Not so easy to use base, and unsturdy canopy
September 23, 2014
We just received this as a gift. The material seems great, it's lightweight, and seems easy to remove parts for easy cleaning. Our first issue right out of the box was that the base did not move easily in the up and down motion to adjust for leveling. We finally figured it out then moved on to test out the other parts. The seat belt was easily adjustable. The canopy on the other hand was very flimsy and slipped out of its "track". There is no locking mechanism to hold the canopy in place. It did not move back and forth easily. One side specifically made a clicking noise when moved back or forth. This may just be a default. We plan to exchange and try a new one to give it a chance because we love everything else about it so far. Will update review when done so.

Perfect infant car seat!
August 25, 2014
We love, love, love this infant car seat. It's simple, easy to use, lightweight, easy to clean ... all the things you'd want in an infant car seat. We have a bunch of other Britax products, so it goes well with our stroller and other stuff. Our parents were able to easily purchase the bases so they can simply pop the car seat into their cars too. Would absolutely recommend this!!!

Safe and Sturdy but not so comfortable
June 8, 2014
Fits good and easily in my Mercedes c320. Good for short drives,not enough cushion for long drives. If safety is your only concern then i would recommend this car seat but if you travel a lot then I would recommend you to consider other comfortable car seats too. With our a year of use i never had any problem with buckle, straps or handle, very good quality.
  • Safe.
  • Not so heavy.
  • Good Manufacturing.
  • Not enough padding.
  • Not good for hot weather.

Perfect Gender Neutral

We are adopting and needed gender neutral items. We have not personally used the car seat yet but I tried it out on a friends baby. It was really easy to use!

Loved all my Britax's till we got this one!

1. The chest buckle is way too wide for a new born. My son was 7 pounds 12 oz at birth and for the first month he screamed bloody murder cause if you put the chest buckle at the armpit which is where it is supposed to be it makes their arms stick straight our like a T. Its awful and it looks so uncomfortable!...2. The straps angel down which make is virtually impossible to keep on a newborn shoulders that are already very small. 3 The extra insert you buy sucks. and smooshes them all up and i'm still not certain its in right. however the insert that came with it is still too big and my son is 11 pounds now. Not sure where to go at this point with it. 4. The base always comes lose. I have to go check the base and pull the straps back tight about once a week and I have never had to do this with a car seat before.

February 5, 2014
We have not used this yet due to our baby still in my womb! It was a nice deal I could not pass and we needed a narrow but safe infant seat due to this being our third child and only having a five passenger car....all are still in some sort of car seat so space is limited! Hopefully this will be a great seat for our soon to be baby and will grow in it till at least 12months!

Horrible base!
October 10, 2013
The carrier seams nice. We hasn't used it yet. We purchased it because of positive Britax reviews and because it mates with our Baby jogger Summit X3. However, the seat base for the car is a piece of junk. The one that came with the seat requires 3 hands to adjust the angle. No amount of pressure allows the base angle to be adjusted easily by one person. My wife cannot adjust it at all by herself.I called Albee Baby and was told to call Britax customer service. (Why didn't Albee Baby take care of it on the spot?) I called Britax and they promptly sent a new base and a return label for the original base. The new base arrived today. Same problem as the original base. I'll keep the seat because it mates nicely with our stroller, but I can't recommend the product to anybody else because of the issue with the base, a disappointingly horrible, miserable piece of junk!
  • Seams like a nice carrier. Mates very well with the Baby Jogger Summit X3 with the small adapters available from Baby Jogger.
  • The seat base. A horrible piece of junk!

our little ones never fussed being in this carseat for the first four months of his life. he's a big boy so he quickly grew out of it, but we think it was a good purchased even if used for few months.
  • convenient for carrying a newborn around, feels safe and sturdy and fits great with the britax b-agile stroller
  • a little heavier and as baby got heavier it was a little hard to lug around.

We purchased (from Babies R Us) this Britax car seat at the recommendation of friends. We have loved it! Well build, safe & easy to carry. Really like the canopy. I also like how easy it is to clip the base into our car (or other cars). We even bought a second base for my husband's truck. We have used it now for almost 10 months. Our next car seat will be a Britax as well.
  • safety features
  • straps get twisted often

I was looking for a car sit online, I researched allot and compared the prices. Albee Baby have a great discount price. We are very happy with the purchase.
  • The best thing about this car sit is that we have a City Select stroller wich has a really small and much cheaper adopter for the Britax B-safe car sit.
Best Uses
  • Perfect for our Toyota Rav 4

Love the colors and the look. Fits my tiny newborn snugly. Love the fabric pinch guard behind the crotch buckle. Tightens so easily and smoothly. Base is a quick and easy install - we don't mind moving it between cars. Seat fits well in both of our cars, and is nice and light. Love that it clicks right in to my B-Ready stroller. I've had a Graco and a Baby Trend infant seat, and this is by far my favorite!

father of 4 impressed!
March 23, 2013
I feel that the Britax B-Safe car seat is an excelent choice! very sturdy construction. the fabric is thicker than most wich is a plus. the canopy is sturdy and stays up. there is a thick support bar inside of the front part of the canopy, most other car seats don't have such a strong support and other carseat canopys seem flimsey and made of cheap fabric. I also love the seatbelt buckle style anchors!!! they are a BIG plus especialy for dads like me with big hands! I don't have to shove my hand in the seat to clip the anchors in, like traditional anchors. I simply just find the anchor bar with one finger and the slide the carseat anchor buckle intoplace untill i hear and feel it click. undoing ithe base from the anchors is a breeze and im not straining or fighting the base to get it undone. adjusting the straps on the car seat is very simple! I thought about getting the other car seat with the adjustable straps with the slide on the back of the seat to save time, but then again your not changing the size of the straps that often so there was no point in spending the extra money. To my surprise, when i recieved the B-Safe car seat, I found that adjusting the strap positins and the ease of tightening and loosening the straps evenly was very easy and effortless! the sholder holes where the straps are fed through are wide and easy to get the straps through for adjusting the height of them, you don't have to strain to slide the end of the strap through. as far as the strap adjustment to tighten and loosen the straps, it is very simple and easy, you don't have to loosen one side then stop to give the other side more slack and then back to looseining again. I've always struggled to keep the car seat adjustments the same untill my baby was big enough to have to re adjust the straps again. But with the Britax B-Safe car seat im able to loosen and tighten the straps with ease and simplicity and not have to feel like adjusting the straps is a hassel. over all this product is quality and I am very very happy with The Britax product line!
  • The seat belt buckle style base anchors!
  • the easy sholder height adjustment rethreading process.
  • the super easy tightening and loosening of the straps!
  • the fabric quality!
  • and the comfort of the seat. baby is happy.
  • NONE!

What can I really other then Britax makes products that work great and are easy to use. After purchasing this carrier we have we also purchased the Britax boulevard car seats for both of our vehicles.
  • Everything. But most of all the material is very easy to clean and the shade on the carrier is better then most.
  • The carrier works great. Getting it onto the Britax stroller can be a bit hard at time because of the elastic on the stroller which is located where the carrier connects.

Love using this car seat with the B Agile Stroller. It clicks in nicely to the stroller and car base. The only thing that I would improve is a mechanism to let you know that the car seat is locked into place in the car. Overall, though, I really like this car seat.
