- (June 28, 2008) As a logical solution at first we bought a car seat that could be also carried around the store, snapped on the stroller or carseat wheelcart or shopping cart. It was very natural choice and I feel it was a right one as having a newborn we wanted to have an option of not waking up the baby upon taking out of the car. The Graco SnugRide did the trick. It was just our choice but any of those I wuld recommend to start with. Then as a step two when the baby reached the weight and age border line for the front facing we started to look for an ultimate carseat knowing it should last few years. We did not rushed with the decission as we wanted to let the baby ride rear facing as long as poss
- (October 21, 2004) I am sure a lot of people who are reading this review now are hesitating if they should get the Britax Roundabout, Marathon, or the Evenflo Triumph. My wife and I have decided to go with the Roundabout, and I think we have made the right choice. Here are the reasons why we didn't pick the other two. The Evenflo Triumph is heavier, the cover material is not as soft, and it doesn't feel as sturdy as the Britax. What about the Marathon? Choosing between the Roundabout and the Marathon was difficult as both of them are very nice. The Marathon is bigger, heavier, and more expensive, but it can last longer as it can support up to 65 lbs. However, we are not sure if the Marathon will fit in our car
- (August 25, 2004) I searched the web for other parent's comments on car and booster seats. Many were very happy with suggesting the Britax Marathon. Britax has tested their seats in Europe, which apparently tests at a higher speed than the U.S. I wasn't totally convinced that the Britax was a safer seat as it too has the molded plastic seats, but with added foam that is used in bicycle helmets it seemed reasonable. The Britax is pretty well padded, but the Eddie Bauer 3in1 seat is too. Although it makes sense that a 3in1 carseat might be the only one a parent would need, consider the height limitations. My son is a bit above average in height and would have surely outgrown the height limitations on the Britax

- (08/29/2013) Love this seat. Some reviews are right that it is big, and might be difficult if you drive a small compact or sedan, but for a crossover or SUV, it is perfect.
- (08/11/2013) l bought this seat in beige/brown color last week, and l want to write my review in the black color seat, as this is a color that many people prefer. Just good things l have to say about this CONVERTIBLE car seat. First, extremely comfortable. Second, the user's manual is so clear and makes easy to adjust belts. Third, the fabric is very soft and unique, l love it AND you have the option to remove the fabric to clean it if necessary. Four. It has 3 seat reclining positions. Five. Inside the fabric, on the top, right side, there is a pocket to keep the user's manual (awesome!). Six. The headrest can be lift as your child grows. Seven, the compartment for a bottle/cup is a feature that can help your child to develop a new skill, do not you think? Talking about specifically the beige/brown color, well well well WE LOOOOOVE IT! The beige is not as clear as it seems in internet, it is more like taupe and the brown is as shown. FABULOUS! l read the previous review about the size of this seat, and l think, it is a much bigger seat than an infant one, because it is a convertible seat. So, sooner or later, you have to shift to a seat that is big enough for a Todd, unless you want to put your child in a non comfy seat. My baby is 13 months old, and we decided to buy a new seat that keeps him comfortable during our trips to NY, the mall, and everywhere. Our son is worth it, so is yours!!!! This is an investment not an expense.
