5.00 rating I loved this stroller - only wish they had a double!! by Judy Collins on April 14, 2007
This stroller my husband picked when I wanted a cheaper chicco. I can't tell you how much I loved it once we had it. It is great for travel. The seat is very roomy. Between the full recline and adjustable leg supports my son could sleep like he was in his crib. The fabrics are very soft, and the detachable bag is a great size and great idea. I could steer it with 1 hand no problem (unlike other reviewer). I wish they made it in a double as now I have 2 under 2! The quality is great. The design is well thought out. I loved it and I am a real stroller enthsiast!
5.00 rating Britax Companion by kate on March 13, 2007
Excellent car seat. Great head support. It is a bit heavy, but worth it. Highly recommend it..
3.00 rating Disappointed by Elrod on January 23, 2007
The overall quality and construction is great but I was very disappointed by the steering and ease of use. The stroller is not easy to fold at all. The steering is not good and is even worse when it is empty. For the regular price it is not worth it.
5.00 rating best and safest ever! by Shelley, MI on January 1, 2004
We love this seat!! It is very safe and easy to use. It goes to 22lbs and 30 inches which many other seats do not.
5.00 rating best car seat!!!! by Tammy, USA on January 1, 2004
My baby has since outgrown his Britax Companion car seat. We had the best experience with it. I felt assured that he was always safe and secure in his seat. We did not have an accident but I know he would have been the safest in that seat over all others if we had. I would look at the car seats that other moms would be carrying and couldn't believe how un-safe they appeared to be compared to mine. They looked like a bucket with straps. Even when my baby was first born, this seat held him securely and it kept his head from flopping around. I recommend this car seat to everyone!
5.00 rating Easy to use by Tim, Keyon, MI on January 1, 2004
We bought both the Britax Preview Stroller after Consumer Reports reviewed the Britax Companion Car seat as the safest of the infant/rear-facing seats on the market. The Preview stroller accommodates the car seat well. The seat snaps in easily to the stroller. The stroller is not overly bulky and many places list it as an "umbrella" stroller rather than a travel stroller. The stroller is very stable as long as you lock it once you unfold it. While at first it is difficult to maneuver with one hand, becomes easier to manage fairly quickly as you learn how it moves. I agree with the previous reviewer that the sunshade doesn't seem to fit quite right, but a few adjustments and it works now. Storage is great and we love the detachable bag too. We'd probably not have looked at this stroller if it wasn't for the CR review of the Companion car seat, but we're glad we did. We did get a jogging stroller as well, for the times when we need more maneuverability. But since infants are not supposed to be in jogging strollers until about 6 months old, we haven't even unpacked that one yet!
5.00 rating great buy as well as very safe and easy to use by Francis, Twin Cities, GA on January 1, 2004
With our first son on the way, I did my homework, checked out all the recalls which I was shocked about the graco products, and found out that consumer reports rate this car seat as number one in safety and as a best buy. My husband and I wanted to go with safety as a priority. So what its high priced but when it comes to my family I would rather be safe than sorry. It was easy to figure out and adjustable straps were the easiest I have ever seen on a car seat. It aint as heavy as I thought it would be either. I would definitely buy britax again!
5.00 rating great infant seat by E, Chicago, IL on January 1, 2004
This is the second infant seat we have used (2nd child). This one is great - so easy to install, adjust, buckle in baby. The only caveat, this seems to be better for slender children. If you have a wider set child, particularly in the head, they may feel a bit snug. Of course, the slender child feels very cozy in the same space.
5.00 rating i did my research by Misty, Colorado Springs, CO on January 1, 2004
I did many hours of research on carseats before my son was born. He is now 2 months old and I'm so glad that I spent the time I did. My initial reason for buying this seat was based on Consumer Report's safety tests...which is actually reason enough. But I now appreciate the added bonuses. The head support is unbelievable and draws many comments. People want to know where they can buy such a great support and are disappointed when I tell them it came with the seat. My baby's head doesn't flop around like all other infants I see. Also, my son just had his 2 month appointment and is already 25 inches long. Most seats only accomadate infants up to 26 inches, I will get my money's worth out of this seat since it is safe up to 30 inches. You won't be sorry if you choose this seat.
5.00 rating keeping grandchild safety in mind by Clark, Moore, OK on January 1, 2004
I still remember nurses at the hospital talking about the Britax Infant Car Seat when preparing the grandson for going home. They hadn't yet seen a car seat that had an inflatable safety cushion around the head, and how securely it kept him in position. And the folks at his nursey also think the seat is really a child safety device not just fluff. The construction and workmanship of the seat is really outstanding. The grandson has used the seat now for almost ten months and is about to graduate into another great Britax product. Some might bulk at the cost but for us it really didn't compare to our grandson and his safety. Our Son and Daughter in-law are always comparing this seat to others and have yet to find its equal. Oh, we also purchased a second base and installed it in a second vehicle, making it very easy to move the seat between vehicles a sedan car and SUV.
