I have owned a lot of different car seats over the years (I have 9 children plus I was a baby for 14 years prior to having kids). My 7 month old HATED her infant car seat (Nuna) which was leading to very stressful car rides. I started my search for a new seat. I currently have 3 Diono seats (that still have 6 years left) however, they are TERRIBLE for rear facing!!! I only purchased because I had two RF kids and 1 FF kid. Used them and hated them. I reviewed every seat, every measurement for height/width, etc! I've owned Britax, Clek, Graco, Nuna, Diono .... You name it I've used it! My 2.5 year old also wasn't comfortable in his Clek, so I bought him one to try! Here's my personal opinion - 1. Yes it's "heavy" but really it's lighter than the a Diono and just as awkward as the Britax and Clek. 2. SIMPLE to install! Love that it has dual pulls unlike Diono and Clek. 3. The recline is RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME! I have her behind the drivers seat, fully reclined and I didn't have to move the front seat! (I'm not short, 5'7) and can slip a piece of paper between the seats (if you can't, you need to move the seat forward put alter the recline). 3. My 2.5 yo is forward facing and the seat fits perfectly in the second row! His sister can still skip my to get into her seat. 4. The head rest aspect is super cool! So far, only the 2.5 yo has trialed it. His head didn't flop forward like it did in the Clek, he says it's cozy and soft (sensory issues and he gave it 2 thumbs up!!!) 5. Cup holder is okay. I could take it or leave it. 6. Please be sure to read the manual on regards to the side impact. You don't use both if there are passengers on either side only use on the side next to door / window. I give this seat 5 stars! My 2.5 yo loves it and my 7 month old (knock on wood) is no longer screaming in the car!! *I drive a 12 passenger Chevrolet van for reference*

Has to be the most difficult seat to install securely. Following every instruction it is very difficult not only to install the seat but to get the installation comfortably secure. We also bought a Britax marathon clicktight. Night and day experience between the two. Skip cybex and look elsewhere.
Love this seat !

The safety features are amazing ! My daughter is 3 1/2 and still sits rear facing with no problem, she loves the recline for long car rides . We only by Cybex because there high safety ratings.
Pros
  • Safety , recline , head positioning, comfort,
Cons
  • More girly colors would be nice

Best Car seat that’s not Britax
By Jonathan G.
from Spring Hill, TN
on July 1, 2022
I wish other manufacturers would implement the v shaped top tether system like Britax. That’s what is so nice about Britax is that the v shape tether keeps seat in place. This one has the normal single tether at the top. It has my favorite feature on a car seat and that’s the adjustable head position. My second child was not a car sleeper till I got this seat. My son vomited all over it and I took all fabric off washed and had it back in the car in 1.5 hrs. Pretty easy and simple
Pros
  • Everything
Cons
  • I wish it had a V-Shaped tether.

It is beautiful- I am a big fan of Cybex, we have the Mios travel system from them and I knew this car seat would not disappoint and it is gorgeous. Matches my car interior and is very big so the baby is definitely comfortable in it

Best car seat ever. I used 3 car seats beforeni bought enernis s. Infant car seats and 2 car seats. Both 3 car seats were not eady to clean and ride my kid. But eternis s was so easy to clean . Just take off the seat cover and laundry. Actually other 3 car seats cover were not easy to dettach and they were compose of 3~4 parts. But eternis s seat cover was easy to remove it was just 1 cover. I tumble washed and lay dried it before I install. Easy to install and safe. Love it.
Pros
  • Easy to clean

My husband knows about carseats and how to install the first day it was tight today never being used it was not tight at all. Im extremely disappointed. We have 2 nunas and a chicco and both are secure and very easy to install. I COULDNT EVEN USE THIS PRODUCT. I am planning to return.
Pros
  • Looks nice
Cons
  • Cannot install tightly therefore cannot use

I haven’t had a chance to use this but the no rethread harness and for this seat being as luxe as it is, 200$ on sale is the BEST deal!!! It was even cheaper than chicco seats! Very stylish, comfortable, practical, truly an adorable seat that isn’t an eye sore in my car. Perfect fitting cup holder too. I wanted something for my car for if I have to take kids anywhere that I could just keep for if I ever needed it. (Not a parent but I’m very Type A) I was ecstatic to find something that is extremely safe with LSP and really solid padding too! I feel confident that if something happened (an accident, needing to sit for a bit to get bailed from snow, etc) that a kiddo will hopefully not be injured whatsoever and will always be very comfortable. I get to use it on Tuesday! (Written on a Friday) also it’s very cold where I live (Minnesota) so evenflo disappointed me with its lack of padding. their side impact testing also disappointed me. Found out they don’t do much SI Testing.
Pros
  • Super safe. LSP. Stylish. Metal frame. protects kids well in the event of a car accident. cost efficient. no rethread harness (praise the lord). again, metal frame and stylish. What more do you need from a seat. Anxiety relieving. Ahhh
  • The kid is basically in a bubble.
Best Uses
  • Staying in one vehicle, infants, toddlers and preschoolers. This seat starts at newborn.
Cons
  • Wish it had two cup holders but not a massive deal. obviously bulky. However that?s because it?s super duper safe! on the pricier side of affordable. can?t see other kids as well because sides go up so high, but to me this is a major pro. Feels like the kid is in a bubble.

Wow! You know you're a full-blown MOM when you call a car seat beautiful, but that was my first reaction upon opening the Cybex Eternis. This thing compromises nothing in comfort, safety, or aesthetics. I received the car seat as a part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel and tried it rear-facing as well as forward-facing with the 5 point harness and as a belt-positioning booster (I have a 5 month old, a 2 year old, and a tall 5.5 year old). I was happy with every configuration, so deciding which kid ultimately gets to use it will be the hard part! PROS: 1. The comfort features of the seat blow others I've had out of the water - from the padding to the soft fabric to the tilting headrest, it is lux-ur-i-ous! 2. In safety, the steel frame and Linear Side Protection provide unmatched peace of mind. 3. The denim blue color is gorgeous (more of a silky, rich blue...I'm not sure denim describes it well) and even the tether strap has a cover when it's not being used, making the whole design sleek and appealing. 4. To top it all off, the button/strap to tighten/loosen the belts is the smoothest mechanism I have used and the magnetic buckle holders are genius. CONS: 1. While the mechanisms for adjusting the belts and tilting the headrest felt smooth and well-designed, moving the headrest up and down was more challenging. I liked that the belt path adjusted automatically, but actually sliding the headrest was difficult and felt clunky. 2. I really wish the cover was removable for washing. I'm glad I have a good spot cleaner, but with the incredible longevity of this seat, I would love to be able to give it a good clean periodically! While my kids may not outgrow the seat for 10 years, I'm not sure if they'll be able to avoid spills enough for it to last that long. 3. The seat is heavy and large (both good things for safety and comfort!) and is not ideal for traveling or if you have to move the seat from one car to another regularly. Overall, I would 100% recommend this car seat to someone whose priorities are safety, comfort, and beautiful design.

Beautiful Safe Carseat

I personally love children products which are not only the highest safety standard but also looks really nice. The CYBEX Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat is definitely one of those products! I received the denim colour through the Stellar Product Testing Panel to test out for my honest feedback. Love the fabric and every feature of this carseat. It can easily converts from back facing to front facing and has many recline options which for me is very important since my toddler constantly falls asleep in the car. One of my favorite things about this carseat is their attention to detail. They've added magnets to the side of the chair to help keep the buckle in place so it doesn't get tangled under your child. The best part of the carseat is the safety features. I know my child will always be safe while riding in it since it alerts me if she is too hot, unbuckles or has been seated too long through its unique sensorsafe technology. It will also fit her for a very long time which is nice to know. Highly recommend this carseat to everyone.

The CYBEX Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat is ideal for anyone looking for a product that can be converted from infant to toddler and beyond. My favorite feature of the car seat is the steel-reinforced frame as its durability provides advanced child safety protection and peace of mind for me as a parent. The safety features are top of the line. The are also numerous options in terms of seat belt preference and options which many other car seat brands do not provide. Another amazing feature is the 3-position reclining headrest which helps provide my son with a more comfortable sleeping position. As a mother of a 12 month old baby who is often on the road taking naps, this is a must. Another great aspect of this car seat is the longevity and versatility. It grows with child and can be used and converted from baby (4lbs) to todQAAWWwdler (65 lbs). I have this in my husband's car who usually transports only one of our kids at a time and it is ideal as one is 3 years old and the youngest is 1 year old. This car seat keeps both safe and comfortable. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

Thanks to the generosity of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I received the Cybex Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat in exchange for a review. My 7-month-old daughter is getting harder to carry in her infant seat, so this convertible car seat arrived at just the right time. Upon removing it from the box, I took note of the high quality of the materials used to construct the seat. The fabric is soft, and the seat looks very plush and comfy. I loved the separately reclining headrest. My daughter occasionally naps in the car, and the headrest lets her relax more comfortably. Although the car seat is large (and definitely not something I would want to switch between vehicles on a regular basis), it is not as bulky as some other car seats on the market. Regarding safety features, I especially like the LSP System. It is easy to activate with the quick press of a button, and it gives me peace of mind to have extra protection for my child in case of a side-impact collision. In terms of convenience, I liked the magnetic holders for keeping the straps on the side of the car seat when removing my child from the car seat. My other children's car seats have different ways of keeping the straps out of the way, which do not work as well as the magnets. The only thing I do not like about this seat is how difficult it is to use the chest clip. On the flip side, hopefully that means my daughter will not be able to unclip herself easily as she gets older. I was very surprised to see that this seat can be used for 10 years and that it can be used rear facing and forward facing and then convert to a booster. I'm looking forward to watching it grow with my child!

Thanks to the generosity of the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I received the Cybex Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat in exchange for a review. My 7-month-old daughter is getting harder to carry in her infant seat, so this convertible car seat arrived at just the right time. Upon removing it from the box, I took note of the high quality of the materials used to construct the seat. The fabric is soft, and the seat looks very plush and comfy. I loved the separately reclining headrest. My daughter occasionally naps in the car, and the headrest lets her relax more comfortably. Although the car seat is large (and definitely not something I would want to switch between vehicles on a regular basis), it is not as bulky as some other car seats on the market. Regarding safety features, I especially like the LSP System. It is easy to activate with the quick press of a button, and it gives me peace of mind to have extra protection for my child in case of a side-impact collision. In terms of convenience, I liked the magnetic holders for keeping the straps on the side of the car seat when removing my child from the car seat. My other children's car seats have different ways of keeping the straps out of the way, which do not work as well as the magnets. The only thing I do not like about this seat is how difficult it is to use the chest clip. On the flip side, hopefully that means my daughter will not be able to unclip herself easily as she gets older. I was very surprised to see that this seat can be used for 10 years and that it can be used rear facing and forward facing and then convert to a booster. I'm looking forward to watching it grow with my child!

Excellent car seat with great safety features

My husband and I loved having the opportunity to try the CYBEX Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat for our son! Aesthetically, the car seat is a great color with excellent fabric, and it looks really nice in both our minivan and our SUV. We loved the subtle cushioning and comfort that this seat offers our son while still providing safety and sturdiness. We were intrigued with the Linear Side-Impact Protection (L.S.P.) and loved to be able to use it while our son was in his seat. Any extra protection of our baby boy is excellent and much appreciated, and we feel that it shows the extra thought that went into the design. The 3-Position Reclining Headrest was a great feature to make our son as comfortable as possible in his seat, especially when he falls asleep while we drive. It was easy to adjust, and we saw a difference when we adapted the seat to his comfort level. We look forward to using this seat for him (potentially over the next ten years), and were excited to see that it would last him a long time! Our two daughters (our son's older sisters) wanted to try out their brother's new seat, too, and it was effortless to adjust to their heights and comfort levels. It is obvious that this is a well-designed, safe, and reliable car seat, and I am happy that our son has it. I would highly recommend it! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

They Thought of Everything

My initial thought after using the CYBEX Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat is that they thought of everything! I received this car seat through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and as someone who has used an all-in-one car seat for nearly two years I thought, what could be so different about this one? Guys...it's like they kept everything I loved about my all-in-one car seat and tweaked those little things that drove me nuts every time I buckled in my three-year-old! For example, a slightly larger cupholder than can actually hold a toddler-sized water bottle so I don't have to reach back and yank it out for my son every time he wants a drink. And magnetic belt holders to hold the buckles out of the way. And the straps glide SO easily as you tighten and loosen them. But the pièce de résistance: the reclining headrest. Game. Changer. Every mom hates when their kid's head rolls forward when they fall asleep. It restricts airflow and ultimately isn't comfortable, so you child doesn't sleep as soundly (or as long...). I was skeptical that the reclining headrest would actually keep my son's head from falling forward but it. works. And my son even commented how "cozy" his new seat was, unprompted. This is especially important to me now that we're driving to and from my parents' house 375 miles away and 5+ hours up north to our cabin all summer. Of course I love the added safety features and the fact that this seat will fit him until he's 120 lbs, but the fact that they paid attention to the little details and got those right really made all the difference for me. The CYBEX Eternis has permanently replaced our former all-in-one car seat in my vehicle! For reference - I drive a 2018 GMC Acadia and my son is three years old (30 lbs, 38" tall).

This car seat caught our attention with the beautiful design and fabric, but when we learned that it grows with our child, we were so excited to receive it and get it installed. Being able to use one car seat for 10 years is incredible! It was very easy to install with the latch system and came with clear and simple directions. As a mom of 5, I've tried multiple brands/styles, and I'd have to say that this car seat really impressed me with the safety features. We are in the car often, and the 3-position reclining headrest has been so nice for car naps and being comfortable while preventing my child's head from falling forward while asleep. The quality is very impressive and the steel reinforced frame provide lots of peace of mind while driving. Safety is always my number one priority, with comfort and ease of use tied for second. Both my newborn and my 1 year old have been able to use this car seat, and the ease of adjustment between positions for proper fit plus the quick install reference guide and level indicator on the side car seat has been so convenient for our family that is always on the go! Can't say enough about this car seat, and I'm confident that the quality will last over the next 10 years. I received this amazing convertible car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel.

The Only Car Seat You Will Ever Need

Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I was able to try this AMAZING car seat! I absolutely love how this car seat goes from infant to child; I have three children (8 months, 4 years, and 6 years), and ALL of them can use this car seat, which makes it unbelievably awesome to have it in my husband's car for quick and easy school pick-ups without needing to swap seats. If you have limited storage space like I do, you will appreciate this car seat's extended life and versatility. Safety features are our number 1 priority, and this car seat ticked all the boxes. It's sturdy and doesn't shift. And, I love how the booster still has a full back (not just the seat cushion) with the normal seatbelt fitting across and under a notch - it provides better protection than only a booster seat would. The car seat also has wing-like structures on the sides that can extend to create a bumper in case the seat shifts in an accident! The three-position headrest made this comfortable for all three of my kids regardless of their differing heights and long torsos, too. If you need a car seat that'll last a long time - this is it!

overall great carseat though heavy

I was excited to try a different type of car seat when I received this product to test as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. There were quite a few features that made me intrigued if it would be a good long term solution for our family! After trying it for a few weeks, my conclusion is that it is a great car seat and I would recommend it but would make sure people knew a few things about it first. The positives were: - the whole LATCH system! There's a place to store it when it's not needed -- there is a place to rest your thumb to press it into the seat -- it has a pull tab so rather than needing to get my fingers into the seat and push hard on a button to disengage the latch, the red pull tab was easily visible above the seat crease and with a quick pull I could disengage the latch when needing to move the seat -- and, my favorite, you can tighten and loosen ON BOTH SIDES so it doesn't matter what side of the car the seat is on! - the 3-position reclining headrest! I tried this seat with my 12 month old (rear facing) and my 3.5 year old (forward facing) - other car seats I've tried have a straight back so when they fall asleep their head ends up falling forward. In this seat, I could recline the head portion so their head tended to fall to the side against the headrest - yay! - the hardware (buckle, LATCH, shoulder straps) was all installed in a way that made it easier for things not to get tangled when moving straps around. - the fabric has so far spot cleaned incredibly well! Gunk from food pouches? Rubbed with damp washcloth and it was like new! - the safety features - I had not seen a pop out side on a car seat before and it made me feel like they had more protection from potential side impact. - the longevity - being able to use this car seat from birth to 120lb can be a huge plus for families not wanting to buy a seat for different stages! - easy to change positions back-and-forth at the bottom of the seat and up-and-down for the headrest/straps. - I like that the bottom of the seat flips open without having to remove the cover - makes it easy to change the strap positions or guide a seatbelts through While using it, the things I wish were improved were: - the weight of the seat - this is not a seat we could easily move between cars. Weight is somewhat subjective based on your strength, but as someone who lifts weights regularly, I found it heavy. My mom is a very active person and said it's the heaviest seat she's had to move. Even if you don't plan on moving it between cars that often, it makes taking it out to clean a hassle. - ease of removing and putting on the seat cover - I felt like I was going to stretch the fabric to the point of tearing when trying to take it off to clean. It was a bit cumbersome to get the cover back on, too - the edge needs to fit into a crease around the outside and my fingers took a bit of a beating getting it back in. BUT like I said above, the fabric spot cleans super well so you might not need to wash the whole thing very often. - The cupholder sticks far off to the side which makes it hard for the kids to grab things in it and wouldn't allow for positioning in the middle seat if I needed to get three seats across. Other things I noticed: - The material is very soft which is great for the kids to be comfortable sitting in but I wonder if in a few months it is going to show pulls in the fabric like another seat I used that had a similar feel. Not happening yet (which is great) but something I'll be keeping an eye on. - the tightening strap is has a plastic piece around it that, when I had the seat rear facing, would pop up when I was tightening because of the angle I needed to pull the strap at. When I looked closer, it looks like it's made to come off of tabs but there isn't a way to press the tabs in - it just comes comes off and tilts when it's pulled on hard enough at a high angle. Hope the tabs are durable! - the shoulder straps sometimes get stuck when I'm trying to loosen them - one side will loosen just fine but I'll have to pull pretty hard on the other side and it does a little pop before loosening. They are enclosed on the inside of the seat so I can't see what's going on. It doesn't happen every time but I'm wondering if the straps will have a shorter life than the seat (e.g., if the strap is getting caught on something and ends up fraying). - the buckle has a cloth cushion around it which makes it comfy for the kids - it is really hard to remove which is great for not randomly falling off but also hard to take off and put on for cleaning. I'm torn on if I like it or not ... I'm giving this carseat four stars because the LATCH system is even easier than the already easy LATCH system, it has what appears to be top-of-the-line safety features, the fabric wipes up super well, it's easy to adjust the straps/headrest but the weight and difficulty of removing/putting on the cover makes it so it wouldn't be my very first choice/recommendation.

Other things I noticed: - The material is very soft which is great for the kids to be comfortable sitting in but I wonder if in a few months it is going to show pulls in the fabric like another seat I used that had a similar feel. Not happening yet (which is great) but something I'll be keeping an eye on. - the tightening strap is has a plastic piece around it that, when I had the seat rear facing, would pop up when I was tightening because of the angle I needed to pull the strap at. When I looked closer, it looks like it's made to come off of tabs but there isn't a way to press the tabs in - it just comes comes off and tilts when it's pulled on hard enough at a high angle. Hope the tabs are durable! - the shoulder straps sometimes get stuck when I'm trying to loosen them - one side will loosen just fine but I'll have to pull pretty hard on the other side and it does a little pop before loosening. They are enclosed on the inside of the seat so I can't see what's going on. It doesn't happen every time but I'm wondering if the straps will have a shorter life than the seat (e.g., if the strap is getting caught on something and ends up fraying). - the buckle has a cloth cushion around it which makes it comfy for the kids - it is really hard to remove which is great for not randomly falling off but also hard to take off and put on for cleaning. I'm torn on if I like it or not ... I'm giving this carseat four stars because the LATCH system is even easier than the already easy LATCH system, it has what appears to be top-of-the-line safety features, the fabric wipes up super well, it's easy to adjust the straps/headrest but the weight and difficulty of removing/putting on the cover makes it so it wouldn't be my very first choice/recommendation.

Excellent car seat with great safety features

My husband and I loved having the opportunity to try the CYBEX Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat for our son! Aesthetically, the car seat is a great color with excellent fabric, and it looks really nice in both our minivan and our SUV. We loved the subtle cushioning and comfort that this seat offers our son while still providing safety and sturdiness. We were intrigued with the Linear Side-Impact Protection (L.S.P.) and loved to be able to use it while our son was in his seat. Any extra protection of our baby boy is excellent and much appreciated, and we feel that it shows the extra thought that went into the design. The 3-Position Reclining Headrest was a great feature to make our son as comfortable as possible in his seat, especially when he falls asleep while we drive. It was easy to adjust, and we saw a difference when we adapted the seat to his comfort level. We look forward to using this seat for him (potentially over the next ten years), and were excited to see that it would last him a long time! Our two daughters (our son's older sisters) wanted to try out their brother's new seat, too, and it was effortless to adjust to their heights and comfort levels. It is obvious that this is a well-designed, safe, and reliable car seat, and I am happy that our son has it. I would highly recommend it! Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this convertible car seat.

They Thought of Everything
By Samantha

My initial thought after using the CYBEX Eternis S All-In-One Car Seat is that they thought of everything! I received this car seat through the Stellar Product Testing Panel, and as someone who has used an all-in-one car seat for nearly two years I thought, what could be so different about this one? Guys...it's like they kept everything I loved about my all-in-one car seat and tweaked those little things that drove me nuts every time I buckled in my three-year-old! For example, a slightly larger cupholder than can actually hold a toddler-sized water bottle so I don't have to reach back and yank it out for my son every time he wants a drink. And magnetic belt holders to hold the buckles out of the way. And the straps glide SO easily as you tighten and loosen them. But the pièce de résistance: the reclining headrest. Game. Changer. Every mom hates when their kid's head rolls forward when they fall asleep. It restricts airflow and ultimately isn't comfortable, so you child doesn't sleep as soundly (or as long...). I was skeptical that the reclining headrest would actually keep my son's head from falling forward but it. works. And my son even commented how "cozy" his new seat was, unprompted. This is especially important to me now that we're driving to and from my parents' house 375 miles away and 5+ hours up north to our cabin all summer. Of course I love the added safety features and the fact that this seat will fit him until he's 120 lbs, but the fact that they paid attention to the little details and got those right really made all the difference for me. The CYBEX Eternis has permanently replaced our former all-in-one car seat in my vehicle! For reference - I drive a 2018 GMC Acadia and my son is three years old (30 lbs, 38" tall).

Super impressed

This car seat caught our attention with the beautiful design and fabric, but when we learned that it grows with our child, we were so excited to receive it and get it installed. Being able to use one car seat for 10 years is incredible! It was very easy to install with the latch system and came with clear and simple directions. As a mom of 5, I've tried multiple brands/styles, and I'd have to say that this car seat really impressed me with the safety features. We are in the car often, and the 3-position reclining headrest has been so nice for car naps and being comfortable while preventing my child's head from falling forward while asleep. The quality is very impressive and the steel reinforced frame provide lots of peace of mind while driving. Safety is always my number one priority, with comfort and ease of use tied for second. Both my newborn and my 1 year old have been able to use this car seat, and the ease of adjustment between positions for proper fit plus the quick install reference guide and level indicator on the side car seat has been so convenient for our family that is always on the go! Can't say enough about this car seat, and I'm confident that the quality will last over the next 10 years. I received this amazing convertible car seat from the Stellar Product Testing Panel.

The Only Car Seat You Will Ever Need

Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel, I was able to try this AMAZING car seat! I absolutely love how this car seat goes from infant to child; I have three children (8 months, 4 years, and 6 years), and ALL of them can use this car seat, which makes it unbelievably awesome to have it in my husband's car for quick and easy school pick-ups without needing to swap seats. If you have limited storage space like I do, you will appreciate this car seat's extended life and versatility. Safety features are our number 1 priority, and this car seat ticked all the boxes. It's sturdy and doesn't shift. And, I love how the booster still has a full back (not just the seat cushion) with the normal seatbelt fitting across and under a notch - it provides better protection than only a booster seat would. The car seat also has wing-like structures on the sides that can extend to create a bumper in case the seat shifts in an accident! The three-position headrest made this comfortable for all three of my kids regardless of their differing heights and long torsos, too. If you need a car seat that'll last a long time - this is it!

overall great carseat though heavy
By hhills

I was excited to try a different type of car seat when I received this product to test as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. There were quite a few features that made me intrigued if it would be a good long term solution for our family! After trying it for a few weeks, my conclusion is that it is a great car seat and I would recommend it but would make sure people knew a few things about it first. The positives were: - the whole LATCH system! There's a place to store it when it's not needed -- there is a place to rest your thumb to press it into the seat -- it has a pull tab so rather than needing to get my fingers into the seat and push hard on a button to disengage the latch, the red pull tab was easily visible above the seat crease and with a quick pull I could disengage the latch when needing to move the seat -- and, my favorite, you can tighten and loosen ON BOTH SIDES so it doesn't matter what side of the car the seat is on! - the 3-position reclining headrest! I tried this seat with my 12 month old (rear facing) and my 3.5 year old (forward facing) - other car seats I've tried have a straight back so when they fall asleep their head ends up falling forward. In this seat, I could recline the head portion so their head tended to fall to the side against the headrest - yay! - the hardware (buckle, LATCH, shoulder straps) was all installed in a way that made it easier for things not to get tangled when moving straps around. - the fabric has so far spot cleaned incredibly well! Gunk from food pouches? Rubbed with damp washcloth and it was like new! - the safety features - I had not seen a pop out side on a car seat before and it made me feel like they had more protection from potential side impact. - the longevity - being able to use this car seat from birth to 120lb can be a huge plus for families not wanting to buy a seat for different stages! - easy to change positions back-and-forth at the bottom of the seat and up-and-down for the headrest/straps. - I like that the bottom of the seat flips open without having to remove the cover - makes it easy to change the strap positions or guide a seatbelts through While using it, the things I wish were improved were: - the weight of the seat - this is not a seat we could easily move between cars. Weight is somewhat subjective based on your strength, but as someone who lifts weights regularly, I found it heavy. My mom is a very active person and said it's the heaviest seat she's had to move. Even if you don't plan on moving it between cars that often, it makes taking it out to clean a hassle. - ease of removing and putting on the seat cover - I felt like I was going to stretch the fabric to the point of tearing when trying to take it off to clean. It was a bit cumbersome to get the cover back on, too - the edge needs to fit into a crease around the outside and my fingers took a bit of a beating getting it back in. BUT like I said above, the fabric spot cleans super well so you might not need to wash the whole thing very often. - The cupholder sticks far off to the side which makes it hard for the kids to grab things in it and wouldn't allow for positioning in the middle seat if I needed to get three seats across.
