The 2013 UppaBaby G-Luxe Stroller

The 2013 UppaBaby G-Luxe is only 13.4 lbs, the lightest umbrella stroller ever. Different than the 2012 model, the 2013 G-Luxe is more full-featured than your standard umbrella stroller.

The G-Luxe differs from the G-Lite in only the recline option. The G-Luxe reclines to an almost flat recline, 120 degrees. The handles are 42″, which is higher than most umbrella strollers, which is fantastic for taller adults but even ideal for not so tall adults. The basket is roomy for an umbrella stroller, not huge overall but large enough.

The biggest problem with the UppaBaby G-Luxe is the price – $220 for an full-featured umbrella stroller is steep. UppaBaby is a high end brand that makes high quality, safe, durable baby gear so the price makes it worth it, if you can stomach paying that price for a stroller.
