Great Product!
We bought this car seat for my son a few years ago and loved it so we bought it again for my daughter. We really love these car seats. They hold up very well and the kids are very comfortable in them. My son is now 4 years old and he still fits in it great and still has plenty of room to grow. My daughter is 8 months old and she seems to like it. She sits and sleeps well in it. We are very glad we purchased this car seat.
ProsThis car seat is perfect for growing with the child. We love that part of the car seat.
ConsThe click tight is a little difficult to use. I have to have my husband close it for me. The seat belt also can get in the way when I am putting my daughter into the seat. But other than that it is a great safe car seat.

Cowmooflage love
This is my second ClickTight Convertible Car Seat in Cowmooflage‚€”love this print! Between my car and my husband's we now have 4 ClickTight seats and love them. They are very easy to install and comfortable for the kids. They do take up a bit of room when rear-facing, but that's true of any car seat. Just wish they were a little easier to clean.

Love my clicktight
Love this car seat. It is so easy to install. It is heavy but it is reinforced with steel bars so I'd take the weight for safety. Very comfy my daughter loves it.

A solid choice
Our new Marathon ClickTight convertible car seat is a solid choice. It's pretty easy to install as long as you don't need to take it out. I found the round click tight button that releases the seat very difficult to open once you get it in the car. Also, it was tricky put in my husband's car because of the way the seatbelt kept retracting. One other problem that's somewhat annoying is getting the straps to release, because the button to press is in a hole that you have to put your finger way down into. On the plus side, it has high safety ratings and is a beautiful car seat and very comfortable I believe for our little guy.
ProsHigh safety ratings.
ConsHard to take out once you install.
Best UsesCan fit in a smaller car like a Jetta.

Not Easy!
This car seat took me forever to install. I needed my husband's help to get it installed properly. The straps will not loosen. I am going to probably return it for a different car seat.

Very disappointed...
I am a FTM and I did a lot of research before buying a convertible car seat for our little girl. Every review was great for this car seat, safest, most comfortable, and easy to use. So I chose this car seat for my car and my husband chose the Recaro convertible car seat for his car. I definitely chose wrong. This car seat is very difficult to use, my kiddo is not comfortable and it is very obnoxious to use. My 2 year old is big for her age but the car seat is meant to be used for kids up to 50 lbs, when my little girl was 24lbs she honestly didn't fit in this car seat. The straps do not loosen at all and constantly get stuck behind the car seat. The recaro my husband got it so easy to use and my daughter actually says that she would rather ride in daddy's car. I was hoping for my daughter to be in this car seat for a very long time since it is up to 50lbs but I am already looking into another car seat because I am so unhappy with this product.

Pain in the butt!
I've had my ClickTight for a year now an I am not happy with it. The thing is a tank. You cannot remove it with a child in it so you always have to wake up a sleeping child. It is a pain to install. If you don't have the tension of the seatbelt just right you can't close it or its too loose. You have to move it to adjust the incline so it is a guessing game based on the slope of the seat. The straps don't loosen very much so it can be irritating trying to get the child in and out while holding a toy. The padding comes off the plastic sides if you lean on it and it is a pain to reattach it.

Love this Car Seat
I bought this car seat about 3 weeks ago for my 1 year old. It is sturdy and sleek in design. I love the clicktight feature! I have a Toyota corolla and I expected the fit to be snug. Surprisingly, there is more room than I imagined there would be. The straps are easy to use and operate. I did have to adjust the buckle on the bottom and after that adjustment, everything has been fabulous. I plan on buying another one for my husband's car!

Hate Installing
I have had this car seat for 11 month now and I hate it! It is so hard to install with the latch system. I have a very difficult time turning the clicktight button to get the seat to open up. We struggle with it every time. It's very hard to turn, and then it's also hard to get it to latch again once you are done installing. Right now I have to wait for my husband to get off work to see if he can turn it so I can wash the pads after a blow out. (All pads are also hand wash and air dry so it's not a fast or easy process either) The hooks for the latch system are also very basic. The regular marathon which has hooks with a release button are so much easier to use. Yes this car seat keeps my daughter safe. Yes I have read all the information on how to correctly install it. She is safe when in the carseat. But man do I dread having to ever take it out of the car ( It is also very heavy) I am really considering trying to sell it and just getting a regular Marathon like her cousins.

Love this seat
We just took the grand daughter on a 700 mile trip in this new seat and she loved it. My Son and Daughter-in-law now wish they had bought this seat. Take time to bring the seat in the house and adjust all the straps for the best fit, in the position the seat will be used (detailed instructions are provided). Then strap your baby in it and have her set in it a bit, to make sure that she is comfortable, before installing it in the car...
ProsVery easy to install and remove from the car and short enough when reclined, to allow the front seat to be moved back to a reasonable distance. Easy to adjust from an upright to a reclined position.
ConsHeavy (has a steel frame), but also has a comfortable carrying handle

Changed my review
Great company! I previously gave this seat a one star review because I had difficulty installing and removing the seat. I was contacted by customer service and sent a new seat from Britax. The new seat Was easy to install. Only reason I am giving 4 star is because The seat , itself is still pretty heavy but I feel comfortable putting my two and a half year old in the seat. if I could remove my one star review, I would. Thank you Britax. You made me a happy customer.

Buckle straps are horribly short.
I purchased this seat for our new car and I can't get over how terrible the buckle strap is. I tried moving the strap forward as instructed but the webbing strap itself is just too short. My 1 year old son cries in pain from the latches and buckle digging in to his inner thighs. If it were only few inches longer then his legs wouldn't have to be spread open and the latch/buckle wouldn't dig into his thighs. Will be returning this today.

Pain in the neck to install
We have bought six Britax carseats over the course of the last 6 years (2 seats per kid for three children, ages 7years, 5years, and 9months). In the past we have bought the Blvd. seat. Over the weekend we purchased the Marathon ClickTight. I installed it today and it was a MISERABLE process. I struggled with the ClickTight button it was broken, I couldn't adjust incline without serious force, and the lower anchor storage lid got wedged in the seat after it was installed as I didn't close it before adjusting the recline. Awful, terrible, install process. What is so frustrating is that it is marketed that it makes install easier...I can say that is not my experience. Having said all of that I do have confidence in the seat's safety but it is very difficult to install.

Love this car seat
We got this car seat to replace our other Britax which was in a car accident. We previously did not have the Click tight model but now that we do, I would say it's definitely worth the extra money. The Cowmooflage is a fun design which is good for both boys and girls. We love this car seat!
ProsFun design Easy to clean fabric covering Click tight design is very easy to install and feels secure.
ConsIt is heavy. Not good for a car seat you have to share between cars.

straps are shorts
the straps for the seat are very short, not even mention how tight is between the legs. I am so disappointed because it looks pretty and I kind of trusted britax. I owned other two britax an advocate and a marathon from 2013, but the marathon plastic that goes over the chest broke so I decided to get a new chair, but This new chair is to uncomfortable because the straps are too short, or I got a defective chair, I am sending it back/

Works great, easy install, very heavy
I've had this for 14 months. The only carseat we use (we have 2 others!). It's easy to install, easy to clean, easy to adjust to fit. My daughter is comfortable in it, and fits her comfortably. The only downside is that it is so heavy to pick up when moving from car to car. I have a back injury and I have to ask for help moving it.

Easiest secure installation ever!
I love Britax car seats for their safety and harness system but they have perfected the sometimes frustrating installation of the car seat. It is so easy with the click tight. The car seat is heavier than my old one but it has metal bars under the plastic which provides more stability. It is ready for my new grandson's first ride!

Great car seat!
I am a big Britax fan always have been and we have 4 kids! This car seat did not disappoint. I absolutely love it! It is sleek and fits great in my van. My son is rear facing and I was surprised by how much room we still have between the back of the driver's seat and the car seat. He seems very comfortable in it and the pattern/material is fantastic. It's breathable and very easy to clean. My only complaint is the click tight was hard for me to click down. I literally had to sit on the seat to get it locked and I had a great deal of trouble unlocking it. Other than that great car seat!

Easiest install. Rock solid!!
I bought this seat 7 months ago. It wasn't used full time until my son outgrew his infant car seat. We have an older daughter so this is not our first Britax but it is our first Click Tight. Our other 4 Britax seats were easy to install but OMG the click tight technology makes it a breeze!! There is seriously no movement! I love never having to worry about compromising the safety of my son when we have to reinstall the seat.

We bought this seat due to it's excellent safety reviews and to be known as "the best"! However, my daughter isn't finding it very comfortable and the straps over her shoulders are too bulky or if I remove the padded covers it cuts into her skin.

So easy to install and super safe
I got this car seat for my daughter she she was getting too big for her bsafe infant seat. Although it is heavy it is super easy to install and is very sturdy. You have the security of knowing it is locked in tight because of the click and it doesn't move much when it is installed. My daughter still likes it rearranging and it also has a cute pattern on it

Tried and True
I bought a Britax Marathon for my daughter, four years ago and so knew I would want the same for my son. I love the safety features and appreciate the updates they have been made over the last few years. I used both in a Toyota Corolla (rear facing) and had no problems! The click tight system is definitely a time and mind saver as it ensures the perfect fit every time! It's at the top end in terms of price for convertible car seats, but I'm not sure you can put a price on safety when it comes to a little one! Besides, there's a reason it's a little more: you truly get what you pay for!

Easy to use
I'm really pleased that we chose the marathon click tight after our child outgrew the infant carrier. With the click tight and anchor, there's never any doubt that it's secure. We've gone from rear to forward facing with it. Though it's a little heavy, it isn't difficult to transfer the seat between cars.

Awesome Seat
Bought this seat as soon as my son was too big for his infant carrier. Very glad I went with this one. Simple to install and move to a different vehicle if necessary. It's also very compact (when I first purchased this I was driving a Ford Focus which didn't give me a lot of room to install). Overall I'm very happy with it.

With my daughter we went through so many carseats she was so unhappy traveling. So with my son I knew the importance of a comfortable, safe, and safe product. Since we put my son in this seat he has been a very happy traveler. I love the convenience of the clicktight system it makes for a quick and easy removal and set up. I recommend these car seats to everyone there are simply amazing and the highest of quality and safety that can't be beat!!!Love mother of 2 happy and safe kids thanks to britex!! very happy customer.

super safe
I bought this a month ago to replace my britax infant seat because we were recently in a car accident. This being our second accident this year, safety was the biggest concern. The ClickTight feature in the Marathon made it an easy choice. It is basically a fool proof feature that ensures proper installation. The carseat is heavy, but that is because of how safe it is. In addition to the safety feature, I love that the material is easy to care for and the seat is comfortable for my daughter. I highly recommend any britax product. We also own the BReady and bAgile strollers.
