Returned Marathon G4.1 and bought this clicktight instead. This one has wider space, softer cushion and more reclining positions. Hopefully our baby girl will enjoy her ride when she arrived next month!

Money well spent!
December 10, 2015
So far we've only used it once (b/c we live in NYC and don't have a car), but it was super easy to install (though a bit tough to push and lock in place - maybe the belt was too taught?). Was looking for something easy to install since we use car rentals and every car is different. And mainly looked for safety. Can't really go wrong with a Britax! So far so good! My daughter slept in it and seemed cozy.

Great car seat
December 5, 2015
The car seat arrived earlier than expected. My child, who hates his old car seat, actually fell asleep in on a first day. Pretty easy to install. It is a little bit on a heavy side and if you have a small car, it's harder to fit in (it would fit comfortably in my husbands car who drives Ford Focus).

Delivers on ease of Install

The clicktight system works really well. This is my second Britax, but the first without the latch system. I never like the latch system as I find it to be a major pain and avoid moving the seat at all costs. The Marathon is an easy install and allows me to move it the seat from car to car with confidence and speed. It is heavy though and wife will not lift it to change cars. The seat angle indicator is set up for a flat surface. It will change if your car has sloped seat and both of ours do slope. This always results in the seat being more upright than we would prefer. Then you have to take it back out to adjust it. I don't like that because you end up guessing a bit on where you think the right angle will be. It's not terribly hard but it is inconvenient. Our only other complaint is the straps get twisted a lot, but that seems to be true for every car seat. Overall it works well if you want to be able to install quickly and with confidence.

Great convertible car seat - EASY to install!
October 22, 2015
I bought this convertible car seat for my 18 mo daughter. We ordered it on a Thursday night and had it by the next Tuesday! This has been one of the best online purchasing experiences we've ever had. Plus, the car seat is top rated, easy to install and remove, and has a great pattern and design. My daughter loves her "moo" car seat. It's also has great padding and seat height adjustments. I just can't say enough good things about this seat!

We absolutely love this Car seat. It's stupidly easy to install, and the install is tight. I spent hours researching the best and safest Car seat for our 7 month old for the size car we have. I drive a 2009 Jeep Patriot, and we knew from the get go finding a Convertible car seat we could keep our son rearfacing in would be a challenge with limited space in our backseat. & this seat is a WINNER! My son would fight me everytime I tried to buckle him into his infant, and with this seat he's buckled in and no tears are shed. Installing was quick and easy behind the passenger seat. My son can sit up unassisted so we no longer need him reclined as much so it takes up even less space than his infant seat did. & im able to sit upfront again. The only con we had is we had to move the buckle to the outter slot. I'm an avid CSFTL member & have heard the pro's and con's of this seat, and the pro's out weigh the con's. I had to teach my husband to do the pinch test, to avoid over tightening on the thighs. I'm a very tiny woman even after having a baby. And my 98lb self was able to securely and tightly install this seat all by myself with one try with the seatbelt. I am very pleased with this seat. This thing is a beast. We will def be purchasing further CT seats for our future babies. The memory foam is a win for my son. He fell asleep instantly. And no longer cries, because his infant seat had hardly any padding. I love the HUGS feature I feel like it will keep my straps from twisting as well. And my son just looks super comfy in this seat.
ProsTight easy install. Memory foam padding is amazing. Harness padding win!
ConsHeavy only because of the steel frame. But my 98lb self could carry it into our car just fine. The fabric of the seat is new so it smells weird. Put a new air freshener in your car after you install it. Short buckle. But isn't an issue if moved.
Best UsesEasy tight install. We def recommend this for compact cars. This is a compact seat, even when rearfacing as long as your baby can sit unassisted. Less recline saves room.

I've had this seat for a while now and I love it other than the car seat cover is not removable! We have the stomach bug here at our house and of course she puked in her seat with a cover that won't come off! I'm an idiot for not checking that prior to buying it but I honestly thought all seat covers came off! Boy was I wrong! Good luck

So easy to install
September 1, 2015
I bought this for my 2 year old grandchild so we would be able to take her places without the hassle of moving her car seat from her parents' car. Her mom picked it out as she wanted a quality safe seat. It is easy for us to use, my granddaughter loves it because it is a little different (click tight feature) and the purple color is very nice. The cover holds up well and overall this was a great purchase.

I debated long and hard on this- there are more and less expensive Britax seats, and I wanted to get the right one. I love the cowmooflage, and I love this seat. Installation was pretty easy, and it fit great into our Toyota corolla. The cushioning is nice, and it seems like it offers great protection for our 16 month old. There is no cup holder, so that could be an issue down the line, but for now, we love this seat!

Easy to Install
July 31, 2015
I chose this car seat because I wanted something that would be relatively easy to switch between our vehicles. Although nothing will be as easy as the click base system of our infant seat, I think the Clicktight technology is great for a convertible seat. I'd find it hard to imagine another convertible is easier to install. This seat fits well in both our Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport (2015) and Subaru Outback (2014). I also like that it is rated for rear facing for up to 40 lbs and my son seems to be comfortable in the seat.

CPST & mother of two gives this seat a thumbs up!
July 14, 2015
As a child passenger safety technician with two children of my own, I was looking for a seat that was easy for grandparents to install correctly. This one is it!! As simple as running the seat belt through the appropriate path, buckling it, then snapping the car seat shut. And it doesn't budge, which gives peace of mind to so many parents that are trying to install a seat but are discouraged by even the slightest movement. I love love love this seat. I also own other brands, and this is by far my favorite seat because it has so many features that make for a comfortable and safe ride for parent and child. There is no rethreading of the harness because you can move it up and down as needed in a matter of seconds and you can be sure that it is safe, with no doubt that it is correctly threaded or secured. No need to worry with splitter plates, ect.

We received two Marathon CT infant car seats for our twins. We loved the features listed especially the adjustability options and they seam very comfortable. Cons, very difficult to install, couldn't close the click tight once we placed the straps, the strap was too taught and the top wouldn't close, then once we did get it closed and needed to open it up to adjust the recline we couldn't get the strap loosened. Having no cup holder is a downer (especially considering the price), leg room when rear facing (kids look uncomfortable), the harness strap and release are difficult to operate in the rear facing position. Other than that, after 1 month with them we are pleased. Oh, and they are really heavy, so we won't be taking them out not that they are in.

Straps too short
June 2, 2015
I like the ease of installation with the Click Tight model, which is why we purchased it; however, the shoulder straps seem much shorter than the regular Marathon, which we also own. No matter how much I have inspected the straps and tried to pull them out farther, it doesn't seem possible. I'm afraid that as my child grows, it is going to be difficult to fit him into the seat. Had I known that the straps were not the same length, I would have purchased another Marathon rather than the Click Tight.

Everything I wanted!
May 13, 2015
My son seems very happy and comfortable in his new seat. I was tired of carrying him around in his "bucket seat" he is 7 mos. old and approx. 18 lbs. I have a Chevy Malibu and there is not a lot of room for me to get him in and out in the rear facing position, but I believe this will get better as he gets older, I may try reclining it a little more too. The size of the seat is very similar to other makes and models of seats. It is a wonderful seat, very well made. Very happy with the purchase. I feel my son is very safe and I have a little over a year to keep him in rear facing position, so I can deal with that. The click tight installation method is very easy to use, if you have any issues watch a you tube video installation, very easy!

I purchased this car seat to replace my son's infant seat that he grew out of. I did a lot of research about convertible car seats, I wanted one that was safe and very easy to install. I especially wanted a seat that could be installed easily with the seat belt and not the latch system, since that now has weight restrictions. Well this seat was super easy to install, fits great in my Santa Fe, and my son loves it. I love the click-tight technology!

Britax has great quality, but too stiff
May 4, 2015
We hate this seat. Perhaps we purchased a lemon. The straps are so stiff that you need to be really strong and very vigilant to make sure it has been tightened well enough. I cannot use the seat at all, my husband needs to pull and loosen the straps. Terrible product.

Perfect Car Seat for my daughter!!
April 29, 2015
We had ordered it and it came really quickly! The car seat was in perfect condition and my little girl wanted to just sit right in it right away! We put the seat in my Equinox and it fit perfectly in both positions but because of my daughters size and age she must still rear face until age 2. She loves her seat and will fall asleep in it easily! It is very comfortable for her! We love all the protection that Britax seats have to offer! When our next little one comes along, we will be purchasing Another Britax from again!

April 28, 2015
Love this car seat and so does my daughter. Not only do I love the look, it is very sturdy and comfortable. It also fits nicely in the back of my passat which I was concerned about. The install and adjustments took a while, so its a tad bit complicated (or it may just be me) But overall I am happy with my decision and will definitely be purchasing more britax products in the future!
Proscomfortability, sturdy, stable, lots of cushion. (has a level indicator on the side to show you the best position for your child )
Consthe click tight is hard to open and so is button where the belts click in on the child. my grandmother with arthritis is unable to operate it so we had to get another carseat for her while the baby is in her care.

April 24, 2015
Well, when my son is under 2 yr, he often had trouble in sitting in the infant car seat (GRACO). I think the GRACO infant car seat is not comfortable, and does not have enough space for the baby over 1yr but under 2 yr. When I decided to change our car seat, I have made lots of investgations. And most of my friends recommand BRITAX. After comparing the space and the price we could afford, I chose the BRITAX. Now, My son likes it, does not cry any more when we put him in the car seat. I must to say the design of the BRITAX is comfortable and large enough for the babies over 2 yr.

The installation is easy as advertised! The use of the optional tether adds complexity/time, and it doesn't really feel optional when it's your baby's safety potentially at risk (that's why we buy Britax right?). After a week, our babe got sick in the car so we had to wash several pieces/parts and taking it apart to clean up and put back together went smoothly. Very nice car seat and best price was found here!

Better fit for older baby
April 13, 2015
Compared with the Chicco Nextfit, which we purchased for our other vehicle, this carseat doesn't fit a baby as well. Our child just grew out of his infant seat and is about 22 lbs and 30 inches tall. The straps don't fit well now, and there's not much head support. The car seat was easy to install though and will be fine once he's a bit bigger.

They went too cheap on some aspects of this seat
April 12, 2015
I really wanted to love this car seat but I honestly regret buying it. My biggest complaint is that they used very cheap components in the lower latch connector hooks, lower connector adjuster release button and finally the recline adjustment handle. These three pieces are not made well and make installation of the car seat very difficult. I know that they recommend using a seat belt for connection but the center seatbelt in my 2012 Honda pilot comes from the ceiling so it is better to use the latch connection points. The cheapness of these parts made it so I had to get help from my husband to get the car seat installed and then uninstalled. At around 120lbs I was not strong enough and did not weigh enough to get the click tight to close properly when installed rear facing. When I wanted to move the seat to another car I was not strong enough to undo the click tight. I again needed my husband to do it. I compete in triathlons so I should be strong enough to install a car seat. How safe is a car seat that has to be installed by heavy strong man? What if I need to move it to another car without the help of a guy? So other things I wish I would have know before buying this seat. I can not overemphasizes the cheapness of the lower latch hooks, lower adjust release button and lean angle handle. The hooks are very hard to connect and unconnect. If the car seat is installed rear facing it is impossible to adjust the lean angle without redoing the latches again. However, the lean angle changes once its installed due to the force towards the latch area. Finally, I think that the manual or the britax website needed to be more specific on the location of the model number (its under the fabric by the child's left leg). I should have spent half the amount of money and gotten a different seat. Very disappointed.

I really like the size of the base of this carseat. It doesn't feel like it takes up the whole backseat. I also like how easy it is to push the button to loosen the straps. I wish the straps would stay to the sides better when putting my child in the seat. My only other negative comment is with the removable cushion for the seat and buckle. They don't stay in place as well as I'd like and sometimes the straps get twisted in the cushion.

We bought this seat for our seven month old son who had grown out of his infant carrier (too long and too heavy for momma to carry). He loves the new seat and I feel really good about how safe the seat is. The construction seems really good and once installed the seat doesn't budge. My only complaint would be that the straps are a little hard to loosen up. Hoping that it's the newest that is causing them to be so rigid.

Great Car Seat
March 18, 2015
We purchased this car seat for our daughter because of a minor car accident. Initially, I replaced our original bucket seat with the Graco MyRide 65, but no matter how hard I tried, we just couldn't get the harness to tighten enough to protect our daughter. We had also replaced a faulty Graco jogging stroller with the Britax B-Agile and love, love, love it. Because of the great experience with that product, we decided to ship back the MyRide and bought the Marathon instead.This seat was super easy to install. I had nothing but trouble trying to get our bucket seat in and out and my husband always had to do it. He hasn't had to help me at all with the Marathon. I will say that the ClickTight feature, which is SO fantastic for getting a super tight install (this seat doesn't wiggle even a little!), is also one of the most annoying things EVER. In order to get the seat out, you have to release the ClickTight, which involves turning this little disc until a part of seat opens up. Unfortunately, it's really challenging to turn the disc until you've done it a few times. I ended up having to break out a set of pliers to help me break it in. Annoying, yes, but at the same time, it keeps my baby safe, so I'll deal with it. They don't call it ClickTight for nothing! Other awesome things about this seat: it's so cushy and cozy, the cow print is adorable, the harness tightens and loosens without struggling, adjusting the harness height is so easy, it's easy to see what recline level you're at and where you should be (there are 7 recline options) based on your baby's size, it's not gigantic. The Marathon is a really great car seat and is totally worth every penny. Highly recommend!
Pros- ClickTight feature makes for an extremely tight install - Harness is super easy to use; no struggling with tightening and loosening - No having to thread harness straps to adjust height; there is a lever that does the work for you - Very, very easy and quick install - Solid product; you can literally see and feel how well designed this is - Super padded for great comfort - Adorable cow print
Cons- ClickTight latch is tricky to open the first few times

Heavy and hard to install
March 18, 2015
This car seat is difficult to install, especially if you take the cover off to wash. There are multiple pieces to remove when washing. It is very difficult to get the car seat tight when using the latch system. It also is very heavy, so if you travel frequently, this is not the seat for you.

March 14, 2015
The install was so easy! This is our third britax so we knew we would love the seat but never imagined you could install a seat in a minute. The crotch strap had to be moved to the outside for our 6 month old and felt very stiff and awkward but after 2 weeks of use it feels more normal.
ProsEasy install Nicely padded

Very Comfortable
March 8, 2015
I purchased this seat for my 10 month old daughter. She really seems comfortable in the seat and I love the twilight color! The seat belt install is really easy, but I feel as though the click tight instructions are a little vague about how tight to get the seat belt, and I had tightened it too much the first install. The seat is not as bulky as some, but is still pretty heavy, and of course reenforced with the safecell, so I feel as though my child is safe. There were some imperfections in the stitching, but at least you can remove the cover to wash, unlike another seat I had looked at. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase, and don't regret spending the money considering I should get at least 2.5-3 years usage.

ProsEasily installed Excellent safety ratings "Latch" option
By Kristadc
overall good
March 6, 2015
The seat was hard to figure out adjustments. You have to have it in a more upright position to have the strap length necessary to fastened in your child. Once we figured that out it has worked great. At first we had it too reclined (and rear facing) and there was hardly any strap length. As you adjust the tilt and the back height then the straps are longer. Otherwise a good car seat.

My husband & I only use Britax because it's the safest brand out there. Yes, they are the most expensive but you get what you pay for :) When it was time to upgrade our son to a "big boy" car seat, we had no doubt in our mind that we were going to buy a Britax! I did a little research & found AlBee Baby! I can't believe we got such a huge discount off the car seat & free shipping! Score! Our son absolutely LOVES his new car seat as well! It's so comfy for him. Half the time, he is so quite (which is very unusual for him), we think he is sleeping back there but really he just chilling & enjoying the ride :) Now, the car seat itself is pretty heavy but easy to transfer from one car to the next with the new Click Tight system! I was a little sketchy on how safe & easy this new system can be. But let's just say, when I needed to transfer his car seat to another vehicle, it was strapped in so well, I needed to use plyers to unlock the system! It's that strong & safe!!! And doesn't move at all once clicked in. The car seat also has 7 recline positions but isn't so big that it won't fit in your vehicle. You know how you get a car seat & you're like "Well I don't own a semi for this thing to fit in, now what am I going to do?!" I have a sedan & it fits perfectly in there! I've been recommending this car seat left & right to friends who are looking to upgrade as well.
Pros-Easy to install -Very comfy for baby - Super safe with steel frame

This seat is awesome! I am using it rear facing for my 18 month old in my husband's car. I literally had this seat installed within 5 minutes, and I'm sure I can accomplish it even quicker now that I'm familiar with the installation. Most importantly I am confident the installation is proper and safe. I would most definitely recommend this seat!

This was so easy to install! As a petite person, I have struggled with installing car seats in the past, yet I was able to secure this Britax Marathon ClickTight car seat very quickly and easily. The instructions were very simple and straightforward. I am glad that I chose this seat for my son. I feel very safe with him in this car seat. Thank you so much for designing such a user-friendly car seat!

Easy to install
February 24, 2015
This is really easy to install. We took a trip across country and our baby slept for most of the trip. It seems really comfy. The only small downside is that it is pretty heavy. It would be a pain if it is being constantly moved from car to car. I would buy again in an instant. It is worth the money!

I was hesitant to buy this car seat online, but I'm glad I did. I absolutely love it and has great installation. 30 seconds and I know it's installed correctly. The fabric is a silky like material and won't cause the kids to sweat in the summer time excessively like other materials. 100% satisfied.

This car seat is not only beautiful but the installation was completely effortless and I know that my baby is safe. The seat is just as snug and tight as the Britax base we had with a somewhat similar installation system. The installation really is foolproof and I'm glad we can use this seat for a few years, at least.

February 16, 2015
We've had this seat for almost two months, and I'm weirdly obsessed with it. It's perfect. We tried the Chicco Nextfit first, but it was humongous and the straps were impossible to tighten correctly, making it a safety issue. The Clicktight models are easy to install, look great, seem comfortable, and are EASY TO TIGHTEN and fit correctly and safely!! We are currently using rear-facing and have had absolutely no problems. I do wish the reclines were numbered or labeled like the nextfit, but that's my only complaint. LOVE it.

BEST CAR SEAT WE HAVE EVER OWNED!! (And we've owned a lot!)
February 8, 2015
I love this car seat. Before purchasing I reviewed the one and two star comments about this and other ClickTight Britax car seats. Two common themes were: the straps got stuck and the ClickTight feature was nearly impossible to open once installed. Let me address these features....ClickTight....I'm glad it is hard to open! My 14 month old plays with the button and if it were easy we might have a problem. However, when I do need to open it to move the car seat, a little push down on the seat is all it needs to "loosen" the tension and make the open feature easy to twist open. Straps getting stuck....before installing I made sure all the strap pathways were clear and functioned as they should. I haven't had any problems. In the past we have had Graco (6) and Diono (2) car seats which I have loved. Unfortunately though, we were in a car accident (everyone is ok) and had to replace all 4 of our current car seats. The Gracos and Dionos are great forward facing in our new van; however, rear facing, I just couldn't get a good (tight) installation. I tried every! single! rear facing/convertible cars seat in the store (17!) because I didn't want to spend the big bucks that the Britax ClickTight demanded. Unfortunately, once comparing the installation to the others, there was no other option. It is solid! No movement at the belt pathway or near the head. It fits in the van so that it doesn't interfere with the driver's seat when it is in the rear most position and slightly reclined (my hubs is very tall). It is easy to get the baby in and out and she seems so much happier in this car seat than her infant seat (granted, she was nearing the max size limits). For me, this is the easiest car seat to install that we have every owned. I love this car seat! I'd buy this car seat again! We believe in extended rear-facing so I'm happy that it goes up to 40 pounds rear facing....approximately age 4 for us based on my older kids.

Not worth the money
February 6, 2015
I find that this seat is not very user friendly. It is a heavy seat, which I am sure helps it to be safe but the tether straps are hard to undo once they are in place, the seat cover is very complicated to take off, you have to use a screwdriver to losen it around the clicktight latch, and it comes off in several pieces, not something you can whip off and throw in the washer if it gets soiled. Also using the seat belt was a nuisance, the shoulder strap stayed in the way so baby's legs always hit it either going in or out of the seat. Once the seat is installed it is hard to reach the lever to use the reclining positions, so why have them if you can't adjust once seat is installed? Also the strap does not tighten evenly on my GD, one side is always looser than the other and it never feels snug enough to be safe. After using it for a few weeks trying to get used to it we decided this is not the seat for us, too many problems with the design of the seat, GD will be potty training soon, I do not want to go through what you have to go through every time she has an accident just to wash the seat cover. Do people who design these chairs ever actually use them? I often wonder. We are ordering the chicco next fit, which is what I was going to go with in the first place, should have trusted my instincts!
ConsSeat cover is not one piece, needs a screwdriver to take off, screw fell inside the car seat when I tried to take it off. Seatbelt gets in way in rear facing posiition, straps do not tighten evenly on each side and one side is always loose. All others already mentioned also. It does not come with premium tethers, tethers are hard to remove from car once seat installed rear facing.

February 4, 2015
We've only had our protects a few weeks but our son loves it and so do we. Albee had great service for shipping and tracking and I car seat came on time, which is a good thing because her son had just hit 20 pounds and reach a limit of our previous car seat. One thing that I would suggest for first-time users is that if it's wintertime keep the car seat inside and adjusted to your child while in the comfort of your warm house. Once you figured out where you want all the buckles and straps then follow the guide to install it into your vehicle. Once again we love the car seat. It is extremely heavy duty and durable and very comfortable because her son how's the sleep that every time.
