Meet the Baby Jogger Vue Stroller

The Baby Jogger Vue is the first umbrella stroller that features a reversible seat. To reverse it, you don’t need to take out the seat. All it takes is to push the back of the seat forward and off you go!

Its unique design also features a reversible canopy that easily works for both seat modes.

Keep in mind that it’s not your typical umbrella stroller. The Vue’s thick but lightweight aluminum frame makes it sturdy. It can also be converted into a travel system.

Value for Money

Before it was discontinued, the Vue came with a cup holder and sold for about $200 on Amazon (with free shipping, free returns, and no sales tax).

Part of this stroller’s creative design is a canopy that can be easily switched depending on the seat’s direction. And it’s not an ordinary flimsy umbrella stroller at all. Its robust, lightweight aluminum frame gives it such stability that it may even be converted into a travel system.

What parents say

“It is a nice purchase for the price. I’m pleased with how dark the brown shade turned out to be. Great appearance! Once you get the hang of folding it, it works great.” – W. September 2, 2018, 2 stars

“The cup holder was likewise subpar and got lost after only two uses because it came off. It’s a mediocre stroller that is probably not worth the money, nothing fancy.” – H. August 5, 2015, 3 stars

“It is a bit expensive for an umbrella stroller. However, using it to travel with very young babies is worth it. I purchased this around 5 months ago.” – E. November 18, 2014, 5 stars

Ease of Use

The Baby Jogger Vue’s reversible seat is its distinctive feature. All you must do to turn the seat around is squeeze the lever used to recline it, and then move the seat backwards. All done! The leg rests are likewise adjustable, and the reclining even goes practically flat in the reverse mode. Because the canopy is reversible as well, it doesn’t need to be taken down.

With just one motion, this stroller’s back wheels can be locked. Please be reminded that locking it is not suitable for those wearing flip-flops.

The Vue must be folded using both hands. The process is the same as for any other umbrella stroller. Bring the canopy back, then with your foot raise up the lever at the cross bar. The frame will partially unlock as a result. As soon as you hear the automatic lock, step on the side lever, and then move the handlebars forward until they fold.

What parents say

“The downside is the bottom compartment is not easily accessible.” – Q. February 19, 2020, 5 stars

“The fact that it folds up so easily and has offers recline options makes it a great stroller for travelers.” – B. August 7, 2018, 5 stars

“It’s simple to open, but closing it is a little challenging. I’ve discovered that I need to push down while holding the release with my foot.” – S. February 26, 2018, 5 stars


You can effortlessly lift and carry the Baby Jogger Vue, thanks to its carry handle on the side of the stroller. The weight of this stroller – 17.5 lbs. – is slightly heavier than that of the typical umbrella stroller but parents in our survey said that they are okay with handling it.

What parents say

“It is lightweight and does fold up well. However, we’re turning in ours after using it for a year and expecting another child.” – J. March 17, 2016, 3 stars


The Vue has four 5.5” firm rubber double wheels for mobility. These wheels can be locked straight to handle tough terrain, and they can also swivel. Kindly note that this umbrella stroller is made for flat surfaces and isn’t very good on uneven terrain.

What parents say

“It is simple to maneuver, has a water bottle holder, and has storage space underneath the stroller.” – M. January 12, 2021, 5 stars

“The stroller is quite simple to use and maneuver.” – J. August 21, 2017, 4 stars

“It doesn’t ride as smoothly as my other stroller. But I appreciate that it is a parent-facing umbrella stroller with a wonderful canopy and a much lower price than some of the competing models.” – D. January 22, 2015, 5 stars

“It folds down and moves around with ease. Definitely a space saver and good value.” – E. October 1, 2015, 5 stars

Safety and Quality

This stroller’s buckle on its adjustable, cushioned, five-point harness can be difficult to operate.

As support for smaller newborns, the Vue includes a padded head rest. For sure, parents will appreciate all the head support they can get! There are harness systems on both sides of the seat so you may strap your infant in without having to rethread when changing the seat orientation.

Additional features would be the seat with a one-hand motion to recline or switch seat directions plus an easy compact fold with an auto lock.

What parents say

“Even though we’ve only had it for a year, it has already broken in different places. It only took us less than a year before it began to collapse.” – M. August 9, 2019, 1 star

“In all honesty, I regret purchasing this stroller. It’s incredibly dangerous. My infant has already fallen twice, and moving it with one hand is very impossible.” – U. September 10, 2018, 2 stars

“It is undoubtedly flimsier than a typical stroller but significantly more durable than the majority of umbrella strollers.” – E. November 18, 2014, 5 stars

Accessorize Your Baby Jogger Vue

Accessories that can be paired with the Vue are the car seat adapter, weather shield, soft pram, foot muff (including mittens), and carry bag. Kindly note that these are sold separately.

What parents say

“Watch out, the cup holder might easily snap off while holding a hot beverage. It’s not a good product.” – U. December 17, 2015, 1 star

“The canopy’s fabric doesn’t truly feel or appear to be waterproof. It’s a little challenging to reach the basket underneath neatly, and the interior of the stroller’s beige lining is likely to become very dirty quickly.” – E. October 01, 2015, 4 stars

Is the Baby Jogger Vue Umbrella Stroller a Practical Choice?

Travel system options are uncommon in umbrella strollers. The Vue features this helpful option, and it can be used with adapters (sold separately), such as those for the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP/SIP 30/4-35, Maxi Cosi Cabrio and Prezi, as well as those for the Britax B-Safe/Britax Chaperone, Nuna Pipa, and Cybex Anton/ Anton 2/Anton Q.

If you’re on the search for a reversible stroller and don’t really mind having a small storage basket which can be a bit hard to access especially with the seat fully reclined, has no peekaboo window, and has a loud canopy (adjusting causes it to click), then the Baby Jogger Vue could be a good stroller option to consider.
