Amazing seat but I think the age should be 2 years - 8 years not 6 months - 8 years.

Another great Britax car seat

published

Upgraded from the Britax Millenia seat for 2.5yearold toddler and very happy with this Britax product. It is expensive but feel you get quality in for of safety and comfort.
It could be improved by including isofix connections to the car instead of use of the seatbelt.

My child picked the good seat

published

My daughter has been using the similar Britax Safe-n-Sound (the rearward facing able) since born and we quite happy with it. Now she needs a bit more space and the old one will go to the second child on the way. Most safety features seem to be similar to other products in the same price range. Britax looks narrow enough to fit 2 seats side by side with ease. Chunky paddling gives safety assurance for our precious cargo.
Fitting to a car without isofix is always an effort, lucky I don't have to do that often. Removal for washing is reasonably easy.

Good, safe car seat

published

This is a great car seat, top of the range and feels very secure and safe. Cup holders are great extra's. I would prefer if the shoulder straps were fixed as they move up and down though, so can be a little bit fiddly. My daughter is comfortable in this seat.

great

published

It's a very good product, and we bought this car seat after reading a lot of good reviews. Seats are very easy to install and unload. It has a smooth fabric that is easy to remove and adjust the harness. Children have always been very comfortable and safe, which is what all parents ask of their children.

Comfortable and seems safe

published

We purchased this seat when our baby outgrew the capsule. It seems very safe and secure, we’ve never had to remove the seat since installation but it seems pretty straightforward.
Bub seems very comfortable in the seat and I particularly like the armrests for when he is a little bigger. One minor drawback is the little organiser is difficult to access because the opening is so close to the base of the seat. Wouldn’t put me off buying it again though.

Keeps your kid safe

published

This seat was easy to install and has a good recline, so my kid doesn’t get the notorious head flop that kids get in some other seats. Kid is not happy with the colour and I’ve noticed a great deal of pilling in the fabric after a very short amount of time.

Our son is very happy!

published

This was a bit pricey but we like the features and it looked very well made and comfortable. It is very easy to install, you just need to make sure the seat protector doesn't fall down while you are putting the seat in. Our child loves holders on the side and the extra incline is great for when he is sleeping. I always double check the fasteners are clicked in securely as they came undone a couple of times, Very happy with this purchase!

Covers wash up like new

published

We’ve had our Maxi Guard Pro for 2 months now and have had to wash twice already due to messy kids. Unlike another leading brand, it washed up like new! Seat covers are soft and keeps the kids cool.
It’s very easy to install, only compliant is you there is only one recline setting and you have to uninstall the whole seat to recline it

Great little seat

published

This was a great purchase, not cheap but definitely good value. Very easy to install and my baby looks very safe, protected and comfortable with plenty of padding and nice fabric. Cons would be hard to clean and also takes up alot of room in the backseat. Great reputable brand

Sturdy, and safe!

published

Britax continues to be a leader in child car seats due to their well established safety record. They are THE name for quality seats and admittedly, they arent cheap - but you get what you pay for, and you cant put a price on your childs safety - so go with Britax! This seat is now onto our second child !

Little man loves it

published

Fits perfectly in our Nissan Xtrail and still enough room to sit two people.
The installation was done by myself - instruction easy to follow but the back harness was too short. So I had to buy another extension which the company could easily include it or make the harness longer in the first place.
Just a tip for anyone looking to buy a car seat or pram. Wait for sale and lay-by it. With lay-by your warranty doesn't start until you pay in full and pick up the item from the shop.

Great car seat

published

The car seat is great and install is easy. However with any car seat we have brought (6) I always have an issue with tightening the harness. It always catches which means I have to put my hand behind to release it which is annoying especially if you have grandparents you want to look after your children or help

Great car seat

published

This car seat is so good we bought one for each car. They are easy to install and most importantly very safe and comfortable. My son climbs into and out of this seat easily, has lots of padding for comfort and 2 cup holders for bottles or snacks. Easy to clean and seat belt very user friendly without getting twisted.

Love the product.. safe and comfortable

published

Installation and uninstall does take some effort.
Very comfortable for our baby.
I really like the arm rest and cup/bottle holder feature.
Maintenance and cleaning is quite easy as you can easily pull apart all parts and put them back together.

Cons

Seat is not ISOFIX compatible which is a shame when most of the seats these days are ISOFIX compatible.

Fantastic seat

published

This was easy to install and my daughter finds it comfortable. She loves the cup holders.

Everything is fantastic apart from tightening the straps. I can only tighten them from the front seat and not from the side as I put her in her seat. The tightening strap is stiff and I am not quite strong enough for it as I have just had a baby and my joints have suffered.

The seat fits well in the back between two other car seats.

A Great safe carseat

published

It did take a bit of fiddling to install but once done it has been great to use. Our now 1 year old is very comfortable, with the bottle holder being extremely handy. The belt clips can be a little difficult to use when you are in a hurry though.

Ok

published

We purchased this car seat for our third after a lot of research. This car seat was top of the list with all the features for comfort and especially the safety features. Unfortunately we had to return it as it did not fit in our car with 2 other seats which was such a shame. It was too wide and we have a jeep compass. Very sad as it looks awesome!!

James Oliver

James Oliverasked

Hi
I’ve installed my seat using the manual provided and checking multiple you tube videos.
However the seat still feels very loose when I shake it in comparison to my isofix chair I had before.
Should you be able to shake the seat when you push it from side to side? It just feels less secure and I’m not sure if something is wrong or not

Details

Features:

  • Britax's Safe-n-Sound Maxi Guard PRO is a sturdy, and much loved, forward-facing baby car seat and a member of the trusted Britax Maxi family - with over 97% giving the product a 4 or 5 star rating.

  • Britax claims that the product can safely be used on children from the ages of 6 months to 8 years, but it is always safer to keep your baby in a rear-facing seat for as long as possible before transitioning to a forward-facing one.

  • For those concerned with the safety rating of their products, look no further. The Maxi Guard PRO ranks 4.9 in build quality, is durable, cushioned and well-protected on all sides with a dual layer Head and Torso Side Impact Cushion Technology™ (SICT™).

  • Thermo5® high-performance fabric with Bamboo Charcoal ensures that your child is kept comfortable in all weather conditions - along with 2 reclining positions to suit your sleeping toddler.

  • A 6 point Hassle Free Harness™ is a key feature which keeps your child securely restrained at all times. Along with the head rest, both features are adjustable to suit a growing child.

  • Practicality is a strong suit, offering ample storage space, cup holders and a full length messy mat.

Reviewers especially love:

  • The security of the well-designed safety features of the Maxi Guard PRO provides much needed protection and peace-of-mind for concerned parents
  • How comfortable the seat is for their little ones
  • The ease of installation shown through a physical manual and a YouTube video
  • Easily cleanable
  • Adjustable headrests & harnesses to support your child as they grow
  • Pouch at front to store snacks, toys & other goodies
  • The design is sleek, gender neutral and modern
  • The brilliant value for money since this product can be used for 7 and a half years until your child is 8 years old!

Things to consider:

  • The product is on the larger side and can take up space in the back sets which may not be suitable if you have a small vehicle or multiple baby car seats in one car
  • The price is in the mid to high range
  • Forward-facing only and not suitable for children under the age of 6 months and not recommended until your child outgrows rear-facing seats
  • Not ISOFIX compatible and will require a manual seat belt installation
