Look; I’m not the sort of person who’s going to tell you that you must buy a Britax to safeguard your kid. There are plenty of cheaper carseats out there that will do the job. (I, myself, never owned a Britax.) That said, plenty of people are willing to shell out the extra money based upon the excellent crash ratings and user satisfaction, and who am I to argue if that’s what you want to spend your money on?
But if you’re going to go Britax, make sure you get a deal. Like, right now, Amazon is offering a free travel cart with any qualifying Britax seat purchase, and that’s a handy item to have if you’re toting that carseat hither and yon. It’s an $80 value, and currently absolutely free if you buy them both together. (Note that some of the seats are marked down, themselves, too, like the Boulevard 70 in Onyx.)
And this is me, not saying a word about the fact that the world’s most expensive carseat can also be fitted with the world’s most expensive hand truck. Mmmph.
