    @Mrs.JA:  haha just saw this. I wanted to add that I also liked the idea that the snap n go isn’t necessary with the Britax.

    We just got the britax and it is amazing! (Baby is due in 5 weeks) the britax has a one handed super easy collapse feature and it is very compact. Also there aren’t any low bars in the back that you may be kicking as you walk (if you are on the taller side). I am 5’8″ & Darling Husband is 6’4″ and this stroller fits us perfectly.

    @Mrs.JA:  someone posted a youtube video on another thread that showed the one handed collapse for the britax – that was what sold me!

    As a new mom i just wanted to chime in and recommend that you get the snap and go or keyfit caddy with either stroller.  i have the keyfit caddy and it is a lifesaver – super light weight, easy to use, and it has a large basket underneath.  when you’re still recovering from birth, and as your baby gets heavier in the car seat, the caddy is a lifesaver for running errands.

    I don’t have a kid yet. But I have used my sister’s Citi Mini with my niece countless times and I love it. She also got the Graco Snap and Go like mufflerlove for the carseat.

    @Mrs.JA:  yup I think I’ll just use the Britax all the time, just because its so easy to add and remove the seat and its still pretty light weight. But..i”m going to try out a snap n go this weekend to see if its worth getting that too.

    I have the City Mini and Chicco KeyFit 30 seat. We purchased the Baby Jogger carseat adaptor and just leave it on the stroller full-time, it folds up and down fine with the adaptor installed. DS is just over two month old and I’ve had zero problems with the combo. For me, it’s a wonderful setup and I don’t ever need anything else. With either combination, I’d try it out first and see if you feel like you want a snap n’ go before spending the money.

    I find the City mini easy to get in and out of the car. It doesn’t have a gigantic basket, but I just put larger items in the stroller seat (under the carseat) and it works great. I’ve had no problem using it as a shopping cart in the grocery store, which is nice since the KeyFit is a large seat and can be precarious when set on smaller shopping carts.

    I’m 5’10” and Darling Husband is 6’4″ and we don’t have any issues with kicking the bar or stooping to push the stroller. I really love how agile the stroller is, I can spin it around and push it every direction one-handed – very important when trying to maneuver through non-motorized doors! That’s a good thing to do on test runs, btw, try to get in and out of doors you have to push/pull and hold open. It’s also a smooth ride for the little one 🙂

    Here’s the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoCeLTtXP-U

     

    I have the B-Agile, and I LOVE IT. My daughter is now three and it’s freaking amazing. Great handling, great shocks, the adjuster for the height is PRICELESS. For real. I recommend getting the Britax organizer, too. The video pretty much says what’s awesome more than I can, I can just vouch for it. It’s the best. We’ve taken it to Disneyland, and to stores and malls and Renaissance Faires (NERDS), and I love love love it. I’m only five feet and my husband is 6’3″, and he never has a problem kicking the back of the stroller or reaching the handles.

    Just be careful if you get the City Mini, Baby Jogger comes out with new adaptors every year and stops carrying the older models even if the strollers are still in store.Trying to find the older adaptors is a pain in the royal behind! I’ve been trying to track one down for a guest at work for two weeks and only just found one still in store for the last years strollers.

    Both strollers are great strollers and fun and easy to push around, getting the Britax and coordinating stroller/travel system makes it easy to not need an adaptor. A snap and go just makes it easy when you first have your LO to get out and go without the big stroller, but it’s really up to you and how much you think is too heavy.
