About this Product
  • Level indicator to ensure proper installation
  • Easier installation
  • Attaches to any Britax stroller without an adapter
  • No rethread harness
  • Premium padding and easy to remove cover


The B-Safe 35 Elite is the premium car seat made by Britax who’re known for their really safe and easy to install car seats.

The SafeCenter LATCH makes installation really straightforward. (LATCH, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, are in all cars made since 2002. They are located between the cushions in your backseat.) You clip the car seat into your car’s anchors and tighten from the middle of the base, rather than on the side. Also the level indicator makes it really clear when your baby is at a safe angle.

Like all car seats on the market, the B-Safe 35 Elite meets the safety specifications from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It features the brand’s exclusive SafeCell Impact Protection which includes:

  • A steel frame
  • Impact-absorbing base
  • Deep shell lined with energy-absorbing foam for side-impact protection

The Elite model has a few features that set it apart from the standard B-Safe 35:

  • Additional layer of side-impact protection
  • Quick-adjust headrest that makes it easier to adjust the shoulder straps to the safe height as your baby grows
  • No rethread hardness that makes it easier to remove the cover when it gets dirty

The safety features make for a heavier than average car seat at 11.5 lbs. Also the car seat is hard to install without the base. Getting it level is tricky, and you may have to use towels or cut-off pool noodles to make for a safe ride. This isn’t the best option if you’re often going to use the car seat in taxis or friends’ cars.

The car seat also features four harness heights with an easy adjust handle and has a removable body pad to keep infants positioned safely. When the car seat gets dirty (which will happen), it can be hand-washed with cold water and mild soap then left flat to dry.

To attach to a stroller, this infant seat is compatible with all Britax strollers (without an additional adapter). An extra car seat base (to install the B-Safe 35 Elite in multiple cars) is also available.


  • Child weight range: 4 - 35 lbs
  • Child height limit: 32”
  • Car seat carrier weight: 11.5 lbs
  • Total car seat weight: 20.5 lbs
  • Car seat dimensions: 17.75” x 25” x 26.5”
  • Includes removable body pad to keep small infants safe
  • Hand wash only

It works fine, but is so heavy that I think another brand would have been better.

The car seat is easy to use and most importantly, very safe. The fabric is also removable and can be hand-cleaned (although it cannot go in the washing machine). The base is easy to click in and out of. Two drawbacks are that it is super heavy and that it does not adapt to many other products (for example a snap and go).

Love this car seat. Super easy to use, very safe, very reliable. Easy to clean. We got the B Ready stroller too, the combo is SUPER easy for our needs.

Very sturdy and well made. Has a ton of padding and really great impact reviews. Love that it is compatible with the BOB running strollers.

This seat is so safe and looks great, but it's too darn heavy!

The safety ratings are what sold me on this car seat. It's extremely sturdy albeit fairly heavy. The peace of mind it gives me is why I would recommend it. We also love our Britax stroller

So easy to use!

This is a great carseat, but it is definitely for babies who aren't on the tall side. TIP: Don't forget to take the little butt cushion out of the seat once your baby reaches 11 weeks old!
