Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat in Cowmooflage

Item # E9BB11Q

    The MARATHON™ 70 achieves revolutionary head safety through the use of BRITAX SafeCell™ Technology, Integrated Steel Bars, and Versa-Tether® that work together to minimize head excursion and reduce the risk of head injury during a frontal impact.

    Rear-Facing 5 – 40 lbs, a standing height of 49 inches or less and seated shoulder height of 9 – 16.75 inches.
    Forward-Facing 1 year & 20, up to 70 lbs, a standing height of 49 inches or less and a seat shoulder height of 12 – 16.75 inches.

    SafeCell™ Technologyfeatures SafeCells designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat

    Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash

    Patented, Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tetherfeatures a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat

    360 Degree Protection Features
  • Side Impact Protection comprised of deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body
  • Tangle-Free, Five-Point Harness distributes crash forces across the strongest parts of the body and provides a secure fit
  • Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™) provides resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash
    Superior Fit and Comfort Features
  • 70-pound Weight Capacity for safety and comfort as your child grows
  • Rear and Forward Facing Recline for child comfort and positioning
  • High Density Comfort Foam provides an extra layer of padding to gently cushion your child
  • Plush, Easy-Remove Cover with matching comfort pads and infant body pillow to provide extra comfort and easy cleaning without disassembling or uninstalling the child seat
  • Two Buckle Positions for your growing child
  • Infant Positioning Insert may be necessary for small infants to achieve a snug fit of the harness around your child (sold separately)
    Superior Ease-of-Use Features
  • Quick-Adjust Harness repositions the harness shoulder height without disassembling the harness straps
  • Premium Lower LATCH Connectors for a quick and simple installation featuring a push button for easy release
  • Built-in Lock-Offs ensure a snug lap and shoulder belt installation with minimal effort

Car Seat - Gift for Grandchild
January 7, 2013
The car seat was bought for my grandchild so I do not use the product but my son thinks it is an excellent product. He discussed with a friend and then read reviews on it and told me which one to order.
Pros:
Happy with item - very safe and reliable

Mootastic!
December 20, 2012
I bought this car seat for my granddaughter as I had purchased one for her brother a year ago. We love this car seat! Both children are not only comfortable in the adjustable seat, but it's reassuring to know they are well protected! It has a firm, secure fit in the car whether it's facing outward or inward. The safety harness is easily adjustable, but definitely child-proof! Love, love, this car seat!
Pros:
durability, playful cow motif secure fit good strong clasp
Cons:
harness can be difficult to unsnap for these old hands

Pros:
Safety features; cow-print fabric; cushioning; ease of installation
Cons:
Nothing

Second to none!!
August 11, 2012
This is by far the best car seat money can buy. I love that it can recline for long trips or for rear facing use. Also the belt adjustment is great because you don't have to remove the seat from the car. Most car seats just have three positions too, not this one you can just slide the lever to adjust the belt height to your growing child. I love the side impact protection. We've not been in an accident with it but the sides are extra wide for side impact protection. The cute cow print is perfect for my little girl who loves the zoo!

Britax Marathon (Cowmooflage)
June 21, 2012
This car seat is totally perfect. Comfortable, great safety features, perfect sized (not too big like the Boulevard) head protection/side guards, adorable cowmooflage print, etc. We call it the "Moomoo seat" :)
Pros:
All of it!
Cons:
Nothing to dislike

Love this car seat!
June 15, 2012
This is our second Britax marathon as we loved the first one so much for our oldest, that we got another one for our new addition. The upgrade of the seat to the adjustable harness is wonderful as that was about the only downside to the original, as on that one we have to take the straps out and adjust as our son grows. Another change is how deep the seat is and how far around the side impact protectors extend. I do agree that the new deeper design makes it a tad more difficult to get a baby in and out of the seat while in the rear-facing position but what's a few extra seconds when it comes to safety of our most precious cargo. The seat is big and bulky so parents with a smaller vehicle may want to consider using the measurements and comparing them to the space available in your vehicle to ensure a good fit (especially in the rear-facing mode). The cowmooflage print is so adorable...we have the same pattern for both our son and our daughter. This is a perfect 'grow' with your child seat. Albee Baby has been a pleasure...great prices, fast shipping...all around positive experience.
Pros:
The safety rating; good padding and support; the adjustable harness; the ability to 'grow' with your child; the pattern of the seat is super cute
Cons:
The only cons here may be the size of the seat may prevent it from fitting into smaller vehicles...look at the measurements.

Great Seat
May 15, 2012
We already have 2 Britax seats, bought this for a third car. Been happy with all three - easy to use, comfortable for the kid, cute patterns, washable. They are big and heavy, but if it keeps my baby safe I don't mind. Have one seat each in a Honda Accord, Honda Fit, & Dodge Charger and they fit just fine, still room in front and on the sides. Would totally buy more of these if necessary in the future.
Pros:
cute patterns, good crash rating, easy to use
Cons:
padding makes child a little hot

Dream Carseat Lives up to Hype
April 25, 2012
I wanted a Britax for my first daughter 10 years ago, but could not afford one. With my newest addition, I went ahead and splurged! Am a very impressed with how sturdy this seat is! It doesn't move AT ALL! It is also deep, which is comforting knowing that if we are ever in an accident (touch wood), she would be well protected/cushioned against any blows. The only strange this are these velcro tabs on the seat belt. I suppose they are to keep the seat belt attached to the sides so you don't have to "dig" behind you child to find the straps. However, they are right where my daughter puts her arms and because it is velcro and she has baby skin, she gets a little scratched by them. While I appreciate the idea behind them being there, I think they are not placed good or could be made differently. I am not a car seat engineer, so I'm not sure what else they could use. I love the pattern so much. It is so unique. I always see Britax seats for girls that are pink. This just seems quirkier! Since we live in Texas, it's a good fit too! LOL! I think buying quality is important when it comes to safety items like this. It is worth every penny. Albee baby also was a great site! Shipping was fast and efficient and I can't believe the deal we got on this! Definately a favorite site!
Pros:
Feels VERY secure. Does not budge. Deep sides for extra protection in case of accident. Soft fabric. Cute pattern. Belt buckle is very easy and secure.
Cons:
Velcro on seat belt irritates baby's sensitive skin.

Best car seat ever
April 23, 2012
I bought this for my 1 year old son and cannot say enough good things about it! Easy to use, and install! I'm using it rear-facing and it seems to be in my car tighter than the infant at seat was. I love the new strap adjuster! It's so much easier to use. Just slide the adjuster up or down. I love this car seat and highly recommend it!
Pros:
Easy to use Super-easy strap adjuster Easy to install

Perfect fit!
April 18, 2012
We have a 2yr old and a 1 yr old. They are both girls and they are shaped extremely different. Myah is tall and skinny and Emma is short and chubby. We purchased 2 of these car seats and I love them! They work well for their different sizes, and ofcourse the design is adorable!
Pros:
Adjustable shoulder straps!

cumbersome
April 13, 2012
Overall, I am pleased with the new model. However, one aspect of its improvement makes it very cumbersome to put baby in and out of the chair. It's deep seating is ideal for safety reasons, but I wish it was a little easier for my small stature(short arms) for me to put baby in and out.

Lives up to the hype
March 30, 2012
Couldn't be happier with this carseat. The fabric is soft and plush, the cowmooflage print hides dirt and stains and it is easy to install. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the shoulder straps get twisted despite the Velcro holders.
Pros:
Safety features, plush fabric and easy to install.
Cons:
Shoulder straps get twisted making it frustrating to get toddler in quickly.

perfect and easy to use
February 20, 2012
I upgraded to this car seat from a Graco and I will never go back. My baby is bigger than average and it was nice that I could easily adjust the straps depending on how many layers of clothing he is wearing, before I had to keep him coatless in the graco or flip the whole thing over to readjust the straps. He loves being in his seat now and doesn't feel cramped. The hardest part for me was figuring out how to put the seat in the 45 degree angle for rear facing, although my husband got it in 5 seconds!

I love this carseat. It is very easy to install, wash, and best of all the straps do not get all twisted up. This will be the only brand of convertable carseats that I will ever use.

Just what my family wanted!
January 18, 2012
This item was received in a very short amount of time during the holiday rush and was exactly what my daughter and her husband wanted for their little one's car seat. In fact, they plan to purchase a second for their other vehicle! I would recommend that they purchase from Albee Baby for the price and good service.
Pros:
It is exactly as pictured and has all of the safety features that are so important to keep a baby safe.
Cons:
It is large so if you have two children, you cannot fit a third person in the back seat with two car seats, even in a full size vehicle.

Great car seat
December 29, 2011
My daughter, who is really small for her age, was still fitting into her infant car seat at 14 months, but she screamed every time I put her in it. She was ready to graduate to the car seat that she'll have for the next few years. She loves it! She no longer fights me to get into the seat and also loves to nap in the car. At 18 months she's still facing backwards (only 18 lbs) but seems happy with it. Love the Cowmooflage fabric as well. Totally fun.
Pros:
Easy to buckle in to any car - quick switch from cars. Also super comfy for my girl.
Cons:
It's a little tight getting into the car seat facing backwards in our SUV. I tried it in a sedan and it was much easier. Shouldn't be a problem for long as she'll be facing forward soon.
