Frontier 85 booster {Britax} + giveaway

I remember doing a huge car seat hunt when my daughter was ready to move out of her infant seat. I consulted with my car seat guru, Chele, along with several others and it was completely unanimous, we all chose Britax. Not only is Britax one of the safest seats on the market, but it’s also one of the easiest to use in my opinion. I’ve tested out several other seats and I just seem to be able to install Britax’s seats the easiest. Plus the connectors are solid, but also release without me having to strain myself. The Frontier 85 is a combination forward-facing, 5-point harness car seat from 25 up to 85 lbs. as well as a belt-positioning, high-back booster seat up to 120 lbs.

The Frontier 85 allows the longest use of the 5-point harness on the market and at 120 lbs, also offers one of the highest booster weight limits. Once your child hits the 2 yrs/25 lbs lower limit, the Frontier 85 could be the only car seat you ever buy again. This is good news for parents who originally thought they’d have to purchase 3 or 4.  What really stresses me out is when I see 4 year olds in a simple booster seat with the seat belt holding them in. Some parents are too eager to do away with the 5-point harness for the belt-positioning booster seats. The National Highway Traffic Safety Commission recommends using a full harness as long as possible.

This new Frontier 85 Booster includes the following updates:

  • 5-point harness weight limit increased from 80 to 85 lbs.
  • harness height increased from 18″ to 20″
  • 2 additional harness height position for a total of 10
  • fixed cup holders and armrests
  • new fabrics
  • redesigned belt paths to make installation easier.

I really love how easy this seat is to install, it was even easier than our old Britax Boulevard. You no longer need to re-thread the harness and the awesome dual cup holders is a favorite feature of my daughter’s. This seat is roomy enough for her, but still keeps her protected in case of a crash.

Safety Features

  • True Side Impact Protection – Britax’s patented design that distributes the force of the crash, and protects the head, neck and body by keeping the body aligned to reduce injury
  • EPS Foam Liner – absorbs and distributes the impact from a crash
  • Energy-absorbing base – helps to absorb the crash force
  • Versa-Tether – anchors the back of the car seat at two different points, minimizing the forward movement of the seat in a collision
  • HUGS (Harness Ultra Guard System) – prevents forward head movement in a crash
  • Simplified and secure installation with either the LATCH connectors or the color-coded vehicle belt guides

Comfort Features

  • Plush yet durable material and padding provide comfort and keep passenger cool
  • Easily adjust between 10 harness height positions with the no-re-threading harness
  • 3 seat buckle positions to ensure a snug fit
  • 2 built-in cup holders easily fit sippy cups, snack containers and 20-oz. water bottles
  • Built-in, fixed armrests
  • Soft shoulder and crotch pads

I love this booster and when my daughter is older, I can remove the 5-point harness and can strap her in with the seat belt. I’m glad she loves this seat as well because she’s going to be in it for a long time! Head over to Britax here to read more about their Frontier 85. If your child is beginning to grow out of their convertible car seat, the Frontier is a new and impressive option to ensure the safety of your child.
