Orbit Baby‘s new G2 stroller ($750) is beautifully designed with loads of great details. Made with eco-friendly fabric and sturdily constructed, there’s so much about this clever stroller that’s worth raving about.

What we like:
The most noteworthy feature is the adjustable seat, which both tilts from an upright to a fully reclining position, and swivels so your child can ride facing forward, facing sideways or facing you.
The seat has a hard plastic interior and a five-point restraint, but the fabric covering is soft and cozy especially when paired with the footmuff, an accessory also available from Orbit Baby.
We also love the fully extended canopy cover. It nearly covers the whole seat, making it perfect for naps. It keeps cold winds at bay during the winter and provides plenty of shade on sunny days.
Extremely maneuverable, the stroller — which comes in three versatile colorways (ruby/red, black/slate, mocha/khaki) — glides over curbs and uneven surfaces with ease and turns quickly and easily.
The frame is also solid, yet adaptable, especially the ergonomic handles which adjust easily to different heights. It also has no-pump tires so the wheels never deflate.
What we don’t like:
The wide wheel base makes it hard to get into tight spaces. And though it conveniently folds in half for storage, it still takes up a good deal of space.
Also, the under carriage cargo bag can be difficult to get to when your child is in the seat, although it’s detachable and sports a shoulder strap so you can use it as a diaper bag while you’re on-the-go.
This baby’s loaded with all the latest bells and whistles. Plus, it’s green. So if you’re in the market for a new set of wheels, we’d suggest putting it high on your list.
