Pros & Cons
Lightweight and travel friendly, the BRITAX B-SAFE Infant Car Seat provides your child with comfort and safety. Featuring Side Impact Protection and an energy-absorbing foam liner, the B-SAFE car seat ensures your child is protected from all angles. For parental convenience, the seat also includes premium, push-button lower LATCH connectors, a built-in lock-off, and an ergonomically designed handle to make the seat easy to install, remove, and carry. Side Impact Protection distributes crash forces, shields from vehicle intrusion, and contains the head and body. For further safety, a tangle-free, five-point harness provides a secure fit and distributes crash forces across the strongest parts of the body. Additionally, an energy-absorbing foam liner inside the seat further absorbs and distributes crash forces. Removable shoulder and belly pads add comfort, and a large, multi-positional canopy protects your child from wind, rain, and UV rays.
This car seat is a sturdy, good quality seat. It is very easy to use. People have no problem in installing the base or buckling the child into the seat. This seat is also safe because it goes on to the base tightly and securely. The fabric is also good because it is easy to clean and it does not heat up in hot weather. This car seat is very useful, but it can be heavy and difficult to carry around. That is because it is intended to be used with the Britex B-Agile Stroller, and when it is used with the stroller, it is extremely convenient and easy to use.
Overall, this car seat is a good buy with or without the stroller. It is durable and safe. But if used without the stroller, it will be very difficult to carry around.
