I am one busy stay at home Momma! When my 4-year-old is in school I’m busy running errands, visiting the park, playdates, and more with my lil guy. There was just one problem: we didn’t own a single stroller. We have two double strollers for different uses, but a single stroller is what I needed during the week. And thanks to this Eddie Bauer Trail Hiker Travel System my problem is now solved!
Is that travel system beautiful or what?! First, I have to talk about the color choices Eddie Bauer created for the Trail Hiker travel system: Cardinal, Peak Blue, and Limeade. We received the travel system in Cardinal. I love the surprising pop of color from each color combination. They are different from your typical beiges and pastels you are offered from other stroller lines.

I really like the 3-wheel design of this stroller. It’s not only a sporty look, but also very easy to maneuver. It was effortless pushing my lil guy on both grass and sidewalks. There are three wheel locks, one in the front and two in the rear. The storage basket is large enough to fit our diaper bag, which is always important.
I also appreciate the slim outline of the Trail Hiker travel system. And I like that the infant car seat and stroller canopies come together providing just a snippet to peek in on baby. It’s perfect for keeping out noises and bugs too.
One of my favorite features in the adjustable shoulder straps that grow with your child. There are three levels in all. I also appreciate a company that considers the parents needs by providing a parent tray with dual cup holders and covered storage, which is perfect for keys or a cell phone. The child’s tray is easily removable too. Another favorite is the one-hand fold. I looooove a stroller that is easy to fold!
To fold the stroller you simply slide and squeeze the button on the handle and fold the top half of the stroller towards you. It’s pretty slim when folded and fits nicely in the trunk of our van or hubby’s sedan. I removed the child’s tray to show the slimness, but it can be folded with the tray attached.
Not only is the Eddie Bauer Trail Hiker Travel System easy to fold, easy to maneuver, and classy looking, but it’s also lightweight. It requires minimal assembly too! All that needs to be added are the wheels and trays, which took all of 5 minutes to complete. Thank you Eddie Bauer for making it easy on us!
I can not say enough good things about the Trail Hiker travel system! If you are in the market for a great travel system I highly recommend checking out the Eddie Bauer Trail Hiker. It’s available for purchase at Target, and at the time of this review was priced at $199! That’s a steal! I am super excited to report that they have also agreed to a giveaway for one lucky My Boys and Their Toys reader!
