If you’re tall and have ever tried to push a stroller while crouching down, you know that it’s a position that’s generally not conducive to comfortable strolling. That’s why we recommend the strollers in our list that are best for tall parents. They’re designed to offer a higher seat position, larger wheels, and better visibility for easy steering and smooth travel with kids.

The Approach We Took for Testing
I’m 5’10” and can still get comfortable in a stroller. But that’s not the case for taller parents. The first time I sat in a BOB Revolution Flex—which has a 30-inch canopy—I was both surprised and delighted to find that my knees weren’t cramped.
In fact, I was comfortable enough to fall asleep in the stroller, which is something I almost never do.
These taller models are great for parents who are 6 feet or taller and still want to be active parents.
Graco NimbleLite Stroller
The Graco NimbleLite is a fully-featured lightweight stroller that weighs less than 15 pounds and is great for adventures on the go.
This stroller accepts all Graco Infant Car Seats, for an easy transition from car to stroller; use from birth as a car seat carrier (infant car seat sold separately).
The parent’s tray with cup holders and storage keeps your essentials nearby and the child’s belly bar with cup holder will keep your baby satisfied while strolling.
This stroller folds down in one-step into a compact fold for on-the-go convenience.
Graco Modes Pramette Stroller
The Graco Modes Stroller offers a lot of features for a reasonable price. The reversible seat can face either parent or the world, which will please parents who prefer that their little passengers face them and those who want a better view of their surroundings. The toddler seat on this stroller can also be converted into a pramette mode for babies, and it works with all Graco infant car seats, making it one of the easiest strollers to travel with since you can just click on an infant car seat and go.
The Modes Stroller folds in one step, and the child’s tray has two cup holders and a space to store snacks and toys as well. We also appreciate that the tray can be removed to make it easier for kids to climb in and out of the stroller.
Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Travel System
For tall parents who want a jogging stroller, the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger is the best option we found. Its large bicycle tires roll easily over all surfaces, and its front swivel wheel is easy to maneuver.
The locking rear wheels keep it securely on course, and the stroller has a wide handlebar that’s comfortable to push and turn. The seat is easy to recline and adjust, and it has a five-point harness that’s easy to adjust, too.
The stroller also comes with a tether so the baby can travel facing you and a large canopy to keep the sun out of her face. The storage basket is roomy and easy to access, and the stroller folds down small enough that you can stash it in a trunk or on a bus.
Evenflo GOLD Otto Self-Folding Stroller
The Evenflo Gold Otto Stroller is a great choice for parents 5 feet, 2 inches tall or taller. It’s one of the easiest strollers to fold, and taller folks will appreciate how the handlebars are taller and the overall fit of the stroller is roomy.
The Otto is a simple stroller with a basic recline and a slightly limited storage basket. But it’s inexpensive, and it folds down small enough to fit in a car trunk, unlike the bulkier options in this category.
Ergobaby Metro+ Compact Baby Stroller
The Ergobaby Metro is our top pick for tall parents thanks to its adjustable handle and extra storage. The handle adjusts from 33.5 to 39.5 inches, which should accommodate almost anyone over 5 feet tall.
It also has more storage space than the other strollers we tested, thanks to multiple large pockets and an expandable basket. This stroller is also the lightest and smallest we tested, making it easier to lift and fit in small spaces.
It has a large canopy, and the fabric is machine-washable. It’s also one of the only strollers we tested with an option to add a fully removable, UPF-rated sunshade. The Ergobaby also worked well with our car seat, and it’s compatible with a variety of other car seats, as well as with a bassinet (sold separately).
The seat on the Ergobaby is also one of the most comfortable of the strollers we tried, with a deep bucket design that envelops the occupant and is filled with extra padding. It has an adjustable sunshade with two positions and a detachable, machine-washable liner that you can swap out for a different color.
The Metro is one of the most compact strollers we tested, folding down to a smaller size than most competitors and is one of the easiest to lift despite its lack of wheels. It has a two-year warranty and a lower price than most strollers of this quality.
Don’t Buy Before Considering These Factors
After years of testing, we’ve determined that the best strollers for tall people have the following qualities:
Fits Over Most Doors
It should be able to clear most standard doorways (about 32 inches) with a parent and infant still attached. If you plan to use public transport, you may also want to consider a stroller with smaller fold dimensions, which will fit on more types of buses and trains.
The larger the better. A bigger canopy will protect your child from sun and rain—a necessity for anyone living in a climate where it rains frequently.
Unfortunately, even some of the largest canopies are not large enough to fully cover a baby wearing a larger-size hat or facing directly toward the sun. That said, even small canopies can make a big difference in protecting small babies from direct sunlight.
Comfortable Car Seat Adapter
The seat adapter that comes with most car seats fits into almost any stroller.
