Hi everyone. I'm looking into a second carseat for us. We currently have a britax boulevard which I love. The marathon is about $30 cheaper and wasn't sure what the difference is. Anyone have experience with the marathon? Thanks!

It doesn't have the headwing things the blvd has.

I just wanted to post a warning that, while excellent seats, Britaxes are outgrown relatively early rear-facing compared to other same-cost carseats.  If you have a child under the 30th percentile for height (and torso size) they're WONDERFUL (I've owned many) but for taller or longer torsoed kids there are other safer options available.

Agreeing with Tiredx2. DS just turned forward facing in the Britax in his dad's car but still has a looong way to go in my car so remains rear facing in a Graco my ride 65. I wish we'd bought the Graco first. DS is going on 3 yo.
