Q:What are your thoughts on the mesh back? I’ve read that it does snag on things when storing in the trunk. Is it very sturdy? likes/dislikes?


I’ve never had a problem with anything snagging on the mesh back. I like it because we live somewhere where it’s very hot in the summer so it keeps my son much cooler than a solid back. My only slight issue is I think it’s not as rigid or supportive as a solid back so my son tends to slump in his seat. But he looks really comfy so I don’t think that it is a huge problem. He’s still small so the sunshade doesn’t do the best job of shading him from the sun. I really love this stroller overall and recommend it.

Q:What is the maximum weight recommendation?


55 lbs is the max weight limit

Q:are the handles height adjustable?


No they are not.

Q:I’d like a stroller that reclines but this comes with everything else. Is anyone that owns it bothered or having issues that it doesn’t recline?


I just purchased this stroller and don’t mind that it doesn’t recline at all. Initially it was a consideration but now that I own it, my 6 mo. old daughter loves to look out and has no problem falling asleep in it.

Q:I was hoping to use this as a lightweight travel stroller for my baby once she turns 9 months (we have a trip planned). Would this work well for that?


I would say yes! Just keep in mind that there’s not a lot of storage space underneath the stroller, and you can’t put more than about 10 pounds

Q:How tippy is this stroller? I have a cheaper umbrella style stroller that tips over if my bag is on the handle and I take my toddler out.


It tips when my wife hangs her purse on it and we take the boy out, but it does have a mesh rack beneath the seat that you can place things in – which cheaper umbrella strollers don’t have.

Lightweight strollers will all tip with a bag on the handle… Kind of the physics of it.

Q:does the seat recline?


The G lite does not. Only the G-Luxe.
