At a glance:

The Mytrax Flex combination pram is packed full of features making it ideal for all trips. Easy to use, it can be perfectly adapted into a handy travel system with the addition of the car seat or ramble carrycot. Simple to fold it has a one-hand flash fold in the middle of the seat. It can also stand when folded. The Mytrax will give you and your precious little one a smooth and comfortable ride when out and about.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Charlotte: I would recommend this product to a fellow mum because it has some very good design features. The basket was a good size and fit lots of items in which was very handy. The pram was easy to steer and manoeuvre and I felt that it was a good weight and not too heavy. It was easy to fold once you knew how.

Katie: One of the main things I liked about this pushchair was how stylish and understated it looked. The materials that it is made from feel and look like good quality. The pushchair has a nice finish overall. I especially like the tan handle. The extending handle would make this suitable and comfortable to use for people of differing heights. My husband (who is 6 foot) really appreciated this feature. It would also be great for people with limited space for storage or transport due to the way it easily folds down to a small size.

Emma: The pushchair is very agile and light to push. The quality of the product feels very high, with a nice leather handle and good quality materials. It folds down very compact for storage and travel. However, it is too heavy to get in and out of a car whilst collapsed.

How did this product make your life easier?

Hannah: This pushchair can make your life easier if you use a pushchair a lot. It is easy to push one-handed which is great if you need to hold a toddlers hand or pick up a crying baby. The convenient pouch makes your life easier by giving you quick access to those items you need to hand. The big hood means it is easy to keep the sun off the baby but also allows air to flow through the vents. There is no need for an extra parasol.

Aurelie: This product was easy to put together. I absolutely loved the easy driving and the tyres. It is so practical as it can go on any type of terrain.

Cate: This pram was very easy to manoeuvre, to get out and about and to get in and out of the car. I wouldn’t say it is a light pram but it certainly folds away very easily in one movement which makes it very efficient. It felt very bouncy to take out and was enjoyable to use. I think the frame is very robust and it looks like it would be quite durable.

Would you choose this product to win?

Katie: I would definitely choose this product over others on the market due to how lovely it is to stroll with. During long walks with my toddler, he looks comfortable throughout and the recliner is great. I love the basket space, cup holder and also the little pouch with a zip at the bottom of the pushchair.

Beth: It's so simple to use. You can put it up and down very quickly and easily despite it being quite large and heavy. The straps felt very secure for my son and the padding made him look very comfortable. I liked that the part of the strap that came up between his legs was longer than on a lot of pushchairs which made the buckle fit up higher on his torso. The clip felt solid so that I felt that he was safe and secure and was not going to be able to unclip himself or wriggle his arms out.

Sarah: I think if the basket was accessible at all times, I would definitely consider this pram. I liked everything else about it. The adjustable hood was a great help for sheltering my little one from the low sun, something that has been an issue when walking home in the evening. The seat itself was comfortable and my boy was happy in it.

What changes would you make to this product?

Carys: The basket didn’t have much of an entry point, so although it was fairly large, it was difficult to get much in there. Once the back was reclined you couldn’t get into it at all. At one point my son was asleep so I had to be cold as I couldn’t get my jacket out without disturbing him. Having a decent basket is really handy, but only if you can get into it.

Charlotte: I would change how easily accessible the pram basket is when the chair is reclined. I found it more difficult to access when my daughter was asleep and found myself knocking her and waking her when trying to put things in or remove them. However, the basket size overall was good.

Katie: The main thing I did not like about this pushchair was the storage basket underneath. There is very little clearance to get things into the basket. My changing bag would not fit into it for example. This problem is further exacerbated when the chair is in the reclined position. The basket appears to be of an adequate size but the gap between the seat of the chair and the top of the basket is not wide enough.
