A top-notch stroller that is beloved by many parents. It is a typical model that comes with a toddler seat and an additional bassinet. An excellent choice for families who live in the city and are in pursuit of an everyday stroller for strolling around town and running errands.

Moreover, it is ideal for families that plan on expanding, as this model grows with your child and expands for the second one. It comes with so many features, so let’s see what it has to offer.

Features

  • Seating options

The model is equipped with a standard toddler seat that can face both the rear and the front. It has six reclining positions that are easy to adjust, and it can be done with just a push of a button (it is more common for a stroller to have a couple of straps on the back seat that require using both hands).

The seat is almost fully-reclining, which means it isn’t suitable for newborns since they cannot lie completely flat. However, the seat can accommodate a child up to fifty pounds and forty inches. It also features a lovely bumper bar for the child’s safety.

A bassinet is also included in the package. It can be used from day one up until your kid reaches twenty pounds and twenty-five inches. The ventilation it offers is more than great, and it can be unzipped in the back for additional air-flow.  When you combine it with the main seat, the seating options are numerous.

  • Travel System

If you decide to purchase the UPPAbaby Mesa baby car seat, you can turn your VISTA 2017 into a travel system. No additional adapters are required, just simply click it into the frame.

Your options don’t end there. You can turn it into a travel system with some other infant car seat brands (such as Chicco Keyfit or Maxi-Cosi Mico), but you’ll need a special adapter in that case. Just like the bassinet, the Mesa car seat can also be used from birth.

  • Maneuverability

The uppababy vista henry is very easy to push and convenient to use. You can maneuver it with one hand, but considering the stroller’s width, using just one hand can decrease your steering control. It is especially better to use both hands when moving taking tight turns and moving through narrow spaces. Nevertheless, the Vista 2017 rolls like a dream.

  • Brakes

Like most convertible strollers, this one also has a foot parking brake. The pedal is equipped with green and red indicators that let the parents know if the brake is set or not.

  • 5-point harness

The five point-harness is very easy to put on and take off. It can easily be adjusted to the comfort of your little passenger. There are a couple of crotch strap positions and three shoulder height positions.

The click that you hear when you are adjusting it lets you know the strap is in the right place and that the harness has been adequately taken care off. The harness button is easy to use, but you need to apply a little bit of pressure. It was designed in that way so the little passenger wouldn’t accidentally unstrap the harness.

  • Wheels

The stroller features pivoting lockable front wheels that are suitable for tough terrain. They can handle many kinds of surfaces, including wooded trails. The polyurethane wheels are more durable and provide the stroller with additional maneuverability, guaranteeing a smooth ride. There’s also the four-wheel suspension for absorbing shocks on tougher rides.

  • Handlebar

Parents of different heights will appreciate the extendable telescoping handlebar. Tall parents won’t have to worry about kicking the back of the stroller during family strolls.

  • Canopy

One of the greatest features of this model and possibly the best canopy out there. The height is adjustable, making it perfect for a growing child. When your kid gets taller, just slide it up. As simple as that.

The lock on the canopy is excellent, so the canopy will stay in place as you slide it up and down. The material of which it is made is woven and doesn’t wrinkle. The canopy is equipped with a peekaboo window and has great ventilation.

  • Folding

  • Extras

The bug shield and rain cover that are included are a nice detail that set this stroller apart from the rest of the models on the market.

UPPAbaby Vista Stroller -Henry 2017

What’s wrong with the product?

Even though the Vista has many features that compensate for its weight, the 19.5-pound frame, 6.9-pound seat, and 8.5-pound bassinet will not be easy to push around, at least not for everyone. And that’s just the weight without all of the additional features.

The fact the snack tray and cup holder are sold separately is a bit disappointing, especially considering the stroller’s price. If you need some other additional features, they will also cost you extra.

Conclusion

The uppababy vista is a nice everyday buggy designed for urban parents. It is very easy to push and maneuver, and will certainly grow with your kids.It is difficult to find a better model in its category, and it isn’t even the most expensive one there.

The Vista 2017 is a multi-functional stroller that has many amazing features that even pricier models are lacking. If you’re searching for a product of good value that will serve your family for years, it is definitely worth the price.
