Overall great with 1 flaw
June 2, 2016
I've been using this carseat for a few months now and overall it is great. Easy to install and adjust, relatively easy to get my 9 month old in and out of. There is just 1 "flaw" with the design, and that is with the lap straps. They do not have padding and when my son is wearing shorts (and we live in TX so that's a lot) they leave major marks on his little legs, so I can't imagine it's very comfortable for him. PLEASE figure something out for this!

I bought my Marathon almost 6 years ago and it has been by far the best purchase! It's easy to install, simple to adjust and fits such a broad range of children sizes comfortably. I've used it for newborn all the way up to preschool. My babies all hated their car seats until I switched them into the Brotax Marathon and once I did they travelled so much better. I will be buying a new one when this one expires at the end of this year!

Easy and Safe! Can't beat it.
June 2, 2016
We had to buy two car seats for our twin girls. These have been great for them. They are currently 2 years old and can climb in almost and assist with strapping up and being safe! They LOVE their car seats. We bought an additional Marathon for our large 1 year old and it's almost TOO comfortable for him! He falls asleep almost as soon as he's placed in it!

Great fit, comfort, and ease of use
June 2, 2016
We have two of these and they work great for the twins. Love the velcro on the sides to move straps out of the way. Easy to use with the latch system. Good angle for them to sit up and still see everything around them. Neck/shoulder pads are comfortable, seems comfortable for them to fall asleep in as well.

I've now bought two of these (one for mine and husband's cars) and my son loves them! He's super comfy and extremely safe. It's very easy to help him in and out of this seat. We love Britax products (also have infant seat and stroller) and will continue using and recommending their products!

Easy install
June 2, 2016
Install is easy. All you do is push the car seat clip against the clip in between the seat and you can hear a click and it is done. This is rear facing. Forward facing still click into seat but also hook top hook to hook behind head rest. Child spills something on the car seat, just pull off wash and dry on low or let air dry. As the child grows just pull head rest up. This also brings the shoulder straps up as well. No need to remove and place straps back like other car seats. I bought 2 years ago and loved it.

Worth the money
May 31, 2016
This is the second Britax Marathon car seat I have purchased. I bought this second one because I wanted another car seat for our other vehicle. It is so easy to install. There are two separate LATCH clamps that make it easy to insure this car seat is installed properly. If you are able to sit in the car seat and then pull those straps tight, your vehicle will rock but that car seat will not move. I tried another cheaper car seat that didn't have these separate latch clamps and I could not get it installed safely, it rocked side to side too much. So I decided to spend the extra money and get the Britax Marathon. This car seat has a metal frame which is something I haven't seen on other car seats. I feel that this car seat would be very safe in case of an accident. The cushions on this particular ultra comfort system must feel like a pillow. They are thicker than the other Britax Marathon I bought a couple years ago. These cushions are thick and there is an extra foam insert under the car seat material. The foam is a little thicker on the new Britax. The car seat is a little heavy, but I wouldn't change a thing. I would spend the money again and recommend it to everyone.

I was able to get this car seat on sale for $199. I did a lot of review and found that this car seat is good for safety with out the extra stuff that jacks up price. It fits well in my SUV and my husbands truck, it is a little difficult to adjust to the 2 different seat angles. My son is able to sleep well on long car rides.

We have been using two Britax Roundabout carseats since our oldest daughter was born in 2009. Sadly, after two more children, those seats have expired. With our fourth child on the way the decision to replace the expired seats with another Britax was easy. After a lot of research I chose to purchase the Marathon as opposed to the Roundabout this time. I'm so glad I did. I thought my Roundabout was easy to use. The Marathon was SO simple to install, takes up even less space in the car, and is much more comfortable for our 2 1/2 year old son. I can easily adjust the straps to accommodate my four and six year old daughters as well. They are all fighting to sit in this new carseat. I only wish I could have purchased two more! I can not say enough good things about this seat. If you are hesitating about purchasing this carseat, don't. It's well worth the money, and will last you for many years to come.

This is the best value for the money. Clicktight was not worth the extra money as it really doesn't save any time in any aspect of buckling your child or removing and reinstalling the car seat.

I have one complaint. The durability of the cover. One of the things we looked for when purchasing a car seat was the ability to take the cover off to wash it. We've had the car seat for about 2 years and have washed the cover (as instructed) maybe 3 times. The seat is fraying and coming apart near the head and down by the legs. It looks horrible. It's very disappointing considering the cost of the car seat. We are outside the warranty so we can't return it. We purchased a Safety 1st car seat for my husbands car and the covering has held up way better. Maybe I got a fluke cover but it's time for a convertible for our second now and unfortunately I won't be spending the money on a Britax again.

This is the third Britax Marathon seat we've owned. The seat cover is not as soft as the other models we had before and that is my only complaint. It's not itchy, just not as soft. The seat was pretty easy to install and the straps are easy to adjust.
ProsEasy to adjust the straps, compared to older versions
ConsFabric not as soft as older versions

I've been been very pleased with both of my britax carseats. However, one of the covers was not wearing very well so I called customer service to see if I could order a replacement. They took my information and said "okay, that will ship out tomorrow and arrive in 2-5 business days." No charge. Just like that! I could not be more pleased!

We have an older marathon and were impressed with the updates on this model. We love the back belt adjuster that you can adjust for height by a simple click and pull instead of taking belts in and out of the back of the car seat. The new seat base is nice because you can set the seat on the ground without it toppling over. Our baby is 19 lbs, 3 months old and the infant seat rest works great. Finally, installation is quick and simple especially if you have a latch system in your vehicle. You can't beat Albee baby's prices or the fact that britax has the same price on this seat that they did roughly 10 years ago.

Wish I bought another car seat
February 4, 2016
I bought this car seat just before my child's first birthday and have only had it for 16 months. When I went to put my child in her car seat this morning, I noticed that the blue rear facing lock off was up in the air. It turns out it had cracked and popped up and is now totally unusable. The clamp was always difficult to use, but in my car it was the only option to put my child rear facing in the middle seat. I am really disappointed because now I need to go get a new car seat. This car seat should not be advertised to grow with your child when it's poorly made. For further clarification, the car seat has only left the car about 5 times in the last 16 months so its not as if the clamp was even getting open and closed that much. I will refrain from ever purchasing another Britax car seat product. I honestly do not understand why this car seat gets such glowing reviews unless people who are having problems aren't reviewing the product.

We have not used this particular seat yet but my son has one that is a different design but the same model and it works great. It's very sturdy and feels safe. My son never complains about comfort.

I've had these for over a year. After a couple washes the cover fell apart; the seems came undone and the edges all frayed. My girls are tall for their age and I got these because they said they would accommodate 49 inches. Kate is 42 inches and with the seat back all the way up the straps are just slightly above her shoulders. She will never make it to 49 inches and meet the "at or above the shoulder" requirements. When we installed these rear facing we had to put towels under them to meet the proper alignment, we have a Sienna so I'm not sure if that is a problem with our vehicle. Under the seat cover is a half inch thick layer of foam and that is all there is for comfort; that also breaks apart if you have to wash it. I did a lot of research and this is supposed to be a good product. If this is good I'd hate to see the bad. There is a sturdy looking bar along the sides that look like it would give pretty good protection; this perceived protection is why I'm giving it a 2 and not lower. The rest of the impact protection is just compressed Styrofoam. Those flaps on the head rest that look like they might surround the child's head are just for show and don't actually fold to cushion her head when she falls asleep. Every single time I put the girls in them I have to raise the chest buckle, adjust the shoulder pads, and untwist the straps. The Velcro to hold the straps to the edge is a nice concept but it doesn't line up and is worthless.

Great car seat
November 18, 2015
The directions for installing the car seat were actually quite easy to follow and the seat seems to be well-made overall. We have a Prius, and it fits just fine in the back seat, with the only issue being that because the rear Prius doors are lower profile, there's not much clearance for getting the little one in and out. (We installed it rear-facing -- our daughter is under 22 pounds.) But we've had it installed for just over a week and I'm already used to it and finding that easier. The car seat was delivered in two days, too! We originally chose this car seat because Britax has an excellent safety reputation and seems to do a better job overall not using untested fire retardant chemicals, but it's also just a great car seat. I can imagine it will hold up well for a number of years.

We have had ours for about 5 months and seems to be very sturdy. I like the gel-like shoulder does my daughter as they make for a nice cushy "pillow" for her to rest her head on when she falls asleep in the car. Britax just came out with new options for material that is super cute. We have the older version which is like a white/black blend. Not the cutest ever but i'm not going to complain as we got a great deal on the carseat. Very easy to install! Quality product overall. Only thing is that for some reason I have a tough time unclicking the strap around the legs. But otherwise no complaints so far. :)

Sun damage disappointing
October 4, 2015
I love so many things about this seat: ease of installation, ease of use of buckles, comfort. But I'm disappointed that the covering on the back of the headrest is breaking down: small, black fibers spreading around my car immediately within a couple of days of each vacuuming. I'm assuming this is due to sun damage as I have had it in the forward-facing position for more than 2 years and I have a sedan and not a van or SUV.

Big britax fan!
September 17, 2015
I first experienced a britax seat w my first child, now 8. I bought him the britax frontier. Quality...through and through. When my new baby, now 5 months old went to his 4 month well visit he weighed 19lbs2oz. The time had come to find a convertible car seat. Right away I leaned toward britax. I have a Saturn ion. My car is small, mostly plastic...and I drive 70 miles of round trips a couple times a week on a highway and into the city of buffalo, N.Y.. crazy, disrespectful drivers. So I knew I needed some serious side impact protection and a steel frame. High weight limit for my big baby boy, as I hope to rear face him til he's 2! His daddy mentioned he'd love a green seat. Then I came across the britax marathon in kiwi! Love it. Installed easy. Easy to use. I wasn't big on the infant positioning pad or the huge belt protectors on the neck straps. I ended up getting thinner ones and not using the pad. All in it. Glad a spent a little extra for the britax!!

September 1, 2015
The Marathon is a great carseat. Having all the safety features we want and the ease of adjustment makes us very happy. Tightening of straps took a little getting used to for our rear facing 19 month old because we are not used to the grey pieces by the chest clip, but it just took a few times of working with it to get it down. It feels very sturdy and yet feels comfortable for our child. We are very happy with this purchase.

This car seat is extremely well made, as well as attractive. It fits behind the driver seat of our Subaru Forester (rear-facing) without my husband having to sacrifice leg room when he drives. We love the adjustable head rest/shoulder strap feature. The seat includes a cushion for babies 22 pounds and less; however, I wouldn't put very small babies in this seat. The provided padding still leaves lots of room for heads to flop around in. We used an infant car seat until the baby outgrew it.

Comfortable, Safe, Somewhat difficult to use
August 9, 2015
Bottom line is that I like this car seat, my son is comfortable and safe, and I'm glad someone else bought it for me. The major drawback is it just seems overthought and difficult to use at times. It took me a while to figure out how to easily adjust the harness straps to get him in and out and it has these "safe cell" things on the harness that always seem to be digging at him in the face. But after using it for 6 months I have figured out some of the ins and outs. The pros are harness straps adjustable from the front, VERY easy to install - I just love the latch hook connectors, my son seems really comfortable (as long as I have made sure there aren't any twisted straps or things pinching him, and I know Britax makes safety a top priority.

We have had the marathon now for a little over six months. I should have bought this a longtime ago. My son is almost two and only purchased it because we needed a car seat that was forward facing. I will be buying this much earlier for our next child rear facing. This car seat is very comfy and very sturdy. Easy to install. It's is bigger then most car seats but I like that because I know it's built well. Also is heavier the other car seats but again it makes me feel that the car seat is safer because it not make out of cheap light plastic.also very easy to clean and keep clean! Highly recommend this.

Only one everything else!!
July 21, 2015
We bought this car seat for our now 3 year old son when he was 7 months old and had exceeded the 30" height limit for his infant car seat. We absolutely love all the convienent features like the adjustable shoulder strap system, the removable cover and ease of installation. My only complaint would be that the crotch buckle has two positions. When in the first position for smaller children, the access hole in the cover for the second position allows for the child to reach the release lever for the shoulder straps. I looked back one day to see my then two year old sitting in his seat with the straps completely loosened out as far as they would go. He was able to reach his fingers in the crotch buckle slot in the cover and pull up on the release button. I just hand stitched the hole shut to block access and then ripped out the thread when it was time to move the crotch buckle. Poor design, easy fix!! We just switched my three year old to a 3 in 1 harness booster and moved my 5 month old into this seat!! We love it!!

I have three children whose ages are 19, 13, and 4. Needless to say, I have seen many changes in baby and child "gear" over the years. I saved money when my eldest was born, so I could upgrade the carseat provided by the hospital to a Britax by the time he was ready for a front facing seat. Since then, I've used various boosters, carseats, etc. Without exaggeration, I have probably purchased and used at least 10-12 seats between my family, grandparents, etc. I can say with conviction that this seat is the easiest to clean, install and use. Thank God for the LATCH system! I read one negative review on here, and I am wondering if the writer has ever used a carseat before, or if they read the instruction booklet. NEVER has a carseat been easier to disassemble and reassemble, clean, reinstall, or adjust than this one! My 4 year old has been using it for over two years. He now weighs 34 lbs and will continue to use it until he outgrows it. I have zero issues adjusting for thicker winter clothes, growth spurts, etc. This seat has been through diaper overflows, chocolate milk spills, etc, and after washing, it still looks pristine! As with any equipment that you are entrusting to protect the life of your child, read the manual, keep the manual in a safe place, and make sure granny or hubby know how to use it too.

Nice car seat

I had to fit three car seats in the back of my car. This one was smaller in the base than a lot. I got a great price on it and I am loving it so far! The only problem I had was it sure was not easy to install (in my car at least).

My daughter used this car sear for 3 years and we loved it for her!! MUCH more comfortable and much more safe then her old car seat. I loved it so much because the pull tight system never jammed up and was easy for her to let herself in and out.

Easy installation and adjusting
April 13, 2015
I have had this car seat for 10 months and absolutely love the ease of installation we switch iy from vehicle to vehicle periodically and it takes less then 5 min for proper installation and securing child in seat. The latch system is so easy to use just press and go there is no fighting to loosen straps just to unhook the seat just press the red release button and go. This is one of the few seats on the market to be able to use the tether belt both rear and forward facing which made me feel that extra security. Repositioning or adjusting the height and recline is so simple and easy to do as well as the belly buckle. This is one of the few seats with comfort pads on the harness. I will never buy anything but britax seats and strollers ever again and this is coming from a die hard for another popular name brand for baby gear. Love it! It's actual enjoyable buckling in my LO! No fighting the seat or my child to secure her!

Great fit and recline
April 11, 2015
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.

I have not been using this long, but my granddaughter loves it and it was very easy to install. I studied reviews, and spoke to my daughter who has a Britex car seat already, and Britex seems to be the best. I received my order even sooner than expected, and I found no damage or missing pieces. Very please with the shopping experience.

Comfortable and Safe
March 29, 2015
I used a Britax Roundabout with my first, but it had expired by the time my second was ready to be forward facing, so after some research I decided to go with the Marathon this time, which has many great new features. I like how easy it is to adjust the height of the straps and the buckle position, without having to take things apart at the back. An improvement in the latch connection, is that each side has its own strap, rather than one belt that went from one side to the other, like my old seat. It makes it easier to tighten the seat, because you're not fighting from side to side and the seat is way more secure.The sides of the seat have more of a wing shape for the extra side impact protection, and I was worried he would be annoyed that he couldn't see out so well, but he doesn't seem to mind at all (he's a bigger boy though, so he can see fairly well). Even if this was a problem, I'm sure any baby would get used to the restricted view, and the added safety is more important. The steel frame makes the seat weighty, but not as much as I thought it might, and it's still manageable. The recline is great, and he sleeps comfortably, without his head slumping forward. The harness covers also give him more support, and I haven't had problems with the straps twisting. The Velcro to hold the straps aside is great. I did prefer the soft cloth on the older seat, but they all seem to be more like this these days, and this kiwi/lime color seems smoother than most. I got the cup holder (sold separately) and it hooks on easily and works as it should.Albee baby had a great price on this seat and they shipped it the next day. It arrived on time and in perfect condition.I am more than pleased with this seat, it's very nice looking, comfortable and most importantly, is safe.
Best Uses.

Mostly wonderful!
March 29, 2015
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
March 25, 2015
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
March 24, 2015
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.

Excellent Quality
March 23, 2015
The quality of Britax always outshines competitors, this seat is made exceptionally. Love the new features (the LATCH systems holding slots, impact on the base, reclining positions, extra padding built in, padding around the clips so it doesn't pinch, easily understood and visually appealing stickers on the side explaining weight/height limits and rear/forward facing requirements.) Shipping was timely, in the original box. The product is adorable with the giraffes, my personal favorite. Only one complaint, not really even a complaint, just a comment: the strap guards on the top keep twisting and because they are velcro can be sharp. Every time I put the baby in the seat they spin and I have to face them down or run the risk of scratching little ones face. LOVE it, not to mention it's $60 off. Thank you ALBEE BABY

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.

why we chose this one
March 7, 2015
SIMPLE to use! For us, we liked the old but current marathon chair. We like how the seat locks into the vehicle chair, using the traditional belts lock-in straps That was the reason we walked out of the store with this one. Anybody can walk up to it and use it without having to read the manual. It fit well in our vehicle (toyota Highlander), with plenty of room for the front seat to go back. It is expensive.
