This seat is perfect for tall children who still need to be in a harness. My son is 3 and 43 inches tall. He has been on the last harness position in his other seat for a while, but on this Frontier, he has 5 more harness settings, so it will continue to grow with him for a long time. The material of the Congo (black and red) pattern is perfect for wiping up spills or messes easily and the fabric is sturdy enough to hold up in the wash time and time again. Installation is a breeze with the seatbelt "ClickTIght" system. Many parents don't know that LATCH system has a weight limit, and this is great forward thinking on Britax's part to design a seat that meets the needs of older children who require a seatbelt installation. The seat is heavy--but good thing I'm not carrying it around. The materials it's made from are thick and sturdy. It is obvious that this seat is high end just from looking at the harness and seat cover. Materials used are of great quality and made to last. The only star I deducted from this seat was in ease of use.. the button to loosen the harness is deep inside the opening and can be difficult to reach. Luckily that isn't something I have to adjust often. Overall, this is an excellent seat for kids over 2 who still need a harness but have graduated from a convertible seat. The cupholders are an excellent feature that most other brands don't offer as well. Highly recommended!
Fairly easy to install once you lift up the padding.
This only worked on one side of the car seat, as it sticks out too far on the car door side and won't allow the door to close. Not a problem, if you only want one cup holder, but it's an issue for me as I wanted two - one for a drink and one for a snack cup.

good product, but car seat should all come with cup holders
We've been using this cover for the past week and I really like it! It's a great light-weight cover for shielding our 3 month old from the sun, and the mesh screen will be great for keeping out bugs too. It doesn't come with any directions, which is a bit of a nuisance. So I looked at a picture online and it just took me a couple minutes to figure out how to attach it. We have a Britax carrier, so it's a perfect fit. I highly recommend this if you're looking for something lightweight!
Used this to check our britax roundabout 55 cs for our international flight from ny to Paris. It protected the seat and made it easy to pull around. No damage came to my carseat or to the cs bag. Feels of great quality but had a little bit of a hard time squeezing the cs into the bag. It seemed a little bit of an awkward fit but I did manage to get it in and it served it's purpose well.
I bought this cart to use on my trip from NY to Paris. Unfortunately, I had to return it and bought the britax cs travel bag instead because we decided to check the carseat instead of use it on the airplane... which I'm happy about because there would not have been much room for the big carseat on the small airplane seats. I did test it out before returning it and I think it would have been excellent if we had decided to use it more like a stroller in the airport to pull my daughter around.
