Loved this stroller for it's reversible ability. My 3 year old still appreciates being able to change direction. Wish the seat was bigger.

I love the color, but even more I love seeing my baby the whole time when he's in the stroller and we can talk and laugh together and also that he doesn't wake up while reclining the whole seat (versus just the back on the other strollers I had) and the basket is nice and roomy and pretty accessible all around, better then city mini as well as the price! I just wish I had this stroller first time around as well. Anyway, I'm really happy I found this one, finely the one! and sold all the others! It's steady and with 4 wheel suspension and adjustable handle bar that can go really low even my 5 year old can help to push his little brother :) Also I didn't know the handbrake is such a great thing to have, very flip flop friendly!

This Versa model is being replaced with the City Premier in the US. It will still be around in Canada because it sells well there. So, the Versa seems to be a big favorite among stroller fan Facebook groups and rates quite well. That's why I bought it for my friend, who is due late this summer. She says shipping took almost a week to LA, which arrived a day earlier than expected. It was easy for her and her husband to assemble, and they are first time parents doing so! They love the green because it pops in a sea of black and is still doable for a boy. No reviews on performance yet. If you really want to see rave reviews, again, find a fan group on social media or video reviews from 2012 and you'll be convinced at the VERSAtility of this stroller!
Quality brand with excellent customer service
Looks so good
An upgrade from the common brands that make excellent car seats but poor strollers
Big basket, nice canopy
One kid, or use glider attachment, or hacks online
A great upgrade from the "travel system" bundles at a better price.
Everyday walking indoors and out, not "off road" without wheel upgrade. Not for jogging!
Hard to find accessories like GT wheels
Expensive to buy used
March 16, 2016
Couldn't decide between the city select and versa. I went with the versa because I didn't plan on having any more babies and this was a few 100 dollars cheaper! No complaints so far! Super fast shipping. Received within a week!
Many features such as seat position and huge basket underneath
Heavier than my other strollers
Best stroller I have owned
February 28, 2016
I love this stroller! It was extremely easy to assemble and arrived within two days of ordering. This stroller has so many great features that are hard to find in one stroller, such as the hand break, large basket, reversible seat, adjustable handlebar and easy fold. It is so easy to maneuver and the ride is extremely smooth. My daughter is tall for her age and weighs 40 pounds and I can push the stroller one handed with her in it while wearing my 5 month old. You cannot even feel the weight of the child due to the suspension. It's truly the best stroller I have ever owned. I cannot believe it has been discontinued due to low sales in the US. There are a couple of things that bug me, but are easily overlooked due to how awesome this thing is. 1. The canopy does not shade your child completely when the seat is fully reclined. I think the solution to this is to unvelcro the canopy and move it down. 2. The recline button is a little tricky to get the hang of and kind of sticks a bit. 3. The stroller is on the heavy side. All in all, this stroller is the bees knees. Wish I would have purchased sooner.
February 27, 2016
This is the best stroller we have ever had! It drives so smoothly, the basket is ENORMOUS, and it is super easy to put up and take down one handed. So amazed by this stroller...
Easy to maneuver
Easy set up
Excellent stroller - especially for this price!

I debated for months and months about which stroller to get, and spent countless hours and many visits to stores researching them. In the end it came down to the Nuna Mixx and Uppababy Cruz, however I just couldn't get excited about spending 500 bucks on either of them. Enter the City Versa - very similar features and an amazing price point. I felt zero guilt about buying this stroller and it has not disappointed. It works seamlessly with my Nuna Pipa using the car seat adapters (Adapter BJ50934) and I love how fast and easy the fold is. The frame feels solid and very sturdy. The handbrake is another premium feature that I very much appreciate for it's ease of use. We also splurged and purchased the all terrain tires which has helped us enjoy some outdoor walks in the Minnesota winter.Now that I've used it for a few months there are a couple of things that I wish I could improve:- Weight - this is a pretty heavy frame, but then again I like how sturdy it is - Wish it had a telescoping handle (the new model coming out this year has this option)- An improved canopy (that is the one thing the Cruz wins for with it's extended canopy)- Mesh peekaboo windows, this has plastic (it would be nice for better airflow in the summer)A few cons aside, this is a fantastic stroller for the price and I would highly recommend it.

I have had a Britax B-Agile stroller that was great. However, my now 8 month old decided she did not like the forward facing stroller. I tried many parent facing strollers in another store and wasn't really impressed with any of the reasonably priced ones. I decided to order this one for the great price and the good reviews. I love it! It was easy to put together, folds compactly and moves easily. The silver color is also really nice and will prevent it from getting too hot in the summer...my only complaint with the Britax. I live in the city and get a lot of use out of strollers and I am very happy with this purchase! My only complaint with the Versa is that it is a bit heavier than the Britax. I am so used to constantly lugging around a stroller and carrying it up and down steps that I honestly barely notice. My family were the ones that commented on the weight! All in all this is a fabulous stroller at a wonderful price. Even though it is discontinued, I have had no problem finding accessories for it as it uses the same pieces as the City Select.
Folds with seat attached
February 22, 2016
We love this stroller! I appreciate the versatility and ease of use. I love that baby can face outward or towards me and be reclined for more comfortable napping.
Great stroller for price
January 25, 2016
I debated heavily between waiting for the City Metro to come out (after baby is born and we would have needed the stroller already), or getting the Versa. Given the amazing price on the Versa, and the 15% off coupon i used buying it on the New Year's sale, I am so glad I did. I am sure that while the Metro will have many more improvements, they werent significant enough for me to be strollerless when I needed it. I bought the bassinet as well so it would be useful to us from birth and onwards.
January 23, 2016
I think this is the best value out there for a reversible seat stroller that folds compactly. It's a bit heavy but it's a great every day stroller with a big basket.

Great compact stroller
January 21, 2016
I haven't actually used this stroller as we are waiting our baby's arrival, but it's a great sturdy stroller. Pushes real easy and has the option of having the baby face you or outward. We also were able to get adapters for the infant car seat to be used on the frame. Folds very simple and compact.
January 21, 2016
We bought this for our six-month old boy and it is awesome. My son just loves to be put in this stroller
January 14, 2016
This stroller is great! I love that it can be switched to parent facing with ease. It's very compact when folded. I gave 4 stars because it's a little complicated to break down, but overall wonderful product!
January 8, 2016
Read tons of reviews and finally decided to take a chance on a discontinued product, hoping for the best. Although my baby isn't due until the summer, I didn't want these to sell out at this price before I could get one! I have six year old twins who weigh 46-47 pounds and I can push each of them comfortably in this stroller, which says a lot. LOVE the reversible seat and huge basket, and it feels like a much more expensive stroller than the price reflects now. So happy I bit the bullet and ordered here... And shipping was FAST!
Just what I wanted
January 6, 2016
I've been wanting to try this stroller and I finally bought it and love it! We have two bobs one of which is similar to this but the parent facing option is what I wanted. Our son is now 7 months old wish I would've bought sooner!
Love This Stroller!
December 30, 2015
Love this stroller!! Drives smoothly and very easy to maneuver with one hand! Love forward and rear facing option and very large sunshade. Also much prefer the magnetic peek-a-boo window with this one as opposed to those with Velcro. Bigger, more usable basket is also nice!
December 25, 2015
I bought this stroller to keep in my car for errands. I've had the baby jogger city select for years and I love it, but I wanted something easier to fold. I also wanted something sturdy, not the cheapy kind with tiny wheels. So far the versa has proven to be a very good stroller, and considering the price it's an amazing deal. I love the pull to fold feature and the basket is a nice size. It's a very smooth ride and my son is very comfortable in it. It folds to a nice size and no disassembling necessary to fold it. I like it that you can put the seat facing forward or backward and it reclines far as well. The seat also folds very easily. The only drawbacks are 1. the weight- it's a little in the heavier side, but I'm used to it from my other stroller - and it is lighter than my old one, and 2. Unfolding the frame part of the stroller isn't so smooth bcz of the clasp holding it into folding position- maybe it's just that I haven't mastered it yet ! Overall great deal I am very happy with it!!
December 24, 2015
Love love love this stroller! Had a great experience shopping here as well. Super fast shipping.
My 'the one' stroller
December 18, 2015
After going through 5 other strollers in the last 4 years, I wasn't terribly optimistic about how much I would like the Versa but I think that I am in love with this one! Parent facing, infant compatible recline, etc. This stroller has it all!
Orange County, CA
So sad it's discontinued!
December 14, 2015
While the Versa is on the heavy side and is long to stow in the trunk, it folds fairly compact in width and it's fold is pretty quick to master. It looks sleeps and its push is fantastic--easily a one-handed push, even without the Versa GT wheels. It pushes so effortlessly that 15 month old son loved pushing it around the house after we unboxed it.The bottom is a good size and the sides of the basket are elasticized for easy access. So sad it's been discontinued by Baby Jogger since I just barely discovered it. It's getting harder to get my hands on accessories, but it was worth it for us as it was just we want Ted and way better than Britax B-agile that's been idle in our garage for months now.
Good under basket storage

December 11, 2015
bought this for my first daughter. It is fantastic. Nicely made, sturdy unlike other flip seat strollers, nice ride with larger wheels, nice fabric, large basket that is very accessible, etc. Well worth every penny. My second daughter is loving it. She's very comfortable in it. I did a ton of research and testing out in stores with all kinds of strollers because of the disappointments I had with strollers with my first born. Also I tested a lot in the stores. I made sure to put my 4 year old in them to test the 40-45 lbs range pushability. I've had several strollers and not been happy with them. This suited our needs. We need a larger basket for when we go out since I'm a photographer and need space for that bag as well as a diaper bag. Also I wanted something that would push a larger child without feeling like the stroller was straining to accommodate the weight and making it difficult to push. This glides with my 4 almost 5 year old who weighs 45 lbs. It's really too bad they are discontinuing this stroller but the City Metro looks like it will be a great replacement!
weight - heavy to carry & pickup
no standing fold
City select versa
December 10, 2015
I love this stroller. So easy to push with just one hand while chasing a 3 year old also.3 month old Baby loves it since it gives him a break from the car seat since it reclines back he's able to lay in for nap also.
This is the stroller I want
December 4, 2015
I got the stroller just 4days after order. I chose the silver color which looks so cool on the black frame. It is easy to assemble every parts. The wheels are stable and good to control. I like the hand break, the big canopy with high quality fabric, the big basket. I saw the new model of city select in store, and I think the city versa is as good as that one . The difference is the size of rear wheels and only one seat for city versa, but the price is very suitable the over value. The stroller is a little heavy which maybe more stable to hold baby. It would be better if the flat lever used to adjust seat position is not that tight.
Nice full featured stroller
November 27, 2015
I am so impressed with this stroller and didn't expect to like it as much as I do. I bought it for my fourth and last baby even though I prefer the lightest strollers available. I love my Maclarens, but this time around I really wanted to try a full featured stroller with a big basket and that was parent facing. I tried the city mini, but at my height, only 4'11", the handle was too high to be a one handed push stroller. I saw the Versa's handle was adjustable and at Albee's price I couldn't resist trying it. It is definitely a one handed push and maneuvers easily with one hand. I am in love, and so is my baby. He is 11 months old and loves facing me or his siblings. He is so comfy and the suspension is amazing. I also previously owned a Bugaboo Bee and love this so much more. The seat is higher off the ground and the fold is easy not finicky like the Bee. The wheels are The ideal size and work great along with the suspension. The basket is enormous and I love that I can stuff all the kids belongings with ease.

Love the suspension and the material on the canopy & seat is a thick nylon and won't get dirty. I bought the black stroller but would have liked the grey one if I knew the material was this tough. The wheels maneuver really well. My husband likes it too.
The price was worth it
Heavy, but I'm under 5ft and can lift it into my SUV.

Good stroller for a great price.
November 13, 2015
This stroller is great if you're looking at it at the low two hundreds price but I don't believe I'd pay the original price for this that it used to be where it was in the $400 range. It's a little too heavy for my liking but I do like that it parent faces and also has a large basket. It also pushes really smooth and even smoother if you have the GT wheels.

We love the ability to turn the seat parent or front facing or remove it for an infant seat! We did notice that the seat wobbles around a bit, but that might not be an issue with a child in the seat. It is so easy to maneuver!! We will likely order the gt wheels, but the wheels that it comes with are sufficient.
GREAT STROLLER GREAT PRICE
October 28, 2015
I originally had the City Mini GT and got this one instead. I love it. Albee shipped it quickly and it came a few days later. I love that it can collapse with the seat in, in either direction. Great basket, great price. Beats spending over 500 for other brands that don't collapse with the seat in it.

After trying many strollers I decided to go with the Versa. I couldn't be happier! It's easy to use, so comfy for my baby, and the price was great! Pushes better than some of the really high end strollers I've tried. The shipping was really quick too! Highly recommend!!!
Forward & parent facing
Multiple seat positions
October 15, 2015
I love this stroller! The ride is so smooth. I've been on several 3 mile walks around downtown and it handles as well as our BOB stroller does. I also purchased a carseat adapter for our Chicco carseat and it works perfectly. It's a little heavier than I thought but I don't mind because it is a very sturdy stroller.
Great everyday high end stroller for cheap!
September 11, 2015
So versatile! Quality. Baby Jogger stands behind their products. Parent faces. Pushes like a $900 stroller. Huge accessible basket plus back seat pocket. Great brake, adjustable handle, huge sunshade, magnetic peekaboo window! Many possible ways to personalize and accessorize. Parent organizers, belly bar, snack tray, ride a long board, other brand canopies, seat liners, weather covers... Get the GT wheels and it's a capable all-terrain stroller. Discontinued in the U.S. Which is a shame, but it gets us the sale price! Still available in Canada though. It is a bit heavy when lifting compared to some other high end rides, but there's nothing comparable in this price range. My last one had a sticky fold so I returned it on warrantee and bought this one to replace it. This one is perfect. Some people find the canopy pops off. If it does, just remove it, gently bend the statement points together so that the push into the stroller rather than pull away from it when attached. That will completely fix the problem. Love this stroller!
Great value for the money
August 23, 2015
The stroller in my opinion is better than the newer models, and we got it for half the price. The adjustable handle is super ergonomic to account for the different height of myself and my wife!
August 17, 2015
This stroller is really good quality, and was so happy to get such a deep discount. Love that the seat can face either direction and is detachable for infant car seat. The basket is also much larger than our City Mini GT. The fold in comparison is slightly more difficult, but not too bad.
The best stroller there is!
August 16, 2015
We live in the city and the stroller does really well on uneven paths. We are enjoying it a lot and the price is wonderful. Thank you albee we are more than pleased!
Very comfy, folds well. Stirs great!
Los Angeles, Ca
The best stroller ever
August 9, 2015
I absolutely love this stroller. The best $199 we ever spent! I did a lot of research on strollers to buy for my 2nd child and since we were gifted a cheap travel system, I didn't feel like I was wasting my money. The TS we have is horrible. The wheels get stuck and it's really slow and hard to turn. So my first thought was to buy the Uppababy Cruz, but since I'm not having anymore children, what was I gonna do with a $500 stroller when I'm done with it, so this option has everything the Cruz and the City Select has for a cheaper price! I love it and my son loves it too!
August 8, 2015
This stroller had good reviews so that was the reason we bought this stroller. As expected, it's easy to fold, park, and maneuver.

Baby Jogger's Best Stroller
July 31, 2015
I have admired the design of the Baby Jogger City Versa since it was first released. It is a fabulous marriage of the City Mini and City Select Models. My two most favorite features are the hand-operated parking brake, and the reversible seat with the ability to fold the stroller with the seat facing either direction. I had assumed I would upgrade to the GT wheels, but for now the standard wheels seem up to the task, and at the closeout price of $199.00 with free shipping, you're getting an awful lot of value and quality at the Graco/Evenflo/Baby Trend price.
- Reversible seat with ability to fold stroller with the seat facing either way
- Hand-operated parking brake
- 2 peek-a-boo windows with magnetic closures
- Remove the seat and add brackets for car seat travel system that is less bulky than other strollers
- Tall adjustable handle
- High quality fabrics
- Sleek look and styling
- Wish there was one more setting on the seat to make it slightly more upright
- 2 step fold is compact, but releasing the automatic lock is slightly awkward and tricky until you get used to it.
July 29, 2015
I'm still pregnant, but we opened this baby as soon as the box came. My husband thought their must be a second box that's how small it folds down. It was really easy to put together and everything functions correctly so far. I love the way it feels strolling around the house, sturdy and sleek. Can't wait to use it and the price is great!
Seat can face both ways. Fold with seat in either position. Handles great.

We bought this stroller for our second child and my only regret is that I didn't buy it for my first. It is lightweight, pushes with ease. I like that the seat can switch directions. Baby is only 3 months and still likes to see me. We also bought the attaching glider board for our oldest who is 3 and she loves to ride along.
Folds super easy and is lightweight.

Sierra Vista, AZ
July 20, 2015
I'm on kiddo #2, have had my fair share of strollers and I have finally found the one that comes as close to perfect as possible! I love how easy it navigates, opens and folds. The seat seems extremely comfortable, my one year old loves it. I LOVE how much shade the XL canopy provides. We live in Southern AZ, there is a lot of sun almost year round. Shade is essential to have for baby and with this stroller, I don't have to add another shading piece like I do with other strollers. The color is gorgeous and the pictures don't do it justice. I love how easy the hand brake works. I wasn't sure if I'd like it, I never had a stroller with a hand brake before but I love it. I'm 5"6 and the handle is perfect for my height. It adjusts up or down a little. I would definitely buy this again, but I'm pretty sure this will be my last stroller :-)
The only things I would change if I could:
I would make the belt straps detachable so you can turn it from a 5 point to a 3 point from the hip. My little one likes to sit up and lean forward, but the only way to let him to that in the Versa is to make the straps extremely long on top.
I definitely would add a parent tray. Yes, I can buy a little bag thingy that I can attach to the handle, but with my diaper bag hanging underneath, the "tray" bag then sits on top of my bag. My Eddie Bauer has a tray installed and I can still hang my diaper bag on the handle and reach in comfortably with enough space between the tray and the bag.
Because the seat is a separate piece and not a part of the actual stroller, if the seat is in a reclined position, the stroller doesn't fold as neatly. It will take me some getting used to and I have to actively remember to put the seat up before I fold the stroller to put it in the car.
San Antonio, Texas
My favorite stroller!
July 17, 2015
I just purchased a couple of days ago and received it very quickly, I assembled the stroller very quickly and easily, I tested out and discovered all the features and sat my 27 month old son for a neighborhood stroll, and he absolutely loved it so much that he refused to part with it after our walk! I am going to be leaving on an extended holiday and will definitely be taking the city versa on our trip. It is so stylish and very aesthetically pleasing, I love the color silver it really stands out amongst the crowd, and I know that I will be keeping this one for a long time for other siblings that may come along. My baby loves facing out to explore the world around him but when he starts to get tired he does not like to see anyone else other than his mama bear and papa bear, so that feature is another plus in my book for the city versa! I love the very generous canopy as well as the extra large basket under the carriage! I cannot stop saying how much I love this stroller! I will be ordering the GT wheels very soon for rougher terrain although I do not mind the wheels that the versa comes with since I tend to keep on smooth paved roads. I am 5'6 and my husband is 6'3 and we both find it very comfortable to navigate, our son is 39 inches tall and he weighs about 35 lbs he looks very comfortable with plenty of room to grow over the years.
Adjustable seat multiple reclining positions and plenty of wiggle room to grow, adjustable foot bed, forward and rear facing seat, generous canopy and extra large storage basket under carriage as well as extra pouch for storage behind seat, plus many more!
Everyday stroller, extended trips, amusement parks, and so on

Lots of research! Great stroller!
July 7, 2015
I researched a ton of strollers and I love the Versa! I looked a lot at the city select too but I wanted something with a little smaller footprint and I only have one child currently. My son didn't like riding in the stroller much before but does great in this one with the reversible seat! Ultimately I chose this stroller because of the reversible seat, storage compartment and the fact the seat folds up even when the seat is parent facing which it is always is with us! Great stroller, great price! MyFirst purchase through this site and very happy with the customer service and prompt delivery!!!
Reversible seat, folds with seat forward or reverse, great storage, adjustable handlebar, price!
Only for one child, tires ( I upgraded to the get tires)
July 5, 2015
This is the third stroller we bought for our son and by far the best, it's light and a breeze to push, I love how easy it is to go from sitting to laying down only using one hand. Being able to turn them around is also a big plus especially for the longer times they are in the stroller. The underneath storage is large and easy to access, though it would be nice to have cup/ phone holder on the handle.
At the current price listed.. you don't want to miss out!
June 17, 2015
We have had the Uppababy Vista for about 4 years and love the fact that you can attach a glider board, rotate the seat and push with ease. Unfortunately it takes up a ton of space and is really awkward and hard to fold. So I went in search of a better option for our second child. I think the Versa has many of the good things of the Vista (for about $400 less!) It pushes pretty easily but you can tell a notable difference when the basket is very full. The easy fold is amazing when running errands. While it is pretty heavy folding, its not unbearable. Good quality and amazing value at this sale price. I've recommended it to a couple friends. It's a great stroller if you want quality and some good features, but not a luxury stroller price. Don't hesitate
June 13, 2015
I am so happy with this purchase. My favorite feature is having the seat turned around so the baby can face me. Then when he is older he can face outward. The ride is smooth and the canopy covers very nicely. The basket underneath is very roomy, especially compared with my Bob. Another great feature is the brake on the side with a simple switch instead of a foot break. The shipping was very fast and I got a good deal on it!
Roomy, Smooth Ride, seat can face in or out, big basket

This is a great stroller, it's the second one we purchased...love the size and how many different ways the baby can sit. Also has a great undercarriage basket
June 12, 2015
This stroller is a dream. It turns and glides so easy. The basket is HUGE! I fit a travel rolling carry on bag in it. The seat is padded and comfortable for my 5 month old. Folds easily, although a bit heavy to lift into trunk. I have weak arms though. I'm so glad I bought this.
Can't wait to use it
June 11, 2015
Haven't used it with baby yet, but had my heart set on this stroller based on feedback from other mamas and wanted to order before stock runs out. Our 6 year old fits in it still (and he is tall!) and the push is still wonderful even with him in it.
