Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

I have used Britax seats for both of my daughters and I love them. This seat in particular is big and comfy. It is sturdy and the Britax safety standers give me peace of mind. Keep in mind this is a big seat and when rear facing it may not fit in all vehicles. Overall I love this seat and would highly recommend for first time and experienced parents alike.

Great car seat that grows with your child

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

I watch a friend's child during the summer months. Her son uses the Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat, and I am very impressed with this car seat! I install this car seat in my car at the start of each week. It is very easy to install the Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat. I feel confident that I have gotten a snug, secure installation of this car seat each time I install it in my car. I have watched my friend's son for the past three summers and he has used this car seat for all three summers. I am very impressed that this seat grows with him and it is comfortable safe an effective for infants all the way through preschool aged children. While the upfront investment is a little steep, it is clearly worth the investment in the long run.

Ease of Installation
The Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat is incredibly easy to install!

Child's Comfort
The fabric is incredibly soft and the padding is comfortable for the child.

Ease of Use
I love that the straps of the Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat do not get tangled or twisted. This is important when trying to secure a wiggly toddler in a car seat!

Car seat I can trust

By 

from USA

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

We love the Britax Roundabout 55! It was easy to install and easy to take out of our car which is great when you use a car seat in more than one vehicle. We have a compact car (a Dodge Neon) and it fits nicely in there. Our son always seems comfortable and the straps are easy to tighten and loosen. It is best to get him all buckled and then to tighten the straps, likewise, keep the straps buckled and loosen them all together before removing child from the seat-- this make it much easier than loosening or tightening one strap at a time! The material is soft to touch on the seat and the shoulder straps. The car seat also has velcro on the sides to hold the straps in place when you are placing your child into the vehicle. We purchased this in the Onyx color so in hindsight I may have purchased a lighter color because the black picks up a lot of heat from the sun. Our son is currently 17 months old and is still rear facing easily. We will continue to do so as long as possible. Overall a great purchase!

Perfect convertible seat!

By 

from USA

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

I love this seat! It installs easily and works perfectly as a rear facing infant seat. I feel that my 12 month old is very secure, and he has been using the seat for almost 4 months now. I also love that it installs forward facing easily and is comfortable for older toddlers. This truly is a seat that will grow with baby! The seat and latch system are very well designed and secure. The seat cover fits snugly on the seat and feels good to the touch. My son can easily and comfortably sleep in the seat. The base of the seat is narrow enough to fit 3 seats across in a full size vehicle, which helps a lot for our family of 5! I would absolutely recommend this seat to anyone from the newborn stage through toddlerhood. It is well worth the bit of extra cost as opposed to the cheap seats, and believe me, I've tried many of those! Do yourself a favor and get this one instead of a cheaper model. I love this seat!

Superior safety and confidence

By 

from USA

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

This car seat is worth the cost! The quality of the construction makes me feel confident when I clip my son in for a ride. It is durable and easy to clean if necessary.

Ease of Installation
The straps on the anchor system can get twisted while adjusting. Pay close attention when using in multiple cars and adjusting often.

Child's Comfort
My son complains about his back after long trips of two hours or more.

Support and Safety
Very confident in the durability and safety. You can feel it in the seats materials and construction.

Ease of Use
The anchor system is really easy to use and if you use a seatbelt the seat is labeled well to instruct installation without the manual.
I have used this aircraft approved car seat three separate trips on an airplane too. It fits well in the seat and is easy to secure.

Design
Big seat area to accommodate a growing toddler.

Durability
Quality materials and quality construction. No excessive wear and no damage when switching between different vehicles.

Easy to use, but a little bulky for smaller cars

By 

from USA

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

I am very happy with this car seat. It was easy to install using the LATCH system and is easy to adjust as your child grows. My son is almost 2 and is now forward facing. We've had him in this seat since he was about 10 months and outgrew his infant carrier and I'm very happy with it. It is a little bulky for smaller cars (Honda Civic), especially rear facing, but its totally manageable.

Love our Britax Car Seat

By 

from Austin, TX

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

We purchased a Britax car seat for our daughter after she outgrew her infant seat. We previously had been in a car accident and did a lot of research on car seats that were very safe. We were very concerned about future accidents and wanted to make sure that our daughter would be safe. It has been great. We have used it for two years now and it adjusts easily. My daughter loves riding in her seat.

Ease of Installation
It is easy to snap in and we can move from both of our cars easily.

Child's Comfort
Straps adjust well and my daughter is safe and secure.

Support and Safety
I feel my daughter is safe.

Ease of Use
My husband and I can use it easily, but sometimes the grandparents get confused with how to fasten it.

Design
love it

Durability
has lasted well

LOVE this carseat!

By 

from Whitsett, NC

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

We have three children and they each have a different brand of carseat. All three of them have used this Britax and we absolutely love it! We actually purchased a different brand for our son but after he cried the entire time during a 5 hour car ride, we quickly took it back to the store. We had purchased a cheaper carseat and decided we would spend the extra money on this seat, it has been well worth it! All three children have been comfortable and even fallen asleep in this carseat. It provides protection and is easy to install.

Ease of Installation
Can easily go from one car to another.

Child's Comfort
My youngest fell asleep in it this afternoon while running errands!

Support and Safety
It seems to provide good support and safety (we have never been in an accident with it fortunately).

Ease of Use
Super easy.

Design
Ours looks a little worse for wear since this is our third kid using it (we've had it for about 4 years), but nice design.

Durability
A resounding YES!! Well worth the money.

Love it!

By 

from USA

Comments about Britax Roundabout 55 Convertible Car Seat:

We bought this carseat ago 14 month ago.
Pros: it is convertible.
It is comfortable.
I like the velcro patches for belts to make strapping baby easy.
Love the color!
Cons: the fabric of cover is not the best. Although it looks and feels great - after couple of washes it lost its form.
Car seat comes without cup holder - but you can purchase one and install it easy.

Ease of Installation
I like that it has very easy snap-on latches, So you don't have to use car belts to secure it.

Child's Comfort
My kid (she is 27 pounds) still looks very comfortable in it

Support and Safety
It has one of the highest safety ratings

Ease of Use
It is easy, but it is just a car seat, not a spaceship.

Design
I was looking for something not baby-ish. Black and grey is exactly what I call stylish for a carseat.

Durability
It is durable, we have been using it for 14 months and there is no sign of breakage.
