In this HPZ Pet Rover review we will be taking a look at one of the most popular and well-built pet strollers available.
The HPZ Pet Rover has certainly taken the Pet Stroller market by storm. With outstanding design features and heavy duty parts, the HPZ is the ideal stroller for any type of pet or pets that have a combined weight of 75 Lbs or less.
So why has this particular stroller received so many 5 star reviews? Read our HPZ Pet Rover Review to find out.
When it comes to price, the HPZ Pet Rover is cheaper than most of the Pet Gear models that have similar specifications. If you are looking for value for money, the HPZ is right at the top of the list.
Although the HPZ costs less than some of the comparable strollers, there is only one area where costs have been cut – the wheels. Instead of using Pneumatic, air filled tires, HPZ have opted for the hard rubber type of tire. However, the manufacturers have combated any negative reaction by offering a full 3 year wheel replacement guarantee.
Build quality & Design:
The build quality is of a very high standard and should withstand the punishment of daily use. The main frame is manufactured from oval steel tube, as opposed to a circular tube used on many strollers, giving it much more strength and rigidity.
The design aspects are actually on par with a top of the range child stroller. It is instantly apparent that a lot of thought has gone into the HPZ. Everything from the reversible handle bar to the large storage areas have been designed with the user in mind. Overall, on the design front, the HPZ Pet Rover is outstanding and cannot be criticized in any way.
The storage space is yet another area where the stroller excels over the competition. There is a large storage pocket at the rear, two smaller storage pockets at the rear sides and an extra-large, easy to access basket under the pet cabin. The HPZ also comes with a bottle holder attached to the lower handle bar assembly. So, there’s plenty of room for treats, blankets, toys etc.
Wheels & Tires:
The tires are manufactured from foam EVA (Ethylene Vinyl acetate) which do not provide as much shock absorbing as the air filled (pneumatic) tires, however, the HPZ does have a shock absorbing system that works well and reduces any sort of vibration. On the plus side, the tires are hard wearing, puncture free and don’t require inflating. The manufacturer also provides a 3 year wheel replacement program to replace damaged or worn-out wheels at no charge!
The two front wheels can be locked into position, which, when combined with the suspension system, provides a very smooth and comfortable ride for your pet, especially if you plan to use it on uneven terrain or want to walk fast with it.
If you plan on using the HPZ with the canopy in the upright position, there are two 15 inch leash tethers inside the pet cabin area, one on the left and one to the right, which are great for keeping your pet or pets from jumping out of the stroller.
Locking both back wheels is simply a case of pressing your foot down on one of the rear brake levers, which locks both wheels simultaneously.
Interior Cabin & Canopy:
Once again, the HPZ Pet Rover excels in the interior design department. The pet cabin can be extended to take a larger pet or two pets and reduced to accommodate a small pet. Changing the size of the pet cabin is simply a case of pulling the extension piece up or down at the rear of the stroller.
The two high-density 1600D Polyester fabric pads that are included with the stroller are comfortable, stain resistant and machine washable.
Mesh windows are located at the front of the pet cabin and to the front and rear of the canopy. A coverable mesh window is located at the top of the cabin that allows you to view your precious cargo. The mesh itself is fine enough to stop bugs while still maintaining its strength and providing plenty of airflow.
Another feature I liked were the two clips that secure the canopy to the pet cabin, eliminating the problems of broken and jammed zippers. The only zipper you may or may not use is the one located at the lower front of the pet cabin.
The canopy can be un-clipped and folded back towards the handles, allowing unrestricted access when loading and unloading your pet.
The pet cabin dimensions are:
Reduced: L 15″ x W 18″ H23″
Expanded: L 30″ x W 18″ x H23″
Folding and Unfolding:
Folding the stroller is simply a case of pressing a lever down on the side and folding it up. Unfolding is just as easy. The video below shows how to fold, unfold and expand the cabin of the HPZ.
There are three colors to choose from; Red, Navy Blue and Sky Blue.
The stroller comes mostly assembled; all that’s required is to fit the four wheels, which just push and click into place. See images below.
With a lifetime limited warranty, 3 year wheel guarantee and incredible customer service, HPZ seem to have cornered the market in a big way. Just by looking at the Amazon reviews you can see how very highly rated this stroller is.
The only negative that’s worth mentioning is that a rain cover has not been included, although, not really a negative as the manufacturers do sell one on their website. Maybe I was on a mission to find something, in fact, anything negative to report for the purpose of this HPZ Pet Rover Review.
If you are looking for a great value for money, heavy duty pet stroller that is easy to maneuver and has all design features of a much more expensive product, add the HPZ Pet Rover to your shortlist.
