    Britax Frontier - Pink Sky

    Hi - Just reading through the threads and noticed that someone had wanted the pink frontier.

    I special ordered one from Springy's in Hamilton, should take about 4-5 weeks to get here, but at least its not one of the two colours that are available here.

    It's a store in downtown Hamilton. They have a website but it's under construction http://springys.ca/

    I'm debating on a Truefit or a Frontier but I wonder if they would order me a red one hmmm

    Pink and red are both meshy. I hate the fabric, but the colour is pretty... When I saw the fabric at Lifesavers, I was wondering WTH Britax was thinking and that impression has stuck.

    Re: Britax Frontier - Pink Sky

    I'm confused about how they can get a pink one? I thought that all the different colors had to be tested, even though they are the same seat. If Canyon and Rushmore are the only two that were sent to Canada, I would assume that a Canadian Pink Sky does not exist?

    No, the carseat shell itself is what has passed CMVSS 213 standards. Covers have specific standards that they have to meet, but all the covers would meet that standards regarding labeling, thickness & flammability. It's just a matter of Britax choosing to make certain covers available. A manufacturer is free to change buckles, harness webbing, style of LATCH connectors, and covers without recertifying the seat, but as soon as the shell is changed, it has to be recertified. This is true even if it's only adding a cup holder.

    I'm confused. Canyon and Rushmore are both meshy as well. I really think it's nice and my son loves his new seat - much more comfortable than the Marathon for him. Is it a different mesh? I think the point of the mesh is it's cooler.

    Canyon's tan isn't mesh, it's actually like a faux suede... The Canyon fabric is reversed in it's colour pattern, and where there's black on the other seats it has tan and the black is actually the mesh portion that's coloured on the other seats. It makes it seem more plush.

    I have the Canyon so I know what it's like. I just didn't understand why the mesh was such a big deal since they all have them. I've only seen Canyon and Rushmore and they were both the same materials, just different colours. Anyway, I still want the pink one for Victoria.

    Re: Britax Frontier - Pink Sky

    So instead of the faux suede in the Canyon and Rushmore, there's a black material that feels like a cheap piece of felt or something? Uggggh. The mesh is the same, but looks better because it's black. I finally looked at them side by side.
