Having had a cheaper car seat, you get what you pay for with the Marathon
This carseat is easy to install, comfortable for my 40 lb 3 year old son, and it reclines the slightest bit for him so he can be comfortable while front facing. I highly recommend.
ProsEasy to clean fabric, comfortable neoprene-like fabric for the straps and crotch strap
ConsMcCoy fabric is slightly rough to the touch, but elegant and classy looking
