Basic, but sufficient, safety features. The Chicco Ct0.6/Capri is equipped with a padded five-point safety harness that provides a measure of extra security for babies and prevents sleeping toddlers from slumping over. It has individual brakes, one on each back wheel, that are operated with a foot lever.
Easy to fold, unfold and lift. Owners and experts agree that the Chicco Ct0.6/Capri's low 11-pound weight is one of its greatest advantages because it's so easy to lift in and out of car trunks. It officially has a two-handed fold, but reviewers say it's easy to fold and unfold. Some say they can do it with one hand once they get the hang of it.
Owners say it pushes easily, and a few say they can even push it with one hand on smooth terrain.
The fabric on the Ct0.6/Capri is not removable but can be wiped with a damp cloth along with the rest of the stroller parts. There are complaints that the wheels dirty the underside of the canopy when the stroller is folded. One parent said she puts plastic bags over the wheels before folding the stroller to prevent dirt transfer.
Lower weight rating than others in its price class. The Chicco Ct0.6/Capri stroller is only suitable for ages 6 months to 37 pounds (about 3 years old). This makes it a good stroller for toddlers, but not great for very young babies, older children or children at the upper range of their weight category. There are also quite a few complaints that the harness/crotch strap combination is too short for some children, even those who fit in the official age group and weight range.
Another common complaint among owners of the Ct0.6/Capri stroller is that its short handles don't work well for taller parents, and people with long legs might find themselves kicking the stroller while they walk The Ct0.6/Capri has a very small canopy and a small storage basket that is not easy to access, especially when the seat is reclined. It has front swivel wheels that can be locked for stability, but reviewers say it doesn't handle bumps well.
Where the Chicco Ct0.6/Capri gets its most glowing reviews is from parents who use it for travel. They love the long, slim fold, the light weight, and the included carry strap and carry bag. These parent reviewers says it's great for using in airports, at amusement parks and zoos or just to keep in the car trunk as an "quick-trip" stroller. There are many comments on how surprisingly durable the stroller is for the price, with several reviewers saying they had this stroller for 10 or more years and bought another when it wore out -- making its cost of ownership very low.
A reputation for good customer service. According to expert reviews, Chicco has a solid track record when it comes to customer service. The Chicco Ct0.6/Capri carries an industry standard, one-year warranty.
The Chicco Ct0.6 is a basic, no-frills umbrella stroller that can last for many years and for multiple children but can only be used by children from 6 months to 37 pounds, which limits its usefulness. For parents who travel with toddlers, this may make life much easier at a price that won't cause you to worry about the sometimes rough world of baggage handling.

Review credibility: Very good About.com baby products guide Heather Corley describes the Chicco Ct0.6/Capri as a decent low-priced stroller for parents of older babies and toddlers who aren't looking for a full-featured stroller. She says the Ct0.6/Capri is well featured for an umbrella stroller, especially in its price class, and it maneuvers well on smooth surfaces. She notes that the frame may not survive more than one toddler if used heavily. (Note: ConsumerSearch is owned by About.com, but the two don't share an editorial affiliation.)
