There is a storage basket under the seat, which is handy, since many umbrella strollers don't have any storage. The basket is mesh and can be completely removed by simply undoing the four Velcro straps that attach it to the stroller. This basket can't hold much weight, but it did hold some groceries, including a 5-lb bag of flour (which is more than it is supposed to hold). The access to the basket isn't ideal, and you probably wouldn't be able to get a diaper bag in there because of the crisscrossing frame across the back.
There are two foot brakes on the back wheels. I have accidently stepped on them when my stride is too long, which brings me to the one big drawback that I see in this stroller- it is not made for tall people. I kick the wheels if I use my regular stride. I have to take unnaturally short steps, put one foot directly in front of the other, or waddle to avoid the wheels. This is just annoying. I think it is a combination of the angle of the handles, how low the handles are and how close the back wheels are to each other. The front wheels can be locked forward or they can swivel. To lock the wheels, simply push up on the grey piece when the wheels are facing forward. The wheels are not air-filled, but there is all-wheel suspension which softens the ride, even on gravel. Honestly, umbrella strollers aren't meant to be all-terrain strollers, but this one does pretty well.

The "multi-position reclining seat" doesn't recline all that far. Basically, if you unzip both zippers on the sides of the seat, that is as far as it goes. So yes, there are two positions, but they are very similar. Most umbrella strollers don't recline at all, so again, I am not complaining!! The stroller will hold up to 37 pounds. There is a flexible plastic foot rest that is not adjustable, but our daughter is not big enough to reach it.

All in all, this is a great stroller. If you need something small and light, this fits the bill and has lots of great features. If you are tall, you won't want this to be your primary stroller, but it works great for short trips or places like the mall where a small stroller is necessary and short strides won't be as frustrating. It fits well in the trunk or back seat of the car, and again, weighs only 11lbs. My daughter weighed more than that when she was born. This typically sells for $79.99 on amazon.com and is available in a variety of colors. I have yet to find an umbrella stroller comparable in price and features!
