Strollers That Fit in an Overhead Compartment Bin

Strollers That Fit in an Overhead Compartment Bin

18 products

    While plenty of strollers are small and lightweight for travel, only a few on the market are actually compact enough to fit into an airplane's overhead compartment bin.

    Most umbrella strollers still require checking or gate-checking, leaving them vulnerable to getting dirty—or getting tossed (and broken) on the jetway.

    Stroller policies vary by airline, and some airlines don't allow strollers as carry-on items regardless of their size. Be sure to check your airline's policy before traveling.

    Check out eight of the best travel strollers from Babyzen, Bugaboo, Doona, UPPAbaby and more in the video below, and read on to learn about strollers compact enough to fit in an overhead.
