This well-known single to double stroller has been around since 2006 and is known for its versatility, style, and quality.
One of the VISTA V2’s newest competitors is the Veer Switchback Switch&Roll Complete Stroller. Veer, well-known for their Cruiser wagons, entered the stroller game with a bang in 2022. The Switch&Roll has similar features of the VISTA V2, with some unique additions such as turnable rear shocks and a versatile stroller seat (the Switchback) that has energy absorbing features in the seat itself AND has six different uses for all your family’s adventures!
Deciding between the two? We'll compare the benefits and drawbacks of each stroller in this in-depth UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and Veer Switchback Switch&Roll comparison.
UPPAbaby VISTA V2
The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 makes it easy to stroll with your family, no matter where you're heading or who's along for the ride. Starting as a single stroller, the VISTA V2 can accommodate a second seat, car seat or bassinet for siblings or twins.
The VISTA V2 folds compactly in one step and stands when folded, helping parents comfortably load it into the car. The stroller becomes a convenient travel system with the addition of the UPPAbaby MESA V2 or MESA Max car seat, which clicks on and off without adapters. An extra-large storage basket, a wide variety of accessories and an included overnight-ready bassinet are among the features that make the VISTA V2 a hit with growing families.
UPPAbaby released the current VISTA V2 in 2020, making changes like improving the suspension, introducing new colors, adding a no-rethread harness and enlarging the seat for taller toddlers.
Veer Switchback Switch&Roll
Using the innovative Veer Switchback seat, the Switch&Roll is a versatile stroller that can tackle any terrain - and even convert from single to double as your family grows or use for twins from the start. It’s rugged design, never-flat wheels, and adjustable suspension make it a great option for outdoor adventuring type families!
The Switchback Switch&Roll uses the innovative Switchback seat. This seat can become a booster seat when out and about, a camping chair, plus it fits on Veer’s &Jog stroller frame, as well as both of their Cruiser wagons. You can even attach it to the back of your bike! The flexibility of this system is very unique! You can customize your Switch&Roll with different color kits as well.

UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Veer Switchback Switch&Roll Weight Limit
Both the VISTA V2 and the Switchback Switch&Roll main top seats hold 50 pounds. They are practically the same size as well.
However, the second bottom seat, known as the RumbleSeat on the VISTA V2, is a smaller copy of the Toddler Seat (top seat) and has no adjustable calf support. It has a 35 pound weight limit, which is a drawback for parents who want their baby to sit in the upper position but have a toddler who's too big for the lower position.
The Veer Switchback Switch&Roll uses the same exact Switchback seat on the lower position, however, the weight limit changes to 40 pounds when used on the bottom position. This is due to the design of the stroller.
Both UPPAbaby and Veer suggest putting the heavier child on top as the stroller is easier to push and maneuver this way.
UPPAbaby VISTA Weight Capacity
- Toddler seat: 50 pounds
- RumbleSeat: 35 pounds
Veer Switchback Switch&Roll
- Switchback Top Seat: 50 pounds
- Switchback Bottom Seat: 40 pounds
UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Veer Switchback Switch&Roll Configurations
The VISTA V2 and Switch&Roll offer similar configurations for siblings. On both strollers, both seats are reversible, allowing the child to face you or face forward. Both strollers also work with compatible car seats and bassinets. For twins, both strollers take two infant car seats, however, only the VISTA V2 holds two bassinets.
The Veer Switch&Roll allows for one configuration not possible with the VISTA V2: the bassinet on the upper position with second seat on the lower position facing in. With the VISTA V2, the bassinet can't fit on the upper position when the stroller is a double, so the bassinet can only be used on the lower position.
The VISTA V2 requires the purchase of the upper and/or lower adapters to complete double configurations involving a car seat or bassinet.
With the Switch&Roll, you will need the Veer Double Seat Adapter Kit to make your Veer stroller into a double. One set of adapters attaches a second Switchback seat, infant car seat or bassinet to the lower position, while the other set raises the top seat higher to create more space for double configurations.

UPPAbaby VISTA V2 vs. Veer Switchback Switch&Roll Pros and Cons
So which stroller is better: the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 or the Veer Switchback Switch&Roll? Only you can choose the stroller that's best for your family, but here are the benefits and drawbacks we see.
UPPAbaby VISTA V2
- Includes an overnight sleep approved bassinet with purchase
- Compatible without an adapter with the UPPAbaby MESA V2 and MESA Max infant car seat
- Can become a triple with the addition of the PiggyBack accessory for an older child
- Adjustable canopy slides up the frame to allow for more head room
- Larger canopy coverage
- 35-pound weight limit makes lower RumbleSeat too small for some toddlers
- In double mode, bassinet can only fit on the lower position of the stroller
Veer Switchback Switch&Roll
- Adjustable suspension on the frame itself much like a mountain bike
- Suspension on the Switchback seat itself as well
- Switchback seat has 6 different uses - can become a feeding booster seat out of the box, can attach to the &Jog stroller frame, can attach to a bike, can become a camping chair, and can attach to a Cruiser wagon
- In double mode, bassinet can fit on the top position of the stroller when the second seat parent faces
- Accommodates more weight than the VISTA V2, holding 50 pounds on the top and 40 pounds on the bottom - seats are identical sizes
- Cost $100 less than the VISTA V2 (no bassinet included, but may not be needed for if purchasing after newborn phase)
- Hose cleanable
- Does not include a bassinet
- Lacks stroller board accessory for older child
- Canopy is smaller and doesn’t offer as much coverage
Both the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 and Veer Switchback Switch&Roll are high-quality, versatile strollers that will grow with your family. They are very similar looking, but the Veer is more rugged than the UPPAbaby, and may be a great option for outdoor enthusiasts.
Both strollers offer top-notch quality in materials, and are priced similarly, though the VISTA V2 includes a bassinet that is overnight sleep approved and can be used from birth. They both fold the same way - easily in one-step - and stand when folded.
The biggest downside of the the VISTA V2? The 35-pound weight limit on the lower smaller sized RumbleSeat means the older child must ride on top (if over 35 pounds), which isn't preferable for many families. The Veer's second seat is the same exact seat as the top seat, although it is only approved for 40 pounds when used on the bottom.
However, no matter what stroller you choose, you're investing in a beautiful, well-made stroller that will last your family for many, many years!
