I've been buying Britax since 2012. They never disappoint. And this seat is much easier to use than any in years past. Took me about 5 minutes to get it into the car from the box. My son sleeps a lot better in it and is overall seeming more comfortable than in the even Flo seat I had before. I won't be skimping again.

Saved my son's life!!
This carseat saved my son's life!!! My husband was in a head on collision a week ago and has extensive injuries.... the other driver was killed in the accident, but my son barely had a scratch!! He is 15 mths old and 30lbs wearing a 2T... he a big boy but we continued to have him rear facing. Being rear facing in this carseat is what saved his life!!! Im attaching a photo of my husband's truck so you can see the seriousness of this accident! And a pic of my son today. This carseat is worth every single penny 10 times over!!
All around great car seat from birth to youth
Easy Installation & Very Comfortable
As baby girl has grown out of her infant car seat, which could be clicked into multiple bases housed in different cars, we have moved on to a convertible, all-in-one car seat. This means we are not as flexible for transferring this car seat between cars, because installation is not very easy. So, we were looking to buy another all-in-one, convertible car seat and weeSpring Parent Panel gave us the opportunity to try the Britax Allegiance Convertible Car Seat. This car seat impressed on two major fronts: ease of installation and comfort. Baby girl is 10 months old, so we use this car seat in the rear-facing, infant configuration. It attaches to the metal loops of the back seat with a snap, removing these hooks is simply done with the push of a button. My absolute favorite part of the car seat is the design of the tightening straps. Made with wide loops on the end of these straps, the Britax Allegiance Convertible Car Seat is easily tightened and secured (see photos). We also appreciate the comfort of this car seat, as the padding around baby girl's head and shoulders is sturdy and provides great support. The shoulder straps click into a padded buckled, which eliminates any accidental pinching of baby girl's legs during buckling. The shoulder straps have comfortable pads that cover the plastic adjustments parts and have a rubber alignment bar to ensure proper buckling, making sure that both shoulder straps are level before snapping into place and tightening (see photos). Safety straps are tightened by pulling on a strap on the front edge of the seat and loosened by pushing up on a concealed button just below the buckle. Our baby girl is very tall for her age, so we had to adjust the height of the headrest, which is housed with the shoulder straps; thus, adjusted the height automatically adjusts the height of the straps. No more manually fishing straps through tiny holes to accommodate your growing child. The only negative about the installation of this car seat was that initially setting the recline of the seat and height of the headrest were a bit clunky and required more strength than anticipated to move each part. But after doing it a few times, the kinks worked themselves out. Overall the Britax Allegiance Convertible Car Seat meets our safety and comfort needs and makes transferring between cars a breeze. Thank you to the weeSpring Parent Panel for giving us the opportunity to test this great product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Got 2 of these for our cars and we love them they grow with the child
I have a few britax car seats and receiving the Britax Allegiance Convertible Car Seat did not disappoint! Installation is quick and easy and the design is simple and classy. Britax is wonderful for comfort and safety. There were a few differences I noticed and loved. First, the tether strap to anchor the seat is shorter than my other seats. This was great because it leaves less strap to bother with and have to hide. My favorite part of the seat is the size and quality of the crotch/belly cover. It actually makes putting the little one in the seat easier and it won't fall off and get lost like most. The attention to detail is why I would highly recommend this seat to anyone wanting a better quality seat for their child. I was given this product to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

i love the anchors to latch in the the car. It didn't look too comfortable for our son, especially when he was smaller.
Nice Attention to Detail
Very well made and durable feeling. I really liked the thoughtful details like the flap that covered the clasp where you click in the straps, they prevent you from pinching your baby. The way the straps held to the sides while putting baby in and out was a great idea and the fabric quality felt great though I wish it were machine washable. I liked the height extender for the head as well. The flexible strap guides felt like they'd keep straps in place and not twist.
The biggest con was its lack of cup holders or armrests or any where my toddler could put his toys when he sat in the seat. For that reason, we chose to not install the seat and kept his previous convertible seat. This Britax would be great for a newborn up to the larger toddler who may need a front facing view.

Plush Fabric, Comfortably Deep Seat - best for forward-facing
Before getting the Britax Allegiance convertible car seat, we had the Clek Foonf (also convertible) for our 4-year-old, and a Britax B-Safe infant car seat for our 19-month old. Our youngest is small and needs to remain rear-facing for a bit longer due to low muscle tone...but he needs a larger seat now. So we tested the convertible Britax Allegiance with him in mind. We love convertible car seats that serve infants through kids.The Allegiance is not an all-in-one (it does not convert into a booster seat like the Clek) but it does work both rear- and forward-facing with 10 harness positions that should serve a baby/child through age 6 or so. Saves money!
First impression of the Britax Allegiance design was positive. We received the black/gray City Dots design. The fabric is plush and soft, and seems super comfortable. Since we tried it out during a very cool month here in Northern California, not sure how the black fabric will handle the high summer temps here. But the seat cover is removable for cleaning - major pro! (our Clek seat cover is not removable). The harness is delightfully smooth - we tested this seat for a couple weeks before writing this review, and I can honestly say we had zero issues with the strap twisting (see attached pic). The harness also has 10 adjustable positions for your growing kiddo.
Other positive design features include the seat depth, which offers nice side "wings" as a head rest for sleeping kids...at least in the forward-facing position. I'm guessing the deep shell also offers extra safety from side collisions.
Installation was a cinch--my husband had no issues. Only issue we had with the Allegiance once installed -- and why I selected 4 rather than 5 stars -- is that in the rear-facing position, it does not recline enough (see attached pic). Our son was sitting too upright. We make at least two very long road trips from NorCal to AZ each year and we need our littles to sleep comfortable without head drooping! This con may be related to the design of the back bench in our Subaru Forester (2015), which slants quite a bit. We did not see any solution to compensate for this, either visually or per the Britax Allegiance installation manual. In the forward-facing position, this is obviously not an issue.
Something else to consider for those with a Subaru Forester...if you need to fit three car seats across the back bench, this would be difficult with the Britax Allegiance, as it's a bit wide at 19" side to side (per my measurements). So, the width is a nice comfort feature, but a bit problematic if you need to accommodate three kiddos on one Forester bench, which we will need to do come Fall 2018.
Overall, this is a well-made, comfortable car seat that I would recommend for most vehicles. Hard to go wrong with the reliability of a Britax car seat. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for selecting my family to test this car seat for free in exchange for an honest review! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Tough to install, otherwise nice!
I was very excited to receive this product through the weeSpring Parent Panel. Upon unboxing the car seat, I was pleased with the design. The seat had mostly dark colors, which is great for a toddler who tends to make messes. The memory foam was super soft, and it looked very comfortable overall. Further, the steel frame was a pleasant surprise, as that is one feature I love in our regular car seat! I noticed some velcro on the lower body of the seat, but initially assumed it was to hold the infant insert in place, which I had immediately removed because we didn't need it. I later realized, the velcro is to hold the straps to the side while you're putting the child in, so you don't have to fish them out from under their butts! This is a feature I've never seen before and I LOVE it. This is also my first seat with the no-rethread harness and I must say, it is SO convenient.
Then came the install. This is where I became frustrated. I have experience with several different convertible seats and have never had much trouble getting a good install. This seat was a first. I prefer the seat belt install to LATCH, as my son is getting older and heavier and I do not want to worry about keeping track of whether or not he's getting close to the weight limits for LATCH. The steel frame on this seat makes it fairly heavy, which brings him even closer to the LATCH weight limit. The belt route for rear-facing was clearly labelled and I expected it to be a breeze, but that was not the case. I could not fit my hand inside the hole beyond my fingers, which made it very, very difficult to feed the belt through, and in the end my hands were sore from being smashed into a place they did not fit. The recline adjustment wasn't very intuitive either. It's on the front of the seat, which makes it difficult to use when rear-facing, as it's pressed against the seat back. Beyond the less-than-ideal placement, it was hard to get the seat to actually recline to an adequate degree as well. I currently have the seat reclined as far as I can get it to go, but am still not happy with it. The indicated line seems to be about parallel with the ground, but my toddler recently fell asleep in the car and when we arrived home I found his head slumped forward, rather than back or to the side, as he does in his other seats. For a small baby who doesn't have proper trunk control yet, this seems problematic. I'm unsure whether the seat does recline more and I'm just unable to finagle mine to do so, or if that's truly as far back as it goes.
All in all, my tall 3-year-old claims to be comfortable rear-facing in this car seat, though his legs look a tad more cramped than they do in other seats. My favorite features are the steel frame, comfy memory foam, and the velcro to hold the straps. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
