Overall Im happy
I bought this stroller because I wanted something light and easy to use. Its excellent in that regard. Extremely easy to use and very light. Its nice to push. However it does not lay back fully nor does it have many extras, I knew this when I bought it so Im happy with it.
Light and compact
We love the mountain buggy nano. It has been a life saver when travelling due to it being light weight and compact. It even comes with a carry bag to check into airline luggage.
Hard to fold / cheap looking.
Pushes okay and has a nice small fram for fitting in shops/crowded spaces, but I find it incredibly hard to fold up. Takes me a good 5 minutes to fold up every time. It’s small and compact which was what I wanted but also incredibly cheap/flimsy looking for the $400 price tag. Purchased online after reading lots of reviews and I was very disappointed unfortunately.
Awesome travel pram
What a fantastic travel pram !
I tested a few and the MB nano topped the list.
Great recline and handling
Folds up perfectly to fit in overhead locker of plane and super easy to open and close
Loved that the basket has no bar in the center unlike other brand travel prams.
A belly bar can be added to the pram which is a great option although it cannot fold up with it attached.
Wish you could purchase a larger sun canopy
Hard to push and non existent warranty
Bought this pram in mid 2017, after 6 months of owning it and hardly using it as it was a second pram I took back to baby kingdom saying it was really hard to push they said that mountain buggy would advise it was normal and would not even lodge a repair or claim.
I own two other prams and only bought this for a short trip I don’t feel it’s sturdy and it’s so hard to push especially if walking for a while.
I contacted mountain buggy to with no luck.
Great light weight pram minus the hood
A good light weight pram. It is slightly flimsy as expected from a stroller. I guess I’m comparing it to our previous full size Baby Jogger pram. The only two things I would really fault though is 1. When the hood is up it covers the handle bars. Which annoyed me that my hands was constantly covered by it while pushing the pram (with the hood up) and 2. the fact there there isn’t a “peek-a-boo” window in the hood for me to check on my little one. Otherwise a decent stroller maybe slightly expensive for what it is.
Broke after 18 months, no customer support.
After being owned for 18 months (and used minimally in that time) the pram will no longer fold down, making it useless. The mechanism seems to have locked up.
Mountain Buggy customer service has been totally unhelpful, initially telling me I just didn’t know how to fold the pram properly, then directing me to get it repaired at my own cost. Astounded that I paid $320 for such a poor quality product, defective within 18 months, with no customer support.
I would never buy a Mountain Buggy product again after this experience.
Purchased in December 2017 for A$320.00.
Very light and space saving. I have mountain buggy urban jungle as well but I prefer to use this MB nano. Our boot got more space for other items and very easy to use.
Purchased in June 2016 for A$350.00.
Vey light and compact
We brought this pram to travel with. I’m pleasently surprised at how durable it is and easy to you. Today I walked 4km with it and was easy to get over bumps etc. I’m still learning how to collapse it quickly. I’ve noticed when the seat is reclined back you really need to push it forward to collapse it. Apart from that I love it
Purchased in January 2019.
So glad we decided to get it
I put a lot of thought into buying a travel pram, both on if we really needed one and if yes, which one.
I loved the look of the Redsbaby Skip but the size of the Mountain Buggy Nano eventually won me over.
This pram was by far the best purchase for our trip. We travelled around Europe in December so we also bought the rain cover and snack tray. I couldnt do without either. The rain protector kept my son warm even when there was no rain. The snack tray gave him space for his drink and some toys and it is also a nudge bar if you remove the tr...ay. The tray does make it a bit more difficult to fold up but we just slotted it in the pram once folded up. We used the pram on planes and airports in Australia, Singapore and all over Europe. An absolute lifesaver to help us get checked in without our som running off and he could also nap. Fits perfectly in the cabin. We had no issues with the wheels on all different terrain. The basket underneath is small so I'd recommend a pram bag but otherwise I love it.
Can't live without it
We love our Mountain buggy nano. It's been on over 60 flights and withheld 2 years of constant use
It has fantastic recline allowing our 2.5 year old to sleep in it still.
The wheels are as good as you'd except for a small stroller.
Without a doubt I know my son is comfortable and loves this pram as much as we do.
We tossed up for a long time between this and the Babyzen Yoyo, which is about double the price. No regrets about our eventual decision - easy to use and fold and our 6 month old seems happy in it. Planning on taking it on a Cathay Pacific flight - the wheels can be taken off if we’re told it’s too big for the overhead conpartment.
Easy to use.
Small when folded. Very easy to use. The wheels are durable. But one day the wheels start to make big noise and it’s on and off. I emailed customer service and they replied after some days. I then tried to put some oil in & sound disappeared. Very good to use in airport but wish it can be a little bit more lighter.
The wheel should be smooth and push, convenient for later travel on the plane, put the trunk. , handle height design reasonable, no longer need to bend the waist cart. Five-point seat belt baby sitting at ease, push up really already feel very light, repossession, drive convenient, basic can one hand drive, repossession need both hands.
So compact :)
So I have 5 children and have been through multiple prams and strollers over the years. The Mountain Buggy Nano is by far the lightest, most compact and user friendly pram I’ve ever used!!! Very quick and easy to fold, beautiful to manoeuvre, easy to clean, folds so small it’s perfect for any size car and makes travelling a breeze as it is small enough to go in overhead compartments. Life is easy with a Nano :)
Poor quality - don’t love it
I purchased this pram before a trip to Asia so I could leave my bigger pram (upperbaby alta) at home and have something smaller.
This pram hardly handle the trip - I wish I had of got a cheaper ‘copy’ from eBay.
Pros: lightweight, easy to Gold/unfold once you get the hang of it. Good recline, great harness & buckle
Cons: (small) basket scrapes the gutters when you have to lift it so mine has quite a lot of damage and will no doubt break through very soon - after just one trip overseas!, strap covers fall off easily, when folding/unf...olding so very easy to lose, pram doesn’t sit up straight enough for my keen toddler, foot break only works from one side so if anyone not familiar uses the pram they can easily break the other brake that’s not supposed to be pushed down on (hard to explain without seeing the pram!), wheels buckle easy when not on completely flat surface. Overall it is pretty average quality for what you pay for. I wish I had of spent money on a cheap copy.

Great compact stroller
We bought this when traveling overseas with our toddler as it was within our airlines hand luggage allowance. Folds compact. Lightweight. Easy to steer, evennone handed. Reasonable under basket given the compact size. Seat lays back to allow day naps on the run. Generous shade cover. Front wheels lock for rough terrain. Secure harness strap which locks in four places to wrangle wrigglers easier.
We love using this for quick errands or travel as it is much easier to transport than a full size stroller. Folding it can take some practice as you need to hold the clips in under the handles and it consatinas on itself :)
Best travel pram
This pram is so easy to use and so compact for travel. Fits in the overhead storage on a plane and carries a lot of weight. There are extra accessories too, a sun mesh and a rain cover. This has been so helpful to us on many occasions. I currently keep in my boot for quick trips to the shops. Cannot fault it.
Good for travel.
Bought this for my grandson when we were going overseas. Take a while to get use to fold and unfold. There are much lighter ones and cheaper if you are going to Asia. Much more varieties over there. Do not buy online as it is better to physically have a look and try out the stroller.
Looks nice but Bad quality
I got this stroller home after using it once indoors the sunshade fell off when I collapsed it. It was either missing a screw or the screw fell out. It’s quite an expensive stroller it should not have happened. I like the fact that it’s reasonably light weight and I appreciate it’s not a big robust stroller you might take on rough terrain. I would not recommend it for travel or as a light weight stroller.
Questions & Answers
I know there are answers to this question on the forum - however they were answered years ago. I was just wondering if anyone has had any issues with taking the nano as carry onto Qantas.
Can someone please tell me the height of the back of the seat itself on the Nano 2 (bum to top of seat, not including head height to the hood)
I realise this is an old question but I needed to know this too.
My mountain buggy nano V2 seat measures 44-45 cm high depending on how firmly I dig the tape measure into the seat pad.
Seat in layback position - head butting up against mesh at 45 cm.
Seat upright to head touching closed canopy 68cm.
Hope that helps someone else
