Is this old news?



That is a new seat, but they've had seats that rear-face to 40lbs for a year or more now. The Marathon 70, Boulevard 70, and Roundabout 55 all RF to 40lbs.


Britax has had 40 # RF seats for almost 2 years now. The Pavilion is just a new one. The Roundabout 55, Marathon 70, Boulevard 70, and Advocate 70CS all came out in the summer of 2010 and all RF to 40 pounds.

Duh! I knew that!! LOL! I'm just so used to (and love) my 35lb Marathon, I totally spaced that they had new seats:) I just saw this on my FB and checked it out and didn't put 2 & 2 together;) So yep - old news! :D

It's not really a new seat. It's the Boulevard 70 CS. They made the crotch buckle stay forward, added a strap for HUGS positioning, and brought back the rip stitch tether.

FTR, they also made those minor changes to the Boulevard 70 and Advocate 70 CS, but didn't change their names except for adding G3.

As far as I can tell, the Marathon 70 G3 only got the EZ buckle system, not the HUGS straps.
