Doesn't release easily from the base!
April 23, 2023
This car seat is fantastic except it regularly gets "stuck" in the base and won't release. I have to try multiple times before it fully releases. It's very frustrating! Two stars because it works as a car seat, but I would not recommend it.
Pros
  • Safe, stylish
Cons
  • Heavy and gets stuck in the base regularly

Worth It!
September 18, 2022
I have gotten all Britax for my kids and I love the brand. I love that I can see the great changes/adjustments made to better suit babies. My oldest is 7 1/2 and I can see the difference between her travel system to my 5th baby recently born. This Gen 2 is bigger and more roomy. It has nice patterns available. It’s easier to put in our SUV. I am happy with this. Loved that it was compatible with the stroller we bought in 2020 for my other baby.

Love Britax and Albee
September 6, 2022
I'm so glad that I found this website! Albee customer service has been great to work with. I was worried that this site was not legitimate, and it most definitely is. I received a response back quickly for any questions and concerns that I had. The car seat that we ordered came quickly and in perfect condition. We've only ever owned Britax carseats, so we were happy to find out we could purchase this brand on this website. It has been 10 years since we've ordered a new car seat and the new version is very nice, sleek, and has major upgrades from 10 years ago. Britax is definitely worth the money spent.
Pros
  • Great safe brand
  • quality
  • sleek design
Cons
  • heavy

I love everything about this seat. It’s easy to install, not too heavy to carry, and the fabric is great. It’s soft and comfortable for baby. The black awning keeps the sun off of baby’s sensitive skin.

  • Infant car seat

Amazing features!
March 2, 2022
I bought this car seat for my newborn because a family member recommended it. Needless to say, I absolutely love it! This car seat is very heavy duty, which makes me feel more comfortable when driving. It is also very sleek and comfortable for my baby to sit in, as well as the amazing sun shade. I highly recommend this product!!

Great quality seat however it is very heavy, difficult to adjust and doesn't seem very comfortable for baby. The bottom buckle doesn't adjust which is very tight and the head piece doesn't provide much support for an infant.

Safety and comfort
May 5, 2021
I like the improvements and thoughtfulness put into this infant seat!
It seems roomier for baby but the rounder design makes it less bulky (and pleasing to the eyes!)
Baby is super content when in the car seat and even falls asleep easily.
The fabric is soft to touch and no more tag rubbing on the back of baby's head!
My favorite feature is the fact that it has steel frame complemented by the steel base, giving me peace of mind!
I was pleasantly surprised how light it is considering the steel frame.
Even installing without the base feels safe with the European belt guide and much easier! Adjusting harness was easy as well. I also like how big the sun shade is.
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant seat!

Safe & Functional, Easy to use.
May 4, 2021
I received the Britax B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit as a part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. My first impression was good- I liked the sturdiness of the base and the depth of the seat made me feel like my baby would be safe in the car. The fabrics are breathable and easy to clean (even machine wash!), and feel like they will be cool even in warmer weather. Installing the base in the car (a VW Atlas) was quick and easy, and clicking the seat in and out of the base was a breeze, as well. We also tried it in my husbands car without a base and this was very convenient and easy, although the base definitely makes me feel more safe! It was very easy to adjust the harness and head rest, and the shape of the handle makes it easy to carry. There were two things I didn't love- the cow print was not my favorite and I felt like the seat could have had more padding or cushion between the fabric and the hard plastic of the seat to make it a little more comfortable for baby. Overall, for the price point it falls in, I think this seat and base are great. I will most likely be finding a liner to add a little more padding, but other than that, I am happy with the seat! I'd definitely consider the brand in the future.

comfy and safe infant carseat
May 3, 2021
I received the Britax B-Safe Gen 2 Flexfit through Stellar Product Testing Panel. This carseat was easy to adjust to fit my 3 month old baby. My daughter looked very cozy in her new carseat. I especially liked the luxurious fabric and headrest.
I feel like the carseat is heavier than other infant carseats that I have used in the past and the sunshade could be larger or easier to pull over babies head. The shade kept getting stuck on the handle bar. Overall great carseat, very easy to adjust the harness and install in car.

Well Made !
May 3, 2021
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this travel system. This is a really well made Travel System. Very strong frame and rubber wheels. Was able to put together in under 5 minutes. Stylish and rides really smooth. I really like how it has many pockets in different areas of the stroller. It has two mesh pockets on either side of child's seat so toddler can tuck away their water bottle, snacks etc.. For the parent it has a convinient storage area just bellow the handle bar. Two large open pockets that actually can fit a couple of water bottles and baby bottles.  I would not try having an open cup since it is not an actual cup tray. It also has a large zipper pocket to stash your phone, wallet, diaper whatever you like to bring with you. The storage basket under the seat is very spacious, it too has two little zipper pockets! Stroller seat reclines almost flat. Nice for those longer strolls. Stroller comes with two attachments for its infant carseat. They are easy to pop on/off and can be left attached without it interfering with the closing of the stroller.
Baby looks nice and snug in the infant carseat! The super cool part of the infant seat is the super easy harness adjustment!!! Has six levels for the height . A button in the back helps adjust it moving it up and down without needing to re-thread the harness in infant seat. The base has the LATCH attachments, makes it super easy to install in your car. Excellent travel system that will grow with baby !

Fantastic car seat, great new features
May 3, 2021
Wow! What a pleasant surprise. I've used a couple Britax carseats in the past, and to be honest, I thought they were mediocre. Nothing special but they got the job done. That said, I love this new Britax B-Safe Gen 2 FlexFit car seat.

The material is very soft, high quality, and I love that the fabric on the huge canopy has a UPF 50 rating. The vent in the canopy is great for airflow and for checking in on my little one. The material has been easy to spot clean and still looks new after a few weeks.

One of my favorite things on the car seat is the no-rethread harness. This is my first experience with this feature and I just love it. I never thought the standard rethreading process was that big of a deal but to be able to adjust the shoulder strap height (and the head cushion height) easily with one hand, well that's a game changer.

As far as downsides, I do wish the installation of the car seat base was a little easier. It's the same process as other Britax models, so nothing new here. Having to pull on the two individual latch straps to get a tight fit is kind of a pain. I wish Britax put as much thought into the base as they do the car seat. The car seat also feels a little heavy. Yes, it feels sturdy and safe, and has a ton of great features but it'd be really nice if it weighed a couple pounds less.

All in all, I think this is a fantastic car seat. Installation of the base aside, this is a great product that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to someone in the market. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this car seat to review.

Easy to use with great storage space
May 3, 2021
This travel system, which I received as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, is a great fit for both my 2.5-year-old and my 6-week-old. I regret not having had it when my first child was an infant. The car seat/carrier is so easy to snap into the stroller and allows me to move my newborn without having to wake her up by taking her out; and when the car seat is in the base in the car, my toddler likes to go for rides in the stroller. The base feels more secure with the anti-rebound bar, but the car seat is compatible with other Britax bases, and I was happy that there is an adapter for my running stroller as well. The B-Free stroller is much, much lighter than my running stroller, which is really important for me when I need to load and unload it in my car because I had a c-section this time. The stroller fits in the trunk of my car with plenty of room to spare and it is very easy to fold and unfold with one hand. The storage in the stroller is surprisingly roomy. I can fit a full packed diaper bag, or a half a toddler (trust me) in the storage basket beneath the seat. The storage pouches near the handlebars hold more than I expected too. There isn't a cup holder if you need a space for lattes (and I believe you can buy a stroller organizer separately) but a water bottle will fit right in. The handlebars are easy to adjust, and my toddler loves that he can reach them on the lower settings and help me push his baby sister! The stroller handles really well because of its 3-wheel configuration, and it a lot easier to steer than my umbrella stroller. The ride isn't quite as smooth as a running stroller, but it doesn't have to be because I'm not taking it off road, and the trade off for decreased weight and extra storage capacity is more than worth it. I'm so happy with this travel system. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in a double. Please make it happen, Britax!

Best car seat!
May 3, 2021
I received this car seat via the stellar product testing panel! I was so surprised with how fast I fell in love with it! My favorite feature was the no rethread harness that was easily accessible in the back of the car seat. It was so easy to install with and without the base and it took seconds to switch from car to car. I felt very confident with all the extra safety features that my baby was safe and comfortable in this car seat!

Stellar Stroller, Subpar Carseat
May 3, 2021
The Britax B-Free and B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit Plus Travel System is a system that strives to be a travel system to meet all your needs from birth through preschool. However, I found that in trying to do it all, it fell short of working well. Having a newborn and 2-year-old, I tested this product as part of the Stellar Parent Panel.

The carseat: the carseat is heavy duty. It's made of durable materials which makes it very safe but also makes the carseat difficult to carry. It's much heavier than other carseats that are designed to be removed from the car. I found this to be bulky for a newborn. The weight is more in line with the type of carseat that stays in the car permanently,  but is designed more for an infant. My toddler was very large in this carseat and didn't fit well. It's an odd design as it's made to do all for both ages but is shaped more for newborn but too heavy to maneuver newborn in the seat outside of the car. If you just want to pop the seat into the stroller, then no problem.

The carseat base: the base is amazing. It is very easy install and remove. Much easier than other car seats. It's also heavy, but this is no problem since it stays in the car.

The stroller: I absolutely love the stroller. I wish I could write separate reviews. The stroller glides so well and is easy to manuever. It has amazing sun coverage. When the car seat is used rear-facing, the baby can be completely covered from the sun and even has some mesh netting to keep cool and see baby. While there aren't obvious cup holder, there are several storage pockets that are deep and can be used to hold cups, keys, phones, etc. There also is ample storage underneath (we bring a backpack which fits). It easily collapses to fit in the trunk for outings and easily connects with the car seat. For toddler, the seat can be adjusted to seat a toddler in a reclined postion. It wasn't the most comfortable (I couldn't pull the straps to be completely upright) for toddlers. I also wish it would have had a cupholder and snack bar as my toddler brings a beverage on all of our outings. In terms of storage, it easily collapses but doesn't stand upright. If you are keeping it in your trunk, it will work well, otherwise you will have to carefully lean it against the wall.

The Maunuals: The manual for stroller and the installation were the best and easiest I've ever seen. Very easy to understand, and I put it together in 5 minutes. The carseat manual was not well organized, and I had some difficulty in finding what I needed in this manual.

Safety First!
May 1, 2021
We received this car seat as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and were super impressed with so many of its features! First, as with all the Britax products we've tried the safety features on this car seat are top notch. The steel reinforced seat and base give such peace of mind when you're putting your tiny baby into the car. The seat with baby in tow is a little on the heavy side but not unmanageable. The actual installation of the car seat was simple and very straightforward. I appreciate the indicators and also the click so we knew everything was in place. The harness and headrest were also really simple to adjust, and baby seemed totally comfortable during longer rides. The seat was roomy while also feeling snug and safe. I loved how soft and smooth the fabric is and it's all machine washable so it will be super easy to clean after inevitable blowouts. This is a sleek looking seat with all the top of the line safety features you need for car rides with a little one!

Super cute design
April 30, 2021
Thanks Stellar product testing panel for sending me this travel system to try! It is beyond my expectations! I love this travel system. I installed the base and the car seat into my car with no problem. I used the base but I haven't tried using it without the base. Though i love the grooves that allow the seat belt to go through without a base! The stroller rolls so smooth! The stroller folds down easy. Everything about this travel system I love! The storage is amazing! The Bottom of the stroller opens up with just a quick lift and it's so easy to grab anything from under the stroller! I can not say enough good things about this car seat and stroller combo. I had my 4 year old sit in the stroller and he fits so I definitely willl use this for years to come with my 4 month old. My favorite feature of this travel system is how easy it is to use it from a car seat to a stroller. It's super easy to use the stroller with or with out the car seat. My baby loves being able to look up and peek at me when he is in the stroller! I have already been telling all of my new mom friends about it. It has a sleek black design and its definitely gender neutral.

The quality of the britax b safe gen 2 is AMAZING! I love that it's simple
And sleek, And very stylish and soft. My baby loved going on car rides and being in it when we ran errands. He seemed fairly comfortable and fresh in the car seat. Which is always a good things when running errands when it's warmer outside. The installation process was also quick and easy. My favorite part about the car seat was the headrest! It's i like anything I've ever seen. It gave me peace of mind that my baby was safe while riding in it. I'm glad I was lucky to receive the car seat to test and review from the the stellar testing panel! This was such an awesome Car seat!

Amazing travel system
April 30, 2021
I don't think I've been this excited about a stroller and car seat system. The quality is amazing and I feel so safe with my babies in it. The car seat is so cozy and I love all the extra padding. The safety features are amazing. The rebound bar makes me feel even more at ease with my baby in this seat in our car. I love the stroller as well. It was easy to put together and easy to switch from the car seat to toddler seat, which is helpful with my two children. When the car seat is on the stroller, it does feel a bit heavy but it definitely rides smooth and the one hand close makes it so easy to use. So far I've used it around town, getting in and out of my car a lot and I've used it for light jogs on cement. I've loved using this stroller for both activities and I know it will get a lot of use with our family! Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for gifting us this travel system to review.

Super cute and easy to use!
April 30, 2021
First off- have you seen the pattern?! It's amazing!! Super cute cow black and white pattern really caught my eye when I first received this car seat! Right off the bat, I knew this car seat was going to be better than most I have used or tried thus far!

I received this product as part of the stellar product testing panel, in return, I have used the car seat, with and without the base and it works great either way!

Let's talk about the bucket seat first. It is extremely lightweight with a contoured handle, which makes it easy for carrying around. There are 3 positions to put the handle, which is really nice depending on what your doing! I love that you can put the handle all the way forward, that way you can add toys and they are not hitting baby in the face! I've had that problem with several other car seat handles that I have tried'Äî and when you have a fussy baby, those toys make such a difference! The canopy pulls far forward, almost being able to cover the entire seat! We brought this car seat to Florida with us, and that feature was super helpful when it rained, but you didn't want to put a cover over the seat itself because the weather was too warm. The canopy is a lightweight material and is sturdy, even for those windy days!

My husbands favorite part of this seat is the fact that you don't have to take the straps out (in the back) to adjust the shoulder height (harness) like most other car seats! When I had him play with the seat to see what he thought, that was one of his favorite features because I always make him adjust those! The material'Äî TOP NOTCH! I wish I purchased a car seat with this material with my first child! It's super soft, easy to wipe up and so easy to wash! There are 2 extra cushions (that can be removed if needed) that are soft and give extra cushion for those really little ones! The "pillow" around the head is perfect for their little necks when they fall asleep!

Overall, I do not have anything negative to say about this seat, except that I wish I purchased one of these sooner!

Very versatile!
April 30, 2021
I absolutely love this travel system!! Britax not only has safety in mind, but style as well. I currently only had a double stroller and thought I didn't need a single. Boy was I wrong! I am loving using this for one child and wearing the other. This stroller has amazing features; adjustable handle, pop up in front to access the basket, able to attach car seat easily. I not only was able to use comfortably with the car seat, but my 6 month old sat well without it, as well as my 2.5 year old. He loved being able to look up and see me through the mesh canopy window on our walk. The car seat was very easy to install with the base. As well as without the base in my daughters car. My absolute favorite part of this stroller is the one hand closure!! Thank you to the stellar parent panel for providing me with this travel system.

Awesome travel sustem

Loved this travel system. Stroller is very maneuverable and the ease of adjusting the straps in the infant seat is phenomenal. Install without the base is easy, but was a bit difficult to install in my older vehicle. I received this product as part of the Stellar product testing panel, but we have always loved our britax products and the safety features in this iznfant seat are second to none.

Everything I needed and more!
April 30, 2021
I absolutely love this carseat! Thank you Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this car seat to review! I have a Britax convertible seat for my toddler so I was excited to try Britax for my 7 week old. I feel so much more comfortable knowing that this carseat has a steel reinforced frame. I also love how easy it was to install both with the base and without! It took my husband forever to install the base from our previous infant seat but Britax made this one foolproof! Installing without the base was super easy and I love euro routing. It makes it so easy to get it tight against the seat. The no retread harness is great. I hated taking apart my previous seat to move straps so this was a perfect change of pace. My favorite feature of this seat is how plush and comfortable it is. My son screamed the whole time he was in his previous carseat but he loves the Brtiax B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit. He is all smiles while he is in it. I would recommend this seat to anyone who is in the market.

Comfy car seat
April 30, 2021
My son hated his previous car seat. This one he loves as it has more padding so it's a lot more comfy for him. It is so easy to connect and disconnect from the base and to the stroller. It works great in our other vehicle without the base as well. My favorite part of the car seat is how easy it is to adjust the 5 point harness. The stroller is wonderful, it turns so easily and has plenty of storage. My son will definitely be able to use it far into toddler years. Cons on car seat is that it doesn't work in the top of a shopping cart and it's super heavy. Cons of the stroller is there are no cup holders or tray for when your child is a toddler. However you can buy the attachments but I know it's already expensive to buy this system and then to throw more money at it for attachments is ridiculous. Thanks to Stellar Product testing for providing me with this to test and keep for free.

Very cute and easy to use car seat
April 30, 2021
Thank you to Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this infant car seat! This car seat is very easy to use and install into the car. It can be installed with the latches which is how I personally use it and it can also be used without a base which I thought was really unique.I really like the center latch on the base because it makes it really easy to tighten the base to seat. I really love how you can adjust the car seat harness with just pushing two buttons in the back rather then having to thread the harness through the slots. The canopy has a 50 spf which is amazing and it's thin so it helps circulate air in the back seat of the car which is a plus! The car seat itself is so cute and I always get compliments on the cow print every time I go out. I do feel like this car seat is a little on the heavier side. I have a big 6 month old and I have a really hard time carrying him in the car seat because of how heavy it is but overall I would recommend this infant seat.

Easy to install and super comfortable
April 29, 2021
After having 6 kids, I always cringed at having to install their infant car seat into the car. However, after I was given this infant car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel that will never be a problem again. This seat has an easy to install car seat base that took less than 5 mins to accurately and correctly install in the car. However, after I was given this infant car seat to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel that will never be a problem again. Add in the easy to adjust harness, comfort grip handle, large SPF proof canopy with a peak through window, and the super soft easy to clean fabric this car seat is an overall win. The only con's that I have is that even while empty it is heavy and once my daughter is buckled in it makes for a very heavy car seat. It also has a two-handed handle and with my carpel tunnel moving the handle up and down freely is not an easy task. If you are looking for a safe, comfortable, easy to install and modern look this car seat is a great option.

An excellent all-in-one Travel System
April 29, 2021
As a mom of 4 who has experience with the Britax B-Agile system, I am loving this upgraded travel system from Britax! Let's start with the B-Free stroller. First, the storage on this stroller is amazing! Everywhere you turn there are storage pockets for either your kiddo or yourself! The basket seems like a great upgrade and I love the front access, meaning you can get to your stuff no matter which side of the stroller you are on. While the basket seems a bit small to the naked eye, trust me when I say that I was able to stuff a whole load of items down there on our most recent trip to the park. The quiet peek-a-boo window is great for keeping an eye on your little one if they fall asleep, without waking them up with noisy velcro. With 3 wheels, the stroller pushes like a dream and you can turn on a dime! Love the push! Plus, the easy one handed fold and unfold is key when you're used to holding a little one. Now, onto the car seat - I am a big fan of the Safe Cell on Britax's car seats to provide added safety. I also think they are pretty easy to install correctly, and fit in most cars without any issue. The stroller is compatible with the car seat (or any other Britax car seat) right out of the box with included adapters, which is so nice! The car seat was easy to use, buckle, and has some nice updated safety features, which is always important to me. I love the no rethread harness and the European belt guide is essential as we begin to travel again. My only real complaint, however, is the weight of the car seat. At 11.5 lbs, it's one of the heaviest infant car seats on the market. While this isn't a huge deal in the newborn stage, it adds up quickly as your little one grows. One thing to keep in mind, but as I stated above, I think the good "outweighs" (pun intended) the seat. Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing this travel system to our busy family!

Safe and keeps baby happier!
April 29, 2021
This car seat is heavy duty. It's a bit harder to carry around than other infant carriers I have but it feels much more durable, safe and, high quality. I installed it myself in under 10 minutes and it takes longer to get my wiggly newborn into the straps than it takes to adjust. We tried using our older daughter's old seat before this one and there was a lot of crying. Since trying this one, baby is much calmer in the car. We also love the cute cow print! Thanks to the Stellar product testing panel for letting us try it out!

Modern travel system.
April 29, 2021
I received this Britax travel system through Stellar Product Testing Panel. I was able to put the stroller together and attach the car seat without even opening the manual. One thing I immediately notice about this travel system is it's weight. It's a little on the heavier side but nothing I cant handle. I love the sleek design

Easy to use, lightweight, loaded safety features
April 29, 2021
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant seat. Wow! This car seat is loaded with so many safety features, yet remains lightweight and is super easy to use. The carseat has great padding throughout that ensures your little one is snug and secure. I was able to install this car seat without the base, and it was so easy and still felt very secure. Hooray! My baby is in the 90 % so keeping the carseat as light as possible is a great help for me as I constantly carry the carseat to and from the car to the house. My favorite feature is the peekaboo mesh canopy window. My baby overheats so easily, but I want to maintain good sun protection, so this mesh window in the canopy provides the perfect balance. Loosening and tightening the safety harness is also very easy and smooth. Bravo Britax!

Amazing travel system great for outdoors!
April 29, 2021
Thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for sending me this product to review ! I fell in love with it from the moment I opened the box it's so sleek and looks very high quality! Starting with the stroller stroller it was super easy to put together just had to snap in the wheels and connect the canopy everything took less than 5 minutes and we were ready to go. I love the all black design and the no flat rubber tires makes it super easy to go anywhere without getting stuck. Two of my favorite features on this stroller have to be 1. The 7 storage pockets and 2. The FRONT ACCESS to the bottom storage basket it holds everything I need with room to spare and the fact that I can reach through the front to access the basket is so convenient it's a must have feature! Attaching the infant car seat to this stroller took all of 2 SECONDS it comes with a nice click and go system very easy to get in and out with no snags. Alittle about the infant car seat in this travel system I got the flex fit+ which comes with an anti-rebound bar attached to base, TAGLESS FABRIC (I hate when there's those big starchy tags right where baby lays their head this one does have safety tags they are just higher on the sides nowhere near babies face which I appreciate so much!) My FAVORITE feature on this car seat is the no re-thread harness & headrest it has 6 adjustable positions so you don't have to take it all apart and re-thread it every time your baby grows an inch which is a MUST 100000/10 thank you for this feature Britax! It's an amazing infant car seat my only small complaint is that I wish it was a tiny bit more padded for baby, I definitely don't think it's uncomfortable at all I haven't had any issues with my baby crying or being fussy in it and she would let me know if she didn't like it lol! I give the stroller a 10/10 for ease of use, convenience, and quality I love it! The infant seat I would give 9/10 You're able to use the car seat with or without the base very easy to install both ways, It isn't too heavy to carry, easy to attach to the stroller, quality is amazing, the only point I'm knocking off is for the padding but that could just be a me thing my baby doesn't mind it at all. We will definitely be using this travel system for years to come!!

So easy to install and adjust for your growing baby
April 29, 2021
This car seat is so easy to install and adjust and it seems so comfortable for my little man! The base was very easy to install into the car. The design allows you to very easily install using the latch system and easily make sure its very tight and secure. It is also very easy to use with no base, just using the seatbelt. I love that the headrest and should straps are adjustable without taking the car seat all apart and the diagrams directly on the car seat make it very easy how the car seat should be adjusted to fit your baby based on weight. There are so many features of this car seat that give me peace of mind that my little one is safe, secure and comfortable. The only downside with the car seat is that it is a little heavy and awkward to carry, but isn't that true with almost all car seats! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this infant seat to try out.

Cool and comfortable travel system
April 29, 2021
Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I was able to try the Britax B-Free & B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit Plus travel system. It has proven to be both comfortable and cool with its deluxe breathable padding and sporty color scheme.
The SafeCenter LATCH made it easy to secure & tighten the base in my car. My favorite feature of the B-Safe Gen2 is the no rethread harness that moves with the headrest for easy height adjustment as baby grows. No more taking the straps out, it's a quick button push when a growth spurt hits and you're on the go again. It has a steel-reinforced base and two layers of side impact protection, giving me peace of mind that my baby is both safe and comfortable. The seat itself weighs about 11 pounds and was a breeze to carry my two month old in.
The B-Free stroller was a joy to use. It folds with one hand (I can hold my baby in the other hand!) and unfolds just as easily. The click and go system meant I was able to click my infant carrier into the stroller without having to wake my baby. The stroller comes with an extra large expandable canopy with a peekaboo window to check in on baby and a magnetic closure to ensure the baby stays covered, even when it is windy. Some of my favorite features are the SEVEN storage pockets and front access to a large underneath storage basket. As a mom if 3, we travel with plenty of supplies and lots of snacks! The stroller is easy to steer and though it isn't the most lightweight stroller I have owned, I truly am not missing out because it comes with so many convenient features!
Overall, the travel system has been perfect for our growing family. I have never owned a Britax product and have been pleasantly impressed with the quality of the products. We will be able to use the infant seat until 35 pounds and continue to use the stroller for years to come!

Very convenient
April 29, 2021
There are so many things about this travel system that I really like. The stroller is quite easy to fold and unfold and lays quite flat when folded. I love how easy it is to attach and detach the car seat. I can quickly swap from toddler to infant use and back again with very little effort. The front basket entry is genius and might be my favorite convenience. I really like the foot guard on the car seat base and the seat itself isn't very heavy. I had to take off a star for the 3 wheels. They are super easy to manoeuvre and turn, but tend to tip if the ground slopes on either side. Unfortunately, since I live rural and walk along sides of roads most frequently, this is a regular issue for me. Otherwise, this would have a 5 star rating. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for this product.

Excellent travel system
April 29, 2021
If you are looking for a travel system that has it all, then the Britax B-Free & B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit Plus is the travel system for you! The base was quick and easy to install and the car seat locks in place every time. I have had other car seats that you had to adjust to just the right spot. This one connects with ease into the base and from the base to the stroller.
One of the first things I noticed about the car seat and stroller are that they have weight to them. They are not so heavy that I can't maneuver them but they feel sturdy and substantial. I get worried when a car seat is too light because it makes me wonder if it is safe enough.
The car seat came with infant inserts that helped my tiny 6 pound baby have the support she needed. It was hard to find a car seat that she fit in and did not have too much room to move. These inserts are simple to remove as she gets bigger to allow the seat to grow with her. The material is also very comfortable and looks durable.
The stroller is smooth and easy to use. I can maneuver it with one hand most of the time, which is important since I am usually still holding my 3 year olds hand as well. It glides over uneven pavement and is simple to fold and unfold quickly. I have not used the stroller without the car seat attached, however I did put my 3 year old in it to see how it fit. She fit great and still has plenty of room to grow so I know I will use the stroller for years to come. The only small thing I didn't like was that the stroller doesn't have a cup holder for me. It does have large pockets to toss keys, phone, etc. when going for a quick walk but no place to put my morning cup of coffee! The pockets are large enough for a bottle of water so I will just have to drink my coffee before going for our walks. It also has a nice large under basket for the diaper bag and any other baby necessities.
A huge thank you to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me this travel system!

Absolutely love it!
April 29, 2021
I absolutely love this travel system! First getting it out the box, it was so easy to put together. The stroller glides so smoothly along any kind of ground, I have gravel and it was so nice and easy to push. Setting up the carseat and base in my car was so easy and I love the easy to read level. My favorite part of the whole set up is that it is cooling. During the summer, my baby gets so hot and to have so many openings for air flow is amazing. The Britax b-lively travel system is definitely a must have! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this travel system.

Great option!
April 29, 2021
Safety is my number one priority when it comes to baby gear, with ease of use coming in a very close second. This seat easily checked both boxes! It was very easy for me to figure out how to adjust the harness while I was in a hurry to get my newborn to a doctor's appointment. It was also super easy to install the seat in my car, even without the base. I did feel like it could be easier to adjust the actual carrier handle, because the two buttons didn't click in as smoothly as i would want, but it wasn't a deal-breaker for me.

Overall, I feel very comfortable and safe putting my baby in this seat, and would definitely recommend to others.

Excellent for multiple children
April 29, 2021
I'm a mom of 3 (ages 3 months, 22 months, and 5) and we have had A LOT of strollers over the years. I always end up purchasing new ones because over time, our needs change and the ones we purchased no longer serve our family. It's frustrating when you invest in a product thinking it will work for a while and it ends up being a waste of money. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for gifting us this system, I don't think I will ever have to purchase another travel system.

The Britax B-Free & B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit Plus system is everything I have been looking for in the 5 years that I've been a parent. The quality is OUTSTANDING and it shows in the small details. There are pockets everywhere on this thing. Up top for parents and in the sides of the seat of the stroller for kiddos. The storage basket below is what impressed me the most. I have a huge diaper back back pack that fit under there with ease (something I have never been able to do with past systems.) I was also able to fit water bottles and my purse down there with it. The fact that you can access the basket from the front is a great addition.

I tested out the stroller with all 3 of my kids and they all fit well, even the almost 6 year old! That was really great to see because I have had to replace a system in the past simply because my then 3 year old was too tall for the seat. I forsee myself being able to use this system for a VERY long time. It is made of durable materials, including a steel frame on the stroller.

I then tested out installing the car seat to the stroller. This was super easy. The car seat clips are really easy to pop on and off and I had no trouble getting the car seat to click into the adapters. I love that the adapters can be easily removed because sometimes we would arrive at our destination and find that baby was asleep, so we would simply click the car seat into the stroller and keep moving. Other times, he would be alert and awake, and I would simply unattach the adapters and buckle him into the stroller seat.

I'm a little picky about car seats. I've used several, and I found this one to be really high quality. It felt comfortable to me as far as padding. My son's head was well supported in the seat. Adjusting it to his size was very easy (moving the crotch buckle, removing the infant insert, etc) It was a little more steps than I was used to, but the steps were all very easy to complete. My son also has reflux and spits up a lot, so at one point I had to remove all the covers and wash them. That was also seamless and it was really quick to put back together when it was dry. My son is large for his age (15 lbs at 3 months) and he fit really well in this seat. I didn't feel like it was too narrow for him or too deep. He will have plenty of room to grow in this.

The car seat clicks into the base really easily and I also felt it was easy to remove from the base. We did install baseless in our second vehicle and I had no issues with getting it snug or getting the recline correct. I typically avoid baseless installs because I get frustrated with them, but this one was really easy.

My favorite feature of this system is by far the storage and the canopy. I tend to be an over packer and even I couldn't fill every available pocket. The canopy unzips into an extra large size, which is great for on the go naps. The seat in the stroller reclines really far and combined with the canopy, made a really great napping place for my 22 month old.

The cons are small for me: the stroller frame is a bit heavier than what I'm used to. It really only feels heavy to me when lifting it in and out of my van. Maneuvering it with my children inside, it doesn't feel heavy to me at all. I also felt like the base was challenging to install with LATCH in my vehicle. There wasn't enough length on the connector straps to install it that way, so I had to install the base with the seatbelt. Not really a big deal, but something that hasn't been an issue for me with other systems, so I wish those straps had just a bit more length on them.

All in all, we are really happy with this product. The features are my favorite of any system I've ever owned, and I would buy it for a friend or family member in a heartbeat with no hesitation about quality or safety.

Amazing fit
April 29, 2021
Britax B-Safe Gen2 FlexFit Is so flexible it fits in multiple cars with ease and comfort. Easy to install and locked in correctly. The sleek look of it goes with any fabric of seats as well as doesn't slide around. Super easy to take out and carry with the sleekness of the fabric on the carrier. I love this accessory.

Absolutely love this travel system!
April 29, 2021
My husband and I both love this travel system. This is our 5th baby and this Britax b-free has been so easy to use and it literally has everything you would need. I use this to run errands daily so it's coming in and out of my trunk and it has been a breeze to open and close. The car seat was so easy to install into the car and onto the stroller, it just clicks right onto the stroller frame and lifts right out, never gets stuck. This is our 3rd Britax infant seat and they all have the same latch installation which takes about 1 minute to pop in a car, but this base also has a rebound bar, which I love the added safety measure there! The canopy on this is HUGE!!! Not only does it open all the way down, but you can also have it meet the car seat canopy when used as a travel system so the baby is completely covered. Next favorite thing- there are tons and tons of storage on this stroller, so many pockets and zippered pockets, it's awesome! The ease of getting to all of the storage pockets is also important and something you don't see elsewhere. The stroller undercarriage can be utilized from the front and back (so easily) and it is also very roomy and holds my kids jackets and my big ol diaper bag. The stroller can be unzipped on the sides, and back to have full ventilation going on for those hot summer strolls and we go to the beach all summer so I can't wait to use that, our baby will love it!! The stroller came with a padded seat cover which is awesome because you know.. leaky diapers will definitely and unfortunately happen. The buckle system on the stroller is so very easy and quick, I've put my toddler in there after the baby and the adjustments were easy to make with the no re-threading. It has a full recline for a tiny baby, all the way to a full sit up position for the bigger kids. I also love how we didn't have to purchase anything extra for this travel system. The car seat attachments came with it and the hood of the stroller has so many storage pockets and zippers that I didn't have to use my big bulky cup holder attachment. I was able to have my wallet, phone, keys, water bottle, and my older kids water bottles, all right there without adding a separate cup holder. The stroller itself drives like a dream, very easy to maneuver small stores and very lightweight to push, even when I had my bigger kids in there. The car seat seems like it has a much roomier and deeper seat than our other Britax. I believe my baby is more comfortable here because of that, and he's a big chunky baby so I know it will last me much longer. A small new thing I like on this car seat is that the strap pads are linked together behind the head cushion so they don't slide down or move around, they're stationary, and I absolutely feel like that is one of the better qualities on this seat. The fabrics are soft and pretty, which you want something not only useful but also attractive. I have highly recommended this travel system to my friends, and I've gotten many compliments on it while shopping. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this travel system!!

Quality Travel System
April 29, 2021
This feels like a high quality travel system that is going to last us for a long time. I love how the stroller and car seat look, and the materials feel really good. I thought that it was a little lacking in the softness or cushioning, but my toddler said sitting in the main stroller was comfortable, so that's what matters! It is so smooth to push around and turn, enjoyable to take on our walks. That's one of the biggest reasons I love this stroller. It folds and unfolds a lot easier than I'm used to, and the infant car seat attached easily and quickly as well. It's nice that the umbrella goes down so far, so my baby's face can be completely covered if the sun is getting in his eyes or if it's cold, but there is still a mesh window for air flow and to see him through.
There are a good amount of storage pockets. The basket on the bottom is accessible from the front or back and is pretty spacious. (That along with the far extending umbrella are probably my favorite features.) I like that there's many zipper pouches and mesh pockets. I love having that bit of storage space up by the handle. I only wish there were cup holders for the handle or a tray for the stroller seat.
The car seat was easy enough to install. It feels sturdy, I'm still able to carry it with my baby inside, though it is a little heavy.
I received this newborn carrier from the Stellar Product Testing Panel.
