Summary: I love the Britax brand and the quality and safety that it stands for. This seat is very large (it is basically the size of a mini-van bucket seat), but it is comfy and has an easy-to-clean cover. Every time it comes out of the washer, it looks brand new (marker stains have even come out!). My daughter loves it. The main downside is the size; it will not necessarily fit well in all vehicles.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Clean, Safe, Sturdy, Stylish
Summary: We have this seat for our 5 year old that he has been using for the past 2 1/2 years and he loves it. He has learned how to buckle and unbuckle himself like a big boy. We are going to purchase a second seat for his younger brother who is almost too large for his Roundabout. Those smaller boosters look too unsafe and not as secure. As a parent, my number one concern is the safety of my children. Britax is the best.
Summary: those who are complaining about how big, bulky, hard to install, etc, are missing the point. You shouldn't be moving seats from car to car anyway. This seat is about providing your child with the safest way possible to ride in a vehicle. I bought one for each of our vehicles so I wouldn't have to move it from car to car. Was it expensive? Yes. But you can't put a price on your child's life and well being. Now, I'll step off the soap box. This seat is AWESOME.
Summary: My son is 2 (36 in, 33 lbs) and we are expecting our daughter soon. She will need his car seat soon so we upgraded to a regent. I must say when I pulled it out of the box I was surprised by it's size. It is HUGE! It fits where his old roundabout fit, but we had to remove the headrest. It is a monster to strap in and we will probably never remove it. He has lots more room and sleeps much more comfortably. I highly recommend it, but you need a big car.
Super cozy and safe but large and may be a 2007 seat

Summary: First I must warn buyers that BC is shipping seats made in June 2007. With a 6 year expiration like most seats, you will only get 5 yrs use out of it! Not cool if you have long-term plans for it! I decided to give DD's Britax Boulevard to 6mo DS and get this seat. While it's it IS giant, it is clearly the coziest (and one of the safest) on the market. We had no trouble fitting both seats next to each other (Rear Pass/Center) in our Tahoe.
Summary: Recently upgraded my 3yr old to this carseat and he just loves it. He says, its his"big boy" seat. When he falls asleep he looks so relaxed and his head doesn't flop down. The carseat is quite bulky, wide and heavy. Fits nicely in our camry. Hassle to move from one car to another. Also have the Britax marathon, which is a great carseat! My little one is so comfortable in it. They both love their Britax carseats! They are worth every penny!

Summary: I was surprised with this seat. I have the Roundabout, Marathon and now the Regent. I do not like this car seat at all. I wish I would have saved the box! I put it the back seat of my suburban and it gives NO LEG ROOM for my tiny 36 pound 5 year old. Not only that it has a metal bar that is cumbersome and a real pain to install. I wish I would have bought another marathon and then purachsed a Britax Booster when she outgrew it.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter about a month ago. She is 2 and big for her age and she actually looks small in this seat. The seat itself is massive and it will last her for a long time to come. I love it and so does she. It looks super comfortable! My husband and I joke that we would like to have a seat like that ourselves. Highly recommended.
