UPPAbaby G-Lite Stroller is a light umbrella stroller and it is the lightest model in UPPAbaby collection. It weights only 10.7 pounds (4.8 kg) and it can handle a maximum weight of 55 pounds (25 kg). This stroller dimensions are 44.3“ x 11“ x 11“ when unfolded and it costs 159$-179$ (depends on which color you choose) on Amazon and around 210$ on Ebay which is very reasonable price for stroller with so many good features and high quality. What I like the most on this stroller is removable seat and water resistant fabric which makes cleaning the stroller very easy. Let’s dive into what the key features are.
1. Ultralight Weight
The stroller weights only 10.7 pounds (4.8 kg) which is the most lightweight stroller I have ever seen. It is perfect for traveling and for parents who live upstairs.
2. Removable Canopy
The stroller has nice size canopy with an extendable SPF 50+ sunshade that provides excellent sun protection for your child, especially from harmful UV rays. I like that the canopy is removable and height adjustable which is quite unique ( I have not seen umbrella stroller with removable and height adjustable canopy yet). Just amazing!!
3. Removable Cup Holder
Cup holder is included with the stroller purchase and it can hold regular size water bottle or a coffee mug. I like that cup holder is removable so I can remove it when I do not need it.
4. Double Ergonomic Handles
Handles are located 42” from the ground which is great for taller parents. They are covered with foam which makes grip very convenient and protect your hands from getting blisters.
5. Spacious Seat
The seat is 13.5” wide and it can fit a very tall child. It is always nice to have more space in the stroller which ensure better comfort for your baby. The seat is made of meshed material for good air circulation during a hot summer day. UPPAbaby G-Lite stroller does not have a reclining seat, so your baby must be a minimum of six months old to ride.
6. Stain and Water Resistant Fabric
This is definitely the best feature on this stroller. We all have to deal with spilled drinks or left crumbs all over the seat (our messy little angels). Thankfully, all you need to do is to remove the seat pad and wash it in washing machine.
7. Removable Seat Pad
This great feature helps you a lot with cleaning after your baby made a mess in the stroller. Here is the video which shows you how to remove seat pad:
8. 5- point Harness
This stroller has 5- point harness with center release button that can be adjusted to three different positions.
9. Nice Large Basket
For such a lightweight stroller, UPPAbaby G-Lite stroller has very nice and large basket. I am always carrying a lot of items in the walk so the large basket is important for me. There is enough space to store big diaper bag, blankets and other essentials.
The stroller rolls on 4 hard rubber double wheels and front wheels are swivel.
11. Lockable Front Wheels
Lockable front wheels allow you to easily push this stroller through uneven surfaces such as grass and help you with stability of the ride.
12. All Wheels Suspension
This feature will help to smooth out the bumps and make the ride a little smoother. While most other umbrella strollers do not have suspension or have it only on back wheels, this stroller has it on all.
13. Parking Brakes
The stroller has two individual parking brakes on both rear wheels. You need to step on both of them to lock the wheels.
14. Easy Fold
Folding is super easy, but you need two hands. All you need to do is to bring the canopy back and pull on two levers located on both sides of the handle bar and fold it forward. I like that once folded, the stroller is self-standing which is convenient especially when I am traveling by public transportation.
15. Shoulder Strap
As I mentioned before, the stroller weights only 10.7 pounds (4.8 kg) and shoulder strap makes carrying it around even more practical.
1. No Peek-a-boo Window
I really like to have peek-a-boo window on my stroller so that I can watch what does my baby do during the ride.
2. Seat Cannot be Reclined
As I mentioned before, the sat can not be reclined. This is not a deal breaker, but it would be nice to have recline-able seat with this stroller.
There are 2 available colors: Jake (black) and Denny (Red)
Video Review (Baby Gizmo):
What other parents say about this stroller:
„This stroller is awesome! It’s lighter than my diaper bag, super easy open/close, and has a built in shoulder strap. Super sturdy and stable. My son used to turn into a little sweatball anytime I put him in a stroller, the mesh of this one keeps him nice & comfy. The storage under it is sufficient, but I got an extra little mesh organizer for the back to carry the rain cover & other goodies. It even has a cup holder. I can’t say enough good things about this stroller. Abosolutely worth the price.“
„Great umbrella stroller. So lightweight. Pushes well and sturdy. Easy to fold up and carry with backpack straps. Great to travel with. Larger basket than expected for an umbrella stroller and has cupholder. We have the jade color which is really pretty!“
„I purchased this for a trip to Disney World with my 6 year old (yes, 6 years old – 55 lbs) to move quickly and comfortably through the parks.
This stroller did not disappoint. It was everything it was described to be; sturdy, easy to move, open and close. The sun shade was large and had good coverage. The mesh seat back was a nice touch for ventilation on those hot days. I would recommend this item!“
