Love it!

My daughter really loves her new car seat. I love how roomy it is and how soft the material is. I love everything about the car seat except the fact that it is not washing machine friendly. It recommends hand washing the car seat! The car seat is well made and safe for my child. I am happy with my purchase. Oh, and although it is large, it does fit into my tiny Chevy Cavalier!

Best booster!

This was the second britax 85 we purchased. We love them, and so do our boys. Not only are they the safest, but also very comfortable, and easy to get install.

Best Booster Seat
January 8, 2013
My 4 year old is in the frontier and we love it! It fits him perfectly and it has cup holders! And of course nothing beats the safety features Britax offers. My daughter has a G3 Marathon and will either move into this Frontier or we'll get her a new one. Plus it's super easy to clean. We love this booster!!
  • I love the Cowmooflage! And the cup holders are great.
  • The bottom belt cover is a little hinky. The G3 is much easier to position where this one gets lost if they sit on it.

Britax Booster
December 22, 2012
We are very happy with our booster. This is our second one. The cowmooflage pattern is really cute and my son loves it. He wishes both were this pattern. It seems to be more comfortable for him to sit in than his Boulevard seat. He also likes to have his own cup holder. My only complaint is that it is difficult to install with the LATCH system due to having one long strap with two buckles instead of separate straps on each side of the seat.
  • Safety, comfort, cup holders
  • Difficult to install, heavy

Riding the Cow!

My grand daughter was not used to riding forward, but we convinced her it was good by telling her she was "riding the cow". This is a very good product and am confident of her safety.

This is the 3rd one of these car seats we have bought. If you are having a tough time with the long belt path install just search you tube and there is a video that walks you thru it.
  • Safe
  • The britax name
  • Long life for seat!

Can't go wrong with Britax
October 10, 2012
This is the third Britax seat I have owned, so I obviously like them. However, I didn't realize just how much until I recently purchased a Graco Nautalis 3-in-1 seat for my daughter to use in my mother's car. This Britax is so much easier to install, the harness is easier to adjust, it takes up less room in the car, I could go on and on. I am a Britax customer for life.

Britax Frontier 85 Car Seat
October 9, 2012
My kids have been in the cowmooflage britax car seats for a long time. So when it was time to upgrade I didn't hesitate to buy the Frontier 85 one. In comooflage of course. I LOVE that print. Between now and 15 more lbs I plan on getting another one for my almost 2 year old. So YES I would recommend it to others. Only con is that it is a bit on the heavy side. Not a problem if you plan on leaving it in one vehicle and not moving frequently.

Big girl seat
October 8, 2012
My granddaughter loves her new big girl seat. Her brother has one too. Although these seats are very pricey, I feel better transporting my precious cargo in our travels to explore their world. The seat arrived in a timely manner and was easily installed, even by this grandmother. It is easily cleaned when something is spilled on it. I really would like for someone to make a seat cover that would fit this booster seat.

Fantastic Car Seat
September 5, 2012
With car seats, you definitely get what you pay for! For the last several months, we were using a cheap car seat but I wasn't happy with the way it was wearing and it seemed uncomfortable for my daughter to ride in. So we decided to spend the money and get a better car seat and it has been money well spent! My daughter loves her new seat! She is more comfortable, can see out easier, and loves her "big girl" cup holders. I love the safety rating and that it will convert into a booster when the time comes. Only complaint is if you are using the lap belt, it is difficult to string through the back of the seat. The opening is very small. But if you use the hooks, that isn't an issue. Other than that, it is a great seat!
  • Safety Features
  • Comfortable ride
  • Cup holders
  • Difficult in belting it in with the lap belt

Britax Frontier 85 Booster Seat--LOVE IT!
March 10, 2012
After reading the safety reviews about car seats and trying out some of the competitors' car seats, it has become very clear to me that you get what you pay for... and these are the absolute best ones on the market today. When I consider how much time I'll spend each day getting children in and out of the car, I don't want to battle with buckles and straps. I just want a good product. And as an added bonus, they're made in the USA! I purchased 2 of these in "cowmooflage" and loved them so much that I purchased two more to replace the older car seats in another vehicle. Although it was certainly a bit of a stretch on our pocketbook, it's nothing compared to what we would pay if our children were to be injured in an accident. I also love that these will accommodate our kids as they get taller, so they will be able to stay in them longer. As usual, AlbeeBaby delivers. They were at my front door within a short time of placing my order. I always look to AlbeeBaby first for my baby needs!!!
  • Ease of latching and releasing the child.
  • Thick straps that don't get twisted up.
  • Ease of strap adjustment.
  • Accessibility of cup holders.
  • Dual band tether for added stability.
  • Quality fabric and padding for comfort.

What's not to love!

Purchased this for my very large 2.5-year-old son when little sis took over the Marathon he had been using. My husband installed it with ease and my son LOVES having his own cup holder. It's not as cozy as the Marathon, but my son has no complaints! Hoping this will be our last car seat purchase for him! :-)

Wonderful car seat!!!
January 11, 2012
I decided to get this car seat for my son after he out grew the Britax Marathon car seat. He absolutely loves it! It's a very comfortable seat, as he always falls asleep in it! Also its great that he will be into this seat until he no longer needs to be in one. The best thing I love about this seat is that it still has a harness on it, so he cannot unbuckle himself. It was important for me to know that he will stay securely in the seat while I'm driving, he is almost 4 years old. The material is really soft on this model also.

We have had the Britax Blvd CS that we ordered from here since my son was 6 months old & loved it. When he just turned three we ordered the new Frontier & we LOVE it. My 36lb 38" 3 yr old son loves it & has so much room to grow. I only order from Albee baby because of their great prices & awesome customer service.
  • cup holders, fabric is soft & cowmooflage is so cool, plenty of room in the seat, easy install.

We had previously bought Britax with our first child, so for us there was no other option. Love all the features, my little one thinks he is a big boy now because he has a cup holder!

best seat!

I got this seat in the cowmooflage for my 3 year old. (now 4). He loves the print and I love that it is so safe. Yes it is pricey, but safety is more important to us than the price. It fits nicely behind my drivers seat in my hummer h3, he has plenty of leg room. Its not a bulky seat. I will definitly be getting the same one for our baby when he gets older. Love that he can stay in the 5 point harness longer than any other seat, very safe!!
