Britax is a well know brand for making top of the line car seats with your child’s safety in mind. Britax car seats are easy to install, a breeze to use, and they offer great protection for your precious cargo. They have car seats that will keep your child safe from birth all the way up until a booster is no longer needed. If you are questioning what type of seat would be best for your little one, check out one of our old posts on Car Seat Safety.

britaxpioneerWe had the chance to review the hot of the press, newly released, Britax Pioneer 70 Combination to Harness Booster Seat! This just became available in July 2013. I picked the Garden Gate print, which has been a VERY popular print according to Britax.
britaxprintgardengateThe Pioneer 70 is a Combination Harness 2 Booster seat, which I’m sure you’re wondering what exactly does that mean. It means that it is a forward facing only seat with a harness that converts to a belt positioning booster. The minimum requirements for the Pioneer 70 are 2 years, 25lbs, and 30 inches to be able to use this seat forward facing while being harnessed (Make sure your child is at least 2 before forward facing, as now recommended by the AAP). If you can keep your child extended rear facing in their current seat, longer than age 2, by all means, please do so. If you are looking for a seat that will allow you to extended rear face, please check out my review of the Britax Pavilion 70-G3.

I am going to be reviewing/using the Pioneer 70 for my just turned 5 year old. She is 39lbs and 44.5 inches tall. I wanted a seat for her to keep her harnessed, and the Pioneer 70 is perfect with it’s higher seat limits (than other seats) for height and weight. I plan on keeping her harnessed until age 6. This seat will allow you to harness your child to 70lbs and 54 inches tall. Always make sure the straps are at or above your child’s shoulders. If they are below the shoulders, you need to move to the next harness height position. When using a harness on any car seat, two of the MOST important things are:
1- make sure the chest clip is on the chest, EVEN with the armpits, not on the belly
2- the straps should be snug as a hug, there should be NO slack at all

In order for a car seat to do it’s job and protect your child in the event of an accident, you must use the car seat correctly.

britaxdelilahThe seat cover on the Pioneer 70 is easy to wipe down, it’s also easy to remove to be able to clean as well, without uninstalling the car seat.

  After your child has outgrown the harness, you can then use this seat as a seat belt positioning booster, as long as your child is a minimum of 40lbs and 45 inches, all the way up until they reach 59 inches tall and 110lbs!

I really love the ease of use of Britax car seats, I LOVE that you do not have to re-thread the harness which is great if you have more than one child that will be using the seat, or just when your child grows, you won’t have to uninstall the seat to adjust the harness. To use the Quick adjust harness, just squeeze the handle at the top of the seat that is labeled “Pioneer 70” and pull up gently. This will move the harness height up for you, it’s that simple. Once you want to use this seat as a booster you will need to adjust the height all the way up, and you will need to store away the harness and front buckle. The manual that comes with will explain how to do so, and it’s very simple.

britaxsideThe Britax Pioneer 70 features a base with Safe Cell technology as you can see from the picture. This helps reduce the amount of pressure and force on the child in the event of an accident and lowers the center of gravity to the bottom of the car seat which will minimize injury to your child. Britax started using this Safe Cell technology on it’s car seats in 2010. Another great feature of this Britax car seat is the Integrated Steel Bars which will reduce forward flexing of the car seat in the event of a crash. True Side Impact Protection is another Britax feature, that protects your child in an accident. This means that the seat has deep side walls with energy absorbing foam, the deep side walls provide protection from intruding objects. It also keeps your child’s body inside the seat which will keep it from making contact with vehicle doors or windows and it minimizes side to side head movement. These reasons are why Britax seats are the way to go.

The Pioneer 70 also has a recline mode, you press the front adjust recline button on the front of the seat, and the seat reclines ever so slightly. This can ONLY be used while the seat is in harness mode. If you switch over to booster mode, remember to return the seat to the original straight up and down position.

In addition, you can see from the picture that there are color codes, red for the booster, and green (the green is covered up from the LATCH strap) for harness mode. This makes for easy installation and no guessing on what goes where.

britaxpioneercollageYou can also see that this seat has Premium LATCH connectors as well. This was important for me in a seat for my daughter as I drive a 2013 Ford Explorer with inflatable seat belts. Unfortunately, this seat can not be installed with inflatable seat belts, so I have to have LATCH connectors. UPDATE: Britax issued a release on 9/24/2013 that this seat is safe to use with my inflatable seatbelts!!! Yes! This is great because once your child reaches 40lbs, you MUST install with a seatbelt versus LATCH as the weight limit of LATCH is 40lbs. If you do not use the LATCH and use a seat belt instead, make sure you store away the LATCH connectors, underneath the seat pad. You can find out how from the manual included with the seat. Make sure you use the best way to install for you, which means the seat will not move more than 1 inch from side to side. Also remember to use the versa tether to tether the car seat to an anchoring point. This is very important. Having the car seat installed correctly is the only way to insure it will protect your child in the event of a crash. If you’re having trouble find an anchoring point, consult your car manual.

I love the integrated cup holders and arm rests too. This makes for a comfortable ride and allows my daughter to have her water cup right there with her.

  1. CHAPERONE
    car seat

  2. Ho early I’d love to have any of their cknvertBles or booster seats since I now have 2 that are due for new seats!

  3. Fall is about to hit so I could really use a Rain Cover,

  4. I would love the double stroller! I have a 17 month old and I am expecting a baby in May. It would be nice to have a new stroller to carry both babies 🙂

  5. It has a base that reduces the amount of pressure on baby in the event of an accident!

  6. I learned that it is very easy to clean which is a must for kiddie!

  7. Tiffany Holtzinger says:

    I’d love to also have the Boulevard 70-G3 for my son because of the SafeCell Technology. Safety is #1!

  8. Tiffany Holtzinger says:

    I’ve learned that after they grow out of the harness, you can still use it as a booster with the regular seat belt!

  9. I actually would love the Pioneer 70. My just about 5 year old is about to outgrow her Marathon and this is exactly what we need!

  10. Brooke Wells says:

    I want the stroller board for my B-Ready!

  11. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I liked that you pointed out how to properly use the straps on a car seat. Honestly some people don’t really know and its good to see someone point it out. It is better to do it right.

  12. Would love to win the B-Safe for my son’s daughter who will be born in December

  13. I’m expecting number 2, and would love to win a double stroller! Britax car seats are the only ones we use! Love the safety records!!

  14. I love the look of this seat, and how it accommodates taller kiddos, as mine is little, but very tall for his age!

  15. I learned this seat as True Side Impact Protection. This seems like a very safe seat!

  16. I loved Britax car seats. They are so expensive.

  17. the safty system is the most advanced.

  18. I love the B-Agile stroller! I love the look of it (especially peacock color) and love the features of it. Five point harness, one hand quick fold, large canopy and lightweight!

  19. Sherry Compton says:

    I like the BOB B-SAFE Infant Car Seat and travel systems. I like how convenient and useful travel systems are, and these look safe and lightweight, too.

  20. I learned that it is easy to install and they match up to your kids weight and height

  21. I learned that you don’t have to take out the straps to adjust the harness. There is a handle on top you click and the harness can slide up or down. This had to be invented by a frustrated mom like me!

  22. Would LOVE a Frontier 90 – that should last me until I don’t need one anymore 🙂

  23. My favorite thing I learned – no re-threading of the harness, LOVE IT!

  24. I would love this exact booster as it would fit the needs of my 2yo who we are currently on the hunt for a seat. I learned that this seat has a minimum age of 2yrs, most are one so this was new to me. I also learned that its easily wipeable, which is always a plus with a potty training child. 🙂

  25. I didnt know that they come in 7 different prints. 😀

  26. That you don’t have to remove it to clean it or adjust it makes life a bit easier

  27. I like the Gardengate and I like that it looks comfortable and that it will support child(ren) up to the age that you need then secured into the seat. I don’t really like just the boosters, I like the ones with the secure harness and I like the cup holder most of all, thanks!

  28. Elise Zarate says:

    I love that the harness doesn’t need to be re-threaded. This car seat seems so easy to use!

  29. wish i could afford to buy this

  30. Tanya Gamez says:

    Really want the car seat that you have pictured above. It has so many cool features.

  31. I would love to try the Pioneer 70! I just read the specs on it and it looks like it would keep my little one so safe!

  32. Emily K. Reed says:

    Would love to win one of these for my little guy!

  33. Jill Franseen says:

    love the britax marathon 70! super easy to use and comfortable for my daughter.

  34. Jill Franseen says:

    I love the features of the base for accidents!

  35. janell wagner says:

    b agile double stroller for my daughter

  36. Bethany Saldana says:

    I love that the carseat is forward facing and that the shoulder straps won’t have to be re-threaded! That’s a pain in the arse to do!

  37. I learned that this car seat fit up to 59 inches and 110 lbs.

  38. Jeanie Payne says:

    I’d love a new high weight harness car seat since ours are getting very worn looking.

  39. nancy scaggs says:

    I like the chaperone infant seat.

  40. I’d also love to have the BRitax Frontier 90. Why? Because it can accomodate harnessing a child even longer than the Pioneer, so it’s greater for bigger kids =)

  41. I learned that the Britax Pioneer can go from harnessed seat to a boostered seat!

  42. jennifer aikens says:

    wow how lucky are you to get one of these for free!? So jealous, I love all the safety features of this carseat. The deepness of the seat is comforting and would make me feel much more at ease knowing my child has way more protection in case of an accident.

  43. Gina Hiskes says:

    I’m so jealous you got to review this! Your 5 year old is the size of my 3 year old, and I’ve been wanting a Britax for her for the longest time. My poor husband has been rethreading the straps on her Graco, a huge plus of this is that you don’t have to undo everything to adjust the straps. That’s awesome!

  44. I would love to own the B-Agile double stroller. I don’t own one and i really need one, with a second baby now.

  45. I learned that is has safe cell technology which helps reduce the amount of pressure and force on your child in the event of a crash.

  46. This is so user-friendly, and it makes it so easy to install via Latch OR seat belts!

  47. I learned that it is made with Safe Cell technology which reduces the amount of pressure and force in the case of a crash.

  48. I love the B-Agile Stroller.

  49. Julie Ghrist says:

    B-AGILE Double

  50. Amy Phillips says:

    Would love the Pioneer 70 for my 5 year old. I think Britax are the safest seats!

  51. the b-agile stroller! It looks amazing! I want it for my little girl

  52. I learned about the seat’s convenience features AND safety features, which are both numerous. I like the sound of the safe cell technology and its side impact testing, because my daughter is a little thing, and I’ll want to be extra sure her first booster is a safe one if I’m going to be graduating her from her convertible seat.

  53. Nicole Bear says:

    I learned that this seat converts from a harnessed car seat to a belt positioning booster.

  54. I learned about all sorts of great stuff, like weights of your child according to your car seat.

  55. I would love to have one of their convertible car seats. I don’t really care which one.

  56. Safe cell technology!

  57. I’d also love to have the Britax B-Agile stroller. It looks super lightweight, easy to close, and comfy!

  58. Jessica Strudthoff says:

    I learned that you should move to a new harness height when the straps no longer start above the shoulders (don’t worry people, my little one is still on the way so I have not been doing it wrong).

  59. Jessica Strudthoff says:

    I would love to have the Britax B-Agile stroller because I have heard it handles well in all types of situations. It seems to do just as well in grass as it does in stores, something that would be awesome to have in a stroller.

  60. Cassandra Huber says:

    I learned that it is very easy to install and is one of the safest car seat brands out there.

  61. I learned that some cars have inflatable seatbelts {who knew?} & that is something that this carseat can’t be installed with. So did the car manufacturer make the LATCH system in the car stronger to accommodate the heavier seats that can hold kids longer?
    Nice review – thank you!

  62. Cynthia Brooks says:

    I learned that it has safe cell technology which directs more force to the bottom of the car seat and it also has steel bars to help with the forward flex of the carseat in an accident. Not to also mention it has true side impact protection that you can see with a first barrier and an inner barrier to cradle your child’s head in a crash. Awesome carseat.

  63. tiffany dover says:

    I learned that it’s a forward facing harness and converts into a booster. That’s exactly what we need!

  64. I would like to have the B-Agile stroller to give as a gift to a dear friend of mine who is finally awaiting her bundle of joy.

  65. The b-Agile Double stroller is on my wish list. I need one for a 2 yr old and 2 week old.

  66. I learned that this carseat will grow with your child and convert into a booster, when needed.

  67. Jessica Lodge says:

    I would love the B- Agile double stroller. I am in great need of one!

  68. I like the Pioneer 70 or the Frontier 90

  69. I learned that the Pioneer 70 goes all the way up to 110 pounds

  70. I’d love to have a Seat Saver Waterproof Liner for my Britax carseat. My son is potty training and this would come in handy and ease my mind on car trips.

  71. I like that you can adjust the straps without taking everything apart. This make it so much easier to keep the straps at the right height.

  72. I adore all britax seats. After a horrific car crash, the fact they have steel frames saved my son’s life. I am so grateful for a company that takes such pride in protecting our children.

  73. Brooke Wells says:

    Stoller Board 🙂

  74. I’d love to have the Britax Pinnacle. I love the extra side impact protection and the patterns.

  75. There is so much to love about this carseat! I love that you don’t have to rethread the harness to adjust – that is such a pain! And I LOVE that you can keep your child harnessed safely until 70 lbs!!!

  76. Tanya Gamez says:

    I am really excited about this giveaway. I am learning so much about car seats and everything to do with babies.

  77. I love the B-Nimble Stroller. Looks like a good, compact size!

  78. Renee Smith says:

    I love the phrase “snug as a hug.” What a great way to remember an important safety measure!

  79. Renee Smith says:

    I would like to have one of the seat saver waterproof liners. What a great time saver!

  80. I love any of their convertible car seats. But if i had to choose one, ADVOCATE 70-G3 would be it.

  81. I would love any of their car seats or strollers. The B agile is great!

  82. chaperone car seat

  83. I love safe shell technology!! This stuff is amazing.

  84. That print is so cute! I love the click tight system, I maybe able to actually install this seat by myself!

  85. Either this one or the Frontier 90

  86. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I like the B-Agile Double Stroller.

  87. laurie nykaza says:

    This car seat is amazing it looks really nice and going from a car seat to a booster is great save you $$$ not having to go out and buy a second one.

  88. Kayla Carter says:

    I would actually love to win this exact seat! We are saving money for a “big girl” car seat because they are just so darn expensive! I’d love this one because of the weight range! Love, love, love.

  89. We own a B-Ready, and I’d love to have a B-READY Full Rain Cover from Britax! 🙂

  90. Ronnie Owens says:

    The double stroller.

  106. The base has safecell technology in which reduces the amount of force and pressure on your child while centering gravity to minimize injury to your child.

  107. Rachel E. R. says:

  119. We could really use a new stroller. I like the B-Agile and the B-Nimble models.

  120. Brandy Crowe says:

This is a really nice seat and now I have to rethink what seat I want to get him. I thought I had it narrowed down but now Idk maybe we will get super lucky to win one and I won’t have to pick and choice.

  121. Brandy Crowe says:

  147. Krisha Collins says:

    I love that it’s easily wipe able.

  148. I learned that some of the seat belts cannot be used with this car seat – I also drive an explorer but it is an older model. We will be looking at a new vehicle in the next 18 months so I will keep that in mind when looking at vehicles and seat belts.

    I learned that this seat can be used for 5 years and beyond, as well as how easy it is to adjust! This seat would change our lives, I literally have to struggle with our carseat daily, and some days make the choice to just stay home rather than deal with trying to adjust and fight the seat over and over.

  169. I’d love to have the Frontier 90 because of Click Tight and the easy installation.

  170. Thank you for the opportunity to win this new car seat to the market. However, As a child passenger safety technician it frustrates me when bloggers don’t always get their installation and information accurate and therefore spreads mis-information to end users.

    In your review you stated how you installed this seat with LATCH for your 39 pound child. This seat has a 40 pound LATCH limit as per the instruction manual and the sticker that is shown on the side of the seat (funny enough even in one of the pictures you posted). So with 1 pound to go to the LATCH limit I’d probably not have used this type of install. A child’s weight can fluctuate several pounds and even more so with different weight clothing. With a child “that close”… it probably have been better “use” to show readers and teach them about LATCH limits and why it is so important to read the stickers and the manual on your car seat.
    Here’s the quote from the Britax Pioneer manual
    “Do not use the lower anchors of the child restraint anchorage
    system (LATCH system) to attach this child restraint when
    restraining a child weighing more than 40 lbs (18.1 kg) with the
    internal harnesses of the child restraint.”

    Might want to think about uninstalling this seat and reinstalling it with a seatbelt.
    Additionally it appears that you also have mis-information about Britax’s stance on the Ford inflatable seat belt use. It IS allowed EXCEPT on the Frontier 90 and Pinnacle 90.
    “Can I use an inflatable seat belt to install my BRITAX car seat?

    Yes. BRITAX has revised its recommendations and based upon an analysis of vehicle seat belt system testing results, the current Ford Motor Company (Ford and Lincoln vehicles) Inflatable seat belt system is approved for use with MOST BRITAX car seats made to date with the exception of the FRONTIER 90 and PINNACLE 90. BRITAX will continue to evaluate information provided by automobile inflatable seat belt manufacturers and may revise these recommendations as new data becomes available.”

    With all that said, please perhaps go back and edit or update some of your information as to be more informative to your readers and their children’s safety. As CPSTs we try to get as much factual information into the market as possible – we live in a monkey see, monkey do society and therefore we need to always be aware of the photos and information we post with regards to safety.

    Thanks

    the use of safe cells and how it can help in a crash,

  172. Sparkle Mellott says:

    I would love to have the Advocate 70-G3; it would make life 10 times easier when it came to taking my little man to his grandparents house. I wouldn’t have to waste so much time switch vehicles with the car seat.

  173. I love the strollers! I would especially love to get the B-Agile or the B-Nimble.

  174. Tanya Gamez says:

    I would like the BAgile or BNimble. They are awesome!

  175. I love the Safe-Cell technology! That was the most interesting aspect for me about this seat!

  176. I’d also like to have their B-agile stroller. I’ve had my eye on that for a while.

  177. I’d love to have the child bike seat. I know it’d be very safe because it’s from Britax and it’d allow me to get in my bike exercise while entertaining my kid =)

  178. I’d like a seat saver to protect our car’s seat.

  179. I also like the PINNACLE 90

  180. I could use this seat for my 4 year old he is about to outgrow his convertible seat.

  181. High weight limit to keep my little on in his harness longer, I would feel better and saffer with him in this seat.

  182. Brooke Wells says:

    I would love the parent console for my B-Ready!

  183. Would love to have the B-Nimble stroller in red since we need a lighterweight stroller besides our jogger!

  184. I’d also like the Britax rain cover or bug cover for the infant seat!!! How convenient. My daughter was born in the winter time, and I was always draping a blanket over her seat to keep cold rain, wind, etc out. This would be much easier!

  185. sheri anderson says:

    I would love the double stroller for my daughter as she has a one year old son and another son due in December! This would be a blessing for her! Thanks!

  186. Would also love the Frontier 90 booster seat because I have heard great things about it and I my younger son will soon be needing a booster.

  187. Kayla gross says:

    The safety system is by far the best on the market. Would love to have one for my little one. I would know he is tucked in safe an sound in my car at all times.

  188. Rebecca Misel-Newpher says:

    We love the rain cover.

  189. I also like the BOB B-SAFE car seat. It looks safe and compact.

  190. I learned that it’s a seat AND a booster.

  191. I would like the Storage Pouch. It would make it alot easier so my daughter wouldnt always be asking me to get her things!

  192. Michelle Lee says:

    I’d love to have the Britax B-Ready for my two kids under two. It looks so versatile!

  193. I’d also love to have the Britax B-Nimble. It is portable and lightweight and would be super easy to take around town!

  194. Emilie Metzinger says:

    I like their B-agile stroller and double stroller.

  195. sheri anderson says:

    Love that it’s a combination harness/booster seat, very nice! Thanks!

  196. sheri anderson says:

    Would love any of the Britax strollers as I’m grandmother to two grandson’s and don’t have one, thanks!

  197. The B nimble looks like a great stroller for having in the car!

  198. Jennie Sherman says:

    I learned that it’s a forward facing only booster with 5 point harness!

  199. Jessica Lodge says:

    I need the B Agile double stroller- like yesterday!!

  200. I definitely need a vehicle seat protector because I have leather seats! Theirs looks nice

  201. Tanya Gamez says:

    I would love to have the Chaperone

  202. The britax baby carrier looks sturdy, although I am not for front facing baby wearing..

  203. Any seat that has a latch connector system is a winner in my book. But these one button ones, SO much better!

  204. sheri anderson says:

    Would love a double stroller for my two grandsons, thanks!

  205. I’d also love to have the storage pouch and cup holder from Britax. My little one always loves to bring drinks and toys into the car with us, and they end up lost in the abyss of the backseat forever. She’d love places to store them!!

  206. i would love the frontier 90 my child is tall and skinny by law she can set in booster but she is under 40 pds but she out stands the 42in in height this seat would be great

  207. i like the b-ready stroller because it’s cute

  208. Tanya Gamez says:

    I love all of their products (especially the car seats), and have learned so much about child safety.

  209. I’m a huge fan of the Frontier 90! That click tight technology is amazing!

  210. Maureen Modic says:

    That you dont have to re threadthe harness! And you can use this until they reach 110lbs!!!

  211. LaToya Townsend says:

    I love that the seat transitions from a carseat to a booster seat.

  212. The seat cover is removable for cleaning.

  213. I learned that the pioneer 70 is a forward facing only seat.

  214. I’d like to also have the B-agile double stroller. Although I do not have twins (or kids close in age), I often babysit a friend’s baby, and it’d be super handy to have the double stroller!!

  215. Jessica Lodge says:

    I would love any of the strollers especially the b agile double stroller.

  216. I would love this carseat

  217. I would love a double stroller for my two littles!

  218. the organic baby carrier because its a gender neutral color for the wearer

  219. Tanya Gamez says:

    I could really use a stroller and would love the B Nimble or B Agile.

  220. I really want to try the Britax B Ready

  221. Alice L Genaway says:

    I would love either of their booster seats that go up to 90 lbs. I have one already, but the ex still has him riding in a small backless booster, which scares me. He is still small and although he just barely is over 40 pounds, he is not well supported or as safe as he would be in a britax. His father is a tractor trailer driver, and he refuses to understand the need for a good, safe seat while he is traveling with our son.

  222. Alice L Genaway says:

    I learned it has a recline feature, no rethread harness and is easy to clean. Harness from 25 to 70 pounds and booster from 40 to 110 pounds.

  223. I’d also love the Britax roundabout 55. It looks compact enough to fit into Gma’s car and very comfy!

  224. I want it all… Lol, just kidding! Would love to give the boulevard-70-g3 a try…

  225. I would love the Frontier 90!

  226. I like the B-agile stroller. It is very nice!

  227. It is a combination harness carseat. love this seat!

  228. SARA VARNELL says:

    Love this carseat.. The harness is an added feature to ease my mind! 🙂

  229. The carseat travel cart is a good idea!

  230. Laura Walton says:

    I’d love to have the pioneer for my three year old!

  231. Denise Osborn says:

    I love the B-nimble stroller. I love the look, red color and the way it folds up.

  232. Lucia Ruvalcaba says:

    I would love to win that car seat

  233. Tonya Sloan says:

    I would love one of the strollers to walk with my grandson!

  234. I learned that you can remove the cover to wash without uninstalling the seat. awesome

  235. I would like to try their baby carrier. I love that it comes with a seat extender to make it more like an ergo.

  236. I actually want the Pioneer 70 most of all. My boys are getting to the age where they are ready for boosters but I want them harnessed in longer.

  237. I learned about the safe cell base. Very cool.

  238. Brooke Wells says:

    The newest B-Ready… because I love mine, but the new ones have an additional seat location (4 options instead of 3).

  239. The Britax B infant car seat carrier and bas.

  240. I learned that you can use this seat until your child reaches 100 lb or 59″ which is great when you have a taller and larger child

  241. I love the B-Safe Carseat for infants!

  242. Sharmila M. says:

    I learned about the Safe Cell technology.

  243. Nadia Mae Horner says:

    I would love to have the Infant Car Seat Sun & Bug Cover, because I enjoy taking my little girl on walks and hate the flies and mosquitoes getting on her.

  244. Nadia Mae Horner says:

    Great Review on the Britax Pioneer 70 safety seat. I’m in shock that the AAP recommends toddlers to stay in a rear facing seat till they are 2 or 25lbs. I understand that it could be safer, however i think the baby would be incredibly uncomfortable.

  245. I love the frontier 90 and 70

  246. Although no one wants to think about being in an accident with their LO, it is nice to see that Britax has with its safety cells. steel bars, and side impact support. They really are top notch.

  247. It would be nice to have the infant Bsafe seat!

  248. i love the safe cell technology!

  249. I’d love any of the strollers

  250. I like the color-coding to make adjusting easier

  251. I’d love to have the Britax BOB B-safe! I love that they match the BOB strollers perfectly – they’re my favorite strollers.

  252. I would love to own the B-Ready stroller. Ilove the fact it can grow with your family.

  253. I would really love to have this seat or the 90!

  254. Renee Smith says:

    The organic baby carrier is nice.

  255. Lilia Kharabora says:

    I would love to have their Britax B Ready stroller. Why? Because its so functional and love that It becomes a double stroller with just adding a seat.

  256. I also like the bob b-safe and b-agile stroller.

  257. Jessica Lodge says:

    I like the B-Agile strollers. I especially like the size of the shade.

  258. Renee Walters says:

    I learned it is a seat plus a booster!

  259. I like the safety features.

  260. Bernadette N says:

    I’d love to try the Britax B-Agile Double Stroller. Right now, I don’t own one and could use one for my two youngest kids.

  261. sheri anderson says:

    Would love to have the double stroller as my daughter will need this soon! Thanks!

  262. I’d also like to have the BRitax baby carrier organic. I prefer organic fabrics, especially for baby, and this carrier looks great.

  263. I would also like the BOULEVARD 70-G3

  264. lindsey doepker says:

    I didnt no adout the quick-release handle i do like that thank you for good review

  265. I love the B-Agile stroller!

  266. I like that there are color codes for easy installation

  267. I love the higher limits for weight and height! I plan on having my kids harnessed for as long as possible too, so this is really important to me.

  268. I would love to own the B-Ready stroller.

  269. It would nice to have 2 bases for the chaperone seat!

  270. I would love to have the B-ready

  271. Lilia Kharabora says:

    The Britax B-Agile Stroller 🙂

  272. Gina Hiskes says:

    I would LOVE a Chaperone infant carrier in the cowmooflage! That’s adorable.

  273. I feel like I learned everything about this seat which makes me want one even more!! Love the higher weight and height limits for child to be harnessed longer. also the no rethread harness.

  274. Michael Lambert says:

    I learned that you do not have to re-thread the harness which will make it easier.

  275. I love the B-Nimble and B-Agile strollers because they seem more compact than other strollers that I have seen.

  276. I LOVE that this can be used to extended rear face and all the prints are adorable!!!! Hoping I win!!! I’d LOVE to keep my 3 year old RFing as long as I can.

  277. Like

  280. I like the backseat mirror!

  281. Lauren Spears says:

    I’d love to have one!!

  282. Richard Hicks says:

    This is one very nice car seat and has features that I like. Comfy for the child too

  283. I’ve never tried anything Britax but they seem to make great gear. The B-Agile Double would be fun to try!

  284. Christina Strapp says:

    I learned it can be an harnessed booster and then can be converted to a booster.

  285. Jessica Lodge says:

    My 2 year old son threw up no less than 6 times in the car this summer. I think we could use the Britax seat protector.

  286. I learned that the Britax 70 has the option to recline the seat.

  287. I’d love to have any Britax car seat! Especially love the Chaperone!

  288. Allyson H. says:

    Thank you so much for the review. We are looking into changing car seats and this is helpful in our search.

  289. We have the chaperone car seat and would love to continue with the Britax car seats for our son.

  290. I’d love a Britax Pioneer 70! I have two toddlers that are very tall and heavy for their age and we need seats that they can use for several years!

  291. Britax b safe, chaparone and b ready 🙂 just a short list of wants

  292. advocate 70…perfect for my talllll daughter to be rear facing for quite a while!

  293. I learned that there are color codes to make it simpler to install

  294. I’d love the seat protector and waterproof liner- we’re potty training and would like to reinforce no-diapers even in the car!

  295. I would love the seat that will last forever.

  296. Jeanie Payne says:

    I’d love to have the Frontier 90.

  297. I would love to have the Pioneer 70.

    I would love to have the B-Agile Stroller or the Baby Carrier. Both seem like excellent ways to keep up with our 14 year old while still keeping our little one cozy.

  299. Linnea Wilhelm says:

    I would love to win this seat. I have a tall 4 year old and want to keep him harnessed for a few more years. And I know this seat could accomplish that.
