Product Description

The BRITAX MARATHON™ ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES convertible car seat is designed for children rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 20 up to 65 pounds.

The MARATHON ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES also incorporates BRITAX Side Impact Protection, offers a no-rethread and quick-adjust five-point harness, multiple buckle and recline adjustments, and an easy-remove cover that also allows access to belt paths from the front of the seat.

        I bought this for my 8 month old daughter to transition from her infant seat. I already have a britax roundabout and have been pleased with britax. I am very pleased with this seat as well. I wish it had a cup holder built into the seat, but at least it came with a cup holder to attach to the side.

          Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Cactus Flower:

          Installing this carseat was so much easier than my Graco MyRide 60! My daughter is 18-months (99%ile for height) and she seems comfortable with extended rear facing in this seat. I would prefer that the seat recline a bit more for rear facing mode but I think that part of the problem is the slope of my rear seat (Mazda SUV) not the car seat. The pattern is really delicate with a nice splash of color without going overboard. The extra seat padding on this model also seems to make the seat quite comfortable.

            Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Cactus Flower:

            I had a Britax seat with my first daughter (who is now 8 years old) and loved it, but this time around I was swayed at first by some new competition. I went back and forth for weeks comparing the brands, models, etc.; in the end, I decided that I TRUST Britax, and didn't want to take a chance on buying something that I simply wasn't sure about. Britax, once again, did not disappoint- this seat is terrific! Super comfy, love the design and fabric (it is so easy to clean!), and it was easy to install. Pros all the way around- I can't think of a single negative thing to say about it.

              The first thing I am looking for when buying a car seat is safety. I can't believe some of the other car seats are even legal! It is cute, easy to clean easy to install and my daughter seems very comfortable! I wish I would have got this seat from when she was an infant, but I wanted a travel set. :( Why do they make it so complicated!!

                I love the carseat straps down so well and the seat stays in place.What I didn't like was that the strap attached to the lock doesn't expand so the crouch area seems a little snug.
