2018 Best High End Umbrella Strollers Over $200

Comfy for Baby, Convenient for You

High end umbrella strollers are the lightest weight with the most features, making your outings and travel easier and more comfortable. Here are the top picks for 2018.

Based on consumer reviews, professional guides, blog reviewers and as well as personal experience, these are the best high-end umbrella strollers this year.

These products have more features such as premium fabrics, superior suspension, and a reclining seat. Often times, you will get a lighter-weight product that is, at the same time, more sturdy and can hold a higher weight.

Some of these models accommodate a car seat! Finally the convenience of a travel system in a lightweight umbrella stroller. However, the strollers that do hold a car seat often weigh a bit more due to safety. 

There are many fabulous high end umbrella strollers in this category, so I've included some more best-rated picks at the bottom of the page.

Best High-End Umbrella Strollers Guide for 2018

UPPAbaby G-Luxe


(Stay tuned - the UPPAbaby G-Luxe 2018 will be available mid-March: shopping links, photo and review updated then!)

The UPPAbaby G-Luxe is very popular for several reasons. First it is "lightest full-size reclining umbrella stroller in the US" because it weighs only 11 pounds and reclines to a 120° angle. Even more impressive is that this feather-light umbrella stroller can hold your child up to 50 pounds!

The G-Luxe has gotten 4 and 4½-star ratings across many different web retailers for such features as the compact stand-alone fold and the enormous SPF50 sun canopy.

It's a fantastic little stroller with Consumer Reports giving it an excellent mark for maneuverability. See review for more in-depth what they have to say.

Parents use the UPPAbaby G-Luxe for going on family vacations, taking it on aiplanes for trips abroad, and keeping it in the car trunk to run everyday errands. It's earned quite a reputation for being one of the absolute best umbrella strollers you can buy today. You'll be surprised at what else this fantastic stroller can offer you as you read my UPPAbaby G-Luxe review.

Excellent maneuvering

Maclaren Quest 


For active parents on the go, the Maclaren Quest provides a lightweight solution, yet provides the comfort your child needs such as adjustable leg support. These extra features are a notch up from their Triumph, and parents feel it is well worth the price for these comforts for their child. 

This is the stroller for you if you want a light weight model that does not sacrifice features.

Previous Quest models could not accommodate a newborn because of the recline angle. However, that's now changed to a four-position one-handed recline that goes near flat, so technically a newborn can ride, though most don't use Maclaren strollers for their newborns. The Maclaren Quest also has upgraded their sun canopy this year - it's bigger with a zip-away panel that has mesh windows in it as well as a flip-out UV protective visor. It has excellent coverage now!

Discover the upgrades for this year as well as detailed differences between this stroller and the Triumph in Stroller Envy's Maclaren Quest review. You'll understand why customers give this stroller a 4½-star rating and that it is an Amazon's Choice in the umbrella stroller category.

A padded 5-point safety harness secures your child snugly and a generous extending sun canopy with large mesh zip-away panel and flip-out sun visor protects from the elements and provides air flow.
