Last month I switched my son from his Britax carrier to this seat. I love how it fits in the car and we have had to switch it a couple times from vehicle to vehicle and that's been pretty simple. I love how it reclines so baby still gets to take car naps. I also love that with Britax I feel like my little guy is in the safest thing.

I bought two of these coming up on two years ago (didn't use them right away) because of the safety ratings. I did not realize that a high safety rating doesn't necessarily mean high quality. About a years worth of use, all of the straps have frayed and needed replacement. The cover has also frayed but I've yet to replace it due to the high cost. I can only find replacements on Britax.com. By the time I replace all the parts it would probably be better to just buy a new car seat. I spent more on this seat thinking my next child could also use it but that is looking doubtful. If you have to have a britax (as I thought I did) then go with the roundabout (cheaper replacement parts).

Mostly wonderful!

By Careseatneeded

from MN, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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

By Shmadams06

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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

By Chicago mom

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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.

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

We just finished installing this car seat and I love it! It was very easy to install and I was able to do it by myself without help from my husband. My daughter is comfortable and fell asleep on the first car ride.

Great Product

By 1sttimemommy

from Florida, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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.

All good but not up to 65 lbs!

By Margaret

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

I have it for 3 years Comfy, easy to wash, But. The white "liner" that goes around is shedding. What make me upset that my son is 36 lbs and I can barley bucke him with his winter jacket.. I just don't see a 60 lbs kid in it. Impossible. I'm so disappointed

why we chose this one

By jsjagger

from Utah

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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.
