The Britax Boulevard is a convertible car seat that accommodates children from 5 to 65lbs. It has a steel frame and is a very heavy seat. This Britax seat also has a proven "click-tight" installation system and full LATCH system compatibility. The click-tight adjustments allow parents to quickly and correctly secure the seat in their cars.
The Britax Boulevard comes with an adjustable backrest/headrest with 14 different levels. Finding the right height for your infant/toddler won't be an issue. What may be an issue for some parents, however, is that the cover is not washable. The company advises not to wash their covers, but instead to only spot-clean them, which is not always ideal.
The Britax Boulevard sets up as rear-facing for infants and toddlers up to 40lbs. In forward-facing mode, it's rated for 65 lbs. The car seat comes with shoulder pads and a belly pad but it doesn't come with a cup holder.
We learned of a few quality control issues expressed by Britax car seat buyers. Parents have reported frayed straps, click-tight mechanisms breaking, and the crotch buckles being way too short for some toddlers. Parents also note that a seat such as the Boulevard is extremely heavy to move around.
