It’s no secret that I am a “stroller person” so when I got pregnant with my second little one so soon after having my first, we knew we’d need a bigger stroller! I loved our UPPAbaby CRUZ stroller so much that I knew an upsize to the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 was the right move for us. What I found with the VISTA V2 was that it is the perfect stroller – even if just for a solo kiddo!
The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 For One
I got this stroller before I had my second little one, so we used it as a stroller for one for a few months. I love it – so much storage space and really comfy seating for our little. There are so many options for this stroller!
Many don’t realize it, but the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 comes with a bassinet! I love the ability to have a bassinet that attaches to the stroller but also folds really nicely for travel. The bassinet is great, too, because it clips in the upper or lower receivers of the stroller (giving you a ton of flexibility). UPPAbaby also sells a stand for in-home that you can clip the bassinet into as well.
Stroller Seat for 1!
I love that you can face the seat towards you or away from you and the canopy folds in and out so easily.. The shoulder straps are so so easy to adjust, which is a must for how quickly littles grow up! You can adjust the tilt on the seat, too, to make baby as comfortable as possible.
The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 For Two
This stroller is SO easy to convert to a double and I get compliments from moms all over the place. Gone are the days for the need for a bulky double stroller – the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 makes it easy to take two littles with you absolutely anywhere!
The Rumble Seat
Adding the Rumble Seat to the front of the stroller makes doubling the VISTA V2 up so easy! The straps are just as easily adjustable as those on the main seat and it also has an easy to move canopy. The seats also stack really nicely in the back of the car when removed.
If you’re not someone who does the infant car seat thing (which I know a lot of us do!), UPPAbaby offers an infant insert for the main seat of the VISTA V2. It’s snuggly and cozy and supports your newborn perfectly.
The UPPAbaby VISTA V2 With a Toddler, Too!
Did you know that the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 can actually fit 3 kids – one in each seat and a third on the piggy back board on the back!
The Piggy Back Board
The Piggy Back Board is one of the most fun accessories for this stroller! Our little one loves it SO much – she thinks it is a ton of fun. It’s got a grippy top, which helps with stability and from keeping littles from sliding off. What I love about it: it folds upright when it’s not in use. It’s also easy to snap on/off.
The Best Mods & Accessories!
One of the reasons that I love the UPPAbaby VISTA V2 is how many accessories there are to make life even easier with a stroller! You’ve already seen the Rumble Seat and Buddy Board additions above, but I’ve got more fave add-ons to share!
The Matching Diaper Bag
A diaper bag that matches your stroller might be a little fancy pants for some, but I honestly LOVE it. I’m really in love with the fabric of our stroller, so having the matching bag just felt like the right move. The straps are easily adjustable, which is great if my husband is carrying it around, and the built in stroller straps allow me to clip it on to the handle bars when the basket is full!
The Cozy Ganoosh
I’m someone who uses my stroller 365 in a cold climate, which means traversing through snow and colder temps. As soon as I saw the cozy ganoosh I knew it was an absolute must-have. Being able to zip my littles into something snuggly and warm that stays on and doesn’t slide off (or let’s be honest – get kicked off), unlike a traditional blanket is amazing. I wish someone would zip me up in one of these and push me down the street – it’s SO cozy!
The Cup Holder
A cup holder on a stroller might sound silly to some, but when you’ve already got your hands full, having somewhere to set your coffee or bottle of water while on the go is a serious must. The cup holder comes on/off easily, too, so it isn’t permanently affixed (if you’re someone who folds/unfolds their stroller all the time like I do).
The Snack Tray
Kids are constant snackers so having a little tray for them for snacking on the go is amazing to have. I love that the original bar disconnects and the snack tray clips in its place with the touch of a button. I like the cup holder portion of the tray for kiddos, too.
The Stroller Caddy
I’m someone who likes to have everything I need right at my finger tips and the branded stroller caddy for me is a must-have. Most mamas like to hook their caddy up on the handlebars of the stroller – I like to attach mine to the bottom cross bar to help me organize the basket! P.S. these make a great baby shower gift.
An Honest Review of the UPPAbaby VISTA V2
I know that I needed the extra capacity with 2 kiddos, but I am seriously in love with this stroller. I highly recommend it, even with just one kiddo. It is on the pricier side, but for someone who uses their stroller almost every single day, the investment is completely worth it. It’s also a bit of a heavier frame, but I feel like that’s worth it, too.
I definitely prefer the VISTA V2 for going through the snow. It features larger tires and a slightly heavier frame which makes it easier for winter! You might think this sounds crazy, but when it snows six months out of the year where I live, having a stroller that can roll on through it is a necessity.
