Mamas & Papas Sola 2 Review

Check out my review on the mamas & papas sola 2. It is one sweet ride!

If you’re looking for a lightweight stroller but want a something that’s a little more beefy than an umbrella, then the sola 2 may be a good fit for you. I’m a big fan of mamas & papas because they make really nice strollers but they are priced a little bit lower than the higher end brands. Even though they aren’t cheap, I think you get a lot of bang for your buck.

If you don’t want to watch the video, here is my cheat sheet:

THINGS I LOVED: 

  • Reversible seat so you can face your baby towards you or where you’re going
  • Reclines flat so you can use it from birth
  • Super-smooth ride with suspension front and back
  • It’s pretty light at 22lbs
  • Good storage underneath
  • Includes a rain cover
  • Amazing canopy coverage – these guys always do this really well
  • Adjustable handle height – I did have my tall (6’4”) brother try it out and he said it was a good height for him. He said the handle height is never an issue as much as the stride clearance (if it’s too short you kick it when you’re walking with long legs) but he said this one was really good.
  • Car seat compatible with Aton, CYBEX Aton Q, Maxi-Cosi Pebble, Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix , BeSafe iZi Go and Primo Viaggio infant carrier with the adaptors
  • Great all round stroller to get around town

 

 

THINGS TO CONSIDER:

  • If you are travelling on really rough surfaces or snow then you may want to opt for something with inflatable tires like an Indie 4 (it adds to the weight though)
  • At $399 it isn’t cheap. Even thought it’s a quality product that I think is worth the price, it may not fit everyone’s budget. Check out the Graco Literider or Verb if you’re looking for a similar style but less expensive.

If you want to compare it to others:

  1. Armadillo Flip: folds down faster and smaller but it’s about $100 more
  2. Armadillo: similar features and about $30 cheaper. Doesn’t have the forward facing option or the adjustable handle bar.
  3. UPPAbaby Cruz: Car seat compatible with Chicco and Maxi-Cosi. Comes with a bug net along with the rain shield. It’s about $130 more.

  • I’m looking for opinions, please!! We are considering the Armadillo Flip, UPPAbaby Cruz and Mamas and Paps Sola 2.
    They all seem to be about the same size when they collapse – we have a little house with no storage, so this is important.
    Which stroller rides the best/is easiest to push? I’d love a jogger, but we just don’t have the space, so I’m looking for the next best option for bumpy neighborhood sidewalks, roads, etc. Thanks!

    • I think I’d go for the Flip.

      All three have a fairly smooth ride — if you want anything smoother I would go for air filled tires – but the fold on the Flip is ridiculous. It is so compact and a real space saver. I really like the mamas&papas brand too – they make a really nice product.

      I hope that helps!
