Maclaren Techno XLR (umbrella stroller)
At $70 and 2 lbs more than the Techno XT, the Techno XLR accommodates an infant car seat for use from birth and is a little wider in the seat than the XT. Both models are lightweight (XT: 14.3 lbs, XLR: 16.3 lbs), yet loaded with exactly the features you need, including one-handed folding, fully reclining padded seat with extendable leg rest, height-adjustable handles, a hood and rainshield and larger wheels (6.5 inches) than most other umbrella stroller for better handling and shock absorption. Like the XT, the Techno XLR is an excellent value and has the added benefit of accommodating an infant car seat.
