    Britax Wizard vs. Britax Marathon

    I have a 4 year old son who is fast approaching 40 lbs. We are considering both seats mentioned above. Does anyone have thoughts on the new knob harness adjustment featured on the wizard? Any input would be appreciated.

    The knob is fairly easy-to-use, but keep in mind that you won't be adjusting it often if it's used for only one child. The only problems I can see with the Wizard are the side head wings (some kids hate them, some are OK with them) and the width of the seat in the shoulders area (width would also be a problem with the Marathon). I think that you should try your son in each seat and see which one he likes and fits best in before buying, if you can.
