    I have the Maclaren Quest Railroad Stroller & I absolutely love it! We needed a light weight stroller for traveling/car & this is perfect! It can be used from birth but I did have to buy a head hanger for extra support! It has an extendable hood, reclines so baby is laying down, good size basket & folds nice & compact! It’s durable and came back it’s rain over too! Great value for money!!!

    If you are looking to move on from a travel system or peak, the MacLaren Quest is a good shout. It is very lightweight and has an umbrella style fold, so you can have it unfolded in seconds flat and be ready to go, similarly collapsing it is very quick and can be done one handed. Once folded it has a catch which prevents it from unfolding again and a convenient little handle on the side for carrying the folded buggy.

    Like most strollers, it has two separate handles. Whilst this is good for hanging shopping bags on it does mean you can’t push it one handed. The foam handles are also liable to splitting easily. Watch out for fully loading your stroller by the handles of your child is going to be getting out too, it will become top heavy and fall over backwards. The basket underneath is good for a few items but is only made from a flimsy mesh and isn’t the most secure, I’ve had things fall out without me noticing.

    The hood is nice, coming down quite low and can be unzipped further to come even lower on some versions. The seat can be fully reclined to lie flat and the leg rest can be easily adjusted to put your little ones feet up if they wish!

    As with most strollers it isn’t made for rough terrain and can be heavy to push as the wheels are small. The brake is a foot brake and isn’t the strongest so a persistent child can still move it if they are determined enough even with the brake on.

    The harness is very stiff to undo, so if you have any sort of mobility problem in your hands or thumbs, you might want to consider a different stroller. On the flip side it is impossible for a child to undo the clasp so if you’ve got a runner on your hands, this is the one for you!

    Overall it’s a nice little stroller, fits easily in the car and quick to unfold and collapse. Can be heavy to push and don’t overload the handles or it will topple.

    Maclaren buggies are built to last. Our Quest is looking brilliant and ready for the new baby even though we used it for a long time with our toddler! It has survived 3 holidays to Europe too. All the fabric has come off and washed so well in the machine!

    It is so compact when folded so doesn't take up much car boot space. It's easy to collapse too. We've been on the bus many times with it and it is easy to get on and off and doesn't take up lots of room on the bus.

    I have a child with Down Syndrome so need something that is built to last as he is likely to be in a pushchair for a longer than average time, I have used this pushchair for over a year now and absolutely love it, it's easy to fold, I love how the rain cover clips on the pushchair using the studs and no faffing with straps, I have pushed my nearly 4 year old around in this with absolutely no issues at all, my 1 and only criticism would be the basket, when fully reclined you can't really acsess the basket but other than that it is absolutely fantastic, very easy to push and navigate around all obsticles, easy to pull back for mounting kerbs
    Highly reccomend

    Had the quest, used it twice and sold it, it was a in pulse buy, if a small buggy is what you are looking for it's great, have a fantastic sized sun canopy, but I found it too rickety over payments, I like bigger wheels and this had some of the smallest I have seen, it's a light weight buggy and nice quality, slightly over prices for what it is, it does come with a raincover though so that's a plus.

    With having over 40 prams and strollers between 3 of my children the Quest is easily one of the best strollers I have used. I brought it second hand off of a good friend who used it for 4 years. The wheels were still in great condition and the steering was perfect. The seat unit lays flat so is great for nap time when out and about and the handle are a great height for both short and tall people. The major downfall is the straps and how hard they are to adjust whether your child is in it or not.

    i love this buggy its easy to use,collapse and manoeuvrer. its sturdy with the added bonus of still being light. it has a good size shopping basket underneath and sturdy hood. buggy fully reclines with ease so fab for smaller babys . it fits well in the boot of a car and cleans up well when things are spilt on it. only negative is the harness clips can be hard to release when you need to get child out but also means little one cant get them self out so this could be a good thing.

    We bought this as our travel buggy. We have used it for 11 months so far. It has traveled well - it has been on 9 flights to date. It has been used on a number of terrains. It is nice & manoverable. The seat goes very flat so it worked well for our 1 month old. So far it has not shown any signs of wear.
    You can steer it with one hand reasonably easily. It is very light. We really like the hood with the option to unzip it & fold it down further - it great protection from both sun & rain. Useful that the rain cover is included & works very well.
    The basket underneath is small & can be hard to get things into & out of. We also find that the pram can sometimes be stiff to collapse down. Once it is collapsed it has a useful carry handle & clip to stop it accidentally opening up in transit.
    I would recommend it as a great travel buggy.

    I have been using Maclaren Quests for over 10 years. It is an ideal holiday buggy, we have used it abroad several times. It folds small enough to fit in any boot. The seat is spacious enough for bigger toddlers. The only fault I have is that the new models now have a wire in the rain cover for support, which makes it difficult to fold and takes up more space in the basket. In my opinion there was nothing wrong with the old design. I like that the covers are easily removable for washing as the seat can get quite grubby with older babies having snacks etc.

    My daughter is walking but needed a pushchair that would be lightweight, easy to fold and easy to move. This pushchair does just that. I took it around my local country park and went over the different path including when I look wrong turn into a farmers field. It is easy to get on and off transport.

    I have bought this stroller in 2016 and it’s still like new. It’s more expensive that the rest of the strollers but definitely worth the price as I have had it for 2 years and it’s like new.

    I bought Maclaren Quest when my little one was 7 months old, as I didn't want to take a big Bugaboo cameleon on London transport. Being small, reclining to almost flat this fitted the bill. I used it now for more than 3 years . And I am happy with it. It is always in the boot of the car. It doesn't take much space, I keep it near the entry door at porch. And we travelled a lot with it. It is quite a comfy one for a child to seat as there are several recline positions. She slept really well in it, reclined flat. The raincover is good to keep the cold off too, due to its shape and how it is attached to the buggy. I folded and carried it down the stairs in tube a lot, as it is lightweight.
    My only criticism is about the wheels. They are quite small, which means you have to tilt it up to pavements and it can be a little harder to push after a big pram system . But I wanted smth small and you get what you ask for. I see that the wheels start to wear off after 3.5 years of usage. Which is not bad I suppose.

    Love this! I've been using this buggy for two and a half years. First and only buggy I have used with my son. It is very lightweight and live that the top of the buggy is waterproof. The wheels have an easy move to them.

    We bought this chair for travel, but my baby loves it so we use it day to day as well! It’s very light weight, comfortable, folds small, lies flat with an extendable hood. Has great shade/protection in sun. Only down side is that you can’t access the small shopping basket when seat reclined.

    This is a pretty sturdy stroller, and withstands a good amount of daily use. It is one of the better strollers I have bought. The only downside is that it's not the easiest to collapse, but this doesn't really put me off purchasing this stroller.

    The only think i could fault would be the strap foot rest has snapped on mine which is a pain. I ended up having to pull it off completely as it was dragging on the floor. Apart from that i couldn't fault it.

    It saves space in the car and at home. Great for travelling too. We love taking it on the flight journeys and it is easy to use at the airports. It provides a comfortable space for the child to sit and sleep in. My daughter used it from 8 months old and my son I will use it soon. It is still in a good condition. It would be great to have more space underneath the seat. We had to buy a sleep muff for it to be used in the cold weather.

    I bought this on sale and have used it more than the travel system. Baby is comfortable and we can go for long walks without worry. I’ve rolled it through mud and tricky terrain and it’s coped really well. So easy to get in and out of the car with baby in arms.

    We had this buggy given to us as a gift. I have a bigger prawn with car seat that I use regularly but found this big and bulky when we go away. The MacLaren is much better for this. It’s lighter easier to steer and folds much smaller. My son is only 10 weeks and I find it flat enough go for him but like the snugness of his bigger pram for more regular use at the moment. I think that gradually as he gets bigger we will use this one more as it is just that bit easier to manage and still feels quite solid.
