DURABILITY

Very Good – 7/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip Convenience Stroller’s frame is made from durable aluminiunm which allows it it to be lightweight at the same time. Its wheels are also doubled to help the user ride more smoothly.

The 3D Flip features a mesh peekaboo window in order to keep track of the child

WEIGHT

Excellent – 7/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip is light enough to carry but is not the lightest stroller out there, some lightweights strollers can go as low as 7lbs. But this is made up by the sturdier build it is composed of. The frame is made out of aluminum which makes the stroller durable. This stroller weighs in at 14lbs.

BRAKES

Good – 6/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip contains two brakes that are located right above the rear end wheels. Each brake must be stepped on in order to lock the rear end wheels. This stroller cannot receive a higher rating because many strollers have a single break that can lock both wheels. These breaks are not flip flop friendly. The front wheels also have locks for rougher terrain.

COMPACT

Very Good- 8/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip Convenience Stroller is compact and can fit through almost any location with ease, it measures in at 43″ H x 18″ W x 27″ L unfolded, this is actually the same size at the 3D Lite and the 3D Zyre. Which are similar models to the 3D Flip, but of cheaper and slightly more expensive cost. When folded the 3D Zyre measures in at 42″L x 12″W x 13″H, so it is almost as along it is when it is usually standing. But this is easy to store in a closet or trunk of a car. 

“I love this stroller! We wanted an umbrella stroller for the ease of transportation small footprint, but didn’t think there was anything available for infants with how much support they require. Enter the 3D Flip! It does take a bit of practice to open and close it, but that’s what YouTube videos are for ;)”

EASE OF USE

Excellent – 9/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip Convenience Stroller is easy to use. This is because it is one of the few stroller that has the ability to recline with one hand. The stroller is also easy to fold as well, but does require both hands and cannot be carried on the shoulder since it is a little heavier. The canopy is also easy to open and close and does not require any hooks or velcro, however whenever the user needs to move the canopy from forward to rear end facing it does make a very loud sound.

FOLDING

Very Good – 9/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip is an easy stroller to fold, but the fold does require two hands. It is a standard compact fold, the stroller measures at 42″L x 12″W x 13″H , which is the same measurement as the 3D Zyre and 3D Lite.

GRIP

Very Good – 7/10

The handlebar height on the 3D Flip is not adjustable, but it is comfortable due to foam padding.

MANEUVERABILITY

Very Good- 8/10

Maneuvering the Summer Infant 3D Flip has four 6″ wheels which is an average size for a lightweight stroller. These wheels are good to maneuver on flat surfaces, they also are doubled wheel. 

“This is an amazing stroller. I am an avid baby wearer, but I broke my wrist and tying wraps was impossible. My husband did not enjoy baby wearing as much, so we decided to purchase a stroller.”

EASY TO CLEAN

Very Good – 8/10

The Summer Infant 3D Flip’s parts are detachable such as the wheels and sun canopy. But it is easier to clean the stroller on the spot without taking the parts off. Just use a hose and light soap.

“I came across this stroller, while browsing on Amazon. I saved this in my registry, in case I didn’t find something different. I received the stroller today. Putting it together was very easy. You pretty much only need to attach the wheels, canopy, and cup holder. Flipping it from reverse to front facing is super easy. The canopy gave me a little trouble at first, but looking at the instructions is a HUGE help!”

STORAGE

Very Good – 7/10

The storage space on the Summer Infant 3D Flip is not as good as the Summer Infant 3D Zyre, but it does have two side pockets in which people can store smaller items like a wallet and phone.

WHAT DO EXPERTS SAY?

“This model weighs only 14 lbs making it great for traveling and running errand. The compact fold and carry strap make it very easy to transfer in and out of the car. I also think that combination of black and light gray material with a darker gray logo and butterflies looks very stylish and modern. ” – Mom’s Stroller Reviews

“The Summer Infant 3D Flip Convenience Stroller is a good cross between a durable stroller and a convenience stroller, offering lightweight design with lots of features. The baby seat can face backward or forward to put your baby right where you want them. But are the extra features worth paying extra money over other convenience strollers? Maybe not. ” –  Experienced Mommy
