UPPABABY VISTA STROLLER FEATURES
Vista's seat is generously padded and roomy, with adjusting footrest and backrest to ensure baby finds that just-right comfortable position
The bassinet is easy to attach and remove, and the optional bassinet stand lets you safely use indoors
UPPAbaby designed an arched rear frame crossbar for excellent legroom while walking

Rubber tires on foam cores ensures you have great handling on all sorts of terrain, but never go flat.
Shock absorbers on all four wheels help smooth out the ride.
The UPPA Baby Vista has an easy fold, which quickly collapses the stroller into a self-standing position; without any need to remove the seat first.
One of the largest storage baskets among strollers is on the UPPAbaby Vista, with two convenient pockets for wallet / keys / cellphone and a water bottle.
The included bassinet is so cozy, you'll want to use it indoors too! It's safe to use up to 20 pounds. The UPPAbaby Vista bassinet/pram is lined with soft organic cotton/soy fabric, has a carrying handle and includes an apron and sun/bug shield.

FEATURED CUSTOMER REVIEW ON THE UPPABABY VISTA
I LOVE the Vista. I love this stroller so much, that even though my son is now 12 weeks old and I've used the stroller nearly every day since he was born, every time I use it I find myself exclaiming, "I'm so glad we got this stroller!" Yes, it's an expensive stroller, but it's amazing!
Best features: Parent-facing. I love that my baby can face me instead of facing out. Initially I was sold on this for the parent-baby interaction. Walking with your baby is such a great time to talk and explore! Having the baby face you also reduces the risk of over-stimulation. Recently, I also saw a new study that showed that forward-facing strollers can create anxiety in babies before they have established object permanence. Still, I realize that one day my little guy may want to face the world, so I love that I can easily flip the seat!
Bassinet. It didn't take long for my son to reject the bassinet because he wanted to be more upright and be able to see around, but I LOVED it when he was a newborn.I felt like he was so much more protected and sheltered in this when I took him out when he was really little. People love babies, but you don't really want them sticking their noses in your newborn's face. The bassinet really prevented that. Love that it was included instead of being an extra cost. We also used it for naps around the house and for him to sleep in overnight when we took him to New York City as a 9 week old.
Mosquito net. Genius. Our son was born in late May and the mosquitoes have been really bad this year. There have also been a lot of cases of West Nile around us. The mosquito net allows us to walk our baby in the evenings without worrying about him being bitten. I do wish the net fit just a little more snugly around the Vista seat, but it still does its job well.
Smooth ride. The UPPAbaby glides along like a beauty and turns on a dime. I feel so bad when I see people grinding along in their plastic wheels. This pushes well over dirt, grass, gravel and sand.
Basket. This really does have a large, useful basket. Before I had my baby, I really didn't get what the big deal was about big baskets, but now I do! I put my fully packed Jujube BFF underneath along with my ergo baby carrier and there's still room to spare. I love that there are 2 pockets in the front of it that can be used for things you want to keep track of (my son's sunhat and my water bottle, usually).
Fold. It would be nice if this had a one-handed fold, but I still find this to be easy enough. I like that it stands when folded. It snaps open easily also.
Rain shield. Love that this was included. It fits really nicely over the toddler seat.
Canopy. It really is big. With it all the way up and the sunshade out, my baby is totally shaded except for any sun that enters from the side. I wish they had little pull-out side sun shades like the main shade that could block this side-entering sunlight. I hate to have to put even a light blanket over my baby's legs in the heat of summer, but I have to do it to prevent sunburn.
Color. My husband got really excited about the orange color, which was enough for me! It's nice and bright and I love the black frame. We've been using this stroller a ton and it has stayed super clean. The fabric seems very durable.
Additional accessories that we purchased: Infant insert. As I mentioned, my son tired of the bassinet fairly quickly. The infant insert allowed us to put him in the toddler seat in a reclined position, which he thoroughly enjoys. He is 99th percentile in length, so he's starting to be too long for the insert at 12 weeks, but that's not really the insert's fault.
Bassinet rain shield. Never needed it, but was glad we had it. Given the short duration of time that my son tolerated the bassinet, we probably could have done without it.
Carseat adapter. We have the Chicco Keyfit 30. The adapter is very secure. I wasn't sure we needed this since we had the bassinet, however I'm glad we got it. It's great for quick trips into the store when I don't want to wake the baby. Also, my son is pretty heavy for his age, so we can't carry the carseat very easily- it's nice to be able to put it in the stroller for transport.
Accessory we decided against: Bassinet stand that turns into a hamper. Nice idea, but I worried about its stability with an excitable dog (boxer) in our house. I also want sure about how safe this would be for overnight sleep because ventilation is a key anti-SIDS measure.
My only complaint: The peekaboo window is nice and big, but the holes in the mesh are so big that bugs get through easily! In the hot summer, with the seat parent-facing, the window provides a great opportunity to get a breeze going through the stroller...but not when little bugs are flying in! I've used the stroller with the mosquito net down and seen bugs inside that entered through the window mesh. As a result, we've had to keep the window closed. Seems like this could easily be solved by using a finer mesh.
This stroller has paid for itself over and over again in ease of use and performance!
