Britax B-Nimble Stroller Review

britax_b_nimble1Britax B-Nimble is a lightweight umbrella stroller that has a lot of great features of a full size stroller and can be transform into a travel system, which not many umbrella strollers can do. It has a very roomy seat with a deep recline and a weight capacity of 55 lbs.v The B-Nimble rolls on hard rubber 5.5″ wheels and performs best on the flat surface.

Now, this is not an all-terrain stroller, so you will have difficulties going over grass, mulch or gravel. It’s great for on-the-go parents who likes to go to the mall, grocery store, or to run errands around town. It weighs only 14 lbs and can be carried over the shoulder by using an attached strap. Other features include adjustable foot rest, easy fold, and lot of storage. It also comes with a number of accessories like cup holder, car seat adapter, adapter strap, and rain cover.

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars because aside from a small canopy it’s a great stroller. You can buy it for around $190 – $280 on Amazon (free shipping/free returns and to sales tax). If the small canopy is not a big deal for you, this stroller is a great deal especially with all of the included accessories. For 2013 it’s available only in green and red.

-Small canopy. The canopy is small by my standards, but it does have a small extendable sun visor that doesn’t do much. This canopy would definitely NOT work for my daughter Sophia who hates when sun gets into her eyes. Plus, when she falls asleep in the stroller, I like to bring the canopy down to create more shade. This canopy is attached to the frame and does NOT convert into so called ‘floating canopy’. It has a large peekaboo window with a noisy Velcro closure (I wish it would be magnetic).


-Handle bars. There are two non-adjustable handle bars located 41″ from the ground. I think, the height will work for taller parents very well. Much shorter parents should test it first.

-Very roomy seat. It’s 14″ wide and 28″ high from the back of the seat to the top of the canopy. It can hold a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. Now, I wouldn’t put a newborn into an umbrella stroller just because little babies need more neck support and a smoother ride. It has an infinite recline operated by a strap system. It is a deep recline that goes almost to a flat position.  I would like to see an one-hand lever recline instead. The great thing about the seat is that you can easily remove the fabric and wash it!


-5 point harness. It has a 5 point non-padded harness with a center release button that is hard to unlock, so your little one will not be able to escape. Perfect!

-Storage pocket. There is a large storage pocket in the back of the seat where you can store all of your mommy essentials like sunglasses, sunscreen, and cell phone.


-Adjustable foot rest. It is a nice feature to have for an umbrella stroller. The foot rest has only two positions: horizontal and at an angle.


-Small basket. As with most of the umbrella strollers, the basket is small and can only fit some baby items. Fitting a diaper bag will be a struggle. If the seat is fully reclined, the access is very limited.


-Wheels. It rolls on four double hard rubber wheels that are 5.5″. The front wheels are swivel, but can be locked straight for more stability.


-Brake. There is a foot brake in the back that is not flip-flop friendly.


-Easy fold. You will need both hands to fold it, but it’s very easy and you won’t need to use your foot. It has an automatic lock that will lock the folded stroller in place. The folded dimensions are 41.5″L x 12″W x 9″H. It’s very compact!


-Shoulder strap. There is a shoulder strap conveniently located in the back, so you can carry it over your shoulder. It weighs only 14 lbs, which is not bad comparing to other strollers on the market.

-Cup holder. INCLUDED! With the amount of coffee we need to stay awake, it’s a must have item. LOL. My baby girl wakes me up at 5:30 am every morning no matter how late she goes to bed! Argh… 5:30 am is just not my time and I need a lot of coffee daily.

-Car seat adapter. INCLUDED! This car seat adapter can be used with Britax Chaperone and B-safe infant car seats. You can also purchase an universal car seat adapter to use with popular car seats made by Chicco, Graco, and Peg Perego. It is not often that an umbrella stroller can convert into a travel system. Big selling point for parents who want to have just one stroller.

-Adapter strap. INCLUDED! The strap will give you ability to use other popular car seats like Chicco, Graco, and Peg Perego.

-Rain cover. INCLUDED!

-Light weight. It weights ONLY 14 lbs! Don’t be confused by the information on Britax site where it says the weight is 13 lbs. It’s 13 lbs without a canopy, but with the canopy it weighs 14 lbs. As always the weight info is all over the place.


-Small canopy. I would like to see a larger canopy or at least the “follow-the-sun” option. During summer, I like to shade my child as much as I can to avoid a sun burn. I do put sunscreen on my baby girl, but I think extra protection wouldn’t hurt especially if I am outside for a long time.

Where to buy it

My favorite place to buy strollers and a lot of other baby items is Amazon. It usually has the lowest prices, free shipping, free returns and no sales tax. How great is that? You can get Britax B-Nimble in one of the two beautiful colors for around $190 – $280 on Amazon (free shipping/free return and no sales tax). The price depend on the color and the seller.
