Best Car Seat Stroller Frames for Travel



Stroller frames are listed in order of weight from lightest up to 12.5 lbs. single and 18 lbs. for twins. For travel strollers that also work with infant car seats (as travel systems), see our lightweight strollers and double/twin strollers pages.

Graco SnugRider

Why Shelly recommends it:

Bells and whistles. The Graco Snugrider is not the lightest weight or most compactly folding stroller frame, but with two parent cup holders, a height-adjustable handle, 6" wheels, and a large storage basket, you may prefer it--if you have a Graco SnugRide car seat. (It may also be used with the Graco SafeSeat, but it was designed to work best with the SnugRide). It quickly and securely locks the car seat in place, and folds with one hand with an automatic storage latch. Weight without car seat is 12.5 lbs.

Compatible with: The Graco SnugRide (or Graco Infant SafeSeat).

Baby Trend Snap N Go Double LX

Why Shelly recommends it:

One of a kind. It's not easy traveling with twins--but being able to keep both infants snug and secure in their infant carrier car seats much of the time can definitely help. While there aren't many travel systems that accommodate two infant car seats, the Snap N Go Double stroller frame will, and it accepts most major brands. Also includes a large basket underneath for storage, a parent tray with two cup holders, and a padded foam handle for comfort. Folds with one hand to 20" x 14" x 47.5. Weighs 18 lbs.

Compatible with: Baby Trend Latch Loc, Cosco Designer 22 and 35, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio, Evenflo Cozy Carry, Evenflo Portabout, Evenflo On My Way, Century Vante, and Graco SnugRide and SafeSeat.
