father of 4 impressed!

I feel that the Britax B-Safe car seat is an excelent choice! very sturdy construction. the fabric is thicker than most wich is a plus. the canopy is sturdy and stays up. there is a thick support bar inside of the front part of the canopy, most other car seats dont have such a strong support and other carseat canopys seem flimsey and made of cheap fabric. I also love the seatbelt buckle style anchors!!! they are a BIG plus especialy for dads like me with big hands! I dont have to shove my hand in the seat to clip the anchors in, like traditional anchors. I simply just find the anchor bar with one finger and the slide the carseat anchor buckle intoplace untill i hear and feel it click. undoing ithe base from the anchors is a breeze and im not straining or fighting the base to get it undone. adjusting the straps on the car seat is very simple! I thought about getting the other car seat with the adjustable straps with the slide on the back of the seat to save time, but then again your not changing the size of the straps that often so there was no point in spending the extra money. To my surprise, when i recieved the B-Safe car seat, I found that adjusting the strap positins and the ease of tightening and loosening the straps evenly was very easy and effortless! the sholder holes where the straps are fed through are wide and easy to get the straps through for adjusting the height of them, you dont have to strain to slide the end of the strap through. as far as the strap adjustment to tighten and loosen the straps, it is very simple and easy, you dont have to loosen one side then stop to give the other side more slack and then back to looseining again. Ive always struggled to keep the car seat adjustments the same untill my baby was big enough to have to re adjust the straps again. But with the Britax B-Safe car seat im able to loosen and tighten the straps with ease and simplicity and not have to feel like adjusting the straps is a hassel. over all this product is quality and I am very very happy with The Britax product line!
Pros:The seat belt buckle style base anchors!
the easy sholder height adjustment rethreading process.
the super easy tightening and loosening of the straps!
the fabric quality!
and the comfort of the seat. baby is happy.
