Umbrella Stroller- recommendations?
« on: July 21, 2013, 08:07:02 PM »
Any fellow DDFers have recommendations for their favorite umbrella stroller? My wife and I have checked out a few and are having a hard time choosing.

TIA!

I'm also in the market for a good travel stroller for an 11 month old.
I think the price of the UB G-Luxe is a little steep for an Umbrella..

I really like my maclaren techno xlr. I keep it in the car. It is great for traveling and it has an amazing sunshade that comes really far down.

My wife is specifically looking for an Umbrella stroller that reclines.

I feel like there's no point if it doesn't recline. What does a sleeping kid do?

Can't agree anymore
Surprisingly, a bunch of the ones we checked out at BBB didn't recline!

The only one I am really considering is the G-Luxe, but I can't spend so much $..

Any double umbrella owners out there care to chime in? I'm going to Boston for a few days and I'm trying to figure out if I should try to borrow one. I have a City Elite Double that's fantastic to push, but monstrously large and heavy, and a Graco inline double that takes the car seat and is not much better. I'm thinking a double umbrella is the way to go, but I'm worried we'll be using it the whole time and it won't push as easily as the others.

Gluxe has great sun shade, reclines, folds nicely, and has great customer service.  Great extra feature is the extra padding that comes out and washes real nicely.  Leave mine in car and use all the time.

Thanks all for the recommendations!
We went with the GLuxe (Jake- Black) and are happy with it so far!
We bought it directly from BuyBuyBaby for $229.  If you do happen to know of a pricematch please let me know.
I searched online but found most places selling the Gluxe for $229.

We got the our gluxe for 179 including free shipping( with the newer version don't know how much it will be...)

It's a great stroller but the brakes are a bit annoying when you go down and up stairs
