At 28 pounds, the Britax B-Agile Double is fairly lightweight and easy to maneuver and fold, squeezing through standard doorways and into most trunks. It gets rave reviews for its adjustable handle, huge canopies with peek-a-boo windows, and large easy-access storage basket, which can be accessed from the back, side and front. Although both seats have a full recline for newborns, it only accommodates one Britax car seat at a time.
Lots of security: The five-point, no rethread harness system on the Britax B-Agile Double, with removable infant headrests, accommodates growing children and is easy for parents to buckle and adjust. The one-touch brake engages both rear wheels with the tap of a foot, and the front swivel wheels are lockable for greater stability. Two large independently adjustable canopies provide sun protection and have peek-a-boo mesh windows with removable covers for ventilation and viewing.
Steers with one hand: Fairly lightweight for a double at 28 pounds, the Britax B-Agile Double is super-easy to maneuver through standard doorways and over everyday terrain like uneven sidewalks and playground mulch, although its plastic wheels disqualify it as a true all-terrain stroller. The front wheel suspension absorbs bumps, making for a smooth ride.
Most reviewers find it easy to fold and unfold with two hands, and they like that it locks automatically and stands when folded. However, some shorter moms say they find the process of folding and unfolding cumbersome.
The fabric is not removable or machine washable, but cleans easily with a damp cloth.
Some shortcomings, but great storage: The well-padded Britax B-Agile Double provides a cushy smooth ride for kids, but many parent reviewers note that the narrow and somewhat short seats might be uncomfortable for larger children or those in winter clothes. The adjustable handle accommodates parents of all sizes -- one reviewer said her toddler was able to push the stroller -- and has a uniquely designed cutout around the center bar, so you can place your hands in the middle and manage a one-handed steer.
The seats recline independently to nearly flat, making it a good choice for babies, but children will always be slightly reclined when sitting, because the seats don't go fully upright. Each seat accommodates a child up to 50 pounds for a 100-pound total weight rating.
Reviewers love the roomy pockets on the back of the canopies. The large under-seat storage basket is accessible from the back, side and front.
Though it's not compact when folded, the Britax B-Agile fits into most standard trunks and is reported as fairly easy to lift. It comes in black and red, but reviewers would like to see more colors. Most reviewers wish that accessories like cup holders and parent and baby trays were standard instead of sold separately.
Standard warranty, no consumer gripes: The Britax B-Agile has a one-year limited warranty against defective materials or workmanship with proof of purchase. There were no comments or complaints about customer service.
Review Credibility: Excellent Babble.com editors and reviewers tested double strollers on various age ranges and terrains. They selected the Britax B-Agile as a top pick for those with limited trunk space and also said it's best for parents looking for a double stroller that works with a Britax B-Safe or Chaperone infant car seat. However, since it only accommodates one car seat at a time, they say it's not good as an infant twin traveling system. Reviewers love the easy fold (though a tester bruised her foot because the stroller opens so quickly), the adjustable handlebar, full-coverage canopies and large, easy-access storage basket.

Review Credibility: Very Good Hollie Schultz demonstrates the Britax B-Agile in a video review, rating it highly for its great maneuverability, super-easy two-handed standing fold, dual independent canopies (though she wishes the peek-a-boo windows closed with magnets instead of noisy Velcro), reclining seats suitable for newborns, and compatibility with Britax car seats. Though the seats are fairly roomy, she notes that they could be a tight fit for large or tall children. One of her favorite features is the adjustable handle, uniquely designed so the center bar doesn't impede steering. She also loves how the large storage basket is accessible from the back, side and front.

Review Credibility: Very Good Self-described "Stroller Queen" Janet McLaughlin reviews the Britax B-Agile Double stroller, noting its good looks, adjustable handle, deep reclining seats and huge canopies (with storage pockets). She likes that it's easy to push (even with one hand) and that it folds easily, locks automatically and stands when folded. As with all of her reviews, it's highly positive.

Users praise its lightweight maneuverability and ability to fit through standard doorways, adjustable handle, huge canopies and large easy-access storage basket.

Review Credibility: Good This parenting magazine has reader-submitted reviews of all types of baby gear, including the Britax B-Agile Double Stroller. The reviewer, a mom of twins, tested it with her own babies. She loves its ease of handling (her husband says it drives like a Lexus), adjustable harness system that accommodates growing children and simple fold (though she said unfolding was a little trickier). She wishes that the fabric was removable and machine washable and that cup holders and trays were included instead of optional accessories.
