The UPPAbaby G-LITE is the lighter version of the G-LUXE stroller. It is so light that at 11 pounds, you can carry this umbrella stroller over your shoulder (the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles recommends no more than an 8-12 pound bookbag for an 80-pound student, so you can imagine how easy this stroller is to carry around for an adult).
For parents who need a quick, on-the-go solution at a very affordable price point, trading some of the over-abundant, luxury frills for convenience just makes total sense. While there’s not a seat recline, travel-system options, and premium leathers on the G-LITE, it’s nonetheless a perfect stroller for a quick outing. For parents who have a more luxury stroller option for major outings, such as a day at Disneyland, it would not be cost effective to dive into an additional high-end, every-option-included umbrella stroller to serve as a second stroller for simple trips out and about to the store. In that sense, between the great price and UPPAbaby-quality offerings, the G-LITE holds a serious place in many parent’s baby gear lineups.
UPPAbaby products meet the most stringent industry standards required by the Juvenile Product Manufacturing Association (JPMA) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
With UPPAbaby’s quality and eye for design, a stroller at this price offering is still worlds above other baby gear companies’ similar offerings (many times at a higher price). It’s a great way to own a piece of the UPPAbaby world without diving into more expensive options, and this stroller will likely (and quickly) become your go-to stroller if you have multiple stroller options at home.
The G-LITE comes with a five-point harness, removable seat pad and washable fabrics, and it’s ready to go right out of the box (so perfect to order and send to a hotel room). It has an all-mesh seat back and sun canopy, so this stroller is ideal for warmer temperatures. The lower price point on the G-LITE is not an indication of lower quality, as it still is one of UPPAbaby’s proudest endeavors.
If you already are using an UPPAbaby or other brand’s full-size stroller and need something that is quick and easy to take on the go, this 11-pound wonder will more than fulfill your needs.
