The Combi Savvy is an ultra lightweight stroller (11.7 pounds) that is compatible with the Combi Shuttle 33 travel system to create a car seat/stroller combo that accommodates both infants and toddlers. Owners praise the Savvy for its light weight and ease of folding and say it's particularly good for travel. However, users also complain of uncomfortably low handles, a small basket, poor build quality, no cupholder and a general lack of features. Professional reviews are also mixed, with compliments for its light weight, but complaints about maneuverability and durability. A better budget choice may be a well-reviewed stroller from Graco or Kolcraft.

Review: Combi Savvy Stroller, Buyer Reviews
Editors at BabyGaga.com test 17 umbrella strollers (the Savvy is often categorized as an umbrella stroller because of its compact design) in 11 performance areas and assign letter grades to each. Although this is an older review and refers to a Combi Savvy with a different color combination, it is the same basic stroller. It receives a C-plus overall, earning low marks for flimsy design and low positioning of the handles, making it uncomfortable for the driver. Positive marks are given for the Combi's ease of cleaning, easy folding and light weight.
