Excerpt: I am very pleased with my Britax Chaperone. We used it for my son when he was under one years old and will use it again if we should have a third child. It worked very well with my Britax B-ready stroller. I love the red color and the stylish design. It is a heavy car seat but I didn't mind at all as I call it the mommy work out to take the baby in and out of the car. What really sold me on this car seat is the safety features.
Excerpt: I was hesitant in purchasing such an expensive infant seat for my son in 2011. However, it has proven to be a wonderful investment. It is durable and safe and very easy to use. It is a little heavier than some of the other seats I have looked at. The britax bar in the front is a very good design and definitely made me feel more at ease with having my son in the seat. We used this seat until he was about 20 lbs or so and then it just got too heavy to lug around.
Excerpt: Very pleased with Britax again. We are repeat customers having put the older children in Britax Marathons now needing an infant seat once more. The sunshade on the Britax is more generous than our old Graco and the belts are much easier to adjust. It is a little more difficult to remove from the base than I would like but this could be a result of the vehicles we have installed it in, a Ford Excursion which necessitates standing on the running boards, and a GMC 2500 4x4.
Not worth the money and not up to par with their other products.

Excerpt: We purchased this infant seat for our third child as we had Britax convertible seats for our older two and loved them. I have to say I was a bit dissapointed with it. Its very very heavy to carry and adjusting the fit of the harness straps with a child in it is difficult, the chest clip does not slide well and all and requires lots of tugging to get into the proper place. Also the straps seem to bow out around the neck area rather than lying flat.
Excerpt: We had owned a cheaper infant seat for our daughter but when she outgrew it we purchased a Britax for her. Since Britax are the ONLY carseats we will buy for ours kids! Baby #3 came along and we purchased the Britax Chaperone for him and its an amazing seat! Yes, its heavy when you add my 22lb 6mo old in it however I know he is VERY safe in the seat.
Excerpt: We decided to purchase the Britax Chaperone Infat Car Seat after thoroughly researching countless brands and their safety reviews. The Britax Chaperone lives up to its reputation of a solid infant seat- and it's price tag ($289 in the State of Hawaii). We really like how the base locks into our back seat with two anchors (one on each side)- and we have the option of locking our seat belt around the base for added safety.
Excerpt: I love the Britax Infant car seat. They are the safest option out there; sturdy, attractive and convenient!It's wonderful to be able to use the stay-in-the-car base to snap the car seat in and out without disturbing the baby. My parents bought a base so that we could easily transfer the car seat between vehicles without needing to buy a second seat!The biggest problem with this car seat is the same problem every car seat has: it's heavy!
