A lightweight to medium-sized reverible UPRIGHT stroller

Srna • 07 Feb 2022


I am looking for light to medium-weight stroller that has a compact fold, upright seat, and looks both ways.
I have read your blog on upright seats and it helped me to understand the situation, but I still decided to go for it.

From the blog and internet search so far I got only Mamas&Papas Airo and Cybex Eezy S Twist 2 Plus.

Do you have any other suggestions in this area?

Thank you very much!

Hi, Srna,

From what you mention, you say lightweight to medium size but mention the smallest - ultra-compact strollers. Those two in the category are a good choice, even though only one is a reversible-seat stroller.

Usually, the more upright strollers are the larger ones - e.g., the Joie Versatrax/Joie Finiti which are not super small but would work from the compact and upright point of view. These are the ones I would even suggest.

The Tuc Tuc Kimbo is also a new stroller that sports an upright seat, but it is not available everywhere.

Lastly, again, do count on a reversible seater to be BIGGER than a lightweight model. And if you need a lightweight model, the Cybex Eezy S-Twist 2 Plus would be your go-to, if the reversibility is your priority.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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