even tried forest roads, grass terrain - no problems. Ony gravel was problematic, but that was problematic with every stroller we had. We'll see how it fares in winter when there's some snow. I can push it one-handedly, and the fold is exceptionally easy - the stroller folds by itself, and even the lock goes on automatically. It's lightweight, so carrying it up a few stairs even with the child in it is not a problem anymore. I also appreciate the 22kg load capacity and 5kg basket capacity. You can easily fit a taller child in; there's enough space under the canopy.

The rain cover is included, and so is a carry bag. The manufacturer guarantees a 10-year warranty, which is awesome; I didn't know about it when purchasing it.

The suspension is very well made, and it can be felt as rocking when you push a bit harder on the handlebar. I believe some moms will be very glad about that. With this suspension, I would, however, put a little larger wheels on the Jackey.

I also bought the optional LED light attachable on the bumper bar. Great for bad light conditions - we know where we are going 🙂

The leather handlebar is very pleasant to hold - the hands don't get all sweaty. Also the bumper bar is covered with leather.

The canopy is extendable and equipped with 2 mesh windows on the sides. This is a minus, in my opinion - one of my needs was an extendable canopy, so my daughter is protected from direct sunlight. You cannot try this in the shop, so I found out while using the stroller that it could be even longer. I think it will sort itself out when my DD will grow some more and be taller. I would also reproach the placement of the zipper on the canopy - when you have a bag on the handle, it's very hard to access.

If the canopy were a little longer, this stroller would be absolutely perfect. In any case, I strongly recommend it for urban strolls and traveling. In the car, it takes almost no space.

Your questions about the Easywalker Jackey

1)

Hello Eli,

I'm really not sure yet which travel stroller I should buy.

I'm between the Jackey and the Ergobaby Metro Plus. We are 2 tall adults, and our LO is 9 months :) and we are always moving around. We live in Europe, so roads are not always the best.

1. Which one would you recommend and why?
2. Can you hang a diaper bag to the handle bar?

The Jackey do not have much reviews on the internet. When folded, you pick it up by the handle. So I really doubt the durability... But is has a bigger basket, and includes a carry bag, rain cover, and push bar. So big plus.

Thank you so much

HI, Maj,

If you need durability plus the comfort for a 9 months old, I think I would go with the Metro+. It has chunkier wheels, sturdier chassis, and a bit longer seat surface with really cool padding. The Jackey is not bad at all, just a little flimsier - not because of the picking it up by the belly bar, that is rather normal - but it has a bit better suspension though it is really quite slanted. You shouldn't hang any bags on the handle of either, as these small ultra-compacts are not made for that, and they might tip over, the more so with a smaller child.

Hello! How the Mini Easywalker Snap stroller can be carried when folded?

Hello, there,

The Jackey and the same-in-design Mini Buggy SNAP can be carried by the bumper bar when folded. Otherwise, you'd need to get it in a buggy transport bag of sorts to carry it differently.

Hi. I’m torn between this Easywalker Jackey and the Leclerc Magic plus for my 3 month old. These are my requirements:

- I need something compact yet durable that will last through infancy and toddlerhood for a few kids.
- I need something that can be used daily and cope with grass and cobblestones occasionally.
- I need something that will provide max comfort for the child whether in infancy or toddlerhood.

Does the Magic fold lie flat for use from newborn?

I know the Jackey seat is not very upright. Is it too slanted to be comfortable for the child?

Which of these two do you recommend based on the requirements listed above? Or is there another option you recommend that’s similar?

Hey, Moe,

The good thing to know here is that these are ultracompact strollers (read more here). They are not made for multiple kids and superb durability, they are made for occasional use on holidays, during shopping, easy walks, etc. To expect them to be heavy duty for a few kids is not realistic, to be honest.

Grass and cobblestones, the same story. For that, you need larger wheels and stronger, a bit bulkier chassis. The frame with multiple points of folding will get loose and rattly quick when daily on rattly terrain.

Maximum comfort for the child means a more upright seat, which no ultracompact has, a lot of space, which no ultracompact has, and a large hood, which almost no ultracompact has. This is important to know, really, these strollers are not comfort strollers. The more comfy here is the Jackey, as it is more padded, but other than than, this is no comfort for a toddler for multiple hours, none of these two. And the leclerc is also not upright, unfortunately. Both buggies lie flat enough, not 180 degress, but close to 170, which is ok for smaller babies.

My own advice is something a bit bugger. From the Baby Jogger City Mini Zip/Baby Jogger City Mini2 to an Oyster Zero, TFK Dot 2, Gesslein S4, ABC Design Avus, these lightweight mid-size strollers will be comfy for the child, not the travel, holiday strollers made with only one thing in mind - fold small enough to fit the overhead compartment.

I know I was harsh, but I am sorry, you want your baby to be in comfort, but go for the strollers that are only comfortable to store in your car boot, not roomy and functional enough for daily use. Try to reconsider your priorities, as for a 3mo, is not just occasional, I would get a more full-featured stroller.

P.S. And which is better from these two? I'd go for Jackey, because of the padding. But soon, the Miley2 will be out, and that will be a tiny bit more spacious.

Hi there,

Do you know how upright the seat can go? In degrees if possible? I've seen a few reviews and they suggest when the toddler is sitting upright, he/she can still be a bit slanted and not properly upright. My little girl likes to sit fully upright in her current pram so we're worried she might not like being a bit reclined.

Thanks :)

Hi, Tom,

I am so sorry but I won't make you happy - the Jackey is actually pretty slanted (as almost all ultra-compacts are). I never measured the degree properly, but it can be somewhere between 110 and 120 angle from the sitting part. If your girl doesn't like a not-upright position, this will not be a stroller for her. No ultracompact will, for that matter.

The closest you can get, perhaps, would be the Joolz Aer - which still isn't completely upright.

Hi! Can the Jackey be used together with the Easyboard? https://easywalker.com/en/universal-accessory/easyboard

Or any other board for bigger siblings? Thanks

Heya, Valentina!

Well, it can and it can't (or shouldn't). I mean, yes, you can attach the Easyboard (or any universal sibling ride) on the frame, it will fit.

On the other hand, this is a ultracompact stroller made primarily for occasional use, shops, and travel - so, small, weaker than a large pram, and, again, small in every aspect from wheels to joint mechanisms... And as such, it is not mad eas durable. Putting so much strain as a sibling board with a 15-20+ kg toddler in the back may cause its chassis to loosen up (or different damage to it). Before doing so, think of this, as it is quite important (not even talking about the discomfort caused by very very short steps you'll have to make plus a much more difficult push).

So, yes, you can attach it. But it's not an optimal thing to do to this particular stroller. If you want to know more, read this guide about sibling boards and their pros, cons, and uses.

Hi Eli,

I’ve got a few questions regarding the stroller. I hope you can help me!

It mentions it has a peekaboo window but I cannot see it, could you please put up a picture where it’s clearly visible? Is there a pocket/mesh at the back of the stroller?

The fact that the wheels are EVA coated, makes them less durable?

Last question: I’m looking for a compact stroller (that can go on a plane as hand luggage) which can carry up to 22 kg (from birth), which has a peekaboo window and ideally a pocket, can be opened and closed one handed, with extendable sun visor/hood, suspensions, ideally a carry bag… I’ve read so many reviews and now I think this one is my best option. (Even though I’m considering the Ergobaby Metro+).

Could you tell me if this is my best choice or if there’s anything else?
Thank you,
Erika

Hi, Erika,

There are a few viewing windows in the hood, none of which is, however, a full-featured one, so to speak. After extending the canopy, you'll get two ventilation windows on the top sides which also serve as peekaboo windows. There is also the option of rear ventilation on the reclined rear part when the child is napping, so through there (after opening the flap in the back), air can also circulate through and you can also see the child if you bend down.

The EVA foam-covered wheels are the most lightweight but also the most basic ones. They are certainly less durable than rubber wheels but for such an ultracompact buggy, their low weight and maneuverability suit well enough. Read more about wheels and their different types (+comparison) in this stroller wheels article.

To your last question, you picked reasonably well, this is a nice, quality travel stroller that folds down by itself, so great for one-hand folding. The 22 kg weight capacity here is, however, a bit overrated, as the seat is not as large as to accommodate a 22 kg, approx. 5 years old child. I have one such at home and he doesn't fit. It is pretty much true for all of these compact travel buggies - however, if you absolutely need something for that bug of a toddler, go for a taller seatback and more space up to the top of the canopy (the Ergobaby Metro+ is a bot longer, seat surface-wise, but I would consider a Joolz Aer more in terms of seatback height). Then there's also the Chicco Goody (full Chicco Goody/Goody+ review here which is spacious enough, but without the peek-a-boo window you needed.

Still, even the Jackey will be OK if not asking it to last for a 5yo. For a 1-to-3 years old, I can recommend this one just fine. If a larger toddler is on your mind and shoulders, however, do consider taller backrests or mid-size strollers instead - I mean, you can always take it on board as the baby's free luggage. Last thing - if your stroller priority is the small size with the larger toddler in mind and you're only considering the Jackey vs. the Metro, I personally would go with the Metro, I think. The Metro is also a bit smaller after folding. However, for ride comfort, the Jackey might be a little better off.

Hi,

How does the suspension work, especially on cobblestones and bumpy roads, since it has small wheels? Is it noisy? Is the seat too much slanted even if its most upright position?

Hello, Chaity!

I'll start with the seat - it is slanted a bit, yes. It is not completely upright. It's not horrible but if you're looking for an ultracompact stroller that is upright, this won't be it. Actually, that is very rare with ultra-compacts overall.

Moving on to the wheels and the stroller suspension, well, again, it's a travel stroller. There is actually quite a nice suspension on these, but as you say, they are small. That means even with the best suspension possible, you will hear a bit of noise on cobblestones and such (actually heavy - cobblestones hurt every stroller, even a Cybex Priam) terrain conditions. It won't be horrible but it won't be absolutely comfortable either.

That's an honest answer - you cannot expect more of the smallest stroller type there is. Not too noisy, but not too quiet either. The Jackey is actually better off in this department than many cheaper small strollers. And even the Babyzen Yoyo does get noisy on cobblestones, and that is one expensive stroller...

Hello Eli,

Do you know if the Jackey fits in the overhead compartment of a plane? And the Miley?

Hi, Jason,

The cabin luggage size varies quite a lot from airline to airline, so you will always need to check with yours to make 100% sure. In general, however, the Easywalker Jackey's folded size of 56 cm x 47 cm x 26 (Jackey's a bit wider as this model is compatible with a car seat) and the Easywalker Miley's size of
58.5 cm x 44.5 cm x 27.5 (narrower but a bit higher) fit many airplane overhead compartments required folded size.

So, yes, these are travel-friendly, ultracompact strollers, and even quite good ultracompacts, quality wise, and they should fit - but they're not the smallest out there, and as with all cabin luggage sizes, do check before boarding, alright?

Hi!

Is there a possibility that an older child could push the button and make the Jackey fold when little sis/bro sits on the Jackey?

Hey there!

Actually, no, it can't. The stroller is made so that it folds forward - that means if a child is sitting in the pushchair, it's practically impossible to fold it. For the auto fold to work, you need to kind of "throw" the handlebar forward which, again, with a child sitting inside is not possible.

Also, the folding button consists of two buttons actually, one is the main middle button and one is hidden underneath - it is in the form of a sliding mechanism. It is rather difficult to smaller children to activate both at the same time.

So, to sum it up, it should not be possible for a child to fold the stroller down by itself with another child inside. That said, it is of course always advisable never to leave the child unattended in the stroller.

Thank you very much. Do you have a picture with all the details of the XS Buggy, please? To understand the difference with the Jackey stroller.

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

Yes, of course, I am attaching the Easywalker Jackey versus the Easywalker Buggy XS.

Do understand the difference is also in the automatic fold that Jackey does have and the older Buggy XS doesn't. In other functions, they are quite similar, even if maybe different, design-wise.
