Orbit Baby G3 Stroller Review

Orbit Baby G3 Stroller Review – A Complete Buying Guide

(Last Updated On: October 15, 2023)

The G3 travel system from Orbit Baby comes with convenient features such as a large storage basket and adjustable handlebars, making it easy for parents to carry all their essentials. 

The Orbit Baby G3 stroller review shows it came last among 15 car seats. As Orbit Baby G3 Stroller is this review’s expensive and overpriced car seat, we have many hopes for it.

So, it is very disheartening. This stroller has some excellent characteristics. It also has a gorgeous design that dedicates it as essential, comparatively.

But its working is not satisfactory. We observe and are disappointed in all other orbits we reviewed because, like other gadgets, they also have a nice appearance but could perform better.

We like transformations and new conceptions. But it is also felt that this stroller could be more successful, and definitely, it does not persuade me to suggest it.

With its earned a respectable score of 8 out of 10 for ease of setup, the Orbit Baby G3 Stroller proves to be versatile and user-friendly.

This article will discuss the Orbit Baby G3 stroller review in detail.

Examination And Outcomes:

The Orbit Baby G3 Car Seat moves around a manifested ‘Smart Hub.’ It permits you to lay the infant in it and manage the harness. It rotated again and locked to bring up the journey at last.

The unique design of holders gives safety from adverse effects. Its outside is queued up with superior power storing pads. These pads also increase security.

The process of ‘strong arm’ tightens the seatbelt for you. So, its fitting is nothing with the rotation of the node.

In the characteristics of this seat, also a cover of the seat which is discards able and cleanable. Redirection of the harness is not required.

This seat consists of a slushy and appropriate handgrip. When it is not used, it has been bent over.

It also has an adequately considered cover or shield. This shield occupies the total seat and provides proper safety from some factors and curious populations. In addition, it also provides calmness and silence.

This seat assists the Orbit Baby G3 Stroller. And we observe that it is straightforward to tie up this seat with the base of the Orbit Baby G3 Stroller.

We examined about 60 car seats and 29 children’s car seats. Our examination is based on crash testing for every seat. A certified lab does it in the United States. This lab is used for safety certification testing.

What Is Crash Test?

This test is conducted by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

This test ensures the convergence of the car seat or beating of the Federal Outline (FMVSS213). Almost all selling seats in the United States must pass this test. Giving the in-test shows that:

  • The car seat is working according to FMVSS213.
  • The car seat provides the proper safety.

Orbit is beating the Federal protective demands by a convenient perimeter. But some other involved seats supply a more convenient safety border above the Orbit. These outcomes show that Orbit is only giving basic elementary safety.

The Orbit comprises thin, lean foam and slushy pads than other involved seats.

Orbit has an intensive seat that the constructor professes a rise in protection. A crash test is made to examine the distinction between the qualities of the seats.

That’s why, without the crash test, it is difficult to say that:

  • Either the designs of seats are fulfilling the protection measures.
  • Or they have an extra safety margin in case of an actual crash.

Features Of Orbit Baby G3 Stroller

Orbit Baby G3 Stroller Review

There are several features of this stroller which are described below:

1.      Large Canopy

The Orbit Baby G3 stroller comprises a particular type of rough stuff/ fabric.

The canopy of this stroller is unique because it possesses three large panels, which provide extra protection when you move the canopy down to the bumper bar. 

It is made with unique, environmentally friendly Oeko-Tex® certified material. In addition, this stroller’s canopy is UPS 50+. 

This canopy will provide you with different shades as you change the color of your baby stroller. Thus, you can get up to seven sunshades. 

The main drawback of this canopy is the absence of a peekaboo window. 

2.      Adjustable Handlebars

Two adjustable handlebars can be raised about 40″ to 46.5″ from the ground. The typical design of these handlebars is designed by ergonomics and is protected with soft foams.

3.      Cup Holders 

Orbit Baby G3 stroller reviews show that it contains two cup holders. These two cup holders are present in between the handlebars.

You place your baby feeder and drinks in it. These cup holders are a blessing to me because these cup holders are strong enough to support my shopping bags.

Many times, I hung my shopping bags with these handlebars. 

4.      Rotatable Car Seat:

Orbit Baby G3 Stroller Review

This is the most adorable feature of the Orbit Baby G3 stroller. Please know that this stroller is reversible. The most exciting part of this stroller is that its seat is about 360 degrees rotatable. 

You can alter the direction of the stroller’s seat without picking the baby out of the stroller.

There are two levers on the stroller’s frame. You can easily change your baby’s stroller seat direction by squeezing and turning the lever.

You can also adjust the height of this stroller’s seat to a traditional hotel chair. You must rotate the seat to one side and close it to the dining table. 

You know this is the only stroller in the market whose seat is 360 rotatable. 

The dimension of this seat includes 13.5 inches in width, 21 inches back seat, and 23 inches from the back of the seat to the top of the stroller’s canopy.

This seat can bear weight up to 50 lbs. You can easily recline this seat by following the lever-pulling method described above.

There strollers’ seat is covered with soft cotton pads. It is best for ventilation in the summer season. You can remove and wash it in the washing machine.

5.      Infant Seat Insertion

An infant insert is possible in this stroller. The seat is covered with soft pads, providing extra support for your baby. As your little one grows, you can remove it.

6.      Mesh Seat Panel

This mesh seat panel is a blessing in hot summers because most people live in hot environments, and the earth is getting hot because of Global warming

This mesh seat panel is in the back of the stroller’s seat and is responsible for air passage in settings.

7.      Adjustable 5-Point Attachment.

Orbit Baby G3 stroller review shows that it contains a 5-point adjustable harness. A center-release buckle is also present in it. It causes ease for parents but is difficult for infants. 

There are about three types of buttons on the stroller: one is red, and two are black. You must simultaneously press the red button and crowd both black buttons to release the harness.

My likeness point for this harness, the straps are appropriately associated with shoulder straps, and there is no need to connect them. This thing will protect you from getting worried and save time.

8.      Modifiable Footrest

This stroller contains an adjustable footrest which means you can adjust it up and down according to your baby’s requirements; this is not a part of the stroller’s seat, so it cannot provide flat space for a smaller baby.

9.      Compressible Basket

There are two options in the stroller’s basket: Cargo Pad or Cargo Basket.

Cargo Pad

  • It is a small storage option and doubles as a diaper bag. There are many small pockets on the sides of this pocket, and you usually notice these small pockets in each diaper bag.
  • The main key feature of a cargo bag is that you can pack it for routine use and use this Cargo pad with a diaper bag. You can also confer it beneath the stroller’s seat when you do not need it. 
  • Its typical weight capacity is about 5 lbs.

Cargo Basket

  • The ordinary Cargo Basket is a roomy storage option. You can place your baby’s large-size diaper in it. 
  • Its typical weight capacity is also 5 lbs.
  • This basket is meant for storage, but you can approach it from the back and front sides.
  • Two tiny zipper pockets are on the sides, and you can place small things in them.

10.  Extra Storage Option

Are you aware of the stroller pannier? The Orbit Baby G3 stroller review shows that it contains a stroller pannier called “A side basket,” It is best for you if you want to go shopping with your baby.

This stroller has an extra storage option to accommodate weights up to 4.5 lbs. It is attached to both sides of the stroller. 

11.  Stroller’s Wheels

Orbit Baby G3 Stroller Review

There are four wheels in this stroller. The ordinary dimensions of these wheels are about 9 inches back and 6.5 inches front wheels.

The front wheels of this stroller are rotatable, but you can lock it in a straight position for stability.

This stroller cannot roll on rough surfaces, so we can say that it is not a terrain stroller. The wheels are made up of rubber and possess standard size.

You can roll it on irregular surfaces and carry it in the park for a long walk. You can’t imagine I moved it on an odd and grassy surface, and this stroller did not show me any problem while driving on the ground.

Suppose you compare this stroller with another same stroller type of stroller. In such a case, you can judge that this stroller is much better than any ordinary stroller.

UPPABaby and Britax B-Ready have 11 inches back wheels. That’s why I loved to see large-size wheels on the backside.

Anterior wheel suspension

The Orbit Baby G3 Stroller review shows that it contains Quadshock™ front-wheel suspension, which is helpful for an easy ride.

12.  Flip-Flop-Friendly Brake. 

You might be happy that this stroller’s brakes are flip-flop friendly.

There are two veiled pedals. One is a red pedal meant for locking. The other one is a green pedal meant for unlocking the brakes.

13.  Ease Of Folding

Like other ordinary strollers, it is also much easy to fold. Still, the main drawback of this stroller is, you must remove the stroller’s seat before the frame folding.

It is much easier to fold this stroller in one hand, and you can make it possible by meandering the crossbar in the back and lifting the stroller.

There is an automatic lock. At an early stage, you will think it is much bulky and challenging to fold because you must remove the stroller’s seat.

Believe me, once you remove the stroller’s seat and place it on its frame, you will notice it is a little compressed. 

It will cover a large storage area because all convertible strollers occupy a large surface area. 

Its folded dimensions are:

  • 25-inch length
  • 15.5-inch width
  • 13-inch height.

 Remember, this stroller’s unfolding dimension is 24 inches, and its folded dimension is 15.5 inches.

14.  Weight

Now we will discuss the weight feature of this stroller. The average weight of this stroller, with seat and basket attached, is about 26 lbs. 

Note that when you remove the stroller’s heart before the stroller’s folding, you do not need to lift the whole weight of about 30 lbs.

This weight includes 10 lbs of your little one’s weight and about 19 lbs. of your stroller’s weight with basket and frame. In my view, everyone can lift this stroller.

15.  Bumper Bar

This stroller contains a bumper bar. This bumper bar is easily cleanable; you can remove it for cleaning purposes.

16.  Food Tray

A food tray must be present in each stroller, and it is present on the right side of your stroller’s bumper bar.

In addition, you can also rotate it side away when not needed. The thing I like most is the presence of two plastic compartments covered with plastic.

17.  Bassinet Option

I love this orbit baby G3 stroller bassinet. It is light in weight and transportable. Moreover, it provides extra space for your baby to sleep and remain comfortable.

This stroller’s bassinet is about 10 lbs, and you can stop it on any Orbit stroller by creating a beautiful pram.

The bassinet option of this stroller contains a mattress present in it. It allows the ventilation or exchange of air.

In addition, a soft touch airable cloth is responsible for keeping your baby’s skin dry and protected from the temperature. 

Its folded dimension is about 6 inches, making it easy to transport. It also contains a detachable cover to keep your baby’s body warm and protected.

This bassinet is best for your baby from birth to weight up to 20 lbs. 

This stroller’s canopy has a full-cover sunshade, so it is enough to protect your baby from sun, light rain, and airstream harm.

18.  Travel System Option

It is possible to convert this G3 stroller into a travel system stroller. You can change the stroller’s seat with the Orbit Baby G3 infant car seat.

That G3 seat can only change with the G3 infant seat, so I want to share something with you.

 You are aware of this stroller’s seat and know that it has a circular base and will allow it to 360 degrees. 

This thing is responsible for creating ease to move your little one in and out of the car. You will be pleased to know that this is the only car seat in the stroller world that is rotatable up to 360 degrees. 

One best features of this car seat I want to share with you is the subterranean side walls, which are strong enough to protect your baby from any crash force and flying debris, including waste.

It is much easy to install, and you can’t imagine it will take about 30 seconds to install in your car.

Like the bassinet option of this stroller, the infant car seat of G3 also has a hidden shad that protects your baby from sun, light rain, and gale.

An ergonomist designs the handles of your baby’s stroller, and it will allow your baby to come close to you.

19.  Binary Mode Option

Helix Plus Double Kit is best for changing your baby’s single stroller into a double stroller.

You can upgrade your baby’s stroller just because of a unique frame with two wheels sliding into the structure of your baby’s stroller.

The Helix kit also contains adjustable handlebars and two cup holders to replace the original handlebars.

You can easily adjust this handlebar up to 45 inches from the ground from 35 inches. 

This helix kit works with all orbit baby strollers, which includes G3 Toddler Car Seat, G3 Stroller Seat, G3 Infant Car Seat, and G3 Bassinet. 12 combinations make your baby comfortable and happy. 

  • Sidekick Stroller Board Option

The stroller board is my favorite accessory for my baby stroller. Other panel attaches to the crossbars, but this stroller is unique from others because it ascribes to the wheels.

This stroller board is enough for your baby, and if you are required two panels, you can attach them to the back wheels of the stroller.

It also contains a handlebar for your little one and attaches to one side of the stroller’s frame. It is easy to attach the board. 

Moreover, you can leave it when folding the stroller.

21.  Ease Of Installation Of LATCH

When we discuss the ease of installation of the LATCH system in the Orbit Baby G3 stroller, I will give it a score of 6 out of 10. 

This is not a good average for this type of stroller group. Using the LATCH system of Graco SnugRide Classic Connect is much more challenging, and I will score a maximum of 3 out of 10. 

Cybex Aton 2 and UPPAbaby Mesa strollers are two types of strollers that are easy to install, and I will score them 9 out of 10. 

As you know, there are two options for Orbit G3 stroller, named base and seat, which are too heavy than the competition.

Mostly you had no concern with the base of the stroller, and most people do not show any interest in the base of G3.

Bases of other strollers are lighter, but this stroller base is too heavy, and its typical weight is about 14 pounds. 

The heavy weight of this stroller base makes it challenging for a person to install the LATCH and start annoying people. Other stroller bases have no such problems.

The comfort of the LATCH connection is scored below average. It might not contain a deal breaker, so it scored less than average compared with the other stroller’s straps.

According to my personal experience, it is difficult pretty difficult to install the stroller strap. Still, when you remove the stroller’s seat, you will notice it is too easy to loosen the straps. 

Some small clips are hard and protected with hardcore plastic and are meant to oppose the loop clips. There are no chances of improvement in the LATCH System of the stroller.

This stroller’s installation process is too complex, and you need to rotate the knob to tighten and loosen the straps. Moreover, a knob is also required to install the stroller’s LATCH.

It has a security issue, too, because when you pull the knob according to your requirement, at this time, this thing does not allow you to feel relaxed and secure.

You cannot protect yourself even when you move down the stroller’s handle in the anterior of the base. 

Furthermore, it is too hard to turn the knob, and my wrist feels pain when I continuously try to fit the straps for protection.

There is the absence of a lever indicator which you can quickly notice and use.

22.  The Comfort Of Installing A Belt

It is slightly easier to install a belt than the LATCH installation, and the Orbit baby G3 stroller earned high scores for belt installation.

The design should feel ashamed because the LATCH system was initially made to make installation easy. I will score it 7 out of 10 because it is easy to install than a typical LATCH system. 

Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 and the Phil and Teds Alpha are easy to install. I will be scored them 9 out of 10. Evenflo Embrace LX gained a score of 4 out of 10.

The Orbit Baby G3 stroller review shows that it contains a lock that best supports the baby and keeps the straps tight after complete installation.

Anyhow, this lock is not made up of a good design. We compared this stroller’s safety with the wave of others’ strollers and noticed that it is much more challenging to use and approach.

There much easy to thread the strap, and there is no color-coded belt path. You can easily install with a lap-only belt and accomplish with a lap strap and shoulder strap.

Most of the seats rated high in installation. Still, when you correctly install this seat in the stroller, you will notice it is much more stable than any ordinary stroller. 

When you properly install the belt with the help of a knob, the belt is much more close-fitted and stable. Make sure to keep your stroller’s strap in a normal position to lock it in the proper place.

The belt is more secure in bench-style mode than in sedan-style back because it provides more protection and is primarily found in trucks.

23.  The Comfort Of Installation Without Base

You will be disappointed that installing G3 without the base is too challenging. I will be scored it 4 out of 10 because it gained the lowest rating than Chicco Keyfit 30

Due to its bad concert, I will advise you to use a taxi cab or jet. Peg Perego is best for installing without a base, and I will rate it 10 out of 10. 

The seat belt is hard to thread on this seat, and the lack of color coding ups the ante on difficulty if you are in a rush.

It sports the American belt routing system that isn’t as secure in our minds as the European method that incorporates the shoulder belt around the back of the seat.

This seat sits higher in the vehicle seat than the competition, so it feels significantly less stable than the other seats we looked at and is wobbly even without the base height added.

Its height was also a problem during installation when the center lap belt on a truck was almostn’t long enough to fit.

The belt guides on this seat act somewhat as a lock-off and help bind the seat belt to the vehicle.

In addition, we had to use a towel to install this seat, and we feel this could be potentially less stable and annoying to carry a towel around.

The last problem is that the belt threading lock-off points were not located where they could be utilized in every situation.

Installation in one of our sedans resulted in the belt being too far down in the vehicle to make it through the clip.

24.  Quality 

The Orbit Baby G3 stroller review shows it is much more comfortable and made of the best quality material.

I will rate it 7 out of 10. Phil and Teds Alpha and the Peg Perego are the two main subcategories of this orbit stroller.

With regret, these two types are much better than ordinary Orbit Baby G3 strollers. I will score them 8 out of 10. 

Graco SungRide Classic Connect is less quality than an ordinary orbit stroller, and according to my rating, I will rate it 2 out of 10 because of its low quality.

The unique seat of this stroller is made up of padded foam, which is also covered with harder foam that is best for comfort. 

When we notice fabric, we will see that it is made of nice cloth and is skin-friendly. Undoubtedly, it is too soft, but you will be pleased to know that it is easy to clean and untearable.

Your cleaning frequency will not affect it; it shines more when I wash it. You will feel that this cloth is the best and most durable.

When comparing this stroller with other strollers, I notice that it is made up of good quality fabric, and its shell and seat possess qualities that are not present in any other orbit stroller.

Its unique light cloth is stretchable and fits entirely on the stroller. You must know that its fabric is better and works properly on the shell and seat. Still, the canopy’s fabric is not so good, and it cannot properly fit the rest stroller’s part.

As you know, this stroller’s handle is not made up of good quality material and is not durable compared to the seat and shell of the stroller.

The handles are made of cheap material, so I will not rate it.

The canopy of this stroller is also a concern; this stroller’s canopy is made up of average material and is of medium size.

In addition, it has no peek-a-bow, which is best for checking on your baby.

The best point of this stroller is that its canopy provides full coverage from sunlight, and it is also helpful to protect the baby from light rain. 

If you want to make a stroller, you must add a small peek-a-bow window in the canopy to check on your baby. The canopy cover must be present because it contributes to your baby’s comfort.

25.  Price Of Orbit Baby G3 Stroller

The typical price of this stroller is about 440$. I think that it is much more expensive than any other stroller of this type.

Due to this reason, most parents do not prefer to use it. According to my experience, one must not use such an article.

Pros

  • This stroller has all-terrain wheels.
  • The fabric is elastic, and it fits properly to the stroller part.
  • Its fabric is machine wash, and it does not tear on washing.
  • You can get the whole travel system, which works with the G3 infant car seat. 
  • It is lighter than any other stroller, and its typical weight is about 29 lbs. It is lighter than UPPABaby Vista (27 kg) and Britax B-Ready (27 lbs).

Cons

  • This stroller is much more expensive than any orbit stroller. The expected final price of this stroller is about $1250. 
  • This stroller is bulky. 
  • It is not easy to one-hand compact fold. You must remove the storage basket and wheel for folding, which is irritating.
  • There is no peek-a-bow window to check out your baby. 
  • The canopy’s cloth is not enough to protect the stroller’s part.

What are the best places to buy this stroller?

It provides this stroller in seven colors; its expected price is about $1250 on Amazon. G3 frame, G3 infant car seat, G3 car seat base, and G3 primary stroller seat are included in it.
