First Year Ignite vs. Britax B-Agile: The Battle of the Strollers!

Ok, the topic of strollers has me not knowing what way to go.
Do I get a car seat/stroller combo or not?
I'm pretty certain I've decided that I don't want/need a car seat/stroller system but I'm not 100% sure.
After pricing things out and doing some research it appears that it MIGHT be cheaper to go separate.
I say might because it depends on what brand you're looking at and how much you're willing to spend.
I personally don't wanting to spend a fortune on something.  Money doesn't grow on trees, you know.
If I can find something cheaper and is just as functional, durable and has the same safety features as the pricey brands, I'll take cheap over brand!

Now that being said, I've found two strollers that I have interest in.
First is the The First Year Ignite Stroller.

This one costs $45.69 through right now.
It's lightweight (only weighs 14 pounds), easy one hand fold.
It has excellent customer reviews. Major plus in my books.
It's good for your little one up to 50 pounds and has multiple recline positions.
It has taller handles so you don't find yourself reaching down to push it.
It's equipped with a 5 point harness to ensure you baby is safe.
For less than $50.00, I don't think this is a bad find at all!

The next stroller is the Britax B-Agile.

This ones goes for $188.99 on right now.
It too, is lightweight (weights 16 pounds) and also features an easy one hand fold.
This one has great customer reviews as well.
It holds your little one up to 55 pounds.
This one is offers the option for the click and go system for car seats (although sold separately).
You also get the 5 point harness here.

Yes, there are features that I didn't touch on with both strollers.
The main points listed here are what I'm really looking for in a stroller.
I want something lightweight and easy to maneuver.
I also want it to be something that will last a while.
I find the car seat/stroller systems big and bulky.
I don't think I'd want to push one of those strollers through the mall.

Honestly, for the price point I'm definitely leaning more toward the first option.
I really like the second one too, but I don't know that I want to spend almost $200.00 on a stroller.
With both having great reviews, I don't think I can go wrong either way.
It's just going to be a matter of money I think.

So many decision to make when it come to a baby!
So much fun though!  I can't complain about that!

  1. The First Year Ignite stroller is one of my favourite lightweight strollers, this stroller looks nice, easily fold. There are the features which I am excited with the 5-point harness and the cup holder.
