Bumbleride Indie

I’m not shy about being a Bumbleride fan. They might be pricey, but they sure are well made. 

Best for: A lighter-weight all-terrain stroller that’s capable of light jogging. It’s also a good option for eco-conscious parents, as Mountain Buggy offers a Natural Edition — with fabrics made from 50% recycled materials and sustainable bamboo fiber. 

Not best for: Super compact trunks, as the 12” air-filled tires aren’t exactly space saving. It’s also not meant for serious, heavy jogging — even though the wheels can be stabilized for when you feel like going for a run. 

Favorite features: Even though the wheels are hefty, the stroller still weighs a manageable 20 lbs. It’s similar to the Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle in size, weight, and abilities, but Bumbleride has a few differences: First, it can’t turn into a parent-facing seat, except as an infant travel system. (But the Bumbleride has more car seat compatibility options than the Mountain Buggy, by the way.) It also doesn’t come with the extras of the Urban Jungle — like the bumper bar and cup holder. That being said, the Bumbleride feels a bit more maneuverable and “luxe,” and the full-coverage canopy has SPF 45 protection. 

To top it off: The Indie comes in an eco-friendly option (previously mentioned) and an active sport option, with water-resistant, breathable fabric. And the original Indie now comes in a pretty aqua that stands apart in a crowd. 

Age/Weight limits: Infant to 45 lbs.
