Britax B-Ready- Hands down, best double ever!!

We JUST got our Britax B-Ready stroller

This is what you get:




(Boy not included!!  LOL!!)

AND.......




We took it on a neighbourhood walk. Here are my first impressions of it while walking:


-Pushes GREAT, almost as good, fully loaded, as the Phil and Teds three wheeler.
-Very comfortable seats for both children.
-Easy to fold



-It has nice suspension
-Its a big stroller, not exceptionally wide, just larger then I am used to
-The children loved to look at each other



-It pushes no different with the larger child in either seat, either direction, meaning it still pushes great
-It has a section in the middle of the nicely padded handle, with extra grip on it, making it easier to push and steer one handed.
-The rear seat is really easy to put on, take off, and recline.
-The harness is going to drive me CRAZY if I dont figure something out. I might try glue. I don't THINK you need to be able to take the shoulder straps off the waist belt, but I will have to really check it out tomorrow.
-the basket is AMAZING!! SOOOooooo much room for both the toddlers feet/legs and a diaper bag, and easier to access then the phil and teds. I could never get things out of my diaper bag in the phil and teds, cause my toddler would just kick at me for leaning over him. With this basket, its very easy to access from the side or the front without disturbing the rear rider.
-Love the materials they used. The fabric is soooooooo nicely padded and comfortable.
- LOVE LOVE LOVE the mesh in the peak-a-boo window on BOTH canopy's. It was hot out tonight, I opened the baby's window, and the air just flowed through, and the flap stays open with magnets.

So far, I am really in love. This stroller may actually keep me busy for a while, and keep me from buying any other strollers for some time. Its that cool.

I have taken it around the neighbourhood, through grass, rock, pavement, curbs, and so far it is amazing. My mom (who is in some of the photos!!) even enjoyed pushing this stroller, and she thinks I'm NUTS, for my stroller obsession. The true test will be when my DH and I take the children into Vancouver City tomorrow evening for the international fireworks display. It will be interesting to see how it does in crowds, and for a sleeping stroller, for when they fall asleep afterwards.

For Britax's reputation, for poor quality strollers, the B-READY seems like it is very well made.

One of the other complaints I have is, I WISH they offered air tires. The tires that are on it are okay, but I HATE plastic tires, and these ones are all plastic. The spokes, and the foam tires. The rest of the stroller is sooooo well made (so far) and they put crappy tires on it. I don't get it!?!?!?!

Anyway, that's all I can comment on so far.

This is my honest opinion, and things may change over time. I will let you all know how we do tomorrow evening.

















UPDATE!!!!!!

So, I got to take this beauty to Vancouver for the fireworks display.  Its like it was made for me!!  LOL!!

First, it fits PERFECTLY in the back of our van, in the well, standing up on its end, and it doesn't flop around, or bang against the tailgate.  (We have a Dodge Grand Caravan).

My DH, who is 6'3", doesn't kick the back seat at all.

He HATES my stroller addiction, and usually hates every single stroller I bring into the house, or at least has horrible complaints about them, and this time he actually really enjoyed pushing this stroller.  His only complaint was, "I wish this thing had air tires!".  HA, the same thing I said!!  He also was wondering why it was so hard to "tip" backwards to get up over the curbs!!  LOL!!  I explained it to him!!  "Honey, Britax designed it to not tip when there is a child in the back toddler seat, and not one in the front seat, so it makes it harder for US to tip is as well".  He said he could live with it!!  LOL!!

I have been using it, faithfully since Friday (its now Monday) and I am STILL IN LOVE!!!!  I usually know right away if I am really going to keep a stroller or if its going to end up on the chopping block, and right now, its staying off of Craigslist!!  I will update again, after I have had a chance to use it for longer, but honestly, I have owned a few hundred strollers, and I have to say, this one, I can't say enough good things about.

Britax, thank you for your safe carseats, and now THANK YOU FOR THE B-READY!!!

Stay tuned...............

I love the use of photos in the review. It helps me to visualize this. I've been shopping with a family member and didn't see this as one of the options. Where is this available?

Such a cool stroller! I wanted one but my kids did not want to ride on it. :( they are used to our SBS double now. I wonder how long you will be able to use it. Until the kids are 3? Enjoy your ride!

I like how you put that! "This stroller may actually keep me busy for a while, and keep me from buying any other strollers for some time. Its that cool." I really want this one when we have another baby :) After trying six strollers, I still can't commit to any one. Though we really enjoyed the new 2010 Bumbleride Flite. So coming from you I'm hoping this would be a good choice!
