If you are confused by all the Armadillos running around, you are not along. Mamas & Papas decided to take over the stroller market by making every kind of Armadillo possible. They are only missing a jogger at this point. LOL. Anyways, there are total of five different models in Armadillo series: Armadillo, Armadillo XT, Armadillo City, Armadillo Flip, and Armadillo Flip XT. BTW, here is my full side-by-side comparison.
Some of you might haven’t heard of the XT addition because Mamas & Papas haven’t advertise it as much. They quietly added XT and Flip XT to the line of Armadillos without really creating a big splash. This really surprised me since XT and Flip XT are both long-awaited strollers for 2015.
At this point you are probably wondering how Armadillo XT different from the regular Armadillo. Well, it has some great updates like mesh in the canopy for better air flow, larger wheels that can handle more terrain, adjustable handle bar for shorter and taller parents and new sporty design on the canopy.
Just like the original model it features roomy seat, very deep one-hand recline, large basket, supersized canopy, adjustable leg rest, all-wheel suspension, flip-flop friendly brake, automatic lock, standing fold, travel system option, and very compact one-hand fold. You can also turn it into a travel system. The seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 5o lbs. With all these upgrades XT weighs only 20 lbs. Sounds like a perfect stroller? It might be! This could be definitely your ONLY stroller.
