Britax Roundabout 50 Convertible Car Seat (Onyx)
Side Impact Protection for Added Security
To keep your child safe, the Roundabout 50 includes Side Impact Protection, which is a system composed of the rigid seat shell, the deep side walls, and energy-absorbing foam lining the shell that work together to distribute crash forces, shield from vehicle intrusion, and contain the head, neck and body.

Superior 360-Degree Protection to Minimize the Risk of Injury
In addition to side impact protection, the Roundabout 50 offers a variety of superior crash force management features to keep your child properly positioned and protected. First, the patented, energy-absorbing Versa-Tether has staged-release tether webbing, anchoring the top of the seat at two points to minimize forward movement. For growing children, its tangle free, five-point harness offers four harness heights and three buckle positions for a snug and secure fit.

Superior Fit and Comfort Features
Whether children are watching the world go by or snuggling in for a nap, they'll enjoy that the Roundabout 50 reclines in both the forward and rear position. With additional features which include high-density comfort foam for extra padding, and a plush cover set with a matching belly pad for comfort, they'll always ride in style and comfort.

Superior Ease-of-Use for Safety and Convenience
Packed with perks for parents, the Roundabout 50 makes it easy to secure your child in the proper position without guesswork. Premium, push-button lower LATCH connectors make for quick, simple, and tight installation.

Additionally, a small contoured base ensures a tight installation in all types of vehicle seats. Convenient holders keep harness straps out of the way when you're placing your child in the seat, and a front harness adjuster makes it easy to loosen and adjust the harness system.

The Roundabout 50 Convertible Car Seat is available in the following patterns: Onyx, Berkshire Gray, and Pistachio.

The Britax Roundabout 50 Convertible Car Seat is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

I definitely recommend this car seat.

The cover fabric feels very soft and nice, and my little boy looks very comfortable in it.

The velcro tabs that hold the straps to the side are nice too.

The new Roundabout 50 is a very useful addition to the Britax line, if it matches what you're looking for. It's a somewhat compact seat with the safety and convenience features Britax offers (though with a couple convenience feature changes). And it's Roundabout-level price makes it a very good value, as a safe seat that will have a long useful life.

The notable differences vs. the original Roundabout is that this model can handle a child of up to 50 lbs, and up to 49 inches in height. (The original Roundabout was 40 lbs and 40 inches.) Given that a lot of children will outgrow the height of the chair before they outgrow the weight, this provides another somewhat compact option for parents, and lengthens the amount of time the chair is useful.

By the way, this seat is a "Roundabout" only in concept - a somewhat compact, moderately priced seat (compared to the rest of the Britax line). It isn't physically a version of the original Roundabout. Reportedly it's actually based on the Decathlon, and it does have the same overall dimensions and weight and very similar details like strap heights. (Though the Decathlon has the extra HUGS padding and more pillows.) So you may want to read comments on the Decathlon, too, if you're wanting more info on this new model.

Other important differences relative to the earlier Roundabout:
- Larger (19.5 W x 27.5 H x 25.5 D vs. 18.5 W x 24.5 H x 24 D).
- Bigger seat area (9.5 D x 11.5 W, vs. 9 D x 11 W)
- Heavier (15.5 lbs vs. 13.1 lbs.), but still lighter than many seats.
- Four harness slot heights, so seated shoulder height of 10.75" (rear facing) to 16.25" (forward facing), vs. three heights with a range of 10.5" to 15".
- Three buckle strap depths (2.4", 4.4", 6.4") rather than just one (6.6").

When our son was ready to transition from his infant carrier to a convertible ("big boy") car seat, we read all the Consumer Reports, asked friends and relatives, and then went to BRU to "test drive" all of them with our son. Suffice to say, we selected this seat, no question-- it was absolutely the best, hands-down. We wanted something that could keep him harnessed longer, and accomodate a higher height than most of the other convertibles. AND, it had to be able to fit in my compact car. Remember that the weight limit is not as useful a measure of the lifespan of the seat as the height limit is-- unless you have a really rotund kid, they are going to hit 48 inches well before they hit the 50 lb. weight limit.

Unlike other seats on the market, the buckles on the Britax models are SO much sturdier and clip securely. With other seats, I found myself squeezing and squeezing the buckles just to get it "snapped" in properly-- and this without even inserting the wiggling 7 month old! (And we confirmed this was not just the floor models at BRU by trying the same models out in other stores as well-- we continued to experience the same phenomena)

Many pinched fingers later, we were delighted to try out the Roundabout 50. Although the Britax brand is slightly more expensive, there are some things that are just worth the money. Those things being: crib, car seat, and stroller-- no sense in "cheaping out" on these three necessities, since you will be using them every single day.

In addition to the obviously higher-quality construction, I also appreciated the ease of installation (and so did the firefighters who initially installed it-- I have since done it myself once), and the ease of removing and "reapplying" the cover (for those inevitable baby messes).

Color Name: Berkshire Gray Verified Purchase
I have a Roundabout in one car and this Roundabout 50 in the other car. I bought the Roundabout before the 50 came out, but I wish I had waited so I could have bought 2 of these. The 50 has 3 positions for the bottom belt. My son is in the 90th percentile, so having the option to move the belt a little forward is important. The belt on the Roundabout always leaves a mark on his leg, but it doesn't on the 50. If you're deciding between the two, pay a little extra for the 50!

After doing much research on Britax seats I decided this was the seat for us. I have been told it was made with the shell of the Marathon stripped down. I would best describe it as a stripped down Decathlon (which is made from teh same shell as the Marathon). It is a very affordable, safe seat to use with a child.

Pros of this seat:

**The seat pad is nice and cushioned. Baby loved the seat.
**Just like the Decathlon, this seat has a 3 position crotch belt placement (Marathon does not have this).
**Reclines FFing upto 33lbs. I have been told Britax do not recline FFing but in the manual it does state a FFing recline up to 33lbs. At 33lbs it needs to be in the straightback position. My 2.5yo is just about to hit 30lbs.
**A lot of room for growth. I placed my 2.5yo in this seat and he has 2 more harness slots before outgrowing the seat.
**Affordable. Even though it is only missing a couple features (**see minor cons**, this approx $80-over $100 cheaper than their higher priced models

Cons:
**Can't be used with an infant. The shoulder harness slots must be at or below their shoulders to be used properly. With this seat my 4mo (approx 28") is about an inch shorter than the shortest slots. We still have an infant carrier that he has about 5" before outgrowing.

Minor Cons: These are things the Marathon and Decathlon have, which makes this seat stripped down version.

**No HUGS. Not a big deal for me. They just ensure the chest clip is level with the armpits and not at the belly.
**No shoulder pads. Technically using the shoulder pads from the store that many use void the warranty of the seat, and the straps are a little rough.
** No seatbelt lock off.
