BRITAX G3 Convertible Car Seats

Newly updated BRITAX G3 Convertible Car Seats will be on every new parent’s must-have list when they appear in stores this July. BRITAX G3 convertibles offer visible and clearly labeled safety and convenience features, along with new technologies that add to the revolutionary safety technologies and superior convenience features available on earlier models of these car seats.
The ADVOCATE® 70-G3, PAVILION® 70-G3 and BOULEVARD® 70-G3 feature new BRITAX HUGS™ Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology®. These chest pads are affixed to the back of car seat shell to ensure that they are properly positioned on the buckled child. SafeCell padding on the chest pads, identified by their honeycomb design, are engineered to compress to manage energy and create resistance to the forward movement of a child in the event of a crash.
A new EZ-Buckle System keeps the buckle in a convenient, easy-to-reach forward position, making boarding a child faster and simpler. It can be found on the ADVOCATE 70-G3, PAVILION 70-G3 and BOULEVARD 70-G3 as well as the MARATHONTM 70-G3 Those seats, along with the ROUNDABOUT® 55, have new labeling to identify BRITAX’s Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether The patented 2-point top tether with staged-release webbing anchors the top of the car seat to the vehicle and slows forward movement, reducing crash forces.
All of the newly updated BRITAX convertible car seats continue to offer revolutionary safety features that are easy to see. For instance, all seats have a rigid shell with deep side walls lined with energy-absorbing foam providing side impact protection The ADVOCATE 70-G3, PAVILION 70-G3 and BOULEVARD 70-G3 offer a second layer of protection with energy-absorbing foam in the True Side Impact Protection head restraint that keeps the head, neck and spine aligned. Finally, the ADVOCATE 70-G3 includes Side Impact Cushion Technology®, a third layer of protection, with black energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of child seat to reduce side impact energy by diverting 45 percent of the crash forces away from the seated child. These cushions also provide extra protection for the adjacent passenger.
Additional visible features can be found on all updated BRITAX convertible car seats. Check inside the open-style base for honeycomb-shaped SafeCell Technology®, designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat. Look on the outside of the seat for integrated steel bars that strengthen the seat’s connection to the vehicle and reduce forward movement. These features, along with the side impact technologies, provide 360-degree protection for the child occupant.
BRITAX ADVOCATE 70-G3, PAVILION 70-G3, BOULEVARD 70-G3 and MARATHON 70-G3 convertible car seats can be used rear facing up to 40 pounds and forward facing up to 70 pounds. The ROUNDABOUT 55 can be used rear facing up to 40 pounds and forward facing up to 55 pounds.

That Convertible Car Seat has some neat features. They for sure want a baby to be safe. I just reminds me of when I was a kid...we never really were buckled in seat belts. It wasn't mandatory, like it is now. Patricia
