Britax B Agile Stroller 2014

B-Agile Stroller

The Britax B Agile is a stroller fit for both urban and suburban dwellers, on-the-go and active families. Stroller shopping, especially when you’re expecting your first child, can be daunting when you’re unsure what features you will need. With so many strollers on the market the possibilities are endless, but Britax makes it easy for you.

While we now keep our Britax B-Agile stroller in the car trunk, we initially lived in a small town, and the compact nature of the stroller made it easy to fold and stow away indoors (great for apartment dwellers and those living in smaller spaces). The B-Agile’s lightweight design (16.5 lbs.) makes travel a breeze, and the Quick Fold feature makes it easy to collapse and carry with one hand.

The ease in transporting the Britax B-Agile is definitely a major selling point for on-the-go families, but the smooth maneuverability and handle height are the selling points that initially won us over. I’m six feet tall (and my husband is taller), so I need a stroller with a comfortable handle height. The Britax B-Agile handle height is perfect for taller parents – no leaning or bending over to reach the handle! There are times that I just want to run in-and-out of a store, and the Britax B-Agile makes it easy to carry items in one hand and navigate the stroller with your other hand. The lightweight design and 3-wheel system allow the Britax B-Agile to turn-on-a-dime. Roomy storage beneath the seat is great for carrying everything from groceries to picnic accoutrement.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

We used the Britax Chaperone infant car seat, and the Click & Go system made traveling with Baby a breeze. Simply lock the car seat into the docks and you’re ready to go! When used with a Britax infant seat, the canopies overlap to provide complete protection from the sun, with a small window flap to check on baby – it was perfect for long walks with my July baby!

While the Britax B-Agile functions well on its own, adding the Britax Stroller Organizer creates another level of convenience. Dual cup holders hold both my and my son’s cups on long walks. The middle compartment is great for securely holding my keys and cell phone. We also have the stroller tray, but have yet to attach it for our 22 month old. The Britax B-Agile is the perfect stroller choice for us, and I see us having many more adventures with it in the future!
