Rated 4 out of 5 by E48Mama G-Luxe - great lightweight stroller
We purchased this stroller after using another umbrella stroller (Maclaren Quest) for a few months. I prefer the Uppababy overall because it is easier to push (larger wheels), the sunshade actually blocks the sun, and I also prefer the look and color combinations.
The only major negative is that the orange fabric stains easily - from both dark colored clothing and food (including yogurt!).
Two minor trade-offs: the G-Luxe is light and feels slightly less sturdy than heavier models, and the G-Luxe seat is more forward on the frame so the basket is easier to access, but the child is less shielded from passersby.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ajcnyc great if you do not have stairs
if you have stairs to get up i would suggest a different stroller. the giggle store by us only sold this brand so i trusted it would be a good city stroller. however, if you go up more than one stair backwards the brakes lock making it super difficult to do alone. for an umbrella stroller over $200 it & sold in a major city seems like a huge design flaw. if no stairs, its a great stroller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaroGold Almost Perfect
My mom bought this stroller for us while she was babysitting. She decided that our Vista was too complicated and she just wanted an "old-fashioned" umbrella stroller. She had a point -- this is extremely lightweight and easy to fold. I don't think it is as comfortable for my little guy as the big stroller, but it gets the job done. It is great for subway rides and for days when I know I'm going to be in and out of a hundred stores, etc. I wish I could give it four and a half stars. My only complaints are the sun shade doesn't quite give full coverage and the strap for carrying is kind of awkward. I'm a small person and when I am carrying the folded stroller it hits me in the back of the knees while I walk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by superk Plus-sized Umbrella Stroller
We really love this stroller. We had been given a Bugaboo Frog that our daughter refused to ride in. We called it the shelf. Then we were given a Bugaboo Bee. We hated how bulky and awkward it was to fold, and dd also wasn't a fan. Then we got the G-Luxe. DD loves to ride in her buggy. It folds up easily, and doesn't take up too much room. The basket is reasonable. Drawbacks (minor): 1) seat doesn't sit fully upright. Sometimes dd asks to have something behind her. 2) You need to remove anything draped on the back BEFORE child gets out of stroller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NatashaN Best lightweight with recline
this is a great stroller with recline so your baby can sleep comfortably and has the largest sun shade. the only negative I would say is that the sitting up position is not very upright and your child seems to be lying back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by needforeasy Lightweight with all the frills
I love this stroller. It's light and it has all the features that I am looking for - the full recline is very deep, it's got great maneuverability and it seems pretty comfortable for my son.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great umbrella stroller
This is the perfect umbrella stroller. It has a strap to carry it easily, it can be folded and stand upright on its own (pretty cool feature) and folds easily. My only issue with it is the reclining feature. It is fine for my daughter now because she's 2, but when younger, it didn't always seem like she was comfortable at some angles.

Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect light weight stroller
I am loving this stroller! It is super light. My 9 month old seems very happy and has taken several long naps in it. The best part is that it stands up when folded. It is perfect if you don't have a lot of space, have stairs, take public transportation, etc. It's great.
The only fault I have found is the cup holder - beverages seem to spill - it's too big I think.
