Lightweight Strollers

A lightweight stroller shouldn't sacrifice function for portability

The luxury of a plush double stroller or the shock absorption of a jogging stroller may be just what you're after most of the time, but chances are they won't be the best choices all of the time. Sometimes, a trip to the store or a little stroll down the street will be more enjoyable with a lightweight stroller, one that you don't have to wiggle out of your door or strategically squeeze into your trunk. Check out some of the best streamlined, lightweight strollers that offer the amenities you need without the extra bulk.

Lightweight Strollers that Offer Convenience and Style

  1. Chicco Ct0.6 Stroller. This ultra-portable stroller delivers excellent value and impressive performance. It goes beyond the necessities that many umbrella strollers offer (such as a big canopy and five-point harness) with its all-wheel suspension, feather-light weight and multi-position reclining seat. The carry-bag makes travelling with this sturdy stroller even more convenient and there's even a place to store your accessories.
  2. Maclaren Volo Lightweight Stroller. The comparatively high weight limit and low weight of this stroller is impressive. At only 9 pounds, the Maclaren Volo stroller is easy to steer and can be folded with one hand, making storage and travel a breeze. It can also accommodate up to 55 pounds, so it's bound to come in handy for several years. Out of all the small yet sturdy travel strollers available, this well-designed and affordable model is worth your consideration.
  3. Combi Flash Universal Car Seat Stroller Frame. While this isn't actually a complete stroller, it is certainly worth mentioning for those with infants. Combi Strollers are known for their solid construction and innovative design, and this version's sturdy yet lightweight frame can fit almost any infant car seat easily and securely. The stroller folds up swiftly and features a one-hand release to open it easily when you have your hands full. And even though it has a pretty basic design, you'll be happy to know that it also sports a spacious basket and a stroller pack with bottle pockets to keep everything within reach.
  4. Valco Baby Latitude Lightweight Stroller. While it's not quite as lightweight as other models, this stroller resembles the all-inclusive strollers that are often difficult to store and maneuver. In fact, this version is essentially a lightweight model of their regular single stroller, and it comes with accessories such as a rain cover and boot cover that you would expect from a larger, more inclusive model. The adjustable seat, adjustable handle and car seat adaptor are some of the best features of this lightweight stroller.
  5. Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller. If you're looking for a comfortable, easy-to-maneuver double stroller, look no further. This Baby Jogger stroller is ideal for any activity, from an afternoon jog to a walk through the market. It has a full-sized sunshade and, unlike the majority of lightweight double strollers, is incredibly easy to turn. Equipped with a harness in each comfy seat, sturdy wheels and a storage basket, you'll have everything you need to get around town easily and still be able to store it quickly and compactly.
