Before I even start writing about best umbrella stroller, let me begin by clearing out some doubts. Have any of you wondered the difference between an umbrella stroller and lightweight stroller? For me the difference was a no brainier but then after careful research I found out the major differences between the two.

The easy way to spot an best umbrella stroller is to look at its handle. The handle is curved and shaped like an umbrella. Umbrella strollers usually fold vertically and lightweight fold flat horizontally.

Now comes the catch, the stroller market and online shopping websites at times do not follow these differences and more often you will find a particular stroller featuring in both best lightweight stroller  and best umbrella stroller category. So, in the end it’s up to you what kind of stroller do you prefer and its weight.

Best Umbrella strollers are one of the most sought after strollers in the market. I personally have a weakness for them because I usually venture out and like to carry light. For travelling and everyday chores an umbrella stroller is a life saver.

I usually have my hands full with two kids therefore an umbrella stroller becomes easier to carry. Parents who usually opt for an best umbrella stroller are those who travel a lot and also need to go out on a daily basis for some chore.

They are not only light but are also extremely useful in maneuvering through crowded places and supermarkets. A lightweight stroller though has lesser features than a normal stroller; it serves it purpose quite well. Lightweight strollers are sturdy and compact. They can be used for many years just like normal strollers. They do come with the basic features of normal strollers.

Well the options for best umbrella stroller are quite large and double umbrella stroller are even bigger. You will find thousands to choose from. So, especially for first time parents how do you go about it?

Well I have chalked a list of best umbrella stroller criteria that you should go through before you even look at an umbrella stroller.

Read more to find out what vital points you have to keep in mind before you have a look at best umbrella strollers.

Before You Buy an Best Umbrella Stroller

  • Need

You need to ask yourself why you need an best umbrella stroller and what your purpose is. As I mentioned earlier umbrella strollers are perfect for parents who are usually on the go. So, if you are one of those parents who are constantly on the move then an umbrella stroller is a necessity.

Double umbrella stroller is for those who got twins on their side 🙂

If you have a medical problem that inhibits you from lifting heavy things then umbrella strollers should come to your rescue. Lastly if you simply prefer lightweight strollers then do buy one to please yourself.

 

  • Budget

Most umbrella strollers are usually budget strollers. But if you are looking for a very good lightweight stroller then be ready to spend a few extra bucks. Decide on a range that you can keep aside for buying the stroller. This is the first step towards narrowing down your choice from thousands of options.

  • Portable

How portable do you want the stroller to be? Do you travel regularly and need a lightweight and compact stroller? Then best umbrella strollers are perfect for you. Moreover if you are frequent plane traveler then you need to look if the stroller can be carried in the plane. So all these factors need to be considered where portability is concerned.

 

  • Till when are you planning to use the stroller

Lightweight strollers of good quality usually last a long time. There are some strollers that might cost you quite less but are less durable. Now the choice is yours in which one you would like to invest.

Lastly if you plan to use the stroller for a long time then as a parent I suggest please invest in a good quality stroller. You will not regret it when the stroller goes through innumerable rides, travels, spilt milk and the list is endless.

 

  • Features

Best Umbrella strollers come in the lightweight category by using lightweight and durable frame material and seat material. However, usually several features and accessories are purposely left out so that the stroller becomes lightweight.

Don’t worry the basic safety and storage accessories are present in these strollers. Now the question is are you ready to compromise on a few accessories when you plan to buy an umbrella stroller.

 

  • Weight

Best Umbrella strollers are definitely lighter as compared to normal strollers. However all umbrella stroller do not have the same weight nor the same accessories. So, what according to you is the perfect weight for an umbrella stroller? Umbrella single strollers start from as light as 10 pounds but if you have twins then go for double umbrella stroller.

So, I suggest keeping this checklist (best umbrella stroller) in front of you before you even start researching umbrella strollers. Below I have listed 10 strollers which I feel are among the best umbrella strollers. The listing is based on the above criteria and is not in any particular order.
