There has been lots of press lately about the importance of keeping kids in booster seats for as long as possible, ideally until they are at least 4' 9". Car seat safety has become a topic widely discussed among parents and caregivers, and has been receiving increased attention across the country as of late. And rightly so - the safety of your child while riding in the car is of the utmost importance.
Britax has always been known for its safe, well-designed car seats, and now they have raised the bar even higher by creating the Frontier 85, an updated version of the popular Frontier. The Frontier 85 is a forward-facing car seat that later converts into a belt-positioning booster seat for an older child.
The Britax Frontier 85 has a 5-point harness that can hold a child between 25 and 85 pounds, and in booster mode, the Frontier can hold a child between 40 and 120 pounds.
The Frontier 85 also features the Britax patented True Side-Impact Protection™ feature in its adjustable headrest, LATCH connectors for easy installation, energy-absorbing EPS foam, a top tether that provides extra control and minimizes movement in the event of a crash, and conveniences such as built-in arm rests and cup holders. And to top it all off, the Frontier 85 is made in the USA and comes in a variety of fabrics.

Haven't found any yet
I chose this car seat for our tall 2 year old toddler as this one is one of safest and love how the 5 pt. harness will grow with my son as he gets older. We won't have to change car seats for years to come due to the range for weight/height combinations. Our son loves his car seat and we will be buying another for our 1 year old daughter.
Hard to Install
Extremely safe seat for my tall 4 year old. He'll use it for the next few years. Love the 5 pt. harness, LATCH, and overall safety.
Safe, Easy to Adjust, Comfortable, Stylish, Easy to Clean, Easy to install, Sturdy
researched TONS of car seats for my 6 and 7 year olds--and after much review-my pediatrician recommended a 5 point harness booster for as long as possible. it's THE safest! this seat has the widest range for weight/height in the business.
It's easy to clean, adjust and install!
