Excerpt: At just under $300, Britax’s Frontier 85 is among the priciest car seats in the bunch
Pros: Easy to install with a seatbelt, Easy to adjust harness height and tension in forward-facing mode, Easy to secure child in forward-facing mode (We used our 8-lb. GHRI test dummy), Clear instruction manual
Cons: Car seat cover is tough to remove and is hand wash only
Britax Frontier 85 Review: It’s All New, Is It For You?
24 February 2010
Conclusion: The major advantages far outweigh the few minor disadvantages I listed, in my opinion. Unless it is simply too big or too expensive for consideration, the Britax Frontier 85 is a superb choice if your “baby” is already a big girl or boy! Kids under 2 years old or under 25 pounds should really be kept rear-facing for safety.
