I absolutely LOVE this carseat and so does my toddler!! The recline is great for trips where you know they will be sleeping, and it is comfy enough so that we never had a problem keeping her in it. We have recently moved her up to the Frontier (I am 100% faithful to the Britax brand!) and when I sold this seat last week, my daughter cried for her "chair." Completely heartbreaking, but we have one just as good now :) Yes, it is big and bulky, but all of that and the price are worth it knowing that your child is safe AND comfortable, which is something hard to find these days. DEFINITELY recommend this to all parents of toddlers!!!

I love my Britax Marathon! I have one for my 3 year old and just purchased one for my 6 month old. Britax is the best brand out there in my opinion. The Marathon is in the large side but it is a little smaller than some if the othe convertible car seats. I feel that my babies are safe in their car seats.

We moved our son to this seat when he was 7 months old. It was big but he fit just perfect inside! This is a great seat that is easy to use and install!

I love this carseat and so does my 14 month old. I feel very safe having him in it and love how much cushion it has. I don't have to worry about him being uncomfortable for long rides.

Fantastic car seat

Bought this car seat for my husbands 1964 Ford truck. The cab of the truck only has a bench seat and minimal leg room. This seat is large but we're still able to seat my husband and I on the bench seat with this seat installed. Extra secure harness system. Our son looks very comfortable in this seat and he's tall for his young age.

This seat was the #1 recommended seat when asked several mom friends and etc that I know. I was very happy with how fast it shipped and the price. It is a wonderful carseat, super comfy and very plush. I love the fact the it reclines but its a little hard to use rear-facing so thats why I gave it 4 stars.
  • size, reclines, huge, plush, comfortable and will grow with child
  • its hard to use all functions rear-facing.

Marathon 70
April 16, 2012
After extensive research attempting to find my son the safest, yet affordable car seat, I decided on the Britax Marathon 70. I am super happy with my decision- we have had ours for almost one year now and are still in love with it. It is super easy to install, whether using the latch system or seatbelt, whether forward or rear facing, and ALWAYS feels secure. What I like most is that his head does not fall forward when he falls asleep! We have used four other convertible car seats- all in which his head falls forward when he sleeps- I am sure it isn't comfortable and worry about his airway. We had previously used a Combi Zeus 360, which always felt loose whether using the seat belt or the latch system, his head fell forward, and it was ridiculously heavy. The seat we bought for our other vehicle, which was a TrueFit Premier was on sale and had similar ratings, his head falls forward sometimes, and it is difficult to tighten- in all honesty, I wish I would have dished out a bit more money and gotten another Britax...
  • Easy to install, with either the latch system or seat belt rear or forward facing.
  • Always feels secure.
  • Reclines to a comfortable, and safe angle for my child.
  • Durable, yet light weight.
  • High safety ratings, and relatively affordable.
  • I wish they had more stylish options.

After buying and returning 5 other seats we finally "splurged" for this one. Worth every penny. Fits great rear facing and takes up less space than my infant seat even fully reclined. I love it.
