With this stroller, it really depends on what you're going to use it for. I wanted a lightweight stroller for city sidewalks, that folds easily with the sports part, the sports part swivels, the backrest and footrest are adjustable, and it fits in the trunk when folded. And these requirements were met by this stroller. It traveled with us in the car to visits, shopping, doctors 🙂

I was warned about the hard suspension when I bought it, and there were times when I wish it had better suspension. I was pleased to see that the price included a leg cover, a rain cover and a changing bag. Later on, I appreciated that pretty much all the fabric parts were machine washable.

Very good design in my opinion - sturdy frame; good quality, strong fabric that doesn't let the wind blow in or doesn't get immediately soaked, so baby is protected from bad weather. We also used it as a car seat, and I recommend it to everyone. No moving and waking up the baby - it was comfy, we managed even longer waits at the doctor's or shopping without any problems. As such a small minus is maybe the size of the bassinet. Even though it's labeled as a Navetta XL, it's not that long. We didn't mind though, because my kids were tired of lying in the bassinet, so we switched to the seat unit at about 5 months.

It has both backrest and footrest adjustment. It reverses to face both sides; plus a large enough canopy. The biggest plus for us was that it folds up with the frame.

It really featured a hard kind of suspension, so it's definitely not suitable for rough terrain. We managed trails and grass, but on broken trails and gravel, I found it lacked better cushioning. On the plus side, it's lightweight, has a roomy basket, folds easily, and is a pretty good size when folded. What really disappointed and annoyed me, however, was that almost right from the start the chassis seemed to loosen up (I think it's called having a will in the joints???) - that is, I had the feeling that the stroller had been ridden for a long time, and not that it was new.
