Britax B-Nimble Review

Be Nimble, Be Green, Be Lucky

 This gorgeous Kelly green just screams Emerald Isles and shamrocks. So, what better choice for St. Patrick's Day, which is also SP 2.0's birthday, than this new Britax B-Nimble!

It is the latest incarnation of the Blink, which I reviewed previously ( 

 Upgrades on the Nimble include the new Click & Go integrated infant car seat adapter, automatic chassis lock, and a removable, reversible seat liner. 
 A raincover, cupholder, and universal car seat attachment strap is now included as well. 

Oh, and of course there are new colors, like this divine green, chic black, and silver and the whimsical cow print (Did I really just use those adjectives? ACK! I'm turning PR! Well at least I didn't stoop to the hackneyed 'iconic'.)

The Nimble is a good travel stroller. It has a back shoulder strap, decent recline, and compact umbrella fold.  And I really, really love the long leg rest.

The new car seat adapters are handy for zipping through the airport. But instead of the old travel bag, there is now a rain cover. That's a really handy thing to have, if you are traveling to an unpredictable environment. By the way, even if you don't live in a wet climate, the rain cover makes a great windshield. And if it's sunny, the canopy is generous, with a peekaboo window and retractable visor.
The B-Nimble is pretty stable. That means if you hang bags on the back, which we are all not supposed to do, but do anyway, it won't crash backwards. That leaves the net basket free to fit more bags, jackets, blankets, shopping, etc. There is also a big pocket for more storage behind the canopy.

Oh, and you can pop the new seat pad right off for washing. Another really handy feature to have when you are away from home.
So be nimble, be lucky, be green, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  1. I really wanted to like this stroller, because I like the Britax strollers in general...but Britax seriously let me down in the canopy area. I am a BIG canopy gal! LOL. I hope they redesign the B-Nimble to include that next time :)
