So easy to install
April 16, 2022
ClickTight mechanism is so much easier to get a tight fit than regular car seats. Don't need to spend ages wrestling with the seatbelt and pulling it as tight as possible. Just thread it through and lock the seat down... done.

Its clearly well built and looks more substantial on the sides than other seats we looked at, so would be better in a side-impact. Its a pretty big unit, takes up a lot of space in our CR-V, but that is probably the price you pay for the extra safety.

Fabrics are easy to take off, machine wash and put back on. Overall, really happy with it!

Incredibly easy to install the seat. Adjusting the tilt and height was a bit finicky though.

Best brand out there
February 24, 2022
Britax is the best brand out there in my book. The European people are way ahead of the.US when it comes to building cars so I am not surprised that car seat are up there right along with the cars since so many people need them. I have BMW X5 and before that a BMW 5 series and they fit perfectly
Into the backseat like they were made to. With the latch system it is so easy to install them. When they need to be cleaned you just take the cover off throw it into the wash and dry and put it back on..so simple and they even attach the instructions booklet to the seat for quick easy reference..I just tuck it under the seat when I install and I have it right there when I need it. Used this brand for my last son who is 22 and bought a new one ten years later for my Grandson and now have a new granddaughter coming along that this one is for. Will not even consider anything else out there no matter the cost. Cost does not mean safety or durability

We are parenting a grandchild and needed easy seats to install that you can't go wrong with the install. The Britax clicktight seats fit the bill. I first got one for my vehicle and then my husband needed one as well so we got a second Britax. We like the cowmooflage since it is safewash! We have both a marathon and a boulevard and you can't go wrong with either one!
  • Clicktight easy install
  • Solid construction
  • Comfortable for the child with several recline options
  • Safewash material
  • Don't have to replace seat if accident was a mild one you can drive away from
  • Easy to clip child in seat
  • None

Excellent budget plush choice
August 2, 2021
Absolutely love the Britax marathon! It was the best choice for our family from a budget standpoint while still getting those plush features that we wanted. Extra cushion / padding for the little guy on long rides, flexibility in seat positioning and extended height for longer rear facing!
The only con, and it really isnít even a con, is it took a while to install compared to my others. Just read, read, read the directions and your car manual.

Safe heavy car seat, easy install
July 24, 2021
Yes this is a heavy car seat. There is metal inside to make it strong and safe. Thatís what I want. Safe! Very easy to install. I always use the cars seatbelt not latch system because the seat belts are the safest method. So, the click right makes it very easy to that. You can use latch if you prefer and child is within weight limits. It is approved for airline use, weight of seat would be a struggle for me though. That being said, we ordered a graco seat at lesser cost but still good safety ratings and we use that for travel and grandparents cars. This works great for us. This seat primarily stays in the car and does not transfer, again it is easy to move if needed though. Totally recommend. I also have a boulevard. It has a couple upgrades but marathon model is still wonderful and excellent safety reviews.

Affordable and very comfy

My friend suggested if i were to buy a carseat i would definitely go with britax. It is affordable and very comfortable. My baby never cries whenever shes in her carseat. It is a big carseat but i could tell that my baby is safe with this carseat. And what i love about this is that it is so easy to install!!!

I just love this print. Itís so cute and the quality of the seat canít be beat. Itís definitely heavy, sturdy and not something you want to transfer from vehicle to vehicle but itís great for one car. The cover is easy to remove and wash. This is now my 4th britax marathon in the cowmooflage style and it just looks so cute.

This is our second one bc of installation ease!! We also are traveling on a plane with it which should be awesome bc the seat is one of the slimmer car seats available so baby will have her own space and be safely secured.

Heavy but safe
April 30, 2021
We have loved these car seats but not ideal if you will be moving it between cars a lot. They are sturdy and easy to install correctly but heavy. It has kept my daughter safe rear facing up to 4-years-old then forward facing another year. We will be passing it on to my 9 month old when he outgrows his car seat in a couple months.

Great product
March 10, 2021
I am a veteran mom four times over. I have used so many different car seat brands in all the stages from Baby Trend (bad) Graco to Maxi Cosi to Britax, etc.
Britax is hands down my favorite. Iíve replaced two of my Graco 4ever and E2F for the Britax compared seat, mainly because I kept having issues with my Gracos after 1-2 years, and I have never been more delighted. This purchase specifically, was to upgrade my 4m old out of his infant seat and installation was AMAZING. I used to roll my eyes at the ClickTight hype- getting a good install with the latches was easy enough, why would I pay for that extra for a ClickTight? Let me just tell you that it is 100% worth the money and hype! I also love how much more comfortable I feel with this steel framed seat than the plastic ones of other brands that I have used.
The seat itself is nice and plush, not as soft as a Maxi Cosi, much softer than a Graco, but much much better than either brand altogether. My four month old loves this seat so much better as well. We went from screaming in every car ride to a baby that is content to just look around and out the window.
  • Steel frame
  • ClickTight install
  • Higher height limits (49?)
  • Plush
  • Cute cow design
  • Great recline options
  • Compact
  • Antirebound bar option (sold separately)
  • Britax does not require seat replacement in minor fender benders
  • Heavy (steel frame) but because the install take 3 seconds, I wouldn?t mind transferring this seat back and forth between another vehicle if needed
  • Price but it?s comparable to other expensive brands that don?t have the steel frame or ClickTight or higher limits in order to rearface longer

This seat is solid. Thereís definitely a learning curve to the click tight mechanism, but once that itís overcome, the seat fits as nice and tight as the old Britax seats. I had a little anxiety worried my sister would try to take it out of her car and not know how. The one complaint I have is that it is low for the toddler, and she canít see everything out the window..maybe thatís safer? The straps are superior to the other seats I have (Graco, Evenflo and Cosco), and I feel the kids are more protected with this seat. My 2 year old grandson even wanted to sit in it over the Evenflo when he was riding with his cousin. Itís heavy to transfer into another car but I do it so rarely that itís not a big deal. Another con is that itís a little wide for the backseat of my Mazda CX-5, but not an issue because other seatbelts are still accessible, it just fits best behind the passenger seat. It also fit in rear facing when we used it that way.
  • Tight fit
  • High quality straps
  • Cute polka dot pattern
  • Learning curve with click tight mechanism

We ordered this car seat for our first child and like it so much that we bought the same one for our second child. We are repeat Albee Baby customers because of the pricing and fast shipping!
  • The major pro for our family is the safety ratings for this car seat.
  • The base is bulky and is wider than the middle seat of our Ford Explorer, so if your family needs three of these seats across one row, that might be a challenge.

Easy to Move, Install and Use
June 23, 2020
This car seat is easy to move, install, and buckle. We move it back and forth between our car and grandparents' car in 5 minutes (and it also gives us a chance to dump out any snacks that have snuck into or under the seat). Our little one moved into it at about 11 months and seems very comfortable. We are able to easily get her out when sleeping, which is a plus as well.

Great car seat.
Pros easy to clean, easy to buckle in, toddler likes the car seat and seems comfortable in it
Cons. The cover part keeps coming off and itís brand new (I had a older one same print marathon style but not click tight and cover never came off in the 5 years I had it. I just got new because I was in a accident)
