This seat is awful. Leans back too far (so my child was constantly straining his neck to sit forward) and the clasps just stopped working after 6 months making it totally unsafe too. Total waste of money!… Read Full Review

What an odd review! The seat has a button under the front allowing you to recline it for when baby wants to sleep, or move it to upright so they can look around more. this reviewer obviously didn't read the instructions!

“I have had four of these car seats - two per car. ...”

Written on: 26/01/2010

I have had four of these car seats - two per car. Each has lasted from birth until my children were just under 4. You do need to read and understand the instructions to change the harness settings but once I had done it twice I found it really easy to do. Washing the covers has been simple enough and I have had no problems putting them back on. I went on to sell all four of the car seats (having never been in an accident) in very good condition. Take care of them - they are worth every… Read Full Review

This car seat is the bane of my life : awkward and difficult. After several months of trying to sqeeze my baby into it and miserably failing to adjust the straps I have thrown it out. It is the worst and most shoddy item that I have bought in my whole life. Do NOT buy it… Read Full Review

I totally disagree with this review. I have had one of these car seats for my grandaughter for the past 3 years. I am an old age pensioner who suffers with arthris in my hands and I managed with no trouble at all to get my grandaughter in and out of the car loads of times. Change the seat belt when she got bigger and take the seat in and out of the car. Would suggest she wrote this review on a bad day!

“We bought the Britax Eclipse for our grandaughter. ...”

Written on: 16/08/2009

We bought the Britax Eclipse for our grandaughter. It is very comfortable for her and easy to adjust. However the base unit is badly designed and cuts into the leather upholstery of our car seat - we have had to put padding underneath to protect the seat. Also when she is not in the seat, it rattles dreadfully and we have had to put a strap around the whole thing to cut down the very annoying noise. So very mixed feelings about this car seat, but would not have bought it had we known how… Read Full Review

I will always have Britax car seats. Easy to install and clean. don't make the mistake I made by taking all the straps off to clean; it's not necessary and can be tricky to put back together… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/08/2008 by mum2lilypad (1 review written)

I love the Britax Eclipse SI car seat. I searched high and low, read various reviews but this one was by far the best.

I moved my daughter into this seat from a rear facing one at 9mths as she has long legs and suffered car sickness. The day I did this marked a considerable change in our car journeys. My daughter loves travelling now. The seat is well padded and has an excellent recline on it. When she's sleeping I can recline the seat with ease from the driver's seat and she looks so… Read Full Review

“I have now owned the Britax Eclipse SI for over two...”

Written on: 12/10/2006 by Clair (1 review written)

I have now owned the Britax Eclipse SI for over two years and it has grown with my daughter's needs and size. I first bought the car seat when she reached 1 but it is suitable for younger babies and she is fast approaching four now, with still more scope for her growing with it.

What I like is that it blends into the car, it is easy to use and more importantly very easy to fit, which comes in handy when swapping cars or removing for cleaning.

Due to the size of the chair my daughter is able… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2006 by jonesr2 (1 review written)

The Britax Eclipse SI car seat is an amazing buy. We were in an accident where a car went into our car and we went into another car. All the pasangers had whiplash my partner hit the windscrean, the car was a writeoff but my son who was in this car seat he was fine. He's only 7 months but his weight means he's big enough to go in the seat. The car seat didn't move during the accident. He cried for a few seconds out of shock and then he was none of the wiser… Read Full Review

“We bought the Britax Eclipse SI car seat for our son...”

Written on: 14/07/2004 by oneofeach (5 reviews written)

We bought the Britax Eclipse SI car seat for our son at about 9 months and have never looked back. We bought it from Mothercare for £100 which is quite pricey but we knew it was the one we wanted and it should hopefully last a few years, it's very good quality. It has a 5 point harness which keeps him safe and it's so easy to fit into our car. We actually chose this car seat rather than the slightly cheaper model because when our son falls asleep we can pull a little lever at the front and it… Read Full Review

“Britax Eclipse SI - When our daughter was little I...”

Written on: 14/03/2004 by Groovee (27 reviews written)

Britax Eclipse SI - When our daughter was little I knew that we would have to buy a forward facing car seat and that we would need to investigate which one we wanted.

I knew I wanted a Britax one and the two which we narrowed it down to were the Renaissance and the Eclipse. Both were quite similar and were the 2 top ones it seemed in the Britax range.

We popped along to Mothercare and both seats fitted into our car with no problems. But when it came down to it, I found the Eclipse was the one… Read Full Review
