I'm a mother of 7 children, so I've been through quite a few of these car seats! If you do your research and care about reviews and "Best Of" lists - look no further! I've historically bought Britax car seats but this particular seat blew me away! It was super easy to install but VERY sturdy; I felt my baby was immediately secure and safe - invaluable!! The fabric of the seat is another HUGE plus. It's super soft (not stiff!) and - the best part - it's ALL washable! I've washed the seat cover several times and each time it comes out looking brand new - never worn or faded (it also doesn't take a manual to put it back on!). I would highly, highly recommend this seat for babies (my baby was 6 months) on up! Worth every penny!!

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).

Easy installation and adjusting

By Sheri

from North Dakota, United States

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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

By Anna

from Harrisburg, PA

Comments about Britax Marathon G4 Convertible Car Seat - Cowmooflage:

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.

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

from Austin, TX, United States

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.
