Help me decide Nipper 360 or Baby Jogger City Classic

I am trying to get myself down to 1 buggy so I need it to do everything. I think I have narrowed it down to either the Nipper or the BJCC but can't quite decide between the 2.

I already have a fixed wheel nipper which both DP and I love, but we tend not to use it for shopping as the fixed wheel means the turning circle is rather large so we struggle in certain shops. We also love it for it's lightnest and it's flat fold which I think works best for us with regards to boot space.

We also have a Maclaren XT which we use for shopping. DH likes it as he can have the handles really high, I bought the bumper bar which ds2 loves, but I just don't really like it. I find I can't fit much in the basket, and because of the length when folded it has to go diagnonally in our boot which affects how much shopping you can get in.

So BJCC looks like it has a bigger seat than the nipper and it has an adjustable handle which can be higher than the Nipper (although DH doesn't seem to mind the handle height of the fixed wheel nipper), but the BJCC is 3kgs heavier than the Nipper (although still lighter than other 3 wheelers). So what should I get?

I can buy new (as sold stuff on ebay to fund a washing machine emergency and made more than I thought I would) and obviously will sell my fixed wheel nipper and Maclaren therefore ofsetting more of the cost of the new pushchair.

Sorry for the epic essay, but can't make a mistake as I have promised DP that we will be a 1 pushchair household (after 2 years of constant buggy changing).

Hi, I have a similar decision to make at the mo - altho I have a lil toddler and will soon have a new born. I just wanted to reply to let you know that snowflakes in weymouth (if you google them) have the double nipper 360 in the sale at the moment

Thanks sillysow will look them up, but I only need a single. Buggy decisions are really difficult aren't they!

That's a tough choice. I haven't seen either folded to compare the size to.

I think I would go for the BJCC as I'm a baby jogger fan.
