Ease of Use

Fair – 4/10

Using the Graco Aire3 Click Connect Travel System can be slightly difficult. There is a crossbar that limits full access to the storage bin, and maneuvering the stroller at sharp corners is a challenge. It is also slightly difficult to fold the stroller while carrying the baby as the stroller occasionally refuses to stand on its own.

Folding

Excellent – 10/10

The folding mechanism is very easy. The Graco Aire 3 folds with one hand, and most of the time it can stand upright by itself. 

Grip

Very Good  – 7/10

The Graco Aire3 Click Connect Travel System have a padded handlebar. Making it easier to grab and hold onto. However the only thing missing is that it is not adjustable.

Maneuverability

Very Good – 7/10

The stroller has has decent maneuverability with wheels that swivel 360 degrees. While it has some difficulties in turning sharp corners, it can glide up curbs.

“Being a petite mom, I was worried about having a heavy stroller that wouldn’t fold up without a fight. This stroller is light and collapses on command. The car seat snaps in and out easily from the stroller and the car base. “

Rough Terrain

Good – 5/10

For a travel system the Graco Aire 3 is not made for rough terrain. It’s small wheels get caught onto rocks and pebbles.

Accessories

Good – 5/10

This stroller comes with cupholders of an average size. The child’s cupholder can easily fit children’s sippy cup but the ones in the parent console may be too shallow to prevent the bottle from toppling over. The Graco Aire 3 is one of the few strollers with a zip-covered compartment in the parent console.

Easy to Assemble

Very Good- 7/10

The Graco Aire 3 is easy to assemble. While there are many parts to this stroller, it would only take you 5mins to piece them up and ready to go.

Easy to Clean

Very Good – 7/10

Cleaning can be done easily, the stroller’s foot rest is made of a hard plastic material and the wide surface can be easily cleaned. You can also easily give the fabric material of the stroller a quite wipe-out.

“I love how easy it is to fold and unfold the stroller. I am not very tall and have no trouble getting this in and out of the car. The fabric is also easy to keep clean and my daughter seems to find it comfortable. “

Storage

Fair – 3/10

The Graco Aire 3 lacks in providing ample storage space as a travel stroller. While the storage bin seems decently large, it sits under the child seat and because of an existing crossbar, it limits the amount of things you can fit.

Child Comfort

Very Good – /10

The Graco Aire 3 is a comfortable ride for the child since it has multiple recline position. The full flat recline feature is one of the best things a travel stroller can offer!

Sun Canopy

Very Good – 7/10

The canopy is of the stroller is decently huge to protect the child from the sun. However, it has be noted that the canopy occasionally gets stuck at the handlebar.

Suspension

Very Good – 7/10

Suspension on the wheels are decent. It is able to provide a smooth ride on regular terrain.
