t’s the MacBook Air of umbrella strollers: nice design, stands when folded, easy to collapse, and has a superb sunshade The G-Lite includes a mesh sling seat for better breathability and removable fabric for easy cleaning. Yes, UPPABaby umbrella strollers are pricier than most others, but they’re built to last.

Uppababy GLITE Stroller, Denny (red/Silver)
Intelligent Design Super lightweight intuitive-to-use umbrella stroller makes parents lives easy. Assembly is a snap, instructions are clear, and the features of this stroller make perfect sense in a day of a life of a baby. A full coverage UPF canopy, and very easy to unfold/fold features make this stroller versatile and a cinch to use. With a weight of 12# with the canopy and cup holder, it’s easy to carry, and comes with a convenient shoulder strap. Once closed, it can perch on one hinge and takes up very little space folded (19.5 x32 x42 open /11.5x7.5.4x42 folded). The stroller is rated from 6 months of age to 55 pounds.
Comes in 2 colors: black and red. Workmanship is solid – seams well sewn, handles and hardware, along with wheels and seat cushion are executed well. Just looking at this stroller, it looks solidly built, despite the fact the seat back is made of mesh. Fabrics are stain and water resistant, and fabrics are removable and machine washable.
Lockable front wheels make navigating snowy, icy, cobbled or rough terrain a snap. When unlocked, the front wheels allow for a very nimble turning radius to get around tight corners. Brake is easy to set. Handles are padded with dense foam and angled such that pushing is easy, at any height. Harness is 5 point. The only downsides to the stroller are the limited storage space beneath the seat and the fact that the canopy must be removed for folding. The mesh back allows for great ventilation, especially in the warm months. What it doesn’t have is an adjustable leg rest, so mid sized tots may struggle with comfort at the bended knee
At $159.99 for the red (and $179.99 for the black) this stroller is a great deal – but doesn’t have the cushy comfort of the G-Luxe, nor the recline feature. From a purely functional standpoint, this is a short-haul stroller – a child might become a little uncomfortable if sitting in this stroller for several hours, especially if sleepy.
Cup holder and UPF canopy, as well as seat pad included.
Rain Shield is extra at $19.99 as is the Travel Bag at $59.99. Footmuffs run $99.99-129.99, and a Stroller Blankie $34.99

Bob, Owner and Product Development Bob has spent more than a few years inventing and developing products for companies such as Ford, Reebok, The First Years and Safety First. Although he suffered some bangs and bruises along the way, we believe that his experience gives each stroller a well- rounded and robust spirit.
