Mountain Buggy Nano Review

The Nano is Mountain Buggy’s most compact strollers that is easy to fold and small enough to fit in an overhead compartment of many airplanes. It was introduced last year and has been a big hit among avid traveling parents. It’s lightweight and compact but big on features!

The Mountain Buggy Nano seat has a 44 lb weight capacity and is suitable from birth (when used with an infant car seat). It measures 13 1/2″ wide with an 18″ seat back and a measurement of 27″ from seat back to canopy. The deep recline is done with a strap system and is great for a nap. There is an adjustable, padded, 5-point harness with a hard-to-do buckle for safety. Well, the buckle is easy for mom but difficult for curious toddlers to master.

The canopy on the Nano is decent with two full panels and a pop-out sun visor. While it doesn’t necessarily have a peek-a-boo window on top, there is a really large mesh window on the back of the canopy that acts as the back of the seat fabric to allow air to circulate through the seat.

The handle is tall measuring 40″ from ground to handle but certainly isn’t the tallest handle on the market. If you are super tall, you might want to test this stroller out first before committing.


When parents travel, we carry a lot of extra essentials with us. The Nano has a decent size basket (for a travel stroller) that is accessible from both front and back to accommodate these extras.

Rolling on 5 1/2″ EVA tires and with rear wheel suspension, the Nano is easy to push even with one hand. The front wheels are swivel wheels that can lock straight for grass, gravel and playground mulch, but know that this is not an all-terrain stroller.

No one has time for a hard-to-fold buggy on-the-go, so we are pleased that the Nano folds easily! Sure, it takes two hands to fold it but it can be done in mere seconds and even comes with an auto lock. Unfolding is just as easy! Watch our video review to see it in action.

While many super lightweight strollers can’t handle an infant car seat, the Nano can, making it a travel system. With the integrated straps under the seat, the Nano accepts most major brands of infant car seats making the stroller suitable from birth.

The Mountain Buggy Nano retails for $199 and is available now. It is small on space but big on features and could be the travel stroller for you!

How about the new version of the nano? Seems to be much better than the old one?

Wow that looks awesome. I have been looking for a lightweight stroller for a while. The Nano looked interesting but I thought from the pictures that it looked unattractive and not as small as they purported. This video shows me that I was wrong and the Nano is now at the top of my list. I love how you can carry it on a plane. My only concern is that it looks like it would be hot for the child. I currently have a mountain buggy duet that I love but my daughter gets really hot and refuses to sit in it sometimes. Maybe some kind of liner would mitigate that? Or a fan?
