Safe, comfortable, hands down best purchase
I did a ton of research when looking for the next step up in a car seat from the infant carrier. At the time, this was listed at the 3rd best option on Consumer Reports and fell within a reasonable price point for you get. It has a steel frame which is essential to absorb an impact. It's very cushiony and comfortable with sturdy foam around the steel. I had no problems with the installation and in fact installed and re-installed it in different vehicles, as needed, in only a couple minutes. The seat cover is easy to remove and wash, which is a necessity. I 100% recommend this seat over cheaper, less safe options.
