Britax B-Agile Stroller Review


Britax B-Agile Stroller
When you’re on the go with a little one, convenience and safety are the top priorities to consider. A stroller can be a great way to cart your child around, but choosing the right one is critical. Before you spend your hard-earned money on a stroller, you must consider your needs, your budget, ease of use and, of course, safety features. For example, if you’re going to be using the stroller mainly indoors, or on smooth pavement, you may want a different type of stroller than if you’re going to be going over rough terrain outdoors on a regular basis. It will also depend on whether you’re going to use it for exercise, as with a jogging stroller; or, whether you want it strictly for short jaunts around town. Luckily, the Britax B-Agile Stroller makes it easy to choose. This lightweight stroller has just about everything you could want. A 5-point harness makes sure that your child stays securely locked in at all times; a canopy protects them from the sun and other elements; one-hand folding makes it convenient and easy to fold and pop in your trunk; the 3-wheel system ensures a smooth ride and maneuverability.

Cons

Currently, the Britax B-Agile Stroller is only available for purchase in the U.S. (from the Amazon site).

The stroller is made in China; this does not reflect on the quality of the unit, but may deter those who are looking to buy products to support their local economy.

The seat does not come up all the way – even in the most upright position, the child must sit back at a bit of an angle.

There is no ‘parent’ organizer tray on the handle; if you have a coffee or drink, you’ll have to hang on to it yourself.
