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 achieves revolutionary head safety through the use of BRITAX SafeCell Technology® in the base, integrated steel bars, and energy absorbing Versa-Tether® that work together to minimize head excursion and reduce the risk of head injury during a frontal impact. 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. The MARATHON ULTIMATE COMFORT SERIES includes memory foam in the seating area and head restraint to provide superior comfort for the child. An infant positioning pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning. A Cup Holder is also included for on-the-go travel convenience.

Features

  • Memory foam in seating area and head restraint for superior comfort
  • Side Impact Protection comprised of deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body
  • Base with SafeCell Technology® features SafeCells designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat
  • Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
  • HUGS™ with SafeCell Technology® manages crash energy and forward head movement while keeping the chest clip properly positioned.

I was recently in a front-end car accident in which the car (2006 Honda Civic) was totaled. My son (4 years old, 44 lbs.) was front-facing in the Marathon CS and sustained no injuries at all. He was up running around after the accident and complained of no pain in the days following. He only had minor seatbelt burn near his neck. It has been a week, and I am still in bed suffering from severe muscle spams and pain/whiplash. I am very pleased with this car seat and how it protected my son in the wreck. It is also very easy to install, easy to remove the covers to wash, fairly light weight. I highly recommend this seat. My son has used it since he outgrew the infant seat around age 1.

Doesn't Hold-up Over Time

I got this car seat for my son when he was 10 months and he is now 3. I've noticed that when he climbs in the seat cover keeps coming loose from the sides and I keep having to pull it over both sides but it won't stay put because it doesn't have those nice plastic tabs. Also, I can see the foam underneath when it does this and it looks like that is coming appart from the base of the car seat. My son only weighs 40 lbs and we are not rough on the car seats by any means so this is just a reflection the seat quality or manufacturing. I don't think I'll be buying another Britax for my next child.

Great fit and recline

By Anna

from Harrisburg, PA

Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Jet Set:

I struggled to find a seat that would fit my car without taking up too much space front to back, but still would be able to extended rear face and give me little guy room to move and recline enough to sleep without falling forward. This car seat is working out great!!! 10000 times better than the cheap seat that I bought.Totally worth the extra $. Just to add I did have to remove the rubber pads on the straps as well as the comfort pads because I didn't feel like I could get it tight enough with them installed.

Mostly wonderful!

By Careseatneeded

from MN, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Jet Set:

I love the look and comfort of this care seat. My child seems happy and comfortable in it. It reclines enough that even when he was little (7 months) he did not hang forward. The only issue I have is the straps becoming uneven often and it takes a lot of work to even them out,not sure why this happens. But overall,I love it.

Don't bother

By Shmadams06

from Austin, TX, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Jet Set:

My daughter is 40 lbs and four years old. She is already outgrowing the seat! She is slightly taller than the average girl. I'm so disappointed. We bought three of these for our kids expecting them to last much longer!! She is almost half the max weight and the straps are already getting right and below her shoulders. I would NOT by this again!

Easy to use, comfortable

By Chicago mom

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Jet Set:

We've used this product for both of our children since they were front-facing. My son is 4 years old and still has no problem fitting in the seat and he's 50% across the board on height and weight. To an earlier review complaining that her two year old couldn't fit in the seat while wearing a winter coat -- PLEASE do not strap your child in the car seat in a bulky winter coat!! It's not safe if there is too much bulk between the straps and your child. We live in freezing cold Chicago but it takes only a second to remove the bulky winter coat, strap them in, and then put a blanket over them or even their coat backwards over their arms. But I digress. Straps are super easy to adjust, without even removing the seat, and the kids have always been comfortable in them. We have a few cheaper car seats for secondary cars (i.e. grandma) and they are not as easy to tighten the straps. I also like how high the weight limit goes -- we'll be able to safely stay in these seats until booster time.

Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Jet Set:

We just finished installing this car seat and I love it! It was very easy to install and I was able to do it by myself without help from my husband. My daughter is comfortable and fell asleep on the first car ride.

Great Product

By 1sttimemommy

from Florida, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon UltimateComfort Series Convertible Car Seat - Jet Set:

We bought this about a month ago and so far it is great. My 16 month old is still getting used to the change in seat but it is so much easier to strap her up and I feel this model is extremely safe and sturdy. We are very happy with it so far as well. It was very easy to install. It also does not take up as much room as we expected it to. We have it in a Jeep Grand Cherokee in the middle and there is plenty of room still.
