Let’s face it, many of us don’t really know how many kids we want. After all, having a child is a big responsibility and is dependent on a lot of different factors. If you just had your first child but you’re thinking of a second or possibly a third child, then the Baby Jogger City Select stroller will be your ideal option. Or, if you’re looking for a double or triple stroller, this Baby Jogger stroller is an awesome choice for your family. The Baby Jogger City Select stroller is THE most versatile stroller out there. It is a tandem, front-back, stroller which I consider as one of the best strollers out there given its versatility and features. Let’s go over a detailed list of features for this stroller and what I thought about these features.
Features and Pros
Suitable for One, Two or Three Kids. I absolutely love the design of this Baby Jogger stroller! As I mentioned, this is probably the most versatile stroller out there. The base model for this stroller comes with a single seat, however, there is a model with the two seats, which is available at a higher price. The second seat is also available separately. Besides that, you can also get the glider board accessory which you can use for your third child. Not sure how many kids you want to have? This Baby Jogger City Select stroller will have you covered for a long time!
Multiple Configurations. Because this stroller is so versatile, it can be set up in multiple different configurations, depending on your preference. For example, you can adjust each of the two seats to face forward or towards you. All the configurations are shown below.
Large Sun Canopy with Peekaboo Window. I found the canopy on the Baby Jogger City Select stroller to be extensive. The sun canopy is rated for UV 50+ and has a magnetic closure peekaboo window so you can easily and quietly check on your kid(s).
Narrow Frame. The thing that’s nice about this tandem stroller is that it has a very narrow frame – similar to those of a single stroller. The Baby Jogger City Select stroller measures only 25.75” in width, allowing you to easily maneuver through doors, crowds and tight spaces.
Multiple Seat Recline Positions. The seat for this stroller is not only comfy, but also has multiple recline positions. To recline the seat, just hit the button at the back of the seat and adjust the recline you want. Each seat has a 45 pound weight capacity.
Easy Foldable. One of the stand out features of this stroller for me is its easy to fold mechanism. All you need to do is lift the sides (stroller frame) and the stroller does everything else. Maybe because the stroller was brand new and wasn’t “broken-in” yet, I found it was at times challenging to lift the sides of the stroller to fold it. Once folded, the stroller measures 43.5” x 25.75” x 38.5”. I also noted that the stroller can fold with or without one of the seats attached.
Very Easy to Push. The first thing I noticed while testing out this stroller was that it is extremely smooth and easy to push and maneuver. This is important especially if you’re planning to use this stroller as a double or triple stroller.
Travel System Compatible. This Baby Jogger stroller is travel system compatible. The adapters needed to fit the different car seats onto this stroller are sold separately.
Adjustable Handle Bar. Being a premium stroller, the Baby Jogger City Select stroller comes with what Baby Jogger calls the “telescoping handle bar.” It’s basically a feature that allows you to adjust the height of the handle bar such that it will easily accommodate parents with varying heights.
Hand Operated Parking Brake. Unlike a good chunk of other strollers out there, this Baby Jogger stroller has a hand-operated brake. This makes it more convenient to brake the stroller as the controls are just an arm’s reach away.
Swivel or Locking Wheels. The stroller is equipped with 8” front wheels and 12” air-rear tires. The air-rear tires allows this stroller to go on different types of terrain. The front wheels of this stroller swivel, but can be locked for easier maneuvering over uneven terrains.
Large Storage Space. I like the amount of storage space that this stroller is equipped with. Keep in mind that as this is a tandem stroller, some of the storage space will be taken up when you have both seats facing inwards.
The Baby Jogger City Select stroller is an excellent choice for every parent out there. Despite its innovative design and versatility, there were two things that caught my attention.
Folding Mechanism. While the folding mechanism for this stroller involves just one step, I found it difficult at times to fold the stroller. This might be due to the fact that I was getting used to the folding mechanism or that I simply because the stroller I tested out was brand new!
No Accessories Included. For a premium stroller like this, I would have liked to see some accessories such as a snack tray or removable cup holder included.
Other Noteworthy Points
The Baby Jogger City Select stroller comes in many different color options; some of which are shown below.
The Baby Jogger City Select stroller can be purchased with just a single seat, or with two seats.
Undoubtedly, the Baby Jogger City Select stroller is one of the most versatile and best-designed strollers out there. I really like the concept of sticking to a single stroller regardless of whether I decide to have more than one child. For this reason, I believe that this stroller is worth the price you pay for especially if you plan to use it for more than one child. There are many features that I love in this stroller. My two most favorite features are its versatile design with multiple configurations, and the stroller’s wheels which make the stroller super easy to maneuver. Needless to say, I’d highly recommend this stroller to any parent as it is definitely one of the best strollers I’ve tested!
