The Skinny

The Inglesina Quid is a nicer lightweight stroller with impressive features for comfort. This stroller has an adjustable leg rest, deeper than average recline, and a larger canopy for protection from the elements. It is easy to use and performed well compared to the competition in our tests for maneuverability. Unfortunately, this stroller is somewhat pricey for a likely second stroller, and the fold requires two hands and doesn't automatically lock in place. However, those minor hiccups aside, this stroller is a better offering from Inglesina. While it missed winning an award by the skin of its teeth, we like this option, and it could be a good choice for your family depending on your goals.

Our Analysis and Test Results

Weight and Folded Size


The Quid is shockingly small and lightweight for a product that feels relatively robust for an umbrella product.


The Quid weighs 13.5 lbs, about .5 lbs more than the manufacturer claims. This weight is in the lower third of the products. This stroller is 5,166 cubic inches when folded, making it one of the smallest we've tested. It also folds in thirds, making it much shorter than a traditional umbrella product.

Ease of Use


In a group of harder-to-use products, the Quid stands out as above average for ease of use.

Fold and Unfold


The Quid has a two-handed fold, but the unfold only requires one. The process is smooth and works well without getting caught or creating a struggle. It does not have a lock, but the fold is helped in place by tension, and this seems to work. Unfolding just requires holding the handlebar and giving it a shake.

Brakes


The brakes on the Quid are single action. They are very easy to set and release with a large center-placed pedal. Instead of lifting the pedal to release, you press on one side to set and the other side to release, making them friendly and pain-free for sandaled or bare feet. There is minimal play in the wheels when the brake is set.

Storage


The bin on the Qid is canvas, not mesh, like most of the competition. It is relatively small in comparison and only holds up to 6.6 lbs. We were able to shove a medium-sized diaper bag inside, but a metal crossbar prevents stretching the opening to make items fit.

Sunshade


The sunshade is large compared to the competition, with a UPF protection factor of 50+. The canopy has a zippered extension that allows the shade to come low enough to block the sun from the passenger's face, increasing the potential for napping and overall comfort. It doesn't have the best shape and sort of curves instead of extending outward to cover the passenger's knees. It has a mesh peek-a-boo window for ventilation and spying, and the cover closes with Velcro (we proper magnets for quiet peeking. Medium/large mesh peekaboo window.

Harness


The 5-point harness is lighted padded and is a rethread style. The padding is nice, but it would be better if the seams were away from the neck. The straps double back on themselves, making them harder to adjust than the competition, but it prevents little ones from messing with the straps and keeps the straps from loosening on their own. The crotch strap is well-padded and adjustable, which is not common in this group. The buckle is stiff, but it springs apart when you release it so it can be done one-handed.

Seat


The seat on the Quid is adequately padded, but nothing spectacular. It reclines further than much of the competition, and the leg rest is adjustable. The recline adjustment requires only one hand to lower, but you will need two hands to pull the straps to bring it back up. Both are easier if the passenger is leaning forward or not in the seat.

Car Seat Compatibility


This stroller is not compatible with any infant car seat, but traditional lightweight strollers rarely are.



Ease of Setup


It took us 2-5 minutes to assemble the Quid despite a manual that only offers pictures. It was about average in difficulty to put together as the manual lacked captions for the photos. The assembly consists of snapping on the wheels and the bumper bar.

Maneuverability


The Quid managed a higher than average result during testing in a group where none of the products really impressed with maneuverability. This stroller has narrow, foam-filled plastic wheels that are single on each leg. The front can be locked if necessary, and it has front-end suspension.

During testing, it was relatively easy to push and turn on flat and hard surfaces. It does have a wider wheelbase, so you do need to plan your turns, and it doesn't turn sharply, but it also didn't require backing up like some of the more challenging competition. The smaller wheels don't roll through tall grass well as those with bigger wheels, and they hung up on gravel and small bumps in the road.

Quality


The Quid offers higher quality materials and design than much of the lightweight competition. This stroller has front suspension and better wheels than the average despite being foam-filled plastic and somewhat narrow. The frame is better than some, but it has some exposed rivets, and ours came scratched, indicating, in our opinion, that it might scratch easily over time.

The Quid's fabric is a rougher-feeling polyester canvas with average padding underneath. It wraps all the way up the sides of the seat and lays nicely on the frame. The harness straps have padding, and the fabric is soft. However, the padding seams are close to the neck, which seems like a design flaw as they'd be less irritating facing toward the shoulders. The canopy fabric is decent compared to the competition, but it is still more wrinkled than it needs to be when open. The bumper bar is wrapped in faux leather, giving it a higher-end appearance and perhaps extending its lifespan. The overall fit and finish are slightly above average for this type of gear.
