  • Lightweight stroller basics

    What you need to know

    While full-size strollers, travel systems, and jogging strollers all have their time and place, parents often turn to lightweight strollers for an easy and portable option. Lightweight strollers are usually less expensive than full-size strollers but often have similar features and functionality. Gone are the days of the bare-bones "umbrella stroller" – these days a lightweight stroller may be robust enough to serve as your everyday go-to. Plus, these strollers are compact enough to throw in the trunk or stash in an overhead bin.

    The following lightweight strollers are the five most recommended by our site parents, along with two chosen by our site editors. All are good choices in terms of features, looks, and ease of use ­– and they're the our site Love It winners for the best 2020 lightweight strollers.

  • Graco NimbleLite Stroller

    Our site Parents' Pick

    At less than 15 pounds, the NimbleLite is a lightweight stroller that has all the features of a full-size stroller, including parent and child trays with cup holders, one-step folding, a large storage basket, and a full sun canopy. A huge advantage of this stroller is that it can be used as a travel system with all Graco infant car seats. That means you'll likely be able to use it from birth until your child is in preschool.

    Heads up

    The seat doesn't fully recline, and some parents say that it's not super comfy for longer rides.

    Parents say

    "This stroller is really lightweight, can hold an infant car seat, and has straps for when kids are older. The brakes really work, too."

    "I'm a first-time mom and I decided on the Graco NimbleLite travel system. My big thing was I didn't want a heavy stroller. This stroller is less than 15 pounds, and most are 20 to 25."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 12 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions: 21 x 34.6 x 42.2 inches
    • Can hold up to 50 pounds

    Available at Amazon starting at $64.79

  • Bugaboo Ant Baby Stroller

    Our site Parents' Pick

    Bugaboo is known for sleek strollers that handle like a dream thanks to their all-wheel suspension. Plus the Ant is incredibly compact. When it's folded down, you can pull the Ant like a wheeled carry-on and easily pop it into an overhead bin. The Ant weighs just over 15 pounds, but it can accommodate a newborn baby (with a cocoon insert or compatible car seat) or a kid up to 50 pounds. The stroller seat is completely reversible, so your child can face forward or back toward you. And unlike many lightweight strollers, the Ant has a height-adjustable seat and handlebar.

    Heads up

    Changing the direction the seat faces or folding the Ant is a multistep process that may make you break out in a sweat. Also, you'll need to purchase add-ons, like snack trays and cupholders, separately.

    Parents say

    "We splurged on the Bugaboo Ant for our 2-year-old. It's very compact."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 15.8 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions: 9.03 x 14.96 x 21.65 inches
    • Can accommodate up to 50 pounds

    Available at Amazon starting at $549

  • Chicco Liteway Stroller

    Our site Parents' Pick

    Thanks to an aluminum frame, the Chicco Liteway is lightweight yet sturdy. It folds up compactly with a storage latch and carrying handle, so transporting it is easy. The Liteway offers four recline positions and convenient toe-tap brakes, along with helpful features including a parent cup holder, a storage basket, and a removable canopy.

    Heads up

    The Liteway is only for babies 6 months and up (it doesn't accommodate infant car seats). It doesn't have extras like a parent or child tray. And while some lightweight strollers handle kids up to 50 pounds, the Liteway maxes out at 40 pounds.

    Parents say

    "We have the Liteway and I love it so far. It holds my little guy really well. It's easy to set up and put away. The shade doesn't cover that much, so I usually bring a lightweight blanket and cover him with that, too."

    "I just got a Chicco Liteway and I love it! It folds nice and small, it's easy to fold and unfold even when carrying a baby, and it's light and steers nicely."

    "I have one and I love it. I didn't want to lug a huge stroller around."

    "I love the size, and it moves smoothly. It's also supereasy to push. My only complaint is that the storage basket is a bit tight."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 18.8 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions (unfolded): 34.5 x 18.5 x 41 Inches
    • Stroller dimensions (folded): 46 x 10 x 11.75 Inches
    • Can accommodate up to 40 pounds

    Available at Amazon starting at $99

  • UPPAbaby Minu Stroller

    Our site Parents' Pick

    With the Minu, you'll get all the luxurious details you've come to expect from UPPAbaby in a streamlined stroller that weighs less than 15 pounds. As-is, the Minu is appropriate for children 3 months old up to 50 pounds, but you can use it from birth with a separately sold Birth Kit (which includes a lie-flat bassinet). The Minu also works as a travel system with UPPAbaby's Mesa car seat and other seats from Maxi-Cosi, Nuna, and Cybex (adapters sold separately). Parents appreciate the one-handed fold, multiposition recline, easy-access storage basket, buttery-smooth leather handlebars, and all-wheel suspension for smooth strolling. One extra note about that basket: It can hold a hefty 20 pounds, which is a pretty impressive feat for a lightweight stroller.

    Heads up

    As with all UPPAbaby strollers, extras like snack trays and cup holders are sold separately.

    Parents say

    "If you're looking for a really lightweight stroller, try the UPPAbaby Minu. It has a one-handed open and fold, and it folds small enough to fit in an overhead compartment of a plane – it even has a carrying strap. And the Minu has a specially designed bassinet."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 14.8 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions (unfolded): 35.5 x 20.5 x 41 inches
    • Stroller dimensions (folded): 11.5 x 20.5 x 23 inches
    • Can hold a child up to 50 pounds, plus 20 pounds in the basket

    Available at Amazon starting at $399.99

  • Summer Infant 3Dlite Convenience Stroller

    Our site Parents' Pick

    At only 13 pounds, the 3Dlite is one of the most lightweight strollers on the market – with an affordable price to boot. It has convenient features, including a large storage basket with a capacity of 10 pounds, a parent cup holder and storage pocket (perfect for a cell phone or keys), an adjustable canopy, and a carrying strap. Parents also love the many recline positions, including a lie-flat option.

    Heads up

    This is a fairly simple, no-frills stroller. It doesn't work with infant car seats and isn't safe for babies under 6 months old. The seat isn't reversible, and there's no add-on snack tray.

    Parents say

    "We used a 3Dlite when my oldest was 2.5 and it was perfect. She napped a lot in there, so it must have been comfortable."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 13 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions: 27 x 18 x 43 inches
    • Can hold up to 50 pounds

    Available at Amazon starting at $65.95

  • Gb Pockit+ Lightweight Baby Stroller

    Our site Editors' Choice

    If you thought the Summer 3Dlite was lightweight, you'll be amazed at the gb Pockit+, weighing in at just over 12 pounds. It's also the world's smallest folded stroller, per Guinness World Records. When folded, it makes a small square that you can stash almost anywhere. We love how durable this stroller is, which is especially important if you're taking it on trips or navigating crowded streets or stairways. Surprisingly for such a petite stroller, the Pockit+ can be used as a travel system with Cybex infant car seats. And it offers a reclining seat and generous sun canopy.

    Heads up

    To achieve that super-compact size, you'll sacrifice a large storage basket. (The Pockit+ has a storage basket, but it's definitely on the smaller side.)

    Editors say

    "This stroller folds up so small that it fits into an overhead bin on a plane. It's lightweight and great for daycare drop-offs and being on the go."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 9.5 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions (unfolded): 28 x 18.5 x 39.8 inches
    • Stroller dimensions (folded): 14 x 12 x 7 inches
    • Can accommodate up to 55 pounds

    Available at Amazon starting at $179.99

  • Mountain Buggy Nano Stroller

    Our site Editors' Choice

    The Mountain Buggy Nano is a lightweight stroller that truly does it all. It's very light (13 pounds), folds up small, and has a travel bag and shoulder strap for easy transport. For infants, the Nano has a lie-flat recline option. Plus – this is unusual – the Nano accepts most infant car seats without any adapters needed. Mountain Buggy is known for superior maneuverability, and the Nano is no slouch here: There's even a special feature that lets you "pop" the front wheels up and over curbs with ease.

    Heads up

    This isn't a one-hand-fold stroller, and some parents have found that folding it takes a few tries to master.

    Editors say

    "This stroller is easy to use and easy to clean. It compactly folds down to travel-bag size, and you can bring it on the plane as a carry-on item. It can be used for a long time, too."

    Specs

    • Stroller weight: 13 pounds
    • Stroller dimensions (folded): 12 x 22 x 20 inches
    • Can accommodate up to 44 pounds

    Available at Amazon starting at $172.95
