The Uppababy Vista – Tried and Tested

I’ve written before about how we came to choose the Uppababy Vista as our travel system, and just before Little M came along I unboxed it all and wrote about my first impressions. However, we’ve been properly using it for almost two months now (seriously, where did that go?!) so I thought it was about time I shared my feelings about it eight weeks on, because you never really know how good something is until you use it, do you?

Our absolute favourite feature is the basket. It’s huge. Absolutely massive. We have yet to fill it and have had lots of comments about it.

Another invaluable feature, especially in this hot weather, is the sun shade. It’s so handy to just pull out, and no faffing around moving umbrellas or shades whenever we change direction. I love knowing with confidence that Little M is protected from the sun.

We also love how high up the Uppababy Vista is. It has an adjustable handle but we have it permanently in the highest position. This means that we can stand up nice and straight when we push it, which is good for our backs, and, when folded, the base will stand up nicely before being lifted into the car.

The only downside (because nothing is ever perfect) is the lack of suspension. Fortunately we live on a new estate so all of the pavements here are lovely and smooth and it’s not a problem, but if we go off-road or onto a cobbled surface, poor Little M gets jolted about like nobody’s business. Having said that, we went to the park earlier and she was smiling away as we bumped along the path, so she clearly doesn’t find it a problem!

We always get lots of compliments on our Uppababy Vista and I have no regrets over choosing it. It looks great and, on the whole, has great functionality. I’d definitely recommend it.

    Oh! I do like the look of this….The basket is a fantastic size.
    That’s such a shame about the lack of suspension but your little one seemed quite happy about the ride. hehehe

      Yes, thankfully she loves it and it either makes her laugh or sends her to sleep!

    It’s a shame about the suspension but I guess you buy the pram to suit your needs – and if you’re not living on cobbled street or walking hills then it’s all good 😉
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x
