    Default Hipod I-fold vs Baby Jogger City Mini

    Thank you for helping us narrow down to these two prams from the last thread. We are going to go and have a look at both of them tomorrow but was just wondering if anyone else had anything to comment on in regards to either pram.

    The prices I've found for them at present are $230 for the Hipod and $369 for the BJC Mini.

    I found the hipod an awesome pram with no problems and a great price!! Never owned a city mini though I cant see there being much of a difference besides the colours and price

    not 100% sure but I think the bjcm material is better...? and resale bjcm would be better.

    I was wondering about fabric differences. Ideally I'd love the gt version but not for the extra hundreds of dollars...and it costs just as much as our first big pram!

    Hipod is the older design of baby jogger - they buy the old designs and make them cheaper. I would guess fabric might be a bit cheaper too. But I have heard hipod are still great prams for the price

    Hipod is actually the britax b-agile and all of the steelcraft agile accessories fit it.
    When I called britax to order capsule adapters, they confirmed it and also said they don't advertise that it's capsule compatible so that the steelcraft agile is still in front, marketing wise.

    I'm not sure about the fabric difference but I have no issues with the fabric on the ifold.

    I knew it was another big brand - good to know.

    Yes I bought the agile plus because of this and was disappointed to find the hipod ifold takes the same adaptors too as it could have saved me $300 with money being ok at that point it didnt really matter but I could have used it elsewhere too
