The ClipQuik? auto-magnetic chest clip opens easily from the front side with just one hand when getting your child out of the car, and slide together and lock on their own so you can get on your way quickly.

Safer side impact protection provided by Air Protect? technology which protects your child where it?s needed most, around the head.

The machine washable and dryer safe seat pad unsnaps and removes easily over the frame.

The Pria 85 Max fits children rear-facing starting at 5 pounds with removable insert cushions to give smaller babies a snug fit. Along with premium fabrics and padding throughout, the Pria 85 Max also provides the most comfort for your child during the journey.

The Pria? 85 Max lets you enjoy the ride with your new BFF. Better, Faster, Fit. Every time. It?s the only premium convertible car seat that offers a first-class ride from 5-85 pounds and premium innovations that make it easier to get your child in and out of the seat.

The ClipQuik? auto-magnetic chest clip opens easily from the front side with just one hand when getting your child out of the car. Strapping them back in again is easy too. The ClipQuik magnets slide together and lock on their own so you can get on your way quickly. It?s also easier to get your child in and out of the Pria 85 Max thanks to the handy harness holders that keep the harness straps out of the way, and a flip away buckle. This clever buckle won?t get stuck under your baby when getting in the seat or stuck in clothing when getting out.

The Pria 85 Max convertible car seat fits children rear-facing starting at 5 pounds with removable insert cushions to give smaller babies a snug fit. It then keeps them cozy up to 40 pounds. When they're ready to ride forward-facing, turn this car seat around to safely fit children up to 85 pounds; the highest weight range offered by a convertible car seat. Both stages benefit from the safer side impact protection provided by Air Protect? technology which protects your child where it?s needed most, around the head.

Featuring insert cushions and premium fabrics and padding throughout, the Pria 85 Max also provides the most comfort for your child during the journey. It provides more comfort adults too with a special design that fits better in your car, allowing more room for your passengers to stretch out in the front seats.

Keeping the Pria 85 Max clean is simple. The seat pad unsnaps and removes easily over the frame. There?s no need to remove the seat from the car or to make complicated maneuvers with the harness straps. The Pria 85 Max seat pad is both machine washable and dryer safe. All this allows you to get a thorough clean not available in other car seats.

*Not including combination harness to booster seats.

Great Car Seat

Love this car seat, kid loves it too. Was uncomfortable in the Britrix and total different mood now in the Maxi-Cosi. Wish they didn't discontinue.

Large and comfortable, some movement post install
August 13, 2023
Large and comfortable carseat for toddler, but fabric/color shows stains very easily (even water stains). The installation never felt very tight or secure, and we used both the latch and the back anchor.

Straps won’t tighten
April 16, 2023
We liked this seat rear facing but the straps were so hard to tighten. Once we switched to forward facing, it was hard to get a hand behind the seat to pull them straps tight enough.

It's okay
September 28, 2022
I've had several carseats and these were not my favorite, but they were decent. I really love the way the buckle stayed out from under the kiddo. The install wasn't my favorite and I wish it had more incline options. The seat is also really bulky.

Needs modification before use with newborn
August 23, 2022
Poor inclination design - won't recline far enough for newborn so needs propping up. The ground level line will never be level with the ground as no modern car seat is horizontal to the ground which the design should take into consideration.

Great product but I wish it offered greater flexibility for height
April 25, 2022
This is a great car seat and it’s easy to install… while your kids are little. Once kiddos start getting a little taller, the quickly outgrown the adjustable back. I have 2 other 4-in-1 car seats that have a much greater range for height so I’ve graduated my big kids to other car seats while the little guys use this one. This might not be a great option for someone looking for a long term car seat.

We bought this car seat from Albee over a year ago, and could not be happier!

I’m sad to see it’s discontinued. My husband and I are avid travelers. We love to go. It’s normal for my daughter to be on a 3 hour road trip, with planned stops. This care seat is for the win. My daughter is two and on most trips she falls asleep in this seat and will stay asleep till we arrive to our destination. She is so comfortable and never gets too hot.

This car seat has held up so nicely. As a mom I love how easy it is to remove the fabric to wash and clean it. The cup holder feature is also fantastic!

Would highly recommend!

  • Easy to clean
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
  • Great for long distance travel
  • Cup holder
  • Easy chest snap
Best Uses
  • If you?re on the road a lot and want something durable and comfortable
  • It is on the bigger side

Chest clip stopped working
March 1, 2022
This car seat checks so many boxes- comfortable, easy to install, easy to clean, attractive. I’ve had no problems with it in the first year. At about the one year mark the magnet that keeps the chest clip closed completely stopped working. It would not work to hold a child in on impact- the #1 purpose of a car seat.

Great until you try the Cybex
September 13, 2021
Loved this carseat for years... didn't realize that it was as tricky or bulky as it was until I moved to the Cybex eternis which is soooo easy to strap and pull tight. I still recommend this car seat - it's the most comfortable convertible seat by far for the kids just a PIA for parents to get straps tight!

My baby hated his chicco key fit 35. Every car ride was torture. This seat is so much better. He seems much more comfortable and no screaming! I do think the straps are a little hard to pull to adjust, but other than that we're very happy with it.

Love this beautiful car seat! Very easy to snap into the car (why can’t every car seat have this system?!) seems like a comfortable car seat and the manufacturer date was within the last couple months which is excellent considering I payed half the price!
So worth it.

First off, this is a legit website. We bought a traditional infant car seat when we had our daughter and needed a bigger one by the time she was 1. I went to Target to feel/see the difference between the Safety 1st models and happened to feel the seat of the Maxi Cosi and it was SO MUCH BETTER than the others. But I didn’t want to pay $300+. I ordered from Albee Baby and received a car seat that was manufactured just a few months ago (lasts 10 years) in less than a week— for less than $200. It’s so comfortable and wide for our little one to sit in— she loves it! We just ordered the Magellan XP for my husbands car. Totally worth the extra $75 over the cheaper brands.

Although bulky for my car, this baby seat is super comfortable for the little one. There is lots of padding to keep her secure and snuggly. It is easy to install, and the baby straps click in with a magnetic chest piece. Overall, it’s a super nice car seat.

Absolutely thrilled with this car seat
March 28, 2021
We are grandparents of a baby girl, who once upon a time, thought we only needed a base to a car seat our son and daughter in law already had. What none of us realized at the time is, babies outgrow those smaller car seats and we were going to need a convertible car seat that will take us through her next few years. Back went the still unopened base and I found this beauty while browsing through Albee Baby website. Thrilled with the color for a girl and one look at the reviews, especially the one where the mother said this seat saved her child's life after a severe highway accident, made me know this was the one we wanted. Not sure why the brightly colored versions are on such a sale compared to the plain black same model, but I'm not complaining. We got this for a phenomenal price and are ready to put it to good use. As our baby granddaughter outgrows her other car seat , we are excited to use this one in our cars. At this sale price, its an affordable option for many grandparents to buy to use for when they need to transport their grandchild.

We love it, but the quick clip broke and couldn't get repair
March 16, 2021
I was driving one day and had to pull over because my two year old could just pop the quick clip open. When I first got the car seat I was so excited because it took a little bit of pressure to actually open it which was great, until one day it just started popping open. I tried calling to get help with a repair or replacement part for the quick clip and I sat on hold for 20 minutes only for them to keep ending the call. They suggested reaching out on social media and I kept trying fb and they never responded. I did buy a different maxi cosi car seat since then with a traditional chest clip and have no complaints. Just wish getting ahold of someone was easier..

The magnetic strap easily broke off after my daughter messed with it I'm shocked I decided to get another type of car seat but I was gifted this one I'm disappointed it looked so comfortable too but it's not safe since the belt kept undoing wish I'd get a replacement belt and the belt also easily tangled when I tried to make it bigger the harness tangled and would not move to allow it for a bigger fit

My son loves this seat
January 2, 2021
My son used to cry the first 5 minutes in his old seat. When he gets in the Maxi Cosi seat he kicks back and puts his arms on the sides, and looks like a little man in a big recliner.
The seat is well built and feels very comfortable.

This car seat was tricky to install but so soft and comfortable for my littles. I watched a tutorial YouTube video to help with the installation and that helped a lot. Don’t forget you can go to your local police or fire department and they will check it for you if you aren’t confident you installed your car seat correctly.
