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.

We had to move up to a convertible car seat from our graco infant seat and planned on sticking with a similarly priced brand since we liked it so much. Being first time parents, we did an obscene amount on research and knew there were some things that were non-negotiable with our next car seat. Since we would be moving the seat between 2 cars, an easy installation was a must, as well as side impact protection, and a reinforced steel frame. We initially went to buy the safety 1st air or the evenflo model since they were in our budget, but after going over the safety features with an employee, we knew that our budget would have to bend a little. There was no denying that britax had the best customer AND safety reviews and even exceeded safety regulations...something the other car seats did not. We put our baby in the seat and she seemed to love the memory foam seats right away. Installation is a breeze and takes only a minute to get it secured and even includes a tether on the back of the seat to prevent the seat back flying forward in case of an accident, which I LOVE. The seat was also a perfect fit for my Chevy cruze. With our infant seat there was no room for rear passengers and the front seats had to be pushed forward as well...uncomfortable to say the least...but the britax fit rear facing SO comfortably we were surprised! There was plenty of room for another back passenger and the front seats could be put in any position, and even recline without interfering with the car seat. There's no rethread so adjusting the strap height is so simple. The only complaint I have is that there's some added rubber protectors around the chest strap that are bulky which make it hard to get a snug fit. And the fabric seat cover has no give which makes it keep coming undone around the top and sides. Both are only MINOR issues and are definitely looked past considering how safe we feel with our baby in it! We have only had it a few weeks but no signs of wear and tear and we are definitely happy with the decision we made!

When we installed rear-facing for our 11-mo old, it felt like she was slanted too far down and was leaning into the back seat. The "recline" bar was difficult to reach, because it was jammed against the back seat, and when we could reach it --- it was difficult to pull and recline. We returned the next day, and got a Chicco seat ... but all of the seats at Toys R Us were MUCH easier and smoother to recline, except this Britax .. so on that alone, I would suggest another seat.

      My seven month old baby boy is growing too fast, so when our doctor told us it was time for a new car seat I started asking around. The Britax Marathon was recommended by several people and has lived up to all expectations.

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

      We just switched our one year old to this car seat and we like it so far. The installation was easy and the manual is clear with answers to any questions that arose. I will say I wish the head restraints were more snug to a smaller child's head. Maybe an add-on like the booster pad that comes for babies 5-22 pounds. My husband loves that it's Made in USA and seems very sturdy and durable.

          We bought this for our 9month old baby because the old was just not comfortable and did not allow much space. With the new car seat it allows comfort, space , and most importantly top safety!

          So far we love this carseat. The reviews and safety features are what sold us and we are happy with everything so far. Very comfortable and the seat doesn't seam to take up too much room in the back of the car.

                              We already have 2 Britax Marathons (one in each car) for our 2.5 year old son. He seems very comfortable in it and we've been using the car seats for about a year and a half. With baby number 2 almost here, we needed to get another convertible car seat for my moms car to help out with my son. Eventually baby 2 will be in this new car seat. I went to Babies RUS to check out some less expensive car seats and I compared them to the Britax. Honestly the Britax just seems like a better, safer, car seat based on my research and looking at other seats in the store.
