When I first pulled this car seat out of the box, I was shocked at how heavy it was. It’s not the kind of car seat you remove from the base to carry an infant, and I think that’s the only negative thing, but easy to shrug off when you have a car seat as amazing as this one.
For one, your child can use it from the day they leave the hospital alllllll the way up to their booster days. Which is AMAZING to me, and makes it WELL worth the money.
Secondly, it is possibly the easiest install in a car seat. Idk why I started with any other car seat prior to this one, but I regret ever buying anything else because the clicktight mechanism on the Britax makes their car seats far superior than any other brand imo. You literally open up the clicktight compartment, run the seatbelt through, and once it “clicks” shut, the car seat is installed and does not budge.
I’m also really amazed at the harness adjuster and how incredibly easy it is. Long gone are the days of having to remove the straps from the car seat and thread them back through in the appropriate slots. This beast has a button at the top of the headrest you push and then pull it upwards, and it raises the straps for you. I may sound ridiculous to those that are already familiar with these luxuries, but hey... we started out using a very “low priced” evenflo infant car seat (and HATED it btw), and this upgrade is magical to me.
The padding and comfort is on luxury level. I’d sit in this car seat, okay. The cooling fabric is amazing for the Texas heat. I could go on and on.
This is THE car seat, y’all. Gonna buy another for our next baby too. ;)
