Baby Jogger City Mini as travel/umbrella stroller?

So my MIL asked if I was putting a lighter weight/ umbrella stroller on my registry for travel ad quick trips (I am getting UB Vista as main stroller) - Is the Baby Jogger City Mini a good choice for that purpose? I saw it in the store and was light and easy to fold but wondering if anyone else used it for this purpose- Thanks

  • That's our lightweight stroller. For my lifestyle I don't see any use for an actual umbrella type. I find them uncomfortable to push and not so comfy for the kids after they get used to our nice fancy strollers. So we went with the City Mini and no regrets. It's easier to open and close than any umbrella imo.
  • We have that exact combo - UB Vista for our main stroller and the BJCM for travel(it also stays in DH's car).  We travel quite a bit and the CM has been fantastic(one-handed open/close, extended sunshade, reclines, pushes easily, etc), my only two complaints are the brake is a pain with sandals(or maybe I'm just a wuss) and the basket is so much smaller/harder to get to than the UB.  While we LOVE our UBV, I'm glad we have the CM for travel.

  • Our CM is our travel/car stroller as well- we got the travel bag for it for flying too.  We have a bumbleride indie for our walking stroller.

  • I love my city mini as a travel stroller. Its the best out there. The fold is so easy, one hand and its really light. City Mini
