Anyone who flies with a baby understands the benefits of a light travel stroller — it gets the job done while allowing you to bring more of the other important items like baby food, storybooks, and toys. While Club Bébé Voyage members rave about the GB Pockit travel stroller, we’ll help you decide which is the best light travel stroller for your family. Bébé Voyage has compiled a list of the best lightweight strollers for 2022, 13 pounds (5.9 kg) or less, to simplify your search for a light travel stroller that suits your family’s needs and budget.
Be sure to check out our quick comparison chart at the bottom of the article which gives you the weight and folded dimensions of each light travel stroller included in this list.
Club favorite light travel stroller: GB Pockit Travel Stroller
The gb Pockit travel stroller sets the bar for lightweight and ultra-compact strollers. The super-lightweight frame of a gb Pockit Air All-Terrain makes for easy lifting, carrying, and maneuvering wherever your adventure takes you. Additionally, its mesh fabric provides your infant or toddler comfort and breathability even on hot days.
- Lightest compact travel stroller on the market
- Double wheels for easy maneuvering
- One-handed, standing fold
Zoe Tour+ Classic may protect your baby from harmful UV rays. While its frame is built with durable high-grade aluminum, don’t underestimate the super-lightweight of a Zoe Tour+ Classic. With an optional extension, the Tour+ Classic can even be converted into a tandem to accommodate an additional child.
- Fits in most airline overhead compartments
- UPF50+ lining
- Adjustable footrest
The G-LITE by UPPAbaby features tall ergonomic handles for easier pushing, hand level triggers for quick folding, and a hand strap for carrying. Your baby is sure to be comfortable, riding this stroller equipped with a four-wheel suspension. Note that, unlike the gb Pockit travel stroller, the G-LITE has an umbrella fold, so it is not as compact and likely will need to be gate checked.
- Extendable UPF 50+ sunshade
- Holds up to 55 lbs
- Water-resistant fabric
For a family on the go with an infant or toddler who can sit up, Kolcraft Cloud Plus comes with some of the same features as other lightweight strollers that cost more. Again, it doesn’t fold down as compactly as a gb Pockit travel stroller, so it won’t fit into an overhead bin.
- Three-tier extended canopy
- Peek-a-boo window
- Low price tag
This is another light travel stroller designed by gb with added features like a large canopy with UPF50+ UV protection, car seat compatibility, and a backrest recline. The Pockit+ weighs two pounds more than the Pocket Air. Like the other gb Pockit travel stroller, the Pockit+ All Terrain is compact, as mentioned in our roundup of best compact travel strollers.
- Backrest recline
- Car seat compatibility
- UPF50+ UV protection
You can have both a light travel stroller and a large seat area with the Summer Infant 3Dlite. In addition, 3Dlite comes with anti-shock front wheels and lockable rear wheels.
- Flip-out sun visor
- Removable canopy
- Four-position recline
The Inglesina Quid is a stroller that is a light travel stroller that is compact enough for air travel. It’s easy to open with one hand, to brake with a touch of a foot, and to fold to fit nearly anywhere. A reclining backrest and multi-point suspension are just a couple of its features.
- Adjustable leg rest
- Full-cover extendable UPF 50+ canopy
- Rain cover included
You can start strolling your newborn baby in a Mountain Buggy Nano V3 from birth. The full recline fabric sling seat of a Nano V3 accommodates a lie-flat position, making the stroller great for newborns and children up to 44 pounds. Like the gb Pockit travel stroller, it folds down compactly enough to fit in an overhead bin on the airplane.
- Easy 2-step fold
- Carry like a shoulder bag
- Car seat adaptor included
