Decent value and will do its job
on 6 May 2017
Too many reviews read like an advertising pamphlet. I regularly write reviews that are honest including the good the bad and the ugly.
I write my reviews based on my personal opinions gleaned as a result of decades of experiences in a professional occupation, as a
consumer, as a property owner and raising a family.
When I bought this sun screen stroller on 01/05/2017 it was being sold at a cost of £14.99 and as a "prime item".
Prime items are sold with a promised next day delivery for Amazon Prime Members.
You cannot rely on the next day delivery promise.
There is no indication as to what any additional postage charges will be in regard to non amazon prime members.
I bought this sun screen in regard to my Hauck viper buggy which is, if you do not know of a three wheel design. It does have a rectangular
profile as is the case of most buggies.
Update comment, Used for a single walk a day during this last week, the cover is not as well made as with first impressions.
The material is stretching and losing its shape. It has NOT been kept stretched or under pressure yet the stitching across its entire width is showing signs of possibly failing.
Stitches which were not visible are now visible looking as though two pieces of sewn material are being pulled apart thus making sewing visible.
The mesh net, some form of nylon material has a single pull in it the way a sock or stocking gets when snagged.
The mesh is also stretching even though it has not been put under any pressure other than when velcro on either side was being applied to keep the material in place.
The cover itself does however provide good protection and shade and my little darling is not put off by the cover in any way.
She sleeps, wakes and watches without hinderence.
END OF UPDATE
The rectangle of the buggy measures approximately 36 inches long X 18 inches wide and 46 inches from front to top on the diagonal
The sun shade fits this buggy as it should. The design of the cover is such that top and bottom is easily determined as is inner and outside.
The material is a stretchy nylon type material which is very easy to pack and unpack into a small sewn on storage bag. When packed
it is approximately 6 - 7 inches in diameter and about 2 inches thick so is easily stored.
The seller states that there is all manner of Uv etc protection. I cannot verify such but can say that it will provide shade from the sun.
Extend the hood on your buggy and fold / stretch the cover over the hood. the remainder of the cover will stretch down over the foot
plate area and sides. There are several fixing velcro attachments either side and top which I found easy to use with the frame on my particular buggy.
The cover fits around the buggy handles with no problem. We have found that the complete cover can fold back into the hood as a temporary measure to allow feeding etc.
The down side of this cover is that up close, the mesh of the material is not easy to see through so watching the youngster may not be as
easy as you would like. That said, take a step or two backward and it is much easier to see through.
The youngster in the buggy will be able to see out and about without any difficulty.
The most important thing is that the cover will give a good screening protection to the child within.
Overall, the selling cost of the cover at £14.99 is as good in terms of value that I have seen on an internet basis and significantly better
than what I have seen on a high street basis.
Treated properly, The cover should perform its function for a decent length of time, adding to its overall value but you should bear its overall construction in mind
