There’s nothing like an updated product to save time writing a full review. Find the old review, update the details and presto, new review! The original Frontier was a pretty good combination booster. In fact, I’ve been using one daily for over a year and a half. We’ve even reviewed it twice, HERE and HERE. So why the new Frontier? Basically, Britax took the old one, improved the maximum height and weight limits and then went on and addressed all the issues they heard about from customer feedback, like this thread on our forums. Plus, they did it in just over a year and a half. Very impressive!
So, the Frontier is no more. It has been replaced with the Britax Frontier 85 (see our Britax Frontier 85 SICT comparison here). In addition, the Regent will be phased out, too. The Frontier 85 is a “Harness-2-Booster” or combination (combo) forward-facing child restraint and belt-positioning booster seat. Using the harness forward-facing, it is for children over 2 years, weight from 25 to 85 pounds and from 30 to 57 inches tall. As a booster, it is rated for children starting at a minimum of 40 pounds and 42 to 65 inches tall. In booster mode, there is now a 120 pound weight limit. This is not the same product with higher numbers attached to it. It is revised and improved in many ways
