Maclaren Globetrotter – Lightest Reclining Bugg

Appropriately named, the Maclaren Globetrotter Buggy is an ideal umbrella stroller for a travelling family or any family that is always on the go. The lightest reclining buggy in the Maclaren family but really only one level above the Volo. It is comfortable for baby and stylish for parents while still remaining practical.

The Globetrotter is the most lightweight stroller with the most recline of all other Maclaren strollers. As with most lightweight umbrella strollers, this one is not meant for bumpy roads (not comfy and does not handle well) and it may not be comfortable for an extended period of time. It is less expensive ($160) than some of the other Maclaren umbrella strollers (Triumph, Techno, Quest) but it does a great job of offering all the features you really need in an umbrella stroller. The canopy is even larger than others while the basket is small like most. The Globetrotter is a great choice for families who are always on the go and need something compact and lightweight.
