Lightweight Strolling with UPPAbaby G-LUXE

As I finally get around to sharing this post with you, seriously this baby has kicking my butt when it comes to my drive to work. Anyways as I was saying, as I look back on these photos and I am sure you will notice it too, they are most certainly not recent. These were taken on our trip to Maui this past spring and it has me terribly missing the warm sun and sandy beaches, especially since falls weather has kicked into gear this week. As soon as we booked our plane tickets for our trip, I began my search for the perfect umbrella stroller to take with us and the UPPAbaby G-LUXE was just what I was looking for.

We have been an UPPAbaby family since day one and to me it just makes sense, they know what a family needs when it comes to rolling. You might remember me sharing a post in the past about the Piggyback board an accessory we still love and use. When it came to this trip though I knew we wouldn’t need our full-size stroller, as we were drawing near Hazels fourth birthday and she was becoming more of an independent fourteen year-old every day, ha! I did know that when we weren’t spending time at the beach there was a chance we would be doing a lot of walking and I wanted something for Everett so he could rest his little legs and just maybe have a nap. The problem with most umbrella strollers though is while they are lightweight and compact, they are cheaply made, flimsy, don’t offer sun protection, storage and most certainly do not recline. Not the UPPAbaby G-LUXE though, it’s the Cadillac, if you will, of umbrella strollers.

The first box that was checked off for me during our search was the weight test. Coming in at only fifteen pounds, the G-LUXE is super lightweight, making it easy to pick up and take on the go with us. With hand level folding triggers it made for opening and closing as we made our way through the airports a breeze. And while it was meant for Everett, the G-LUXE is capable of carrying your most precious cargo from 3 months all the way up to 55 lbs so that meant even Hazel was able to have a rest when need be. There was no worry of sun protection on our trip as the G-LUXE offers the same full sunshade as our full-size stroller, the VISTA. With three recline positions Everett was even able to sneak in a little snooze or two while we were out and about exploring. 

And while the stroller was meant for easy rolling during our trip to Maui, the fun most certainly did not stop there. Since we have been back the G-LUXE has joined us on countless adventures over the summer. From the swimming pool, the PNE, to shopping (hello storage basket) and more. It’s easy to see why we love our UPPAbaby G-LUXE and there will be many more adventures in its future!
