The Britax Eclipse is a tried-and-tested, good value car seat, which even fits in smaller or three door cars. What’s more is that it’s narrow enough to fit on planes and trains, which a lot of users really appreciate! Though it’s a little fiddly to fit as you attempt to thread the seatbelt through the back of the chair, it’s not too bad, plus the spring loaded belt locking mechanism which holds it in place feels super secure. This seat is a really super option, especially given the price.

While comfortable for younger ones, a few users were concerned that this seat is too cramped for older children. This seat is complicated to install and not easy to move between cars, however, this does give it a firm fit and gives confidence that your child is safe. The build quality is nice, the higher seat position offers a decent view out of the window, and the harness is easy to adjust. Overall, a great seat, though still a tad overpriced we feel.
