Joie Pact Flex Signature

see 1 parent review

The Joie Pact Flex from the Signature collection is a higher version of the Pact. The Pact Flex is only available in an elegant Noir colorway featuring a glossy black chassis, a sleek brown leatherette handlebar, and reflective elements. The small wheels are equipped with a specialized flex comfort ride system and are offering a 30% smoother ride through the city. It can be folded compactly with just one hand. When folded, you can carry the stroller either in your hand, on the shoulder or in the carry bag which comes with the stroller. The Pact Flex comes with a surprisingly spacious and an easily accessible shopping basket. The non-reversible can be reclined sufficiently even for babies that can't sit up independently yet. You can place your newborn into a car seat with adapters as well.

if you own(ed) it, own it ;-)
parents say thx^^

It’s fantastic if you are usually traveling alone or living in an apartment with stairs etc. As the one handed fold and light weight makes it easy to fold whilst holding your baby!

However my experience with this pram has been mixed feelings. It's extremely convient, however my baby just hates it. It doesn't sit completely upright so that's something to bear in mind!

Your questions about the Joie Pact Flex Signature

1)

Hey Eli,

My Joie Pact Signature Flex doesn't seem to give my little one the complete upright seating!
She is slightly slanted.

I've pulled the tabs as much as possible to make it upright! Do you have any advice on what to do?

She's just turned one and hates being in her pram, I'm taking the sling with me and the stroller every time I go out. As meltdowns occur being in the pram! Help please :(!

Hello, Rhianna,

I get what you mean - the seat is quite slanted on the Joie Pact line (and, unfortunately, on most ultra-compact strollers. It is given by the fact that the pushchair is made with one goal in mind - to be the smallest possible, meaning compromises in most other areas since the stroller's priority was to be the smallest possible.

The bad news is, you won't help yourself much. There is this thing you can try - and that is, to put a belt or any kind of strap behind the backrest and secure it around the bars under it to hold it more upright. I am not sure though that the small frame of such a compact stroller will allow it. Some buggies allow to rip the strap belts behind a bit to make it possible to pull it more (but I wouldn't risk it, it is possible mostly with prams like Britax B-Agile...

Other than that, there's not much else to do - except for changing the stroller. I mean, if your daughter hates the position she's in (I mean, when too slanted, the child does "hang" on the harness and that is not comfortable, you wouldn't like it either). It may change, but it probably won't... so the only answer is to change the stroller. You will see how she reacts differently. There are not many upright ultra-compacts, I can only think of a Chicco Goody... I would also consider getting a lightweight mid-size stroller, they're usually much comfier for the kids (think something in the size of a Mutsy Nexo... They don't even need to be completely upright strollers, actually - just the different anatomy of the stroller's seat will make a change, you'll see.
