Britax B-Agile Double Review
Britax B-Agile Double Review
It’s a lightweight double stroller that can take your child from birth and let’s not forget – fit through standard sized doorways. The Britax B-Agile Double is perfect for urban living.
Included with the B-Agile Double is a raincover, keeping your children dry in all weathers. It’s available in Neon Black, Chili Pepper or Steel Grey and is ideal for parents on the go. For a single version, the Britax B-Agile 3 is also available, read more in our review here!
Weighing in it at a low 13.2kg the Britax B-Agile Double is a nimble yet agile double stroller. Each seat has a separate recline, they can both be done using on hand and via the undoing of a strap.
The great thing about the recline is that it has a lay-flat position which is suitable for the use of newborns. So depending on the age of your children, you could even have a 4 year old next to a newborn – ideal for second time parents or for those with twins. Each seat unit also has a padded 5-point safety harness.
This buggy is great for folding. Simply push back the sun canopy’s put the handle bar to its highest point (you’ll see why), release the auto-fold lock and pull up on the straps located in the seat unit where the child sits.
Once folded the auto-lock comes into play. This fully stops the stroller from coming apart and if the handle has been put all the up when folding the Britax B-Agile can stand up. Perfect for storing away in a small spot.
It can fit through standard sized doorways, which is not something you hear everyday about a double stroller. With all-round built in suspension this Double buggy can take rougher terrain although was perfectly designed for urban living. The front wheels are lockable 360 degree swivel wheels, so no matter on the terrain should give a comfortable ride. By being able to lock these wheels it also makes longer walks easier as will stop the buggy moving about to much. The tyres are also puncture resistant which is great for on the go parents.
The aluminium lightweight chassis lets this buggy simply glide in your hands. There is even a handle in the middle of the handlebar which allows you to steer the buggy one handed. The brake is a simple tap-on, tap-off procedure and it is even flip-flop friendly so all toes will be safe during the summer months.
The handle bar is adjustable in height and is comfortable to push on and soft to the touch. It’s well padded so doesn’t add pressure to push and you’ll be able to push this stroller all day long.
Each seat unit has an individually adjustable sun canopy. Each canopy has a peek-a-boo style window that when lifted up reveals a mesh-like material enabling air-to circulate through the buggy and for you to also take a peek in on your little one.
Both canopy’s also have a mesh panel in the hood that can be zipped and un-zipped depending on the weather. This is a great touch from Britax and as it can be zipped away, also makes it great for the colder months where air might not be needed to flow through the buggy.
The under seat storage basket is spacious and has more then enough space for all of your children’s essentials, and in accessible from the rear and both sides of the buggy.
In the back of the sun canopy’s there is a storage pocket in both, this has a zip to keep all items securely tucked away. If either child is asleep, these pockets come in extremely handy but not having to try and get under the seat unit and fetch something out. We love this feature.
The right seat unit can be removed to allow for a car seat to be connected. The B-Agile Double can only take one car seat on the right hand side and you’ll need Click and Go Receivers to get going. To turn this into a travel system simply click on a car seat. We found the Britax Baby-Safe Car Seat or the Britax Baby-Safe II Plus SHR Car Seat worked best.
If you want to make the pushchair that little bit more snug for a newborn then why not add a Soft Carrycot or even the Britax B-Agile Cosytoes for an older child. Both accessories will keep your little one cosy and snuggled up inside. A Britax Shiny Cosytoes is also super cosy but will also add more colour to your stroller. The Performance Cosytoes is another cosytoes featuring water repellent and windproof properties, with a great warm fleece lining.
