Graco Evo XT Pushchair - Review



I've been part of the Generation Graco team for the past few months and as my contract with them draws to a close I bring to you my third and final review. Before I get onto that though here are my first and second reviews of the Graco Milestone Car Seat and Graco Modes 3 Lite Trio in case you missed them the first time around. 


As previously mentioned the final Graco product I was sent to review was the Evo XT Pushchair and although Noah doesn't use pushchairs like this anymore I was invited to share my initial impressions of the model.


The Evo XT was very easy to set up once out the box and straight away both my partner and I were impressed. We noted how perfect it would have been for us when Noah was a little younger as we love to explore and the all terrain rubber tyres would have been a godsend for us as a family. Just steering the pushchair around the house I could tell how easy it would glide over both smooth and rough surfaces as the tyres are so large on both the front and the back of the pushchair. The front wheels can also be locked which is of course down to preference as I don't tend to use that option myself. The pushchair also has all round suspension to ensure a comfortable ride for your little one even when exploring off road.



Another great feature of the Graco Evo XT is that the seat can be used both rear and parent facing, this is always something I always look for in a pushchair or travel system. It's great to have both options so you can switch it around to your child's age or preference. The seat unit is comfortable, has a five point harness and is easy to recline with three different settings. You can adjust this using a button feature rather than a toggle which is another aspect I always prefer in a pushchair, so another thumbs up there.

Not only does the Evo XT have good tyres and a great seating unit but it also has a large hood to protect your child from the elements and has a really generous sized shopping basket too. The pushchair also comes with a rain cover and cosy toes which I think is brilliant as sometimes you need to buy these separate at an additional cost.



Features:

Suitable from birth to a maximum weight of 15kg (approx 3 years)
Reversible forward and rearward facing seat
Three position recline for comfortable snoozing
Includes raincover and luxury footmuff

Front and rear mudguards to keep you pushchair clean

The Graco Evo XT can be used from birth (with the additional purchase of the Graco Evo XT carrycot) through to three years old. It's priced at £399.99 which I would have been more than happy to pay as it has everything that I look for in a pushchair and more.  

What features do you look for in a pushchair? 

- I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are my own.
