We've got this question so many times, it's time for a blog post! The Baby Jogger City Select has a beautiful fabric that is matte and very durable. When the City Versa (another popular Baby Jogger stroller) came out, they introduced a more exclusive fabric which has a higher denier and a shine to it. The City Select All Black and City Select Silver both feature this updated fabric. For 2014, the City Select Red and City Select Teal will have the exclusive fabric, while the other four colors, ruby, onyx, amethyst, and quartz will feature the regular fabric. There is no comfort difference in the two fabrics - both are really durable and well padded and very easy to clean.
