Great car seat, worth the price

  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:The best option for air travel, light, narrow, and easy to use. 

Cons:Only rated to 40 pounds, somewhat expensive, but the step up in quality is obvious.

The Bottom Line: If you travel by air with your toddler, this car seat is the best purchase you can make.  The extra cost is worth the design, durability, and ease of use.


I bought this car seat because I needed a forward-facing car seat for my toddler (who had grown out of his infant seat), and was going on a plane ride soon.  I wanted the smallest, lightest car seat for the height and weight range for my child.  I scoured the internet looking for the best gear for flying with a toddler, and ended up getting this one and not getting some of the other super-expensive travel-specific systems out there. 
This car seat did the job!  It is narrow enough to not even overlap the armrests on the airplane, and was very light, making it easy to carry.  My husband and I put the seat in between us, and we were able to use the armrests on both sides to the car seat!  I could even use the 5-point harness to hang the car seat on the back of our umbrella-style stroller to get through the airport easily. 
For car use, I am also very happy with this seat.  It installs very snugly in the seat, especially when using the anchor installation  instead of the seatbelt installation.  It is also very easy to install.
The only possible negative I see with this car seat is that it is only rated to 40 lbs, where other car seats of this type are rated up to 55 lbs.  But this really isn't a huge factor, because many booster seats are rated as low as 30 lbs up to 100.  So with this seat, you'll transition to the booster a little earlier than with other seats.
Also, there are little velcro tabs that hold the straps open when you are loading in your child, which makes the process so much faster.  Very simple idea that saves lots of time and frustration.
The last thing I will mention is that the entire cloth cover comes off fairly easily for cleaning.  This feature is absolutely necessary for toddlers.
