Light weight stroller that meets the new 20 lb flight requirement
I originally ordered the teal color hoping that it would be a good girl color to find out that it was too dark. However after doing extensive research to meet this new rule of 20 lbs or less for a stroller to take to the gate at the airport. Thanks to American Airlines and etc.. This was my choice as I didn’t want an umbrella stroller. My husband bought this same stroller in Crimson for me and here are my thoughts.I am a stroller fashionista if I may say. I chose the Stokke over the bugaboo, the Uppababy Vista over the Quinny or Britax. Wanted the Bob but received the jeep all terrain stroller as a gift.If you are looking for a flexible stroller that is multifunctional like the Uppababy vista where you can face the baby front or back leg support up or down. This is NOT your stroller. If you are looking for a light weight quick fold stroller for tall toddlers this is what you are looking for. The under basket space is small but over all moves great. The tires need to be bigger but it’s functional and overpriced for what you get.It will meet the new airport regulations and the other option if you want a jogger is the indie Bumbleride it’s 20 lbs but if you have a tall toddler don’t waste your money. My toddler is 36.5 inches tall at 23 months and the bumbleride had no room to grow.I like the Baby Jogger don’t love it . If you have a Bugaboo or other top brand stroller you may not be as happy with this stroller but it has a purpose for me and that’s to travel international with my toddler safely in her stroller in the airports.
First off, we have been a Britax family from the start, so I will base my review from that stand point. I understand, the B-Agile is more aligned with the City Mini, but they are still the same form factor.The Baby Jogger makes an excellent looking and solid feeling stroller, this stroller has handled most terrain of our daily stroll which consists of sidewalks and some dirt. This stroller works great if you have a smaller car trunk as it folds in very compact. The seats is reclinable to almost fully flat, but at the most upright position, the seat still has a good recline. Here’s my breakdown:Positives:1. Height adjustable handlebar, much more comfortable for me at a higher level.2. Front wheel suspension adds an extra comfort during larger bumps.3. Brake system (also see negatives) it is nice having the parking brakes at a hands reach, it is very secure as well, the release requires you to pull on a latch, all can be done with one hand.4. More seat padding!5. Large hood has 2 viewing windows on the top.6. Reclining the seat seem easier to do.Negatives:1. Slightly heavier than the B-Agile2. Brake system can be a burden to use when you hands are full.3. You can’t use the handlebar for hanging items, i.e. grocery or a stroller organizer!4. When folding the stroller, the lock doesn’t activate automatically the nylon material always gets in between the lock and latch. The design on the B-Agile is better.5. When folding the stroller and the handlebar is tilted down, stroller will not fold completely as it will hit the front wheel and probably smash your fingers too (something to keep in mind).Not as much as storage area or options with the GT.As most of you already know, or will learn soon enough, purchasing a higher end stroller they never include any accessories, so you will to spend money to get a cup holder for the baby or yourself.Overall, this is still a great stroller, if we had not purchased a Britax carseat and stroller when the baby was born, this would have been the stroller I purchased, its a solid performer!
Sleek, functional jogging stroller
This is a sleek stroller. It is very well built and extremely functional. It glides easily and requires very little effort to move it. It was really easy to assemble (which surprised me because it came in a small box so I thought there would be a lot of assembly). My 20 month old loves walks in this stroller – I think because it is such a comfortable ride for her.This stroller has lot of great features. It is compact and relatively lightweight. It has a great canopy that can extend to multiple lengths and includes 2 clear windows so you can peek in on your child. The straps are padded and easy to attach. The brake is easy to use and in a convenient location. And I love how you can recline the seat to an almost flat position.The storage compartment is decent size but you cannot fit most regular sized diapers bags in it. We just packed a couple of smaller bags for food, diapers, etc. and didn’t have any problem fitting them both underneath along with a couple of lightweight jackets and water bottles.If you are looking for a nice stroller to jog or walk in, this is a great option.
Perfect for infants to 7-8 year olds under 65 lbs.
Great Stroller all around: as soon as my 2 year old saw it, she wanted to try it out and go for a ride right away. The two safety clips on the belt are very easy to close.ASSEMBLY: It took roughly 1 minute to put it together once out of the box: just plug in the 3 wheels, the canopy, and clip 2 buttons for safety.FOLDING/OPENING One-Hand fold ensures easy handling when closing the unit. Please note that this stroller is not designed for jogging. Jogging strollers have usually larger wheels, and despite the great balance of this stroller, one should be careful when running.THINGS TO LOVE: turning the stroller left or right is a breeze. It’s light. It has 3 x 8.5 inch heavy duty wheels. Support for legs is great – perfect angle for your kid’s legs – whether 2 years old or older. My 7 year old can use it too, since she’s under 65 lbs. Many strollers we tried make it hard to rest one’s legs and/or feet.THAT EXTRA ITEM that I love: the handle can be rotated in multiple positions for comfort. So many strollers out there make me bend down unnecessary since they feel short – this one allows me flexibility in handling it.
Compact and super easy to use!
First of all, you need no tools at all to put this stroller together! ((cheers)) The pieces pop together easily and quickly.Secondly, it’s very compact! We have a Jeep jogging stroller that we loved, but it was so huge we couldn’t put it in our vehicle unless we left children at home. 😛 This one fits wonderfully! Our other stroller took up a large chunk of our living room, even folded up. It wouldn’t fit in the closets. This one does! It collapses easily, and it only takes a pull of a strap on the seat to fold back up. (There’s a little button that snaps to secure the stroller from collapsing when you don’t want it to.)Another benefit of this stroller in comparison to our Jeep jogging stroller is the leg room for our children. My 2 oldest children’s legs had to bunch up a good bit to fit in the Jeep, but there is plenty of leg room with this one. It’s a great option for older children.The only slight negative is the rougher riding. The wheels on this stroller are solid, so it doesn’t ride as smoothly as the Jeep.Overall, though, we are thrilled with this stroller!
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my Baby Jogger City Mini …
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my Baby Jogger City Mini GT! I researched for months before purchasing, and so glad this is the one I chose. I have no intention of jogging, but do tons of walking. It is so light and pretty compact. It is a dream to steer! Baby is very comfortable. I am glad I got the new model even thought the price difference was huge. I think the improvement in the adjustable straps was worth the cost. Now to buy some accessories. If you are looking for a light weight jogger, this is the one you want!
One Handed Fold Action is Awesome!
The Baby Jogger City Mini GT Single Stroller is great! After using many different strollers, I really wish I had started out with this one! I’d like to point out not to be confused to think that this is not a jogging stroller. The name of the company is Baby Jogger and this stroller is a City Mini GT Single Stroller. This stroller not suitable for jogging but an absolute delight to use when out and about elsewhere. The wheels are all terrain and have some great swiveling action for maneuverability. So whether I want to take my child for a stroll down the street, out shopping, to the park, or on a walking trail I am assured this stroller is quite suitable for all these possibilities.Out of the box, the stroller was extremely easy to put together. No tools are necessary! There are detailed photo illustration in the stroller manual that walk you through each step in getting the stroller ready to use. You’ll know the wheels are attached correctly when you hear a click. After the wheels were on, I then proceeded to adjust the 5-point safety harness to make sure it securely fit my child. The harness was very easy to adjust! The only issue we came across was putting the sun canopy on but once in place the shade stays firmly attached and can not easily be removed by a child.A few of the features that are nice to have in this stroller is the easily adjustable handlebar for whomever is pushing the stroller, the one-hand fold, the generous sized UV 50+ multi position canopy with peek-a-boo windows, reclining seat, storage basket, and that the brake for the stroller is located on the upper part of the stroller near the handlebar. Honestly, this stroller packs a lot of punch! I figured it would be heavier and bit difficult to fold when needing to put it away but it’s not! It’s nice to know that someone small like me at 5"2 inches tall can wield this stroller easily! The auto-lock on the folding mechanism is also fabulous for all transporting of the stroller for all travel!The stroller recommendations are maximum weight of 65lbs and height of 44 inches. My 3 year old son and 5 year old daughter have both ridden in this stroller and say it’s quite comfortable! I found the navigation to be quite smooth and I’m fan about everything this stroller has to offer. It appears quite durable and I imagine won’t wear out quickly. There are several accessories sold separately that can add even more benefits and possibilities such as the Car Seat Adapter or a pram if you have a younger child. I most certainly recommend this stroller for the smallest of babies to children that reach the maximum size requirements!
Sleek, attractive, and durable–great for trails!
Since we currently live literally next to a mountain, a jogging stroller built for trails was a must. But while this handles itself perfectly well on on the local mountain trail as well as the bumpy areas of the in-laws’ ranch, this still has a most attractive urban look and design. The harness is secure, though allows some freedom and short-cuts (hallelujah!) so I’m not wasting time trying to fasten my daughter in. So secure Baby without too much drama. The wheels swivel well in running as well as handle rough terrain, so we’ve been taking this stroller pretty much anywhere. It’s lightweight enough to not be inconvenient and folds up nicely. Highly recommended.
I prefer this over my Britax B-Ready
When I received the Baby Jogger through the Amazon Vine reviewer program, I was aware that I will be receiving a product that has been very well received by the customers. I was however not completely sure if I’ll love it as much as I love my Britax B-Ready.The product arrived and we could assemble it in a matter of minutes. My then 15 month old son liked it so much, that he wanted to climb it immediately. Once we settled him in the stroller, he refused to climb down.We’ve taken our son out and about in this stroller to cities big and small and for strolls in the neighborhood. I absolutely love it light weight, ow easily it can be folded/unfolded and the convenience it brings in resting it against a wall in tight spaces.In terms of maneuverability and quality of the fabric and metal and ease of use, I’m quite impressed. So much that I sometimes prefer it over my Britax B-Ready.The only limitation I see in the stroller is that for a sleeping baby, I can adjust the foot rest, like I can with my other stroller. This feature could make it even more convenient for taking a baby around.
Easy to maneuver, folds up compact
We have a City Mini double and I wanted a single for when we just take out one kid or when we take all 3 and need one for our older son (almost 3). All strollers seem to take up tons and tons of space and with a double already (16-mo-old twins), we don’t have lots of space for a single. We wanted something that has more flexibility than an umbrella (for longer trips) that won’t feel like bringing along another double. This seat is quick to fold up (grab the handle on the seat–just make sure the front wheel is not locked or it won’t lock closed) and doesn’t take up much space. I’ve had another stroller that folds up with the same seat strap, but was super bulky when folded.The City Mini Strollers are dreams to push. So easy and it just flows along. It isn’t a jogging stroller (the company name Baby Jogger makes that confusing), but is practically is because it is so easy to push.I find it to be a little more difficult to adjust the shoulder strap height because you need to reach into the back and unhook the strap from the plate in the back and push it through the front hole and then feed it back through the correct one. You cannot open the panel in the back all the way to see what you are doing to get it in and out of the right spot. It would be nice if you could fold the back panel down further to get to it or if there were just a simpler way to adjust the strap height.I have the non-GT version of the double and the only 2 differences I can see are the parking brake (very cool to have it on the side instead of a foot brake) and the front wheels (GT has all-terrain). From what I understand there are no major differences between this and the 2013 model (logo, buckle, and color styling), which means if you can still get the old version it is probably not worth it to spend the extra money on the new model.Overall, a great stroller that I love. My kids love it, too (all 3 needed to take rides after I put it together). It took me about 5 minutes to assemble it (all that needs to be done is attach wheels & the canopy), so we were up and moving in a short amount of time.
Complements our regular 2011 City Mini and a little lighter too!
We have a regular 2011 City Mini for when our daughter was born. We went to the Big Box Stores and tried all of the brands and fell in love with the City Mini mainly for the compact size and super-easy folding. Years ago, my wife had been with her sister-in-law at the mall and their extremely expensive Bug-a-Boo stroller was so heavy and super complicated to fold, it took two of them to get it in the car. In the years following, we have convinced many a parent to get a City Mini.Now enter the City Mini GT – GT for the never-flat all-terrain wheels that’s a dream to use when you’re not on smooth ground. The never-flat wheels are awesome because we also have a B.O.B. Stroller Stride with the big-wheels for jogging and we have to bring a hand-pump to air up the tires ever so often, what a pain!I give the *GT* 4-stars because in comparison to the regular City Mini, my wife still prefers the Regular, non-GT and we would give that a "5". So why 4-stars for the City Mini GT?1. We feel the regular City Mini is easier to maneuver with one-hand; the regular has technically two small wheels that pivot and seem to maneuver slightly easier.2. The City Mini GT does have an adjustable handle bar angle, but we feel it somewhat makes it easier to tip back for some reason; we are more confident in our regular City Mini and perhaps it is because it is slightly heavier or perhaps the wheelbase might be slightly enlongated that it feels more sturdy.3. After using our B.O.B. with the big wheels, we would NOT feel comfortable jogging with the City Mini GT, perhaps the B.O.B. has more suspension all around and perhaps it is the bigger wheels, but if you don’t jog with the GT – then you might as well just get a regular City Mini. Yes, the GT does offer a locking front wheel, but there’s no comparison with the B.O.B. Stroller Stride line for jogging.Overall, the wheels on the GT make it slightly more bulkier and doesn’t fold as flat as the regular City Mini. So if you had to choose one stroller, we would personally choose only the regular City Mini, since the GT doesn’t give us extra features/benefits that we would use over the Regular. Still, one-handed folding and an improved "brake" make the City Mini GT a great 4-star stroller. P.S. I would give the B.O.B. Stroller Stride a 3 for overall use since it is pricey, extremely, extremely heavy, the tires need airing up ever so often, and the ONLY reason we have it is for jogging, we would not want to use the B.O.B. everyday.
My daughter is six weeks old and this has been great! Very easy to open and close and very smooth ride. My only complaint is that I wish the bottom bucket was bigger…it doesn’t fit much so I have to carry my diaper bag (other strollers have larger baskets or at least you can hang your bag from the handle) but all in all very happy with the purchase!
You definitely get what you pay for! Awesome stroller!!
I was a little hesitant to buy this stroller, because it IS expensive. But, I’m SO glad I did. What a stroller!! My daughter did not want to get out of it. Now, how many people can say that about a toddler and a stroller? The sun shade is massive, she is so well protected under it. And it rides like a dream. Highly, highly recommend this!!
