You can’t be too safe when it comes to traveling with your kids, especially in the car. If you are looking for the latest development in car seat safety, you’ve found it: Britax is enhancing its line of convertible booster seats with the Frontier 85, a combination booster seat that offers the greatest height and weight capacity currently available. Now, your child can weigh up to 85 lbs. and be 20 inches high (in a seated shoulder position) when secured with a 5-point harness. When using the belt-positioning booster, those numbers jump up to 120 lbs. and 65 inches. What does all that mean to you? Your child can remain in his safety seat longer–perhaps much to his chagrin, but as parent, you know that safety always comes first. Frontier 85 offers tremendous versatility, with 10 harness and 3 buckle strap positions. You’ll also appreciate those little extras like the no-re-thread harness and the color-coded belt guides (if you’re like me when it comes to figuring out gear, a little ‘cheat sheet’ that can get my kids buckled up and ready to go faster is a big plus.)
In a Nutshell: We’re just plain “wowed” by the Frontier 85’s functionality. Anything that keeps our kids safe and secure gets our attention in a big way. Look for this Britax car seat in stores later this month.
