Overall Reaction: In spite of initially thinking that it was so small it wouldn’t fit my large pushchair , it did fit perfectly. It was easy to attach with Velcro straps that held it in place very well.   The mesh is breathable, but I wasn’t sure that Brandon would like being behind the black mesh. There is a zip at the front for the flap to open though.

I put the shade on the pushchair and then put Brandon in through the front flap. He was surprisingly quite happy to sit behind the mesh, so he must have been able to see out ok or he wouldn’t have been so good.  It’s quite dark and he did fall asleep when we had the shade on.  He was kept lovely and cool and protected, and he was quite happy to have it on his pushchair.

The only problem I have is that it just doesn’t look very appealing on the pushchair, but the shading properties and keeping baby cool inside outweigh the strange look of it.
