I have two Britax kids seats with the click tight system. I got them at the same time for a good deal. But honestly I hate the strap system. The release mechanism is in an awkward position, and occasionally the straps get caught behind the chair trapping your kid while you really reef on them. Personally I don't recommend this style of Britax seat.

Thanks. Waiting for a good sale on the 4.1 version.

I have this one and the Diono Radian. I personally like the britax marathon clicktight much better. The recline allows ur infant / toddler to nap in a much more comfortable position without head bobbling around. The strap was much easier to work with than than diono. Click tight system makes is super simple to install. Also doesn't take up as much room as the diono radian. I've only got the diono radian cuz it was rated (marginally) better in safety

I have 3 of the click tight models.... How do your straps get caught behind the chair? I've never had that happen before. The excess straps aren't even long enough to get caught if you have them tucked into the back like you are supposed to.

In case you didn't know, the strap out the bottom is what you press to release the arm straps to give more room. Then the same strap is used with a single tug to tighten them once the kid is buckled in. I'm not sure how it's in a bad spot, it's easy to access even with a kid in the seat.

Is this the typical Amazon price? If its deal does it come up often? They seem to be $449 at most retailers. Anyone have real life opinions on the marathon vs. the boulevard? Thanks!
FYI - Graco 4ever is $299 at WM but currently sold out, not sure if it was a price error.

It would be nice if you added some details to your post OP.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

The Boulevard has secondary side impact protection and extra 2" height allowance over the Marathon. I ended up getting the Advocate for the extra side protection compared to the Boulevard.
