Excerpt: great car seat, easy to attach to my britax b-agile 4 although in firmly there is a slight wobble to it which im sure if just the pushchair design and not the car seat as I recently purchased the britax carry cot and this also wobbles slightly although both in very securely. easy to attach and remove. lightweight and bigger then expected which is good.
Excerpt: I think the royal baby got this model, didn't he?! That's not the reason I chose it though. It was one of the few that got very good marks in Which magazine for safety even when not using the ISOFix. We already had a Britax Agile pram, which it fits, and had been happy with a Britax Baby Safe Sleeper before that. (Baby had got too long for that though, so we had to upgrade!) So, generally, we're Britax fans.
Pros: Fits Britax Pram, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Very Safe
Summary: I can see how this protects baby but it is very well fitting on my 6 month old already - admittedly he is big but he gets quite warm in it and his legs are at the end, I don't see us being able to keep it for too long. It's a bit of a struggle getting it in the car when the handle is up as there is only a small gap between the seat (once the seat is level for the isofix) and the roof. But it's safe and he seems fine in it. Doesn't tilt back as far as I can find.
Summary: We bought it with a full travel system including isofix base and works great, easy to move and good quality product. This seat however seems to bit on the heavier site as slightly bigger than others (which will make it last little longer I think), make sure it will fit into your car with base, needs lots of room out at the back, we have mazda3 and won't fit behind the driver, as both of uas are rather tall, but nothing you can't manage.
Summary: I did a lot of research into car seats and chose this one as I felt it was the safest option for us. I chose the fossil brown colour because it was much cheaper than all others and I don't think my baby will care. It's a more chocolately brown than in the photo, though. The seat seems well made. The only down point I'd say is I think the material could get quite sweaty during warm summer weather.
Summary: We bought the seat because of the safety and quality of the materials etc. and so far it has been fantastic. Our newborn quite likes it and easily falls asleep on every journey. I had concern about his head falling forwards when asleep, but the included wedge for the base seems to have solved the problem. My only issue is that the seat and base are quite large, so make sure that you check it or size in your vehicle.
