Nice, but a little claustrophobic
June 18, 2012
I got this to replace an old Britax Roundabout that will soon expire. The Boulevard 70 is as easy to install as the Roundabout, and I like the higher weight ranges for this new seat. It seems very cushy and comfortable for my son, who is 15 months old. The minor drawbacks that I have found are that with this seat rear-facing, it is a bit claustrophobic. The wings on the headrest wrap around his face somewhat, and it is hard for him to see around it, sometimes making him frustrated. There are also, in my opinion, too many strap covers on this seat. I had to remove one set because I was unable to properly tighten the straps. Overall though, it is a good investment and a very nice seat, and I can certainly deal with these minor irritations for seat that I know will be safe for a long time.
Pros:Easy to install
Cons:Cushions obstruct view
Too many strap covers
