The Britax Advocate 70 CS: A Top Notch Britax Convertible Car Seat
Why don’t you write anything about the Britax Advocate 70 CS? This was what one of my visitors asked in an email last week.
It’s a good question because the Britax Advocate is a great car seat. It might even be considered the Cadillac of Britax convertible car seats.
Possibly the Best Britax Convertible Car Seat
When it comes to the best convertible car seats, Britax makes most of them.
The Britax Marathon 70, the Britax Roundabout 55 and the Britax Boulevard 70 Cs are all top car seats.
The Advocate is probably the best of all.
It’s a rear facing seat from a child’s weight of 5-40 pounds and front facing up to 70 pounds.
Safety and Comfort Extras
All of the Britax seats are known for their safety and comfort and the Advocate is an extremely safe seat with comfort extras. First it has the same features as the other Britax convertibles.
Small cells in the seat give extra protection in the event of an accident by compressing. This is referred to by Britax as Safecell technology.
Like the Britax Boulevard, the Advocate has integrated steel bars. This is a safety feature that insures a stronger car seat connection to your car and therefore lessens the tendency of a car seat to go forward in a crash.
Additional Safety Features
It also shares another feature with the other Britax convertibles. It's a tether that again slows forward movement and rotation during an accident.
The Britax convertible car seats are similar in most features but the Advocate has cushions that the other seats don’t. These exterior cushions have been tested and shown to reduce impact from the side by 45%. It also gives additional protection to the passenger sitting next to this car seat.
360 Degree Protection
Britax refers to all of these safety features as 360 degree protection. There is no doubt that they help to reduce head, neck and spinal injuries and reduce crash forces.
High Customer Ratings
There are 103 customer reviews for this seat on Amazon with an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 possible. Most users are definitely satisfied with their purchase.
I have to note one reviewer who stated that he expected the Britax Advocate to be very heavy because of the steel bars and safety features. He was surprised at how simple it was to install and that the seat didn’t seem unusually heavy. The seat does weigh 21 pounds.
Amazon sells this seat today for $274.99 including free shipping. This is $105 less than the manufacturer’s recommended pricing.
If you’re in the market for a Britax convertible car seat, the Advocate 70 CS is well worth investigating.
