I’m so excited to share my review of the UPPAbaby VISTA Stroller. I’ve been a long time UPPAbaby fan since Gracie was born. We had a CRUZ stroller, and still use the UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat for Norah. Keep reading to see my thoughts on the UPPAbaby VISTA double stroller and travel system.
UPPABABY VISTA DOUBLE STROLLER REVIEW
WHY WE NEED A DOUBLE STROLLER
Although Gracie is three-and-a-half, she still gets tired on long outings. Though she loves walking next to me when we go out, sometimes it’s nice to be able to have her sit in the stroller to rest. For this reason, I knew that when I had Norah we needed to invest in a double stroller.
I did so much research, but there are several reasons I decided on the UPPAbaby VISTA over other strollers.
WHY THE UPPABABY VISTA DOUBLE STROLLER?
01. It’s compatible with our car seat.
Like I mentioned above, we have the UPPAbaby MESA car seat, and we’ve had it for three years. I love that I can use it with the Vista stroller frame and the rumble seat for Gracie. Even though the car seat is three years old, and the stroller is brand new, they work together seamlessly.
02. The double stroller configuration possibilities are endless.
So, this stroller comes with one seat and a bassinet. You can also purchase a second seat (the RumbleSeat) and the car seat I mention above. The toddler seat and RumbleSeat can both face forward, face in, or one of each. They can also face each other. There are several options that work for your situation, and how your children prefer to sit. I also love that the seats recline. I use the toddler seat often to let Norah recline and nap. The toddler seat holds up to 50 pounds. The RumbleSeat holds up to 35 pounds. Right now, both girls fit in both, but eventually Gracie will use the Toddler Seat exclusively.

03. It comes with a bassinet (that’s safe for overnight sleep).
The fact that this stroller (which retails for $899) comes with the top seat, and a bassinet, makes it a total steal! We had a bassinet with our UPPAbaby CRUZ single stroller when Gracie was little, and I used it all the time for those first three months. It makes it so you can use the stroller with your newborn right away.
04. You can purchase a piggyback board for your toddler.
If you have three children or a child who is in between needing a stroller, and just wanting to rest their legs momentarily, the Piggyback kick board is a great option. It attaches to the stroller at your feet between you and the storage basket. It’s probably one of my favorite features about the UPPAbaby VISTA that I haven’t seen offered on many other double strollers.
05. It stands when folded.
This is a game changer for me. The other double stroller I had was so clunky and difficult to maneuver. When I fold up the Vista, it’s the easiest thing ever. It also makes it easy to store standing up in our closet when we aren’t using it because it takes up so much less space.
06. It has a very large storage basket.
I usually bring a baby carrier and my diaper bag everywhere I go. That means both of those things go in the storage basket. Then, if Gracie is with me (and let’s be honest, she always is, she usually has a “busy bag” and a doll, so those go in the basket. I also have to bring a blanket with us if we’re going somewhere outside, and our two water bottles. By now you get the picture, but I am constantly carrying stuff around, and this stroller basket is a workhorse! I love that it holds so much, and it really is a nice upgrade from the CRUZ-sized basket.
07. It has an amazing, extra-large shade canopy.
I love the shades on the UPPAbaby strollers. They’re UPF 50+, and pull down to cover almost the whole seat. We go on walks super often during the afternoon, and the canopy is so amazing for keeping little eyes shaded at all angles.
I really hope this review of the UPPAbaby VISTA double stroller was helpful to you. I really do not have any complaints about this stroller. We use it almost daily, and I’m so glad to have it in my arsenal of mom tools.
Let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll be happy to answer them! Thank you so much for reading!
