Excellent Car Seat!
May 14, 2013
In the short time we've had this car seat we've really enjoyed it! It's spacious, it installs easily, and it straps our child in securely. The cup holders are helpful as well. When my daughter falls asleep in it, her position is good, not like other car seats we've had, where the head flops down and bounces with every bump! She falls asleep and stays upright, with her head over to one side, leaning against the sides of the head support.
Pros:
Secure and easy installation; nice harness system, both comfortable and secure; spacious for the child; child is in good position when sleeping.
Cons:
quite large, takes up more space than average; quite deep, almost too deep for our car (2008 Prius).

Britax is the best

Britax has yet to let me down. This seat is great. This is our up-grade seat after our son outgrew our Marathon 65. I want to keep my son in a 5 point harness as long as possible and love the weight ranges. My son loves that this seat has cup holders.

our little man loves this one
April 24, 2013
chose this a safe seat for a child in the 97% size range for his age, however it is not as easy to install or insure the straps are correctly tightened as the Britax Boulevard 70CS. As a Grandmother - it's heavy to take in and out and move between vehicles. I would recommend it.
Pros:
safety for a tall child, cupholders
Cons:
tightening the harness correctly - doesn't click as it tightens like my other Britax

It looks huge when you first open it but once its in the car it seemed smaller than our Britax Marathon. My daughter loves it, seems super comfy, easy to install (used latch system). The cloth guard around the bottom buckle keeps coming off but other than that, no complaints. Planning to buy another when my son is old enough!

Love Britax!
April 15, 2013
This is a great seat. Britax always goes above and beyond. I have yet to take the seat cover off so I have had no problem with it slipping off. I think this happens when the elastics start to stretch out. I have had other seats with the same type of elastics that had this problem. I do think the armrests are a little short and in an awkward position to actually be useful. My biggest complaint would be that it is a very tight fit threading the seatbelt through the short belt path. My hand barely goes in and I am a very petite person. And the plastic around the hole is pretty sharp. I think the reason there aren't more reviews on this is that most people use LATCH. Other than that it's great. Seems super comfortable and has a great install. I feel that my daughter is safe and I love the limits this seat goes to. My daughter is 5 years old and 40 pounds and will continue to be harnessed for quite some time.
Cons:
Short belt path is too small for an adult hand to thread the seat belt.

Best booster you can find as Grandchildren transition towards adult lap/shoulder belts
March 14, 2013
Once you get the LATCH system down, Nanas (right and left clip into car's frame at spots marked on your seats for later model cars) and then incorporate the lap/shoulder belt, and then add the back harness belt (clips behind my back seat in a Volvo), NOTHIN is budging the child. Seat is wide and sturdy. If you buy one, you will only be able to fit TWO across the back (used at right and left windows) and you must separate them by one seat due to their width. The quality is excellent. The extra padding along the sides and back from cheaper seats is what got this Nana to buy one for my car and one for the tot's Mom and Dad as a gift. Really cool was the cup holder on each side. We don't put anything liquid in there for safety (you should have nothing that could fly about and hit a child when you drive) but we sometimes stuff in a soft toy or snack.
Pros:
EVERYTHING, INCLUDING ALBEE'S SWIFT AND RELIABLE SHIPPING RIGHT TO MY FRONT DOOR!
Cons:
Nothing.

Well worth it...
March 11, 2013
This carseat is so great. It is a little pricey for me but now that I have one I want to replace all my other carseats with more of these. We currently have 2 carseats in each car so that means I need 3 more. It looks so safe and my daughter looks so comfy in it that I'm questioning my love for my other child. Do I not love him enough to get him a carseat as safe as this one. Well yes I do of course...but he is 6 and already in a booster so I will have to do some research to see if it's less expensive to just get a plain booster model. I wouldn't worry about the size either because it fits like a glove in our Honda Fit.
Pros:
The huge side air cushion technology.

Once side Latch
February 26, 2013
I love Britax products for their dependability and safety ratings. However, part of the reason why I love Britax is the easy installation their latch systems allows. All of our car seats for our children have been by Britax. I really love this one, but I do not like the latch system in that it only pulls from one side as opposed to each side. As a result, the car seat is not as firmly installed as all the others. I could be doing something wrong, but I find it difficult to believe since we have never had to deal with this issue in the past.
Cons:
One side pull in the latch system

Great seat from a great company!
February 14, 2013
Love this seat. It installed easily, just as our Boulevards did. The only thing that makes me nervous is not having a seat belt lock-off on the seat. But it seems very sturdy, safe, and comfortable. My 5 year old loves his new big kid seat!
Pros:
Safe, comfortable, easy to install
Cons:
It is wider than most seats, but that wasn't a problem for the captains chairs in my minivan. There is no lock-off for the seat belt, which I'm sure is safe, but it makes me nervous.

Good booster seat w harness
January 15, 2013
Strong built booster carseat with harness, comfy although my 4 year old said he loves his Marathon / Advocate convertible more. If you want strong and safe seat, then got to give in the bulky wide factor. It's not a lot bigger than other booster seat that I bought. I chose this one for its safety features and harness (I bought one regular booster seat w/o harness and the over-shoulder strap keeps on sliding up my son's neck even though he's a very tall toddler, very unsafe in case of an accident). I am a little disappointed as Britax is known for making the best car seats (see my dislike comments). However, safety is my #1 so I still go for a Britax
Pros:
Strong sturdy construction, five point harness, good click sound and strong connection. Easy height adjustment.
Cons:
The straps keep on tangling, making it difficult for the kids to fasten by themselves. Tiny strap covers at the neck slide all the time, I wonder what their purpose was. The seat cover keeps coming off when my boy gets in and out, making it look very sloppy.

Very nice seat
December 26, 2012
We previously had 2 boulevards for our girls (age 3 and 5), but the 5 year old was nearing the hight limit, and we just wanted to get something to last them through their booster needs. I was a little dissapointed with the latch on this one, it is just one straps that feeds through, and the double straps on the boulevard was one thing that we absolutely love. That being said, my hubby still had no issues getting it nice and tight. My girls just look so much more comfortable in these seats, and they love their cup holders. This seat is HUGE...we have a crew cab Chevy truck, and we cannot put someone in the middle between them now, where we could with the boulevards. So, I imagine it would fill a smaller car.
Pros:
Comfy for the kids cup holders are great still fairly easy to install
Cons:
the single latch strap instead of double like other Britax seats very large, which could be an issue for some

We bought this for my 4.5 year old daughter who had been riding in the Marathon. We wanted her in a 5 point harness for as long as possible, but without the "height" of the Marathon. She was getting tall enough that climbing in and out of the Marathon was becoming rather awkward for her. She LOVES her new seat, my 2.5 year old does too! The cup holders are a huge plus and the extra cushion is too. We love that it will be her forever seat as she transitions from 5 pt to highback booster, to regular booster. We will probably buy one for our son in the near future as well.

I like the safety features of this carseat and with britax you can't go wrong. But the only problem and it's a very annoying problem is that the carseat cover pops off the bottom every time we put our child in the car. It is held on by two elastic straps and the straps don't stay connected.
Pros:
Safety
Cons:
Cover does not stay attached to bottom of seat.

This seat was a challenge to install the first time, but it is really great now. My twins love the cup holders and I love the great safety rating.
Pros:

Cons:
The chest buckle on one seat (I have two) is really hard to unfasten and the straps get twisted on occasion.

Great quality booster
March 12, 2012
Very happy with our purchase overall. It is very bulky like most reviews say but we have a Honda Odyssey minivan and its not all that noticeable once installed. If you need a booster for school field trips or planning to take on the plane, im not so sure this would be the best booster since it is so heavy and bulky. Im planning to get a smaller, lighter booster for those instances. My almost 4 year old likes his new cup holders and says he feels comfy in this booster. I feel like I've made the safest choice for my son with this booster especially with the 5 point harness and side impact protection.
Pros:
Side impact protection, 5 point harness, color, material, quality, cup holders.
Cons:
Bulky, heavy

We love britax. This makes our third carseat. The seats are very parent friendly and safety is a must for us in carseats. This seat is very roomy for my four year old. His legs also don't dangle like they did in the marathon seat. If you have a very small car this seat may pose an issue because it is kinda wide.
Pros:
Safety Roomy Comfort Cup holders
Cons:
The width is ok in my car but may be an issue for a small car The height adjustment is kinda hard to get to once seat is installed

Seems like a good investment
January 20, 2012
My toddler loves this seat! She is only 2.5yrs, but as tall as a short 4 year old... so we really have a difficult time shopping for her regarding items like this. We loved the extra protection that it offered that other car seats did not, that the 5 point belt harness went higher than many brands, and that overall it seems very safe. My only concern is that, as handy as the 2 cup holders are for my little one, it makes the seat a little wide at the bottom... Ironically, the extra wide top does not seem to be a seating problem, however. It should be noted that we have a more narrow car, so this is probably not a problem for many of you.
Pros:
Seems really safe, and was a good competitive price
Cons:
For our smaller car, the second luxury cup holder, took up precious inches in our back seating area.

My 4 y/o daughter was really wanting to switch over to a booster seat. As soon as she hit 40 pounds, we made the switch from her Britax Boulevard. I will only buy Britax and we went with the SICT for the added safety.
Cons:
I don't like how the booster doesn't seem to sit right on my SUV seats. I have a Yukon XL. The angle of the back of the booster seems to be the issue even when I try to adjust the seat backs in my Yukon. I'm going to get it checked out at a safety station to make sure its ok the way its installed.

Excellent car seat
December 29, 2011
This product was recommended as the top car seat by a group for child safety who had a display of various car seats at the grand opening of Lego Land. I ordered two from Albee, it was very easy to order and they arrived by mail within two or three days. They were super easy to install. We upgraded from the Britax roundabout, and had outgrown them. My two sons, ages 4 and 5 love them. My only complaint is I have a hard time pushing in the lever that loosens the straps. The roundabout had a button that was easy to push. This seat makes it more challenging, but probably so that the child cannot access the lever to loosen his own seat.

Great seat.
December 25, 2011
I know car seats. Two children. I've owned 2 infant car seats, three previous models of convertable seats...all purchased after research on Consumer reports. This is a very good seat. The best I could find in the market and I did the research. Being able to keep my kids in 5 point restraint up to 85 lbs and 57 inches makes my children safer. I was getting ready to convert my 7 year old daughter's seat to a booster seat, as she was almost too tall for the harnesses. Purchased these seats the week after being rear ended at stop light by driver surfing the internet on her phone and hit us at 35+ mph. Paramedics said if my kids where not in 5 point harnesses, they would have been on their way to the ER. They see it all the time. Both got out and played after the shock wore off. Next week a friend was t-boned and her daughter of the same age was taken to the ER with internal injuries from sliding under the seat belt and seat belt tore into her abdomon. She was in a booster seat and the booster seat back broke. So, my kids understand why they will not be in booster seats like their friends. These seats are solid and heavy. Rated to hold a kid up to 85 lbs in the harness, which means they can hold my kids at higher forces than their previous seats, which had to be thrown out after the impact of the collision. Seat are like helmets, they are only good for one impact.
Pros:
Best seat on the market. Quality materials. Easy to clean seat covers, they come off easily without having to disassemble anything. Easily adjusted while seat is installed, so as kids get taller, the seat can be easlily heightened. This seat will keep an average kid in a five point harness through 10 or 11 years old and then be a solid booster up through 120 lbs (way past what I need it to do). If your kid is in a booster seat, you are unwittingly (or wittingly) commiting child endangerment like our parents who left us to play in the back seat of the car without even a seat belt. My young children move around too much in a booster seat to be in the correct seated position for a collision. The five point harness keeps them seated correctly. The difference could be life altering.
Cons:
The SICT stands for Side Impact Cushion Technolgy. Basically two inflated tough air bags on the side of the seats. I am barely able to fit the two seats side by side in my two passenger minivan bench seat. The bags in the middle have to be squeezed together to fit into the seat together. Up side, the bags are solid and may save their lives. Downside, installation is trickier with two passenger bench seats in minivans. Should be fine in three passenger bench seats and captain chair type seats.

I purchased this car seat for my grandson when my daughter wanted to put him in a booster seat type system. I was not impressed by the other booster seats out there. This seat has good protection on the sides and the 5 point harness but can convert to the seat belt option when he is older. It is our second Britax car seat and I am very pleased with the quality and ease of use. Of course, what sold me on the Britax was the safety rating. Price at Albee Baby was the best I found and it was delivered to my door in a very short time and in perfect condition. Albee Baby is my first choice in buying for baby online.
Pros:
5 point belt system, side protection, size, comfort, nice looking, safety rating, ease of use.

Super easy install, big, heavy and tall, perfect, if it were small, light and short, I would worry. He loves his big boy car seat, with not one but two cup holders, I love knowing that he is in the safest seat. I also love the price here and the no tax and free shipping, its cheaper than going to a baby store locally and having to pay full price and tax, not to mention convenient since its shipped to your home.
