Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat {Rafflecopter Giveaway}

BRITAX has been a leader in mobile safety for more than 70 years, with a legacy of leadership in developing innovations that enhance the safety of child car seats and improve their ease of installation and use.GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED
I’m a Pediatric-Neonatal R.N..  While I love colorful cute strollers and car seats what I look for in these products goes way past their aesthetics.  My girls are 21 and 25.  My Little Guy will be 2 at the end of October and car seat regulations have changed drastically since I brought my precious little pink bundle of joy home 25 years ago.  Even back then car seats in New York were a mandated!  We were on a tight budget, but we still investigated and purchased the safest car seat on the market.

BRITAX has been a leader in mobile safety for more than 70 years, with a legacy of leadership in developing innovations that enhance the safety of child car seats and improve their ease of installation and use. It only makes sense that I would want to place my precious cargo into a Britax Car Seat!

Did you know that BRITAX is the best-selling child car seat in Europe and one of the brands most trusted by American parents and caregivers since entering the U.S. market in 1996?  Their products undergo the most rigorous testing in the industry at five BRITAX testing facilities worldwide. They also work closely with vehicle manufacturers to encourage design improvements that enhance the performance of child car seats. They are in constant communication with consumers and child safety advocates to make sure that their fabulous car seats are installed and used correctly!

I was Blessed to receive a Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat for review. This car seat can be used for infants 5-40 lbs in the rear facing position and toddlers and children 1 year & 20, up to 70 in the forward facing position.  Hubby and I took a long hard look at this car seat when it arrived and I am really impressed with the safety features built into the Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat.

Plush, Easy-Remove Cover with matching comfort pads and infant body pillow to provide extra comfort and easy cleaning without disassembling or uninstalling the child seat makes the Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat a super luxury Car Seat

SafeCell Technology features SafeCells, an engineered structure, designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the vehicle seat in front of the child restraint.

SafeCell™ Technology features SafeCells designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat.  The SafeCells that comprise the SafeCell Technology are located at the base of the seat and remind me a bit of a honeycomb.

 

Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash.

Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection of the car seat to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash.  The most important job of a car seat is to minimize injury to your child during a crash.  One way that your child may be injured during a crash is by hitting something in the vehicle, such as the back of the front seat. Incorporating Integrated Steel Bars, which reduce the forward flexing of the child seat during a crash, can minimize the risk of your child being violently propelled forward and hitting the back of the vehicle seat in front of the child restraint

Child seat with tether on impact. Safety belt, tether and harness work together to limit the child’s forward movement.Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether® features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child.  The diagram to the left depicts a child seat with tether on impact. Safety belt, tether and harness work together to limit the child’s forward movement.

Side Impact Protection comprised of deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head, neck and body.  When I place the baby in the Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat I feel like I’m placing him in a protective cocoon.  Not only do the sides of the car seat come up nice and high but they’re also deep and very cushy!  Side Impact Protection helps to contain your child’s head and body in the seat, keeping them from making contact with the vehicle door or window during a crash!

The Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat is very easy to buckle and utilizes the five-point harness system which is comprised of straps that extend over the baby’s hips, shoulders/collar bones, and between his legs. The five-point harness system is designed to make contact with and transfer crash forces over the strongest parts of the body – the hips and shoulders.  The job of a car seat is to minimize injury during a crash, and one way that a car seat accomplishes that is by minimizing movement of your child during a crash.  The Harness Ultra-Guard System (HUGS™) helps to minimize the forward movement of your child during a crash.  Click HERE to learn more.

Hubby had the Britax Marathon 70 Car Seat installed in his car in about 15 minutes.  We read then re-read the instructions carefully while we were placing the car seat in the car, that’s what took so long.  I could go on and on about the many other FEATURES of this car seat, there are so  many.  But I’ll just end my review by letting you know that the thick cushy car seat cover, which is available in seven colors and patterns is very easy to remove for cleaning!  Matching comfort pads and infant body pillows are included for extra comfort. The Britax 70 Car Seat is also certified for Air Travel.  Price ~ 289.99
