UPPAbaby Vista Review | One year later!
This post is shared in partnership with UPPAbaby. Product choices and all opinions are my own.
We received this stroller in Fall 2017 and though I wrote this review originally early 2018, here we are nearly a year later and I wanted to give an update. Update: we STILL love it!
When I first saw the sneak peeks for the UPPAbaby Vista Loic colorway several months ago, I thought it was too good to be true. A white and black stroller, with saddle leather handles? This is what stroller dreams are made of, right?! With baby number two on the way, I knew we’d be upgrading our stroller to a double soon because #twoundertwo and really hoped we would be able to get the Vista. We had the Cruz when Nora was itty bitty and it was awesome.
There are many things I love about the Vista; It can be a single, double, or triple yielding stroller. With the RumbleSeat attachment and upper adapters, the single stroller turns into a double. Then the added PiggyBack Ride-Along board makes it functional for THREE. How wild is that?! Totally rad.
Being that it’s an inline stroller (not side by side), walking around town or through aisles isn’t an issue. The weight distribution though, makes it so you don’t feel like you’re pushing around a bus, either. The seats sit above/below one another, making the stroller more compact.
I really appreciate how many options there are for changing around the seats. The toddler seat can face in, face out, you have the bassinet that comes with the stroller that can be the main seat or below the toddler seat (you do need lower adapters for it to be on the bottom). The Toddler Seat and Rumble Seat can both face the parent, or face forward, or face opposite, or switch out to the infant carseat… seriously the possibilities feel endless. SO much functionality!
THE BASKET. it’s unreal how incredible it is. Every time I go to Trader Joe’s I use my stroller with both seats instead of a cart and I surprise the employees no joke every single time with how much I pack in there! It’s brilliant. Easily accessible and so spacious, love it.
It’s a seriously smooth ride. We’ve taken this thing with us so many places, and it has lived in our trunk for most of it’s life… and it’s a beast. It’s pretty, but it’s a beast. It’s not even dirty and we take it everywhere, Nora always makes messes eating snacks and the white holds up really well! (update - the white is NOW starting to get dirty (Oct 2018). I haven’t really made any effort to clean it yet, but it’s gone almost a year without any noticeable stains or dirtiness on the white!)… my only question is how to teach your kids NOT to bite the leather bumper bar?! Gosh. It was so pretty and now they’ve got bite marks all over *insert face palm here*
Overall this is an amazing stroller. My husband loves this stroller. He thinks it looks nice, is easy to use, and being that we’re both tall - the adjustable handle bar and the tall height is a dream for us. It’s well worth the price, for sure. It’ll last for years to come. Quality quality quality!
My only complaint that honestly has nothing to do with the stroller is that I wish I’d gotten the UPPAbaby Mesa Carseat just because I had to change out the adapters to fit our carseat (Maxi Cosi) each time I switched to the toddler seat . No extra adapters would be necessary if I had the UB carseat, but the adapters were easy to use and clicked in really easily.
10/10 would recommend! You can learn more in-depth details about UPPAbaby and the Vista here :)
