The Silver Cross Jet Stroller: compact, light, and perfect for travel

Finding the perfect travel stroller takes some shopping around. A light weight and compact fold are important, but what else is a must for you and your family? Do you plan on taking a newborn in the stroller, taking it on a plane, or attaching your infant car seat? If that was a “yes” across the board, you should take a peek at the all-new Silver Cross Jet Stroller.

The Silver Cross Jet joins the ranks of compact strollers like the Babyzen Yoyo+ and UPPAbaby Minu. The Minu just recently came on the scene as well as a response to the growing trend of compact strollers. Parents don’t want to lug a heavy stroller in and out of their trunk for a quick, five-minute trip to the store, and we don’t blame them.

Then comes the travel stroller dilemma. You want to bring a stroller that you love on your trip, but you’re probably hesitant about checking it as luggage and sending it off with the airline. You’re worried about possible damage to your quality stroller – and rightfully so.

You’ll be happy to know that the Silver Cross Jet is certified to fit in the overhead compartment of virtually all airlines. Its fold is so compact that you could even store it underneath your seat. It weighs just 13 pounds and includes a convenient luggage sleeve cover. You’re then able to fold the Jet, place it inside the sleeve, and roll it around by using the (INCLUDED!) belly bar as a luggage handle. They really thought of it all.

If you’re strolling with your newborn in the Silver Cross Jet, you’ve got two options. The Jet is infant car seat compatible with these adapters, allowing you to click your Nuna PipaCybex Aton Q, or other Maxi Cosi infant car seat right into its frame. But it also features a lie-flat recline, allowing you to safely place your tiny newborn in the Jet’s seat. A deep recline will be a godsend when your tired toddler just wants a nap.

Silver Cross has been making strollers for nearly 150 years, and in that time they’ve really learned how to craft a quality product. You might already know them for their Wave stroller, which has been one of our favorites for years. We’re excited to welcome another model from Silver Cross and another compact stroller to meet the needs of families on the go.
