Ease of use, comfort and convenience
Seat and harness
The B-agile double stroller features seats that recline independent of each other. Recline is achieved by pulling the recline adjuster release lever and sliding it away from the seat till you are satisfied or you come to the end of the strap. It is pretty easy to recline and bring chair back to a more upright position. The seats don’t seat all the way up so it might be difficult for a child who is interested in their environment to enjoy the ride. Both seats contain five point harnesses that are easy to put on and remove. Both shoulder and waist straps adjust with ease too.
Folding and unfolding
This stroller folds in two steps that are relatively easy. First you need to press the frame release button and then lift on the frame release straps in the middle of the seats until the seats collapses and the chassis lock engages.
Unfolding is very easy and require the release of the chassis lock and lifting on the handle untiled the frame locks in an upright position. B-agile double stroller does not fold compactly so it might be a struggle fitting it into the trunk of a small car. On the plus side, the frame is some what lightweight, so lifting this stroller is not too bad.
Canopy and handlebar
It features a large canopy with ventilation for keeping your children cool. When the car seat is installed, it unfortunately gets in the way of the canopy so you can only depend on the canopy of the car seat to protect your infant.
The handlebar is adjustable for height and thus makes this stroller comfortable for parents of a wide range of heights.
The b-agile double stroller features double wheels on each side of the front of this stroller. This wheels swivel and in combination to the bigger rear wheels help this stroller maneuver easily.

This stroller might not work well on gravel if rocks get caught up between the wheels.

The car seat is always rear facing. The click and go receivers should be removed before folding this stroller.
