What's the best lightweight stroller? The answer might depend on your definition of "light."
Umbrella strollers tend to be the lightest type of stroller, with many weighing around 10 to 15 pounds.
But their convenience comes with drawbacks for everyday use: Umbrella strollers can't be used with a newborn, and they tend to lack important features like a recline option, car seat compatibility, and sturdy wheels. Plus, as you can't reduce the length of an umbrella stroller, they won't save you much room in your trunk.
If you're looking for the best lightweight travel stroller, you might consider one that's a few pounds heavier but folds more compactly—even small enough to qualify as an airplane carry-on. Strollers that fit in the overhead compartment bin include the Silver Cross Jet and Babyzen YOYO, both in the 13-pound range.
Still, travel strollers may not have all the features you're looking for in an everyday stroller, like a reversible seat that allows the baby to face you, ample storage space, and sturdier wheels with suspension for smoother maneuverability. Strollers like the Nuna TRIV and Bugaboo Bee6 offer all of those features while weighing around 20 pounds—still 5 to 10 pounds less than the average everyday stroller.
