A sturdy stroller with an upright seat and a large basket

Bien • 08 Apr 2023

I am looking for a sturdy stroller with an upright seat and a big basket. I have a BJ City Mini GT2 and the seat is very slanted...

I also have a Cybex Mios which is better from the seating position, but the basket is too small. What would you recommend? Would the Thule Shine suit us better?

Hey, Bien,

The Mios is the more upright model here because it is reversible. The Shine will be very comparable to the BJCMGT2, honestly - maybe a slight change, but truly just slight. Check, perhaps, the Joie Versatax which has a huge basket and is quite upright. Similarly, the [[cybex-talos-s-lux|Cybex Talos is an upright model with a reversible seat and a large enough (not huge) basket.

The ABC Design Avus is more upright than the City Mini GT2, also worth checking. The Valco Snap is also a rather nice model in that aspect. And I will also mention Peg-Pérego strollers as they are also on the more upright side (except for ultra-compacts like the Selfie).

Your -very berry- Eli.

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