Excerpt: No matter what way you spin it, car seats are an expensive purchase. For our eldest son, when he reached 1 year, we bought a Cosco Summit which has been OK, but the fabric is very worn and the straps get entangled super-easily. When buying a seat for my youngest who just turned 1, I checked out Britax offerings given the great reviews on this site and experiences other friends had shared with me.
Summary: I am very happy with this car seat so far! My son has so much more room than in his infant car seat. The construction is great and the fabric is soft on his skin. Why doesn't every car seat have the super helpful little velcro tabs to hold the straps out of the way? It took awhile to get used to using them but now I use them without even thinking about it.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Adjust, Easy to install, Safe, Sturdy
