Large Sun Hood provides protection from direct overhead sunlight. Can help a child feel a little less 'exposed' in the pushchair.
The Sun Hood must be removed before the pushchair can be folded.
The Budget XL Sun Hood is needed to support the Budget XL Rain Cover
(although we can supply an alternative Storm Cover
which does not need a Sun Hood for support).IMPORTANT.
Some customers advise us that the sun hood height of 117cm (46") may cause visibility problems if you are not very tall. When the rain cover is fitted this may pull the front down a little. For some people it is possible to see where you are going through the viewing panel at the rear of the sun hood....for others the alternative Storm Cover
may be preferable.WARNING
The Sun Hood should not be used in windy weather without the Rain Cover fitted. If wind gets under the Sun Hood it can be detached and flip up against the person behind the pushchair. If you have ever used an umbrella in windy weather you'll know that a strong gust of wind can take it out of your hand. If this happened to a pushchair with a sun hood then it could be blown off a pavement and into the road. So it is an important safety feature that the sun hood detaches. Note.
The Excel Elise Sun Hood DOES NOT fit the Maclaren Major Elite.Compatibility
- this product can be used with the Excel Elise, DoBuggy, and Mobiquip (MQ XL) pushchairs.
