Summer Infant 3D Lite

Summer Infant 3D Lite

The best umbrella stroller

This easy-to-use stroller capably delivers on all our basic requirements. It’s not the most full-featured option, but it costs (and weighs) less than high-end competitors.

Buying Options

$90* from Target
$70 from Amazon

*At the time of publishing, the price was $63.

The Summer Infant 3D Lite offers all of the most useful features an umbrella stroller needs to make travel easier, including a quick one-handed (and one-footed) fold, a multiple-position seat recline for naps, a shoulder strap that works well even when you’re also carrying a baby, relatively large wheels that can handle rough terrain, and a capacious and accessible storage basket—at a price that’s a fraction of what many competitors cost. At 13 pounds, it’s one of the lightest models we found. Its straps also adjust for kids of different sizes more easily than those on competitors, and it has one of the most compact folded footprints of all the strollers we tested. However, while the 3D Lite is convenient in many ways, it does not stand up on its own when folded, its sun shade could be bigger, and it doesn’t have all the features you can find on our upgrade pick or other higher-end models.

Joovy Groove Ultralight

Higher price, but great value

This umbrella stroller weighs and costs more than our pick, but it can stand on its own when folded and offers other features you’d find on a full-size stroller.

Buying Options

$190* from BuyBuy Baby
Buy from Amazon

*At the time of publishing, the price was $137.

The Joovy Groove Ultralight manages to pack nearly every convenience and feature possible into a truly excellent umbrella stroller that still weighs under 16 pounds. Some people may find it worth paying extra for the Groove Ultralight’s two standout features: Unlike the 3D Lite, it can stand up on its own when folded, and it has a well-placed peekaboo window that lets you check in on your tiny passenger without having to stop and walk around to the front. The Groove Ultralight offers lots of storage options, including two cup holders and mesh seat pockets, but its main storage basket holds just half the weight that our top pick can.
