    The Chaperone is on the Britax site

    Sorry if this was already posted, I'm in a hurry today and didn't get a chance to check all the posts.

    They also have the Marathon CS up there.

    Is it just me or does the Emma MA CS look just like the Tiffany DC?

    Re: The Chaperone is on the Britax site

    How do you think they are getting their seated shoulder height approximation? Do you think just lowest setting/highest setting? Wondering because the seat, according to measurements online, is about an 1 inch longer/taller than my keyfit, and my ds has an 11 + inch torso, and he still has room to grow in his keyfit (about an inch).

    I really like the infant seat. So, I went to Britax's Canadian web site to see if for some crazy reason they had it on there as "coming soon" as well, and the web site doesn't seem to exist anymore......hopefully it's just down for a short time??

    What does the chest clip look like? I can't tell if it's the Companion's paperclip style, or if it's like the Marathon.

    Loving the look of that infant seat! I'll need to go check it out (but maybe that's just cause I have baby fever).

    Not quite. There will still be the regular RA. The RA50 is more like a Decathlon with a lower weight limit and fewer frills- no lock-offs, no infant insert, no HUGS.


    Oh, I love the Crimson MA/CS. love!

    eh, I like it. I like that they are offering the cow cover, though personally I like the moonstone cover.

    Re: The Chaperone is on the Britax site

    Hmmmm, it looks nice, but was the Companion that expensive? I'm not impressed w/ the price, even if it does accomodate a higher weight/height like the SS1. I'm not sure it'll make it to my reccomended list. Does the handle have to be down in the car? I'm assuming so, do we know yet. I can't wait to see it though and I know lots of loyal Britax families who will buy one b/c it's Britax, lol.

    When I got my Companion in 2006, I'm pretty sure it was $180 (and seemed VERY expensive at the time!).

    I liked the cow and Moonstone covers too, but I did think, "No girly cover? But Britax is famous for girly covers!!!"

    I mean, I can understand that they want to be more gender-neutral with a seat that costs so much, but you know there are SOME parents who will spend the money for a Britax brand name infant seat, but only having one child and know it will be a girl, will want a girly cover. I fear the aftermarket cover market.

    I don't think its either. I looked at the 'product demo' and clicked on 5pt harness. You can sort of see the chest clip. Its definitely not a paper clip style, but its not a huge marathon type one either

    Yes, it is Tiffany. I bet they are definitely going to discontinue the dc now. I also bet the it was probably a better selling cover then the rest of the dc covers, kwim? But I so love the infant padding of the dc...

    How does the seated shoulder height of the Chaperone compare to the SS/SR32?

    Right I saw that on the Britax site but what is the SS1/SR32? Or did you mean that the SS1/SR32 is the same?
