Britax B-Safe 35 Review

The Britax B-Safe 35 car seat is an updated version of the popular B-Safe and is rated as one of the best car seats for infants. This newer model is able to fit bigger children and has more legroom. The maximum child weight limit increased from 30 to 35 lbs. It also has a new deeper shell that’s designed to keep your child safe from flying debris and has a base that is easier to adjust and install.

B-Safe 35 is patented with SafeCell Impact Protection, has an impact-absorbing base, and is made in the USA with global components. Its contoured shell also takes up little space in your car and minimizes side-to-side movement to maximize protection.

Britax B-Safe 35 Safety

Like all baby car seats on the market, Britax B-Safe 35 is crash tested and meets Federal Safety Standards. Britax features:

  • SafeCell Impact Protection, which is an integrated system of safety components that work together to protect your child beyond the established standards. An example of a safety component is its impact stabilizing steel frame through the spine of the car seat reducing forward flex and at the connection points to the vehicle.
  • SafeCell Complete Side Impact Protection, which surrounds your baby in a deep protective shell designed to shield your child from crash forces and debris.
  • Safecell Impact Absorbing Base, which reduces the potential for injury by compressing to absorb energy during a collision.

Britax B-Safe 35 Base

You can purchase a second Britax car seat base. This car seat base is compatible with both Britax B-Safe 35 and B-Safe Elite car seats. You can also install the Britax car seat without the base. This way, you can keep the base in your car and if your baby ever needs to ride in someone else’s car, you can install the car seat without the base. This can help you save money from having to purchase another base.

There are steps on how to install the seat without the base safely in the Britax instruction manual.

Britax B-Safe 35 Compatible Strollers

The integrated Click and Go System allows you to transfer your B-Safe 35 to a stroller easily. The B-Safe 35 works with any Britax stroller with the Click & Go system and quick-release handle. This car seat also works with all Britax and BOB strollers that work with the original B-Safe model. A simple click lets you know that your baby’s car seat is securely attached and ready to go.

Compatible strollers include the Britax Affinity, B-Agile, B-Agile Double, and B-Ready. It is also compatible with the BOB motion stroller using the Click and Go attachments. Using the Britax adapter, you can make the B-Safe 35 compatible with all the other BOB strollers. You can purchase a Britax Travel System with the B-Agile stroller.
