The Skinny

The Graco Jetsetter is a lightweight stroller that works with Graco Click Connect infant car seats. This stroller comes with adapters that click onto the frame of the stroller and work without any straps. The connection is simple, but we did install it multiple times thinking it was connected when it wasn't. The stroller is light and compact, making it easy to carry and stow almost anywhere. Unfortunately, the Jetsetter isn't easy to use and is hard to push and turn. So despite being easy to fold and the ease of car seat attachment, it isn't the best option for most parents who may want more features or better quality that is easier to maneuver.

Our Analysis and Test Results

Russell Gray and Robert Cone started the Graco company in 1942, Philadelphia creating car parts. When Gray later decided to leave the company, Cone took Graco in a new direction, making baby gear with the help of an engineer. The first Graco baby gear was an infant swing. The unique swing (inspired by an outdoor glider) was a hit with parents putting Graco on the map as a go-to for baby gear. Now, Graco is a leading producer of baby gear worldwide.

Ease of Attaching Car Seat


The Jetsetter comes with car seat adapters making it compatible with Graco Click Connect infant car seats. We tested ours with the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35.

The Adapters for the Jetsetter attach to the frame on each side...

The adapters (above left) click onto the frame sides (above right), and you need to align the carrier up with the connectors precisely, or it won't attach. The attachment is click-in only, but even when you hear the double click of the back and front, the installation may not be complete. We had several occurrences of hearing the click but still being able to pull the carrier off the stroller with a firm tug. This problem means you need to remember to push firmly and double-check connections every time. Despite this, it is easy to install and remove.

Weight and Folded Size


The Jetsetter is light and easy to carry thanks to a compact fold. It weighs 13.7 lbs and measures only 4,246 when folded. These measurements make it the smallest folded package in the review.

While the front wheels on this Graco are an improvement over other Graco options, they still don't work that well over any surface that isn't entirely flat.

Maneuverability


This stroller is hard to push and to turn. The Jetsetter has small plastic wheels, so despite being single wheels per leg instead of dual front wheels we don't like, it still struggles to move smoothly. The frame of the Jetsetter is rickety, and this causes significant flex in the frame, making it difficult to push and turn, which increases the more weight you put inside.

Ease of Use


The Jetsetter's smaller size and fewer features hurt its ease of use score.

Fold and Unfold


The Jetsetter is easy and quick to fold with one hand and a few steps. This stroller self-stand, auto-locks, and has a carry handle and storage bag. These features make it suitable for travel and quick storing in small spaces.

Brakes


The brake pedal is small and right next to the wheel but still easy to use. The brakes are single action and easy to use even with open-toed shoes or bare feet.

Storage


The storage bin on the Jetsetter is on the smaller side, but it holds the average amount of weight for the group with a max capacity of 10 lbs. Access is limited to the back and is only average. We fit a large diaper bag inside, but there isn't room for anything else, so you won't be taking supplies and buying groceries with this ride.

Sunshade


The upside is the shade can stay connected to the stroller when you attach your car seat. You can even open it and use it in conjunction with the carrier canopy. However, it is not a large canopy, and coverage is limited.

Ease of Setup


The Jetsetter is very easy to put together, taking only 5 minutes. The manual is average, but the assembly is intuitive and straightforward, so whatever it lacks you can potentially do without.

Quality


This Graco earns an average score for quality thanks to the competition that includes frame strollers which generally are lower in quality. However, it can't compete with the better full-size or jogging strollers. The Jetsetter is a little bit frumpy with foam-filled plastic wheels and loose connections that cause flexing. The fabric doesn't feel durable, and we worry about longevity despite it being somewhat nicer than most Graco strollers.
