We had a difficult decision to make when buying a 3rd car seat. We wanted all 3 children in the second row due to the boot not opening from the inside and the children not old enough to unbutton themselves in the case of an emergency. The britax eclipse gave us that opportunity. And it is the only car seat on the market(that I found) that could offer this in a car with only a lap belt. It felt sturdy and secure. My daughter hated her rear facing car seat. She would scream from point a to point b with no break. But when she was transferred into this seat it was like a dream come true. We could hear ourselves think again. She was comfortable and high up. Love This car seat.
I absolutely love this car seat. I originally bought one in 2013 for my first child. It was a bit tricky to fit in the car at first, but once in was sturdy and supportive for my little one. He seemed to love it as well, always falling asleep in it and it is easy to recline once they do fall asleep.
I was so impressed with the car seat I purchased another one when it was time to for my little girl.
I brought this car seat for my little one when he was 12 months old. I went into mothercare and they fitted a few car seats into my tiny fiat 500 and this one was the one that fitted best. I tried my little one in it and he seemed very comfortable and ever since he loves it. It looks great in my car and not too bulky and it’s easy to take my little one in and out and easy to tighten and loosen the straps. I have washed this once and it’s very easy to take the cover off and put back on. It was a little tricky to fit into my car the first time but now I know how to do it it’s very quick and simple. Overall I love this car seat it safe, strudy and great value for money.

I have nothing but good things to say about this car seat. We purchased it first in 2016 for our eldest daughter and we found it so easy to fit and simple to use that we purchased another in 2017 for our youngest daughter.
They both seem very comfortable and that makes us happy!
I found it VERY easy to fit and I do get confused by things like this easily, usually, so knowing I could fit it was fantastic.
This is a great car seat as long as once it is installed you do not take it out often as it is heavy, large and bulky. I do feel more secure placing a baby in these larger ones then the small portable ones.
We bought this as a cheap car seat as it is hardly ever used. My little boy loves that he can look out of the window. It is really simple to fit into the car. My little boy appears to be comfortable whilst he is in this seat. The belts can be a bit fiddly to adjust and after a few times found it easier to do this out of the car. The only thing I can fault is it is only forward facing.
Merge used this chair instead of another high cost branded swivel chair we had as this one is light to move, easy to insert and reclines easily for sleepy toddlers. We have two cars that we use and we also need to take flights during the summer so it was essential we own a chair that wasn’t cumbersome yet still extremely safe. This ticked all our boxes and my daughter is extremely happy in it. No over heating in the warm weather and easy to get her in and out. Would highly recommend!
Different recline positions, ease of securing in the car
Forward facing only

This is a good car seat for those who do not mind having their child forward facing. My boy hated being rear faced and loves getting into this seat. The straps are easily adjustable but i find they can sometimes get stuck and require a little tug.
I especially love that you can recline this seat, which is perfect for car naps and preventing the head from falling forward.
My LG doesn't mind being in it and it does what it's meant to do. It's just a bit of a pain to fasten into different cars. It's easy to take my LG in and out and easy to fasten her and change the length of the straps.
My little boy has been in this car seat since he was around 9 months old. He loves it. It’s comfortable for him and at a reasonable height so he can see out the window on longer journeys. I’m hoping to get this for my daughter in the coming months.
I brought this for my baby as soon as she turned 9 months old and she loves it! You can adjust the seat so it’s upright or pulled back for the comfort of them sleeping. It is very easy to put in and out of the car and very light weight to hold. I would highly recommend.
We are really happy with this car seat first it fits in our car perfect and also is easy to fit then secondly our daughter fits in it comfortable and loves how much room she has definitely recommend this product.
Had this for my first born and bused for my second too. Bought this for its ease of use. It’s extremely comfortable for both children. They would both happily fall asleep within minutes of starting a journey. It’s super easy to use with the adjustable straps and my children could not get there arms out which is a big ask. Has super comfy shoulder and neck pads which stay in place and don’t slip don’t. The fact that you can recline it too in one gesture is amazing once baby has fallen asleep. The only thing I would of liked is if it had a adjustable head rest for when baby got a lot bigger but in grand scheme of things it’s not important. If I could change it in anyway I would have more patterned fabrics available. Would I recommend this car seat to others of course I would. It was great value for money
The car seat is lovely and comfortable, my son is 2.5 years old and still has loads of room in it. It’s got impact side shields which is also brilliant too. We were in an accident last year and the car seat kept my son in safely without any problems. Only weakness is that it is bulky and and nightmare to strap into the car itself .
The Britax Römer Eclipse boasts side impact protection and a unique pitch control system which will reduce your child's forward movements while seated. Its slim base means the Eclipse is the ideal solution for smaller cars.
Suitable for children from 9kg/20lbs to a maximum weight of 18kg/40lbs (approximately 9 months to 4 years old)
Side impact protection
Multiple recline positions
Slim base to fit smaller vehicles
Can be installed using either the 3 point seat belt or a 2 point lap belt
