A lightweight, compact stroller for overseas holiday travel that is reversible

SarahA • 09 Apr 2022

Hi Eli,

Looking for a lightweight, compact stroller for overseas holiday travel that is parent facing as well as world facing. Does such a stroller that ticks these boxes exist?!

Thanks 😊

Hi, SarahA,

The only reversible stroller for holidays in the world – if you mean ultracompact carry-on sized stroller – is the Bugaboo Ant. This stroller is, however, not great, use- and room-in-the-seat-wise, so I actually wouldn't recommend it.

The closest to it, reversible and small, but not alway accepted by most airlines as a piece of cabin luggage, is the Cybex Eezy S-Twist², which is compact and lightweight enough (8,3 kg,
51.5 cm x 45 cm x 30.5). Still, it would probably be your best bet in this case.

My advice here is to check the two and think about whether it is what you needed, and if not, to think about a slightly larger stroller that you'd check in - OR about a non reversible stroller for your travels. I'd check multiple models including the new Bugaboo Butterfly which seems sturdy, comfy, spacious, and padded - just not having a full lie flat for smaller babies.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
