Its very light weight. Can fold into one umbrella like stick. Need one of this sort for travel. I use it though. Only two things I don't like : -After folding it when it turns into a straight rod like thing there is nothing to hold it, it can collapse and opens up. you have to manually hold it to keep it together. -The front half circle holder is not openable. Baby's legs gets stuck in that while taking the child out of the stroller.
