Britax Frontier 90 Review & A Giveaway

I’ve been installing car seats and latching and unlatching kids into their seats for the last 17 years. Holy smokes! We’re not quite at the end of it. California State Law requires “children to ride in the back seat in a properly secured child passenger safety restraint until they are at least 8 years old or until they are at least 4 feet 9 inches in height.” This means that our two youngest children are still in safety restraints.

Since I’m a stickler for safety, they both still use 5-point harness seats. It’s safer and not that much harder for them to latch than a regular shoulder strap.

Recently, Britax contacted me to see if we’d like to review one of their seats. In all my years of kids and car seats, I’ve never had a Britax. But, wow! This thing is pretty awesome.

The Britax Frontier 90

Britax Frontier 90 Review & A Giveaway

When the Britax Frontier first arrived I was worried that it wouldn’t fit with another child safety seat next to it. The girls like to sit next to each other and I knew there’d be some grumbling if it didn’t work out. It’s a large safety restraint, super duper heavy and sturdy. But, it worked out great.

Good thing, too. It had been some time since we’d done a car seat switch. One of the seats was “expired” in 2007. Oops. It must have been one of the first boosters we ever bought. This new seat is good for 9 years and our other seat is good until December 2015, so I think we’re set now. The seat is good as a 5-point harness until 90 pounds. I think my girls will be teenagers before they hit that point!

I was also a little apprehensive about installing this seat myself. I pulled the old seat and then FishPapa left for the day before I could get him to install the new one. He’s the one who reads directions, you know. Turns out this installation was the easiest in the world. Oh my.

This ClickTight feature is amazing! I feel like an old gramma who exclaims, “They sure didn’t have this in MY day!” I’m glad my carseat years lasted long enough for me to witness the easiest installation ever. No more fussing over straps, getting my hand or rings stuck in the back of the seat, tightening a safety ring thingy and all that jazz. Open, strap, shut. Voila. That seat isn’t going anywhere. It’s pretty remarkable.

  1. The install is unbelievable! I saved up and Amazon had a great sale. I never want another brand of seat!

  2. Lee Anne says:

    Our car seat is fine, but my girl would really go for the one with the pink flowers, and the additional safety features will be good 🙂

  3. We have this exact same car seat for my youngest! When my first was born I had the graco infant carrier, then learned all about Britex and it’s the brand we’ve stuck with for all 3 children! Like you, I’m crazy about safety and it’s just a bonus how easy they are to install! Yes they are expensive, but to me it’s worth saving up for a buying on sale or when a pattern is discontinued many stores will put it on clearance.

    • I know they are all safety-tested to the same standards, but I find the LATCH connectors SO easy on the Britax, I have a Pavilion for my daughter and it is so much easier to install than the Graco MyRide I had. So glad I was able to get both kids a Britax

  4. Christina G says:

    I love Britax! We’ve had two convertables and they are so easy. I’ve tried others and nothing compares. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. This carseat is amazing! LOVE that installation video!!! My oldest is almost 17, and I remember so many times struggling, sweating and swearing to get those carseats installed!!! Uggghhh~

  6. Thank you so much for this –
    Baby is outgrowing his cArseat, and we need to switch carseats around so everyone is safe before the booster seat expires!

  7. Wow!! This is exciting! I hope my girls get to win one! What a great giveaway! Much appreciated 🙂 Love your site!!

  8. That’s very kind of you to give away a Britax seat. You will make someone very happy. We had 2 Britax seats and were satisfied with both of them. My son grew out of the Marathon, so we bought the larger Regent model (now discontinued) that was good to 80 lbs., which he probably wouldn’t have reached until high school. I finally switched from the Britax Regent to a booster (Clek Ollie – it latches into the Latch system) about halfway through my son’s 8th year. Even though he’s well over 8 years old, we’ll probably keep him using the Clek Ollie until he’s 4’9″ (just took a quick measure, only 3 inches away!).

  9. Melanie A. says:

    Great giveaway! I am a car seat geek, and would love a Britax one day! We’ll have kids in car seats for MANY more years, so this would be great to win!

  10. Sonya Morris says:

    I love the fun cactus print! My daughter would love to have her big girl car seat to have that print!! Thank you for the great giveaway!

  11. Rebecca Orr says:

    This seat would be perfect for my son. He needs a new one. He likes the color red, so I would choose the Congo color for him if I won. Thanks for the chance and for the great review and information.

  12. Hi. We got one too and it’s great. I bought the tan one, to ward off the Texas heat, and wish it had a pattern to hide dirt. But I’m so glad to have something safe for my 3 year old to be able to be in, with the 5point harness, until he’s old enough for the booster seat.

  13. Cinthya Martinez says:

    Great giveaway! Love the Congo color. Fingers crossed!

  14. Amazing giveaway! This would be the perfect seat for my 6 yr old.

  15. Vicki Van Vleet says:

    I love the Britax Frontier that we have. Install is super easy. We will need another car seat in the next 6 months as our Britax Roundabout 50 is expiring. I would love to win this is a amazing giveaway!

  16. With our second baby on the way I’ve been trying to scrape together pennies to buy this seat for my 3 year old! It would be such a blessing to win and I would be forever thankful! Thank you for such a great useful giveaway!

  17. Michele says:

    I have the red seat for my (almost) 5 year old son. He LOVES the seat and even calls it his race care seat. He has plenty of room to curl up his little legs. He looks more comfortable in this seat then he has in any other car seat he’s used. I plan on keeping him in he 5 point harness through his kindergarten school year, then if he wants to he can switch to the booster mode. It’s a nice heavy quality seat.

  18. I love Britax! We bought the Britax B-Agile stroller with the B-Safe carseat for our first little guy. We did choose another brand for his convertible carseat because it has cup holders on it. But I have had my eye on this seat for a while. It’s definitely going to make an appearance in my car.

  19. Awesome car seat!

  20. Thanks for the opportunity to win this car seat! I need to upgrade my son’s car seat soon!

  21. Valerie G says:

    My daughters are in need of a new car seat. This would be such a blessing to win. I love Britax, too!

  22. Kellina H says:

    Britax are the best carseats! Thank you for doing this giveaway- Good luck to everyone! 🙂

  23. Wendy stahlnecker says:

    Fingers crossed live Britax

  24. When is the post going to be updated with the winner??

  25. Cristina says:

    We just bought three of the Britax 90, and I must say that the secured fit with the new technology is amazing. Highly recommend it!
