All the details - Chicco Urban travel system review

Buying a travel system can be a boggling experience for new or expectant parents.  There are so many around and with no experience of what you will need, it can be really hard to choose.

The Chicco Urban travel system is a great all-rounder, with details that show the design and practicalities have really been thought about.  I saw this travel system and its new features at the recent Chicco 2015 collection launch event.  I hadn't realised before that Urban easily converts to a travel system with the addition of a Auto-Fix Gr0+ car seat.

Urban is versatile, lightweight and ideal for city and town life with a little one.  I love love love the fact that the seat converts to a cot with no extra bulky attachment needed.  When in seat mode it can be forward or parent facing, and has different reclining positions.  This makes it so versatile and compact.

I also love the wheels which are no-puncture plastic/rubber (like a classic stroller).  Not only do they make this system really portable, but they're quiet and perfect for on or off-road.  No inner tubes repairs needed - ever.

The shopping basket is a great size too, and would easily hold a change bag, plus all the other extras you need an buy when out and about.  This is a lovely detail - so many shopping baskets are an unrealistic size.

New for 2015 are fabulous colour packs and a brilliant hand muff that can be used by parent or baby.  This shows Chicco has really thought about the extras that will make parents love this travel system.

The colours packs all feature a padded seat cover which the harness neatly fits around a pram 'apron' to keep baby ultra snuggly, and harness safety pads.  Not forgetting that brilliant hand muff.

The summer pack comes in neutral colours 'Summer Nature' (sage green) and 'Summer Sahara' (light beige), and I love the vibrant winter colour packs 'Winter Night' (electric blue) and 'Winter Sunset' (electric pink) pictured in this post.

The travel system has an RRP of £399, and the colour pack £59.99.  Well worth it for such a versatile and great looking travel system.  Don't you think?
