It’s that time again, baby number two is due soon and you need a new stroller to accommodate an infant and an older sibling. There are lots of choices out there for parents from tandem strollers to sit and stand models that will accommodate two children. The Britax B-Agile Double Stroller is a great selection for your growing family as it is lightweight at 28 pounds and features side by side seating at just 30.5” wide to get through any standard doorway.
It can accommodate one infant car seat and one child or two children seated side by side. The only cons to this feature are that this stroller is only compatible with a Britax brand carseat and can only hold one car seat at a time. It may not be a great choice if you have two infant car seats and are intending to use a double stroller as a travel system. But, being as Britax is at the top of the market in car seats and strollers when it comes to durability and safety and the B-Agile Double Stroller has lots of great features, it is an easy pick for your double stroller needs. This stroller is also rated an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars in online reviews, making it a consumer favorite.
For its safety features, the Britax B-Agile Double Stroller has 5 point adjustable harnesses that require no taking apart or rethreading to adjust, which saves on a lot of stress when adjusting after a growth spurt. Both seats fully recline, making it a safe choice for accommodating two newborns without the need for car seats, especially since it can only hold one car seat at a time. This feature also makes this stroller a great investment when you have twins and you don’t want the hassle of a double travel system. There is a single step lock that applies the breaks to both rear wheels at the same time. You won’t have to stop and lock each wheel or only lock one or forgot to unlock one and have the stroller swivel around on you.
The front swivel wheels are also lockable. This stroller folds quickly with an automatic chassis lock to prevent the stroller from unfolding when you store it or pop it back into your trunk. It even stands on its own for easy storage in a coat closet or anywhere you need to keep it.
Comfort and Convenience Features
The Britax B-Agile Double stroller is a great stroller to take along for trips to the mall, on vacation, or even for a stroll at the park. There is a large storage basket under the seats that is accessible from both the front and the back of the stroller. This makes it easy to store your packages and a diaper bag and get quick access to stored items even if both seats are reclined.
Each seat reclines independently and has multiple reclining positions. Both seats are padded and have head cushions, making it a comfortable ride for your children. Both seats also have extra-large sun canopies to keep your little ones out of the suns’ rays. Each canopy also has a little mesh window to allow you to peek in at your children or to provide ventilation on warm days. If you require more coverage, you can buy the Britax B-Agile Stroller UV mosquito net that keeps out pesky mosquitoes as well as those harmful UV rays.
The back of each seat features a zippered pocket for you to store items you need quick access to like car keys. If you want the convenience of a cup holder, you can buy that separately as well as a travel bag for more storage, or you can just buy the Britax Stroller Organizer that has both cup holders and extra storage. You can even purchase the B-Agile Double Rain Cover to add on for protection on rainy days and B-Agile Double Child Trays which can add even more convenience to this stroller. The handle is adjustable, making it a breeze for mom or dad to push. This stroller features all wheel suspension, making it glide smoothly along. Each seat can hold up to 50 pounds, making this the possibly last stroller you will ever have to buy.
Britax B-Agile Stroller Assembly
Another great feature of the Britax B-Agile Double Stroller is that it eases every parent’s fear of assembling new baby items. If you’ve spent hours trying to figure out the crib, high chair and swing, then this is the right buy for you to ease some of that stress. This stroller comes almost fully assembled. Just pop on the four wheels and the two canopies and then you’re ready to practice folding and unfolding the stroller and even take it for a test drive. There are no tools required and the easy assembly will not test your patience as much as that crib with a million pieces did.
The Britax B-Agile Double Stroller only comes in red or black, which may be a con for parents buying everything in colors that match their nursery ensembles. When you think about spills and messes, though, black happens to be a great option to hide those spills and messes or to hide a few scuffs or scrapes along the way. The fabric is durable and can be easily spot cleaned, though.
The Britax B-Agile Double stroller retails for $449.99, but can easily be found at lower prices at online retailers. Babiesrus.com retails it for $399.99 and Amazon.com prices start at $346.78. This stroller is a great value for the price when comparing features to other similar strollers, especially its weight, ease to assemble, durability and safety.
