UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe Stroller Review
|Product Name:||UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe Stroller|
|Stroller Type:||Umbrella & Lightweight|
The UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe stroller is a stylish looking stroller that weighs only 15 pounds and supports a maximum weight of up to 55 pounds or newborns who are aged 3 months and up. This sturdy stroller is ideal for everyday use and for quick trips as it is not only lightweight, but also folds super easily. This premium stroller is in the higher price range when compared to other umbrella strollers. The stroller has an average footprint, measuring 42.5” x 33” x 19” when unfolded and 42.5” x 8.5” x 12” when folded. In my opinion, one of the things that make this stroller worth its premium price is comfort, which I’ll touch on in the next section. Let’s find out what the UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe stroller has to offer!
Features and Pros
Easy Open and Removable Canopy. The canopy for this stroller features a pull out sunshade that extends to provide protection from UV rays. The sunshade is rated for SPF 50+. The canopy coverage for this stroller is pretty large and will provide good sun protection. There is however no peekaboo window.
Convenient for Quick Trips. Whether you’re going to the grocery store, to a restaurant or to the mall, taking your newborn along on the UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe stroller is extremely convenient. In addition to weighing only 15 pounds, folding the stroller is also a breeze. It also comes with a convenient shoulder strap for easy transport and it stands on its own once folded!
Designed for Comfort. Besides the heavily padded stroller seating, the 2015 G-Luxe stroller also reclines to 3 different positions. Note however that the most upright recline position for the seat isn’t very upright which might be a problem for some. As a parent, what’s nice is that the seat recline only requires one hand. This is a big plus especially on a long day out where you may have to adjust the reclining position of the seat several times. Trust me, it can get exhausting! The footrest of the stroller is also adjustable.
Removable, Machine-Washable Seat Pad. The seat for this stroller is not only heavily padded for maximum comfort, but is also removable for washing. After all, things can get messy when newborns snack and drink in the stroller. Having a removable seat cover is certainly a big plus especially if the stroller is going to be used for many years to come.
Water Resistant Seat Fabric. The seat is water resistant, so you don’t have to worry too much about spills. Besides you can always wash the seat pad if you need to!
5-Point Harness. I found that the 5-point harness used in this stroller is easy to use. To unlock, all you have to do is press the center release button.
Tall and Ergonomic Handle Bars. The foam covered handlebar for this stroller is on the tall side, measuring 42.5 inches from the ground. This is perfect for most parents, especially those who consider themselves tall, or in the 6 feet range.
Shock Absorbing 5.75 Inch Wheels. The 4 wheels for this stroller features a suspension system which reduces the bumpiness of the ride on uneven surfaces. The wheels for this stroller incorporate a one-step brake system to park the stroller as well as swivel locks for the front wheels when strolling on uneven surfaces. When unlocked, the wheels do swivel, making it super easy to turn with this stroller.
Large Storage Space. In addition to the large storage basket, the UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe stroller comes with a removable cup holder. The large storage basket underneath the stroller seat is easily accessible regardless of the seat’s reclining position.
The G-Luxe 2015 stroller is definitely a premium stroller with its high end features. There is however one small thing which I would have liked to see in this stroller.
Absence of a Peekaboo Window. Unlike most umbrella strollers around, this stroller does not have a peekaboo window that you can use to quickly check on your newborn. Not a big con, but definitely one of those nice to have features.
Other Noteworthy Points
You can pick from several different color options for this stroller. Some of these options are shown in the pictures below.
I consider the UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe stroller as a premium lightweight umbrella stroller given some of the unique features it offers. The price tag of this stroller can be somewhat pricey when you compare it to other umbrella strollers. That being said, there are a few features that I really like in this G-Luxe stroller. The first of which is the premium quality seat pad. Not only is the seat pad super comfy, but it is also water resistant and removable for washing. The other feature I really like is the high performance wheels which helps in absorbing shock when strolling around uneven surfaces. Besides that, for some reason, this stroller also looks really stylish to me and my favorite color option has got to be “Ella” or turquoise. All in all, the UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe stroller is a premium lightweight umbrella stroller that is equipped with some features that ensure maximum comfort for your child. Without a doubt, this stroller scores a 5/5 for me.CLICK HERE to check the latest price for this stroller!
