  • With a couple of exceptions, double umbrella strollers also lack the bells and whistles of full-size strollers, such as accessories, large canopies, large storage baskets, and all-terrain wheels, but they are awesome for travel – both car and airplane – and you never have to worry about whether it will fit in your trunk!

    The job of an umbrella stroller is to be lightweight and fold compactly. Double umbrella strollers are no different, except even the lightest ones are still quite heavy compared to their single counterparts.

  • If you can, try out an umbrella stroller before you buy it and make sure you can manage it easily. It should be comfortable for you as well as your child. Reviewers note, for instance, that the tall handles on The First Years strollers save them from having to bend over to push.

    In general a five-point harness, which includes shoulder straps, is preferable to a three-point harness, with straps only around the waist and between the legs. Even umbrella strollers that recline, such as the models above from The First Years, don’t lay all the way flat, so they aren’t suitable for newborns. staff and other experts recommend waiting until babies are about six months old before putting them in one of these lightweight strollers.

Read on to see which products impressed us, which disappointed, and which one stole the show.

    With LCD dashboards, smooth handling, and independent suspension, high-end strollers can sound like luxury cars. They can also be tough to fit in the back of a car, not to mention a public bus or train. After about six months or so with a full-featured travel system, many parents look to add a lightweight alternative to their arsenal of baby gear. Cue the umbrella stroller. Like its namesake, it has curved handles, collapses into a narrow column, and can be carried in one hand. What’s more, you can find well-reviewed models that cost no more than $60.

The Best Umbrella Strollers 2016 | Top Brands Reviewed

Expert Review: The latest addition to Maclaren's collection of lightweight strollers is the Globetrotter. Lightweight, sleek and maneuverable, the Globetrotter's best feature is its expansive canopy. The unique rectangle shape provides 19.5" of sun coverage -- we just wish there was a peekaboo window so we could check in on our shaded tot. The seat back is only 17" tall which is on the shorter side for umbrella strollers, and it offers odd support -- the center of the seat back has a sturdy support piece, but the sides are just fabric, making the support for the seat floppy and uneven. The seat has a multi-position recline that doesn't offer a very upright or a very reclined position. The underseat basket is nice and deep, but only accessible from the sides. Turning is not problem with the 4" wheels, but sidewalk bumps and cracks can be. The Globetrotter does fold up easily and compactly and can be carried with the shoulder strap.
