Mountain Buggy Nano V2 Review
Mountain Buggy Nano V2 Review
Well-known for off-road pushchairs, Mountain Buggy was started when a father needed an all-terrain pushchair and decided to craft his own. The company started targeting urban parents with the Mountain Buggy Nano. As you can read in our review of the first model, the Nano is a super lightweight, compact travel stroller that can fit into tiny spaces.
The Nano V2 is Mountain Buggy’s newest model and it proves to be their smallest stroller yet, fitting comfortably in an overhead luggage compartment or the size of a regular travel bag. So, if you are a regular on public transport or struggle with space, the Mountain Buggy Nano V2 is the perfect travel companion.
Once expanded the Mountain Buggy Nano v2 looks just like a full sized pushchair with plenty of storage space for all your travel accessories. This also makes it perfect for all children from newborn up to 20kg (your average 4 year old).
The seat measures at 22 inches wide allowing full lie flat adaptability with the use of a soft shell Cocoon Carrycot. The seat belt is easily adjusted from the back to prevent any wrigglers! It is well padded with a mesh back in recline making it perfect for long journeys with the family. The mesh back is ideal for maintaining comfort but allowing plenty of ventilation and air flow in the summer. With the addition of a fabric extension overlay this can be easily covered in winter to accommodate the colder climate. Equally its extendable hood means you can protect your little traveller from all the harsh elements.
The V2 is very similar to the first Nano in that the front wheels are lockable and able to swivel, so locking them for longer walks makes the journey a lot smoother. It has rear suspension and it was easy to push and manoeuvre.
It has an easy brake system with a one-step pedal located at the rear. It’s colour coded so is easy to tell whether you have it on or off, and it’s also great because for people that don’t usually push the buggy can’t get mixed up.
The Mountain Buggy Nano V2 has an easy 2 step folding system similar to the older model, only they have improved the turn on the wheels allowing for more compact storage. By depressing two buttons on either side of the frame, the buggy simply folds at two joints to make a smaller fit.
Unlike many other brands it comes with its own travel strap and bag making it less likely to snag in tight spaces. To unfold it is just as simple. If you hold the handle and flick the buggy out it unfolds in an instant.
A perfect accompaniment to the Nano is the Mountain Buggy Nano All Weather Cover Set. This includes a sun mesh and a raincover so is perfect for any weather type. A Mountain Buggy Freerider is also great for taking another child with you on your travels. The Connector 2 attaches a freerider to the Nano, making it perfect for toddlers to hop on or off.
For colder weather, a Mountain Buggy Sleeping Bag acts like a sleeping bag, plus it’s washable. If it’s a seat liner that your child would prefer, we love the Lambswool and Micro-Suede Liner. It’s made from super soft material and would make the seat ever so comfy. For a general liner, the Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan & Nano Seat Liner provides extra comfort and a choice of colour for your little one.
