Best Umbrella Strollers 2018 | Brands You Can Trust

Best Umbrella Strollers 2018

Time flies so fast these days, and before I know it, a whole year just flew by! And you know what that means… Our annual round-up of the best umbrella strollers 2018 is finally here!

It’s been a while since I wrote a new post. And honestly, it didn’t help that 2018 came in dull for the baby stroller market. Hence, it was hard for me to decide which best umbrella strollers for the year to feature. Unlike in 2017, there were lots of new umbrella strollers that made the competition stiff. But this year, it’s the exact opposite!

There weren’t lots of new strollers that could make a splash this year worthy of your attention. So, it’s best to just stick with the old and tested models we already know so well. Or that’s what I thought until the old and tested models turned to better and newer versions of themselves!

*Spoiler alert*, I’m talking about the highly-anticipated and well-loved UPPAbaby umbrella strollers.

Okay, before we scream into excitement, there’s another gem that I think you’ll find pleasant. It’s great that we’re not just looking into improved versions of the stroller but actually find a new model of a stroller to get excited about. And I’m starting the with it for my list of best umbrella strollers 2018.

The Reviews

Graco Travelite Stroller

Graco TraveliteGraco has been around for over 60 years in making baby products. Staying that long in the business means having the expertise in providing solutions to parent’s needs. And true enough, they’re now one of the most reputable brands among baby products.

If you’re going to ask me, I could say I’m also a fan of their products. More so recently when they introduced their Graco Breaze Click Connect strollers! It was such a hit back in 2015 up to present, due to its well-thought-out design and functionality. Not only do you get a reliable umbrella stroller, but also allows you to use it as a travel system.

So, it’s no surprise to see another Graco stroller to make it as a contender for the best umbrella strollers 2018 list. And this time, you can enjoy the same quality standards from a reputable brand for a much affordable price with Graco Travelite.

Graco Travelite costs way cheaper than the Breaze and markets itself for the budget conscious parents. Hence, some capabilities of the Breaze are no longer present with Travelite. So no, you can’t use it to connect to a car seat anymore. It just works not far different from your average umbrella strollers, but still offers a bit more for a good price.

While its name suggests it to be lite, it’s not exactly the best lightweight umbrella stroller around. But I suppose, in exchange for the extra weight, you get a sturdier frame that won’t easily topple over. Furthermore, its weight is the last thing you need to worry as it is still very manageable at 15 pounds. After all, it has convenient designs that can let you stay on the go.

For one, it has a carry strap that makes it easy for you to bring it anywhere with you. Secondly, it folds quickly and compactly. You won’t even need to drop everything you’re holding just to operate this thing since you can fold it with just one hand. It also has a storage latch that will keep it nicely folded.

Although Travelite offers quite a bargain, you won’t feel they’ve cheaped out on features. Safety and comfort of your kid are never compromised. You get a standard safety harness that can grow with your child. Not literally, of course, but it is convertible. You can use its 5 point harness first. But as your baby grows, you can adjust it to a 3 point buckle. Moreover, its calf support is also adjustable to accommodate your baby’s growth. You can then flip the leg rest up too, so your tot’s feet won’t dangle down.

As a practical mom, I just love these “grow with your baby” features in strollers. It shows how Travelite tries to commit to staying with me and my kid for a long time. Then again, it breaks my heart that it can only hold a child up to 40 pounds. It would’ve been better if it’s up to 50 though, so I don’t really recommend this for big kids.

To ease our hearts, Graco throws in a removable arm bar for an additional boost on safety and comfort. It’s well-padded that lets your little tots hold on to something, especially during that bumpy ride.

In terms of comfort, the seat also has a decent amount of padding that won’t let your baby’s little bum sore after long hours of sitting. On top of that, the stroller can recline to multiple positions to find the right comfort for your child’s mood. Surprisingly, the size of the canopy is sufficient to actually provide shade.

As for parent’s convenience, the stroller offers a removable cup holder to keep you hydrated while on the go. And a large basket for your bags and other essentials, which you can easily access at the bottom. It also has a 1-step foot brake to easily put this on full stop!

Overall, Graco Travelite makes traveling with your baby with ease. While it’s not the lightest around in a sense, it packs just right for your travel needs! Not to mention, it has lockable-front swivel wheels with proper suspension for smooth and stable maneuverability. With no more than $60, you might as well consider this as one of the best cheap umbrella strollers as well. It is lite on the pocket but big for your travels with your baby.

UPPAbaby Umbrella Strollers

Uppababy glite and gluxe

After the appetizer, we’re now on to the main course – the UPPAbaby G-lite and G-luxe strollers! Yey! Having these 2 part of our best umbrella strollers 2018 list is no big surprise. After all, they’ve been fan favorites and my personal top picks for the best umbrella strollers throughout the years.

The UPPAbaby umbrella strollers have been around for quite a few years now and they’ve been warmly received. After a successful long run, it’s just about time that they shake things up to keep us on board.

Because let’s face it, we like to see new things! Just like how we always anticipate the new iPhone model to come out every year, despite their little upgrades. Luckily for us, we don’t have to worry about getting left behind the trends, since strollers don’t have to come out with new models yearly.

As for both UPPAbaby umbrella strollers, the most noticeable change is their fabulous facelift! Both strollers look sleeker and more premium. But they don’t just look good, they’re even sturdier than ever. Its aluminum frame feels thicker and more robust while keeping the stroller as light as possible.

Both of their canopies now have multi-panel knit, giving it a new shape and curvier look. I’m actually liking this new canopy design, and I feel like it’s working its purpose much better than before. The curve shape design looks bigger and provides better coverage. In fact, it looks like its old canopy with the sunshade already extended. And since the new canopy design still has an extendable UPF 50+ sunshade, using it will further enhance its sun coverage up to your baby’s body. Pretty neat!

Lastly, UPPAbaby has new wheels that are slightly bigger and now has better tracking. The bigger diameter, plus 4 wheel suspension, help absorb shocks and bumps from uneven terrains. While the G-lite still has 4 double wheels, the G-luxe has been replaced with single front wheels. In which, I might have some reservations about this alteration. Since changing double wheels into single wheel may have both pros and cons. So whether liking it or not will be up to you and how you’ll use the stroller often.

The good thing about double wheels is when one wheel falls into a crevice or crack, the other wheel can help it get out from being stuck. On the other hand, single wheel allows better handling of the stroller, even off-road surfaces. But I guess this works out fine since only the front wheels are replaced with single wheels. Whereas the back wheels still retain double wheels. In addition, the G-lite has 4.5-inch diameter wheels, while the G-luxe has 5.5-inch diameters.

UPPAbaby G-LITE Stroller

That pretty much sums up the major changes done to these 2 UPPAbaby strollers. It’s now time to get into the nitty-gritty features of the G-lite!

As you can already tell, the UPPAbaby G-lite is the lite version of G-luxe. And it’s partially similar to Graco Travelite, but for a heftier price tag. So with such similarity, why should you choose G-lite over Travelite? Well, if you’re really limited to budget then Travelite is the best for you. But if money is not an issue, then there are more reasons why G-lite could win you over.

Just by comparing the looks of the two, you can tell that the G-lite has better structure and material. It has a thicker aluminum steel frame that could last for years. In fact, it can carry a heavier weight of up to 55 pounds. That already says a lot despite being a lite version. The company didn’t just skimp out on quality materials.

Its canopy is totally unbeatable even without needing to extend its UPF sun shade. Staying true to its name, the G-lite is really lightweight for just 11.2 pounds. It helps that its seat does not have full padding so it doesn’t add more weight. Some parents may prefer a full-padded seat for the comfort of their child. But don’t worry, the bottom seat does having padding on them. While the mesh back provides breathability instead, which makes it really comfortable during extra hot days.

Although, I would like to see if they can incorporate a roll-up pad for the back similar to Kolcraft Cloud Umbrella Stroller. This way, we can cover up the mesh back during the cold season. On the other hand, in the event of accidental spills, the G-lite won’t easily get messy. That’s due to its fabric being stain and water resistant.

While the old G-lite doesn’t recline, the new version can now recline. But honestly, don’t expect too highly of the reclining capability as it only relies on a zipper recline. Still, I appreciate the gesture on their part.

Folding this thing is just as easy. There’s no need for extra feet action, just reach for a hand level trigger then fold it. It folds compactly and could fit inside car’s trunk no problem.

Lastly, you get the same benefits like the Travelite. From parent cup holder, carry strap, 5-point safety harness, ergonomic handles and an easy-access basket make up for its complete package. Keep in mind that its basket has a 10-pound weight limit.

So what makes the UPPAbaby G-Lite part of the best umbrella strollers 2018 list is due to its quality build. When you don’t want a bulky and expensive stroller, then light umbrella strollers are the next best thing. However, some of them tend to be too flimsy and unsafe for your kids, especially the inexpensive ones. But with UPPAbaby G-lite, you know you and your baby are in good hands. While it’s far from being cheap, it’s an investment well worth it. It has a robust built while staying very lightweight with features you can trust.

UPPAbaby G-LUXE Stroller

Now if you want the deluxe version of the G-Lite, then you gotta have the G-Luxe! It has all features of the G-Lite with few more to offer. However, having more features mean gaining more weight. As a result, it’s understandably heavier at 16.3 pounds.

So what do you get in exchange for the additional weight? For one, the stroller looks fuller. The seat is roomier and now has full padding. The canopy is slightly longer than G-lite, but both still have an extendable UPF 50+ sunshade.

The fabric stays water and stain resistant. But since it’s not full-proof from any dirt, you still have to occasionally clean the stroller to prevent any germs or bacteria build-up. Fortunately, it’s now easier for you to clean the G-luxe as its fabric is removable and washable. You can keep the stroller clean, thereby, keeping your baby safe.

You also get to appreciate a better folding and reclining mechanism of the G-luxe. You still just have to reach for the hand-level trigger to fold this thing. However, it can stand on its own even when folded. Hence, it stays clean and keeps you hands-free! It doesn’t have to touch the ground and get dirty while you put stuff inside your car.

Since this is a deluxe version we’re talking, you’re getting more reclining positions out of the G-luxe. It has multiple reclining positions while it’s so easy to operate. It only takes one hand to switch positions. Pair it with an adjustable footrest, and you get the most comfortable stroller for your little one to sit or take a nap on.

Other than that, you get the same benefits of a cup holder, spacious basket, convenient carry-strap, 5-point safety harness and tall, ergonomic handles. While its big and shock-absorbing wheels with a one-step brake help to maneuver and control this thing much easier. Lastly, you can start using the G-luxe for your kids as early as their 3 months of age, against the usual recommendation of 6 months.

With not more than hundred bucks difference from the G-lite, you definitely are getting more bells and whistles out of the G-Luxe. While it may require a little investment on your part, it’s definitely gonna go a long way. With the quality components of G-luxe has, it will most likely outlive the average life of a handful of umbrella strollers! So you get loads of features for your money and makes the most out of it for a long time. Considering this as just part of the best umbrella strollers 2018 is an understatement, as it sure will compete well with others year after year.

Honorable Mention

Chicco New Liteway Stroller

UPPAbaby isn’t the only brand with new facelift strollers. Chicco has also decided to bring in a new look for their Chicco Liteway lineup. Although the Chicco brand has always been a household name for baby products, the New Liteway didn’t make the cut for my best umbrella strollers 2018 list. It’s not because it’s not good, but I just find the stroller to still be closely similar to its previous models for it to make a buzz for 2018.

It just didn’t get me as excited as when I saw the new UPPAbaby umbrella strollers. There weren’t as much as new features or upgrades to expect from the New Liteway, except for the overall look. Nevertheless, the new Liteway still makes a great option for your stroller needs. It is just as good and reliable as its previous version. After all, they say, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it!

The features of the Liteway are like the combination of the 3 strollers I just reviewed. It has some of the limits of a Travelite but has the strengths of the UPPAbaby’s. For one thing, it can only hold a weight of up to 40 pounds, despite having aluminum components. On the bright side, due to its aluminum frame, the Chicco Liteway is just as durable, but not as expensive as the UPPAbaby.

When it comes to your child’s comfort, Chicco’s seat also has full padding with fabrics that are removable and washable. You can then adjust its backrest to 4 various positions, as well as its leg rest for proper support.

And although the size of its canopy is not far bigger than the Travelite, its canopy is more functional. It looks more sturdy, has peek-a-boo window and is removable. The usual cup holder, padded handles, basket and carry handle are also present. While keeping the stroller in place when parked is easily done with its toe-tap rear brakes.

The only major complaint I have, which is still isn’t improved with the new model, is its actual weight. The Chicco Liteway happens to be the heaviest in the group at 17.2 pounds.

Other than that, the Chicco Liteway makes the definition of the best umbrella stroller for an affordable price. It’s slightly lacking against UPPAbaby G-Luxe but is way more superior than Graco Travelite for not more than 100 bucks.

The Round-Up

Although there ain’t as many stroller options to choose from this year, the best umbrella strollers 2018 are enough to make your travel goals with baby into a reality! They work wonderful, just as they look fabulous.

The Graco Travelite is a dependable umbrella stroller that perfect for the budget-conscious parents. On the other hand, the UPPAbaby G-lite is travel buddy treasure. It’s lightweight, making it easy to travel with, plus it has all the necessary features of an umbrella stroller in a durable package. Lastly, the UPPAbaby G-luxe is the complete package that is sure to make the most out of your stroller investment.

Just because they make it as the best umbrella strollers 2018 doesn’t mean they’re only good for this year. I’m pretty sure, whichever stroller you decide to buy will surely make wonderful memories with you year after year. Happy strolling!

Best Umbrella Stroller that Reclines

After an impossibly long day’s work, we just can’t wait to get home so we can finally relax and unwind and just let go. Some of us like to take a long and relaxing bath, some collapse on the couch for a quick power nap, some people throw themselves into bed immediately as if they just crossed the finish line in a race. For me, I really like crashing on my ever so favorite armchair at home! It’s very comfortable and I feel like I could just stay there for hours while I gather my thoughts and my wits about me, but most of all, with a smartly placed lever on the side of the chair it reclines and transforms into something even more relaxing, and it becomes a battle to get out of the chair!

And this definitely rings true when it comes to parenting and taking care of our kids. If we have a constant need and desire for comfort, so do our kids!

When it comes to umbrella strollers, I can’t tell you all enough how important it is that your child is in the utmost comfort and security in his or her little umbrella stroller.

MacLaren is definitely no stranger in the field of umbrella strollers. This well known, tried and tested brand has been a family favorite and a baby store staple that has consistently proven their conviction to stay in the arena of umbrella strollers, regardless of the very many new brands of umbrella strollers that come with tons and tons of newfangled features to keep people interested.

The Reviews

Maclaren Twin Triumph Umbrella Stroller, Denim

Being a loving mom and a smart buyer, the comfort of my kids is always my priority. If they’re comfortable, the less chance they’ll cry and whine on early morning walks or during that much needed grocery shopping. And if I buy something, I make sure that most, if not everything, of what I really need should be present. And I found all these great qualities in a full-sized stroller yet compact package with the Maclaren Twin Triumph Stroller.

Its seats are wide and has room for your kids to grow. The padding of the seat is enough for a comfortable long sitting for the kids. It also has a multi-seat reclining positions which is a MUST to let your little ones take a nap and rest after a long day of activities. Unfortunately, this one cannot fully recline so it’s not ideal to use for newborns. But what’s cool about it is that it has a separate mechanism where you can adjust one seat without affecting the other. So let’s say one of your kid dozes off, you can recline his/her seat without the need to recline the other and just let your other child continue sightseeing. This way, both of your children can enjoy the trip. Now that’s convenient and a great design you can hardly find in any kind of stroller!

Children can be rough at times so a reliable and durable stroller is needed. And true enough, the Maclaren Twin Stroller did not fall short to this aspect. It can hold up to a combined weight of 110 pounds, which is actually quite rare to find among double umbrella strollers. This makes an excellent choice for families with big toddlers or preschoolers. Its fabrics is made of denim that will not be easy to wear and tear. And even if you have to go through many uneven road pavement and slight bumps, it’s still standing tall and proud carrying our children. Overall, maneuvering this thing is smooth and without a problem.

It’s also important to have a stroller that you can carry on your own in case you would need to bring your two kids on a trip by yourself! It’s not ideal to invest on the heavy ones so we don’t lose our energy easily by carrying them while catching up to our active children or having to carry your younger one as well. For a double umbrella stroller, its weight of 23.1 pounds is fine and manageable. It folds up nicely and compact too so it can fit on almost every door or closet with ease. Although, you may notice that folding this may feel stiff at first but it will loosen up once you’ve used it several times, which is not unusual for brand new items right? You can even close this with the canopies still attached so no need to hassle yourself and take time from having to remove and connect it back again when needed. Its rear wheels are lockable as well to keep the stroller still, so you will not have to worry about it suddenly moving away from and having to run after it.

If there’s one thing I felt it came short, I’m not a huge fan of its canopies because they’re not very large to provide full coverage but still, it’s better to have them than none at all. The canopies still manage to block and provide sufficient shade. But what sets its canopy apart from others is its water resistant feature which is a pretty fine design. And speaking of water, this package does come with a rain cover. It may become a bit harder to access the baskets when the seats are reclined but it has 2 nice cargo bags at the bottom that can provide awesome storage. Having a basket at the bottom can be really helpful so you won’t have to carry all your stuff while pushing this. Lastly, the height of its handles are sufficient for tall parents.

This has all the essential features you need in a stroller, no nonsense baggage. If you are a practical parent just like me, you know this is one of the best double umbrella strollers for you. The only thing that is going to stop you from buying it is probably its hefty price tag. But that’s the thing, getting a Maclaren is like getting an Apple device over other smart phones! Maclaren offers you a lot of handy features with the luxury and prestige feel to it to be envied by your other parent friends. And buying this on Amazon will be better because you can bring this home for about $375 plus free shipping, while normally you can find this around $400+ bucks. This stroller is the perfect deal and you will find more helpful reviews that can assure its quality. It got a high rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars. It’s lightweight, easy to use for travels, sturdy, can fit on almost every door and the kids and you are comfortable – it does its job excellently!

Delta LX Side by Side Tandem Umbrella Stroller

Delta has produced numerous twin strollers that do their job with flying colors. The Delta Children City Street Side by Side Strolleris also an eye-candy worth mentioning especially if you want similar to what I’m about to review but for an even lower price. For now I’ll be focusing on the Delta LX Side by Side Umbrella Stroller as this has a pretty awesome features for a more affordable price, plus this is tried and tested by lots of well-satisfied parents. It is a comfortable and hustle-free product for you to easily take care of your two toddlers while still making sure they are safe with the availability of the 5 point harness with shoulder pads to both seat.

Delta LX Side by Side Stroller has a light weight frame of 18.3 pounds that will not trouble you to bring and travel with. You also don’t have to worry about storing this since it can fit into any space or trunk and can even fit well into a standard 30” door wide. Not to mention, it’s really easy to fold and does not feel bulky at all when folded.

Each seat can carry up to 35 pounds of load, but it’s still sturdy enough to carry children even at ages of 2 to 4 years old and exceed the weight limit by 10 pounds is still not a problem. But of course, you still have to consider the weight of your children and not go way beyond the recommended limit just for safety precautions. Tailored with 360º swivel shock absorbing front wheels, it is just a breeze for the LX Side By Side Stroller to give your kids a smooth ride and lets you maneuver this with ease. It’s as if you are moving two toddlers as easy as handling one. The tires are made of hard plastics for endurance and durability.

The canopy provides your little ones some protection from sun rays; but to be honest, it’s not its best-selling point since it is not very big that can provide total sun block and it’s even a bit smaller than the Maclaren’s. The handles are also just average height so for parents that are more than 6 feet tall may start to feel a bit uncomfortable during long walks.

Nonetheless, this double stroller managed to bring convenience with its built-in two hanging storage bags to let you put your kids’ and even your own stuffs. But if you have lots of things to bring or bought, you might have to carry those since the hanging bags are not very big and it doesn’t have a basket at the bottom. You could hang some of your shopping bags on the handles though to keep your hands free from carrying anything too heavy. The stroller will not tip over easily especially with your toddlers sitting on it. The Delta LX Stroller also comes with a parent cup holder to conveniently let you put a bottled water or your cup of coffee during morning walks. Indeed, it was made not only for the comfort of our children but also bring convenience for moms and dads to feel cozy while travelling with their children, ‘coz we all know how energetic our children can be!

Now if you are worrying about the quality then worry no more because LX Stroller was made of durable sport color fabric and it is JPMA Certified. Aside from that, LX Stroller meets or even exceeds an ASTM Standards. ASTM or American Society for Testing and Materials is an association that tests a product. ASTM has a method that defined typically includes a concise description of an orderly procedure for determining a property or constituent of a material or a product. And not only that, it also conforms to all applicable CPSC Standards.

With all the quality insurance and features it can offer, the Delta LX Side by Side Stroller is no doubt a good catch. And all this great package is available for a reasonable price of $89.99 and free shipping on Amazon. It got a high satisfaction score of 4.4 out of 5 stars from over hundreds of parents’ experiences and you can take all their word for it!

Chicco Echo Twin Stroller

Chicco has been one of the major players in the field of children’s needs. They’ve provided consumers a considerable range of products: from basic developmental toys to high-tech educational gaming laptops. Somewhere in their line of children’s things are their reliable strollers. Adding to their line, an answer to parents who have more than one child to bring around the town is the Chicco Echo Twin Stroller, which, the name clearly states, caters to parents who have twins. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean only twins can use it. It’s a common problem for parents that they have kids who’re a year apart wherein the older child still requires a stroller, which is why the Chicco Echo Twin Stroller is also perfect for the job, being every bit as useful as its singular counterpart.

The Echo Twin Stroller is heaviest on the list for a weight of 34 pounds. It can be quite heavy for an umbrella stroller, but this is what you get from a high quality and durable stroller that assures you longevity of use. Despite its weight, it is still pretty compact and can fit into your car trunk without a hitch. It’s quite easy to fold and unfold which saves you time when you have too many things on your hands. The last thing you need is a stroller that just won’t open while you have a ton grocery bags on your hands.

The stroller’s embroidered seat pads and 5-Point safety harnesses make sure that your babies are comfortable and ready to roll, while the swiveling European wheel styling does not only give your stroller a sleeker appearance but also ensures mobility and ease of movement.

Although this does not fully recline flat, the seats have four reclining positions to suit your child’s preference and can recline to an almost full 180 degrees, I estimate around 140 to 160 degrees. While the leg rest can be adjusted to 2 positions as well to keep your kids comfortable while taking a nap. There is an adjustable and removable canopy as well, large enough to protect them from the elements.

Of course, the parents’ needs can never be overlooked, which is why the Chicco Echo Twin Stroller provides accessories that every parent will find incredibly useful. A nicely sized cup holder is perfect for holding a cup of coffee, or a bottle of water, or even the children’s bottle of formula. Also there’s a spacious storage basket which can be easily attached or removed from the stroller depending on the activity for the day. This will come in handy if you are planning on going shopping or just having a walk in the park. The storage basket will also save the parents from sore shoulders from carrying the baby’s things all day.

The Chicco Echo Twin Stroller is an economic answer to any parent’s stroller needs. It’s pretty compact, comfortable, and easy to use. The handles are also tall perfect for parents who are more than 6 ft. taller. It packs every bit of the Chicco Echo Stroller’s advantages and doubles it, making it absolutely great for families with more than one child. Parents will find that not only will their little ones be happy but them as well. Upon getting this, some assembly are required but it is going to be really easy to put together and ready to use for a day out with your cute little ones!

Costing less than $200, Chicco offers a bargain compared to the “heavyweights” which cost more than triple the price. Coming from a trusted brand, the Chicco Echo Twin Stroller is surely worth the investment for your children and one of the best double umbrella strollers. Chicco has been a parent’s best friend, pleasing families from all over the world and with this stroller around, you don’t have to worry because your toddlers are in good hands with its numerous features from significant convenience it brings to parents to the comfort and safety that our little kids need.

Mom’s Words of Advice…

You have to make sure that the stroller you’re going to buy is not just comfortable for the kids but also for you. Since we are looking after more than one of our kids, our attention is divided and we may get tired faster. So a double umbrella stroller will be your best companion in making a stroll hassle-free and more enjoyable with our adventurous kids around. Make sure to find a stroller that fits your height to avoid unnecessary aches and pains and promotes a comfortable space for our children. BUT! If you already own two strollers, you can actually buy stroller links or connectors to join them as one and work just like the double strollers. This makes wonders and not to mention, lets you save you some extra bucks!

The Reviews

Evenflo Minno Lightweight Stroller

Coming from an established brand such as Evenflo, makes your hundred bucks totally worthwhile! Evenflo has nearly 100 years of experience to back their expertise in baby products, including strollers. So owning an Evenflo stroller assures you that your baby is in good hands. Your $100 can get you far, even have some spare for your other baby essentials. All that thanks to Evenflo Minno Lightweight Stroller.

Despite its affordable price tag, the company certainly didn’t skimp on features. So what’s the deal with the Evenflo Minno Lightweight stroller? The Evenflo Minno gets all the basics covered plus a few more. You get the benefits of convenience, security and comfort in one. It has a padded 5-point safety harness, a well-cushioned, roomy seat for your baby and spacious storage basket at the bottom. It’s a convenient way to bring your bags and baby essentials without the hassle of carrying them all throughout the trip.

Here’s the thing though, Evenflo is not the only established brand on the list. We’ve got a stroller by Chicco for less than a hundred as well. So here comes the tricky part. You might wonde, “if they are both from trusted brand, which one should I get?”  Well, that’s the thing. In lots of points, the Evenflo Minno stroller offers more improved features than the Chicco in general, considering that it also worth slightly more than the former. The downside though of packing it with more punches, it has gotten heavier!

Still, Minno’s weight is still fairly light. But other than the weight issue, the Minno comes in stronger than the Chicco on the list. It can carry more weight than Chicco’s of up to 45 pounds. Minno also has thicker seat padding, bigger canopy, better folding mechanism and has 2 position foot rest. Nevertheless, you can’t easily cross out the Chicco on this list, especially when it’s a talk on superior light weight and compact fold. But I’ll get to that later.

The Evenflo Minno offers a dependable multi-position recline, with adjustable footrest to let your growing child doze off more comfortably during long walks. And what I love the most is its unique one-hand fold that can stand on its own. Though others find it folding with two hands much easier, the free standing fold is such a great feature to have. It helps keep your stroller clean since you don’t have to put it down on the floor while folded. Plus, it allows your hands free to hold your baby while you put your stuff away inside the car. You also won’t have to bend down every time you put this away. You can easily keep this or toss it in the trunk of car in between trips. Comfort and practicality doesn’t also fall short.

Minno’s dual front wheels has suspensions and locking swivels for better maneuverability. It has better resistance against bumpy rides and will be securely in place, just make sure that the wheels are locked. While it doesn’t have the largest canopy around, it still provide more coverage from direct sunlight for strollers within this price range. It even has an extended visor the added protection against the elements.

Additional features to look forward to include comfortable angled handles, convenient parent cup holder and durable easy to clean fabrics. The Evenflo Minno stroller is well-made with stylish designs to choose from. And it’s fully packed with functional features, making it as one of the best umbrella strollers under 100 dollars.

Overall, the Evenflo Minno Lightweight Stroller is decently packed with features for a reasonable price. They also have a website which you can easily access in case of a problem, their customer hotline can be found easily. It has a stellar rating of 4.8 out of 5 satisfaction score among parents. This is a great investment and value for your money because it has A LOT of features to offer and comes from a reputable brand.

The Chicco Capri Stroller

Chicco has always been one of those brands that is able to deliver great quality baby products that are also quite affordable. Which is why it’s become a brand that parents from everywhere have come to know and love. And it’s no surprise to have a Chicco as my pick to be the best umbrella stroller under $100. Their signature Capri Lightweight Stroller line has been able to create a lot of fans because of how easy it is to use and how lightweight it is. Now, people have even a lot more reasons to love the brand with the arrival of the Chicco Capri Lightweight Stroller! And with just Amazon alone, more than 300 parents have already bought it and have been greatly satisfied.

Costing under 80 dollars, the Chicco Capri Stroller is a wonderful steal for any parent who’s in the market for a super affordable and super user friendly umbrella stroller, not to mention a well-trusted brand, that could rival even the most expensive umbrella strollers out there. This minimalistic and classic umbrella stroller holds a candle to most mid-range to high end umbrella strollers with all the features that it has!

This lovely umbrella stroller is ultra lightweight, definitely following through on all of its predecessors in the Capri line. Designed all the way from Italy, the Capri sports a rugged, yet lightweight, anodized aluminum frame, which gives it a sleek look. In all of the Chicco Capri Lightweight Stroller’s 11 pounds, it promises to pack every bit of punch as any of the big boys of umbrella strollers in the market today.

The two position reclining seat is sure to give tons of comfort to your baby while the padded 5 point harness and front wheel suspension makes certain that he or she’s totally safe because the last thing you want is some randomly awful accident! Adding to your baby’s safety, there is also a super convenient adjustable and removable canopy protects your baby from the sun, wind, and cold. The large basket provides a lot of storage for all the things your baby needs.

Just few set backs, I feel its handle is not very high so for parents that are 5’8″ tall, this is not ideal for you. I would recommend you to check the Summer Infant 3D Lite Convenience Stroller since it’s also priced under hundred bucks and has higher handles or you can also read my feature on the best umbrella strollers for tall parents instead. The Capri can hold up to 40 pounds only. Nonetheless, this stroller is still a good catch for moms and dads, it has a quick release and easy to fold function, comes with a fashionable carry bag and shoulder carry strap which make this awesome umbrella stroller perfect for travelling as well as easy storage!

This stroller is in no doubt one of the best and provides value for your money. For less than $90, not only does it has a respectable rating of 4 out of 5 stars and fits your budget, but this is also one of the best lightweight umbrella strollers!

Best Umbrella Stroller For Infants, Your Baby’s First Buddy

Best Umbrella Strollers For Infants

Is bringing your newborn child out for quick trips problematic for you?  Every time we go out with our baby, we need to prepare and bring lots of baby essentials such as diapers, milk, extra clothing and more, that our hands are already full to carry our baby. It’s a good thing that we have a reliable stroller to help us. But like most things in life, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach, and with strollers. It’s been a constant challenge for parents to find that one perfect stroller for them. If we want a stroller to use with newborn babies, we need to buy the standard size strollers, which can be really heavy for us to bring outside or even carry in public transits.

However, we, moms, are advised not to lift heavy things after giving birth so we can have fast recovery from our delivery. It’s a good a thing and sweet of my husband to help me, but I can’t rely on him all the time like when he’s out for work, right? So I wanted to get an umbrella stroller because they are made for that very purpose: to be more mobile, easy to maneuver and travel-friendly.

Unfortunately, most umbrella strollers are only recommended to use with 6 months or older babies. They are not ideal to use with infants due to limited reclining and security features. So, for parents to buy all these beautiful, gorgeous, and incredibly functional strollers, not to mention expensive if the stroller is too heavy to use or unable to fit our small child, then they are pretty much useless! That’s just an investment you threw out the window and you definitely do not want that to happen.

When your baby is still in infancy, which is medically described as ages from birth up to 12 months, it is equally important to give your baby some exposure to sun, and while this is all good and well, most strollers surprisingly cannot accommodate children who are younger than three months. If you use an umbrella stroller that is not designed for infants, this could just lead to all sorts of trouble for your child. You may be comfortable with your state-of-the-art umbrella stroller, but you might just be putting your precious little baby in danger, and that’s definitely something we would not want happening. This is why I have put together a quick list of the best umbrella strollers for infants!

Overview of the Best Umbrella Strollers for Infants

Best Umbrella Strollers for Infants

There are only few umbrella strollers available to use with infants, and these strollers are the best in the market. I looked closely at their reclining capabilities as well as other features that are very helpful and convenient to use for parents and newborns.

Graco Breaze Click Connect Stroller

Graco Breaze Click Connect

Whenever I see the Graco Breaze Click Connect Stroller, my mind almost immediately goes to the thought that it looks exactly like what old classic baby strollers would be if they were made into a modern design. It’s quite surprising because the Graco Breaze appears like any normal umbrella stroller except for the fact that it bears all these beautiful classic curves that are both functional and elegant! Other than the shape of the stroller itself, the Graco Breaze Click Connect Umbrella Stroller also comes in a variety of cool and classy colorways such as Azalea, Chili Red, Harris, and Pierce!

But that’s enough about me gushing over how adorable this umbrella stroller is and let’s get right down to business! Not only is the Graco Breaze a joy to behold, it also has amazing features to boot! First, this is, by far, the easiest folding umbrella stroller around. With its super easy one-hand fold, stowing away the Graco Breaze is, well, a complete breeze! Just with this first feature, going out with your child becomes all the more easy and all the more fun! You can just simply hold your baby with one free hand and the other to initiate the one-handed fold and you don’t even have to worry because of the auto-lock when the stroller is folded.

The Click Connect feature comes incredibly handy as this umbrella stroller is completely compatible with any of Graco’s SnugRide Click Connect infant car seats that now quickly works like a travel system and really makes a solid mark to be one of the best umbrella strollers for infants. You get the best of both worlds. An infant car seat is a great and safe way to keep your baby secured inside the car as well. Then, instead of just carrying the car seat around, you can combine it with this stroller.

When your child eventually grows out the infant stage, you can readily use the Graco Breaze as an umbrella stroller, which is a very convenient and well-made investment. If you already own one, then you will really love the Click Connect feature of the Graco Breaze! To keep you at ease, you will immediately know that the car seat is completely fastened when you hear that satisfying click! This umbrella stroller is not the lightest around when compared to Maclaren Mark II or Chicco Capri stroller, but it’s still not too heavy to carry. It weighs about 17.5 pounds, still pretty handy to lift in and out of your car, making going out as easy and hassle-free as possible!

In terms of your baby’s comfort, the Graco Breaze has a multi-position reclining seat that even lies flat! So actually, even without the car seat, this is still the perfect choice to use with your infant child. This is also especially wonderful fit for different settings. Whether it’s time for the baby to explore the world around or take a nap in the umbrella stroller, the Breaze Click Connect is ready for your every mood!

Other than this, the stroller is beautifully crafted for maximum maneuverability with its lockable front-swivel wheels with suspension to keep the umbrella stroller from sliding all over the place. While the convertible 3 or 5 point harness is designed to grow with your child and keeping them completely secure and in place at the same time! The extra-large canopy, other than being a thing of total beauty, features a UPF or Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+ ensures that your child is safe from the ravages of too much sunlight. If you feel like this isn’t enough, there’s even an additional visor that pops out to your rescue!

Lastly, one of my favorite things about the Graco Breaze is that it grows with your baby. Aside from its convertible harness, it also features an adjustable calf support for different sizes of babies so they can ride in full comfort regardless of the stage of growth. You can definitely save a lot by investing in the Breaze Click Connect especially since it can accommodate a child up to a weight of 50 pounds!

All these useful and convertible packages are reasonably priced at around $125 to $170, that also comes with a free shipping deal from Amazon. You don’t have to hassle yourself going through malls while carrying your child since it’s just a click away and this will be quickly delivered straight to your home! It is also my best choice for 2015 and still a tough opponent to beat for best umbrella strollers 2016. Start making your errands and trips to malls easy-breezy” and a lot more enjoyable with your little angel.

The MacLaren Quest Stroller

A rare trait that the MacLaren Quest has is its features appropriate for kids straight from birth and in a sense “grow” along with your child because this stroller can hold up to 55 pounds! This stroller will stick with you and your kid for quite some time, which is a quality many parents have been keeping an eye out for because most umbrella strollers only accommodate children at least six months and beyond.

The seat can be reclined four positions with the one-hand recline to keep your baby comfortable while the stroller’s infant system has a cocooning head and foot barrier which will keep your child even more protected from dangerous elements. And since the Quest boasts its “grow” with your child feel, it also has an extendable leg rest with memory position, so you don’t have to keep on adjusting its leg rest every time you fold and unfold this thing.

The MacLaren Quest lineup has been a family favorite from all over the world for several years now. Your baby is safe and sound with the Quest’s 5 point harness and full recline capability. It is also convenient to use where you can adjust the seat from a full recline to an upright position single-handedly. The leg rest can be extended to accommodate your growing child.

The UV Protected window is a welcome addition because protection is always a top priority, but in this case, the baby can still see the outside world, minus the UV rays which can cause some serious damage. An extra storage pocket is located conveniently on the canopy and it’s also water resistant just in case it rains! It has a storage basket to put any extra stuff you might not want to hold all day and if you aren’t satisfied with the water resistant canopy, a rain cover is also included in the package when the weather suddenly goes bad to keep your baby safe from the downpour. Handy, right?

Its Reflective accents are there to keep your stroller illuminated whenever you decide to go out at night for a short stroll. This avoids accidents and is a surprising aesthetic addition to the stroller’s overall design and appearance! The carry strap makes the stroller easy to bring around when not in use, and the one-handed compact umbrella fold makes closing it absolutely hassle free! The high-performance aluminum chassis ensures a solid, quality build, but promises an incredibly lightweight frame of 12.6 pounds by using aluminum for the body.

Lastly, the removable washable seat fabric is a welcome perk since we all know the kind of mess that our kids can sometimes leave. Finally, the MacLaren Quest promises a mess-free and fuss-free cruising with a design you can trust.

Everything you really need is here, it’s a whole package that makes it one of the best umbrella strollers for infants. But with all its perks and features, it costs not more than $300. Nevertheless, if you want all the best features for your little angel that will last for a long time, then this is for you and it is totally worth the investment! If you find this interesting, you can also check the Maclaren Techno XT which can also be used with infants.

The Chicco Liteway Plus Stroller

With over 60 years of expertise on baby products, Chicco has now made itself a household name among parents. True enough, their products guarantee quality that lasts. Backed with long years of experience, you know you and your baby will be in good hands of Chicco. Hence, you can trust Chicco to be the first stroller to take care of your baby as he or she grows old, particularly the Chicco Liteway Plus!

Chicco Litway Plus is basically a bump up version of Chicco Liteway. If you don’t know, Chicco Liteway just happens to be one of the all-time best umbrella strollers around. However, Chicco Liteway is not advisable to use for newborns. So instead, you should be getting the Liteway Plus since you’re actually getting the same benefits from a Liteway, plus its ability to accommodate infants! But in order to do that, you also have to invest in a Keyfit infant car seat.

The Chicco Liteway Plus works similar to Graco Breaze wherein you can connect infant car seat to this stroller. It is crucial to travel with the right gears when traveling with newborns in order to ensure their safety. And an infant car seat is definitely on that must-have list. So while you may feel you have to pay an extra for the car seat, you’re actually saving up more in the long run with the Liteway Plus, since it’s already a carrier and stroller in one.

Once your infant grows up and needs an actual stroller, you can still use the Liteway Plus since it can hold a weight of up to 50 pounds. The Chicco Liteway Plus folds forward to accept Keyfit infant car seats, which just so happens to be rated as the top infant car seats around as well! Thus, you’re getting the best in both car seat and stroller territories.

Having the Liteway Plus, however, means getting a plus size, or in short, a heavier stroller. Chicco Liteway Plus isn’t exactly lightest anymore at 19 pounds. Nevertheless, the additional weight is in compensation for a more solid aluminum frame for durability. It also looks sleek and stylish with its fashion-forward design of colors, as well as modern tailoring, elliptical tubing, and high tech wheels.

Furthermore, it can still fold compactly inside your car’s trunk. Its automatic storage latch keeps it folded, while a carry handle helps you in transporting this around with ease. An easy fold-and-go mechanism makes the Chicco Liteway Plus easy to store in the trunk of your car! It highlights the infant’s total comfort and the parent’s convenience at the same time. With the easy one-hand adjustable reclining seat, canopy and leg support make the Chicco Liteway Plus Stroller travel-friendly.

The comfort of your baby is given a lot of importance by providing flexibility with your stroller. Firstly, the Liteway Plus offers to 5 different reclining positions, including one that is nearly flat. It reclines to a slightly elevated tilt to let little one sleep comfortably and safely with proper head support during your walks around the park or when you take quick trips to the supermarket. It also has an adjustable footrest to accommodate your growing child. The presence of a footrest will also help prevent your kid from getting leg cramps. While its adjustable and removable canopy keeps your sleeping baby warm, cozy and safe from the elements. It even has a peek-a-boo window to let you easily check on your baby. Its seat also has a cushion to add comfort to your child when sitting for long hours.

Maintenance won’t be an issue with this stroller. You can just throw the removable fabrics into the washing machine for cleaning. Just make sure to avoid using bleach and drip dry it. While unremovable fabrics and its metal or plastic parts can be spot cleaned with a soft damp cloth. Getting our kids sick is definitely a big NO-NO! So being able to clean your stroller regularly is a must for hygienic purposes and prevention of bacterial build-up.

The precision front foot action locking brakes keep your baby safe other than the solid 5-point safety harness. While the rear wheel suspension absorbs shocks to ensure a smooth ride even on uneven terrains. The storage basket is always present to offer a helping hand in carrying your bags.

The Chicco Liteway Plus Stroller has been around for years and has been doing well ever since. It’s not only the best umbrella strollers for infants but can also work just as good for toddlers. Add to that an affordable price tag makes Chicco Liteway Plus even more appealing!

The Round-Up

What sets these kinds of strollers apart is their ability to accommodate the tiny frame of little babies, which is why adjustability is key in finding the best umbrella strollers for infants. It’s absolutely crucial that the stroller is able to conform to children of different sizes so that when the baby grows, the stroller grows right along with it, in a sense. A big part of the best umbrella strollers for infants is its ability to recline or ability to connect to an infant car seat to work like a travel system. A good canopy also helps to keep their sensitive skin protected from the elements; from rainy to extra sunny days!

The good thing about umbrella stroller travel systems is its ability to accommodate infants up to their toddler years.

The Reviews

Maclaren Mark II Stroller

Maclaren undeniably carries one of the best brands I highly suggest to parents. Although they tend to be a bit pricier than the rest, I’m still in awe of them and find it reasonable as they really produce quality products. Their range of strollers is mostly packed with features and built with sturdy materials to last for a long time. Despite with many features their strollers have like the Quest, Triumph or Techno XT, they still managed to keep it a light of just about 12 to 14 pounds in weight. But now, Maclaren pushes its limit by producing the lightest model in their line-ups and pretty much among its competitors in the market. I present you the Maclaren Mark II Stroller!

If it’s just a matter of weight in competition, the Maclaren Mark Stroller would have already snatched the trophy and be dubbed as the best lightweight umbrella stroller. It only weighs about 7.3 pounds without the canopy and 7.5 pounds with it attached. However, to accommodate such weight, some features were compromised. Reclining feature was dropped as this only has one seat position. So if that’s what you’re after aside from weight, I’d better suggest that you move on to the next and read my review on UppaBaby G-lite. And while its canopy comes with an extendable sun visor, it doesn’t provide total sun coverage, I’d say it does just a pretty decent job.

But with those aside, I can list down a lot more reasons for you to love it.  First, its package includes a rain cover and carry strap so you can easily carry it over your shoulder when not in use. Secondly, its canopy has a mesh peek-a-boo window, a waterproof hood, and overall water-resistant seat. These allow you to check on your child time to time and protect him or her from slight rain pours. Aside from being water-resistant, it’s also engineered with a ripstop fabric so it won’t wear and tear easily.

I also like its idea for sewing a breathable mesh center panel in its seat. Just like any ordinary chairs, if we sit on it for too long, it gets hot. But with this brilliant design, we are assured that our little star would be comfortable and cool on their strollers, perfect for summer strolls. It is made with an innovative aircraft-grade aluminum hexagonal frame to keep it light yet strong enough to endure the rigors of outdoor activity and travel. It also has an anti-microbial handle, 5 point safety harness and easy-access basket.

Handling it is also a breeze. You can easily push it with one hand and with the 4-wheel suspension, it ensures a smooth ride over gravel, grass or even on rugged terrain. It is easy to fold and has a one-foot linked cable brake system. This lets you put a stop and easily lock the back wheels at the same time. You don’t have to go over each wheel just to put on brakes. It really has some pretty nifty features and couple it with a very lightweight quality make this a strong contender and very convenient for travels. And as always, Maclaren feels like it can grow along with your kid because of its durability and capacity to mostly hold weights of up to 55 pounds, including the Maclaren Mark II.

If you decide to purchase this, I can assure you that your money won’t go to waste. You can choose from 5 vibrant colors and it’s priced not more than $200 with free shipping from Amazon. I like to recommend buying it from Amazon because they have good customer support, they deliver fast and most of the time their products are priced competitively lower than the market. It also fared well among parents, receiving 4.4 stars out of 5, which I personally would also give it not lower than 4.5 stars.

I could say that this is the best choice if your baby is already in toddler years and no longer naps a lot so the reclining feature would no longer be your priority, and yet its weight makes it really convenient for you to bring it anywhere and make errands or shopping smooth and hassle-free. After all, as your kid grows and becomes heavier, I promise that you will definitely want a lighter stroller.

The UPPAbaby G-Lite Stroller

This is not the first time that we recognized the awesomeness of an UPPAbaby stroller. In fact, we’ve already included its G-Luxe lineup as one of our top choices for the best umbrella strollers. And since there’s another UppaBaby stroller that is definitely one of the lightest strollers as well, we simply could not overlook it! I’m talking about the UPPAbaby G-lite!

The G-Lite is a sleek and basic stroller that works for almost everyone! Its minimalistic no-nonsense design is sure to capture the practical parent’s eye. The UPPAbaby G-Lite Stroller, staying true to its trademark name, is known for being notoriously lightweight for only 11.2 pounds. You can say goodbye to sore arms and legs after a long stroll with your child.

And while most lightweight strollers tend to remove a reclining feature, the G-lite still has this feature. The G-lite has a zipper recline that allows it to recline the seat back to some extent. While it doesn’t recline very deep, it’s still pretty handy. Your kid can now nap more comfortably in such position. Add to that its mesh sling seat, it allows breathability that keeps your child cool even under extra hot days.

When the day’s done, the G-Lite has a hand-level trigger that conveniently folds the stroller. It’s so easy, you can do it with just one hand; no more of that foot pedal nonsense. It instantly becomes ready for storage, awaiting your next day out with the baby! Low-maintenance is a word we like to hear and the seats do just that. With its water and stain-resistant fabric, the seats require less than regular cleaning which is a definite plus! Maneuvering this stroller is so easy, you can do it with one hand and it just rolls away smoothly.

The G-Lite also sports a large canopy with an extendable UPF50+ sunshade to protect your child from any harmful elements. While a cup-holder conveniently sits beside the sunshade for you to put your drink or even the baby’s formula! And it also has a net basket at the bottom so you can have a space to put your other baby essentials or diaper bag. You don’t have to stress yourself from carrying your things. Now, these are totally convenient features to have. Traveling with your little angel will be such a breeze that you would want to bring your child again and again!

I highly recommend the G-lite, it is totally worth the investment and no doubt one of the best lightweight umbrella strollers. Not only is it lightweight, it also offers more features and durable construction that can last for years. You can even get a better bargain for this if you buy it from Amazon because they offer it at a low price of not more than 200 bucks with free shipping! If you are still unconvinced, you can read lots of rave reviews about it. Majority of parents who bought this are way happy and satisfied, giving it a stellar rating on Amazon.

The Chicco Capri Lightweight Stroller

The Chicco has been one of the oldest and leading brands for baby essentials. Even my mom told me she used Chicco products on me when I was young. So it is no surprise to see Chicco still reigning strong today.

For this category, Chicco introduces Capri Lightweight Stroller, which the company markets as ultra lightweight. It sports a lovely aluminum frame that weighs a surprising 11 pounds despite its heavy features! It works just as useful as any umbrella strollers but in a smaller, more lightweight package which mothers everywhere will surely love.

What sets the Capri apart is being able to actually recline! You can keep your baby comfortable with its 2-position reclining seat. While its 5-point padded safety harness ensures a safe and comfortable ride!

Although the size of its canopy isn’t its strongest point. It helps that it is adjustable so you can still provide shade against the direction of wind or sunlight. You can keep your child safe from the sun, wind, and cold. Because we all know our baby’s sensitive needs, the last thing you want is for your baby to have a cold. A large basket is also at your service to carry the baby’s things or even your groceries!

Lastly, the Capri folds and expands easily because of the convenient quick-release umbrella fold! Less hassle and incredibly space-saving, too! The stroller includes a carry bag and shoulder carry strap to make it easier to bring along your travels with your baby. The carry bag also helps protect the stroller from getting dirty easily.

The only thing I don’t like about the Capri is its low weight capacity. While most umbrella strollers nowadays can hold babies up to 50 pounds, this one can only hold up to 37 pounds. While using it above the weight limit won’t instantly break it. It will deteriorate faster and could expose your kid to getting hurt if you keep using it above the limit. Other than that, its features aren’t far different from the other two with a better recline capability. On top of it all, it costs the most affordable among the best lightweight umbrella strollers.

The Chicco Capri is a fully-featured package available for not more than $80. Now that is not only light in weight but is also light on your budget! More than 300 parents can already attest to its capability and reliability. They have been happy with their purchase, giving it a commendable score of 4.1 out of 5 stars rating.

The Round-Up

Traveling with a baby already requires you to bring lots of stuff for yourself and your baby’s essentials. So having the best lightweight umbrella strollers help take away the burden of having to carry additional weight. And yet, it can still work just as heavily as any standard strollers.

If we’re only competing for a stroller with the lightest weight, then Maclaren Mark II will no doubt wins the contest. While the UPPAbaby G-lite has a good balance between being light and functional. Lastly, if you want a capable lightweight stroller for the most affordable price, then you can place your bet with the Chicco Capri.

Mom’s Words of Advice…

The search for the best lightweight umbrella stroller can be quite challenging, especially since companies are constantly finding ways to meet the needs of parents and children everywhere in the world. Just remember, when you go off looking for the a lightweight umbrella stroller, remember to always consider both your needs and baby’s needs!

Best Umbrella Strollers for Tall Parents, Solution for a Sore and Hunch-Free Ride

Best Umbrella Stroller for Tall Parents

Imagine yourself strolling along the park or shopping in the mall while pushing a TINY umbrella stroller with your kid riding on it. Then you have to push that thing for SEVERAL HOURS! Now that’s definitely going to be uncomfortable and eventually, you’ll start feeling some back pains from hunching over a stroller for a long time. There are several stroller brands that are lower than the average ones, of course, those are the types we want to avoid even for a parent with average height. But there are also umbrella strollers that have excellent features but just come short in height for tall people. If that is the case, no matter how good they are, it would be too much a hassle for you to use.

Overview of the Best Umbrella Strollers for Tall Parents

Best Umbrella Strollers for Tall Parents

Having an umbrella stroller way shorter for your height will greatly affect your experience and make your outing with your baby less enjoyable. Trust me! You will be too stressed over thinking how much your back hurts from hunching over the handlebars for long period and how annoying it is from constantly kicking the rear axle and wheels while walking. So think how hard it will be even more for tall parents to use a short umbrella stroller AND to find a good stroller for their height. So for moms and dads that are quite tall, I highly recommend you to consider getting one of these best umbrella strollers for tall parents!

The Reviews

UppaBaby G-Luxe

UppaBaby has been a diligent brand of producing high-quality strollers and always looking to improve their line like the G-Series to provide latest needs of parents. The G-Luxe series was one of the best umbrella strollers in the market and adored by numerous parents, including me!

The G-series is available in 2 class, the G-lite and the G-luxe. Both are amazing strollers and been consistently topping the charts for umbrella strollers. The G-Lite only weighs 11.2 pounds so it is really light and makes traveling hassle-free. On the other hand, the G-Luxe has the full package. So it may be slightly heavier, but is still pretty light compared to most umbrella strollers for it only weighs a total of 16.3 pounds. Surely, even for a mom like me with 5’4” in height will not have a problem carrying this anywhere.

Now getting to the point, what made the UppaBaby G-Luxe the best umbrella strollers for tall parents are its awesome combination of features and high handles. Its handles go as high up to 43 inches from the ground which is really comfortable for most tall adults. You can comfortably place your hands on its handles and push this thing without having to hunch over. You won’t ever have to get sore backs from pushing low strollers when going out for long hours.

And of course, as a parent, we don’t want to only look for a stroller that is perfect for our height. We should also look into the features that bring great convenience when in use and make our kids feel comfortable and safe riding it as well.

It is suggested that you can only use this when your little angel is already 3 months of age or older because it cannot fully recline to flat stance. Nonetheless, it has multiple recline positions, which includes a nearly flat recline. Thus, it makes this still very comfortable for your toddlers. You can easily adjust its recline position with its one-hand lever. On a more positive note, this can hold up to a maximum limit of 55 pounds which is above the limit of common strollers. It can accommodate taller and heavier toddler with its roomy seat.

This has a sturdy construction of an aluminum frame and will not easily tip over. Plus, its seat is well-cushioned with fabrics that are stain and water-resistant. While the seat pad is also removable. This way, the stroller will not get dirty easily and it allows you to wash them, keeping your babies protected from contacting germs. These features help extend its life and let the stroller stick with you for a long time. Because of that, it adds even more value to your investment.

Like most full-sized pushchairs, the UppaBaby G-Luxe also comes with a 5 point harness & buckle, a roomy basket for an umbrella stroller, a cup holder for moms and dads and an adjustable footrest for your growing child. It is also quick and easy to fold and unfold with its hand level trigger. No foot action is needed, which I must say is very convenient! When folded, it locks into place with an auto lock and can even stand on its own while folded! Pretty cool right?

In addition, it has a handy carry strap that lets you fling this on your back to carry it around with ease. Clearly, it is as much convenient for us parent to operate this and comfortable to the little rider at the same time. Oh and have I also mentioned, this one has bigger wheels, sporting a high performance 5.5” wheels. The wheels are made of hard rubber that has a bit of tire tread for a smoother ride. The stroller also becomes less shaky thanks to its shock absorbing suspension. Hence, this stroller is really easy to steer and can perform well on smooth surfaces, playground, and grass. Even you hit little bumps on the road, your kid will be totally fine and still sits comfortably.

Although it may not be as good compared with an “all-terrain” stroller, it does a better job than most average umbrella strollers around. Oh, and not to mention, this one also has a one action brake for a quick and convenient way to keep your baby safe and in place. You don’t have to bend down just to put the brakes on for each wheel.

Its canopy is quite the charmer. At a first glance, the canopy is already noticeably huge! But you can further extend it with its UPF 50+ pop-out sun visor that would instantly add extra coverage! Talk about providing total sun protection. The UppaBaby G-Luxe is available in 3 colors to choose from. The UPPAbaby G-Luxe is a full feature package for a totally worthwhile investment of not more than $300 with free shipping. It has a stellar performance of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Needless to say, with the UppaBaby G-Luxe, you can bid farewell to sore backs and hello to great convenience and comfort for both you and your child!

No doubt its features are totally worth it but if you’re still holding back on buying this for budget reasons, you may also want to consider looking into the old UPPAbaby G-Luxe models for a lower price of same quality. However, this 2018 G-Luxe edition has a more robust profile, better canopy, and improved wheels.

Joovy New Groove Ultralight Umbrella Stroller

Not far from the UppaBaby G-Luxe, the Joovy Groove has hefty cool features to showcase as well. Some features are also pretty similar with the G-Luxe.

It can also hold up to a maximum weight limit of 55 pounds, has an adjustable 5 point harness, and an easy one-hand fold with an automatic lock feature. Its handles are at a comfortable height of 42 inches high from the ground, thus making this a strong candidate for tall parents to consider as well.

As the name implies, it is ultralight weighing only at 14 pounds. Even a pregnant mom testified she managed to lift this in and out of the car or house and just carry it anywhere. It may be light in weight but it’s definitely heavy on features. It also does not take up too much space in the car so it’s really perfect for moms going out for grocery shopping with your kids! Taking the stroller out will be such a breeze. You will love to bring your kids along as much as they want to go out with you, and of course, to buy new toys and snacks home. You know how kids are. 😉

The Joovy Groove really makes it hard even for me to choose between this or the UppaBaby G-Luxe. The competition for best umbrella strollers for tall parents is really neck and neck! Its canopy is not one to get left behind especially when it comes to size. Its canopy also has a UPF 50 sun protection, providing an effective shield from the sun to your child. The canopy also has a top view window to let your angel take a peek up or at you if the outside surroundings can be overwhelming for him or her.

This one has bigger wheels sized 7 inches with sealed bearing and suspensions for a smoother ride and better maneuverability. You can lock the front wheels so they don’t turn side to side. It is well made and has a stable construction. If you try to hang a medium sized diaper bag even though your child is not sitting on it, it will not tip over.

The Joovy keeps you in the groove by trying to keep you as hands-free as possible while traveling. It can hold your things for you due to its large storage capacity. It has a bottom basket, 2 cup holders, 2 in-seat pockets and zipper pocket at the back. Mind you, it has not one but 2 cup holders! One for you and another for your kid’s bottle. The storage basket has adequate space. It may not be the biggest in the market but it definitely has a good size for an umbrella stroller, you will surely love. You can fit your other baby essentials and bags to free yourself from stress on having to carry both heavy and other intricate items.

Lastly, the Joovy Groove Ultralight Stroller never came short in bringing superb comfort to my babies. The seat is well padded, deep and has a near flat recline. I’m also a fan of adjustable footrest because it brings more comfort to my son and not make him feel tired or cause some cramps from having his legs dangle awkwardly for a long time. That’s without to say that both the UppaBaby G-Luxe and Joovy Groove Ultralight have this feature.

Although the Joovy may still be growing in popularity compared to the G-Luxe, it is undeniably a strong contender. It is just as heavily-featured as the G-Luxe at a lighter package. It also comes in different colors to choose from and available with prices not going beyond $150, plus free shipping! It is a great value for your money. So do yourself a favor, buy this for an amazing offer from the comfort of your home.

Chicco Liteway Strollers

Chicco has always been one of the most well-known and trusted brands for baby essentials. These guys know what they’re doing and provide great solutions for babies and parents’ needs. In fact, most of the umbrella strollers Chicco produced are a perfect fit and designed with tall moms and dads in mind, making Chicco as the top choice in almost all reviews and suggestions from parents.

But their Chicco C6 Stroller comes a little short in height and is comfortable to use for people not more than 5’6” in height. It’s such a shame though because it is really an amazing lightweight stroller. It is the lightest and costs the least among its siblings and is also one of the best-selling Chicco models with over 250 positive reviews from happily satisfied parents. It only weighs 11 pounds and is easy to operate with its quick release fold. It also comes with a stroller carry bag and shoulder carry strap, which adds huge convenience for you to carry anywhere and store after use. And even with its lightweight feature, it is actually made of an anodized aluminum frame for sturdier and stronger construction. But overall, I would better recommend this for people with average height.

On the other hand, the Chicco Liteway Plus is their higher end stroller. It is pretty commendable as it is loaded with features and just right for tall moms and dads. But the Liteway Plus tends to be a little heavy with a weight of 22.5 pounds so if you’re looking for a lightweight stroller, this might not be ideal for you. There are pros and cons for each stroller that is why, out of all Chicco strollers, I prefer and really love the Liteway Stroller.

The Chicco Liteway has a good balance of functionality and design. It has all the features you need from a full-sized stroller and most importantly, the design is also amazing. Firstly, the Liteway definitely has tall, padded handles, measuring 41 inches high from the ground. While the Liteway may seem to be the shortest among the 3, the handle is still at a comfortable height for tall parents. So even while you push it, you will not end up kicking the rear wheels nor have a problem pushing it!

Chicco’s seat also has sufficient padding to keep your little one feel comfortable sitting on it. Its fabric is also removable and washable so you can easily maintain it clean and germ-free for your baby’s health. The Liteway also has a solid aluminum frame. To ensure stronger durability, it took a toll on the weight instead. Hence, Liteway becomes the heaviest on the list at 17.2 pounds. Nonetheless, the weight is still pretty manageable. And thanks to its carry handle, it helps to transport the Liteway to places much easier.

Aside from the heavier weight, what I don’t like about Liteway is its holding capacity. As most umbrella strollers work, the Chicco can only be used when your baby is at 6 months of age. But unfortunately, the Chicco Liteway can only hold a child’s weight up to 40 pounds against Joovy or UPPAbaby’s 55-pound weight limit. It’s a real bummer! But what makes Chicco’s features still amazing are due to their adjustability.

While the canopy of Chicco Liteway is not as big as G-Luxe or Joovy New Groove, it still does a great job in providing coverage. It is actually quite flexible since it’s removable and adjustable. You can adjust the position of the canopy to face the actual direction of the sun to provide shade more efficiently. In addition, the canopy also has a peek-a-boo window to help you easily check on your baby from time to time.

Since not all children have the same size, not all stroller can also fit comfortably to them. Imagine your little tot wearing an oversized shirt. That’s basically it. But with Liteway, you can adjust it to fit correctly to your baby’s utmost comfort. The Chicco Litway offers 4 positions to accommodate your growing child’s needs. Pair it with an adjustable leg rest and your kid can surely relax to the max!

Chicco Liteway also includes the usuals like a spacious bottom basket and parent cup holder. While its wheels are large with rear-wheel suspension and front locking swivels to ensure easy maneuverability and smooth ride. You can also bring the Liteway to a quick-stop with its toe-tap brake.

In all honesty, some of the features of Chicco Liteway seem to be running behind Joovy and UPPAbaby for the title of the best umbrella strollers for tall parents. But what makes the Liteway a very attractive choice is due to its affordable price. After all, it won’t even costs you a hundred bucks to own a Liteway, yet you get a quality stroller from a trusted brand, Chicco.

Watch the short clip to see its amazing features you will love ever since it got popular. This is definitely not just perfect for tall parents but perfect for anyone. It is also featured in my review for the all-time best umbrella strollers!

The Round-Up

Sometimes, when getting the best umbrella strollers for tall parents may slightly cost more than the average strollers in the market. Nonetheless, it should not matter because investing on a reliable one that is good for your height is far better than getting one that is really affordable; but at the expense of experiencing back pains and having a good time with your kid!

If you want a solid choice with high handle, you can never go wrong with an UPPAbaby G-luxe. While keeping a stroller lightweight is your priority, then you can feel the groove of Joovy New Groove. On the other hand, if the price is still the driving force in your buying decision, then Chicco Liteway is the solution without dropping quality.

Here are more stroller options that have high handles for you to choose from.

Mom’s Words of Advice:

If you happen to already have an umbrella stroller and getting a new one is out of question, then I suggest you could also consider getting a handle extension. You can save the extra expense and get yourself almost similar feel to these strollers that have high handles. It is easy to use, all you need to do is to attach them to the handles, and they will clip right on the stroller’s existing handles. Although, these extensions are usually not adjustable and may add some bulkiness  for storage.
