We live near a beautiful lake that is within walking distance to our home. Our wakesurfing boat is kept on the lake and now that Kate is old enough to safely ride along in the boat we are trying to spend more time enjoying the water. All the other moms out there are likely to agree with me when I state the obvious: getting kids in and out of car seats can be a real chore. It’s much easier for us to walk to the lake with the kids and our puppy than it is to try to get everything loaded up into the car for a 2-minute car ride. We usually take snacks, water bottles, towels, life jackets, and other necessities such as diapers and wipes. The kids ride along in our double stroller, but there is not enough room for everything to fit below them in the mesh basket. Thus, we had to find a way to easily get all of our gear to the lake. After doing some research I decided to purchase the Mac Sports Collapsible Folding Outdoor Utility Wagon. This has been one of the best purchases that we’ve made this summer!
The Mac Sports Collapsible Folding Outdoor Utility Wagon is a must-have for a number of reasons. First, it can hold a ton of stuff – sports equipment, a cooler, chairs, beach towels – you name it! We are able to easily fit everything that we need into this wagon for a day at the beach or on the boat. It has a carrying capacity of 150 pounds, so you really can load it up without having to worry about damaging the frame. The design of this wagon is lightweight, yet it is extremely durable. For those interested, the dimensions of the wagon are approximately 35.5” x 20” x 22.5”. This past weekend we had our wagon packed to the top and there was still enough room to put a huge inflatable tube on the very top of everything. Since I’m talking about size I should mention that when folded this wagon is 29.5’ x 20’ x 8”. Yes, that’s not a typo, it really is only 8” thick when folded up! Its compact design is nice if you do need to transport it in your car. It also comes with a carrying case, which is handy for storage when not using.
Second, there is no assembly required so it’s super easy to use. There are no extra parts to worry about and you can easily have it ready to go in just a few seconds! It breaks down quickly too, so it’s very convenient for families who are on the go!
Third, this wagon has an adjustable handle. I’m not that tall, so it works just fine for me when fully extended. It may be a bit easier for taller individuals to use if the handle was a bit longer. This is definitely not a deal breaker, just something that I want to mention. Also, the handle does not attach to the front axle, so some people have mentioned that it’s a bit more difficult to maneuver. It does take a bit of getting used to at first due to the fact that the handle does not swivel. Again, this is not something that I would worry about too much when considering this wagon.
Fourth, the fabric that is used is very durable and easy to clean. So far it has held up extremely well. There are two convenient mesh cup holders that are located at the front of the wagon. This makes it easy to transport water bottles, as they stay upright during use.
Overall, this is definitely a must-have for parents who want to make their lives easier when out and about with their kids and gear. I can’t stress enough how pleased I am with this purchase. Going to the beach or to the splash pad became so much easier once I started using this wagon. I no longer have to worry about not being able to fit everything underneath the stroller, nor do I have to make multiple trips to the car or juggle a zillion things in my arms while trying to carry a baby. Trust me, your outings will never be the same once you have this amazing wagon!
