This Maclaren Stroller measures 39.4” x 18.5” x 42.1” when unfolded and 41.3” x 9.4” x 11” when folded. Given that this stroller is ultra lightweight and has a small footprint, it is to not only easy to carry around when you’re running errands, but it can also conveniently be used for travel. Given its price tag, the Maclaren Quest stroller offers some extra features which we’ll explore in details in the next section.
Features and Pros
Aluminum Frame. The frame of the Maclaren Quest Stroller is made of aluminum which is not only lightweight (the stroller only weighs 12.3 pounds!), but also robust.
Decently Sized Canopy Coverage. The canopy coverage for this stroller is decent and is rated for UPF+50 which blocks harmful UV rays. What’s nice is that this canopy/hood is also waterproof!
Rain Cover Included. A rain cover is also included with the Maclaren Quest stroller to provide your child with maximum protection when it rains.
Four Seat Positions. The seat for this Maclaren stroller can be adjusted to four different recline positions. Its flat position is ideal for newborns. The one-hand recline mechanism for this stroller makes it easy to adjust the different seat positions.
Ultra-Padded Seats. One thing I noticed with this Maclaren stroller is that it is a very comfortable stroller. I certainly noticed the extra padding that was in this stroller.
Removable, Machine Washable Seats. What’s really nice about this stroller is that it has a removable, machine washable seat, making it super easy to clean and care for this stroller. What this means is that you don’t have to worry too much about any spills with this stroller!
5-Point Harness. The 5-point harness that comes equipped with this stroller is easy to use. At the same time, because it requires pushing the front and back of the buckle simultaneously to unlock, most kids won’t figure out how to break free.
Simple Folding Mechanism. One feature that stood out for me in this Maclaren stroller was the fact that it can be folded and unfolded easily. It also has an automatic lock which keeps the stroller in place when folded. Just watch the video below for a quick demonstration.
Adjustable Leg Rest. The adjustable leg rest on for this stroller allows your child to be fully comfortable in the stroller. Once fully extended, your child will be able to stretch out their legs. What I also noticed is that the leg rest stays at the same position even after you fold and unfold the stroller. Another feature that makes it a tad more convenient for the parent.
Newborn Safety System. One of the many different features that I liked about this stroller is its newborn safety system. Since this stroller can be used for newborns, its design comes with a protective head and foot barrier that safely cocoons newborn babies.
Carry Handle and Shoulder Strap. In addition to its lightweight design, Maclaren incorporated two features that make this stroller even more portable. The first is a carry handle and the second is a shoulder strap; both of which allow for easy transport.
Rear Wheel Suspension. The Maclaren Quest stroller comes with rear wheel suspension which absorbs any shock experienced on an uneven surface. This feature ensures that the stroller rides smoothly.
Large Storage Space. The stroller comes equipped with an oversized shopping basket which is 1,037 cubic inches big. Definitely big enough to store essential items for everyday use.
The Maclaren Quest stroller is definitely a high-end umbrella stroller that comes with some nice features. That said, there is one thing which I thought Maclaren could have done better in.
Canopy Coverage is Only Decent. If you’re looking for an oversized canopy coverage for maximum sun protection, you’ll be disappointed with what the Maclaren Quest stroller has to offer. I think having a larger canopy coverage would be nice to have in a premium stroller like this one.
Other Noteworthy Points
The Maclaren Quest stroller comes in several different color options. Some of these options are shown below:
For the price of this Maclaren stroller, you are getting lots of premium features, which I believe will be worth it in the long run, especially if you plan to use this stroller for years to come.
Many parents like the Maclaren Quest stroller for its lightweight and compact style. This stroller comes with some nice features that I really like and it is definitely a high end product in terms of umbrella strollers. The first feature that stands out for me in this Maclaren stroller is its ultra-padded seat. The seat for this stroller will certainly keep your child extremely comfortable whenever you’re out and about with the stroller. The second feature I really liked is its one handed folding mechanism which is super convenient (you can watch the video above to see why). In short, I think the Maclaren Quest stroller is a top rated umbrella stroller and will certainly provide your child the maximum comfort he or she deserves.CLICK HERE to check out the Maclaren Quest stroller!
